There’s no doubt about it, when our digestive health is compromised it can have a negative impact on our entire day. From feeling nauseous or irregular to bloated or gassy, our digestive tract’s health can make for a good or bad day.
But that’s not all, your digestive health also plays a vital role in whether or not your body is absorbing the essential nutrients it needs. There are numerous nutrients required for optimal health. It matters very little if we eat all the healthiest foods, when they are not able to be absorbed into our bodies that are in desperate need of these vitamins and minerals.

Towel Kicks are an excellent stabilization exercise. It challenges your core to keep an upright position and isolates your leg muscles to lift off the ground.
X-Y Core really targets the entire core since your legs and arms are extended out. Your core will work to stabilize your body, especially when your legs spread apart. When you spread your legs, that is working the outer thighs and glutes, which you will absolutely feel!
Testosterone is one of the major sex hormones which are usually secreted in males and observational studies have now concluded that levels begin to drop with advancing age.
If you are male past your fourth decade of life and have begun to experience symptoms such as increasing fatigue, lower sex drive or have begun to feel depressed then your physician will in all probability advice you to go for a testosterone study to exclude low testosterone levels.

If you’re like most people, you have already made New Year’s resolutions based around your personal health and fitness, following the holiday season of binge eating, drinking and generally being inactive. We throw around the term New Year’s resolution so frequently that we never stop to take note of what a resolution truly is. According to Oxford Dictionary, resolution is a firm decision to do or not to do something.
This doesn’t necessarily sound like a solid game plan for success if you ask me. After all, how many times did you say you were going to do something and you forget, or something else comes up? If we’re honest with ourselves, it probably happens on a weekly basis. For me it happens daily!
Just yesterday I told myself that I would inflate my tire when I got home because the low tire signal has been glaring at me for weeks now. When I walked through my door after work, I run through a couple tasks on my to do list, and before I know it I’m eating dinner, watching TV and ready for bed.
If this happens so frequently for easy things like having a machine blow air into a tire for me, why would I trust the big life plans I have to be left up to words merely floating in the air. Well lucky for me, I do specific things to make sure I am on track for important goals such as improving my health.
Besides changing my mentality from a New Year resolution to a New Day resolution as discussed here, I have compiled a list of tips to help you have the fittest and healthiest year of yet.
At the beginning of the year, it's customary to make resolutions in an effort to improve ourselves in some way throughout the year. Come the first of January, hope fills the air as we vow that we will change for the better.
It’s no secret that exercise and good nutrition are key factors in living a healthy life, fulfilled life. Exercise not only has physical benefits but also releases endorphins that make our mental state better too. However, with most people’s busy schedules and long work weeks, it sometimes seems impossible to fit in exercise.
For many, taking the time to exercise can either be a luxury or an added chore. But if you want to achieve optimal health and well-being, regular exercise is essential. Make it a priority and get motivated to do it. Follow these tips to help you in your quest for health and wellness.
You may not be where you want to be in terms of your progress. But keep in mind that progress, no matter how small it is, is still progress. You will keep moving forward and getting one small victory at a time until one day you can look back at your life and see the leaps and bounds you've made. So whether it's the first pound you lost or the first mile you have run in a very long time, consider that a success and keep moving forward!
We all face issues that we know we have to overcome in our life. Whether our hardship comes in the form of losing weight or quitting cigarettes, we tend to push it off for another day.
"I would, but..."
"One day I'll do something about it, but not right now."
"I have too much on my plate this time of year."
So today let's readjust our focus and confront what we want to conquer. If not, we'll keep ignoring it and making excuses.
You’ve probably heard the rage about Omega-3’s. Many proponents claim that it is vital to make any weight loss plan effective. Not only does this important fish oil help with weight loss, it also enhances concentration levels, elevates mood and gives your skin a boost. Your immune system also benefits from it and your energy levels rise. Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, chronic skin ailments and cardio-vascular ailments decrease too.
When we start working our way toward our goals, we often times have so much passion and energy. Unfortunately, that energy is hard to maintain and your passion may dwindle away.
If you're like me, coffee is more than a drink. It’s your daily pick me up when you’re in an energy slump. It’s your company during an all-nighter when you have to meet that important deadline. It’s your comfort during a cold morning.
Every day, like clockwork, I have my daily brew of extra dark roast coffee.
Black. No milk. No sugar. Just straight up coffee. Don’t worry you can think that’s crazy. There have been many people that this strikes as odd. I say that it’s not odd, it’s bold (like my coffee).
If you’re not a coffee drinker, you probably love its pleasant aroma that fills the room.
While coffee may be a great mood booster, it may be even better at protecting your health! Cheers! That’s something to drink to (we’re still talking about coffee, ok?). In this post, we talk about how drinking 2-4 cups of coffee per day positively impacts your health, and the ideal times to drink coffee. And no, it’s not when you first wake up! Stay with us to find out.
