End of Year Stress It’s hard to believe that yet another year is coming to a close. And not just the year, but the decade! So much has changed over the past 10 years. Just think about the advancements in supplements in that time—CBD had yet to become a household name, collagen was not nearly as popular as it is today, and products with non-GMO ingredients were relatively rare. And these are just the tip of the iceberg. No matter how beneficial they might be, changes can create inner turmoil and stress—whether that’s losing your job, feeling frustrated by new technology, or even starting a different way of eating. Pile on the typical holiday stress, and you’re sure to hit a breaking point. We have several articles in this issue to help you…

jump around

Plenty of Benefits Even if you’re doing regular cardio workouts, jumping rope is a different way of moving. In addition to working the heart and lungs, it: * Increases elasticity in the tendons and muscles in the lower leg.* Improves balance, helps prevent falls, and improves bone density.* Increases grip and wrist strength, and works the shoulders.* Helps to stabilize knee muscles and joints.* Works the upper leg and hips, especially when landing on one foot.* Is mentally engaging, which helps to reduce stress and may help ward off dementia. Where to Start Pete McCall, a leading San Diego-based fitness trainer, educator, and spokesperson for the American Council on Exercise, recommends first jumping without a rope for 20–30 seconds, to make sure weight is distributed correctly. Use the balls of your feet, not the…

New in health! What You Must Know About Dry Eye by Jeffrey Anshel, OD Scratchiness, burning, blurred vision, difficulty driving at night, eye fatigue, eye pain—these are all symptoms of dry eye.

think for cognition phosphatidylcholine

Eating foods high in phosphatidylcholine is associated with a reduced risk of dementia and enhanced cognitive performance, according to a study from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Researchers analyzed approximately 2,500 Finnish men between ages 42 and 60 for their dietary and lifestyle habits. The risk of dementia was 28% lower in men with the highest intake of dietary phosphatidylcholine compared to those with the lowest intake. Men who consumed the most phosphatidylcholine-rich foods also excelled in tests measuring memory and linguistic abilities. Phosphatidylcholine is a fatty substance that contains the B vitamin choline. In addition to eggs and meat (the two richest sources), soy, sunflower, and wheat contain the nutrient. You can also take phosphatidylcholine and choline in supplement form. INFOGRAPHIC: ART BY STEPHEN DEBONREPOS; SOURCE: THE ESSENTIAL OIL…
