I Quit Sugar For 4 Weeks And This Is What Happened

Sugar is everywhere. Even in places, you’d never expect it. When I decided to give up sugar, I assumed that meant foregoing dessert and giving up my favorite snack – Peanut Butter Cap’n Crunch cereal, but I soon learned that it was going to take a whole lot more than that.


For years, I told myself that sugary treats, especially things like cereal, hard candies, jelly beans and the like, weren’t really all that bad for me because they contained little, if any, fat.

While there is some debate as to whether the benefits are worth risking the side effects, which we’ll discuss a bit later, there is evidence to believe green coffee may be very beneficial for those who can tolerate caffeine.

How To Make Vitamin A For Skin Care

Vitamins are organic substances that are essential for normal metabolism, growth and development. They are not energy sources, and they do not make any significant contribution to the substance of the body.

They are, however, indispensable for good health. To maintain the integrity of the skin, the body needs vitamin A, as it is heavily involved in the growth, elasticity, strength and repair of surface tissues. Topical application of vitamin A in the form of retinol can reduce shallow wrinkling of the skin and aid in the repair of damage due to overexposure to the sun.
