2. Fenugreek seeds

What they are:

Fenugreek is a leguminous asin herb with aromatic seeds. Most of its medicinal properties are in the seeds. For centuries, the crushed or powdered seeds have been used externally and internally for several cures. It can be applied as a poultice for hives, boils and ulcers or consumed to increase appetite, counter appetite loss and reduce blood sugar.

What they do: 

A clinicalstudy by gandhi medical colege, hyderabad, published in the indian journal of pharmacogy shows that fenugreek seed have lipid-lowering efect on people with high blood cholesterol. Those with high lipid levels risk cardiovascular disease including deadly strokes and heart attacks. The study found that cholesterol levels were lowered in patients given 25 grams of powdered fenugreel seed twice before meals.

Who should take them?

“while fenugreek is recommended for people with diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol, it is also good for people who don’t suffer from these conditions,” advise Dr. Ashok jhingan, seior consultant diabetotogist and chairman, delhi diabetes research center. He prescribes 10gms of the seeds, soaked overnight, to be taken on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. “many people also eat the seeds mixed with curd.”

Studies show that is cultures where people eat lots of garlic, there are fewer cases of gastric cancer, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

 Research from the central food technological research tnstitute (cftri), mysore, report that garlic and onion increased the activity of two key enzymes involved in cholesterol metabolism.

 Another study conducted by tagore medical college garlic consumption helped heart patients. In their three year study of 432 heart patients, only half of them were given garlic. Those not eating garlic saw no real cardiovascular changes. But the garlic eaters experienced a significant drop in blood pressure, blood cholesterol and mortality rates.

They also experienced less angina, the chest pain heart patient often feel.

 Deodorized garlic tables seem to work as wellas the raw herb in reducting cholesterol.

Who should take it?

The spice is made by grinding the roots of the perennial herb curcuma longa. The boiled dried and powdered underground stem of the plant is used as a flavouring and colouring agent and as a stimulant.

What it does: 

The herb has a mild protective effect against colds and flu; in those who get sick, it appears to limit the duration and severity of symptoms. A study by jamia hamdard university, new delhi, reveals that curcumin, found in turmeric, has antiinflammatory and antispasmodic properties and is useful in the treatment of arthritis.

Who should take it? 

This staple herb works for almost everyone and is effective if taken even as you feel a cold or flu coming on. According to the study, the most interesting feature of curcumin is the lack of gastrointestinal effectsdespite is being an anti-inflammatory agent.

 Try this time-testes recipe from Dr. Vivek nangia, head of respiratory disease, fortis hospital, new delhi: add a teaspoon of turmeric powder in a cup of milk and boil for a few minitues, drink the hot brew twice a day. “the herb’s antioxidant and anti-infective properties help build your immunity against colds.’

5. Tulsi

This sacred plant with the fragrant leaves needs no introduction. No plant is more auspicious as tulsi, or holy basil, at your doorstep.

What it does:

According to a study published in indian journal of pharmaclogy, the consumption of 100mg per kilo body weight of tulsi extract helped reduce acid secretion and protect the mucous membrane of thestomach: it can heal ulcers.

Tulsi contains benificial compounds called phyto-chemicals that possess antioxidant, antiviral, antibacterial and immunity-enhancing properties that supports the body’s defence against disease and promote wellness.

Who shohld take it?

According to Dr. Issac mathai of soukya, a holistic healing center in bangalore, “tulsi is a good hurb for people suffering from colds and coughs. Many ayurvedic cough syrups contain tulsi, because the herb help mobilize mucus in bronchitis and relieves symptoms of asthma.

 “boil tulsi leaves in water and drink the decoction to ease a sore throat. This water is also good for gargling” adds mathai.

Tulsi capsules are available in the market. Dr. Mathai, who practises ayurveda, says that capsules manufatured by reputed companies may be taken as a substitute for the fresh herb.

6 Foods We Eat At Wrong Hours That Harm Our Health

PG Diploma in Nutrition & Diabeties, M.Sc. Food & Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Ghaziabad

As we all know, a balanced diet is very crucial for a healthy body, and eating healthy food with essential nutrients keeps our body nourished. But were you aware that consuming these foods at the wrong time can cause more harm than good? It is, thus, very important to be aware of what to eat at what time to maintain optimum health.

Read on to know more about the best times to eat these healthy foods.

1.   Rice

Dietitians always suggest that you must avoid eating rice at night since they are high in starch. If you eat rice at night, you might feel bloated and may have trouble sleeping.
It is also said that eating rice at night contributes to weight gain since it takes longer to get digested.

