It is liable for a variety of functions within the body, and it helps stimulate the activity of at least 100 different enzymes. Only a tiny low intake of this metallic element is important to reap the advantages. Currently, the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for zinc is 8 milligrams (mg) a day for women and 11 mg a day for men. Zinc is of course found in many alternative foods, but it is also available as a dietary supplement.

Benefits-

Zinc is significant for a healthy system, correctly synthesizing DNA, promoting healthy growth during childhood, and healing wounds.

The following square measure a number of the health advantages of zinc:

1) Zinc and regulating immune function

According to the ECU Journal of medicine, the human body needs zinc to activate T lymphocytes (T cells).

So it indirectly helps in

• controlling and regulating immune responses

• attacking infected or cancerous cells

Zinc deficiency can severely impair immune system function.

2) Zinc for treating diarrhea

According to the World Health Organization, diarrhea kills an astonishing 1.6 million children under 5 every year. Zinc pills may help reduce diarrhea.

In my home, if my kids have Diarrhea first thing is Zinc and Sporolac. These two supplements make their immunity stronger and help 80 % time to totally treat the problem with home-cooked simple diet.

3) Zinc effects on learning and memory

Research conducted at the University of Toronto and revealed that zinc has a crucial role in regulation however neurons communicate with each other, affecting how memories are formed and how we learn.

4) Zinc to treat the common cold

Zinc lozenges were found to shorten the length of respiratory disorder episodes by up to forty percent in a  study by metabolism medication Journal.

In addition, a Cochrane review concluded that taking "zinc (lozenges or syrup) is beneficial in reducing the duration and severity of the common cold in healthy people when taken within 24 hours of onset of symptoms."

5) Zinc's role in wound healing

Zinc plays a task in maintaining skin integrity and structure. Patients experiencing chronic wounds or ulcers usually have deficient zinc metabolism and lower blood serum metallic element levels. Zinc is usually employed in skin creams for treating dermatitis or alternative skin irritations.

6) Zinc and diminished risk of age-related chronic problems

It has been best-known for many years that this metallic element features an important role in the immune system. Deficiency has been coupled with exaggerated inflammation in chronic disorders and triggering new inflammatory processes.

9) Zinc and fertility

Several studies and trials have coupled deficiency of zinc with low spermatozoan quality.

Recommended intake

Adequate intake is necessary because even gentle deficiency will impede growth, increase the risk of infection, and increase the risk of diarrhea and respiratory disease.

The suggested intake for youngsters 1-8 years recent ranges from 3-5 milligrams, increasing because the kid gets older.

Males 9-13 years recent need eight milligrams of the metallic element per day. After the age of fourteen, the necessity will increase to the eleven milligrams per day that's needed for all adult males. For females over the age of eight, the requirement stays stable at 8 milligrams per day, except for ages 14-18, where the recommendation increases to 9 milligrams per day.

The best sources of zinc are beans, animal meats, nuts, fish and other seafood, whole grain cereals, and dairy products. Zinc is added to some breakfast cereals and alternative fortified foods.

Vegetarians might need high intake than normal as it is attributable to low bioavailability of metallic element from plant-based foods.

Foods with the highest reported zinc content are:

• Raw oysters (Pacific), 3 ounces: 14.1 milligrams

• Beef, lean chuck roast, braised, 3 ounces: 7.0 milligrams

• Baked beans, canned, ½ cup: 6.9 milligrams

• Crab, King Alaskan, cooked, 3 ounces: 6.5 milligrams

How To Include Proteins To Your Breakfast?

Dt. Archna Gupta 89% (678 ratings)
PG Diploma in Nutrition & Dietetics, M.Sc.in Food & Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Ghaziabad

How to include proteins to your Breakfast?

