The Fun Way to STRENGTHEN AGING BONES!

As seen in Woman’s World magazine! Women over 50 are more at risk of fracturing a hip than getting cancer, according to research from the National Osteoporosis Foundation. Luckily, the best workout for your bones doesn’t require spending hours in the gym — and it’s fun! To encourage bone growth and prevent further bone loss, all you have to do is jump! The impact coaxes more calcium into bones, significantly increasing bone density. For best results, do three sets of 10 hops each day, keeping a chair nearby for stability, if needed.

If you’re looking for a bone support supplement formula, try Osteo-Key. This formula provides a clinically effective combination of supportive bone-building nutrients at the recommended levels.

The fun to-do that SHARPENS THINKING

Next time your mind feels a little sluggish, hum your favorite tune. The vocal cords are connected to the vagus nerve, a key communication pathway linking the brain and other parts of the body (like the heart, lungs and stomach). Humming creates vibrations that stimulate the nerve, which spurs the release of acetylcholine, a compound that quickly clears away brain fog to sharpen thinking. For an even stronger vibration (and bigger mental boost), open and close your mouth while humming your favorite Motown song.

The quick spritz that THICKENS HAIR

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.

The simple secret that STOPS AGING

We love cookouts with friends and family on beautiful summer days. The hitch? This high-heat way of cooking creates sneaky compounds called advanced glycation end products (AGEs) that accelerate aging by contributing to diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease. Luckily, you can curb the formation of AGEs just by marinating before grilling. For 2 pounds of meat, combine 2/3 cups of avocado oil, 2 Tbs. of fresh lemon juice, and your favorite seasonings. Pour over your food, cover, then refrigerate at least 4 hours before cooking.

Simple Trick for a STRONGER HEART

Enjoying a cool glass of water on a hot day is more than just refreshing: It can safeguard your ticker with every sip! Turns out chronic, low-level dehydration is common in women over 50 since the body’s thirst mechanism weakens with age. And even mild dehydration can cause muscles like your heart to temporarily shrink while thickening your blood, making your ticker work harder. The easy fix: drinking at least 8 glasses of water or herbal tea daily, ideally spread throughout the day, as your body can only absorb so much fluid at a time.

The surprising way to PREVENT CATARACTS

Turns out Vitamin C does more than just thwart colds: The nutrient also wards off sight-clouding cataracts. Dubbed “scurvy of the eye”, cataracts earned that moniker after research revealed that a deficiency in C can trigger their growth. Fortunately, Spanish investigators discovered that taking 500 mg. of Vitamin C daily reduces cataract risk by 64%, plus helps block their growth if you already have them. Researchers say that the nutrient prevents eye fluids from oxidizing and causing cloudy, blurred vision.
