We rely on our devices to communicate, but the electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) our cellphones and laptops emit can trigger fatigue, brain fog, and insomnia. That’s because EMFs increase the body’s production of free radicals that damage DNA and other cellular proteins. The easy fix? Holding your phone 1 inch from your ear when you’re talking cuts EMF exposure by 75% say scientists at the University of Utah. Also smart: stashing it in a handbag rather than your pocket and leaving it in the kitchen overnight.
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%.
