Fit Fathers

According to the American College of Sports Medicine, moderate-intensity aerobic activity is recommended for 30 minutes a day or five times per week for 150 minutes every week. This should be coupled with muscle-strengthening activities two times a week that will work for all muscle groups.

To help Dad always feel his fittest, have him book a Fitness OTC & Supplement Consultation at TLC Medical Arts Pharmacy.


Men Have Hearts Too

Cardiovascular/Heart disease plays a major threat to Dad’s heart health. This condition can affect how blood flows through the body. Proper blood flow carries oxygen to the body and carries away waste. Heart disease can develop when this system begins to fail because of issues with blood vessels, blood clots, or even the heart itself. To prevent heart disease, schedule a Heart Health conversation with your TLC Medical Arts Pharmacy Pharmacist. If he takes any blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, or high cholesterol medications,he needs to be aware of the varying degree of health risks involved. Heart Health consultations are essential for patients with or without prescribed medications. There are several OTC items at your pharmacy that can help Dad’s heart health which include:

We highly recommend that your Dad consults with his healthcare provider about which supplements are best for his health. During your next visit to TLC Medical Arts Pharmacy, Dad can book a Heart Health Conversation to better understand his heart meds and learn the best ways to stay healthy and happy.


Healthy Meal Choices for Dad

The best thing that Dad can do to benefit his health is to improve his diet. Food is fuel for the body, and some foods are better than others. We recommend that your Dad uses moderation with his diet, implementing new, healthy foods throughout the week. When Dad eats right, he enjoys:

  • Optimized heart health

  • Improved cholesterol control

  • Increased exercise endurance

  • Better sleep


No matter what your Dad’s diet looks like, your TLC Medical Arts Pharmacy Pharmacist can motivate your Dad to make healthier choices for his overall health. A Healthy Plate Consultation will help Dad:

  • Make better food choices

  • Plan healthy meals for the family

  • Learn what foods are best to prevent heart disease

  • Be aware of what foods can affect cholesterol levels


This Father’s Day, celebrate Dad by allowing him to live a long, healthy, and happy life with the help of a professional pharmacist!
