The Best Supplements for Women Over 50

While most people tend to feel mentally young forever – at least until their young mind encourages their older body to do something that results in unexpected aches and pains – as we age, our bodies change, and so do our nutritional needs.

This is especially true for women who are 50 years or older. They need more omega-3s like DHA in their diet, more antioxidants to fight the signs of aging and more vitamin D and K, which research has shown might help support the body in preventing the onset of osteoporosis. (Ref. 1)

According to the medical editors at, now is the time to start taking supplements if you haven’t before, being sure to take supplements that are suitable for your needs and will help your body feel as young as your mind. (Ref. 2)

Keep That Energy High

It's common to experience a decrease in energy levels as we age. For women over 50, maintaining that energy level is vital to allow us to feel the best. If you are already on a healthy diet but finding it difficult to stay physically active because of low energy, consider supplementing your daily nutrition with CoQ10 and Omega 3.

CoQ10 is a natural antioxidant that is involved in energy production within cells. Studies show that CoQ10 supports mitochondrial function and energy production, and CoQ10 supplements may promote better energy levels. As we age, the CoQ10 levels decline naturally in the body, especially over the age of 40. Hence, a good quality CoQ10 supplement is a great option to help lift CoQ10 levels and keep the energy level high.

CoQ10 has also been investigated for its potential benefits in other areas, including heart health, brain function, and exercise performance. Combined with Omega 3, the essential fatty acid for brain function, joint, heart, and immunity, our Omega 3 / QH Premium CoQ10 is an excellent choice for women over 50.

Love Your Heart

Females experience heart issues differently due to their biology, and this requires women to pay special attention to heart health.

Experts have found that the estrogen hormone helps relax the arteries walls, allowing blood to pass through them more easily. However, as menopause approaches, the levels of this chemical begin to drop, and the risk of heart disease and other cardiovascular issues start to increase, such as elevated blood pressure, increased LDL cholesterol, glucose, and triglyceride levels.

More importantly, research has also indicated that women tend to have less obvious symptoms of heart attacks, which can lead to delayed treatment.

So, if you are at the onset of menopause, take extra care of heart health through positive diet and lifestyle changes. Consider a quality supplement to provide additional protection to heart health; nutrition like vitamin D3, K2, Red Spinach, and Omega-3 & 7 are all beneficial to support artery health and help maintain a healthy heart. Check out our CX8 - the synergistic action of 8 ingredients that aims to improve heart health conditions and support against arterial calcification.

Vitamin D for Stronger Bones and Immunity

Vitamin D is essential to help the gut absorb calcium, promoting strong and healthy bones. Vitamin D is also helpful in reducing inflammation and boosting immune function, cell growth, and cardio health.

Women need vitamin D to maintain strong bones. In general, women are at a higher risk for osteoporosis than men. Evidence shows that women have more difficulty stimulating the mechanism that builds bone tissue when their estrogen levels are reduced. This particularly impacts women during menopause.

Women also need vitamin D for healthy reproductive health. Vitamin D receptors are found in reproductive tissues, and researchers discovered that low vitamin D levels are linked to decreased fertility and menstrual irregularities in women.

Support your immune system and bone strength. You can get vitamin D from our Total Balance, Vitamin D3+K2, Kiwi-Klenz, and Multi-Xtra.

Healthy and Happy Menopause

The most common complaints from menopausal women include hot flashes, sleep troubles, vaginal dryness, and mood swings.

In the United States alone, doctors prescribe approximately 65 million drugs prescriptions per year to women seeking relief from their symptoms, but drugs often come with their own set of undesirable side effects.

If you aren’t getting the relief you need, Hormone-Support for Her might be helpful for you. It’s designed to support natural hormone balance while managing menopause and easing mood swings.

If you are not a fan of customizing your supplement regime, our Total Balance solution might be just right for you.

This complete multivitamin with over 70 bio-active vitamins, minerals, antioxidants & herbal extracts is designed especially for women to help boost optimum long-term health at a cellular level, support immunity, lift energy levels, aid cardiovascular health, digestion, brain health, eye health and more.

