After a strenuous workout or a demanding training session, absolute tranquility may seem to be the best way to promote relaxation. However, scientific evidence shows that there are many benefits in active recovery.Sport blog banner

What is active recovery?

Active recreation is a workout unit that is less intense and simpler than your usual sports units and is specifically designed to reduce physical and mental fatigue.

Why recovery at all?

The purpose of the rest is to give your muscles the opportunity to regenerate and to claim muscles that are tired and tense by a workout the day before.

It is often the case that the day after the sport muscle aches and feels less energetic ? however, passive recovery is only recommended if there is an injury. Rather, more physical activity is advised. This can be for example a walk, slow jogging, temperate cycling or mobility exercises. Massages also prove to be effective in the context of active recreation.

Active recreation supports the mobilization of the joints, which must be moved in their full range of motion in order to remain supple. The circulation is also stimulated. More blood flows through the muscles ? it supplies nutrients for building new muscle mass and transports waste products.

On a day dedicated to active recreation, you should not engage in any activity that challenges the muscles that were on the day before. Target easier activities that are less demanding.

Scientifically sound

There are hundreds of studies that support the concept of active recovery. In a published study it was found that active recovery immediately after the stress favours regeneration and the lactate concentration in the muscles is reduced faster than with absolute calm.

What should we do on recovery days?

The purpose of a rest day is to recover from the training, not only physically but also mentally.

The active recovery is based on the concept of low-intensity training, which is just demanding enough to bring the bloodstream in motion and to help reduce residual fatigue in the muscle. One of the best regeneration activities is swimming. A relaxing swimming unit followed by a cool or cold shower can help to stretch, relax and regenerate the muscles. Another study Has shown that a swimming-based recreational unit has improved athletic performance on the following day ? possibly due to the hydrostatic properties of water.

In order to help you stay motivated and implement your active wellness lifestyle, we have compiled some tips here:

1. Eat healthy carbohydrates about 2 hours before challenging sporting activities to keep your body warm and give it energy. This also helps to prevent fatigue.

2. Set goals for your athletic performance/weight and keep it in writing.

3. Reward yourself on a regular basis when you reach your goals ? but not only with food, so that you do not only combine pleasure with treats.

4. Wear the KenkoTherm Duk ? tape, which can help keep muscles and joints warm and support.

5. Massage your tired muscles with the Kenkotouch ?, a device that can promote relaxation and relief.

6. Support your back during and after the workout ? with the KenkoTherm ? back Strap that can be used alone or in combination with the magnetic plate Kenko MagFlex ?.

My experience report on the sports bottle:

The first question I ask myself is: Why did I buy it now?

The sports bottle is simply awesome. I love the filtered water of Nikken. It always gives me a good, healthy feeling. So far I was mostly too lazy to fill filtered water and take it with me. There are many reasons for this: where should I put the water in? The bottles we have, I usually do not like and purpose-alienated plastic bottles I do not really want to use the environment to love. So there were mostly on the road: nothing. That is the worst variant of all.

I first cleaned the Pimag bottle after unpacking and made some filter runs before the bottle was ready for use. At the moment it is very warm and we have to drink a lot. Yesterday afternoon I was golfing and the Nikken sports bottle fits perfectly in the bracket for the bottles. Drinking from the bottle for the first time is getting used to. I had to push it down a bit first to then pull the water through the drinking straw/drink. I had the shoot out quickly and it is also logical that the water does not get noisy because it has to go the intended way through the filter. That was a good round. I had my alkaline water with the sport-that gave me a very good feeling. If it is drunk, I can replenish it everywhere without having a bad conscience, that I now drink unfiltered water-I have from today yes my own water filter. Always filtered, clean water. For me my personal luxury!

