Black Tea

Black tea is a specific type of tea which is more oxidized than other teas like green tea, oolong tea and white teas. Black tea is generally stronger in flavor than the less oxidized teas. Black tea is made from leaves of the shrub Camellia sinensis. Generally, unblended black teas are named after the region in which they are produced. Often, different regions are known for producing teas with characteristic flavors.

Nutritional Value of Black Tea

Black tea contains 2% to 4% caffeine, which affects thinking and alertness, increases urine output, and may reduce the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. It also contains antioxidants and other substances that might help protect the heart and blood vessels. Black tea has very few to no calories or nutrients.

Health Benefits of Black Tea

Mentioned below are the best health benefits of Black Tea
Health Benefits of Black Tea

Improves oral health

Consumption of black tea can help protect against dental cavities, plaques and tooth decay. It can also help freshen your breath. Black tea possesses antibacterial and antioxidant properties that prevent staphylococcus infections. Moreover, the fluoride present in black tea inhibits dental carries.

Eliminates free radicals in the body

Free oxygen radicals are produced as a result of changes in metabolism, or external influences such as smoking, pollution, etc., which leads to an overload of free radicals in the body. Free radicals are generally very toxic for the body. Black tea contains antioxidants that help neutralize and flush out these free radicals.

Prevents formation of kidney stones

Kidney stones are formed as a result of increased excretion of crystal forming substances such as oxalate, calcium, and uric acid in the body. Drinking black tea can significantly reduce the risk of formation of kidney stones.

Aids in weight loss

Obesity is one of the root causes of diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. Similar to green tea, daily consumption of black tea can also aid in weight loss, if consumed along with making necessary lifestyle changes. Black tea helps reduce visceral fat by reducing genes that induce inflammation. Since a prolonged period of inflammation in the body can induce obesity, by drinking black tea you can prevent inflammation-induced obesity.

Lowers cholesterol levels

High cholesterol levels are a result of an unhealthy lifestyle and bad food habits. A buildup of LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) can lead to plaque buildup in the arterial walls thereby limiting the blood flow, and leading to heart attack, stroke and ischemic attack. Drinking black tea on a regular basis can help lower bad cholesterol levels. Moreover, black tea has anti-hypercholesterolemia effect in people who are obese and prone to heart disease.

Keeps digestive tract healthy

Black tea is very effective in keeping your digestive tract healthy, and ensuring that it functions properly. Black tea polyphenols act as a prebiotic, which helps to increase the good gut bacteria. Plus, these polyphenols also prevent the growth of other harmful bacteria in the gut. Black tea can also help reduce stomach ulcers and colorectal, esophageal/stomach cancers.

Improves bone health

The strength of bones in your body begins to decline along with age. However, studies have proved that drinking black tea daily can significantly restore bone density. This is because black tea is an excellent substitute for calcium. It is for this very reason that drinking black tea regularly can help prevent the risk of fractures and osteoporosis in elderly people.

Boosts immune system

Black tea is rich in antioxidants which help destroy free oxygen radicals in the body. The oxygen radicals tend to mutate DNA and hamper normal cell function. This can lead to inflammation and activation of inflammatory pathways, which, in turn, can put the body in a state of stress. Black tea helps flush out the oxygen radicals thereby helping to restore normal cell and body functions and boosts immunity.

Lowers risk of diabetes

Diabetes is a disease that affects millions of people all over the world. This metabolic disease can be treated the most efficiently if it is checked in its early stages. Drinking black tea has been proved to lower the risk of onset of Type 2 diabetes. The catechins and theaflavins in black tea help make the body more insulin sensitive and prevents beta cell dysfunction.

Lowers risk of ovarian cancer

Cancer is a fatal disease that has claimed millions of lives. Similar to the catechins present in green tea, the theaflavins present in green tea can inhibit the proliferation of ovarian cancer cells. Studies have shown that there is a steady decline in ovarian cancer risk in patients who drink 2-3 cups of black tea per day.

Boosts heart health

The heart is one of the most vital organs, and healthy functioning of the heart is one the top priorities of the body. Black tea is rich in flavones, which help improve heart health. Drinking around 2-3 cups of black tea per day can reduce the risk of coronary heart diseases. Additionally, black tea is also associated with reduced ischemia, myocardial infarction and cardiovascular mortality.

