Anti Aging Digestion Enzymes Are Essential For Life

Anti Aging Digestion Enzymes Are Essential For Life
by: Jennifer Kays



Digestive enzymes are the most essential nutritional requirements that our bodies need to stay alive. Enzymes break down the nutrients that we eat and reduces them to a size and condition that make them able to be carried, absorbed and used by our bodies. Enzymes are necessary for breathing, swallowing, muscles movement, cell and tissue production, and energy conversion. Enzymes are responsible for metabolism, which is our cells directing each nutrient to combine and interact with other nutrients to crate other chemicals and compounds to build and repair our cells, bones, tissues and organs. Enzymes are responsible for constructing, synthesizing, delivering, distributing and eliminating the substances and chemicals our body requires to live. Without enzymes, metabolism does not happen.

Our very lives depend on enzymes and digestion. Many, health issues begin with lack of proper enzymes and digestion. Without the proper amount of digestion enzymes in our bodies, we are vulnerable to ill health conditions such as respiratory infection, colds, flu, high blood pressure, liver disease, indigestion, heartburn, diabetes, fibromyalgia, candida, migraines, PMS, hyperactivity, anxiety, lack of concentration, depression, weakened immune system, acid reflux, constipation, gas and many other health concerns. It was once thought that illness and aging depleted the amount of enzymes found in our body. We now know that illness and aging are caused by a depletion of enzymes in our body. Many researchers now know that the aging process and even death is a result of our enzyme levels being decreased to the point where the very living environment of our bodies can no longer be maintained.

We now know that we lose digestive enzymes through sweat and body waste. As we go age, the organs that are responsible for producing digestive enzymes are not able to efficiently produce the amount we need in the time we need them. We know that cooking and microwaves destroy the enzymes that our food contain when they are raw. Factors such as environmental pollution, overly processed and fast foods, genetically modified foods and other factors deplete the amount of enzymes that we need to live. These factors deplete our enzyme levels stresses our digestive system and our immune system, leave us feeling tired, depressed, without energy or interest, and, very possibly, shorten our lives.

Given these factors of aging, processed foods, and cooking, our bodies are not able to produce the enzymes that we need. Therefore it would be wise for us to supplement our diets with enzymes from outside sources such as plants. If we add an enzyme supplement from external sources to our diet when we eat a meal we will greatly increase the quality and longevity of our lives. Enzyme supplements increase the amount of nutrients we absorb from our diet and improves our overall nutrition, decreases or eliminates indigestion and acid reflux, reduces fatigue and increases our energy, strengthens our immune system and enhances the regeneration of our cells and tissues.

We can take advantage of enzyme supplements that are blends of enzymes that each have a specific function. Amylase changes complex sugars and carbohydrates into usable glycogen and dextrin. Bromelain breaks down proteins making them available for our bodies energy supply. Cellulase is an enzyme complex that breaks down cellulose into usable beta-glucose. Lactase converts lactose into galactose and glucose. Lipase is an enzyme that is vital for the absorption and digestion of nutrients in the intestines and catalyzes triglycerides into fatty acids. Pancreatin hydolyses fats, converts protein into protesoses and changes starches into dextrins and usable sugars. Papain from the papaya fruit converts proteins to form oligopeptides and amino acids and can digest dead tissue without affecting live tissue. Pepsin breaks down protein into peptides. Chymotrypsin works in our small intestine to hydrolyze the peptide bond of amino acids. Trypsin breaks down the peptide bond of the amino acids arginine and lysine and is important in protein digestion.

With our current concerns about health care for issues such as those caused by obesity, excess weight, high blood pressure, heart health, etc, it would be well for us to remember the extreme importance of nutrition and good digestion and metabolism and that a very significant number of illnesses and diseases start in the intestine and colon. Our realizing the vital importance of digestion enzymes and the role they have in maintaining our very lives as well as preventing some of the serious, sometimes life threatening, health issues we face and will greatly improve the quality and longevity of our lives.

