Perhaps we would approach aging differently if we were educated and armed with the education and tools necessary to age as healthily as possible.
I run the risk of not getting the right amount of nutrients from my diet if I am not aware how much I really need. And the most reliable way to know how much I really need is to do tests which will show the amount of these nutrients in my body.
March is National Nutrition Month, and I think many of us would agree that the nutrition of our children is of the utmost importance. What people may not realize, however, is that women need to consume a healthy diet even before getting pregnant. Our diet before pregnancy may affect the health of our future child.
In shocking news, a personal trainer and father of two in the U.K. named Thomas Mansfield died from a caffeine overdose after consuming an amount of a caffeine powder supplement equating to 200 cups of coffee. According to BBC News, Mansfield used kitchen scales to calculate the amount of powder he was consuming. Tragically, a miscalculation cost him his life. He was just 29-years-old. The coroner said the cause of death was “caffeine toxicity.”
In my opinion, many people underestimate the power of walking when it comes to overall health benefits. Maybe it’s because we tend to associate a good, effective workout with a lot of sweat and a rapidly beating heart.
You can help protect the delicate balance of microbes in your gut by avoiding products with potentially harmful ingredients and working with your doctor or pharmacists to reduce the impact of medications you need to take.
Summer is just around the corner, and so many of us are trying to lose excess weight we put on during the pandemic. Your first plan of attack may be to cut out carbohydrates as much as possible, but a recent study suggests that going low-carb may not be entirely necessary for significant weight loss.
I’ve bumped my head a number of times and never really thought much about it, but the recent passing of actor, comedian and one of America’s favorite television dads Bob Saget got my attention and made me realize we all might want to be more careful.
If the line between “work time” and “personal time” was getting blurry before the pandemic, it’s now safe to say that for many people that line has now disappeared. This is not very surprising given that 71 percent of us are now working from home (WFH) and more than half want to continue doing so after employers fully open their offices.
While aerobic exercise may indeed burn off more calories per workout, the real secret to reducing your body fat over the long term is resistance training.
We all get tired feel drowsy at times. These feelings are normal parts of our innate daily circadian rhythm. We know when we need to rest and when it’s time to get some shuteye, whether it’s a good night’s sleep or a nap, after which most of us feel refreshed and ready to go. But for people suffering with fatigue, feeling sluggish, lethargic, weary and tired throughout the day for no apparent reason – even after sleep – is the norm.
Sweating is one of those things that we probably don’t think much about unless we perspire so much that it begins to affect our quality of life. Or unless we notice our body’s unique odor gets us unapproving looks in business meetings or social situations.
