New Addition to the Regimen

I added a little of something called “Mochatonix” in with the tea. Partly because I love mocha and chocolate, but Mochatonix also has Avantra Z. It provides a pleasant boost to energy, and alertness. those of you don’t know, I have three traumatic brain injuries, two from traffic accidents. So, anything that helps me mentally I will try. THIS WORKS. I can also hold my attention span a little longer than I was used to. It’s also a fat burner!

Mochatonix is also nutritionally balanced and well absorbed by the body.

I can also perform somewhat longer days, which is VERY important as May is National Bike Month, actually EVERY MONTH is for me.

Give Mochatonix a try!!!!!!!!!!!

My physical health is doing quite well, but I could always use help improving it, fighting free radicals (which weaken your heart muscle and eyes), and since I have a new job again, which is at my friends AMAZING new bakery in Norfolk Virginia (www.ksquaredcupcakes.com) where I am sure to have my fill of goodies, I DEFINITELY need the energy that good health brings!!!!! So, in my health regimen, I have added more nuts, fruits, and OPC-3.

What does OPC-3 do?

Combats free radicals • Demonstrates anti-inflammatory activity • Helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels • Helps maintain healthy circulation by strengthening capillaries, arteries and veins • Helps maintain joint flexibility • Helps promote cardiovascular health • Helps reduce mild menstrual cramping and abdominal pain • Helps support visual health/visual acuity • Potent free radical scavenger • Promotes healthy blood vessel dilation • Promotes healthy nitric oxide levels • Supports a healthy complexion • Supports healthy blood glucose levels • Supports healthy platelet activity • Supports healthy sperm quality • Promotes sinus comfort • Supports immune health

That’s a pretty impressive list! And OUR OPC-3 has these natural ingredients:

Grape Seed Extract (25 mg) Grape seed extract is typically extracted from the seeds of red grapes (instead of white), which have a high content of compounds known as oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). Grape seed extract is extremely rich in polyphenols, compounds with high antioxidant activity. Grape seed extract has been found to maintain healthy cholesterol levels.*

Red Wine Extract (25 mg) Red wine extract is a powerful antioxidant. This extract is found in grape vines, roots, seeds and stalks, with the highest concentration in the skins. The antioxidant properties of red wine extract contribute to maintaining healthy circulation by strengthening capillaries, arteries and veins, and promoting overall cardiovascular health.*

In the late 1990s, scientists took note of a phenomenon among the French. There were very low rates of cardiovascular problems in the provinces where residents consistently ate high fat foods and drank red wine. Scientists concluded that the protective properties of red wine have helped the French maintain cardiovascular health for years and subsequent scientific studies have further shown that the OPCs found in red wine are particularly beneficial for protecting the heart and blood vessels.*

Pine Bark Extract (Pycnogenol®) (25 mg) Pycnogenol is a natural plant extract from the bark of the maritime pine tree, which grows exclusively along the coast of southwest France in Les Landes de Gascogne. This unspoiled and natural forest environment is the unique source of pine bark. Pycnogenol is one of the most researched ingredients in the natural product marketplace. Published findings have demonstrated Pycnogenol’s wide array of beneficial effects on the body. Pine bark extract is an all natural combination of procyanidins, bioflavonoids and organic acids.

The extract has three basic properties — it is a powerful antioxidant, selectively binds to collagen and elastin, and promotes the normal production of endothelial nitric oxide, which promotes the normal dilation of blood vessels.*As one of the most potent natural scavenger of free radicals, Pycnogenol combats many aggressive free radicals before they cause oxidative stress to vital organs. Its super-antioxidant capabilities help support healthy blood platelet activity, support healthy blood glucose levels, reduce mild menstrual cramping and abdominal pain, maintain joint flexibility, promote cardiovascular health, promote healthy sperm quality, maintain healthy cholesterol levels and support a healthy complexion.*Bilberry Extract (25 mg) Bilberry extract is derived from the leaves and berry-like fruit of a common European shrub closely related to the blueberry. Extracts of the ripe berry are known to contain flavonoid pigments known as anthocyanins, which are powerful antioxidants. Scientific studies confirm that bilberry extract supports healthy vision and venous circulation. Bilberry extract helps maintain healthy circulation by strengthening capillaries, arteries and veins.*Citrus Extract (Bioflavonoids) (25 mg) Bioflavonoids are antioxidants found in certain plants that act as light filters, which protect delicate DNA chains and other important macromolecules by absorbing ultraviolet radiation. They have been found to promote cardiovascular health, help maintain healthy circulation by strengthening capillaries, arteries and veins, and demonstrate anti-inflammatory activity.*

How OURS works is that it is absorbed in the small intestine without digestion needed, ours is in softgel or powder form.

How I began to improve My Health

For almost 30 years of my life, I have been riding a bicycle, I like biking even more than driving a car or taking a train. (I kinda actually don’t like driving.) Anyway, there was a hiatus of about 15 years, due to a motor vehicle accident that left me with a traumatic brain injury.

However, about two years ago, I regained my health enough to return to bicycling. Also about two years ago, I weighed about 255 pounds, and was even heavier prior. A friend introduced me to this product called the TLS Whey Protein Shake, which comes in two flavors (I am sure they’re working on other flavors), vanilla and chocolate, and I have been using the product daily for over a year now. I weigh 245, feel healthier, and it shows, I am able to get my bike up to 20 mph (which is too fast for a sidewalk) again, (used to be able to reach 35-40 mph and maintain that)

The TLS Shake is cheaper than Boost or similar products, plus I no longer need to take vitamin pills in addition, and has ONLY 2 grams of sugar. Other products have much more sugar.

One day I may be able to pedal long distances, right now I can manage nine miles each way (eighteen roundtrip), when I was able to manage 25-30 miles. I want to exceed 25-30 miles.

Now for the day I will be healed from the brain injuries, which is on my to-do list, the best I can!!!!!

About myself:

I know I mentioned a snipet about myself in my profile, however, I’d like to expand on that. There’s more.

Well, for one thing, I mentioned AMBW. That stands for Asian Man/Black Woman relationship (also know as BWAM). I grew up with a black girl as one of my best friends, and I am part Japanese, my mother’s side.

The HRPTA is the Hampton Roads Public Transportation Alliance. We are a group that educates people, including lawmakers, on alternative transportation, including carpooling, cycling, and researching and promoting legislation that supports it. http://www.hrpta.com

I’m also a Libertarian, believing in personal choice. I choose to be a Libertarian. i also do choose to be a Christian.

Also, I have written two books. you can view & purchase them here, and thank you in advance! I have paperback and Kindle versions. One of the things about me is all the different experiences I have in life.

I like to be busy, and one day I want to own some sort of food service, in addition. 🙂

Currently I live in Virginia, but I am a native of Massachusetts.
