"You Belong With Me"

"You Belong With Me" You're on the phone with your girlfriend She's upset, she's going off about something that you said 'Cause she doesn't get your humor like I do.

Fluoride In Toothpaste Health Issues

Fluoride In Toothpaste Health Issues   Fluoride is a form of the chemical element fluorine. It is used as medicine. Fluoride is added to public drinking water to prevent tooth decay. Fluoride is added to toothpaste and mouthwashes so it can be applied directly to the teeth to prevent tooth decay. Fluoride is also taken by mouth for treating weakened bones (osteoporosis) and for preventing bone loss in people with rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's disease.     However using fluride in tooth paste and drinking fluoridated water causes several  serious health issues 1. Most Developed Countries Do Not Fluoridate Their Water More people drink fluoridated water in the US alone than in the rest of the world combined. In Western Europe, for instance, 97 percent of the population drinks non-fluoridated water. 2. Fluoridated Countries Do Not Have Less Tooth Decay Than Non-Fluoridated Countries According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there is no discernible difference in tooth decay between developed countries that fluoridate their water and those that do not. The decline in tooth decay the US has experienced over the last 60 years, which is often attributed to fluoridated water, has likewise occurred in all developed countries (most of which do not fluoridate their water). 3. Fluoride Affects Many Tissues in Your Body Besides Your Teeth Many assume that consuming fluoride is only an issue that involves your dental health. But according to a 500-page scientific review, fluoride is an endocrine disruptor that can affect your bones, brain, thyroid gland, pineal gland and even your blood sugar levels.2 There have been over 34 human studies and 100 animal studies linking fluoride to brain damage,3 including lower IQ in children, and studies have shown that fluoride toxicity can lead to a wide variety of health problems, including: Increased lead absorption      Disrupts synthesis of collagen

Dangers of Aluminium In Deodrant And Make UP

  Dangers of Aluminium In Deodrant And Make UP                       Aluminum is the world's most abundant metal in the earth's crust.  It is a versatile metal that is lightweight, relatively soft, and durable.  It is a fairly reactive element that combines with negatively charged ions or elements to form compounds such as aluminum oxide or aluminum sulfate.  How does aluminum enter the body? We're exposed to aluminum in many ways:     Trace amounts in drinking water     Baked goods that contain alum-containing baking powder     Foods with artificial colorants (aluminum lakes, example: yellow 5 aluminum lake)      Cooking acidic foods in aluminum cookware (the acidity causes the aluminum to leach)

How does your car transmission systoms works

 How does your car transmission systoms works What is transmission? The transmission is a mechanical component designed to transmit power from a vehicle’s engine to the drive axle, which makes the wheels drive the vehicle.  By varying the gear ratio, the transmission alters the levels of power and speed to the wheels. For example, in low ranges, the transmission provides more power and less speed; in high ranges, just the opposite is true. This reduces the load on the engine, while increasing the vehicle’s speed and fuel economy. Type of transmission   .Manual transmission

Activated Charcoal Health benifits

 Activated Charcoal Health benifits What is activated charcoal? Activated charcoal and regular charcoal are almost identical – the only difference is that activated charcoal has been created solely for medicinal use. To create activated charcoal, regular charcoal is heated with a gas that causes the charcoal to expand, creating a porous surface that traps toxins. People have been using activated charcoal for thousands of years. In World War I, activated charcoal was used in gas masks to prevent soldiers from being poisoned by chemical exposure, and it has been used to treat water (making it tasteless and odorless) since 1930. activated charcoal is available for purchase in capsule form (clear capsules containing powdered charcoal), or can be bought loosely in bulk.  Activated charcoal health benefits *Reduces High Cholesterol** Studies around the world show that activated charcoal reduces bad cholesterol and increases good cholesterol as much as some prescription medications. *Anti-Aging** Activated charcoal uses include helping prevent cellular damage to kidneys and liver, as well as supporting healthy adrenal glands. It’s imperative to cleanse toxins and chemicals routinely from the body.

Serotonin And Dopamine Defficiency causes Maigrane

 Serotonin And Dopamine Defficiency causes Maigrane Serotonin The neurotransmitter serotonin helps control pain, sleep, mood, sexual behavior and dilation and constriction of the blood vessels. Fluctuations in the brain’s levels of serotonin are strongly associated with chronic tension, cluster and migraine headaches. When muscle tensions or hyperexcitatory neuronal state stimulates the trigeminal nerve, a sensory cranial nerve, it releases a number of chemical substances. These substances cause an inflammation of the trigeminal nerve. When the inflammation and blood vessels interact, the blood vessels dilate, which causes pain. In individuals who don’t suffer from headaches, serotonin can help prevent dilation. People who suffer from severe headaches don’t have this regulatory system in place. Dopamine

Rejuvenating Foods And Habits

Rejuvenating Foods And Habits If you pay attention to your nutrition and exercise habits, your skin will benefit (and glow, too). Nature makes it look smooth and easy to transition, but for us humans, it’s not as easy to transition gracefully from one season to the next—especially from winter to spring. Exercise daily, drink a lot of water, stay away from toxic foods, and use instead healthy and green vegetables and fruits, will make better result. What you eat is what you are. Eating foods that are harmful for the body leads to ailments, low energy levels, depression and can even be fatal. Following diets that are lop sided like the Atkins (which recommends only protein consumption) or the South Beach Diet only leads to temporary weight loss and almost permanent damage in terms of health and energy. Rejuvenating Habits Reach Out To Friends Humans are naturally social creatures. It’s embedded in our DNA to yearn for love and friendships. Studies show that being lonely can be as harmful to health as smoking and high cholesterol. In elderly people it can be dangerous because loneliness can cause serious depression. A simple solution is to challenge your comfort zone and start meeting new people. Work To Live, Don’t Live To Work Never stress on your job, just relax and enjoy, if you start to bother about money you will lose your mental and physical strength.

Vertical Farming (Aerofarming)

Vertical Farming (Aerofarming)   Vertical farming is the practice of producing food in vertically stacked layers, such as in a skyscraper, used warehouse, or shipping container. The modern ideas of vertical farming use indoor farming techniques and controlled-environment agriculture (CEA) technology, where all environmental factors can be controlled. These facilities utilize artificial control of light, environmental control (humidity, temperature, gases...) and fustigation. Some vertical farms use techniques similar to greenhouses, where natural sunlight can be augmented with artificial lighting and metal reflectors By the year 2050, nearly 80% of the earth’s population will reside in urban centers. Applying the most conservative estimates to current demographic trends, the human population will increase by about 3 billion people during the interim. An estimated 109 hectares

Fresh water pollution

Fresh water pollution As technology improves, scientists are able to detect more pollutants, and at smaller concentrations, in Earth’s freshwater bodies. Containing traces of contaminants ranging from birth control pills and sunscreen to pesticides and petroleum, our planet's lakes, rivers, streams, and groundwater are often a chemical cocktail.   Beyond synthetic pollution, freshwater is also the end point for biological waste, in the form of human sewage, animal excrement, and rainwater runoff flavored by nutrient-rich fertilizers from yards and farms. These nutrients find their way through river systems into seas, sometimes creating coastal ocean zones void of oxygen—and therefore aquatic life—and making the connection between land and sea painfully obvious. When you dump paint down the drain, it often ends up in the ocean, via freshwater systems. Where can freshwater be found? Only a tiny fraction of the planet’s abundant water is available to us as freshwater. About 97.4% by volume is found in the oceans and is too salty for drinking, irrigation, or industry (except as a coolant). Most of the remaining 2.6% water is freshwater and locked up in ice layers or glaciers or it’s too deep underground to be reached or too salty to be used. Thus, only about 0.014% of the earth’s total volume of water is easily available to us as soil moisture, usable groundwater, water vapor, and lakes and streams.   There isn’t not much originations community to acknowledge the importance of keeping the water fresh, and to keeping it from polluted.

Nikola Tesla Untold

Nikola Tesla Untold Nikola Tesla (Serbian , 10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was a Serbian-Americaninventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist who is best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system. Tesla gained experience in telephony and electrical engineering before emigrating to the United States in 1884 to work for Thomas Edison in New York City. He soon struck out on his own with financial backers, setting up laboratories and companies to develop a range of electrical devices. His patented AC induction motor and transformer were licensed by George Westinghouse, who also hired Tesla for a short time as a consultant. His work in the formative years of electric-power development was involved in a corporate alternating current/direct current "War of Currents" as well as various patent battles. He became a naturalized US citizen in 1891.   This reveals the discoveries of a forgotten genius, many of which went virtually unnoticed for nearly a century. Nikola Tesla is considered the father of our modern technological age and one of the most mysterious and controversial scientists in history. How did this obscure visionary from what is now Croatia, lay the foundation for modern communications and energy research?   Nikola Te

Simple exercises to improve the eye sight

Simple exercises to improve the eye sight Vision problems are quickly becoming a common disease in this day and age. With an exponential increase in the number of hours we spend in front of a screen, the phenomenon comes as no surprise. Even children are spending more time in front of computer or TV straining their eyes for no reason. Here are some useful eye exercises and keys to improve your eyesight. Some practices that can improve your eye sight Reduced to their most basic terms, eyes are organs that detect light and send electrical impulses along the optic nerve to the visual and other areas of the brain. The eyes are controlled by a group of six muscles of orbit. Four of the muscles control the movement of the eye in the four cardinal directions: up, down, left and right. The remaining two muscles control the adjustments involved in counteracting head movement. The body is the only machine that breaks down when it isn’t used. This can mean bad things for your eyes if the muscles around them are always fixed in the same position. Whether your focus is tight, diffused, strained or receptive, the way you use your eyes not only affects the eye itself, but it also has a tremendous impact on your posture, breathing, and mood. Palming This is a great way to improve your eyesight and relax the eyes and muscles around them. Sit comfortable on a chair. Rub your hands together until they feel warm. Close the eyes and cover them lightly with your cupped palms. Avoid applying pressure on your eye balls. Place the palm so that the nose remains uncovered, and the eyes remain behind the slight hollow of the palms. Make sure that no light rays enter the eyes, and leave no gaps between fingers or between the edge of the palms and the nose.

