Supplement of the month: "FISH OIL SOFT GELS"
You do not want to skip this supplement with your daily vitamins. For balanced health I suggest Fish Oil soft gels because of their amazing benefits.
-High in Omega 3’s
-Provides essential fatty acids to prevent high-blood pressure
-healthy immune system, heart, skin and brain functions
FOOD OF THE MONTH: "BROCCOLI"
I love broccoli!! This green super food should be a staple in everyones diet. Are you having problems with your sinuses this season? Eating broccoli 3 times per week can help reduce inflammation in the walls of your nose. It can also help you breath easier and is a great source of natural fiber that aids in digestion. So next time your in the produce section of your local market make sure you reach for the green veggie that packs a punch to our health!
