  1. Default January 2018 Vitamin/Supplement Challenge

    WELCOME to the Vitamin/Supplement Challenge

    The third leg of Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution (the first two being controlling carbs and exercising) is to ensure you obtain the appropriate Vita-Nutrients for your health conditions. For some people, this may mean a multi-vitamin. Others choose supplementation with a variety of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, including herbs.


    Sign up and commit to taking your supplements for the month of January. Check into this thread once a day, if possible, and tell us simply that you took your vitamins. There's no need to say which kinds or how many (although you are free to share that information)...just that you remembered to take them.
    Each Challenger, who signs up by January 15, will get 1 Free Day available for the month. If you sign up after January 15 you do not get the free day. You get the award, if you are successful but not the free day.

    PLEASE state the date along with your daily post so I know which day you're posting for. Thanks.

    Tips:

    • Re-read Chapter 11 "And Away You Go: The Induction Phase" of DANDR to learn more about what Dr. Atkins recommended for all those on the Atkins Nutritional Approach.
    • There is more information in Chapter 23 once you decide to do Atkins for Life.
    • Lastly, read Dr. Atkins' Vita-Nutrient Solution for the full spectrum of his supplement recommendations.

    benefits of taking biotin:
    Biotin is used for preventing and treating biotin deficiency associated with pregnancy, long-term tube feeding, malnutrition, and rapid weight loss. It is also used orally for hair loss, brittle nails, skin rash in infants (seborrheic dermatitis), diabetes, and mild depression.
    webmd

    As part of the B-vitamin family, biotin plays a role in producing energy in your body. During the ongoing metabolic processes that occur, carbohydrates, fat and protein are broken down into glucose, fatty acids and amino acids, respectively. Biotin and the rest of the B vitamins are essential nutrients for converting these macronutrients into fuel to power all the cells in your body. Without a steady supply of biotin, you could feel overly tired throughout the day.
