The Pros and Cons of Juicing

While there is no denying the health benefits of certain fruits and vegetables, that doesn’t mean juicing alone can cure all your ills. Sipping a tall glass of carrot juice after inhaling the new Taco Bell breakfast waffle isn’t going to be all the beneficial, so it’s important to look at the juicing trend from the right perspective. It’s best to include juicing as part of a regular diet and exercise routine for maximum results. Like most health trends, juicing has its pros and cons.

 
Pros

• If you don’t have time have the proper amount of fruits and veggies throughout your day, juicing is an excellent way to get your RDA.

• You get more of the nutrient-dense part of fruits and vegetables when consumed in juice form.

• The nutrients in certain fruits and vegetables have been shown to reduce the odds of certain cancers and conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.

• There are some really great juice blends you can have as a step up from plain juice, including some fruit and veggie combos.

Cons

• The FDA warns juicing may lead to food-borne illnesses due to the lack of pasteurization that protects packaged juices. As a safety precaution, wash any fruits and vegetables prior to tossing them in the juicer and only make enough for a glass or two at a time.

• Juicing removes the fiber from the fruits and some of the veggies used to make these juices, causing your body to absorb fructose sugars faster. This may result in spiked blood sugar levels.

• If you use fruit or mixed fruit and vegetable juicing as your only source of food, you’re going to miss out on proteins and other nutrients you can’t get from fruits and veggies alone.

• You don’t get the same feeling of being “full” as you do from a solid meal. If all you drink is juice, you’re going to feel hungry sooner and be tempted to cheat.

Incorporating Reboot into your daily routine can increase the benefits you’re likely to receive from juicing. Unfortunately, the antioxidants and other beneficial phytonutrients found in juices break down soon after being exposed to air and light. Reboot, with many of the same nutrients, is sealed in a package to maintain the overall nutritional value. Reboot, a blend of seven antioxidant-rich super plant and fruit extracts, also supplements some of the nutrients you may be missing from your juicing selections.

How Reboot Can Help With Aging

Did you ever notice that some people have an eternally youthful appearance and others look like they’re ready for retirement at thirty? It all comes down to what’s going on in your genes. Your body normally does a good job of fighting off foreign invaders. Unfortunately, there are times when your body’s natural defense system becomes overwhelmed with an abundance of invaders known as free radicals. Reboot offers an effective, clinically-tested solution when it comes to the ongoing battle against aging.

Cell Replication and Damaged DNA

Your body has millions of cells that normally do a fine job at keeping everything running properly like a finely-tuned car. Just through the process of operating, your cell’s engine, or DNA, gets clogged with outside invaders that sometimes overwhelm its built-in defenses resulting in internal and external signs of aging passed on from cell to cell as the damaged DNA is duplicated. Studies show that Reboot can reduce cell proetein damage by nearly 50 percent after just a month of daily usage.

Fending Off Harmful Free Radicals

Free radicals, unstable molecules that are a natural byproduct of breathing and living, are created in excessive amounts whenever you smoke, lie in the sun, or breathe in pollutants. In fact, every life-giving breath you take produces free radicals, as does excessive exercise and a strenuous workout. Since the aging process is continuous, Reboot also works on a non-stop basis to tackle free radicals you encounter throughout your day regardless of your activity level.

Combating Oxidative Stress

Excessive free radicals create what is known as oxidative stress, an imbalance between neutralizing antioxidants and high levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Most of the damage of oxidative stress comes from the mutations caused by the modification of your cell’s DNA. Aside from passing the mutation on from one gene to another, a cell may die from the damage caused by the oxidative stress triggered by the excessive free radicals. Reboot takes a different approach to protecting your cells by stimulating your natural antioxidant defenses.

An Added Layer of Protection

Since the aging process has been linked to the gradual erosion of DNA, the added layer of protection provided by Reboot combined with regular diet and exercise gives you a leg up in the eternal struggle against aging. Reboot doesn’t eliminate free radicals, instead it neutralizes the ones already in your body so they can’t harm otherwise healthy cells. Reboot also helps “boost” your body’s natural defenses against cell and DNA damage that can accelerate the aging process.