NIKKENWELLNESS The Everyday Difference

3 Simple steps:

Cleansing
? Drink plenty of water
? Avoid harmful foods
? Eat more green leafy vegetables and other fiber-rich food

Support your body in cleaning
There is a correlation between digestion and metabolism. If the body cannot properly process the food supplied to it, i.e. absorb nutrients and remove waste products from the system, the metabolism cannot be carried out efficiently.
Balance
? Reduce your carbohydrate consumption
? Eat protein in the form of fish and seafood, legumes and lean meat
? Avoid saturated fats

Support the stabilization of your appetite
What you eat affects your metabolic rate. Protein stimulates metabolism and carbohydrates slow it down. As proteins are digested more slowly, they reduce your appetite. They feel more tired and therefore eat less.

Energy
? Pay attention to healthy, full-fledged organic snacks and drinks
? Sleep adequately
? Daily exercise at least 30 minutes

Movement and Sleep
Carrying extra pounds around can be tiring. Therefore, people who start a diet often lack energy. Daily exercise can boost the metabolism and therefore burn calories. A value snack can counteract energy lows. And remember, plenty of sleep! Studies show that the body with too little sleep increases the production of the appetite-stimulating hormone Ghrelin. Therefore, good sleep in weight management is considered an important factor.

The development of a healthy nutritional approach requires the support of an ActiveWellness lifestyle and a positive attitude to life. When it comes to weight management, it doesn’t have to count on calories. Just stick to a healthy diet that gives you the energy and nutrients you need and helps you achieve and maintain your dream weight.
Before you start a weight loss program of any kind, you should seek advice from your doctor

A brief introduction to the energy technologies of Nikken

Magnetic Technology

Electromagnetism is one of the four fundamental forces of physics that prevail in our environment (in addition to gravitation and two types of nuclear forces). The teaching of energy flows in the body and its effect on our health is an ancient principle and an integral part of Far Eastern cultures and traditional Chinese medicine, which for millennia has been the basis for health care in China and Japan Makes. In the meantime, the value of alternative practices, such as acupuncture, has also been recognised in Western countries.

In the course of the history of the Earth the polarity of the magnetic field reversed several times. But even in the course of human history, the Earth’s magnetic field has not changed insignificantly. In our modern world, our electro magnetic environment is further affected by human-created electromagnetic fields and sources of radiation.

Research in the field of these influences served as an inspiration for the development of the first Nikken magnetic products over 35 years ago, which should support our bodies in a world where we are increasingly taking physical and mental stress factors To get back into balance. The magnetic products of Nikken help to restore the conditions in which people can live and unfold by nature.

The magnetic Technologies of Nikken

For the first time, Nikken Magnetic technology was used in the Nikken KenkoInsoles ? , the company’s first product when it was founded in 1975. Since then, the research teams have continued their research work and found that the effect of magnetic fields is increasing with their complexity. Today we offer a range of magnetic configurations that have been developed for various applications.

Dynamic Magnetic Technology

This technology is more complex than a static field. It is used in our massage products and generates a three-dimensional dynamic magnetic field with greater depth effect.

Magnetic voltage Technology

The latest product developments of our magnetic range are based on a magnetic configuration in which the same poles meet and magnetic voltage fields are used to the three-dimensional complexity of our dynamic magnetic technology In a static form. Special magnetic properties Prevent degaussing in these configurations.

RAM ? Technology (radial-axis magnetism)

Small ball magnets are arranged in groups of six, with each individual magnet positioned within the group in such a way that its axis is rotated between the plus and minus poles to that of the adjacent magnet by 60 degrees. The magnetic fields overlap and there are magnetic fields of tension, which provide for an increased field complexity.

SpyderRAM ?

Similar to the RAM ? module, but in a slightly larger configuration for larger applications, a series of larger spherical magnets, which are offset against each other in their polarity, rest in a flexible, net-like matrix that can be applied to any body movement Can react.

DynaFlux ?

The groundbreaking DynaFlux ? technology from Nikken presents the voltage magnet technologies of Nikken in an even more compact form, allowing thinner and more powerful configurations for even more ingenious products.