Commercially, acrylamide is used in the manufacture of some plastics as well as various other materials. While acrylamide is used in making some food packaging, this use has not been found to add acrylamide to foods at levels that could pose a health concern. Acrylamide is a potentially toxic and potentially cancer-causing substance that can be naturally present in uncooked, raw foods in very small amounts. But for this substance to pose a risk of toxicity or cancer, it must be present in foods in much larger amounts, and these larger amounts do not occur unless those foods have been cooked. In addition to certain cooked foods that can expose us to large amounts of acrylamide, there are many non-dietary

Dangers of E-waste, and how to earn from E-waste

Dangers of E-waste, and how to earn from E-waste Harmful effects of E waste Electronic waste affects nearly every system in the human body because they contain a plethora of toxic components including Mercury, Lead, Cadmium, Polybrominated Flame Retardants, Barium and Lithium. Even the plastic casings of electronics products contain Polyvinyl Chloride. The health effects of these toxins on humans include birth defects, brain, heart, liver, kidney and skeletal system damage. They will also significantly affect the nervous and reproductive systems of the human body. Arsenic may disrupt cell communication and interfere with the triggers that cause cells to grow, possibly contributing to cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes if someone is exposed in chronic, low doses. Cadmium affects your body's ability to metabolize calcium, leading to bone pain and severely weakened, fragile bones. Chromium can cause skin irritation and rashes and is potentially carcinogenic. Copper can irritate the throat and lungs and affect the liver, kidneys and other body systems. Lead poisoning can cause a whole slew of health problems including the impairment of cognitive and verbal activity. Eventually, lead exposure can cause paralysis, coma and death. Nickel is carcinogenic in large doses.

Benefits of Bee Wax

Benefits of Bee Wax What is Beeswax? Is it Edible? We know beeswax obviously comes from honey bees, but what is beeswax? Beeswax is produced naturally by honey worker bees in bee hives. Many people don’t know this, but beeswax is actually edible. When eaten, beeswax doesn’t have many health benefits, but beeswax is really good for the skin and the hair! Find out why. Bee Wax as Beauty care Benefits to the Skin The cosmetics industry loves beeswax because not only is it natural and non-toxic, it provides benefits to the skin and to various types of formulas. It’s a “thickening agent,” for instance, which means that it can help thicken creams to make them easier to use and more spreadable on the skin. Here are some of the more potent benefits of beeswax: 1-      1- Protective: When applied to the skin, beeswax forms a protective barrier that helps protect it from environmental assaults, while also holding in moisture and reducing dryness. This is one of the reasons beeswax is often used in lip balms. Unlike ingredients made from petroleum, however, beeswax doesn’t “suffocate” the skin, and won’t clog pores. 2-

Scientific factors of Feng shui, The Ancient Chine

Scientific factors of Feng shui, The Ancient Chinese architectural art Little basic about Feng shui Feng shui, derived from the Chinese concept of yin and yang, has been practiced for thousands of years. Evidence of the existence of this practice can be found in the alignment and organization of graves in the Yangshao villages from 6000 b.c. In fact, there is compelling evidence that suggests that feng shui was not strictly an Asian entity. Feng shui, pronounced "foong swee" (Cantonese) or "fong shway" (Mandarin) is the Chinese art of arranging buildings, objects, and space in the environment in order to achieve energy, harmony, and balance. The English translation of Feng shui is "the way of Wind (feng) and Water (shui)" or "the natural forces of the universe." Feng shui, it’s an ancient science not religion This may come as a surprise to many people, but feng shui actually has absolutely nothing to do with religion nor does it have any religious components to it. It is important to talk about these misconceptions because many people have reservations or are negative about feng shui because they perceive it to carry some negative connotations. Firstly, there are people who see feng shui as a cult practice, as it seems to involve being part of a following or having to ‘believe’ or have faith in order for it to work. For many people, this concept of feng shui suggests the need to change one’s faith o

Why is vitamin B important?

Why is vitamin B important? Do you ever wonder why doctors always tell you to eat a balanced diet? Say you love pineapple chicken, for example. Pineapples and chicken are both good for you, right?

Additionally, the different types of vitamin B all come from different types of foods.    Vitamin B deficiencies can lead to health problems.

Seven Chakras and Auras

Seven Chakras and Auras WHAT IS THE ENERGY BODY? The energy body, or subtle body, is a system that carries life force energy through and around us, connecting us to the earth, the divine, our higher selves and each other. Understanding this system is crucial for physical, emotional and spiritual health. The energy body is invisible to most of us; however, we feel and react to it constantly, whether we know it or not. This system is made up of several components that work together, just like the other body systems. What are Chakras and Auras   The aura We all have an aura – whether we can see it or feel it or not. The aura is made of a more “subtle” substance than is the physical body, but this does not make it any the less real, or in fact any the less physical – it is simply physical in a different way. The aura is affected by all kinds of things: the way we think, who we talk to, our environment and so on.  A skilled psychic, or clairvoyant, can see the aura, and tell a lot about a person from what they see. But even people who do not consider themselves remotely psychic can sometimes sense what a person is like by tuning in to the person’s aura instinctively.    The condition of the aura affects the condition of the physical body, and vice versa. The Aetherius Society’s spiritual healing technique is about bringing harmony and balance through the chakras (see below) into the aura, where it must, by the Divine law of nature, have its reflection in the physical body.   The chakras Subtle energies flow in and out of us through the chakras, also known as the psychic centers. The spine is like a stem and the chakras are like flowers growing from this stem, through the body, and out a few inches in front of the body, in the aura. Our thinking and our health are inextricably linked with the flow of energy through the chakras, which makes an understanding of them very important.  The seven chakras are the centers in our bodies in which energy flows through, they are   1. Root Chakra — Represents our foundation and feeling of being grounded.  Location: Base of spine in tailbone area.   Emotional issues: Survival issues such as financial independence, money and food.

Oxygen is killing you in an unpainful way

Oxygen is killing you in an unpainful way Yes, oxygen is a very reactive element and it has all the potential of killing us. The route  "About 20% atmospheric oxygen> breathing>uptake of O2 by hemoglobin in lungs>delivery to body cells through arteries>cellular respiration>glucose breakdown & release of energy" is the safest desirable way our body handles this reactive element.   Oxygen atom let loose in the cell at place other than the nature's 'respiratory cage' is like a bull in china shop.  It can damage the cell and cause cell death. On going battles:  Such 'reactive oxygen species (ROS)' are routinely produced in our body cells and are taken care of (neutralized) by an 'anti oxidant defense system' to benign molecules like water:   Putting it simply  the above figure shows our body metabolism 'neutralizing' a ROS  O2'- to water using an enzyme super-oxide dismutase (SOD) etc. Reactive oxygen species can destroy DNA, cell membranes and cause cancer.

Coca leaf Health benefits and Side effects

Coca leaf Health benefits and Side effects Coca is a plant. It is the source of cocaine, which is an illegal drug that is used nasally, injected, or smoked for mind-altering effects. Cocaine is also an FDA-approved Schedule C-II drug. This means cocaine can be prescribed by a healthcare provider, but the process is strictly regulated. The worry about cocaine is that it is unsafe and highly addictive.  Despite safety concerns and illegality, the coca leaf is used to make medicine.    People chew coca leaves to relieve hunger and fatigue and to enhance physical performance.    Coca extracts are used for stimulating stomach function, causing sedation, and treating asthma, colds, and other ailments.    Coca tea is used for altitude sickness in the Peruvian Andes and elsewhere.    A form of cocaine that can be applied to the skin is available by prescription. It is used to numb eye, nose, and throat pain; and to narrow blood vessels.    In manufacturing, coca extract with the cocaine removed is used to flavor cola drinks and food products.   How does it work?   The cocaine found in coca can cause an increase in brain activity and have numbing (anesthetic) effects. Cocaine is highly addictive. Nutrition Benefits of the Coca Leaf: The coca leaf has been found to be a valuable dietary supplement. Several studies analyzed the nutrition characteristics of the coca leaf. Two notable ones include, a 2009 study published in the Food & Nutrition Bulletin (Can coca leaves contribute to improving the nutritional status of the Andean population?, Penny, Zavaleta, et al.) and a1975 Harvard study (Nutritional Value of Coca Leaf, Duke, Aulick, Plowman). They found that per 100g the leaves contained:     Carbohydrates (44.3 g)