  • All of us are well aware that breakfast is the first important meal of the day. The second most important thing is to have frequent meals to keep our metabolism high. Our body goes into the rest mode for almost 8 to 10 hours after dinner when we are sleeping through the night. Hence, it becomes essential to eat a good, balanced meal which has the right proportion of carbohydrates, protein, fats, vitamins, minerals, fibers, anti- oxidants etc.in the morning. More often than not it is a difficult task to incorporate all these nutrients in the morning breakfast due to our rush to get to work.But, one can always try to incorporate as many nutrients as we can out of the above if not all.
  • It is advised to include proteins in every meal. The inclusion of proteins to your breakfast becomes a challenging task especially if you are a vegetarian. Lacto or Ovo vegetarian breakfast can easily get proteins through the milk and eggs. The tough task is for vegetarians and vegans (those who limit dairy products).
  • Common Indian breakfast items are Poha (cooked Puffed Rice with some veggies), flat breads ,Upma, Idli and Dosa (steamed Rice pancakes), flat breads(Chapati), Rice, Porridge  etc. Today, I am going to tell you how we add proteins in our 1st meal of the day – breakfast.
  • Whenever we have options like steamed rice pancakes (Idli sambhar) or bread omelette we’re obviously getting proteins from the dish.  When we have options like Cooked Puff Rice, Upma, rice, cooked Wheat Flat breads (Chapati)  etc. without any side dish we need to add some proteins to it.

Here are few items which you can add:

  • Peanuts/ Groundnuts: A humble source of proteins and MUFA (mono unsaturated fatty acids) will add to proteins in breakfast. We can use in different forms as peanut butter, chutney etc. spread it on your bread or chapatti. Excellent to be added in pre workout meal. 100 g of Dry roasted peanuts will give 24-26 g of proteins.
  • Roasted Chana: Simple, easily available and can be stored. Just add a handful of black or brown Chana to your plate or have it on the go post breakfast. If you couple it up with peanuts it will be even better.
  • Mixed Sprouts: This one will need some preparation. Soak the sprouts for 6-8 hours, then drain the water and tie in the cloth for sprouts to come. Add handful of it either raw or steamed. Raw will give you good enzymes as compared to cooked ones. Whereas steamed will be easier to digest. Following are the rough values for sprouted and steamed sprouts.
  • Moong/ Green gram 2-3 g
  • Matki/ Moth bean 8 g
  • Chana/ Chick peas 9 g
  • Green peas: It is very to incorporate peas in any dish. Add it to your upma, poha, rice liberally. They will taste good as well as increase the protein value. Its green color also add to the visual effect.
  • 100 g of fresh green peas contain 5 g of protein
  • Nuts like (almond, walnut, cashew nut): Again a very handy option. Just adding them to your bowl of breakfast is very easy. They are rich in minerals like calcium, good fats like MUFA, omega 3 fatty acids. Don’t forget to soak and peel almond to avoid anti nutritional factors in the peel. Almond 21.2 g, Walnut 15.2 g
  • Sesame, flax, sunflower, pumpkin seeds: Dry roasted seeds can serve as a protein quotient of the meal. You can easily stock it in cool and dry place. You can have them as it is or grind to make into chutney. Dips like tahini can be made from sesame seeds.
  • Milk: You can just add a glass of milk to complete the protein quota of the meal. It goes well with roti, chapati, bread, cereals etc. It is better to go for low fat milk. If having cow’s milk make sure it is Desi cow’s milk. Make sure you’re not having it with salty or savory as milk and salt is not recommended to have together.1 cup of milk gives you 8 g protein on an average.
  • Curds/ Yogurt: Add a bowl of curds or yogurt to make your breakfast not only protein rich but yummy. We can mix poha, rice with it to give a better texture and taste. Fruits with yogurt can be another hit option and light still complete meal. 1 cup gives you 10-11 g proteins on an average.
  • Buttermilk: It is the best bet in summer. Having it post breakfast will help in digestion. It has good water content and therefore it will not be a concentrated source. Unlike milk it can be coupled with salty and savory options as well.
  • Cheese: I am yet to come across a person who doesn’t like cheese unless of course you are a vegan. We can add it with breads, chapatti, pancakes etc. You can use different varieties like cheese spread, cubes, and slices or just grate some cheese on your dish. People who are targeting weight gain can have it on regular basis. Those who are trying to lose weight should limit it once or twice in a week. 100 g will give approx. 20 g of proteins.

  5. Cutlets: Cutlets, of any kind and variety are filling, and not to mention are equally delicious.
  6. Roasted chickpeas: Roasted chickpeas can be easily carried around anywhere, and are a good form of snack to munch on.

Common Allergies - Foods That Can Trigger Them!

