Top 12 Foods In Omega-6

General Physician, Gorakhpur
Top 12 Foods In Omega-6

Eating omega-6 foods usually isn’t a problem for most people, but if you need to boost your omega-6 levels, there are plenty of great foods to do it with.

Omega-6 foods: The best omega-6 essential fatty acid (linoleic acid) foods include corn puffs, sausage, butter, beef, eggs, safflower oil, sunflower seed oil, and brazil nuts, among many others. These levels are based on 100-gram servings, which is an exceedingly large amount for some of these foods, particularly the oils. On average, you should consume roughly 3, 000 milligrams of this fatty acid every day.

  • Safflower oil: A 100-gram serving contains nearly 75 grams of linoleic acid.
  • Sunflower seeds: There are 34 grams of this fatty acid (linoleic acid) in a 100-gram serving of sunflower seeds.
  • Butter: There are 37 grams of this polyunsaturated fat in this serving of butter.
  • Beef: This contains less than 300 milligrams of omega-6.
  • Eggs: There are 3500 milligrams of this fat in a 100-gram serving.
  • Sausage: More than 4000 milligrams are in a 100-gram serving.
  • Mayonnaise: There are over 40 grams of omega-6 in each 100-gram serving.
  • Flax/linseed oil: There are two grams of omega-6 per teaspoon of this oil.
  • Sesame seeds: There are more than 20 grams of omega-6 in 100 grams of these seeds.
  • Pumpkin seeds: These seeds also have over 20 grams of this linoleic acid.
  • Walnut oil: Nearly 53 grams of omega-6 are present in 100 grams of this oil.
  • Brazil nuts: These nuts have over 27 grams per 100-gram serving.
  • Other foods: Other foods rich in omega 6 include chocolate chip cookies, chicken, grape seed oil, evening primrose oil, borage oil, blackcurrant seed oil, canola oil, hemp oil, soybean oil, cottonseed oil, poppy seed oil, and acai berries.

What is omega-6?

Omega-6 fatty acids (linoleic acid) are a group of roughly a dozen different polyunsaturated fats that are commonly found in vegetable products, particularly vegetable oils. However, they are found in small to moderate quantities in many other foods as well. Experts recommend consuming an even 1: 1 ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids for optimal health.

Different fats within the omega-6 classification can have both pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory properties. When it comes to the benefits of this family of fats, they are important for the following:

  • Promote brain development
  • Improve nervous system health
  • Soothe symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis
  • Support bone health
  • Manage cardiovascular health

Even Old Brain Can Make New Cells

Even Old Brain Can Make New Cells

Healthy old men and women can make just as many new brain cells as young people, says a study published in the journal cell stem cell. Previous studies have said that new brains cannot produce new neurons and growth of new brain cells seize after a certain age. This is the first kind of study which counters that belief.

“We found that older people have similar ability to make thousands of hippocampal new neurons from progenitor cells as younger people do,” said lead author maura boldrini, associate professor at columbia university. “we also found equivalent volumes of the hippocampus (a brain structure used for emotion and cognition) across ages. Nevertheless, older individuals had less vascularization and maybe less ability of new neurons to make connections.”

The researchers analyzed the hippocampus from 28 previously healthy humans aged 14-79 who had died suddenly. Most of the previous studies have been performed on rodents and primates whose ability to generate new brain cells declines with age. However, this is the first time the researchers have analyzed human brain immediately after death. They looked for the newly formed neurons and the blood vessels within the entire hippocampus region.

The researchers from columbia university and new york state psychiatric institute found that older humans form fewer new blood vessels within brain structures. Older people also have limited capacity to differentiate and self-renew cells. This may be because of the reduced cognitive-emotional adaptability in old age. “it is possible that ongoing hippocampal neurogenesis sustains human-specific cognitive function throughout life and that declines may be linked to compromised cognitive-emotional resilience,” said boldrini.

This study, according to researchers, brings hope to keep the brain healthy and well-functioning even in old age. The researchers are keen to find more about the aging brain. They would continue to explore how neural cell proliferation, maturation, and survival are regulated by hormones, transcription factors, and other inter-cellular pathways.

