#TipTuesday: For healthy teeth, don't brush your teeth immediately after meals and drinks, especially if they were acidic. Acidic foods — i.e. citrus fruits, sports drinks, tomatoes, soda — can soften tooth enamel. Brushing your teeth at this stage can speed up acid's effect on your enamel and erode the layer underneath, which can lead to pain and sensitivity. To prevent this from happening, wait 30 to 60 minutes before brushing.

#TipTuesday: Go green! Researchers found drinking green tea with your antibiotics helps the medication destroy harmful bacteria up to three times more effectively. The study showed that consuming green tea at the same time as taking antibiotics appeared to increase the action of the antibiotics, and reduce drug resistance in bacteria - making it easier to fight off drug-resistant bacteria, and even superbugs!

Eat your greens to stay sharp! Researchers discovered that people who eat one to two servings of leafy greens daily had the cognitive ability of a person 11 years younger than those who consumed none. Leafy greens include arugula, romaine lettuce, mesclun mix (or "spring mix"), spinach, kale, collard, turnip and mustard greens, watercress, chard, broccoli rabe and Chinese broccoli. The high vitamin K content found in these greens is credited as a way to help slow cognitive decline.

#TipTuesday: If you've been following your post-holiday diet - weigh to go! Now it's time to start tracking your progress (and make sure pesky pounds don't find their way back on). It's best to step on the scale in the morning before eating or drinking — and prior to starting your daily activities. For the most reliable number, be sure to check your poundage at a consistent time, whether daily or weekly.

#TipTuesday: Soak up some sun! Our bodies use sunlight to help the skin produce the vitamin D it needs to build bones, suppress inflammation, strengthen the immune system and protect against cancer (including skin cancer). During winter - or if you live in an area that gets minimal sun exposure - you may need to pay closer attention to your vitamin D levels. You'll want your level to be in the 50-80 ng/ml range.

#TipTuesday: Add healthy fats to every snack or meal - it could reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes! When your meal contains protein, fiber, and even fat, your body's insulin response slows, stabilizing your blood sugar. One study of more than 32,000 women, showed that the ladies whose diets had the highest glycemic load (a measure of how quickly a food spikes your blood sugar) had more than twice the risk of heart disease, compared with those whose diets had the lowest load.

#TipTuesday: Crank down the volume. MP3 players can create sound up to 120 decibels -- equivalent to the sound of an ambulance siren and loud enough to cause hearing loss over time. Try following the 60/60 rule: Keep volume coming through your headphones to no more than 60% of the max, for no more than 60 minutes a day.
