Glow15: A Science- Based Plan to Lose Weight, Re­vi­tal­ize Your Skin, and In­vig­o­rate Your Life BY NAOMI WHITTEL ( Houghton Mif­flin Har­court, 2018)

It was over a cup of cit­rus berg­amot tea that Naomi Whittel, mother of four and CEO of Twin­lab, first learned about the lit­tle- known— but hugely pow­er­ful— science of au­tophagy, wherein cells re­move toxins, re­cy­cle parts, and re­pair their own dam­age. Au­tophagy is like a built- in foun­tain of youth buried deep within our cells. When it’s nur­tured, you thrive— and as you might imag­ine, when it’s not func­tion­ing op­ti­mally, age- re­lated prob­lems such as di­a­betes, cancer, and de­men­tia can de­velop. How can you max­i­mize this process for healthy, beau­ti­ful ag­ing? That’s ex­actly what Whittel set out to un­cover. In Glow 15, she shares re­search and ad­vice that she learned from ex­perts in the field, in­clud­ing MDs, der­ma­tol­o­gists, sleep doc­tors, nu­tri­tion­ists, and fit­ness phys­i­ol­o­gists. The book de­tails the best ways to har­ness the power of au­tophagy through diet, ex­er­cise, and more. Plus, there's a col­lec­tion of W hit te l‘s fa­vorite au­tophagy-en­hanc­ing recipes, such as" Au­tophaTea" made with cit­rus berg­amot tea, Ba­con, Spinach, and Cheese Egg Muf­fin, and Herbed Pork Tenderloin. Whittel proves that you don’t have to cut out the good stuff to glow.

Women’s Health Mat­ters: The In­flu­ence of Gen­der on Dis­ease BY DR. KAREN JENSEN, ND ( Mind Pub­lish­ing, 2017)

Did you know that most med­i­cal pro­to­cols for treat­ing women are based on clin­i­cal stud­ies done on men? Or that women fare worse than men af­ter a heart at­tack, and heart dis­ease in women re­mains un­der­diag­nosed and un­der­treated? Dr. Karen Jensen, ND, a Canada- based natur­o­pathic doc­tor who has 25 years of clin­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ence, is on a mis­sion to help women un­der­stand their unique set of health chal­lenges. This book is packed ( and we mean packed!) with an in­cred­i­ble amount of use­ful, em­pow­er­ing in­for­ma­tion. Jensen of­fers de­tailed ad­vice on what treat­ments are avail­able to you ( in­clud­ing nu­tri­ent- and herbal- based op­tions), which ones are the safest, and which are the most ef­fec­tive. There are more than 15 con­di­tions dis­cussed, in­clud­ing hor­monal bal­ance, adrenal and thy­roid health, per­i­menopause and menopause, breast dis­ease, es­tro­gen dom­i­nance, uri­nary incontinence, fer­til­ity, mood, sleep, and os­teo­poro­sis. This is a must- read for women of all ages.

Food for Life: De­li­cious & Healthy Com­fort Food from My Ta­ble to Yours! BY LAILA ALI ( St. Martin’s Press, 2018)

Four- time un­de­feated world box­ing champ Laila Ali re­tired from the ring in 2007, but she still packs a one- two punch in the kitchen. The health- minded mom and host of OWN’s Home Made Sim­ple chan­nels her culi­nary mantra—“Nutri­tion is king, but fla­vor is queen”— in the new cook­book Food for Life: De­li­cious & Healthy Com­fort Food from My Ta­ble to Yours!. Her knock­out recipes range from the hearty and all- Amer­i­can ( Very Veg­gie Soup) to the whole­somely spicy ( the bone broth- based South In­dian Co­conut Chicken Curry) to the full- on for­ti­fy­ing ( home­made ke­fir- and kale- in­fused West Coast South­ern Greens).

Food for Life fo­cuses on fruit, veg­gies, and other tried- and- true whole foods. But Ali— who has a line of sup­ple­ments com­ing in mid- 2018— doesn’t shy from toss­ing ex­tra nu­tri­ents into her clean cui­sine. “If your body can process it, you’re go­ing to get en­ergy from it,” she says. — Chris Mann
