Wheat Germ: Natural Weight-Loss Food

Wheat Germ: Natural Weight-Loss Food

When you cut back on saturated fat, you almost certainly cut back on the amount of meat you eat. When this happens, you may also be cutting back on important nutrients, too. Filling the void, though, is fat-fighting wheat germ. It provides a bevy of minerals, including all-important iron and zinc.

Wheat germ, a health-food basic, is the embryo of the wheat kernel. It is one portion of the wheat kernel that is removed when it is processed into refined flour. Wheat germ certainly deserves its reputation for being a powerhouse of nutrients, as its profile strikingly illustrates.

Health benefits

Face it, wheat germ is a nutrition standout. It's one of the best sources of folic acid. That's good news, since it's recommended that all women of childbearing age get sufficient amounts of this nutrient to prevent neural-tube birth defects. Folic acid reduces a compound in your body called homocysteine. Lower levels of homocysteine have been linked to reducing the risk of heart disease, osteoporosis bone fractures, and dementia.

Wheat germ also contains a phytonutrient called l-ergothioneine, which is a powerful antioxidant that is not destroyed by cooking. The fiber boost you get from wheat germ is phenomenal.

Selection and storage

Because of its unsaturated fat content, wheat germ goes rancid easily, especially if it's raw. Fresh wheat germ should smell something like toasted nuts, not musty. Unopened, a sealed jar of wheat germ will keep about one year on the shelf. Always store opened wheat germ in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed container, where it'll keep up to nine months.

Preparation and serving tips

Wheat germ makes a nutritious and often undetectable addition to a myriad of dishes, including breads, pancakes, waffles, cookies, cereals, and milk shakes. It's a lower-fat alternative to granola that can be added to yogurt and cereals. When adding wheat germ to baked goods or quick breads, you can replace one half to one cup of the flour with it. Because wheat germ tends to absorb moisture, you may want to add one to two tablespoons of water for every one-quarter cup of wheat germ you add to a recipe.

As you work on your weight-loss plan to cut back on fatty meat dishes, remember that wheat germ can provide you with those vitamins and minerals you may be missing, as well as give you fiber to satisfy your appetite.

Dear user. TO CAUSE PREGNANCY on a woman, sperm should be ejaculated inside the vagina or fresh sperm should be inseminated inside the vagina with some means during the fertility period of the woman. Pregnancy only happens when other aspects are too satisfied. In the given case, there are less chances of pregnancy. Take care.

Do You Know Excessive Hair Growth in Women is Hirsutism

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
IVF Specialist, Delhi
Do You Know Excessive Hair Growth in Women is Hirsutism

There are women who feel their looks are spoilt because of the presence of excessive body hair. While hair on women's body is common, excessive body hair isn't a normal condition and must be taken seriously. Women are generally unaware that the condition is known as Hirsutism.

What is Hirsutism?

Hirsutism can be defined as growth of excessive facial and body hair in women. With the world obsessed with flawless skin, such changes from feminine hair pattern (soft, fine, vellus hair) to masculine hair pattern (hard, dark, terminal hair) in a woman is generally unwelcoming and, hence, very distressing for the woman.

Why do some women develop Hirsutism?

In order to understand the reasons for such excessive growth in some women, it is important to understand the differences in the physiology of men and women. The male or female appearance of one's body is dependent on a delicate balance between male and female sex hormones. There is a predominance of the hormone estrogen in a woman's body, whereas androgens (testosterone) are the predominant sex hormones among men. However, some amount of androgens is secreted by the ovaries and adrenal glands (located next to kidneys) in women also. But, an excessive production of these hormones results in Hirsutism. Hormonal imbalance is by far the most common cause of Hirsutism.

Causes of Hirsutism

The common causes of hirsutism include:

1. Endocrine causes

  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) - PCOS is a condition of hormonal imbalance in the body, which can result in an irregular menstrual cycle, enlarged ovaries with a cystic appearance on USG, infertility, obesity and hirsutism. For more information on the causes and management of PCOS.
  • Cushing's syndrome - Excessive production of hormone Cortisol by the adrenal glands can lead to symptoms such as high blood pressure, abdominal obesity, skin discoloration, muscle weakness, irregular menstruation, and hirsutism etc. This syndrome is known as Cushing's syndrome.
  • Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) - CAH is a condition of excessive production of hormones Androgens and Cortisol by the adrenal glands and generally manifests in childhood in the form of virilization. In such cases, CAH can present with symptoms such as ambiguous genitals, obesity, hypertension etc. However, sometimes the manifestation of CAH is deferred to early adulthood and results in milder symptoms, hirsutism being one of them.

