Happy Father's Day to all the awesome Dads in the world!
Raising kiddos is not for the fickle-hearted, so shout-out to the real men who serve and honor their families every day with love, protection, support and so much more!
Many will be grilling, baking, and gifting their dads with the treats they know and love, but let's not forget the importance of supporting their health and lifestyle.
Today's men are at higher risk of suffering heart attacks, certain cancers, depression, and other unwanted conditions. In many cases, a healthy diet and lifestyle can help reduce the risk of these conditions. However, the chance of getting your beloved father to quit alcohol, sweets, and fast food may be slim to none. What better way to show Dad your love and appreciation than to gift him extra wellness support to safeguard his health?!
Here are Dr. Ray's top 3 supplements to support Dad's health at any age:
1.) Comprehensive Multivitamin
Taking a once-daily multivitamin can offer extra nutrient support when fruit and veggies are limited in the regular diet. Proper intake of vitamins and minerals can help reduce inflammation and boost energy levels too.
Consider options like Pure Encapsulations O.N.E. Multivitamin or Needed Men's Multi.
Everyone needs good gut support and Dad is no exception. The best foods for supporting a healthy gut include plenty of fruits, veggies, beans, and high-fiber whole grains. But if you're reading this, it's likely those foods are not your top delight and an alternative is in order. Taking a daily probiotic can help Dad build a healthier gut microbiome which can increase bowel regularity and support both the immune and nervous systems.
Consider options like Needed Men's Pre/Probiotic or Ortho Molecular Ortho Biotic
Each day, our bodies are confronted with stressors and pollutants that require extra antioxidants to counter oxidative stress and damage. Most healthy diets contain enough antioxidants to meet our daily needs. But for the Dads that love to indulge, it might prove beneficial to take an antioxidant supplement containing omega-3s, vitamins A, E, D + K, and/or liver-loving herbs such as turmeric and milk thistle.
Consider options like Pure Encapsulations Antioxidant Formula or Needed Men's Omega-3+
Hopefully, these options can help you level up your gift game for Dad versus buying the same ol' typical wallet, tie, or mug. At the very least, you can start a conversation with Dad and share with him this article and considerations for healthy aging. Wellness begins at home!
