Is your good diet wanting? It is if you're tossing back a few pharmaceuticals with your morning joe and Downward Facing Dog. .So what’s the take-away about putting back? At a minimum, you need at a respectable multivitamin --preferably one formulated for your sex and age that carries the USP (United States Pharmacopeia) crest. Plus some additional ascorbic acid (vitamin C), preferably in the optimally absorbed Ester-C form which will help keep your immune system humming along. One or two grams daily taken in spaced doses couldn’t hurt (and if you don’t need it, it’s water soluble and will simply be voided). A bone-support supplement that contains calcium, vitamin D, and perhaps helper- bone health trace minerals such as boron, silica and vitamin are good add-ons for women. Wash it all down with a cup of green tea and you’re good to flow! Go to www.invitehealth/drug-induced-nutrient-depletion.html for more details.

Get off your high horse and out of those high heels, ladies. High heels cause 200% more stress to your knees than sneakers. Ballet flats are no better. And you are three times less stable in flip flops than in low heels. Further up the body, you can reduce the appearance of wrinkles by using a bedside humidifier that provides 70% relative humidity. And a fruity way to protect your GI tract? Couple that wine or beer with a few vitaminwberries, say new studies from the University of Bar C Barcelona.
