As seen in Woman’s World magazine! As the weather gets colder and drier, our nails are more prone to break and crack. Thankfully, adding gamma linolenic acid to your daily diet can work wonders to strengthen them. That’s because this healthy omega-6 fatty acid actually increases cell resilience, so nails grow stronger, and it provides a steady supply of moisture to keep nails smooth and supple. To get the benefits, I recommend taking up to 2,000 mg of GLA daily, preferably from cold-pressed black currant seed oil or evening primrose oil.
An easy way to ward off fatigue that tends to set in during the fall and winter: Season your favorite savory dishes with seaweed flakes instead of table salt. This low-sodium pick provides salty flavor and plenty of thyroid-nourishing iodine, which helps increase energy within 30 minutes. Another plus: It boasts appetite-suppressing soluble fiber to thwart cravings, and it’s terrific on poultry, vegetables, salad or even popcorn. Tip: To preserve its beneficial enzymes, add the flakes after cooking. One to try: Maine Coast Dulse Granules (SeaVeg.com).
