Vitamin B12: The Shot In The Arm You Just May Need To Boost Your Energy.

B-12_InjectionWhat exactly is vitamin B12 and why do we need it?

Vitamin B12 is a nutrient that is found in our food and we need it to keep our nerve cells healthy and to keep our red blood cells at optimum efficiency. It is also extremely important for proper digestion; in fact, our stomach acids grab the B12 from food and mix it with IF, which is then easily absorbed by the intestinal tract.

If you have a vitamin B12 deficiency, you are likely to feel tired, lightheaded, and weak. You're gums may bleed and you will probably experience digestion problems such as diarrhea. You may feel tingling in your hands or feet, get out of breath easily, hear a ringing sound in your ears, have chest tightness, and develop neurological symptoms such as forgetfulness, a lack of ability to focus, and becoming easily confused.

How to Burn Off Post-Holiday Weight Gain

HolidayOne of the difficulties with post-holiday weight gain is that it happens to come about in the middle of winter.

This is not an inspiring time to get out and move.

The weather is often cold and wet, and the mornings and evenings are dark. It's tempting just to hibernate and wait until spring to get in shape.

The trouble is that excess weight may get harder to lose the longer it's on, and you might get used to it. So take advantage of the timing - it may be the middle of winter, but it's a new year, and that's a good time for a healthy weight loss program. Here are some tips for burning off that holiday weight.

Body Focus System Weight Loss Success

I'm a 40 something year old guy that over the last 10 years has slowly but surely gained weight. I have never been the type of guy to diet, but after having to go for sleep apnea testing, starting medication to control my high blood pressure, and being 40 pounds overweight, found it was time to do something.

I went to a Body Focus System seminar to hear what they had to say and I was surprised. The Detox is what really got my attention. I had always wanted to try a detox, but did not like the thought of having only liquids or having to drink some crazy mixture that tasted like who knows what.

I decided to sign up and give this "diet" a try. I cannot tell you how happy I am that I did! Let me first tell you about the detox. I started with the fruit detox in August and from the first day there was more to eat than I ever expected. I always assumed a diet would be about eating food you don't like and trying to forget about how hungry you are. With the detox, there were days that I was eating a snack before I was even hungry. I lost over 7 pounds during the detox eating fruits that I like and not feeling hungry at all.