Additional clinical research and laboratory results offer validation that Reboot is more effective in providing extra cell protection than the amount of antioxidants most people can consume through diet alone. Reboot is proactive rather than reactive by stimulating your body’s antioxidant defenses at the source, meaning within the structure of your cells. While Reboot can’t stop the aging process, it does reduce cell damage and give your body an added level of protection to keep the aging process in check.

What Is Cell Damage?

blog 1The term “cell damage” certainly doesn’t sound like it can be a good thing, but what exactly does it mean? In terms of your health, it could mean early signs of aging with the appearance of wrinkles and lines. The human body is comprised of many cells with several different molecules. Special chemical bonds keep the atoms that make up each molecule in place. Atoms, in turn, contain electrons, protons and neutrons. The smallest and lightest subatomic particle of each atom is an electron orbiting the atom in what is called a shell. Each shell of an atom is “balanced” with an equal number of positively and negatively charged electrons.
Understanding what cell damage is, starts with an introduction to unassuming invaders called free radicals. Free radicals are a natural byproduct of living; created naturally when we breathe. However, when we overeat, smoke, drink alcohol, lie in the sun, or undertake extreme exercise we create them in excess. Excess free radicals are what causes aging, and is the precursor to damaging our health. Free radicals are unstable molecules formed due to weak atomic bonds that split and result in a molecule with an odd, unpaired electron. Free radicals are desperate to obtain the extra electron they need to become stable again. Free radicals attack the nearest stable molecule by “stealing” an electron, which damages an otherwise healthy cell. The cell that was “robbed” becomes a free radical with a missing electron resulting in a chain reaction. Sometimes your body will purposefully create free radicals to neutralize viruses and bacteria. When there are too many free radicals floating around inside your body, however, an imbalance is created. This imbalance is referred to as oxidative stress.

Antioxidants, substances capable of counteracting the cell-damaging effects of oxidation, protect healthy cells from damage caused by free radicals. Antioxidants act as “scavengers” by going after free radicals. Normally, your body can handle free radicals with natural defenses such as antioxidants. When your body comes overwhelmed, it is unable to naturally produce enough antioxidants. While antioxidants are found in certain foods, it’s not always easy to find a balance through diet alone.

Reboot prevents cell damage by reducing oxidative stress and minimizing the impact of cell damage. Reboot, a synergistic blend of seven plants and fruits, works by boosting your natural immunity to help naturally fight free radical damage by neutralizing dangerous free radicals already posing a threat to healthy cells. Reboot doesn’t replace your body’s antioxidant system, instead it effectively “supercharges” your antioxidant system naturally. Reboot protects all cells within your body to lessen your body’s burden to build a natural defense while helping healthy cells regenerate with a balanced set of electrons.30_pk_reboot_box - final low res

Your Intense Physical Exercise May Be Aging You

Any committed athlete knows that an intense workout can do a number on the human body, even one conditioned to be in top physical shape. The culprit is oxidative stress, an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the body’s natural ability to fend off these invaders. Free radicals can interact with molecules within your cells causing damage to genes, proteins, and membranes. There are many benefits to working out on a regular basis such as weight control, increased strength and energy. However, the oxidative stress associated with over-strenuous exercise can also cause damage to DNA, and even be the precursor to catastrophic conditions.

The Impact of an Intense Workout

If your workouts are typically heavy duty in nature, you may notice that it takes longer to recover than it would after moderate exercise. This is why serious athletes tend to feel rundown after an intense workout. The body counteracts the impact of oxidative stress with antioxidants. Antioxidants act as “free radical scavengers” to reduce the formation of free radicals and neutralize existing free radicals.

