James's Top Health Tips

An Apple a Day Keeps the Toxins Away
Apples contain peptin which acts like a sponge that helps to absorb all the toxins in our bodies, and helps remove any junk in the lining of our digestive tracts

There is Gold at the End of That Rainbow
By eating a rainbow of fruits and vegetables every day you have a golden opportunity to live a longer and healthier life. By adding generous amounts of different colored fruits and veggies to your daily diet you are likely to reduce your risk of chronic diseases like Stroke, Heart Disease, Some types of Cancer, Type 2 Diabetes, and High Blood Pressure.

Use Those Cheeks for Something Other Then Sitting
Getting exercise doesn’t mean you need to become a workout-a-holic; it means incorporate some kind of physical activity into your daily routine. Choose the stairs over riding an elevator when possible and park your car far out in the parking lot instead of next to the door so you have to walk. Also go for a short walk on your lunch break after you’ve eaten and then a longer walk or bike ride after dinner.

Get a Good Night Sleep
I know it may seem like there are never enough hours in the day to get everything done but sleep isn’t one of the things you should give up. Our bodies need sleep to rebuild, fight of disease, and stay young. Recent studies have linked the lack of quality daily sleep to Memory Loss, Dementia and even Alzheimer, not to mention other health problems like Hypertension, Heart Disease, and Stroke

Nuts are Good for Cardiovascular Health
A handful of nuts is a tasty treat that helps in lowering cholesterol. Nuts are high in monounsaturated fat, which lowers LDL "bad" cholesterol while leaving HDL "good" cholesterol intact. Several studies show that people who eat about an ounce of nuts a day have lower risk of heart disease. Nuts are high in fat and calories, so only eat a handful. And make sure they're not covered in sugar or chocolate.

Look to the Sea for a Healthy Heart
Fish is low in saturated fat and high in healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids help lower levels of trigylcerides, a type of fat in the blood. They may also help lower cholesterol, slowing the growth of plaque in arteries. Go for fatty fish, such as salmon, tuna, trout, and sardines. Just don't drop the filets in the deep fryer – you'll negate the health benefits.
