Many of us have heard of Green Tea.  We all know it is a very healthy substance.  But how many of you know that using the extract can help you lose weight?  Some feel this to be true because the caffeine in the tea can give you a boost and you feel energized to do more.  Well, after research was done, it was found that caffeine itself did not have fat burning effects on its own.  So, how could this fact be true?  

The answer is not known.  However, Green Tea Extract exerts some other effect on the body that increases the body’s overall fat burning process.  That means, the more energy your body puts out, the more calories you burn and hence the weight loss.  Now the weight loss occurs mostly in the day.  That would mean your best chance to lose more weight is to do your physical exercises in the morning.  I know, its difficult these days to do. 

One word of caution though. Those who have a hyperactive thyroid or are taking Thyroid medications to increase metabolism due to a slow thyroid, this extract to cause an issue.  A hyperactive throid gland means you bodies is overproducing hormone and your metabolism is faster than normal.  Those with a slow thyroid, under-produce and have slower metabolisms.  The Thyroid medication helps to speed that up to normal.  So this extract to interfere one way or another.  Be sure to consult your doctor first about this.  

So, if using the extract can help you lose weight, consider its use in conjunction with other vitamins like B-12 or B-complex.  Vitamins that also work within the body to increase energy.  Putting those together could make for one great mix of vitamins and could help you if you are actively working out and dieting.  So the next time you purchase a Vitamin supplement, check to see if the this combination is present.  it could help yield great dividends.

Who Am I May 26, 2009

Hello to all!!  I am happy to be here.  As you can see this is my first post.  Just want to introduce myself.  My name is David Medina.  I am a full time, licensed, Pharmacist here in NY.  I have been practicing for 11 years now.  I have done the whole store thing.  I have done home IV therapy, nursing homes and now specialize in Hospice care.  In my 11 years, I have seen enough to know the medical system is tough here in the United States.  I see many who are ill.  Unfortunately, many stay ill for 1 or both of the following reasons: 1) They don’t have the money or coverage 2) They don’t posses the knowledge.  It is very hard as a person who wants to help others see people remain ill because their medications cost so much.  However, if we here in the United States could start increasing our knowledge of the body, perhaps we can lead happier and fuller lives.  That movement is well on its way already. 

Therein lies my purpose in being here.  I plan to devote this blog to matters of health and wellness, and money/business topics.  This medium is great for this.  As a pharmacist my biggest frustration, felt by many in fact, is that our system wants us to provide a high quality of care through information.  Yet the system has made it so difficult to stay in business, it has become more about volume than quality.  Now there may be exceptions, but this is largely the truth.  Therefore, I will now use the knowledge I have and am obtaining through my own efforts to help others on my own terms.  You will get to know me…if you choose of course.  It is my mission to bring value to the people that read this.  I hope to encourage dialogue and perhaps to start the wheels of change for some.  I am at YOUR servce.
