Reaching the big 4-0 milestone a few months ago was a bit of an overwhelming experience. It was a great chance to look back at everything I’ve accomplished in my life so far.
But it was also an opportunity to plan for the years ahead! And one of my big goals over the next year is to improve my health.
I’m a big believer that the right vitamins and supplements can help increase overall health in various ways. So, I was thrilled when Nature’s Sunshine gave me the chance to test out some of its products for myself.
Nature’s Sunshine has been providing North Americans with top-quality health products since 1972. In fact, every year, they invest millions in quality control to ensure every supplement they offer is as pure and potent as possible.
I started browsing the site and trying to decide which of the company’s many products would be the best choices for helping me on my journey to better health after 40.
After a bit of deliberation, these were the 5 Nature’s Sunshine products that I chose to help ensure good health in the coming years!
Both men and women begin to lose bone density in their mid-thirties. And at least 1 in 3 women will suffer an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime. That means maintaining bone density is a top priority for me.
Nature's Sunshine Skeletal Strength helps ensure the health of bones and minimize the risk of osteoperosis with a variety of ingredients that help to increase bone density.
Just two tablets a day provide calcium, magnesium, Vitamin C, and other essential vitamins and trace minerals that help ensure the body is absorbing calcium efficiently and the bones have all the support they need.
Lower energy is a common occurrence for many women as they get older, and I'm no exception. The unique blend of adaptogenic herbs in Nature's Sunshine Energ-V helps to increase energy and reduce mental fatigue.
The cayenne in Energ-V is traditionally used in herbal medicine to improve digestion and support circulation as well, increasing overall wellness.
As an added bonus, the blend of herbs in Energ-V helps in the function of the thyroid gland, making it a great choice for those with hypothyroidism.
As the body naturally slows with age, digestion can slow as well, decreasing the nutrients that are absorbed during a meal.
Nature's Sunshine Digestive Enzymes helps combat this with a natural blend of enzymes that help the stomach to break down protein, carbohydrates, and fats more efficiently, maximizing the nutrients used by the body.
A great choice for a variety of digestive ailments, Nature's Sunshine Digestive Enzymes is also ideal for overall improved digestion.
An essential vitamin-like substance that's found in every cell in the body, but in especially high amounts in both the liver and the heart, CoQ10 is produced naturally, but production starts to decline at 40 years of age.
Adding Nature's Sunshine CoQ10 at that point boasts numerous benefits for women, including reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, increasing heart function, and reducing menopause symptoms.
Since heart disease is the top cause of death for women, CoQ10 is one of the supplements I consider most essential, for my heart specifically and for overall health.
As we age and our metabolism starts to slow, it becomes harder to keep off extra weight. And indulging in too many simple carbohydrates can make maintaining a healthy weight even harder!
I do my best to minimize my carb-heavy meals, but when I'm in the mood to indulge, Nature's Sunshine Carbo Grabbers help minimize the absorption of those carbohydrates thanks to the natural extract of the white kidney bean.
Of course, the best choice for better health is a diet full of fruits, vegetables, and lean protein. But on a treat day, Carbo Grabbers are a great way to give your metabolism a little extra support!
