1. Stand up at least once every 30 minutes Standing up increases the pressure in your circulatory system, and this helps to reinforce the pressure of this system. Small changes in blood pressure are a way to stimulate cardiac (heart) muscle and arterial walls, as well as the valves responsible for maintaining blood flow.
Having reduced pressure in the circulatory system can lead to cardiovascular problems, such as shortness of breath when walking or other moderate activities. It can also lead …

New Studies Show ReDox Secret To Rejuvenation One of the observable truths found in cells is that they are constantly at battle with free radicals to maintain the homeostasis of the cell. When cells need energy, they break down glucose we get from our food to get protons to replenish ATP in cells for energy to provide for normal cell functions, such as contracting muscles or building DNA for new cells. The protons released from the breakdown of glucose increase the acidity level of the cell unless it is wrapped up by either Pyruvate or NAD+. NAD+ does a ton of work buffering the cell to keep it neutral and not break down from the "free-radical" protons created from the breakdown of glucose from energy. NAD+ Levels Decline With Age Normal cell levels of buffers are not made by our bodies, but are produced from B vitamins in our diet. The levels in our bodies tend to decline with age due to inefficiencies in the breakdown of vitamin B with aging. Less NAD+ means more cells fa…

3 Simple Exercises To Improve Your Health

In a recent study of older adults, walking at least 3 miles per hour correlated to better heart health and lower rates of coronary disease. The speed correlates to walking half a mile in 10 minutes, with the exertion equaling about a 40-60% heart rate usage during the trial. Those walking the same distance at a slower pace, or walking at the same rate for a shorter distance, were not found to have any significant improvement in their health.
In a similar study conducted with sedentary adults, improvements in health were reported with as little as two minutes of walking every hour. This study didn't adjust for any other criteria other than to not be completely sedentary. Those who change their totally sedentary ways reported reductions in other issues such as neck and back issues related to prolonged periods of sitting combined with poor posture.

A third study, conducted a few years ago, had reviewed the benefits of a quick run and it's overall health effects. The study conclud…

What is preventing my weight loss?

A common issue facing many exercisers is that, even after having committed to a regimen of nutrition and exercise, the goals of weight loss and muscle gain just aren't lining up. You'll ask "why am I not losing weight?" and the answers seem elusive. If you have a wellness coach or a trainer whom can coach you, then talk to him or her about the issue. Just remember that this process is challenging and it's not your fault if its not working immediately.
Here's a few possible things to consider:

Adjust the meal planning - your meals may be leaving you hungry, and that's a recipe for disaster. Review your meal plan with your coach to see if there's adequate protein, fat, or hydration in your planExercising too often or too hard - completing a challenging routine may make you feel accomplished, but if your metabolic rate is getting too high, then your body will signal the need to consume more food for energy. Start with monitoring your heart rate to stay in…
