B Complex Vitamins

Should vitamins and minerals be served up on your plate or shaken out of a bottle? Currently, most experts believe that a combination of both - that is, a varied, healthy diet backed up by a daily multivitamin is the recommendation.

Undoubtedly, it's important to start with a healthy diet. A profusion of in-depth studies have consistently shown that whole grains, legumes, fish, fruits, vegetables, and vegetable oils have the potential to protect your body against cancer and heart disease. Some essential nutrients are packed into every food group, and certain foods such as flour, and cereal, are fortified with specific nutrients. It is also true that even the best supplements cannot encompass all the biologically active compounds abundant in a well-stocked pantry.

Another advantage of a healthy diet through natural foods is that it's difficult to overdose on vitamins and minerals. When people take several vitamin and mineral supplements, it's easier to ingest potentially harmful amounts of some nutrients.

Propolis for Longevity

Throughout history Bee Propolis has been known to be one of nature’s most unique & exciting substances.

Propolis comes from resins collected from trees and plants by bees. The resin collected is then combined with wax to make bee propolis.

The bees use the sticky propolis to fill crevices and to seal and varnish honeycombs to create a sterile environment, free from microbes and other invaders. It is said that a bee hive is one of the most sanitary and sterile environments on earth.
Propolis consists of a combination of resinous substances with a pleasant aroma. Propolis is processed by worker bees after collection of organic products from at least 20 species of trees that produce resinous secretions, including the buds of alder, ash, beech, birch, chestnut, pine, and poplar trees – and also the young stems, branches, petiole (leafstalks), leaves and bark of the willow and plum tree. The worker bees then add secretions from their salivary gland (containing enzymes), wax and other biochemical compounds. Colour, aroma, and also chemical composition of bee propolis will vary depending on the foliage from where the raw materials were collected.

Spice Up Relations

Evidence points to the many health benefits of an active sex life. When a couple has a desire discrepancy for sex, it can create a great deal of stress, and for some who don't ask for help in dealing with the problem, it can even result in a breakdown of the relationship. One partner may reach breaking point, start looking elsewhere, or begin pressuring their partner for a change. Ultimatums escalate distress levels and make it even more likely that the pair will split.

Trying to create a sexy relationship once it has gone stagnant takes a gradual shift and both partners need to feel comfortable each step of the way. We might not find ourselves alone with our partner as often as we would like. Exhaustion, stress, hormonal fluctuations and less than optimal health can all leave you feeling less than your sexiest, which can adversely affect your sex life. Perhaps you find yourself saying “not tonight babe” more often than you’d like.

Since a healthy sex life is stress diminishing and a great way to connect with your partner, sex itself, is not something that you want to forfeit. The yogis would say not to overdo it, but finding a good balance is the key. If you’ve been turning your partner down a little more in the bedroom that you’d like, perhaps it’s time for some natural spices to Spice Up your Sex Life!
