Feel Rested and Rejuvenated - 2 Easy Steps!

Do you ever feel like you lie awake during the night and can't relax?? You hear so many suggestions such as don't have your computer on close to bed time, don't exercise right before bed, or don't eat spicy food later in the night, etc, etc, etc.  What can really help us sleep better? So many factors can come into play but I recommend to start with this... vitamin D/Omega-3 supplement and exercise. Simple? Yes.

I have been able to fall asleep much faster and sleep through the night after incorporating these two easy tasks into my everyday routine - CardioTabs Omega-3 fish oil + vitamin D3 and a moderate intensity 30 minute cardio work out whether it be walking, light jog, gardening or a fun visit to the gym (yes, you can make it fun! - changing up your workouts can keep exercise more motivating).

Vitamin D is present in certain foods, such as oily fish including salmon, cod, shrimp and mackerel in addition to milk and eggs. Or better yet, take a step outside and get ten minutes of sun exposure on your arms and legs.  There are still some warm days to come :-)

Being in my third trimester and still working full-time until baby comes, I find it easy to take this high quality liquid omega-3 supplement that includes 1000 IU vitamin D3 and 2200 mg total omega 3 (EPA and DHA). Plus, it benefits your eyes, cognition, skin, heart, hair, joints and blood vessels!

So a quick approach to better sleep - go for a 30 minute walk and then mix in your CardioTabs liquid with a small amount of orange juice or enjoy the citrus flavor plain in just 1 teaspoon - cheers to citrus nutrition!
