He’s been in the health industry for over 25 years, coached thousands of clients, and is sought out by athletes and high-performance oriented individuals worldwide for his advice on how to optimize their health and fitness levels. What Are Enzymes? ENZYME - noun BIOCHEMISTRY a substance produced by a living organism which acts as a catalyst to bring about a specific biochemical reaction. There are approximately 25,000 different enzymatic functions in the body The number of enzymes that you have present in your body is directly proportion to the amount of chemical reactions that you can engage in in the body. The difference between stones, plants, and people is enzymes, the amount and the role of those enzymes. They are the most critical component to all metabolic transactions. Enzyme Bank It's like having a bank account. In other words, your ability to write metabolic checks, to build, to repair, to heal, to digest your food, to make your hormones work, to break down the smallest chemical reactions, to make your skin nice, you name it, requires an enzymatic pathway. Our Current Food Supply is Lacking In today's world, we've radically compromised the amount of enzymes that we're getting from our food, the quality of those enzymes, and we've added a host of agents that actually interrupt our body's natural enzymatic mechanisms and that is having consequences across the globe that are extremely dire. Pottenger & His Cats Francis Pottenger, Jr, MD, has given the cat world one of the best books available in the study of carnivore's nutrition. From 1932 to 1942, Dr. Francis Marion Pottenger Jr. conducted a group of experiments to determine the effects of heat-processed food on cats. Cats fed an all-raw diet were healthy while cats fed the cooked meat diet developed various health problems. At the time of Pottenger’s studies the heat labile amino acid taurine had not yet been identified as essential for cats. This work shows that the deficiencies Pottenger identified in cats correspond with those of a taurine deficiency and are the direct result of the lack of taurine in the feline diet. The physiological effects of a cooked diet described by Pottenger in his papers were compared with data from recent studies on taurine deficiency in the feline diet. Results. Pottenger’s main observations of near and far sightedness, cardiac lesions, increased stillbirth, low birthweight, poor kitten survival, and developmental abnormalities each correspond to published descriptio

Professional Athlete Shares Secrets for Optimal Health

Most of us enjoy a good drumbeat, but did you ever stop to think about the athleticism required to bring us the beat? The pounding beat takes a toll on the joints and ligaments. Inflammation is a drummer’s nemesis. Tune in today as Frank and Lauren Zummo share the routines that keep Frank in top athletic shape whether at home and on tour with his band, Sum41. FEATURED PRODUC Turmeric 3D The ultimate support for healthy inflammation levels. Pure, powerful, organic fermented turmeric. Fermentation maximizes your body’s intake of nutrients. Also provides you fermented vitamin D3! Supports healthy inflammation levels * * * About Frank Zummo Frank Zummois an American musician, songwriter, and record producer, best known as the drummer forSum 41 andStreet Drum Corps. About Lauren Zummo Lauren is Director of Client & Talent at Pathfinders Health Search. Executive search consultant and talent scout specializing in the placement of perioperative leadership. * * * What Started Frank’s Natural Health Journey? I was having lots of inflammation issues, just from the amount of shows, and just being a drummer. It just takes a toll playing so hard. And it was just bad, like literally it was scary bad with just my shoulders, how bad they were inflamed, and my forearms getting inflamed, and that’s when my wife actually found you guys, and that started this journey, about, yeah, three years ago. J: Lauren, you’re the one that found us initially, right? L: Right. J: Why were you looking for organic solutions as opposed to prescription meds? Or did you guys try prescription meds? L: First of all, organic, to me, it’s just an absolute no-brainer. But on the other side of it, as far as like prescription, I think it started because like I became allergic to penicillin when I was in high school. And then, when I was in college, I got a flu shot and broke out in hives. So, I think I’ve just always had these sensitivities, and it’s driven me to look for other solutions. J: We sent you a bunch of our different products. And what has that done for you now, Frank? I mean has that made a big difference? Did you feel a difference when you started taking any of the supplements? F: I told her what was going on, and she had been following a lot of the work that you were doing with The Truth About Cancer. And through that rabbit hole, she found turmeric. L: I had an email that said—like addressing inflammation. And I’m like “Okay, there might be something to this. Let’s look into this.” F: I tried it on the break, and then I went on a nine-week tour, which is the longest tour I’ve ever done in my life, a consecutive tour, being out for nine weeks and Europe, playing two hours a night, playing the crazy music that we play. And I didn’t have one issue. I didn’t have to call in a sports therapist on that tour. Frank’s Regimen First thing I do when I wake up in the morning is, I think there’s six bottles of stuff I take with you guys to start my day. 7M+ to keep my wellness on the road Probiotixx, because I’m eating all different random stuff every day in all these different countries I’m in, with different catering backstage. I will do a bone broth smoothie with your guys’ products and load it with everything I possibly can, with the collagens and all that. But the turmeric pills, I just started taking the Ageless Brain that you guys came out with, OrganiZymes. J: What’s other stuff that you’re doing? F: Constant training. When I’m off tour, I have a boxing coach, I’m boxing weekly. I go to the gym. I run constantly. Just cardio, cardio, cardio. I trained for a month with Laird Hamilton and Gabby Reece. Laird changed the game with healthy amazing coffees. I use his coffee and creamers. I’ll even put those in my smoothies sometimes, too, which is great. Activate, which is like cayenne and lemon, and all this stuff, to kind of jump start your day. So, I’ll take that with all your guys’ vitamins and all his like coconut waters to just stay hydrated, which is

