Sex Ed (October 2010)
Instead of toiling with ancient recipes to ward off the common cold, heat up your sex life for an extra boost of immunity. A recent study found that women who reported getting down and dirty at least 1-2 times a week had higher levels of the antibody immunoglobulin A, a defender against the common cold. Bonus: Spending time with loved ones and even pets has a similar antioxidant-boosting effect.
NLT: Go ahead, take the lead and don’t be shy – your health may depend on it! If your partner wonders what’s up, tell ‘em your doc insisted (although we doubt you’ll hear many complaints…).
