Health benefits of Honey

Honeys that are darker in color are considered to have more antioxidants.

Honey is quite different from white sugar, it contains about 30% glucose and 40% fructose – two monosaccharide or simple sugars – with 20% other complex sugars. Honey also includes dextrin, a starchy fiber. This combination helps the body regulate blood sugar levels.
However, unlike white sugar where fructose and glucose are combined as sucrose and require an additional step in the digestive process, in honey, these two sugars are separate. Thus, the glucose acts as an instant energy source.

It contains many vitamins and minerals in small amounts. A list of these include: niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc.

Honey helps reduce constipation, bloating and gas.

The antioxidants in honey are a cholesterol fighter and have the potential to protect against heart disease.

There are no food preferences for pcod. Its an hormonal imbalance. Have a healthy balanced well spaced meal. Get your lh fsh ratio under control from a good gynecologist. Your period will be regular and weight under control.

Two months time is not the time period for you to get worried. Sometimes it take more time to conceive naturally. However you can always take support medicines suggested by your doctor. Have patience and here are some tips which can help: Tip #1: The biggest secret to getting pregnant faster is knowing when you ovulate (release an egg from your ovary). Think of the egg as a bull's-eye and the sperm as arrows. One of the arrows has to hit the bull's-eye in order for you to get pregnant. If you notice that you have irregular periods over the course of several months, pinpointing ovulation could be difficult. Ask your doctor for advice. Tip #2: Once you know when your egg will be released from your ovary, you can plan to have sex during your most fertile days: from three days before ovulation through the day of ovulation. (Starting a little sooner can't hurt; some women have gotten pregnant from sex that happened six days before they ovulated.) If you have a regular cycle of 28 days, days 12 to 16 days are said to be a woman's most fertile period counting from the first day of cycle. Tip #3: Sperm have their best shot at fertilizing an egg when they're healthy, strong, and plentiful. Several things can help your partner get his sperm supply in fighting shape: - Cut back on alcohol (studies show that drinking daily can reduce testosterone levels and sperm counts and raise the number of abnormal sperm) - Quit tobacco and recreational drugs (these can cause poor sperm function) - Eat enough of certain key nutrients – like zinc, folic acid, calcium, and vitamins C and D – that help create plentiful, strong, wiggly sperm - Avoid hot tubs, saunas, and hot baths, since heat kills sperm.

Unlikely. But she can always do a urine pregnancy test to confirm. More likely she has a tummy upset.

Unwanted 72 works in 95% cases if taken within 24 hrs. If you want to go for 100% then she should use oc pills like novelon or femilon to be started from day 2 of menses for 21 days. This is the best contraceptive available for any one and you can have sex as many time in that month. Hymen ruptures usually during first act of sex and causes minimal bleeding but it stops on its own and does not harm any one.

Dear , inferiority complex, low self esteem etc become part of life mainly because of your circumstantial experience. If you are able to understand your life and to learn your life, all these things automatically gets elated. I suggest you psychological counseling. Take care.

Hello Ms. Lybrate-user as you have already taken ipill chances of pregnancy is very meagre. And already you had bleeding days so all you can do is wait for periods to come. You may do pregnancy test and check to make you feel more relaxed that you r not pregnant. Practice safe sex thank you stree health.

10 BEAUTY TIPS I BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW !

1. Your skin should drink red wine. It's true, the antioxidants in red wine are easily absorbed and good for softening your skin! but before you fill a tub with it try smaller doses like a foot or hand soak. Or just cut a grape in half and rub it on your face then wash it off after 15 minutes.

2. Your salad fights wrinkles! plus you'll get healthy nails and hair with silicone-rich foods, eat romaine lettuce, spinach, cucumber, bell pepper, and tomatoes (with the skin on)

3. Honey heals & hydrates. Toss your lip balm and try this natural alternative!

4. Juice your hair! lemon juice combined with tea is great for oily hair. Do half lemon juice, half black tea and rinse through clean hair. The lemon works as a great astringent but doesn't ruin the ph balance.

5. Face off in your kitchen. Ever come home to an empty bottle of make up remover? don't panic! a small amount of olive oil on a cotton pad can gently remove the toughest makeup! (just be sure to remove any oil residue with a clean pad dipped in water.)

6. No stinky feet at tea time. Soak smelly feet in a black tea bath, tea's tannins are good at neutralizing odors.

7. Lemonade for your face! you don't need expensive creams and serums. Find a brighter complexion in your kitchen! just rub a lemon on your face (but don't go out in the sun right away!)

8. Oli-free, eggsactly. Paint a thin layer of egg white after washing your face to fight shine!

9. Be a potato head! potato slices erase dark circles and lighten the skin around your eyes. Next time you want to erase a hangover reach for a potato instead of concealer. (also cucumbers reduce puffiness because they are colder than the skin.)

10. Nail this tip! before a blood red mani or pedi soak your nails in a mixture of lemon juice and warm water to reduce discoloration. The rest of the lemon add to your tea to help boost your immune system, help digestion and clear up your skin!

Yes you can conceive at this age also but first you need to get these tests done i.e. AMH and USG for antral follicle count done and back with the reports.

I am assuming you are talking of contraction like pains. She needs to take adequate rest at night about 8 hrs sleep and at least 2 hrs rest in the afternoon. Also she needs to ensure that she has regular bowel habits and has no urinary symptoms. If the pains continue however she should personally see an obstetrician to be safe.

You are very slim. I advise you to take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take lots of water daily. Avoid garlic and red chilly at home and avoid non veg and eggs. Take more of milk, curd, paneer, cheese, desi ghee in diet and less of proteins. Follow this and give feedback.

Is he also interested to have a baby. The semen he gives you, flows out immediately or later. No harm. Anal sex is bad. Don`t entertain. If he has a lack of interest in sex or lack of erection at sex contact a sexologist.

Hi Manas. Tetanus shot is given only in second trimester onwards. It is never recommended to be taken in 1st trimester, that too between 4-8 weeks as the organogenesis or baby's organs are forming at this time.
