Living a healthy lifestyle means finding and utilizing natural health solutions in one's daily diet. In fact, the vitamin and mineral deficiencies in the modern diet (which is largely made up of processed convenience foods and fast food), is responsible for a great many of society's most dangerous illnesses and health conditions. By making a few simple changes and incorporating more fresh whole foods, one can make a dramatic difference in their overall health.
Building Stronger Bones
The skeletal system is the framework for the rest of the body, so it needs to be strong and healthy. Good bone health starts with protein. And while beef, chicken, and pork are often considered the hallmarks of protein in the traditional diet, other, more vegetarian-friendly sources of protein can also be added to a diet. Foods such as lentils, beans, nuts, seeds, and yogurt are just a few of the excellent protein alternatives available.
Keeping the Heart Healthy
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, but there are things one can do to reduce their risk. Adding foods that are high in Omega-3, -6, and -9 fatty acids , iron, lutein, and other antioxidants will help keep the body's most important organ running smoothly. Adding an exercise program will also help reduce high blood cholesterol and high blood pressure, while quitting smoking and alcohol use will tremendously add to one's heart health, as well.
Protecting the Eyes and Skin
Exposure to high levels of UV rays from the sun can do irreparable damage to the skin and eyes. Therefore, it is important to include foods in one's diet that offer protection from them. Lutein-rich foods like kale, spinach, collard greens, and Brussels sprouts, and beta-carotene-rich foods like carrots, spirulina, and sweet potatoes are excellent natural sources for promoting good eye and skin health.
Beneficial Natural Health Sources
A healthy diet should include foods capable of providing the essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fatty acids, proteins, and enzymes the body needs in order to function at its best. Some examples of these important substances include:
- All of the B vitamins
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin K
- Omega-3, -6, and -9 fatty acids
Astaxanthin and Spirulina Offer the World's Most Complete Nutritional Profile
One of the best ways to help ensure that one's dietary needs are being met is to take nutritional supplements. But, not all nutritional supplements offer optimum health benefits, so it is important to understand which ones offer the best natural health benefits. Astaxanthin and spirulina, when taken together, form one of the most comprehensive nutritional profiles available.
BioAstin® Hawaiian Astaxanthin® from Nutrex Hawaii is made from 100% pure Hawaiian-grown astaxanthin, the most potent antioxidant in nature. Whereas most antioxidants benefit certain bodily functions or organs, astaxanthin is one of the very few that has the ability to move throughout the entire body, providing protection and health benefits to all of the cells.
Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica®, on the other hand, has the highest known nutritional content in the world. This amazing blue-green microalgae is one of the oldest living organisms on the planet, and it offers high levels of:
- Bio-available iron
