A Beginner’s Guide to Probiotics

TN-Beginners-Guide-to-Probiotics-Sign

Your body is a hotbed of bacteria, much of it beneficial and essential. Most of these bacteria reside in the gut, outnumbering your body’s cells by 10 to one. According to Harvard Medical School, your bowels are home to an estimated 100 trillion microorganisms covering more than 500 species, including mostly bacteria, but also viruses and yeasts.

These microorganisms are found in your large intestine and play an important role in a number of body systems and functions. The microbiota manufactures vitamin K and some B vitamins, and it turns fibers into short-chain fats that feed the gut wall and perform a variety of metabolic functions, earning it the nickname “the forgotten organ” by scientists.

Imbalances in the gut flora are linked to diseases like obesity, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, colon cancer, depression, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. It can also cause myriad digestive woes, including inflammatory bowel diseases like ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.

A healthy balance of gut bacteria is linked to a wide range of health benefits, including improved digestion and immune function, healthier skin, weight loss, and a reduced risk of a number of diseases. Balancing the gut microbiota is largely a matter of ingesting probiotics.

New Study: Exercise Slows Aging. Are You Getting Enough?

TN-New-Study-Exercise-Training

Good news if you’ve been an exerciser for the past few decades: A new study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology found that the muscles of older women and men who have exercised for several decades are virtually indistinguishable in many ways from the muscles of healthy 25-year-olds. The participants also had significantly higher aerobic capacities than most people their age, making their biological age some 30 years younger.

Aging obviously takes a toll on our bodies, no matter how healthy we are. But this new research suggests that what we consider to be normal, age-related deterioration may not be normal, and it may not be inevitable.

If you’re over 50 and haven’t been exercising regularly for the past 30-odd years, don’t lose hope. Starting an exercise regimen at any age will improve your health, prevent disease, and extend your life. If you’re already active, stay that way. If you’re just getting started, here are five things you need to know.

The Dangers of Ultra-Processed Foods and How to Swear Them Off

TN-UltraProcessedFoods-Cupcake

What do breakfast cereals, soft drinks, fast food, packaged cupcakes, and frozen dinners have in common? Aside from the fact that most of us find these foods delicious, they’re all considered ultra-processed foods.

Now, you’ve heard of processed foods, those foods that have somehow been altered from their original state, such as grain to bread or peanuts to peanut butter. But not all processed foods are unhealthy–think whole-grain bread, frozen veggies, and milk, all of which are processed in some way before they find their way onto the grocery store shelves. Ultra-processed foods, on the other hand, can literally kill you.

Ultra-processed foods, according to a study published in the journal Nutrition and Metabolism Research, are those that contain, in addition to sugar, salt, oils, and fats, “food substances not used in culinary preparations.” These include artificial colors and flavors, chemical preservatives, and additives that create pleasant textures. Ultra-processed foods are the ones you really need to watch out for, and here’s why.

Is It Time for a Liver Cleanse?

Thrive-LiverCleanse-Man

We live in a world of toxins, and your liver plays a major role in removing environmental and dietary toxins from your body. Common toxins include those that are found in everyday cleaning and body care products, processed foods and drinks, and environmental pollution, such as pesticides and heavy metals.

How well your body removes these sorts of toxins depends on your liver function. When liver function isn’t optimal, it can lead to a range of problems due to toxin being allowed to build up, and this can interfere with the digestion of food and fats in the body and lead to much more serious health conditions if left untreated.
