The surprising secret to HEALTHY TEETH AND GUMS

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

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

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.)

The natural way to KNOCK OUT GOUT

The natural way to KNOCK OUT GOUT

Declining estrogen levels during and after menopause increase the risk of gout. A type of arthritis, gout occurs when uric acid builds up and forms sharp crystals in joints, often in the big toe. Thankfully, there’s a natural fix to sidestep painful flares: tart cherries! They’re rich in nutrients that block crystal formation cutting gout risk by 35%. Drinking tart cherry juice works, but to limit sugar, I suggest a supplement. Take 2 tablets three times daily during an attack, and 1 tablet three times daily for maintenance.

The pantry staple that HEALS WOUNDS

The pantry staple that HEALS WOUNDS

The next time you accidentally brush up against a hot skillet or nick your finger chopping veggies, reach for a jar of honey. When applied topically, honey creates a protective barrier for minor burns and cuts, plus its antibacterial compounds kill germs that can cause infection. What’s more, honey’s antioxidants help stop damaging inflammation that slows healing. Simply apply a coat of honey to your wound, then cover it with a bandage. Tip: Opt for raw honey since processing destroys the sweetener’s protective compounds.

The kitchen cure that SLASHES PAIN

The kitchen cure that SLASHES PAIN

Taming arthritis pain is as easy as opening your fridge – especially if you love parsley! USDA researchers say just 1/4 cup of the fresh herb contains 300% of the RDA of vitamin K, plus a rich supply of myristicin and eugenol. That’s key since these three nutrients are powerful anti-inflammatories that tamp down joint pain. For natural relief, steep 1 packed cup of washed parsley in 1 quart of boiling water for 15 to 20 minutes, then strain and refrigerate the liquid. Drink 1/2 cup before breakfast, dinner and anytime your pain is severe.

The simple way to END FATIGUE & FOG

The simple way to END FATIGUE & FOG

If you’re feeling tired and scattered despite fall’s fresh air, there’s a reason for that: Seven in 10 women have an overgrowth of candida, a type of yeast that lives in our body and feeds on sugar in our diet. And high candida levels trigger a sensitivity to mold, which thrives in piles of leaves and garden much. This triggers tiredness, forgetfulness, and achy joints. The easy fix? Adding a spoonful of coconut oil to your daily diet. Investigators at the University of Southern California found that the oil’s monolaurin cuts candida growth in half.

The drug-free way to END BACK PAIN

The drug-free way to END BACK PAIN

No need to reach for painkillers the next time a backache flares. Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh found that when people with back, neck or other joint pain took 1200 mg. of fish oil daily for 75 days, 60% of them reported significant pain relief – enough to decrease or discontinue their use of pain medications. That’s because the fish oil’s omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) block pain-triggering inflammation. Note: Talk to your doctor before supplementing if you take warfarin or other blood thinners.
