1. Caffeine free

The fact that peppermint tea does not contain caffeine may be a boon or a bane.

If you want to enjoy a cup of tea that won’t add to your caffeine content, peppermint tea is a good choice as is any other herbal tea.

But if you need a tea that keeps you awake at night, you need to go for your traditional cup of tea or coffee. In fact, peppermint tea has a soothing effect and is said to be good for a good night’s sleep.

2. Relieves gas and bloating

If you are suffering from gastric problems, you should immediately add a pack of peppermint tea to your kitchen shelf.

Peppermint tea removes gassiness and relaxes muscles, thus facilitating the movement of gas curing flatulence problems.

3. Reduces heartburn and indigestion

The ability of peppermint to relax muscles also improves the flow of bile juice in the stomach, thus improving digestion.

It acts like acid reflux and thus can cure indigestion.

4. Nausea and vomiting

As already mentioned above, it makes you feel comfortable at night and thus help fight morning sickness. Morning sickness is common among pregnant women.

Peppermint tea is antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory in nature. It relaxes muscles and thus reduces instances of vomiting and nausea.

Peppermint tea is said to be a natural decongestant. It can also help in providing sinus relief.

The season of constant colds and flu has begun, so let peppermint tea become part of your evening routine.

6. Immune system

Bacteria are the cause innumerable diseases which include fever, cough and cold and the worst part is that unknowingly we are exposed to millions of them. Be it in the air, water or the food we intake.

But don’t you worry. Peppermint tea will come to your rescue as it is said to have anti-bacterial properties. It builds immunity against a variety of illnesses.

It is a mild source of vitamin b, potassium, calcium.

7. Bad breath

While peppermint tea being anti-bacterial kills the bad odour causing germs, the strong mentholated flavour represses the foul smell leaving your breath fresh and clean.

8. Weight loss

Peppermint tea can help you shed kilos. It may sound unbelievable, but the aroma of peppermint and some of its organic compounds can help you cut on your diet and subsequently obesity.

9. Curbing stress

The new talk of the town is “stress”. It is an indispensable part of the busy and ambitious lives we live these days. In fact, a certain level of stress is required to keep you going. But when stress starts interfering with your lives in a negative way, something somewhere has gone gravely wrong and needs to be paid attention.

Peppermint is an excellent stress buster especially because of the menthol it possesses. Being anti-inflammatory, it reduces blood pressure and body temperature which are the consequences of stress and thus allows you to relax.

Boost a Hard Manhood With Vitamin B5

Boost a Hard Manhood With Vitamin B5

Any man who wants to ensure his handsome member becomes firm when he wants it will look to vitamins, minerals, nutrients and anything else that might help ensure proper function. Fortunately, there are many nutrients out there that the body needs to help this hard manhood happen, and they are easy to get. One of the best tenets of good member care includes putting all the proper foods into the body in order to get the goodness from the inside out; but what about putting those ingredients on the body, to get the best of those vitamins and nutrients from the outside in?

That's what men can do with a good male organ health crème, especially if it contains certain ingredients the body needs on a daily basis, including vitamin B5.

What does vitamin B5 do?

Vitamin B5 is one of the most important vitamins in the "B" family. It provides the body with numerous benefits, such as helping the body turn food into energy; obviously this is a vitally important function that benefits every part of the body, including the hard manhood. But it also serves as a mood enhancer and energy-booster, especially since it helps the body create red blood cells, which allows the body to carry more oxygen around to every organ.

Besides that, it does other great things when ingested. It boosts the immune system, which helps keep a guy feeling great. It helps regulate blood sugars to keep the body at a constant level and might help avoid that 'crash' in the afternoon that most people dread. Vitamin B5 helps the body use proteins, fat and cholesterol, which can all combine to boost that energy even further.

But what about a healthy member?

  • Obviously ingesting vitamin B5 is important for the overall function of the body, but what about the member? There's a big reason why B5 matters - because it helps boost male hormone, which in turn helps improve a man's sensual function. This is especially important as a man ages, because his body produces less male hormone over the years. A stronger hit of vitamin B5 every year can then help ensure a man is doing all he can to increase and improve his male hormone levels.
  • A man can also put the vitamin B5 directly on the member for even more targeted benefit. A good male organ health crème that contains this healthy vitamin can help it sink into the skin and deliver a boost of energy to where it's needed most.
  • It's also important to remember one key fact about vitamin B5 - it is water-soluble, which means that it gets absorbed and used by the body and then expelled through urine. It doesn't 'build up' in the body's tissues. That means that it must be ingested every single day in order to keep a steady supply going.
  • Fortunately, a guy can get vitamin B5 through numerous foods he probably already eats on a daily basis, such as eggs, beef, legumes, mushrooms, and some types of fish, such as tuna or salmon. A guy can also turn to a multivitamin if he worries about getting enough, as this supplement provides an ample dose.
  • In addition, a man can boost his vitamin B5 intake from the outside in by using a high-quality male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Using a crème every day can provide not only B5 right to the area where it's needed most, but the body can absorb lots of other wholesome ingredients, including vitamin C, alpha lipoic acid, L-arginine, vitamin A, and much more. A powerful Shea butter and vitamin E base helps ensure the delivery of the crème is smooth, soothing and enjoyable.

