Summer fun demands a strong mind and body
Do you spend the long winter months dreaming of everything you will do when the bright sunny days return, then suffer through weeks of spring fever, itching to get outdoors? At last, the sun shines, the green grass grows, the water beckons, and the air conditioner starts blowing. For millions of people around the world, changes in season mean changes in lifestyle. We now find ourselves in the midst of summer. The fireworks have flashed, lightning bugs fill backyards, and our bodies are adjusting to being more active.
Physical activities such as running, cycling, kayaking, or even backyard games in hot weather put extra stress on your body. In addition to staying hydrated and protecting yourself from the sun’s rays, you need to be sure your body has the fuel it needs to support the increased activity and exposure summer brings. This means taking measures to proactively maintain your health from the inside out.
Just like a car, your body needs regular maintenance. You fill your car with gas, check the tire pressure, and change the oil regularly. Think of your body as a machine like your car. If you want peak performance in all conditions (even the heat of summer) you need to take ownership of your own health. Your body needs vitamins and nutrients just like your car needs fuel and oil. If you are feeling sluggish and rundown, this could mean your body needs maintenance. So, how can you be sure you are maintaining your system for peak performance in challenging weather?
An American Academy of Family of Physicians article explains, “Micronutrients are the vitamins and minerals found in food that nourish your body and help keep you healthy.” These nutrients are critical for a healthy body and mind. While ensuring a balanced diet of nutrient-rich foods can provide the basic support your body needs, “research consistently finds that most Americans have diets that lack an appropriate amount of vitamins and minerals.”
The summer heat takes a lot out of us, but you do not have to waste precious sunny days due to low energy. Pyradyne’s advanced health supplements are specifically formulated to provide the nutrients needed to maximize your everyday life. The Complete Mineral Pack provides all of the vitamins and trace minerals required for a healthy, active lifestyle along with a unique herbal tonic that maximizes the results of the Pyradyne system.
So of course, remember to apply sunscreen, drink plenty of fluids, and dress appropriately— but don’t forget to maintain your body from the inside as well! Take ownership of your health and give your body what it needs to ensure you are ready to make the most of these remaining summer days!
