Marla Ahlgrimm | Vitamins And Women

Marla Ahlgrimm

According to Marla Ahlgrimm, women have unique nutritional needs. Ideally, these are met by food and doing activities, such as going outside to trigger vitamin D production. However, it’s important for women to know which vitamins are most important to our bodies so that we can work with our healthcare professionals to ensure a proper balance. 
 
Marla Ahlgrimm explains that there are dozens of vitamins crucial to women’s health. B vitamins, which includes thiamin, niacin, biotin, and folate, are good examples. Vitamin B1, also known as thiamine, works to produce energy and effectively metabolize fat. Niacin helps women reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases while pantothenic acid, or vitamin B5, is an important tool in a woman’s hormone-production arsenal.

Marla Ahlgrimm On The History Of The Bra

Marla Ahlgrimm

The question of who invented the bra is a difficult one to answer, says Marla Ahlgrimm. This staple wardrobe piece has been worn and some iteration since ancient times. Today, we take a quick look at the transformation of our favorite/most-hated undergarment. 
 
The corset 
 
Sometime in the 1500s, French women began wearing what we know today as the corset. Part bra, part body shaper, the corset made a woman’s waist look small and the breasts look large. For almost 400 years, women routinely wore corsets, which Marla Ahlgrimm explains did not change much through there for centuries of popularity. 
 
Split corset 
 
According to Marla Ahlgrimm, near the turn of the 19th century, a French designer named Herminie Cadolle decided to cut the corset in two. This allowed women to breathe a bit easier while supporting the breast and cinching the waist.

Marla Ahlgrimm On The Lingering Effects Of COVID

Marla Ahlgrimm

We still don’t know all there is to know about the coronavirus known as COVID-19. But, as Marla Ahlgrimm explains below, we know enough to accept that it is not always a short-term disease. There are numerous lingering side-effects that make this virus different from others in its family. 
 
According to Marla Ahlgrimm, the coronavirus leaves many long-term symptoms in a significant portion of patients. Although the vast majority recover within just a few weeks, some people experience joint pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, cough, headaches, and memory issues from months after recovery. One common issue that may last for several months is the inability to taste or smell.

Marla Ahlgrimm | Red Meat: Friend or Foe?

Marla Ahlgrimm

If you are a meat and potatoes kind of woman, you may have noticed that red meat has made a comeback over the last few years thanks to the popularity of high-protein diets. But, according to Marla Ahlgrimm, red meat may not be the best source of daily nutrition. 
 
Marla Ahlgrimm explains that most people believe that red meat simply means beef. This is a misunderstanding, however, and the World Health Organization lumps all mammal muscle meat into the red meat category. Beef, veal, goat, lamb, and pork are all considered red meat.

Marla Ahlgrimm: Sugar-Free But Too Sweet To Be Good?

Marla Ahlgrimm
Almost every woman enjoys a warm cup of coffee. And many of us choose to add sugar or sweetener to our morning cup of Joe. But, according to Marla Ahlgrimm, artificial sweeteners may not be as sweet as they seem.

Marla Ahlgrimm explains that there are five types of artificial sweetener that have been approved by the FDA. These are acesulfame, saccharin, neotame, aspartame, and sucralose. These come in many name brands, including Sweet n’ Low and Equal.

On the surface, artificial sweeteners seem like a logical move. They are non-nutritive, but a little bit goes a long way. Because of this, we can add a sweetness to our food and beverage to make them more enjoyable. Unfortunately, because we believe we are doing the right thing, our brain says it’s okay to splurge in other areas. For example, you might have a cup of coffee with Sweet n’ Low with a doughnut on the side.

Marla Ahlgrimm: Hair Loss And COVID-19

Marla Ahlgrimm
According to Marla Ahlgrimm, more and more people are noticing hair loss in 2020. Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic may be partly to blame. Does COVID cause hair loss? Not directly, but there is a correlation.

Marla Ahlgrimm explains that coronavirus-related hair loss is not triggered by the virus. Instead, it’s due to an unfortunate side-effect of stress – either physical or emotional – known as telogen effluvium. This is effectively the premature relaxation of the hair growth pattern when individual strands fall out naturally. However, as the body recovers from physical trauma, the process is hastened.
