Flaxseeds

You’ve probably heard that flaxseeds are good for you. But you likely don’t know why. They’ve got lignans, which act like estrogen in the body that block estrogen receptors on cells that reduce the rate of cancer cell growth in the body.

Tea

Looking for the most potent source of antioxidants there is? Then the next time you’re in the grocery store, look for some tea. Tea works by breaking down bad cholesterol in the body, which prevents blood clots that improves blood vessel function, thus, reducing the risk of heart disease.

Health & Fitness Tip/Fact #1

When it comes to lower body exercises, the barbell squat is one of the most effective exercises to burn fat and build muscle. Not only does it work your lower body but your upper body as well so it can be considered a total body exercise. While your lower body does most of the work, your upper body stabilizes the weight.

Health & Fitness Tip/Fact #2

As you go about your lower body workouts, one exercise you will want to include in your protocol plan is the deadlift. Stiff legged deadlifts are great for working your glutes, your lower back as well as your hamstrings and, at the same time helping you to be more steady on your feet. If you do a lot of squatting and leg press work, you may be overdeveloping your quads while underdeveloping the back of your body. To improve your balance, deadlifts are key.

Health & Fitness Tip/Fact #3

Looking for a boost for your workout session? One supplement you will want to consider adding for a boost is caffeine. Caffeine is not necessarily a supplement you need to purchase - you can simply get it from drinking a morning cup of coffee. While most people realize caffeine will give them a boost of energy and have experienced this before, they may not be acutely aware of all the other benefits it will have on their workout session.