2. Tumors - Tumors in ovary or adrenal glands can again cause hirsutism due to excessive production of androgens

3. Medications

  • Long term steroid consumption (commonly used for immunosuppression, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis)
  • Performance enhancing drugs (often used by athletes)

4. Idiopathic - the woman may be having hirsutism despite normal hormone levels

Treatments

There are essentially two lines of treatment for hirsutism - one is medical management and the other is a cosmetic treatment.

Medical treatments for hirsutism -

A. Birth control pills - It's possible to reduce the severity and intensity of hair growth using birth control pills- the most commonly prescribed medical intervention! The birth control pills help by decreasing the production of androgens by ovaries. Besides this, estrogen present in the pills also helps the liver to produce more of sex hormone binding protein- these proteins bind to circulating androgens, thereby reducing their action on the body. Both these actions help in reducing the growth of hair on the body.

B. Anti-androgen medications - There are three categories of anti-androgen medications, which are commonly used for the treatment of hirsutism.

  • I. Spironolactone - Spironolactone is a diuretic medicine, which blocks the effects of androgens on the hair follicles, thus controlling hair growth.
  • II. Finasteride - Finasteride works by blocking the conversion of body testosterone into its more potent chemical entity, thereby limiting the effect of testosterone on hair growth.
  • III. Flutamide - Flutamide is a potent anti-androgen, which blocks the actions of androgens and helps in controlling the hair growth.

However, we have to ensure that the woman is not pregnant when taking any of these three medications. These medicines are often combined with oral contraceptives, which also have a synergistic effect in reducing the severity of hirsutism. One should also seek an expert opinion before starting these medications as there can be serious side effects, especially on liver.

C. Steroids - Low dose dexamethasone can be used to control the overactive adrenal glands when used carefully. However, long-term steroid therapy has got its own side effects and this therapy should only be considered under expert care and guidance.

D. Insulin sensitizing medicines - Medicines such as Metformin and Pioglitazone (Basically these are anti-diabetic medications) help in reducing insulin resistance in the body, which, in turn, helps in controlling the effects of excessive circulating androgens.

Cosmetic treatment for hirsutism -

One very important aspect of cosmetic management of hirsutism is self-care. This can include shaving, waxing, use of depilators and bleaching creams. All these measures help to reduce the amount of visible hair in undesired parts of the body. But, this needs to be done very frequently for a sustained visible effect.

Permanent hair removal is also possible using electrolysis or LASER treatment. In electrolysis treatment, electric current is passed into the hair follicle using a needle, which damages the root of the hair permanently. Similarly, LASER treatment uses LASER to destroy the hair follicle. Both these are effective methods to get rid of the undesired hair. However, we do not yet know if there are any long-term complications or side effects of these methods and these methods are not yet approved by the US FDA.

Namaskar, main Dr Pradnya Aptikar hoon. Thane mein main 16-17 years se practice kar rahi hoon as an ayurvedic gynaecologist. Ayurvedic gynaecology may be a new concept for you all. So ayurvedic gynaecology kis tarike se kaam karta hain? Jo classical Ayurved ki jaankari rakhte hain, aur modern science ki bhi jaankari hain, under one roof, I am working as an ayurvedic gynaecologist. Jis disease main Ayurved acchi tarike se kaam karta hain, usme ayurvedic medicines ki tarike se hum kaam karte hain. Aur jis diseases mein humein modern technology ki zarurat padhti hain diagnosis ke liye, jaise ki infertility ki baat hum lete hain, jisme hume X-ray, yap hire laparoscopy, hysteroscopy or surgery ki zarurat padti hai. In sab cheezon ko dhyan humein rakhte huye hume kaam karna padhta hain. Toh ayurvedic gynaecology hone ke bawajood, main baaki medicines or ayurvedic medicines ki bhi jaankari rakhti hoon. Jaise ki diabetes hai, thyroid disorders hai, endocrinological disorders hai, us me hum kaam karte hain. Aur yeh sab kaam ayurvedic medicines ke zariye kiya jaata hain. Ayurved jo hain, who alag tarike se kaam karta hain.

