Magnesium is key for heart health, but most women over 50 lack ample stores. That’s why I advise supplementing with 5 mg. of the nutrient per pound of body weight (750 mg. for a 150-pound woman, for example). Research shows it relaxes blood vessels, making it easier for the heart to pump blood and keep your blood pressure in the safe zone. Tip: Avoid taking magnesium with meals, It neutralizes stomach acid, which prevents your body from digesting food and absorbing nutrients as efficiently.
One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.
