For many years, access to sports supplements in Thailand has been very limited and expensive. The cost alone has been prohibitive for the average Thai to gain access to quality supplements. Fortunately today, there is a wide variety of imported sports supplements such as whey protein available in Thailand at prices similar to that in Europe and Australia.

The registration process for food products in Thailand is notoriously complicated and expensive. For example, a whey protein product needs a separate registration for every size and flavor of essentially the same product. The entire process to register one product can end up costing several thousand dollars and there is no guarantee that the product will even be accepted. Another issue lies with supplement ingredients. The English ingredient needs to be checked against an approved ingredient list which is in Thai. Even though the ingredient exists, if its not in the Thai approved ingredient list chances are the product will be rejected. Fortunately today, the Thai FDA appears to be relaxing their registration process for sports supplements.

Companies such as Dymatize Nutrition and Optimum Nutrition now have official distributors in Thailand and their products are officially registered with the Thai FDA. Prior to this, sports supplements were often smuggled into the country and sold illegally usually at very high prices.

Musashi, an Australian supplement company, has been trading in Thailand for several years and had essentially cornered the market for supplements such as whey protein. Because of this, the company was able to charge extortionate prices giving them a bad reputation in Thailand.

Many new sports supplement retailers have emerged in the past year in Thailand making the market competitive. One such retailer, Phuket Health Shop, now has over 300 imported sports supplements in stock making them one of largest retailers of supplements in Thailand. Phuket Health Shop carries the worlds most popular brands of whey protein and sports supplements such as Dymatize, Optimum Nutrition, BSN, Gaspari, USP Labs, AST, and CytoSport. As a high volume retailer, Phuket Health Shop offers extremely low prices and provides nationwide delivery of its products.

The sports supplement market in Thailand is set to explode. Thais are showing an increased interest in bodybuilding and sports such as mixed martial arts where events are often sponsored by supplement companies. Top quality whey protein can now be purchased at an average serving cost similar to that of a regular meal. Professional bodybuilders have become celebrities in Thailand and many young Thais idolize them. These are just a few of the many reasons this emerging industry is set for amazing growth.

Blue light therapy is a modern discovery in the fight against acne. Unlike other acne treatment solutions such as medicated creams and expensive dermatological procedures, blue light therapy for acne is more effective, affordable, convenient and free from side effects.

Acne light therapy has typically only been available in a clinical setting, such as a spa or dermatologists office, but a recent up rise in at home treatment systems is making blue light therapy available to the masses. Tabletop lamp like devices such as the “Blue Acne Light” from BlueAcneLight.com use a powerful multi-led bulb that emits light in various spectrums that have been proven to destroy acne and heal skin. The same light spectrums used in the spa and dermatologists machines are offered in a more compact, convenient and more affordable format. Most at home blue light therapy solutions range between $200 and $500. If you compare that to the cost of a spa or dermatologists treatment, which can be anywhere from $40 to $150 per treatment, over a course of 6-8 recommended treatment, these devices easily pay for themselves during the first treatment campaign and can be used if breakouts occur in the future.

Unlike many so called “acne treatment solutions”, blue light therapy is clinically proven effective by independent testing done by the British Journal of Dermatology and has been approved as an effective form of acne treatment by the FDA. It has long been known, and you have likely experienced that when you expose your skin to the sun for a moderate period of time, whether it is naturally or via a tanning bed, acne seems to improve or clear up. This is because of the natural blue light spectrum that the sun provides, even though you don’t see it as blue. The disadvantage to sun exposure and tanning is of course the artificial aging of your skin, not to mention the risk of skin cancer. Blue light therapy focuses specifically on the spectrums outside of the UV range that kill acne bacteria.

It has been proven that blue light in the 405nm-420nm spectrum actually kills Propionibacterium Acnes (P. acnes) bacteria. P. acnes bacteria create tiny molecules called porphryins. When porphyrins are exposed to blue light they produce free radicals that kill the bacteria that cause inflammatory acne. It sounds quite complex, but it’s a wonderfully simple solution.

