Supplements and Vitamins I take :)

Wish The Flash didn't Blind Eleena lol oh well i dont have very many pictures of myself so cant be picky lol
So as I had written in my "Bio" , I have Lupus and Sjolgrens Syndrome, and Hemocromotis ( the one where u can still be anemic so I have to always get my Iron Levels checked regulatory) .  So many of you have asked what do u take for your auto Immune and in general so I thought I'de write them down...So here goes :)* Remember this post is under construction I will be adding pictures and more info as the weeks go by ;') thank u!

For Auto-Immune and for Indoor and Outdoor Allergies I take :


 Quercetin is a plant derived flavonoid found in fruits, vegetables, leaves & grains. Several studies have shown that quercetin may have anti-inflammatory & anti-oxidant properties. --This one is plant based and is gluten and allergen free (the drops are not so don't use the drops my understanding is that they have grain alcohol  in them)

Activated Quercetin™ is a unique bioflavonoid derived from plant sources. In human cell culture studies, quercetin has been shown to inhibit histamine release. Additional research needs to be conducted to confirm the effects of quercetin, if any, in humans. Bromelain is a pineapple enzyme that may assist the body in times of stress. Magnesium ascorbate is a buffered (non-acidic) form of vitamin C that helps support the immune system. *

JoAnna's Photo a Day May List

So A New friend of mine on Facebook K Larsen (Her Blog can be found here) Larsen Landing  posted about this "Photo a Day May List", and that this blog fatmumslim

Made up I thought was a great idea!! :D so I think i'm going to give it a go, here is what you are suppose to do:

Each day you look at the list and there will be a prompt that corresponds with the date of the month. For example day one is peace, so for day one you'll take a photo of something around the peace {a peace sign, something that's peaceful in your life, you doing a peace sign with your hands etc}. You then share the photo on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, your blog, Pinterest, Flickr or where ever you want to share it.

It's a fun way to be creative every day and it's so much to be part of. Anyone can play {even if you haven't played before}. MORE INSTRUCTIONS CAN BE FOUND HERE: INSTRUCTIONS