Even more great features

The BioGreen PiMag? water bottle from Nikken features a new, improved cap with a practical loop for a secure grip that can be used to attach the bottle to a bag, for example, as well as a hygienic and replaceable drinking spout that folds up for easy replacement.

BIOGREEN

Biodegradable… Environmentally friendly properties

Every PiMag? water bottle consists of patented BioGreen materials. This completely breaks down the bottle into biomass when it lands on a landfill or compost heap. This biomass nourishes the soil and contributes to the production of biogas, which in turn can be used to generate energy.

BioGreen bottles are:

Suitable for contact with food (made from food-grade plastics)
BPA-free
DEHA- and DEHP-free
The PiMag? water bottle with its filter meets and exceeds NSF/ANSI 43 and 52 standards for the reduction of aesthetic chlorine as well as unwanted taste and odor.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY REFILLS

A very special filter – offers filtering, alkalisation and de-clustering

PiMag? water bottles contain a special alkalizing medium, which raises the pH value of the water from 7 to 8.5, as well as four neodymium magnets, which contribute to the de-clustering of the water molecules and make the water more bioavailable for the cell structure of our body.

The filter cartridge should be replaced every three months under normal conditions of use (approx. 180 litres water throughput).

Upgrading your current PiMag? water bottle is very simple

Easily upgrade your PiMag? water bottle by replacing its cap with the new cap

Sleep problems, a carousel of thoughts, you are awake and still somehow completely exhausted?
Why don’t you find sleep and how can you solve it? Lack of sleep has become one of the biggest health challenges.

We will give you tips on how to solve your challenges.

The advantages of your good sleep:
– You process information and memories better. Our mental and physical well-being improves noticeably. Stress and all things caused by stress are relieved.
– Your immune system can be strengthened by sufficient and good sleep. The sleep hormone melatonin is a natural anti-aging agent.
– Our pituitary gland produces a growth hormone, especially at night. This is responsible for activating our muscle repair and tissue growth.
– through sufficient sleep, we reduce dark circles and our skin looks fresh and rested.

Who is responsible for your restful slumber?
Our “inner clock” is a pea-sized gland that produces our hormones. The pineal gland. It directs many processes and is responsible for our biorhythm. Above all, the hormone melatonin is involved in our sleep. Melatonin is controlled by light. If it is always bright in the evening, your retina transmits the information that not much melatonin needs to be released to your small but very important gland. The result is that your body does not come to rest.

What are sleep killers and how can you replace them to get to sleep?