2.   Milk

Milk is rich in proteins and other nutrients, and thus, is considered a healthy drink. However, experts claim that drinking it during the day can make you feel lethargic since it takes a long time to digest.

What Is The Best Time To Drink Milk?

The best time to drink milk is at night since it relaxes your body and the nutrients get absorbed effectively.

3. Curd

Eating curd at night induces heat in the body and can cause acidity and other digestive disorders. It can also cause cough, cold, and mucus formation.

What Is The Best Time To Eat Curd?

Eating curd during the day is beneficial for health as it soothes the digestion process and helps in improving gut health.

4. Green Tea

We all love green tea as it has numerous benefits, but you can get these benefits only if you drink it at the right time. Drinking it early in the morning can cause acidity and dehydration because of its caffeine content.

What Is The Best Time To Drink Green Tea?

You can drink green tea any time of the day except early in the morning.

5. Apple

Apple is rich in organic acid. It increases the acidity level in the stomach. Therefore, eating it at night can cause acid reflux.

What Is The Best Time To Eat An Apple?

Since apple is a great source of pectin, i.e., a fiber that helps in smoothening the bowel function and eliminating carcinogens from the body, it is good to eat apples during the day.

6. Banana

Eating a banana at night can cause cough and cold and it can also lead to mucus formation. Thus, avoid eating it at night and on an empty stomach as it can cause stomach disorders too.

What Is The Best Time To Eat A Banana?

Banana is rich in fiber and aids digestion. It is also rich in antacids that are helpful in soothing heartburns. Eating it during the day can help in maintaining your energy levels throughout the day.

Now that you know the best time to eat these healthy foods, don’t make the same mistakes. Eat them at the correct time and stay healthy.

Papaya - 11 Surprising Health Benefits Revealed!

PG Diploma in Nutrition & Diabeties, M.Sc. Food & Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Ghaziabad
Papaya - 11 Surprising Health Benefits Revealed!

Believed to be used by even Christopher Columbus on his discovery voyage, papaya is known as the angel of fruits. While it is not a taste that most usually enjoy the very first time, it can grow on you slowly and then stick on forever. The raw ones are used in salad and curries, the ripe can be eaten either in solid or liquid form, alone or in combination with other fruits.

Some of the wonderful benefits of papaya are listed below.

  1. Anti-inflammatory: The various minerals and vitamins (A, B, C, K) in papaya help improve immunity and prevents infections. It also promotes healing of burns and wounds.
  2. Cholesterol control: The antioxidants, flavonoids and fibre help in cholesterol/plaque accumulation in the arteries. The lipid and triglyceride content can also be reduced with regular consumption of papayas.
  3. Digestive benefits: The enzyme papain contained in papaya is quite effective in reducing the damage caused by eating junk and oily foods. It helps in breaking down proteins and is, therefore, useful as a home remedy for indigestion. It is also rich in fiber and helps relieve constipation.
  4. Diabetes: The high fiber content in papaya combined with the low calories (a medium sized fruit contains about 110 calories) is a boon to diabetes patients. They can eat to their full content without feeling guilty of the sugar levels. Some people also consume the flowers (sautéed in oil) to control diabetes.
  5. Arthritis: The various minerals (potassium, calcium, sodium, and magnesium) in papaya can help keep a check on arthritis and bone and joint pains in the long run.
  6. Weight loss/ cleansing/ detox: The various minerals and vitamins along with the rich fiber content ensure you get a good detox of the system. Papaya is one of the widely used fruits in people who want to lose weight.
  7. Antiaging effects: The antioxidants which reduce the rate of inflammation and the multiple vitamins help in looking younger by improving skin, hair, and overall immunity levels.
  8. Stress buster: Again, the antioxidants and vitamins (C in particular) is a good way to refresh your energy after a long tiring day.
  9. Anti-cancer.effects: The flavonoids, phytonutrients, and antioxidants help to prevent free radical damage which is the main cause of cancer. They also contain beta carotene which helps control prostate and colon cancer.
  10. Eye health: The beta carotene, vitamin A, and lutein help in improving moisture in the eyes and controlling macular degeneration.
  11. Hair health: The scalp produces sebum which is rich in vitamin A. Papaya when applied to the scalp gives the same effect as sebum, which keeps the hair shiny, silky, and lustrous. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.

