YOUTH Skin Care – Revolutionary

Have you ever wondered how safe the products are that you put on your skin?  Do all of those “anti-aging” products actually work? Is purity and science behind the products you use important?

YOUTH Skin Care was researched for 8 years in order to bring us products that not only work but also don’t have over 2500 of those ingredients that are shown not to be safe.

Here is some Q&A that helps us understand the “Why?” we might want to change brands and have fabulous results!  I will be doing several blogs with answers to different questions we all have. First let’s start with: read more -->

True or False- Day 5 – Are you a Workaholic?

Day 5

Attention workaholics: How many hours can you clock each week before your heart pays a price?
A. 45___
B. 50___
C. 55___
D. 60___

Answer: A. When researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Centers and the University of St Thomas in Houston analyzed data on more than 1,900 people, they found that among people who worked 45 hours per week for a decade or more, each additional hour meant greater risk of heart disease. Risk climbed 16 percent when people put in 55 hours and 35 percent for 60 hours. read more -->

True or False – Day 3 – Heart Health

Day 3

“Women need to start worrying about heart disease after they hit menopause”.

Answer: False
It’s believed that the drop in estrogen that accompanies menopause may make your blood vessels less elastic, increasing the strain on your heart.  However, when researchers followed nearly 1,500 women over nine years, they found that in the years leading up to menopause, there was an increase in the severity of metabolic syndrome…a group of risk factors, including high fasting blood sugar and high blood pressure, associated with heart disease. This effect was even more pronounced in black women. read more -->

True or False – Day 2

Day 2

Which of these is not a risk factor for heart disease?
A. High blood pressure ___
B. Obesity___
C. Migraines ____
D. Smoking ____
E. Diabetes_____

Answer: Trick question…they all might be. You can probably rattle off most risk factors by…well, heart, with the possible exception of migraines.  But a Harvard study of more than 100,000 women recently found that migraine sufferers were 50 percent likelier to have a heart attack, a stroke, or fatal heart disease, regardless of other risk factors, Genetics, hormones and inflammation are all possible culprits, but “the short answer is that we do not yet know what precise mechanism causes this,” says lead researcher Tobias Kurth, MD, adjunct professor at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. read more -->

Aging & The Throwaway Culture Continued

Let’s hear it for our fabulous over 60 crowd!!

The question is, how do we all come out of the closet and say to the many who have ignored us, “I am here! I have valuable information to share, ideas & perspectives that might change the directions our society is taking”?  Aging is magnificent – let’s live it to the fullest.

Families, now further apart, often look at their parents as obsolete or having suddenly gone “stupid” with minimal value to offer. While they have no patience for us, perhaps we can teach them that patience is a virtue that took us years to acquire. read more -->

Who wouldn’t want to feel energetic and be healthy at any age?

Yikes!  Did someone say, “How would you like to feel at 40, 50, 60, 70, even 80 and beyond?  Good grief –  80?  What have you done to prepare????   Hey!  Best to start today so you can be known, like me,  as the energetic grandparent who runs circles around so many of those younger.

All kidding aside, who wouldn’t want to lead a happy, energetic & healthy life until it is time to kick off!!

Ok, let me push myself to the front of the line.  What have I done?  Where did I start? There is a funny commercial out where a person says if I just eat this one piece of broccoli I will be healthy, then it cuts to a person lifting a weight one time and says,  “Just think if I just lift this weight one time, I will be healthy”. NOT SO FAST!!   As we grow older I believe we need to find different ways to keep our immune system strong to fight off disease, exercise to stay limber and flexible, supplements to keep our bones, mind, muscles and body strong.  You can feel great no matter what your age! read more -->
