What’s the main thing we all need to feel good?
With plenty of energy we function better and enjoy life more. Instead of dragging ourselves around, we bounce out of bed in the morning. We get twice as much work done — or more! We think more clearly and are better focused.
As we age, however, our energy decreases. All too often we become too pooped to pop.
Our memory falters, we slow down, our muscles get weaker.
And all too often disease starts to take its toll.
So how do we get more energy?
Well, a lot of us try to perk up with stimulants such as coffee or energy drinks. But all these do is rob Peter to pay Paul. They might give us a temporary boost, but it quickly wears off, leaving us more tired than ever.
The secret is to improve the health of our mitochondria.
What are mitochondria?
These tiny powerhouses are found inside every cell in our bodies, with the exception of red blood cells. Here are just a few of the things they do:
- Function as a digestive system in each cell
- Transform food and oxygen into energy
- Produce ATP (adenosine triphosphate)
- Generate chemical energy (similar to energy from a battery)
How can we improve the health of our mitochondria?
There are actually some things we can do to make our little powerhouses function better.
(If you have thyroid issues or other types of hormonal imbalances, or nutritional deficiencies, you may need to address those.)
Here are some other things that can help:
1. Eat fewer calories
Digestion takes a great deal of energy. Putting less stress on your digestive system will add years to your life and give you more energy to do other things.
A good rule of thumb is to stop eating before you’re full. Twenty minutes later, your brain will catch up to your stomach, and you won’t feel hungry.
It doesn’t have to be super strenuous, and in fact you’re better off with moderate exercise. Do some cardio and some resistance training three or four times a week. Try to incorporate more exercise into your daily life, such as parking farther away, using stairs rather than elevators, etc.
3. Eat Kare’s Micronized Purple Rice
The polysaccharides, polyphenols, and antioxidants in this powerful wellness product are the perfect fuel for your mitochondria. The polysaccharide sugars fuel the mitochondria with energy, polypeptides act as building blocks for healthy new cells, and antioxidants fight off free radicals.
