ZINC - Without it, you couldn't taste and smell. Your immune system needs it, and it helps cuts, scrapes, and sores heal. It may help you keep your sight as you get older. While you can get zinc from plant sources like sesame and pumpkin seeds, chickpeas, lentils, and cashews, it's easier for your body to absorb it from animal foods, such as oysters, beef, crab, lobster, and pork. Do you know where your zinc level is?

TOP 10 Foods for ZINC:

  • Oysters
  • Beef
  • Veal Liver
  • Wheat Germ (toasted)
  • Pumpkin & Squash seeds
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Lamb

DOES MUSIC MAKE YOU HAPPY? It causes your brain to release dopamine Dopamine is a feel-good chemical that’s involved in pleasure. A study found that when people listened to music, their brains released more dopamine. In fact, even just thinking about listening to music caused the dopamine to start flowing. The researchers think this might explain why music -- from Beethoven’s Fifth to Adele’s "Rolling in the Deep" -- has been such a big part of human history.
