Xanax Tablets – What You Need To Know

Saturday, May 5th, 2018





xanaxOften at Project Swole we think about the effects of mental health on physical health. Without proper mental health, we are unable to lead a healthy lifestyle, possibly even ignoring fitness altogether. Today we would like to discuss one method of camouflaging mental health issues and mental distress – using the prescription drug Xanax – how and why you might use it, and a brief explanation of the risks involved. 

Studies reveal that more people are taking medication to deal with stress, anxiety, mental disorders, and insomnia among other discomforts. A huge chunk of this population consists of people who do not bother getting prescriptions for the right drug and the right dose.

Are you one of those individuals who take drugs based on your friend’s ailment?

That is wrong and creates a serious risk to your health!

Antidepressants and Benzodiazepines are medical drugs that are used to relieve some mental glitches and illnesses. The fact that they target your brain and how it sends transmissions throughout your body makes it a dangerous affair to self-diagnose and self-medicate. Xanax, Valium, and Klonopin are popular benzodiazepines that are used to produce a calming effect once they act on your nerves and brain.

How to Choose Sunscreen for Maximum Protection

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018





Bikini Sunbathing

Summer is nearly here and it has come to my attention that you are probably not using sunscreen, even when you plan to be outside in the sun for more than 4 hours. Not smart.

Here are some frightening sunscreen facts:

  • 31% of you are not using sunscreen, even if you are going to be outside for more than 4 hours
  • 27% of men wear sunscreen
  • 27% of parents with kids under 12 say they never or only sometimes put sunscreen on their kids
  • 14% of parents never put cream on their kids even if they will be outside for more than 4 hours.

I find most of those numbers unfortunate and disturbing, especially when kids are involved.

Exposure to the sun can cause age spots, sunburns, wrinkles, and contributes to skin cancer.

You and your kids should be wearing sunscreen on the face and all other exposed areas of the skin, each and every day of the summer.

However, in some men, these hair strands fall out, and none sprouts to replace them. As many as 85% of men will have a kind of hair loss at least once in their lifetime. Hair loss affects both men and women and the older we get, the higher our risk of developing it.

 

Recent studies have shown that hair loss affects 40% of men by the age of 35, 60% of men at 60, and 80% of men at the age of 80.