  • Often heard and so much truth to it: Laptop, mobile phone or TV have nothing to do in the bed and bedroom. Even if you just want to send an email or check the weather app for tomorrow: ban this activity outside the bed and end it so that you can do something relaxing for yourself before going to bed.
  • Watch your favorite show every night? Possible through Netflix or Amazon prime. But that has a high price. You pay with valuable hours of sleep that you miss the next day. Series always have the habit of ending in such a way that you always want to keep watching. They lead you into the temptation to want to look more. Often one ponders afterward how it will go on and has no calm thoughts. Try to reduce your TV consumption in the evening and set conscious times for it.
  • facebook, Instagram and other social channels are all too tempting to scroll through. An endless loop. Advertising should tempt us to go back to other sites to discover them. It chases you one time-eater after the other… These channels are like a “see and be seen” and not recommended for your thoughts and for your relaxation. Think about whether this really fulfills you and makes you happy. How about social-media-fasting on some days or even a longer period. Use the time for reading, playing with your family, or sharing. Your real-life can be so much more colorful and fulfilling if you want it to be.
  • You’re lying in bed and your thought carousel doesn’t want to end? Sometimes they turn your thoughts so fast that you lose the overview. You can no longer concentrate. You feel full in your head and empty at the same time. And actually you should be asleep after all… Take a piece of paper and a pen, take a deep breath and write down your thoughts. On the note – out of mind.?Write about your plans the next day, write down your thoughts from the day before. Always write down something that made you especially happy that day. Even if they are “little things” like the friendly “Good Morning” from the newspaper seller or the blooming flowers in the garden. After that, you will be able to sink into your pillows relieved and need not worry anymore. It’s all on your note.
  • Relaxing is only possible with time. Time for you! You mean you don’t have time? Then create space for yourself: Well, logically you are indispensable for your family and you can also do many things best. Honestly, nobody wants to make the post mad for you. That’s why you do everything. But is it really about that? It’s ok if others don’t do the things to be done as quickly as you do or differently. Try to give up to have more time for you. What can you give away? Walking with your dog, cleaning out and putting away the dishwasher, doing laundry – and hanging out, setting the table, taking out the garbage and there’s certainly so much more you can think of. Think about it together. Your family will be happy if you trust them and give them responsibility. For you, this means a huge gift of time. Time to put your feet up, time to have a cup of tea in peace and quiet.
  • Next cue, “Do nothing.” Doing nothing is difficult for you? What do you do when you have “time”? Are you on your mobile phone checking the latest posts, making phone calls and cleaning up the kitchen at the same time? The phone call goes longer and you sweep the house by the way? Water the flowers, start cooking or put the laundry together. The next day is planned at the same time. Wow. We can’t congratulate you on your “I-can-do-everything-once-and-then-also-quickly”. Without breaks, you will destroy yourself sooner or later. And you certainly know that. It is important to think about yourself and to try not to do anything. Yes, it is difficult if it is already part of everyday life and yes, you will manage it. I know that all too well. Let go, give things away and take care of yourself. I had to learn it hard again “to do nothing” and to enjoy doing nothing again without having a bad conscience. Resting is relaxing for you and will let you sleep again at night.
  • Nicotine, coffee, and alcohol: That sounds like a normal part of your everyday life – at least in parts? There’s the morning coffee, the coffee in between, cigarettes during breaks, the afternoon coffee, the visiting coffee, the “oh-I-am-tired-and-need-a-wake-coffee” and in the evening there’s the evening beer, the “I-must-relaxing-beer”, the visiting wine, the Friday evening wine and the weekend alcohol, the “today-was-a-shit-day-drink” and the “today-was-a-mega-day-drink”, as well as the “it-is-a-sun-cocktail” and also the “today-is-it-cold-glowing-wine”. It’s not hard to get by without alcohol all year long.. Alcohol, coffee and often also cigarettes (because one is so stressed) pull themselves through our everyday life. Over weeks, months and years. Alcohol promotes falling asleep – however, strongly prevents sleeping through. It confuses your sleep rhythm and you wake up the next day on wheels. You don’t have to drink a lot of alcohol to notice it the next day. Coffee consumption doesn’t let you relax in the long run, nor does nicotine. Our proposed solution: Try not to drink coffee too late and not excessively. Everyone copes with coffee differently. Replace it partially with tea or decaffeinated coffee… Alcohol fasting works wonders for your body and lets you see things more clearly and leads to more conscious consumption. How about a challenge with your partner or friends. Enjoy the next month alcohol-free… There are wonderful non-alcoholic cocktails and great drinks. We have recipes on our blog. Well and the dear nicotine… that this is unhealthy, you know. You just push your worries away for a short time – you won’t achieve real relaxation with him.
  • Sometimes you are stressed in the evening and don’t know why? Reflect your day. What has happened to you, what has thrown you off track, what occupies you? If it helps, write down your thoughts.
  • You grind your teeth at night and feel like you have complete body tension. With tension, you just can’t sleep well. Ask your partner to pamper you with a massage. That relaxes, brings peace and at the same time a couple of time ;-). In addition, warm relaxation baths with essential oils are beneficial. How would it be afterward nestled in the bed with an audiobook for muscle relaxation? Conscious of and relax helps your body to let go.
