FARGO, N.D. and CHICAGO, March 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — From too much screen time to stress and sleepless nights, life throws a lot your way. This can all take a toll on your health, but you can fight back with trusted vitamins and supplements for everyday life. Since 1969, millions have trusted Swanson Health for quality wellness products at a great value. Now, in their 50th year, they’re kicking off birthday festivities at Natural Products Expo West and helping you fight back against life’s daily perils with their Antidotes for Everyday Life and the chance to win a year’s supply of probiotics.

From too much screen time to sleepless nights, fight back against the perils of everyday life with Swanson Health.

«Swanson has a long history of supporting wellness in America, starting with our first catalog in the 60s to our online storefront today,» said Katie Doyle, Chief Executive Officer of Swanson Health. «In 1969 we launched our first health product—vitamin E—right from America’s heartland, where we’re still proudly based today.»

For the past five decades, Swanson has kept pace with changing health needs, with award-winning products and timeless wellness solutions that everyone should add to their daily routine as Antidotes for Everyday Life.

«The reality is we’re all constantly facing the perils of everyday life,» said Lindsey Toth Bristol, MS, RD, Swanson registered dietitian. «Increased screen time, long work hours, less sleep, too many meals without fruits or vegetables—these all take a real toll on your health.»

Swanson’s search for help with life’s little perils began in 1969 with vitamin E, and many of their Antidotes for Everyday Life soon followed suit as nutrition research and science flourished—with something for everyone.

We’re on computers, watching TV and collectively checking our phones about 8 billion times a day.1 That adds up to a lot of blue light exposure—50% of eye doctors report an increase in digital eye strain and effects from blue light.2 Macular carotenoids like lutein and zeaxanthin are plant pigments that help filter digital device blue light and deliver antioxidant support to your eyes.

So much to do, so little time. Did you know that over 40% of Americans admit that they’re tired most of the week?3 But optimized nutrition can help keep you energized. B-complex vitamins are particularly beneficial for energy production—they’re essential for converting food into fuel, making them popular for unlocking energy.

Feeling frazzled? It’s estimated that stress accounts for 75% of all visits to the doctor, and 43% of adults experience symptoms of stress.4Omega-3 fatty acids fight back against many of the health concerns that stress can provoke. They also support a healthy stress response by supporting antioxidant and neurotransmitter activity, in addition to their established heart and brain health benefits.

Pizza night again? We get it. Life can get in the way of the best intentions. Each year, 32.3 million visits to the doctor are about digestive concerns.5 Your diet can disrupt gut microbes, having a domino effect on health. About 70% of your immune system is in your digestive tract, and your digestive health affects nutrient absorption, sleep quality and more.6,7Probiotics reinforce a healthy gut by delivering friendly bacteria to help maintain balance, contributing to overall health.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that about 30% of U.S. workers sleep 6 hours or less each night—that’s 40 million sleep-deprived people!8Melatonin is a hormone that helps maintain healthy sleep-wake patterns, but factors like blue light exposure and age may decrease levels. If you’re having trouble sleeping, a melatonin supplement may help regulate your body’s circadian rhythm.
