Co-enzyme Q10 (CoQ10) improves a specific cell function that can reduce headaches, according to a study reported in Neurology. About 100 milligrams a day produced those results.
Vitamin C, in sufficient doses, can help reduce belly fat. A study reported in the Journal of Public Heath Nutrition showed that women who took in less than 60 milligrams a day accumulated more midsection fat.
Calcium appears to be another fat fighter. Dieting subjects who got about 1,200 milligrams a day of the mineral showed three times the midsection fat loss as those getting the same calories but less calcium.
Vitamin K, found in broccoli and other dark greens, helps deposit calcium in bones, making them denser. If you squat heavy, eating your broccoli could help keep you from busting your back.
Wine for your liver? Isn’t alcohol supposed to damage it? Not according to a University of California, San Diego, study, which found that those who drink a glass of red or white wine a day have less liver damage than nondrinkers. But hello, moderation: The lab coats didn’t say what happens when you drink two, three or four glasses a day.
