Do have struggle with cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, and hormones?
As we age, our bodies go through a variety of changes.
For women over 40, these changes can include an increase in cholesterol, the development of type 2 diabetes, and changes in hormone levels.
Cholesterol is a type of fat found in the blood. It plays an important role in our body, helping build cells, produce hormones, and digest food. However, when too much cholesterol is present in the blood, it can lead to a greater risk of heart attack and stroke.
Women over 40 should have their cholesterol levels checked regularly and make lifestyle changes to help keep their levels in a healthy range.
Type 2 diabetes is a condition in which the body does not produce enough insulin or does not use insulin properly. It is most common in adults over 40 and is often linked to obesity, lack of physical activity, and poor diet.
Women over 40 should make lifestyle changes to reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes, such as eating a balanced diet and getting regular exercise.
Great news for anyone struggling with high cholesterol or blood sugar problems such as type 2 diabetes.
Announcing the release of a new product that is BIG news!
Normally we see a high beta glucan product or a high protein product, not both in a 40g serving. To achieve high beta glucans, high fibre and high protein all in one serving, we have searched the globe for very specialised organic ingredients for us to use in very precise amounts, literally making the impossible possible.
As both high fibre and high protein make people feel fuller for longer, with the protein also activating the fat burning hormone, this is a sensational product for weight management. It will be your very best friend for weight loss.
When taken with or around meals, it will slow release, making it a dream for pre-diabetics and type 2 diabetic. this has well over the serving size of beta glucans to reduce bad cholesterol, helping reduce the risk of heart disease, is phenomenal in itself.
The high fibre helps us increase dietary fibre which reduces the risk of colon cancer and other health issues.
As we begin shorter days here in the UK and say goodbye to a fantastic summer, my mind goes to stocking up on Vitamin D from other sources. My favourite is D3 K2 spray to the inside of the mouth. Let me know if you want to order and I can send you a link.
Vitamin D is an essential vitamin your body needs to function at its best. It is sometimes referred to as “the sunshine vitamin” because it is produced by the sun’s rays and our bodies absorb it through the skin.
It is also found in whole fat dairy products. Wherever you get it from, you need it for healthy bones, as well as a wide variety of other benefits.
1. Strong Bones
Our bones are made of calcium, and our bodies need an ongoing supply of calcium for overall health and bone maintenance. Vitamin D helps stimulate the calcium in our body. If your Vitamin D levels are low, your body will not be able to deposit to your bones; instead, that calcium will be deposited into your bloodstream. Without the nutrients they need, your bones will begin to weaken and you may become more prone to breaks and fractures.
2. Cardiovascular health:
Daily consumption of vitamin D may help protect you from a range of heart diseases like sudden cardiac arrest or heart failure.
3. Improved blood pressure:
Daily vitamin D supplements may help reduce high blood pressure, especially if taken when your blood pressure spikes. Talk to me about the best way to take Vitamin D.
4. Elasticity of arteries:
Healthy vitamin D levels can help maintain and improve the elasticity of your arteries, avoiding the hardening of arteries that leads to poor cardiovascular health.
5. Improved muscle function:
It is not only your bones that suffer from low vitamin D; your muscles start to weaken as well when you suffer from a vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D can help strengthen muscles, improve their performance, and increase stamina.
6. Decreased risk of Type 2 diabetes:
Some studies have indicated that individuals who consume the recommended amount of Vitamin D on a daily basis may actually have a lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes than those who did not.
7. Reduced risk of cancer:
Daily consumption of vitamin D may help reduce the risk of various cancers, such as ovarian, lung, breast, throat, colon, and prostate. Vitamin D may help reduce the rate at which cancer cells spread from one to another, possibly contributing to both the prevention and treatment of cancer.
8. Guard against viral diseases:
Vitamin D may help protect our body from viral diseases like the flu and help us recover from illnesses more quickly.
9. Reduced risk of hormone imbalance.
Vitamin D may help balance hormones and promote a healthy perimenopause and menopause journey, free of unwanted symptoms