Hi Yolanda
Thanks for your sharing this. It is surprising the number of people who find it hard to swallow pills. We know some of our tablets are large but they are not the biggest around. The reason for 7 tablets is because of the number of ingredients the Women’s Premium contains. If we were to make smaller tablets, you would have to take more. You can split your dose of Total Balance Women’s Premium into 2. Take half 3 or 4 in the morning and the rest in the late afternoon. Alternatively, you could switch to the standard version of Total Balance Women’s which is only 4 tablets a day. In good health Sheela

I am 57 years old and I read the comments about the size of the pills and yes they are “big”. I have been taking the Premium women’s tablets for 5 years or more. I do wish they were smaller or lower dosage. It takes me 20 minutes every morning to take all my vitamins and supplements. But I know the great benefit I get from the vitamins and supplements and would not give it up. Looking forward to a more compact vitamin or smaller doses with the same power.

Yolanda June 15 2021

Hi I’m taking the supplements Kiwi Klenz and Omega 3/QH fish oil. I also ordered Total balance woman’s, but I’m finding it very hard to take because of the size of the tablet and the strong yeast smell it has plus having to take 4 day on an empty stomach, it would be easy if it was a capsule and had no odour.

Could you recommend another supplement,i was thinking of trying the Rejuvenator instead. I would appreciate your help. I’m in my 50’s.

Many thanks  

Shirley October 23 2014

Dear Maria,  

From what you have said it sounds as though you have made the right choices with our Total Balance Womens and Natural Energy products. You may however also be interested in our Female Rejuvenator for additional support.  

The Female Rejuvenator is a product specifically formulated to support the needs of the female body. It contains a synergy of herbal extracts to support the female hormones and maybe especially beneficial during the stages of menopause. This can be taken alongside the Total Balance Womens and Natural Energy.  

We recommend a dose of six capsules per day of the Female Rejuvenator for the first three months. This is best split into two doses and taken with or just after food. If taken alongside the Total Balance Womens then you can reduce the dose to just three capsules per day of the Female Rejuvenator after the initial three months.  

I hope this information is useful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.  

Kind regards,

Dear Shirley,

I am sorry to hear that the size and smell of the Total Balance Womens tablets is making them difficult for you to take.

Total Balance Womens is full of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, herbal extracts, amino-acids and anti-aging ingredients, as well as the special blend of extracts which works to support womens health.  The enteric coating does mask some of the smell but I can appreciate that they do have quite a distinct odour.  Actually, we have some customers that absolutely love the smell and others, such as yourself, that find it unpleasant.  You could try coating the tablets in jam or yoghurt, as not only will it mask the odour but also make it easier to swallow.

Alternatively, I would recommend to you Multi-Xtra, our comprehensive multi vitamin.  It contains the same multi-vitamin blend that Total Balance has, and has a smaller dosage of two tablets per day.  The tablets are the same size as the Total Balance, but they can be broken in half or crushed.  They are not enteric coated therefore, can be taken with food.  It has a very mild smell compared to Total Balance.  Multi-Xtra is a wonderful source of daily nutrient support for general health and well-being, and contains the highest quality ingredients we can find.  It may help to provide the body with all the extra nutrients that are not able to be obtained by just diet alone.  

If you were seeking extra support for womens health then I would recommend Female Rejuvenator.  This supplement may help to balance and support hormone levels, help to increase libido and may assist in alleviating the symptoms of PMS or menopause.  It comes in capsule form and is advised to take with or following food.  This would make it easy to open and sprinkle into a smoothie or into some juice with your meals.  The dosage is three to six capsules per day, depending on your symptoms or level of need.  As the ingredients are capsulated, they are virtually odourless.

I hope that this has been of some assistance, Shirley.  We would be delighted to help you with any further questions you may have.

