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.

Steps to Lose Weight and Keep It Off

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. Being mindful of Use a food diary your eating habits and aware of your roadblocks and excuses can help you get real about your goals. 3. Manage portion sizes. It’s easy to overeat when you’re served too much food. Smaller portions can help prevent eating too much. Learn the difference between a portion and a serving and how to keep portions reasonable. 4. Make smart choices. You don’t have to give up all your favorite foods. Learn to make smart food choices and simple substitutions instead. Discover healthy snacks and how fruits, vegetables, and whole grains help keep you fuller longer. 5. Be physically active. Physical activity is anything that gets your heart rate up, like walking. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate activity a week. Even 10-minute blocks count toward your goal.

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

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.

28 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.

WINE

Enjoying Reds in the Summer

BY GEORGE DAUPHIN

A

s summer approaches, we tend to stay away from the warmer, heavier red wines. So, how do we keep getting the same antioxidants that reds such as Cabernets and Merlots offer? Let’s first address some misinformation regarding red wine. The common wisdom is that we are supposed to drink a red wine at “room temperature.” But does mean that if you’re at a garden party in South Beach where the temperature is 90 degrees, the wine in your hand should also be 90 degrees? I hope not. The myth comes from a misun- C O U R T E S Y O F B I G S T O C K P H O T O . C O M derstanding of what the French refer to as “room temperature.” French winemakers prefer their reds at the temperature of the tasting rooms in the cellars where their wines are sampled and aged. That cellar temperature is about 55-58 degrees Fahrenheit. If you have a wine cellar in your house, keep it at that constant, and enjoy refreshing red wines all summer long. Obviously, the same holds for smaller wine coolers. Connoisseurs have a number of options, from built-in climate control units, to off-site storage services, which include Cat. 5 hurricane resistant vaults. If you are serious about your wine, such a vault will ensure the safety of your wine, although your house might be gone. When buying wine, here are some tips to getting the best quality and to keep your purchase from overheating: • It begins in the parking lot of the store where you purchase your wine. Park your car in a cool spot. Once you place the wine in your cool car, take it straight home. Don’t make stops along the way, leaving the wine to cook in an overheated car. You may consider putting a portable cooler in your trunk for just for the trip. Otherwise, the floor behind the driver’s seat may be the best spot for your purchase. • Choose your wine merchant carefully. Buy from a retailer who knows how to store wine. Make sure his wines are stored with the bottle lying down, in a cool place, away from direct sunlight, and away from the front door, where it could be affected by blasts of heat as customers walk in. • If you buy by the case, ask to see the cases before you pay for them. Make sure they were stored so that the bottles are either lying down or upside down. 40 The Presidential Magazine

• Check to see if the store is kept clean. A clean store means the management cares about how your product is handled. You should also know that a bottle of wine, whether corked or screw-capped, interacts with its environment. Bad odors, chemicals, agitation, and even sound will affect the quality of a wine. It sounds crazy to say that really bad, loud music will diminish the quality of a wine. But if you are spending over $100 for a bottle, you are entitled to consider every little thing that could affect that wine. There are some red wines that can be chilled on ice. Lambrusco, Sangria (not really a wine, but I will leave it in this category), red viño verde, and Beaujolais — to some extent — come to mind. But, in general, you do not want to ice-chill a red wine to a temperature that is lower than the aforementioned “cellar temperature.” If you see red wine being chilled at a store, it’s a sign they don’t know how to treat their wines in general. A red flag. If a guest brings a bottle of red that is warm to the touch, a 5-minute cool-off in a regular refrigerator before opening will not do any harm. A classic way to drink reds in the summer heat is to make sangria. There are various recipes. Here is a variation on the classic: • 3 cups white rum • 4 cups red wine • 2 cups orange juice • 1 cup simple syrup • 2 cups of Lemon-Lime soda (Sprite or 7-Up can be substituted) • One sliced orange, peach and other fruits to taste Combine in a pitcher. Add Berries and strawberries to taste. A sprig of mint can be used as garnish. If orange is not sweet, add simple syrup to taste. Pour over ice. Serves two.