  • And what if you’re actually in a good mood, there weren’t any special incidents and you just can’t sleep? The good, that is completely normal and happens. Seldom not being tired is okay. Here we advise you to do concentration exercises in bed: Lie down, put your hands on your stomach and breathe in and out calmly. The light is naturally switched off. We want to get tired 😉 Your task is to concentrate only on your breathing. Not on the ticking of the clock, the creaking of the stairs or any other noises. Try it out. In the beginning, it is not so easy to stay with yourself and not let your thoughts wander. With time you get better and better, you come to rest and fall asleep blissfully.
  • What does your bedroom look like? Make your bedroom comfortable. Clean up rooms, unnecessary bits and pieces disappear into the cupboards, dirty laundry does not lie around on the floor, it is ventilated, a relaxed smell floats in the room ( e.g..: Lavender: it relaxes and also helps against moths? 😉 ), candles for a cosy atmosphere and soft light … even if you think that you “only sleep” in the room, this room should get a lot of attention from you. The bedroom is the room where we spend most of our time in life and it deserves to have a cozy, warm atmosphere so that you can look forward to it. Every day and every night. This feeling will be transferred to you and you will be much more relaxed in your bedroom and sleep.
  • The temperature makes a lot of difference. Do you know this: your feet are cold to fall asleep, you start to sweat under the blanket, but after a while, it’s too chilly again without the blanket. A constant covering and uncovering begin. You do not come to rest. In the worst case, you are even awake again. Tip: Take a close look at your ambient temperature: How warm is the room? 16-19 Celsius is optimal. Do you have enough fresh air, what material is your duvet and pillow made of? How is your mattress? All very important factors that contribute to a good night’s sleep. Products made of breathable cotton and other natural materials such as latex or bamboo regulate the temperature. Mattresses with pimples let the air circulate, massage and at the same time have less room for mites.
  • Allergies: Are you allergic to dust or house dust mites? Ensure a clean bedroom, enough fresh air and equip yourself with allergy-friendly sleeping systems. This gives you and your body the peace and quiet you need to sleep.
  • Are you the classic candidate with cold feet? Almost all year round? Sometimes the hands or the tip of the nose are also affected? Welcome to the club. Not only women are affected and it can have many different causes. Let’s exclude the too short duvet and also any illness is mostly the reason that you have low blood pressure and/or not so many muscles that can warm you. Hot-water bottles and socks have proved their worth. Please make sure that they sit loosely and do not constrict anything and that they are made of natural material. You sweat in plastic. And that again leads to you freezing.
  • Make your bed in the morning: 1. you have already done a job and 2. you will be happy every evening to go to a made bed.
  • all well and good and what do people do who work at different times and therefore simply can’t get regularity into their sleep and mealtimes? Shift work is a special challenge for your organism. All the more important that you find and use relaxation rituals for yourself as well as firm rituals in relation to sleep. You should try to keep the sequence of shift work good: from early noon to late at night, with a few days break in between to adjust to the early time.
  • Rituals, rituals, rituals: Rituals help us all our lives. They give us security. They give us inner peace because we know what awaits us. Rituals can be entered anew at any time. Find out which time is good for you to go to sleep and to be fitter in the morning, choose a few of the suggested tips and try to integrate them. Reading, painting or listening to an audiobook? 9 or 8 hours of sleep? Tea or hot milk? Walk or sport? Massage or hot bath? See what you feel comfortable with, what appeals to you and try yourself out and be patient with yourself. Try to relax and trust yourself and your body.
  • Are you noise and/or light-sensitive? Then earplugs and a sleep mask could help you. They shield you from annoying noises or light sources. Your sight muscles can relax. When the brain perceives total darkness, it increases the production of melatonin, the hormone responsible for sleep. Often the eye area is affected by stress and tension, which can lead to premature skin aging and wrinkles as well as headaches. Sleep masks help to calm the mind and provide a deeper sense of relaxation. You don’t have to become a yoga guru right away, just drink herbal tea or read poetry volumes or become an athlete to be able to sleep relaxed. For all these points there are good alternatives. Just as it does a walk in the fresh air, audiobooks, listening to relaxed, quiet music and a glass of water.
  • Does that mean that you won’t have any stress until your lifetime, just so that you can sleep well? Well, we can’t choose and sometimes we can’t influence that. In addition, each of us stresses other things. Your body tolerates stress. There is also positive stress. Stress can drive and motivate you. Sometimes, but not permanently. If you have too many stress factors in the long run, at some point your sleep, your everyday life and your life will start to suffer. At the latest then all alarm bells should go off and your personal everyday life should be viewed very critically and things should be changed. Changes are possible every day. Here and now.
  • Your body does not relax immediately? You have now read and learned so much about how you can come to rest so that you have the option to sleep well again and it does not want to work immediately? Give your body time. You have been feeding him stress for years, ignoring the signs and probably running over many stop signs. Your body needs to understand that you are serious and really want to relax. He has to adjust and learn to relax. Your body is a complex system that deserves to rest “in peace”. Be patient with yourself, breathe and trust yourself. You will be able to relax again.

