Good news: You can sail through this year’s flu season, which is predicted to be a doozy. How? I suggest getting more glutathione, an immunity-strengthening antioxidant. The natural compound also helps the liver flush harmful toxins, which decreases the severity of symptoms and helps speed healing if you do become ill. To get these benefits, enjoy half of a medium avocado, one of nature’s best sources of glutathione, daily. Try slicing it over a salad or mashing it up to make guacamole.
Permission to skip grueling workouts to bolster your bones in favor of having a little fun! It turns out, to encourage healthy new bone growth and stop further bone loss as you age, all you have to do is jump. The impact of simply hopping around for a few minutes coaxes more calcium into bones, which significantly increases bone density and helps prevent painful fractures if you ever take a tumble. For best results, do three sets of 10 hops each day, keeping a sturdy chair nearby for stability if needed.
