Victoria Beckham and Heidi Klum are among the celebrity fans of EBOOST, a daily immune-system booster containing vitamins and minerals like zinc, potassium and vitamin B-12. Not only is the fizzy orange drink (which comes in tablet or powder form; $24 for a pack of 24) good for your health, it also has green-tea extract for a more natural pick-me-up than a sugary energy drink. And it’s only five calories a serving! For more tips on avoiding sick days, see Health.com. – Alexis Chiu

Jennifer Love Hewitt has learned a life lesson: Flaunt what you have while you have it. “I wish I had been nude from the time I was 12 until I was 28. I looked great!” the Ghost Whisperer star tells Health magazine. Still, the 29-year-old, whose weight was criticized when pictures of her vacationing in a bikini ran last year, is embracing her womanly figure. “There s nothing more graceful or elegant than the beauty of a female when she has figured out who she is.” – Serena Kappes

To stay light on her feet for her role on USA Network’s action-packed spy series Burn Notice, Gabrielle Anwar has lightened her diet. The British actress banned “foods with ingredients that I need a dictionary to define,” she says. “I find that the less animal products I consume the better my general health; the less refined sugars, the less I feel the energy fall out; and the more organic fresh produce I eat, the lighter I feel.” For six important ways to eat better, check out Health.com. – Charlotte Triggs

Want the body of a dancer? Follow Karina Smirnoff’s lead and try the body-isolation workout, a technique used by salsa and merengue dancers to learn to move their hips and chest while keeping the rest of their body still. “You can do it for twenty minutes and you feel like your whole body tightens up,” says the Dancing with the Stars hoofer. Another benefit: Latin dance can add a spark to your life. Find out how on Health.com! – Shruti Dhalwala
