Did you know you should be drinking at least eight, 8 ounce glasses of water a day to keep your body’s wonderful engine running smoothly? And, if you want to lose weight, for every 10 pounds of weight you are over your ideal weight you should ADD another 8 ounce glass to the 64 ounce total you should already be drinking? How many of you are thinking right now the only water you even consume is in flavored beverages like soda, coffee, and the like?
B12? Why we need the right amount…
Vitamin B12 is an essential water-soluble vitamin that is commonly found in a variety of foods such as fish, shellfish, meat, and dairy products. Vitamin B12 is frequently used in combination with other B vitamins in a vitamin B complex formulation. It helps maintain healthy nerve cells and red blood cells and is also needed to make DNA, the genetic material in all cells. A day’s supply of vitamin B12 can be obtained by eating 1 chicken breast plus 1 hard-boiled egg plus 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt, or 1 cup milk plus 1 cup raisin bran. As women we sometimes need boosters of B12 especially during periods of high stress like giving birth, nursing mothers, illness, severe dieting/weight loss and sleep deprivation. At VIXEN, after careful review, you may be a candidate for B12 injections.