Coca Tea Health Benefits and Side Effects

Coca Tea Health Benefits and Side Effects Interesting Coca Facts: Coca grows in the form of shrub that can reach 7 to 10 feet in height. It produces numerous straight branches. Coca develops thin, bright green, oval leaves that are spirally arranged on the branches. Coca produces small, yellowish-white flowers arranged in small clusters on the short flowering stalks. Flowers contain both types of reproductive organs (perfect flowers). Fruit of coca are red berries filled with numerous seed. Coca propagates via seed and stem cuttings. Birds eat red berries and eliminate undigested seed via feces (they facilitate dispersal of seed in the wild). Leaves of coca are rich source of vitamins A, B2 and E and minerals such as calcium (they contain more calcium than milk), iron and phosphorus. Leaves of coca are also excellent source of proteins. Coca leaves have pleasant, pungent taste and they produce warm sensation in the mouth. They are used for the manufacture of tea, granola bars, candies and cookies in the Andean region. Chemist Angelo Mariana created sweet wine known as Vin Mariani during the 1864 using the extract of coca leaves. This wine was very popular among celebrities such as Queen Victoria, Pope Leo XIII, Thomas Edison, Alexander Dumas and Jules Verne. One of the most famous beverages in the world, "Coca-Cola", is made of cocaine-free coca leaves. Original recipe (created in 1886) contained a "pinch of coca leaves". Coca-Cola instantly gained popularity because of its invigorating and stimulating effects. Coca leaves played important role in the spiritual and religious rituals of ancient Incas. Coca leaves can be chewed, smoked (wrapped in the form of cigarettes) or consumed in the form of tea. South Americans use coca leaves to suppress altitude sickness and to reduce feeling of hunger, thirst and pain. Coca leaves also provide energy and stamina required for everyday activities. People usually consume leaves of coca between the meals and during the break in the work. Coca leaves can prevent development of certain types of cardiovascular disorders, colon cancer and dental caries. Leaves are also useful in treatment of depression, hypertension, diabetes, obesity and bronchitis. Coca leaves contain 14 different types of alkaloids. The best known, benzoylmethylecgonine alkaloid, is used for the manufacture of cocaine, psychoactive substance which produces euphoric effects. Columbia is the greatest manufacturer of coca (and cocaine) in the world. Coca is perennial plant that can survive 20 to 30 years in the wild. Coca Tea, How it is made and some facts Holy coca leaf infusion   Coca tea (known in Peru as mate de coca) , is an herbal tea  made from the leaves of the coca plant. The coca leaf is cut and put in a tea bag and is used as a normal tisane: by dipping a coca tea bag in hot water. Mate de coca is a very popular tisane in Peru where it is consumed as a digestive

Interesting Facts About English Language

Interesting Facts About English Language History of English The history of the English language really started with the arrival of three Germanic tribes who invaded Britain during the 5th century AD. These tribes, the Angles, the Saxons and the Jutes, crossed the North Sea from what today is Denmark and northern Germany. At that time the inhabitants of Britain spoke a Celtic language. But most of the Celtic speakers were pushed west and north by the invaders - mainly into what is now Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The Angles came from "Englaland" [sic] and their language was called "Englisc" - from which the words "England" and "English" are derived. Old English (450-1100 AD) The invading Germanic tribes spoke similar languages, which in Britain developed into what we now call Old English. Old English did not sound or look like English today. Native English speakers now would have great difficulty understanding Old English. Nevertheless, about half of the most commonly used words in Modern English have Old English roots. The words be, strong and water, for example, derive from Old English. Old English was spoken until around 1100. Modern English Early Modern English (1500-1800) Towards the end of Middle English, a sudden and distinct change in pronunciation (the Great Vowel Shift) started, with vowels being pronounced shorter and shorter. From the 16th century the British had contact with many peoples from around

Amazing Health Benefits Of Pumpkin Seed

Amazing Health Benefits Of Pumpkin Seed Heart Healthy Magnesium One-quarter cup of pumpkin seeds contains nearly half of the recommended daily amount of magnesium, which participates in a wide range of vitally important physiological functions, including the creation of ATP (adenosine triphosphate, the energy molecules of your body), the synthesis of RNA and DNA, the pumping of your heart, proper bone and tooth formation, relaxation of your blood vessels, and proper bowel function.  Magnesium has been shown to benefit your blood pressure and help prevent sudden cardiac arrest, heart attack, and stroke, yet an estimated 80 percent of Americans are deficient in this important mineral.   Zinc for Immune Support Pumpkin seeds are a rich source of zinc (one ounce contains more than 2 mg of this beneficial mineral). Zinc is important to your body in many ways, including immunity, cell growth and division, sleep, mood, your senses of taste and smell, eye and skin health, insulin regulation, and male sexual function.  Many are deficient in zinc due to mineral-depleted soils, drug effects, plant-based diets, and other diets high in grain. This deficiency is associated with increased colds and flu, chronic fatigue, depression, acne, low birth weight babies, learning problems and poor school performance in children, among others.   Plant-Based Omega-3 Fats Raw nuts and seeds, including pumpkin seeds,

Iron Deficiency

Iron Deficiency WHO claims world most common nutrition disorder is Iron deficiency!! Iron deficiency is the most common and widespread nutritional disorder in the world. As well as affecting a large number of children and women in developing countries, it is the only nutrient deficiency which is also significantly prevalent in Industralized Countries. The numbers are staggering: 2 billion people – over 30% of the world’s population – are anaemic, many due to iron deficiency, and in resource-poor areas, this is frequently exacerbated by infectious diseases. Malaria, HIV/AIDS, hookworm infestation, schistosomiasis, and other infections such as tuberculosis are particularly important factors contributing to the high prevalence of anaemia in some areas. What is iron deficiency anemia? Anemia occurs when you have a level of red blood cells (RBCs) in your blood that is lower than normal. Iron deficiency anemia is the most common type of anemia, and it occurs when your body doesn’t have enough of the mineral iron. Your body needs iron to make a protein called hemoglobin. This protein is responsible for carrying oxygen to your body’s tissues, which is essential for your tissues and muscles to function effectively. When there isn’t enough iron in your blood stream, the rest of your body can’t get the amount of oxygen it needs.  While the condition may be common, a lot of people don’t know they have iron deficiency anemia. It’s possible to experience the symptoms for years without ever knowing the cause.    In women of childbearing age, the most common cause of iron deficiency anemia is a loss of iron in the blood due to heavy menstruation or pregnancy. A poor diet or certain intestinal diseases that affect how the body absorbs iron can also cause iron deficiency anemia. Doctors normally treat the condition with iron supplements or changes to diet.   Some facts about iron deficiency: Iron is used to produce red blood cells, which help store and carry oxygen in the blood1. If you have fewer red blood cells than normal, your organs and tissues will not get as much oxygen as they usually would1. Iron deficiency adversely affects:

Muesli for a healthy diet

Muesli for a healthy diet You may have heard that muesli is a great healthy breakfast, but do you know what it is and whether it's actually good for you? When it was first developed, muesli was typically a dry cereal made from toasted whole oats, nuts, fruit and wheat flakes. Now, you can find many versions, including gluten-free muesli, fresh muesli (soaked overnight in water or fruit juice to soften), toasted or untoasted muesli, and its close cousin: granola. Depending on how the muesli is made, it's often more natural and contains less calories and sugar than granola, which usually has more added syrup to aid in the toasting. 1. Dried: The dried muesli is the one that you often see and buy from the supermarkets. You can easily have dried muesli by mixing it in cold or hot milk, chocolate drink, yogurt and coffee. Some people also have it with water. 2. Fresh: The fresh muesli is made by soaking oats overnight in plain water or fresh fruit juice and blended with fruits like apple or banana the morning after.

Interesting Facts about the Sanskrit language

Interesting Facts about the Sanskrit language Origin of Sanskrit language Sanskrit is one of the official languages of India and is popularly known as a classical language of the country. It is considered as the mother of all languages. It belongs to the Indic group of language family of Indo-European and its descendents which are Indo-Iranian & Indo Aryan. The meaning of Sanskrit is refined, decorated or produced in perfect form. The language is also known for its clarity and beauty. It is also a language of Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Sanskrit is now attracting the modern world. This is the only language that is used in holy functions and ceremonies of Hindus, as it has always been regarded as the sacred language of the religion. Sanskrit mantras, when recited in combination with the sound vibration, have a specific effect on the mind and the psyche of the individual. It is said that Brahma was the creator and introduced Sanskrit language to the Sages of celestial bodies. Therefore, this language is also called Dev Vani, which means the language of gods. It was during 18th century when a similarity between Sanskrit, Latin and Greek was found, which gave the reason to study and discover the relationship of all Indo-European languages. The earliest form of Sanskrit language was Vedic Sanskrit that came approximately around 1500-200 B.C. This was the period when knowledge was imparted orally through the generations. VEDIC SANSKRIT Sanskrit in terms of its literary association is classified into two different periods, the Vedic and Classical. Vedic Sanskrit is found in the Vedas sacred texts, especially the Rig Veda, the Puranas, and the Upanishads, where the most original form of the language was used. The composition of the Vedas is traced to the period of 1000 to 500 BCE, until when Sanskrit had a vigorous tradition of being used consistently through oral communication. This early Sanskrit is rich in vocabulary, phonology, grammar, and syntax, which remains undiluted in its purity to this day. It consists of 52 letters in total,

radar some interesting facts

radar some interesting facts  radar (radio detection and ranging) basic  Radar is an acronym for "radio detection and ranging." A radar system usually operates in the ultra-high-frequency (UHF) or microwave part of the radio-frequency (RF) spectrum, and is used to detect the position and/or movement of objects. Radar can track storm systems, because precipitation reflects electromagnetic fields at certain frequencies. Radar can also render precise maps. Radar systems are widely used in air-traffic control, aircraft navigation, and marine navigation. Classification of radar based on function Primary Radar: A Primary Radar transmits high-frequency signals toward the targets. The transmitted pulses are reflected by the target and then received by the same radar. The reflected energy or the echoes are further processed to extract target information. Secondary Radar: Secondary radar units work with active answer signals. In addition to primary radar, this type of radar uses a transponder on the airborne target/object. The ground unit, called interrogator, transmits coded pulses (after modulation) towards the target. The transponder on the airborne object receives the pulse, decodes it, induces the coder to prepare the suitable answer, and then transmits the interrogated information back to the ground unit. The interrogator/ground unit demodulates the answer. The information is displayed on the display of the primary radar. The secondary radar unit transmits and also receives high-frequency impulses, the so called interrogation. This isn't simply reflected, but received by the target by means of a transponder which receives and processes. After

