Vitamins are nutrients that are necessary at all stages of life because our body can’t make them. Here’s a quick look at changing nutritional requirements by decade of life.
While this spring is different in many ways than previous springs, pollens are still coming, causing spring allergies for one in six Canadians. If this is you, here are some tips to minimize the all-too-familiar sneezing, sniffling, and itchy, watery eyes that can make spring miserable for many.
Indigestion affects nearly one third of North Americans today. Natural Factors has created a line of premium digestive enzyme supplements to help target your specific dietary needs.
In addition to eating a nutritious diet and managing stress, keeping physically active sets a solid foundation for maintaining a healthy heart. Different types of exercise have different benefits for your heart. While there’s no “best” exercise, regularly taking part in a variety of physical activities will keep your fitness well-rounded and fun.
In addition to managing stress, exercising regularly, and eating a varied diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins, certain supplements can provide extra support for your heart’s health. The top three are omega-3 essential fatty acids, coenzyme Q10, and vitamin K2.
Omega-3 essential fatty acids play critical roles in your health and well-being. EPA and DHA are key nutrients for supporting concentration and learning potential in children, as well as for adults looking to maintain cognitive function and emotional well-being later in life.
Probiotic supplements play an important role in re-establishing a healthy gut microflora and can provide extra support when you have specific health concerns.
On average, Canadian adults suffer from 2–5 colds every year, and if you have a child in daycare or school, chances are that your house is already shaking with sneezes. With more than 200 viruses responsible for the common cold, it’s practically impossible to avoid exposure – but there are ways to support immune function year-round. Step up oregano oil.
Vitamin K2 is a little-known vitamin that is essential for strong, healthy bones and teeth, as well as for cardiovascular health. How does vitamin K support the health of your bones, teeth, and arteries? Before we take a look at the research, it’s important to understand the different types of vitamin K and why vitamin K2 is the one to look out for to support good health.
