Coconut Water Benefits And Side Effects In Hindi - नारियल पानी के फायदे और नुकसान

नारियल पानी के फायदे हमें स्वास्थ्य से संबंधित कई परेशानियों में लाभ पहुंचाते हैं. नारियल पानी को पूरी दुनिया में पिया जाता है. अपने स्वाद और पोषक तत्वों के कारण ये बहुत ही लोकप्रिय और पानी का बहुत अच्छा विकल्प है. गर्मियों के दिनों में हम इसका सेवन बॉडी के तापमान को सामान्य बनाए रखने के लिए करते हैं. नारियल पानी हमारे शरीर में स्वस्थ पीएच बहाल करने में मददगार है. इसमें पाए जाने वाले पोषक तत्वों में एंटीऑक्सीडेंट, अमीनो एसिड, एंजाइमों, विटामिन बी कॉम्प्लेक्स, विटामिन सी और खनिज लोहा, कैल्शियम, पोटेशियम, मैग्नीशियम, मैंगनीज और जिंक आदि महत्वपूर्ण हैं. आइए नारियल पानी के फायदे और नुकसान को जानें.

  • हृदय रोग का जोखिम घटाए: यह कम घनत्व वाले लिपोप्रोटीन ('खराब कोलेस्ट्रॉल) को कम करके उच्च घनत्व वाले लिपोप्रोटीन (‘अच्छा’ कोलेस्ट्रॉल) के स्तर को बढ़ाने में सहायता करता है. इसमें मौजूद एंटीऑक्सीडेंट में सूजन को कम करने वाले और एन्टीप्लेटलेट गुण होते हैं और यह रक्त परिसंचरण में सुधार करने में भी मदद करता है.
  • हैंगओवर उतारने के लिए: हैंगओवर उतारने के लिए प्राकृतिक उपायों में से एक नारियल पानी भी है. शराब पिने के कारण आपके शरीर में पानी की कमी हो जाती है. लेकिन नारियल पानी हैंगओवर के दौरान शरीर में इलेक्ट्रोलाइट्स की कमी को पूरा करता है और इसमें मौजूद एंटीऑक्सीडेंट, ऑक्सीडेटिव तनाव से लड़ता है.
  • वजन कम करने में: नारियल पानी, कैलोरी में कम और पचने में आसान होता है. इसमें विभिन्न बायोएक्टिव एंजाइम भी मौजूद होते हैं जो कि पाचन और वसा के चयापचय को प्रोत्साहित करते हैं. इसमें मौजूद पोटेशियम, सोडियम को बाहर करने में मदद करता है.
  • दिलाए सिरदर्द से छुटकारा: अधिकांश सिर दर्द के मामलों में, नारियल पानी शरीर के लिए इलेक्ट्रोलाइट्स की आपूर्ति और जल सेवन को बढ़ाने में बहुत मदद करता है. नारियल पानी में भी मैग्नीशियम भरपूर मात्रा में पाया जाता है. जाहिर है सिरदर्द से पीड़ित लोगों में मैग्नीशियम का स्तर निम्न होता है.
  • रक्तचाप के नियंत्रण में: रक्तचाप को नियंत्रित करने के लिए नारियल के पानी में विटामिन सी, पोटेशियम और मैग्नीशियम सामग्री प्रचुर मात्रा में पाई जाती है. उच्च रक्तचाप को कम करने के लिए एक कप ताजा नारियल पानी दिन में दो बार पिएं.
  • बचाए निर्जलीकरण से: निर्जलिकरण कई समस्याओं की जड़ है. इसकी वजह से दस्त, उल्टी या अत्यधिक पसीना आने जैसी परेशानियाँ होती हैं. लेकिन जब हम नारियल पानी पीते हैं तो न सिर्फ निर्जलीकरण की समस्या दूर होती है बल्कि इससे तुरंत ऊर्जा भी मिलती है.
  • गर्भावस्था के दौरान: गर्भावस्था महिलाओं के लिए कई तरह के शारीरिक बदलाव लेकर आता है. इस दौरान उन्हें कई तरह के पोषक तत्वों की आवश्यकता होती है. पोषक तत्वों की ज़रूरत न केवल गर्भवती महिला के लिए होती है बल्कि उसके गर्भ में पल रहें बच्चे की सेहत भी इसी पर निर्भर करती है.
  • मधुमेह के उपचार में: इसमें मौजूद एमिनो एसिड और आहार फाइबर रक्त शर्करा को नियंत्रित और इंसुलिन के प्रति संवेदनशीलता में सुधार करने में मददगार हैं. यह रक्त परिसंचरण के सुधार में मदद करता है. इसमें पाए जाने वाले पोषक तत्व, शरीर में शक्‍कर के स्तर को नियंत्रित रखते हैं. मधुमेह के रोगियों के लिए बहुत जरुरी है.
  • मूत्रवर्धक के रूप में: रियल पानी एक प्राकृतिक मूत्रवर्धक के रूप में कार्य करता है. यह मूत्र मार्ग में संक्रमण जैसी समस्याओं को भी रोकने में मदद करता है. नारियल पानी में मौजूद उच्च मिनरल, पोटेशियम और मैग्नीशियम सामग्री के कारण यह गुर्दे में होने वाली पथरी के खतरे को कम करता है.
  • एंटी एजिंग के रूप में: नारियल पानी में साइटोकाइनिन्स है जो कि कोशिकाओं और ऊतकों पर उम्र को कम करने वाले प्रभाव डालता है. आपकी त्वचा को नरम और चिकनी रखने के लिए नारियल पानी भी आपकी त्वचा को पोषण और हाइड्रेट करता है.

