Obvious reason why retail spending has been dipping low

Retail spending has been sluggish and dipping compared to yesteryear. Many people can't figure out why and simply trying to boost sales without knowing the actual reason would not do much.

The population has been aging and many people have been getting life-threatening illnesses such as cancer and heart disease. Just a single hospitalization could dramatically lower a family's budget for non-essential items. This is not just happening in Singapore but all over the world as well.

Let see where people's money are going -

1) Hospitalization and consultation
2) maids
3) medication
4) special foods for illnesses

Many people have also been dealing with problems of aging or loneliness. People would spend money at -

1) spas and salons for beauty treatments, more so for DIY treatments.
2) anti-aging lotions and supplements online
3) weight-loss stuff online
4) make-up stuff online

Phytoceramides review



I tried it for 2 weeks and I got similar results when I was taking collagen. It will take longer to show results because it is not as potent as collagen, but it is much cheaper. It is vegan that suits my diet. You will also have to use night and day face creams because there is no use if you only improve your inner skin but don't improve your surface skin, the results will only be hidden deep within.

LOTS OF SUCCESS GAINZ FINALLY!!

LOTS OF SUCCESS GAINZ FINALLY!! I share with you my precious secrets for free in the hope that you can GAINZ your own happiness from bodybuilder!

I finally crossed the 70 kg(154 lbs) hard-to-cross barrier today. What I have been doing this past 14 days is:

-take vegan glucosamine
-take phytoceramides
-take aspartic acid
-take protein shake that contains digestive enzymes after workout and twice the amount before bedtime
-take pre-workout and post-workout drinks that contain BCAA, creatine, glutamine
-do a body-shaking routine after workouts and after taking showers
-take glutamine everyday(already started doing this before)
-take vitamin supplements(already started doing this before)
-do deadlifts
-workout 3 times a week, at least one day in between

vegan glucosamine - Many vegans might lose their precious glucosamine due to diet and it is always logically to fill the body up to its maximum storage of glucosamine more so when it is exerting itself with bodybuilding and fitness.

phytoceramides - People lose certain substance in their skin such as ceramides as they age. Taking supplements would restore the original amount of ceramides in the skin and gain the original volume of moisture in the skin causing it to look youthful.

aspartic acid - people lose testosterone after the age of 30 and helping to fill up the body with lost testosterone is only logical for gaining muscle and losing fat.

protein shake that contains digestive enzymes - certain digestive enzymes has been able to increase protein absorption by 10X. I took 2 servings of MRM protein powder(2 x 24g) before going to sleep when the body is regenerating itself and also when muscle production is at its highest level.

pre-workout and post-workout drinks that contain BCAA, creatine, glutamine and other stuff - I feel lots of energy and wakefulness before workout and I don't feel any muscle aches even after a day after workout.

body-shaking routine - shaking the body is one of the methods to treat traumatic soldiers coming back from battle zones. I tried just a simple body shaking technique and I feel like I just returned from a beach vacation for the entire day. Relaxing the muscles and body and reducing stress is a major factor for allowing the muscles to grow if you don't already know. Animals also do it frequently. Is this any wonder why Taylor Swift made a music video about 'shaking' off the hate from haters??? She probably tried an exercise to shake off her stress from a psychologist? Just stand  on the floor and proceed to bend the knees just a few cm down and then go back up again. Do this quickly and you will get to shake the whole body. Shaking causes a vibration that is similar to dancing, listening to music and singing that are methods for relaxation.

glutamine - this preserves the glutamine stores in the body that can run out during stressful times in the gym and from other areas. If left unreplenished, the body will take it from the muscles that will cause them to lose their mass.

vitamin supplements - this ensure the intake of all crucial vitamins and minerals on days when one forgets to eat properly.

Taking supplements is like buying health insurance. It ensures that in certain demanding times, the body will have all the backup supplies to sustain and push itself forward while not losing anything away. Not buying health insurance is to gamble with one's body. If one losses the gamble, one could wither away much of the body in the process and end up very insufficient and in 'debt'.

Many people think that they are already very evolved and that nature will take care of everything. But human evolution is not yet complete and perfect, we still have a long way to go in the path of genetic evolution. Humans evolve at different rate from animals. It does not mean that if an animal can do something then humans can also do it, this is thinking that humans are physically superior to animals when a human cannot even produce B12 like a cow can, nor can a human run up to over 100km/hr like a cheetah can. Egoistic people will think that they are already genetically perfect and will not seek help. And look what happens to such people? They will eventually lose the battle and their genetic weakness eventually causes them to drop at their knees by being less than they would have been if they would just accept the help that they can readily obtain from Nature.

Confusion about right amount of protein to consume RESOLVED!!

