There is a lot of truth in the old saying 'you are what you eat'. Just think about how lousy you can feel, mentally and physically, after eating just one unhealthy meal! If you continue to eat poorly this can really leave you feeling tired and unhealthy. Multiple days of eating refined, processed, fast foods can have a significant impact on energy levels. This month we want to take a look at how what you eat affects your health and energy levels. We will also look at the importance of digestion and detoxification for maintaining your health and energy.
Diet, digestion and detoxification are 'The 3-D's of Good Health and Energy'. If any of these three key contributors to health are not in tip-top condition it can reduce your energy and stop you feeling healthy and vital.
Food is your body's fuel - it gives you the energy and essential nutrients to function properly. You wouldn't consider putting the wrong fuel into your car as it would cause short-term issues with performance and could lead to long-term engine problems. Your body and your car are not that different: the better the quality of the food in your daily diet, the better your body will perform. To keep your body healthy and in good condition you should always aim to eat a wide variety of foods including lots of vegetables, fruit, nuts, healthy protein and good fats.
Good digestion is important to ensure you break your food down and absorb all the nutrients from your food. If you don't break your food down properly you may not absorb all the vitamins and minerals you need to keep you healthy and energetic. Do you occasionally suffer from indigestion or feel heavy and bloated immediately after eating? If you do, you might need some help keeping your digestive system functioning properly. Ethical Nutrients Digestion Plus is a natural supplement that can help support normal, healthy digestion; it is an easy, simple way to help you get the best nutrition from the food you eat.
Good digestive function is also important to ensure removal of waste material from the bowel. Waste elimination from the digestive system gets rid of potentially dangerous toxins from your body. Poor waste removal may cause bloating, bacterial overgrowth and gut inflammation, leaving you feeling tired and sick. A poor diet, inadequate fibre intake, not drinking enough water and even stress can all lead to upset digestion and poor waste removal. To improve your bowel health, address these factors and take a probiotic (good bacteria) supplement like Inner Health, Inner Health Plus or IBS Support to help maintain your digestive health. Talk to your local Pharmacy or health food shop assistant about which probiotic supplement is best suited to your digestive needs.
The final "D" of Good Health and Energy is detoxification. Detoxification basically means removal of toxins from the body. A 'toxin' is another name for a poison which has the potential to interfere with the processes that keep us healthy. Normally, our natural, internal detoxification processes remove these toxins from the body and therefore keep us healthy and energetic.
Detoxification primarily occurs in the digestive tract and the liver. If your detoxification processes are sluggish the result is an increase in the circulation of toxins throughout the body. This can lead to many short and long-term health problems. Luckily there are things you can do to help your body deal with these toxins more effectively. Improving your detoxification pathways using Ethical Nutrients Liver & Detox Support formula can help you feel more energetic and healthier.
To help you address all '3 D's of Good Health and Energy,' Ethical Nutrients has designed an 'Energy through Detoxification' program that addresses all of these needs in an easy, liveable and individualised way. To help you decide whether you need the Ethical Nutrients 'Energy through Detoxification' program simply complete the attached Health and Energy Questionnaire and take this into your local Pharmacy or health food store. Your results may indicate that your body could benefit from a 'tune-up', and that the Ethical Nutrients 'Energy through Detoxification' program could be just what you need to improve your health and vitality.
The Ethical Nutrients 'Energy through Detoxification' program gives you a meal plan to follow and recipes to help you improve your diet. If you are interested in the program discuss it with your local Pharmacy or health food store assistant; they can recommend supplements to suit your needs, which may include Ethical Nutrients Digestion Plus, Inner Health, Inner Health Plus or IBS Support to assist in rebalancing your digestive system and/or Ethical Nutrients Liver & Detox Support to aid detoxification
