Vitamin B-12

Vitamin B-12 (folic acid)  is needed for the body as it is part of the important B-vitamins. It is responsible for the synthesis of our DNA & RNA & the functions of the brain. Yet, some people do not get the enough B-vitamins in their diet. Meat, poultry, krill, eggs, fish all have a decent amount of B-vitamins. It has much less in vegetables which is why vegetarians lack vitamin B-12. It helps in breaking fats & carbohydrates which in turn help people with their weight loss goals. Also, it helps in repairing cells, & boosting the immune system making it less susceptible for you to get sick. More energy is always a plus in my book as well! Approximately 10% of the population is deficient in B-vitamins. Are you in the 10 percent that is deficient? Have a good day!


What is Garlic? Benefits of Garlic

A clove of garlic a day can surprisingly help you lose weight. Having garlic as part of a diet is beneficial to your overall health. They help us in more than just keeping vampires away. Anyways, a regular diet consisting of garlic aids the heart & might also prevent cancer. The nutrients inside cloves of garlic can thin the blood, making you less susceptible to heart attacks & stroke. They are high in antioxidants, which in return prevent many types of cancer cells from spreading. Garlic can help absorb iron & zinc more efficiently, two minerals that are necessary in our diets. Also, they help your joints! That means osteoarthritis is less likely to show for garlic eaters. They may taste kind of awful if eaten raw at first but they can also be cooked. There is water for you to help it consume it down. Have a good day!

The Benefits Of the Best Multivitamins

Multivitamins have many benefits that we do not receive on a daily basis. It is said that Americans usually do not eat enough fruits & vegetables to cover the whole body with the vitamins & minerals needed. That is coming from the FDA themselves. They can be found at your nearest vitamin shop if you feel like they will be beneficial for you. I have personally used various types of vitamins & they have always made me feel better than I have before I took them. It is usually recommended to get all vitamins in one capsule as the b-vitamin complex works more efficiently. Too much of a good thing is not what were going for either, as it can cause muscle weakness & stomach bleeding. Now for the benefits! It can be something very beneficial in a dieters journey to weight loss. More energy is felt through out the day. There is far less chance of getting sick since the immune system is strengthened with the vitamins. The benefits definitely out weight the negatives so why not start taking them? Just drink with water. Have a good day!

Sweet Deal With Cinnamon

Studies have shown that cinnamon can help weight loss goals with a scoop every day. That's a sweet deal if you ask me. Cinnamon is rich in fiber, calcium, magnesium, & iron. It may also help avoid the spread of cancer cells! It can lower the cravings for sweet foods. It has an effect on insulin levels on the body. Cinnamon delays the time that food passes through the intestines to the stomach, making you feel fuller through out the day. It can also help pass on carbohydrates more efficiently. Cinnamon has more an effect on the abdominal fat more than any other part of the body. So add it to your coffee, your tea, or sprinkle it on top of anything you eat but keep it minimal. There are also cinnamon capsules available for easy consumption. Have a good day!

Benefits of The Bench Press

I have discussed the benefits of doing push-ups but I haven't talked about the bench press. What better to build up the chest by combining both. This is one of the best ways to work out the chest. I suggest you start doing push-ups at first to get comfortable. You can't possible hurt yourself to bad doing push-ups. Well, not that I know of. Anyways, the bench press is easy to do. There's many variations of exercises with the bench press. The joy of maxing out your previous number is awesome compared to the strain you'll receive from doing bench presses. It will make you come back for more & more after the accomplishment. It helps to build the chest, shoulders, & triceps. But if you do too many without rest the next day, your muscles won't grow. So give it time before you go build those pecs!

What is Flaxseed?

