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

NEXT (New Zealand) - - Next & Go Healthy -

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.
