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. You can choose one of two flavours available – Orange or Lemon Lime!

Happy Ramadan to all our Muslim friends. Fasting can be a breeze to some, but to some it may be hard and cause some painful and uncomfortable side effects. Here are six ways to ease fasting discomforts.
No. 1 Indigestion aka Heartburn
Indigestion has many possible causes. Often, indigestion is related to lifestyle and may be triggered by food, drink or medication. Common causes of indigestion include: Overeating or eating too quickly. Although the body produces less stomach acid during fasting, heartburn and bloating are commonly-reported complaints. Thinking about food or smelling it can naturally signal to your brain that a meal is on the way, causing your stomach to generate more gastric acid which would then lead to heartburn and bloating.
Don’t fret, here are easy ways for you to reduce that uncomfortable heartburn!
√ During sahur and iftar, avoid eating too much. Eat in moderation and in slow pace. √ Avoiding oily and spicy food. √ Avoid drinks with high caffeine content (coffee, tea, sodas, etc). √ Soy may even help neutralise acid in the stomach and the oesophagus. Soy protein contains less fat than most meat and dairy products, making it a safer choice for people with gastric problems. √ Add peppermint and ginger to reduce stomach discomfort, bloating and gas.
No. 2 Constipation
During berbuka puasa, it is so important to eat right and well. Avoid refined food and opt for a healthier alternative. Too much refined foods, too little water and not enough fibre in the diet can cause constipation during fasting.
The best way to avoid constipation would be –
√Hydrate as much as you possibly can during sahur and iftar. You can try the Shaklee Drink √Performance to ensure maximum hydration as well as energy! √ Consume a fibre-rich diet with lots and lotsa fruits and vegetables √ Regulate bowel movements with Herb-LaxTM, a natural laxative.
No. 3 Lethargy
As the hours go by, you’d probably experience hunger and you might start to feel weak. This is because when you fast, glucose levels in our blood start to drop. You may experience weakness, tiredness, lack of energy and dizziness towards the afternoon during fasting hours in Ramadhan.
The most important part is to know what to consume during sahur to avoid this.
√ Get a boost of energy and stay hydrated with Shaklee Performance drink, take B vitamins and CoEnzyme Q10. √ Pre-plan you sahur and iftar meals. So you’d know what to have and not forget. Include energy sustaining foods such as the Shaklee ESP Protein and feel full and energised throughout the day!
No. 4 Headache
Now, everything seems so wrong and you really want to just give up because of not enough sleep, hungry, and feeling so so dehydrated. Hang in there. Don’t give up just yet.
Here is what you need to do to keep the headache away!
√Get adequate rest and quality sleep. Wake up feeling fresh for sahur. Reminder: Do not skip sahur! √ Incorporate ESP Protein in your meals to sustain energy and lengthen satiety effects. √ Rehydrate and power up with Performance®, with its unique blend of electrolytes.
No. 5 Dehydration
Fasting creates a greater risk of dehydration especially with the hot and dry whether in Malaysia. As a result, it may lead to fatigue, headache and nausea.
Fortunately there are a number of ways you can boost your hydration levels by doing one, two or more of these things:
√ First of – keep your body cool. Wear loose, lightly colored clothing in natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, or silk. Semi-synthetics such as rayon and modal can also be worn to combat body heat. Scientists are developing fabrics created especially to keep you cool, such as thermal regulation fabrics. Products made with these types of fabrics are often designed for sport and outdoor activities. √ Avoiding salty food like salted fish, pickles and salty snacks. Salt may further worsen the dehydration condition. √ Taking Performance®, an ideal drink that rehydrates, providing energy to keep you energised.
No. 6 Unintended Weight Gain and Obesity We may experience unintended weight gain as there could be a tendency to overeat or over-indulge in rich, fatty foods. This off-sets the physical benefits of fasting. Here are ways to keep your body healthy and fit and get that physical benefits of fasting!
√ Eating in moderation. If you’d like to take something fulfilling and fat burning, Shaklee Cinch is the best way to go! Just add in your favourite fruits and blitz with ice, and your set. √ Observing healthy eating habits through self-control and discipline. Watch what you eat and eat slowly. Overly hungry can cause eating faster than you should, so, before eating, its best to drink a glass of water and slowly eat your food. Enjoy every bite and be grateful for every bite. √ Closing nutritional gaps with Meal Shakes that provide 19 essential vitamins and minerals. √ Taking Lecithin, a natural fat emulsifier.
So, there you go! All the best and don’t give up! Take Shaklee with you and it’ll ease you journey.
such worldly creatures. No one could ever understand the ability of being a mother
– if one is not a mother. Juggling more than the number of her hands, and
sticking her neck out for all her loved ones. The last one to rest just to
secure the fort, and the first one up to make sure everything is in order before
her soldiers rise in the morning! A mother can weaken the knees of a strong big
man. A mother can stop the storm in a daughter’s heart. After a long hard day
at work or school, a mother’s warm hug can just make it all disappear. A mother
is the one you’d call first about anything and everything. A mother just knows
what to say or do to make things right.
is when people choose to celebrate their moms, to show her how grateful you are
for her. But I do personally feel that mothers should be celebrated every single
day. Show her your love her every day by helping her out with the house chores
and not being a brat about it. Before you leave the house, kiss her goodbye and
never ever forget to tell her how much you love her. Nonetheless, have you ever
wondered the history of Mother’s day? Well everything has its origin, and its
background story on how it first started. Lets read on together!
The wondrous celebration of
mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who
held festivals to honour the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele. Though the
clearest modern precedent for Mother’s day is the early Christian festival
known as, “Mothering Sunday.”
It was once a major tradition in
the UK and parts of Europe. This celebration fell on the fourth Sunday of Lent
and was originally seen as a time when the faithful would return to their “mother
church” – which is the main church in the comfort of their own home for a special
service. Over time the Mothering Sunday tradition shifted into a more secular
holiday, and children would present their mothers with flowers and other tokens
of appreciation. This custom eventually faded in popularity before merging with
the American Mother’s Day in the 1930s and 1940s.
As for the in the United States, in the years before the Civil War, Ann Reeves Jarvis of West Virginia helped start “Mothers’ Day Work Clubs” to teach local women how to properly care for their children. The official Mother’s Day holiday arose in the 1900s as a result of the efforts of Anna Jarvis, daughter of Ann Reeves Jarvis. Following her mother’s 1905 death, Anna Jarvis conceived of Mother’s Day as a way of honoring the sacrifices mothers made for their children.

