Men’s health…

Everyone knows the importance of a healthy lifestyle. If you have a busy schedule, you may find it hard to make time for regular exercise or find yourself eating a lot of takeout and junk food. But you can’t afford to be passive about your health.

Diet, exercise, sleep and stress management all count towards optimising men’s health at any age. Here are some key tips which could help towards men’s overall health and wellbeing.

Stay fit

There are some basic but very important things men should do regularly to stay in good health. Start exercising! Men (and all adults) need at least two-and-a-half hours a week of moderate – intensive aerobic activity, like a brisk walk. Plus, strength training at least twice a week, that helps work all major muscle groups.

Eat right

Consuming a healthy diet and maintaining a healthy weight are important in reducing the risk of heart disease, diabetes and other significant health issues. Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men worldwide. Experts recommend eating a balanced diet, which is high in fruit and vegetables and low in red and processed meat, fat and salt.

A UK study1 suggested that a high intake of plant foods, particularly tomato products, may benefit men’s health. Tomatoes are well known for containing lycopene, which is an antioxidant compound that gives tomatoes and certain other fruits their colour. Lycopene2 is an antioxidant that also protects our body cells from oxidants that have been linked to cancer. Two capsules of Nikken’s Kasai® for Men provide 6mg of high- quality lycopene, together with powdered garlic and pumpkin seed; this variety of Kasai® is designed to help contribute to men’s overall wellbeing.

Stick to a sleep schedule

Good “sleep hygiene” (things that promote regular, sound sleep) can help men lead healthier happier lives.

Look after your skin

Given today’s busy lifestyle, adequate skin care is just as important for men as for women. Environmental factors, as well as constant shaving, makes men’s skin sensitive and prone to skin conditions such as acne, dehydrated skin, dullness and shaving ingrowths. Nikken’s TRUE elements® Marine Organic skincare offers all the products necessary for a good skincare regime. Not just for women, but for men too! The TRUE elements® Youth Active Serum contains Ulva algae which helps natural cellular renewal plus hyaluronic acid, known to helpstimulate collagen synthesis which may help improve skins overall appearance.

Nutrition in the modern world

Nutrition blog heading

Good nutrition is a cornerstone of good health. However, in our fast-paced society, it can sometimes be difficult to eat wholesome, well-balanced food with a variety of ingredients. Instead, convenience sometimes dominates our eating habits. Especially, when feeding a family with different schedules and meal preferences!

In an ideal world, some people would argue that the best nutritional solution for optimal health is to eat three home cooked organic meals a day. There are always new guidelines issued but most of us are familiar with the idea of trying to incorporating at least five but ideally more portions of fruit and vegetables a day into our diet. However, it is not always as easy as it sounds, many people struggle to achieve this along side all the other daily priorities and responsibilities.

Therefore, sometimes it can be beneficial to look at including supplements. Nikken offers a range of nutritional supplements based on concentrated whole foods that may help to provide the essential nutritional support our bodies’ need while still fitting into the modern world.

A good place to start is with Kasai® Multi-Vitamins and Minerals. This product contains a broad array of wholefood fruit and vegetable powders – pineapple, orange, apple, apricot, cherry, peach, strawberry, papaya, grape, grapefruit, blueberry, raspberry, blackcurrant, blackberry, broccoli, carrot, and onion.

Kasai® provides a supportive range of vitamins and minerals and it also provides the associated phytonutrients and nutritional matrices to help address your daily nutritional needs.

The Kasai® range offers targeted supplements to help support your bodies wellbeing needs, with the exception of Kasai® Omega Oils all the Kasai® range are suitable for vegetarians.
