Grapes - A Fruit You Must Have!

Grapes - A Fruit You Must Have!

As the New Year begins, the one fruit which is available in abundance are grapes. The black/purple and the green variety, seeded and seedless, are all over the place. Given the weather slowly changing from winter, they seem like the best thing to beat the summer heat. And yes, they are. Not just for overall health, they are also great for the skin and hair. Read on to know more.

Benefits of grapes for skin:

  1. When the sunscreen lotion does not help much and sunburn happens, the one of the best home remedies is to apply mashed grapes for about 30 minutes. The grapes are rich in antioxidants (proanthocyanidins and resveratrol). They reduce the damage caused by ultraviolet radiation and also reduces cell damage caused by excessive skin exposure.
  2. Rubbing the grape pulp on the face for about 20 minutes can help reverse and control antiaging better than any chemical treatment. It reduces the effect of free radicals which lead to fine wrinkles and dark spots.
  3. Grapes are also rich in vitamins C and E which helps in making the skin supple and improves skin tone and reduces scars.

Benefits for hair:

  1. If hair loss scares you, apply a paste of seeded grapes. The linoleic acid and grape seed oil can add strength and prevent hair fall.
  2. Grapes can also be mixed with fenugreek and chickpeas for use on hair to improve life and lustre of the hair and add volume.
  3. The vitamin E and antioxidants also help improve scalp blood circulation, fight dandruff, reduce itchiness, and improved hair health.

Benefits on overall health:

  1. Relieves headache: The various antioxidants in the grapes help in relieving the headache almost instantaneously. Eat them up or drink if you have a headache, even migraines.
  2. Improves digestion: They improve digestion and reduce digestive problems, thereby curing indigestion. They also are shown to help in controlling colon cancer.
  3. Good in diabetes: Diabetic patients need not be worried about the sweet grapes. The pterostilbene in them helps lower sugar levels, and in the long run, it can also prevent the onset of diabetes.
  4. Cholesterol control: The polyphenols help in controlling heart disease by reducing plaque formation.
  5. Eye health: The reduced oxidation process and controlled inflammatory process helps in improving eye health, especially in the retina, which is full of proteins.
  6. Potassium in Plenty: 100 g of grapes contains about 200 mg of potassium, which is a treasure. It improves blood pressure (by countering sodium), and also controls cholesterol and reduces salt intake.
  7. Brain health: The antioxidants like revasterol help in improving blood flow and helps in controlling Alzheimer’s and improving memory. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.

Appetite Hormones - How Do They Impact Your Eating Habits?

Certificate In Food / Nutrition

Appetite Hormones - How Do They Impact Your Eating Habits?

Are you aware of the function of appetite hormones in your body? Appetite hormones or hunger hormones are the hormones which are responsible for making you feel hungry, and also account for a decreased appetite, which is common for all of us at times.

Leptin and Ghrelin are the two primary appetite hormones, which are produced in your body.

About Ghrelin
Ghrelin is your body’s appetite increasing hormone, which gets released in the stomach. It is responsible for signaling hunger to your brain. It is said that the ghrelin levels in your body play an important role in how quickly you feel hungry after having a meal. Usually, the ghrelin levels increase before you eat. This signifies that you are hungry. They go down for almost three hours after your meal. It is believed that ghrelin plays a more important role in the regulation of your body weight, which is a much more complex procedure.

About Leptin
Among the two appetite hormones, leptin accounts for being the appetite suppressing hormone. It is considered to play a more important role than ghrelin in maintaining the energy balance of your body. It is also believed that leptin is responsible for the regulation of ghrelin. Leptin helps in signaling the brain that your body has enough energy in the form of body fat. It is considered that the more fat you have, the more amount of leptin is present in your blood. However, the level varies based on factors such as when you took your last meal, and your sleeping patterns.

How to control your hunger hormones?
There are certain ways by which you can control your appetite hormones. It can be done primarily by avoiding food items that contain high fat. When you eat, messages are transmitted to several parts of your body, indicating that you have had enough. While consuming fatty food, this system does not send messages as effectively. Consuming fat makes you consume more calories, which in turn lets you store fat and gain fat.

It has been proven that either a diet which is rich in good carbohydrates or a diet which is high in protein, suppresses your ghrelin production more effectively than a high fat diet. It is important for you to get proper sleep for controlling your appetite hormones. Studies prove that sleep deprivation is associated with an increase in your ghrelin levels, appetite, and hunger, compared to people who get 10 hours sleep on a regular basis. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.

