As a busy mom over 40, I try my best to make healthy choices to maintain my health and appearance. This holiday season, we are busy enjoying family memories and getting into the holiday spirit.
Healthy Aging in 2017
Once 2017 arrives, it will be the year of turning 42. I am finding that in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle, I need to pay more attention to to my body for overall well-being.
Getting more sleep and establishing a better going to bed routine is important for healthy aging. When I do not sleep enough, my body aches and I can see it in my face.
Another routine for healthy aging is drinking water. I go through moments where I do the right thing and drink the regimented amount. Then, I can forget something as simple as incorporating more water into my daily routine. I do not think I can afford to do this anymore.
The best natural approaches to healthy aging encompass a diet that incorporates organic foods with low processed foods. This means finding the right combination of low sugar foods, healthy fats, and fruits and vegetables with dietary supplements that provide adequate amounts of nutrients.
Adding nutrtional supplements to my routine with help bring the most to kickstarting my healthy aging routine.
Getting my hair to look as it once did has not been easy. As I get older, I notice that my hair gets split ends more often. I have long hair and I am looking to go with a new style but keep most of the length. Incorporating Douglas Laboratories nutritional supplements will help me unlock my potential to live healthier longer. I am most interested in Ultra HNS (Hair, Nails, Skin). This is a nutritional supplement that supplies high dose biotin, methylfolate, vitamin C, zinc and Cynatine® HNS for healthy hair, nails and skin.* Additional nutritional supplement details include:
- Cynatine® HNS, a patented, solubilized keratin for the health of hair, nails and skin, has demonstrated that it can improve the strength, brightness and appearance of hair, nails and skin, as well as reduce hair loss associated with washing.
- Cynatine HNS has also been shown to be capable of supporting healthy skin aging and improving the strength and luster of nails.
- Vitamin C is essential for the synthesis of collagen, which is the building material of all connective tissues, such as skin, blood vessels, tendons, joint cartilage and bone.
- Zinc is important for growth, immune system function, protein synthesis, antioxidant mechanisms and wound healing.
- Biotin (a B vitamin) supplementation after six months has been shown to support nail firmness and thickness, and to reduce splitting.*
Another product from Douglas Laboratories that I love for my nails is Biotin 8 mg. It is nutritional supplement that supports a healthy glucose metabolism, nerve function and nail strength.* Biotin, also known as vitamin B7, is a critical water-soluble vitamin that is an essential co-factor for a number of metabolic carboxylation reactions, including carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism.*
