Your Healthy Tidbits; Volume 11 Issue 52



Break the monotony: “When each day is the same as the next, it’s because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises.” Gratitude is the practice of finding the good in each day. Life can easily become stagnant and monotonous, but that changes depending on what we choose to see. There’s always a silver lining, if you look for it. Paulo Coelho paulocoelhoblog.com


If you know someone who suffers from anxiety or develops occasional panic attacks, they may be experiencing the side effects of an underlying nutrient deficiency that is easily correctable. A small case study in Japan (21 people) identified a lack of both vitamin B6 and iron among participants who experienced panic/hyperventilation attacks. The researchers noted that the control group with no anxiety symptoms were found to have normal vitamin B and iron levels. B vitamins and iron are particularly important for the synthesis of tryptophan into serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates not only mood and mental stability, but also sleep and cardiovascular function. It’s important to note that all B vitamins are important for healthy brain and bodily function. A deficiency in any B vitamins can lead to mental health problems, which is why it is important to keep your levels in check. If you are looking to supplement with B vitamins, be sure to purchase only whole food-based varieties. Whole food-based supplements of any kind are better absorbed by the body than their synthetic counterparts. realfarmacy.com
