Milk thistle

Top 7 benefits of Milk thistle

Milk thistle, scientific name Silybum marianum, has been used medicinally for over 2,000 years, most commonly for the treatment of liver and gallbladder disorders.

Here are the top 7 benefits

  • Liver detoxification

Naturally reversing the harmful effects of alcohol consumption, pesticides in our food supply, heavy metals in our water supply, pollution in the air we breathe in, and even poisons

  • Protects against cancer

Milk thistle seeds are a high source of the antioxidant flavonoid called silymarin. Silymarin is associated with decreasing the risk for cancer development by boosting the immune system, fighting DNA damage, and reversing cancerous tumor growth

  • Lowers high cholesterol

It helps lower high cholesterol levels by lowering inflammation, cleaning the blood and preventing oxidative stress damage within the arteries

  • Controls or prevents diabetes

The valuable effect of antioxidants found in milk thistle has been reported in experimental and clinical studies to help decrease blood sugar levels in insulin-resistant patients

  • Prevents gallstones

It purify the body of metabolic waste, thereby regulating the function of the gall bladder, in addition to the kidneys and spleen

  • Boosts skin health

It is considered to be a potent inhibitor of UV-induced oxidative stress that can cause skin diseases like skin cancer

  • Has anti-aging effects

Because milk thistle’s antioxidants help prevent free radical damage throughout the body, and remove pollutants and waste from the blood and digestive tract, it can actually slow the aging process – both on the surface of your skin and also within your organs

Omega-3 for weight loss

Supplementing with omega-3 fish oil results in weight loss

Omega-3 fish oil supplementation has been shown to be effective for promoting not only weight loss but also fat loss and belly fat loss in various trials; dosages have ranged from 300 mg to 1.8 grams daily of EPA+DHA. The addition of omega-3 fatty acids to an exercise program also boosts fat loss potential. This begs the question: does combining omega-3 fatty acid supplementation with both diet and exercise provide even more significant results? The answer is YES!!

In a short 3-week clinical trial, people who combined 2.8 grams daily of omega-3 fatty acid supplementation (2:1 ratio of EPA to DHA) with both balanced diet and regular exercise experienced a 1.5 kg (3.3 lb) greater weight loss compared to those consuming a placebo, following a calorie-restricted diet, and exercising. Therefore, supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids can improve body composition but combining supplementation with diet and exercise further accelerates the weight/fat loss process.

Healthy Joints

Glucosamine is a naturally occurring chemical found in the human body. It is in the fluid that is around joints.
People take glucosamine hydrochloride by mouth for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, glaucoma, a jaw disorder called temporomandibular disorder (TMD), joint pain, back pain, and weight loss.
Glucosamine in the body is used to make a “cushion” that surrounds the joints. In osteoarthritis, this cushion becomes thinner and stiff. Taking glucosamine as a supplement might help to supply the materials needed to rebuild the cushion.
Research shows that regular exercise helps to reduce the chronic inflammation associated with arthritis and can even increase your pain tolerance. Exercise also strengthens the muscles around the joint and increases blood flow to the joint, two things that can minimize discomfort
Joint pain and Pilates go hand in hand because one of the biggest benefits of the exercise is the ability for it to strengthen muscles and increase joint flexibility. If you have joint pain, you probably think you can’t exercise because it would cause further injury or cause you to feel more pain during and after the exercise. That is not the case with Pilates’ low impact and low intensity workouts

Perfect 10 Pilates Team

Pilates for Men

While women tend to dominate Pilates classes, Pilates holds plenty of benefits for men who rise to the challenge—yes, it’s hard. Whether you’re a power lifter or prepping for your first marathon, a Pilates class can help fine-tune your performance. How? Exercises are made up of subtle, concentrated movements that can help you do the following:

– Develop often neglected muscle groups. Some of your muscles, like those that dominate your daily movements, are stronger than others, and a big part of Pilates is focusing on those muscles that don’t typically get a lot of attention. Pilates is similar to MAT training in that you consciously move in certain ways to build muscles that you don’t hit while lifting.

– Improve flexibility. In general, the more muscle mass you have, the less flexible you are. But Pilates’ focus on stretching helps prevent injuries and muscle strains, and increases range of motion.

– Build core strength. Every Pilates exercise focuses on using your core to power movement in your limbs. Pilates also hits your transverse abdominal, the base abs muscle under your six-pack.

– Live more consciously. Pilates forces you to pay attention—you’ve got to focus on your breath while working through each movement and concentrating on proper form.

Pilates and TRX

 

Pilates exercise is great for building kinesthetic awareness and teaching basic movement patterns.

Using TRX  with a “Pilates-frame of reference,” creates a delicious, dynamic, functional training workout that is exhilarating and incomparable.

Cross-training with the TRX Suspension equipment and Pilates-based movements, can lead to better muscular balance and joint stability.  This is due to the fact that Pilates with the use of TRX emphasizes the body’s natural ability to move in three anatomical planes of motion.

Quite a few people erroneously equate strength training with gyms, weights and bodybuilding. Challenge them with a Pilates sequence using the TRX and eyes will be opened to a new world of bodywork. Pilates and Pilates-based movements make a great choice for creating adaptive training workouts that build strength with length and flexibility.
