Essentials of Healthy Living: A Guide to Better Health

Have you checked out Essentials of Healthy Living (EHL)? It is a system that allows you to personalize your supplement and healthy living regimen based on your age, gender and any health concerns you may have.

Whether you are a 20-year-old woman who is suffering from premenstrual syndrome or a 65-year-old man with concerns about your cardiovascular health, EHL can help you choose supplements that will support your health concerns.

Core Nutrition is the foundation of the whole program. It consists of five nutritional supplements: MultiVitamin/Mineral, Essential Fatty Acids, Antioxidants, Probiotics, and Bone Nutrients: building blocks of basic good health. Stress, poor food choices, and illness deplete these core nutrient reserves. It is necessary to replenish these essential nutrients daily.

EHL then offers further suggestions based on age and gender, as well as your health concerns. Rounding out the program are lifestyle and diet recommendations.

This valuable resource is available online and in our store. If you require more in-depth information, schedule a consult with a health professional.
