The Health Benefits of Vitamin A

The Health Benefits of Vitamin A

  • Maintains Healthy Eyesight – Vitamin A, as you probably already know, is a key nutrient in maintaining healthy eyesight. Also called retinol, vitamin A aids eyes in adjusting to different lighting and additionally keeps them moist.

Broccoli, Why You Should’ve Eaten It as A Kid… It’s Never Too Late To Start


If you’ve got parents (or had an elementary school principal) like mine then you were probably told to eat your broccoli. I, having liked broccoli, had no problem eating the green, miniature tree looking vegetable. However, many other kids, most of my friends included, couldn’t stand the stuff and despised broccoli with all of the body, mind, and soul.

We were kids back then and who could blame us for not wanting to eat vegetables? The most important thing is we recognize their importance now. Many vegetable are good for us, but broccoli is one of those vegetables that are exceptionally good. Why? Well there are many reasons.

Broccoli is one of the top vegetables you should eat. It is rich in vitamins, high in fibre, yet it is low in fat and calories. Broccoli contains plenty of Vitamin A and Vitamin C, with one serving of broccoli supplying you with about 200% of your require daily dose of Vitamin C. Additionally, the levels of calcium contained in broccoli is apparently able to rival that of milk!

If you thought that all of that was great listen to this. Recent studies suggest that eating broccoli can help prevent certain types of cancer, and also broccoli may be able to help ward off herpes by interfering with the reproduction of the herpes cells. If you don’t think that is pretty amazing then I don’t know what is.

Remember eat your vegetables, and if you’ve got kids you tell them to eat theirs too. If they refuse, force them. Well, maybe asking politely will do the trick, physically forcing them my result in custody battles and a social worker coming to observe your family… not exactly a go

How to Get Gorgeous Hair

Filed under: Biotin,hair,healthy hair,Uncategorized,vitamin A,vitamin E — robertprice @ 11:15 am

You are in your living room flipping through a fashion magazine when you realize that all of the models in it have absolutely amazing hair. No fair!!! Even though it’s a magazine which could have easily been photo shopped, and the models have professionals do their updos before the shoot, you still wish that their hair could be yours. Yes – it’s happened to the best of us women, and even though you may feel hopeless in ever having such radiant locks, there are several tips that will help you on your way to achieving the impossible.

1. Vitamins

Make sure that your body is getting the proper nourishment it needs. What you put into your body affects every part of it – Including your tresses. Vitamin A and E are the best for maintaining a healthy head of hair. Try taking prenatal and hair vitamins like Biotin for best results.

2. Don’t go nuts with the hair appliances!!

Even though most of us know that curling irons and flat irons are bad for our hair, we still continue to use them! It’s understandable if you want to create the perfect hairstyle, but please try to keep the hot appliance use to a minimum because it causes dryness and breakage with excessive use. Before using appliances, lather a heat protecting cream throughout the hair before using a blow dryer or flat iron.

3. Try washing your hair less

Washing your hair everyday strips it of its natural oils and makes the scalp go into oil production over-drive. This will prevent it from looking and feeling soft and healthy. If you have slightly damaged hair, try using a good quality shampoo or conditioner that is designed to treat dry or damaged hair.

4. Hair Spa

Once a month, put some time into giving your hair a “spa treatment”. Start by asking someone to massage a deep hair conditioner into your scalp. This will stimulate the hair follicles and ensure that what grows out of them is moist and strong.

5. Regular Trims

Believe it or not, the best way to keep your hair healthy is to trim it every 4 to 6 weeks. Split and dry ends will actually slow down hair growth, and have an effect on the overall appearance of your locks.
