Are Vitamin D Supplements the Secret to Weight Loss?

By |January 27th, 2017|

Hey Gorgeous,
Many scientific reviews continue to praise vitamin D as a miracle cure.
And it’s a reasonable conclusion to draw, given that most of our tissue (including in our brain) holds vitamin D receptors. 
The sunny little vitamin could be responsible for regulating as many as 2,000 genes, too. Just 24 hours of exposure to it […]

Raisins (and other dried fruits) seem like such a healthy snack for kids. Sweet, tasty, and natural…
…but are they really a good choice to give our children?
After all, dried fruit is higher in calories/serving than fresh, and that might lead to weight gain.
For adults, the effects seem neutral. Adding a […]