Supporting the Body’s Natural Defenses

During strenuous exercise, the body experiences an imbalance between its natural defenses and the increased levels of induced free radicals. Reboots works internally to support the body’s natural defenses to reduce recovery time and repair muscle damage. International tennis coach Jeff Goldmann, who has worked with tennis pros around the world, relies on Reboot to get through grueling 6-8 hour days. Whether you’re an active 57-year old coach, an athlete in the prime of your career, or a busy homemaker, you can enjoy the many benefits of an improved immune system, including:

  • Improved anti-oxidant defenses
  • Better recovery
  • Reduced inflammation and muscle damage
  • More Productive Workout

New 6 pack box frontRealistically, it’s not always possible to naturally get enough antioxidants through your diet. Incorporating Reboot into your workout routine can reduce oxidative stress due to excessive unstable molecules overwhelming healthy cells within your body. The result is a faster recovery time and a more productive workout. New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford certainly understands the importance of following a rigorous exercise routine. He also incorporates Reboot into his daily regimen to boost his recovery time after his self-described “maniacal workouts.” Weatherford understands “the importance of detoxifying and reducing free radical damage after strenuous activities.” As an athlete, he’s tried pretty much every recovery method on the market and has found the most success with Reboot.

The benefits of Reboot have been verified in clinical studies, including a 2013 independent study involving healthy adults. The study showed a quarter reduction of cell damage after a week of use and half a reduction after a month. Steve and Jeff may be involved in different aspects of an active lifestyle, but they both understand firsthand the benefits of Reboot when it comes to fighting free radicals, naturally slowing the aging process, and promoting a healthy immune system.

Why REBOOT is Better Than Taking a Vitamin

B_vitamin_supplement_tabletsVitamins certainly have their place when it comes to providing the essential nutrients your body needs on a daily basis. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to get enough vitamins naturally, which is why many people turn to vitamins in pill form. Yet, even that may not be enough to fight the effects of aging and fend off free radicals as they attack healthy cells. While the habit of taking vitamins likely started with the days of chewing on a Fred or Barney daily as a child, the adult in you is better off by incorporating Reboot into your daily routine.

Boosting Your Body’s Natural Defenses

While many fruits and vegetables are excellent sources of natural vitamins, antioxidants alone aren’t as effective at repairing cell damage as you age. Clinical tests show that Reboot can effectively boost your body’s natural defenses against cell and DNA damage, a claim that can’t be shared with vitamin supplements.  Further testing shows that Reboot can reduce cell damage by nearly 50 percent after just a month of use.

Power of Fruits and Plants in a More Direct Form

Since Reboot is in powder form, it has a high bio-availability, or the rate at which nutrients are absorbed by the body. Reboot contains the antioxidant system of seven super fruits and plant extracts selected because of specific anti-aging properties you can’t easily get from consuming fruits and vegetables alone.

Better Quality of Ingredients vs. Other Supplements and Diets

There are thousands of supplements on the market, mostly containing artificially synthesized molecules. Reboot uses only high-quality ingredients selected due to very specific properties. Not only does this ensure that Reboot will function the way it’s supposed to within your body, but it also provides some much-needed peace of mind that you are doing the best for yourself.

If you were to try and achieve the equivalent of Reboot through your diet, it would be very difficult. The synergistic blend of the seven fruit and plant extracts is what makes Reboot so powerful. The convenience is also an added bonus!

Why We Get Sore After Workouts

Even if you practically live in a gym, you’ve probably experience some degree of muscle soreness if you’ve started a new routine or increased reps. Eventually, this soreness does go away. However, it helps to understand what causes this muscle soreness and, more importantly, how to reduce it to avoid feeling the impact later while you’re trying to sleep or a day or so later.

