Lettuce

Lettuce, belonging to the daisy family Asteraceae is an annual plant that is generally cultivated as a leaf vegetable. Lettuce is not only an essential ingredient of salads, but it is also used in soups, sandwiches and other preparations. Lettuce was originally consumed mostly in Europe and America but by the late 20th century, it had spread to other parts of the world as well. Lettuce is rich in nutrients and has been consumed for its dietary and medicinal benefits since a long time.

Nutritional Value of Lettuce

Romaine lettuce is far more beneficial to our health in comparison to iceberg lettuce. Lettuce is very low in calories but is an excellent source of Vitamin A and betacarotenes which have anti-oxidant properties. It also contains good amounts of Vitamin K, folates and Vitamin C that are beneficial for our body. The minerals present in lettuce are calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and zinc. It also contains essential vitamins like thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6 and Vitamin E.

Health Benefits of Lettuce

Helps to prevent insomnia

Cutting or breaking lettuce leaves reveal a white liquid called lactucarium that helps to deal with insomnia. This liquid has the relaxing and sleep inducing properties of opium but does not possess its side effects. If you are having trouble sleeping, you could try to have a few leaves of lettuce.

Protects against diseases

Lettuce possesses antioxidants that act against the free radicals in our bodies which are formed due to cellular metabolism. These radicals tend to harm the healthy tissues and cells. They may even cause the development of cancer by mutating healthy cells into cancerous cells. Antioxidants work to protect us against this.

Protects against cancer

Lettuce leaf extracts can prevent the spread of leukemia cells and breast cancer cells. Lettuce also contains flavonoids which help to protect the body from lung and oral cavity cancers. Thus incorporating lettuce in your diet can help to fight different types of cancer.

Helps improve body metabolism

It is of vital importance that our body properly metabolizes the food that we intake. Otherwise, it will not be possible for us to get the required energy that is required to function properly. Due to the presence of iron, magnesium and potassium, lettuce intake helps to improve the metabolic processes in our body. Lettuce also contains Vitamin B-complex which aids our metabolism.

Prevents heart disease

High levels of bad cholesterol in our body can lead to cardiovascular diseases. Lettuce contains Vitamin C and beta-carotene that work together to prevent the artery walls forming as plaques which can block off and break the blood flow. Thus it prevents the oxidation of cholesterol and thus protects our heart against diseases.

Prevents harm to neuronal cells

Extracts from lettuce, due to its significant role in glucose or serum deprivation, help to prevent death of neuron cells. Neurons are brain cells that make physical connections and help to make memory. Lettuce thus helps to prevent onset of diseases like Parkinson’s which is caused due to the death of neuron cells.

Has antimicrobial properties

Lettuce has antimicrobial properties and helps to fight the harmful microbes that may cause various diseases. This is due to the presence of terpenes and cardenolides which work to defend our body against bad microbes.

Helps control anxiety

Lettuce has anxiolytic properties that help to control anxiety. Lettuce has a role in neurological health process and so helps to deal with mental problems such as depression.

Helps to remove toxins

Minerals present in lettuce help to remove the toxins from our body. This helps to maintain the acid balance. Removing the toxins help us to remain healthy as only the beneficial substances are left behind.

Prevents inflammation

Lettuce extracts have anti-inflammatory properties due to the presence of biocatalysts like lipoxygenase and carrageenan. Thus various ailments resulting from inflammation can be avoided by including lettuce in your diet.

Uses of Lettuce

Lettuce can be consumed in a number of ways and it forms a part of the cuisine of many cultures. Raw, fresh lettuces are often used in burgers, salads, spring rolls and salads. Lettuces can also be used with garden peas, green beans as well as with seafood like shrimp and prawns. Lettuce is surely a source of energy and helps to keep your body hydrated. Moreover, it is beneficial for your skin and hair as well.

