Your breath, skin and body temperature may be telling you that your body is running low on water. Dehydration occurs when the body has a low level of water for properly function.
Dehydration occurs when the body has insufficient water to function properly. While mild dehydration may be just uncomfortable, more severe dehydration can lead to blood clots, seizures, and other potentially fatal complications. Clearly, severe dehydration must be treated promptly, but even mild dehydration can have adverse effects on mood and energy. It’s important to catch any degree of dehydration early, but the aren’t always obvious ones like thirst and fatigue.
Sign #1 Bad Breath Maybe some may not know this but salive has antibacterial properties, but due to dehydration, this can prevent your body from making saliva. If your body isn’t producing enough saliva, bacteria overgrowth will occur in your mouth, and one of the side effects of that is bad breath.
Sign #2 Dry, Flaking and Cracking Skin Most of people think that people who get dehydrated are really sweaty, but the fact is, as you go through various stages of dehydration, your skin will get super dry! And your skin may appear flushed as well. If you want to check, a dehydrated skin when pinched will remain tented, and will take some time to return to its normal, flat appearance.
Sign #3 Muscle Cramps Dehydration is only one potential cause of muscle cramps, but it’s one worth considering if you get cramps while exercising, particularly in a hot climate like in Malaysia. As your body temperature increases, so will your risk of a muscle cramps, and that is from a pure heat effect on the muscles. As your muscle works harder, they can fail to function from the heat itself. Changes in the electrolytes, such as sodium and potassium may lead to muscle cramping as well.
Don’t be surprised but even in cooler weather, dehydration is possible if you don’t drink enough fluids while working out. The symptoms may be milder or come on slower, but dehydration carries the same risks, regardless of the outside temperature.
Sign #4 Fever and Chills In severe case of dehydration, you may also experience fever and chills. Fever, in turn, can worsen dehydration, and the higher the fever, the more dehydrated you will become.
Sign #5 Food Cravings, Especially for Sweets When you are dehydrated, it can be difficult for your organs to function – especially organ like the liver, which uses water to release glycogen and other components of energy stores, so you can actually get cravings for food.
While you can crave anything from the chocolates and candy to salty snacks, craving for sweets are more common because your body may be experiencing difficulty breaking down glycogen to release glucose into the bloodstream to use as fuel.
Its also not uncommon for the body to confuse the feeling of thirst with hunger, meaning that you may feel hungry when all you really need is water.
Sign #6 Headaches Mild dehydration can cause a dehydration headache and even trigger a migraine headache. Since it’s often not clear what is causing a headache, drinking a full glass of water and continuing to sip more fluids during the day is an easy way to ease your pain if, in fact, dehydration is contributing to it.
Tell-tale Signs of Dehydration An easy way to tell that you are dehydrated is you feel thirsty. But the downside is, if you are already feeling thirsty, it means you are already dehydrated. But lack of thirst doesn’t necessarily mean you’re well hydrated. Here are two other ways to check whether your body is dehydrated.
Try the skin test. Use two fingers to pinch up some skin on the back of your hand, then let the skin go. The skin should spring back to its normal position in less than a couple of seconds. If the skin returns to normal more slowly, you might be dehydrated.
Check your urine. If you’re well-hydrated, your urine will be mostly clear with a tinge a yellow (the colour of light lemonade before it hits the bowl). Darker yellow or orange are the warning colours to watch for. If you see those colours, start drinking fluids.
Tips for Staying Hydrated When it comes to daily water intake, it is recommended that most women get about 2.7 liters of water a day – which is about 12 cups, and most men get about 3.7 laters a day, which is about 15 cups. Those totals include water gained from food and beverages like tea, milk, and fruit juice.
Here are some times for getting all the fluids you need and avoiding dehydration:
Keep your water bottle handy. If it is right next to you, you’ll likely get into the habit of sipping it without even realising it.
Spice up plain water. If you want to spice up your plain water, adding a splash of fruit juice or chunks of fresh frozen fruit, such as – lemonade, strawberry, cucumber, blueberries, and more!
Drink tea. Unsweetened teas are available in many flavours. Sipping on fruity iced teas during the day with lots of ice, or a hot peppermint or chamomile tea at night to keep cool during the night.
