Look Younger in 2 Days with this Quick, Easy and Inexpensive Fix

The other day I had lunch with an older friend of mine.  She is mid-fifties – vivacious and animated – but I’ll be damned if she didn’t suddenly look much younger to me.  I’d never seen her looking that good.  A life-time of sun, cigarettes and cocktails had taken their toll.  I mused it must be her energy and lithe, athletic figure which made her seem so – effervescent.  But she had always been slim and vivacious.  Then, it struck me.  It was her teeth!  They were a sparkling white.  Cautiously, I inquired.  Readily, she confirmed my suspicions.  But what really surprised me was how she’d polished ‘em up.  She claimed it cost her only 5 CHF ($5.59).

Getting your teeth whitened in NYC is expensive.  Even if you had the customized tooth tray made by your dentist (like me) the whitener is pricey.  And tooth whitening boutiques are usually around $500 a pop.  Now, put yourself in Geneva, Switzerland and multiply any service you get in NYC by three and you have the Swiss price – I’m not kidding.

Magnesium – Make Sure it is in Your Diet or Else you will –

One of the magical vitamins I have been taking for years is magnesium glycinate.  My motivation was anti-aging but, the below article by Dr. Mercola will explain why magnesium is important for SO MANY other reasons.

Dr. Mercola

You don’t hear much about magnesium, yet an estimated 80 percent of Americans are deficient in this important mineral and the health consequences of deficiency are significant. One reason could be because magnesium, like vitamin D, serves so many functions it’s hard to corral.

Few nutrients possess the remarkable and diverse benefits of magnesium. It is the fourth most abundant mineral in cells after calcium, phosphorus and potassium. Magnesium is found in our bones, muscles, blood, and other tissues. It is needed by the body for energy production, fat and protein synthesis, muscle relaxation, nervous system function and calcium metabolism.

According to US Department of Agriculture data, two out of every three Americans don’t meet average daily intake requirements for magnesium, which are 300 milligrams (mg) to 420 mg daily for adults. In addition, many people have a magnesium deficiency due to stress, genetics or a medication, such as a diuretic (usually taken to control blood pressure). As a consequence, these people face an increased risk for health problems. Maintaining adequate levels of magnesium can help reduce muscle cramps, stabilize blood sugar, lower the risk for heart disease, ease migraine headaches, strengthen bones and slow the aging process.

9 Reasons to Indulge in as Much Sex as Possible (with a supportive and loving person!)

  1.      It gets your heart pumpin’ blood flowin’ and nitric oxide movin’

When you are doing anything that feels good, like healthy exercise or having an orgasm, your Nitric Oxide levels rise and blood circulation is increased. More than that, Nitric Oxide is the main neurotransmitter – the one that regulates all the other neurotransmitters. And because it’s a gas, it goes through the body instantly. So high Nitric Oxide levels, let’s say from clitoral stimulation, will instantly change the neurotransmitter levels of the brain and balance them out. As your biochemistry changes, inflammation decreases, and chances of heart disease lessens, and the adrenals improve. Continue reading
