The season has come again when germs are spreading around, and it’s sure never fun to be home sick. Staying in bed all day and pumping our bodies full of pain relievers and antibiotics has almost become a mundane chore we are accustomed to having to do a few times a year. But it doesn’t have to be that way!
If you’re like many Americans, you might see healthcare as a sort of treatment, something you need to turn to when your body’s natural workings aren’t cooperating. But let’s step into the world of wellness and learn to keep your body healthy every day, not just when it comes calling for your care, by embracing a healthy lifestyle and keeping your body fueled with the right nutrients. And it doesn’t have to be difficult; like many other things in life, keeping your mind and body healthy isn’t as much about working hard as it is about working right. Let’s dive into some simple solutions that will foster a healthy immune system, keep the germs out, and keep your mind and body running smoothly this season!
A Superfood a Day Keeps the Doctor Away!
You’ve likely heard the term “superfood” used around the internet or in chit-chat, but most people don’t know what superfoods are exactly or how superfoods work.
Superfoods are a broad category of food, and there’s no exact defining line as to what makes one food “super” and another just okay. Though there is a generally accepted definition of the term, which in almost all cases refers to any type of food that provides some type of additional benefit to your health and wellbeing. Beyond, you know, just filling you up! Essentially, a type of food that can also perform some of the functions of medication, whether preventative or treatment.
Superfoods can fall into numerous categories, though among the most common are berries, leafy greens, mushrooms, and fish. Though not every berry, leaf, mushroom, or fish can be called a “superfood,” to get the distinction, the food generally needs to contain a high level of naturally occurring specific nutrients such as fiber, antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, and flavonoids.
So, how do superfoods work? Well, the body’s workings are never a simple matter, but for an easy explanation here, these are all nutrients that have been proven to increase the functionality of the immune system, which in turn helps your body fight off germs and reduce inflammation. And your immune system does far more wonders for your body than just fighting bacteria! It’s also your body’s go-to coping mechanism to keep your muscles, joints, and bones healthy. Including some really important ones, like the lungs and the heart, of course!
Because superfoods aren’t exactly a nutritional classification of food like meat or dairy, it’s fairly difficult to maintain a “superfood diet,” as you’d be dealing with so many different foods from all over the food pyramid that don’t necessarily go well together from a nutritional point of view. But what if there was a simple way to get the right dose of superfoods without having to carefully balance all the other complexities of maintaining a nearly impossible diet?
Well, let’s introduce you to F.I.T.S. Nutrition’s Green Drive Superfood, which delivers not one, not two, not three, but eight superfoods in carefully measured doses right to your doorstep! The mixture packs a number of greens (broccoli sprout, barley grass, spirulina, and green tea macha), a few mushrooms (Lion’s Mane, Turkey Tail, and Reishi Mushroom), and beetroot juice into a blend that will give you a bigger boost of nutrients than you’ll get from any typical dieting strategy.
With so many different superfoods packed into this powerful mixture, the potential benefits are really endless! The beets and greens are packed with fiber and antioxidants, which boost your immune system and digestive system’s functionalities. Your body will be able to fight off germs, heal faster, and take in nutrients more efficiently. And let’s look into the mushrooms—lesser-known superfoods that give some real power and magic to this formula!
Lion’s Mane is a common yet not very well-known mushroom packed with loads of nutrients and known to have numerous health benefits, including stimulating the growth of nervous system cells that can enhance concentration and memory recollection. Turkey Trail is another powerful fungus known to do loads of good for the immune system. Containing compounds known as polysaccharopeptides, what you’re ingesting here goes straight to the body’s system that heals bruises, swellings, and muscle pains and regulates the well-being of your body’s vital organs. And finally, Reishi has been said to be one of the best naturally occurring sources of adaptogens out there. In other words, it’s great at regulating your body’s functions, reducing stress, and stabilizing the homeostasis that your body needs to do what it needs to do.
Like all of F.I.T.S. Nutrition’s products, the Green Drive Superfood is 100% natural and contains nothing but the awesomeness of superfoods. There are no additives, fillers, or preservatives. Just the power of nature to enhance your body and keep you healthy!
Fish Oil: The Natural Oiler for Your Body
If your body is just feeling a bit too creaky or run down, perhaps it needs some oil! Fish oil, which is naturally found in a number of fish and other seafoods (superfoods, after all!), is widely known to do wonders for your joint and cardiovascular health and boost energy production. For decades, top-performing athletes have known that fish oils are effective and have made sure to keep up a high intake of these oils through diet and supplements, but more recently, the public has been getting in on the action too.
And you really should too – and if you’re like most Americans, you probably don’t get enough fish oil in your diet, as the typical American diet is rather lacking in seafood. But what if there was a simpler solution? How can we get all the essential nutrients we need without making a drastic change to our diet? Let’s introduce the most effective fish oil supplement on the market, Omega Drive!
This carefully crafted oil is based on Omega-3 fatty acid (the most important component of fish oils) from wild-caught cold-water fish. The fat from these fish is particularly rich in the essential acid since, well, cold water fish really need that fat to stay warm! By oiling your veins and blood vessels with the same powerful fats and oils that fish use to survive the freezing cold of the deep ocean, you’ll be providing your blood vessels with the right type of fat that they need to keep blood flowing, maintain a healthy blood pressure, and keep the heart beating at full strength. This is the ultimate “good fat” that you might have learned about in health class!
The powerful supplement also contains two additional nutrients from deep-sea fish: Astaxanthin and CoQ10. So in addition to the nutritional benefits of Omega-3 being a “good” fat (to put it lightly), Omega-3, you’re also getting a powerful dose of the antioxidant astaxanthin, which is known to have incredible anti-inflammatory effects and does wonders for your muscles and joints. And CoQ10 is a key component in your body’s natural energy production, which happens every millisecond within cells. We use it all day, every day, yet most of us lack enough of it in our daily intake. With this powerful supplement, you can say goodbye to that sore body in the morning and say hello to smoothly moving muscles and a body full of energy!
Supplements That Are Good for You!
It’s commonly asked whether supplements are good for you, and in our opinion, the rule of thumb you should be using is if the supplement contains something that should be a regular part of your diet. If you’re ingesting something that your body normally doesn’t use, then you’re looking at supplements more like medication. Which isn’t bad (doctors aren’t wrong, after all), but not something you should be ingesting every day!
Supplements that are always good for you should supplement what your body is ingesting, creating, and using every day. Take the fish oil supplements that we just talked about as a perfect example. Fish oils are healthy natural fats that are essential for our health; we consume them regularly (or should consume them regularly) in the seafood that we eat. If your diet already contains a lot of seafood and other natural sources of fish oil, then you probably won’t need Omega-3 supplements. But for most Americans, that’s not the case, so these supplements can do wonders!
