It's now well established that heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and cancer are associated with poor dietary choices and excess body fat. The statistics for these killer diseases don't seem to be improving. In the United States of America, the home of fast food franchises, over 8% of the population have diabetes. The complications of this disease are deeply worrisome – heart disease, high blood pressure, blindness, kidney disease, neuropathy and amputation.
It's more than wise to lower the risk factors and be proactive in safeguarding your present and future health. The occasional visit to the doctor doesn't necessarily mean you are going to receive a full checkup, so it's a great idea to be able to monitor your family's health on a regular basis.
Simple body scales give you one figure to work with and that is your total weight. It's an important statistic but only gives you a partial view of your total health. The simple weight measurement does not differentiate between lean body tissue like muscle and bone from excess body fat.
Tanita Body Fat Monitors on the other hand are able to tell you what your total body weight is and also a number of other important measurements such as body fat percentage and metabolic age. We won't define all the measurements right now but clicking on this link will let you know all the various Tanita Body Fat Monitor Features.
Tanita Body Fat Monitor/Scales use the BIA (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis) technique. In this method, a safe, low-level electrical signal is passed through the body. It is difficult for the signal to flow through fat in the human body, but easy to flow through moisture in the muscle and other body tissues. The difficulty with which the signal flows through a substance is called impedance. So the more resistance, or impedance the signal encounters, the higher the body fat reading.
Tanita Body Fat Monitors let you know your important measurements so you you can measure the effects of your exercise and diet program. Imagine if you were exercising and watching your diet and you were putting on weight. With a simple scale you'd be disappointed in your efforts but with a Tanita you might find that your muscle mass was increasing and your body fat was reducing. It's a much clearer picture and let's you know that you are on the right track.
It's time to retire the old bathroom scales and invest in a Tanita Body Fat Monitor.

In a fast-paced, hectic lifestyle, it is easy to get worn out and exhausted. Often, when life gets too busy, the first things to suffer are healthy lifestyle habits. Eating poorly or irregularly often leads to lowered energy levels.
Berocca Performance contains a specific combination of B group Vitamins known as Vitamin B complex and Vitamin C that help the body to release the maximum energy from the food that you are already eating. While no substitute for a healthy diet, Berocca may be of assistance during those times when diet is compromised.
Vitamin B complex helps your body release the energy from food, supporting vitality and stamina. It supports your nervous system and is also important for healthy muscle function.
Vitamin C is essential for supporting your immune system. A powerful antioxidant, which helps to prevent premature aging, Vitamin C also assists your body in absorbing iron. Lack of iron in the body, especially in women, is a common reason for low energy.

About 20% of women will feel the distress and discomfort of a bladder infection at least once a year. Until recently, most bladder infections were treated with antibiotics. Antibiotics work by wiping out all the bacteria in the body, including beneficial kind known as probiotic bacteria which works to assist our health and immunity. Often people taking antibiotics develop other problems from using the antibioitcs, such as upset stomachs or yeast infections. Effectively this is replacing one problem with another.
There is a harmless alternative though - a naturally occurring sugar called D-Mannose. D-Mannose removes the bacteria which is causing the problem but leaves the helpful bacteria alone.
By keeping the beneficial bacteria alive, the body is kept in a healthy, natural balance. There are no stomach upsets, there are no yeast infections.
In over 90% of bladder & kidney infections, E. coli (Escherichia coli) bacteria is the cause. E. coli are usually found in the intestinal tract - where they are perfectly harmless and actually help the digestive process. But once they move into the urinary tract then they can cause problems.
E. coli have small sticky finger like projections that atttach to the cells lining the urethra, bladder and kidneys. These projections are called lectins and they help the E. coli to work their way deeper and deeper into the urinary tract.
D-Mannose works by binding itself to the lectins on the E. coli. The E. coli can no longer cling to the cells and are simply flushed away into the urine. No bacteria are killed in this process. The E. coli are simply and quickly removed from where they don’t belong.
D-Mannose works quickly and effectively. Because the body does not absorb much of the D-Mannose it is quickly passed into the urine, where it can start working. Often an improvement can be felt after the first dose.
If the problem has not substantially improved in 24hours, please consult your doctor. While over 90% of all bladder and kidney infections are caused by E. coli there are a small percentage which result from other micro-organisms and may require an alternative treatment.
D-Mannose occurs in some fruits such as cranberries and pineapples. The D-Mannose in Clinicians Bladder Support Powder is 100% pure and natural and is derived from the bark of a tree in a process that leaves no chemical residues in the powder.
Many men also suffer bladder infections although it is not as common or frequent as women.
Symptoms of cystitis can differ between person to person but usually the most recognisable symptom is burning or stinging when passing urine. Feeling the need to urinate more frequently and passing only small amounts of urine at a time are also common symptoms.
Bladder Support is 100% pure D-Mannose. It is completely safe for children, men and women, even for long term treatment. Bladder Support D-Mannose does not raise blood sugar levels at all so it is safe for diabetics to use as well.

Ever had complaints that your snoring is keeping someone else awake? Do feel tired during the day even though you’ve had a full nights sleep? Have you ever woken in the night gasping for air?
More than 40% of adults suffer from sleep disordered breathing (SDB). This includes obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. Snoring is not only frustrating but also is potentially dangerous. Obstructive Sleep Apnea has been linked to an increased risk of strokes, increased blood pressure, cardiovascular disorders, reflux, obesity, impotence, depression, diabetes and memory problems.
Often people who suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea will wake in the night, gasping for air, as the airway has been completely blocked off. Poor sleep and waking during the night leads to being extremely tired during the day, for both you and your partner.
Snoring is caused by the narrowing of the airways. As you sleep the air moving through your relaxed throat causes a vibration. This is the snoring sound which your partner has been complaining about!
There are a number of causes of the airways narrowing. These include large tonsils, a long or soft palate, or excessive flabby tissue in the throat. Allergic nasal congestion or nasal cartilage deformitiies can also contribute to the airways narrowing.
But the most common cause of narrowed or restricted airways during sleep is the tongue. The tongue will relax too much and slip back into the throat, restricting the airflow and creating the perfect snoring conditions.
The AveoTSD anti-snoring device works by gently holding the tongue forward so that it cannot fall down the back of the throat. The AveoTSD was developed after several years of clinical research into treatment of snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
The AveoTSD anti-snoring device works by holding the tongue forward with gentle suction. This prevents the tongue from falling against the back of the throat and blocking the airway.
The AveoTSD anti-snoring device does not attach to the teeth so it doesn’t require a special fitting for you. It is non-adjustable and will fit most people. This simple, cost effective device is clinically proven and could start working for you from the first night you wear it.