Nutrition in today’s society

Good nutrition is one of the cornerstones of good health.
We need a variety of different foods to provide the right amounts of nutrients for good health.
However, in these fast-moving times, it can often be difficult to eat a full, balanced and varied diet. Instead, convenience and the supply of ready meals determine our diet, with it becoming increasingly difficult to maintain low levels of sugar, fat, and salt (not to mention additives) if we do not prepare our meals ourselves. This affects our health, and the weight problems that have almost become the norm in our society are worrying. In addition, the nutrient content of our fresh foods has decreased due to “modern intensive farming”.

Full-value support for our nutrition:

Food supplement from NIKKEN as adaptation and support to our modern everyday life

Undoubtedly, the best solution to a healthy diet is to eat three self-prepared whole meals that ideally contain at least five or more portions of fresh fruit and vegetables (raw). For most people, however, this is difficult to achieve in terms of time, in addition to the multitude of their daily commitments. Nikken, therefore, provides us with a range of basic and targeted nutritional supplements based on concentrated wholefood ingredients that support our basic nutritional needs in our hectic daily lives. The word supplement is deliberately chosen because the products are not intended to support the sole supply.

We offer the following products:

 

Proper nutrition is essential for good health, but it is not always possible to eat properly and provide our body with the nutrients it needs. Nikken Kenzen Wellness is based on organic fruit, vegetable and extract supplements to bring your diet closer to nature. Our natural alternatives to chemically produced supplements provide your body with the right amount of vitamins and minerals to support good health and improved biological functions. It is a total body renewal system as nature intended.

Organic-based nutrition means that all ingredients are carefully selected and the organic content is maximized. ?Nikken’s Nutritional Supplements are based on a wholefood philosophy. These biologically based solutions bring our daily diet closer to nature and are an essential part of a wellness home.

Here are two of our favorite products that are central to our nutritional needs:
Jade GreenZymes – a good start in your day.
Kenzen Super Ciaga? – Goodbye to stress. Strengthened by the day.

Feel-good home and good nutrition

Six basic nutrients are required for good health.
These include:

Carbohydrates – Carbohydrates are divided into two categories: simple and complex. Carbohydrates are the main source of energy for the brain. Without carbohydrates, the body could not function properly. Sources are fruit, bread, cereals, and starchy vegetables.

Protein is broken down into amino acids by the digestive system. Protein is the main structural component of cells and is responsible for building and repairing body tissue. Lean protein such as low-fat meat, dairy products, beans or eggs. There are many other vegetable protein sources if you decide for yourself.

Fat – The fat in foods contains a mixture of saturated and unsaturated fats. Fat is an energy source that increases the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, including vitamins A, D, E and K, when consumed. Choose healthy options such as omega-3-rich foods such as fish, walnuts and vegetable oils. Omega-3 fatty acids help with development and growth. Limit the intake of saturated fats such as high-fat meat and high-fat milk. Otherwise, choices are nuts, seeds, and avocado.

