ExerClock Software Helps People in Sedentary Jobs to Improve Wellness and Prevent Sitting Disease


Hartland, WI (PRWEB) May 27, 2015

Fueled by the growing health epidemic linked to our society’s technology-driven, inactive employee workforce, Milwaukee-area Physical Therapist Cory Schneider has launched ExerClock, a new software application that reminds individuals and employees to exercise at work in the form of short micro-exercise videos performed throughout the day to break up prolonged periods of sitting. ExerClock helps employees boost metabolism, burn calories, and ward off metabolic disorders such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease that are common among sedentary employees.

“It’s troubling to me that approximately 70 percent of Americans spend at least 6-8 hours a day sitting, mostly at work. It is costing U.S. businesses more than $ 90 billion each year to treat diseases and conditions that stem from a lack of physical activity, which are commonly referred to as ‘sitting disease’,” said Schneider.

Individual ExerClock memberships are great for work-from-home employees, individuals with health risks, or even dedicated athletes and fitness buffs who desire to protect their health and wellness. While corporate memberships are available, individuals can sign up for ExerClock without having to go through an employer, leveraging this new technology as yet another way to keep themselves fit and moving throughout the day.

“I developed ExerClock to empower people to be more active, to take control of their health, and to increase their productivity throughout the work day. It’s time to put a stop to the ‘metabolic shutdown’ that occurs when our bodies don’t move. ExerClock is a terrific tool that gives us all that needed reminder, as well as the exercises to perform throughout our busy days. We are stimulating physical activity that leads to healthier, more productive lifestyles that help curb spiraling health care costs,” said Schneider.

Prompted Mini-Workouts Improve Wellbeing

ExerClock features a customizable computer reminder coupled with micro-exercises (brief exercise sessions, 1.5-3.5 minutes in duration) that are performed routinely throughout the day to stimulate metabolism and reduce the negative effects that prolonged sitting has on our bodies.

A 2009 study published by the American College of Sports Medicine reported that those who were most sedentary had a 50 percent increased risk of an early death, regardless of their fitness level.

“This means that even those who exercise regularly outside of work will benefit from breaking up prolonged periods of sitting with ExerClock’s reminders and micro-exercises during their work day,” said Schneider.

Individuals can schedule the timing of their exercise reminders, choose the video length (one to three minutes), the type of micro-exercise (yoga, lower back and neck, legs, core, carpal tunnel and more) and intensity (beginner, intermediate or advanced). They can also track their goals and progress in a customizable, personalized dashboard.

Additional Features Available

For wellness enthusiasts, ExerClock also can also be used in conjunction with fitness bands, such as fitbit®, to track nutrition and physical activity. For an additional fee, users can also consult with registered dietitians and fitness experts for custom dietary and fitness plans. Subscribers can also find recommended active office furniture like stand-up desks, as well as exercise equipment and nutritional supplements for sale through the website.

NutriSaver Responds to Frequently Asked Questions About Whey Protein Supplements, And Why They Are Beneficial For People With Active Lifestyles in There New Blog Post


West New York, New Jersey (PRWEB) April 07, 2015

Whey protein contains a wide range of essential amino acids, which are absorbed quickly. However not all proteins are created equal. Some forms of protein, such as whey protein isolates might be better for people with sensitive digestion systems.

Whey Protein is one of the best studied supplements in the world. There are many brands and formulas of Whey Protein and typically comes in two major forms which are listed below.

Whey Concentrates which typically have a low (but still significant) level of fat and cholesterol but, in general, compared to the other forms of whey protein, have higher levels of bioactive compounds, and carbohydrates in the form of lactose they are 29%–89% protein by weight.

Whey Isolates are processed to remove the fat, and lactose, but are usually lower in bio activated compounds as well they are 90%+ protein by weight. Isoaltes are ultimately a purer formula and optimal for individuals who want to use whey protein for weightloss. Like whey protein concentrates, whey protein isolates are mild to slightly milky in taste.

Whey protein is absorbed and utilized very quickly in the body. Whey protein is composed of amino acids which are the building blocks of muscle fibers. It also increases the anabolic hormones that stimulate muscle growth and contains leucine, which is known to trigger muscle protein synthesis. Whey protein has been shown to be particularly effective at increasing muscle growth when consumed right before, after or during a workout, but muscle protein synthesis is usually maximized in the time period after training. The window is roughly up to 45 minuets after physical activity.

