Here are some favorite tips of ours to kick start a health and wellness routine!
Ginger up –
The benefits of ginger are endless. Including ginger in your diet is a wonderful way to promote wellness throughout your body by helping to promote proper digestion and balance the immune system response. Ginger is also well known for its ability to support healthy cardiovascular function and aid in soothing motion induced nausea.
ORGANIC INDIA Ginger Capsules and Ginger Powder are simple ways to reap the benefits of this powerful spice. Try taking two capsules, twice daily with food and water. You can also add a spoonful of ginger powder to your favorite tea, juice, or smoothie. For recipe ideas and inspiration, click here.
Start Sipping –
Are you getting enough water on a daily basis? Do you find yourself dragging during the day and suffer from random headaches? It could very well be that you are experiencing dehydration. Drinking water is one of the easiest things we can do to promote wellness in our bodies. Not only does it help to give us a natural lift of energy, it can reduce food cravings which aids in helping us maintain a healthy weight.
How much water should you drink on a daily basis? Take your body weight and divide it by two. The number you get is the total amount (in ounces) of water you need to drink in order to thrive in 2017. Add a dash of lemon juice to your bottle for some extra flavor and a boost of nutrients!
Make it a Moringa Morning –
Native to Africa and India, Moringa is a nutritionally complex superfood rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Believe it or not, moringa is considered one of the most complete, nutrient-dense plants on the planet! For thousands of years it has been used as a way to combat malnutrition while the leaves are eaten as a staple in various culture’s diets.
Daily use of Moringa is a wonderful way to boost your body with the nutrients needed to help you look and feel your best. Adding this superfood to your diet is easy. Choose from Moringa Leaf Powder, Moringa Lift-on-the-go Packets, and Moringa Capsules. Looking for an on-the-go moringa packed snack? Check out these Moringa Snack Balls!
Feel Fabulous with Fiber –
It’s no secret that fiber is an essential part of a balanced diet. We need fiber in order to promote healthy digestion and regular elimination. The trouble is we often get so busy with our daily activities that we forget to eat foods rich in fiber, and fill up on empty calories instead.
If you are wanting to focus on a fiber-filled 2018, you may want to try psyllium! ORGANIC INDIA Whole Husk Psyllium is the seed husk of the herb, Plantago ovata, and is a natural way to incorporate safe, bulk-forming dietary fiber into your diet. Not only does it help to promote healthy elimination and regularity, it offers support to the entire gastrointestinal system.
Including psyllium in your diet each day is an easy way to ensure you are getting all that you need in order to maintain your health. Be sure to drink an extra glass of water.
Pamper Yourself –
Is there anything better than coming home from a long day to soak in a warm bath? In 2018, make time out of your busy schedule to pamper yourself. Warm baths promote relaxation, help to improve blood circulation, promote detoxification, and promote a peaceful night of rest.
If you feel achy and tired, add a scoop of Epsom salts to the mix! Even better, receive the benefits of aromatherapy by adding a few drops of essential oils to the water. Make sure you dilute the essential oils in a carrier oil first (do not put directly in bath as this can cause burns)!
Whatever you do, make sure that self care is on the resolution list this year.
Get Moving –
One of the most common new year resolution is to get out there and exercise! Unfortunately, the majority of those newly purchased gym memberships fall to the wayside halfway through the year. When it comes to working out, it is important to pick an exercise that is fun to you personally. Whether it be dancing, walking the dogs, or swimming at the local pool, find some kind of physical activity that you can look forward to, not something you dread. Exercise can and should be rewarding!
Time for Triphala –
One of the oldest and most renowned herbal formulas from Vedic tradition, Triphala is a gentle and nourishing blend of three organic fruits. These fruits include Amla (also known as Amalaki), Belleric Myrobalan (also known as Bibhitaki) and Chebulic Myrobalan (also known as Haritaki). These three fruits work together to cleanse and support your entire GI tract while improving digestion, elimination, and the assimilation of nutrients.
Triphala is also an amazing source of vitamin C which can help to keep your skin glowing throughout the new year. ORGANIC INDIA Triphala is made only of the fruit pulp without any seeds. It’s also made with Certified Organic Herbs and is Kosher/Halal Certified.
