Let Me Introduce You To Some New Little Friends, Courtesy Of Dr. Oz....

Although I never turn on the TV during the day, I've recently started watching The Dr. Oz Show. Now, some people (as in Mr. Snooty) will say that it's just more TV Land hype, but this man is changing our world with a lot of the information he feeds us about everything from aging to losing weight, lowering blood pressure, lowering cholesterol, slowing down the process of aging, plus a world of other information. It seems as if I learn something new every time I watch his show. He never seems to endorse any particular product, just the ingredients that are beneficial to us, which to me, makes him more credible than most. Besides, most of his suggestions are ingredients from the earth, which I'm all for.

Yesterday Dr. Oz informed viewers that the strongest antioxidant there is comes from the sour cherry. Yes, that's right. If you drink one 6 oz. glass of tart cherry juice every evening with dinner, you'll be getting the equivalent of eating as many daily requirements of fruits and veggies (but it must be with dinner & at least 3 hours before you retire to bed for the max benefits). 

Another light bulb over the noggin was an ingredient called DMAE which (along with a healthy diet & exercise) not only prevents wrinkles but makes them disappear within about a 35 day period. 

Another wonder is watercress, which has proven to protect your skin from cancer. For women, just three 1/2 cup servings a week can also help prevent skin cancer AND breast cancer. Big. Time. 

If you ever find yourself doubting Dr. Oz you can always do a google search on the ingredient then hit the news link, which will tell you everything you need to know plus whatever controversy there is over said ingredient. What could be more simple?

It turns out that we really are what we eat.

Also, you can always DVR Dr. Oz or set your recorder if you aren't home to see it live. This TV show is a treasure trove of health information, so do yourself a favor and tune in to Dr. Oz, five days a week on NBC (and no, I'm certainly not being paid for this endorsement, although I probably should be).

I think I might have a celebrity crush on Dr. Oz....

Don't watch his show but have goggled him. I do believe in the natural being better for us. Wish I would follow this advice better! I have awarded you with the "Stylish Award". Your different styles always informs me without me having to do all the research work. Thanks! Hope you don't mind

I am a huge fan of Dr. Oz, huge. He came to Houston last year, got a massive group of medical professionals together and held an clinic for people who were uninsured.

Thanks for the heads up on the cherry juice and other goodies. I didn't know about them. :)

Ms. Snooty - I want to hear back on you in 35 days. Want a photo update on the DMEA situation. :)

Dr Oz is Oz-some. Daughter brought him to my attention. She's addicted. He always has great advice.

Oh, and no, I didn't save the camera. This is the second camera I have ruined in as many years. I just bought a new one. Hopefully this one will make it more than one year, if I can figure out how to use it. ;)

I love him, record him daily.

Okay, here's a vanity question. Do you think he dies his hair?

Snooty Primadona said...

BBoomer: I know, right? I have a huge crush on him at the moment...

Flea: You know I never follow through on my threats, lol. I have to find something that it's in first & it's been too cold to go out since I'm no longer hot flashing...

BJ & Janie: I know. He's an amazing man & I feel like I should be recording every show! I like the doctors okay too but Dr. Oz has a certain charisma...

Mental P Mama said...

Been a fan for years. He has actually treated some friends of mine!

I love hearing about any natural remedies! I recently heard about the benefits of honey and cinnamon used together. I've been making a honey and cinnamon tea everyday, it tastes good and I'm getting healthier! Thanks for the info!

Okay I need that cream. My eyes are dark, but the lines needed to be plumped out. Where can I get it?

Heather Jones said...

BTW, did he say anything about adding vodka to tart cherry juice? Sounds yummy to me. :o)

Not a daytime TV watcher either, but I love Dr. Oz. I used to catch him on Oprah.

I'm currently using only Castor Oil on my face and after 5 1/2 months...it looks much better.

A landscaper just told me to plant watercress along the creek bed to stabilize the erosion. If I do, I can then just go out and eat it and help myself out in the process!!