There has been much intense discussion regarding the right amount of protein intake for muscle-building in this group as well as in other websites. However, many have neglected to see the other numerous factors regarding muscle building. Protein, Exercise, And Factors Affecting Muscle Mass. http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/md97.htm Some factors and conditions are: protein intake energy intake cellular hydration intake of leucine in presence of sufficiency of other amino acids intake of glutamine in presence of sufficiency of other amino acids nervous stimulation Muscle stretch, Overtraining Testosterone (and anabolic steroids) Growth hormone Insulin-like growth factor one (IGF-I) Normal thyroid hormone Catecholamines (including synthetic ß-adrenergic agonist such as clenbuterol) Glucocorticoids Physical trauma, infection I will add the availability of enzymes in food and digestive track, as well as health of digestive track to the factors and conditions listed. Muscle building is not an upward curve. Muscle volume production does not always increase, it can suffer a reduction for many reasons such as skipping meals and illness. Studies have shown that doubling the daily allowance of protein intake with diet and exercise protects muscle loss- https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/08/130829110430.htm Those muscular people who promote moderate to low protein diet often are the ones who do not suffer much muscle loss due to their strict exercise and diet regime. However, many others do not have the luxury of having as much time and energy to focus on bodybuilding as the muscular people do. So, to compensate for the gaps in the lack of gym time and sufficient diet, a doubling of protein intake would protect against the loss of muscle while the individual can still carry on after the lapse in gym and diet to fullfill his/her bodybuilding goals. So to sum it all up, one needs less protein if he/she is lucky to frequent the gym and kitchen. One needs much more protein if he/she is less lucky in such areas. Problem solved, have a nice day!
http://sg.iherb.com/Arthur-Andrew-Medical-Aminolase-TPA-Total-Protein-Assimilation-250-mg-30-Capsules/59939
“Aminolase is a powerful performance enzyme blend that allows for nearly 100% of ingested protein to be utilized for muscle building, strength, recovery and immune function. In a university study, Aminolase converted 25 grams of whey protein to nearly 100% amino acids whereas the placebo average conversion rate was 15%. Wasted protein can cause gas, bloating, and kidney stress. Whether you're a fitness enthusiast or a gracefully aging adult, aminolase enables you to benefit from any and all protein that you consume. Aminolase supports normal weight, strength, pump, endurance and digestion.”

Things I bought from iherb part 9

Wow! Woke up feeling like I am seventeen again mentally. Image visualization during the sleep awakening stage is so fluid and transcends over to the awakened stage. Finally discovered orange juice to be able to mask the strong taste of these two sick ingredients. Those who wish to remain 'natural' would def remain naturally 'normal' and insufficient. Nature has more to offer but some people just won't take it due to ego. 

Just realize they make fake orange juice taste like the real thing because watermelons contain citrulline but in much lesser amounts. Not taking such supplements is like only choosing to move naturally with your legs instead of taking a ride. You'all be the turtle way behind the rabbits.

NDE Experiences of Love





These two NDE videos from YouTube are some of the few that I believe to be quite true. The two people in the videos talked about the Love shown to them on the other side. The first one is a scientist and the second is someone that once abandoned Love.

Actually, I do believe in a Jesus-like being because I have actually experienced someone similar when I was unconscious. He was also dressed in a white robe and said that the immense anger I once felt long ago towards certain people when I was a teen would in the future be replaced by something white and perhaps it also represents the quality of peace and the objectivity found in innocence and Love.

I feel that if mankind has indeed sinned, the original most important sin would be that of the splitting of the feminine and masculine qualities, represented by the splitting of Adam and Eve, that when cooperated together is the foundation of Love. The feminine quality would be that of gentle passiveness, the masculine quality would be that of active aggressiveness. I think such a split of the dual qualities has led to the split of objective perspective that has led to judgmental non-Love also similar to non-acceptance and non-understanding, and therefore caused the multitude of sins that followed after.

If Mankind would to accept that they have sinned and in order to repent and turn from their sins, I think that they would have to acknowledge that their souls once separated between the feminine and masculine qualities that led to their other sins. And the other important sin that they should acknowledge is that they did not practice Love while in the Earthly existence.

Jesus represents the dual qualities combined as an example of Love, and also represents the child-like objective quality the Bible said to come from children. So I think that in order to get to Heaven, one has to Love people as Jesus did in that loving child-like state.

Once the soul has accomplished this, the original sin or the mistake that the soul has once created right at the beginning would be resolved by itself, and the soul would be able to return to Heaven or The Garden of Eden.

If people would simply to only say that they accept Jesus Christ as savior and go to Church, but know not of how to practice Jesus' way of child-like Love by cooperating the feminine and masculine qualities to Love in the child-like way, they would still not be able to fulfill the souls' mission to practice Love in this human existence, and they would not be able to return to Heaven.

In the Book of Genesis, there is the story of Satan tempting the soul by biasing it to think of an object(apple) as something to be good. It first got the soul to practice judging by getting it to think of something to be good(desirable to exist) or bad(undesirable to exist). In actual fact, there is no such thing as something to be 'desirable' or 'undesirable' to exist since everything is a cause-and-effect part of Nature and has its own place in reality.

