Foot Exercises Help Boomers, Seniors to Stay Active Longer, Says Xenna CEO

“The older we get, the more important we realize feet are to our overall quality of life. Foot exercises can really help keep feet in shape, improving mobility, coordination, balance and postural stability – all things we need to stay fit and active longer.”

With millions entering retirement age, foot care concerns are being moved to the “high priority” list for boomers and seniors who want to stay fit and active. Carol J. Buck is a foot care expert and is CEO of Xenna Corporation (http://www.xenna.com). With nationwide distribution through WalMart, Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS and other stores, Xenna is a leader in natural, diabetic-friendly foot care products.

Buck says “The older we get, the more important we realize feet are to our overall quality of life. Foot exercises can really help keep feet in shape, improving mobility, coordination, balance and postural stability – all things we need to stay fit and active longer.”

Including foot exercises in a physical fitness plan isn’t difficult, she says. “Most exercises for strengthening feet can be done while watching television or listening to music,” she explains. She suggests the following exercises to help keep feet in shape:

    Alternate flexing your toes up toward you and then pointing away;
    Move your foot in circles (each foot), then side to side;
    Use your feet to pick up small items from the floor, such as coins or pencils;
    Do toe curls by flexing your toes as much as possible, then release.

In addition to doing foot exercises to keep feet supple and strong, Buck says another concern related to foot care as we age is appearance. Aging is associated with yellow, discolored toenails and dry scaly skin on feet and heels. “Though a person of any age can have these problems,” says Buck, “as we age there's an increased tendency to develop these problems, which can cause extreme embarrassment – even depression for some people.”

For unsightly toenails, Xenna’s patented, diabetic-friendly NonyX Nail Gel (http://www.nonyx.com) exfoliates the dark, yellow or thick granular material called keratin debris, which can build up under nails over time. With regular use, this natural ethanoic acid gel breaks down and clears out unattractive keratin debris under the nail. Once keratin debris is removed, NonyX Gel keeps nails looking clear and attractive with regular use. NonyX is on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Nonyx-Nail-Gel/126217594112519?ref=ts.

For those embarrassed by dry, cracked feet diabetic-friendly Xenna’s CalleX Ointment (http://www.callexointment.com) offers a fast-acting way to keep feet soft, smooth and attractive in sandals. CalleX Ointment quickly thins and softens hardened, thickened skin and removes dry, cracked or scaly buildup. CalleX Ointment is used and sold by podiatrists, but can also be purchased in the foot care section of chain drugstores and mass retailers.

What makes CalleX so effective are the natural enzymes in CalleX which exfoliate ONLY dry, hardened skin, leaving normal skin unaffected, as it moisturizes and rejuvenates dry, cracked heels.

Lightly fragranced with refreshing peppermint oil, CalleX Ointment is sold in a 1.75 oz. jar. With daily use, complete exfoliation and/or softening takes between 2 and 4 weeks. CalleX is on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Callex-Exfoliating-Ointment/177971592235302?ref=ts.
