Skin Care Tip:

Corn Syrup & Your Skin

High-fructose corn syrup is a popular product that can be found in many processed and pre-packaged foods in order to extend their shelf life. However, it has been found that corn syrup can wreak havoc on the skin due to the fact that the body cannot break it down for digestion. Our body tends to react negatively. This in turn leads to breakouts, premature wrinkles, sun sensitivity, hyperpigmentation, and dark circles. Common foods that contain high-fructose corn syrup are cereal, non-dairy creamer, yogurt, bread, salad dressing, sauces, soda, and fruit flavored drinks.

Anti-Aging Tip:

Eat More Fish!

Americans have a bit of a reputation for being a carnivorous nation. Whether it’s the love affair with steaks and burgers or a hot dog at the ball park – we may have forgotten that a diet of heavy meat isn’t very healthy for our bodies. However, where many nutritious benefits lie is within a diet that consists of fish. It has been found that people who eat fish regularly generally live longer and have less chronic diseases. Fish contains high quality protein, unsaturated fats, and Omega-3 fatty acids.Omega-3 fatty acids have been found to have many health benefits. Physical benefits include prevention and protection against various cancers, cardiovascular disease, and inflammatory disorders. Emotional and mental health benefits have been found as well, and that is why there has been research to support that Omega-3 fatty acids aid in treatment of depression, autism, bipolar disorder and ADHD. Opting for wild fish as opposed to farm-raised has been found to not only taste better but also have stronger health benefits.
