5 Simple Ways to Find Time for Exercise

girl_plankingFirst of all, we don’t believe the excuse “I don’t have time to exercise”! What that statement is really saying is “I’m not making exercise a priority”.

The Harvard study followed nearly 100,000 women over eight years, and found that women who did more than 150 minutes a week of muscle strengthening or conditioning activity had a 40% lower risk of developing T2D than women who did no muscle work. In addition, women who did at least 150 minutes a week of aerobic exercise and 60 minutes a week of muscle-strengthening were a third as likely to develop T2D as inactive women.Read More

Our cells can only benefit from good nutrition if the foods in the diet are broken down into building blocks small enough to absorb. To sum it up, diet is what we eat, but nutrition is what our cells and tissues actually receive. In fact, there are six stages that make up good nutrition.

Our Scientific Advisory Board understands this distinction well, which is why each NeoLife Nutritional was formulated to support one or more of these vital stages so cells may receive the balanced nutrition they need.Read More