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.

with countries on the South East Asia side, especially right now, in Malaysia,
when it gets too hot, swampy areas burst into flames, and causes burning. And
when it gets too hot, the ground gets hot and the trees die and get so dry that
they burn themselves. Or sometimes, burning are caused by irresponsible people.
But how can you stop this, right? What you could do is beat the haze, and stay
healthy throughout the ordeal.
No. 1 Avoid Exposure
The first thing would be to avoid exposure. Obviously. Don’t stay
outside for too long if you can. Inhaling burning residue is a life hazard. It
can make you ill – causes coughing and worst for those who has asthma. It
irritates the eye as well. Also, if you are a healthy junkie and must get in a 30
minute run, at least, do it indoors. Avoid exercising in the open. Activities that
makes you breathe deeply can make you suck in pollutants deep into your lungs. It
is also best to avoid smoking. Other than exposing your lungs to the same toxins
found in hazy conditions, smoking makes your lungs more sensitive to the effects
of the air pollutants.
No. 2 Stay Indoors!
This is the best time to stay indoors. Stay
indoors as much as possible and keep all doors and windows closed shut. It is
also best to invest in a good quality air purifier with a drop or two of lemon
essential oil as it will help you clear the air or eucalyptus or peppermint essential
oil to clear any congestion and coughing. If you have an air conditioner, turn
it on but make sure the air filter is clean!
No.3 If you can’t abide to no.1 and no.2 –
WEAR A MASK!
It is advisable that those advises those
with existing heart or respiratory ailments, or those more susceptible to the
effects of haze to wear a respiratory mask when outdoors.
Respiratory masks, such as N95
masks, are designed to keep out fine particulate matter and hence protect the
wearers from breathing in the smoke particles in the air. The mask should be
changed when it gets soiled or distorted in shape.
A note of caution: surgical
masks and paper masks do not provide adequate protection from haze particles.
Their main purpose is to prevent the spread of body fluids and do not filter
out haze particles.
No.4 Alleviate the symptoms
caused by the HAZE!
Haze often cause a couple of
known illness. It irritates the nose, throat, airways, skin as well as the eyes.
The common symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, dry throat, cough and eye
Symptoms like sneezing, runny
nose, dry throat and cough can be relieved through simple cough tablets or
mixtures available in pharmacies. Other than cough medicine, it is also best to
prevent than cure, right? Why not take Shaklee Sustained Release Vita C Plus to
boost immune system and keep your family healthy.
If you experience irritation
in the eye, it is best to apply a few drops of saline solution to act as
natural tear supplements. This will help wash away haze compounds or dust
particles that get into the eyes.
No. 5 Tweak your diet
Well, prepare your body for
the change around you. If the haze in your area continues to disrupt your daily
activity, and it is impossible for you to not go outside and get exposed, it
may help that you make certain changes in your daily nutrients that will provide
a measure of internal pollution protection.
Vitamin A rich-foods such as
liver, carrots, sweet potatoes, mangoes, spinach contains can help you protect
your eyes, lungs and the oxygen-capabilities of your bloodstream, and help put up
a wall of defence to your lungs from air pollution. The oxidizing chemicals in
haze destroy the vitamin A stores in the lung tissue, thus decreasing the
efficiency of the body’s first line of defence against carcinogens.
To easily incorporate Vitamin
A, you could try the Shaklee Vita Lea Iron Formula. It contains multi-vitamin
goodness, including Vitamin A (as beta carotene) found in carrots, sweet
potatoes, red and yellow peppers, etc.
Vitamin C and E together to
keep lung tissue healthy. It helps the body in fighting free radicals and renew
damaged cells. Daily supplements of both builds up levels of a protective
protein that prevents enzymes released during inflammation from destroying the
lung’s elastic properties. Shaklee Sustained Released Vita C Plus and Shaklee
Vita E Complex is a great combo to protect your internal organs and keeping it
healthy. Vitamin C will help you boost your immune system and keeps your skin
healthy. Vitamin E in the other hand protects Vitamin C and A from being destroyed
in the body. It also acts an antioxidant property, as well as aids in the absorption
Researchers say that selenium
activates glutathione peroxidase, as important antioxidant enzyme that helps
keep lung tissue elastic. Foods rich in selenium include grains, seeds and
fish. On the plus side, selenium can also be found in the Shaklee Vita E
Complex! Great right?
In addition, it is probably
best to avoid foods high in saturated fats. Why? Saturated fat intakes has been
linked to a higher risk of developing lung cancer. Instead, train yourself to
eat lots of salads, and other raw vegetables and fresh fruits! Lalapan sounds
great righ about now, with all the blanched local veges, you can never go wrong.
