New York Times (June 16) has another good write up on the benefits of physical work out for brain. It explains how runners’ brains contain high levels of ketones, which are a byproduct of the breakdown of fat, thus highlighting that physical work out is good food for the brain.

MNT in one of its latest bulletins also underlines the importance of daily workout, even for 15 minutes, especially for the elderly. Fifteen minutes of daily exercise is associated with a 22% lower risk of death and may be a reasonable target for older adults, according to Dr David Hupin, a physician in the Department of Clinical and Exercise Physiology, University Hospital of Saint-Etienne in Saint-Etienne, France.

Earlier MNT had quoted one  research, carried out at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Massachusetts, supporting the findings regarding the benefits of whole grains and its positive impact on lifespan.

According to the Whole Grains Council, whole grain food contains "all the essential parts and naturally occurring nutrients of the entire grain seed." Examples of whole grains include barley, corn, quinoa, rice, rye, and wheat. Whole grains naturally contain complex carbohydrates and a raft of beneficial vitamins and minerals, including selenium potassium, and magnesium; also, whole grains have minimal fat content.

From the point of beautiful appearance, Herbally Radiant has been promoting healthy food and regular workout for everyone, This is as important for maintaining good looks and overall impressive appearance as use of natural skin care products in lieu of products made from harsh chemical ingredients.

Although  we get most of our nutrition orally, the skin ingests nutrients as well.  In fact, unlike the food we chew and swallow, which is broken down in the stomach before it is absorbed, creams and lotions applied to the skin bypass the digestive process, and go full strength directly into the bloodstream. Like all ingested substances, they become raw material for building new body tissue – or they become potent toxic waste.  HerballyRadiant therefore always advises its customers : Think of your beauty products not as cosmetics, but as food. If you cannot eat it, do not impose it on your skin.

Thus, beauty and brain in a healthy body go together. Therefore, healthy balanced diet, regular work out and going in for the skin-friendly beauty products should be an integrated approach in any beauty care regime.
