As seen in Woman’s World magazine! Sidestep your post-lunch sweet tooth by crunching on a pickle. Its sour flavor triggers the production of enzymes that automatically quiet the desire for sweets. Snack on your favorite store brand or make your own: Cut 4 cucumbers into spears and drop into a medium bowl with one-half cup of apple cider vinegar, 1 minced garlic clove, and 1 teaspoon of fresh dill. Cover and refrigerate for at least six hours. Enjoy!
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.