What are the Beneficial Foods During Exams

PG Diploma in Nutrition & Diabeties, M.Sc. Food & Nutrition

What are the Beneficial Foods During Exams

WHY YOU NEED A FOOD COMBINING FOR A HEALTHY BRAIN

Even though we said nuts are nearly perfect, alone, they just don’t cut it. We need balance. That’s why we combine different foods at different times to get the best possible range of nutrients.

Don’t bother counting, however. As a nutritionist, even I can’t count all the vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, carbohydrates, proteins, and sugars. And we aren’t meant to. Natural foods contain what we need when we need it.

Don’t rely on any particular food on this list. Keep switching out different ones so you get the best of all the nutrients. Try new foods, different vegetables, and different combinations.

Go with your taste buds. When you are studying, we often seek out sweets and stimulating foods. By using the foods on this list, you provide your body with healthy choices that really nourish you.

BRAIN FOOD SNACKS

The combination of fresh fruit with healthy nuts is one of the best snacks you can eat. A simple apple with walnut butter gives you lots of B Vitamins, healthy fats, and just a little bit of sugar. Apples also are packed with fast-acting anti-oxidants, so the stress of studying can be mitigated quickly. Just eat them alone. Or mix and match. Just make sure the brain food is the start of the show.

Brain Foods for exams

  1. It’s better to go into an exam on a less than full stomach than having just eaten. Our anxiety increases when we approach a test, and this anxiety slows or stops our digestive system. This is the main reason to go easy on food before an exam.
  2. An optimal breakfast would be a single egg omelet with spinach, mushrooms, and a few other vegetables. These are lower in sugars, and very high in nutrition. A bad breakfast would be a donut, sugary coffee, or cereal. These are high in sugars, which will give you a sugar crash later on, and very low in nutrition.
  3. Water is important. Keeping hydrated means your brain works optimally. A dehydrated brain is in pain, slow to react, and sensitive to loud noises and lights (a hangover is brain dehydration). Keep a large glass of water near you and refill it often.
  4. Smaller meals and frequent snacking is also good for studying. You don’t want to fill your stomach, because this causes your body to release hormones that cause drowsiness. You also don’t want to be hungry because that causes hormones that take your attention away from studying.
  5. To keep optimally studying, stick to the list of foods above and eat small portions often. That way, you keep your brain engaged, your stomach quiet, your nutrition and sugars high, and your distractions low.
  6. EGGS: B12. You can’t find it anywhere naturally other than in the flesh of other animals. That’s why vegetarians get so sick after a few years.. B12 is perhaps The vitamin for energy, since we are unable to make energy without it.
  7. Dark leafy vegetables

all dark greens are packed with Vitamin K and nitrates. Naturally occurring nitrates are bound to other vital nutrients and are healthy for our systems. Chemical nitrates, like what are found in lunch meats and preserved foods, actually destroy the blood-brain barrier and cause ‘leaking’ into the brain. Not something you want. The vitamin K is necessary for blood clotting, It’s also one of the vital nutrients for the formation of new neuropathways. You are physically able to learn when you have enough vitamin K in your system.

  1. DARK CHOCOLATES:

It’s rich in fiber, iron and magnesium, which all help the brain receive blood flow. The flavonols in dark chocolate increase blood flow, and the function of the heart, which can improve memory. It also contains the stimulants caffeine and theobromine. It’s better than coffee!

  1. PUMPKIN :

This one is a must for men. They contain several fats that are important for brain health, like ELA and ALA. They are also packed with zinc. Men lose more zinc than women, since zinc is a large component to seminal fluids. During stre1ssful times, we use more zinc in our bodies and men lose more seminal fluids. If you eat your pumpkin seeds, you have a fast replacement, and this allows you your stress release and keeps your body sharp.

  1. YOGHURT :

Ever have a gut feeling? That’s the billions of bacteria in your gut reacting to what’s happening. When the good bacteria are in charge, you feel good, have energy, and digest foods without issues. When the bad bacteria are in charge, you are tired, vomiting, have indigestions, and pain. Yogurt contains billions of  good probiotics that replace some of the bad bacteria in our gut. Properly fermented yoghurt (not what is in the tiny containers) is packed with the bacteria, plus thousands of nutritive by-products of the fermentation cycle that help heal our gut. While yogurt alone won’t give you a brain boost, it helps to fix problems and is a great carrier for other brain foods like…

  1. APPLES :

Yes, it can keep the doctor away, or at least the memory doctor. Apples contain high levels of acetylcholine, increasing movement and sensory perception. Apples also reduce anxiety, improve cognitive performance. Another study showed students who eat an apple at lunch show as much as a 7 point increase in test scores during afternoon exams.

