2020 is finally over! It was a complex year for many of us as we adjusted to new lifestyles, limited our exposure to others, paid more attention to our health, and dealt with lots of stressors.
2021 is an opportunity for a better year – and a better you. The start of a new year is a great opportunity to set intentions and decide what to focus on in the new year. Don’t think of it as a resolution as much as commitment to health and wellness in 2021!
To help you start fresh in 2021, here’s a comprehensive list of supplements that can help with better sleep, better intimacy, better immune health, and much more.
In 2021, focus on getting your sleep cycle back on schedule.
Sleep is an important aspect of overall wellness. The body repairs itself through restful sleep, and repeated lack of sleep can cause issues like lowered immunity, slowed metabolism, and more. Chronic sleeplessness can also put you at a higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other issues.
Here are some supplements for improved sleep:
REM Maintenance Sleep Powder – REM Maintenance Sleep Powder is a combination of nutrients that help support healthy, natural sleep. Ingredients include glycine, magnesium, inositol, 5-HTP, and melatonin, which are all proven sleep aids. See REM powder in store.
Melatonin Troches – Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone that sets the brain’s internal clock and generates circadian rhythms. It is a crucial part of a healthy sleep cycle. These Melatonin troches can be placed under the tongue until they dissolve – leading to faster onset of positive effects. See Melatonin Troches in store.
Just like last year, we expect health and wellness to be a big focus in 2021. We are so proud of our patients who committed to their health in 2020, and we’re here to support you as you do the same this year.
Here are some supplements that can boost your immune system and support your health in 2021:
Vitamin D3 – Ongoing studies have identified Vitamin D deficiency as a potential factor in more severe cases of COVID-19.Vitamin D3, also called Cholecalciferol, supports the immune system and helps control blood sugar and blood pressure. It acts as an anti-inflammatory and can help manage weight gain, as well. See Vitamin D3 in store now.
Vitamin C – Vitamin C is important to overall immune health. Studies show that regular supplementation of Vitamin C can help the body fight against viral and bacterial infections. See Vitamin C in store now.
Zinc – Zinc is an important mineral that supports the immune system and the metabolism. It also contributes to the development of proteins and DNA and aids in wound healing. We provide access to zinc in three forms: injectable, lozenge, and capsule (combined with other important vitamins and minerals).
If you’re committing to healthier habits this year, you’re not alone. Exercising more and eating healthier earned the top spots for resolutions in 2021, according to Statista’s annual survey.
