Nutrition month 2020

March is an exciting month for it signifies the coming of spring, it is also National Nutrition Awareness Month. Receiving a regular chiropractic adjustment coupled with a healthy diet is a magnificent combination to maintain excellent health.

Here are some tips to heighten your nutrition for the month of March.

Reduce your sodium intake: With all of the delicious goodies readily available to us, it can be quite difficult to completely cut out foods that contain sodium. There are a variety of of snacks that contain a high amount of sodium , opt for choices that are labeled as “reduced sodium”. Also, try to avoid processed and pre-prepared foods as they normally contain an elevated sodium content. Reducing the amount of sodium in your diet can help lower blood pressure, reduce bloating, and decrease the possibility of headaches.

Cut down on caffeine: Ok, now I know for this section, many of us are saying, “No way!! I need my daily latte!” I for one love a caramel iced coffee myself but at least cutting back to one caffeinated beverage a day can help improve the function of your digestion system and help improve sleep.

Try to cook whenever possible: Cooking at home and using wholesome ingredients is the best option to maintain excellent health, it also saves money. Try to purchase as many fresh fruits and vegetables to incorporate into meals. When cooking, look for ingredients and items that do not contain or contain little additives and preservatives to ensure you are consuming the most vitamins and minerals. Your tummy, body and wallet will thank you! nutrition
