SALT LAKE CITY, June 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- We all have that special man in our life — whether it's our dad, brother, husband, boyfriend or son — which is why recognizing Men's Health Month this June is so important. There are specific health concerns that any man can face, especially as he ages, that need to be addressed to help maintain a healthy lifestyle. Being mindful of these issues and how to prevent them is one of the best Father's Day gifts you can give.
"There are certain steps you can take as a man to help ensure you are aging as health conscious as possible," said Dr. Brian Dixon, USANA's executive director of health and science education. "It gets increasingly more important to watch what you put in your body and how you treat it as you get older. It can be even the simplest things that make the difference in your health."
Here are Dr. Dixon's top tips for men during National Men's Health Month:
- Supplement daily — Multivitamin and mineral supplements can help make up nutritional shortcomings that can occur with even the healthiest diets. They also support optimized cellular function and communication, giving your cells the help they need to work at full capacity.*
- Visit your doctor — Starting around the age range of 40–50, it is considered very important for men to get tested for high blood pressure, cholesterol, colon cancer, prostate cancer, glaucoma and skin cancer. Doing so can help catch a health problem before it gets more serious.
- Exercise differently — Lifting heavy weights can become much harder on your body as you age, so doing things like focusing on your technique, undertaking isolation exercises and continually switching up your workout routine can help maintain a strong healthy body without taxing your muscles and joints. Not to mention supporting testosterone levels.
- Maintain a healthy body weight – It is well established that excess bodyweight is associated with a shorter life expectancy and a decreased quality of life. Through a healthy lifestyle and diet, it is important to make sure we maintain a healthy body weight over the entire course of our lives.
