National Employee Wellness Month is recognized every year in June to bring attention to the importance of maintaining the physical, mental and emotional health of employees. It is a time when employers are encouraged to create new wellness offerings or enhance existing programs they offer, and employees can learn about and adopt proactive strategies and supplements to help improve their daily lives.
A demanding career often creates stress and anxiety for employees as they try to maintain a positive work-life balance, which takes a toll on both the physical and mental health of busy professionals. Farlong Nutraceutical offers a number of proprietary formulas and supplements that can help promote cognitive health, optimize energy levels, and boost the immune system.
To keep your mind sharp and refreshed, Farlong’s Brain Advanced Support contains Lifeflower® Erigeron Breviscapus extract, which helps to maintain healthy cognitive function by encouraging blood flow to the brain. The boost to blood circulation provided by this supplement can also benefit the cardiovascular system. The recommended dosage is one capsule daily with a meal.
For an energy and stamina boost, Farlong’s Astaxanthin supports cardiovascular, brain and joint health including physical performance and stamina, anti-aging and UV protection. Astaxanthin is a carotenoid recognized as the strongest natural antioxidant which works to boost your immune system and provide anti-inflammatory effects. As a dietary supplement, Astaxanthin can be made into softgels, tablets, capsules or a liquid, and it can be added into foods and beverages.
To enhance your immune system, Bee Propolis has been used extensively throughout history in both ancient Greece and China. Propolis is one of the most popular supplement foods in the market due to its efficacy and side-effect-free properties. Propolis contains a complex blend of biochemical elements including beeswax, essential oils, vitamins, and bioflavonoids that work to strengthen the immune system. The recommended dosage is one capsule daily.
Take time this month to learn about any wellness programs or benefits your employer may provide, evaluate your physical and mental health, and find the natural supplements, extracts, and/or treatments that can best improve your physical, mental and emotional health.
