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.

The plant extract that SPEEDS WEIGHT LOSS

Wish you could enjoy your favorite Thanksgiving fare without worrying about a few extra pounds sneaking on? You can! My favorite supplement for weight loss during the holidays and beyond is African mango seed extract. In one study, women who supplemented with it had a significantly smaller waist after two weeks, and they lost 14 times more weight than those who skipped the extract. Compounds in African mango curb appetite and flip a switch in the brain that stops the creation of fat cells. The study-proven dose: 150 mg. twice daily.

This simple swap BOOSTS ENERGY

An easy way to ward off fatigue that tends to set in during the fall and winter: Season your favorite savory dishes with seaweed flakes instead of table salt. This low-sodium pick provides salty flavor and plenty of thyroid-nourishing iodine, which helps increase energy within 30 minutes. Another plus: It boasts appetite-suppressing soluble fiber to thwart cravings, and it’s terrific on poultry, vegetables, salad or even popcorn. Tip: To preserve its beneficial enzymes, add the flakes after cooking. One to try: Maine Coast Dulse Granules (SeaVeg.com).

The simple secret to YOUNGER SKIN

Youthful radiant skin really does start from within! The key? Shoring up your stores of the healthy fat gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). The nutrient keeps cellular membranes from drying out, so skin stays smooth and supple. It can even help soothe conditions like eczema and psoriasis that tend to flare up at this time of the year. In fact, Italian scientists found supplementing with GLA cuts eczema symptoms by up to 90%. I advise taking two capsules of UNI KEY Health GLA-90 twice daily. For 15% off, use code glaww15 at UNIKEYHealth.com.

The simple way to STOP VIRUSES IN THEIR TRACKS

There’s one essential nutrient that can thwart viruses from spoiling fall fun: selenium. Your immune system requires selenium to produce proteins that prevent viruses from mutating in the body. And without enough, it can’t fight off infection. To sidestep viral infections, I advise taking a 200-mcg. selenium supplement (like Nature’s Bounty Selenium, Vitacost.com) or eating at least 16 oz. of selenium-rich foods like tuna, cod, turkey, lamb or mushrooms daily to keep level optimal.

The simple way to NIX BLADDER LEAKS

Urinary incontinence affects 50% of all women, and there’s a surprisingly common cause: constipation. When not eliminated regularly, the adult colon can hold up to 25 pounds of waste, which causes downward pressure on the bladder that can lead to leaks. To get things moving and strengthen your bladder at the same time, spend 10 minutes stretching daily – especially any move that stretches the inner thighs. Not only does this increases bladder control for 66% of women, it also speeds digestion to clear up and prevent leak-triggering constipation.
