If you’ve ever had a shock and felt the adrenaline surge in your body then you’ve felt cortisol. It’s a wake-you-up, get-you–ready-for-action hormone.
It really is. It hits its lowest point around midnight, so you can go to sleep, and then peaks again about an hour after you’ve gotten up in the morning, getting you to wake up and get ready for the day.
It’s nick-named the “stress hormone” because it’s released in moments of stress. So in a dangerous situation, or if you get scared suddenly, you’ll feel it.

Our diets have changed drastically in the last fifty years, from the types of foods we eat, but much more from the amount of processing these foods now undergo, changing them on a molecular level into something our bodies barely recognize.
And they can be fixed. Continue reading to learn how...

If you don’t wake up feeling bright in the morning, suffer from the usual “afternoon crash,” or generally feel sleepy, you’re not alone. According to a recent survey, only 16% of Americans feel bright and awake every day.

Supplemental molecular hydrogen, also known as H2, is becoming increasingly popular for many health concerns due to its effective and safe action as a targeted antioxidant.
And while everyone can benefit from H2, it is particularly beneficial for athletes. Not only can it improve VO2 max levels, but it also helps to reduce muscle fatigue, helps maintain peak performance for longer and speeds healing of soft-tissue injuries.
Today we’re going to dive deeper into how and why H2 affects athletic performance.

Today we're going to talk about one of the biggest perceived reasons it is hard to be healthy: the cost of healthy food.
And yes, I said "perceived" – because the cost of food does not have to be a barrier. Almost anyone can turn a diet around without paying more for your food – and in fact, will end up saving money in the long run.
