A lot of people these days are using Invisalign aligners as an alternative to dental braces. The next obvious question is this – is it really effective? In many ways, the answer is a resounding yes. However, you have to understand that Invisalign aligners are made of plastic which means they exert less pressure to the teeth and games. With that said, they are usually not recommended for extreme cases of crooked and misaligned teeth. However, when it comes to moderate crowding of the teeth, Invisalign braces are very effective. The biggest advantage of these aligners is the fact that they are made of smooth and invisible plastic which means people won’t even notice that you are wearing them. You also don’t have to worry about possible side effects to your gums because the materials used are clean, safe, and gum-friendly.

Statistically speaking, people throughout the UK are more likely to be overweight and suffer from chronic health conditions right now than any other time in history, except for when malnutrition was commonplace. This is largely due to a combination of poor diets which don’t provide everything we need in some ways, and exceeds what we need in others, and also our increasingly sedentary lifestyles.

Combating this while working in an office environment, is very difficult, because it is most people’s job to sit at their desk and work at a computer for the vast majority of the day. This doesn’t have to be the case however, as there are some small things that you can do to have an immediate positive impact on your health. This includes things like making sure you get up and walk around periodically, bringing a balanced meal to work so that you don’t rely on unhealthy options, and remembering to look away from your computer screen every now and then to protect your eyes.

Cutting Down On Salt

We’ve discussed cutting your sugar intake on our previous post, so it’s only right we discuss the same for salt. Salt intake should only be ideally one teaspoon a day, but with the types of food the average person eats, the majority are horrifically over their recommended sodium intake.

When selecting foods to eat, choose fruit and vegetables as much as possible as they are low in sodium content. This is the same for canned and frozen fruits/vegetables also.

Try and eat fresh meats over packaged meats. Packaged meats contain more sodium, and of course… Fresh is always better!

If you are worried about your salt intake, check food labels when doing your weekly shop. Manufacturers are legally required to let you know exactly how much of what, you are consuming. Anything labelled in red means it contains over the daily recommended amount.