Uses of Black Tea

Other than its use as a popular beverage, black tea is often used to help improve memory and mental alertness, and is also often used for treating conditions such as low blood pressure, Parkinson’s disease, ovarian cancer and breast cancer. Black tea has diuretic properties, which is why it is often used to increase urine flow. Black tea is also widely used to help prevent atherosclerosis, which is a hardening of the arteries. Research has shown that people who drink black tea seem to have a reduced risk of having their arteries becoming hardened. Drinking black tea can also help treat low blood pressure problems, as well as prevent osteoporosis.

Side-Effects & Allergies of Black Tea

Drinking black tea in moderation can have a huge variety of health benefits. However, excessive drinking can have a negative impact on health. High amounts of black tea can cause side effects due to the caffeine in black tea. These side effects can range from mild to serious and include headache, nervousness, sleep problems, vomiting, diarrhea, irritability, irregular heartbeat, tremor, heartburn, dizziness, ringing in the ears, convulsions, and confusion. The high content of caffeine in black tea can often cause excitability and nervousness, as a result of which black tea should always be drunk in moderate doses.

Cultivation of Black Tea

Black tea has its origins in China, where it is called ‘red tea’. Today, the vast majority of black tea consumed in the West is from India. Unlike in China where all tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant species, Indian tea is made from the native Camellia assamica species which has a higher yield, a stronger flavor and much higher levels of caffeine. Modern favorites like Darjeeling, Earl Gray and Orange Pekoe were developed by early British growers in India trying to inexpensively reproduce their favorite beverage from China. The tea plant can handle a light frost and even snow, but not heavy freezes or prolonged cold winters. It can thus grow from subtropical climates to tropical climates, but generally requires a fair amount of humidity and rainfall during the growing season. Although it can grow in hot tropical climates if they are sufficiently humid, the highest-quality teas mostly come from subtropical climates.

Hi lybrate-user, Sweating mainly helps us to control our body temperature and as we all know it is natural but what happens when you sweat more than usual, then it becomes a disorder. In medical language when we sweat more than the body requires then it is known as the Hyperhidrosis. Some herbal treatments you can try are as follows: 1. Lemon balm is the herb which mainly belongs to the mint family. They basically help our nerves to cool down and reduces body sweating. They are basically consumed in the form of the tea. 2. Black Tea - Black tea also contain tannins which can be applied to the affected skin as it decreases pore size. Apply some black tea on the affected area by using the washcloth. 3. Omega-3 fatty acids- Make sure that the food you consume should be rich in Omega 3 fatty acids. It will help in the growth of muscles and controls immune system and also helps to improve the ability to respond to thyroid hormones. 4. Chamomile Tea - This easily and widely available herb has many health benefits. One of them is helping to relax the mind and relieve anxiety, which may cause sweating. Regular consumption of this tea may give good results 5. Apple Cider Vinegar - This is an excellent remedy to follow if your child sweats a lot from the armpits. Mix a little apple cider vinegar with water and apply it with the help of cotton balls on the underarms before going to bed. Next morning, wash off with water and continue this method for some time until it shows result. 6. Potato - The effective method is using a potato. Cut the potato into slices and place them in areas where the child sweats a lot. Keep it there for a while and wipe the area with a damp cloth. Repeat the method as often as possible. 7. Relaxation Technique: Certain relaxation techniques like meditation, or some therapy like aroma therapy, may be helpful in reducing anxious behaviour and stress and restlessness. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Suffering From Stomach Bug - Things You Must Eat & Avoid!

Suffering From Stomach Bug - Things You Must Eat & Avoid!

Gastroenteritis or stomach flu is one of the commonest stomach infections in us, humans. It occurs due to infection by different viruses like the norovirus, which spread due to contaminated food. Its symptoms can be quite nasty- You may feel nauseous, have fever, fatigue, bloating, stomach pain, chills, diarrhoea and muscle aches and pains. And depending on the type of virus you have, stomach flu can last from one to 10 days. But is there a way to cull this stomach bug? Yes, more than one.

