Thighs and buttocks are often a problem due to the accumulation of fat in the area. To tighten the two parts of the body may be done by burning excess body fat with cardiovascular exercise and build muscle with weight training.

Excess fat can hide muscle tone. Cardiovascular exercise such as walking, swimming, aerobics and cycling are performed 30 to 45 minutes a day to burn excess fat on the thighs and buttocks, as reported by LIVESTRONG.

In addition to burning fat in the thighs and buttocks, cardiovascular exercise can also increase the body's metabolic system, thus speeding up the burning of calories in the body that prevent the buildup of fat.

Walking is an activity that can be done by anyone regardless of sex and age and can be performed anywhere without the need for expensive equipment.

This is because freshness is obtained in the morning starting from the air and the environment will affect the body. This condition makes the body ready to perform various activities during the day.

Also running in the morning also makes the body's lungs filled with fresh air through respiration, thus providing a more healthy life for blood cells in the body. And create better coordination between the mind and soul.

A fresh mind would make a better mood that will automatically contribute to the improvement of health conditions. And body movements that involve all muscle will make circulation more smoothly.

Some other benefits that can be obtained from running in the morning is the flexibility of the body due to extensive stretching of muscles during walking, reduce the strain on the bone and tissue, increasing the strength of heart and helps burn fat, as quoted from Healthwealth.

Before conducting a walk in the morning there are some things you should consider in order obtaining maximum benefit, namely:

Maximizing The Ability of Drugs

Many people complain of drugs taken are not effective. It turns out there is the key for the drug benefit is so potent. How do I?

Scientists from Oxford, Cambridge and 2 other universities from Germany found recovered or not an illness rather than just depending on the medicine, but also greatly influenced by the mind.

Patients will recover faster if in his mind no doubt about the desirability and efficacy of drugs those wear.

This is evidenced in experiments involving 22 volunteers, the experts proved that the power of the mind is important in healing disease.

In initial experiments, given the intensity of pain stimuli through a heater this is affixed to the surface of the skin of the volunteers. The volunteers were asked to score pain with range of 000-100 and obtained an average score that is 66.

Furthermore, the volunteers received pain medication from the class of opiates by intravenous injection. Without knowing what drugs were injected, the volunteer were asked to rate pain again and was on average reduced to 55.

So know that the drugs injected are pain relievers, the average pain score into the lower namely 39. Decrease in pain intensity showed that by believing the drugs given function, more patients benefit from the drug.

Likewise, when the volunteers were told that the drug was discontinued, the average pain score increased again to 64. Yet according to the calculations of experts, the effects of injected drugs should still work until several hours later.

"These findings emphasize that clinicians should not overlook the importance of giving information to patients about what drugs are given and what is its function," said one researcher, Prof Irene Tracey, as quoted from the Telegraph.

Physicians should clearly provide information to patients this drug for what, so that patients understand the function of the medicine and when drinking convinced of the benefits of the drug so as to provide a more potent effect.

The results of this study have been published recently in the journal Science Translational Medicine.

Eliminates Tired with Beet Juice

People, who experience fatigue, lack of sleep or a decrease in stamina, usually because the oxygen in the body is also reduced. To restore the missing oxygen reserves could with beet juice can make you re-prime stamina.

Beet fruit or also known as beet or red beet roots is one of the varieties of Beta vulgaris. These plants form root tubers resemble the red and the most frequently encountered in North America and Britain. Even so, this plant has been sold in Indonesia, especially in the supermarkets.

Studies conducted by researchers from the University of Exeter's School of Sport and Health Sciences shows that a glass of beetroot juice can help increase your stamina back by 16 percent.

According to the researchers, the content of nitrate in beetroot juice can help restore the body's oxygen reserves. Lack of oxygen is what makes the body feel tired and not powered.

"We were impressed with the effect of beetroot juice on the absorption of oxygen due to this effect cannot be achieved by other means, including exercise," explained Professor Andy Jones, lead researcher from the University of Exeter's School of Sport and Health Sciences, as reported by the Telegraph, on Monday (14 / 2 / 2011).

According to Prof Jones, professional athletes and workers who need extra energy would be interested in the results of this research.

"I'm also interested to explore the relevance of the findings to people who suffer from lack of energy and may be able to use beet juice to help them through everyday life," said Prof Jones.

The research team believes that the nitrate in beetroot juice can turn into nitric oxide in the body, thus reducing the 'oxygen cost' associated with the sport.

The results of this study have been published in the Journal of Applied Physiology.

Another study conducted by researchers at Barts and the London School of Medicine and the Peninsula Medical School found that beet juice can also lower blood pressure.

Disease-Free Formulas

Do not smoke. Avoid junk food. Monitor continues to waist circumference. And walk!

Maybe we've heard the advice over a thousand times. But, do you know if we actually run the fourth case, we can reduce the chance affected the majority of chronic disease by 80%?

The fact was published in the Archives of Internal Medicine who has researched the health, lifestyle, and eating habits of 23,513 adults in Germany, with age range 35 to 65 years. The researchers found the volunteers who run a healthy lifestyle, tend to be rarely affected by diseases, like cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

This study also includes detailed analysis from height and weight, medical history, frequency of eating, and how the volunteers to follow these four healthy lifestyle in this study lasted 8 years. Believe it or not, these four healthy lifestyle that is the advice that we often hear, namely: No smoking, exercising at least 3.5 hours a week, keeping their BMI below 30. Following a diet high in fruits, vegetables, whole wheat bread, and limiting intake of meat. Most of the volunteers underwent a lifestyle, only 9% of those attending the four lifestyle requested.

After adjusting by risk factors that may affect the progression of the disease, the researchers found that volunteers who followed all the healthy habits can lower their risk of developing chronic diseases, like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and 78% rather than volunteers who reported not living a healthy lifestyle altogether.

In particular, if all four healthy lifestyle is done can reduce the risk of diabetes by 93% to 81% of heart attack, stroke 50%, and cancer by 36%. Researchers say how important it is to adopt healthy habits and teach this as early as possible.

You want to stay fit and avoided the deadly disease? Avoid cigarette (if you're a smoker, quit immediately), always keep a healthy weight with a BMI below 30, do physical activity at least 3.5 hours a week, and run a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and less red meat, suggestions Earl S. Ford, MPH, one of the researchers.
