8 Healthy Hacks For The Hot Summer Season!

There are few things more exhausting or more irritating than the four-month long Indian summer. With soaring temperatures and the sun raging outside, mangoes and lychees don’t seem like much of a silver lining. So, here are 8 health hacks that will make your summer a little better.

1. Replace Soft Drinks with Water

When you are out on the streets or sweating at home, a sweet fizzy drink does seem tempting but try resisting and have a glass of sparkling water instead. The preservatives and chemicals in the soft drinks do nothing to help your metabolism, which is slowed down by dehydration. Add a bit of lemon juice if only water does not appeal to you.

2. Try Yoghurt Instead of Ice-Cream

The primary difference between the two is that one contains cream and the other does not. Yoghurt is lighter and has lesser fat content. Excess fat consumption during summer actually makes you sweat more.

3. Use Honey Instead of Butter

Butter, like cream has a heavy fat content and your metabolism (which is slower in summer to retain water in the body) takes longer to break fat down. So, ditch butter this summer and spread some honey on your crunchy breakfast toast.

4. Stock-up on Cucumber

Cucumber is an underrated blessing. You can munch on them anytime you like without worrying about calorie intake or stomach aches. Rubbing some cucumber on your skin can soothe sunburns and itches.

5. Aloe Vera can Work Wonders

You must have heard about the boon that aloe vera is when it comes to skincare. It is the best solution to nasty sunburns, especially aloe vera gel frozen in small Ziploc bags, can heal burns and prevent skin peeling and chaffing.

6. Lower the pH Value of your Skin

Application of citrus fruit juices like apples and lemons or vinegar can lower the pH value of our skin and prevent the multiplication of bacteria. This keeps both sweat and body odor away much more effectively than deodorants.

7. Make Small Sacrifices in terms of Diet

Some of your favorite things like coffee, alcohol, spicy food, sugar and cigarettes are best consumed minimally in summer because they all aggravate the functioning of the apocrine glands and cause sweat and body odor.

8. Shower Before you Workout

One of the good things about summer might be that you have an excuse to skip work out. But, if you start with a cold shower or a swim, or keep a cold, wet towel round your neck, workout can be surprisingly refreshing. You can do the same after your workout- it lowers the body temperature and cooling the muscles can heal soreness very quickly. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Lychee Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi - लीची के फायदे और नुकसान

चीन में चार हजार वर्षों से उगाई जा रही लीची को अब भारत, दक्षिणपूर्व एशिया और दक्षिण अफ्रीका के कुछ हिस्सों में उगाया जाता है. सोपबेरी परिवार के इस सदस्य का वैज्ञानिक नाम लीची चिनेंसिस है. नर्म सफ़ेद और गुलाबी रंग की लीची, उष्ण या उपोष्णकटिबंधीय जलवायु में उगाने के अनुकूल होता है. बिहार के मुजफ्फरपुर के अलावा ये भारत के असम, उत्तरप्रदेश, झारखंड, त्रिपुरा बंगाल, पंजाब, उत्तराखंड और पश्चिम बंगाल में उगाया जाता है. इसमें कई पोषक तत्वों की मौजूदगी होती है. इनमें प्रमुख हैं विटामिन बी-6, सी, राइबोफ्लेविन, नियासिन, फास्फोरस, मैग्नीशियम, पोटेशियम, तांबा और मैंगनीज आदि तत्व पाए जाते हैं. इसके अलावा लीची में आहार फाइबर, पॉलीफेनॉलिक यौगिक पाया जाता है. आइए लीची के फायदे और नुकसान को जानें.

