FALL WELLNESS TIPS:

THREE KEY NUTRIENTS FOR FALL AND WINTER HEALTH ARE VITAMIN D, IRON AND CALCIUM.

EVEN THE BEST DIET CAN FALL SHORT OF THESE SO TALK TO YOUR HEALTHCARE PROVIDER ABOUT MAKING SURE YOUR LEVELS ARE BALANCED.

 

Boost your weight loss plateau by increasing cardio workouts-either by duration, frequency or intensity- one or two of these at a time is plenty. Add strength training 2-3 times a week and engage in a variety of activities. Best time? Morning exercisers are most likely to stick with it. Best type? What you enjoy and often with a buddy/group for social support.


PROTECT YOURSELF FROM HEALTH SCAMS BY KNOWING WHAT THE RED FLAGS ARE. ADS PROMISING A QUICK OR PAINLESS CURE, CLAIMS THAT THE PRODUCT IS MADE FROM A SECRET, SPECIAL OR ANCIENT FORMULA, ADS OR OFFERS USING STATEMENTS OR UNPROVEN CASE HISTORIES FROM SO-CALLED SATISFIED PATIENTS, PROMOS CLAIMING TO CURE A WIDE RANGE OF AILMENTS.
