VR’s impact on Football and the Superbowl By Steven Runnels

Augmented Reality, however, while not as interesting to some, has much more potential for use in active exercise. Because AR technology uses visual input from the user’s actual surroundings, it is much easier and safer for users to be active while wearing an AR device without worrying about running into things. Furthermore, many AR applications are currently used on mobile devices with a head-mount, meaning that they don’t need to be plugged in, which also allows for greater freedom of movement free from chords to trip over or come unplugged from a bulky console

Does GNC Super Bowl Ad Rejection Show NFL Supplement Bias? by  Steve Myers

Currently there is a lot of bias in the nutritional supplement industry. I have personally seen it with launching my own line. I think that people are gun shy because of all the un-regulation where people would produce products that were not super awesome and would market and promise the crap out of them… However supplements do work and those that are taking them are secretly seeing better results!!!

Best Diet and Exercise Articles January 29, 2017

These are the top health articles I find around the web that I think are cutting edge, cool, and just plain awesome!

As we are pretty much finished with the month of January, I wonder how many people are still following their resolution to get in better shape? I have always thought that if people truly wanted to get in shape they could! The question I would ask them is if you were to “win” one million dollars this week, do you think you would have any problem losing 2lbs? The difference is how people change their thought process. So maybe the best thing to do is to try and determine how bad you want it? How much it is worth it to you, and instead of “wishing” your results… think about it as if you were going to win a million dollars this week!

Many studies saying breakfast aides weight loss may be industry funded by http://www.deccanchronicle.com/

Cereal makers have happily encouraged the belief that eating breakfast can help keep us thin and bring other benefits, partly by paying for studies that seem to support the idea.

So, does that mean breakfast is bad for you? Not that either. What it does show is how difficult it can be to sort the hype from reliable dietary advice when studies are funded by the makers of Froot Loops, nutrition science is often inconclusive, and gray areas can be spun for marketing.

2017 Ingredient Trends to Watch for Food, Drinks, and Dietary Supplements: Adaptogens for Stress Relief By

Supplement products geared toward stress relief are an up-and-coming sight on store shelves, and few ingredient categories are better positioned to capitalize on this emerging trend than adaptogens. Adaptogenic herbs often hail from areas with harsh climactic conditions, such as the Peruvian mountain tops where maca (Lepidium meyenii) grows or the deserts ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is native to. The same bioactive components that allow those plants to withstand environmental stressors may also help people in dealing with stress of their own, explains Kartikeya Baldwa, director of Ixoreal Biomed (Los Angeles).
