I am working approximately 12 to 14 hours per day on my computer. Unfortunately this is my bread and butter but when I start working, mostly at night-time, my legs start twitching and whatever which is very uncomfortable. I have a problem because I use my feet [and thereby also my legs] to control my foot pedal when working. This is starting to interfere with my output of work. Right now, is there anything which would normally be in your cupboard or kitchen that would help?
I would like to recommend that you have your iron levels tested. Low iron levels may cause restless leg syndrome. If your iron levels are low, take Vital Iron Complex: 1 tablet per day.
To support your muscles and nerve cells, Vital Magnesium Complex and Vital Omega 3 are two products that you can take daily. Omega 3 is found in sardines and magnesium in spinach and red meat.
Please note, these products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Hi, I bought Ginkgo Biloba pills, is it suitable for 14-year-old children?Anonymous
My 16 year old daugter is slightly overweight. I calculated her BMI and it is in the obese range. I want to know what supplements she can use or if she can drink the vital fat burn tablets. She snacks a lot and claims she is hungry. She weighs 80 kilograms and is 171-172 centimetres in height. She wants to weigh 65-68 kilograms but she does not want to exercise and when i talk to her about gym she says no because she would rather exercise at home where there are not judgemental people.
But i hope you can give me advice because we do not have the large sums of money the dieticians asks for.
Thank you so much!*
