ONE DAY AT A TIME
When it comes to overall health and wellbeing, it’s the choices you make every day that make the biggest difference
When it comes to health, wellbeing and fitness, you can’t move for buzzwords and superfoods these days. Trends you first noticed on your Instagram account have slowly become a reality and now they’re popping up at your local café or supermarket. But all this new information isn’t necessarily making the whole world of wellness any easier, is it? In fact, it seems to be getting more and more convoluted. So… what do you do? The answer, like most of the big answers in life, is both simple and boring. The answer is consistency. It’s the bland phrase that’s so familiar it’s probably on a bumper sticker on the car next to you at the gym. What you do every day is more important than what you do sometimes. Building easy, everyday habits will make the biggest difference to your overall health – not a juice fast or a crazy exercise routine you do for only six weeks a year. If you had a dollar for every time you’d been told to drink more water, eat more greens and go for more walks, you’d be rolling in it, right? But the reason those things keep being repeated over and over again is because they’re true. Dull, but true.
The issue with looking at drastic quick fixes
to overhaul your health is that when they’re over, you go back to your normal way of living and any benefits you may have gained along the way quickly fall by the wayside. If we look at our healthy choices as less of a diet, or a new activity, and more like our normal way of life, we’re less likely to throw them away when things get difficult.
Life is busy and time is scarce, so when you make healthy choices, they have to work with you – not against you. Anything that makes you hungry, mad or stressed, isn’t a good idea. (If you’ve ever had lunch with someone who’s on a juice cleanse, you’ll know this too well!) Every single day of your life you have to eat, drink and get from A to B. So if you can start making healthy choices most of the time with these things you already have to do, the rest will take care of itself.
Supporting your active lifestyle with a quality range of supplements can help complement these healthy choices you’re already making, without adding to your to-do list.
Building on the success of their original turmeric product, GO Healthy have released five variations that are individually tailored to different health focuses. Turmeric is a fantastic superfood that can aid overall wellbeing by supporting various processes in the body, like digestion, joint health and muscle support. So no matter what your health concern, there’s a way to incorporate this fantastic and natural ingredient into your daily diet.
If you’re just after general health and wellbeing, pick GO Turmeric 30,000+ 1-A-Day. It contains a high strength amount of turmeric, as well as black pepper – to help with absorption – and ginger, which also helps ease digestion.
Joint support your main focus? Then choose either GO Turmeric & Glucosamine 1-A-Day, which combines high strength turmeric and 1,500mg Glucosamine, or GO Turmeric for Joints 1-A-Day, which has added herbs for joint mobility to the mix, as well as Boswellia AKBA for fast results.
We’re slowly starting to understand just how crucial gut health is to our overall wellbeing, which is why GO Turmeric Digestion Eze 1-A-Day is perfect if you’re looking to keep your digestion on an even keel. As well as turmeric – which already has great properties for aiding digestion – this product includes aloe vera, chamomile, peppermint and ginger, which all help support and soothe digestion.
And finally, if you’re someone leading a very active lifestyle who is looking for a product to help support muscle recovery, there’s GO Turmeric Sport Active, which includes both magnesium and Co-Q10. Magnesium is great for relaxing muscles – if you’re someone who gets a lot of muscle twitches or spasms, that can be a sign of a deficiency, and Co-Q10 is really good for helping to support the energy process in the body.
All of these supplements are packed with natural ingredients that help support key body processes to aid overall wellbeing. Turmeric has become a serious buzzword in the last few years as we’ve seen a rise in things like turmeric tonics and lattes, but it’s an ingredient that has been used by many cultures around the world for centuries (always a good sign). It’s a root vegetable like ginger, but with a far brighter orange colour, thanks to the antioxidant compound curcumin, which is what gives it both its distinctive colour and its health-giving properties. It’s also a very easy, healthy choice to fit into your healthy lifestyle – and we know that daily, easy health choices are what make the biggest overall difference.