The best healthiest leafy greens

The best healthiest leafy greens Why green leafs are important in diet Eat Green - leafy and other colour ful vegetables to stay Healthy and fit.Green and green leafy vegetables are rich source of essential minerals and vitamins;they help to detoxify our body and regular intake of vegetables helps to keep away the serious diseases. Green and leafy vegetables are rich source of essential vitamins including A, B, C, E and K. Greens are high in antioxidants, which protect cells from free radical cell damage and also help to improve vision naturally. Other nutrients include, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, calcium, folic acid and omega-3 fatty acids. Each of them is needed for proper functioning of our systems. Most of all vegetables are extremely low in fat and carbohydrates – ideal options for weight watchers. The high amount of fibers present in green veggies helps to get rid of waste and toxins. Fiber keeps bowel movements regular; prevent constipation, and other diseases of digestive system.    It has been found in studies that regular intake of green and leafy vegetables can lower the risk of development of serious diseases including cancer and heart diseases, as they are rich in necessary vitamins and minerals, do not contain unhealthy fats (bad cholesterol) and are low in calories. MICROGREENS Here’s proof that great things come in small packages. Microgreens—which are the underdeveloped greens of vegetables such as kale, arugula, and broccoli that are harvested just one to two weeks after planting—are a treasure trove of vital nutrients. A 2012 study lead by scientists at the U.S. Department of Agriculture found that several varieties of microgreens including cabbage and cilantro contain nutrient levels such as vitamins C and E up to six times greater than those found in the mature plants. During early development, vegetables need a full arsenal of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to support their growth, so they’re packed with more of the good stuff. Ranging in flavor from peppery to tangy, use microgreens to punch up salads, soups, and sandwiches. Eat outside the bowl: Place 1 packed cup microgreens, 1 chopped shallot, 1 minced garlic clove, zest and juice of 1/2 lemon, 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a food processor and pulse until combined. With the machine running, pour in 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil through the feed tube and blend until just slightly chunky. Serve this vibrant sauce over fish or chicken. KALE When it comes to grown-up greens, kale is deserving of its superfood epithet. It absolutely smashes its competitors in terms of lutein, a potent antioxidant shown to protect eyesight, and leads the way with respect to beta-carotene and vitamin C. As a member of the Brassica family along with broccoli and Brussels sprouts, kale also brings sulforaphane to the table, a phytonutrient shown to have cancer-fighting properties. Steaming or sautéing kale will mellow this all-star’s bitter flavor. Eat outside the bowl: For a power-packed creamy smoothie that doesn’t taste like a salad, combine 1 1/2 cups coconut water, 1 ripe avocado, 4 kale leaves, 1 celery stalk, 1 cup frozen mango cubes, 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed, 1 tablespoon honey, and 1 teaspoon fresh ginger in a blender until smooth. Or when you're on the go, stop by Jamba Juice for a Garden Medley, a blend of apple juice, carrot juice, baby spinach, chard, baby kale, and chia seeds. SPINACH Perhaps Popeye should have been a nutritionist instead of a sailor. Among the greens, spinach harbors the most folate, and according

What Are Antioxidants? by Shiju

Foods high in antioxidants  What Are Antioxidants?  While there are many ways to describe what antioxidants do inside the body, one definition of antioxidants is any substance that inhibits oxidation, especially one used to counteract the deterioration of stored food products or removes potentially damaging oxidizing agents in a living organism.     Antioxidants include dozens of food-based substances you may have heard of before, such as carotenoids like beta-carotene, lycopene and vitamin C. These are several examples of antioxidants that inhibit oxidation, or reactions promoted by oxygen, peroxides and/or free radicals. (1) Research suggests that when it comes to longevity and overall health, some of the benefits of consuming antioxidant foods, herbs, teas and supplements include:   Slower signs of aging, including of the skin, eyes, tissue, joints, heart and brain Healthier, more youthful, glowing skin Reduced cancer risk Detoxification support Longer life span Protection against heart disease and stroke Less risk for cognitive problems, such as dementia

Consuming Pumpkin regulates your blood sugar

Consuming Pumpkin regulates your blood sugar   Pumpkin compounds have multiple modes of action against diabetes This study went on to isolate the two compounds responsible for the blood sugar lowering effect and found that trigonelline and nicotinic acid both improved glucose tolerance, with a stronger effect from trigonelline. This is not surprising, since trigonelline is the active compound in fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum), a herb with a long tradition of use in India for the treatment of diabetes. Trigonelline acts by supporting the regeneration of beta-cells (the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas), increasing insulin secretion and regulating the activity of enzymes related to glucose metabolism, as well as acting as an antioxidant.   Other members of the squash family also have beneficial effects on blood sugar levels. In Mexico, researchers have found that a kind of pumpkin called the fig-leaf gourd contains the phytochemical D-chiro-inositol, which has blood sugar lowering properties comparable to standard anti-diabetic drugs and is also an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. The bitter melon, another kind of gourd grown widely in Asia, Africa and the Caribbean, has been found to improve insulin sensitivity, increase insulin production, reduce blood sugar levels, suppress

Biomethane Gas Bio transporting fuel

Biomethane Gas Bio transporting fuel What is biomethane Biomethane is a naturally occurring gas which is produced by the so-called anaerobic digestion of organic matter such as dead animal and plant material, manure, sewage, organic waste, etc. Chemically, it is identical to natural gas which is stored deep in the ground and is also produced from dead animal and plant material. However, there are several important differences between biomethane and fossil fuel derived methane despite the fact that both are produced from organic matter. Natural gas is classified as fossil fuel, whereas biomethane is defined as a green source of energy. Like its name suggests, fossil fuel derived methane is produced from thousands or millions of years old fossil remains of organic matter that lies buried deep in the ground. Production of fossil fuel derived methane, however, depends exclusively on its natural reserves which vary greatly from one country to another and are not available in limitless amounts. Biomethane, on the other hand, is produced from “fresh” organic matter which makes it a renewable source of energy that can be produced worldwide. New biomethane-fuelled vehicles In 2004 a group of VW engineers set out with a vision for a large car that could be fuelled by natural gas (fossil or renewable) delivering high performance, a long range, low CO2 per kilometre and no loss of boot space. That vehicle is about to come off the production line in Germany as the VW Passat TSI EcoFuel. The combination of twin superchargers and a turbocharger provide exceptional performance, with 150 bhp and 0 to 60 mph in 9.7 seconds. Its range on biomethane is 420km with a further 400km on petrol. Whilst it is carbon-neutral on biomethane, even on fossil natural gas it has class-leading low CO2 of 129 g/km.

Black cumin seed oil- anti-cancer and anti-aging p

Black cumin seed oil- anti-cancer and anti-aging properties, and several health benefits  Cancer    Croatian scientists evaluated the antitumor activity of thymoquinone and thymohydroquinone in mice and discovered that the two phytochemicals in black seed oil can resulted in 52% decrease in tumor cells! (10)    Being rich in both chemicals, black seed is unique in that it can help prevent and treat cancer through a variety of mechanisms:    Anti-proliferation   Apoptosis induction Cell cycle arrest Reactive oxygen species generation Anti-metastasis Anti-angiogenesis According to one study,  “The anti-tumor effects of thymoquinone have also been investigated in tumor xenograft mice models for colon, prostate, pancreatic and lung cancer. The combination of thymoquinone and conventional chemotherapeutic drugs could produce greater therapeutic effect as well as reduce the toxicity of the latter.”   Legendary Beauty Secret There are a lot of benefits to putting black cumin oil on your skin. Queen Nefertiti and Cleopatra are both said to have relied on it as a beauty tonic, for their skin and hair specifically.  Lots of teenagers (and, let’s face it, many adults too) struggle with acne and blemishes. Black cumin seed oil is antibacterial, so it works to fight the bacteria that cause acne.    It’s such a great acne fighter that I actually wrote a whole blog post on using black cumin for acne a while back.    Black cumin has vitamins A, B and C, potassium, magnesium and zinc in it (in addition to other vitamins and minerals)…and all of these are good for the skin in general. Black cumin oil is very moisturizing and can significantly reduce signs of aging.   Blood Sugar Benefits There are a couple of things that black cumin seed oil does for people with pancreatic health challenges.  Beta cells are created

