5 Simple Ways to Find Time for Exercise

You shouldn’t need to wake up super early (because sleep is very important for both weight loss and recovery), or ignore your other responsibilities in order to make working out a priority, but rather just look to all of the short term and long term benefits for sustained motivation.Read More

A Must Read for Women of Any Age!

Aerobic exercise is physical activity that increases your breathing and heart rate- like power walking, jogging and swimming.

A recent Harvard School of Public Health study found that muscle strengthening and conditioning activities are associated with a lower risk of T2D. 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

Diet VS. Nutrition

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

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
