Do you ever wish you could have more, better or different in your life?
Lately I’ve found myself wanting exactly that.
It all came about as I was thinking about my goals and dreams, and really reflecting on my life.
Anyways, I’m writing you today because I've recently joined the Proctor Gallagher Streaming Club - a membership where I get to spend time each week LIVE with two thought leaders who have mastered success, Bob Proctor and Sandy Gallagher.
You might know Bob from the hit movie The Secret.
If you’ve never heard of them, you should definitely look them up. In this Streaming Club they share powerful lessons, study books with us in a LIVE setting, go in depth on big ideas and take Q&A.
If you are at all interested in taking your life to the next level I highly recommend joining this powerful program – and you’ll be shocked at the low investment.
Do you hope for a dream life?
Hope alone won’t get you there.
You can dramatically increase your results with just six minutes a day and less money than coffee and donuts.

A new study shows that providing zinc supplementation to normally healthy zinc-deficient women reduces pregnancy complications and improves neonatal health outcomes.

Zinc is an essential mineral that is necessary for normal growth, immune function and neurological development. Iron and folic acid are routinely supplemented during pregnancy, but less emphasis has been put on zinc, although a low zinc level can result in poor pregnancy outcomes.
In a new study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, researchers evaluated the effect of two regimens of zinc supplementation on pregnancy outcomes. Participants in the double-blind, randomized controlled trial were 675 normally healthy pregnant women between the ages of 20 and 45 years. Eligible subjects had a serum zinc level below the estimated average requirement for gestational age. The women were randomly assigned to one of three regimens: Zinc supplementation alone (30 mg/day of zinc sulfate), a combination of 30 mg/day of zinc sulfate plus multivitamins (B1, B6, D3, C and E), or a placebo. The women were monitored from recruitment until one week after delivery.
Both zinc alone and in combination resulted in significantly fewer 2nd and 3rd stage pregnancy complications when compared to placebo. In addition, stillbirth, pre-term delivery, and complications such as respiratory tract infections were reduced in both groups supplemented with zinc. There was no significant difference in the average birth weight between the three groups.
The results of this study showed that in pregnant women with low zinc levels, supplementation with zinc is effective in reducing pregnancy complications and early neonatal complications such as respiratory tract infections.

In a recent study of normal weight adults, a meal consisting of low-glycemic carbohydrates improved cognitive function after meals better than a high-glycemic meal.
Read more about this research below.
Glucose is an important sugar for proper brain function, and the rate of glucose delivered to the brain after a meal may influence cognitive performance. In a study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers evaluated the effects of glucose absorption directly after a meal, and how the rate of absorption affects cognitive performance. Individual responses to glucose and insulin (glucoregulation) were also evaluated for potential differences in cognitive function.
The study participants included 40 healthy adults of healthy weight (BMI < 30) aged 49-71 years. Test meals included white wheat bread (WWB) as the standard high glycemic food, and a WWB enriched with guar gum (G-WWB) as a low-glycemic food as a comparison. In a cross-over design, subjects were evaluated for cognitive function (working memory and selective attention) after consuming one of the test meals and during the hours after the meal (postprandial period).
The G-WWB meal improved the outcome in the cognitive tests in the later postprandial period (75–225 min) in comparison with the WWB. Subjects with better glucoregulation performed better in cognitive tests compared with subjects with worse glucoregulation.
Researchers suggested that the superior cognitive performance in the group eating the lower GI meal may be due to improved insulin sensitivity, and possibly in combination with an improved neural energy supply. The results of this study support the idea that carbohydrate foods that induce a slow and sustained blood glucose profile may support improved brain function after a meal in comparison to high glycemic foods.
