Life Enhancing, Sexual Wellness Benefits of Beets

Beauty | Body | Culture Beet juice vs the pill. Once again, Mother Nature sends a powerful message about the efficacy of natural foods. Patients who were given a 250ml glass of beetroot juice a day experienced a reduction in blood pressure comparable to those who took nitrate tablets.

The benefit is driven by nitrates producing a gas known as nitric oxide in the blood vessels and arteries and lowers blood pressure. The effective and immediate reduction in blood pressure has long-term benefits on cardiovascular health, potentially impacting mortality from heart health and strokes.

The Ralph Lauren Brand Message Needs a New Set of Smart Sensuality Values

Updated June 26, 2010. We don’t know if the latest Ralph Lauren controversy is a big deal or a baby one. To us, it’s no Photoshop disaster because Tao Okamoto is very thin model as revealed in her photos , including a new one of her topless in a fashion shoot.

This is the vision of womanhood that Ralph Lauren celebrates. With Gwyneth Paltrow announcing that at age 37, she has osteoporosis, we say that women consumers must stop the madness. The Ralph Lauren team could care less about women’s health, except for their work raising money for breast cancer. 

Nordstrom should also become part of this conversation, because they’re not a global brand, appealing to Asian women who have been dieting themselves down to nothingness. This submissive attitude is part of their Japanese mindset, a condition that Ralph Lauren is marketing into, but one that doesn’t involve Nordstrom. 

Ralph Lauren now prefers women with such low body weight, they are candidates for anorexia. We hoped that last fall’s big debate on healthy bodies might dissuade Ralph Lauren from pursuing a course of presenting beauty images of women of such low body weight that they are candidates for infertility or osteoporosis. 

Clearly, women have failed in this dialogue. Therefore, we seriously recommend that women vote with their wallets. This is the foundation of American capitalism and a set of values held close to Ralph Lauren’s heart. 

All week our article on Ralph Lauren’s Ubah Hassan has been our #2 read. As business people, we don’t wish PR brand blowups on anyone but it seems that America’s greatest brand is handing women an aspirational image that’s bad for our health.

In an act of self-preservation, we rebel. When pushed we respond ferociously. We ask Ralph Lauren just what kind of game he’s playing with women’s lives and fertility?

Always Dieting Gwyneth Paltrow, 37, Reveals Osteoporosis

Weeks after saying that she’s never felt better, Gwyneth Paltrow, 37, reveals that she’s in the early stages of osteoporosis or brittle bone disease, a serious health complication for older, post-menopausal women. 

Osteoporosis is frequently associated with low bodyweight and unhealthy BMI’s. Paltrow’s health condition was diagnosed in a bone scan after she suffered a leg fracture.  In her internet newsletter Goop, she said: ‘My doctors tested my vitamin D levels, which turned out to be the lowest thing they had ever seen (not a good thing).’

Paltrow, who lives in north London with her Coldplay star husband Chris Martin, follows a macrobiotic diet that concentrates on vegetables, grains, soup and fish. 

Gwyneth is also a devotee of Tracy Anderson, who has also trained Madonna.

Ralph Lauren | Nordstrom Photoshop Waist Controversy

Thanks to Tavi’s tip at Jezebel, the world is buzzing over yet another Ralph Lauren photoshop disaster, this time involving Nordstrom’s polo shirt photos of Tao Okamoto. 

Nordstrom says “leave us out of the discussion”, offering up a before and after Photoshop photos of Tao Okamoto.  Beyond removing Tao’s breast nipple and a few wrinkles from the photo, Nordstrom says they didn’t slim the waist. Honestly, we don’t see that this is another Ralph Lauren Photoshop disaster.

Our thoughts:

1) Like Ralph Lauren’s model Ubah Hassan, Tao Okamoto is very thin. Her stats are listed as size 4, but this photo of her suggests that she’s thinner. If this body is a size 4 — fat by fashion industry standards — we’re out of words.

Michelle Obama | Green Energy In High Gear!

First Lady Michelle Obama was in high gear yesterday, joined by a host of star athletes, including gymnast Dominique Dawes, figure skater Michelle Kwan and NASCAR driver Carl Edwards for a relaunch of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition.

Besides her awesome jump roping exercises, FLOTUS showed off her toned, nicely muscular body as an inspiration for all Americans to get moving.

As America sinks deeper into obesity and all the problems that accompany it, the First Lady is leading the rally for Americans to redefine self-love away from biggie-sizing everything in sight, except our exercise routines. 

Michelle Obama’s focus is children, direly threatened by the nation’s obesity epidemic. Anne of Carversville supports kids everywhere, but even moreso their parents. We join the First Lady in wanting to see a whole lot more self-love expressed in America, by getting our human-pedaled wheels in motion.

Now THAT is green energy at its best. 

Our top priority is talking up the message that healthy food is sexy food.

Every Woman Should Own Jordan Matter's "Uncovered"

Breasts Front and Center in Body Modesty Debate

Our embrace of our breasts comes in the midst of an international backlash against women’s rights and progress. Men sense the coming changes to their patriarchal reign over women’s lives, and so they humiliate them.

Tomorrow is “Eve Teasing Protection Day” in Bangladesh. It comes as 14 young women have committed suicide in Bangladesh this year over public humiliation.  A year later my Sudanese friend Lubna Ahmed Hussein now lives in Paris and speaks out on human rights, especially for women, who continue to be flogged in Sudan.

As our aggressive stance hardens in support of women everywhere, we celebrate the men who are on our side. Jordan Matter has one of the modern, ambiguous names that doesn’t connote gender. Photographer Jordan Matter is a guy, one of many devoted to female-centric values in our world. 

NBC’s Meridith Vieira interview and video art segment on Jordan Matter’s book “Uncovered” is a must see video feature.

Meredith Viera’s “Uncovered” interview adds richly to our growing conversation around the global need for many men to control a woman’s body. How? By flogging away her sense of self and her dignity, leaving her embarassed, with the equivalent of a scarlet letter around her neck.