  1. BLUEBERRIES :

Studies show that blueberries boost concentration and memory for up to five hours because the antioxidants in blueberries stimulate the flow of blood and oxygen to [your] brain – and keep the mind fresh. Blueberries also contain a cocktail of anti-oxidants including anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, resveratrol and tannins, and while I’m not going to even pretend I know what those are, they have been shown to boost focus, and even protect against cancer, heart disease, and dimensia.

  1. GREENTEA :

Green tea helps you focus for two reasons: one, it contains caffeine, and two, it contains l theanine. There is no doubt that caffeine helps you focus and improves your alertness. It’s an ingredient that’s been shown to increase alpha-wave activity, which increases tranquility and releases caffeine more slowly, instead of all at once, which can lead to you crashing. The two ingredients also combine to produce a better ability to focus attention, with improvement of both speed and accuracy, If you’re able to handle the caffeine content, introducing green tea into your diet is pretty much a no-brainer.

  1. NUTS BEST BRAIN FOOD :

There are so many nuts and they are all good for you. Packed with nutrients, fats, and a tiny bit of carbohydrates, these foods are nature’s energy packages. They are easy to eat, easy to incorporate into other healthy foods, and easily portable.

WALNUTS:

 They promote natural waste removal processes in the brain.

Boost anti-inflammatory activity in brain.

Cause faster processing and information storing.

Have antidepressant effect

PISTACHIOS :

Good source of vitamin B6

Can lift your mood

ALMONDS :

Improve memory

Enhance problem solving skills

Increase attention

If you notice on the list above, there isn’t a single processed food, pill, or artificial ingredient. So far, man has not met the perfect of nature. We just can’t figure out how it all works together to get something that nutritious in such a delicious package. So, we say the worst brain food is anything packaged. If it’s in a package, it’s not food, it’s a food-product. It’s a subtle difference, we can eat food-products, we just can’t get nutrition out of them.

If you aren’t getting nutrition out of your foods, your brain isn’t getting the nutrition it needs to really think. Plus, processed foods are packed with chemicals, preservatives, pesticide residues, and possibly unknown GMOs. Your body has to fight these and that means less energy for your brain.

Pregnancy ke doran phenytoin sodium tablet lene ka kya side effects h. Ye tablet leni bhi jaruri h.
You should not use phenytoin if you also take delavirdine (Rescriptor), or if you are allergic to phenytoin, ethotoin (Peganone), fosphenytoin (Cerebyx), or mephenytoin (Mesantoin). If you are pregnant, DO NOT START TAKING this medicine unless your doctor tells you to. Phenytoin may cause harm to an unborn baby, but having a seizure during pregnancy could harm both the mother and the baby. If you become pregnant while taking phenytoin, DO NOT STOP TAKING the medicine without your doctor's advice.

Glutathione is a substance produced naturally by the liver. It is also found in fruits, vegetables, and meats. People take glutathione by mouth for treating cataracts and glaucoma, preventing aging, treating or preventing alcoholism, asthma, cancer, heart disease (atherosclerosis and high cholesterol), hepatitis, liver disease, diseases that weaken the body’s defense system (including AIDS and chronic fatigue syndrome), memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoarthritis, and Parkinson’s disease. Glutathione is also used for maintaining the body’s defense system (immune system) and fighting metal and drug poisoning. Glutathione is breathed in (inhaled) for treating lung diseases, including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, and lung disease in people with HIV disease. Healthcare providers give glutathione as a shot (by injection into the muscle) for preventing poisonous side effects of cancer treatment (chemotherapy) and for treating the inability to father a child (male infertility). Healthcare providers also give glutathione intravenously (by injection into the vein, by IV) for preventing “tired blood” (anemia) in kidney patients undergoing hemodialysis treatment, preventing kidney problems after heart bypass surgery, treating Parkinson’s disease, improving blood flow and decreasing clotting in individuals with “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), treating diabetes, and preventing toxic side effects of chemotherapy. How does it work? Glutathione is involved in many processes in the body, including tissue building and repair, making chemicals and proteins needed in the body, and for the immune system. So its found in our body as well as in some food items ,advisable not to take unnecessary supplementation if you are healthy.

I am 18 years old. I do not feel any weakness and even I have not got any disease. Coming to the problem, I feel like something walking on my skin. Something like an insect. But actually there is nothing there. I feel it only on parts above my throat such as on my head, behind my ears, and maximum between my eyes and ears. I am not able to figure out that what is going on with me. Am I feeling hallucinations or it is some kind of skin disease!
