The November-to-December rush to meet deadlines, get gifts, and make your rounds at holiday parties always leaves you feeling spent. But there actually is a way to do all of that and still run into January feeling your best (because #goals). The trick could be doing a quickie food cleanse (you know, a cleanse where you still get to eat). When women see health coach Maria Marlowe for symptoms like fatigue and brain fog, she often suggests a food reboot. Why? “A short-term cleanse can offer big results in terms of how you feel in just a few days or weeks,” says Marlowe, […]

This would include everything from the calcium and multivitamins at your local drug store, to those questionable weight loss and virility supplements pitched on late night cable TV stations. According to the FDA, “Three out of every four American consumers take a dietary supplement on a regular basis. For older Americans, the rate rises to four in five. And one in three children take supplements.” All of these are currently regulated under guidelines known as DSHEA—the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act. According […]
Jan. 2 (UPI) — While the vast majority of over-the-counter nutritional and herbal supplements are safe — unless they are consumed in large quantities — not all of them deliver on their promised benefits.
