5 Keys to Great Health[EXTRACT]
I want to welcome all the females and the males out there with a first article that pertains to both sexes. Its true, men and women are different is can be, in appearance, in the way we think and act, we’re simply hard-wired that way. But the bottom line is: we’re all looking to improve our health and there are some things that we can all do to get healthier together. Today, I’m talking specifically about physical health-preventing aging and chronic disease and losing weight. Here are my top 5 health tips for both men and women that all have added health bonuses that make them my all time faves. Here we go…

Water. Yes, we all know we’re supposed to get 8 glasses of it per day but I’m always amazed when I realize how critical it is to our daily functioning. Without proper hydration, our concentration and focus plummet. We need water to feel alert and for our livers to flush toxins and fat out of our bodies. Of course, water keeps bowels moving regularly and this is also key to preventing disease and keeping weight down.Omega 3. I especially love them in the form of Fish or Cod liver oil, that form of Omega 3’s are ready for the body to use and prevent heart disease, reduce blood pressure, help varicose veins, improve circulation and reduce blood triglyceride levels. Omega 3 is also beneficial for those with depression and cancer as well. Added bonus: helps you lose weight, especially when already exercising.Calcium/Magnesium. Again, we know this dynamic duo to be essential to building strong bones, but they do oh so much more. Magnesium helps with constipation, leg cramps, hypertension, and kidney stones and calcium eases insomnia-and both help with nerve function, which is great if under stress. Plus both play a role in assisting in weight loss as well. Who couldn’t use deeper sleep and to lose a pound or 2?

Fiber. This sounds like one for older folks but each and every one of us could use the gentle internal brushing that fiber provides for us. Fiber absorbs excess fats, preventing their absorption (and again, helping in weight loss) and has benefits for colon cancer, heart disease and diabetes. And you easily get it from foods, so no need to purchase supplements.Protein. There’s tons of research out there these days on the importance of getting good quality protein in the diet. From stabilizing blood sugar to promoting the building of muscle to helping with weight loss, high-protein is the new low fat.
