What to give this season?

Every holiday season, you search for the "perfect" gift for everyone on your list. It becomes more and more difficult each year. Perhaps that is because you don't know exactly what the special people on your list need all year long. You can give the gift of health this season and it will enrich the lives of the people that you give it to.

Custom vitamins are designed specifically for the person taking them. It is a personalized gift that will continue to give the recipient well being. Obviously, you cannot complete the questionnaire that indicates which vitamins and minerals are lacking for your recipient, but you can let them know that they can visit Health Advantage and complete the questionnaire. Then you can purchase one or more months of custom vitamins for them.

Once they begin to feel the energy boost and overall well being, they will want to continue taking their custom vitamins. It is a gift that will increase the quality of life of the recipient. Consider visiting Health Advantage and completing a questionnaire for yourself too. It is a wonderful way to celebrate not only the holidays, but a healthy life!

Thank you for visiting our blog and we wish you the happiest of holidays.

Battling seasonal depression

It's the time of year for Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which is also called the "Winter Blues." Research indicates that many people suffer bouts of depression in autumn and winter seasons because less sunlight is available. You can get your daily dose of vitamin A from sunlight, so it stands to reason that your vitamin A is depleted in autumn and winter. Autumn is a perfect time for you to complete the Custom Vitamin Shop questionaire.

Once you complete the questionaire, you will discover how a custom vitamin designed specifically for your "symptoms" is made exclusively for you. Every vitamin and mineral that your body is lacking will be supplemented in your daily vitamin. You will feel energized and ready to face those short days when your body is running like it should.

You don't have to suffer during the shorter days. Research indicates that if you turn on your lights and let them shine brightly, you can help decrease the effect of autumn and winter on your moods. Of course if your symptoms linger, you should discuss them with your family physician.

During the winter months, there is less fresh produce available and that affects your diet, which in turn can affect your bodies ability to absorb nutrition from overly processed foods. You can bolster your diet with custom vitamins and feel better year round. If you are ready to treat your body like a temple, then visit
The Custom Vitamin Shop.

Feeding your muscles

Your body needs minerals as much as it needs vitamins to work at its optimum. Potassium is an essential mineral that helps your body function correctly in many ways. For example, when your muscles contract, potassium is at work helping keep your muscles in good shape and ready for the work.

Electrolytes and fluids are important for your body because you are more water than anything else. When your infant or child is ill, your doctor recommends that you provide lots of fluids and replace electrolytes with drinks like Pedialyte. This is also important for adults because your cells are told by electrolytes to release energy from protein, carbs and fats by the balance created when you have a sufficient amount of potassium in your body.

Your dermatologist might suggest an increase in potassium if you have excessively dry skin because dry skin as well as feeling over-tired and muscle fatigue are signs of potassium deficiency.

Inadequate amounts of potassium in your body are suspected to cause exacerbate arthritis, particularly rheumatoid arthritis. Exactly what can you do to increase your body's potassium? A good diet rich in fruits and vegetables is a good start. Dried apricots and bananas are the best fruit sources of potassium. The best vegetables that provide potassium are artichokes and asparagus. But what if you don't like these fruits and vegetables? The answer can be found at The Custom Vitamin Shop.

Health Advantage is the place to find custom vitamins. That's right! You can take your over the counter one vitamin fits all vitamins daily, but what if your body is lacking in specific vitamin and mineral compounds? That is where the professionals at The Custom Vitamin Shop come in. Upon completion of an extensive questionnaire, a vitamin and mineral combination exclusively for your body's needs is developed.

Once you begin your custom vitamin regimen, you will notice that your fatigue fades and you feel better overall. The Custom Vitamin Shop is waiting to help you feel your best and you will as soon as you complete the questionnaire and have your custom vitamins shipped to you. Make today the day that your health becomes the most important concern in your life. When you feel your best, you will give your family, friends and job your best.
