Timing trick that BLASTS BELLY FAT

Now that the weather is getting nicer, surveys reveal 80% of us are planning to spend more time than ever outdoors. And getting out before it gets too hot is a smart move for weight loss. Research published in the British Journal of Nutrition reveals that going for a walk in the morning before breakfast helps burn 20% more belly fat than walking after the morning meal. That’s because the body burns up energy stored in muscle cells overnight, so when you move before a meal, the body has to switch to burning stored fat for fuel.

    Walking in the morning before I commute to work helps keep me alert. Good to know it is helping to keep my weight down too.

    I will start doing this in the morning. I just need to get up a little earlier.

    Especially in the Summer, this is the only time when it is cool enough to walk. I’m so glad it is helpful for losing my belly fat too.

The surprising secret to HEALTHY TEETH AND GUMS

Healthy gums block bacteria from traveling through the body, which protects against dementia, heart disease and COVID complications. Now, Danish researchers have found that a toothpaste with CBD oil eliminates 262% more of the bacteria than leading toothpaste brands. What’s more, research has shown that CBD may reduce gum and tooth sensitivity. And because it’s derived from the hemp plant it contains non of the THC that brings on a “high”.

The surprising way to ERASE SIGNS OF AGING

For the millions of women suffering from sinus pressure triggered by cold, damp weather: Horseradish to the rescue! The root veggie contains a sinus-clearing chemical similar to one found in drugstore decongestants, as well as antibacterial compounds that help prevent infection. And if the bold flavor makes your nose run, that’s a good thing! It helps drain excess sinus fluid. I suggest grating 1 tsp. of fresh horseradish root and chewing it thoroughly for 1 minute. If the flavor is too strong, add the grated root to a salad dressing or sauce instead.

The simple way to SAFEGUARD VISION

A healthy macula is key to seeing vivid colors and crisp detail, but pigment in this area near the center of the eye deteriorates with age. The good news? It’s easy to restore your macula and have sharp vision for years to come! Simply boost your levels of two key antioxidants (lutein and zeaxanthin) that make up this macular pigment. Leafy greens, peas, pumpkins, and other veggies brim with both nutrients, but I suggest a supplement to get the higher amounts needed.

The smart way to KEEP BONES STRONG

While we probably relied on dairy for bone-strengthening calcium in our youth, many women over 50 become lactose sensitive. Kale to the rescue! This super veggie provides up to 64% more calcium than milk, and it’s better absorbed, thanks to kale’s rich stores of K2, a vitamin that steers calcium into bones, where it’s needed. I suggest aiming for three to four servings of kale and other green veggies per week. (Note: Talk to your doctor if you take thyroid or blood-clotting meds since K2 can impact the way they work in your body.)
