SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Author and women's health advocate Neely Mack has released her new book, Project You: A Lifestyle Guide to True Health and Longevity, a comprehensive roadmap to living a long and disease-free life. Praised by Olympic Gold Medalist Julia Mancuso as "a guidebook for optimal physical and mental health," Project You outlines a program for achieving true health, inside and out, through the 3 "pillars of wellness"-- gut health, mindfulness and exercise.
Project You includes soup and smoothie recipes made with Australian "bush" foods that Mack is introducing for the first time to the U.S. market, including the touted, anti-oxidant rich Kakadu plum, which Is being studied for its anti-cancer and anti-Alzheimers's properties.1 With its rich composition of phytochemicals and microelements that assist in cellular repair, the Kakadu plum is also a powerful weapon against premature aging.
In Project You, you will discover:
- The amazing connection between "gut" health and your physical and mental well-being. Who would guess that some of the mainstay foods in the American diet-- milk, bread, eggs-- could be wreaking havoc on your gastrointestinal tract and leading to inflammation and disease?
- Powerful new superfoods from the Australian bush including Kakadu plum, Riberry and Ahiflower oil.
- Delicious new recipes for superfood smoothies and soups that are rich in antioxidants that help repair cellular stress, improve cognitive function, boost immunity, and reduce inflammation.
- The secrets to inner peace and emotional balance, and meditation practices to help you get there.
- Exercise regimes of top athletes that will keep you physically and mentally fit, not drained and depleted.
