Vitamin D deficiency may have hazardous consequences.
A lack of Vitamin D increasingly has been associated with :
Chronic muscle pain
Heart Disease
Multiple Sclerosis
Muscle weakness, Lethargy and Lack of Energy
Rickets causes muscles and bones to become soft, which can cause permanent deformities.

Vitamin D deficiency is common in Athlete’s, gymnasts, football players and sport players.

Vitamin D is one of many hormones involved in the maturation of white blood cells, our first line against most types of infection. In particular, researchers have uncovered a relatively consistent link between low vitamin D level and increased risk of respiratory infection.
Viral diseases
Bronchitis (Respiratory syncytial virus)
Common Cold

Vitamin D supplements available on the market, is available in two forms, vitamin D2 and vitamin D3.
Vitamin D is much more than a vitamin; technically it’s a hormone. Vitamin D is manufactured through exposure to direct sunlight.
Natural Sunlight is the best source of vitamin D.

Spending time in sunlight is one of the most effective ways of raising your D3 levels. It’s important to wear sunscreen to protect against skin cancer,.
If you sit in the sun for a few minutes each day, your body will make vitamin D, but as you know that can be tough here in the United Kingdom.
Plus it isn’t possible to get the daily requirement in this way due to factors including the strength of the sunlight here on any given day,
Researchers now believe that because people get less sunlight, and therefore less Vitamin D, in the wintertime, that is why colds, flu, and other infections happen more frequently in the winter. Flu pretty much disappears in summer.

“”””In natural health circles, prevention is ALWAYS better than cure.”””””

Good Sources of Vitamin D can be found in Cereals, Cow’s milk, Cheese, Egg, Mushrooms, Orange juice, Salmon and Tuna High in Vitamin D

A typical healthy grownup between the ages of 19 and 50 ought to receive about 2,000 IU’s of vitamin D each and every day.
Howevere Salmon contains more than the Daily Value in just a single serving.

Calm Nerves, Fight Insomnia, Reduce Anxiety and Heal Depression with Passion Flower


Anxiety and Depression are two of the most common mental health concerns in our society.
Passiflora more commonly known as Passion Flower Nutritional Herbology has historically been used as a sedative known for its calming and relaxing properties.
It is used primarily on the nervous system, particularly for anxiety, depression, panic and worry.
Passion Flower soothes the nervous system enabling the users to have sound sleep.
Passion Flower has been used as a sedative to aid in the treatment of insomnia. Dried Passion Flower can also be used in herb pillows or sprinkled in a bath to help reduce depression, anxiety and stress. The stems are even eaten raw by adding it to salads.
Passion Flower is commonly sold as a tea in a dried form, it can be made as a tasty tea for truly holistic healing or strong decoction, some people have even been known to smoke it.
Additionally you can get Passion Flower in capsules or tablets.
Passion Flower exerts its calming effect by increasing the release of a particular neurotransmitter in the brain. Basically, some of the active phytochemicals in Passion Flower promote the release of GABA.
GABA or Gamma Aminobutyric Acid is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system.
This neurotransmitter lowers neuronal activity in certain brain cells.
When there is excessive brain activity, its presence produces calmness. Considered vital for calming stress responses.
This action has a quieting effect in the central nervous system and it reduces anxiety and relieves insomnia.
Popularly referred to as the body’s natural tranquiliser, frequently identified as the calming neurotransmitter).
Normally, the brain pumps out all the GABA we need. Unfortunately, due to a poor diet, exposure to environmental toxins, or other factors, levels of GABA may become depleted. Too little of this important compound may result in anxiety, irritability, and insomnia. A deficiency of GABA has also been linked to depression.
Do you have acute anxiety or panic attacks, or difficulty sleeping through the night or even the inability to experience pleasure in activities that normally produce it? If so, you may very well be suffering GABA deficiency symptoms.
Low levels of GABA can directly affect a person’s capability in handling stresses that are brought about on a day to day basis. So generally, deficient GABA levels can negatively affect a person’s life and performance.
GABA is manufactured in the body from another amino acid, glutamic acid.
GABA essentially acts as a tranquilizer in the body, and its effects are comparable to prescription drugs such as Valium and other tranquilizers.
Because GABA helps to subdue the firing of nerve cells in the brain, it may be useful for treatment of disorders thought to be linked to over stimulation of the brain’s motor centers, such as epilepsy and attention deficit disorder.
Outside the central nervous system, GABA is also responsible for regulating muscle tone. Therefore, increased secretion of GABA can also help relax the muscles. This calming effect on the muscles is the reason why passion flower is used in the treatment of seizures and epilepsy.
In homeopathic medicine Passion Flower was used to treat epilepsy.
GABA itself does not cause drowsiness. Instead, by easing anxiety, it simply makes it easier to fall asleep. Some research indicates that the popular insomnia-fighting herb, valerian, boosts GABA levels too. When specifically treating sleep disorders, some people like to rotate GABA with Valerian or Melatonin, the popular Hormone-based sleep supplement.

In a study participates with a sleep disorder ingested a mug of Passion Flower Tea for 1 week and noted their results. The conclusion was that it helped their sleeping.

You should consult with a qualified healthcare provider before making decisions about using herbal therapies for health conditions.

The process of metabolism has been the centre of all discussions relating to weight loss. This particular topic of fish oil and weight loss is no different. For many years now fish oil is being considered as a great way to keep a check on the fat content in the body. Fish oil has Docosahexaenoic acid, known as DHA. What DHA does is pretty interesting; this chemical can actually help the body burn more fat. In other words DHA provides the necessary incentive to the process of metabolism thereby making it use more calories to burn fat in the body. This results in quick weight loss and also helps in fighting lethargy or physical inactivity. The process of metabolism is carried forward by certain enzymes; fish oil for weight loss also helps in activating these enzymes.
The highest concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids are found in cold water fish, such as sardines, salmon, herring, tuna, cod, mackerel, halibut, and shark. These fatty acids are also found in lower concentrations in plant foods such as Flaxseed, Walnuts, Great Northern beans, kidney beans, Navy beans, and Soybeans. Some registered dietitians recommend eating a diet rich in fish with high levels of omega-3 fatty acids or eating 1 or 2 teaspoons of flaxseed every day.
So, no more excuses! You can make easy switches to your diet today to help you eat healthier and lose weight.

Burn a minimum of 1,000 calories in aerobic exercise per week. This is equivalent to walking about ten miles over one week. You can spread it out into four 2.5 mile walks per week or any other combination you prefer. You can walk at any speed you like, but brisk walking is better.

Be Patient
It’s common to lose 2-6 pounds (1-3 kg) within the first week on a strict low carb diet, and then on average about one pound (0.5 kg) per week as long as you have a lot of weight remaining to lose. This translates into about 50 pounds (25 kilos) per year.
Every 5 pounds of fat loss roughly equals 1 inch lost around the waist (1 kilo = 1 cm).

Using such a fish weight loss plan may not suit every one, and it is necessary to keep your self hydrated while using this fish diet plan.

High protein diets do promote weight loss but caution is advised. Consult your dietitian or healthcare provider.