Food is a very important part of your life as it provides all the necessary nutrients required by your body and is essentially, the fuel for all things to function within. However, many people may have aversion to certain kinds of food as it causes adverse reactions within their body. Let’s look at some of the common food allergies that people commonly report and how to identify them.

Allergies v/s Intolerances: ?It is important to note here that there is a significant difference between food sensitivities or intolerances and allergies. Sensitivities or intolerances cause adverse effects on your body inevitably when you consume certain types of foods. One such example is diarrhea, caused by ingesting cheese or milk by lactose intolerant people. However, allergies are caused when the immune system within your body mistakes harmless food as something that might harm you and thus tries to protect you from its effects. This results in reactions within your body which may be very painful and problematic.

Common foods that trigger allergies
Some of the common foods that trigger allergies are:
1. Peanuts
2. Shellfish
3. Other forms of tree nuts such as almonds, walnuts etc.
4. Gluten rich grains such as wheat, rye barley, oats
5. Certain types of fish
6. Eggs
7. Soy products
8. Milk (allergic reactions mostly occur within children)

Some other foods which have been known to cause allergies in rare cases are:
1. Meats such as pork, chicken, beef, mutton
2. Corn and corn products
3. Gelatin
4. Certain spices such as mustard, garlic and coriander among others
5. Certain seeds such as poppy, sunflower, or sesame

Symptoms of allergies
In certain cases, the allergies might manifest immediately, almost in a matter of minutes, within the body. However, in many cases, it may take a few hours for it to show up. The symptoms may range from mild to quite severe. Mild symptoms will make it quite hard to actually diagnose it as a food allergy.

Some of the milder symptoms could be:
1. Hives or eczema could form on your skin which may be very itchy. These would look like raised swollen areas that could be red, inflamed, and dry.
2. The inside of your mouth and ears may become itchy
3. You could suddenly develop a runny or a blocked nose and start sneezing or coughing.
4. Your eyes may become watery, red and itchy
5. You may develop a funny taste in your mouth
6. Others symptoms may include throwing up and even loose motions

Other severe forms of allergies can be caused mostly by shellfish and peanuts and other forms of nuts and fish. Symptoms in such cases would look like:
1. Uneven heartbeat
2. Difficulty in swallowing and breathing
3. Feeling of extreme weakness, confusion
4. Passing out or feeling light headed
5. The tongue, throat or lips may swell up
6. Chest pain

Allergies - Role Of Homeopathy In Managing Them!

Allergies - Role Of Homeopathy In Managing Them!

Allergies can be difficult to handle and may prevent you from leading a normal life. The problem with allergies is the fact that there is no common trigger. Each person may be allergic to a different substance and it is vital for the patient to figure out what triggers the allergies. In severe forms of allergies, patients may become unable to draw breath, which would need them to be hospitalized.

Here is a look at some common causes for the allergies and the symptoms that such allergies may produce.

Causes of Allergy
Allergy is an autoimmune condition that is caused when the body’s immune system mistakes a foreign object for a harmful substance and attacks it. So, if an individual is allergic to peanuts, their body’s immune system will be on the lookout for the allergen in the blood and will produce antibodies against the same. Common allergens that are known to trigger such a negative reaction inside the body include-

  1. Certain food items
  2. Contact with certain insects and fleas
  3. Airborne allergens
  4. Certain medications
  5. Certain objects that you touch
  6. People with a family history of allergies and asthma are more likely to suffer from such a condition.

Symptoms of Allergy
The symptoms of allergy sometimes differ based on the trigger for the allergies. However, some symptoms are more common than others.

  1. Sneezing
  2. Inflammation of face and neck
  3. Red and watery eyes
  4. Runny nose
  5. Difficulty in drawing breath
  6. Skin rash
  7. Anaphylaxis

While most of the other symptoms are relatively easy to handle, anaphylaxis or anaphylactic shock may even be fatal in some cases. Anaphylaxis usually results from food allergies and can cause the patient to go into shock. Loss of consciousness, severe breathlessness, nausea and vomiting during an allergy may hint toward anaphylactic shock.

Role of homeopathy against allergies
Homeopathy bolsters the immune system as a whole and does not try to treat the allergy itself. Homeopathic treatments use natural remedies to treat the condition, which is why there are no chances of side effects from these medications. Topical creams to deal with the skin rash and oral medication to deal with other symptoms are commonly prescribed.

