January 13, 2019

 

Ask any nutritionist what are some of the best foods you can eat, and most likely you will hear the vegetable "Broccoli" mentioned. 

Ask any health counsolor or family doctor what forms of exercise can boost your health and help you look and feel great, and you may very well hear, "bike riding".  

 

So in this blog we will look at how "The Two B's - Broccoli and Bikes", can help you live longer, healthier, and happier!

 

To start with broccoli is packed with Vitamans and Minerals. 

 

Vitamin K – essential for the functioning of many proteins involved in blood clotting

Vitamin C – builds collagen, which forms body tissue and bone, and helps cuts and wounds heal. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and protects the body from damaging free radicals.

Fiber – diets high in fiber promote digestive health. A high fiber intake can also help lower cholesterol.

Potassium – a mineral and electrolyte that is essential for the function of nerves and heart contraction.

Folate – is necessary for the production and maintenance of new cells in the body.

 

The Bike - Riding the bike is no impact and can help your body in a variety of ways, including and not limited to lower blood pressure, weight management, and healthier skin to name a few. 

 

I recommend 30 to 60 mins per ride, 4 days a week.  Do this consistantly and you will be well on your way to having a very simple and effective cardio program.
