Red Bull, Rockstar and Monster energy drinks…

Let’s look at today what is taking place with advertising.

Red Bull, Rockstar and Monster energy drinks…

The Big Retail push to sell you these drinks comes with false promises AND health risks.

A recent study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association found that caffeinated energy drinks alter the heart’s electrical activity and raised blood pressure.

The World Health Organization says they may pose danger to public health.

For instance, they promise to give you the energy you need to get through the day by providing super megadoses of B vitamins.

Unfortunately, it’s just not true.
The quick pick-me-up in the beverages typically comes from their fake caffeine content and high levels of sugar. It’s true that B vitamins are essential to your body’s energy metabolism. And vitamin B12 in particular is crucial for energy.

When you take in high-quality B12, you unlock the energy contained in the foods you eat and turn it into glucose you can burn. But fortified junk food is no way to get your vitamins. In a minute, I’m going to show you a better way…

But let’s take a look at how important vitamin B12 really is — especially as you age.

First, your body’s ability to absorb vitamin B diminishes as you get older. So, you may need vitamin B supplements, even shots, if you are deficient.

A straightforward blood test can determine your vitamin B levels.

And as you age, your digestive tract no longer produces a protein called gastric “intrinsic factor.” This protein binds to vitamin B12 so that your body can absorb it.

If you are deficient in vitamin B12, you may experience:

  1. Memory loss, impaired thinking and general cognitive difficulties.
  2. Fatigue and weakness.
  3. Trouble walking and balance problems.
  4. Numbness or tingling in your hands, legs or feet.
  5. Vision problems
  6. When you don’t get enough B12, your body can’t get energy out of your food.
  7. It also can’t form healthy red blood cells. And the result is low energy, weakness and fatigue.

My love is for you to learn the truth.

Even though we produce skincare, our diet has a direct impact on our overall health.

I do hope you find this information of value.  I look forward to hearing your feedback in the comment section below.
