Four Top Tips for Healthy Ageing

A dash of exercise, a dollop of healthy eating and a sprinkling of supplements make the perfect recipe for healthy ageing. Here are a few simple tips to help combat wrinkles, slow the onset of age-related diseases and prevent memory loss:

  1. Exercise the Stress Away

Exercising is a fantastic way to keep the body feeling and looking young. Regular activity that gets the blood pumping releases ‘happy chemicals’, called endorphins, into the body that help to reduce stress and anxiety.

Exercise also keeps the heart healthy, reducing the risk of stroke and heart disease.

Lighter types of exercise, such as Pilates and Yoga, are especially kind on the joints, using only body weight to strengthen the core stomach muscles, lengthen the body and encourage a leaner figure. Any form of regular exercise boosts longevity and lowers the risk of contracting diseases like cancer, hypertension and dementia. Gentle walking, swimming and jogging are perfect options for cushioning the body.

Supplements, such as Vitamin D and Garlic are a great addition to exercise, as they reduce hypertension and aid in maintaining a healthy heart.

  1. Weight Management

Maintaining a healthy weight puts less pressure on the joints, helping to alleviate painful symptoms of arthritis and osteoporosis, which can be triggered by old age. Regular exercise such as walking is perfect for helping with weight management. Supplements such as Metabolism Formula are a handy tool to boost the metabolism, helping to manage weight more effectively.

  1. Maintain a Healthy Diet

Eating a balanced and varied diet will encourage healthy ageing. Fibre is important for maintaining and improving digestive health. Probiotics are the perfect supplement for warding off infections in the digestive system and maintaining a healthy gut.

Diet also plays an important role in skin health. Fish Oils help to keep skin looking soft and smooth, and can be found naturally in oily fish such as mackerel and fresh tuna, but can also be taken as a supplement alongside a balanced diet.

Flaxseed Oil, Soy Beans, Canola Oil, and Omega 3 Fish Oils can also improve memory function and slow the onset of Alzheimer’s.

  1. Antioxidants for Wrinkles and Circulation

Co Enzyme Q10 is a supplement that can be combined into a healthy diet to achieve healthy looking skin. This supplement is a common ingredient in many skin care products, and is a great antioxidant that reduces lines and wrinkles, improves blood circulation and encourages skin repair and regeneration. Plus it helps to neutralise harmful free radicals that trigger ageing, control blood pressure and reduce cholesterol levels!

It’s important to invest in the health and wellbeing of the mind and body at an early age – even the smallest of changes to diet and exercise routines can have a positive effect over the years

Why it’s Important to Set Realistic Goals

No one likes to fail. But many of us set ourselves unrealistic targets when it comes to fitness and inevitably fall at the first hurdle.

Everybody aims to lose three stone in a week, visit the gym every day and never touch refined sugars and carbohydrates ever again. However, by creating these impractical goals we set ourselves up for failure – guilt is boosted, motivation is curbed and the endorphin-releasing benefits of a good workout are lost.

Here’s how your customers can prevent that from happening:

By being honest about abilities and goals

Setting initial goals that are easily achieved creates momentum and boosts motivation. It’s normal to feel disheartened when impossible targets can’t be met. Simple objectives, such as doing five extra reps or running five more minutes at the next workout session are really useful starting points to build upon. Slowly increasing each fitness goal as ability levels improve make each one feel that much more attainable and improves stamina, strength and muscle mass over the long term.

By buddying up

Exercising with a friend makes fitness training more fun. Fixing joint gym dates, attending classes and discussing fitness goals with a buddy can be inspiring. Plus it pushes people forward to do better, creates competition and becomes a social activity rather than a solitary chore. Supplements like Amino Acid Complex with Glutamine can improve performance, deliver a better workout and retain muscle mass, helping consumers to make the most out of that 30 minute exercise routine.

Making a visual diary

Before and after pictures make fantastic incentives to keep moving upwards and onwards with fitness targets. Collecting daily photos and comparing them after a month will highlight the positive changes to muscle definition and weight loss that have occurred after intense resistance training. Taking Testero NTSHO and Power Whey Protein encourages muscle growth and support recovery in between weight training, making them a duo of indispensable supplements for body sculpting.

Creating a motivation board

Placing inspirational quotes, photos and pictures on the wall can remind people to stick to fitness goals and give them the drive to continue upping their targets. If they want to lose weight for a wedding or special event, posting the invitation up somewhere in sight will revive their waning dedication to their ultimate fitness goal. Combining regular exercise with the Xecut Shred XTFM boosts the metabolism, increases energy and promotes body fat reduction; it’s a useful supplement for sustained slimming.

By using these 4 pointers to set realistic goals you customers are less likely to quit their new training and health routine. With a mixture of helpful supplements and motivation, clients will be on their way to achieving their objective.

4 Supplements to Keep You Looking Good This Valentine’s

The holiday of romance is upon us. With almost three quarters of the UK population planning on celebrating Valentine’s Day this year, sales of chocolates and flowers are expected to sky rocket. However, there’s more to making the most of February 14th than giving gifts –everybody wants to look their best for their sweetheart on Valentine’s Day so here are some ideas you can recommend to your love-struck customers:

  1. Vitamin E and Co-Enzyme Q10

Perfect for repairing the skin, Vitamin E is a fantastic supplement for people who are passionate about protecting their complexion. This fantastic antioxidant encourages collagen production, smooths the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is ideal for preventing cellular damage and reducing the risk of premature ageing, great news for customers that want their skin to look youthful and refreshed for their Valentine. Vitamin E can’t be produced by the body so it is essential that customers eat foods that are rich in Vitamin E, like broccoli, avocado, tofu or spinach, or take a hassle-free supplement. Co-Enzyme Q10 is another antioxidant that promotes cell renewal by neutralising free radicals that create wrinkles and lines. Combine these two supplements to create a rejuvenating duo that safeguards skin from damage

  1. Hair, Skin and Nails Formula

This superb mix of vitamins and minerals encourages hair growth, strengthens the nails and adds a touch of radiance to the skin. The formula delivers nutrients to the hair follicles, nail bed and dermis to produce glossier hair, durable nails and blemish-free skin, making it a fantastic February pick-me-up.

  1. Omega 3,6 & 9

Regularly taking Omega 3, 6 & 9 fatty acids can help to maintain healthy skin and reduce the risk of heart disease. Although fatty acids are present in some types of oily fish, such as tuna and mackerel, most people don’t eat enough fish to acquire a sufficient amount in their diet. That’s where supplements come in – they’re easy to combine into an existing healthy diet, and help to enhance the appearance and texture of the skin in a short period of time.

  1. Power Whey Protein

Protein is vital for building muscle, slimming down the physique and improving athletic performance. Taking protein powder before or after a workout enhances endurance and boosts muscle mass, ensuring that the body appears leaner, fitter and toned. Recommend this XFN product to clients who are keen to enhance their weight training workout and attain better results. Provide a selection of health and beauty supplements to your customers and help them to create a personalised plan that meets their individual needs this Valentine’s.
