4 Quick Ways to Boost Your Health

Hitting the gym six days a week isn’t the only way to boost your health. Little lifestyle changes can help as well.

Eat Yogourt

People who regularly eat foods containing lactic acid (eg. yogourt) are at a lower risk of gum disease, which is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. It’s down to the lactobacilli, which control the overgrowth of harmful bacteria in the mouth.

Cut Down on Energy Drinks

A study by the University of Tennessee found that energy drinks had the greatest potential for eroding tooth enamel.

Chill Out

Unmanaged anger can spike blood pressure and releases stress hormones, which can lead to heart disease and depression.

Eat Whole Grains

Researchers at Pennsylvania State University found that obese adults who ate whole grains shed more abdominal fat than those who ate refined grains. Shifting abdominal fat is key for staying healthy: people with more are three times more likely to develop dementia and are also at a higher risk of diabetes.
