What are electrolytes ?
Electrolytes are minerals in ionic form (not bound to other elements but isolated and electronically charged). Table salt (sodium chloride) dissolves in water and separates into separate ions Na+ (positively charged sodium) and Cl- (negatively charged chloride). This is how minerals come into ou bodies when dissoved  in water and used for many different processes, such as neural impulses and muscle contractions.
Examples of natural electrolytes are sodium, potassium, magnesium and chloride. When you sweat a lot, you will lose a lot of these electrolytes too. 

Electrolytes for athletes
People that practice sports often and intensely (for instance endurance athletes like cyclists, runners but also rowers, tennis players and those playing team sports) benefit from adding electrolytes. This is possible in various ways. Contrary to a lot of sports drinks (which contain a lot of sugar, but few electrolytes), Elete sportdruppels offer a natural and healthy addition. No additives, sugars, sweeteners or calories. 

Because it is entirely natural and delivers extra magnesium EleteTMSport drops are utmost suited for (top)athletes that need to replenish lost electrolytes (sodium, potassium and magnesium) after exercise. 

Great Salt Lake, the source of Elete Sportdruppels
Elete Sportdruppels gets its ultimate strength from the mineral-rich water in the Great Salt Lake of Utah (VS). This is a land-sea, which because of geothermic activities and evaporation, contains enormous amounts of concentrated minerals , which are also found in the ocean, but due to lack of contamination is far purer. Elete sport drops contain a balanced amount of ionic minerals. 

Remarkably high magnesium levels 
Elete Sportdruppels contain a high amount of magnesium compared to other sport drinks that contain no or barely any magnesium. Magnesium is necessary for muscle contraction, stimulates energy conversion and improves the electrolyte balance. Magnesium also improves focus. Elete Sportdruppels also contain a decent amount of sodium, potassium and chloride. 

Tested for doping
Elete Sportdruppels are certified doping-free and have the NZVT certificate to prove it. 

EleteTM is a trademark from Mineral Resources International (MRI), Utah, USA

Forget about exercising to lose weight: you can't outrun a bad diet! 

A few days ago, an article showed up in my newsfood about a remarkable result of research done on the Hadza tribe in Tanzania, which still leads a traditional hunter-gatherer lifestyle. 
Despite walking an average of a multiple of ten thousands of steps every day, they barely need more calories than the average couch potato in a Western country. 
That same day I discussed with an old friend who had read the same news story. He told me how he had trained for a marathon in the past, but barely dropped any weight while doing so. Only when he spent a week on liquid foods at a spa, he succeeded in losing weight which he mostly thanks to the relaxed environment. Otherwise it was next to impossible. Apparently his body really clung to its precious body fat! 
 
But how was this possible? We didn't really know though we had our suspicions. I I could tell much about the same story. Yes, I'd drop weight pretty fast in the first few weeks of the cycling season or on a longer cycling holiday, but would get stuck at my regular (still too heavy) summer weight while I wasn't really inhaling tons of food. Except then for the Route des Cent Cols during which I could barely eat enough to stay fit and sleep well for all those mountains. 
 
Let's find out more about this particular research!
 
When Herman Pontzer set off for the rugged savannah of Tanzania to spend a summer with the local Hadza people, he thought he knew what he would find. As an evolutionary biologist, his aim was to measure how the Hadza’s hunter-gatherer lifestyle causes them to burn more energy. Because we all know the more exercise you do, the more calories you burn and the slimmer you become, right? Well no, not exactly.
Don’t expect any meaningful weight change in the long term from exercise alone.”
 
What Pontzer and his fellow researchers discovered flew in the face of received wisdom about how our metabolism works. Although the Hadza lead far more active lives than ours – routinely walking long distances, they undertake more physical activity daily than the typical American does in a week – their energy expenditure was no greater. They were burning the same number of calories as men and women from industrialised populations. Our bodies, concluded Pontzer, seem to maintain daily energy expenditure within a narrow window, no matter what lifestyle we lead. While obesity is largely caused by overconsumption, it appears there’s little we can do to change the calories we burn.
 

Common foods that are dangerous for our pets

Last week we sold SAM-e to a dog owner who had been told by her vet to give it to her dog that accidentally was poisoned eating xylitol.
Xylitol, I asked in disbelief? That sweetener that is recommended by each dentist to use as a chewing gum because it is even healthy for us?
Yes, indeed, xylitol can and will poison your pet as it can't process it and as a result will cause damage to the liver.

After having induced vomiting, and being put on intubation to keep fluids up, the dog could go back home with his owner with the advice to give it one tablet of SAM-e every day in order to heal the liver.

Most of you probably also didn't know either how xylitol can be poisonous for pets. Which begs the question: what foods that we love to eat are poisonous for cats and dogs and should never be fed to them?