Easy growing vegetables you have to try in your ho

Easy growing vegetables you have to try in your home garden Lettuce and Other Salad Greens Lettuce grows quickly, is really easy to harvest (just snip the tops off the plants or pick leaves as needed), and takes up very little space. They can even grown in containers, perhaps accompanied by flowers or tucked under taller plants. I've had success directly seeding them even in partly shady areas. Here's more information from Mother News. Tomatoes Possibly the most popular vegetable for any size garden, you can grow tomatoes in hanging baskets or other containers or anywhere they'll get lots of sun and have support for their stalks. Starter plants from the garden center are the easiest to grow. Treehugger recommends the smaller varieties of tomatoes, such as cherry tomatoes: If you're able to provide a little bit of support (a cage or stake) you can grow indeterminate tomatoes fairly easily. However, for the smallest amount of work possible, look for "patio" type tomatoes. These are usually hybrids — some popular patio varieties include 'Patio' and 'Tiny Tim.' If you prefer heirlooms, look for a small-fruited variety like 'Yellow Pear,' 'Chocolate Cherry,' or 'Red Currant.' Small-fruited varieties are easy to grow because, unlike with larger tomatoes, you rarely have to worry about issues like splitting or blossom end rot. Tomatoes will even be fine with a bit of neglect — if you forget to water them, it's not a big deal. Some gardeners swear that tomatoes taste better the less water you give them. One or two small-fruited tomato plants will keep you happily harvesting tomatoes throughout the summer until the first frost. If you plant basil next to the tomato plants, you'll naturally repel pests and even improve the flavor of the tomatoes—and, luckily enough, like other herbs, basil is simple to grow as well.

What is Metabolic Syndrome, and how to diagnose an

What is Metabolic Syndrome, and how to diagnose and prevent. What is metabolic syndrome?  Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of metabolic risk factors that come together in a single individual. These metabolic factors include insulin resistance, hypertension (high blood pressure), cholesterol abnormalities, and an increased risk for blood clotting. Affected individuals are most often overweight or obese. An association between certain metabolic disorders and cardiovascular disease has been known since the 1940s.  Metabolic syndrome is considered to be a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes. Insulin resistance refers to the diminished ability of cells to respond to the action of insulin in promoting the transport of the sugar glucose, from blood into muscles and other tissues. Type 2 diabetes is caused by insulin resistance.  Metabolic syndrome is also known as syndrome X, insulin resistance syndrome, or dysmetabolic syndrome. How Is Metabolic Syndrome Diagnosed?   Your doctor will diagnose metabolic syndrome based on the results of a physical exam and blood tests. You must have at least three of the five metabolic risk factors to be diagnosed with metabolic syndrome.   Metabolic Risk Factors  A Large Waistline  Having a large waistline means that you carry excess weight around your waist (abdominal obesity). This is also called having an "apple-shaped" figure. Your doctor will measure your waist to find out whether you have a large waistline.  A waist measurement of 35 inches or more for women or 40 inches or more for men is a metabolic risk factor. A large waistline means you're at increased risk for heart disease and other health problems.  A High Triglyceride Level  Triglycerides are a type of fat found in the blood. A triglyceride level of 150 mg/dL or higher (or being on medicine to treat high triglycerides) is a metabolic risk factor. (The mg/dL is milligrams per deciliter—the units used to measure triglycerides, cholesterol, and blood sugar.)  A Low HDL Cholesterol Level  HDL cholesterol sometimes is called "good" cholesterol. This is because it helps remove cholesterol from your arteries.

Crispy honey balls with a tender heart seasoned with candied fruit, and sugar decorations. In Naples, this is traditionally a Christmas dessert, but in the rest of Italy, these delicious hone balls are a delicacy for all major festivities!

Cassava Flour, healthy and good baking alternative

Cassava Flour, healthy and good baking alternative What Is Cassava Flour?   A root called yucca is the plant used to produce cassava. Cassava is somewhat synonymous with tapioca, which is the starch extracted from it. The flavor of cassava is very mild, and it works better for binding than other whole-food-based flours, which means gluten-free bakers can bake goods that hold together with less reliance on gums and other starches.   Can Be Used in Place of Wheat Flour   Cassava flour is easy to use in recipes in place of traditional grain-based flours or even gluten-free flour blends. One of the best things about using cassava flour is its neutrality in terms of taste. It doesn’t have a dry, strong or unfamiliar taste or texture that often comes with using some gluten-free flours.   Many people find that cassava can be used in recipes without it even being detected at all and that it’s practically indistinguishable from wheat-based counterparts. Its texture lends well to baking things like brownies, cookies and denser breads, or you can use it in savory dishes to thicken sauces or to form burgers/patties.   Many people like baking with cassava flour since it doesn’t

The importance of Mangrove protection

The importance of Mangrove protection. Mangroves, admittedly, are not only important but crucial for the coastal areas. Since estuarine areas are highly populated areas, the slightest ecological imbalance will take a heavy toll. They play a vital role in stabilizing these areas. No engineering and technological solutions can be sought for stabilizing these areas. Even if we negate all benefits of mangroves as forests, their value as "protector of shore-line" is enough to convince us for conserving them. Mangrove swamps consist of a variety of salt-tolerant trees and shrubs that thrive in shallow and muddy saltwater. A high concentration of nutrients and plankton flows in and out of the lagoons with the tides, making mangrove forests important breeding and nursery grounds for juvenile sharks, green turtles, penguins, flamingos, turtles, rays, seabirds, fishes and invertebrates. Mangroves also provide protection from the waves, strong currents and larger predators. Mangroves are an important feeding area for the endemic Galapagos penguin in Puerto Villamil, Isabela. These penguins are critically endangered, rely highly on the mangrove and are highly susceptible to alterations to the marine ecosystem. Puerto Villamil is the only tropical town on the planet to contain penguins.   Fisheries: Mangrove forests are home to a large variety of fish, crab, shrimp, and mollusk species. These fisheries form an essential source of food for thousands of coastal communities around the world. The forests also serve as nurseries for many fish species, including coral reef fish. A study on the Mesoamerican reef, for example, showed that there are as many as 25 times more fish of some species on reefs close to mangrove areas than in areas where mangroves have been cut down. This makes mangrove forests vitally important to coral reef and commercial fisheries as well.   Timber and plant products: Mangrove wood is resistant to rot and insects, making it extremely valuable. Many coastal and indigenous communities rely on this wood for construction material as well as for fuel. These communities also collect medicinal plants from mangrove ecosystems and use mangrove leaves as animal fodder. Recently, the forests have also been commercially harvested for pulp, wood chip, and charcoal production.   Coastal protection: The dense root systems of mangrove forests trap sediments flowing down rivers and off the land. This helps stabilizes the coastline and prevents erosion from waves and storms. In areas where mangroves have been cleared, coastal damage from hurricanes and typhoons is much more severe.

Dangers of Lithium battery, and safety tips for sa

Dangers of Lithium battery, and safety tips for safe use Lithium batteries are dangerous goods, much like gasoline, propane, and sulphuric acid.  In Canada, the shipping and importing of lithium batteriesFootnote 1 are subject to the Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) Act, 1992 and its Regulations.    Lithium batteries are used in many electronic devices such as cameras, cell phones, laptop computers, medical equipment and power tools.    When you ship or import lithium batteries, including those contained in or packed with devices and equipment, you must meet shipping requirements and declare package contents to postal carriers, couriers or transport companies.   While most lithium batteries are safe, some have overheated and caught fire. Once ignited, they can cause any nearby batteries to overheat and catch fire. These fires are difficult to put out and produce toxic and irritating fumes.  When shipping lithium batteries, it is not always clear which mode of transport will be used. Your shipment may end up on an aircraft, and an aircraft's fire suppression system may be unable to extinguish all types of lithium battery fires.

Super food  Spirulina health benefits

Super food  Spirulina health benefits What exactly is Spirulina?  Spirulina is one of the oldest life forms on Earth. In fact, this blue-green microalgae is partly responsible for producing the oxygen in the planet's atmosphere that billions of years ago allowed the planet's originating life forms to develop. Spirulina is the world's first superfood, and one of the most nutrient-rich foods on Earth.    Spirulina has between 55 and 70% protein (more than beef, chicken, and soybeans), 8 essential and 10 non-essential amino acids, as well as high levels of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), beta-carotene, linoleic acid, arachidonic acid, vitamin B12, iron, calcium, phosphorus, nucleic acids RNA & DNA, chlorophyll, and phycocyanin, a pigment-protein complex that is found only in blue-green algae.   Spirulina Sources Spirulina is a spiral-shaped microalgae that grows naturally in the wild in warm, fresh water lakes. Its deep blue-green color is what gives the water its greenish hue. Spirulina is also cultivated and harvested in man-made reservoirs like those used by Nutrex Hawaii, on the Kona coast of Hawaii.  This particular type of spirulina is the only one of its kind to be cultured in a BioSecure Zone that is free of pesticides, herbicides, and GMOs. Available in both powder and tablet forms, Nutrex Hawaii's 100% vegan Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica® is a unique, superior strain of Spirulina, with the highest known nutritional content in the world.     Health benefits of Spirulina   1. Spirulina is Extremely High in Many Nutrients Spirulina is an organism that grows in both fresh and salt water. It is a type of bacteria called cyanobacterium, which is often referred to as blue-green algae. Just like plants, cyanobacteria can produce energy out of sunlight, via the process called photosynthesis. Spirulina was consumed by the Aztecs back in the day, but became popular again when NASA proposed that it could be grown in space and used by astronauts (1). A standard daily dose of spirulina is 1-3 grams, but doses of up to 10 grams per day have been used effectively. This is what spirulina looks like, in both tablet and powder form: It is actually quite amazing how nutritious it is. A single tablespoon (7 grams) of dried spirulina powder contains (2): Protein: 4 grams. Vitamin B1 (Thiamin): 11% of the RDA. Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin): 15% of the RDA. Vitamin B3 (Niacin): 4% of the RDA. Copper: 21% of the RDA. Iron: 11% of the RDA. It also contains decent amounts of magnesium, potassium and manganese, and small amounts of almost every other nutrient that we need. This is coming with only 20 calories, and 1.7 grams of digestible carbohydrate. Gram for gram, this means that spirulina may literally be the single most nutritious food on the planet. A tablespoon of spirulina contains a small amount of fat (around 1 gram), including both omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids in about a 1.5:1 ratio. The quality of the protein in spirulina is considered excellent, comparable to eggs. It contains all the essential amino acids that we need. It is often claimed that spirulina contains vitamin B12, but this is false. It contains pseudovitamin B12, which has not been shown to be effective in humans (3, 4). Bottom Line: Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae that grows in both salty and fresh water. It may be the single most nutrient-dense food on earth. 2. Spirulina Has Powerful Antioxidant and Anti-inflammatory Properties Oxidative damage can harm our DNA and cells. This damage can drive chronic inflammation, which contributes to cancer and other diseases (5). Spirulina is a fantastic source of antioxidants, which can protect against oxidative damage. The main active component is called phycocyanin. This antioxidant substance also gives spirulina its unique blue-green color. Phycocyanin can fight free radicals and inhibit production of inflammatory signalling molecules, providing impressive antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects (6,