Aj hum infertility ke baare mein pehle baat karenge. Jaise ki by definition infertility ka matlab hain ki patient, ya couple agar ek saal se conceive nahi kar paa raha hain, phir toh hum unhein infertile bolte hain. Jaise ki the couple is trying for a baby for one year with unprotected sex, still they are not getting success, then the couple is defined as an infertile couple. Toh uske liye hum kaam karte hain. Toh agar apko dekha jay, toh isko hum anatomy apko mein batati hoon.

Isme yeh aap dekhte sakte hain ki yeh body of the uterus hain, yeh ovaries hain, and fallopian tubes hain. Toh isme agar PCOD jaise conditions hain, jaise ki ovaries mein agar anda taiyar nahin ho raha hain, har mahine mein  period aate hain, to periods start hone k 14th or 16th day ek ek anda right ya left ovaries se nikalta hain. Lekin agar ye nahi nikalta hain, ya phir immature nikalta hain, ya phir ovarian cyst taiyar ho jata hain, wo anda puri tarike se bahar nahi nikalta. Toh, yeh anda poori tarike se nikalne ke baad, yeh naliye usme kaam karte hain. Naliya usko jaise kheech leti hain. Then agar sperms acchi quality ke hain, toh ye upar swim karke aate hain, and yeh. Accha sperm is helpful in  fertilizing the ovum, and the embryo is formed in the fallopian tube, and that get implanted in the uterine cavity.

Aisi tarike se fertilization hoke, implantation hoke, pregnancy hoti hain. Lekin ye kisi bhi factor mein agar problem hai, toh infertility hoti hain. Jaise ki maine kaha ki ovarian cyst hain, PCOS hain, endometriosis hain, ya phir tubal blockage hain, toh phir humein success nahin milta hain, or humein infertility ka samna karna padhta hain. Toh is tarike mein, is mamle mein, ayurved kaise help karta hain?

Toh is mamle mein humein purification process rehti hain panchakarma se. Anda normal ya mature anda taiyyar hone mein hum kaam karte hain. Aur male partners mein agar sperm ki quality achchi nahi hain toh usme bhi hum panchakarma processes kar ke, hum sperm ki quality acChi tarike se badhate hain. Aur jis jis mein tubal blockages hain ya phir endometriosis hain, use bhi hum gynaceological panchakarma rehte hain. Jaise jise hum _____ bolte hain, aur uterus ki peeling process karke hum us mein kaam karte hain. Is me tubal blockages bhi nikal aatein hain, aur implantation ki chances badh jaate hain. Endometrium ki quality hum badhatein hain. IUI aur IVF jaise jo artificial reproductive techniques hain, isme bhi yeh karne se pehle agar hum panchakarma aur ye agar process karte hain, toh humein achchi tarike se results milte hain.

And further information ke liye, you can contact me via Lybrate.com. Thank you.

Hi! Doctor After delivery how much time can I use 1. Birth control pills or injection or loop which is suitable for me or plz zip explain side effects also R

Doctor of Medicine, F.C.P.S.(Mid. & Gynae)
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
You can start using pills or lUCD after three months after delivery if there has been no problem during or after delivery. Birth control pills have to be taken regularly without fail. The low-dose pills have hardly any side effects such as break-through bleeding, mild headache, mild weight gain which usually disappear with time. Failure of contraception may occur. With IUCD and injections there may be spotting or bleeding, painful periods and excessive bleeding during menses. The IUCD may fall off. The side effects may become less as time passes. Regular check-ups to see that IUCD is in place are necessary. But overall side-effects are tolerable and benefits far outweigh the side-effects.

Are Krimpson 35 and Benforce M are the perfect medicines for PCOs? I have suggested to take krimpson 35 for 6 months and Benforce M for 3 months. Should I take these medicines? Are these two safe and will it cure my pcos?

Yes please take them. Pcos is never 100% curable as it is a genetically inherited condition. But these medicines will help in regularising your periods and other problems you might have like acne/pimples as well as reduce your tendency to developing glucose intolerance. Please read my health tip on pcos. You may find it useful.
