Doug Grant is known as “The Formulator” and has made SUCH A BIG difference in my life in terms of testing and supplements. I mean, who knew that you’re actually supposed to FEEL your supplements when you take them?! Lol I didn’t – and never did, until I started taking his. They are such high quality supplements that I can actually FEEL the difference when I take them. I feel more alert, more energized, more focused. Not in a caffeine way…but just an extra edge in your performance. Come to find out, a lot of the supplements we can find out there (even if from a “good natural brand”) are synthetics and make it hard for our body to even use – if it even can!
Cortisol often gets a really bad wrap as just the bad belly fat stress hormone. BUT…cortisol is NOT a bad thing. Cortisol is actually a good thing…when it’s controlled properly and is doing the job it is supposed to do. When you’re producing the right amount at the right times, cortisol can also improve our energy, acts as an anti-inflammatory, helps with memory, helps to manage blood sugar and blood pressure, helps decrease pain, and increases motivation. It also helps with our immune system and brain function.
Did you know that approximately 10 million Americans have Osteoporosis and another 44 million have low bone density? In women, the incidence of low bone density is greater than that of heart attack, stroke, and breast cancer combined! BUT…it IS totally possible to prevent and actually, prevention is the best place to be!
I’ve got Cynthia Thurlow on today to talk all about Intermittent Fasting with us – from how to do it to the benefits to all the ins and outs. She has changed not only her OWN life with intermittent fasting, but has changed the lives of sooo many. This is SUCH an important topic for midlife women, and while it’s not a new concept, it’s necessary in our modern day lifestyle.
I found Laura on Instagram and fell in love with the way she is living and walking the walk I am constantly sharing about. She is in her 50s and is doing ALL of the things as if age is NOT a factor (because it’s not!) Everyone always says “just wait until you turn 50!” right? But what the heck happens at 50?! Laura set out to document the process as she approached the age. And while there ARE some things that DO change at 50, it’s not doomsday like we believed it would be.
