Fun Fact Friday!

From November through February, people that live north of the 37th latitude experience a “Vitamin D Winter,” meaning the sun’s rays are unable to stimulate Vitamin D production in the skin. This means that even if you get a sunburn on the ski slopes, you do not make any vitamin D and may become deficient. Researchers believe that the lack of Vitamin D production during this time of year contributes greatly to the timing of cold and flu season. In the United States, the 37th latitude is a line that runs from around San Fransisco, along the borders of Arizona/Utah, New Mexico/Colorado, Oklahoma/Kansas, Arkansas/Missouri, Tennessee/Kentucky, and North Carolina/Virginia. People living north of this line should be supplementing Vitamin D during the winter months

At the end of the day, do you feel like you are in a mental fog, or are you having trouble staying alert or concentrating?

A quick visit to any coffee shop or convenience store gives you a pretty good idea that people are looking for a boost of energy. Many people look to energy drinks or super-charged caffeinated beverages, but these are often not the best choice. These products frequently contain potentially dangerous levels of caffeine and are loaded with sugar or artificial sweeteners.

Energy support is an excellent choice for those who find it difficult to get through the day without experiencing fatigue. It is safe, non-habit forming, and will not cause the jitters or crashes common to many energy drinks and supplements. Within minutes you will begin to feel renewed energy and vigor to help you complete your day.

Lack of energy and concentration can result in:

*loss of productivity at work
*increased chance of making mistakes
*automobile accidents
*irritability
*depression
*decreased performance at work or school
*premature aging as a result of stress and fatigue
*lack of motivation to complete daily chores or physical activity
*loss of interest in hobbies

Is your mood being negatively affected by the stresses of every day life?

With so many sources of stress in our lives, it’s no surprise that stress-related health problems are on the rise. More than 77% of us frequently experience stress symptoms, while about half of us have had a major stress event within the past year, according to the American Psychological Association (APA).

One of the first things noticed during stressful times can be a change in mood. This can include a variety of symptoms such as feelings of anxiety, altered sleep, frustration, and depression. When we feel these symptoms, many of us try to push through the stress hoping it will pass quickly. However, both short-term and prolonged stress have negative effects on your mind and body that frequently cause a decline in overall health. To make matters worse, those bad health effects can contribute even more to your stress and overall worsened mood.

The most commonly reported major stress events according to the APA include:
*Illness and disease
*Death of a loved one
*Problems with work
*Life changes or transitions
*Family events or issues
*Problems with personal relationships

According to the APA, you are most likely to be suffering from increased stress if you are:
*In poor health
*Disabled
*Dealing with chronic illness
*Earning less than $20,000 per year
*Experiencing dangerous work situations
*A single parent
*Parents of a teenager
