Simple Steps to Win the Battle Against Aging Skin

Fine lines and wrinkles. They’re just part of the normal aging process.

At least, that’s what you’ve always told yourself. But wrinkles, age spots and other skin maladies don’t have to be just another part of reality. Taking care of your skin takes just a little time, effort and a few key ingredients.

Protect Against the Sun
Sun damage is one of the leading causes of aging skin, according to the Mayo Clinic. Constant exposure to the sun’s rays can cause wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots and other skin conditions. To help protect your skin from the sun, follow a few simple rules:

Recharge Your Health with “Spring Cleansing”

By Dennis Harper, DO

We are all familiar with spring cleaning—the part of the year when we traditionally set aside time to clean the house or the yard. During this time, we should also remember our bodies.

When I’m asked about the best time to cleanse your body, my answer is generally, “As soon as your body starts to feel poorly.” The human body can give you clues for making good nutritional decisions, and listening closely to it is a great step toward being in charge of your health.

Listen to your body and act according to the feedback you receive.

Your Recipe For Relaxation

Transport yourself to an island paradise from the comfort of your kitchen!

Even if you can’t dig your toes into the sandy beaches of Hawaii or San Diego, you can still enjoy the flavors of a tropical getaway.

Here’s what to do:

1. Mix up a Key Lime Pie Shake with your Natural Creamy Vanilla IsaLean® Shake, a stick of Citrus Want More Energy?® and 1/2 to a full sheet of graham crackers, plus ice and water.

2. Find a fun glass to drink out of, a straw and maybe even one of those little umbrellas to garnish your getaway in a glass.

3. Put your feet up and relax for a bit (about 7-10 minutes to drink your shake and get the best results thanks to the active enzymes).

Obesity rates climb in Canada and U.S., but Canadians remain slimmer

Ottawa— The Canadian Press - Published

A new Statistics Canada study suggests one in four Canadian adults is clinically obese, compared with one in three in the United States.

The study, released jointly with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, says 24.1 per cent of adults in Canada were obese between 2007 and 2009. In the U.S., the figure was 34.4 per cent.

More interestingly, the study compared today’s rates to those measured between 1986 and 1994 and found that while both nations became more obese over the decades, we gained weight at roughly the same rate, leaving the gap between skinny Canadians and fat Americans relatively stable.

The prevalence of obesity in Canada increased by about 10 percentage points for men and eight for women; in the U.S. it climbed by 10 percentage points for men and 12 percentage points, respectively.

Fusing Aging Theories: Telomere Shortening Leads to Mitochondrial Dysfunction

A study finds a link between two theories of aging, which could open doors for research into improved anti-aging therapies.By Isagenix Nutritional Sciences

New research is adding insight and linking three theories of aging—one that suggests telomere shortening governs lifespan, and two others that suggest dysfunctional mitochondria or oxidative stress leads to aging.

At Harvard-affiliated Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, scientists have gathered data suggesting telomere shortening is the cause of mitochondrial dysfunction and diminished antioxidant defenses. Together, they decrease the body’s energy and diminish organ function, both characteristic of old age.