Best Exercises For Pear Shaped Women

Best Exercises For Pear Shaped Women
by: Lydia De Leon



Being a pear shaped woman myself, I know the struggles involved in trying to achieve a lean and sleek pair of legs. There are a few things I have learned about how to exercise effectively for maximum fat loss in the lower region and balancing out our physiques.

For starters, there are a few things we must accept so that we won't beat ourselves up with frustration.

1. Accept the fact that you have a pear shape - we carry most of our body fat in the lower half of our bodies (hips, thighs and butt).

2. Consider the fat on your lower region as fat magnets. In other words, it is very easy to attract fat to the thighs, hips and buttocks and very difficult to move (not impossible though!)

3. Accept the fact that you will have to work extra hard to lean out the lower half of your body.

If you can accept the above, then you'll be armed with a more realistic mindset when working out and trying to lose fat. You'll be able to be patient with yourself and won't give up.

Now the good news!

1. It IS possible to lean out the hips, thighs and buttock areas.
2. It IS possible to achieve a great pair of legs.
3. You can balance out your upper body so that you are well proportioned and symmetrical.

So how do we go about leaning out our lower bodies and balancing out our upper bodies?

First, you will have to eat very clean and watch your fat intake.
Stick with fruits, veggies, tuna, tilapia, chicken, lean meats and egg whites.
Eat more of the green types of veggies and lots of salads.
Eat starchy veggies (potatoes, rice, pastas etc...) in moderation.
Drink lots of water.

When eating fruits, try to eat them in the morning, before your workouts.
Try not to eat fruits after 2pm.
Best fruits: all kinds of berries, grapefruit, apples.
Best veggies: brocolli, green beans, asparagus, green, onions, garlic, red, yellow, orange peppers, spinach, cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce.

Rules:
Never fry your food.
Grill, boil, steam, bake or pan fry with Pam Spray, never in a pan of oil.
If you're going to have a cheat day, make sure do it early enough so you can burn it off.
Never have a cheat day at night.
Try (if you can!) to only cheat twice a month.
What is a cheat day: ONE cheat meal only! Not a whole day of cheating!

Did I say drink lots and lots of water too?

Ok, so now if you eat this way, you will start noticing yourself getting leaner. You'll be shedding some fat off of your overall body. Yes, your lower body too! Your pants and skirts won't fit anymore. So you'll have to buy a new wardrobe!

But this is not the whole story. In order to create those great lean legs, you will have to exercise differently than your friends and those women in the magazines.

We want to lean out our lower halves and build up our upper halves.

We have special needs, so we must exercise specifically, to meet this need.

>From my experience, pear shaped women need to focus on light to moderate weights with very high volume repetitions in the lower half of their bodies, incorporating lots of cardio workouts too.

The upper half of our bodies need a different plan all together.

To get that symetrical and balanced look, we need to lift heavy weights so that we are widening our shoulders and backs and creating those sexy arms. Don't fear lifting heavy. We will never get big. And if it's any comfort to you (or maybe not!), our bodies are the most difficult of all body types to gain muscle.

I know, I know, but we can still get that lean, defined, sexy and well proportioned body we're seeking.

So this is the plan I use and seems to be working very well. Yes, I am seeing RESULTS. It will take time, but if you are completely determined, patient and focused on your goal, you will achieve that sexy, well proportioned and symetrical body that screams out, "WOW"!

Here's the work out plan that I am currently using:
Lower body 3 times per week.
Upper body twice per week.
Cardio 6 times per week.

Lower body workout:
Incorporate a variety of leg excersizes such as lunges, squats, butt blaster, leg presses, leg extensions, hip excersizes, leg extensions and hamstring curls.
You can choose 3 - 4 excersizes three times per week.

