Women's Health

Drinking water. Exercising. Taking vitamins. When you stop to think about what's good for your health, these are probably the type of things that immediately come to mind. But what I'm about to share with you are some "random" things that are just as good; things that you've probably never even considered to be physically beneficial but absolutely are.

Some are fun. Some are odd. One in particular is a little gross to think about but you'll still be glad to know about it. Are you ready to learn some health-related trivia that you probably wouldn't hear anywhere other than on an episode of Jeopardy? Check them out below.

8 Surprising Things That Are Good For Your Health

I don't know one person on the planet that doesn't like ice cream. But for those of you who may be like me and currently have 3-5 different pints in your freezer, there's nothing to be ashamed of. So long as you consume ice cream in moderation (of course), there are several reasons why it's actually pretty good for you.

Ice cream is a fermented dairy product, which makes it good for your immune system. Plus, it's high in calcium; that makes it not only good for your bones but it can even help you to lose weight. Since it also raises dopamine levels in the body, ice cream can give you more brain power too.

And get this — if you're currently trying to get pregnant, ice cream can make it easier. One study revealed that women who consumed at least one serving of high-fat dairy, which is exactly what ice cream is, had almost 30 percent less ovulation issues than those who didn't. Pardon the pun but, how cool is that?!

'P-Valley' & 10 Other Shows That Feature Empowered Black Characters

I vividly recall my mother implying that TV couldn’t teach me much of anything, but in reality, we know that representation teaches us a lot! It empowers us and highlights diverse ways of Black life (more so in recent television history) that vary from traditional to not so traditional – though this makes the impact no less real. Television shows like P-Valley highlight the importance of human decency over respectability politics, while other shows allow us to see the value in falling through life with our awkwardness.

With the Fourth of July also nearing, summertime celebrations and cookouts will be in full force. However, as the tide begins to turn in this new day and age, more Black Americans are celebrating Juneteenth, instead of the Fourth of July, because, after all, there were still over 250,000 Black Americans enslaved in Galveston, Texas during this so-called Independence Day.
