Acne Breakouts Can Be Triggered by Stress

YOU'VE GOT A BIG MEETING IN 2 DAYS... You've worked on your presentation for over a month and it's your one shot to make a big impression. But what's this? Pimples - whiteheads - blackheads - an enormous zit? The only impression you'll make is that of a pimple-faced teenager - not a seasoned professional!

How can you possibly have an acne breakout? You eat right, wash your face regularly with men's skincare products and use acne treatment products - and for goodness sakes - you're in your late 30's!

Once considered pure fiction, medical research has just begun affirming that there is a real connection between stress and acne. To help men avoid and treat stress induced acne (so they look great for the big meeting), MenScience has just released a new article, aptly entitled Acne Breakouts Can Be Triggered by Stress - Check it out!

Fabulous Fish Fat

OMEGA-3's are called 'essential fatty acids,' essential to men because the body can't manufacture them, so they must be derived from one's diet. Unfortunately, many men aren't getting adequate amounts.
What are they? According to the Mayo Clinic, omega-3 fatty acids comprise numerous polyunsaturated fatty acids, but the a-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acids (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acids (DHA) are the most important.

What do they do? Large population clinical studies have proven that DHA and EPA reduce the risk of death, heart attack, abnormal heart rhythms (known as arrhythmia), and stroke - especially amongst persons with a history of cardiovascular disease. Omega-3 fatty acids have also been found to lower cholesterol, blood pressure and slow artery hardening. Research has also shown that omega-3 fatty acids are beneficial for depression and anxiety, diabetes, asthma, poor learning and focus in children, rheumatoid arthritis, certain cancers, ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.

Where do they come from? Where ALA is mostly found in plant and nut oils, such as flaxseed oil, canola oil and walnuts and pumpkin seeds, the most readily available sources of EPA and DHA are cold-water fish like salmon, mackerel, anchovies, halibut, sardines and tuna.

How much is needed? For healthy men with no history of heart disease, the American Heart Association recommends eating a variety of fatty fish at least twice a week and including oils and other ALA rich foods in men's diets where possible. Many foods offer omega-3 supplementation, but the amounts are often negligible and are highly variable. To ensure men are getting adequate amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, doctors highly recommend omega-3 supplementation, especially for those men with high cholesterol.

Salt Seasoning Surplus or Shortness?

In the May issue of Men's Journal, there was an interesting editorial on salt seasoning. Citing a recent study from the Center for Science in the Public Interest, the article explained that although a reduction in sodium would be good for the vast majority of the population (saving upwards of 150,000 lives a year), salt cutbacks could be a bad thing for a small minority.

A special segment of the population, namely high endurance athletes, may not be getting enough salt. Men training for marathons, going on lengthy bike rides or competing in triathlons are at risk of salt deficiency. Sodium is needed because it keeps athletes hydrated, enabling the body to absorb fluids faster. On average, a marathoner will lose about 700 to 1,600 milligrams of sodium an hour.

To be sure you're getting adequate amounts of sodium in the summer heat, drink a 20 ounce bottle of a sport drink for each hour after intensive exercise and another immediately after to replenish lost fluids. To perform at optimal levels, athletic men should also be sure that their nutritional needs are cared for and that they're taking adequate sun care precautions to protect their skin from sun damage.

The 300 Workout

Spartans! Ready your breakfast and eat hearty... For tonight, we dine in hell! With these words, intermixed in a couple hours of blind, bloody gore, King Leonidas of 300, played by Gerard Butler, comes to life as one of the most celebrated heroes of all time.

The epic story of the Spartan 300's face off with the Persian armies has since joined Fight Club, Scarface and the Godfather Trilogies as a new classic for American men. Women don't mind watching either - as Gerard Butler's steely, muscular physique more than compensates for the blockbuster's revolting violence.

Besides pleasing to the ladies, Butler had to be the embodiment of one of the most legendary men of all time - and he needed a workout that would make him so. Renting the flick for a second time from blockbuster, I watched the special feature on the making of the movie - and saw clips of the grueling workout that made Gerard Butler a Spartan King and the cast of 300 larger than life. Men's Health also featured the topic, detailing what the '300-rep Spartan workout' consisted of. To see the Men's Health video explaining the workout, watch this.

In his interview with Men's Health, Butler explains, "You know that every bead of sweat falling off your head, every weight you've pumped - the history of that is all in your eyes. That was a great thing, to put on that cape and put on that helmet, and not have to think, Shit, I should have trained more. Instead, I was standing there feeling like a lion."

So when Kind Leonidas roared, "The world will know that free men stood against a tyrant, that few stood against many, and before this battle was over, even a god-king can bleed," Gerard Butler and Kind Leonidas were one and the same.

Maybe your summer workout won't be nearly as punishing as '300-rep Spartan workout,' but you're probably amped to get started - and see 300-like results - fast. Complement your workouts by taking MenScience's Thermogenic Formula for increased metabolic rate and weight loss, and the Advanced CLA Supplement Formula, which helps bolster muscle growth and decrease bodily fat for increases in lean muscle mass... You might not look like Butler, but in time, you'll could look like one of his cohorts.
