With chillier weather right around the corner, now is a good time to start thinking about how to plan for one of the worst parts of the year: cold and flu season. We all notice that we start feeling under the weather right around the holidays, when stress, bad weather, and holiday eating habits all take a toll on our bodies.
People today are facing an epidemic of sleep problems. The science is conclusive as to the harmful effects of not enough sleep — people don't function at normal levels either physically or mentally, which makes them irritable, stressed, and even dangerous in situations where attention and concentration are required, like driving. Poor sleep also impacts overall health and harms everything from your immune system to your muscle strength and your cognitive abilities.
Most of us do our best when it comes to eating healthy, but most do not realize that eating healthy is only as effective as your body’s ability to absorb nutrients. When your body intakes food it breaks down and absorbs each nutrient, having balanced DNA and RNA levels helps to ensure that your body is effectively absorbing all the nutrients it needs. On average, the body only absorbs a small portion of nutrients that it intakes, meaning that a lot of the foods we eat for a healthy lifestyle can sometimes be improperly absorbed.
It's often said that when you're looking for something to give your body a boost, there's nothing better than a natural supplement. It's completely true that Nature can be a treasure trove of healthful additions to our lives, and we can find many different ways to help our bodies, whether you want to fill gaps in your nutrition, speed up your healing processes, recover from exercise faster, or meet other health and fitness goals.
