Maintaining a Healthy Heart

October 03, 2014  |  Share

 

 

The heart has an essential role to play in keeping you alive, as it pumps oxygenated blood and nutrients to your vital organs and removes waste from your body, yet so many people take their heart’s health for granted.

The heart is a muscle that needs to be kept in good condition if your body is to continue to function for many years to come. If you are overweight, eat a poor diet, rarely exercise, lead a stressful life, drink too much and smoke; you are at greater risk of developing serious heart problems that could undermine your quality of life.

 

 

 

 

It is therefore worth looking at ways to improve your lifestyle in order to maintain a healthy heart. You don’t have to transform your entire life overnight; just taking small steps could benefit your heart. Clearly, if you’re overweight it is worth trying to lose a few pounds, since the heavier you are, the harder your heart has to work to pump blood around your body. In order to lose weight you have to make adjustments to your diet to reduce your calorie intake and incorporate exercise into your day to increase your calorie expenditure.

Of course, it is possible to be a healthy weight and still lead an unhealthy lifestyle. Even if you’re slim and have never struggled to control your weight, you may have picked up bad eating habits that could contribute to health problems later down the line. If you eat a lot of fast food, the chances are you will be consuming large quantities of salt and saturated fat, which can increase the likelihood that you will develop cardiovascular disease.

To improve your diet, you should really try to increase the amount of fibrous foods you eat, including foods such as oatmeal, whole grain bread and pasta and leafy green vegetables. You can still enjoy the occasional fast food meal, but if you want to maintain a healthy heart, junk food cannot form the basis of your diet.

 

 

As well as what you eat, it is also worth considering the impact of alcohol on your system, as binge drinking and drinking heavily over a long period of time can be detrimental to your health. However, it is worth noting that not all alcohol is bad for you. Studies have shown that those who drink red wine on a regular basis are at lower risk of developing heart disease. Red wine contains antioxidants, known as polyphenols, which could help to protect the lining of blood vessels in your heart. Resveratrol is one of the polyphenols that has gained attention for its potential to reduce ‘bad’ cholesterol and protect your heart’s health.

 

 

 

Unfortunately, you would have to drink a lot of wine to be able to appreciate the benefits and so it might be worth taking Resveratrol supplements instead. They will enable you to access the potential benefits associated with red wine without the risks associated with heavy drinking.

In order to keep your heart healthy, it is crucial that you do not overlook the role of exercise, as it can enable you to control your weight and also help your heart to become more efficient at pumping blood around your body. Plus, it increases ‘good’ cholesterol and lowers ‘bad’ cholesterol, thus reducing your risk of developing heart disease. 

 

It is well worth taking steps to look after your heart, because although you may seem to be in perfect condition at this moment in time, if you lead an unhealthy lifestyle it will eventually catch up with you. It is therefore better to be proactive right now, rather than waiting until you develop heart problems and have no choice but to change your way of living.

October 03, 2014  |  Share

 

As a new mom, one of your biggest challenges is losing the baby weight.  Medical experts say that the most important time to lose pregnancy weight is the six months following childbirth.  This time can often be the most difficult, as we all know how exhausting it is to care for a newborn. Making time to exercise and eat nutritiously is difficult when you have a newborn to care for, and sometimes your own health can fall low on the priority list. Ultimately, taking care of your body and health will help you be a better mom.  The extra pounds mean your body needs to expend more energy to move around, and requires more rest, something new moms typically don’t have an abundance of. Procrastinating makes it much more difficult to lose the excess pounds later.   Our Postnatal Fat Burner will help you lose weight quickly and, more importantly, safely.

 

 

Our Postnatal Fat Burner is the perfect solution to help new mothers shed those extra pounds and return to their pre-pregnancy weight. Not only will you feel better, but you will be a better care-giver for your new baby. Less body fat means more energy, which equates to a lower sleep requirement.

Those extra pounds can lead to high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc. Healthy mom = healthy baby.

  • Fenugreek

Fenugreek is one of the world’s oldest medicinal herbs.  Among its many uses is the ability maintain healthy blood sugar and to promote lactation, which is necessary for new moms who may be breast-feeding.

  • Green Tea

Green tea is a natural thermogenic, which means that it is used to increase the heat in the body, which increases the body’s metabolism and its ability to burn fat.  Green tea can also lower cholesterol, and has the potential to fight cancer and heart disease.  

  • L-Carnitine

L-Carnitine is also a thermogenic; it is used for fat-burning, increasing energy, and can reduce feelings of hunger.  L-Carnitine is also beneficial for breast-feeding. 

  •  CLA

Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a naturally occurring free fatty acid that is found in dairy and meat products.  CLA metabolizes stored fats.  

