Benefits of Having Orange In Your Diet

#1 Boosts Immunity

Oranges is an excellent source of vitamin c. A single medium-sized orange can fulfil about 72% of your daily requirement for vitamin c. Since vitamin c plays a crucial role as an antioxidant by protecting your body against the damage caused by free radicals generated in the body. It therefore reduces inflammation in immune related conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Although debatable, researchers suggest that vitamin c also plays an important role in strengthening immune responses of the body, protecting against recurring cold and cough or any other common infections. Here are 11 ways to include oranges in your diet.


 

#2 Helps prevent ageing of skin

There's a reason why oranges are popularly used in the beauty industry. Several beauty products including face packs, masks and creams that are available contain orange extract as a key ingredient. That's because vitamin c present in oranges also helps prevent skin damage, by eliminating free radicals. Vitamin c, being involved in synthesis of collagen, an important component to maintain skin's overall appearance and texture, prevents premature aging and wrinkling of the skin. Apart from vitamin c, oranges are packed with vitamin a that help keep the skin membranes healthy. Here are 8 fruit packs you can make at home for beautiful skin.


 

#3 Protects the eyes

Vitamin a in oranges helps keep mucus membranes in the eyes healthy. Available in the form of carotenoid compounds like lutein, beta carotene and zeaxanthin, vitamin a is protective against age-related macular degeneration, a vision-related condition that causes blindness. Besides, it also plays an important role in allowing your eyes to absorb the light. You may also read tomatoes- natural remedy for good vision.


 

#4 Help prevents heart disease

This is yet another health benefit of oranges which is attributed to its vitamin c level. Free radicals generated during various reactions taking place in the cells can trigger oxidation of cholesterol, causing the oxidised molecules to aggregate and stick to the walls of the arteries. This leads to build up of plaques that eventually block the arteries, causing heart attack, coronary artery disease or even stroke. Vitamin c in oranges takes care of these free radicals and neutralises them, thus playing a role in preventing heart disease. Besides they also contain flavonoids like hesperidin that lowers cholesterol level and prevents the arteries from getting blocked.


 

#5 Helps brain development

Folate/folic acid or vitamin b9 present in oranges promote brain development and keep the vital organ in mint condition. In fact, these nutrients also make orange a healthy fruit for pregnant woman as it prevents the baby from having neurological disorders later. Oranges also contain phytonutrients called polyphenols that play a role in development of learning and memory functions of the brain.


 

#6 Helps prevent cancer

Oranges contain a compound called d – limonene that has been shown to play an important role in preventing various types of cancer like lung cancer, breast cancer, skin cancer, etc. Additionally, the antioxidants and vitamin c help promote the body’s immunity which helps in fighting cancer cells. Oranges are highly fibrous fruits, which contributes to its cancer-protecting effect. A study revealed that about 10 to 15 per cent of colon cancer cases are caused by mutations in the dna. These mutations can prevented by consuming vitamin c rich sources like oranges. Here are some other health benefits of vitamin c you should know


 

#7 Pevents constipation

Oranges are a very good source of soluble and insoluble fibre, which helps keep your stomach and intestines healthy by preventing problems like irritable bowel syndrome. The fibre content in them adds bulk to the digested food and reduces transit time of feces, preventing constipation and straining.


 

#8 Improves sperm quality

Death is inevitable, but our legacy may live on through our offspring. The antioxidants and vitamin c present in most fruits, including oranges improves the quality and motility of your sperm thus keeping you fertile. Another vitamin called folic acid also is an essential nutrient for maintaining healthy sperms that you can obtain from oranges. It also protects the sperm from genetic damage, which might lead to birth defects.


 

#9 Great for diabetics

The rich fibre content of oranges has the ability to keep a track of sugar levels in the body, preventing diabetes. It is also a good option for those who are diabetic. Also worth mentioning is that good oranges have a sweet taste, and since diabetics aren’t allowed to eat sweets or other sugary foods, they can eat oranges to tingle their taste buds.


 

#10 Prevents hair loss

Orange has high vitamin c content which is required for producing collagen which, in turn, is responsible for keeping the tissues in your hair together. Nobody likes bald patches on their head, and eating oranges can ensure that you do not have to part with your lovely hair as you grow older.

The Most Common Allergies in Kids And How to Avoid Them

Childhood is indisputably, one of the best phases of life. But often this phase is disrupted by illnesses and difficulties. Before they hit the age  mark of one year, they are prone to develop allergies and become susceptible to various diseases as their immune system is still building up.  For the first time parents, it is important that you are aware of the different kinds of allergies that could harm your child.

Through this blog, you’ll be in a position to understand and treat the prevent allergies which happen to kids. Now, let’s take a quick look at these allergies.