Side-Effects & Allergies of Lettuce

Lettuce crops are sometimes sprayed with pesticides and hence it is advisable to wash the vegetable properly before consuming it. Consumption of lettuce may result in allergic reactions in some people. So it is better to check whether you are allergic or not before consumption.

Cultivation of Lettuce

Lettuce was first cultivated by the ancient Egyptians thousands of years ago who utilized the seeds to produce oil and consumed the leaves. The Greeks and Romans later cultivated the crop. Different types of lettuce were produced in the 16th – 18th century period. In medieval Europe, lettuce was believed to have medicinal qualities.

Lettuce grows well in spring and fall in most regions and its seeds can tolerate a little frost. It requires a temperature range of 45 – 65 degrees Fahrenheit to grow properly. Loose and moist soil is necessary.

Please requests I am very weak and my weight is not gaining and I works in hospital as a staff nurse.

Eat foods that are rich in calories like pulses, cereals, meat, bread, rice, dry fruits, and nuts. U can also follow by adding vegetables like French beans, broccoli, Chinese cabbage, carrots, lettuce, spinach, asparagus, pumpkins, and eggplants to your diet. Add a healthy portion of red meat to your diet too if you are non vegetarian. But keep in mind not to overdo it. The aim is to add weight, not cholesterol! You can even add olive oil in generous quantities to your salads. Another way to add calories to your diet is by increasing the consumption of dairy products. Dono€™t cut back on the fat content in your milk. Do not ask for low-fat curd, paneer, cheese, at the store. Make sure you consume a full calorie dairy product. DIET CHART TO GAIN WEIGHT - Breakfast: • One, big glass of orange juice or banana shake • A bowl of oatmeal to which dried nuts like almonds, walnuts and raisins are added—using skimmed or low-fat milk and some sugar • 2-3 whole eggs, scrambled or boiled if non- vegetarian • 2-3 slices of multi-grain bread coated with a bit of butter Pre-Lunch/Mid-day Snack: A bowl of yogurt made from low-fat milk Or A few granola bars that are fortified with raisins and sesame seeds Or Whole fruits like apples or chiku or mango Lunch: • At least one form of animal meat like chicken or meat, i.e. One to two servings.(if non- vegetarian) • 4-5 rotis made from whole wheat or multi-grain flour, smeared slightly with ghee. • A big bowl of dal • A cup full of boiled rice • If eating meats is a problem, supplement it with cottage cheese made from tofu or low-fat milk Early Evening Snack: The better choice is a glass of low-fat milk to which an energy-inducing mix has been added. You can choose from a variety of malted mixtures. Try to add more of the malted mix rather than using synthetic sugar. You can use a few high-fiber biscuits or cookies to dip and munch upon. Dinner Options for Gaining Weight Dinner needs some planning since you need to end your day on a calorie high. You should combine at least one type of green vegetable along with a dal or a serving of chicken or fish with some gravy. It is better to have more of rice for dinner rather than rotis from the perspective of gaining weight. Ensure you ask the person cooking meals to use lentils with higher calorie content. This includes black grams and kidney beans. Options for Post-Dinner Snack • A few bites of dark chocolate with high cocoa content • A smoothie of fruits and yogurt • Fruits like strawberries, apples, mangoes or grapes I hope the above diet chart will help you. We have good medicines in homeopathy to gain weight. For further details, consult us or book an online appointment.

Body Inflammation (Soojna) - 7 Foods That Can Help Reduce It!

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), C.R.A.V

Body Inflammation (Soojna) - 7 Foods That Can Help Reduce It!

Inflammation or soojan in the body can make it difficult for you to follow your daily routine. According to Ayurveda, this is caused by an imbalance of the pitta dosha. As the pitta dosha increases, the heat in the body also increases leading to inflammation and other issues. To reduce the pitta dosha, one must consume foods that are not hot or warm in nature and increase the consumption of foods that have a cooling effect.