Kind regards

I have always taken Total Balance women along with female rejuvenator. I am 54 and have gone through menopause but still get hot flashes sometimes. What is the difference between premium and total balance? Thanks

Shari September 05 2017

Hi, I am 51 years old, still having my period but irregular, but I’ve been having symptoms like panic, anxiety, vertigo, fatigue, headache, heart palpitation. Just started taking Women Hormonal’s Support, may I know how long will I feel the effect?

maxine May 26 2017

I am needing a smaller tablet. Disappointed to read Total Women is a large tablet.  I have way to many bottles of things I have to cut in half and lose the coating.  What you offer sounds perfect but just cannot do large pills never have been able to and I’m 63. Will keep checking back to see if a smaller tablet comes available even if it means 14 tablets a day instead of seven.

Darrie May 09 2015

Hi, I am currently taking the Women Hormonal Support, I find it very hard to swallow as the capsule is pretty big, also after I take it, there is a strong herbal smell when I burp. will you make this capsule smaller? or can I open the capsule and take it? Please advice

fian May 23 2017

Hi Susie,

Yes, absolutely! While Female Rejuvenator is very helpful for women going through menopause, it can also be a great help after menopause. Some of the ingredients, such as Tribulus can also support healthy hormone levels and this may be beneficial in supporting bone density, health and function.

I hope Female Rejuvenator helps alleviate your symptoms. Do let us know how you go.

In good health,

I am 63. My menopause is already over,but, i am feeling hot all the time. Can i take female rejunenator?

Susie chong June 14 2015

Hi Michele,

You would be absolutely fine to continue with our Female Rejuvenator.

It is a great way to naturally balance out your hormone levels and it can be taken in combination with our Total Balance Women’s and Omega 3.

However, if you feel like you do not need as much support in that area, Total Balance Women’s does contain a female hormone support blend as well.

Our award-winning customer service team are trained to help you tailor your supplement regime to fit your needs. I encourage you to contact them at

Dear Fian,
Our tablets and capsules are not the biggest, nor are they the smallest size. We understand that some people may find it difficult to swallow tablets or capsules. I am also sorry to hear that you are getting the herbal smell when you burp. We recommend drinking any supplement with a big glass of cool water. You could split open the capsule, however the smell and taste of the herbal ingredients will be more obvious. You could mix it with some yogurt to make it more palatable. Thank you for your feedback regarding tablet size and we will forward this on to our Marketing Department.
Kind Regards,
Sheela Eyles (Team Leader)

Hi Darrie,

Thank you for your comment.

I am sorry to hear that you are unable to take our Total Balance Women’s due to the tablet size. We appreciate your feedback and will take this into consideration.

We currently have a range of Omega-3 Minis and our new Zupafood Range which have been formulated with ease of swallowing in mind. You may be interested in taking these for overall health and wellbeing support.

In good health,

I have just turned 70 and up to now have been using very light hormone supplements. However, I feel it is time to stop. Can I still take Female Rejuvenator? I have been taking your Total Balance Women and omega 3 for several years already and shall certainly continue.



Michele Getkate January 16 2016

Hi Shari, thank you for your interesting question. It is wonderful to hear that you have been using our Total Balance Women’s along with Hormone Support for Her (previously known as Female Rejuevenator) to help you through the sometimes troublesome menopausal phase. I am sure you are pleased that this has now mostly passed for you. Total Balance Women’s standard, as well as the Premium option both contain the very same hormone support blend, at the same levels. So in terms of offering support during menopause, using the Premium does not offer you any more benefits in this area. The properties that differentiate the Premium and place it a cut above the standard are its higher amount of certain age defying ingredients and antioxidants. We recommend the Premium for those wanting the very best results from their supplements, and that are happy to take seven tablets per day. We would be delighted to advise you further so that you can be sure you are using the very best products for your needs. Our Customer Relations team are just a call away, or feel free to email us as well at In good health, Rose.

Hi Maxine, it is great that you are being proactive by taking a product to help support you during the peri-menopausal phase, as these symptoms are not at all enjoyable to go through. As our products are naturally based they will work differently for every person. The hormonal system is a very complex one, that may take time to become balanced through using a product such as our Hormone Support for Her. In order to obtain the very best results we advise taking the recommended dose for a minimum of two to three months, after which you will be able to judge how the product is working for you. We would hope that certainly that after this time you will notice some improvement to your symptoms. Our customer relations team would be happy to speak with you personally so that we may provide specific advice for your individual concerns.
