WASHINGTON — A campaign managed and funded by the Council for Responsible Nutrition Foundation has partnered with an Academy Award-nominated actress and screenwriter, who will share her tips on incorporating the three pillars of a smart wellness regimen (healthy diet, dietary supplements and exercise) into a healthy lifestyle.
CRNF said Nia Vardalos, known for such films as "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" and "My Life in Ruins," will be part of the "Life...supplemented campaign" and will be encouraging consumers to optimize their personal health by utilizing the tools found on the "Life…supplemented" website, which include new and updated tools:
My Wellness Scorecard, a fun, free and interactive survey which assesses your current level of overall well-being and provides some simple tips and actionable steps for how you can improve your health;
The Supplemental, a weekly blog featuring a cadre of well-known experts in a variety of areas ranging from nutrition to fitness to aging gracefully;
Supplement Library, which provides easy-to-navigate information on specific supplements; and
WannaBeWell mobile application, a soon-to-be launched tool that will help consumers focus on their health in a fun way, wherever they are.
"A few years ago, I took a critical look at what I was doing, health-wise, and realized I needed to make some changes. I made a commitment to myself that I would improve my overall health," Vardalos said. "I started eating healthier, taking supplements that my doctor recommended and working exercise into my daily routine. I have more energy and I feel good about what I'm doing. I like being a part of a campaign that encourages people to get healthy."
Added Judy Blatman, SVP communications for the Council for Responsible Nutrition, who oversees the "Life…supplemented" campaign, "As a busy mom with a busy career, Nia faces many of the same challenges as the rest of us. What do we do to stay healthy, and how do we find the time to do it? She's someone who is mindful of her health, and pays attention to what she eats, what supplements she takes, and how she can work exercise in to her routine. We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with her."
