Why is sleep important? Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety. The way you feel while you’re awake depends in part on what happens while you’re sleeping. During sleep, your body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health. In children and teens, sleep also helps support growth and development. The damage from sleep deficiency can occur in an instant (such as a car crash), or it can harm you over time. For example, ongoing sleep deficiency can raise your risk for some chronic health problems. It also can affect how well you think, react, work, learn, and get along with others. Persistent sleeplessness may be a symptom of a more serious underlying health problem and should be discussed with your healthcare provider. Lifestyle changes, like de-stressing your life, play an important role in getting quality sleep. See our top tips for better sleep. 15 Top Tips for Better Sleep Ban blue light from the bedroom (eg. TVs, computers, cell phones); the short waves of blue light may interfere with sleep. Avoid naps, particularly within 8 hours of bedtime, as napping can sabotage a good night’s sleep. Block the clock – glancing at the clock in the night may set your mind working about how few hours of sleep remain. Try a pillow between your knees for back pain – mid or lower back pain may not wake you, but it can disturb the deep, restful stages of sleep. Put your neck in neutral – bad pillows can lead to stiff necks and poor sleep; choose a pillow that aligns your nose with the centre of your body. Set your body clock – establish a regular routine of going to sleep and waking including weekends. Cut the caffeine – avoid the stimulant effects of caffeine in drinks and food after the middle of the day. Exercise regularly – but not too close to bedtime, as a post-workout burst of energy can keep you awake. Eat right at night – avoid heavy foods and big meals late in the day as they tax the digestive system and make quality sleep hard to get. Avoid alcohol at bedtime. It might make you sleepy to begin with, but it actually causes more frequent awakenings and less restful sleep. Avoid drinking within 2 hours of bedtime to prevent nighttime toilet trips. Neutralise noise – dripping taps, barking dogs etc. can disturb your sleep. “White noise” like an air conditioner or fan can help block the bumps in the night. Or try ear plugs. Quit smoking – nicotine is a stimulant, just like caffeine. Keep pets out of bed – their movements can disturb and they bring allergens into the bed. Establish a ‘winding down’ routine in the evenings, like reading something calm, meditation, or taking a warm bath. Even a 10 minute pre-sleep ritual may be beneficial.

One-A-Day Mega Multi Softgels

One-A-Day Mega Multi Softgels

One-a-day Mega-Multi. The body is designed to function properly fueled by a complex array of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other nutrients SANDERSON™ One-A-Day Mega Multi is one of the most comprehensive multi-supplement formulations available in a single daily dose. Ingredients are at meaningful levels to provide maintenance of daily health, to fill gaps caused by inadequate diet and resist the attacks of free radicals caused by pollution, poor diet, smoking and drinking. Even if you never eat junk food or miss meals, your body may still need a bit of help getting all the nutrients it needs to stay strong, because many of the refined foods in a typical Western diet have been depleted of various vitamins and minerals. This is where a good multivitamin may help. In addition, boosting your intake of the nutrients Vitamin C, Zinc, Vitamin D and Probiotic may help prevent marginal deficiencies that could lower your immune system defenses, potentially making you more susceptible to infections. The body is designed to function properly fueled by a complex array of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other nutrients. Modern diets and lifestyles containing processed foods, additives, pollutants, alcohol and stress may all result in a type of ‘malnutrition’ that prevents us from performing at our best. Poor diet may result in symptoms such as fatigue, poor digestion, skin disorders and other ailments. A comprehensive daily multi-supplement is like nutritional insurance, helping to plug the gaps caused by poor diet and lifestyle choices. The Journal of the American Medical Association (2002; 287:3127-9) published a report by the Harvard researchers, Fletcher and Fairfield, stating that “Most people do not consume an optimal amount of all vitamins by diet alone. Pending strong evidence of effectiveness from randomized trials, it appears prudent for all adults to take vitamin supplements.” The two Harvard doctors reviewed approximately 40 years of research and discovered that there was a link between vitamins and certain diseases. While this information has been believed by many health care professionals for decades, the research review provided some concrete evidence. For example, these doctors reported “suboptimal levels of vitamins B-6 and B-12 are a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, neural tube defects, and colon and breast cancer; low levels of vitamin D contribute to osteopenia (mild thinning of the bone mass) and fractures; and low levels of the antioxidant vitamins (A, C, and E) may increase risk for several chronic diseases.” SANDERSON™ One-A-Day Mega Multi is one of the most comprehensive multi-supplement formulations available in a convenient single daily softgel capsule suitable for both men and women. KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS: SANDERSON™ Mega Multi is a comprehensive complex of vitamins, minerals, herbs and other nutrients to provide general nutrition insurance. Ingredients are at meaningful levels to provide maintainance of daily health, to fill gaps caused by inadequate diet and resist the attacks of free radicals caused by pollution, poor diet, smoking, and drinking. Low levels of essential vitamins, minerals or other nutrients can cause fatigue, sleeping difficulties and lowered immunity, which increases people’s susceptibility to infection. Cigarettes, alcohol and stress can also increase nutritional demands and reduce nutrient absorption, which can lead to tiredness and irritability. This means that many people may benefit from supplementing with SANDERSON™ Mega Multi. Contraindications: Not be be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Available in a 90 tablet pack. EACH SOFTGEL CAPSULE CONTAINS: Vitamin A 5000iu Vitamin B1 (as Thiamine Mononitrate) 25mg Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) 25mg Vitamin B3 (as Niacinamide) 25mg Vitamin B5 (as d-Calcium Pantothenate) 27mg Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxine HCL) 30mg Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) 200mcg Vitamin B12 (as Cyanocobalamin) 25mcg Biotin 25mcg...