1. ह्रदय को स्वस्थ रखने में
लीची में मौजूद एंटीऑक्सीडेंट कार्डियोवैस्कुलर स्वास्थ्य को बढ़ावा देने में मददगार साबित होता है. इसमें पाया जाने वाला ऑलिगोनल नाम का एक यौगिक नाइट्रिक ऑक्साइड के उत्पादन को बढ़ाता है. नाइट्रिक ऑक्साइड रक्त वाहिकाओं को विस्तारित करके रक्त संचार को नियमित करता है. ये रक्त को पम्प करके दिल पर दबाव डालता है जिससे कि ह्रदय के समग्र स्वास्थ्य में सुधार होता है.
2. आँखों के लिए
लीची में पाया जाने वाला फाइटोकेमिकल्स, एंटीऑक्सीडेंट और एंटीनाइप्लास्टिक गुणों से प्रचुर होता है. यानी ये कोशिकाओं की असामान्य वृद्धि को रोक सकता है. इससे मोतियाबिंद की संभावना भी काफी हद तक कम होती है. 
3. रक्त परिसंचरण के लिए
लीची में आयरन और कॉपर की प्रचुरता होती है. ये दोनों ही खनिज रक्त परिसंचरण से जुड़े हैं. लाल रक्त कोशिकाओं में आयरन जबकि आरबीसी के गठन में कॉपर की भूमिका होती है. इसलिए लीची के सेवन से रक्तपरिसंचरण दुरुस्त होता है और कोशिकाओं में ऑक्सिजन की आपूर्ति सुनिश्चित होती है.
4. वजन बढ़ाने में
लीची में मिठास तो भरपूर होती है लेकिन इसमें कैलोरी काफी कम मात्रा में होती है. 100 ग्राम लीची में मात्र 66 कैलोरी पाई जाती है इसलिए ये वजन कम करने वाले लोगों के लिए आदर्श खाद्य पदार्थ है. रसदार होने के कारण इसमें पानी और फाइबर भी पाया जाता है. इसमें थोड़ी वसा भी पाई जाती है.
5. पाचन तंत्र के लिए
लीची एक रेशेदार फल है, और इसलिए इसमें फाइबर की प्रचुरता होती है. फाइबर छोटी आंत की मांसपेशियों की गति को उत्तेजित करके भोजन की गुंजाइश में वृद्धि करती है. जिससे कि यह गैस्ट्रिक और पाचन के रस को उत्तेजित करता है और कब्ज एवं अन्य जठरांत्र संबंधी विकार को दूर करता है.
6. यौन इच्छाएं बढ़ाने में
लीची में पाया जाने वाला पोटेशियम, तांबा और विटामिन सी कामेच्छा को उत्तेजित करता है. इसलिए लीची के सेवन से मनुष्य में यौन इच्छाएं बढ़ती हैं. यानी आप लीची का प्रयोग एक प्राकृतिक यौन इच्छा बढ़ाने वाले दवा के रूप में भी कर सकते हैं.
7. बालों के लिए
लीची में मौजूद तमाम पोषक तत्व हमारे बालों के लिए भी काफी लाभदायक सिद्ध होते हैं. बालों को कई बाहरी समस्याओं जैसे कि तनाव या प्रदुषण का सामना करना पड़ता है. ऐसे में बाल अपनी प्राकृतिक चमक खोने लगते हैं. इसे बचाने के लिए लीची के लुग्दी से बालों को मैश करें तो फायदा होगा.
8. रक्तचाप को नियंत्रित करने में
इसमें मौजूद पोटेशियम की भरपूर मात्रा हमारे शरीर में द्रव की मात्रा को बनाए रखने में काम आती है. द्रव के संतुलन से उपापचय और रक्तचाप दोनों नियंत्रित होते हैं. पोटेशियम रक्त वाहिकाओं और धमनियों के तनाव को भी कम करता है.
9. एंटीवायरल बिमारियों में
कई शोधों में देखा गया है कि लीची एंटीवायरल बिमारियों से मुकाबला करने में सक्षम है. इसमें पाए जाने वाले प्रोएथोकेनडिंस नाम का एक पॉलिफेनॉल के कारण ऐसा हो पाता है. इसके अलावा इसमें लाइचीटैनिन ए-2 नाम का एक यौगिक भी पाया जाता है. जिससे कि वायरस को रोका जा सकता है.
10. कैंसर से बचाव में
कैंसर जैसी गंभीर बीमारियों के रोकथाम के लिए भी लीची का प्रयोग किया जा सकता है. इसके लिए भी लीची में पाया जाने वाला प्रोएथोकेनडिंस नाम का एक पॉलिफेनॉल यौगिक ही है. दरअसल ये विटामिन सी की तुलना में ज्यादा प्रभावी तरीके से मुक्त कणों को निष्क्रिय करते हैं. इसके अलावा इसमें कैंसर के खतरे को कम करने वाला कार्बनिक यौगिक भी है.
11. प्रतिरोधक क्षमता बढ़ाने में
लीची में मौजूद विटामिन सी की वजह से हमारे शरीर के प्रतिरोधक क्षमता में वृद्धि होती है. ऐसा इसलिए है क्योंकि ये एक प्रमुख एंटीऑक्सिडेंट है. ये सफ़ेद रक्त कोशिकाओं की गतिविधि को प्रोत्साहित करके प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को मजबूत करता है.
12. त्वचा के लिए
इसमें मौजूद विटामिन इ त्वचा में निखार लाने के साथ-साथ सन बर्न, फफोले, लालिमा, दर्द और जलन जैसी समस्याओं को भी दूर करने का काम करता है. इसके अलावा ये त्वचा के दाग-धब्बों को भी दूर करता है.