Much like blue light, red light also has natural healing properties. Red light effectively speeds up the skins natural healing process and prevents scaring. The root of red lights healing properties is that when red light is absorbed into the skin it increases blood and oxygen flow. This increased blood and oxygen flow allow scars and blemishes to disappear much quicker than normal. The higher end home treatment Blue Light Therapy solutions on the market combine the acne fighting powers blue light with the healing powers of the red light, and effectively become a “destroy and heal” solution, exactly what it takes to clear up problematic acne.

Many sufferers use drugstore creams and lotions with benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, or sulfur in stopping acne. Dermatologists may also prescribe antibiotics or additional vitamin A sources to alleviate this condition. Vitamins A, B, E, are important for the skin’s vitality and are provided by fruits, vegetables, fiber, protein, and water. Decreasing high-fat foods and omitting milk products and salt should also be undertaken. Also, natural ways using juices and herbs to ease symptoms.

Teenagers and Adults Are Affected- Puberty-stricken teenagers and adults from every ethnic background suffer from this skin ailment. It is caused by plugged skin pores from hormones and other substances in the oil-producing glands and hair follicles.

Greasy skin that causes this condition is a result of heredity, greasy makeup and moisturizers, or a greasy workplace such as a fast-food restaurant. Sports clothing such as uniforms and helmets that fit to tightly will also cause this situation. Environmental factors such as pollution and humidity are also factors.

Food Recipes for Skin Cleansing- The skin needs vitamins to look and feel its best. Skin cleansing products made from natural herbs and fruits are excellent alternatives to over the counter products. Place two tablespoons of dried elderflower and one chamomile teabag in a cup, pour boiling water over the herbs and cover for ten minutes.

Then strain and permit to cool before applying daily four times. A different choice of herbs would be to use three and a half ounces of dried lemon balm leaves, one chamomile tea bag, and three quarter ounces of dried mint leaves instead. This can sit for just six minutes before straining, applying and cooling daily one time.

Combining two parts fresh cabbage juice, two parts fresh carrot juice, and one part fresh blueberry juice and then apply it to the skin allows vitamins A, B, and sulfur. A refreshing peel-off mask can be created by combining an envelope of no flavored gelatin with a half cup of boiled fresh fruit juice and any of the just-mentioned herbs. After cooled and almost set, and then peel off after completely dry.

Other routine ways to stopping acne are as simple as shampooing hair on a daily basis to get rid of any excess oil. Men should soften their skin before shaving by gently washing their face first, and women should change the brand of makeup they use in case the ingredients are causing an allergic reaction.

A report has been released by the Mayo Clinic that identifies five (5) areas that need to be targeted for a balanced fitness program. The areas identified in the report include 1) aerobic fitness, 2) muscular fitness, 3) stretching, 4) core stability and 5) balance training. Each item will be discussed below.

1. Aerobic Fitness:
Aerobic fitness is often called cardiovascular fitness. Aerobic fitness is essential to weight loss and total fitness because it helps the lungs, heart and blood vessels move oxygen through the system more efficiently.

Aerobic or cardiovasculr exercise should be done at least two and one half (2-1/2) hours each week for a moderate aerobic activity or at least seventy five (75) minutes for vigorous exercise. Aerobic exercises should be spread throughout the week.

2. Muscular Fitness:
Muscular fitness exercise should be done at least two to three times during the week. Muscular exercises help with muscular fitness along with increasing bone strength. Muscular strength is necessary as we grow older.

Equipment is not necessary to maintain muscular fitness if you have a fitness program that includes body strengthening exercises like push-ups, chin ups and squats along with others.

3. Stretching:
Stretching is sometimes forgotten but it is critical for a well rounded program. All fitness coaches recommend that stretching be included in their fitness programs. All exercises make the muscles contract and flex so stretching of the muscles also needs to be included for a well rounded workout.

Stretching is especially important for the later years to keep the body flexible to avoid a lot of the injuries that accompany old age.

4. Core Stability:
Core muscles are those in the body and include the abdomen muscles, lower back and the pelvis area. They should be included in fitness programs because they are needed for upper and lower body movements.

5. Balance Training:
Balance is often forgotten in physical fitness programs but it needs to be included in a well rounded program. Balance is essential to everyday life functions and it tends to deteriorate with age so it imperative that a good program be maintained.