Vitamins – both water-soluble and fat-soluble. There may be slight differences in the amounts of specific vitamins for men and women, but in general, the essential vitamins your body needs are:
Vitamin A
vitamin C
vitamin D
vitamin E
vitamin K
B vitamins

The best way to get these vitamins is a healthy and balanced diet with lots of fruits and vegetables. A multivitamin supplement can also be useful to fill the gaps if you have a restrictive diet.

Minerals – These essential nutrients your body needs but cannot produce include the inorganic substances in foods such as calcium, potassium, sodium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, chloride and trace elements.
Water is said to be our most important nutrient. Water supports the maintenance of homeostasis in the body and transports nutrients to the cells. Water also helps remove waste products from the body.

If possible, choose fresh organic products. Eat as naturally as possible and try to avoid processed foods.

An effective nutrition strategy is more than just what we eat. It requires attention to many self-care processes that can affect our well-being. Good sleep, proper hydration with healthy water, reducing our body’s exposure to toxic chemicals and coping with stress are all important for improving and maintaining good health.
One of the most important decisions we make every day is what we eat and drink. It is everyone’s choice to eat healthy or not.

BE HEALTHY FROM FREE PIECES, NOT BY CHANCE

… We, humans, are miracles.

Let us become aware of what we take for granted every day: our body consists of more than 200 bones.
These bone/skeletons carry our weight throughout our lives.
They are ready non-stop and endure all our movements, strains, sporting challenges, and heavy physical work.
Even if they seem rigid to us: bones are a very active, living tissue!

It is, therefore, all the more important that we take care of our scaffolding, perceive it as what it is so that it can give us a secure hold in our lives every day.

In order to take good care of our skeleton, we must first understand what bones are:

They consist mainly of water, minerals and organic substances such as proteins.

From the development up to the age of about 25, bone formation takes place and has then reached the maximum bone density. If there is nothing extraordinary like high wear (keyword: weight, (hereditary) diseases (e.g. arthrosis)) the bone density remains constant for another 15-25 years.

Our bones are permanently built up and broken down and adapt to our requirements.
The bone density (i.e. the mineral salt content of the bones) of every human being decreases naturally in the course of his or her life. The bone becomes more and more brittle with age.
In addition, most people move less and less with increasing age and this also has no good influence on the stability of the bone.

Did you know that bones are only built up when they are required to move?
So if the bone has little or no load, it is broken down. This is independent of age. Already from childhood, we should move our bodies sufficiently.

In order to be prepared for your future, it is already important for you and your bone mass to care.
But how?
Two aspects play an outstanding role in the development of bone:
Exercise and nutrition.
– Bones need exercise:
Sufficient exercise enables the bones to store calcium optimally.
Sport promotes bone metabolism and calcium can be built into the bones. Jogging, hiking, climbing stairs, rope jumping, many racket sports favor this.
– Bones need calcium: Calcium gives bone strength. Dairy products are not so popular because they acidify us. Better sources of calcium with better bioavailability are very good food supplements, soy products or cabbage types or calcium-containing mineral waters. Take eight before the calcium robber phosphate. It is mainly found in sausages, cola drinks, and preservatives of ready meals.
– Bones need vitamin D so that calcium can be absorbed and incorporated into the bones.
– Magnesium and zinc.

If you take this to heart, then you have a reserve from which your body can benefit when it needs it.

The breakdown of bone mass is therefore natural and does not mean that everyone automatically develops osteoporosis. This is often mistakenly assumed.
Every year we lose about 1% of our mass, which is a natural sign of aging. In women, bone loss often increases after the menopause.

