Nutrition Almanac


Supplements are excellent short-term therapy, but for the long run, what we eat will determine our fundamental health status as we age.

Regular exercise, managing stress, and sufficient sleep are the other crucial factors in maintaining a high quality of well-being. Consistently depriving the body of adequate sleep impairs mental and physical biochemical processes. Exercise improves and stimulates the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, increases muscle mass, and decreases body fat. It also affects the symptoms of stress.

In a study at the University of New Mexico, more stress hormones and lower levels of endorphins, which are mood enhancing substances, were found circulating in the bodies of sedentary men as opposed to those who exercised.

In this edition, there is an emphasis on the most recent and salient points of the differing aspects of health and nutrition, and on what really works as remedies for many common health conditions.
