Yes Wellness Blog - The Bio Tune Up: Natural Ways to Increase Metabolism for Weight Loss

There’s that age old expression, ‘time waits for no man.’ Not only is it especially true, but it really might be more appropriately phrased as ‘time waits for no one’ as the inevitability of the passing of time applies equally to either gender. When it comes to your physiology, you’ll hear people lament about the ‘ravages’ of time as we all see ourselves drifting further and further away from the prime of our youth.

Yes Wellness Blog - Free Radical Fighter: Vitamin E’s Impressive Antioxidant Capacities

The first 4 vitamins, in alphabetical order from A to D, take up the bulk of the attention and fanfare afforded to the collection of them. Vitamins E and K don’t get near the same level of acclaim, and more people will be asking ‘what is vitamin e good for?’ That’s interesting considering E is in large part the antioxidant equal of Vitamin C, while K is integral to bone health and promoting effective blood coagulation when you give yourself an open wound.

Yes Wellness Blog - Saying No to the ‘Sugar Blues’: The Superiority of Stevia

An ‘eye opener’ is any piece of information that meets 3 specific criteria; A) it’s new to you, B) its proven to be factual, and C) it leads you to have a new and typically opposite understanding related to some aspect of the subject matter. In 1975, American researcher and writer William Dufty’s book ‘Sugar Blues’ was published. It was considered to be an eye opener as it detailed the very nefarious nature of the refined white sugar industry and how white sugar is a supremely addictive and harmful substance that humans should ideally NEVER ingest.

Yes Wellness Blog - Apple Cider Vinegar: Fabulously Fermented, Superstar Solution

Many people will associate vinegar as that perfect taste bud turner for adding to their French fries. That’s but only one of the many types of vinegars, all of which are produced by a fermentation process where ethanol is broken down by acetic acid bacteria. White, or malt, vinegar as that type is referred to, is very generic in its applications, which range from flavouring all the way to cleaning and adhesive removal. Turns out that acetic acid stuff is quite something!

Yes Wellness Blog - The Mental Side to Sport Training Recovery

Anyone who trains for peak performance in a sport or athletic pursuit of any sort will know that recovery is just important as the physical training itself and eating a diet that works for reaching your goals. Rest is commonly understood to be important for recovery. It’s true that letting the body be at rest and getting sufficient quality sleep is a key to growing, improving, and maximizing your output potential. However, there’s another ‘R’ in the equation - relaxation.

The majority of us will have all 5 of the senses at our disposal, and value each of them considerably. If there’s one of the 5 that most would deem absolutely indispensable,  it would be their sight. Responding to visual stimuli makes up a big part of the entirety of our human experience, and to lose that sense would be far more crushing than becoming deaf, for instance. Both would significantly troubling, and perhaps you’d feel differently, but we figure most would take their eyes over their ears if they had to choose.

Yes Wellness Blog - Tip-Top Tummy: Far-Reaching Benefits of Optimal Digestion

Eating is one of life’s most enjoyable pleasures for a human being, both for the nourishment and sensory experiences of it. By the time we reach adulthood most of us have very developed tastes and preferences for certain types of foods, but that also typically comes with some unhealthy eating habits. Some of them you can be dealt with in the interest of continuing to enjoy certain foods (and ingredients within them) in moderation, but ingesting certain foods and ingredients may inhibit the digestive functioning of your stomach and intestines.

Yes Wellness Blog - Understanding the ‘Morphs, Metabolisms, and Natural Approaches to Weight Loss

Every human being has a unique physiological makeup, and when it comes to your propensity to gain body weight there’s a direct relation to two specific aspects of that – your body type, and your metabolism. Your body type is genetically inherited, of course, and you’ll have it through the entirety of your life. Your metabolic rate, however, is the real variable in the equation here and the way it becomes impeded by factors related to age (not age itself – a very important distinction there) can be significantly problematic dependent on your body type.

Yes Wellness Blog - Fabulous Fungi: Embracing Mushrooms as Nutraceuticals Round here, most of us have our first introduction to mushrooms while discovering meadow mushrooms or eastern flat-topped agaricus growing in the backyard of our childhood homes. They’re definitely visually intriguing as they stand there conspicuously in a sea of green grass, and it’s quite natural to pick one or more of them and take them inside to show Mom and Dad what you’ve found in the backyard.

Smart Under the Sun: The Benefits of Natural Sun Care Products

Yes Wellness Blog - Smart Under the Sun: The Benefits of Natural Sun Care Products Human beings were designed to spend a lot of time in the sun, and in fact the vast majority don’t do so nearly enough. That’s a reflection of our nearly entire departure from a hunter gatherer life if you want to stick to the evolutionary perspective angle, but from a more literal one most of us work indoors and are far too sedentary overall.
