Are You Getting Enough
Found naturally in citrus, vitamin C, or ascorbic
acid, is involved in many body functions. These
include the formation of collagen, absorption of
iron, the immune system, and the maintenance of
cartilage, bones, and teeth. Because the human body
cannot produce vitamin C, people must rely on what
they eat to get adequate amounts of the vitamin.
Unfortunately, most people don’t meet vitamin C
recommendations through diet alone. More than a
quarter of people in the US are marginally deficient
(not even reaching the RDA amount), and up to 20
percent are severely deficient in some populations.
Supplementing diet with a vitamin C supplement such
as C-Lyte is an easy and convenient way to ensure
people are getting enough of the essential vitamin.

Yoga 101: History, Popular
Styles and Health Benefits
by Lisa Richards
When it comes to fully understanding and
appreciating the intricacies of Yoga, the modern
belief of leaving the past in the past and only
looking ahead is certainly not the way to go. In
order to fully grasp the varied concepts of Yoga, it
is vital to educate oneself on the history of the
practice and understand how it evolved into the
activity in which we take so much joy in the present
Though some say that Yoga is as old as civilization
itself, the earliest hard evidence can be traced to
a set of stone seals depicting yoga poses that date
back to 3000 B.C. Learned scholars on the subject,
though, maintain that Yoga may be even older than
this, going as far back as the time of Stone Age
This is a sensible assumption as both Yoga and
Shamanism share key values and interests concerning
the improvement of the human condition, and though
we recognize modern Yoga to be an activity very much
about the self, the practice was originally more
community-based before the change to inward focus. To continue
