It has the basic nutritional requirements that a women needs.
Folic acid, iron and calcium content helps meet the daily RDA requirement for a woman.
Reasonably priced and easily available across all medical stores
Manufactured by a trusted manufacturer – Glaxo Smith Kline
What She hates
The claim that it builds blood and bone health is a bit exaggerated. It does provide the nutritional requirements, but it does not mean that it can completely restore a women’s health.
You might need to consult with your doctor if you have been suffering from Osteoporosis for a nutritional supplement specific to your condition.
Women’s Horlicks is cheap, easily accessible and a tasty nutritional supplement. It is good as an everyday health supplement to maintain good health but it shouldn’t be sued with the intention of treating a health condition such as osteoporosis. Please consult your doctor if you are anaemic or suffer from osteoporosis.
Overall, it is an average nutritional supplement, completely safe and tasty to have every day.
