Natural Toothpaste

Nutmeg has antibacterial properties. It contains eugenol, which brings relief from toothache. It also helps in clearing the toxins from liver and kidneys. It prevents bad breath and oral probelms.

Promotes Digestive Health

The rich fibre content of nutmeg helps to assist the perstaltic movement throught the intestinal passageway. It induces the secretion of various gastric and intestinal juices that ease the digestive process. Since fiber can bulk up the bowel movements, it lowers the frequency and discomfort of constipation and other intestinal issues.

Treats Insomnia

Nutmeg has a high content of magnesium, an essential mineral in the body that checks nerve tension and anxiety pangs, and even stimulates the release of serotonin which creates a feeling of relaxation or sedation. This serotonin is changed to melatonin in the brain, which acts as a sleep inducer, relieving people with insomnia and restlessness at night. Nutmeg also has trace elements of narcotics,a small amount of which can help release various neurotransmitters which in turn helps induce relaxation and sleep.

Blood Pressure and Circulation

Copper is an important nutrient in nutmegs which helps to balance the blood pressure and consequently helps in the maintenance of heart rate.Potassium, prenet in nutmegs, is a vasodilator, which relaxes blood vessels, hence reducing blood pressure and lowering the strain on the cardiovascular system.

Anti oxidant properties

Nutmegs have antioxidant properties that are very beneficial in smooth functioning of the body. They provide antioxidants that prevent free radical formation, which otherwise is capable of triggering unwanted reactions in the body. These reactions may lead to many serious compound formations in the body and may even turn out to be cancerous.

Oral Health

Nutmeg contains active antibacterial components that helps to fight conditions like halitosis, also known as bad breath. It kills the bacteria that causes this bad breath condition and generally boosts the immunity of gums and teeth, thus imrpoving the oral health. This is why nutmeg and its extracts are commonly used in toothpastes and mouthwashes, particularly in organic or herbal varieties.

Cultivation of Nutmeg

Native to the Banda Islands in the Moluccas (or Spice Islands) of Indonesia, nutmegs are also cultivated on Penang Island in Malaysia, in the Caribbean, especially in Grenada, and in Kerala, a state formerly known as Malabar as the hub of spice trading, in southern India. Nutmeg trees are dioecious plants which are propagated both sexually (seeds) and asexually (cuttings or grafting). Sexual propagation yields 50% male seedlings, however these are unproductive. Grafting is the alternative preferred method of propagation. Epicotyl grafting (a variation of cleft grafting using seedlings), approach grafting, and patch budding have proved successful, with epicotyl grafting being the most widely adopted standard. Air layering is another alternative though not preferred method because of its low (35–40%) success rate.The first harvest of nutmeg trees occurs seven to nine years after planting, and the trees reach full production not before twenty years.

4 Ways To Reduce Sodium Consumption In Our Diet!

4 Ways To Reduce Sodium Consumption In Our Diet!

How to reduce sodium consumption through diet

Minerals and salts are important parts of our daily diets. These minerals play significant roles in the functioning of the human body but, if found in excess, they might adversely impact your health. One such mineral is sodium, which is abundant in most food sources.

Sodium is present in every food in the form of salt. Most forms of meat, canned vegetables and soup, junk food and pickles are some examples of food which are naturally high in sodium. Apart from this, any cooked food will have salt crystals within it. Medical research has shown that most people consume more sodium than what is recommended.

Ill-Effects of Sodium Intake in Excess

  • The most common problem caused by the excessive consumption of sodium is high blood pressure.
  • High blood pressure, apart from being the cause of strokes can also affect internal organs like kidneys and cause renal failure over time.
  • It can also be detrimental to the heart and be a contributing factor to heart conditions as well.

Here are some of the ways through which you can reduce sodium intake through changes in diet.

  1. Increasing the intake of fruits within the diet - Inclusion of more fresh fruits in your diet will reduce the amount of sodium consumption. Canned and processed fruits may increase sodium consumption and hence should be reduced.
  2. Changing to fresh unprocessed meats - Certain processed and packaged meats such as in snacks and fast foods should be avoided as they have high sodium content. Hence, consumption of fresh meat instead of processed meat is an effective way to reduce your daily sodium intake. If a food item keeps well in the fridge for days or weeks, that's a tip off that the sodium content is too high.
  3. Including more leafy vegetables in your diet - Leafy green vegetables such as kale, spinach, and celery have a lot of water and also help reduce the sodium intake in your body.
  4. Drinking plenty of water - Sodium levels can rise within the body when it is dehydrated. Thus, it is prudent to always keep your body hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
  5. Check food labels - Begin reading food labels as a matter of course. Sodium content is always listed on the label. Sometimes the high sugar content in a product like apple pie can mask the high sodium content so it's important to check every label for sodium content.
  6. Add spices - Add spices to your food. Instead of salt, try coriander, black pepper, nutmeg, parsley, cumin, cilantro, ginger, rosemary, marjoram, thyme, tarragon, garlic or onion powder, bay leaf, oregano, dry mustard, or dill. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

Acne - Ayurvedic Remedies For It!

