I live in Columbus, Oh. I'm 55 years young. I'm a Sunday Scool secretary, I'm a Usher, I volunteer in our food pantry, I am co-director for our security team and I am the Bible Bowl coach for our PAW Kids this gets me more into the word of God and it help the children to learn his word. I love to read a good book and listen to gospel music. I have a beautiful daughter and wonderful son in law and a 8 and 11 year old grand daughters that keep me young and focused.
I'm very involved in church activities, spend a lot of time with family
Here’s a little tidbit you may or may not know about Prebiotics:
It’s actually considered a ‘slimming supplement’! According to the latest Canadian research – overweight adults who took a prebiotic supplement lost an average of 2 pounds over 12 weeks, compared with those on a placebo.
The recommended intake is to try to get 4 to 20 grams a day of foods such as garlic, onions, artichokes and fortified yogurt or supplements.
The health bonus is that prebiotics stimulate the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut to regulate digestion.
I hope you have a really great rest of the week and a super weekend!
The year is being swallowed up by time at a rapid rate and I’m caught in the vortex of its ever swirling center. Ever feel that way?
I read something interesting in the latest issue of one of the health publications I receive that I thought note worthy to share:
If you take an herbal supplement, be sure to let your health care provider know.
I’m all about natural supplements, but I’m careful about which ones I take and the reputation of the company that makes them. Labels can be misleading. Half of the herbal products sold online erroneously and illegally claim to prevent, treat, diagnose or cure specific diseases.
Moreover; it is estimated that up to 70% of patients don’t report their herbal supplement use to their doctors. This is a mistake because some herbs can present serious health risks; for example, some herbs can thin the blood or interact with medications.
