If you have older parents or are older, Vita Coco or some brand of coconut water every day is an especially good preventive of heat related illnesses during the summer. It is a natural electrolyte that prevents dehydration and hyponatremia. Athletes also need an electrolyte replacement in the heat.
It's simply good practice to drink this "natural supplement" every day. No added sugar or chemicals and a boatload of potassium. Personally I have to watch sugar intake so I drink the plain type but there are some tasty flavors.
You can usually find it in grocery stores but lately, they cannot keep up with demand. So make sure to order some so you have it on hand. Here in the South, it's getting hot already and I can tell you that drinking some of this before and after a run has made a huge difference in how I feel. Lately many have mentioned that it's great for weight control. That's a nice side effect.
It's going to be decided tonight. In LA. Jack Nicholson has yet to call and offer us an extra ticket on his row.
We're taking bets who it will be. Not real bets but your best guess. Since it's in LA and they delivered a spanking on the last match up, most would go with LA particularly with the home court advantage. This has been a good series and it's gone down to the wire.
It was always Mandela's dream to bring the FIFA World Cup to South Africa. On Friday that dream was marked by a tragedy.
Mandela's 13 year old granddaughter was killed in a car wreck and he had to cancel his appearance. According to police reports, the great granddaughter, Zenani, died in a one-car accident on a Johannesburg highway. The man driving, who has yet to be named, was accused of driving drunk and may also be charged with culpable homicide.
For obvious reasons, Mandela will not be at the opening ceremonies.
The presence of Mr. Mandela, 91 years old, at S. Africa's first time hosting FIFA was expected to be an emotional highpoint and one of South Africa’s proudest moments.
Even before the accident on Friday, there had been questions about whether his frail health would allow him to attend. Mandela has lead a life of many triumphs but also many tragedies.
I just spend a few hours with a dentist yesterday discussing several topics and she mentioned the Makkar Advantage mouth guard. There are two main types--one for athletes who don't want it to show (i.e. golfers) and one for athletes who want this device not only for its performance enhancement qualities but for its ability to protect your mouth and teeth (i.e. hockey players).
How does a mouth guard enhance performance?
Apparently proper jaw alignment is key to top performance. This Makkar mouth guard, and there are several levels from amateur to pro athletic version, aligns the jaw and when placed in the mouth, it has the instant effect of perfecting your performance.
This enhanced alignment position allows the body to operate much more efficiently. If your jaw is not in alignment, your body short circuits which impedes performance. Shaquille O'Neal endorses the appliance as do a number of professional athletes.
PPM = Pure Power Mouth Guard
The device, once properly fitted and this is a KEY step to the process, provides instant improvement in balance, range of motion (ROM), flexibility, explosive speed and strength. Golfers, baseball players, football players etc can benefit from this device. In sports where a split second matters, this can be crucial. And it's absolutely legal performance enhancement. It's not against the law to protect your teeth while aligning your jaw.
We'll be writing a more in-depth article about this device and how it specifically effects particular sports and the types and levels of these PPM devices.
