NEW YORK CITY, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ever since "The Pill" was introduced in 1962, women have been complaining about weight gain. As Hormonal Birth Control (HBC) methods have evolved (from the pill, to the shot, to the ring and the implantable rod) birth control has become convenient, affordable and almost as commonplace as taking an aspirin. But the side effect of weight gain still remains the number one complaint even though most "experts" (they must all be men) claim the birth control/weight gain link is a "myth."
Despite the "expert" opinion, in a recent informal survey about HBC and weight gain, every single woman who responded said they gained weight when they started HBC. More than a few said they keep changing their birth control method or completely stopped because the weight gain wasn't worth the trade-off. The general consensus was: "If you're using some form of HBC you've either gained a bunch of weight and can't seem to get it off, or you're in the process of gaining weight and fighting like hell to minimize the damage." In other words, complaints of increased appetite, sugar cravings and diet failure just won't go away. So much for "expert" opinion.
Dr. Amy Heaton, Ph.D., Director of Scientific Affairs for Covaxil Laboratories®, explained that differences between the results of clinical investigations and actual life experiences are not uncommon. But there is a definite connection between the use of hormone-based birth control methods and weight gain. Dr. Heaton points to a study published in The American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology that discussed the relationship between "The Pill" and a satiety (appetite-controlling) hormone called cholecystokinin (pronounced Kola-sisto-ky-nin), or CCK.
This hormone plays a huge role in telling our brains that we're full, satisfied, and ready to stop eating. But birth control seems to cause our CCK levels to drop or not respond as well as they should. And, if we are using hormone-based birth control, an alteration in CCK response can make us more likely to crave sweets, binge eat, and — of course — gain weight, with a corresponding increase in body fat. Ugh.
So when the connection between a clinically validated weight-control compound and its association with established CCK response parameters was recently revealed, it created quite a stir. This is really exciting because the weight-loss compound had been shown in previous studies to suppress appetite, automatically decrease the desire for high-fat, high-sweet foods (you know, everything that's super tasty), and resulted in significant weight loss without forcing people to follow some stringent "diet" or exercise plan.
Finally, there's a weight-control compound specifically developed to counteract weight gain caused by hormonal-based contraceptives. It's called Vitona™-hC. And, as an extra bonus, this CCK-oriented formula not only works to ﬁght the weight gain associated with HBC methods, it also contains a specialized compound that gives you a burst of energy, increases your metabolism and even boosts your mood... which means you'll not only be able to lose weight, you'll also ﬁnd yourself getting through the day with a great big smile on your face!
So where can you get Vitona? That might be a little problem. Because it takes a long time for a new product to get widespread distribution, you won't be able to go looking for Vitona at your local Target Store just yet (the anticipated distribution date is November of 2014). But not to worry… if hormonal-based birth control is causing you to gain weight in all the wrong places, you can get Vitona directly from Covaxil Labs by calling 1-800-841-8478 or visiting www.VitonaUSA.com. Vitona will run you about $49 (approx. 30-day supply). Use the promo code VITONA3 at checkout and get free shipping!*

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

Cybersecurity is a critical component of software development in many industries including medical devices. However, code is not always written to be robust or secure from the unknown or the unexpected. This gap can make medical devices susceptible to cybersecurity attacks ranging from compromised personal health information to life-sustaining treatment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Clark Fortney, Software Engineer at Battelle, will discuss how programming oversight using key methods can incre...

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software in the hope of capturing value in IoT. Although IoT is relatively new in the market, it has already gone through many promotional terms such as IoE, IoX, SDX, Edge/Fog, Mist Compute, etc. Ultimately, irrespective of the name, it is about deriving value from independent software assets participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution.
