I noticed something about myself (duh?), aku akan beli benda yang dah lama aku terfikir-fikir nak beli tapi tak beli-beli time marahkan YB. Dalam perasaan amarah tu dah malas nak fikir-fikir lagi terus zasss beli. Kalau waras, nak beli untuk apa? Berapa tahap priority pembelian? Urgent atau boleh ditangguhkan? Etc.
So it happened again yesterday. Instead of just getting some supplements - evening primerose oil (EPO) for my tak betul period cycle and multivitamins, I ended up buying collagen concentrate and pills. Macam-macam aku beli T______T. Jangan tanya berapa total damages, aku ngeris nak jawab. Tsskkk.
It is a really bad habit. Asal aku marahkan si polan je, aku membeli-belah. Kang duit aku yang habis. Kalau duit si polan yang aku perabiskan takpelah jugak, kan? Kahhh.
Bought these supplements at Health Line (or Health Care?) Pharmacy. Best shopping dalam ni sebab ada discount. Blackmores products yang aku beli ni both ada 20% off. Kalau beli kat Watson's or Guardian mana ada discount, kan?
Benefits of Evening Primrose Oil
Research suggests that evening primrose oil may be of little value in the management of premenstrual syndrome or menopausal symptoms. However, other studies indicate that evening primrose oil may help with the following conditions:
Evening primrose oil may help relieve the itching, crusting, redness, and swelling associated with atopic eczema, according to a meta-analysis published in 2006. Fatty acids are thought to play a role in these beneficial effects.
2) Rheumatoid Arthritis
To date, there's little research on the effectiveness of evening primrose oil in treating rheumatoid arthritis (an inflammatory condition that causes pain and swelling of the joints). However, a report published in 2001 suggests that evening primrose oil may have indirect anti-inflammatory actions and may help manage this autoimmune disease.
3) Breast CancerFor full article, please read here and another article here
Preliminary research suggests that GLA may help destroy tumors without inducing damage to normal cells or causing harmful side effects. And in a small study published in 2000, researchers found that participants who took GLA supplements in addition to the breast cancer drug tamoxifen responded more quickly to breast cancer treatment than those who took tamoxifen alone.

Ini pulak benefit dari astaxanthin: (never head before, baru semalam tahu and zasss googled about it)
One of the most frequently-reported benefits of astaxanthin is an improvement in skin quality. There is evidence that astaxanthin not only prevents UV sun damage from occurring, but may actually help to reverse external signs of aging from the inside out. This has been clearly demonstrated in human clinical trials.
Many users of astaxanthin supplements report that they are able to spend significantly more time out in the sun without burning than they were able to before. This is due to the powerful anti-inflammatory properties that astaxanthin has. (A sunburn is essentially an inflammation of your skin).
Dr. Nicholas Perricone, one of the world's leading antiaging experts, highly recommends astaxanthin for reducing wrinkles and age spots, improving moisture levels, elasticity and smoothness, and for giving your skin a beautiful, healthy glow.
Several cosmetic manufacturers have begun to use astaxanthin as an ingredient in facial and body creams to provide UV protection and heal damaged skin.
Astaxanthin benefits cover virtually the entire spectrum available from antioxidants. Aside from those previously mentioned, here are some other benefits of astaxanthin:For full article, please read here