Read on to know more

  1. Drinking the right fluids is key to fast recovery: Fluids are critical for recovery from gastroenteritis because you’re losing vital body fluids through vomiting and diarrhoea. The right fluids are clear liquids like water and broth. Electrolyte containing drinks like sports drinks are pretty useful and so is ginger tea as ginger has anti-microbial qualities and helps with nausea. Peppermint tea helps calm your stomach. What not to drink? 
    • Coffee
    • Black tea
    • Chocolate
    • Any drink with caffeine is contraindicated when a stomach bug bites. Caffeine affects sleep and a good night’s sleep is important for a full recovery.
    • Alcohol should also be strictly avoided as it’s a diuretic and can dehydrate you further.
  2. Stick to BRAT dietThe BRAT diet i.e bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast should be your mainstay during stomach flu. The diet has foods that are super easy to digest, contain a lot of carbohydrates to give you energy and provide you nutrients which you’ve lost through vomiting and diarrhoea.
    • Bananas: Bananas are easy to digest and replace lost nutrients like potassium. They also strengthen stomach lining.
    • Rice: Avoid brown rice as it has too much fibre, but white rice is good for sensitive stomach and provides energy from carbohydrates.
    • Applesauce: Provides energy due to carbs and sugars, and also contains pectin to help control diarrhoea.
    • Toast: Avoid whole-wheat bread because fibre is difficult to digest. White bread is easier to digest.
    • What to avoid?
      • Milk and curd are both to be avoided as they are hard to digest.
      • Fibre containing foods: When your bowels are loose, you don’t need the extra fibre.
      • Salty and oily foods like rich curries.
      • Do away with tomato sauces, tomato-based dishes, curries, and chillies.
  3. Rest: Rest is required to fight off the stomach bug. It’s better if you reduce your activities during the day.
  4. Medications: Stomach flu lasts for a maximum of 10 days and medicines like antibiotics don’t help as they can’t fight a virus. You can take medicines to help control symptoms of the problem, but you should do so sparingly. Like you can take ibuprofen for fever, headache, or muscle aches. Tylenol can also relieve fever and aches and has fewer side effects than ibuprofen and is easier on your stomach.

Cure Sinusitis Naturally!

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Trivandrum
Cure Sinusitis Naturally!

The inflammation of the sinuses is a condition referred to as sinusitis. This can be caused by a number of factors including infection, allergies, air pollution, nasal polyps, septal deviation etc.

The symptoms of acute sinusitis may include - 

  1. Headaches 
  2. Pain over the affected sinuses 
  3. Stuffiness of the nose or Running nose 
  4. Fever 
  5. Loss of smell 
  6. Sore throat or cough 

Sinusitis is an uncomfortable condition on its own, but can also lead to a number of other complications. Ayurveda can be very effective in treating acute sinusitis effectively without side effects. Here are a few ways to treat sinusitis with Ayurveda:

  1. Steam inhalations - Steam is a decongestant that can successfully clear congestion and make sinusitis less painful. This can be done five to six times a day. If your sinus is causing excessive pain, this should be repeated regularly for at least a week. In cases of chronic sinusitis, you may even continue this form of treatment for two years. 
  2. Turmeric - Turmeric is one of the most effective cure for sinusitis and has been used in Ayurveda for centuries. One has to inhale the smoke generated when a turmeric stick is burnt. To do this take a piece of dry turmeric and dip in oil [coconut or gingely oil will do] and light it. When it starts burning put off the flame and you will see the at smoke is generated. Inhale this smoke through each nostril three times. repeat this twice daily for 3 days 
  3. Ginger-Garlic-Turmeric-honey-lemon recipe – Ginger, garlic and honey have powerful antimicrobial properties. Turmeric has anti bacterial and ad anti allergic properties. Lemon and ginger are powerful immune system boosters. A teaspoon of fresh ginger juice with garlic, turmeric and honey can help reduce the congestion caused by sinusitis. This should ideally be had early in the morning, as soon as you wake up and may be repeated in the evening. Similarly, drink warm black tea with lemon, ginger and honey several times daily. 
  4. Jala Neti - Neti is a yogic purification method and jala neti refers to purification by water. This is a simple technique that should be practiced daily to relieve problems related to sinuses. Fill a neti pot with lukewarm water and a little salt. Position the neti pot such that the spout is in one of the nostrils. Breathe through your mouth and tilt your head till the water starts flowing from one nostril to the other. Once the pot has been emptied, repeat the process with another nostril. This can be repeated any number of times. 
  5. Watch your diet - Ayurveda considers diet an important part of the treatment process. Avoid cold and oily food. Starting the day with a glass of luke warm lemon tea with honey is also said to be beneficial to sinusitis patients. Sweets, processed foods, dairy, liquor, carbonated drinks etc are other things to be refrained from when suffering from sinusitis. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Food Choices That Can Fight Penis Odor!

