Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s)

Your health, good or bad, is driven in large part by the level of inflammation in your body and theamount of lean muscle mass you have. In fact, there are several diseases (including obesity) thatare linked to inflammation and the lack of muscle mass.

When you control the inflammation in your body, you can effectively control the onset of
numerous diseases, including type II diabetes, heart disease, depression, arthritis and obesity.

Muscle mass decreases over time, especially when we are not eating enough protein and not
engaging in exercise. The less muscle mass we have, the more weight we will gain. Lean muscle
mass is crucial to keeping body fat at bay.

A healthy body is one that has low levels of inflammation and higher levels of muscle mass. Whilemany attribute high levels of inflammation and loss of muscle mass to aging, the fact is that wecan keep our bodies young through proper nutrition and exercise. We get old from the inside out.

So, it is important to keep inflammation down and exercise up.