Developing a good balance training regimen will add quality to life.

Mayo Clinic has identified these five (5) areas as being essential to a complete fitness program so it is important that all the items be included in the fitness program. Incorporate all five (5) elements into everyday life and it will go a long way to insure better health.

Too much of anything isnt good for you either. Not all type of food is nourishing. The basic types of foods you should be eating are vegetables, protein, and fruits. Stay away from fruits with lots of sugar. Also, you may get high cholesterol from not picking to eat properly and will cause roughen arteries, which may lead into heart attacks. Not only is it imperative that you watch what you eat but also how much are you eating of it. Anything in excessive is bad for you.

Eating right is the first step to endure a healthy lifestyle. When you dont eat healthy you abstain from getting the appropriate nutrients. Eating properly allows you to gain energy and the strength your body needs. Remember youre what you eat. If you eat healthy you will feel healthy and if you eat unhealthy you will feel unhealthy. The key to eating right is to decide and believe that “You eat healthy”.

Keep in mind its imperative you maintain a sensible diet. Eat from the four food groups. Eat the quantity youre supposed to. Also, exercise about 3 to 5 times a week. This will also help you stay healthy and get fit.

You should always do yearly check up to see how your health is doing. If youre trying to lose weight make sure you consult a doctor and speak about a diet plan. Skipping meals is also not healthy. Youre only depriving your body from sufficient nutrients and you will only allow yourself to feel weak. Drink plenty of water. Keep your body hydrated at all times.

Self-motivation is the key to achieve anything in life. The ability to encourage yourself effectively will help you to reach your goals better than ever before! If your goal is to lose weight, eat right, get fit, etc. Start with a vision. How do you see yourself in the next six months? Give yourself a deadline, write down a plan on how you are going to reach that goal, have the right attitude and reward yourself. These are the basics keys to achieve any goal in life. I leave you with this- having a goal is not enough to succeed, taking action is the key.

If you are a woman who has recently turned 40, don’t panic! You have to maintain a sense of perspective when a major milestone is reached. Sure, you’ll never be 20 again, but aren’t you glad of that in many respects? Because you are no longer 20, you need to start taking better care of yourself if you haven’t already: as your body ages, you need to start supplementing its natural functions with extra nutrition, vitamins, and minerals. Here is an overview of the top four supplements for women over 40.

1. Calcium, Magnesium, and Vitamin D

These vitamins and minerals often come rolled up into one with a good multi-vitamin. If you have a family history of osteoporosis, you’ll want to take increased levels. Make sure you contact a nutritionist or your physician to determine a daily dosage that’s just right for you. Although you may not experience the effects of osteoporosis for another decade or more, the time to prevent it is NOW. Women begin losing bone mass at the rate of 1 percent a year beginning at age 35. Most women do not consume enough calcium-rich foods to make up the difference: a supplement is the way to go.

2. Omega-3 Fish Oil

Heart disease is still the Number One killer of American women. The best prevention against heart attacks and coronary disease is to live a healthy lifestyle: maintain reasonable weight, quit smoking, and be careful what you eat. Omega-3 fish oil supplements are invaluable in preventing heart disease in women.

3. Anti-Cancer Combinations

If you are at risk for cancer, you can take a combination of different supplements that may help to prevent the disease: Vitamins E, C, and B-complex; ginseng; grape seed extract; garlic; and Echinacea. If you haven’t already, limit your exposure to the sun and give up tanning beds altogether. Sun exposure not only causes skin cancers but also promotes premature aging of the skin.

4. Collagen

Speaking of skin: when a woman reaches 40, her body is a lot less efficient at producing adequate levels of collagen to keep skin elastic, nails strong, and hair healthy. This is why fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear: lack of collagen and the inevitable effects of gravity! Taking a daily collagen supplement will make a real difference, really fast. In fact, women notice stronger nails in just two weeks. Hydrolyzed collage supplements are the best form to take since they are most easily broken down and absorbed by the body’s natural processes.

There’s no going back! So embrace the wisdom you’ve gleaned from your young adult years and face the next part of your life head-on. Smart women over 40 take the right supplements that will help them to both look and feel younger no matter their age.
