What a wonderful time of year! Great food, a bit of the liquid Christmas cheer and more opportunities to indulge in the good stuff!
This is also a very good time of year to maintain a bit of thoughtful nutritional supplementation. A few nutrients to help steer clear of increasing insulin resistance, keep the metabolism moving in the direction of cardiovascular wellness and protective immune function.
I am not saying that an extra helping of pie, or sampling another chocolate is a bad thing at all…in fact celebrating is a very healthy part of living life to the full. All I’m saying is to not neglect the good nutritious food and keep up with your supplements…especially those that support heart health such as the nitric oxide precursors.
Exercise! You don’t want to look like Santa do you? It’s one thing to have a healthy laugh, however the bowl full of jelly looks better on the table than on your mid-section! Get out and take another walk! In fact, pull the kids away from their newest video games and go for a long walk!
Healthy integration of all we know that serves us is the balanced way to avoid the binge and an easier way to get a jump start (emphasis on the jumping!) before the mournful promises of New Year’s resolutions.
Remember the importance of keeping your blood moving. The importance of ‘shear effect’, the trigger that keeps the natural regulation of vascular wellness an ongoing process.
“Exercise increases the phenomena of shear stress in blood vessels. As the smaller vessels in the periphery open with exercise demand, the velocity of the blood increases, causing increased and beneficial shear stress. This increase signals the nitric oxide synthase process in the blood vessel endothelium or lining. Without exercise, one of the primary messages for turning on the nitric oxide factory is lost.” Symphony of Wellness, p. 82
Lack of exercise is the primary factor in the onset of diabetes. Not so much what you eat, however that of course is an important factor!
Keep moving! IN-JOY!