Hair tips for better hair growth and prevent hair fall - 1. Having a healthy diet - Having a diet which is full of protein, vitamins and minerals is an important aid towards having healthier hair growth. Consume food which is high in vitamin A, B, C and E. Vitamin B-complex is another very effective vitamin for promoting hair growth. For the minerals, try and consume iron, copper, zinc, selenium and magnesium. Walnuts, beans, flax seeds are rich in omega 3 fatty acids which are great for hair growth You could also have some juices of fruits and veggies, like orange, grapefruit or carrot, lettuce and beet 2. Castor oil has a high content of vitamin E and essential fatty acids, like omega 9. This is why it is an essential ingredient which helps to promote hair growth. Castor oil is too thick to be applied directly, which is why you must dilute it with oil like coconut, almond or olive. Massage your hair with the oil mix and leave it on for 30-45 minutes. You could also slightly get it heated. Shampoo your hair and condition as regular. 3. Regular scalp massage - When you massage your scalp, it promotes blood circulation which in turn stimulates our hair follicles. Along with that, deep condition the hair once a week with warm oil (use jaborandi oil) treatment or a deep conditioning hair mask. 4. Staying stress-less - Stress is one of the worst factors which contribute to hair loss. Stress disrupts the regular hair cycle and boosts strands of hair to fall out of place. You need to calm your senses and promote lesser stress! For handling stress, try and mediate, do breathing exercises or practice other relaxation techniques 5. Egg masks - Egg is an important ingredient from promoting better hair growth. They are full of protein and are added on with minerals like iron, sulfur, selenium, zinc, etc. Use an egg mask once or twice a month for promoting healthy hair and improved growth 6. Vitamin and herbal supplements - Supplements of folic acid, biotin, flaxseed oil, are some common elements for hair growth. Supplements of folic acid and biotin will have Vitamin B complex which aids to better hair growth. 7. Nourish hair with aloe vera - Aloe vera improves hair growth and protects from hair loss. You also reduce dandruff and restore the natural shine. Take fresh aloe vera gel and add some lemon juice to it Apply and let it soak for 20 minutes Shampoo the hair (with arnica shampoo) and repeat once a week 8. Be hydrated, have proper sleep, do oil your scalp twice a week for more queries and homeopathic medicines, contact us.

If you go through the ingredients of Grenade, you will notice Green Coffee extract. This is what raises your basal metabolic rate. This increases your energy levels so you must utilise it by increasing the intensity of your workouts. However, it is contraindicated in people with hypertension and heart disease. So please meet a cardiologist and get yourself a proper medical fitness evaluation before taking such fat burners. Ideally these burners are used by athletes for about 3-4 weeks when they want to do high intensity workouts. You will also notice high levels of urea and uric acid in your sweat which obviously means you need much more water intake during this period. Diet also plays a big role.

How to Tell a Partner About Penis Infections?

How to Tell a Partner About Penis Infections?

Every man wants to avoid a penis infection, and that's part of the reason most men adhere to very good penis care regimens. Avoiding sexually transmitted diseases is one of the main reasons a man uses a condom at each and every encounter (or if he doesn't, he knows he should!). But sometimes, despite a man's best efforts, he could wind up with a penis infection. Some of these can be easily treated, but others will be with him for life, and can dramatically change how he lives his life in the future.

One of the most unpleasant parts of a penis infection is having to tell former and current partners about the condition. These individuals deserve to know about what is going on so they can get themselves tested and take other steps to protect their own health. But for the person who has to tell them, breaking the news is definitely not an easy matter.

Here are some tips to help the man who must tell a former or current partner about sexually transmitted diseases that he might have shared with them.

1) Be absolutely sure. Don't tell them just on a hunch that a disease might be present. Have the tests, then have the results in hand when making that call.

2) Call or tell them in person. Though it might be tempting to send an email, it's always best to tell them in person, if possible, so they can ask questions immediately. If in-person won't work, call them. And if that won't work, try texting them with a request to talk - now.

3) Don't lay blame. Odds are that if a man has a sexually transmitted disease, he's not entirely sure where it came from. If there was only one partner, then obviously it could be clear - but even so, never lay blame on another person when calling to tell them the news. The idea is to get them concerned for their health and get them to get tested, not to make them feel defensive or ashamed.

4) Get the word out fast. Not only do they need to know, they need to know yesterday - so make sure to get the word to them as soon as possible. This can help them get the care they need much sooner, and can prevent them from passing it on to someone else if it turns out they do have the sexually transmitted disease.

5) Come prepared with answers. There will be many questions, of course, and most of them need to be answered by their doctor. But a man might be able to provide some insight to the partner when he mentions the disease. For instance, a guy who has been diagnosed with gonorrhea can reassure their partner that it can be cured, as long as they get to the doctor quickly and take the medication as directed.

6) Be ready for emotion. The very idea of a sexually transmitted disease can make someone feel anxious, depressed, angry, horrified, ashamed, defensive and many other emotions - sometimes all at once! And when that emotion hits, they are likely to vent on the most convenient target, which happens to be the guy who just called them with the bad news. So be prepared to listen to what they have to say yet stay calm and cool, even when dealing with that tidal wave of emotion.

Finally, a man should take every step possible to make sure he never has to make that kind of phone call or visit again. He can do this by practicing even better penis care than he has in the past, including always wrapping up the member when it's time to get busy.

And of course, daily care matters as well. He can help ensure a strong, healthy penis with a good penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). This crème should contain a plethora of protective ingredients, such as L-arginine for better blood flow and oxygenation, alpha lipoic acid to fight free radicals and vitamin A to eradicate bacteria.
