Make 2007 the Year to Get Healthy

By Robert Maguire

New Year's resolutions are as much a tradition as any other holiday habit; so too is the fact that often, by January 2nd, the resolution has been abandoned.  But no more, because this can be the year that you make it work. Millions of people resolve, year after year, to get healthy, whether by exercising more, quitting smoking, or losing weight. Unfortunately, many people just fall back into their daily patterns.   What if 2007 is the year to actually make it stick?  Health supplements can be a great place to start.

When trying to find the right health supplement for your needs, you will see that there are an awful lot of claims out there. For weight control, there are products like chromium, cayenne, and green tea, among a myriad of other choices. These are supposed to work by maintaining blood sugar levels, suppressing the appetite, or simply giving you an energy boost. In the case of green tea, some users claim that it might actually inhibit the digestion of fats. Of course, there are no studies that actually prove this beyond a doubt, but if your doctor okays this addition of health supplements, then it is worth a try. And if you use the tea as a replacement for your sugar and cream-filled coffee, you may just find that the weight start to come off.

Another supposed benefit of green tea is that it acts like a detoxifier.  Chinese medicines routinely include green tea as an ingredient because of the boost the immune system gets.  This may or may not be true, but many people rely on green tea as a part of their diet.  And it also is included in some smoking cessation formulas sold as health supplements; when coupled with other Chinese herbs like lotus seed, ginseng leaf, and licorice root, many people believe that their respiratory systems are cleansed and detoxified.  Other health supplements claim to cut nicotine cravings, boost the immune system and energy levels, among other things.

Resolving to boost your health this New Year is a great start. Consult your doctor before beginning any health supplement regime, of course. After you have the okay, visit your local health food store and be on your way to a healthy and happy new year.
