Dr Oz Best & Worst: July 18 2011
Dr Oz re-aired his Best & Worst of 2010 show on July 18 2011. This show included the following segments: the Best & Worst Weight Loss Tips, the Best & Worst Hot Flashes & Constipation Tips, the Best & Worst Ways to Sleep Well, the Best & Worst Herbal Supplements, and the Best & Worst Restaurant Foods.
Dr Oz: Inca Peanuts
Doctor Oz’s show, as always, was packed full of tips for everything from losing weight to not wasting money at the drugstore. For example, the worst diet pills are Ephedrine, while Dr Oz’s favorite diet pill is Glucomannan. Trade in your afternoon snack of granola bars, which tend to have tons of sugar, for some Inca Peanuts or Sacha Inchi Nuts. Dr Oz said that Inca Peanuts are rich in omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin E, which help to prevent Heart Disease. Plus, Inca Peanuts are a fabulous source of fiber (two times the amount found in walnuts!). And if you are looking to boost your metabolism, start using more of the cayenne pepper in your spice cabinet.
Dr Oz: Sage Extract Pills
Dr Oz was joined by Suzy Cohen, author of Diabetes Without Drugs, to discuss some of the best and worst things that you can buy at the drugstore for common aches and pains. If you have muscle pain, skip the menthol-based creams and instead try a heating pad. If you are suffering from hot flashes, try Sage Extract Pills instead of Evening Primrose Oil which has no scientific proof of working. What about for chest congestion? Dr Oz said to use Cough Expectorant rather than Cough Suppressant, which prevents you from coughing up the phlegm. And my favorite drugstore tip of all – if you are constipated, try probiotic supplements! Ever since I started taking probiotics, I am a total convert. I have never been this regular or felt this great!
Dr Oz Supplements
Among Dr Oz’s favorite Herbal Supplements were things to treat migraines and arthritis. Feverfew is Doctor Oz’s go-to herbal supplement suggestion for migraines. Chondroitin helps to minimize Arthritis pain. Korean Red Ginseng can help boost the love in your life. And Astragalus has anti-viral characteristics that increase your immunity.
