"Your website is so helpful because it
informs us,about symptoms our mothers never spoke about, except Hot Flashes.
I can not thank you enough for easing my worries.".... Laura
Formula W™ by AdvoCare is an important development in women's health supplements. At AdvoCare, we also promote a wellness lifestyle, recognizing that no matter how sophisticated the supplement, nothing replaces or substitutes for wise dietary choices, regular physical activity and other health-promoting practices.
Many Formula W™ users are in the perimenopausal time of their lives - a period where a wellness lifestyle can make a huge difference in how one feels, looks and performs. A distillation of some of the top recommendations by leading health authorities includes:
Consume a diet rich in whole grains, vegetables and fruits (7-9 servings of vegetables and fruits per day).
Consume oily fish twice weekly or take a scientifically sophisticated omega-3 fatty acid supplement. Remember, not all omega-3 supplements are of the same quality or effectiveness.
Maintain bone health. At a minimum, consume at least 1,200 mg calcium and 800 IU vitamin D daily. Additional nutrients such as vitamin K, magnesium and key trace elements such as zinc, boron and manganese are also important for a complete bone health supplement.
Moderate your intake of alcohol to one serving per day.
Balance calorie intake with physical activity (calorie expenditure) to maintain a healthy weight.
Avoid hot flash triggers, e.g., spicy foods, hot beverages.
As we grow older, more physical activity is needed than when we were younger, since metabolism naturally slows down with aging. A wellness lifestyle includes some form of physical activity nearly every day. Most health experts recommend a minimum of 30 minutes and up to 60-90 minutes of physical activity, five or six days a week. Be sure to combine weight-bearing activity (to maintain muscle mass and strength) with aerobic activities to help burn calories and maintain cardiovascular health.
Do not smoke. Because smoking is linked to a decline in estrogen levels, women who smoke reach menopause about two years earlier than nonsmokers. Smoking doubles a woman's odds of developing heart disease and is a major risk factor for osteoporosis.
Be prepared to regulate your body heat. Dress in layers that can be removed if hot flashes occur. Use a hand-held or battery-operated fan for cooling. Take a tepid or cool shower before bedtime.