Omega-6 To Omega-3: What You Need To Know?

Omega-6 To Omega-3: What You Need To Know?

The debate over omega-3 vs omega-6 fatty acids remains a topic of interest in nutritional circles as our dietary habits continue to evolve.

Omega-3 vs omega-6:

Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are closely related but have very different effects on the body.

Types

  • Omega-3 comes in 3 types – alpha-linolenic acid (ala), eicosapentaenoic acid (epa), and docosahexaenoic acid (dha). Ala is found in vegetable oils, while epa and dha are found in marine oils (e. G, fatty fish).
  • Omega-6 comes in 11 different types, the main ones being linoleic acid, gamma-linolenic acid, and calendic acid, among others.

Benefits

  • Omega-3 fatty acids are able to reduce inflammation, diabetes, and bone mineral density loss. They can also help with anxiety and various types of cancer.
  • Omega-6 fatty acids are necessary for proper brain function. They can also help treat rheumatoid arthritis and minimize symptoms of adhd.

Ratio

  • An appropriate ratio of these two fats is 1:1, but in modern times, that ratio is often skewed to as high as 10: 1 (omega-6: omega-3, respectively).
  • Balancing these fats is essential for overall health and to prevent inflammation, as omega-6 can be pro-inflammatory.
  • A balanced ratio ensures that your body’s enzymes are evenly distributed to metabolize both types of fats.

Food sources

  • The best food sources of omega-3 fatty acids include walnuts, sardines, salmon, spinach, eggs, brussels sprouts, and chia seeds.
  • Omega-6 fatty acids are in hempseed oil, flaxseed oil, seeds, nuts, grapeseed oil, and other vegetable oils.

Risks

  • Modern diets tend to have far more omega-6 than omega-3 in your diet, which can lead to cardiovascular problems.
  • People with conditions like diabetes, psoriasis, eczema or arthritis should be cautious when consuming too much omega-6.

Which is better?

Having an even blend of these two fats is ideal, but generally speaking, omega-3 fatty acids have more positive effects on the body.

What Is Raynaud's Disease?

MBBS,CCA,DCA,AASECT,FPA,AAD,F.H.R.SM.I.M.S
General Physician, Gorakhpur
What Is Raynaud's Disease?

Raynaud’s disease is an unusual condition that is actually a symptom of something else, perhaps more serious.

What is raynaud’s disease?

Raynaud’s disease is a hyperactivation of the sympathetic nervous system, resulting in an extreme constriction of the blood vessels, therefore slowing down circulation and resulting in localized hypoxia (a lack of air/blood to cells). When these secondary blood vessels are unable to push blood through, the skin loses its color and sensation.

Types

The disease is classified into two types, namely:

1. Primary raynaud’s: it is also known as primary raynaud’s disease when the condition is idiopathic, meaning that it is not caused in conjunction with any other disease.

2. Secondary raynaud’s: the condition iscalled raynaud’s phenomenon, raynaud’s syndrome or secondary raynaud’s when there is an underlying disorder such as systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, and frostbite, among others.

Causes -

There are a number of conditions that can result in low blood or oxygen flow to the body’s extremities, but the causes of raynaud’s include:

1. Genetics: raynaud’s disease stands alone in that is often hereditary.

2. Smoking: smoking can cause the disease to develop or can exacerbate any symptoms since it is a natural vasoconstrictor.

Symptoms

The most common symptoms of raynaud’s disease are:

  • Numbness or discoloration in the extremities of your vascular system (fingers and toes)
  • Emotional stress
  • Long, brittle nails

There are two ways in which this condition manifests:

1. Low temperature: when the skin is exposed to cold, and the temperature of the body drops, the skin turns pale or white, evidence of a loss of blood to the area. This is usually in the hands, fingers, toes, feet, and earlobes.

