As women, we are champions when it comes to managing multiple tasks, and playing numerous roles on a day to day basis. Between being mothers, more-often-than-not full time employees, sisters, daughters, aunts, friends, and household managers – we all too often end up neglecting our personal health and well-being. This constant exposure to the world around us, paired with the fatigue of trying to learning to juggle, leaves us wide open to illness and exhaustion.
It is no secret that as women, we have a multitude of health concerns that simply don’t apply to the opposite gender. With advancements in; naturopathic, scientific, technological and medical research, women’s health has come a long way. Unfortunately, because we are more informed than ever before, all too often, we will find ourselves clamouring for pharmaceutical solutions to health concerns when there are natural aids, foods, supplements, vitamins and minerals that are just as effective without any of the potentially dangerous side effects that often accompany pharmaceutical products.
Single Parent Health
Single parents especially, are always on the go. It’s a rush, rush, rush world – from getting up and ready to breakfast, work, dinner, school, extra- curricular activities, dinner and bed you’re always on the move. It’s no wonder parents are constantly catching themselves mid yawn, indulging in energy drinks, and reaching for another cup of coffee. Parents, YOU’RE TIRED!
Parents, friends, dieticians, family doctors and co-workers will all state the obvious when it comes to your energy levels – and the fact that they’re spiraling towards no man’s land. As busy as your schedule can be – always make time for the basics. Give your body the nutrition it needs, try to give yourself approximately 20-30 minutes of exercise at least three times a week – oh, and SLEEP (you forget to sleep!). You know all of this already, and it’s probably wearing on your nerves each time someone gives you the same fact sheets you’ve been reading for years now. So what else? What else should you be doing to make sure you were operating at your full potential?
Omega-3’s are a powerful way to promote a significant boost to your energy levels – and your day on a holistic level. The fatty acids on omega-3’s are very similar to the fat found in the human body. Two important types of omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA, are essential to optimal cognitive function and increased energy levels, allowing you to focus on the tasks at hand. Because our brains are largely composed of fatty acids, being low on omega-3’s will lead to mental fatigue, illness and difficulty with memory function.
The links between healthy childhood development and omega-3’s are also stammering. Children are full of energy as it is, but when we attach that energy to some of the sugars and junk foods that kids find at every right turn – it’s no surprise that they are having problems focusing their attention in their classrooms and at home. Omega-3’s act as fundamental building blocks for cognitive development and optimal memory function. Optimizing omega-3 intake will help your child or children hone in on their daily activities and tasks while helping them fully absorb the lessons they are learning along the way.
Omega-3’s are also critical in promoting heart health. Medical practitioners argue, this is their strongest and most important function in optimizing personal health and well-being. When your heart is operating at its best, your circulatory system is able to provide your body and brain the oxygen they need to function fully.
Choosing to use omega-3 supplements on a daily basis is the simplest way to ensure you are receiving optimal omega-3 intake on a daily basis. Viva Labs Krill Oil is a powerful omega-3 supplement as each serving provides optimal concentration, purity and quality.
