July is National Blueberry Month

BlueberriesThe peak harvest time for blueberries is usually July. We should be able to find a wonderful bounty of these tasty and beneficial berries at every food market now.

Did you know blueberries rank the highest of any fruit for antioxidants? Antioxidants are said to neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause. Antioxidants are also essential to boost the immune system and maintain optimum mental health. When buying blueberries, make sure to look for ones that are firm, plump, and deeply-colored. The deeper the color, the more antioxidants the berry has.

Blueberries offer other benefits, too. One cup delivers 14% of the recommended daily dose of fiber and nearly a quarter of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C. They have fewer than 100 calories per cup - a wonderful snack for the calorie conscious person. Their balance of vitamins and other nutrients make them a great choice to keep your eyes (vision) healthy, help lower cholesterol levels and contribute to proper heart health.

If you and your health care provider have determined you should add a supplement to boost your system - add more antioxidants - CoQ10 may be a good choice for you. At Walker's Drug Store we have Co Q10 as one of our featured items this month. Please visit us to take advantage of this and other sales that may be of interest to you.

As always, we encourage you to consult your health care provider before taking any medications or supplements.

June is Migraine Awareness Month

Aching head Migraine, cluster headaches, and other headache disorders are misunderstood, under treated, and surrounded by myths and stigma.

Among the things most puzzling about these, often debilitating, headaches is their cause. During the summer months headaches can be more persistent than any other time. Combine the heat and the humidity with the change of routine due to summer schedules and it may be the perfect storm for an unbearable headache.

It is beneficial to learn as much as possible about what triggers these headaches and avoid those triggers, if possible. In these summer months plan to spend time in a cool environment, stay well hydrated and maintain a "normal" routine of eating, sleeping and exercise.

It is wise to keep medications available that will alleviate headache pain if it can not be avoided. At Walker's Drug Store we have several analgesics as featured items this month. Please visit us before your next headache.

As always, we encourage you to consult your health care provider before taking any medications or supplements.
