Green Tea & Fat Oxidation

A human study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows findings that a purified extract of green tea may increase energy expenditure and increase fat oxidation by 33%.
The World Health Organization estimates that by 2015, there will be more than 1.5 billion overweight people adding to healthy costs above $117 billion per year. This is just in the US alone.
Green tea has been studied intensely for a little while now and the focus has been on the compound epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). The three ways they are studying EGCG to help with weight loss is with increased energy metabolism and fat oxidation, inhibit fat cell development, or reduce lipid absorption and increase your fat excretion.
Some scientists have reported that caffeine must also be present for EGCG to be beneficial to weight loss.
Research that was performed in collaboration with researchers from the University of Medicine Berlin confirm that there is a link between caffeine and EGCG. Though they also found that both compounds produce similar effects by themselves.
When tested a daily dose of 300mg of EGCG, which is in each serving of Prograde Metabolism produced a 33% increase in fat oxidation, while a daily dose of 200mg of caffeine also in a single serving of Prograde Metabolism produced a 34.5% increase.
When both compounds were combined the fat oxidation increased by almost 50% according to the scientists.
The results produced with the combination of EGCG and caffeine may be related to the time that each compound remains in the blood stream. EGCG remains in your blood for about 2 hours after ingestion and caffeine remains in your blood stream for about 4 hours.
This is beneficial because it helps with both early and late postprandial fat oxidation. This is also why Prograde Metabolism is suggested to be taken in the morning and then again in the mid-afternoon so that your fat oxidation can be potentially elevated all day long.
Other studies have supported this evidence and Dr. Josh Lambert at Penn State states that human intervention studies indicate that consumption of tea might promote weight loss, help maintain body weight following weight loss and prevent the development of some diseases associated with obesity such as diabetes and fatty liver disease.
Prograde Metabolism was created based off of scientific evidence such as this so that you consume the therapeutic levels needed to increase your fat oxidation and successfully lose weight and keep it off.
Prograde Metabolism contains the same amount of EGCG and caffeine used in this study and other studies that produced a 49% increase in fat oxidation. That means increased weight loss for you. Combined with the other powerful ingredients such as capsaicain and cinnamon Prograde Metabolism is a metabolic powerhouse designed using quantities proven through research such as the research study above to produce successful weight loss.

The Benefits of Regular Massage Sessions

Once people discover the many joys and benefits of massage, a common question arises—“How often should I schedule my massage sessions?”

Of course, there is no set answer, but studies indicate that massage at regular intervals is most beneficial to your overall health.

In a Newsweek article entitled “The Magic of Touch,” the advantages of frequent massage are considered. The following excerpts help to answer the question, “How often?”

“A weekly massage may seem an indulgence, but new research suggests it can have major health benefits...

“Since instituting a program of massage, job-specific exercises and ergonomics in 1990, the Virginia-based company [Wampler Foods] has cut repetitive-stress injuries by 75 percent...

Simple Steps to Spring Forward Toward Fitness

Daylight savings time is a sure reminder that spring is just around the corner and there WILL eventually be an end to the winter weather. And while much of the country still dealing with bitter cold, here in Houston, we’re definitely ready for the warmer days. In fact, this is the time of year when you’ll find many of us increasing our outdoor activities and all too often push ourselves a little too hard. Unfortunately, what can result is often a few days of painful recovery time.

So, I've got a short list of suggestions to consider as you pursue your favorite warm-weather pastimes this season:

First, increase your activity level gradually— Pay attention to your body’s signals so you can avoid serious injury and don’t have to pay the painful price of overindulgence. Start slowly and do a little more each day and you’ll be up to speed in no time.

Warm up— Plunging into activity before you get your body warmed and ready is inviting potential trouble. Avoid possible sprains, torn liga…

Not tonight… I've got a headache.

Headaches… the perfect way to ruin a romantic rendezvous. No? With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I thought I would talk about headaches and suggest ways to prevent this trouble maker from ruining not only your love life, but your daily life, too.

According to Web MD, 30 to 80% of the adult Americans suffer from occasional tension headaches. Some of these may have hereditary causes, while others can be caused by lifestyle or environment, such as poor posture, unhealthy eating habits, a high stress job, or a demanding home life. Any combination of stress-inducing factors could become the trigger, really.

That said, massage therapy may be your best secret weapon to keep headaches at bay. At the very least, massage therapy can help you deal with the pain while you determine the best approach to maneuvering through the mitigating factors that might be causing your headaches.

But don’t just take my word for it…
