How To Recover From Sore Muscles


Everyone gets sore muscles from time to time. Whether you’re a competitive athlete, a weekend warrior or just simply amble about — at some point you want to know how to recover from sore muscles!

Sore muscles are a frequent side effect for people who participate in athletic competition and train regularly. They often face two big post-performance problems: sore, achy muscles and swollen, stiff joints. Beyond the pain and discomfort, sore muscles and achy joints can interfere with the next training session and make everyday activities a struggle. In time, they can lead to chronic aches and pains.

The typical advice given to recover from sore muscles is to cool down after a workout, get a massage, and use heating pads and ice packs. Some innovative approaches include eating mushrooms for their anti-inflammatory properties that may be effective in reducing some muscle soreness.

Yes, reducing inflammation is the key in muscle and joint recovery, but there are two supplements far more effective at doing that than mushrooms: Curcumin and Pomegranate; particularly, the fusion of two very special forms of these compounds…

How Hydroxytyrosol Protects Against Heart Disease and Other Ailments


Perhaps you’ve never heard of it, but you have experienced hydroxytyrosol, because it’s in the fruit and leaf of the olive, and is the main phenolic compounds of olive oil. And that’s a good thing, given that hydroxytyrosol protects against cardiovascular diseases and cancer.

This is the finding of a very thorough 2014 study on hydroxytyrosol led by Cristina Vilaplana-Pérez PhD. The study also examined hydroxytyrosol’s potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, and the ability of hydroxytyrosol to protect against low-density lipoproteins (LDL, the so-called bad” cholesterol) [1] .

Let’s take a look at how hydroxytyrosol protects you from some of the most common and feared chronic diseases, and what food and supplements contain it.

Ten Remarkable Health Benefits of Melatonin


You may think that the benefits of melatonin only have to do with helping you to sleep. Although it’s true that melatonin can encourage sleep and improve its quality, realize that sleeping better has a cascade effect that can improve your overall health. Regular, restorative sleep is essential to reduce stress, improve our immune defenses, fight cardiovascular disease and much more., the supplement research website, reports the many benefits of melatonin, including general neuroprotective effects from the powerful antioxidants contained in melatonin. It also has several anti-cancer properties, says, and is currently being investigated for its role in fighting breast cancer. Moreover, though melatonin does not appear to have much of an effect on lean mass or body fat, it may stop your body from gaining more fat. Melatonin supplementation also benefits eye health, possibly reduces tinnitus, and improve mood.

There are many melatonin brands you can pick from, and they come in various forms. You can get tablets or capsules that you swallow, sublingual tablets you let dissolve under your tongue, and a relatively new delivery method – a liposomal spray.

The Energy-boosting NAD Supplement You Need For Vital Health


The research results keep pouring in that attest to the anti-aging benefits of a NAD supplement that helps your cells produce more energy, and delay the detrimental effects of aging. The latest is a study published on June 13th in the journal Cell Metabolism, which has identified a novel approach to boosting a certain protein enzyme that helps cells make energy.

I’m going to tell you about this research in a moment, but first I’ll tell you right up front that the NAD supplement that conferred certain anti-aging benefits is NNM, short for Nicotinamide Mononucleotide, a derivative of niacin.

NAD is also an acronym, which stands for Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, a molecule found in every cell in the body. NAD is used to power metabolism by enabling the mitochondria – the ‘power stations’ of the cell –  to convert the food we eat into the energy our body needs to sustain all its functions. As reported on ProHealth Longevity, restoring NAD levels to youthful levels with NMN supplementation can reverse many of the symptoms of chronic disease and aging and maintain cellular energy at youthful levels.

Bulletproof Your Mitochondria Function With MitoQ


All living things are made up of cells, the smallest structural and functional unit of an organism. And all cells are powered by an organelle inside them called mitochondria, the so-called “energy factory”.

Without functional mitochondria you would die within a few minutes, says David Wynick, Professor of Molecular Medicine at the University of Bristol. This is because these free-floating, bean-shaped organelles that live in almost every cell of our body generate more than 90% of the energy needed by our bodies to sustain life and promote growth.

