While these tips are simple and easy to follow, the key is to make them a part of your daily regimen.
1. Drink more often
Water, that is! One of the quickest ways to feel a boost in your energy levels and to notice a difference in your skin health is to increase your water intake to two to two-and-a-half litres of water per day. A boost in hydration will also help ease joint pain and aid in digestion. If you want to take your health up another notch, try squeezing fresh lemon wedges into your water daily, whether it’s hot or cold.
2. Take vitamin supplements wisely
While I am an advocate of getting the majority of your nutrition from food, I am also aware this is not always easy to do, due to a hectic pace of life, stress or travel. When it comes to supplements, it's best to think about vitamins and minerals as part of a powerful nutritional safety net that can add enormous benefits to your health. While supplements are not intended to replace food, they can definitely play an important role in overall health, anti-aging and prevention. The four supplements I recommend you take daily are:
• A distilled fish oil supplement (2 grams per day)
• Vitamin D (2,000 IU daily – especially during the winter months)
• Probiotics (the "good bacteria" that can aid in digestive health)
Be sure to talk to your doctor to see if a calcium supplement is advised, as it is dependent on age.