Emeli Sandé – Sweet Architect

Emeli Sandé – Sweet Architect   ARTIST EMELI SANDÉ Emeli Sandé was born in the North East England city of Sunderland to Zambian technology and maths teacher Joel Sandé and his Caucasian English wife. The family moved to rural Alford in Aberdeenshire, Scotland in October 1992 – they were the first mixed-race family to live in the village. Sandé wrote the song "Mountains" about her parents and the struggles that they faced. Her music career began when Sandé's sister sent a video of Emeli playing the piano and singing to Trevor Nelson's BBC Urban music competition. She won and was offered a record deal, but the management that the teenager met via the competition decided it wasn't right for her at the time. "It was the first way I got my foot in the industry and saw what the industry was about," Sandé recalled to Fresh 102.7. "I was 16 and I worked with a lot of artists that have come from these big reality shows." Sandé studied medicine in a five-year course at the University of Glasgow, where she obtained a degree in neuroscience. The song "My Kind of Love" was inspired by her time as a medical

Health benefits of Horse Radish and medicinal prop

Health benefits of Horse Radish and medicinal properties Horseradish is a root vegetable that’s most commonly used as a spice. Known mostly for its strong flavor, when prepared it becomes a popular topping for meat and fish. Horseradish is one of those ancient plants whose origin no one really knows. Some consider that it originated in Hungary or other parts of eastern Europe, as far east as Russia and as far north as Finland. It is mentioned by the ancient herbalist Pliny as being good for medicine but not used as food. Both the root and leaves were used as medicine during the Middle Ages, and the root was used as a condiment in Denmark and Germany during that time. Gerard (1597) mentions it as an accompaniment to fish and meat, and also says that it doesn't grow well with grapevines: “. . if the rootes heerof be planted neere to the vine, it bendeth backward from it as not willing to have fellowship with it.” Horseradish was one of the five bitter herbs (along with coriander, horehound, lettuce, and nettle) eaten historically during the feast of the Passover; in present times, horseradish is still commonly used in the Passover Seder.   Horse Radish Herbal medicinal Properties

7 Foods You Should Never Refrigerate by Shiju

Vitamin E benefits by Shiju

Vitamin E benefits Vitamin E is key for strong immunity and healthy skin and eyes. In recent years, vitamin E supplements have become popular as antioxidants. These are substances that protect cells from damage. However, the risks and benefits of taking vitamin E supplements are still unclear. 1. Balances Cholesterol  Cholesterol is a naturally occurring substance made by the liver and required by the body for the proper function of your cells, nerves and hormones. When cholesterol levels are in their natural state, they’re balanced, normal and healthy. When cholesterol oxidizes, it becomes dangerous. Studies have shown that certain isomers of vitamin E serve as a protective antioxidant that fights cholesterol oxidation. (1) This is because they can fight free radical damage in the body, which leads to cholesterol oxidation.    Tocotrienol isomers of vitamin E have three double bonds that positively impact cardiovascular health due to their ability to reduce activity of an enzyme that controls cholesterol production/synthesis (called HMG-CoA reductase). Tocotrienol isomers can also prevent cell adhesion and therefore slow down progression of atherosclerosis, or hardening/thickening of the arteries. It’s important to note synthetic vitamin E doesn’t seem to have the same benefits of natural forms. Too much alpha-tocopherol can actually interfere with the cholesterol-lowering action of delta and gamma-tocotrienols, which are the two most bioactive tocotrienols and the types linked to cardioprotective activities.     2. Fights Free Radicals and Prevents Disease Development  Free radicals fight and break down the healthy cells in your body, and this can lead to heart disease and cancer. These molecules form naturally in your body, and they can cause severe damage when they accelerate or oxidize. Certain isomers of vitamin E have powerful antioxidant abilities that have the power to reduce free radical damage, fight inflammation, and therefore help naturally slow aging in your cells and fight off health issues like heart disease.    Studies have shown that these can significantly increase immunity, therefore helping prevent both common illnesses and serious conditions from forming. Recent research suggests that for immune enhancement and antioxidant effects, the isomers alpha-tocotrienol, gamma-tocotrienol and to a lesser degree delta-tocotrienol seem to be the most effective.     3. Repairs Damaged Skin  Vitamin E benefits skin by strengthening the capillary walls and improving moisture and elasticity, acting as a natural anti-aging nutrient within your body. Studies have shown that vitamin E reduces inflammation both within your body and on your skin, helping maintain healthy, youthful skin. (4) These antioxidant properties are also helpful when you’re exposed to cigarette smoke or ultraviolet rays from sunlight, protecting against skin cancer.    Taking vitamin E with vitamin C fights skin inflammation after exposure to UV radiation and can also be useful in decreasing signs of acne and eczema. Vitamin E also helps the healing process in the skin. It’s absorbed by the epidermis layer of the skin and can be used to treat sunburn, which is one of the leading causes of skin cancer, among other factors. Because it speeds up cell regeneration, it can be used to treat scars, acne and wrinkles; this makes your skin look healthier and younger.     4. Thickens Hair  Because vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, it helps decrease environmental damage to your hair. It can also promote circulation to the scalp. Vitamin E oil can retain the natural moisture in your skin, which helps your scalp from becoming dry and flakey. This oil also makes your hair look healthier and fresher. You can apply a few drops of vitamin E oil on your hair, especially if it looks dry and dull.     5. Balances Hormones  Vitamin E can play a crucial role in balancing your endocrine and nervous systems, naturally working to balance hormones naturally.  Symptoms of a hormonal imbalance may include PMS, weight gain, allergies, urinary tract infections, changes in the skin, anxiety and fatigue. By keeping your hormones in balance, you will find it easier to maintain a healthy weight, keep a regular menstrual cycle and find yourself feeling more energetic.     6. Helps PMS Symptoms  Taking a vitamin E supplement two to three days before and two to three days after a menstrual period can reduce the cramping, anxiety and cravings and other PMS symptoms. Vitamin E can decrease pain severity and duration, and it can reduce menstrual blood loss. It does this by balancing your hormones naturally, and it helps keep your menstrual cycle regulated.   7. Improves Vision  Vitamin E may help decrease the risk of age-related macular degeneration, which is a common cause of blindness. Keep in mind, in order for vitamin E to be effective for vision, it must also be consumed with adequate intakes of vitamin C, beta-carotene and zinc. It’s also been found that taking high doses of vitamin E and vitamin A daily seems to improve healing and vision in people undergoing laser eye surgery.     8. Helps People with Alzheimer’s Disease  Research shows that the anti-inflammatory activity of tocotrienols contribute to their protection against Alzheimer’s disease. Vitamin E may slow down the worsening of memory loss and functional decline in people with moderately severe Alzheimer’s disease or other neurodegenerative disorders. It may also delay the loss of independence and the need for a caregiver

Most healthy and edible garden weeds

Most healthy and edible garden weeds Weeds are wild, unwanted plants that compete with normal healthy plants for water, light, soil nutrients and space. Weeds are competitive, persistent, pernicious, and interfere negatively with human activity. There are approximately 250,000 species of plants worldwide; of those, about 3% or 8000.species behaves as weeds.   Everywhere you walk, you are probably surrounded by wild edible weeds. These plants likely have among them some great edible as well as medicinal species. It is truly amazing how many useful weeds are pulled or poisoned in peoples gardens everyday throughout the world, yet so many of those could go to better use. 1. Dandelion The quintessential garden and lawn weed, dandelions have a bad reputation among those who want grass that looks as uniform as a golf course, but every part of this common edible weed is tasty both raw and cooked, from the roots to the blossoms. Dandelion leaves can be harvested at any point in the growing season, and while the smaller leaves are considered to be less bitter and more palatable raw, the bigger leaves can be eaten as well, especially as an addition to a green salad. If raw dandelion leaves don't appeal to you, they can also be steamed or added to a stir-fry or soup, which can make them taste less bitter. The flowers are sweet and crunchy, and can be eaten raw, or breaded and fried, or even used to make dandelion wine. The root of the dandelion can be dried and roasted and used as a coffee substitute, or added to any recipe that calls for root vegetables.   2. Purslane   Purslane can often be found in moist garden beds, lawns, and shady areas, where it lies close to the ground and often goes unnoticed. This humble garden weed, however, is a nutritional powerhouse, as it is said to contain more omega-3 fatty acids than any other leafy vegetable, and can be a great addition to a salad or stir-fry, or used to thicken soups or stews. Purslane is a succulent, with a crispy texture, and the leaves and stems can be eaten raw or cooked to add a peppery flavor to any dish.   3. Clover

