Workout and Train Harder with Carbon 60™

We’ve all been there, either as an exercise novice or experienced athlete, the aches and pains that sets in after a workout. Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) is the soreness that you feel within 12 to 24 hours of your work out. It is thought that inflammation and free radicals play a role in this normal result of working out.

 

The inflammation occurs when microscopic tears in the muscle happen during
a new, challenging, or extreme workout. These tears cause inflammation and lead to free radical formation that result in the soreness we feel. For many athletes, and new comers to a fitness regimen, this is completely normal. Though these tears we are able to build new muscle and become stronger and closer to achieving our fitness goals.
As they say no pain no gain.

 

But that doesn’t help us the next day when we are struggling to walk up and down the stairs or push through another workout. Light exercise has been shown to help DOMS, it is only a short-term solution and you may be back to full soreness within the day.
As more science comes in, we are learning more and more about the way the free radicals interact with our bodies. One of the things coming to light is that free radicals affect our bodies in ways that range from DOMS to cancer. Science is also beginning to show that Carbon 60 is a superior anti-oxidant.

 

In the case of DOMS free radicals are one of the factors that create the tenderness, inflammation, and soreness we are so accustomed to after a hard day at the gym or a long run. By taking Carbon-60 Organic Sunflower Oil™, you can begin to reduce or eliminate your DOMS, and improve your workouts.

 

Our satisfied customers have said that after taking Carbon 60™ it has eliminated DOMS after workouts and reduced recovery time which allowed them to train harder and faster. Carbon-60™ has helped customers increase endurance and reduce run times without changing their training by only adding Carbon 60 Organic Sunflower Oil™.

Breaking Down the Science of Carbon 60

Happy Healthy CoupleRecently there has been a lot of research into anti-aging and disease prevention, and scientists have concluded that free radicals are a large contributing factor to our failing health. Not only do free radicals contribute to the process of aging; they are thought to contribute to a range of diseases including cancer and hardening of the arteries.

What is a free radical?

Scientifically, a free radical is a molecule that has an unpaired election. Since this molecule is always seeking balance it will give away its unpaired electron or take one from another molecule creating a chain reaction in nearby molecules. These rogue molecules can damage the membranes of cells, DNA, proteins, carbohydrates, and fats in our body’s.

We naturally produce free radicals just by being alive. Healthy activities such as running or strength training can create free radicals. Generally free radicals are kept in balance by anti-oxidants through foods that we eat. Unfortunately, the creation of free radicals is not limited to exercising.

Everyday we are exposed to a number of external influences that create free radicals in our body. Things like car exhaust, cigarette smoke, pesticides/herbicides, and radiation exposure create free radicals. In our modern life exposure to these things is not 100% avoidable.

Our bodies are always fighting the formation of free radicals from internal and external forces, but it can become overwhelmed. This overwhelming of the body’s natural defenses against free radicals is called oxidative stress. When we cannot keep up with the accumulation of free radicals, we can begin to decline in health.

What is an anti-oxidant?

As with most things health related, what we put in our bodies goes a long way to preventing diseases and old age discomforts. A recent study of food related anti-oxidants shows that eating unprocessed foods, which have more nutrients and vitamins, help to fight free radicals. Anti-oxidants are free radical scavengers in the body that donate electrons “attaching” to and preventing them from damaging the body further.

Perhaps more important, Carbon 60 has been shown to be an excellent; superior; non-toxic anti-oxidant. Adding a superior anti-oxidant like Carbon-60 Organic Sunflower Oil™ to your diet will help your body fight free radicals. Our proprietary process of creating and suspending single molecules of Carbon 60 in Sunflower Oil is solvent free making it safer than other carbon-60 products on the market. Because our perfected process produces single molecules of Carbon 60 they can repair much more free radical damage than other anti-oxidants.

Living Healthy with a Whole Food Diet and Carbon-60™ Organic Sunflower Oil

 

We all know that our health starts with what we put in our body. We have been told for years, eat low fat, eat more eggs, less eggs, more fiber—name a food and you’ve probably heard that you should or shouldn’t be eating it. These suggestions have left us so confused that we grab boxes off the shelf that say, “low fat” or “whole grain” thinking the contents will help us lead more healthy lives.

