Sprinting, an anaerobic exercise, burns more fat at a higher speed—about 200 cals in 2.5 mins—than jogging, an aerobic one. It boosts metabolism and helps build lean muscles faster with the testosterone and the growth hormone it helps release. And as it triggers a faster release of endorphins, it's more effective in lowering stress. Restrict sprinting to 3 days a week and avoid it if you have heart or respiratory problems.
To the predominantly right-handed world, there is something elegant about a left-handed athlete or musician. But are they really more artistic, more athletic, and more creative or is this just another urban myths? Whether these are true or not, left-handers definitely do provide a deeper understanding of how the human brain works and how it can be fixed if things go wrong.
Running even 30 mins prior to sex boosts testosterone and libido and enables faster and intense orgasms in both men and women. While it betters sexual function in men and even cures erectile dysfunction with a healthy blood flow, it makes women more sensitive to touch. Running also gives you a good body that fuels your self-confidence and desirability. Just don't go overboard and tire yourself out.
When in stress, women release oxytocin that makes them feel secure and nurturing. Men, instead, release testosterone that gives them a sense of accomplishment. These are self-boosting de-stress cycles. Cortisol (stress hormone) both induces and opposes the two hormones, making the fight against stress a constant struggle. Women are inherently more stressed than men.
There are 2 causes other than insulin resistance and excess androgen that is responsible for irregular ovulation and lower estradiol and progesterone levels in 40% women with PCOS. The first is elevated prolactin levels due to stress, pregnancy, or pituitary tumors. The second is an ineffective thyroid gland that disrupts the functioning of all body cells, including ovarian cells.
Women with PCOS can conceive naturally if the right root cause can be identified. High-androgen types need to control blood sugar and insulin with a low-glycemic-load diet and exercise. High-prolactin types need to reduce stress levels and consume foods rich in Vit B6. Low estrogen types should consume a diet rich in magnesium, zinc, and Vit C, B5, B6 to help restore normal adrenal function.
Avocados are rich in nutrients, fatty acids, and plant sterols. They contain healthy fats, making them good for weight management. The plant sterols promote the production of estrogen in women and testosterone in men and also maintain the right progesterone balance in women. They also inhibit both synthesis and release of insulin, keeping it within healthy limits.
Boost testosterone levels by doing weight training regularly, taking natural supplements like ashwaghanda, taking adequate rest, eating zinc and magnesium rich foods like spinach and chard and reducing sugar and alcohol. Consuming organic fats from oily fish, peanuts and avocados and skin exposure to early morning sun helps in boosting testosterone levels.
When hair looks dull, dry, and is brittle, it is a sign of dehydration so consume at least 2.7 liters of fluid a day. If you notice dark facial hair suddenly appearing on your upper lip or hair thickening on your arms, it might be due to the excessive secretion of testosterone. Experts confirm that thinning hair is caused by stress and anxiety.
