NUTRITIONAL CURE FOR WEIGHT GAIN

Carnitine, an amino acid derivative, plays a very special role regulating organic functions.

Carnitine is synthesized in the liver and kidneys. Transported by the blood, it penetrates cells, and especially muscular cells, which contain up to 40 times more carnitine than other cells in the body. Its role consists of facilitating the combustion of fat to produce energy.

Without carnitine fats cannot be burned by your muscles, resulting in fatigue, extreme sensitivity to cold, and weight gain. Your main source of carnitine is lean meat (beef or poultry).

Women who tend to gain weight just before their period, and then retain that weight after menstruating, should take more Vitamin B6. This vitamin is abundant in a number of foods:

– whole and sprouted grains

– whole grain bread

– yeast

– egg yolk

– beef liver and other organs

– soybean

– red meat

– fish

– cabbage, spinach and other green vegetables

– split peas

– fresh fruit

– milk and cheese

– molasses

Vitamin B6 plays an important role in the treatment of all premenstrual symptoms, as well as morning sickness during pregnancy, and side effects of taking contraceptive pills.

A B6 deficiency is usually caused by improper absorption or destruction of the vitamin in the body, since it is relatively abundant in food.

If you suffer from PMS (symptoms include water retention, nervousness, painful breasts, migraines, fatigue) taking B6 supplements combined with primrose oil for ten days preceding your period could help solve the problem.
