As seen in Woman’s World magazine! Half of all women will break a bone due to osteoporosis. In fact, if you’re a woman over 50, your risk of a hip fracture is equal to your risk of breast, uterine and ovarian cancer combined, according to the National Osteoporosis Foundation.To protect your bones, I recommend enjoying foods rich in a combination of minerals (silica, boron, lysine and magnesium) that work synergistically to stimulate cells that build new bone tissue. To get the benefits, enjoy 1/2 cup of leafy greens, 6 oz. of Greek yogurt or 1/2 cup of nuts daily.
For the more than 50% of women over age 50 who have thinning hair, help is here! One of my favorite ways to combat sparse strands is with rosemary. The herb contains rosmarinic acid, which has been shown to boost circulation to the scalp and promote hair growth as effectively as minoxidil. To get the benefits: Add 4 Tbs. of dried rosemary to 4 cups of boiled water. Steep for 40 minutes, then strain the brew into a large spray bottle and add 4 Tbs. apple cider vinegar; refrigerate. Spritz onto the scalp once or twice a week after shampooing.
