Like all body fat tests, body fat scales don't actually measure your body fat percentage. They determine your body density. The examiner (or the scales) then uses a formula to calculate body fat percentage based on body density. These formulas just predict your body fat. Unfortunately there is no one formula that accurately predicts body fat for the whole population. Differences in age, gender, ethnicity, body size, and fitness level all have a significant affect on the results. Well, whether body fat scales measure your "true" body fat percentage or not doesn't matter! As long as they can accurately monitor changes in your body composition over time, that's all you need.

Acid reflux


yes, but for only 6 months at a time. Issues could be bigger than just reflux, (GERD, hiatal hernia, etc). Works by limiting protein in stomach. Issues, can be, with long term use, low levels or calcium, vitamin D, magnesium.
Dont take more than needed, can make issue worse if you take too much. This due to, you stomach needing juices to digest food, block too much of it and your body will go into over drive, and make some more. Not like a antacid, take before meals.
has worked great for me, but I have a hiatal hernia.
if you still have issues, get checkout.
good luck

Can you catch up on sleep on the weekend by taking a sleeping tablet and just sleeping a lot more than you do during the week?


No - if you sleep a lot more on the weekend, it's a sign that you have a sleep debt and your body is trying to get more sleep than usual. But it doesn't help your body to feel less tired. You need to spread out your sleeping over the whole week and not try and cram it all into one night.

I have trouble sleeping. Why is sleep so important for us?


Sleep is one of the fundamental parts of a healthy lifestyle, just like eating and exercising. We need a basic amount of sleep to function but lack of sleep can affect many things from relationships to quality of life. So if you are having trouble sleeping, it's really worth speaking to someone about it.

What is the vitamins of the brain


Here are descriptions of the main types of vitamins that can affect memory and brain power:
  1. B Vitamins. Research shows that B vitamins improve memory by creating a protective shield for the neurons in the brain. B vitamins break down homocysteine, which is an amino acid that is a toxic poison to nerve cells. These vitamins also aid in the production of red blood cells, which carry oxygen, an important brain nutrient.The most important B vitamins for memory include B6, B12, and Folic Acid (B9). You can increase the B vitamins in your diet by taking vitamin supplements and by consuming healthy, natural foods such as spinach and other dark, leafy greens; broccoli, asparagus, strawberries, melons, black beans, leeks, and other legumes, citrus fruits such as oranges and grapefruit, and soybeans.
  2. Antioxidants. Vitamins C, E, and beta carotene are antioxidants and are also important vitamins for memory. Antioxidants protect brain tissue by breaking down free radicals, which are toxic forms of the oxygen molecule natually found in the bloodstream. Antioxidant vitamins and memory are linked because the damage free radicals do can impare the functioning of the neurons in your brain. Like the B vitamins, in other words, the antioxidant vitamins prevent damage to the basic brain structures.
    Supplementing with antioxidant vitamins daily is recommended. In addition, these vitamins can be found in naturally occurring foods such as blueberries, strawberries, and other berries; sweet potatoes; red tomatoes, spinach, broccoli, green tea and other types of tea, nuts and seeds, and citrus fruits such as oranges and grapefruits.
    Note that with some of these foods, you get both the B vitamins and the antioxidants - a double dose of vitamins for memory improvement!
  3. Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are not really "vitamins" as such, but important fat molecules that enhance memory and brain function. So much is said about so-called bad fats, but the Omega-3 fatty acids are actually a class of good fats. These fats help protect the brain against inflammation and high cholesterol. That's what makes these fatty acids good vitamins for memory improvement.
