The latest from teacher and forager, Max Gordon
Here is your weekly dose of Foraging Friday, a list of what I’m pondering and exploring in the world of ReWilding. I hope you had a good thanksgiving. Thank you for supporting my work. Please consider checking out these seasonal products for you are your family:
1) Saunaspace: Infrared, low-EMF sauna
2) Bulletproof: low-carb, high-fat fuels
3) Powerplate: whole-body, vibration technology (use “maxgordon” at checkout)
What i’m researching
The following is an excerpt from a 2015 journal article called “Sprinters versus Long-distance Runners: How to Grow Old Healthy”, by Kusy, Krzysztof
“There are, however, differences in the profile of benefits: long-term sprint-oriented training more effectively promotes bone mineral density, muscle mass, neuromuscular function, and probably training adherence, whereas endurance training is more effective in maintaining high aerobic capacity and cardiovascular function as well as optimal glucose metabolism and lipid profile across the lifespan.
Both training models seem to facilitate keeping low fat mass effectively. The risk of tendinopathy is similar in both groups and higher than in the general population, but the injury rate during competition is higher in sprinters.
Competitive master athletes participating in long-term intensive endurance training regimens may have a somewhat higher risk of deleterious cardiovascular structural and functional changes than the general population.”
Quote i’m pondering
“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.” – C.S. Lewis
“N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) maintains cellular health: NAC can help to support healthy brain and neuronal tissues.”
Have a wonderful weekend, all.
Much love to you and yours,
My friend Jesse is from Nanuet, New York and is the CEO of Freedom Forest. He’s been ReWilding food forests across the northeast for many years. A “freedom forest” is a food forest is an ecosystem that you can create in your backyard that offers you organic food, medicine, fiber, and wood. Examples are apple trees, pears, chestnuts, and milkweed.
We’re doing a special together. For the next few weeks, if use say Max has sent you, Jesse will give you 5% off your order! Email Jesse at “Freedomforest1@gmail.com”.