iStock_000020630852Small-4Delayed onset muscle soreness Muscle soreness you feel a day or two later is referred to as delayed onset muscle soreness. This type of soreness is normal, but it can certainly discourage you from wanting to head back to the gym anytime soon. DOMS is caused by added stress and strain on your muscles or by using muscles in a way they weren’t used prior to starting an exercise routine. Muscle Soreness and Strain Symptoms of muscle soreness typically include general soreness in the affected area or soreness that emerges within 24-48 hours after an intense workout. Muscle strain refers to minor injuries to soft tissues and connective tissues. Muscle strain should be treated by a doctor to rule out any serious muscle injuries. Free Radicals and Muscle Strain The simple act of breathing more deeply than you normally do while exercising produces additional free radicals within your body. These uncharged molecules, a byproduct of the extra energy you need to effectively exercise, attack healthy cells which can speed up the aging process. How to Combat Muscle Soreness REBOOT, an antioxidant supplement that accelerates recovery during peaks of excessive free radicals, can help combat muscle soreness following a workout. Additionally, stretching can also prepare your muscles in advance. REBOOT should be taken after a workout to help neutralize free radicals before they can do any damage to healthy cells. It also helps with the hydration process.

Combating Oxidative Stress

what-is-aging-graphic

If you’ve ever cut open an apple and left it out, you’ve noticed the effects of oxidation when the apple turns brown. There’s a similar battle going on within your body between free radicals and healthy cells. When there’s an imbalance between the body’s natural ability to neutralize the harmful impact of free radicals with antioxidants and the amount of free radicals being produced within your body, you have oxidative stress, which can accelerate the aging process. Working to combat oxidative stress, however, can turn the tables on those nasty free radicals and literally help push back the hands of time.

What’s So Bad About Oxidative Stress?

Oxidative stress can make you feel tired and run-down, but it can also have a more dramatic impact. Those lines around your eyes that are becoming more pronounced and those aches and pains you feel after a strenuous workout could be a direct result of cell damage from oxidative stress. To put it simply, unstable molecules running around your body accelerate the aging process by creating an imbalance. Unfortunately, once one cell is damaged, it’s easy to similarly impact nearby healthy cells.

Your Body’s Natural Defenses

The human body is a remarkable system. Your body does put up a natural fight when it comes to dealing with oxidative stress. The body’s main line of defense is the production of antioxidants, which neutralize the free radicals. Since oxidative stress is impossible to avoid – even the simple act of breathing causes some level of oxidation- it’s important to have a natural balance within your body to create an atmosphere conducive to healthy cell growth. New 6 pack box front Sometimes your body needs a helping hand. This is where Reboot, a blend of natural fruits and plants, comes in. Reboot boosts the body’s natural defense system against the cell damage caused by free radicals. Research has seen an average reduction in cell damage of nearly 50 percent after using Reboot daily for a month. Reboot is unique in that it goes right to the source of oxidative stress, serving as a primary line of defense for the cell membranes, preventing free radicals from infiltrating the cell and doing damage to your DNA. Take that, free radicals!

Alcohol and Aging

If you’ve ever woken up after a night of drinking with a dry mouth, you’ve experienced the affects that alcohol can have on aging.
Alcoholic beverages dehydrate the body internally. When your skin is dehydrated from the inside out, wrinkles are more likely to develop. Excessive drinking may also give your skin a paler appearance. Additionally, alcohol increases the production of “stress hormones” that can result in premature or exaggerated aging. This makes it more difficult for your body to mount a natural defense. When your body can no longer effectively fend off attacks to healthy cells, you have a situation where the aging process is accelerated.

Alcohol and the Lack of Essential Nutrients

Since alcohol robs your body of essential nutrients, the impact can cascade and lead to serious health issues beyond a few red lines. Alcohol robs the body of vitamin A, an important antioxidant needed for cell regeneration and repair. This takes away the valuable resources your body needs to mount a solid defense. When you take away certain vitamins and minerals, your body has to work harder to protect cells from oxidative stress and roaming free radicals. Regular consumption of alcohol or frequent binge drinking episodes can lead to decreased efficiency and resiliency of these natural defense mechanisms, throwing your body’s internal balance out of whack.

How Reboot Can Help

Reboot is the backup your body needs to fight a more effective fight against free radicals and cell damage. Reboot boosts the body’s own antioxidant system to prevent cell damage. This added defense reduces free radical damage and protects your DNA. While regular exercise and a generally healthy lifestyle can boost the effectiveness of Reboot, this added line of defense can also counteract some of the affects alcohol can have on your body.

