Health Benefits of Riding a Motorcycle

There are a lot of Health Benefits of Riding a Motorcycle. Research has shown that not only are there physical benefits to riding a motorcycle, but there are mental benefits to riding a motorcycle as well.

Tohoku University studied the effects between brain stimulation and riding a motorcycle. Their research showed…

  • Riding a motorcycle activates prefrontal areas of the brain.
  • Differences in brain use and level of brain stimulation can be observed in motorcyclists who ride regularly and in motorcyclists who have not ridden for extended periods.
  •  Incorporating motorcycle riding into daily life improves various cognitive functions and has positive effects on mental and emotional health such as stress reduction.

The research data has also indicated the prefrontal area does not work as much when driving an automobile.

“Riding motorcycles helps keep drivers young by invigorating their brains,” says Ryuta Kawashima, Laboratory of the Department of Functional Brain Imaging, Institute of Development, Aging and Cancer at Tohoku University.

“Mental care is a very big issue in modern society,” said Kawashima. “I think we made an interesting stir here as data showed you can improve your mental condition simply by using motorbikes to commute.”

The research also shows that commuting by car and train increases stress.

This study was the first time the adverse impact of commuting conditions on work settings was documented.

  • Commuting by car & train elevates stress
  • Carpool passengers experience greater stress than carpool drivers
  • Carpooling was more stressful than solo driving
  • Higher traffic congestion directly relates to less control, less control has a relationship to greater stress.
  • Different levels of stress between men & women.

Benefits of a Beard and Beard Care

Benefits Of A Beard
There are many reasons to grow a beard. and there are also many benefits that come from having a beard. Some great benefits from having a beard are that they keep your face warm in the winter and keep your lips from getting chapped. There’s also a lot of scientific research that shows that a beard is also healthy for you.

A study from the University of Southern Queensland in Australia has found that a big secret to being healthy is a big beard.  They stated the 5 biggest benefits of a beard are…

1) Beards protect your face from the sun.  Men with beards are exposed to 30% fewer UV rays on their face.
2) Beards can trap allergens that might cause asthma attacks.
3) They keep water from leaving your skin, which keeps it moisturized and makes a person’s face AGE more slowly.
4) They raise your neck temperature, which helps fight colds.

Beard Care And Growth
Beard care is important, regardless if you just started growing your beard or have been growing your beard for a while. Some good tips for a healthy beard are too clean your beard with natural soap such as Grandpa’s Pine Tar Soap. Grandpa’s Pine Tar Soap won’t strip your beard’s natural oils and helps prevent dandruff. Another good product for your beard is Culligan’s Filtered Showerhead. Tap water contains contaminents and chemicals such as chlorine, lead, copper and bacteria. These contaminants will also create irritation and rashes of your skin as well as it will dry out your hair and beard. Skin pores widen while showering, making dermal absorption of chlorine and other chemicals possible. If you have a water softener than there’s no need for a filtered showerhead.

How long a beard grows and how nice it looks also has a lot to do with exercise and how healthy you are. You should get plenty of exercise and eat healthy.

Another great product to help your beard is called Vitabeard. Vitabeard are vitamins specially formulated for facial hair. Below is a list of the benefits you will get from taking Vitabeard.

Prevent Beard Itch
Beta Carotene (Vitamin A) helps reduce the secretion of oil and thus may help prevent the clogging of facial oil glands and the buildup of beard dandruff.

Strong Facial Hair
In addition to many well-known antioxidant/immunity benefits, Vitamin C assists in the production of collagen and can help prevent dry, splitting hair.

Beard Shine & Sheen
Vitamin E assists circulation in the body, bringing oxygen and nutrients in the blood to the hair follicles, and is responsible for nice skin and hair sheen.

Facial Hair Support
Often called the “hair vitamins,” B Vitamins are essential to hair growth and quality. VitaBeard™ packs a complete set, and lots of it. Additionally, B Vitamins play a vital role in energy production.

Beard Growth
Biotin, also known as Vitamin H (for hair!), aids in cell growth and many other metabolic reactions in the body. Biotin is essential for healthy hair and higher quantities may help prevent hair loss in some men.

Prevent Hair Loss
Zinc can prevent hair loss, and is vital for immune system wellness. Easily depleted, Zinc deficiency is often the cause of many hair and skin issues, including slow facial hair growth and facial hair falling out.

Healthy Facial Hair
A natural sulfur compound, MSM is essential for optimum health and helps to nourish your facial hair and skin.

Horsetail Extract
Containing the highest known content of silicon in any herb, Horsetail Extract strengthens hair follicles to grow stronger and healthier hair.

Supplementing with Para-Aminobenzoic Acid (PABA) can prevent hair from going gray and may restore gray hair to its original color if the graying was caused by stress or a nutritional deficiency.
