The 2020s are meant to be the decade of healthy ageing. And we’re making it so by bringing you inspiring ways to age-well. As many know, the Starts at 60 Marketplace is now open for business and we’re having some terrific fun seeking out solutions to common challenges faced by you, our valued community.
We are certainly not health specialists here at Starts at 60 but we are great listeners who work hard to bring you all the things people over 60 want and need. So consider this an underground list of the stuff people are talking about, that we’ve gone out of our way to source so you can buy it on the Starts at 60 Marketplace.
Many say the key to a lot of back pain sits in your feet and footwear. Any of us who wore high-heels for too many years can probably attest that as truth. Orthotic footwear such as the Zori sandals and slides have been in huge demand from those who have worked this out. The Zori provides orthotic benefits to help combat lower back pain through supportive shoes. The sandals offer comprehensive heel cup support, metatarsal support & cushioning and arch support. There’s products for men and women, and Starts at 60 Members get a $29.95 Pain Relief Foot Cream as a gift with purchase (offer ends 14 Oct 2020).
We have sought out a range of solutions to help with sore heels, arches and bunions which many people have complained about. Consider the Bunion Sleeve, a lightweight fabric sleeve to correct bunions and make shoes more comfortable. Or you might consider the Plantar Fasciitis Socks, unisex treatment for plantar fasciitis, heel pain, Achilles tendonitis and swelling. Or perhaps the gel arches which are shock-absorbing, pressure-reducing, soft gel foot arch supports that relieve the discomfort and pain associated with flat arches, cavus foot (high-arched feet) and plantar fasciitis.
We have heard people complain about the discomfort of post-menopausal sweating and the general increase in perspiration that comes with summer, outdoor activities and less clothing – not to mention the chafing, tinea and other challenges it can cause. And we’ve found a range of anti-sweat and anti-chafe solutions for the whole body that people say works well. If you suffer excessive sweating or its side-effects there is a way to feel a little more comfortable.
(might assist with arthritis, gut health, anxiety and other issues but please do your own research)
There’s two really exciting ranges of products in this space that we’ve heard a lot about. Those who suffer arthritis have murmured of the benefits. We never make claims we can’t support though! So take a look and draw your own conclusions.
Turmeric and Black Pepper capsules which, for those of you who are already convinced of the health benefits of turmeric and curcumin, it is worth a big look at this one. Research has shown that the bioavailability of turmeric is improved by up to 2000% when combined with one of the components in black pepper.
Have you ever heard about the possible benefits of hemp seed oil? 100% pure hemp seed oil, capsules and other products are packed with omegas 3, 6, & 9 which are proven to have anti-inflammatory and calming properties. We’ll encourage you to do your own research on this product range as it is a really emerging space. The hemp product range spans 100% pure hemp oil, capsules, creams and products for pets too, which really are worth a look.
