We may be well into the 21st century, but there is still much to discover and understand in the realm of women’s health. Many common diseases disproportionately affect more women than men, and while we can pinpoint certain causes, there is still an unfortunate lack of research into many aspects of women’s health. We’re taking a look at some of the most common women’s health concerns, as well as what types of lifestyle changes can be of support and ways in which C60 can help.

Top Health Concerns for Women

Top Health Concerns for Women

It may come as a surprise, but heart disease causes more deaths in women than in men every year. As a generalized term that refers to any condition affecting the heart, heart disease accounts for 1 in 3 women’s deaths in the U.S. annually. Explains Sierra Samuel, health coach and co-host of The C60 Show, “Heart disease is the biggest health threat to women. It’s the number one killer of women worldwide and it affects women of all ages.”

When it comes to heart attack, warning signs are different for women than for men; women experience milder symptoms that are not as easily recognized, including weakness, shortness of breath, fatigue, and nausea. Such symptoms are often discounted or ignored by both the women experiencing them and their healthcare providers.

Other health conditions that disproportionately affect women include breast cancer; it accounts for 30% of all types of cancer women experience. In addition, 80% of the estimated 10 million Americans who have osteoporosis are female, and women account for 80% of all cases of autoimmune disease. Finally, women are much more likely to develop depression and anxiety than men. Chronic mood disorders play a major role in physical health, a topic we explore in another video.1

Lifestyle Changes to Support Overall Health

The good news is that many (though not all) risk factors for the conditions listed above can be managed or improved with conscious lifestyle choices. When it comes to cardiovascular health, for example, Sierra shares that “80% of your risk factors are within your control.”

Lifestyle habits can and do contribute to the body’s ability to maintain a sense of health and wellness. Reducing or eliminating cigarettes and excessive alcohol consumption equates to fewer carcinogens and inflammatory agents within the body. Because inflammation contributes to nearly every condition listed above (and many more common conditions not mentioned here), it’s wise to identify which personal lifestyle factors contribute to inflammation and find a way to manage them.

Diet and exercise are two of the most direct and effective ways to control the inflammatory response and ensure your body is supplied with vital nutrients that help stave off disease. Regular, moderate cardiovascular exercise (even walking) reduces the risk of heart conditions, improves mood, and supports bone density.

Choose plant-based foods that are naturally anti-inflammatory (cooking with olive or avocado oil, for example) and those that are rich in probiotics (organic foods that are cultured or fermented) to reduce inflammation and support a healthy balance of bacteria in the body. These foods are key to supporting the immune system and mental health.

Avoiding foods that your body, in particular, is sensitive to is another important way to manage inflammation, so it can be beneficial to learn to pay attention to feelings of headache, tiredness, or digestive upset after eating certain foods. Says Sierra, “It’s all connected. If you treat one thing you’re treating the rest. By treating your body right with healthy food and healthy diet and exercise you’re going to help everything.” When in doubt, choosing foods that are organic and minimally processed will likely lead you in the right direction.

What Can C60 Do for Women’s Health?

C60 Purple Power is an antioxidant more powerful than any other antioxidant discovered. 2 With its unmatched ability to neutralize free radicals (aka reactive oxidative species or ROS), C60 reduces the oxidative burden on the body, a major contributor to inflammation. Promoting a healthy inflammatory response has a beneficial effect on any conditions rooted in inflammation, including, but not limited to, cancer, heart disease, and autoimmune conditions.

C60’s antioxidant effects also contribute to healthy cellular function, which means mitochondria can produce ATP, neurotransmitters, and pregnenolone, the precursor to all hormones, at optimal levels. Supporting healthy neurotransmitter and hormone production can contribute to the management of mood and autoimmune symptoms, which may present as solitary conditions or as contributing factors to other health concerns. In addition, C60 promotes the development of stem cells, which the body uses for a variety of functions from immune support to the replacement of damaged cells.

C60 Purple Power’s antioxidant capabilities relieve oxidative stress at the cellular level, supporting a healthy immune system and promoting a balanced immune response.
