Jessie's Grandpa Shines the Brightest!

This Father's Day, Jessie nominated her grandfather, Julio, for the Dad that Shines the Brightest Award - and after reading her letter - we at MenScience agree he deserves to win it.

Here's a little of what Jessie said about dear ol' grandad:

" My grandfather, Julio, is honestly the hardest working man I know. At age 80 you would think he would be retired by now, but he is still working hard to support my grandmother and make his children and grandchildren happy. My grandparents have raised ten beautiful children and now have plenty of grandchildren in which they both helped to raise.

Ever since I was a child, I remember going over to my grandparents house with my cousins and family members and doing ...all sorts of [outdoor] activities such as bike riding, playing ball, tennis in the backyard, even pulling weeds for my grandma. The amazing thing about it is how he could make a small bouncy ball into a fun game of basketball, or tennis, football, even soccer. Even at my age, I still enjoy going over to my grandparents house with my little sisters and so do his ten wonderful children... my aunts, uncles, and parents...

My grandfather is such an amazing person, father, and grandfather. He has worked every single day of his life ensuring my grandmother, myself, and my family all the happiness he can give us. He is an extraordinary person and I love him with all of my heart. He most definitely shines bright. He is my grandfather, my best friend, and most of all, my hero."

Besides an official MenScience certificate recognizing him as a stellar father and grandfather, Jessie's grandad Julio will soon receive a fun-in-the-sun Father's Day gift with four dazzling sun care products: the TiO2 Sunblock SPF 30, Advanced Lip Protection, Anti-Aging Formula and Pigmentation Repair Formula.

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.
