Is Your Body’s Check Engine Light On?

If you own a vehicle, or really any piece of equipment that requires constant upkeep to continue functioning correctly, you know how important preventative maintenance is. You also know how easy it is to get behind on preventative maintenance, or to constantly kick the can down the road for another day.

Then it happens: a major problem–and one that probably could have been avoided with the preventative maintenance that you declined. It’s a frustrating situation all around, because now a smaller problem turned into a bigger problem, and with just a little bit of attention and care, it could have been avoided.

Now, you may be asking yourself, “what does this have to do with a health blog?”

Well, your body is the exact same way.

It’s Time For Some Preventative Maintainenance On Your Body

Just like we do with our cars, Americans tend to ignore the preventative maintenance needed on our bodies. Additionally, we tend to ignore the issues that we view as “small” until they become “big enough” problems to care about.

“I’ll start eating better after the holidays.”

“I’ll cut out drinking soda once the weekend is over with.”

We constantly kick the can down the road and then wonder why we have health issues pop up.

Not All Multivitamin Supplements Are The Same

It is currently estimated that one in three adults in the United States takes a multivitamin supplement on a daily basis, with the percentage of users gradually increasing as age increases.

This huge user base has caused the dietary supplement industry to go over $50 billion in total sales per year, which, in turn, creates opportunities for many different companies to enter the supplement market with their own product.

When you go down the supplement aisle in your local grocery store,

You Need To Add An Iodine Supplement To Your Life

As we here at Truehope have frequently discussed, the standard American diet does not provide our bodies with the sufficient levels of vitamins and minerals that it needs, which is why adding a supplement like Truehope EMPowerplus Advanced can have significant positive effects on both your mental and overall health.

Examining The Link Between Heart Health and Micronutrients

The month of February has several associations with the heart. The two most prominent among those, however, are Valentine’s Day (of course) as well as the fact that February is American Heart Month. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, and one-third of all global deaths each year can be attributed to cardiovascular disease overall.

Many doctors worldwide say that these deaths are mainly due to people’s unwise diet choices and high salt intake–although we’ve already talked about how important salt (the right kind of salt) is for your body–but another link continues to pop up in research all around the globe: micronutrient deficiency.

Osteoporosis Rates Continue To Rise. Here’s How To Prevent It

If you are a relatively healthy young adult, you probably haven’t given much thought to osteoporosis. As you age, though, the risk for developing this disease continues to rise. As of 2020, an estimated 53.6 million U.S. adults aged 50 years or older–over 50% of that total population–had either osteoporosis or low bone mass.

According to the Cleveland Clinic, “Osteoporosis weakens bones, making them more susceptible to sudden and unexpected fractures. The disease often progresses without any symptoms or pain,

Your Secret Weapon To Stay Healthy (Hint: It’s Not Vitamin C)

It’s that time of year when our immune systems start getting tested. Flu and other viruses typically peak between December and February, and many people flock to the grocery stores to stock up on oranges and other citrus fruits to get that extra boost of Vitamin C to help their body in case they get sick.

But what if I told you that Vitamin C isn’t as powerful as most people believe? And that there’s another supplement out there that has up to four times as much antioxidant capacity of Vitamin C?

Let’s Make Habits, Not Resolutions

We’re to that point in the new year where New Year’s Resolutions begin to fail and/or be abandoned. Yep, not even three weeks into the year and this is when most people have already quit on the “new year, new me” goals. This day has been appropriately dubbed “Quitter’s Day.”

While it is unfortunate that so many people don’t reach their resolutions, it’s important to remember that in order to achieve a goal that you set up for yourself,

What Does ‘Eating Healthy’ Actually Mean?

“I’m going to start eating healthy.”

We hear this phrase a lot. Maybe you’ve said it recently yourself. Eating healthy is a common goal that many of us have when it comes to improving our life and our nutrition.

But what does “eating healthy” actually mean?

For some people, eating “healthy” may mean adding a salad to their dinner of fried chicken and fries. For others, eating “healthy” could mean that they only go through McDonald’s three times per week instead of four.
