Revenue’s initiative will make health supplements – and thereby good health – unaffordable for […]

by health and nutrition advice journalist
There are two major factors that promote optimal weight management: regular exercise and a well-balanced diet. Exercising burns calories, strengthens the heart, and improves circulation which boosts the transport of oxygen and nutrients through the blood, including those that support weight loss.
