Home health care is a great option for individuals who could use some assistance, but are still mostly capable of managing their lifestyle on their own. At Gulfshore home care we do our best to aid you in any way we can, but if you’re looking for ways that you can start improving your health on your own, managing your daily nutrients is a great place to start.  

As you age, your body isn’t able to retain certain nutrients as well as it once was, so deficiencies happen that weaken your heart, immune system, bones and more. Here are 3 nutrients you can add to your daily intake to start improving the health and wellness of your body!

Fiber

Fiber creates a healthy digestive tract by ensuring that all foods are pushed through properly. Fiber is often found in grains, beans, fruits and vegetables. Most adults don’t get the suggested amount of fiber. Add a few of these items to your diet and your fiber levels will rise.

Omega-3

Omega-3 is a great addition to any individual’s diet. Omega-3 fats are found primarily in fish, although, fish oil supplements are a fantastic way to get the omega-3 benefits. Omega-3 has been said to possibly reduce symptoms of arthritis, slowing the progression of age-related macular degeneration, and to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

Magnesium

Magnesium is found in unprocessed foods. Magnesium builds a strong immune system, a healthy heart, and strong bones along with countless other physiological benefits. The best way to increase your intake of magnesium is to add as many natural, unprocessed foods, to your diet.

The addition of these nutrients to your daily intake will create results that you are sure to notice. While these nutrients do provide health benefits, they don’t manage all health care needs. Call Gulfshore Home Care in Naples for your home care needs, and let us assist you in any way possible.