Shaklee Cinch Tea is a best bet for the cause too. Here’s a safe and natural way to head off the slumps when you need a quick pick-me-up in your looser-fitting pants. An exclusive blend of green, white and red teas, as well as taurine, naturally boosts your energy and enhances alertness. Enjoy morning or afternoon, hot or cold.
Swap your snacks. Swap your dry snacks like chips, pretzels, and crackers – which have zero to low water content – with refreshing munchies like fresh or frozen fruit, yogurt, healthy smoothies, celery with peanut butter or a handful of various cut veggies with hummus.
Pile on the produce. Aim to make half your plate with vegetables and fruits. All those veggies and fruits will supply water as well as a hearty dose of vitamins, minerals, and fibre.
Sip more during meals. Sipping water with meals will help you more slowly, pace your eating, which can help you lose weight. And plus, keeps you hydrated.
Additional support. Obtain support from supplements like the Shaklee Performance Drink. Quench that thirst for winning. Bring out your best performance and keep the momentum going. With proprietary OPTI-LYTE™ electrolyte blend plus unique mix of carbohydrates to deliver instant and sustained energy and support optimal hydration.

What is leucine? Leucine is one of the main ingredient in weight and muscle managing supplements. But do you know what it really is? ‘kay, let me tell you what leucine really is.
Leucine is one of the branched-chain amino acids; in other words BCAAs – sound familiar? Especially if you are a gym-rat, you’d know what BCAAs are. As 99.9% of our gym enthusiasts, or fitness junkies, you’d probably know that it is an important component in assisting muscular health. It was first discovered in its impure form in cheese back in 1819, and a year after that in its crystalline form from muscles and wool. The amino acid got its name from the Greek word, leukos which means “white”, since at that time the purification of the substance in question from natural to a white, crystalline state was considered to be noteworthy. Only in the end of the 19th century the structure of Leucine was established by laboratory synthesis and recognised as one of the three branched-chain amino acids.
Now, what are the uses, what are the main functions of Leucine? Well, Leucine is considered as a vital amino acid for the protein synthesis and various metabolic functions – in other words, it is an essential amino acid, which helps in regulating the blood-sugar levels, promotes the growth and recovery of muscle and bone tissues, as well as the production of the growth hormone. Leucine is also known for preventing the breakdown of muscle proteins caused by injury or stress. In addition, Leucine may be beneficial for people suffering from phenylketonuria – an inherited inability to metabolize phenylalanine, which, if left untreated will cause brain and nerve damage.
Leucine does not only benefit in muscle preservation, but also as a yielding substance that aids and enhances fat burning. Leucine turned out to be a great tool not just for muscle building, but for the weight loss as well. Those people who have taken different muscle builders and fat burners, and are apparently searching for something else to give them a finer edge, taking a Leucine supplement might be a good idea. Studies have revealed that this amino acid acts in a unique way: unlike other amino acids, it aids in burning fat without burning a muscle by sparing the muscle proteins and leaving them to assist in building and in increasing the muscle gain and mass. In other words, it is a great supplement for all those gym rats or dieters who have to workout regularly in attempt to build up muscles while keeping the fat off the body. Researches confirmed that people staying on the protein-rich diet, which includes enough of Leucine, lose more body fat while retaining a more lean muscle mass.
Do keep in mind that Leucine is an essential amino acid, so your body cannot product it naturally but only can be obtained from food and supplements. Food containing Leucine includes protein-rich animal like fish, chicken, beef, also dairy and eggs. But if you are a vegan but not cutting out dairy and eggs from your vegan diet, the Shaklee Cinch Shake is your best bet in getting the essential daily intake of Leucine into your diet. The shakes can be mixed with non-fat milk or low-fat soy milk.
If you really wanna lose those extra kilos and preserve the healthiness of your muscles, Shaklee Cinch Shake is your best friend! While helping you lose fats, it maintains your muscle mass and encourage muscle growth. Other than providing you with the energy you need, and keeping you full throughout the day, Cinch will also help you regulate your glucose level and most importantly, Cinch will help get your monstrous appetite under control!

The hair is a crown – one that should
be taken care of. Many people view healthy-looking hair as a sign of health or
beauty. Like any other part of your body, hair needs a variety of nutrients to
be healthy and grow. In fact, many nutritional deficiencies are linked to hair
loss. While factors such as age, genetics and hormones also affect hair growth,
optimal nutrient intake is key. Below are 5 vitamins and 3 other nutrients that
may be important for hair growth.