Only healthy food and healthy life style increase the immunity power. Cut out sugar. Refined sugar weakens the immune system and feeds opportunistic microorganisms in the body.

Bad Effects Of Tea

BAMS
Ayurveda, Sonipat
Bad Effects Of Tea

चाय पीने के दुष्प्रभाव* ☕

दो सौ वर्ष पहले भारतीय घर में चाय नहीं होती थी, लेकिन आज कोई भी घर आये अतिथि को पहले चाय पूछता है। ये बदलाव अंग्रेजों की देन है। कई लोग ऑफिस में दिन भर चाय लेते रहते है, यहाँ तक की उपवास में भी चाय लेते है । किसी भी डॉक्टर के पास जायेंगे तो वो शराब - सिगरेट - तम्बाखू छोड़ने को कहेगा, पर चाय नहीं,
क्योंकि यह उसे पढ़ाया नहीं गया और वह भी खुद इसका गुलाम है. *परन्तु किसी अच्छे वैद्य के पास जाओगे तो वह पहले सलाह देगा चाय ना पियें।*

चाय की हरी पत्ती पानी में उबाल कर पीने में कोई बुराई नहीं परन्तु जहां यह फर्मेंट हो कर काली हुई सारी बुराइयां उसमे आ जाती है।

हमारे गर्म देश में चाय और गर्मी बढ़ाती है, पित्त बढ़ाती है। चाय के सेवन करने से शरीर में उपलब्ध
विटामिन्स नष्ट होते हैं। इसके सेवन से स्मरण शक्ति में दुर्बलता आती है। 

1. चाय का सेवन रक्त आदि की वास्तविक उष्मा को नष्ट करने में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाता है।

२. दूध से बनी चाय का सेवन आमाशय पर बुरा प्रभाव डालता है और पाचन क्रिया को क्षति पहुंचाता है।

 ३. चाय में उपलब्ध कैफीन हृदय पर बुरा प्रभाव डालती है, अत: चाय का अधिक सेवन प्राय: हृदय के रोग को उत्पन्न करने में सहायक होता है। 

 ४. चाय में कैफीन तत्व छ: प्रतिशत मात्रा में होता है जो रक्त को दूषित करने के साथ शरीर के अवयवों को कमजोर भी करता है।

५. चाय पीने से खून गन्दा हो जाता है और चेहरे पर लाल फुंसियां निकल आती है।

६. जो लोग चाय बहुत पीते है उनकी आंतें जवाब दे जाती है. कब्ज घर कर जाती है और मल निष्कासन में कठिनाई आती है।

७. चाय पीने से कैंसर तक होने
की संभावना भी रहती है।

८. चाय से स्नायविक गड़बडियां होती हैं, कमजोरी और पेट में गैस भी।

९. चाय पीने से अनिद्रा की शिकायत भी बढ़ती जाती है।

१०. चाय से न्यूरोलाजिकल गड़बड़ियां आ जाती है।

 ११. चाय में उपलब्ध यूरिक एसिड से मूत्राशय या मूत्र नलिकायें निर्बल
हो जाती हैं, जिसके परिणाम स्वरूप चाय का सेवन करने वाले
व्यक्ति को बार-बार मूत्र आने की समस्या उत्पन्न हो जाती है।

१२. इससे दांत खराब होते है. - रेलवे स्टेशनों या टी स्टालों पर बिकने वाली चाय का सेवन यदि न करें तो बेहतर होगा क्योंकि ये बरतन को साफ किये बिना कई बार इसी में चाय बनाते रहते हैं जिस कारण कई बार चाय विषैली हो जाती है। चाय को कभी भी दोबारा गर्म करके न पिएं तो बेहतर होगा।

१३. बाज़ार की चाय अक्सर अल्युमीनियम के भगोने में
खदका कर बनाई जाती है। चाय के अलावा यह अल्युमीनियम भी घुल कर पेट की प्रणाली को बर्बाद करने में कम भूमिका नहीं निभाता है।

१४. कई बार हम लोग बची हुई चाय को थरमस में डालकर रख देते हैं इसलिए भूलकर भी ज्यादा देर तक थरमस में रखी चाय का सेवन न करें। जितना हो सके चायपत्ती को कम उबालें तथा एक बार चाय बन जाने पर इस्तेमाल की गई चायपत्ती को फेंक दें। 

१५. शरीर में आयरन अवशोषित ना हो पाने से एनीमिया हो जाता है. - इसमें मौजूद कैफीन लत लगा देता है. लत हमेशा बुरी ही होती है. 

