Common Vitamin Deficiencies For Women

Women have some vitamin deficiencies that are more common for them than they are for men. Anemia, an iron deficiency, for example, is a vitamin deficiency common in women due to the female monthly cycle and the loss of iron during menstruation. Vitamin B is another common deficiency in women that can be combatted through vitamin B12 supplements or vitamin B12 shots in a medical facility. If you are a woman and believe you are struggling with a common female vitamin deficiency, contact a medical provider for further testing. In this blog, we will take a look at some common vitamin deficiencies for women.

Vitamin B12

Women are commonly deficient in vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 deficiencies can cause anything from irritability, increased stress, lack of sleep, fatigue, and even changes in skin and hair. For vitamin B12 deficiencies, consider a vitamin B12 supplement or liquid vitamin B12. By rebalancing this vitamin deficiency, you can lead a higher quality of life and work towards better health, better sleep, less stress, and overall higher quality of life.


Another common vitamin deficiency for women is calcium deficiency. Calcium deficiency can lead to any amount of symptoms such as pain in joints, muscle spasms, easily fracturing bones, and even in severe cases it can cause nausea, vomiting, and fainting.

Calcium is a very important aspect of our health, but what many people don't realize is that low calcium is often a symptom of a vitamin D deficiency as vitamin D is required to absorb calcium. By reversing a calcium deficiency with D3-K2 supplements and dietary changes, you can prevent calcium deficiency related injuries and achieve a higher quality of life and health.


Iron deficiency is one of the most well known vitamin deficiencies within females due to the monthly cycle. Due to the amount of iron expelled, a shocking percentage of women are iron deficient. Iron deficiency is also referred to as “anemia”, and can cause a multitude of health issues. If you are anemic or iron deficient, you may notice paleness of the skin, weakness, fatigue, brittle nails, headache and dizziness, and cold hands and feet. If you think you are iron deficient, contact your healthcare provider for testing.

Hi Julie,
Yes, you absolutely can! Some people just find it a little thick since there’s so much collagen and prefer to dissolve it in water.


Can I just take the liquid marine collagen & biotin full dose with the dropper by mouth without adding to a drink ?
