I have been losing weight for several months and many of you may have read about my journey in my weight loss posts. In addition to my eating healthier, I have also been exercising, which has aided me in my weight loss. Many people who lose weight may not know they need vitamins and nutrients their diet alone cannot supply. When you eat fresh fruits, vegetables, grains and proteins, you do get a portion of the RDA for the required minerals and vitamins you need, but not all of them. Potomac Health, founded by a Radiation Oncologist, is a distributor of quality vitamins and nutritional supplements, including dietary and herbal. When taking these 100% natural products, you can add the vital nutrients and vitamins a healthy body needs.  Here are some of the health benefits each of these products contains:

  • Cleanse: This is a great way to start your day to aid in ridding your body of toxins you can get from eating junk and processed foods. With ingredients like natural ginger root, Cleanse helps to regulate your digestion. It also helps to absorb needed nutrients that build your immune system, which helps your body fight infection.

  • Vitamin B: This great vitamin has powerful properties for boosting your energy as well as your mood. It is also proven to reduce your risk for heart disease as well as aids in the very important production and repair of DNA. Vitamin B has also been shown to help cells burn fat, which makes it the perfect supplement for dieters.
  • Vitamin C: When you are dieting, you are putting added stress on your body. Vitamin C is the perfect way to give your immune system a boost to keep you healthy. It also contains antioxidant properties and helps lower blood pressure.

The Iron helps you fight fatigue and gives you energy, which is important when you are exercising. The Zinc helps improve your immune system,which keeps us healthy and fights infections.