No.1 Vitamin A
All cells in the body requires vitamin
A for growth. Which includes hair, the fastest growing tissue in the human
body. Vitamin A also aids the skin glands in making sebum. Sebum moisturizes
the scalp and helps keep hair healthy. Vitamin A deficiency causes several problems,
including hair loss. While it’s important to get enough vitamin A, too much may
be dangerous. Studies show that an overdose of vitamin A can also contribute to
Vitamin A can be found in food such as
sweet potatoes, carrots, pumpkins, spinach and kale are all high in
beta-carotene, which is turned into vitamin A. Vitamin A can also be found in
animal products such as milk, eggs and yogurt. Cod liver oil is a particularly
No. 2 Vitamin B
One of the best known vitamins for
hair growth is a B-vitamin called biotin. Studies link biotin deficiency with
hair loss in humans. Although biotin is used as an alternative hair-loss treatment,
those who are deficient have the best results. However, deficiency is very rare
because it occurs naturally in a wide range of foods. There’s also a lack of
data about whether biotin is effective for hair growth in healthy individuals. Other
B-vitamins help create red blood cells, which carry oxygen and nutrients to the
scalp and hair follicles. These processes are important for hair growth.
You can get B-vitamins from many
foods, including whole grains, almonds, meat, fish, seafood and dark, leafy greens.
No. 3 Vitamin C
Free radical damage can block growth
and cause your hair to age. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps
protect against the oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
In addition, your body needs vitamin C
to create a protein known as collagen — an important part of hair structure. Vitamin
C also helps your body absorb iron, a mineral necessary for hair growth.
Vitamin C can be found in strawberries,
peppers, guavas and citrus fruits are all good sources of vitamin C.
No. 4 Vitamin D
Low levels of vitamin D are linked hair loss. Research also shows that
vitamin D may help create new follicles — the tiny pores in the scalp where new
hair can grow. Vitamin D is thought to play a role in hair production, but most
research focuses on vitamin D receptors. The actual role of vitamin D in hair
growth is unknown.
That said, most people don’t get enough vitamin D and it may still be a good idea to
increase your intake. Your body produces vitamin D through direct contact with
the sun’s rays. Good dietary sources of vitamin D include fatty fish, cod liver
oil, some mushrooms and fortified foods.
No. 5 Vitamin E
Similar to vitamin C, vitamin E is an
antioxidant that can prevent oxidative stress. In one study, people with hair
loss experienced a 34.5% increase in hair growth after supplementing with
vitamin E for 8 months.
Vitamin E can be consumed through sunflower
seeds, almonds, spinach and avocados are all good sources of vitamin E.
No. 6 Iron
Iron helps red blood cells carry
oxygen to your cells. This makes it an important mineral for many bodily
functions, including hair growth.
Iron deficiency, which causes anaemia,
is a major cause of hair loss. It’s especially common in women. Foods which contain
iron includes clams, oysters, eggs, red meat, spinach and lentils.
Zinc plays an important role in hair
tissue growth and repair. It also helps keep the oil glands around the
follicles working properly. Hair loss is a common symptom of zinc deficiency.
Studies show zinc supplements reduce
hair loss caused by zinc deficiency. However, there are some anecdotal reports
that supplementing with too high of a dose can also contribute to hair loss. For
this reason, it may be better to get your zinc from whole foods.
Foods high in zinc include oysters,
beef, spinach, wheat germ, pumpkin seeds and lentils.
Hair is mostly made of protein.
Consuming enough is crucial for hair growth.
Foods rich in protein is lean meat,
poultry, fish, eggs, dairy products, yoghurt, cheese, seeds and nuts, beans and
legumes, and an option of soy products such as tofu for vegan.
Shaklee Vita Lea Iron Formula contains
all the vitamins and nutrients needed for you to grow a strong and healthy
Other than Vita Lea, Collagen Powder Plus
is also great for an overall health especially for women.
So there you go! Get on in and have the most beautiful hair ever! Need more information on the Shaklee Vita Lea and Collagen Powder Plus, do contact Mommy J for a free consultation and best deals on other supplements.