What is Flaxseed? Flaxseed is made up of lignans, fiber, & omega-3 fatty acids. Flaxseed has other ingredients that are helpful for the body as well. They make up a small percent of the Flaxseed oil but they are beneficial. The fiber in the Flaxseed oil can decrease blood pressure & keep digestive system running smoother, leading to weight loss. Omega-3 fatty acids benefit the heart & they are not produced by the body. Therefore, they are an important part of our diet. Studies have shown that omega-3 has restrained tumors. It also helps the cardiovascular system of the body. If you are a woman, lignans can help reduce the risk of developing breast cancer. So all in all, here's the best things about Flaxseed:

-Radiant skin
-Smoother digestive system
-Reduces acne
-Lowers blood pressure

I take Flaxseed oil instead of omega-3 right now but the point is, are you keeping them in your diet? Have a good day.

Benefits Of Coconut

Coconut is useful on the skin & has been used for the treatment of eczema, dry skin, psoriasis, & dermatitis. It's surprisingly used for weight loss. It is tasty & sweet to eat as well. Coconuts are rich in fiber, vitamins & minerals. The health benefits of coconut oil are incredible. They can kill bacteria, viruses, fungi & yeast in the body. They can also improve the digestive system because of the lauric acid contained in them. Coconuts have been proven to have other remarkable physiological effects, including as an anti-histamine, anti-septic, immune system booster and anti-cancer agent. People with diets high in coconuts have a lower rate of heart disease & cancer. The metabolism boost from consuming coconut oil in place of more conventional cooking oils can last for up to 24 hours, so calories can burn at a higher rate throughout that period. It is for this reason, that more and more weight loss success stories are emerging from people using coconut oil as a key part of their weight loss programs. Enjoy :)
Coconuts are filled with benefits!

Fish Oil (Omega 3)

What are fish oil pills? Fish oil pills benefits can help improve your health. I'll discuss the benefits of taking omega 3 supplements on a daily basis and what they can do for your health.
The best known benefit of the fish oil pill is the effects on the heart. It can reduce the amounts of saturated & trans-fat in your diet. It is also the best supplement that can prevent heart disorders. Taking supplements with lots of omega-3 fatty acids daily have been found to prevent ventricular fibrillation, which is the most common cause of sudden death in heart attack victims. DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids in particular can significantly help lower triglyceride levels and LDL (bad cholesterol) levels while increasing the amount of HDL (good cholesterol) in the blood. If you have high blood pressure, fish oil pills can relieve it as well. Most people's diets consist of more omega-6 than omega-3 fatty acids, which increase the amount of inflammation in the body. Most people suffer from inflammation, even if they don't know about it. It's inflammation that leads to most heart disorders and other ailments. Fish oil pills rich in omega-3 fatty acids will help stabilize and reduce inflammation in your body. Do you have arthritis aches and pains? If so, start taking omega-3 fish oil pills daily so it can help reduce tenderness in joints and decrease morning stiffness. But the heart isn't the only thing that benefits from fish oil pills. They also improve cognitive brain performance, memory, and focus as well. Since the brain consists of 60% fat, the more of that you can replenish, the better it works. In fact, half of all the fats in the brain is DHA omega-3. If you suffer from any kind of brain disorder or condition- like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, ADD, or ADHD- then you can reduce their effects by taking fish oil pills. There are many studies you can find about fish oil pills that you have no reason not to try them.

Exercise, No Excuses

Hey guys, back at it here. I decided to tweak the name of the blog a bit if you haven't noticed! Thanks for the comments left back over the weekend. I read all of them & got back to you =). Anyways, if you celebrated easter then you probably also ate much food to go along with it. If you have a gym pass, it makes it easier to burn those calories off. From my experience it was easier to stay focused on one thing- working out till I couldn't anymore. You can get extra motivation working out along a friend or someone new at the gym. Some of us can't go for the gym routine because of time restrictions. Meaning, we are busy most of the day. But if you want something real bad, you gotta work at it. For the people that can't go to the gym there are easy exercises found online that can get you toned with enough work. The jumping jack is something that can be done watching tv. There is no need to rely on the gym. Burpees are another one you can try at home. You just got to have the same driving factor that working out at the gym brings. It's easier to just wander off after doing a couple of push-ups if your home. There's so many things to distract us nowadays. But it all depends on how much you want something done for yourself. I believe that if you dream that you can achieve, it can be done. If you can't focus on much then I suggest you take omega 3 fish oil or flaxseed oil =) Drink water after your all done!