लीची के नुकसान

  • शुगर के मरीज इसका प्रयोग सावधानी से करें.
  • लीची के प्रयोग से कुछ लोगों को एलर्जी भी हो सकती है.
  • ये कई बार शरीर के पोषक तत्वों को संतुलित भी कर सकती है.
  • लीची हमारे शरीर में हार्मोनल असंतुलन भी करती है.
  • गर्भवती एवं स्तनपान कराने वाली महिलाएं इसे सावधानीपूर्वक खाएं.

Want to get rid Of ill effects of Smog / Fog / Pollution?

Your diet is missing in multiple nutrients hence not able to protect itself from dis-eases. Your body does not get enough supply of nutrients and due to pollution (environmental, water, food, air quality, soil, chemicals used outside and inside home etc.) the nutrients are exhausted faster and the requirement increases multifolds.

The remedy is to eat as many fruits and veg in a day - fresh, juiced (but un-strained) or as mixed fruit bowl, mixed salad etc. all uncooked. Remember the antioxidants (protective nutrients – protect our body from diseases, valuable for preventing sicknesses, beneficial for protecting the body from further damage, if taken in sufficiency even reverse certain symptoms) are mostly present in foods which are in the natural form. So consume the foods the way nature produces for us.

Vitamins A, C, E & Omega are major antioxidants and should be taken in dietary and supplemental form along with Echinacea (herb) to boost the immunity, making you strong enough to fight the infections and diseases.

Therefore consume foods:

1. Rich in omega3 to counteract the inflammatory allergic response such as wall nuts, pecan nuts, flex seeds, chia seeds, mildly roasted or lightly cooked soya beans, canola oil, etc.

2. Rich in antioxidants such as all kinds of all kinds of berries strawberries, black berries, blue berries, bilberries, gooseberries, cranberries, raspberries, mulberries, etc.

3. Rich in Vitamin C and other nutrients - fruits such as oranges, apples, quince, pears, custard apple, kiwi, pineapple, papaya, pomegranate, sweet lime, lemon, grapefruit, passion fruit, mango, banana, apricot, lychees, rambutan, toddy fruit, plums, peach, avocado, amla, olives, cherries, watermelons, muskmelon, fig, guava, grapes etc.

4. Good food sources of other protective nutrients in different color vegetables like baby corn, beetroot, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, carrots, bell peppers / capsicum, cucumber, cabbage, kale, parsley, cauliflower, spinach, green onion, lettuce tomatoes, onions, radish, and more - eaten as raw - as salads....

5. Herbs such as ginger, turmeric, mint, coriander, celery etc

6. Uncooked sprouts of all the lentils. Some nutrients missing in the lentils or legumes are synthesized during the process of germination and available best in uncooked form especially for 4 from Vitamin B group, Vitamin C and many others

7. Warm decoctions such as green tea, herbal tea, tulsi tea, jeera tea, ajwain tea, methi tea, etc.

However, when you already got the health concern, your body requires more antioxidants then it would require on a regular basis. If your lungs and liver are affected then you should undergo a nutritional therapy for a certain period of time to get your health back.

Lychee prevents various health conditions:

1. Cancer: flavones, quercitin and kaempferol present in lychee prevents the formation of cancer cells.

2. Heart disease: lychee has antioxidant vitamin c which lowers the blood pressure. Since it is rich in fiber content, it prevents the formation of fat; this in turn will promote cardiovascular health. Consumption of this fruit will result in the increase of good cholesterol and decrease of bad cholesterol. This will reduce the chances of heart attack, stroke and hypertension. Potassium present in this fruit is also great for the heart.

3. Digestion and bowel movements:
 Lychee contains pectin and dietary fiber which are important for healthy bowel movement. Water content in this fruit also helps in preventing constipation. Healthy bowel movements are necessary to rule out diseases like pile and colon cancer.
