I started taking it and noticed that my brown spots on my arms starting fading! It also helps with vein integrity as the veins on my legs don't throb and swell while I'm taking this. That's really good new for me!
Mistake #1: You avoid all animal protein
Vitamin B12, which is essential for energy, is found only in foods that are derived from animals. This nutrient helps regulate your metabolism, and it is an important part of maintaining a healthy brain and nervous system. Fatigue is a classic sign of B12 deficiency
Mistake #2: You're not getting enough manganese and copper
Manganese and copper prevent joint pain, and are both essential for maintaining joint cartilage and flexibility. In many cases, getting enough of these nutrients reverses joint deterioration and eliminates joint pain.
Mistake #3: You avoid healthy fats
Omega-3 fats are part of your brain's building blocks. If you're not getting enough in your diet, the architecture of your brain becomes weak, and brain function, including memory, deteriorates.
Mistake #4: You favor packaged foods over whole
Most processed foods do not have enough potassium, which can result in high blood pressure. Eating better can correct the problem.Enjoy your summer and all the superfoods God created to help you age gracefully! :0
I just came across this article on supplements. I've been taking supplements for a long time - for about eight years or so. Well, maybe that's not too long but longer than a lot of people. Taking supplements is important but also equally as important is the brand of supplements that you take.
The first time I took Shaklee supplements, which was a strip of vitamins/minerals, I felt a HUGE difference! I had two preschoolers and my hands full with homeschooling among other things. I was drained and running out of energy and the daily strip of supplements really helped me get through each day with more energy. Well, that is, along with prayer and faith in the Lord. He always gives me peace and strength that I could not manage on my own.
If you're looking for quality supplements, try Shaklee - it's the #1 natural nutrition company in the US. Products are always safe and always work. Here's my website: www.healtyfoundation.myshaklee.com

Here's the article on supplements:
Do you take a vitamin or herbal supplement? If not, chances are someone next to you does.
Data just out from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that more than half of Americans take some sort of supplement. To be precise, it's something about 53 percent of Americans do, according to a survey conducted between 2003 and 2006. The proportion is up from 40 percent during a previous study period from 1988 to 1994.
More women than men take supplements. And women 60 and over take the most of all. The most commonly consumed supplement is a multivitamin, which include at least three different substances, in case you were wondering.
One of the biggest changes over the years is older women's increased use of calcium and vitamin D supplements. Antacids containing calcium or tablets rich in calcium are often recommended to help strengthen bones. Same goes for vitamin D.
In the late '80s and early '90s the proportion of women 60 and older taking calcium supplements was about 28 percent. The latest data show it has climbed to 61 percent. But there's quite a bit of variation by racial and ethnic group.
A similar increase occurred with vitamin D. In the most recent period, about 56 percent of women 60 and older took some form of vitamin D compared with 30 percent in the period from 1998-1994.
