General Health Information
Everyone wants more energy and vitality. Developing a healthy lifestyle is paramount to more energy and vitality. Being physically active, eating a healthy diet, keeping our weight within normal ranges, getting plenty of restful sleep, reducing the stress levels in our lives, and maintaining a positive mental attitude are all components of a healthy lifestyle. Minimizing destructive habits such as smoking and excessive alcohol consumption are also very important. Developing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is not always easy, but the rewards are many. Increased energy and an improved sense of well being quickly follow even moderate increases in physical activity or slight dietary improvements. When our bodies are healthy and functioning at their peak, we naturally have more energy and vitality.
Dietary supplements are also an important tool in maintaining energy and vitality. Adaptogenic herbs, ones that help us to adapt better to daily living, such as ginseng and licorice may be helpful. As a result of aging, certain hormones such as DHEA and melatonin may need bolstering with supplements to help revitalize the body. Aging and degenerative diseases can be retarded with the help of supplemental antioxidants. Essential fatty acids help keep our skin and other tissue youthful and supple. Supplementing daily with vitamins and minerals provides further assurance of optimal health and vital energy.
Energy and vitality are the byproduct of a healthy body and healthy lifestyle. It comes from a commitment to avoid destructive habits and embrace healthy ones. Additional supplementation of herbs and nutrients helps to not only maintain but to enhance energy and vitality in our lives.
