Curd Vs. Buttermilk - Which Has More Benefits?

Curd Vs. Buttermilk - Which Has More Benefits?

Curd and buttermilk are both milk-based products, have the same composition, and more or less the same nutrients, yet there remains a persistent question as to which out of the two is better? Just by adding water to the curd can change it into buttermilk, but will it also change the properties of the curd? The answer is yes.

Let's find out how it happens. The basic difference between curd and buttermilk is the process of dilution by the addition of water. The more water you put in curd, the less concentrated the buttermilk becomes. According to Ayurveda, the churning (Manthana) of the curd into buttermilk, gives it additional properties. The churning process breaks the proteins present in the curd and makes it easy to digest. 

Here are a few pointers that could help you choose which out of the two is more suitable for you. 

  • Calorie content - If you are looking forward to reduce your weight and prefer a controlled diet, you should opt for buttermilk. 100 grams of buttermilk contains 40 calories, whereas, 100 grams of curd contains close to 98 calories. Undernourished children or people who want to gain weight, should opt for curd because it is dense in nutrients.
  • Nutritional content - Buttermilk is rich in calcium, vitamin B12, zinc, riboflavin (vitamin B2) and proteins. It helps in keeping your bones healthy, lowering the level of bad cholesterol, preventing cancer, battling stress and anemia due to the presence of these nutrients. On the other hand, curd contains calcium, phosphorus, vitamins B12, B5, B2, potassium, proteins, and molybdenum. These nutrients prove to be beneficial in preventing the chance of hypertension and heart diseases, promoting teeth and bone health and reducing stress and anxiety.
  • Fluid content -  Buttermilk has significant fluid content, so it can be consumed in extremely hot weather conditions to curb dehydration and is an ideal replacement for aerated and sugary drinks. On the contrary, curd has limited fluid content, which makes it suitable for people who have been instructed to adhere to a fluid-restricted diet but are required to consume proteins in good quantity. 
  • Probiotics content - Both curd and buttermilk are rich in probiotics or good bacteria, which help in strengthening your immune system.

Buttermilk is always advisable for patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome and weak digestion etc. Remember to make either of the two a part of your regular diet! In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Navratri Fasting - 5 Things You Must Be Careful About!

Navratri Fasting - 5 Things You Must Be Careful About!

While Navaratri fasting is very popular among the Hindu society, there is a scientific reason behind this fasting. It happens twice in a year during seasonal change. This is the time when the weather changes and the body become vulnerable due to low immunity. This is the reason why food items such as meat, grains, salt etc. are prohibited. Ayush theory suggests that food items such as the onion and salt can infuse negative energy and there are high chances of falling ill. However, the real question remains as to what to eat during the nine days of Navratri. Here is a guideline for the same:

  1. Keep the hydration going: This goes without saying. The level of water consumption and beverages, in general, should be stepped up during this time. While frequent drinking of water comes real handy, drinking lemon water, coconut water, buttermilk and plain milk will ensure that your energy level does not drop and a person can run through the day without any lethargy.
  2. Do not go empty stomach: While rituals can be a binding, it should never be a hindrance to health. Going empty stomach for long can harm the body to a large extent. First, it creates acidity in a person and makes it difficult for a person to digest food when he consumes it. Second, staying empty stomach for too long can cause a tendency to vomit, and leads to nausea and headache.
  3. Avoid fried food: Fried food might taste like heaven after a long day’s fast, but remember it does more harm than good. Food items such as aloo tikki, sabudana and papad are extremely popular among folks during this time, but they are very taxing for the stomach after the fast. Too much oil can lead to an upset stomach and dehydrate the body. Some healthier options include kheer and khichdi. Dairy products have the unique advantage of keeping the stomach full and maintain normal body health.
  4. Increase your intake of fruits: Fruits are one of the best options during the Navaratri fasts. Some of the recommended fruit options include watermelon, apple, mango, musk melon etc. Fruits keep the tummy at peace without any harm. However, people suffering from high blood sugar should ensure that the portion size of fruit consumption is limited. Lemon and any type of citrus food should also be avoided during this time.
  5. Opt for healthy vegetables: While most devotees follow a strict vegetarian diet, some vegetables should get the preference owing to their nutritious benefits to the body. Vegetables such as the potatoes, bottle gourds, pumpkins, carrots, sweet potatoes, cucumber etc. are extremely beneficial for the body. It should be kept in mind that vegetables are boiled or cooked in non-refined oil for a healthy fast. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.

