Mother’s Day Gift Guide
Mother’s Day is right around the corner. It's your chance to celebrate your mom, grandmother, or another motherly figure in your life. And what better way to express your gratitude than to give the gift of health?
If you’re still looking for a Mother's Day delivery gifts, we have some great ideas that will make these special ladies feel loved and appreciated on this day.
The Gift of Heart Health
As you probably know, there's a strong link between inflammation and heart disease. Usually, the inflammation is caused by eating too many inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids (found in vegetable oils like soybean, canola, corn, and sunflower) and not enough anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids (found in fatty fish and fish oil supplements).
It’s hard to blame anyone for this. Omega-6s are in countless common processed foods. Not to mention, a lot of people simply don’t enjoy eating omega-3-rich fatty fish like tuna, salmon, or mackerel.
If mom's one of those people, she’s in luck. Eating seafood is no longer needed to get the daily requirement of omega-3s, thanks to fish oil supplements. Even better, omega-3 fish oil supplements protect the heart by balancing out the omega-6/omega-3 ratio.
In one study, researchers looked at omega-3 and omega-6 levels in tissue samples of heart disease patients. Omega-3s were significantly lower in patients who had heart attacked and other heart-related events. The researchers concluded that omega-3 fatty acids are in fact cardioprotective.
Omega-3s are especially important for women because heart disease is their top killer—and risk increases with age. This Mother’s Day, we recommend buying a high-quality fish oil supplement like Newport Natural Health’s Omega-D3. It contains therapeutic levels of omega-3s along with vitamin D (which many women are deficient in) and the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin.
The Gift of Beauty
All moms are beautiful—but why not make yours feel even MORE beautiful than she already is by pampering her with luxurious, all-natural skin care?
Amaki's Japanese Tsubaki facial oil (also known as camellia oil) is a great idea if your mom is a fan of high-quality, yet simple and clean, skin care.
Tsubaki oil has been used since ancient times to restore the look and feel of skin, giving it a more youthful appearance and texture. Amaki's Tsubaki oil is full of quick-absorbing essential fatty acids and antioxidants, which replenish moisture and elasticity in all types of skin, even extremely dry and mature skin.
In addition, this formulation includes rice bran, argan, jojoba, and sunflower oils, along with vitamin E (which helps counteract the signs of sun damage) and various essential oils.
It’s a full-sensory experience that mom will love this Mother’s Day—and beyond!