If one gets biased to think of something to be good(desirable to exist) or bad(undesirable to exist), then consciousness is fragmented and one perceives the smaller picture and practices unfair discrimination by perceiving certain things or person to be more desirable to exist compared to others.

There cannot be Love if one perceives something to be desirable or undesirable to exist because Love is to accept everything as being accepted to have its own existence in reality, while not necessarily meaning that everything in reality is compatible for the soul to experience.

To Love might simply be to respect one's existence to be 'normal' or to be of a natural part of reality. This might seem simple but such would take massive cooperated qualities of feminine/passiveness and masculine/aggressiveness to achieve, by perceiving the bigger picture of reality and finding out why certain people act the way they did, or the cause of how certain situations came into being. To practice non-Love is simply to reject something to be undesirable to exist and to accompany such rejection with an emotion of disgust.

So for example for those who sexually abuse kids, we might not want them to be near our kids, but we can still Love them by accepting them to have their own place in reality. While the God in the Bible might perceive certain things or people to be bad(undesirable) to exist, I believe in an all-understanding and open-minded God that allows all kinds of people and situations to exist because every experience can offer a person the opportunity to understand reality and practice Love no matter how impossible it might seem.

Since the happenings in the Garden of Eden that might represent how souls separated from a wider perspective, the consciousness in mankind was split and biased to perceive things to be either good(desirable to exist) or bad(undesirable to exist). The ones who wrote the words of the Bible might also have been susceptible to such bias and unconsciously added in some of their own thoughts that reflected their bias towards certain things, a possible example is the perception of homosexuality to be undesirable to exist in reality.

The Bible might be a basic set of teachings, it might also have been altered by the writers' bias in perspective. You have to decide for your own self what is the real true nature of Love, whether it is the one taught by the Bible to reject certain 'undesirable' things to have its rightful existence in reality, or to choose another perspective of Love that is not limited to the distant past.

My accumulated supplement, anti-aging, health and fitness diet knowledge

This is an update on my supplement, anti-ageing, health and fitness diet knowledge to share with other new vegans who are into fitness. It has been one year 2 months since I started focusing on supplements and I am finally feeling and looking the way I wanted to gain from taking supplements and from really eating optimally.

One year 2 months is not a short time, I have a very high IQ so I could figure this out pretty quickly. If you think you know better as a beginner or novice then stay on your way, I know I am right because I can see and feel all the results. I have been vegan for 18 years so I have been through all the struggles than come with being on this diet.

Feel free to suggest more to add to this list.

Vegetables, fruits and multi-vitamin pills(Methyl B12 and others) are the basic. You can buy the listed supplements from www.iherb.com

[how to avoid getting sick that can interfere with muscle training]
Take berry juice concentrate or lemon juice to avoid getting sore throats. Take glutamine to avoid muscle infections. Clean up mouldy stuff in your room and machine filters that are the worse cause of sickness.

[how to eat for best anti-aging results]
When eating high-GI foods, mix it with sufficient omega 3 fats and protein. For example when eating mashed potatoes, mix it with sunflower and flax oil, and vegan bacon bits for the protein.

Take lemon and other alkaline foods for negative ions that can increase lifespan and prevent cancer.

Fruit juices are high in sucrose, glucose and fructose and can cause glycation. It is better to take fruits without juicing them.

[How to get good skin externally]
Bath with shower lotion that contains marula oil, mafura butter, argan oil. Tighten skin with DMAE gel.

[mix supplements with foods for optimal absorption]
Powdered supplements are more absorbed compared to tablets because they are already mixed with food before entering the body.

Add powdered supplements such as calcium citrate, creatine, glutamine, arginine to foods such as mashed potatoes.

[How to take protein powder with enjoyment]
Do not drink it, mix it with omega 3 oils, brown sugar and water to turn it into a peanut butter kind of mix.

Add other powdered supplements while you're at it such as calcium citrate, creatine, glutamine(take alone for better absorption).

[foods to avoid]
Fried foods, cocoa and coffee can cause cancer because they contain toxins and cancer-causing agents. The marketing hype keeps people in the dark. Take carob instead of cocoa for heavy users.

MSG taste enhancers can cause headaches interfere with an optimal life.

[common health and diet fallacies]
What defines natural is not by consuming what is only found on trees/soil or vegetables that look green.

What is natural is to give the body what it needs even with supplements(B12 and others), this is what is really being natural.

The body naturally creates myostatin that inhibits muscle growth and creatine(naturally found in the body) can naturally reduce myostatin.

It is not natural for the body to be muscular on its own. Being a so-called 'natural bodybuilder' is an oxymoron term.

To be natural is to be basic and anti-proactive.

Being skinny is natural. However, taking creatine to build muscles is also natural.

It is also natural to seek what you want for yourself.

What is artificial is to not follow your human desires but become like a robot.
