Tips to Improve Women's Health
Families, communities, and economies benefit when women are healthier.
Women’s health is an integral part of a healthy society! That's why we want to show you how easy it is to have an ongoing commitment towards improving women's health with simple healthy habits and through education, awareness, and advocacy we can all help.
Women's Health positively affects the overall health of the population. However, they are affected more than men with many chronic diseases and conditions, some of them by choice and others imposed by biological factors such as pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, stroke, osteoporosis, and let's not forget, mental health like anxiety, depression and eating disorders. Women are also likely to have heart disease, obesity and hormonal issues.
It is important that women understand their bodies and their needs and are aware of the risks associated with poor health as there are ways to promote women's health and reduce the risk of developing these conditions and learn how to manage others. We have put together seven simple tips to help improve overall women's health.
How do we love the B-complex vitamins? Let us count the ways: they support energy production, carbohydrate metabolism, nerve system function, stress management, healthy adrenal gland function, red blood cell production and cardiovascular health, plus memory, mood and cognitive function. Taking B complex vitamins in activated form as we get older, ensures we are taking them in a form that our bodies can readily use.
2. Sleep well
We all know that a good night's sleep is essential for a healthy life. But did you know that getting enough restful sleep can benefit your mind and body in many ways? When we sleep, our brain processes information and consolidates memories, allowing us to remember facts and skills better. It also repairs and restores the body, which helps heal and keeps us energised. Ensuring you get enough restful sleep is key to maintain optimal health and wellbeing!
3. Eat a rainbow
Eating healthy is vital for women's health. Eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can help reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases. It is also essential to limit the amount of saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol in your diet.
4. Drink lots of water
Water is essential for the human body to function properly; it helps the body to flush out toxins, keeps joints and muscles lubricated, and helps transport nutrients and oxygen around the body. Not only does drinking water have physical benefits, but it also has mental health benefits too. Water also helps to increase energy levels; even mild dehydration can make us feel tired and sluggish. Additionally, drinking water can improve our skin's appearance; when we are well-hydrated, our skin looks healthier and more radiant.
5. Love your shape
Women typically put on weight as they get older because their basal metabolic rate (BMR)–the quantity of kilojoules burned in a day simply through normal activity–drops as muscle mass softens into fat. To counter this, follow an aerobic exercise routine of leg, arm and core work to burn more kilojoules, and do strength training to keep your muscle-to-fat ratio up. Taking a natural plant based protein powder like Proganics Organic Protein meal replacement, will help keep your hunger satisfied, reduce cravings and support a healthy metabolism.
6. Screenings & Check-ups
Regular screenings and check-ups can help detect conditions early when they are most treatable. Women's health providers should give tailored advice to meet individual needs and preferences and recommend lifestyle changes that can help improve overall health.
7. Green Is Golden
Made from alfalfa concentrate, naturally alkalising plant-based chlorophyll, is a very effective detoxification tool, internal cleanser and skin tonic. Try adding a shot of NutriVital Chlorophyll to a glass of water or add it to your morning smoothie–add pineapple, celery, mint and a dash of jalapeno sauce to really get things moving. Interestingly, chlorophyll helps promote the health of your immune system too.
