Our bodies thrive on short-term acute “stress” exposure by ramping up growth and repair. This process, known as hormesis, may have powerful health and longevity benefits.*What is Hormesis?In the fields of biology and medicine, hormesis is defined as an adaptive response of cells and organisms to a moderate (usually intermittent) stress. Low levels of controlled stress stimulate or upregulate existing cellular and molecular pathways, improving the adaptive capacity of cells and organisms to withstand greater stress.Let’s …

Heart rate variability is an evaluator of how your body is recovering from stress and of overall fitness. Heart rate variability is also a metric of our well-being. The Elite HRV team explores with us the link between HRV and stress resilienceWhat Exactly is Heart Rate Variability?Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is an accurate, non-invasive measure of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) — which responds to everything: how you exercise, recover, eat, sleep and perceive stress.We like to call HRV “the glue marker”. It’s a powerful biomarker that binds together subjective and objective data for more effective decision making. When measured alone, without any …
