Studying the cake


Toddlers are quite unpredictable when it comes to food. They may prefer a certain food one day and reject it the next. If you’re having trouble feeding your toddler, keep reading to see how you can solve this problem and ensure that your baby is getting the nutrition he needs to be healthy.


As your child crosses the age of one, their growth slows down in comparison to their first year. This is the time when they begin to feed themselves. Now they have the freedom to choose what they eat, giving them a certain amount of control over themselves.

At this stage, they develop multiple interests and learn new skills like walking, talking, and generally become more responsive. This is why they prefer sameness in this phase of rapid change. Toddlers feel comfortable and secure sticking to the same foods. Read more

Free Radicals: Damage to your Skin

 Free Radicals: Damage to your Skin


free radical 1


Our skin is an important part of our appearance, which is why we need to protect it as much as we can. If we understand what causes skin damage and aging, we will be able to prevent it more effectively. Free radicals are usually the primary culprits that damage our skin and make us look older. So we need to understand what free radicals are and how they damage our skin. Then we will discuss how the damage can be prevented.

Free Radicals – A Mystery


These metabolic by-products are highly charged oxygen molecules and are a result of oxidation. These unstable molecules are harmful for our skin and body. To help you better understand free radicals, here are a few examples:

  • Apples, peaches or avocados turn brown when cut
  • Iron rusts in air
  • Paint fades
  • Plastic deteriorates

If you have ever witnessed any of these happening, that means free radicals are at work here. Free radicals are extremely damaging to health and can lead to quick aging, cancer, stroke or other heart diseases.

Those who consume an unhealthy diet, smoke, drink excessive amounts of alcohol or are exposed to the sun for extended periods of time are more likely to have a greater amount of free radicals and suffer from skin damage and other diseases.

Antioxidants – The Solution


free radical 2


To neutralize the effect of free radicals, you need antioxidants. Antioxidants are beneficial nutrients like enzymes, vitamins and minerals that prevent or slow down the oxidation process. In neutralizing the effect of free radicals, antioxidants become oxidized themselves. Therefore, it is important to replenish your body regularly by consuming healthy food.


When you are young, your skin is elastic and supple. The firmness of the skin is a sign that it’s healthy. Free radicals break down elastin and collagen, connective fibers that keep the skin firm. This leads to wrinkles and the skin becomes rough and saggy.

In our youth, our body constantly produces antioxidants to fight the harmful effects of free radicals. However, as we age, our body’s tendency to produce antioxidants reduces. Antioxidants act as shields against damage and when the body cannot produce enough antioxidants, it affects our external and internal health adversely.

How to Get Your Antioxidants Back?


It is important to have a good amount of antioxidants in your body to remain healthy. To replenish your supply of antioxidants, make sure you eat a healthy and well-balanced diet. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables (especially green leafy ones) as they have an abundant supply of antioxidants in them. Eat nuts and whole grain foods also. Avoid processed foods like refined sugar, white flour, pasta and other unhealthy packaged products.

In addition to that, you can use moisturizing creams that contain antioxidants to repair damaged skin. Many creams are available in the market that contain aloe vera, peach and other natural extracts that can help keep the skin supple and delay the aging process.

You can also take antioxidant supplements to replace the loss of antioxidants in your body. These supplements will prevent further damage to your skin and health.

Look after your skin today and enjoy younger looking skin for years to come.

“Motivation” Road Sign with dramatic clouds and sky.

Ever complained to someone that you are “so busy” and don’t have any time to work out?

Have you ever had to listen to someone tell you how busy they are?

It is no secret that in this high tech world we live in, people are extremely busy.  Most of the time, our busy list is filled with activities that center on work, family, social, and entertainment activities.

And now technology makes it even easier for us to take our “jobs” with us everywhere we go.

Because of this, we fail to “make time” for our fitness routines. Working out goes straight to the bottom of our to-do list and we only get it done when we find the spare time, or motivation. Read more

We agree: no one really wants to live that way, but what can we do to develop solid muscle mass, and lose that excess fat? We are not talking about fad diets, weight-loss pills, or anything else that would be harmful to our bodies, or a balanced lifestyle. Read more

Women and Weights

Weight lifting can help women achieve the toned and sculpted feminine form they desire.  Most women know the benefits of a cardio workout.  Sweating on the treadmill, the elliptical, or the stationary bike burns calories, right?  That is true but it is not the only thing women should be doing in the gym.  According to the National Center for Health Statistics, a mere 21% of women strength train 2 or more times a week.
