Experiment: Testing supplement tablets for good absorption

Put around ΒΌ cup of white vinegar into a glass. Then put the supplements into the glass to see how long they take to dissolve. If they dissolve within 30 minutes, then absorption is good. If it takes more than 1 hour to dissolve, this will not be a good supplement. White vinegar is similar to our stomach acids. The longer a supplement takes to dissolve, the less the absorption of nutrients.

Awareness tips for weight control

Eight Mile Plains Acupuncture & Naturopathy

If you are putting on weight, there are some tips you need to be aware of. If caused by over-eating, you should control your eating, especially carbohydrates such as sugar. If it is caused by low energy (putting on weight without any reason, exercising and controlling your diet but still not losing weight), you should see a naturopath and acupuncturist to help you to boost your energy and improve your metabolism to lose weight. Avoid any cold foods and cold drinks to avoid damage to your digestive system which can cause fluid retention.
