Are multivitamins worth the cash?
Yes, and no.
With vitamins and minerals not just critical but essential towards good health, reaching optimum balance makes sense.
A failure to hold a healthy vitamin and mineral balance will likely lead to sub-optimal health and likely illness. From immune strength to energy production, make no mistake, a shortfall could prove a health disaster.
Whole fresh food supplies all the critical vitamins and minerals you need, as nature intended.
OTC vitamin & minerals supplements are said to 'complete' a balanced diet. A gap filler.
Experts will say that in extraordinary situations, supplementation can offer help.
Extraordinary situations could be;
🗹 Extreme athleticism,
🗹 Chronic illness,
🗹 Real food inaccessibility.
If you tick any of these cases, it could draw value from the $25 a month supplementation.
Manufactures claim there are no known obvious side-effects, making them safe after consulting your Physician.
With a reported 10%, only, absorption rate, they appear well safe for most people.
First, I would exhaust a conventional time-honoured approach via a whole food bespoke food plan. Then, with expert advice, perhaps supplementation would work for you.
Do sleeping masks work?
I probably don't sleep as efficiently as a did in my younger years.
Occasionally I'll find it difficult falling to sleep, and at least once a week I'll wake, and fail to return to deeper sleep.
It's as if waking fires up the brain locking the ON switching.
Enter: Musicosy Sleeping Mask.
At $22.99 from Amazon (CLICK), it's worth a crack.
What do they do?
🗹 Block all light with eye comfy support.
🗹 mp3 player using ultra soft (flat) headphones - interwoven into the mask.
🗹 A soft and comfortable velcro tightening system.
Certainly, the blocking of all light is a winner. Preventing eye light when mid-sleep waking reduced my brain spark.
The ear wrapping doesn't prevent sound, but it's certainly comfortable, and practical on a plane.
I used the App, Aura, and the sleep soundscapes which undoubtedly aided undisturbed sleep.
Like a fairway wood, you won't need to use it often, but, it could well be the tool to get you out of a bad place.
