The Near-Superhuman Way Yoga Unites Mind and Body

An in-depth study of the history of yoga, its benefits and the physical results it can impart has shown anecdotally that yoga practices can lead to your being able to perform near-superhuman feats, CNN Health reports. The good news is that positive body effects aside, yoga has also shown to improve your state of mind.

Regular yoga practice can help address and alleviate mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, ADHD and schizophrenia, as well as to combat cognitive decline. I still believe most benefit from high-intensity interval training (HIIT) for optimal health, but there's no doubt that yoga’s mental, emotional and even spiritual benefits can be very helpful for those struggling with stress-related health problems.

Other benefits of yoga include improved immune function, prevention and treatment of osteoporosis, improved sleep and weight loss. I also believe that it’s important to incorporate your yoga moves with a variety of other exercises that give you a comprehensive fitness program — even better is that yoga is safe even for those with weakened bones.

While the best way to get the nutrients your body needs is through your diet, if you’re looking to supplement, three important nutrients for bone strength are vitamin D3, which helps your body absorb calcium; vitamin K2, which works with vitamin D3 to direct calcium to your skeleton; and magnesium, which is important for the proper function of calcium. Also be sure to consume good sources of calcium in your diet, such as raw milk and cheese from pasture-raised cows, leafy green vegetables, sesame seeds and the pith of citrus fruits.
