You ARE in Control

Did you know that the top causes of death are largely preventable?  Heart disease, stroke, diabetes and some types of cancer are all largely preventable.  Only 20% of your health is controlled by your genetics.  This means that 80% of your health is in YOUR control.  You are in charge of your own health. 

Small changes do make a big difference.  We all know how daunting it is to try to change our habits all at once!  Research has shown that even small changes make a big difference when you change your diet to include a little more fresh fruits and vegetables and/or whole grains, add a little more exercise, or lose a little more of that extra weight.  Starting with small steps helps ensure that the long term benefits will last. 

Adding dietary supplements has also been shown to have tremendous benefits to our health.  Because of things like pollution and the overprocessing of our food supply, very few people get all the nutrients they need through their diet.  Research has shown that supplementing your diet with safe, natural and food based supplements is one of the key factors to overall health.  Think of supplementation as proactive health assurance.

It is never too early or too late to start taking even small steps toward optimal health.  YOU are in control of YOUR health and you CAN do it.
