Cheap Vacation Tips

March 30th, 2010

The biggest tip that I can recommend when it comes to finding a cheap vacation is to use all inclusive travel. This may be a tour bus, it may be a cruise, though I would not actually recommend cruises if you really want to see a country. It can be fun to use a cruise to just relax and take a break. But for real vacations to specific countries or regions, bus tours for all inclusive travel are actually better.

So what are the advantages of all inclusive travel for cheap vacations? Well, first of all, they often lump all charges into one charge so that you don’t have to worry about it. But in addition to that, you also get other benefits. They actually get all of the cheaper deals and pass the savings onto you with all of these companies. Because they are working with groups instead of individuals, they are willing to give you better group rates to fill their buses and planes and otherwise.

Now you can use coupons, stay in hostels, and otherwise try to make it on your own. I have done that, and in college I went with friends. It was a lot of fun. But when you’re working with families, and even in college, it doesn’t actually save you money to do so, sometimes the 2 star hotels can be a little scary, and those options are becoming more expensive than ever before. But all inclusive travel gives you more value. Yes, you may spend some time on a bus. But traveling between countries in Europe, you would be spending time on planes, trains, etc anyway. So it’s not that different in that way. But you are getting far better benefits, far better travel, and so much in terms of the prices in general.

Horny Goat Weed for Natural Male Enhancement

November 25th, 2009

Otherwise known as epimedium, horny goat weed is perhaps, one of the best known ingredient in over the counter male enhancement pills. It is an important herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and it has been used in products ranging from well known TV products such as Extenze to slightly more affordable products that you will not find on TV. This in mind, what’s so special about horny goat weed, and what makes it such an effective ingredient for over the counter male enhancement?

Well, let’s start out first with the history. Where did horny goat weed come from? The origins of horny goat weed lie in myths, in stories. Nobody actually knows how it was first discovered. But the myth tells you where it got its name. Some believe that a Chinese goat herder was out with his flock when he noticed some of his goats being more active and animated than usual. After this, he noticed that his goats had been eating this herb known as horny goat weed, and so it was named.

Now whether you believe this or not, whether or not the story itself is actually plausible, horny goat weed does have its benefits on the human sex drive. It is a legendary aphrodisiac used in just about every over the counter male enhancement product on the market. When blended with other ingredients of the right type, it can improve testosterone levels, sexual stamina, and some would even say natural sperm count in men.

So where are the clinical studies? We all know that the industry in general loves ingredients found in Traditional Chinese Medicine. But is this one of those that actually has some basis in reality? Definitely. First of all, it has been shown in studies on rabbits to actually relax the smooth muscles in the rabbit penis. Likewise, it has been known to increase the body’s level of nitric oxide, which they say explains its ability to relax smooth muscle. It has also been shown to increase the blood flow through the penis, which is of course connected to the ability to achieve an erection among other things.

Studies have shown that ultimately speaking, horny goat weed, just like sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra, naturally inhibits the activity of PDE-5. So what does this mean for you? It means that essentially speaking, horny goat weed can work similarly to prescriptions like Levitra, Viagra, and otherwise without the side effects and without the high cost. In short, were you to find a good product that used horny goat weed as products like Extenze do, you could see results similar to those of a much more expensive and complicated prescription option. The trick is finding the right amounts, which unfortunately, you will not find in Enzyte.

The good news is that while Enzyte does not measure up or properly use a natural ingredient that obviously has endless possibilities, there is a product that does. If you look at a product now known as Orexis, it has all the right ingredients such as horny goat weed, and unlike Enzyte, it actually has the right amounts. So check Orexis out for the best results without any side effects!

Stretch To Lose Weight

August 31st, 2009

I remember my weights teacher in high school.  He was a great guy, and he had this thing about telling us that if he even looked at a piece of cake, he would gain 3 pounds.  Realistically in ever thought that was true, but he insisted upon it, and he was a huge guy to say the least, and it wasn’t muscle.  However, he was always stressing one thing when he talked about workouts.  Yes, he had the idea that you should actually switch between areas of the body from day to day doing upper body one day and lower body the next to just give your muscles time to heal I guess you could say. 

But his big stress was stretching.  He liked to talk about these guys he would see at the gym who couldn’t even touch their back really because they had focused so much on lifting at the expense of stretching that they had lost basically all flexibility, and moreover when they were lifting, they weren’t making the full extensions, which only added to the greater problem.  Flexibility is important to any sport and avoiding injury in general.  So yes, he had a point.  So while doing the full extensions at all times when lifting is important, you also have to do extra stretching outside that.  The best time is actually when your muscles are heated up, because then you will be able to stretch farther and really give them what they need.
