As Seen on Lifetime TV: Fight Back Against the Perils of Everyday Life
Lindsey Toth, MS, RD • January 7, 2019

Daily life can take a toll on our health. Even with the best intentions to eat well and take care of ourselves, reality can find ways to throw a wrench in those plans. The good news is that you can fight back. So, if you find yourself feeling frazzled and staring at screens all day, running low on energy or struggling to sleep at night, or having a few too many quick meals without fruits and vegetables—this post is for you.

Swanson Health’s Lindsey Toth, MS, RD, and Amy Sunderman, MS, RD, Director of Science & Innovation, recently appeared on Lifetime TV’s The Balancing Act to debut Swanson’s Antidotes for Everyday Life—time-tested solutions for wellness.

Discover how Swanson's Antidotes for Everyday Life can help you:

  • Are you always in front of a screen? The average adult spends over 11 hours a day on digital screens.1 The blue light from these screens can cause eye strain and disrupt sleep-wake patterns. Lutein—also found in our award-winning Vision Defense—is a key carotenoid that helps protect eyes from damaging blue light rays. And no matter your age, you can’t ignore eye health.
  • Feeling sluggish midday? Get proactive about energy instead of reaching for sugar or caffeine as a short-term solution to your 3pm slump. A B-complex vitamin optimizes the creation of energy from food, leading to longer-term energy production.
  • Overstressed? Studies show that 77% of people say they often experience physical symptoms of stress, and 75 to 90% of all doctor visits are for stress-related health complaints.2 Adding an omega-3 fatty acid to your routine can help protect you from the potential health effects of daily stress.
  • Having digestion issues? Most of us don’t eat as well as we want to, which affects our health in countless ways, including our digestive health. Did you know that over 70% of your immune system lives in your gut?3 So reinforcing gut health with a daily probiotic is important.
  • Trouble sleeping? 30% of Americans sleep less than 7 hours a night.4 Low melatonin is one reason many of us have trouble sleeping, so adding a melatonin supplement to your sleep regimen can help tell your body it’s time to sleep.

Swanson’s Basic Antidotes for Everyday Life

Swanson Ultra Lutein
This super-potent lutein supplement delivers 40 mg lutein from marigold flower extract to fight eye fatigue and support a healthy and strong retina and macula.

Swanson Super Stress B-Complex with Vitamin C
Swanson Super Stress B Complex is a unique complex that is specially formulated to help replenish nutrients that are most in demand during high-stress times. Each capsule combines a generous supply of B-complex vitamins with the powerful antioxidant protection of high-potency vitamin C.

This premium, award-winning supplement was named 2018 Omega-3 Product of the Year by NutraIngredients USA. Featuring life’s OMEGA, which delivers the highest concentration of EPA and DHA available in a plant-based product, this non-GMO, sustainably sourced vegan omega-3 supplement is your premium antidote for everyday stress.

Swanson Probiotic for Daily Wellness
A daily probiotic supplement that nurtures a healthy gut microbiome for digestion & immune support.

It also supports respiratory health, microflora balance and healthy blood lipid levels within the normal range.

Swanson Melatonin Dual-Release
Swanson Ultra's advanced Dual-Release Melatonin takes its cue from nature, releasing melatonin in stages, just as the body does when preparing for a restful night. You get 1.5 mg right away, when you need it most, and another 1.5 mg is gradually released throughout the night to ensure that you get the rest you deserve.

Swanson’s Premium Antidotes for Everyday Life

Swanson Real Food B-Complex
This premium B-complex formula features B vitamins sourced from organically cultivated quinoa sprouts to support energy production and metabolic health, heart health, mental health and help maintain cell-to-cell communication in the brain.
