To power off unwanted pounds, there’s a potent fix already in your pantry – apple cider vinegar (ACV). It’s packed with potassium, which helps flush toxins and cleanse the digestive tract to whisk away excess fluids. And its acetic acid stimulates your metabolism and suppresses sugar cravings, making it easier to lose weight. Bonus: Bitter compounds in the liquid get your digestive juices flowing, helping move food along to relieve belly-bloating constipation. Simply stir 2 tsp in 8 oz water and sip before meals.
When it comes to keeping your bones strong during menopause, flaxseeds are one of your best allies.
