Health, Life Balance

Do you feel like you’re always tired? Or do you simply find yourself running out of steam in the afternoon? Fatigue is a real problem for many people, and may have one or several causes. You may be pleased to find that you can combat or prevent some common causes of fatigue with a few simple changes.

  • Electronic distractions: Do you read (or text, or play online games) in bed? These activities may cause you to stay up later than intended, disrupting your sleep schedule. Consider banning all electronic devices from your bedroom, including television. If you must have your cell phone in your room (for instance, if it doubles as your alarm clock), try placing it across the room so you won’t be tempted to reach for it in bed.

  • Irregular sleep schedule: One of the most important things you can do for your health is to get regular sleep. For proper health, adults should get seven to eight hours of uninterrupted sleep each night. It’s tempting to try to squeeze more into each day, but your body has its limits; too little sleep can lead not only to daytime fatigue, but to negative effects on your health.

  • Running on empty: Make mealtimes a priority; low blood sugar from poor food choices or skipping meals can leave you feeling sluggish and ill. Each meal should contain both protein and some complex carbohydrates to fuel your body for whatever your day holds. In addition, healthy, portable snack choices like dried fruit and nuts can help you get ahead of the midafternoon crash.

  • Too much coffee: Caffeine’s no substitute for a good night’s sleep. A little caffeine can boost your alertness and improve your concentration in the short term, but you’re probably familiar with the jumpy feeling that too much can cause. Sustained high caffeine intake can raise your blood pressure and your heart rate, which can damage your health. It’s a good idea to gradually cut back on your caffeine intake rather than quitting suddenly to avoid withdrawal symptoms and headaches.

  • Just add water: Dehydration can lead to fatigue, not to mention other serious health problems. One thing you might not realize is that by the time you feel thirsty, dehydration has already set in; your body needs regular hydration to regulate temperature and to keep all of your systems running normally. Drink water throughout the day and keep some handy in your car and at your desk.


Of course, an important part of avoiding fatigue and feeling your best every day is getting regular, nutritious meals. But not many people can say they always eat completely healthy, balanced meals; we’re all busy. That’s where a good multivitamin can come in–supplementation can be a great way to make sure you get all the vitamins and minerals you need, even if your meals sometimes fall a bit short.


Did you know that there are over 20 minerals that are important to your body’s proper functioning? Our Advanced Immune Defense™ (AID) supplement provides them, as well as needed vitamins, in  bio-available form, which means they’ll be easily absorbed by your body. AID also provides phytonutrients, natural plant nutrients that can help your body slow down its aging process and may support your immune system.


In combination with the steps above, a multivitamin can help you to avoid fatigue and keep your body functioning at its optimum levels. We recommend supplementing with Advanced Immune Defense™ for easily absorbed vitamins, minerals, and additional antioxidant and immune system support that may help keep you healthier even during cold and flu season.

Health, Probiotics, Recipes and Nutrition

Studies have increasingly shown that probiotics can help alleviate the symptoms of many types of illness without the use of pharmaceutical drugs. Certain probiotic organisms, “beneficial” bacteria which live in your digestive tract and are part of the natural microflora of your body, are thought to help with immune function and in the prevention of respiratory infections.


However, the most promising area in which probiotics may provide health benefits is in treating digestive ailments. If you suffer from chronic diarrhea, gas, and cramping, you may benefit from the intake of probiotics through  diet and supplementation. These conditions, if unchecked, can lead to more serious health problems down the line. Continue reading “Taking Charge of Your Digestive Health” »
