You can recognise healthy foods versus unhealthy foods, and you know how to portion your meals, but did you know that there are some foods that are really good for women’s bodies specifically?

Women and men have different common health issues, and certain foods can help women to deal with these by providing the nutrients necessary to ward off the issues before they start, or to treat them once they’re there.

Here are some of these ‘superfoods’ for women:

1. Kale

The health food everyone loves to talk about. Why? Because it is ACTUALLY really good for you! Kale is full of vitamin K, which works with vitamin D and calcium to keep your bones healthy and strong as you age. Women tend to lose a lot of bone mass as they age, especially after going through menopause.

Kale also contains lots of vitamins A and C, so it’s good bang for your buck. If you have a small garden, it’s also really easy to grow and care for. Try it – you might find a fun hobby that is also super healthy!
