What is your date of birth?

We know it’s not polite to ask a woman her age – don’t worry, we promise not to tell. Enter date of birth.

When your body ages, the vitamins and minerals which you need also change. For example, you will, over time, need extra vitamin D to keep your bones strong and your muscles flexible.


Which one best matches your skin color?

With skin of a lighter complexion, the body produces more vitamin D while exposed to sunlight than with skin of a darker complexion. If you are of a darker complexion, you may have a need for additional vitamin D.


Are you exposed to sunlight every day for at least 15-30 minutes?

You need to be outside from 11am – 3pm, every day, in order for your body to be able to produce the amounts of vitamin D that our bodies need. If you are not able to be outside every day, if you avoid sunlight, or are completely covered when outdoors, your body will not be able to produce enough vitamin D.


Are you already pregnant, or do you want to be?

When you are pregnant, or want to be, your body requires a greater amount of certain vitamins and minerals. The Board of Health recommends a supplement of folic acid, a B vitamin, beginning from the time that you decide to get pregnant, until at least up to 12 weeks into the pregnancy. Folic acid can be taken throughout pregnancy, and is important to the development of your unborn child’s central nervous system.

It is also a good idea to supplement with fish oil throughout pregnancy, as it benefits both you and your child.


Are you on a weight-loss diet?

When our diet is composed largely of fat-free foods, it often becomes very one-sided, so it is important that you are still getting the vitamins and minerals that you would normally get through a completely balanced diet. A-vitamins are good for your skin and, together with C-vitamins, ensure that your immune system is functioning optimally, while B-vitamins are important for maintaining energy levels. Our bodies need all of these, if we want to lose weight effectively.


How often and how much do you exercise?

Exercise is good for your health and your wellbeing. If you exercise regularly, you may need some extra vitamins and minerals. B-vitamins and iron are important for maintaining your energy levels, and ensuring that you perform at your best.


Do you feel stressed?

If you are in a stressful time in your life, your body may need extra vitamins and minerals. Vitamins B2, B3, B6 and B12 can reduce tiredness and fatigue. They also contribute to energy metabolism, together with vitamin B1, and all of these aid the normal function of the immune system.


Do you feel tired and lacking in energy?

B-vitamins play an important role in determining your energy levels. Vitamin B deficiency can lead to fatigue and decreased energy.


Is your immune system working properly?

Vitamins A, B6, B9, B12, C, D and the minerals selenium and zinc all contribute to the normal functioning of the immune system. It is important you get them in the right amounts, in order for your immune system to perform optimally.


Do you smoke?

It is scientifically proven that smoking increases the need for extra vitamin C. This is because tobacco smoke oxidizes and destroys the vitamin in your body.


How far along in your pregnancy are you? Or do you wish to become pregnant?

Your body needs a supplement of folic acid, starting from the time you decide to get pregnant, until at least the 12th week of pregnancy.


Do you have sore muscles or joints?

Vitamins and minerals such as vitamin D, calcium, potassium and magnesium are vital for normal muscle function.


Are you a vegetarian/vegan?

Meat contains lots of iron and vitamins B1 and B12. These vitamins are important components to your energy metabolism. Dairy products also are an important source of calcium, which contribute to normal bones, teeth and your body’s muscle function.


How many vegetables do you eat per day?

Vegetables are an important source of a variety of nutrients, including vitamin C, folic acid and potassium.


How much fruit do you eat per day?

Fruits are an important source of vitamin C, folic acid, potassium and fibers. 1 serving of fruit is equal to a medium sized apple, two smaller fruits, like kiwis and oranges, or a bowl of berries.


How many slices of bread do you eat per day?

Rye bread, oatmeal and the like counts for 1 piece of bread.

Bread is an important source of vitamin B, irons and fibers. Choose full grain. It will fill you up, helps to reduce cravings, and makes it easier for you to maintain the same weight.


Do you use butter or margarine on your bread or in your daily cooking?

Margarine is an important source of vitamin A and D, and butter is a good source of vitamin A. Oil for salad or cooking oil does not count. Both vitamins A and D are important for the functioning of your body’s immune system.


How much potatoes, rice, pasta and other starches do you eat per day?

Potatoes, rice, pasta, quinoa, couscous and other starches are filled with good carbohydrates, B vitamins and minerals. The body, and especially the brain, need carbohydrates to function optimally.
