B12.. The importance of this vitamin

Vitamin B12 is such an important vitamin that we all need daily to keep our bodies optimally healthy. Are you getting enough? there are so many signs and symptoms of a deficiency. I have had so much energy since adding B12 to my supplements daily. It is one of the most important vitamins  your body needs for many reasons. Having loads of energy daily is hard for some, and the culprit may be a lack of B12. Everything in your body needs B12 for survival in the right kind, and over all well being.

B12 has so much to do with how healthy your cell production is. It helps support a healthy thyroid , and helps keep diseases at bay. The older we get, there is so much importance on staying as healthy as possible. There are over 40% of people that are deficient in B12. Here are some signs of a deficiency.

  • Tired, anxious, and weak. If you are feeling these sorts of signs, its time to visit your doctor.
  • Are you a vegetarian? This could be a reason that you are lacking in B12.
  • Are you a avid drinker? Drinking lots of alcohol irritates the stomach lining , and reduces B12 absorption. Reduce your alcohol intake.
  • Are you on a long term birth control? High estrogen levels can trigger B12 deficiency.

There are many great ways of getting sufficient amounts of this vitamin. You can take an oral supplement, or you can start juicing , using many greens and fresh vegetables. These will get your levels up. I feel that a liquid vitamin is the best for absorption. It gets into the blood quicker, and you can feel the results quicker than taking a pill form. Celery and dark chocolate are two healthy options high in B12. Just adding these two every day to your diet will make you feel so different. dark-brown-milk-candy-1

Quinoa .. The Supergrain..super healthy

I’m sure you all have heard the word Quinoa,  in the land of health. Any more, you see it in health magazines, books, podcasts, and so forth, that’s because of the amazing health benefits this super grain has. Quinoa is similar to buckwheat, but is not a member of the true grass family. This super grain resembles amaranth. Quinoa originated in the region of Peru, and this grain is full of amazing nutrients such as Potassium, Iron, Zinc, Folate, and Magnesium, which we all know are amazing vitamins we need to keep our bodies strong and healthy.

There are so many ways to incorporate Quinoa into your daily diet. I love adding to fresh grilled vegetables, or adding to my fish . One cup of Quinoa contains a whopping 5 grams of fiber, and 8 grams of protein. Its very low in calories, at only having 22 calories and 4 grams of fat in one cup. Just adding one cup to your dinner with vegetables, gives you a sufficient amount of vitamins. Quinoa is loaded up with iron, which many people are deficient in. Low iron can bring on fatigue, and you may not even know you have low iron. The sufficient amount of iron can help you maintain healthy blood cells.

Quinoa is full of magnesium, which relaxes blood vessels, helps prevent diabetes, and helps with keeping bones healthy and thriving. It is filled with antioxidants , which helps your body with aging well, and helps you live longer. Because Quinoa is so low in calories, it helps keep the weight off, and can prevent you from gaining weight if it is eaten properly. This should be added to your diet to give you more antioxidants. If you are one that likes to eat pasta and grains, try to replace your white flour pasta, which probably isn’t that healthy for you, with some quinoa. It doesn’t take a lot for you to gain the rewards from this. If you are unsure on how to make it, or what to pair it with, check out pinterest, for some amazing recipes. You can also check out some of my recipes, as I have incorporated Quinoa into some of them.


Sugar Bear your hair

Hi ladies! 

We all know how important it is to keep your hair healthy as you age. We see our hair getting drab , and losing elasticity as well as shine, and this can happen with age as well as being in the sun too much, or using hair products that are full of chemicals that wreak havoc on your hair. 

Of course eating a healthy diet helps with keeping our hair healthy, and taking a good multi vitamin helps with it also.  A great vitamin that I love is the multi vitamin by Sugar bear hair. These chewy vitamins are filled with all the great vitamins that are essential for hair health such as biotin, folic acid, and vitamin D. They have a great fruit taste, and they are vegetarian, and cruelty free. 

Just popping two of these vitamins daily will make such a difference in your locks. It’s amazing the taste of these also, and the price point is wonderful at 29.99 for a 30 day supply , compared to others . The difference in your hairs elasticity is the first thing that I noticed, and also the growth. Adding a multi vitamin daily along with eating healthy food will really help keep your locks luster. Shampooing less is also essential. Shampooing everyday is not good for your hair as the chemicals strip the moisture, so shampoo with a good one, and in between use a dry shampoo to add volume. You will see a big difference. Happy locks !  



Rev up your energy with B vitamins 

We all know how important B vitamins are to our health. Whether you take them in pill form, liquid form , or get them mainly from your daily diet is important. B vitamins are usually found in unprocessed whole grains, which include legumes, leafy greens, chili peppers, ect.

B vitamins are water soluble , so therefore need to consumed regularly because of the constant excretion of the vitamin. More and more people are deficient in certain vitamins, and many could benefit from a B vitamin  or in take of more vitamin B rich foods. Those people who are dealing with different types of stress , or those who are trying to shed weight , and may be trying to restrict calories, need to add a vitamin B addition to their diet to prevent fatigue and low energy.

 Vitamin B is also important for cellular energy. This is the vitamin that plays a major role in your energy, and how you feel on a daily basis. It , along with vitamin B6 , is needed to keep your red blood cell production up to par, and not to mention healthy nails and hair. If you are pregnant , or planning on pregnancy, this is another reason getting enough vitamin B is important. To keep mood swings, high stress, and fatigue at bay, it’s very important to get enough of this vitamin daily. If you are one that doesn’t like to take supplements, try adding vitamin B enriched foods to your diet, and pick out ingredients that is high in this vitamin. You will be doing your health a world of good, not to mention feeling better , with better energy daily.