Exercise can be done at home

The Deal With Porn

I want to discuss a topic that most people are ashamed to talk about. I know that sex isn't related to weight loss but bare with me here. I believe that sex is great if it's controlled to a minimum. Meaning, your not "choking-the-chicken" every opportunity your mom is not looking. Breaking the cycle of watching internet pornography could be very beneficial to your social life. Would you rather be experiencing it yourself or having someone to share that awesome moment? Masturbation is healthy but like I said, moderation is the key. Too much porn can rewire the brain! It's a vicious cycle. Especially if your already depressed. I would "beat the meat" because it made me feel good for a minute or two. After, it only made me more depressed because I wasn't really getting with anyone & I definitely wasn't interacting with people. But now, I have broke that cycle. I see more positive things come into my mind & I feel less pressure talking to people. It's hard at first but start working out with a diet. It can raise your self-esteem even if it's little, it will be a huge boost from where you can be now. Try it, I encourage you. Give it a month & TRY to keep your mind of anything related to sex. Let yourself find other things that bring pleasure. Then, life will seem more enjoyable.

Porn ruins real relationships with people

Juicy Water

I noticed yesterday that ever since I started drinking water, I have stopped munching on sweets. It can be feeding your depression even more. Take note guys, people eat snacks when bored. It can also be when they are feeling a bit sad, or just because the food is "right there" & "I don't want to let it go to waste". Sugar seriously clutters your body's ability to support itself! To keep it short & sweet- diabetes & body fat gain. I personally know that it's VERY difficult to stop eating sugars all at once since it has been compared to quitting highly addictive drugs! Incredible! I STRUGGLED the first day without sweets. The cravings are so serious that you'll probably start making ANY excuse to eat unless you have some sort of self-control (think meditation). Luckily, water can help you get used to healthier things in the long run. Check out my other posts for helpful tips!

You want some. I could tell.

Tuesday, April 3, 2012's True

I wanted to share a little story about how women DO check out guys behinds. I wanted to see if it's true or not since someone said they would never do that! I started the experiment without it really in mind. I was walking by a nail shop (beautiful women)  & outside there was a gorgeous asian. She was crouching down talking on her cellphone. I've heard asian women stay loyal compared to other women of different races. I am guessing that came from a survey. Anyways, walked by her & I decided to look back after 2 secs. What do you know? She was staring at my butt like it was a god. She was stretching out her hand as if she was grabbing my butt! She got embarrassed after that quick smirk I gave her. Anyways, get to walking! It really works & tones your body! Do it now! Bonus: Here's a similar story from fellow blogger mynameisearl..E- Exercise true story

Vitamin B-6 is Great

B-complex vitamins, especially B-6 must be present for your body's normal, depression-fighting chemical reactions to occur. B-6 deficiency is very common in Americans, and that "deficiency" is measured against an already ridiculously low US RDA of only two milligrams.Therapeutic doses between 100 and 500 milligrams daily are commonly prescribed by physicians for PMS relief.
 A daily total of a few hundred milligrams of individual B-6, especially if taken in addition to the entire B-complex to ensure balance, is very safe indeed. Those with lower blood levels of vitamin B6 had higher risks of lung cancer, no matter what their smoking status. Doctors say healthy levels of B vitamins help make and maintain healthy DNA – an important factor in the prevention of cancer. Vitamin B6 is in a variety of foods including meats, poultry, fish, grains, beans and some fruits and vegetables – such as avocados, broccoli and bananas. Such a great mood lifter!