7 amazing foods that can really help:

  1. Turmeric: Turmeric contains an important anti-inflammatory compound known as curcumin. This can help reduce inflammation associated with arthritis, arteriosclerosis, asthma, and cancer. It also reduces the effects of inflammatory oxidants such as nitric oxide. Turmeric can be used to flavor foods or steeped into a tea.
  2. Flax: Nuts such as flax and pumpkin seeds are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. They also help cool the body. Some other nuts and seeds that you could include in your diet are almonds that have been soaked in water overnight and peeled, sunflower seeds, coconut and popcorn without salt. Avoid nuts such as brazilian nuts, chia seeds, cashew nuts, walnuts and sesame seeds as they can increase body temperature.
  3. Garlic: Garlic is a wonder food that is very important in a pitta pacifying diet. Along with other nutrients, garlic contains allicin that has strong anti-inflammatory properties. Consuming garlic on a regular basis can also help protect a person against heart diseases by reducing inflammation in the veins and arteries.
  4. Ginger: According to Ayurveda, ginger is considered as an universal medicine. This herb has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce inflammation. It also aids in digestion and promotes healthy blood circulation. The best way to consume ginger to fight inflammation is to steep it in a tea.
  5. Whole grains: To reduce the pitta dosha, you should include plenty of dry, sweet whole grains in your diet. This includes barley, oats, quinoa, wheat and rice. These foods are good sources of fiber and proteins. They also have a low glycemic index and help maintain body temperature.
  6. Leafy vegetables: Vegetables that reduce the pitta dosha are usually sweet and astringent. These vegetables are best eaten raw at mid-day when the digestive system is functioning at its peak. Lettuce, kale, leeks, collard greens and wheat grass are some of the vegetables that you must include in your diet. On the other hand, avoid spicy vegetables like green chillies, onions, and radishes.
  7. Tomatoes: Tomatoes contain lycopene that helps reduce inflammation in the lungs. This vegetable can be consumed raw or juiced but when cooked, the lycopene amount increases. However, avoid raw tomatoes as they can irritate the digestive system.

Hair Fall & Premature Gray Hair - Ayurvedic Tips That Can Help!

Are you looking for a natural and effective treatment for hair fall and premature graying of your hair? You should consider Ayurveda for dealing with these conditions without the fear of harmful side effects on your body. Hair fall refers to the condition in which excessive hair loss is experienced from your scalp. According to Ayurveda, these conditions are said to arise from ‘pitta dosha’ imbalances. The continuous disturbance of pitta can lead to hair loss and graying of hair. Consuming substances that enhance your pitta dosha results in premature gray hair. There are various Ayurvedic remedies for dealing with these conditions. The most important ones are as follows:

Panchakarma therapy

  • Panchakarma therapies such as Nasya, Virechana, and Shirodhara are effective for dealing with gray hair.
  • Virechana helps in balancing your vitiated pitta diosha.
  • Shirodhara using certain medicated oils also helps in reducing hair fall and hair graying.
  • You should use neem, shadbindu, and yashtimadhu oil for Nasya.
  • Regular hair massage using til oil that is made of amla and neem is essential for hair loss prevention.
  • You may apply ghee at the bottom of your feet with a bronze vessel before going to sleep. This is useful in converting your gray hair to black.

Diet

  • You have to avoid oily, spicy, and heavy food, along with coffee and tea.
  • Keep away from refined foods, junk food, carbonated drinks, alcohol.
  • Increase your intake of fresh fruits, vegetables.
  • You should prepare and drink a vegetable juice from lettuce, capsicum, alfalfa, and carrot.

Massage

  • Massaging your scalp is ideal for maintaining healthy hair, and preventing hair fall.
  • While massaging, the thumbs should be placed at the back of your ears, and the scalp should be rotated under your fingertips. Your scalp has to be moved along with your fingers.
  • After this, you should apply pressure against your scalp with your palms.
  • This is important for proper blood circulation, and the blood supply to your hair roots gets increased.

