The last few months have been a lot busier for many of us. While it’s great to see things reopening, some people might notice life becoming a bit overwhelming.
Take action today to bring a greater sense of balance to all the areas of your life …
These days everyone is really busy. (Just how many times in the last week have you heard someone say that?). You have so many obligations. Responsibilities to partner, family, work, children, parents. All these are competing for your valuable attention. You feel frazzled, your brain addled, memory affected, it sometimes seems just all too much.
The result is exhaustion, stress, and cognitive overload. You want to be firing on all cylinders, but the more you have on your plate, the less on top of things you feel.
Just as there is no magic pill to ensure our brains stay as sharp as ever, there are steps we can take to support cognitive function and protect from oxidative stress. We know that nutritionists recommend we give our body and brains the best chance by following a healthy diet that includes lots of fruits, vegetables and wholegrains, protein from plant sources, and fish. Of course, choosing healthy fats – olive oil, for example – over saturated fats is a must. But is there more we can do?
In addition to a balanced diet, you could consider taking a supplement. One Nutrition’s latest product, Ashwagandha, is designed to support healthy nutrition and a healthy lifestyle and plays a supporting role in keeping the brain healthy. The root extract of a dark green shrub called ashwagandha, which grows in Africa and Asia, is combined with magnesium and zinc to provide support for cognitive function, normal psychological function, and to contribute to the reduction of oxidative stress.*
Magnesium plays many crucial roles in the body, such as the normal functioning of the nervous system, the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, supporting nerve function and energy production. Many women don’t get enough magnesium in their diets because they don’t eat sufficient amounts of nuts, wholegrains and leafy vegetables. One Nutrition Ashwagandha also supports normal psychological function. Zinc is also vital for women. Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal cognitive function, normal testosterone levels in the blood, normal fertility and reproduction and the normal function of the immune system. The latter is particularly important as we head into the darker winter months.
So if supporting our cognitive function and protecting ourselves from oxidative stress can be as simple as taking two capsules daily of One Nutrition Ashwagandha, that’s one positive step in the right direction of achieving the balance we need. It’s a no-brainer!