Yauvan pidika or acne vulgaris is an inflammatory skin disorder which is prevalent in both males and females. When the sebaceous glands present on skin produce excessive sebum, the hair follicles present on skin get clogged leading to the formation of acne. According to ayurveda, kapha, pitta & rakta and meda or fat dhathu are responsible for producing acne.

Ayurvedic treatment aims to eliminate the problem from its root. Herbs like Lodhra (Symplocos racemosa), Manjishtha (Rubia cordifolia) and Kushta (Saussurea lappa) are known for their properties to reduce acne. Turmeric (Curcuma longa) and Chandana (Santalum album) are also effective in treating acne. The application of Jaiphal (Myristica fragrans) and Khas-Khas (Vetiveria zizanioides) is believed to provide satisfactory results. Neem (Azadirachta indica), Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia) are known for their blood purifying properties, which can lessen the occurrence of acne and pimple in the long run.

The following are some of the ayurvedic remedies for treating acne:

  1. To reduce the growth of pimple, rub powder of jamun (Syzygium cumini) seed and apply it on the pimple.
  2. The peel of orange has medicinal properties that can be used effectively in the treatment of pimple. Make a paste of orange peel powder and rose water; apply it on your face on a regular basis. It is an effective remedy that cures acne and improves the skin tone.
  3. To achieve an immediate result, apply a paste of lodhra (symplocos crateigodies), vach (acorus calamus) and dhania (coriander). Improvement will be noticed within 7 days.
  4. A paste of red chandan (red sandalwood) and jaiphal (nutmeg) are also effective in reducing the appearance of acne and pimples.
  5. Apply a paste of masoor dal (red lentils) with milk, ghee and camphor on your face. It reduces the appearance of acne and clears the scars which are left behind.
  6. Prepare a paste of lemon, kalaunji (seeds of fennel flower) and milk. Apply it on your face on a regular basis before going to bed. Wash your face with lukewarm water in the morning. This remedy ensures speedy disappearance of acne.
  7. Make a mixture of nimbu (lemon), extracts of tulsi (basil) and black kasundi (coffee pods), dry it in sun and apply the mixture on face. It is a powerful remedy that is known to cure the problem of acne.

Besides these home remedies, a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle will also enable you to reduce the risk of recurrent acne. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

How To Increase Your Libido?

How To Increase Your Libido?

What Is Libido? Why Does It Disappear Among Some of Us?

  • Libido is defined as a person’s overall sexual drive or desire for sexual activity. Low libido in women and low libido in men have some similar roots, along with some gender-specific ones as well.
  • For men, it’s actually quite normal to have a gradual decrease in libido as a man gets older. Each man is different, but most men tend to have some amount of sexual desire into their 60s and 70s. If aging isn’t at the root of libido decrease, a man may be depressed or experiencing too much stress. Other possible causes of  low sex drive men are a medication side effect, a decrease in male sex hormones due to an endocrine disorder or sleep apnea. A little-known fact is how sleep apnea can lead to an unusually low testosterone level.
  • Low testosterone can also cause erectile dysfunction (ED), a condition in which a man can’t get or maintain an erection. While both issues may involve low testosterone, ED and low libido do not necessarily equate or even happen at the same time. Men who have a hard time getting or maintaining an erection usually have a normal or even high sex drive.
  • When it comes to a low sex drive in women, there can be many causes. According to sex psychologist Sheryl Kingsberg, Ph.D, “Women’s sexuality tends to be multifaceted and fairly complicated.”
  • Common causes of a loss of sexual desire or low libido in women include issues in your relationship with your sexual partner, sociocultural influences (job stress, media images of sexuality, etc. ) and medical conditions (like fibroidsendometriosis and thyroid problems).
  • Low testosterone doesn’t just cause sexual issues for men. Women can also experience low testosterone. Female testosterone levels peak in the mid-20s and then steadily decrease until a woman goes through menopause. After menopause, female testosterone levels drop dramatically, and sex drive can drop dramatically as well. Birth control pills and other forms of hormonal pregnancy prevention can also have negative effects on a woman’s desire for sexual activity.
  • When it comes to how to increase your libido, there are two key biological chemicals that may affect your level of sexual desire whether you’re a man or woman. I’m talking about dopamine and prolactin. It’s theorized that dopamine increases desire while prolactin decreases it. If you take any medications, it’s important to know that some can increase prolactin release or inhibit dopamine release. Either of these two scenarios can decrease sexual desire and also cause other sexual side effects.
  • In men, low prolactin has been linked with multiple signs of poor sexual health and psychological health. Low prolactin levels are also associated with a larger body mass index (BMI), high blood sugar levels, lower levels of physical activity and just generally feeling unhealthier.
  • Relationship issues, depression, prescription medications, alcoholism, drug abuse and/or chronic diseases like diabetes can all be at the root of low sex drive for both sexes. A BMI that’s too high can also cause problems for both men and women when it comes to libido. Obese men tend to struggle with erectile difficulty, but studies have shown that losing only a small percent of weight can improve both male and female sexual function. A study conducted at Duke University reports that obese people are 25 times more likely to report sexual problems.

