Tips To Lower Higher Uric Acid Levels

High uric acid in the blood stream leads to gout and arthritis. To prevent gout must have a good diet and refrain from sugars, alcohol and food like meat, poultry, seafood and pulses. Uric acid is not eliminated easily from the system and leads to inflammation and joint pains with gout.

  • WATER – Water helps in flushing out all toxins so one should drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day , water will also eliminate the excess uric acid n the system.
  • CHERRIES- Cherries are rich with anti-inflammatory substance which is known as anthocyanins this help bringing down high uric levels. The anthocyanins helps from not letting uric acid crystallize and settle in joints which are the reason for arthritis and gout. Cherries will help reduce its level.
  • BERRIES – Strawberries and blueberries should be added to the diet as they have a lot of inflammatory properties which will fight against higher uric levels.
  • APPLES – Have one Apple a day, Apple has Malic acid which neutralizes uric acid. Add apples in your diet.
  • CELERY SEEDS – Most popular home remedy is to add celery seeds in your diet this is also a great neutralizer for high uric levels.
  • FRENCH BEANS JUICE- This is especially given to people suffering from gout as it is a natural neutralizer for high uric acid content and gives relief from inflammation.
  • VEGETABLE JUICES- Drink a lot of vegetable juices like carrot juice, cucumber, beetroot about 300ml of these juices should be taken daily. They are a natural neutralizer to high uric levels.
  • FOODS RICH WITH VITAMIN C- Foods rich in Vitamin C are great to neutralize high uric levels , vitamin C disintegrates uric acid and forces it out of the body through urine . Guava , Kiwi, Sweet Lime , capsicum , lemon , tomatoes are great source of Vitamin C.

Red Meat Vs White Meat

There are lobbies which go to the extent of global warming to pursue a vegetarian diet but studies confirm, man is omnivorous by nature and meat is a great source of proteins and vitamins. The debate is  what meat is really good for you Red Meat or White Meat. The primary difference between the two is its fat content.

Fat Content-
White meat is leaner meat with proteins and lesser fat content although red meat has more fat and also more iron, zinc and minerals. Although red meat contains more proteins and vitamins it is related to higher incidences of certain cancers.

B Vitamins
The iron in Red Meat is called Heme iron. It is more easily digestible by man then iron got from a vegetarian diet. Because of the absorbable iron in a plant source vegetarians have found to be with Vitamin B deficiency.

White meat considered healthier
White meat is considered healthier than red meat in a diet and it all boils down to the constituents of the meat red meat is made of muscle fiber known as ‘ Slow Twitch “ which means it  is used more for steady exercises like walking on the other hand white meat is made of muscle fiber known as ‘Fast Twitch ‘ , which gives us sharp bursts of energy . Red meat carries more oxygen has a higher level of myoglobin on the other hand white meat has lesser oxygen and lower levels of myoglobin.

HealthRisks-
Red meat has higher levels of myoglobin which is related to a higher risk of certain kinds of cancer.  White meat has lower levels of myoglobin so you could say better but it is good to have a balanced diet as both red meat and white meat have benefits and disadvantages.

Side Effects of Late Night Dinner

Masters Of Science In Dietetics And Food Service Management Msc. (DFSM), Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE), Advanced Clinical Nutrition Program, Post Graduate Diploma In Clinical Nutrition And Dietetics PGD, Bachelors Degree In Applied Nutrition Bhsc
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Side Effects of Late Night Dinner

Obesity today is a universal problem around the globe and you would be surprised that a lot of it is caused by unhealthy habits. Let us look at some reasons to avoid late dinners

Weight Gain 

When you eat during the day you are generally active and this digests all the food properly but when you eat a late dinner it has more chances to increase your weight as weight increases when your metabolism is thrown out of gear during your sleeping hours , which tends to increase your weight. As during your sleep time your metabolism slows down.

Fluctuation in sleep cycles  

A very important aspect of eating a late dinner is it affects your sleep cycle which can have a disastrous impact on your waking state. You will find you will also find it harder to get to sleep and the late dinner just throws your entire body mechanism out of rhythm. Also, if you’re late dinner includes a lot of cookies and cakes as a dessert, it will only increase your weight it is better rather than a late dinner to drink a glass of milk which will also assist you to sleep.

Increased Excretion Needs 

If you have a late dinner your food will have to digest while you are asleep and your metabolism is slow, so you will need to go and ease yourself to the restroom at regular intervals at night which also affects your sleep pattern. If you really are hungry at night you should consider eating foods high in fiber as these will take a long time to digest and won’t affect your sleep at night. 

It is finally important to follow a regular routine as the body works like a clock and needs its input at regular intervals if you indulge in late night dinners it throws the entire clock haywire and will have a disastrous effect on your overall well- being.

7 Best Foods for Boosting Memory!

Memory is something which runs the world. Memory boosting techniques are most common among the children. All parents would want their children to have good memory. Adults also loose the capacity of remembering things when they are under stress.

Here are some of the foods which would help boosting the memory:

1. Cabbage: Cabbage head is not the insult as you may perceive. It is a good source of folic acid which helps boost memory.

2. Eggs: Eggs are the primary source of protein and are said to increase the memory. A good omelet on any day for breakfast is a good deal to improve your memory.

3. Broccoli: A little sister of cauliflower broccoli is a good source of protein again. Broccoli can be eaten in boiled state as a side or stir fried way as salad. Add some veggies to stir fried broccoli with salad dressing, you get fantastic salad which not only boosts the taste of your palette but also boosts your memory.

4. Strawberries: The favorite most of all, eating strawberries a day would surely improve your memories. Strawberries can be eaten in any way. Shake it up with little milk and chia seeds, you get a fantastic shake which has refreshing taste and goodness of strawberry.

5. Red Wine: Many people swear by this quality of red wine which would help them boost memory. It is said that wine which is older is the better for improving memory powers. Consuming wine with food is the best way to have it.

6. Salmon: Definitely not an option for vegans and vegetarians, salmon is considered to be the best source of protein and hence boosts memory power.

7. Almonds: Indians swear by almonds for their capacity to boost memory. Soaked and eaten as first thing in the morning peeled almonds are the best source of protein too.