Yoga

  • It is considered that the nerve endings present under your fingernails are connected to the roots of your hair.
  • Rubbing your nails against each other helps in improving the blood circulation on your scalp.
  • The Prasanna mudra involves keeping hand near on your chest and rubbing your nails of eight fingers against one another for about 10 minutes. This should be undertaken regularly for 30 days. This helps in slowing down hair fall, reduces gray hair, and split ends.

Natural Alternatives That Work Better Than Vitamin Supplements

Here’s a list of foods that are better than taking vitamin supplements:

1. Trouts

Fatty fish such as trout are great sources of vitamin d and omega-3 fatty acids, which promote brain function and fight inflammation.

2. Mushrooms

Include mushrooms them in your diet four times a week and see your vitamin levels shoot up. They can be cooked, baked or pan-fried and turned into a tasty and healthy delight. In order to reap more benefits, you can sun dry them before consumption. Mushrooms can naturally produce vitamin d when exposed to sunlight.

3. Green veggies

Fresh green veggies are loaded with essential nutrients and the key point to remember is that the lesser you cook them (keeping the crunch and texture intact) the more beneficial they can be. So load up on spinach, methi leaves, lettuce, mustard greens and kale.


4. Crabs

Not only do clams have the highest concentration of vitamin b12 of any food, they’re also filled with potassium. Three ounces of either canned or fresh clam contains 534 mg of potassium, 15% of your daily requirement.

5. Sardines

You may be surprised to learn that these little fish are packed with calcium—3 ounces has the same amount as 8 ounces of milk. Sardines also contain vitamin d and omega-3 fatty acids. If you buy them canned in oil, be sure to rinse before cooking to get rid of excess salt.

Diabetes - 5 Tips To Control It!

Diabetes - 5 Tips To Control It!

Diabetes is a lifestyle disease that can easily be managed by controlling our diet. Along with being aware of your sugar intake, your diet should help you lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. However, this does not mean you have to resign yourself to a lifetime of tasteless food.

Here are a few diet tips that can help manage diabetes: 

  1. Choose high fiber carbohydrates: Carbohydrates are an essential element of the daily diet but have a huge impact on blood sugar levels. Hence, it is important to pick the right carbohydrates. Your diet should have a limited amount of refined carbohydrates such as white bread, pasta, soda etc. and should be focused more on high fiber carbohydrates such as brown rice, sweet potatoes, rolled oats and bran flakes that are digested slowly. This prevents your body from producing excessive insulin.
  2. Be sweet smart: The key to indulge your sweet tooth and controlling diabetes is moderation. Abruptly, removing sugar from your diet can make you crave for it. Instead, gradually lower your sugar intake. If you can't miss out on the dessert at the end of a meal, reduce the amount of carbohydrates in your meal. Adding healthy fats like peanut butter, yogurt or nuts to your dessert can also slow down the digestive process and thus control blood sugar level.
  3. Keep a food diary: When you are diabetic, it is very important to eat at regular intervals. Eating frequent, small meals are often better than fewer large meals. Try and maintain a food diary to keep track of your calorie intake. This helps identify problem areas of where your body is getting excessive calories from. When you are aware of the calories associated with things you eat, it is easier to cut down on snacks and replace unhealthy snacks with healthier options.
  4. Choose fats wisely: It is impossible to completely cut out fats from your diet. While some fats such as liquid vegetable oils and commercial baked goods are unhealthy, others have important health benefits. Unsaturated fats are the healthiest and safest. Replacing your vegetable cooking oil for olive oil and biscuits with nuts are easy ways to make smart choices with your fat intake.
  5. Go green: Green leafy vegetables are low on carbohydrates and high on nutrients. Thus, make them an integral part of your meal. Vegetables like kale, spinach, lettuce, etc. can be eaten raw or cooked. Along with being nutritious, they also add texture and color to your meals, thus making them more visually appealing.
