Antioxidants and Free Radicals

The terms ‘antioxidants’ and ‘free radicals’ are ones that you may have heard more and more in the last few years as the health food industry booms. Although you could be forgiven for assuming that they are just more marketing hype, these are actually two important things to bear in mind when you are striving for optimum health.

The group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joints are known as the rotator cuff. These muscles are key to keeping the head of the upper arm bone in the shoulder socket.

Choosing healthy foods that are bursting with vitamins, minerals and other nutrients is a great way to give your body the support it needs to function well. Foods that are high in calories, saturated fat and simple carbohydrates may be tasty, inexpensive and easy to shop for, but in the long-run they are not going to be serving your body well!

The nervous system is responsible for transmitting signals between different parts of the body, and is made up of nerves and cells. Today we are going to take a look at how the nervous system is constructed, and find out how exercise can help to improve the function of this system!

Understanding Your Energy Systems

The Core Muscles of the Body

When we talk about the core muscles, we often tend to think that this muscle group is solely concerned with the abdominal muscles - or abs as they are usually called. However, the core is actually a complex combination of several different muscles. And, far from just being easy on the eye, a strong core is helpful for stabilising your body!