 

It turns out that we have been listening to the wrong guidelines. The science is in, and it looks like whole foods diet is the winner. Not to be confused with the large supermarket chain, this type of eating is all about ditching the processed foods in favor of the produce and the bulk sections.

 

The word ‘diet’ has so many negative connotations in the American vernacular. When we say whole foods diet, we mean changing the way you eat. Not for a short period, not until you lose five pounds, but changing the way you eat— what your diet actually consists of.

 

Currently the average American diet consists of a high amount of grains and processed foods. All that turns into too much sugar and salt in our diets, can lead to health problems down the road, explains Dr. Arash Tirandaz, an internist on the medical staff at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano:

“Too much sugar can cause insulin resistance, obesity and diabetes. Salt can cause water gain and high blood pressure, which can lead to heart failure, heart attack and stroke.”

 

Many of these ailments are in the top ten leading causes of death for Americans. Changing the way we eat, what we put into our bodies, and our relationship with food could prevent many of the illnesses that are killing us every day.

 

For this diet you have to think outside the box, literally. Instead of heading straight for the aisles at the grocery store, where boxes and cans are filled with added sugars and salts, head to the produce section. You can swap things like microwavable ready-to-eat taco meat for raw meat and homemade taco seasoning. You can add more fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and legumes. Try to make as much as you can from scratch rather than making food from a box or bag.

 

In addition to eating healthier whole foods, adding Carbon-60™ Organic Sunflower Oil to your diet, provides the extra benefits of providing your body with superior anti-oxidants that can help fight the free radicals that cause many health problems. Just a 2/3 milliliter dose a day can result in a significant change in your health. It can be taken straight from the bottle or replace any oil you normally use in your food preparation.

 

At Carbon-60™ we take the extra time processing our Carbon 60 molecules. We have engineered a proprietary process to make our Carbon-60 from scratch. We use only pure Carbon 60 molecules and quality organic sunflower oil to suspend it. We know what you put into your body is important, and Carbon-60 Organic Sunflower Oil™ can help get rid of the free radicals that have accumulated from too much salt and sugar in your diet.

How to Make Your Fitness Stick

Every morning when many of us look in the mirror we see something we want to improve. Whether it’s our shape, tone, or getting rid of love handles. Often this dissatisfaction leads to us down the road to vague goals of “getting fit” or “losing weight” and we grumble our way to a gym membership. Thanks to television and movies we have ideas of what strength training and exercise should look like, but for many people the reality doesn’t match the perception. We become discouraged when we can’t lift, run, or last as long as we think we should. We start to compare ourselves to the more physically fit of the gym goers and become discouraged in ourselves and stop going. 

This is the wrong mindset, to say the least.

Whenever we start a new project, hobby, or exercise regimen, we should only be comparing ourselves to ourselves. How long were we able to run last week? How much weight did I add over the last month? What strides forward have I taken compared to when I first started? These are the only comparisons we should be having as you begin a fitness journey.

The other common mistake is not having a reason. Having a goal like, “getting fit” is fine to start, but it won’t keep you going because there is no way to measure your progress. This is where SMART goals come in handy.

S - specific, significant, stretching
M - measurable, meaningful, motivational
A - agreed upon, attainable, achievable, acceptable, action-oriented
R - realistic, relevant, reasonable, rewarding, results-oriented
T - time-based, time-bound, timely, tangible, trackable

An example would be, “Be able to run a 5k marathon in three months with my kids.” or “Improve my blood pressure to prevent heart attacks.” Both of these fall into the SMART goal category because they are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and trackable. By creating this kind of a goal, rather than vague unspecific goals, you can feel motivated to keep going every time you reach a new mile stone. This will also allow you to create new goals and milestones after you have reached your initial goal.

The other thing that prevents people from moving forward on their fitness journey is the idea that they need to do a specific type of exercise to become healthy. If you don’t like running but try to run on the treadmill every time you work out you’ll quickly stop going at all. The idea is to find types of exercise that you enjoy doing. If you’re finding yourself unmotivated to work out by yourself, try going with a friend, or see if fitness classes are more your thing. If you hate the free weights, see if you like the weight machines better. The best form of exercise is the one you will do. Keep trying new classes, weights, groups, friends, until you find the right fit that will keep you motivated and keep you going.

The other thing that will help on your fitness journey is Carbon-60 Organic Sunflower Oil™.

