5 Steps to Better Women’s Health

In life, do you know what’s the one thing you can always bet on?

– Losing something

 In your youth,  you’re faced with an assortment of challenges, obstacles, or dilemmas; each one aiding in your growth as an adult. As time continued, you gained friends, knowledge, skills, wisdom, and memories. Additionally, with each passing year, you turn one year older. It’s said the older you are the wiser you become, you’re an expert in your career field, and your memories are limitless. But, you also lose things the older you get. Friendships, for whatever reasons are lost. Hair thins out and falls. Our ability to perform certain activities you truly enjoyed are a distant memory. Likewise, on the ocassion some of us lose our health – which can lead to losing your zeal for life.

Living is more than just existing. You and I have a purpose in life; however purposeful is up to you to discover.

Living a purpose driven life for me is:

Living life happily
Living life to the fullest
Living life healthy.

In one perspective, it’s a perfect marriage. On the other hand, if you lose your health, you’re bound to lose the other two.

What’s more important than your health?

Absolutely Nothing. Not your business, not your boss, not your children. When you lose your health EVERONE suffers.

Since we’re in the Pink Ribbon month, today’s piece will focus on 5 Steps to Better Women’s Health.

Women are blessed angels here on earth. As ambassadors of multi-tasking, women tend to be left with a “to do” list that involves only herself while caring for everyone else. Though women are notorious multi-taskers who function best with a list in their hand, mama must take care of herself to be able to better care for others. And if mama’s happy, everyone’s happy! 🙂

With that being said, treat yourself to the gift of better health by following this simple five-step checklist.

1 Boost breast health.

One of every eight adult women will get breast cancer in her lifetime. Nutrition plays an important role in breast health.
 
Best ways to lower your risk of breast cancer include:

• staying physically active by getting regular exercise.

• Maintain a healthy weight.

• Avoid using hormone replacement therapy (HRT), or find out the risks and benefits of HRT and if it is right for you.

• Limit the amount of alcohol that you drink.
 
Likewise, make sure you’re topping off your day with enough Vitamin D. In a Nurses’ Health Study, women who had higher blood levels of vitamin D had a 30 percent reduced breast cancer risk. Further studies suggest regular, moderate consumption of soy foods lowers the incidence of breast cancer. Target range is at least 11 grams of soy per day. Reliv’s Now and Classic includes 7 grams of soy protein, in addition to, optimal blend of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and herbs.

In an effort to enhance your immune system, antioxidants as in selenium and beta carotene promotes breast health, as well. So the combination of a well-rounded diet generous in fruits and vegetables and your daily Reliv shakes is a great start towards healthier breast.

2. Strengthen you bones.

Calcium and Vitamin D are needed for strong bones, but other nutrients can play an influential role also. Research show the isoflavones found in soy foods may prevent osteoporosis. In like manner, studies show the polyphenols in green tea help build bone strength. Reliv’s SoySentials, women’s health formula, presents these nutrients together in a synergistic combination for maximum benefits.

3. Lose Weight

Control your weight and exercise. Yet, in today’s fast paced society who has the time to calculate points, calories, carbs or grams?

This delicious, meal-replacement shake rich in satisfying soy protein and Accelerator Capsules incorporates advanced ingredients to curb your appetite and boost your meta-bolism. Moreoever, this simple system includes a pedometer, exercise and food journal, meal plans and ongoing support to help you achieve your weight loss goal the safe and effective way.

4. Manage PMS and Menopausal Symptoms

What kind of women are you when “it’s that time of the month”? If your PMS sends you into an Incredible Hulk mode, bump up your vitamin B consumption, more so thiamin and riboflavin. Research suggests B vitamins can reduce PMS symptoms by 35 percent. Furthermore, diets rich in calcium and vitamin D can aid symptoms while lowering the risk of developing the dreaded PMS. So, work more soy, specifically isoflavones found in soy, reducing the consistency of bothersome hot flashes due to menopause. Reliv’s SoySentials contains a unique blend of soy protein (10 grams per serving), potent antioxidants, probiotics and herbs to ease the symptoms of PMS and menopause. Together, the balance ingredients work to promote bone health, support the immune system, and keep your body performing at its peak.

5 Find More Energy

For those of you who experience the tired, run down feeling, incorporate some kind of exercise daily. Excercise actually boots energy levels to get more accomplished in your day. As you are aware, exercise also promotes weight loss and benefits yours bones, breast and heart. Did you know, maintaing an active lifestyle also helps reduce energy-sucking stress?