Signs of an allergy in kids

Some symptoms of a common allergy in kids are:

  • Rashes, redness or hives
  • Difficulty in breathing, wheezing
  • Upset stomach – constipation or diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Sneezing, coughing, and a runny nose
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Swelling of the lips, face or any certain part of the body
  • Ear pain, or ear infection

A child may have one or more of these symptoms in varying levels. It is always good to keep an eye on your child’s health as these symptoms tend to shoot from mild to severe in a short span of time.

Types of Common Allergies in kids

Although these allergies occur commonly, you need to ensure that your child doesn’t develop any of them. There’s a chance that these symptoms could get worse and without proper treatment and care, they may cause extreme discomfort.

Some of the common allergies in kids are:

  • Food Allergy

Food allergies could occur when children consume a particular food for the first time. Common allergens are peanuts, eggs, milk, dairy products and gluten. A milk allergy (lactose intolerance) can come up during the latter years of the child’s life when he begins to consume milk. On the contrary, peanut, gluten and other such allergies can surface after 6 months of age when solid foods are introduced.

Current recommendations suggest food items like peanuts and other nuts should be introduced early in the first year of life.

 

2. Allergic Rhinitis (Hay Fever)

Although the symptoms are similar to a common cold, allergic rhinitis is one of the most common allergies in kids. It causes a runny nose, sneezing, coughing and sometimes it escalates to severe levels causing a  blocked nose, wheezing and other related breathing difficulties. A child with allergic rhinitis may also develop pain in the ear, which may eventually lead to infection. This can be caused by pollen, parthenium or other allergens in the air.

3. Asthma

It is a condition in which there is a restriction in the flow of air due to the inflammation, narrowing and swelling of the air passages. The body begins to produce extra mucus which makes it difficult to breathe normally. It may be triggered by similar allergens which causes rhinitis. It leads to wheezing, difficulty in breathing, coughing and shortness of breath.

4. Sinusitis

It is a condition in which the cavities around the nasal passages become inflamed. It could get triggered by a cold or some allergens present in the air. One way to know the onset of the sinus is through signs like headache, facial pain, nasal congestion and a runny nose.

5. Bee-sting allergy

A bee sting is never gentle, but if somebody is allergic to the bee venom or bee sting, things could get worse. It may cause swelling of the stung area, severe redness and itching. It may cause swollen air passages leading to difficulty in breathing and dizziness.

6. Eczema

Eczema is a form of dermatitis, which is one of the common allergies in kids. It is a skin condition which is marked by an itchy and an inflamed patch of skin. It appears around the elbow or behind the knees of young kids and teens. Scratching the affected areas can lead to redness of the skin.

How to Avoid Common Allergies in Kids

We believe that prevention is better than cure. So here are a bunch of ways to prevent your child from developing any kind of allergies:

  • Steam inhalation after a warm bath can help in clearing up any nasal or chest congestion. It also helps in killing the bacteria as it is difficult for them to thrive in warm temperatures.
  • Keeping the baby hydrated definitely helps in keeping the allergies at bay. Keep a water bottle or sipper handy because it works as an easy reminder.
  • When the weather is hot, keeping the baby in a cool environment can help in keeping them away from pollen and other common airborne allergens.
  • With itchy and scratchy eyes, a cold compress is the best remedy to bring a soothing relief instantly.
  • Using some warm compress over the face can help in relieving sinus pain and sinus blockages. Using steam inhalation is also helpful in dealing with sinus.

ARE MOBILE PHONES ARE DANGEROUS TO KIDS ?
According to research published in October in the journal Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, children absorb significantly more cell phone radiation than previously thought.
This is because children have smaller heads and thinner skulls than adults, which means their bone marrow can absorb up to 10 times the radiation that an adult's might.
While this doesn't tell us if phones are more dangerous for children, it does suggest that there's a need for caution with children regarding phone usage until more research is done.

My daughter most of teeth is having cavity how can I prevent it, as she is just 3 year old.

MD, MBBS
Pediatrician, Bangalore
Your daughter either must be bottle fed or taking to much sugar. Night time keeping bottle for long time in mouth while sleeping is commonest cause of caries, frequent fruit juices, health drinks, sticking sweet candies are also frequent causes. So please avoid all these. Proper brushing both times with fluorinated tooth paste is important. Consult dentist to prevent further progress to other teeth and gums.

Teeth don't worry, as they can be delayed without any reason. Further diet of 11 month old child is almost 900 to 1000 calories a day divided in six home made feeds, 300ml milk products at interval of three hrs.

Hello. Breast feeding is the best feeding for the baby. All baby usually demand feed after around 2 hrs so nothing wrong with the baby. Pls continue breast feeding even at night. Don't start top feeding just because you r tited. Give top feeding only when the baby is hungry even after bf. Resta you can discuss with lactation counsellor.

Don't give any medicines if your baby is gaining weight properly. Avoid bottle feeding. Start pomegranate and apple juice in small amount. Frequency of slightly watery stool is not a disease if child is growing well.