Suffering from Back Pain? Leading Expert Shares Her Secrets to Being Pain-Free

Back to Life Program and how people listening can get relief from back pain. Featured Product Turmeric 3D The ultimate support for healthy inflammation levels. Pure, powerful, organic fermented turmeric. Fermentation maximizes your body’s intake of nutrients. Also provides you fermented vitamin D3! Supports healthy inflammation levels * * * About Emily Emily Lark is a speaker, author, studio owner, and creator of the internationally bestselling program Back to Life. After living most of her life with debilitating back pain, Emily created a method to naturally heal back pain that has now helped hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Back to Life is so simple that anyone can do it from home in just minutes a day and it has quickly become the #1 healthy back DVD program in the world. Back Pain Statistics Back pain accounts for more than 264 million lost work days in one year—that’s two work days for every full-time worker in the country. Experts estimate that up to 80% of the population will experience back pain at some time in their lives Emily’s one thing that most people are doing wrong when it comes to chronic pain. “I think one of the key things that people are missing when it comes to chronic pain, I think the biggest thing that people are missing is the strength-building, too, because if we can strengthen the muscles to support our skeletal system, then they don’t start feeling that pain, the joints have more life to them.” The worst back pain advice that many doctors are still giving. Most of us, when we injure ourselves, when we’re in pain, we think that what we need to do is just kind of rest. But now, we’re really starting to find that movement is actually the fastest route to healing in most cases. Emily’s Top 3 Stretches to Stop Back Pain. Neck and shoulders Doorway stretch, where you go into a doorway with your elbows on the side like goalposts, you lean the chest forward, and you hold for just 30 seconds. Then, you can work your elbows up a little bit, you can work them down. But you want to feel that stretch in the front of the chest. I try to tell people to remember to do it just three times a day. Get up for 30 seconds and stretch that out. Your core (your abdominal muscles, specifically the ones in the lower abdomen region) All you do is sit up really tall, and then you just lift one knee up and pull the belly in. And you lower it down and lift the other one up. That’s going to activate those lower abdominal muscles. You can do a marching movement; you can lift and hold. Your spine Try to move the spine in all six directions at least once a day. And so, that would be a forward bend, a back bend, side bend to the right, side bend to the left, and then a twist, and a twist. Stretching Tips You want to ease into it, because if you try to push too hard into a stretch, your body actually gives the opposite reaction of tensing up the muscles. Start in a stretch where you feel that edge, but you’re not feeling any pain, you’re not feeling horrible amounts of tension. And then using the breath, breathing in and out through the nose, actually has a very calming effect on the nervous system and it actually, if you think of your breath kind of communicating directly with your muscles, that will help the muscles start to release. Rather than pushing them into it, try to breathe into those muscles. You always want to hold a stretch for at least 30 seconds. That’s kind of like the magic timeframe, where if you hold for 30 seconds, that’s where you’re going to get the most bang for your buck. Anything less than 30 seconds, they’ve shown you don’t actually really increase your flexibility. Don’t Forget to Warm Up If you haven’t moved at all yet in the morning, absolutely, you can go into some gentle morning stretches, but don’t push the body if it’s the first thing you’re doing. If you’ve been moving around throughout your day, your body is kind of warmed up, and then you can go into it a little bit more.

Do You Really Need an Eye Cream? Why Your Eyes Can Look 20 Years Older Than the Rest of Your Face.

Did you know your eyes can look up to 20 years older than the rest of your face? This is due to those pesky concerns like dark circles and puffiness around the eye.