If your pet eats any of these things then the best thing to do is to get advice straight away from your local vet. Don't wait until they are developing problems because by then it could be too late. It will certainly be much more expensive. Don't leave them lying around and make sure they are stored away safely in cupboards. Preferably ones your pet can't open!

Here's a list of the most common poisonous foods that can kill your dog or cat.

Healthy bowel function: how does normal poop look like?

One of the major challenges during a heatwave is to drink enough water, so you don't end up dehydrated because the body evaporates so quickly. 
One of the more painful results of dehydration is needing to spend much more time in the restroom, sometimes even resulting in a hemorrhage. 
Vice versa, we eat more salads and BBQ-foods, both of which are known to cause diarrhea due to improper preparation or preservation. 
 
It is quite obvious that in order to have a pleasant and not too long stay in the restroom, our stools should neither contain too little nor too much water. Most of us will probably have a habit of quickly inspecting their stool, even if it is just the brief moment before flushing it down the toilet. Apart from observing the consistency of your stool, what else can you observe from inspecting your stool?

What are the different types of poop?

Poop, also known as stool or feces, is a normal part of the digestive process. Poop consists of waste products that are being eliminated from the body. It may include undigested food particles, bacteria, salts, and other substances such as improperly absorbed drugs.
 
Sometimes, poop can vary in its colour, texture, amount, and odor. These differences can be worrying, but usually, these changes are not significant and will resolve in a day or two. Other times, however, changes in poop indicate a more serious condition.

Food poisoning

By this time of year, it has become warm enough to spend more time in our gardens. We don't just spend time gardening, but will want to dine here, too. And possibly prepare food on the BBQ or at least prepare a food buffet on holidays such as Kings Day. Unfortunately, a festive meal especially during warm weather is almost automatically associated with stomach bugs.

For elderly persons, the cause of food poisoning is mostly different. They have frequently been raised in a time of food scarcity and are less prone to discard food that is past its expiration date. Or as happening during the current lockdown, they will want to go grocery shopping as little as possible, so they may be eating food that would have been discarded otherwise. However, at their age, they will become sick more easily due to reduced immunity than a young person who has less qualms about throwing out spoiled food.

Foodborne illness, more commonly referred to as food poisoning, is the result of eating contaminated, spoiled, or toxic food. The most common symptoms of food poisoning include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Although it’s quite uncomfortable, food poisoning isn’t unusual. According to reliable data 1 in 6 persons will contract some form of food poisoning every year.

Food poisoning symptoms

If you have food poisoning, chances are it won’t go undetected. Symptoms can vary depending on the source of the infection. The length of time it takes for symptoms to appear also depends on the source of the infection, but it can range from as little as 1 hour to as long as 28 days. Common cases of food poisoning will typically include at least three of the following symptoms:

Exercise and immunity: staying fit at home

When you are used to go to a gym to exercise and are forced to stay at home, it is good to know there are alternatives to gym workouts. Since most of those exercises are shown on short videos with an explanation we will not present much text this time , apart from explaining why exercise is so important for immune system.

How to prepare for a quarantine such as COVID-19

Like most of you, we have been following the news on the COVID-19 virus pandemic closely since early January.
With a rapid increase of both infections and people who have been in contact with infected persons, the amount of people who need to go into quarantine, rapidly increases too. Never mind how the entire population in Italy is forced to stay inside with more countries to follow soon.

With ever stricter rules in place, people suddenly realized they are not prepared for events like this, and started buying goods left and right without much of a plan.
Like most of you, I have also not given this much thought, so it stands to reason to go take a look in the USA where 'prepping' for disasters is popular, and rightly so because of the more dramatic weather conditions. Because people in North America generally live much further away from supermarkets and do not always have access to good tap water and electricity power may go off for longer periods of time,most advice given is superfluous for our society where power outages are rare and tap water reliable.
Hence that part of the advice was omitted in the article below.

What is quarantine?

The main rule of quarantine is: "nobody comes in and nobody goes out". If you are in quarantine, you are distancing yourself from people aside from the ones in quarantine with you, like your family or roommates. The reason for this is to stop the spread of an illness or possible illness.

Which nutritional supplements can you give to your pet?

Just as many pet parents are paying more attention these days to the quality of food they feed their companion animals, they are also realizing the potential benefits of nutritional supplements.

Supplements are becoming more and more recognized as a valuable component of a comprehensive care program for pets.

The primary categories for supplements include joint support, skin and coat health, GI tract health, and liver and kidney support. A less well-known but equally important type of supplement supports healthy circulation, optimal immune function, the healthy presence of oxygen in tissues, and cardiovascular health.

Is 5G safe enough?

In the last few months, we've been bombarded with news about whether or not to cooperate with Huawei in the creation of a 5G-network, due to fear of being spied upon by the Chinese government.
However, it is rare to see concerns being spoken about the possible health effects of introducing a 5G-network, which is necessary in order to create the ability for the 'Internet of Things' (IoT).

What is 5G?