16 tips for a happy life

16 tips for a happy life  Happiness is a feeling of inner peace and satisfaction. It is usually experienced, when there are no worries, fears or obsessing thoughts. This usually happens, when we do something we love to do, or when we get, win, gain, or achieve something that we value. It seems to be the outcome of positive events, but it actually comes from the inside, triggered by external events.  For most people, happiness seems fleeting and temporary, because they allow external circumstances to affect it. One of the best ways to keep it, is by gaining inner peace through daily meditation. As the mind becomes more peaceful, it becomes easier to choose the happiness habit.   1. Be committed. No matter what goals you have set for yourself in life, you have to be committed. It’s through commitment that you’ll continue to make the improvements needed to better yourself. Whether it’s taking a chance on launching a startup, getting a gym membership to improve your physical well being, or taking a cooking class because you want to become a chef, commitment is what drives us all to become more successful.     2. People care about you, not your success. Let’s be honest. People don’t care about the expensive clothes you wear, how big is the house you own or the car your drive. That’s not to say that they don’t respect your achievements or possessions. Instead, they care you as an individual and they’ll support you no matter what -- because they love you. Believe it!   3. Be grateful everyday. According to researchers Martin Seligman, Robert Emmons, and Michael McCullough, being grateful can result in feeling better about your life, more enthusiastism and more willingness to help others. Being grateful may even reduce coronary artery disease. Take the time to write down what you're grateful each and every day.   4. Take action. In an article in The Atlantic, authors Katty Kay and Claire Shipman share studies on the confidence gap between men and women.  The researchers discovered that confidence is just as important as competence. It was concluded in the article that "[T]aking action bolsters one's belief in one's ability to succeed."

Fenugreek seeds health benefits and home remedies

Fenugreek seeds health benefits and home remedies Fenugreek, also known as methi, is a popular herb commonly found in the Mediterranean region of the world. However, due to its strong medicinal properties and uses in Ayurvedic medicine, it has gained popularity worldwide.  The nutrients found in this herb include iron, manganese, copper, magnesium, phosphorus and vitamin B6. Fenugreek also contains a number of powerful phytonutrients.    The leaves and seeds are both known to possess antimicrobial, antioxidant, antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties.   1. Helps Control Diabetes  This herb is highly beneficial for people who have diabetes. Its hypoglycemic property plays a key role in improving glucose tolerance and lowering blood sugar levels.    Plus, the fiber in fenugreek slows down the absorption of carbohydrates and sugars.    A 2009 study published in the International Journal for Vitamin and Nutrition Research evaluated the hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effects of fenugreek seeds in Type 2 diabetes patients.    This study suggests that 10 grams of fenugreek seeds soaked in hot water may be helpful in controlling high blood sugar.    Also, eating baked goods like bread made with fenugreek flour may help reduce insulin resistance in Type 2 diabetics, according to a 2009 study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food.     Soak 1 to 2 tablespoons of fenugreek seeds in a glass of water overnight. The next morning, drink the water as well as chew the seeds on an empty stomach. Do this daily. You can also eat baked goods made with fenugreek flour. Note: Intake of fenugreek along with diabetes medication can lead to low blood sugar. Hence, talk to your doctor before taking fenugreek.   2. Stimulates Breast Milk Production  For nursing mothers, fenugreek helps stimulate breast milk production. Both the seeds and leaves work as excellent galactagogues to stimulate breast milk production.    A 2011 study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine notes that maternal galactagogue herbal tea supplementation enhances breast milk production and facilitates infant birth weight regain in early postnatal days.    Plus, the magnesium and vitamin content of fenugreek improves the quality of breast milk, which is important for the baby’s overall health. This herb even helps alleviate common post-delivery problems, such as flatulence and body aches.

Seafood Paela Recipe

Seafood Paella Recipe Paella is one of the most popular and famous of global dishes, to define exactly what paella contains is almost impossible. There are as many variations of paella as there are cooks, with many claiming that their recipe is the best tasting or most authentic. The origins of the dish, however, are quite humble. Understanding a little of its history will help explain why so many varieties exist. Valencia in Eastern Spain is the undisputed home of paella. It is one of the largest natural ports in the Mediterranean and has been one of the most important rice-producing areas in Spain since rice was introduced by the Moors over 1200 years ago. In fact, the Spanish word for rice is ‘arroz’, which is derived from Arabic, not Latin like most of Castilian Spanish. Paella was originally farmers' and farm labourers' food, cooked by the workers over a wood fire for the lunchtime meal.  It was made with rice, plus whatever was to hand around the rice fields and countryside: tomatoes, onions and snails, with a few beans added for flavour and texture. Rabbit or duck might also have been added, and for special occasions, chicken plus a touch of saffron for an extra special colour and flavour. Paella was also traditionally eaten straight from the pan in which it was cooked with each person using his own wooden spoon.

Benefits of Blood donating and some interesting fa

Benefits of Blood donating and some interesting facts Human blood cannot be manufactured and it has no substitute. The only way it can be obtained is through a generous DONOR. A WHO Report* from 2015 stated that 108 million blood donations are collected globally, out of which more than half are from high income countries. This figure decreases substantially in middle income countries, and even more so when looking at low income countries. How much blood do I lose? As an adult, you have 8 to 12 pints of blood in your body. When you give a unit (1 pint) of blood, your body will replenish the entire amount you’ve lost.   Whose Lives You’ll Save Each unit you donate (about 1 pint) can be divided into the three primary components — red blood cells, plasma, and platelets — saving up to three lives. Here’s a list of the 5 common lifesaving transfusions and how much blood they require.     1. Car Accidents (50 or more units of blood) 38,300 people were killed and 4.4 million injured on U.S. roads last year. Nearly half of those injuries were considered serious injuries that required medical attention. The numbers are up from previous years, largely because drivers today use smart phones to text, check emails, take selfies, and use social media — all from behind the wheel. 2. Organ Transplants (up to 50 units) Those receiving organ transplants will need varying levels of blood transfusions. A liver transplant will require the most blood at up to 50 units, while other organ transplants require about 10 units.   3. Trauma Patients (up to 50 units) Bleeding after an injury is responsible for over 2 million deaths per year worldwide. Trauma patients need timely attention to avoid a preventable death due to loss of blood; the majority of deaths in trauma patients happen within the first 24 hours of the trauma. A trauma patient may need up to 50 units of red blood cells alone, with additional units of plasma and platelets.   4. Bone Marrow Transplants (45 units) Bone marrow transplants are done to cure a range of diseases, including immune deficiency disorders and several types of cancer. A bone marrow transplant patient needs up to 20 units of red blood cells and 25 units of platelets.   5. Burn Victims (20 units) When burns are superficial, blood volume can return to normal after 24 hours. However, for moderate to severe burn victims, the red blood cells level will decrease, and a blood transfusion is required.   Benefits of donating blood 1. Chance to Save the Human Lives: It is immensely an amazing feeling to be able to assist the doctors to save the lives of the humans. It has been found that there are no alternatives to human blood. The donated blood is divided into many components based on the needs of the needy patients. Each of them are used by unique recipients for different purposes. The newly born babies can benefit from one blood donor because the requirements needed by them are only meagre. A single instance of the blood donation will be able to save about five people.     2. Free Medical Check-up: The donors can donate blood only if they are fit enough. Before the process of every blood donation, a line of health check-ups are performed on the donor for free. This greatly benefits them. For instance, they will come to know about the presence of any abnormalities in blood pressure. This helps them to diagnose the diseases at the early stage before they form medical complications. After the blood donation, the blood is tested for some infections. The people will be informed if any abnormality is found in those tests. The people who donate their blood frequent can enjoy a good health check-up for free which can

Oregano health benefits and home remedies

Oregano health benefits and home remedies Oregano comes from Origanum, a genus of the mint family (Lamiaceae). Oregano originally came from warm climates in western and southwestern Eurasia and the Mediterranean region.  Oregano is a perennial plant that has the characteristics of an herb, green and leaflike, with round shaped leaves.  As a perennial, oregano is often grown for 3–4 years but in northern climates where the temperature is colder it is often grown as an annual. Oregano is most often used in Italian cuisine. It is a key ingredient in tomato sauces and on pizza, pizza sauces, vegetable dishes and for adding flavor to grilled meat. Oregano is a great substitute for marjoram or thyme if you don’t have these in your spice cabinet.

