Lifestyle Changes That Can Turn Back The Clock

Let’s face it, we don’t really think about aging when we’re young. When we are in our prime, we put our bodies through a lot and usually without considering the consequences. Remember those college days filled with all-nighters and greasy cafeteria food? Now that we’re older and wiser, we wish we treated our bodies better. Until someone brilliant invents a time machine to take us back to our golden days, there are three not-so-secret lifestyle changes that can turn back the biological clock.

Step 1: Eat Well

Using Coconut Oil to Maximize Nutrition in Your Diet

So we know all about olive oil- but what about coconut oil? The long demonized coconut oil was banished from our pantries due to its high levels of saturated fat. Saturated fat is linked to a higher risk of heart disease which is why we failed to give it a chance.

Probiotics: Germs That Are Good For Your Health

A growing body of studies tells us that the answer to this question is NO. Bacteria are essential to the design of the body and basic human nutrition. Our gut is home to over 500 bacterial species. These beneficial microorganisms help prevent and alleviate many conditions, especially issues related to the gastrointestinal tract and the immune system. When we use antibiotics, we kill the bad along with the good. It is important to replace the destroyed good bacteria for a number of reasons. If our bacteria balance gets out of whack, we have a harder time suppressing the growth of harmful bacteria. People lacking certain beneficial bacteria in their digestive tracks will suffer from [...]
