Milk Proteins Rock!

As you may already know, milk is an excellent source of vitamins and nutrients, particularly protein. There are two main proteins found in milk: whey and casein.

What are Antioxidants, and How can They Benefit You?

(Guest post by Darlene Mills — Thanks Darlene!)
How do Antioxidants Work?

A lot of antioxidants are being offered in the market, all of which boast of making your health and lifestyle better. But for starters, what exactly are antioxidants? These are substances and nutrients found in the food we eat which can prevent or at least slow down oxidative damage to our bodies. More precisely, they inhibit the process of oxidation in our bodies. This produces free radicals which can then start chain reactions – when these occur in a cell, it can cause damage and even death. What antioxidants do is to stop these chain reactions by getting rid of free radical intermediates and inhibiting other oxidation reactions. In a nutshell (and in less complicated terms), these antioxidants act as ‘free radical scavengers’ which exterminate these free radicals and prevent any damage caused by them.

Ectomorph Weight Gain Program – 3 Things I Did

Guest post by Jean Lam who has a passion for body building and exercising. During his spare time, he enjoys writing on health and fitness as well as sharing tips on this common question which is how can i lose weight.

Some people have a hard time gaining weight, notably ectomorphs. Ectomorphs in particular are very thin and due to their nature, no matter what they try to do, they can’t seem to get any bigger. More often than not, ectomorphs aren’t doing the right things to grow bigger. The truth is these people can definitely add weight to their thin body frames provided they adhere to certain rules. I still remember when I was a teenager…I was so skinny that sometimes I received negative remarks. This was kind of blessing in disguise because it encourages me to get bigger and allow me to discover that I have a passion for exercising and nutrition.
