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.

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

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…
