• Fights cancer: Being a rich source of long-chain omega3 fatty acids, fish oil has the potential to blunt the production of Cox- 2 derived prostanoids in cancer cells. The two components of fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) plays a valuable role in cancer treatment.

Ways to Cut Carbs

1. Lose the Juice- Fruit juice isn’t as healthy as people once thought. It lacks the fiber of whole fruit, and even 100% fruit juice is loaded with sugar and carbs. Cutting out fruit juice from your diet can eliminate a source of carbs you may not have even been watching out for.

2. Cut the Crust- While pizza is an undeniably delicious indulgence, most pizza crusts are high in refined white flour, which is a major carbohydrate offender. If you can’t resist eating pizza, opt for the thin crust variety rather than deep dish. You can still get your cheese and tomato sauce fix without ingesting as many carbohydrates.

3. Wrap It Up- Sacrificing sandwiches and burgers is one of the toughest things about going low carb. But if you “think outside the bun,” you can still enjoy many of the flavors you love, just low carb. The solution? Substitute lettuce wraps for the bun on your burger or the bread on your turkey sandwich. You’ll drastically lower the carb content and still have something to grip.

Make Family Healthy and Lively

Make a Habit of Exercising

A few years back, I used to exercise alone upon my curiosity to be healthy, but, now, I workout with my daughter and husband. When we get back home from work, we find out little princess busy in doing homework. After relaxing for a few hours, I play music and we exercise together. Recently, I motivated my husband to join a gym together, too, but we skipped the idea as it isn’t a nice option for a seven-year-old kid. You can always go to a gym with your family if your kids are old enough.

If home exercising doesn’t work and it bores your kid, take him to a playground and let him play with different types of commercial playground equipment. However, do take foam padding for playgrounds with you in order to ensure safety for them.

Encourage Healthy Eating

Parents have a hold over what should be cooked at home. If you make a habit of eating healthy food since the beginning of your kid’s life, it will last throughout his life and he will lead an exemplary life. We can only do better when our health is

Foods for Kidney Stone Prevention

Apart from water, the inclusion of top 3 food habits in your diet can plays significant role in kidney stone prevention. Such as:

1. Increase in citrus intake: The best sources of naturally occurring citric acid are lemon, oranges, and grapefruits. Citric acid builds a protective shield against the formation of stones in your kidney. It helps in breaking up the potential blocks of stone formation into smaller pieces which get expelled through urination.

2. Include calcium (Vitamin D): Lower your oxalate level by including more calcium into your diet. It is always advisable by the health experts to extract calcium from natural sources rather than from the supplements. Milk, cheese, and yogurt are considered as the prime sources to obtain calcium. Apart from these, dark green vegetables, nuts, seeds, and legumes are also the rich source of calcium. It is equally essential to increase the intake of vitamin D, as it helps in the absorption of more calcium. The lower is the calcium level in your diet, the more is the increase in oxalate level which is primarily responsible for the stone formation.

3. Watery fruits and vegetables: Though drinking sufficient water and healthy

Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamin D deficiency is caused when your serum vitamin D level is below 20 nanograms/millimeter (ng/ml). It can also occur when there is an insufficiency of the vitamin in your diet or your body cannot absorb and metabolize the ones you consume.

Furthermore, if you live in a place with a high latitude, you may be at more risk of vitamin D deficiency because you may have less access to the sun’s ultraviolet-B (UVB) rays. Staying too much indoors is also a contributing factor and if you live in a highly-polluted territory, you may have a lesser access to sun’s rays. The use of excessive sunscreen on your skin to block UV rays may also be a contributory factor while those with darker skin types need more exposure.

It is unsafe to self-diagnose a vitamin D deficiency because its symptoms are similar to many other ailments. Hence, it is very important to conduct a laboratory test in order to establish the ailment. However, some symptoms that may be noticed are weak bones, depression, chronic pain, rising blood pressure, exhaustion even with adequate sleep, unexplained infertility, weakness of the muscle, just to mention a few.

All about Antioxidant Products

For this reason, synthetic antioxidants, such as butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), were extensively used to delay, retard, or prevent the lipid oxidation by scavenging chain-carrying peroxyl radicals or suppressing the formation of free radicals. However, because of the concern over the safety of these synthetic compounds, extensive work is being carried out to find novel and naturally occurring compounds to delay the oxidative degradation of lipids, improve quality, and maintain the nutritional value of foods. Thus, natural antioxidants have greater application potential in the meat industry because of the consumers’ acceptability over the synthetic antioxidants. However, the application of plant extracts, herbs, spices, and essential oils with antioxidant effects is still distant for the major reasons of limited data about their effects in different meat products.

The meat industry is demanding antioxidants from natural sources to replace synthetic antioxidants because of the negative health consequences or beliefs regarding some synthetic antioxidants. Fruits, vegetables, by-products, and other plant materials provide good alternatives. Some of these antioxidants, apart from oxidation inhibition, may also affect other quality attributes positively or negatively, and ultimately affect consumer acceptability of the product. It has been shown that treatment with some natural sources can cause

About Killer Foods

The government has been at war with the farmers who produce and sell directly to consumers without resort to genetics, with the accusation that their foods are contaminated with the Salmonella species of bacteria. Salmonella is the main causative agent for diarrhea. For example, American federal and state regulators are seeking legal sanctions against farmers in Maine, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and California, among others. These sanctions include injunctions, fines, and even prison sentences for farmers who fail to join the genetic bandwagon.

Genetic modification of foods started in the nineteen eighties. The biotechnology giant Monsanto began to genetically alter corn to withstand its activities in trying to round up their weed clearing agenda-or herbicide roundup, as it was generally referred to. The goal was to eradicate weeds but not crops and resist a corn pest called the corn borer. These small changes in the Deoxyribonucleic acid, DNA, the building blocks of proteins in the body, of the corn are expressed by the plant as proteins. Those proteins act as allergens, provoking a disorder marked by the overproduction of a type of white blood cell called an eosinophil.

The U.S. government started approving GMO corn and soybeans

Dry, Dehydrated Skin

Dry skin is very common in winter, but if your skin is drier than usual, it may be due to lack of omega-3 fatty acids in your diet. Omega-3s aid in nourishing the lipid barrier of your skin, which is responsible for keeping harmful germs as well as toxins out and vital moisture in. When there is an insufficient omega-3 fatty acid in your diet, your skin will lose moisture and this can lead to unpalatable scaly texture. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acid include sardines, salmon, flaxseed, chia seeds, walnuts and so on.

  • It is the ‘muscle building’ part of the brain. With every repetition of a thought or emotion, we reinforce a neural pathway. Similarly, with each new thought, we begin to create a new way of being.
  • As we age, change doesn’t come so easily because the brain loses some of its plasticity and we become more fixed in how we think, learn, and perceive.

How to improve neuroplasticity? –

The research has shown conclusively that the brain can form new neural pathways and create neurons throughout life. Notwithstanding our genes we inherit, our lifestyle plays an important role in improving this unique quality of brain. The following are ways that help you improve your brain fitness by harnessing neuroplasticity:

Do exercise regularly – Regular exercise and increased fitness promote brain functioning through a variety of mechanisms, including increased brain volume, blood supply and growth hormone levels.
