The days are getting warmer, and we’re looking forward to another season of health with the help of NOW®! Try these natural ways to stay healthy this summer, and get a jumpstart on your health this season.
Now, I know we’ve all heard our fair share about getting in shape for summer. But this isn’t your typical “get your beach body” post. We want to share with you our favorite natural ways to stay healthy! No quick fixes or slimdowns, just real, organic and natural ways to feel confident.
Of course, we all want to look good for swimsuit season. That’s the great thing about these products- not only will they help boost your health from the inside, they’ll help you look good on the outside as part of a balanced routine! All of the NOW products listed here will help your body function at its best and give you the nutrients you need. It doesn’t get much better than that… Actually, it does- you could be the winner of all the products mentioned in this post! Check out the giveaway down below.
Eat the Good Fat
That good fat – you know it has some amazing benefits for your body. Omega-3s and Omega-6s and all the omegas- they ensure that your body functions smoothly, especially your neural, cardiovascular and cellular systems.* These healthy fats help to promote healthy cellular function and help your body function at its best. While we can consume these omegas and essential fatty acids through our diet (we’re loving NOW’s Triple Omega Seed Mix), it’s also important to supplement our daily routine to ensure we’re getting enough. We suggest trying NOW’s Flax Seed Oil in salad dressings, sauces, peanut butter, yogurt and protein shakes, and even taking the Super Omega 3-6-9 daily for a great blend of these nutritional oils in supplement form.
Amino Acids Are Your Friends
Protein is the building block of muscles, and amino acids are the building blocks of protein, so…. you get the idea. By taking amino acids, you can help facilitate the body’s normal process of muscle repair and promote lean muscle growth – helping you achieve that toned and athletic physique!* The NOW® Sports line of amino acids is the highest quality possible, and only uses amino acids in their natural state.! I’d go with the Amino-9 Essentials™ Powder which easily mixes in juice or other favorite beverage.
Curb Your Sweet Tooth
Sugar, you vixen. We know it’s not good for us, yet we can’t seem to keep ourselves away. Excess sugar in the body is potentially stored as fat– and we do not need that happening. Of course, saying goodbye to sweets entirely doesn’t sound ideal. Thankfully, NOW provides many solutions for more natural sugar alternatives, from BetterStevia® to Coconut Sugar to Sugarless Sugar, a one-to-one natural sugar substitute made with Monk Fruit, now available in convenient packets. Believe me, you won’t ever go back to table sugar after trying these. As the weather heats up, indulge in this amazing Acai Ginger Arnold Palmer.
In addition to tasting like the best summer drink you’ll ever have, this Arnold Palmer recipe is made with Acai Lemonade Slender Sticks. These low-calorie, sugar-free drink mix packets are made with BetterStevia® and contain half of your daily vitamin intake, are non-GMO, and contain 10 super fruits. All in one little packet. Take them anywhere and mix in a water bottle for a between-meals pick me up!
