A little-known symptom of menopause, heart palpitations take many women by surprise. While they are often harmless, palpitations can overstimulate the heart, causing it to work harder. An easy fix: magnesium. I recommend taking 1,000 mg. daily, making sure to get a form that contains magnesium taurinate, which targets heart health and palpitations. Bonus: Magnesium taurinate has also been shown to dial back migraines! Note: Check with a doctor before supplementing for heart health.
To melt stubborn pounds, an under-the-radar hero can help: bee pollen! It speeds calorie burn and enhances digestion, thanks to its rich stores of fat-dissolving lecithin and nutrients that inhibit the body’s ability to store fat. In addition, it’s high in phenylalanine, a compound shown to dampen cravings. In fact, studies found that adding bee pollen granules to a glass of lukewarm water and drinking it 20 to 30 minutes before a meal effortlessly decreases food intake by up to 20%.
