  • Enhance Your Workout with Pathway Cleanfit BCAA

    by Paula Gallagher | August 4, 2015

    bcaa_1Branched-chain amino acids (or BCAAs) are a group of three essential amino acids: valine, leucine and isoleucine. Essential amino acids are amino acids that our bodies cannot produce from other materials, and so we must ingest them regularly. Good sources are lean meats, egg whites, and dairy products. Pathway Cleanfit™ BCAA powder is also an excellent source. This water-soluble formula of BCAAs, glutamine and B vitamins mixes easily into water for maximum absorption.

    Pathway Cleanfit BCAA provides branched-chain amino acids that are essential to building and maintaining muscle tissue and have long been used by athletes and other active individuals to activate protein synthesis and reduce muscle breakdown caused by intense training or physical activity.

    In addition to helping build muscle, BCAAs can be used by muscle cells as an indirect energy source during strenuous exercise without forming pain-causing lactate. Normally, when we perform strenuous exercise while burning other fuel sources such as fat or carbohydrate, a byproduct called lactate is produced. Lactate is the chemical responsible for your painful and stiff muscles the morning after a hard workout. Read more

    fitness-tracker-walkingMore than 1.4 billion dollars have been invested in fitness wearables since 2009. It’s become a huge and growing trend for individuals, as well as companies hoping to promote greater wellness in the workplace.

And while the corporate market is huge, the biggest market is still individuals who are on the lookout for the wearable that best suits their individual tastes, budget, needs and preferences.

  • 4 Lifestyle Changes to Improve Your Health

    by Paula Gallagher | June 16, 2015

    bicycle-familySome of the top causes of death amongst Americans are related to lifestyle. The good news is that the risk of heart disease, cancer, respiratory illness and stroke can all be reduced with lifestyle changes.

    Research suggests that the United States spends well over $7,000 per person per year on healthcare, more than twice the average of many other countries. Yet, the average life expectancy in the United States is far below many other nations that spend less on healthcare each year.

    Here are four lifestyle changes to improve your health and help prevent disease.

    1. Stop smoking. Tobacco use is the single most avoidable cause of disease, disability, and death in the United States. Although we all know the detrimental effects that smoking has on our bodies, one in five Americans still smokes. The health benefits of quitting smoking are numerous, and many are experienced rapidly. According to the Centers for Disease Control, within 2 weeks to 3 months after quitting, heart attack risk begins to drop and lung function begins to improve. Read more
