      Performance and Health Benefits from Coffee

      By Oscar Isacsson, M.S., CSCS | August 3, 2017

      Senior Nutrition and Wellness: If you’re planning on going to the gym try taking two large cups of coffee beforehand. In a study on lifters, the groups were split up into taking, coffee, decaf coffee, caffeine pills, and placebos. The group that performed the best in the before and after testing was the group that drank two cups of coffee before starting their workout. The coffee group outperformed the decaf and placebo group which was expected, however, they also outperformed the caffeine pill group. This shows that there’s more to coffee than just the caffeine. Coffee is loaded with antioxidants and other nutrients even though it’s very low in calories.

      By Jessica Lener, MSN, RN | July 21, 2017

      Alzheimer’s Care: When Ronald Regan announced to the world that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 1994, he joined one of approximately 2 million American’s suffering from this degenerative brain disease (Rothman, 2016). A little over twenty years later, we now have more than 5 million people who have been diagnosed and are in various stages of the disease process. Prolonged life expectancy, the number of baby-boomers reaching an older age, and the advances in science and early detection have all contributed to this increase.

Sometimes you need to pay a little extra attention to really figure out whether something is good for you or not so good for you. A lot of marketers realize that there is a big need for healthy foods, however, sometimes the claims are slightly over exaggerated. Some items named as healthy can be far from it. Foods that are truly healthy for you will not have a healthy label. For example, broccoli is not going to have a “low fat”, “high in fiber”, “Great source of vitamins”, “gluten free”, label on it because it’s broccoli and everybody knows it’s awesome for you.
