Fabulous Fennel

Worth Knowing:

Fennel originally comes from the Mediterranean where it is mainly grown as a vegetable, but has also become native to many of our local gardens. If you are walking through a natural meadow you might also find wild fennel. It can be recognized by its finely feathered leaves, its distinct anise like, and dainty yellow flowers. In folk medicine, fennel is described as a true miracle herb. Including fennel and fennel seeds in your diet are great for improving your mood, a healthy complexion, oral health and fresh breath, reducing mucus, detoxing, relieving cramps, supporting digestion and reducing an upset stomach.

Happy World Water Day !

Today is World Water Day and we have a few facts about THE elixir of life – the human body consists of about 70% water and 99% of all metabolic processes take place in an aqueous environment. Thus, it is of course necessary that our body is supplied daily with the right amount of water. Healthy adults should drink at least 30 – 35 ml of water per kilogram of body weight (1 fl.oz for 2 lbs of body weight) daily. If it is difficult for you to drink “simply” water, then spice it up with mint or lemon. It is often easier to drink warm water, since it doesn’t quench your thirst. Simmer the water for 10-15 minutes – this can help in many different ways and support your well-being. Get used to carrying a water bottle with you at all times and drinking it in small sips throughout the day. This will ensure that you will be sufficiently hydrated throughout the day.

“A healthy outside starts from the inside.”
– Robert Urich

What to give up for Lent?

Lent, a religious observance for Christians, is related to fasting. The question to the answer what to give up is left with the individual.

While many give up chocolate, sweets or alcohol, we at Metabolic Balance see the start of Lent as a great time for a metabolic restart. Our team at Metabolic Balance often like to start on Ash Wednesday (the start of Lent) by going back into strict phase 2 of our Metabolic Balance nutrition plans. So how about doing something great for your body and your metabolism?

Health and Happiness

Health and happiness are always seen in a close connection. This probably has to do with the fact that how we feel physically and how we feel emotionally cannot be separated. It is generally recognized, for example, that someone who feels happy and has joy in their lives is less likely to become ill at the “organ of joy” – aka the heart. Whereas, conversely, when we’re feeling down we often become more susceptible to viruses and bacteria and a generally weaker immune system. A key to personal happiness – and thus to health – is a healthy diet. Metabolic Balance has been proven to increase the quality of life which naturally leads to boosting health and happiness.

Like Mahatma Gandhi we truly believe health is the real wealth in life.