Example:
Day 1: squats, lunges, leg presses, calves cardio
Five sets each of 35 + repetitions with moderate weight
Rest 30 - 45 seconds between sets

Day 2: leg extensions, hamstring curls, butt blaster
Five sets each of 35 + repetitions with moderate weight
Rest 30 - 45 seconds between sets

Day 3: walking lunges, side walking lunges, steady lunges
Five sets each of 35 + repetitions with moderate weight
Rest 30 - 45 seconds between sets

Don't worry about the sets and reps in the beginning. Do as many as you can. If you can do more than 35, do more.

Cardio: jogging, treadmill, elliptical machine, jumping rope, swimming, cycling, aerobic classes etc... Just make sure you are working out intense enough to really burn the fat.

Upper Body Workout:
I exercize my upper body twice per week:
Full upper body workout: chest, back, shoulders, tri's and bi's, calves
Abs 4 times per week.

I choose 2 - 3 exercizes per body part.
3 sets each for 8 - 10 reps.
Weight is heavy.
Rest about 60 seconds in between sets.

That's it. I do cardio 6 times per week. Upper body twice per week. Lower body three times per week. Abs 4 times per week, calves 3 - 4 times per week.

I find that this intense workout PLUS eating a CLEAN diet, very effective in leaning out the lower half of our bodies plus balancing out our upper halves.

Make sure you get lots of rest too!

Just one pear shape sister to another......

God Bless You!

Beauty Basics Tips

Beauty Basics Tips
by: R. L. Fielding

Despite the media coverage of makeover reality shows, the majority of Americans are not looking for extreme transformations. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, most of us want to look better, naturally, with 68-percent preferring a subtle change. And experts agree that looking your best could be accomplished at home for considerably less.

Dr. Linda Franks, a leader in the specialized skin care frontier, says “To get that timeless, healthy look you need to start with an appropriate skincare regime. Taking good care of your skin can stave off fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and even dry skin.”

Doctors say whatever your skin type, the key is to cleanse it gently.
oAvoid hot water and use lukewarm instead, to prevent over-drying.
oAnd throw in the towel – traditional washcloths are too abrasive for the face, so use your hands and fingers.

Sixty-eight-percent of women claim to have sensitive skin which means dry, tight, chapped or easily irritated skin.
oMoisturize regularly.
oAvoid harsh cleansers with ingredients such as fragrances, dyes and preservatives because sensitive skin is easily damaged and takes longer to recover.

If your skin is dry and easily irritated, don’t wash more than once a day. You may risk stripping the skin of its natural oils.
oLook for non-irritating cleansing washes that are soap-free.
oUse light, oil-free, water-based moisturizers to help maintain the skin’s natural barrier.
oMake sure to choose a facial moisturizer with an SPF of at least 15, which protects against both UVB and UVA rays.

Skin sensitivity may also result from the third most common, non-surgical skincare procedure known as Microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a quick and easy, non-invasive procedure that helps to reveal healthier-looking skin by sweeping away dead skin cells.
oDr. Franks reveals that, following the treatment, the best way to avoid irritation is by opting for an ultra-gentle cleanser and moisturizer.
oA new clinical study shows that PURPOSE gentle cleansing wash and dual treatment moisture lotion with spf 15 are compatible with this procedure.

How else can you obtain optimal skin health? Dr. Franks says, “Exercise opens up blood vessels to make skin look healthy and youthful. It’s so important for healthy skin.”
oRegular cardiovascular exercise increases blood flow to the skin which assists in collagen production.
oMaintaining muscle mass through exercise can also help anchor and support skin, keeping it taut.
oAnd drink up! At least eight, eight-ounce glasses of water a day are crucial for optimal skin hydration.

So before you sign on for an extreme and expensive makeover, just think back on some simple, beauty basics! You just might like what you see!

Feel Good Naked - Natural Beauty Secrets

Feel Good Naked - Natural Beauty Secrets
by: Elaine Woosey


How confident are you when it comes to being naked? Sadly, a lot of women agonise about their bodies and revealing all can be a traumatic experience. If you are looking for tips, tricks and beauty secrets to help you make the most of your natural beauty and feel good naked, you've come to the right place.

