WHY YOU CAN'T SKIP MAGNESIUM IF YOU'RE TAKING VITAMIN D If you find yourself wondering, "Am I getting enough vitamin D?" you should also ask yourself another question: "Am I getting enough magnesium?" In a new review article, researchers stress the importance of getting enough of this mineral, which aids in the metabolism, or "activation," of vitamin D so it can be used by the body. "People are taking vitamin D supplements but don't realize how it gets metabolized," study co-author Mohammed Razzaque, a professor of pathology at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Pennsylvania, said in a statement. "Without magnesium, vitamin D is not really useful." Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body after calcium, potassium and sodium, the researchers said. The element activates hundreds of enzymes that are involved in important biological reactions, including the enzymes that play a role in vitamin D metabolism, the review said. But many people don't get enough magnesium — a national survey from 2005-2006 found that about half of all Americans didn't consume enough magnesium, the review said. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the recommended amount of magnesium is 400-420 milligrams per day for men, and 310-320 mg a day for women. Previous research has suggested that consuming magnesium can reduce the risk of vitamin D deficiency: A 2013 study found that people who consumed relatively high levels of magnesium were less likely to have low vitamin D levels, compared with people who didn't get enough magnesium. 18 The Presidential Magazine

It may be that people who get enough magnesium require less vitamin D supplementation to reach adequate vitamin D levels, than they would if they didn't get enough magnesium, Razzaque said. "By consuming an optimal amount of magnesium, one may be able to lower the risks of vitamin D deficiency," he said. Some studies have also found that people with higher magnesium intakes have higher bone mineral density, and a lower risk of osteoporosis, compared with people with lower intakes of magnesium, the researchers said. However, more research is needed to see whether taking magnesium supplements can prevent or treat osteoporosis, according to the NIH. Foods high in magnesium include almonds, bananas, beans, broccoli, brown rice, cashews, egg yolk, fish oil, flaxseed, green vegetables, milk, mushrooms, other nuts, oatmeal, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, soybeans, sunflower seeds, sweet corn, tofu and whole grains, according to the review. It's important to note that if people take magnesium supplements, they should not consume more than the recommended amount, which is 350 milligrams per day for adults. (This limit is for supplements only. It may be lower than the recommended daily amount because the latter includes magnesium from food as well as supplements.) Too much mag nesium from dietary supplements can cause diarrhea, nausea and abdominal cramping; and extremely high intakes can lead to irregular heartbeat and cardiac arrest, according to the NIH.

Tired of yo-yo diets? Set yourself up for success with the American Heart Association's tried and true tips on maintaining a healthy weight. To lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you eat. Learning to balance healthy eating and physical activity can help you lose weight more easily and keep it off.

Set yourself up for success with short-term goals, like “I will make lifestyle changes which will help me lose (and keep off) 3-5% of my body weight.” Short-term goals can seem more achievable and keep you on track toward your long-term goals. 2. Understand how much and why you eat. dia or tracking app to understand what, how much, and when you’re eating.

The new S-Class celebrates its world premiere with extensive innovations at the Auto Shanghai Automotive benchmark in eďŹƒciency and comfort

W

hat do Kourtney Kar dashian, Natalie Portman, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Daniel Craig, Jake Gyllenhall, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore have in common? Besides being extremely famous, they’re all fans of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the famed German automaker’s flagship to which all other luxury sedans aspire. And they’re far from the only ones; the S-Class was the best-selling luxury sedan in the world in 2016. Paul Altieri, founder of online luxury watch boutique Bob’s Watches and one of the world’ top Rolex collectors, tells JustLuxe that when it comes to luxury cars “there is simply no substitute”. Altieri, who has owned several S-Class models over the years, says it “represents the pinnacle of automotive excellence, the perfect package of power, luxury and style. It’s perfectly discreet but utterly elegant. Mercedes-Benz cars are known for the finest technology, comfort, performance and reliability in the industry, and the S-Class is the best of the best. I’ve driven other high-end cars but I always return to the S-Class, nothing else truly compares. And the valets at the country club always give me the best spot.” Expect even more preferential treatment if you get your hands new S-Class, which Mercedes has updaton n ed extensively for 2018.