2. Low oxygen: when the oxygen supply is depleted, the skin turns blue.

In both instances, when blood or oxygen is returned, the color flushes back to red, often accompanied by swelling and more pain as the tissues and cells regain their functionality. This can be compared to a foot “falling asleep” or getting “pins and needles”. The numbness is quickly replaced by painful tingling for a few moments. This effect lasts even longer with raynaud’s disease.

what is acid reflux diet

MBBS,CCA,DCA,AASECT,FPA,AAD,F.H.R.SM.I.M.S
General Physician, Gorakhpur

Going on an acid reflux diet is often the best strategy for improving the acidity levels in your gut and relieving your symptoms.

What is the acid reflux diet?

The acid reflux diet is designed to help improve digestive health, eliminate the symptoms of acid reflux, and boost your immune system to prevent this type of stomach disorder. The amount of acid your stomach produces is largely dependent on the foods that you eat, so shaping your diet to avoid acid-producing foods is essential. The more common name for acid reflux is heartburn, a condition in which digestive juices enter the esophagus, which can result in a burning sensation. Some of the other common symptoms of acid reflux include chest pains and trouble digesting certain foods. This diet can re-set your stomach and also establish healthy dietary habits, which will prevent these symptoms in the future.

Diet for acid reflux

When following an acid reflux diet, there are many foods that are safe to eat and can help remedy these symptoms.

  • Foods to include
  • Ginger
  • Oatmeal
  • Aloe vera juice
  • Melon
  • Chicken
  • Fish
  • Banana
  • Parsley
  • Celery
  • Avocados
  • Olive oil
  • Pears
  • Egg whites
  • Foods to avoid
  • Egg yolks
  • Bacon
  • Fatty cuts of meat
  • Sour cream
  • High-fat dairy products
  • Junk food
  • Ice cream
  • Creamy salad dressings
  • Gravy
  • Garlic and onions
  • Spicy foods
  • Chocolate
  • Caffeine
  • Citrus fruits

Lifestyle changes to avoid acid reflux

Aside from altering your diet, there are also some lifestyle changes that can help to remedy the symptoms acid reflux, including quitting smoking, consuming less alcohol, and trying to lose weight.

Alcohol

Consuming alcohol beyond moderation is bad for your health in a number of ways, but when it comes to acid reflux disease, it can worsen the symptoms and bring on more frequent attacks. In other words, cut back on the booze and you’ll feel a lot better.

Clothing choice

Wearing tight and restrictive clothing, particularly around the waist or belt areas, can make the symptoms of acid reflux worse, as your stomach will be unnaturally squeezed.

Smoking

For various reasons, smoking can make it more difficult for your stomach to keep acids out of your esophagus, so making a concerted effort to quit can go a long way towards your comfort.

Losing weight

Extra weight means more pressure on yourstomach, which can worsen your symptoms, so try to shed some pounds.

Meal structure

Eating smaller meals more often will reduce the workload of your gut and help to improve your acidic balance.

Swollen Feet During Pregnancy

MBBS,CCA,DCA,AASECT,FPA,AAD,F.H.R.SM.I.M.S
General Physician, Gorakhpur
Swollen Feet During Pregnancy

There are many physical symptoms of pregnancy and having swollen feet during pregnancy can be worrying for some women. If you notice this symptom during pregnancy, it is critical to understand why it happens, and how to treat it.

Swollen feet during pregnancy

Swollen feet during pregnancy, caused by increased fluid levels in the body, is natural and common, particularly later in your term and during the third trimester. Swelling in different parts of the body is generally referred to as edema, and edema in the feet, while you are carrying a child, is completely natural. There are different reasons for this, but primarily swelling occurs because your body retains more water during pregnancy. Furthermore, the increased pressure in your pelvic region due to the presence of the baby can make the return of blood from your legs slower. This will result in an accumulation of blood in your feet and ankles, which will be countered with increased fluid levels, leading to swelling.

That being said, other factors can also increase your risk of having swollen feet during pregnancy, such as preeclampsia. Although swelling can occur at any time during pregnancy, you are far more likely to experience this type of swelling in the third trimester, as the baby has grown by this time. In terms of extra weight being carried around and the pressure on the pelvic region, the swelling will likely be more in the later stages of pregnancy.

