We all know that information is power. Studies show that women are more likely than men to be surprised by sexual challenges as the result of aging. For many women, concerns associated with aging and menopause can range from wrinkles to energy levels to healthy sexual function. Renowned Sexologist and Marriage & Family Therapist – and expert consultant for Twinlab – Dr. Kat has helped thousands of people suffering from poor sexual health and offers information and practical advice to anyone looking to feel vibrant, sexy and healthy – no matter how old they are!
Here are some of Dr. Kat’s tips for supporting your health in order to feel sexy and vibrant:
- Reduce stress. We all know that stress can wreak havoc on our energy level and our appearance. Get plenty of sleep and take regular breaks throughout the day to get some fresh air or just simply step away from the computer, sit quietly and breathe. Herbal teas such as Passionflower and Valerian can help to ease tension. One favorite is Alvita herbal teas (www.alvita.com). Dr. Kat recommends keeping a bottle of Twinlab L-Theanine Dots in your purse. L-theanine can support mental alertness while promoting relaxation.
- Menopause Support. Menopause is inevitable, although you can help support your body for a smooth transition. Dr. Kat recommends continuing to make sex a priority. She also recommends taking a product like Twinlab’s Dual Action Menopause Response, which is formulated with herbal ingredients that help relieve six occasional menopause-related symptoms, including hot flashes, night sweats, nervousness, moodiness, sleeplessness and vaginal dryness.
- Protect Your Cells. Get antioxidant protection against premature cellular aging and oxidative stress with a product like Twinlab Age-Defense Telomere Multi, which also supports energy production. You can also get antioxidant protection and help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles with Skin Within. Be sure to drink plenty of water and eat a lot of antioxidant foods such as blueberries, dark chocolate and nuts.
- Get Enough Sleep. A good night’s sleep makes everything better. Be sure to unwind at least 20 minutes before going to bed. Turn off all electronics, and relax with a soothing herbal tea like Alvita Chamomile. If your body needs a little extra help, Twinlab Melatonin Dots promote optimal sleep quality.
- Maintain a Healthy Diet. Avoid processed foods and sugar and be sure to eat a lot of fresh fruits, vegetables and lean protein. Cut back on alcohol. And take time to thoroughly savor your meals. The more satiated you are, the less likely you will be to over indulge.
