Folic acid
 
Folic acid is an important nutrient for cellular reproduction and cell growth. Women of childbearing age, particularly those planning to get pregnant, should increase their intake of B vitamin folate. They are available over the counter for everyone in their 30s.
 
Iron
 
Another important mineral for women in their 30s is iron. Women are at great risk of developing iron deficiency, which can cause them to feel tired, and also increase the chances of infection and more.
 
Vitamin D
 
Vitamin D will help you absorb the extra calcium you’re taking. It also supports heart health and can even help in your weight loss journey. That’s a win-win.
 

 

Magnesium 
 
This mineral is important as it helps your body make protein and bone, and keeps your blood sugar stable. Women with magnesium deficiency may experience muscle cramps, unexplained fatigue, mood disorders, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, nausea, and muscle weakness.
 
Probiotics
 
These “friendly” bacteria are good for your gut. These supplements can help with digestive issues like diarrhoea or IBS and may even protect with allergies.
 
“One should focus on eating right and having a healthy lifestyle — that will help with your overall wellness. And also, always check with a doctor/dietitian before taking supplements,” said Batra.
