Health Math’s For Your Body And The Brain!

Hi,

By simply applying this proven health maths equation to your everyday life, you can improve yourself physically and mentally.

These four steps will give you the body and brain boost you’re looking for.

The 4-step health math equation 

Better Brain, Better Body – Perfect!

 

Step 1: Nutrition

Increase your good FATS; ladies, this is a must!

Fats affect hormones because hormones in the body are composed of fats and cholesterol. Cholesterol is what estrogen and testosterone are formed from. So if you are under-consuming fats, you are potentially missing out on good hormonal balance. #fact

Step 2: Exercise

A Full-body program included – click through!

The ‘full body’ training split is simply a way of planning your training to hit the whole body, which is simple enough to understand; we will look into why it is an excellent way of training and explain it in further detail.

 

Step 3: Sleep

The more Zzz, the more memory you have.

Sleep helps your brain work properly and plays an essential role in how you learn and remember things. Research shows that sleep deficiency alters activity in the brain, decreasing cognitive function. This can lead to memory and decision-making problems and affect your learning and problem-solving skills.

Step 4: Acetyl-L-carnitine

The heart and soul of the party (well, for your brain)

Acetyl-L-carnitine is an amino acid found in nearly all cells of your body. A natural component of the brain’s chemistry, acetyl-L-carnitine is essential for brain and cognitive health. One of the most extensively researched brain nutrients, acetyl L-carnitine has a proven ability to enhance mental energy and wellness.

That’s because it increases levels of essential neurotransmitter chemicals needed for alertness, memory, focus, and learning. Additionally, it provides energy to the brain and repairs damage to brain cells by stress and poor nutrition.

Health Math’s For A Happier, Healthier 2022!

One month into 2022 – here’s to a happier, healthier you! 

Apply some health maths to your everyday life, and I promise you’ll see the difference in no time! 

There are four steps, a simple equation of sorts, to guarantee your health success, with a tip borrowed from our ancestors

The 4-step health math equation 

A happier, healthier you!

 

Step 1: Salt & Lime Water

Salt and lime water. Your body needs salt, not the refined, table version but natural variants. You can read more about the types of salt and how salt and lime improve your digestion here.

Step 2: Your Nutrition

Real food is real good (for you)! Understanding that you are what you eat is the best way to improve your nutrition, and you can learn more here.

Step 3: Fibre

When it comes to digestive health, the first question that your health care practitioner will ask is a simple one:

Are you getting enough fibre in your diet? You can get all your fibre requirements in one product. Did you know that our Fiber + is a combination of natural fibres derived from fruits, vegetables, roots, seeds and tree extracts?

This product was designed with the Paleolithic diet in mind – the diet of our ancestors that our physiology may be most adapted to. Therefore, it is free of non-Paleolithic food extracts such as grains (wheat, oat, and rice bran) and legumes (peas, beans, and soy fibres).

Step 4: Gut Health

Once you have integrated salt+lime+water, fibre, and nutrition, you must support your overall gut health. Our guts took a beating through a lifetime of bad habits (yes, we all have them). And in knowing this, we stock a magnificent product called GI Revive Powder.

This powder is a natural supplement to support your gut lining while you undergo making changes to improve your health.

 

Follow these four steps for a stronger, happier you!

December Newsletter, “Fattening the curve”!

Wednesday, 2nd December 2020

Dear Friends,

As we head into the festive season, no doubt we’re all familiar with the overindulgence that can lead to holiday weight gain.

But these are unprecedented times. Shuttered gyms and stress eating while staying at home during the Covid-19 lockdown has led to widespread weight gain, birthing phrases like the “Quarantine-15” and “Covid-15”. Yes, this is very true!

We may not be “flattening the curve” fast enough, but we have certainly been “fattening the curve”.

Sadly, being overweight or obese; both are often linked to chronic health problems, This is also emerging as a significant risk factor for coronavirus-related complications. Excess body fat contributes to systemic inflammation, inhibiting a healthy immune-system reaction to infection.

