The Hot New Addiction

Did you know that nearly 90% of Americans consume some sort of caffeine every day, which makes it more addicting than any drug out there?

And just like other addictions you can go through caffeine withdrawal when you stop, but you never hear anyone in a rehab center for caffeine have you? 

Don't worry, caffeine isn't as bad as hard core illicit drugs, however it does cause jittery episodes for some. Even some people experience heart palpitations (a noticably abnormal heartbeat), and the dreaded "Caffeine Crash" after a few hours. 
"But I love my caffeine and I need it," you might say.  Many feel that way because they are running on fumes and need that energy between 12pm and 3pm everyday. So what do you do?  Go straight for the high amounts of caffeine found in coffee, pop, and popular sugary energy drinks.  Now that's going for the gusto! 

But wouldn't you like to nix the caffeine crash that's eminent after a few hours? 

Of course you would!  Why treat your body like a car with an almost dead battery everyday?  You realize that's all you're your body a "jump" 'til the battery dies again.


I get it! I get it!  Stop yelling!

Try this.....................................GUARANA!

It's a natural form a caffeine that is absorbed slowly and progressively (6-8 hours) so you get a feeling of well-being and awakening, instead of the "jump" without the "Caffeine Crash". 

And this Brazilian plant has been used by Amazon Indians for stress, fatigue, stimulating physical activity and the brain, an appetite suppressant, an anti-diarrheal, an analgesic for pain and for influenza. 

You can find Guarana in MetaboMax Plus and Solstic Energy

I am Stressed Out!

Like millions of Americans out here, I'm sure you get stressed time and time again just like I do.  And I'm sure you know that stress can wear and tear on your body.  It can negatively affect control of your weight, decrease your immune system,  may cause hair loss, fatigue, digestive issues, and more.  But here are some things you can try to combat stress in your life:

Take a P.M.H. Day (Personal Mental Health)
Just recently I took a Personal Mental Health Day after a long stressful weekend.  It was well needed too. 
1.  I slept in to catch up on sleep I missed over the weekend.
2.  I ate a hearty and healthy breakfast--eggs with cheese and onion and soy sausage wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla.  Mmmmm :)
3.  Laughed!  That's very important to combat stress.
4.  Drank water (1/2 my body weight and that number in ounces to be exact).
5.  Did nothing (didn't run errands or do lots of work-related tasks).
6.  Took my vitamins.

My P.M.H. Day was a bit overdue.  I try to take an P.M.H. Day every once in a while.  It's good to do this, especially when you're stressed.  It's better to take a P.M.H. Day on a regular basis, not just when you're stressed.  You may not have time, or feel like planning a day off, but if it's already planned you may benefit more.  You need to recharge your batteries to reduce stress on a regular basis.

Now if you're not sure what vitamins to take specifically for stress, I would suggest you try Nutri-Calm to support the nervous system or Stress-J for occasional stress relief and aids proper digestion.
