These are some basic guidelines for beginning a fitness program based upon your age.
We've said it many times, but we will say it again:
"Make certain to contact a physician before beginning any fitness program."

Man. Innovator. Bodybuilder. Friend.
A pioneer in women's fitness.
Contact your physician before taking any supplements, herbs, or vitamins. Not to freak you out...but once in a while, a few of these can provide unpleasant side effects if mixed with certain medications.
The new superfruit for losing weight is Maqui Berry, after being highlighted by FOX News Channel medical contributor Dr. Manny Alvarez and Food Network Celebrity Chef Rachael Ray on her national TV show
A recent study from researchers at the University of Texas (Austin), 500 women and men who were looking to lose between 10 and 40 pounds supplemented with either Maqui Berry or Acai Berry for six months. At the end of the trial period, researchers discovered that those taking Maqui Berry lost 400% more weight than those taking Acai Berry.
The purple berry is found in Chile's Patagonian rainforests. It has the highest levels of a powerful fat-burning nutrient called anthocyanins of any known food on earth. In fact research shows Maqui Berry contains over 10 times more anthocyanins than any other known food source
Benefits: Highest antioxidant berry/fruit in the world; Boosts strength and stamina; Supports healthy aging; Neutralizes free radicals; Excellent source of vitamin C, calcium, iron and potassium; Increases energy levels; Anti-inflammatory activity; Protects LDL from oxidation; Strengthens bones and joints; Clears skin and helps protect against sun damage.
Niacin causes your capillaries (small blood vessels) in your body to get wider (bigger). The capillaries are usually extremely small and blood passes through them very slowly. The inherent problem with this is that capillaries are the main way for your body to rid itself of toxins. Your arteries, in comparison, are much larger than capillaries and can carry more blood and at a faster rate, but they do not come near the majority of your body.
Arteries are the "highways" of your body and capillaries are more like the small town road that you exit off of the highway from in order to get to your house. Your house, in this example, would be a cell somewhere in a remote part of your body that is full of toxins.
Without sufficient blood flow (oxygen, and everything that comes along with it), this cell cannot rid itself of its' toxins. Now, imagine your city widening the road that leads by your house -- the traffic would increase right and they would probably increase the speed limit from 25 to say 45 or 50 right? Well, the same is true for your capillaries! They will carry more blood, and at a faster rate. The end result is that your cells now have more blood to rid themselves of toxins throughout your body as the capillaries get wider!
How does this relate to niacin flush, you ask? Simple. Niacin causes the capillaries to get bigger, and the end result is the "flush". The increase in size of your capillaries causes, in some cases, a redness on your skin in the areas that it is occurring. This is the first part of niacin flush.
The second reaction of niacin flush is the annoying, and sometimes painful itch that comes along with it. This itch is actually healthy! The reason you are experiencing this itch is because the niacin has allowed more blood to reach your cells to remove toxins from them.
As toxins are carried away and your cell becomes healthier, it is finally able to "call" your body for help! Your body responds by sending what is called a histamine to the cell. Histamines cause you to itch, but they also allow your body to send more water, blood, and nutrients to the area that called them.
To sum it all up, the niacin flush is actually a very healthy reaction from your body from taking in niacin! You shouldn't be alarmed when you get it...actually you should feel the very opposite way...It means your body is healing itself.
You'll notice that after your body adjusts to a certain dosage of niacin that eventually you will not receive the niacin flush any longer. Once you up the dosage, you may experience it again.
Carnosine is a powerful nutrient. Proteins are the building blocks of life. As we age, however, critical proteins are endangered by the damaging process known as glycation. Defined as a non-enzymatic reaction between proteins and sugars, glycation irreversibly alters the configuration of proteins. These altered proteins, known as advanced glycation end products (AGEs), can no longer effectively fulfill their critical roles throughout the body. AGEs have been implicated in many of the diseases associated with aging, including Alzheimer’s, cancer, and heart disease.
While AGEs are destructive in their own right, their interplay with free radicals causes even more havoc in the aging human body. Because Carnosine is able to both stop the oxidative damage of free radicals and inhibit AGE formation, scientists have postulated that carnosine may have applications in the management of numerous conditions, including arthritis, stomach and duodenal ulcers, high blood pressure, adrenal cortical dysfunction, sleep apnea, chronic inflammation, cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Carnosine plays a part in neurotransmission, it is a heavy metal binder (chelates ionic metals) and modulates enzymatic activities.
Further experiments are in progress, aimed at examining more widely the effects of carnosine on human aging. Those who want to be at the forefront of innovative antiaging medicine should he taking carnosine now. It is expected that carnosine supplementation will become much more widespread during the next five years, making carnosine as popular as vitamin E is today.
