Product Description

Show the special woman in your life that you care with our Deluxe Women's Health Basket. She'll enjoy the delicious treats while learning how to eat the foods to maintain her good health. There are several different "power-foods" containing vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals that are important to achieving optimum female health and for addressing common health concerns that women face. With the backing of current research, we are recommending the following:

Broccoli: These cruciferous vegetables contain phytochemicals called indoles that appear to stimulate enzymes that make estrogen less effective, a potential help in fighting breast cancer.

Calcium: Foods rich in calcium can be helpful in relieving PMS symptoms, staving off osteoporosis, controlling symptoms of perimenopause and menopause, and promoting weight loss. Our calcium-rich foods include a creamy broccoli soup.

Magnesium: Magnesium is important for breast health and can be helpful in relieving PMS symptoms, staving off osteoporosis, and controlling symptoms of perimenopause. Foods such as nuts and chocolate, yes, chocolate, are good sources of magnesium.

Vitamin B6: Salmon, which is rich in vitamin B6, is important for breast health and can be helpful in relieving PMS symptoms and staving off osteoporosis.

Vitamin E: Found in broccoli, almonds, sunflower seeds, and nuts, vitamin E is important for breast health and can be helpful in relieving PMS symptoms, staving off osteoporosis, and controlling symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. We've included Awesome Almonds, spicy walnuts, and Chocolate Covered Sunflower seeds for delicious, healthful snacks.

Folate (Folic Acid): Folate can help stave off osteoporosis by helping to build and maintain strong bones. You can find folate in broccoli, spinach, and dried beans. To increase your favorite woman's intake of folate, we've included a Bean Cuisine Soup Mix and Spinach Pasta.

Cranberries: Cranberries can help prevent urinary tract infections by acidifying the urine, which can prevent bacteria from adhering to the urinary tract. We've included a fruit mix with dried cranberries, blueberries, and cherries to help your favorite woman include some cranberries into her diet.

Licorice: The phytoestrogens in licorice have a mild estrogenic effect which helps ease irratibility, bloating, and breast tenderness associated with PMS and may help to minimize menopausal symptoms by compensating somewhat for the natural decline in a woman's estrogen levels following menopause. Licorice also contains a fair amount of calcium and an impressive amount of iron. Iron, a trace mineral, can improve fertility and relieve symptoms of perimenopause.

Soy Isoflavones: Soy isoflavones can help minimize symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. The Zoe Flax & Soy Bar included is a delicious pick-me-up with soy isoflavones, and the soy crisps are a great alternative to potato chips.

Apricots: With their impressive amounts of iron, potassium, beta-carotene, and fiber, apricots are a wonderful snack for the health conscious woman.