This makes it all the more important to supply your body with the points mentioned above!
If we do not supply our body sufficiently and with the wrong things we run the risk of developing osteoporosis.
Our bones lose much of their mass, it becomes unstable and breaks easily.
Inadequate supply is caused by it:
– Taking medication (e.g. cortisone)
– smoking – excessive alcohol consumption – unhealthy diet ( keyword: phosphate ) and
– a diet low in calcium
– as well as a movement deficit.

Keep an eye on your strong bones throughout your life, then you can profit from them in the long run and continue to do the things you love.
Take good care of yourself in order to lead an independent life. Without age-related fractures that would be accompanied by pain and suffering.

Our bones are the support of our life!

…what is this anyway?

Alkaline or alkaline is the same.
Alkaline water is alkaline and therefore not acidic. Whether water is acidic or alkaline or alkaline is indicated by the pH value. Under 7 one speaks of acidic water. The higher the value, the more alkaline the water is. The pH value is the measure of the hydrogen ions.

What is the difference between tap water?

Normal tap water has a pH value of approx. 7-8. It is neutral or very slightly alkaline/basic. Alkaline water is in the range between 8 and 9.5.

Is alkaline water better than tap water?
Yes.
By drinking alkaline water, the acid-base balance can be restored. With alkaline water, you can counteract acidosis.

Why is hyperacidity not good?
If your body is over-acidified, …
… you are tired: inner restlessness leads to problems falling asleep and sleep disorders
… you tend to be overweight: due to too much acid in the body, it can no longer be broken down: Result: storage in your fat cells and this leads above all to an increase in abdomen, legs, bottom, and face and to cellulite.
… skin problems occur: toxins are usually broken down by the liver. In the case of hyperacidity, this also happens via the skin. Your natural protective shield can be attacked and thus provides an excellent breeding ground for pimples and impurities.
… Joint pain and susceptibility to infections: the correct pH value is a prerequisite for optimal metabolism. If this is disturbed, an excess of acid develops, which is reflected in many physical symptoms.
… do you tend to have high blood pressure?
… hair loss can occur

Advantages of alkaline water:
– It has a basic pH value: a lot of oxygen is released for the metabolism.
– clean thanks to the filtering process: free of medicines, pesticides, heavy metals and chlorine
– it’s antioxidant: antioxidants can protect cells from free radicals. Free radicals attack our cells and can render them ineffective. Antioxidation is like a fountain of youth.
– it has much smaller clusters. Thus the body can transport nutrients substantially more easily and faster into the cells.
– it is alive.

The acid is basically a waste product of our metabolism. Our body has base storage with which it can compensate for hyperacidity. He is permanently busy to create a balance so that our body is alkaline.

The base storage must be filled by our nutrition. We should, therefore, consume considerably more alkaline components. Unfortunately, it is often the other way round in today’s nutrition. We eat too much “acid”: e.g. ready-made bread, sugar, lots of meat, coffee, alcohol. Also things like stress by performance pressure, fear, annoyance result in over-acidification.

In addition to lots of fruit and vegetables, we should drink plenty of alkaline water.

How do we get alkaline water?
There are several possibilities.
One would be to filter normal tap water with a very good water filter that keeps the water alive.

Tip:
Pimp your filtered water with lemons.
Lemons taste sour but are alkaline!
Pure water with untreated lemons tastes refreshing and helps to fill your base stores.

Can I buy alkaline water?
Yes, you can. By filtering.

Special equipment can do quite a lot and do you incredibly good:
– Their minerals give the water alkaline pH value. This helps to balance the acid-base balance.
– Through the filtering, the water is freed from a lot of sheep substances, etc.
– Ionization: protection against oxidation
– There are also devices that have an additional magnet technology installed. Due to the magnetic field, the water molecules do not clump. This has the consequence that your body removes pollutants more easily and you purify.
Often these devices come from Japan. The effect of alkaline water has long been widespread there.

Only if your acid-base balance is in balance can your metabolism function optimally – and that is clear that this is the basic prerequisite for your health.

Drink alkaline water and your body will breathe a sigh of relief and thank you for it.
