How to Stay Young and Healthy

The other day I watched a really interesting BBC document about how to stay young and more specifically how to prevent dementia and Alzheimer's disease. As you get older your brains begin to shrink. As a result of this your cognitive skills diminish. How to prevent this? The key is to use your brains on a daily basis. More specifically scientists have discovered that learning a new language has the most efficient way to prevent dementia because learning will increase the size of your brain. According to these scientists other important ways to affect the size of your brain were


  • reading
  • exercising in general
  • learning a new skill, such as playing guitar
  • studying

In the document researches investigated whether regular walks or ping poll plays had an effect on the brain tissue. The test groups walked or played ping poll for 2 hours per week. The results revealed that both test groups gained positive effects on their brain tissue because of their increased exercise. Moreover, their cognitive skills imporoved and in general their mood was better. Some persons reported that they felt more alive and alert.

Also food played an important role in preventing diseases. The document investigated a Japanese village called Okinowa where the most healthiest people on earth happen to live. People in this village had 50% less dementia and 80% Alzheimer's disease than Western people. What did these people eat? They ate a lot of

  • purple sweet potatoe
  • red grapes
  • red cabbage
  • blackcurrants
  • blackberries

These foods have in common that they include anthocyanins. Read more in here.




Other interesting study which I came across was a study which examined the most important factor how to age better. This factor is not a gym membership or relationships, rather according to this study living a purposeful life will give you more years to live. This sounds convincing, if you feel like you have a purpose in life, you will enjoy your life and live to the fullest.

Lastly one fact which is constantly linked to living healthy and long is to have an ideal weight. This means not too much or not too little fat tissue. If you want to find your ideal weight and want help with your diet, check my Healthy Eating Basic program.  In this program you will learn how to eat right and find a balance in your eating habits.

Until next time,

  2. It's informative, the first time I read that learning new languages increases brain size.

    If someone would ask me what the most considerable wealth is, I'd say "Health." There is no life without great health.

    Living a healthy life starts with eating good & organic food. Eating fruits in daily life is the best way to avoid many diseases, and living a happy stress-free life.

    But the problem is that the young generation is not following this rule. Whenever I see millennials eating unhealthy food like donuts, pizza, potato chips, etc. I felt bad.

    It's a duty of wise people (like you) to guide other people about how important eating good food to life is.

    Last night I was reading about a fruit "Moringa." It's a plant which cultivated in the sub-Himalayan areas of Pakistan, India, and other neighboring countries.

    Pure moringa powder is the best when it comes to boosting your immune system.

    I'm sharing here some other health benefits of using moringa powder regularly:

    1- It controls the blood sugar level
    2- Lower the cholesterol level
    3- Reduce joint inflammation
    4- Make your bones more strong
    5- Good for heart diseases
    6- Good for stomach diseases
    7- Increases breast milk production

    So it's essential to eat right and organic food if you want to live a long happy life.

    Anyhow, Jennikatja your work is great. We need to promote these kinds of articles so that more and more people could learn the benefits of eating good food.

    Keep guiding people. I wish you success.

  3. Thanks for your lovely comment! I agree with you that I also feel a bit bad when I see young people eating unhealthy food. They don't realize the damage that food does to their body in the long-run if they consume these daily.

  4. In my point of view, you should make products of the soil a piece of each dinner. Put the natural products on your oat. Eat vegetables as a bite. Get screening tests. There are various significant screening tests that can help ensure against disease. I Hope, all this work for you. Weight loss For Women Over 50

But caffeine does so much more than just keeping you awake.It’s a central nervous system stimulant that affects your body in numerous ways. So, let's talk about this and why drinking coffee might not be good for for you.

5 Effective Weight Loss Drinks

When it comes to losing weight, there is a lot of different kinds of detox packages and weight loss drinks available. However, I would not recommend using these products because they only offer short term benefits if any benefits at all. Instead I encourage to use a weight loss method which is sustainable. Usually this is acquiring healthy eating and exercising habits for life. You can achieve this by following my Nutrition Programme.

Surely different starter kits, such as detox kits and ready to eat soup diets may come in handy but eventually when you have lost some weight, you should opt for methods which offer permanent results. Therefore, in this post I will share with you 5 effective weight loss drink recipes. I would like to remind you that drinking these drinks are not your only diet.  On the contrary, these are recommended beside your healthy meals and these healthy drinks could replace your other sugary sodas and juices..Besides they are also healthy and delicious too.

Why Are Cola Drinks So Addictive?

Did you know that in Argentina people drink the most soft drinks in the world? Their annual consumption is 155 liters per capita.  Not far behind is number two, the USA with 154 liters per capita. Americans are one of the largest consumers of the soda drinks in the world because of their modern lifestyle and high incomes. As it is very common to drink colas or other soft drinks but I have heard many people saying that they cannot stop drinking them. I started to wonder what is it that makes drinking Coca-Cola so addictive? Is it the caffeine, sugar or the artificial sweeteners? Besides what's the harm in drinking Coca-Cola? Below I will examine these three issues. Caffeine content
The caffeine content in a 330ml serving of regular (sugar) Coca-Cola is about 32 mg. Compared to a a mug of coffee which contains 100 mg of caffeine that is a bit less. According to the Coca-Cola company the caffeine in their drinks is not addictive. However, if you are really sensitive to caffeine, you…

My Healthy Morning Routines

What kind of morning rituals do you have on the weekends? In this post I will share mine. I try to follow a consistent sleep schedule in which I try to go to bed at 10 pm at the latest on the weekends and wake up at 7.30 at the latest. Having said this, if I stay up later than 10 pm I don't stress about it. But if I have a "normal" weekend at home this is what I usually do..I have found a lot of positive things about waking up early. Previously I wrote about how waking up early made me more productive and how to become a morning person. I encourage you to try this!
After I have woken up, I drink a glass of room temperature water which I have left in my toilet the previous night. Then it's time to move my body. This part of my morning is the best part which encourages me to wake up early. My morning movements depend on how I feel in that morning. Sometimes I go for a short walk or run just to get some fresh air and wake up my body. In my opinion there is nothing like…

10 vinkkiä turvotuksen vähentämiseen

Vaivaako turvotus? Kokeile alla olevia vinkkejä ja saatat päästä kiusallisesta turvotuksesta eroon.

1. Syö säännöllisesti pieniä aterioita 5 kertaa päivässä.

2. Lisää kuitujen määrää.

Kuidut auttavat suolen toiminnassa, mikä jo sinällään vähentää turvotuksen tunnetta vatsassa. Tähtää 25 g päivässä. Hyviä kuidun lähteitä ovat kaurapuuro, täysjyväviljatuotteet, päärynä, avokado. Kaurapuuro marjojen kanssa on hyvä nesteenpoistaja.

3. Vältä suolan käyttöä.

Muistathan, että leivässä on yleensä paljon suolaa, leikkeleistä ja juustoista puhumattakaan. Jos käytät näitä elintarvikkeita, valitse vähäsuolaisin vaihtoehto tai sydänmerkki. Älä lisää suolaa riisiä keittäessäsi. Katso myös paljonko kasvis- ja lihaliemikuutiosi sisältää suolaa. Voit yllättyä!Suolaa tulisi saada maksimissaan 5g päivässä. Useilla suomalaisilla tämä määrä ylittyy reilusti.

4. Vältä nopeita hiilihydraatteja.

Näitä ovat muun muassa sokeri ja valkoviljatuotteet. Nämä keräävät nestettä elimistöösi ja aiheuttavat turvotusta …
