National Women’s Health Week is May 13th to 19th and there has never been a better time to take control of your health. Whether you are a woman in your 20’s or your 60’s, the female body comes with its own set of nutritional requirements and hormonal checks and balances. No matter if you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, menopausal, or if you’re simply interested in staying fit and healthy, there are several easy things you can do to support your mind and body. We’ve come up with 8 ways to boost your health during women’s health week including 3 simple natural supplements, Parker Naturals Bee Pollen, Hormone Balance and Hairvescense.
1) Yearly Well-Woman Visit
No matter your stage in life it’s vitally important to keep up with your annual exams. Mammograms, pelvic exams and pap tests are all things that your well-woman visit will cover along with your emotional health and birth control options. This visit will usually be covered under basic preventative care without a co-pay requirement and there are also many free or low-cost health centers that can help.
2) Bee Pollen
Bee pollen contains ingredients that are beneficial for everybody but there are specific qualities in this supplement that may specifically help women. It has been seen to promote fertility and relieve PMS and menopausal symptoms. It could even keep your skin healthy and improve the appearance of varicose veins. If you’re interested in adding bee pollen to your healthcare routine try Parker Naturals Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly and Propolis. This all-natural superfood is packed with essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids and more.
3) Healthy Diet
Many women diet for weight loss and in the race to burn calories it can be all too easy to lose track of the most important thing, health! Eating healthy has nothing to do with pounds on the scale. It means getting plenty of lean proteins, healthy fats, smart carbohydrates, and fiber. Don’t be afraid to indulge in the occasional treat once in a while, practice body positivity and remember the key is always moderation and balance.
4) Hormone Balance
If you are dealing with the changing hormone levels associated with the menopause try a supplement like Parker Naturals Hormone Balance. These powerful tablets contain phytoestrogens which are plant-based estrogens found in certain natural foods. Phytoestrogens are thought to counteract hormonal imbalances and reduce the frequency of menopausal symptoms like hot flashes and mood swings.
According to The Sleep Foundation, women are more likely than men to experience trouble falling and staying asleep. Research suggests that too little sleep can result in problems concentrating, increased sickness and weight gain. Everybody’s sleep needs are different but the average recommendation is a solid 8 hours. If you’re having trouble sleeping try these simple tricks to help you catch some solid Z’s. Avoid caffeine and alcohol in the hours before bedtime, set a sleep schedule and go to bed at the same time every night, and make sure your bedroom a tech-free zone.
6) Vitamin Complex
To maintain optimal health it’s a great idea to take a daily multivitamin. Vitamin A is important for eyesight, vitamin B supports a healthy metabolism, vitamin C has tremendous antioxidant properties and vitamin D helps to strengthen bones. Hairvescense by Parker Naturals is a great way to get a healthy dose of all of these essential vitamins and it’s also been specially formulated to support healthy hair, strong nails and glowing skin too.
According to the Journal of Preventive Medicine, the average man exercises twice as much as the average woman. Even if you’re not a gym rat or a marathon runner there are plenty of benefits to regular exercise including a reduced risk of breast cancer and stronger bones. The most important thing is to find an exercise that you enjoy and stick to a regular routine. Whether it’s a daily walk, yoga or a weekly spin class, aim for a minimum of 30 minutes of moderate exercise every single day.
Water is vitally important to the human body and it’s the one substance that we can’t go without for more than a few days. It’s readily available to us and drinking more of it is an easy way to support your basic health. Drinking plenty of water has been linked to a reduced risk of kidney disease, weight loss and even improved mood. Make sure you’re getting your recommended 11 cups of water daily.
