100 Steps For Health
Did you know that 100 steps is all that it could take in order for you to be considered healthy?
One, zero zero. That's it. 100 steps a minute and you'll be feeling better than you did before your walk or brisk jog.
The new study, that was posted in June in an issue of British Journal of Sports Medicine was solely devoted to the subject of walking.
For years, most health organizations reported that walking at a brisk pace is considered good exercise, but nobody (until now) has defined what exactly constitutes a brisk pace.
The answer, is 100.
100 steps per minute is an easy to figure out number for anyone to either count in their head, their fitness tracker, or their phone. From 18 to the elderly, the number of average recommended steps is 100.
It's wonderful because walking requires absolutely zero additional equipment or previous knowledge of exercise routines at all. You just get up and start doing it. Whether you're inside or outside, on the go or at home, you can always walk - and now you have a goal to aim for!
The study also maintains that just because we walk 100 steps in one minute, that does not mean you should sit down and stop walking once you've hit 100. The current guidelines are about 30 minutes of brisk walking most days which would be three thousand steps walked at 100 steps a minute pace.
If you're feeling extra amped up, you can always pump it up a bit, or even lower than 100. But with this new information, we now have an easy to follow guideline of how many steps to take.
Dr. Nick has been practicing medicine for over 10 years. After finishing his MD he began his residency in Laboratory Medicine where he gained first hand knowledge of some of the effects of dietary supplements. Dr. Nick now specializes in gastrointestinal health, Over the years of vigorous study and in-depth experimenting with a variety of dietary supplements Dr. Nick found that there are few sources of clear, evidence-backed, honest information about what the supplements can help achieve - and what they cannot. There are many companies out there selling promises without providing results.
Dr. Nick's goal is to educate the general public and do his part to help the world get healthy again. The industry needed an honest educated practitioner to reveal the real benefits of specific dietary supplements and to unbiasedly dig into the formulas and companies selling these formulas to reveal the true Pros and Cons of each supplement and to educate the general public about these ingredients found in various dietary supplements. Dr. Nick promoting general health and proper use of nutritional supplements is step one of the goal. In order to get the best effects without wasting time and money, a proper understanding of chemistry and human physiology are critically important. Since not everyone has the time to master these topics, Dr. Nick hopes to help clarify otherwise complicated topics and give the best, clear, evidence-backed input to help each person select the most appropriate supplements.
