Homocysteine (big word) is like Cholesterol. If it's high, serious conditions can occur, such as stoke, heart attack, diabetes, dementia, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer's.
It's important to know your homocysteine level because it's an accurate way to determine your present health and predict your likelihood for major diseases.
Vitamin C is used by every cell in your body, and yet your body cannot manufacture or store it. Taking vitamin C helps to:

*Detoxify your body
*Speed wound recovery
*Keep natural defenses up
*Fight fatigue due to stress
Since this is "heart month," let's talk about "Heart Attack Warning Signs." Some heart attacks are sudden and intense, but most of them start slowly, but with mild pain or discomfort. Here are some that can mean a heart attack is happening:
*Chest discomfort. Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center of the chest that lasts for more than a few minutes, or that goes away and comes back. It can feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain.
*Shortness of breath. This feeling often comes along with chest discomfort, but it can occur with or without chest discomfort.
*Other signs. These may include breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.
If you or someone you're with has one or more of these signs, call 9-1-1. Get to the hospital right away.
Valentine's Day is February 14th. Be extra nice to that lady in your life this day. Roses and candy are traditional at this time, but a single rose and a big smile sounds sweet to me.
30 days has September, April, June and November. All the rest have 31, except February, which has 28... which is fine, until Leap Year gives it 29.
Happy Valentine's Day!
