Kolkata, Mar 26 : Direct selling health & beauty FMCG company, Amway India on Tuesday hosted an awareness campaign on the wellness of women, here, in a bid to celebrate the International Women's Month and to educate people about the need of nutrients and healthy lifestyle among women.

The campaign, a part of the series of wellness campaigns across India, aims at creating awareness about the need for a wholesome diet and nutritional supplements for modern day women to ensure proper preventative health care.

Dr. Pritpal Singh, an eminent consultant in nutrition management and preventive measures of lifestyle disorders, elaborated the importance of certain nutrients at the later stages of women's lives like menopause.

While, Dr. Anindita Roy, Head of Nutrition Department, Manindra Chandra College, spoke about the importance of calcium, magnesium and iron at adolescence and pregnancy stages of women.

Dr. Pritpal Singh said, "Women should be cautious choosing their diet in their mid-thirties. Indian women experience menopause earlier than their western countries counterparts and the onset of menopause starts as early as 47 years."

Singh added, "Sometimes, it occurs at a younger age. During this time ovaries have stopped production of eggs and estrogen and progesterone hormone levels start depleting in the premenopausal phase. Soy Protein, Omega 3 fatty acids, Iron, Calcium are some important nutrients a woman should eat more in her mid-thirties."

Speaking of the awareness campaign, Diptarag Bhattacharjee, Vice President, East, Amway India said that, "Today's urban woman, exposed to stress at work and family life ignore a healthy life style and good nutrition in her daily rigmarole of responsibility and encourage in binge eating."

Bhattacharjee said, "Mounting work pressure and growing demands at home leave no time for Indian women for either rest or physical exercise. It is high time to sit back, relax and plan their diet and lifestyle to brace up for the next phase in life."

Bhattacharjee added, "We at Nutrilite have come up with a complete women's range of dietary supplements including Nutrilite Tri Iron Folic, Nutrilite Cal Mag D, Nutrlite Bone Health, Nutrilite Hair, Skin & Nails and Nutrilite Black Cohosh and Soy to cater to various nutritional needs of Indian women."
