Carrot Juice is Great For Your Brain and Your Body!

So what if my two front teeth are a little buck.. that doesn’t mean I like carrots.  Well actually I don’t mind carrots, and I recently found that I don’t mind Carrot Juice either.

This is the brand I get to the right.  0009131_bolthouse-farms-carrot-juiceI’m going to keep carrot juice in my fridge from now on and I’ll tell you why.  I started noticing how I felt in my brain!  I had a lot more mental energy later in the day when I start to fade out.  Not only that, but I was in a better mood, and my speech had improved.  Now before you start thinking that I talk like Rocky or something, I mean that I have to give orders and motivate and speak the whole time I’m training.  I notice that when I’m mentally tired, It’s harder to give energy to my clients with my words.  It’s harder to find the right words when your tired sometimes right?

I noticed such a difference after drinking the juice that I had to look into the matter.  I bought carrot juice in the first place because it is super duper high in Vitamin A!  Vitamin A is known to be great for your skin, teeth, and eyes and I’m noticing improvement in my face.  If you google Vitamin A you will mostly see articles and research on how Vitamin A is good for those things I just mentioned, but nothing about the brain!  Why am I feeling so sharp in the brain?  I decided to do a little research and see if Vitamin A is also good for the brain.  Check this article out, Vitamin A is great for the brain after all!

There has just been a new discovery linking Vitamin A and brain boosting powers!  Now, research is showing that Vitamin A can help improve memory, learning, build strong synapses, clearer thinking and speech, and much more.  Your body can have plenty of energy, but if your brain is tired or not functioning up to par, you will feel lethargic and your life is greatly effected negatively.

Remember, this all came about because I noticed a huge difference in how I was feeling.  I get my daily need of Vitamin A on a regular basis, but in Carrot Juice there is 700% of the daily need, and that is why it is called supplementation.  Getting more than enough can have plenty of brain boosting benefits that will lead to a much better day, and an enjoyable life!  I highly recommend looking into it further and giving carrot juice a try!  Our bodies can do nothing if the brain is foggy or unhealthy!  Healthy brain, healthy body!  Remember where you heard it, and subscribe for when new articles are posted!

What to do after over eating.

facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinby feather

It was just Thanksgiving yesterday and as usual I over ate.  I can’t overeating2help it!  I allow myself to taste everything you know!  Anyway, I hate the way I feel when my pants are about to pop open.  I am a huge advocate on limiting your portion sizes, and then here I am, pigging out with the Russians.   Yes I had a little vodka, just a little.  I am more of a beer guy, but it’s a very bad idea to mix alcohol and over eating!  I am against these things with a passion, but there are times where it is simply unnavoitable.   Do not make a habit of this, but if it happens once in a while, here is what to do after over eating.

  1. Start drinking lots of water.  You can also drink lots of good detox teas, and believe it or not a little coffee too (Just 1 cup today to help you go 😉 ).  Just make water the main liquid of choice because you are going to need to clean your body out well!
  2. When you wake up, go for as long as you can without eating anything.  Chances are you have plenty of food left in your intestines.  You do not need to add more on top of that.  Burn what you have already for energy.  Wait until 1 pm if you can.
  3. In the meantime keep drinking water, tea, coffee and stay active!
  4. Try taking a table spoon or two  of Apple Cider Vinegar to help digestion and also detox of the liver and kidneys.  Our bodies need all the help they can get. The more natural tricks you know the better!  Warm water and lemon juice is also a good aid to the digestive system.  And don’t forget about Pro Biotics and how great they are for both the immune system and digestion!
  5. The first foods you introduce to your system should be fruits and veggies.  This will give you a great source of natural fiber, vitamins, and also help aid in detoxing the body as well.
  6. Not to be too graphic, but it is a good idea not to eat until you have already gone to the bathroom at least once.  I’m not going into detail here, but doesn’t it make sense that if you stuffed yourself and still haven’t gotten rid of anything yet, maybe your bodies not ready for more?  Just a thought.
  7. Don’t give up on yourself Charlie!  So you over ate and got a little drunk, back to the plan and off we go.  Back to being discipline and back to getting results.  You know if you work hard, you have to balance it out by playing hard once in a while!  🙂
