We all have habits, both good and bad, that we would like to change about ourselves – some more than others. Sometimes a life event can provide the catalyst for that change. Like the friend who couldn’t quit smoking despite repeated attempts and then quit cold turkey the day she found out she was pregnant.
We all lead active and busy lives. Each day starts with a long list of to-dos. As we make our way through the list we can get progressively more fatigued. That is not a surprise. We are human after all.
There are many simple things that can be done to protect eye health and vision, including wearing sunglasses year round, reducing exposure to blue light and UV rays and regular exercise.
Oxidative stress and inflammation are significant contributors to many age-related retinal eye diseases, including macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. The last two decades of health research have shown that oxidative stress causes chronic inflammation which in turn can lead to cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Good nutrition plays an important role in how well we age. However, as we age the ability to digest and absorb nutrients decreases. Super Easymulti® 45+ is formulated to be well absorbed with a full complement of vitamins and minerals, effective dosages of powerful antioxidants such as green tea, ginkgo biloba and CoQ10, as well as heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids – all in a convenient softgel.
The Society for Obstetrics and Gynecology Canada suggests taking a prenatal supplement at least 3 months before becoming pregnant. A daily multivitamin is also recommended for women who are breastfeeding. Platinum Naturals’ Prenatal Line has been carefully formulated to support both mother and baby throughout the perinatal period – preconception, during pregnancy and following the birth of the baby.
Inflammation has been coined the ‘Secret Killer’ and it’s the surprising root cause of many age-related health concerns: heart conditions, mental health, arthritis and joint pain. Inflammation can also reduce your energy levels and in extreme cases may cause chronic fatigue.
When it comes to pregnancy you want what’s best for you and your baby. With all the changes that happen to your body, coupled with the joys of morning sickness and food cravings (for some!), making sure you have the nutritional foundation you need for your growing baby is paramount.
