About Us

For the past 12 years, New Jersey Life has been the authoritative source for the urbane tastes of our state's most affluent readers. The popularity and continued success of our Mind, Body, Spirit column has now evolved into its own publication--Health + Beauty.

With the expertise of our Editorial Board of Advisors, which comprises the state's top medical experts and holistic health practitioners, this service-oriented publication addresses many of the tough health issues women face today and gives the reader concise and practical tips on how to improve her overall well-being. Our editorial cover's women's lifestyle topics that include fitness, meditation, nutrition, beauty, alternative practices, and greener and holistic living as well as hard-hitting subjects like cardiac health and breast cancer.

Targeting the state's billion-dollar health care industry, Health + Beauty is a unique regional publication that is distributed to 40,000 NJL subscribers as well as to Barnes & Noble, Borders, and major spas, salons, fitness centers, and doctors' offices throughout the state.