I’m going to tell you more about how essential robust mitochondria function is to your health and vitality – especially if you seek to extend your healthspan – but first let’s get right to the point of this article…

7 Phosphatidylcholine Benefits That Can Improve Your Long-term Health


Before pinpointing how phosphatidylcholine benefits your long-term health, I want to express the importance of finding solutions to health care issues that go to the root of any particular problem. One of the greatest frustrations we experience from our healthcare system is the focus on treating symptoms instead of causes.

If you’re diagnosed you with high blood sugar, instead of working with you to reduce body weight and eat fewer processed carbs, your doctor prescribes a drug that forces your liver to release less sugar into your blood and make your body respond better to insulin. Whatever caused the high blood sugar is not addressed.

If you’re diagnosed with high LDL cholesterol, instead of working with you to eat less saturated fat and dietary cholesterol, your doctor prescribes a drug that forces the liver to reduce its production of cholesterol. Whatever caused the high LDL is not addressed.

I’m not really blaming doctors. They don’t get paid to take the time to try to help patients reinvent their lifestyles. Typically, they get paid to diagnose and prescribe drugs to suppress the symptoms that without regard to whatever created them in the first place.

Where all this is leading it to the proposition that you’re a lot better off if you can find interventions that focus on the root causes that produced the unwanted symptoms. This applies to your nutritional supplements; namely, Phosphatidylcholine.

NMN Supplements Review: Which Brand Is Best For You


With so many NMN supplement brands being created to meet the demand for this potent NAD+ precursor, I thought it was high time to collect some data and create an “NMN Supplements Review” that compares different brands for dosage, purity and price.

Go straight to the NMN Supplements Review »

Over the past few years, research on NAD+ and its precursors, NMN and NR, have given longevity scientists hope that an effective cellular rejuvenator had been discovered. To give you an appreciation for why these scientists are so optimistic, I will:

  • Briefly review the science;
  • Speak to why we need to keep NAD+ levels up as we age, particularly via NMN; and
  • List NMN supplement brands are available to you.

NAD+, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a coenzyme found in all living cells. Two critical functions enabled by NAD+ make life possible…

Nine Ashwagandha Health Benefits for A Long and Healthy Life


Yes, it’s hard to pronounce, and I still must check my spelling when I type “Ashwagandha”, but surely this is one herb you’ll want to know about and try out, because there are at least nine Ashwagandha health benefits that can improve your health and help you in your quest to live a long and healthy life.

Whether you’re stressed, need a testosterone boost, want to better control your blood sugar or cholesterol, or reduce inflammation – Ashwagandha just might be the best single herb you can consume, particularly the KSM-66® enhanced version.

Some Ashwagandha Background

In Sanskrit, Ashwagandha means “the smell of a horse,” but it doesn’t, not to my nose. The horse reference was used because in traditional cultures the herb was thought to impart the vigor and strength of a stallion, and it has thus been traditionally prescribed to help people strengthen their immune system after an illness.

Ashwagandha belongs to the same family as the tomato, the “nightshades”. It’s a plump shrub with oval leaves and yellow flowers that produce a red fruit about the size of a raisin. The herb is native to the dry regions of India, northern Africa, and the Middle East, but today is also grown in mild climates, including in the United States. When growing in the ground, Ashwagandha (also called “Withania Somnifera”) looks like this…

7 Big Reasons Your Body Needs Liposomal Glutathione for Long-term Health


If you’re over 30 years old and had to choose just one supplement to take, it would be wise to consider liposomal glutathione. Glutathione is one of the best all-around supplements to keep up with the biochemical stress of being alive, and the liposomal form (or in some cases, the S-acetyl form) is the most bioavailable, as it enables your body to absorb what you take.

The reason glutathione should be a first-choice contender is because it’s the body’s main endogenous antioxidant. Often referred to as the “master detoxifier,” glutathione is responsible for excreting multiple metal toxins like mercury, different mold toxins pesticides, herbicides, petrochemicals and alcohol metabolites.

Your immune system depends on glutathione. When you run down on glutathione, which we all do as we age (see below), you lose the ability to effectively fight infections, oxidative stress, chronic inflammation and much more, as I’ll cover here in a moment.
