After the lost summer of 2020, this year you deserve a summer to remember! Sunfiber is here to help with tips for avoiding common mistakes so you can balance all that fun with healthy habits.
- Running yourself ragged: As your social calendar fills again, it’s easy to take on too much or stay up too late. Exhaustion takes a toll on your immune system. In addition to prioritizing rest, increase your intake of soluble fiber to help nourish your gut, which is crucial to your immune system. Supplementing with Sunfiber is an easy way to fill the 10- to 15-gram fiber deficiency gap most Americans have. Sunfiber is a prebiotic fiber so it feeds the gut’s good bacteria, an important piece of a strong immune system.
- Not drinking enough water: Hot weather not only makes dehydration more of a risk, it also makes sugary drinks extra appealing. It’s easy to quickly pile on excess calories, which may lead to weight gain and other health issues. Drinking a glass of water for every sugary drink will help quench your thirst and cut back on calories.
- Overindulging in unhealthy food: Summer is all about fairs, festivals, patio happy hours, ice cream and the list goes on. Too much of a good thing may leave you feeling sluggish, bloated and uncomfortable. Boosting your fiber intake – by starting each day with Sunfiber – may help. It nurtures your digestive health, is low FODMAP, doesn’t cause excess gas and will help put you on the path to regularity.
- Forgoing sun protection: It only takes about 15 minutes to get the vitamin D that your body needs, but after a long winter indoors it may be tempting to push the limits. You can still enjoy feeling the hot sun on your face, just make sure you apply sunscreen first and keep a bottle on hand to reapply throughout the day. Make a wide-brimmed hat your go-to summer accessory!
Get out there and enjoy yourself this summer! Just don’t forget to care for yourself at the same time.
