Ensure a Sickness-Free Year With These 6 Habits

Credit One of the greatest blessings anyone can have is living a healthy life. But the abundance of sicknesses and diseases in the world today makes it almost a difficult task. The outbreak of both curable and incurable diseases which are all expensive to deal with is a real problem. But just like the saying goes, prevention is still better than cure. Our habits like they say will either make or mar us. These six habits below are inexpensive and will help you keep all those diseases at bay. 1. Fill up your Styrofoam cup with water more often than not To have a sickness free year, take less of alcohol and much more water. Doctors recommend a minimum of eight to ten glasses of water a day. Taking healthy amounts of water detoxifies the body. It also maintains normal bowel functions, prevents dehydration and exhaustion, enhances nutrients flow and keeps diseases at bay. 2. Love sweat, hate fat Whether it is going to the gym or just routine stretches early in the morning, any form of exercise does a lot of good to your body. The idea is not to build muscles, as muscles don't necessarily keep us healthy. Exercise and workouts however, helps prevent cardiovascular diseases as well as reduce body fat. They also help to increase stamina and energy levels. Exercising regularly is equally an effective way to maintain body weight and decrease tension. In fact, it has even been said to increase memory and clarity of thinking. You don't necessarily need to work your triceps so hard at t...

Recently, we have shown that n-butylidenephthalide (BP) improves human adipose-derived stem cell (hADSC) engraftment via attenuated reactive oxygen species (ROS) production. This prompted us to investigate whether remote transplantation of BP-pretreated hADSCs confers attenuated LVH at an est...

It is widely accepted that heart failure risk is increased in diabetic patients even after adjusting for coronary artery disease and hypertension. Mitochondria are the center of fatty acid (FA) and glucose metabolism and thus are likely to be impacted by impaired metabolism associated with diabetes. Although the cause of this increased heart failure risk is multifactorial, increasing evidence points toward...
