Resveratrol: Wait What’s Resveratrol?

Posted by Saito on February 23, 2009

Grapes full of Resveratrol

Resveratrol is a special nutrient that is normally found in red grapes. Grapes use Resveratrol to heal a bruise or a burn from the sun anything that damages the grape, it uses it so it may return back to normal form and shape.

Q & A

Ok great well it helps the grapes…but what has this to do with me and my health?

Well not only is Resveratrol found in grapes but it’s also found in animals. When an animal is starving, near death, Resveratrol is released throughout the animals body; Resveratrol keeps the animal from catching deadly diseases till it finds the proper food source. It keeps the animal alive! This also pertains to us, if we take Resveratrol as a supplement it will protect us from diseases-protecting us from every disease as a matter of fact!

Ok that’s cool, but is that all it can do for me?

No, that was just the beginning; there is so much more it can do. Resveratrol tricks your body into making every possible move to preserve your body as you get older, it boosts your defenses (protecting you from disease) and keeps you in top physical condition. In order for Resveratrol to work at it’s best you need a good diet; eating balanced meals and such. As I said before, it preserves your body as you get older and it helps you live healthier, longer. It also helps your brain-it keeps your mind clear and focused.

Wow, where can I get this and how do I take Resveratrol?

I suggest you take it in veggie capsule form:

Click the following link and you can get Resveratrol in veggie capsule form. It’s recommended that you take two a day, one in the morning and one at night: Eresveratrol.com

I’ve been taking Resveratrol for several months now and I’m enjoying it’s benefits, you know my mind is clear and focused :D. I enjoy it, my mind does not feel cluttered as it use to…how cool is that :D!! Now my mom is taking Resveratrol, and she is also enjoying its bountiful benefits!! She says it has helped her with her memory and her mind is clearer then it has been in a long while 😀

Well that’s all for now, stay tuned for the next update 😀

These are basic workout routines when starting out with weights. Depending on your size and girth with weights only choose the amount of weight you can handle. Start out with lighter weights then move up as your muscles get used to the strain. With every workout you do, even ones without weights do at least three sets. Each set you do try doing at least fifteen reps. If you can, use a back brace when you workout so you’re back is supported.

Well that’s all for the first part, stay tuned for the next update 😀

Wait what? It can benefit your health? I’ve heard so many rumors, what exactly can you benefit from it?

1. Dark Chocolate contains Phenyl Ethylamine, a mild mood elevator.

2. Having a cup of Hot Chocolate can reduce your appetite (sweet!)

3. Guys who consume Dark Chocolate are said to live an entire year longer then guys who don’t eat Dark Chocolate…(wow I’ll live one whole year longer…)

4. Dark Chocolate increases the amount of antioxidants in you’re blood!

5. The carbs in Dark Chocolate can raise your serotonin levels, it gives you a sense of well-being 😀

Ok now for the rumors, can you clear up some things said about Dark Chocolate? Like it might cause acne?

Stay Away From STRESS: Part 2

Posted by Saito on February 4, 2009

Alright then, time for part 2! This time lets talk about a machine called the Chi Machine!

The Chi Machine

K the Chi Machine looks incredibly weird I know, but it is one of the best ways of getting stress off of your shoulders! I use it when I feel overburdened and stressed, I feel so relaxed afterwords I sometimes don’t know what was stressing me out…

Q & A

What does the Chi Machine actually do?

The Chi Machine is an oxygenator, it cleanses your body of toxins that don’t belong in your body.

Ok so we know what it does, how do you use it?

The Chi Machine is easy to use, its light and portable (so beneficial that way too =D). You plug it into an outlet in your wall. Turn the Chi Machine opposite of the handle bar, lay down on the floor. Place your ankles in the two slots on top of the Chi Machine, lay perfectly straight with the Chi Machine. Then take the controller in your hand and turn the knob up to five minutes (just for starting out, don’t work your way up the amount of time too quickly, take it easy I really only Chi now for eleven minutes). As soon as you turn it on you will feel your ankles wiggle from side to side. You’re body will normally stiffen up when this occurs, just relax and let you’re body wiggle, its very important and the whole part of the Chi Machine effects. After the Chi Machine stops, stay still and lift you’re ankles off of the two slots. Stay that way for around two minutes (you don’t need a timer or anything you can judge what you think is two minutes). Then afterwords lift both you’re legs up to your chest, then with you’re legs lean to the left and then lean to the right. Then when you have accomplished all of this your done!! You should feel a buzzing going through your body, that is called the Chi Buzz it’s completely normal :D. (NOTE: Only use the Chi Machine once a day, doing it twice or thrice may over do it, its always recommended to it only once a day)

So you say it can relieve me of my stress, what else does it do besides that?

Well actually the list for the Chi Machine benefits is huge, so I’ll just name the important basic benefits for you guys:

1. It can help you lose weight (correcting your weight actually, if you are either under or over it does not matter)

2. Ten minutes on the Chi Machine is like taking a walk outside for an hour (:O)

3. If you have a problem with low energy, the Chi Machine will help you gain you’re energy back! So you won’t feel tired or lethargic anymore!

Those are only three small things that the Chi Machine is capable of! If you want to learn more click the following link: Chi Machine Benefits

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Well my entire family uses the Chi Machine once every day, its a really cool machine and I hope you guys will enjoy using it too!

Weight Losing Tips: Step 10

Posted by Saito on February 2, 2009

I have another step for those who wish to lose weight and stay healthy, get plenty of sleep at night.

Asleep

It’s extremely important and necessary for you to get at least eight hours of sleep every night. Your body requires it, NEEDS it. It’s the only time your body can release certain hormones that heal and support your body after a day’s work. Sleep also can help you with your weight problems, it has most definitely for me 😀

Back a few years ago I used to stay up till eleven o’clock at night. Almost every night was like that. I couldn’t help that though, my life was very hectic at that point (school was very stressful as I’m sure you all can relate to). Fortunately I have been able to get out of old habits, and I’m happy with the results.

Having a full eight hours of sleep every night has given me far more energy than I thought I could gain. I’ve made out a schedule for myself, maybe you would be interested in viewing it 🙂

MY DAILY SCHEDULE:

1. I get up at seven in the morning.

2. Get chores over with, minor of course, school comes up next and I have to be there on time…

3. Get through school (trying to stay alive in the process).

4. Come home on the bus.

5. Get homework accomplished and after school chores.

6. It’s normally around six when I’m done with everything. My mom is regularly at home so she has dinner prepared. She tries to keep us consuming a full balanced meal at dinner, typically a pasta or a chicken meal (my family and I are very fond of these kinds of dishes). Along with the chicken or pasta dishes we would have salad and french bread (very essential to a healthy meal)

7. Afterwords we dim the lights in our home (your body has a hormone called cortisol, it helps you get to sleep. It is very sensitive to light and will keep you awake if there are too many lights on around you. So we tend to keep our house lights dim in the evening so we can sleep with ease).

8. Watch a calming movie.

9. Get ready for bed, go to sleep.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It appears to be a bit boring I know, but I’d rather be healthy than unhealthy any day; so I keep to my schedule and it works very well for me. Try to keep a reasonable schedule for your daily routine, put all your efforts toward going to bed on time. You should eventually be rid of your extra weight by sticking to your schedule and gaining the healthy benefits that go along with it.
