Simple home remedies for weight loss

June 1st, 2007

Even though obesity is genetically and environmentally driven to a large extent, improper dietary habits remain the most common reason behind it. An inactive lifestyle works as a catalyst and makes the condition worse.

Basically, obesity is a result of high amounts of intake of calories coupled with low levels of energy utilization. And therefore all holistic weight loss solutions need to focus on both these aspects. Home remedies and herbal weight lossdiets can play a major role in managing overweight and avoiding obesity.

The largest of all problems arises due to the kind of lifestyle we lead today. Job pressures and long commuting hours leave very little spare time for those who are in the rat race. More often than not, the first activity that is compromised is eating. Simply “grabbing a sandwich or something” to save on time is fairly common these days. This basically implies that you are probably eating something that is not healthy (since most foods on the run are unhealthy). It also means that you are not allowing your body and mind to concentrate on the process of eating. And therefore the body cannot focus on the process of digestion. The result is improper absorption of the food that is consumed.

Deer Velvet Boost to Strength and Recovery

June 1st, 2007

The New Zealand Game Industry Board and AgResearch are working hard to prove scientifically - that New Zealand Deer Velvet may have a positive effect on athletic performance.

Although requiring further examination, the latest human clinical trials (conducted by the Otago University Human Performance Cente on behalf of NZGIB and AgResearch) do indicate a possible link between New Zealand Deer Velvet and improved athletic performance on two fronts; improved strength and Endurance in response to training, and improved recovery from muscle tissue damage associated with exercise.

In the first study, scientists at Otago University Human Performance Centre compared the development of muscle strength and Endurance in groups of males taking different forms of New Zealand Deer Velvet to a control group taking a placebo. In the study, 51 male athletes undertook a 12 week period of supervised training during which strength and Endurance were monitored. The group taking a powdered form of New Zealand Deer Velvet antler showed greater improvements in isokinetic strength and muscular Endurance as a result of training than the control group.