as I was walking pass a clinic to get some breakfast from a kopitiam next to it
when I saw a mother holding her two children by the hand, leading them into the
clinic entrance glass door. The children looked flushed, and were sniffling –
so I thought, these children must be sick. I peered into the glass door, and I
saw a 2-3 children in the clinic, assuming that they are sick as well. I made a
conclusion, probably it’s the heat and the unpredictable weather.
weather is really something you can’t avoid. You can’t tell the sun to stop
radiating and you can’t rearrange the clouds to shade the Earth from the
scorching heat, right? Here’s what you need to do to keep you and your family
cool and healthy during this crazy hot weather in Malaysia! Here are the top 5
ways to keep you and your family healthy!
No. 1 – always
keep you and your family hydrated. Drink plenty of water throughout the day,
and not only when you feel thirsty. Because your body lose water through
excessive sweating, you’d end up dehydrated and parched like a dried prune.
Occasionally, you can have a glass of cool peppermint tea. This is a great way
to make your insides feel cool and tingly, thanks to the menthol and a
substance in the plant that works the opposite way capsaicin does, instead
tricking your body into feeling cold. Plus, you can spray mint tea onto your
skin to provide both evaporative and mentholated cooling, so this beverage pulls
another way to keep yourself hydrated and avoid overheating in this terrible
heat is to add water-rich food like some of these seasonal produce –
watermelon, cantaloupe, and cucumbers. These produce contains loads water,
furthermore, they’re easy to digest and don’t need to be cooked, and taste
better than water, am I right? LOL. But don’t skimp on water! Drink water and
eat these mouthwatering water-rich fruits to keep your body hydrated and
healthy. Other than peppermint tea, coconut water is used for its
cooling properties. In addition to that, it’s also a great source of the
electrolytes you lose through sweating, making it a relatively low-calorie,
low-sugar substitute for sports drinks.
Third, avoid heavy meals and opt for frequent small meals
instead. This is because digesting a large, heavy meal requires more energy
than digesting a small one. That is why, it is advisable to eat small meals
throughout the day instead of a three traditional meals to keep your body from
doing extra work and heating up in the process.
Fourth, up your vitamin C intake. Being cooler in this dreadful hot weather could be as simple as popping a pill into your mouth! Vitamin C is found to increase the tolerance for heat by delaying sweat gland fatigue, which reduces the occurrence of heat exhaustion and prickly heat rash. Furthermore, vitamin C also keeps your body temperature from rising during heat exposure with a dose as small as 250 milligrams.
If you are still in search of a great Vitamin C supplement, Mommy J will recommend you the Shaklee Sustained Release Vita C Plus or the Shaklee Chewable C Plus for your kids!
Fifth, during days like this – a minute its hot, then the next its cold – this could cause your body system to go haywire and soon you’ll catch a fever. That is why it is so so important to keep your body healthy all the time. Fueling and providing your body with a balanced diet and keeping fit is sometimes troublesome, why not try incorporating multivitamin into your daily routine?
Shaklee Vita Lea can help boost your immune system, as well as provide you with your nutritional daily needs. Vita Lea keeps the body and mind healthy, and also provide you the energy to endure the heat. If your children have a hard time ingesting pills, Shaklee Vita Lea for Children contains the same benefits as the adult ones. It contains 100% vitamin C, D & E and all 8 of the vitamin B,
So what are you waiting for? Keep you and your family healthy and hydrated for the rest of this unpredictable weather. For more info on the products mentioned, contact Mommy J for a free consultation and best deals in town. Click here —> jeslynnseow.wasap.my to connect directly with Mommy J!

methods or regular exercise.

well. Why you ask? Well, heading on into menopause is not a Sunday drive. Before

periods, vaginal dryness, hot flashes, chills, night sweats, hot flashes, sleep
problems, mood changes and unwanted weight gain no matter how active you are.
Some may also experience high fever – what an awful transition into menopause
right? Well, Shaklee can help.
Shaklee can help you ease your way into menopause without all
the troublesome and painful symptoms. GLA Complex which promotes healthy
harmonal activities, ease and promotes healthy blood flow during periods to
reduce PMS symptoms, helps reduce diabetic neuropathy, and on the plus side,
