Bone broth isn’t a new thing. It’s actually been used by many cultures as a simple soup base for a very long time. More recently, though, it’s been taking the health community by storm—and for good reasons too! It’s packed with serious health benefits, from bone health to gut health.  

 

5. Interval Training

You might have heard of HIIT (high-intensity interval training) before, but what exactly is it? Simply put, it’s a very efficient way to work out. When you give cardio or other exercises your all for one minute followed by a rest period, your metabolism gets a boost. Now compare that to a low-intensity workout you’d have to do for a longer period of time to get the same result. Efficiency is key!

 

Health trends are always coming and going, so it’s always important to be as informed as possible about what’s actually good for you and what are health fads.