१६. ज़्यादा चाय पिने से खुश्की आ जाती है.आंतों के स्नायु भी कठोर बन जाते हैं।

१७. चाय के हर कप के साथ एक या अधिक चम्मच शक्कर ली जाती है जो वजन बढाती है।

१८. अक्सर लोग चाय के साथ नमकीन, खारे बिस्कुट,पकौड़ी आदि लेते है. यह विरुद्ध आहार है. इससे त्वचा रोग होते है.।

१९. चाय से भूख मर जाती है, दिमाग सूखने लगता है, गुदा और वीर्याशय ढीले पड़ जाते हैं। डायबिटीज़ जैसे रोग होते हैं। दिमाग सूखने से उड़ जाने वाली नींद के कारण आभासित कृत्रिम स्फूर्ति को स्फूर्ति मान लेना, यह बड़ी गलती है। 

२०. चाय-कॉफी के विनाशकारी व्यसन में फँसे हुए लोग स्फूर्ति का बहाना बनाकर हारे हुए जुआरी की तरह व्यसन में अधिकाधिक गहरे डूबते जाते हैं। वे लोग शरीर, मन, दिमाग और पसीने की कमाई को व्यर्थ गँवा देते हैं और भयंकर व्याधियों के शिकार बन जाते हैं।

21. चाय का सेवन लिवर पर बुरा प्रभाव डालता है।

I am in a dilemma!
Mr. S lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The product mentioned has a good amount of carbs and proteins. It might help in building muscle mass provided you do regular exercise for over 1 hour plus. Just taking a supplement is not going to add muscle mass. If you are only looking at good protein supplements then eggs 2 to 3 a day are the best. Along with good exercise schedule one can build a good muscle mass. Thanks.

Olive Oil Vs Coconut Oil - Which One Should You Use?

MBBS
General Physician, Bhubaneswar
Olive Oil Vs Coconut Oil - Which One Should You Use?

When you just came to the conclusion that olive oil is healthy for your health, suddenly, you may have read another study result that says that coconut oil is best for your health. No doubt, you are puzzled and confused which one to take. In this article, we will try to give you some idea of the healthy aspects of coconut oil and olive oil and some hard facts about them.

Let’s find them out.

1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
119 Calories 116 Calories
14 (g) Total Fat  14 (g) Total Fat
1 (g) Saturated Fat  12 (g) Saturated Fat
9.8 (g) Monosaturated Fat  0.8 (g) Monosaturated Fat
1.4 (g) Polysaturated Fat 0.2 (g) Polysaturated Fat    
0 (mg) Cholesterol 0 (mg) Cholesterol

 

 

 

 

 

 


Goodness of Coconut Oil - The Saturated Fats

  1. Acts as an Antioxidant and Reduces Oxidative Stress: Virgin coconut oil consists of some antioxidants, like polyphenols and flavonoids. In the process of oxidative stress, the blood vessels in our body and heart get affected that leads to heart attack. These antioxidants keep us safe from such heart ailments.
  2. HighTemperature Resistant: It means that, if you cook in high temperature in coconut oil, you won’t get your food smoked. Coconut oil is a saturated fat, and it is high temperature resistant.
  3. Reduces Hunger: It keeps you away from those irritating hunger pangs when you consume foods cooked in coconut oil.
  4. Improves metabolic rate: Coconut oil increases metabolic rate that ultimately helps to reduce our waist size.

Goodness of Olive Oil - The Monounsaturated Fats

  1. Heart Friendly Fat: Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fats. The American Heart Association has certified these fats as a heart friendly fat.
  2. Lowers LDL Cholesterol: Olive oil helps in lowering the low density cholesterol level that is known as bad cholesterol in our body.
  3. Some Essential Substances Present in It: Olive oil is rich in vitamin E and polyphenolic compounds. These two components are antioxidants that help in reducing the systemic inflammation level in our body.

Now the point is: Which Oil Is Better for Your Health?

The Verdict
So, from the table and discussion, it is clear that both coconut and olive oil are good for our health. But none of them are miracle fats. You need to consume both oils in small amounts. For cooking foods that need high temperature, like roasting, stir frying, you can use coconut oil as it has high temperature resistance. On the other hand, for simple cooking, use olive oil. But don’t use extra virgin olive oil for cooking, as heat at higher levels can destroy the Vitamin E and Polyphenol compounds in the Olive Oil.
