Health Tip 1. Chew 30+ times before swallowing your food
When you chew, your body releases digestive enzymes helping to break down your food for better absorption.

• Feeling fuller from meals
• Absorbing more nutrients
• Better digestion and gut health
• Improved teeth health

Health Tip 4. Work out in the morning for better sleep
A recent study done by Appalachian State University had participants exercise at 7am, 1pm, or 7pm 3 days per week.
They found that those working out at 7am had consistently better sleep and blood pressure.
So try working out in the am if you struggle getting in those precious zzzzz’s.
Health Tip 5. Veggies Make You Sexier
The University of St. Andrews found that when consuming yellow-red pigments found in veggies, subjects became more attractive to the opposite sex.
When placed in side by side comparisons, people were rated Universally more attractive the more (cah-roh-ten-oids) they ate and were even more attractive than those with fake tans….