This is no mere facelift. In addition to new styling that gives the S-Class an even more gracefully imposing presence, it is now also above and beyond the competition when it comes to state-of-the-art tech. The new S-Class models advance even further towards autonomous driving but don’t forfeit the thrill of driving a powerful luxury sedan. That’s in addition to a new generation of Mercedes-Benz engines, all-new dual 12.3” high-resolution dashboard displays with a single bonded glass panel, exclusive new trim and upholstery offerings, and climate control, ambient lighting, massage and “fragrancing” functions that harmonize to create the perfect driving environment. S-Class models start at $89,900 and go up to $229,500, and the range offers several options including the S460, S560, Mercedes-AMG S63 Sedan, Mercedes-AMG S65 and even a mogul-friendly Mercedes-Maybach S560. Power options kick off with the S450 4MATIC’s 3.0L V6 biturbo good for 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, while the 4.0L V8 in the S560 and Mercedes-Maybach S560 4MATIC has 463 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. At the top of the class is the S65’s 4.0L V8 biturbo knocking out an eye-popping 603 hp, with the kind of handcrafted attention to detail you’d expect of a $230K car.

DRIVE LIKE AN A-LISTER IN THE The first clue that the S-Class has been amped up is a new grille, and Mercedes enthusiasts will now be able to tell exactly what model they’re seeing by its configuration: six and eight-cylinder cars sport three twin louvers as well as vertical strips with a high-gloss black finish; “lower” classes have fewer louvers. also new are the LED taillamp designed to be reminiscent of “crystal jewels,” a redesigned sporty front bumper with pronounced air intakes, a redesigned lower bumper section with integrated tailpipe trim spanning the entire width of the vehicle. While the exterior features are eye-catching, the most impressive element of the new S-Class are the dual high-resolution displays which share a single glass cover for a wide-screen cockpit effect that is user friendly, cool and futuristic. Three different display styles – Classic, Sport and Progressive – transform the driving experience at the touch of a button. In fact, the new Touch Control Buttons on the steering wheel are made to interact like the screen of a smartphone, allowing you to swipe to control the entire multimedia system without taking your hands off the wheel.

30 The Presidential Magazine

Mercedes of course already had a lock on beautifully finished wood and leather, but the new S-Class introduces two new natural grain ash wood trim specs and a new range of brown hues with three new two-tone combinations: Silk Beige/Deep-Sea Blue, Magma Grey/Espresso Brown and Mahogany/Silk Beige. Among all the features of the new S-Class which we enjoyed on our drive from Greenwich, Connecticut up to Kennebunkport, Maine, the most revolutionary was the Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC and Active Steering Assist systems controlled via steering wheel-mounted buttons. The systems allow for semi-autonomous driving with the ability to keep a safe distance from other cars, turn itself on curves and even change lanes. Speed is adjusted automatically ahead of curves or intersections, and the car even makes use of radar systems and map and navigation data to “calculate driving behavior” and keep everything smooth, certain, and perfectly balanced, allowing you to relax and revel in the masterful expression of what a luxury sedan should be.

Liquid Gold: The World’s Most Expensive Cocktail Some champagne bottles come at a painful price tag: the 2013 Armand de Brignac

Rose 30-Litre Midas that sells at $275,000, the 1959 Dom Perignon at $42,350 and the 1841 Veuve Clicquot at $34,000, just to name a few. While some are simply expensive because of the signature logos handcrafted in 18-carat gold or the 19-carat flawless deepcut white diamonds fitted prominently on the bottles. Others have a lot to do with the price tags because of the taste of sparkly diamonds. There aren’t many people, even if they had all the wealth in the world, who would spend over £7,000 in one sitting, let alone on one shot. But this Chinese businessman Jason Wong did in Hong Kong. He drank the most expensive shot in the world and “it wasn’t a drunken mistake”.

That said, would you pay £50,000 for a truly expensive cocktail? This margarita (pictured left) perhaps is one of London’s most expensive drink, topped with lashings of gold. You can only buy this margarita at Cantina Laredo, a Mexican restaurant nestled in Covent Garden, in London. So, what’s in this pricey and sumptuous drink? Other than the exceptional ingredients put together in this cocktail, it is made up of Jose Cuervo Platino, and the 1800 Colección tequila that sells for around £2,000 per bottle, a fusion of white pineapple juice and limequats and topped with the Australian finger lime with “caviar-like” appearance. The margarita lives up to its name as it is served with a pineapple flower and a diamond.
