Mothers have been forcing cod liver oil on their far-from-receptive children for generations now. While the taste is never going to be agreeable for anyone of any age, we usually come to bear it once we come to understand how fish liver oil is especially good for our health. The DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) omega-3 fatty acids are just what your brain needs to ensure nicely fluid and flexible neural network connections and efficient firing of your synapses.

Most people would say that pain can be ignored or overruled, especially if it’s necessary to persevere and complete whatever it is you need to do. Like the professional athlete who has one cortisone injection after another in his sprained ankle just so he can get out there and not let the team down. If you’ve ever had a high ankle sprain you’ll know that cortisone shots only numb the pain, and moderately at that. It still hurts like heck, but you’re able to wince and grimace through it and get on with what’s expected of you.

The literal definition of ‘frayed ends’ is when the threads of rope or twine are caused to become separated from one another on each tip. For most of us living always ever-busier and resource demanding lives, we’ll relate more to the figurative definition – being less than your best due to unrelenting stress from any number of sources. Left unchecked, frayed ends can lead to an entire unravelling of that length of rope, and constant stress may have you feeling progressively more unraveled yourself.

Though cultural norms are always shifting (and usually for the better), it’s still much more commonplace for a woman to have long hair than a man. Add the fact that women don’t have to face the prospect of genetic pattern baldness quite like men do and ladies are for the most part free to have long, flowing locks for as long as they like throughout life AND have them be regarded as attractive within the standardized definition.

Most people have a favourite colour, or at least one that’s more visually agreeable to their eye as compared to others. It’s suggested that people who would choose black, for instance, are supposed to be more artistic and sensitive, while choosing white is for those who are especially organized and logical. If yellow’s tops for you then you will apparently enjoy learning and sharing your knowledge with others.

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 - 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.

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.
