On the TipsOnTV Blog, Dr. Jackie shares different health tips and suggestion for promoting women’s health.
DIET AFFECTS HEALTH: Diet plays one of the biggest parts in overall health. It is a fact that peanuts are a superfood offering protein, fiber, and heart-healthy fats in every bite. Adding a serving of peanuts or peanut butter five times per week can greatly impact a woman’s health. Women who eat them regularly get more nutrients including folate, which is important for women of childbearing age, and iron which helps reduce anemia in women. Peanuts, peanut butter, and peanut powder are so versatile they can easily be included throughout the day in smoothies, salads, stir-fry, sauces, and snack mixes. For more information and recipes, visit the Peanut Butter Lovers website.
SUGGESTIONS FOR PROMOTING WOMEN’S HEALTH: Self-confidence and mental health are so important, and a smile is often the first thing people notice about people. That is why now is a great time to work on an improved smile. Spark Clear Aligners is a revolutionary doctor-directed teeth straightening option that can treat many cases, even complex ones.
