In this post I am discussing how I will tie the various articles on this site together. When I say together I mean how I used or considered the various supplements, exercise regimens, alternative medicine techniques etc. in my lifestyle regimen. To discuss this I will have to use a timeline of my life beginning in the late 1980’s when I was in my 30’s.

If you find yourself forgetful, or even sluggish, talk to your doctor and consider if Vitamin D would be right for you. Similar to fish oil, this supplement is going to protect your heart to keep it healthy and strong. This is a bonus if heart disease runs in your family.

Personal preference has dictated nutritional choices throughout contemporary history. Ever since people gained access to enough food to move beyond subsistence nutrition, they have based their dietary decisions mainly on taste and general health trends. Yet a growing body of evidence shows there is no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition. Our responses to different nutrients are unique, and by recognizing and monitoring this we can potentially extend our healthy life expectancy.
As men age, one of their primary concerns is their prostate. An enlarged prostate, known medically as benign prostate hyperplasia, can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms, including incontinence, painful urination, and an increased risk of urinary tract infections. The National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Clearinghouse has reported that over half of all men between the ages of sixty and seventy years of age suffer from this condition. Saw palmetto, a plant extract, is useful in improving these symptoms. Saw palmetto is available over the counter, with no side effects other than the occasional upset stomach. Small price to pay for relief.
One benefit of ZMA is that it can provide deeper levels of REM sleep, and deeper sleep provides for enhanced muscle repair and growth. Not to mention the rest and relaxation needed to provide a fresh start for the next day’s workout.
Horny goat weed is primarily used to treat sexually related conditions. Legend says that this application was discovered hundreds of years ago by a goatherd in China, who couldn’t help but notice the rather randy behavior of his herd after they had been grazing in a field full of the plant. In 2008, a study found that the plant counters restricted blood flow to the penis, and is thus effective against erectile dysfunction.
NAC works by helping to decrease inflammation and it has been used for a number of chronic conditions. One of the most common conditions where NAC is used is in the treatment of arthritis. The condition can be very painful and if the joint does not heal, then this condition can lead to a lot of discomfort.
What I enjoy best about my smoothies is how much energy I get from them. I usually combine 2-3 fruits and vegetables per smoothie, sometimes fixing it at night and having it for the morning. I usually choose powerhouse fruits such as strawberries, bananas and blueberries. Adding in raspberries and blackberries just makes it taste twice as good. Before you add anything to your juicer or blender, however, always wash your food. This ensures that you get most of the pesticides off your food before you consume it.
