Sorry, but Women DO Get More Wrinkles

According to the latest research from Europe, it has regrettably been proven that women do in fact get more wrinkles than men, especially around the mouth. Fortunately, there is much more that can be done than simply applying moisturizers to the skin. In my clinical practice, I recommend the use of HA (Hyaluronic acid) to support your body’s own natural internal moisturizer.

HA is found in higher amounts in babies and children, as we get older, our levels drop. I have found from my clinical experience that 1 to 2 HA capsules per day can make a noticeable difference and promote more youthful looking aging.

Furthermore, HA is needed for healthy joints, gums, cardiovascular system and even the eyes. Hyaluronic Acid

Frightening New Stats about Sitting too Much

In a recent study, individuals who sat a lot of the time and did not exercise or stay active had a very high mortality risk of 94 percent for women, and 48 percent for men! That’s right – 94 out of every 100 women, and 48 out of every 100 men. These are not good odds!

If you are spending most of your time sitting each day, the latest research says you are putting your health at jeopardy. Likewise, if you have an office job that ties you to your desk, it is time to get your body moving more often. These numbers should convince you to get up and get moving.

In the study, after adjusting for a number of risk factors, including body mass index (BMI) and smoking, women who spent six hours a day sitting had a 37 in 100 increased risk of dying versus those who spent less than three hours a day on their bottoms. For men, the increased risk was still 17 in 100.

Exercise, even a little per day, did tend to lower the mortality risk tied to sitting, the team noted. However, sitting’s influence on death risk remained significant even when activity was factored in.

It is also good for your circulation, by helping to mobilize and get rid of toxins that can collect like stagnant water in a pond which then creates a breeding ground for disease. So please – for your own sake, get up and move your body – every day!

In Addition to Being Vital for Stress, Your Colon Needs Vitamin B Too !

I tell all my patients that a good B complex vitamin is essential to help with stress, because when the body is stressed, there is greater demand for B vitamins. I always recommend B complex, because the B vitamins work together in your body to fuel brain chemistry, adrenal glands and multiple energy pathways in the body. It is said that B6 alone is needed for at least 50 different enzyme pathways.

Now researchers have something else exciting to share. Vitamin B6, found in a good B complex, can help protect your colon upwards of 48 percent according to the study reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Of course a diet high in fiber, fresh fruits and vegetables, avoiding constipation and smoking are all also very important.
