Cholesterol In Young Adults

Dec 5, 2007
According to an industry research report released recently, more young adults are on cholesterol and blood pressure medications than ever before. The numbers of young adults on these medications is rising more rapidly than with senior citizens. According to the president of the American Heart Association, Dr. Daniel W. Jones, this is good news. He says that more people should be on these medications which lower the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Dr. Robert Epstein, chief medical officer at Franklin Lakes, NJ-based Medco, says that this could be indicative of the obesity epidemic that is currently taking place in the United States. However, the earlier these medications are started, the better for the patient experiencing difficulties in these areas.

In the spirit of this interest in prevention and healthcare, it would not be a bad idea to promote it further. There are many products that can be personalized and used to promote a business or organization as well as good health and exercise.

A pedometer is a good start for such a promotion. It will inspire people to take more steps during the day. If you are looking to motivate employees, make it a competition. Whoever takes the most steps in a certain length of days wins a special prize. It would be a great way to promote good health and inspire employees to take a step toward better health. Perhaps less people would be taking the elevator and more people would be prone to taking the stairs.

Your clients and customers would appreciate these products as well. They could be looking for something to help them start exercising more or they just need some inspiration.

Another product that might serve as an inspiration is a sport or nalgene bottle. This could help people to drink less soda and more water or juice. Sport bottles and Nalgenes are incredibly convenient to carry and range in size from 14 ounces to 36 ounces. This may also cut down on the amount of garbage that your business or organization deals with.

If you know of customers, clients or employees that are already into fitness, you could purchase exercise and yoga mats. These mats are easy to carry and come in a variety of colors.

A personal radio is also a great idea for promoting good health. There are few better companions out there than music. Personal radios come in a slew of colors and styles. There are radios available that clip on and some even have fans attached. If the recipient of the gift gets a little overheated during their workout, they can cool down with their new running partner. All radios can also be imprinted with a personal message. Perhaps you wish to combine the pedometer and the radio idea. No problem, Absorbent, Ink. has a pedometer radio available as well.

Despite some rumors, Americans are working to create a healthier life. With this new interest, your business or organization should get in on the act. Not only will you be promoting your company, you will be helping people to live happier, healthier lives.