Number one of all the beauty secrets is this, if you want to feel good naked you must be happy in your own skin.

To help you achieve this, look after your skin to bring out its natural beauty. Exfoliate regularly to remove dead skin cells and give your circulation a boost, this will encourage new skin cells at the same time. Encouraging new skin cells will give your skin a younger, fresher look.

Always moisturise using a good moisturiser and pay special attention to dry areas such as elbows, knees and feet. Take your time and massage the moisturiser right into your skin. Massaging not only helps your circulation it also helps to smooth out bumps and wrinkles and will enhance your natural beauty. Olive oil, an old-fashioned beauty secret, will give your skin a luxurious look as well as making it soft and supple to touch. As the surface of your skin improves and you get to know your body better you will begin to feel good naked.

Remove unsightly hairs from your legs, under your arms and tidy up your bikini line, or go the whole hog and go for a Brazilian wax.

You probably already know that eating a balanced diet to maintain healthy skin from the inside will benefit your natural beauty. Oily fish and vegetables will do wonders for your nails, hair and teeth as well as providing fish oils and vitamins for your skin and is a beauty secret worth knowing.

Your hair is your crowning glory especially if you want to feel good naked, have it trimmed regularly and keep it clean, well conditioned and healthy.

A quick fix beauty secret to feel good naked is to decide which your best asset is and show it off to the best advantage. Stand naked in front of a tall mirror and take a good, long look at yourself.

Standing straight on is not always the best pose, experiment by turning slowly and watching how your contours change. Standing side on can be a lot more flattering and compliment your natural beauty. Stand up straight and lift your sternum (breastbone) arch your back slightly so that your bottom sticks out a little bit but not too much.

You can make yourself look slimmer by stretching your body into a bow shape and being careful not to stoop or scrunch yourself up. Or stand slightly side on to the mirror placing one leg in front of the other; this will give you a very sexy shapely outline indeed.

Or try lying on your stomach propped up by your elbows, this accentuates the curve of your back and the shape of your breasts and at the same time minimises your stomach.

The idea behind the above beauty secrets is to create an illusion, flatter your natural beauty and help you to feel good naked.

A good tip is to spend as much time as you can actually being naked, this will get you used to seeing yourself naked and the more you see yourself naked, the more being naked will feel natural to you.

Remember to stand up straight and stretch your body to make yourself look slimmer. It also helps if you master the art of walking by placing one foot in front of the other, as though you are walking a tight rope, and swing your legs from the hips. I've found this looks extremely elegant and it will do wonders for your confidence.

Another good beauty secret is to go for soft lighting, such as candles, tea lights or softly coloured light bulbs if you haven't got a dimmer switch, and make sure the lighting is behind you. This not only has a slimming effect - it will also help to soften your outline and give you a sexy glow.

A soft glow rather than harsh lighting will give your skin an even tone and minimise the appearance of any blemishes.

One of the best beauty secrets I know is taking regular exercise to help keep your body toned and supple, a thirty-minute walk three times a week will pay many benefits. Walk at a speed that gets your heart rate up, this will oxygenate your blood and improve your skin, as well as your muscles and heart. Don't walk so fast that you can't have a conversation at the same time.

A toned and balanced body is extremely beautiful and will make you look and feel good naked, and you don’t need an hourglass figure to achieve this. Add quality to your movements with muscles that are long and toned and you will appear more balanced and beautiful.

Finally, the best way to feel good naked is to have confidence in yourself. If you don't feel it, fake it until you do. Get to know your own body and accept yourself for who you are and how you look.

We are all individuals and there are no set rules for everyone. Watch other women and notice how they move, what looks good and what doesn't. You can learn a lot by watching others.

Someone who is happy in her own skin and behaves in a confident manner is extremely attractive and sexy, regardless of her body shape.

How you feel about yourself is what really counts because this will show in your eyes and natural beauty will radiate from you.

Relax and enjoy yourself - love the way you look - if you do then others will too.