Foods For Your Anti-Aging Diet

An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but certain other foods may keep the plastic surgeon at bay too. Some foods are good for your skin, while other fruits and veggies fend off diabetes, keep your vision sharp and help prevent heart disease.

Fruits and Veggies with Color

As a general rule, colorful fruits and vegetables tend to be the ones you want to incorporate into your diet. Rich blueberries, deep orange carrots, bright red tomatoes and leafy greens all have plenty of antioxidants to help fight the aging process. Some colorful fruits and veggies to incorporate into your diet include:

• Collard and mustard greens and other leafy greens (for your vision)
• Grapes (to help reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease)
• Green and yellow vegetables (helps reduce wrinkles)
• Lemon (to help reduce fatigue, also found in REBOOT)

Whole Grains

Whether it’s oats or brown rice, whole grains can help keep your blood vessels in tip-top shape, which has many benefits. Anything that improves the flow of blood can have an impact on your heart and other vital organs as well as the blood vessels within your skin. Three daily servings of whole grains and fiber can also reduce your odds of developing type 2 diabetes.

Fish

The benefits of omega-3 fatty acids have long been discussed in health circles, especially for heart attack survivors. If you’re not a huge fan of fish, consider fish oil supplements instead. Fish high in fatty acids include:

• Mackerel
• Trout
• Salmon
• Sturgeon
• Bluefish

Dairy

Low-fat milk does a body good. As does yogurt and other dairy products. You can usually get your dairy fix by adding dairy products to the various meals you eat throughout the day or various healthy recipes. Dairy products also keep your cholesterol levels in check.

Nuts

Nuts aren’t as fattening as you may think. Besides, you just need about a quarter once a day to enjoy the health benefits from snacking on nuts. You’ll also do wonders for your blood pressure while lowering your cholesterol level.

These are just a few of the foods that can help you retain a youthful appearance and an overall healthy body as you age. You’ll also want to reduce your sugar intake, limit bakery treats and dairy products. Don’t forget to spare the salt to get more bang from your anti-aging diet.

Mistakes That Could be Aging You!

It’s easy to put off worrying about aging until some later point in the future. However, there are some things you should be thinking about now that could leave you a little more prepared as later approaches. A study by the British Journal of Dermatology suggests that loss of elasticity and other outward signs of aging typically start showing around the age of 35. Even if you’re in fairly good shape, here are some mistakes that could be aging you faster than you anticipated:

Too Many Sweet Desserts

Before you treat yourself to a second slice of pie with a dab of ice cream and a cherry on top, take a careful look at the sugar content of what you’re about to consume. Aside from the cherry, everything else could damage the collagen responsible for keeping your skin smooth and firm. Try desserts sweetened with natural sweeteners like Stevia or beet sugar as an alternative.

You’re Skipping Yoga

Aside from preventing breakouts and reducing stress, yoga is a great way to relax and unwind after a vigorous workout. The improved circulation also gives your skin a healthy glow.

You Always Opt for the Java

Mix things up and have a cup of black or green tea instead of your usual morning java. Both forms of tea have certain protective compounds that may help prevent wrinkles and skin cancer.

You’re Not Strength Training

By incorporating some lifting into your workout routine, you build muscle tone and prevent your skin from sagging from your neck on down. Even a light strength training routine in addition to your other fitness activities can keep your skin looking youthful.

You’re Skipping the Organic Meat Thing
Organic meat may be a bit more expensive than processed meat, but your skin will thank you for making the organic choice. Certain hormones in poultry and other meats may contribute to acne. Simply opting for grass-fed beef can make your skin smoother.

Your Workouts Are Too Intense

Even when you’re exercising, there can be too much of a good thing. If you’re pushing yourself to the point where you’re either tired but can’t sleep or you stay awake from sore muscles, you’re not doing yourself any favors. Scale back your workouts and even take a few days off here and there to give your body time to rest. This also gives your skin time to rejuvenate.