How to Increase Libido Through Diet

Let’s talk about how to increase libido through your diet, which includes what you should eat more of and what you should avoid or reduce significantly.

Foods That Help

  • Natural Aphrodisiacs — Figs, bananas and avocados are natural aphrodisiacs loaded with vitamins and minerals that can encourage more blood flow to the genitals and naturally increase sex drive. 
  • Vitamin C foods — Vitamin C improves blood circulation to the organs so it’s important to make sure you consume foods rich in vitamin C on a daily basis. Vitamin C has also specifically been linked with a healthier female libido. Some great choices include broccoli, oranges, red peppers and guava.
  • Iron-rich foods — For women in particular, low iron levels can have a negative affect on sexual desire, arousal, lubrication and ability to have an orgasm. Great sources of iron include dark leafy greens like kale and spinach, along with grass-fed beef.
  • Collagen-rich foods — Collagen production naturally declines with age. This has a direct negative effect on skin health and makes it harder to keep skin firm. This phenomenon can make it harder for men to maintain an erection, and it can lead to a looser vaginal wall in women. To increase your collagen levels, you can consume more bone broths and opt for a collagen supplement powder. Vitamin C also helps to increase collagen production.
  • Sweet potatoes — Sweet potatoes or yams are loaded with potassium and vitamin A. The potassium can help with high blood pressure, which makes a man more likely to have erectile dysfunction. 
  • Watermelon — In 2008, research conducted at Texas A&M demonstrated that watermelon may have a Viagra effect. The phytonutrients known as lycopene, beta-carotene and citrulline found in watermelon help relax blood vessels. While watermelon might not be as organ-specific as Viagra, it can be helpful in the bedroom without any negative side effects when you naturally want to improve libido.
  • Spices like nutmeg and clove — Spices are loaded with antioxidants, which is great for overall health, including libido. Research published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine specifically found that extracts of nutmeg and clove enhanced the sexual behavior of male animal subjects. Clove is also great at improving bad breath.
  • Dark chocolate — Research has shown that chocolate consumption leads to the release of phenylethylamine and serotonin, leading to some aphrodisiac and mood-lifting effects. Just make sure you choose a low-sugar, high-quality dark chocolate.
  • Brazil nuts — These nuts are high in selenium, which plays a role in maintaining healthy testosterone levels.
  • Almonds — Rich in zinc, selenium and vitamin E, almonds contain vitamins, minerals and healthy fats that can improve sexual health and reproduction.
  • Water — Making sure you’re not dehydrated is helpful when it comes to your libido since dehydration can cause a number of negative side effects that can easily dull sexual desire. If you want to avoid possible fatigueheadaches and vaginal dryness then drink up.

Ayurveda Techniques To Improve Low Sexual Drive!

Ayurveda Techniques To Improve Low Sexual Drive!

A bond that is shared by a couple is special. The intimate relationship is an important part of that bond, so, why let a low male libido cause damage to that bond? Especially when the field of medicine that is Ayurveda has such simple solutions!

  • Exercise is said to be of the highest importance for the long-term well-being of any person and it is just as important when it comes to battling a low libido. There are so many health benefits which accrue to a person which spill over. Better blood circulation is just one of the many, apart from better aerobic capacity and a lift in one’s mood. For these reasons alone, does it not make sense to exercise on a regular basis?
  • Apart from the exercise, when it comes to Ayurveda, it is important to keep in mind the fact that quality of the food that a person is eating is critical to the health of the body. And, when a man is battling against a low libido, the things that he needs to incorporate into his diet include essential fats and zinc.
  • The reduction of stress does, as a matter of fact, go a very long way in helping a man boost his libido. A man will find that as the stress clears out, his mind will be more open to rekindling the spark with his partner. So, in order to reduce the amount of stress that he is facing, some meditation should be able to do wonders. After all, even if fifteen minutes were allocated on a daily basis, it can be said that the impact can be seen.
  • Honey is an ancient food item which has served to provide a range of benefits beyond just acting as a sweetener for other foods. It has been in use since at least the time of the Egyptians. Honey is so good, in fact, that it is used as a remedy for low male libido by combining it with some apple. When about 5 apples are combined with a pinch of saffron, cardamom and nutmeg as well as about 10 drops of rosewater into a pulp, the mixture is potent enough to cause a pretty significant increase in the libido of the man. It should be eaten about half an hour post a meal.

While having a low male libido can signal trouble for a relationship, it can be said that as long as Ayurveda is resorted to, it will be back sooner rather than later! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.