Food Choices That Can Fight Penis Odor!

Few things are as likely to ruin a guy's chances at a thrilling time in bed as removing the trousers, anticipating that a handsome manhood can make a proper impression - and finding that impression undercut by an overwhelming penis odor. Fighting penis odor is one of the most important components of successful penis care, so a guy should look into all possible options. One which he may not have considered: the food choices he makes.

Food and penis odor

Science has learned that food and diet can have a strong impact on almost all aspects of health, including penis health. The food a person eats can affect the specific aroma of the sweat that leaves the body. Since a great deal of penis odor is caused by the sweaty conditions of the crotch, it's easy to see why some foods might increase that odor. At the same time, diet impacts the odor associated with urine as well, and small droplets or dribbles of urine that dry on the penis can accumulate and add to an odor condition.

Many people who are concerned about food's impact on penis odor concentrate on those dietary choices that can create a bad smell - things like asparagus, garlic and fish. But it might be just as beneficial to look at some of the things that can prevent or improve penis odor instead.

1. Water. First and foremost, staying properly hydrated is one of the keys to fighting penis odor (or body odor of any sort). This might seem counterintuitive: if sweat causes penis odor, wouldn't drinking more water enable a person to sweat more? In fact, increasing water intake doesn't increase the amount of sweats. But more water does cause a greater dilution of the ingredients that can lead to odor. It also better helps the body flush out toxins more consistently.

2. Citrus fruits. Oranges, lemons, grapefruit - the citrus fruits tend to be a good friend to those with odor issues. The acids help to move water throughout the body, and the fibers in these fruit are useful in hurrying toxins through the expulsionary process.

3. Spinach and kale salad. Plant foods that are rich in fiber (such as spinach and kale) have the same fiber-based benefit as citrus fruits. By aiding foods through the digestive process, they eliminate their "overtime" in the body and keep the system fresher and less likely to accumulate odor that gets passed on to the penis and other body parts.

4. Tea. Either green or black tea can help keep the penis smelling better due to its high antioxidant content. There is also a lot of tannic acid in tea, and it is believed that this can help to control moisture in traditionally damp body parts - such as the penis.

5. Herbs. Fresh-smelling herbs like spearmint or parsley are often used to counteract bad breath; when digested, they can also help keep sweat from smelling as aromatic.

Wise food choices can go a long way to helping control unwanted penis odor. But diet alone cannot solve persistent problems, so a man should definitely make a first rate penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) a regular part of his penis health regimen. There are many crèmes out there, but a man should find one that includes vitamin A in its ingredient list. Vitamin A (also called retinol) is well known for antibacterial properties that help reduce penis odor while also preventing aging of penile skin cells. And while citrus fruits can help contribute vitamin C, a crème with that vitamin can focus its benefits directly on the penis, significantly aiding collagen production and improving penile blood flow.

Bleeding Gums After Scaling!

Bleeding Gums After Scaling!
  • Though bleeding from gums after deep scaling is normal in most of the cases and subsides after 2-3 hours without any conscious efforts, there are some patients whose gums tends to bleed more and often persists for longer than 72 hours depending upon severity of inflammation.
  • Prevention: when you face similar problem kindly inform your dentist. There is absolutely nothing to worry about. Just you have to prevent the clot to get dislodged from bleeding area. You can apply pressure gauze, black tea bag and can also use alums to rinse 3-4 times at home. 
  • Sometimes, those who are on blood thinner medications (aspirin) or anticoagulant therapy can also suffer with this problem. They should inform their dentist prior to undergo scaling.
