This month of November we are highlighting different health topics and why we are thankful we know how to keep ourselves healthy.
We will be concentrating on Diabetes Awareness, Heart Health, Brain health, and Skin Health.
November is Diabetes Awareness Month
With the increase in Diabetes in the American population, we appreciate and depend on the knowledge and education that is available. While we should not be discouraged from living a healthy, happy life, it is important to monitor your sugar levels and eat wholesome, nutritious meals. There are a variety of supplements that are made for diabetes to help maintain healthy glucose and insulin levels, but our most recommended and preferred by patients is called Ultra Glucose Control. UGC is a quick and easy meal replacement shake for those who are always on the go, keeping you full and cutting out your sugar cravings.
Thankful for Heart Health
To be thankful for our heart health means we must understand what steps we need to take to protect it. Avoiding over processed foods, regularly exercising, and supplementing your diet with essential nutrients is key to keeping your heart strong. Studies show a strong correlation between the use of Fish Oil Supplements (Omega 3), along with healthy lifestyle adjustments, in maintaining a healthy heart. Additionally, healthy Omegas have shown to control triglyceride and cholesterol levels in patients. Start taking better care of your heart now by letting us show you our selection of Pharmaceutical grade Fish Oils.
Thankful for Brain Health
Everything starts in the brain, so let’s be thankful for keeping the brain healthy! Ginkgo Biloba is a tree, in which the leaves and seeds have been used for years as an herbal supplement to help with many health issues. This supplement, Ginkgo Biloba, has been shown to improve cognitive function, social behavior and the ability to perform everyday tasks. If you are wondering if Ginkgo Biloba is a good fit for you, be sure to talk to one of our pharmacists for more information before starting this supplement.
Thankful for Skin Health
Skin is the body’s largest organ and protects us from harmful agents entering our body. With the increasing number of people diagnosed with skin cancer, it is more important now than ever to understand how to take care of our skin and protect it. Years ago, there was very little information on how important it is to wear a strong SPF and unfortunately many suffered with severe sun damage and ultimately resulted in skin cancers. We now understand the importance of wearing a quality sunscreen, but we must understand HOW to find one that is a good fit. A top recommended and selling product at Pharmacy Solutions, and one with proven results, is EltaMd Sunscreen. It is made with Zinc Oxide which deflects the sun rays instead of absorbing them. EltaMd offers a variety of options, including sunscreen for those who are acne prone, have sensitive skin, dry skin, or active (sweat resistant); there is an option for just about everyone! We love that it is not streaky, nor does it leave any white residue. Stop by Pharmacy Solutions to try some samples and find your perfect fit and start protecting your skin today!