Combined with the sedentary lifestyles of Netflix and Zoom fatigue, stress, and inadequate sleep, unhealthy eating can lead to severe health issues. This is not a winning combination to be fighting fit!

With exercise, one of the best things you can do to improve your brain and body’s response, which in turn can promote your weight loss and help anxiety, is to supplement with inositol. This vitamin plays a role in many bodily processes and has many health-promoting effects, especially relevant during these times.

READ MORE ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF INOSITOL HERE

YPSI Inositol Plus Magnesium is an excellent product providing 2 grams of inositol along with 400 mg of magnesium glycinate – great for promoting healthy sleep – and amino acids L-glycine and L-taurine is a water-soluble powder.

This is one of the products I give every single one of my clients at one point. See why it’s one of the most important vitamins you should consider adding to your health arsenal.

Your partner in health,

Roan

PS: Have you gained weight during the Covid-19 lockdown? Looking ahead to the holiday season, is weight loss or weight maintenance one of your goals? Let me know.

How to Detox from the Inside Out and Banish Toxins

Detox diets, cleanses, and therapies are all the trend today. But the message isn’t new. 

People have used different detoxification practices to purge the body of foreign invaders for centuries. However, the prevalence of the current detox trend reflects, in part, the ever-increasing amounts of toxins in our modern world. And we know for sure that a cumulative toxic burden, if not addressed, can lead to serious health issues.

Foundation Series: Training

Training is what the body needs to adapt and develop. Consider that without sunlight plants struggle to grow, similarly, without training our bodies will not develop and grow much.

Your body needs training as a stimulus to take it outside of its normal comfort zone, which ultimately means the body has to make changes to develop. You may only be able to do a bodyweight squat at the start of your training, but after the body is exposed to training consistently and repeatedly it will get stronger and you might be squatting with a barbell on your back after several weeks.

Foundation Series: Supplementation

Supplementation is the use of specific vitamins, minerals and ingredients to achieve a targeted outcome in your health and fitness. Our current environment and lifestyles mean it is hard to get everything we need from food alone, which would be ideal, and thus the targeted use of supplements can be of benefit to your health. There are some supplements that are useful for everyone to take, and this article will elaborate upon supplement basics.

Foundation Series: Recovery

Recovery is essential all the things that you do outside of training, it includes sleep and stress management which are vital to good health, but recovery also extends to enjoying your hobbies and making time for yourself. So getting 8 hours of sleep with good quality deep sleep is integral to recovery, as is going on a long walk which you enjoy, reading a book or spending time seeing your friends and family.

Nutrition: Understanding we are what we eat

Nutrition is the catalyst to excellent health, strength and body composition. Nutrition is crucial for physical goals (i.e. fat loss) and more health and lifestyle-oriented goals (for example, better focus, energy, detoxification, and blood sugar control).

What we do in training needs to be matched by how we eat and recover, and the saying “we are what we eat” still holds.

Foundation Series: Gut and Brain

The body is very highly connected and there is a link between the organs of the gut and the brain which is termed the ‘Gut-Brain Axis’. The link between the two works both ways, the gut and the things we digest can affect our brain function and similarly stresses to the nervous system can affect our gut. Research in this area originated in around 2004, and since has gained a lot of momentum in the scientific community (1), and can impact your health in numerous ways.

Featured Supplement: Essential Amino Acids


Here at Human Performance Hub, we are a big believer in pre-workout nutrition (nutrition around workouts) as workouts offer a great opportunity to get nutrients into the body through enhanced insulin sensitivity (Muscles open themselves up for refuelling).

Do we need health supplements?

Firstly it must be stated that supplements are by definition a supplement to a healthy diet and lifestyle, not a replacement for it. People get fat and tired because they don’t exercise, don’t sleep, expose themselves to toxins, have too much stress and eat poorly.
