“Striving to improve or maintain physical wellness is an integral part of living. Nikken’s focus is nutrition, exercise, restful sleep and freedom from discomfort, and its products are based on addressing these issues of everyday modern living.”
Over the forthcoming months we’re going to be writing 5 additional monthly blogs based on each area of Nikken’s 5 Pillars of Health philosophy. Today we’ll be starting with Healthy Body.
Your physical wellbeing is important so; Are you maintaining a healthy body? We’ve outlined a checklist of areas to take note of when looking at your personal fitness and wellbeing.
Nutrition and Eating Well
Are you feeling low, tired or stressed? If so, you could be running low on vital nutrients. A balanced diet helps, but alone these can be inadequate in providing your body with the level of nutrients that it really needs. Nikken’s products can provide that extra boost, in addition to a wholesome diet.
Kasai® Multi-Vitamin and Mineral for example, offers a wealth of essential minerals and vitamins – all in one tub!
A lack of Vitamin D can lead to back, leg and hip pain and, according to a recent survey, more than half of the adult population have insufficient levels of this Vitamin (Daily Mail Research, 2011).
Vitamin D is important for a healthy immune system as well as bone growth and the absorption of calcium – that is where OstoDenx® and CalDenx™ come in. Together, these food supplements are a force to be reckoned with when it comes to healthy bones and teeth!
Also, if you’re feeling a little irritable, your magnesium levels could be low. This deficiency can lead to feelings of anxiety and worry. Magnesium helps to maintain those healthy bones and gives us a boost of energy from our food. Try CalDenx™ with a diet that includes spinach, almonds and wholemeal bread; these are great sources of magnesium.
Our bodies are complex and need taking care of. Therefore there are many things to consider when thinking about our nutrition and it may not be necessary to take everything, but just to give certain problem areas a boost with nutritional supplements, in addition to a balanced and healthy diet.
Be good to your body and it’ll be good to you!
Exercising and Keeping Fit
We all know that it can be difficult to include more physical activity into our busy lives and sometimes we see it as a chore. However, with the right exercise plan, mental attitude and supportive fitness products, keeping fit doesn’t have to be taxing.
Every little bit of exercise counts; whether it be a quicker stroll or a day out cycling with the family, you’re helping your personal fitness, having fun and enjoying quality time with loved ones at the same time! Anything that gets your heart beat racing is benefiting your fitness levels.
In addition to exercising buddies, it is also important to find the perfect exercising equipment to motivate and support you. Having the right trainers that are kind to your feet and help keep them well ventilated will create stress-free exercise. Wouldn’t it be great if you could burn up to 20% more energy with every step you take by lining your trainers with CardioStrides®?
Sleeping and Relaxing
Are you someone who likes to ensure they have enough sleep every night? If so, you are someone who is making a great choice for a healthy lifestyle. Sleep is a vital part of this and it’s just as important as exercising and eating the right foods. Sleep helps us function properly and if we don’t get enough sleep, it will have adverse effects on the body.
Nikken has a variety of solutions, designed to help you de-stress, re-charge and escape the daily pressures of life. The Naturest Sleep Solution is a dream combination of products which have helped many people to improve their night’s sleep. You’ll wake up feeling refreshed, alert and ready to face the day ahead.
Winding down and relaxing at the end of the day will help you sleep better too. A back massage is an ideal way to lose any tension in your muscles; the stimulating MagCreator® will help you do just that and help you get off to sleep…Zzzz!
Re-energising and Rejuvenating
Do you suffer with achy bones and strained joints? Maybe magnetic technology may be something you might want to consider. It is often used to relieve joint pains, aches and strains and the use of this for health goes back centuries.
Magnetic and far-infrared technology can be found in many of our products. It may sound very scientific (which it is) but our jewellery products are a great option, creating an elegant look in addition to gaining the real health benefits of this technology.
There’s nothing more energising and refreshing as clean purified water and fresh air. These can make us feel alert, awake and full of energy. We should be drinking up to 8 glasses of water a day to avoid dehydration which makes us feel slow, headachy and tired. How much water have you had today?
Eat well, keep active, relax and re-energise for total wellness.
