  • How exercise rejuvenates cells, extending lifespan

    New research provides a window into how, on a cellular level, exercise can improve muscle health and, ultimately, exercise capacity, which is "the best predictor of mortality in the general population."

    new study published in the journal Nature Communications describes how exercise helps the body to keep the cells in the muscles healthy and strong.

    "Whether muscle is healthy or not really determines whether the entire body is healthy or not," says lead researcher Prof. Zhen Yan, of the University of Virginia School of Medicine in Charlottesville.

    "And exercise capacity, mainly determined by muscle size and function," he adds, "is the best predictor of mortality in the general population."

    The Benefits of Meditation: What Does the Science Say?

    The term meditation refers to a wide variety of practices that includes techniques designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy, heal or control illness or to simply contemplate or self-regulate the mind in some way. Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years as a component of numerous religions, traditions and beliefs. More recently however, its use has become more widespread as a way to help cope with the stresses of modern life, as an adjunct to medical practices or just as a general tool for self-improvement. While these thousands of years of meditative practice certainly have strong anecdotal weight behind them, modern science is now showing us that many of its purported effects indeed have measureable physiological and psychological benefits.

  • Busting that cholesterol and saturated fat myth

    Most people have grown up with the idea that foods such as meat and eggs raise the levels of cholesterol in our blood. This “fact” is so well known that most people do not dare question it. But is it even true? The idea that eating cholesterol and saturated fat directly raises blood cholesterol levels comes from research which is now almost 50 years old. However, more recent and better designed studies just don’t support it.

  • Powerful Antioxidant Skincare: MitoQ.

    There is an important factor that is a huge weapon when it comes to antiaging and that is antioxidants. Antioxidants are like the nutrients - think vitamins - that help protect and repair the damage to the skins tissue. Think of an apple and how it turns brown when exposed to the air. Well, a powerful antioxidant would prevent that from turning brown or turn it BACK to the original color. Sounds great right? I have been incorporating antioxidants into my skincare for a while now, and one powerful antioxidant that I have been testing is MitoQ. MitoQ is probably the most powerful Antioxidant Skincare that I've ever used because MitoQ is a breakthrough antioxidant. You see MitoQ protects mitochondria, our cellular batteries so it helps us fight free radicals and further than ever before - deep with our skin. That is right where we need it.

  • Are you running out of steam?

    The older we get, the more we notice our body just doesn’t function the way it used to. We get wrinkles in our skin and take longer to recover from injuries and illness. We also find it harder to maintain our bodyweight, and tests can often show our blood sugar and cholesterol levels creeping upwards. Perhaps one of the most telling signs however, is that we run out of steam faster. We just don’t have the energy reserves that we did when we were younger. With today’s hectic lifestyle, kids to look after and busy jobs to maintain, this can become an issue in which we always find ourselves playing catch up.

  • The Importance of Cellular Energy

    Cellular energy. It sounds modern, but it’s as old as life itself. And it’s the very foundation of good health. When we have great cellular energy levels, we think better, feel better, move better, look better and perform better. That’s because, at a very basic physical level, our cells are responsible for everything our bodies do. Healthier cells mean great vitality, mental clarity, weight management and physical performance. Bountiful cellular energy also offsets the aging process which is brought on by cell degeneration. In a manner of speaking, achieving optimum cellular energy is akin to having our own internal fountain of youth.

  • OXIDATIVE STRESS: WHAT IS IT AND WHAT DOES IT DO?

    When the mitochondria in our cells produce energy, they produce waste products called free radicals. It’s kind of like the exhaust produced by an engine. These free radicals are usually highly reactive oxygen compounds, and they can cause a lot of damage to our cells if they are not neutralised by special molecules called “antioxidants”. When the levels of antioxidants in our body are not high enough to counteract the damaging effect of free radicals, this is known as “Oxidative Stress”. Oxidative stress has been identified as either a cause or consequence of almost every known health condition! Oxidative stress is also thought to be a major contributor to the aging process itself, causing symptoms such as reduced energy levels, wrinkled skin, brittle bones and loss of fertility. Many, but not all, of the more serious health conditions caused by oxidative stress are most often seen in older people.