Treatments for swollen feet during pregnancy

There are quite a few effective treatments for this type of edema, including stretching, wearing proper shoes, putting your feet up more, and performing foot exercises, among others.

1. Stretching

If you make stretching a part of your daily routine, you will be able to increase circulation to the extremities and prevent your ankles, heels, and calves from becoming stiff. This can greatly reduce the pain and discomfort, and drive better circulation, which will reduce swelling in the feet.

2. Shoe choice

Many people wear incorrect shoes, which can cause additional edema in the feet, as well as inflammation in the joints. It can even alter the way you walk, which can further cause discomfort or pain in the hips and knees. Comfortable shoes are a must during pregnancy, including the use of insoles, which can reduce inflammation that will make the swelling worse.

3. Elevation

If you regularly put your feet up, it will help to reduce the swelling, accumulation of blood, and fluid build-up in your feet.

4. Stay hydrated

Word of caution:One of the biggest reasons for edema and swelling in the feet is lack of water in the body. Dehydration will cause your blood vessels to narrow, which will make swelling even worse in the extremities. On the other hand, cut down on your salt intake to reduce water retention, as a lot of water can also cause swelling.

5. Foot exercises

To reduce cramping and stimulate better circulation, there are some great exercises for pregnant women suffering from swollen feet. Begin by flexing the foot up and down 20 times, followed by rotating the foot in a circle 8-10 times, then do the same thing in reverse. Repeat this with both feet in the morning and evening for best results.

Word of caution: while swelling is normal, if it becomes extreme or is accompanied by lightheadedness, blurred vision, headache or vomiting, you may be suffering from preeclampsia. This can be a serious condition and should be discussed with your doctor as soon as possible. Preeclampsia may require you to induce pre-term labor to ensure your and baby’s safety. Swelling in the ankles and feet is normal, but if the swelling appears in your hands or face, see a doctor immediately.

Drinking ayurvedic tea has been in practice for thousands of years, and can provide a wide range of benefits to those who regularly consume it.

What is ayurvedic tea?

Ayurvedic teas are traditional herbal teas prepared in ayurvedic medicine, the traditional indian approach to health and wellness. Ayurvedic teas come in three main types, vata tea, pitta tea, and kapha tea. These three teas consist of different herbal elements and they are believed to detoxify and cleanse the body in very specific ways. These ayurvedic teas are famed for being able to increase health and longevity, along with a number of otherhealth benefits. Provided you aren’t specifically allergic to any ingredients and have spoken to your doctor about any dangers of taking these herbal tonics, these teas should be completely safe to consume.

Ayurvedic tea benefits

The most impressive health benefits of ayurvedic tea include its effects on memory, digestion, and weight loss, among many others. Despite being a caffeine-free beverage, it can still help to improve the metabolism and optimize fat-burning by the body, and can also improve digestive efficiency, preventing the build-up of toxins in our gastrointestinal system. The anti-inflammatory nature of these types of tea is also excellent for chronic conditions, as well as preventing chronic inflammation, which can lead to oxidative stress and damage from free radicals.

Various studies on these teas also show that they can have effects on cognitive health and lower your risks of neurodegenerative diseases, such as alzheimer’s disease and parkinson’s.

How to make ayurvedic tea?

As mentioned, the three main types of ayurvedic tea are vata tea, pitta tea, and kapha tea. Depending on who is preparing these blends, the amounts of these herbal ingredients may vary, but the basic recipes rarely do. As with any other herbal tea, these herbs are allowed to steep in water for varying amounts of time before being served.

  • Vata tea ingredients
  • Fennel
  • Cloves
  • Ginger
  • Cinnamon
  • Licorice
  • Stevia
  • Pitta tea ingredients
  • Ginger
  • Cardamom
  • Fennel
  • Roses
  • Licorice
  • Stevia
  • Kapha tea ingredients
  • Cloves