  • Glucomannan

Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fiber and appetite suppressant.  It can also lower cholesterol. 

           

            We understand that your new baby is now the most important thing in your life.  But that doesn’t mean you should neglect yourself, either.  By feeling your best, you will be happier, healthier, and ready to handle the tasks of motherhood.  There is no risk to trying the Post-Natal Fat Burner and your satisfaction is guaranteed.  Now there is no excuse for losing that excess weight and being fitter and healthier.  Let Post-Natal Fat Burner transform your body and life today!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How Green Tea Supplements Can Aid Weight Loss

September 16, 2014  |  Share

 

There is a lot of evidence that suggests green tea does facilitate weight loss, which is a good reason to consider taking a green tea supplement if you’re trying to lose weight.

 


 

 

Although you cannot rely on green tea supplements alone in your quest to lose weight, taking a supplement could help to speed up your metabolism, increase your body’s ability to burn fat and act as an appetite suppressant. Clearly, these properties are useful when you’re trying to lose weight, but only if you also make changes to your eating and exercise habits as well. Green tea supplements may help you to lose weight, but they are not a miracle cure.

In order to lose weight, you have to address your diet, reducing your calorie intake so that you consume fewer calories than you burn. Plus, getting more active will increase your calorie expenditure and thus speed up weight loss. Drinking green tea could also help, since it contains caffeine, which increases thermogenesis – the process whereby calories are burned. As you lose weight, your metabolism can sometimes slow down, but green tea may prevent this, so that your body continues to burn calories at the same level as when you were at your heaviest. Plus, the antioxidants found in green tea that are known as catechins may also increase your metabolic rate.

 

 

It isn’t always feasible to drink green tea throughout the day and, even though green tea contains less caffeine than black tea, if you consume more than five cups daily you could experience some caffeine-induced side effects. These include headaches, difficulty sleeping, nervousness and an irregular heartbeat, which why so many people who want to obtain the benefits of green tea without the potential risks choose to take supplements instead. By taking a supplement, you should still be able to notice that you’re not as hungry and that your progress when losing weight is more consistent than if you were not taking anything.

 

There are other health benefits associated with drinking green tea or taking supplements, aside from losing weight. By consuming green tea regularly, you could reduce your risk of developing a number of different types of cancer; you could lower your cholesterol levels, while improving the ratio of good cholesterol (HDL) to bad cholesterol (LDL); your risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis could be reduced, as could your chances of developing cardiovascular disease; plus your immune function should improve, helping your body to stave off cold and flu.

After nine long months, your little one is finally here! Like many new moms, if you're breastfeeding then you may feel as though you can't always produce as much milk as your little one needs.

The Best Time of The Day To Exercise

August 12, 2014  |  Share

Exercise is an essential part of maintaining a healthy mind and healthy body. Yet, it is something that people often neglect to make room for in their daily schedule because other things tend to take priority. This is despite the fact that the benefits of exercise far outweigh the time it takes to expend energy. People ought to incorporate exercise into their lifestyles wherever and whenever they can. When exercise becomes a habit it is much easier to motivate yourself to get going in the first place.

 

 

The best time of day to exercise is at a time most convenient to you, when you don't feel overwhelmed by other pressures and time constraints. Exercise has the same general health benefits at whatever time of day you engage in it. What usually determines a person's commitment to exercise, however, is consistency and continuity, which is why people often find exercising in the morning the most convenient time.

 

Often people choose to wake up earlier to go for a morning jog, so that they don't lose any time in the day and actually gain some. Exercising in the morning raises your heart rate and metabolism, thus burning calories earlier in the day, while exercise can also sharpen your mental state and leave you feeling energized. There are also benefits of exercising in the morning during summer when temperatures are lower than at mid-day.

 

 

 

Exercising regularly in the morning means that your body gets used to the routine, and so it becomes easier to exercise every day or every other day. Your body learns to adapt to your exercise regime and learns when it needs to burn calories and when it needs to conserve them, helping to produce a more efficient calorie-burning body. The same could be said of doing exercise at any other time during the day, but people often find themselves putting off exercise as other things crop up, and so it is harder to get into a routine and to make exercise a regular feature of their lifestyle.

It also best for most people not to exercise late at night, just before going to bed, because exercise raises your heart rate and makes you feel more energised, which can make it difficult to get to sleep. However, if a routine is established it becomes much easier for the body to adapt to a new systematic approach to exercise.

Exercise is good for you no matter when you do it, but it is something that needs to be done on a regular basis in order to have long-term positive effects. Thus, a routine needs to be established so that you can incorporate exercise into your lifestyle and stop making excuses about why you can’t exercise.
