Abdominal bloating is an unpleasant fact of life and it may be a result of a number of reasons. Bloating happens to us all from time to time and is a common complaint amongst people of all ages.

Athletes are well aware of the importance of electrolytes for supporting health and for promoting optimal performance, but most of us rarely consider the fact that the body needs to maintain a constant balance of electrolytes such as potassium in order to ensure long-term health.


Electrolytes are minerals that are present in body fluids and in the cells of your body and they are vital for regulating fluid balance and other functions. Potassium is one of the primary electrolytes in your body, and it is responsible for ensuring healthy electrical function.

Pruney Fingers: Causes, Treatments And When To See a Doctor

Having pruney fingers is a common occurrence after submerging your hands in water for a period of time. Very often, soaking in the bath, washing dishes, or swimming can cause your fingertips to look like shriveled up prunes. However, many people have noticed that their fingers can wrinkle when they are not in water. For example, doctors have discovered that pruney fingers can be linked to blood circulation problems, type 2 diabetes, or being cold.

In this article, you will learn about the various causes of pruney fingers and why certain conditions can cause skin on …

Protein is a building block for the muscles, and the fuel that supports the body’s cells and tissues. It’s a must for fitness, health, and longevity.


Of course, most people don’t give protein much thought at all, with the exception of bodybuilders and those who are on special diets like the Paleo diet which is protein-focused. And, the majority don’t really even know what proteins are.

What is protein?
These long chain amino acids are important molecules derived from one’s diet, most commonly known to be found in foods from animals such as meat, eggs, fish and dairy, though they can also be found in vegetables and other plant foods like nuts, seeds, and beans.

Your body produces 11 amino acids, but the other essential amino acids, nine of them, must be consumed from food. As they are used t…
