New Year, Improved You: Whole Body Health Focused on Prevention
18 Jan
Elderberry and Your Health

Revamping your diet? Back on the treadmill? What about your vitamin and supplement intake? Every January, like clockwork, we all hit the reset button, intent on self-improvement and taking care of ourselves in the new year. 


But life gets busy, putting our health first gets harder, and preventative care falls by the wayside. At Norm’s Farms, we believe wellness doesn’t have to be reactive and it doesn’t have to be difficult. 


We’re providing a few of our favorite tips and tricks to guide your wellness goals in the new year:


Add In Antioxidants: According to the Mayo Clinic, antioxidants are nutrients found in food that may help protect your body’s cells against free radicals, the elements that play a role in heart disease, cancer, and other diseases. Adding antioxidant-rich foods like blueberries, asparagus, beets, kale, strawberries and our beloved elderberries into your diet can increase your blood antioxidant levels to fight oxidative stress and reduce the risk of disease.


Schedule a Check-Up: Routine health care that includes screenings, check-ups, and patient counseling to prevent illnesses, disease, or other health problems, can help you determine how best to take care of yourself this year. 


Ramp Up Your Immune Support: You know the basics - wash your hands, sneeze into your elbow, stay home if you’re sick, but let’s talk about next steps. Did you know that the berries and flowers of elderberry are packed with antioxidants and vitamins that may boost your immune system and help ease and prevent cold and flu symptoms? Check out our Elderberry Wellness Syrup to kick start your immune system all year long. 


Elevate Your Gut Health: ​​There are tons of benefits to keeping your gut happy and healthy, an increase in energy, improved mental health and a healthy nervous system, to name a few. Taking probiotics (try these! Norm’s Farms Organic Elderberry Gummies with Probiotics), staying hydrated and getting a good night’s rest all help your digestive system. 

 

Get Moving: Exercise combats health conditions and diseases, improves your mood, boosts your energy, and promotes better sleep. Whether you prefer aerobic exercise like walking, biking, or swimming, or strength training, all exercise and physical activity are great ways to feel better, boost your health and have fun. 

 

As you set your goals for the new year, we are here to support you. Interested in adding elderberry to your diet?