Even though homeopathic treatment takes time to work, it is still a dependable remedy. This branch of medical science believes in like cures like. This means that people allergic to peanuts may be treated by using a diluted form of the same allergen.

The common food items which are associated with allergies include eggs, peanuts, cow milk, soy, fish, wheat, shrimps, salads and fresh fruits. Several food preservatives also trigger asthma. They may include sulfite additives such as potassium bisulfite, potassium metabisulfite, sodiumsulfite, sodium bisulfate and many others. These are commonly used in food processing and trigger asthma in sensitive people.

Asthma induced by exercise

Strenuous exercise may lead to the narrowing of the airways in maximum people having asthma. Exercise acts as a primary trigger for asthma symptoms in many people. Patients having exercise induced asthma are likely to feel chest tightness accompanied by coughing and breathing difficulties after completing an aerobic workout session. Although the symptoms subside, they may reoccur within some hours. You should warm up properly and slowly before a rigorous workout session to prevent an asthma attack.

Smoking
People who smoke are more likely to have asthma. If you have asthma and still smoke, the symptoms of wheezing and coughing worsen. Pregnant women who smoke increase the chance of wheezing in their to-be-born babies. You should absolutely quit smoking if you have asthma.

Infections which trigger asthma
Several infections such as cold, bronchitisflu and sinus may cause asthma attacks. The respiratory infections, which are viral or bacterial, are a common cause and trigger asthma, especially in children. Asthma is also associated with severe heartburn. According to studies, more than 85% people with asthma also suffer from heartburn. This is a condition known as gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD.

How to Minimize Asthma Triggers

  • Air out damp, humid areas frequently. Run a dehumidifier to keep humidity between 25% and 50%.

  • Use air conditioners when possible.

  • Clean bathrooms regularly, using products that kill and prevent mold.

  • Use exhaust fans to vent steam.

  • Keep indoor plants out of bedrooms.

  • When painting, add mold inhibitor to paint to prevent mold from growing.

  • Avoid sources of outdoor molds, such as wet leaves or garden debris.

  • To clean visible mold, use a cleaning solution containing bleach and detergent.

  • Limit your outdoor activities during times of high pollen, such as early morning.

  • Stay indoors during humid or windy days when pollen counts are high.

  • Keep windows closed during pollen seasons.

  • Encase pillows and mattresses with allergen-proof, zippered covers.

  • Pillows and bedding should not contain feathers.

  • Wash all bedding in hot water, once a week.

  • Non-carpeted flooring is best. If you cannot get rid of your carpeting, vacuum often with a multi-layer, allergen-proof vacuum bag. Wear a mask while vacuuming. If your child has asthma, do not vacuum while he or she is in the room.

  • Avoid curtains and drapes. Use plain window shades instead of miniblinds. Washable curtains should be washed in hot water every 2 to 4 weeks.

  • Dust all surfaces with a damp cloth often, including lampshades and windowsills.

  • Keep clutter under control. Toys and books should be stored in enclosed bookshelves, drawers or closets.

  • Replace traditional stuffed animals with washable stuffed animals.

  • Keep all clothing in drawers and closets. Keep drawers and closets closed.

  • Cover air ducts with filters. Change these when soiled.

  • Regularly change filters of heaters and air conditioners

  • If you must have a cat or dog in the home, restrict its living area. It should not be allowed in your bedroom at any time. If possible, keep the pet outside.

  • Wash your pet weekly.

  • Remove as much carpeting as possible. Animal dander deposits in the carpet and stays there, even after the pet has gone from the home.

Male Sexual Dysfunction: An Ayurvedic Insight
The Tenet of Tridasha: Vata, Pitta and Kapha are innate to Ayurveda. In order to stay healthy, virile and sexually active, there needs to be a balance in these three doshas. If there is an abnormal increase or decrease in any of these doshas, a person is likely to suffer. This can happen when there is a disequilibrium in the seven tissues of the body, also known as Dhatu. They are known as Rasa, Rakta, Meda, Mamsa, Majja, Asthi and Shukra. Among these, Shukra is the reproductive fluid or the semen. So, if there is a problem with Shukra, one can suffer from sexual dysfunction.
