There are always new things being discovered to keep us looking and feeling great. Here are some new ways to support good health and beautiful skin, hair, and m0re for 2021.
Fatty Acids for Overall Health
Fatty acids have long been known to do good things for the human body.
Fatty acids are categorized based upon the number of hydrogen bonds and carbon atoms they contain; essential fatty acids are categorized in that group ("essential") because the human body doesn't create them on it's own, and they must come from your diet. The essential fatty acids that we have known about for some time are: linoleic acid, or omega-6 fatty acid, and alpha-linolenic acid, or omega-3 fatty acid.
Essential fatty acids support and benefit the body in the following ways:
- Supporting healthy neurological function, including improved cognition
- Supporting cardiovascular health, including (but not limited to) healthy blood pressure, reduction of the buildup of arterial plaque, reduction of both total cholesterol levels, as well as LDL cholesterol levels.
- In some studies have had a positive effect on mental health, anxiety, depression and bi-polar disorder.
- Has a positive effect on inflammatory disease processes, such as arthritis, asthma, and IBD.
Recently, a new essential fatty acid was discovered, and its positive effects are still being discovered. The newly discovered essential fatty acid, called C15:0, is the first fatty acid to be discovered in almost a century. So far, there is already evidence to show that C15:0 supports general health and cellular resilience to aging, free radicals, and other problematic and damaging issues at the cellular level. Fatty15 is a supplement that provides dietary C15:0 to the body, so that you can benefit from it without having to search out specific foods to provide significant amounts of it.

The upkeep of normal flora of the body is becoming better understood by a greater number of people; many make it part of their lifestyle to look for probiotic and even prebiotic-rich foods and supplements to keep them looking and feeling healthy.
There are so many guides to eating and drinking the right things to manage a healthy environment for flora (prebiotics) and for other foods and supplements to help keep a healthy level of normal flora (probiotics) that it is easier than ever to maintain healthy flora in the gut (This is a male issue, too!) the vagina, and elsewhere where specific bacteria live to keep our body functioning the way it is meant to.
Although the vagina is clearly not the only organ greatly affected by issues like pH and flora, it is an organ that can have the most immediate negative effects by poor maintenance and skewed levels of flora or unhealthy pH. A new product that is keeping women feeling great is boric acid suppositories. These vaginal suppositories were created to combat bacterial issues, the unpleasant or "fishy" smell after your menstrual flow or sex, an overabundance of yeast, and other common maladies that women

If you are looking to find liposuction in Miami, or any other major city in the US, ask your doctor about the newest non-invasive procedure available for fat reduction.
The use of radio-frequency to achieve the breakdown of fat deposits and stimulate underlying muscles has become an effective reality. Since it is a non-surgical procedure, it is far less risky than traditional liposuction techniques; the reduction of fat cells it causes in one month's time is equivalent to what other comparable lipo procedures need 90 days to get the same results from. This new form of radio-frequency lipo sculpting both achieves fat cell removal, as well as brilliant skin-tightening effects that have had lots of positive reviews, nationwide.

The GlucoTrack monitor is completely non-invasive, and has received approvals for use in Europe andSouth Korea for adults 18 and over with type 2 diabetes and prediabetes.