नारियल पानी के नुकसान
* व्यायाम करने के बाद प्यास बुझाने के लिए नारियल पानी का उपयोग न करें.
* ज्यादा मात्रा में इसका सेवन करने से आपको बार-बार मूत्र त्याग के लिए जाना पड़ सकता है.
* शीतल प्रकृति वाले और ठंड से ग्रस्त लोगों को इसके सेवन से बचना चाहिए.
* नारियल पानी हमेशा ताजा ही पीना चाहिए.

Cornflakes - A Perfect Way To Start Your Day!

Breakfast is the most significant meal of the day which helps in boosting the energy which will empower people to carry on all through the day. Having a platter of healthy breakfast improves physical and mental health, and it should ideally be low in fat, cholesterol and sodium content and high in minerals, proteins and vitamins content. Preparation of conventional and nutritious meals in the morning is becoming rare due to our preoccupation with different tasks, and this is where the role of cornflakes comes into being.

Cornflakes are widely acknowledged breakfast cereal and help in preparing meals in almost no time. It is low in fat, provides energy and is highly nutritious. And, the best part is that the cornflakes come in different flavours and are easily available in the market worldwide. The breakfast cereal is produced by combining sugar with milled corn and high fructose corn syrup. It is proven that these flakes offer an easy utilisation of the minerals, vitamins and other nutrients than its non-milled counterparts.

There are different varieties of cornflakes, which include:

  1. Cornflakes with milk: Cornflakes are a protein rich food. Protein is essential for the red blood cells and for the right functioning of the antibodies which resist infection. Having this type of cornflakes helps in the regulation of the hormones and enzymes as well as repairing body tissues.
  2. Frosted cornflakes: This cornflakes meal is particularly desirable for growing children. They are considered a rich source of protein, calcium and mineral and the added sugar gives the energy to function properly.
  3. Honey Cornflakes: Honey cornflakes are quite favourite among kids and adults alike. As they are rich in all the nutrients whereas honey provides thiamin, niacin, riboflavin along with vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. So, you should consider adding this cereal to your daily meals.
  4. Almond cornflakes: Like honey cornflakes, this variant also combines the goodness of both almonds and cornflakes. Almonds help to improve mental health, strengthens muscles and tissues, prolongs life, and enhances the texture of skin and hair. It is also found beneficial in curing cough and preventing asthma. Thus, you must invest in almond cornflakes for its high nutritional value.
  5. Carotenoid cornflakes: You can also look for cornflakes rich in beta-cryptoxanthin which is required for improving the health of lungs and prevention of lung cancer. It also assists in promoting cardiovascular health when consumed at moderate levels every day. It is also recommended for individuals suffering from renal issues, and the carotid pigment is associated with prevention of muscular cancer.
  6. Crushed cornflakes: Though this is not any distinct type of cornflakes, it can be purchased separately and taken in place of breadcrumbs. They make a healthy breakfast when you combine crushed cornflakes with yogurt, pudding or plain milk.

These are the primary variants of the cornflakes, and each of them offers a host of benefits which make them a preferred choice in daily snacks and breakfast. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.

Trichomycosis Axillaris - Know The Right Way It Can Be Treated!

Trichomycosis Axillaris - Know The Right Way It Can Be Treated!

As we work around the clock and rush to meet targets and achieve goals, we may be forgetting an important aspect of life. The health, hygiene and well-being of ourselves are completely lost when we are busy taking care of other things. This is the reason why we fall prey to health issues and disorders.

The health issues may vary from deeply embedded internal viruses to superficial bacterial infections. One such superficial infection is Trichomycosis Axillaris. This is an infection that affects the hair shafts in regions that are highly prone to sweating, such as the underarm areas. The hair in the underarms may at times appear like they have matter stuck to them, in such cases; the bacterial infection may seem to be present.

The infection that affects the shafts of hair is known to be completely painless. The infection, in fact, appears only when the hair in moist areas grow long and get coated by dirt like particles that may appear yellow, red or white. The infection causes smelly areas and may be a hindrance in regular life because of the smell that it may cause in regular situations.

Treatment of the infection:
There are a number of ways in which the infection of Trichomycosis Axillaris can be treated or kept at bay. Most importantly, when you start to experience a change in the appearance of hair in moist regions, you should check with a dermatologist to know about the actual root or cause of the problem. When it is established that the infection is indeed Trichomycosis Axillaris, the doctor may suggest the following precautions and medications:

  1. You may be asked to take medicines for the bacterial infection in the form of antibiotics that are topically applied to the infected area.
  2. The use of medicated soaps that help in keeping the skin free of bacteria may also be recommended by the dermatologists.
  3. You may also be asked to apply powders that keep the area dry to avoid the formation of sweat or moisture which makes for an easy breeding ground for bacteria.
  4. One of the most effective methods may be to shave the hair off so that the bacteria may be removed, but it should also be accompanied by a medical treatment so that the infection does not recur.
  5. The use of deodorants that help in keeping moisture out may also help in keeping a check on the infection.

Choosing the specialist:
Though the Trichomycosis Axillaris infection may not be very threatening in nature, it is important to keep the body healthy in all manners, which is why you should seek for a doctor that specialises in skin care and may be able to help in eliminating the infection altogether. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
