Minerals

We tend to think that when we desire something in particular, it’s simply a craving but actually it’s our body telling us its in need of a certain mineral. Depending on what your cravings are, depending on what your body is missing. Here’s a list with the top ten desires we tend to crave and symptoms to look after; both physically and mentally. If you’re in need of any of these minerals, look them up in your Health-store and start taking supplement for it, trust me, it is life changing! My biggest craving had always been carbohydrates and chips/salty snacks , I could devouver a family size bag during a day or even during a two hour movie, thinking that I desperately needed it, because my cravings turned me into the Hulk 2.0, after doing some research and reading, turns out that my craving wasn’t chips, it was my body telling me that it was lacking of Sodium salts of orthophosphoric. I bought the supplement and ever since have I felt better than ever. I don’t have massive cravings, I’m not angry or have any aggression towards anyone for no reason and I’m mentally more calm and just in a better place all-together.

I’m a total supplement obsessed freak and buy a new one probably once a week, if not twice a week. I can spend hour after hour inside a health supplement store reading each and single one of them and what they’re good for. One important one we all need is Vitamin B-12, so here are the benefits;

Vitamin B12 plays an important role in cell growth and development, the development of blood and for the function of the nervous system. Lack of Vitamin B-12 can cause anemia and damage to the nervous system and mental illnesses such as mania, psychosis and memory-loss. And since Vitamin B12 is obtained mainly from animal products such as meat, fish, poultry, dairy products etc, it is crucial as a vegan/vegetarian to take Vitamin B-12 supplement, ones that are vegan/vegetarian friendly.

B12 AKA Cobalamin, is a necessary part of our diet for the whole body’s health, but its benefits are particularly common when it comes to brain power. Using a B12 supplements have proven to increase energy and overall alertness. From a purely cognitive point of view, this addition can improve memory and fluid intelligence, and increase attention span and concentration. Many users have also reported more restful sleep, less stress, and anxiety, and even improved mood as well.
If you feel tired, low on energy or even mentally stressed or sense hints of depression, chances are that you’re running low on Vitamin B, and also Iron.

And, an American study has shown that white tea also is effective against infections, bacteria, and viruses.