Aside from building muscle growth and strength, whey protein can also help with weight loss. Taking whey increases protein intake and has major benefits for weight loss. Protein can boost metabolism by 80 to 100 calories per day, and makes individuals that intake protein less hungry and eat less calories per day. Studies have shown that replacing other sources of calories with whey protein and combined with weight lifting can cause weight loss while increasing lean muscle mass. If you’re trying to lose weight, then consumption of a whey protein formula will help with both, losing weight and building growth and strength for your muscles.

Over all, whey protein is both beneficial for muscle growth and health, from amino acids to rebuilding and maintaining muscle strength. However consuming too can cause digestive issues such as nausea, flatulence, diarrhea, pain and cramping. A commonly recommended dosage is 1-2 scoops, which is around 25-50 grams, per serving and usually taken after a workout. It is highly recommended to follow the serving instruction on the packaging. If regular whey protein concentrate is too harsh, then Whey isolate may be more appropriate.

The top 3 Best Whey Protein Supplements From NutriSaver.com are; Muscle Tech Phase 8 , Optimum Nutrition 100% Gold Standard, and B.S.N. Syntha-6, USP Labs Oxyelite Protein and Metabolic Nutrition Protizyme.

At the end of the day,whey protein is an exceptionally healthy way to add more protein to any diet. It is a quality protein source that is absorbed and utilized efficiently by the human body. This is particularly important for athletes, bodybuilders, or individuals who need to gain muscle mass and strength, while losing weight at the same time. When it comes to muscle gain and fat loss, protein is the king of nutrients. For More information on this topic please refer to our blog post What is Whey Protein.

Sara Soulati, Global Cardio Care CEO, Suggests 10 Tips For Managing Holiday Blues for People with CardiovascularDisease


Los Angeles CA (PRWEB) December 17, 2014

Sara Soulati, Global Cardio Care CEO and founder, today announced a series of health tips for people living with cardiovascular disease and diabetes who struggle through the holiday season. Sara invented the Sara Soulati Health For Life Program to make health a lifestyle and coach people to become champions for healthier longevity. The program encourages people to adopt a daily routine that includes plant-based nutrition and moderate exercise.

Studies show that heart disease, depression and holidays comingle, and people suffer more from depression during November and December when stress and anxiety are higher.

“The biggest culprit for everyone during the holidays is food,” said Sara Soulati, CEO of Global Cardio Care, Inc. and founder of the Sara Soulati Health For Life Program. “Making poor food choices and eating higher quantities of an animal-based diet with refined carbohydrates contribute to heart disease, heart attack and stroke. At Global Cardio Care, our patients have adopted a plant-based diet with EECP®. They feel great, their outlook on life is more positive, and they have more hope for the future.”

Sara Soulati Health For Life Program™ Holiday Tips

Sara Soulati offers the following tips for people with heart disease who struggle with holiday depression, stress or anxiety:

1.    When dining out or attending holiday parties, be mindful of animal-based foods and refined carbohydrates. People with diabetes should limit their food intake to organic whole grain, gluten-free choices and those with heart disease should avoid an animal-based diet and refined carbohydrates to keep cholesterol levels balanced.

2.    Overeating holiday meals higher in animal-based diet has been linked to heart attack or stroke for people suffering from cardiovascular disease. Ensure you eat sooner than 7 p.m., and if you are having a late dinner, then eat smaller quantities.

3.    Make food choices that are organic, gluten free and low in refined carbohydrates. This means eating whole grain carbohydrates and high quantities of vegetables. Plant-based nutrition is the core of the Sara Soulati Health For Life Program that Makes Health A Lifestyle.™

4.    Drink plenty of water in the morning every day to flush and detox the body. Drink reverse-osmosis alkaline water.

5.    Incorporate moderate exercise into your daily routine such a vigorous walk for one hour in the morning. This helps get the blood circulating, helps detox and starts your body’s engine to greet the day.

6.    During your morning exercise, take deep breaths and observe your natural surroundings. Take time to appreciate the sun’s warmth, a bird chirping or the color of the cloudy sky.

7.    Calm yourself inside to be at peace and give thanks for everything good in your life while embracing the negatives as lessons for improvement.

8.    Love yourself first so you can send love outward and receive someone’s smile.

9.    Touch people with kind words and let them feel your loving heart.

10.    Practice meditation with deep breathing technique to visualize the positive and erase the negative.