As you work out you create free radicals, which in turn, create oxidative stress on your body. You feel this stress in the form of Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS), lack of endurance, and a slow increase in the amount of weight you are training with. Carbon-60 Organic Sunflower Oil™ can help fight these free radicals, which will help to increase your endurance, relieve or eliminate DOMS, and help you lift more weight more quickly. Let, Carbon-60 Organic Sunflower Oil™ be part of your fitness goals. Don’t wait… Buy your bottle today!

Exercise for Better Health

We’re constantly looking for ways to feel better, live longer, and improve memory. We jump from one fad diet to the next, or take up the newest and most exciting exercise. In other words, we are in a constant battle to find ways to improve our health. That is why we pick up gym memberships in January, making vows to workout and improve our overall heath. But we struggle, which is why we also cancel those same memberships in February.

Improving our health does not have to be the struggle we make it out to be. The American Heart Association suggests 30 minutes a day of exercise. If you haven’t been exercising, or are just starting this may seem like a daunting number to achieve, but any amount of physical activity will start to improve your health. If you are struggling look at 30 minutes as a goal to work to, not a place to start.

By getting your heart pumping you will be improving your mental health, reducing anxiety and depression, and helping to manage stress. Beginning a regular exercise regimen will also help prevent or manage high blood pressure, prevent bone loss, and improve sleep. Working to prevent many old age aliments now, rather than managing them later, will improve your quality of life in the present and in the future.

There are many things that age our bodies, and no amount of exercise can prevent them. As we age our bodies create more free radicals, or molecules that have unpaired electrons. These molecules can damage our cells creating oxidative stress, which can trigger many human diseases. This is where Carbon-60 comes in. This innovative carbon molecule can attach to these free radicals rendering them harmless. Carbon-60 is then passed through the body, leaving you feeling better with fewer free radicals to slow you down.

Start your journey to better heath by using Carbon-60 Organic Sunflower Oil™ to help remove free radicals and reduce oxidative stress on your body. Don’t wait! Order your bottle today to start feeling better now!

Back Pain Relief Tips to Try While You’re Sleeping

If you’re living with frequent and constant back pain then life can be a challenge. Not only are you constantly uncomfortable, but it can distract you from work, home, family and even keep you from doing the things you really love. To top it all off, back pain can keep you from getting any sleep let alone a ‘good night’s rest’.

Often times when you have back pain you’ll cath yourself tossing and turning at night, continually waking up to adjust your body so the pain is bearable. Below are a few useful tips to ease your discomfort of night time back pain and discomfort:

Consider Stretching Before You Climb into Bed

Stretching allows your muscles to release toxins that would otherwise sit in your muscles causing tightening and soreness. Stretching your back with basic stretching exercises or certain back exercises, given to you by a physician, can help it stay relaxed through the night. Starting with relaxed back muscles will help to keep your back pain at ease while you’re sleeping.

 

Put a Pillow Under Your Pelvis

Is sleeping on your stomach the only way you find comfortable to fall asleep or stay asleep?  If so, this could be causing a lot of your night time back pain. This position can be very hard for your back and stressful on the muscles that cause your back pain. If you do need to sleep on your stomach, consider using a pillow under your pelvis to help keep your spine in it’s proper curve. The placing of a pillow under your pelvis/stomach area can relieve the stress and tension in your lower back.

 

Try Sleeping with a Pillow Between Your Legs

The majority of people sleep on their side, be it left or right, this can have a negative effect on your spine. The reasoning behind this is that while sleeping on your side you are not giving the upper leg the support it needs, thus twisting the spine when the knee and the thigh inevitably fall forward to the mattress. Fortunately, putting a pillow between your upper to mid legs while sleeping can help to ease the back pain caused by the lack of support. Many people find this an easy fix and highly beneficial to easing and/or eliminating back pain while sleeping.

 

It May Be Time for a New Mattress

This could be the bad news, but many times the cause for your night back pain is a bad mattress. WebMD notes that if you have the budget, investing in a new mattress with greater back support can work wonders on your chronic back pain. The ideal mattress will keep your spine in a position similar to if you were standing straight up. Testing out a variety of mattresses is a great way to find the best fit for you, keeping in mind that a medium to firm mattress is usually the most beneficial to helping back support. Unfortunately, buying a new mattress is not always a plausible option. In this case try to find a mattress topper that may create more firm mattress to support your back during sleep.
