IS EXERCISE ENOUGH? What We Don't Know About Exercise Will Hurt Us

Regular exercise is a great stress reliever. Yet, here's what most people probably do not know. Exercise, too, creates stress--oxidative stress to be exact. This is particularly true with aerobics exercises. As you take in more oxygen during workouts, the process burns more oxygen as well which creates free radicals. The more free radicals your body has the more stress it suffers.

But health experts assure us that the natural process of burning oxygen as we workout takes care of itself. It has the ability to balance itself, protecting you from oxidatve harm or damage. But wait--the problem is that, with age, your natural processes become weaker and less effective. The free radicals that workouts create in us may soon overwhelm our immune system's ability to correct itself. Then you get more oxidative stress, and later, ailments, as you workout, if this is not remedied.

That's why we need nutritious natural health supplements. As we age, our bodies find it harder to process food to get their precious nutrients. Natural supplements are easier to process and absorb. Moreover, there are certain nutrients which are so important and yet lacking in so many food. Even lacking in most vitamin and mineral supplements. Do you want to know what missing ingredient your nutrition intake lacks but which is vital to your immune defense?

In my case, I take Vital-C non-acidic Vitamin C sodium ascorbate, among other health supplements. It supplements our body's ability to fight off stress and aging. Vital-C sodium ascorbate and workouts are among the best health and fitness supplemental combinations. You can't say the same of synthetic Vitamin C which only adds acidity and oxidative stress to your body eventually. These two are reciprocal--acidity adds oxidative stress, and vice versa. Imagine what you'd get if you worked out and took synthetic Vitamin C.

Does exercise alone get rid of stress? No. It's a key to fight stress but it's incomplete without immune boosters, stress fighters, and acidity neutralizers, especially as you advance in age. And to get all three anti-stress components, just take Vital-C sodium ascorbate. No side effects. Zero acidity. Alkaline promoter. It's been proven effective and safe by no less than a world renowned medical scientist.

Or, take whatever alkaline Vitamin C supplement you have or know. It's so important to take different natural health supplements if you're a serious health buff. Invest on your health.

Folks new to workouts often get the flu or cold the first time they workout. And they wonder why. Has this happened to you? It did bother me before. Each time I started a more advanced workout [especially with jogging], I had a cold or the flu. But not anymore. Thank God for Vital-C.

It's not the workout that causes it, it's the lack of good non-acidic Vitamin C in your system. Commercial Vitamin C only makes matters worse. So, to effectively get rid of stress through exercise, supplement with real non-acidic Vitamin C.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.

Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