5G, also known as 5th generation mobile networks or wireless systems, is considered the next phase in mobile technology. These wireless systems are the transmitters that carry signals to our cell phones and other wireless devices.

While the public isn’t operating on 5G yet, it’s anticipated that over the next decade, most wireless carriers will shift to 5G technology. This transition is expected to bring better coverage, lower battery consumption, faster Internet connection speeds, and the ability to support a growing market of products other than phones and tablets that feature wireless integration.

Reducing salt intake, should you care?

In our last blog article I discussed the dangers of dehydration during a heat wave. It was also remarked how our bodies don't just lose fluid, but also lose salts. As if it isn't clear yet, you will not just need to drink more water during a heat wave, but also need to consume more salts.

Because we are are bombarded with well-intended advice to limit salt intake because the average person consumes too much salt by eating too much junkfood, you would almost forget how essential minerals are and more specifically, sodium is for our health.

Why we aren't supposed to eat so much sodium
When there’s extra sodium in your bloodstream, sodium pulls water into your blood vessels, increasing the total amount of blood inside your blood vessels. With more blood flowing through your blood vessels, blood pressure may increase too much.
Even if you don’t have high blood pressure, it is postulated that eating less sodium can help blunt the rise in blood pressure that occurs with age, and reduce your risk of heart attack, heart failure, stroke, kidney disease, osteoporosis, stomach cancer and even headaches.
The extra water in your body (from temporary high salt intake) can also lead to bloating which can feel very uncomfortable.

Why do elderly people suffer more easily from dehydration?

Normally, our summers tend to alternate between cooler and warmer days with plenty of rain, but at the moment we experience a prolonged period of unusually warm and dry weather. This is probably why it is not so common to warn against dehydration among elderly adults on hot summer days, which is a grave mistake. 
While even healthy younger adults have a hard time staying properly hydrated in the heat, elderly citizens have an especially hard time because they don't even drink enough in cooler weather.

It’s important to prevent dehydration because it’s a common cause of hospitalization in people over 65 and can even cause death.
Dehydration can also cause other major health problems like kidney stones, blood clot complications, passing out, rapid but weak pulse, and lowered blood pressure. Being properly hydrated is also very important for certain medications to work.

Because water has numerous functions in the human body, it is one of the most important nutrients and is essential in every life stage. However, with aging, the body’s mechanisms of water balance are disturbed, increasing the risk of dehydration among the elderly.
There are high rates of dehydration in the elderly population and dehydration is one of the ten most frequent diagnoses reported for hospitalisations of persons over 65 in the United States. 

How to make a habit out of good intentions

Sometimes you stumble on articles, that are too good to pass up on. For those who have started the year with good intentions, we are sharing an article on how to make a habit out of good intentions. It's written by a guy who changed his habits after he became a father and wanted to be a good parent by setting an example.

Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones.”
~Benjamin Franklin
You probably agree with that statement.

But, for you (and everyone else) the problem is that good habits are hard to form and bad habits are easy to keep.
It is certainly true for me. Like most of us, I meant to start exercising for about six years after I started my career.
But it never happened. I’d do it for two or three weeks here and there, but nothing that ever stuck.
Then, all of a sudden, it did.

And it did because something changed for me. I had a son that was old enough to mimic me and that I wanted to be able to keep up with for the next twenty years. That scared me straight essentially.

In a number of areas in my life, including fitness, I realized he was going to base a significant portion of his view of how to live life and what habits were important off of what he watched me do.
So I stopped acting like I was going start exercising and I actually did it.

To create my new habit, I used a combination of the techniques below. You can use them to firm up your new habit and get your good habit quotient up.

A multivitamin a day keeps the doctor away 

With so many supplements available, and a lot of supplement advertisements in sports magazines targeted at athletes, one is rarely seen: ads for a multivitamin and mineral. 

When you think about supplements, what are the first thoughts that go through your mind? Whey protein, nitric oxide, creatine, fat burners, or maybe something else? These are the ones that consume the ads.

What if I told you though that the most important supplement that you must have in your arsenal is not on this list? That is your basic multivitamin. From the chewable ones you took as a kid to the ones you have now. Oh, you don't take them? If not, you better change that immediately if you want to meet your fitness goals.

For the human body to complete all the tasks it has in a normal day, it must be given a wide and complex variety of vital nutrients. Becoming deficient in any one of these essential vitamins or minerals causes breakdown of the metabolic pathway that produces optimum efficiency and performance goes down quick. Obviously, this is NOT what you want!

Training in the heat

After a warm spring and a seemingly endless monsoon in June, the hottest days of summer are lying ahead. For those of us, that want to train in the heat, a few tips for hot weather training.

Listen to signals from your body: don't hesitate to stop exercising when you feel lightheaded, disoriented or nauseous.
Don't start on a new and challenging training program in the heat: you should be fit already, so the body only needs to adapt to the heat instead of both the heat and a higher training performance.