My baby is born premature and was in NICU for 20 days. Now she is 45 days old and unable to latch and reluctant to breast feeding inspite of all attempts. Meanwhile my milk got suppressed. One of my friend suggested that if the baby is reluctant then husband can try to suck, and hence can stimulate and pump the milk. even though this seems to be weird, is this really true and help me. Please suggest.

Human relationship is all about respecting and understanding. You can discuss your concerns and views in a respectful manner.

Sometimes it's difficult in the beginning but with patience you can put across your feelings and emotions. Try also to listen to the other person and his thoughts and views.

How Men And Women Are Effected By Infertility?

How Men And Women Are Effected By Infertility?

Infertility is a medical condition in which the patient fails to conceive after one year of having unprotected sex. It is advisable that women who are above 35 years of age and often experience irregular menstrual cycles should consult a doctor on being unable to conceive within six months.

Is infertility a common issue?
Infertility has become a common problem for the new age women. Sedentary lifestyle and stress are believed to hamper the fertility of women nowadays. According to a report, about 6 percent women in US in the age group 15-44 years are infertile.

Infertility: It’s not just a woman’s problem
Infertility is not an issue with only women. Both, men and women can be infertile or are responsible for the condition. The process of reproduction requires mutual co-operation from both sexes. Therefore, they can together contribute towards infertility as well. It is wrong to blame the woman only. According to the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth data, it has been found that about 7.5 % men in the age group of 18-45 years (who have has sexual exposure) visited infertility clinics at least once in their lifetime. Of these men, about 18% were affected with male-related infertility issues.

Infertility in men: Men can suffer from infertility due to various factors. The infertility can be detected by analysis of the semen. A doctor can evaluate the concentration of the semen or determine the sperm count, the mobility of the sperm and its shape or morphology. These are important for fertility. Semen analysis can be hampered due to the following conditions:
1. Varioceles - The veins on the man’s testicles are unnaturally large and leads to overheating of the sperms
2. Diseases like diabetes, cystic fibrosis, trauma and infection.
3. Unhealthy lifestyle
4. Environmental toxins

Infertility in women: Women must have proper functioning of the reproductive organs to become fertile. The fallopian tubes, ovaries and uterus must be physically and physiologically fit for getting pregnant. A woman may get infertile due to following reasons:
1. Irregular periods that suggests the woman is not ovulating properly.
2. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
3. Functional hypothalamic amenorrhea (FHA) or excessive physical or emotional stress causing missed periods
4. Diminished ovarian reserve (DOR) or inability of the ovary to produce sufficient eggs
5. Premature ovarian insufficiency: The ovary stops functioning properly before 40 years of age
6. Blocked, swollen or open fallopian tubes
7. Menopause

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi lybrate-user thanks for using Lybrate. Regarding youur complaint of post pregnancy weight gain and unable to reduce it. So Irshad it depends on person to person. First I want to know how much time passed to your pregnancy and trying all these method which are not working for you. Are you continuing breast feeding your child. As you talked about your skin discolouration and hairfall that are due to post delivary hormonal changes. In your case a vigrous diet may cause more harm because you may be feeding your child and getting hair fall so if there would be no proper maintainance of balance diet so you will not get proper vitamin ang mineral required for your hair. You can try homoeopathy as it will cover all your problem because a detail understanding of your problem is required so I can help you better. Take care.
