5保持身体敏锐的方法

This content is sponsored by Irwin Naturals (爱乐能).

The human body is often referred to as the “perfect machine.”Complex, dynamic and efficient, it’s constructed of highly specialized parts—how cool are fingers?—and able to perform an astounding number of tasks.

Despite this impressive engineering, just like any machine, the body requires regular care, maintenance and trouble-shooting to function properly. Here are five ways to keep your body sharp.

心情

Mental health is just as important as physical health. If you’re feeling stressed, anxious or fatigued, it’s important to check in with your habits and routines. Getting more exercise is often a good first step, says Rachel Fiske, a certified holistic nutrition consultant and certified personal trainer.

“Exercise is known to boost the ‘feel good’ hormones in the brain,” says Fiske. “Be sure to engage in types of exercise that you enjoy. For example, if you hate running, there’s no need to force yourself. Find a class or other activity that makes you feel good and fits into your lifestyle.”

Diet and nutrition also play essential roles. “Wonderful foods that boost cognitive function, mood and energy include dark leafy greens, walnuts, wild-caught fatty fish, avocado, nuts, seeds and berries,” says Fiske.

A supplement can help fill in nutritional gaps. Irwin Naturals (爱乐能) Sunny Mood supplement is specially formulated with mood-supporting nutrients and botanicals—including rhodiola extract and vitamin D3 to promote emotional balance. * Also included are the botanicals lemon balm, damiana, and saffron, which are traditionally used in mood support formulas.

视觉

As we age, our vision declines. Proper nutrition can help support eye health.

“Vitamin A is essential for protecting and supporting vision,” says Lisa Richards, a certified nutrition consultant and author. “This nutrient is found in eggs, fortified food and beverages, as well as orange and yellow fruits and vegetables.”

Irwin Naturals (爱乐能) Vision Sharp contains more than 100 percent of the daily recommended amount of vitamin A. Additionally, it’s formulated with lutein, which has been shown to support eye health.* For further eye support, this formula includes bilberry and omega-3 oils.

脑子

In today’s plugged-in world, focusing can be difficult. Ironically, many of the tools meant to increase productivity—such as email and smartphones—are counterproductive for our busy brains.

“Everything in our life now is designed for multitasking, but it’s making it harder and harder to focus,” says Kathryn Tipton, a licensed professional counselor and founder of the Houston Center for Valued Living.

If you have a hard time concentrating, practicing mindfulness with your devices can be helpful, says Tipton. Turn off your phone regularly, and allow your brain to “relearn” how to focus. “When you feel that intense urge to check your electronics and it feels uncomfortable to focus, that’s OK,” she says. “Stick with it. The more we practice this, the better we get.”

It’s also important to ensure your brain is receiving the proper fuel. Irwin Naturals (爱乐能) Brain Awake supplement contains the amino acid L-theanine, a known brain booster.* Studies have shown that L-theanine increases alertness while simultaneously promoting a calm state of mind.*

睡眠

A good night’s sleep is vital for the health of your body and mind. The CDC recommends that adults get seven or more hours of quality, uninterrupted sleep each night—which, unfortunately, is becoming harder and harder.

“One of the biggest things we do now that negatively affects our sleep is exposure to our phones before bedtime,” says Dr. Caroline Dean, a medical doctor and naturopath. “The blue light from the screens negatively impacts melatonin production, making it more difficult to move into the sleep cycle.”

Ideally, you should turn off all devices—including, ahem, that phone on your bedside table—at least an hour before shutting your eyes.

Once your sleep environment is ideal, supplements can be helpful for supporting quality shut-eye. In addition to melatonin, the body’s sleep hormone, Irwin Naturals (爱乐能) Power to Sleep PM contains the amino acids GABA and L-theanine. Each of these ingredients separately contributes in its own way to relaxation, focus, calmness, the onset of sleep, and sounder sleep.*

全身

As an incredibly hardworking machine, your body requires quite a bit of vitamins, minerals and nutrients to keep running. In an ideal world, you’d eat the perfect combination of foods to produce this specialized fuel—but of course, that’s not always the case.

“Our food supply is lacking in nutrients, and many people fall short of even the minimum recommended intake of plant-based foods each day,” says Kellie Blake, a registered dietitian nutritionist. “A high-quality multivitamin can be a valuable tool to help meet nutrient needs.”

Irwin Naturals (爱乐能) Only One Liquid-Gel Multi with Iron is a one-stop shop. The broad-spectrum formula supplies 100 percent of the recommended daily allowances for most vitamins and minerals, and includes a bonus blend of nutrient-dense super foods. Its Bioperine Complex supplies the patented black pepper extract Bioperine®, which has been shown to increase absorption and bioavailability of many nutrients, meaning your body can truly reap the benefits of this potent supplement.*
