Can You Walk Off Your Age?

Can You Walk Off Your Age-

It shouldn’t be surprising that walking is good for you, but can it really help you age more gracefully? Growing evidence suggests that by walking as little as 30 minutes every day, most days of week, you can gain a range of mental and physical health benefits. In fact, you could even end up improving your quality of life and living longer. A look at the science offers six reasons to walk a little more: Reason to Walk #1: Live Nearly a Decade Longer One study conducted by researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston found that more leisurely time physical activity was associated with longer life expectancy (1). The study found that those who completed 150 minutes of walking per week lived 3.4 years longer and those at a healthy weight gained 7.2 years when compared to sedentary obese people. In addition, those who spent 450 minutes walking per

Remove the Cobwebs in Your Head With Citicoline

Increasing one very important brain-boosting nutrient.

As we age, many of us become more concerned with things like memory, decision-making, and cognitive function. To address this problem, we must consider one of the most important organs in our body—the brain. It’s no secret that the brain’s important functions can decline over time due to factors like age, stress, or lack of sleep. Luckily, sustaining optimal brain performance doesn’t have to be difficult; you can start by increasing one very important brain-boosting nutrient found in Brain Boost & Renewal™: citicoline. Citicoline Studies More specifically, citicoline, also known as cytidine diphosphocholine or CDP-citicoline, is important for maintaining optimal brain health and has been clinically demonstrated to increase cognition, boost function, and offer neuroprotective benefits (1). While citicoline and its precursors are available from dietary sources such as beef tongue or liver, which are not typical in the modern American diet, supplementation is a great alternative. Several studies have

Why You Need Protein to Stay Stronger As You Age

Why You Need Protein to Stay Stronger As You Age

If you’ve reached your 50s or 60s, your body’s needs for dietary protein may have taken an unexpected turn upward. If you want the same muscle-building response that a mere 10-20 grams of protein could produce in your youth, then new research suggests you’re better off getting 30 or more grams in each meal. In addition, whey protein can help maximize your anabolic response from daily intake of protein while also helping you with weight management. Beyond 30 Grams Per Meal In a recent study, University of Mississippi investigators found that older adults who ate multiple meals over the course of the day with protein in the range of 30 and 45 grams had the greatest association with lean muscle mass and strength (1). The researchers analyzed diet, leg strength, and body composition in more than 1,000 adults ages 50-85 years old. They found that eating frequent meals with at

The 5 Best Strategies for Healthy Aging

Healthy Aging Strategies

Telomeres are the protective nucleic acid and protein caps on the ends of chromosomes and are a key to healthy aging. Because telomeres help maintain stability of our DNA, they are critical in controlling cellular aging and death (1). In the simplest terms, when telomeres get short, bad things happen. At Isagenix we feel addressing your cellular health is an essential part of our Healthy Aging Solution and is part of the reason we feature Product B® IsaGenesis® to support the health of telomeres. Now a new study published in the journal Metabolism has provided an update on how certain nutrients, foods, and dietary patterns affect telomere length (2). For anyone concerned about the aging process, identifying simple strategies to help delay age-associated telomere shortening is of prime importance. Researchers of the review noted that dietary antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and consumption of antioxidant-rich, plant-derived foods help maintain telomere length,

For Best Weight Loss, Combine High Protein With High-Intensity Exercise

The Combo Works.

Eating a diet high in protein leads to more muscle gains and body fat losses when combined with regular high-intensity exercise, a new study suggests. Top protein researchers found that during weight loss, a diet containing a little over 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight was more effective than a diet containing half that amount to promote increases in lean body mass and increased losses of fat mass in combination with high-intensity interval training (1). In the study, subjects in the high-protein group averaged an increase of 2.64 pounds of lean body mass compared with the control group gaining an average of 0.22 pounds. The higher-protein group also had greater fat loss compared to the control group at 10.56 versus 7.7 pounds, respectively. Their four-week, single-blinded study randomized 40 overweight young men to two calorie-restricted groups that either ate a lower-protein diet (1.2 grams per kilogram) or