Balance dieting tips for Vegans

Balance dieting tips for Vegans   A vegetarian does not eat meat or fish, but there are different types of vegetarian. Some consume eggs and dairy products, while the strictest kind, vegans, eat no animal produce at all, including honey. Some people call themselves vegetarians, but they consume fish. It is not necessary to eat meat to get all the nutrients needed for good health. A person who chooses not to eat meat may enjoy better health, because they will eat more plant-based foods, and because they may be more active in making healthy choices. How to balance the diet Reference Intakes (RI) Nutrition needs vary depending on your sex, size, age and activity levels, so use this chart as a general guide only. The chart shows the Reference Intakes (RI) or daily recommended amounts for an average, moderately active adult to achieve a healthy, balanced diet for maintaining rather then losing or gaining weight. The RIs for fat, saturated fat, sugar and salt are maximum daily amounts. There is no RI for fibre although health experts suggest we have 30g a day. Don't forget that we are all different with varying needs for energy and nutrients, so this information is for guidance only:   Reference intakes (RI)     Men Women Energy (kcal) 2500 2000 Protein (g) 55                    50                  Carbohydrates (g) 300 260 Sugar (g) 120 90 Fat (g) 95 70 Saturates (g) 30 20 Salt (g) 6 6   Perfect portions   Foods Portion size Carbs like cereal/rice/pasta/potato (include 1 portion at each main meal and ensure it fills no more than ¼ of your plate) Your clenched fist                               Protein like tofu/beans/pulses (aim to have a portion at each meal) Palm of your hand Nuts/seeds (as a snack or part of a meal) 1 of your cupped hands Vegan spreads/nut butter (no more than 2 or 3 times a day) The tip of your thumb Savouries like popcorn/crisps (as a snack/treat) 2 of your cupped hands Bakes like vegan brownies/flapjacks (as an occasional treat) 2 of your fingers

Coq Au Vin recipe

Coq Au Vin recipe  The basic components of coq-au-vin (literally “rooster in wine”) are chicken on the bone and wine (traditionally Burgundy, but in theory one could use anything, with Riesling popular in Alsace). The recipe is not dissimilar from another of the well-known traditional French dishes, boeuf bourguignon. Both begin with sautéed onions and garlic in butter, then add meat that should be browned, and finally include mushrooms and some fatty bacon (lardons), before pouring in enough wine to cover the meat. Then it’s a simple matter of letting it braise, low and slow. This is best prepared in a Dutch oven, like a Le Creuset pot if you want to go all-French, and can be made either on the stovetop or in the oven, so long as the pot is covered. The longer you cook, provided the contents of the pot remain moist, the richer the flavor and the softer the meat. It is as fool-proof as cooking can get, which means that even I, who cook with ten thumbs, can do a pretty good job with it. Braised stews have long been a peasant favorite because they make an elaborate, wholesome meal out of whatever ingredients you can afford or scrounge together. Any root vegetables can be added, any cut of meat can be used, even tough cuts (as in beef bourguignon, which require long cooking to become tender)—the very fact that the dish is “coq” au vin and not “poulet” (chicken) au vin indicates its peasant origins, for rooster meat is much tougher than chicken, requiring long slow braising to make it edible, whereas chicken could be cooked a short amount of time and be delicious. In practice, low-income families could throw any ingredients they have available into a pot of water, if there was no wine handy, and transform it into a filling stew. Ingredients 2 tablespoons good olive oil 4 ounces good bacon or pancetta, diced

Cos and pros of vegetarianism

Cos and pros of vegetarianism  People who generally exclude meat, fish and chicken from their diet and eat a variety of plant-based foods are called vegetarians. Most vegetarian diets are rich in fibre and low in fat, especially the unhealthy saturated kind.   Vegetarian” broadly refers to those who restricts consumption of animal products like meat, fish, poultry etc., and largely rely on plant based foods like fruits, veggies, whole grains, dairy, pulses etc., for living. Within this group, there are various levels of vegetarians. These are classified from most restrictive to those who are less so. Vegan : They do not consume animal products or animal by-products like meat, poultry, fish, eggs, milk/milk products, honey etc. Also, they don’t use animal products like silk, wool, leather etc for commercial use. In other words, these are individuals who not only do not eat animals, but who also choose not to use products that come from animals.   Lacto-Vegetarian: These individuals  don’t consume meat, poultry, fish or eggs. But, they readily consume milk and milk products like yogurt, and cheese. Most of the Vegetarians in South Asian subcontinent fall under this category. Ovo-Vegetarian: They avoid meat, poultry, fish and DAIRY. But, allow themselves to consume eggs. Lacto-Ovo Vegetarian: People under this level restricts meat, poultry and fish. However, they consume egg as well as dairy. This is the most common type of vegetarian across the globe. Vegetarians must confirm, they consume some essential nutrition’s Vitamin B12: Plant foods are naturally lacking in Vitamin B12. So vegans who avoid dairy products and eggs need a regular source of this vitamin. To avoid deficiency, a good solution would be a fortified breakfast cereal. Protein: Proteins from plant foods can meet protein needs if the right food combination is eaten. Lacto-ovo-vegetarians easily get their protein from dairy products and eggs. Iron: Some vegetarians have a lower iron count than non-vegetarians. Iron from plant food does not absorb as well as that from meat, so vegetarians need to increase their iron intake and also consume a Vitamin C-rich food source to enhance iron absorption. Zinc: Vegetarians also appear to have a lower intake of zinc than recommended. Soy foods, legumes, nuts and supplemented foods are good sources. Calcium and vitamin D: Calcium intake of lacto-vegetarians is comparable to non-vegetarians. But when milk products are excluded, calcium levels drop. Such vegetarians are advised to have soy milk fortified with calcium and vitamin D, in addition to getting adequate sun exposure. Riboflavin: Vegetarians also have low levels of riboflavin than non-vegetarians. This can be corrected through the consumption of milk, almonds, fortified breakfast cereals, yogurt, soy, bananas and broccoli. Advantages of vegetarianism 1. Protection From The Diseases : The vegetarian foods have been known for long to protect the body from the different diseases like the cancer, chronic fatigue, cholesterol problems and diabetes.   The vegetarian foods are low in the amount of the unsaturated fats and are therefore very healthy to eat. The well planned low fat foods are the saviour of the day as they will help to reduce the chances for the person to be affected by the coronary artery problems. These problems are the sole reason for the various deaths in the United States of America. The vegetarian people have low risks of the cardiovascular problems when compared to the people who follow non vegetarian

Borscht soup recipe

Borscht soup recipe Borsch, also spelled borscht, borsht, or bortsch, beet soup of the Slavic countries. Although borsch is important in Russian and Polish cuisines, Ukraine is frequently cited as its place of origin. Its name is thought to be derived from the Slavic word for the cow parsnip, or common hogweed (Heracleum sphondylium), or from a fermented beverage derived from that plant. The more-palatable cultivated beet eventually replaced the wild cow parsnip as the basis of the soup.   Borsches are eaten hot or cold. Some are clear and light, others thick and substantial. Many recipes counterbalance the sweetness of the beets with the addition of kvass (also spelled kvas). The term kvass may refer to a sour, slightly alcoholic beer made from bread or to a concoction of fermented beets; both are used. Vinegar, lemon juice, or citric acid can be added to achieve a similar effect.

The most Dangerous Borders In the world

The most Dangerous Borders In the world  11. Iraq/Iran One of the most dangerous borders in the world lies between Iraq and Iran, running exactly from the Shatt-al-Arab river to the Turkish border. Though the boundary has been defined for hundreds of years, disputes over the territory (specifically, over use of the river) have been ongoing. In 1980, Iraq accused Iran of illegally occupying Iraqi territory and launched missiles. Eight years and 1 million lives later, the two countries signed a UN peace resolution. Even this, however, did not stop fighting, and cross-border attacks have continued. 10. Pakistan/Afghanistan The border between Pakistan and Afghanistan is called the Durand Line and stretches for 1,510 miles. The disputes here date back over many years and in recent times, the border was disputed by the Taliban and later the Afghanistan president in 2001. In 2003, military forces from both sides were involved in armed conflict there and 4 years later, Pakistan began constructing fence lines as a means to keep Taliban militants from crossing. The danger here is in the lack of government control with people on all side carrying arms, and this site sees illegal smuggling, murders, and kidnappings. Most recently, a major highway connecting the two countries was closed down due to a disagreement over a Pakistani-constructed gate. The dispute ended in cross-border shootings that left 3 dead and 24 wounded. 9. China/North Korea China and North Korea are separated by two rivers, the Tumen and Yalu, and the Paektu mountains. The border here has poor security and receives many people fleeing North Korea. Over the last decade, both countries have begun to construct fences and walls. Since the beginning of Kim Jong-Il’s regime and with increased North Korean immigrants in China, territorial disputes have become a concern. There have also been reports of North Korean soldiers crossing the border to steal food and money as low-level officers receive small food rations. In April 2016, China deployed around 2,000 troops to the border after reports that Pyongyang is planning nuclear testing. China has confirmed that 3 Chinese citizens were killed along the border, investigations are pending.

Chees Fondue Recipe

Chees Fondue Recipe During the 18th century the origin of fondue began in Switzerland as a way to use aged cheeses and breads to feed families who had limited access to fresh foods during the winter time.  Producers of cheese and bread saw their busy season was during the warm months and that the food had to be saved by villagers to be used through the cold winter months.  As the cheese would age and the breads became stale it became more difficult to eat.  The local villagers found that if they heated the cheese with wines, garlic, and herbs they could dip their stale bread which would soften when dipped into the flavorful cheese mixture.  This way of cooking together over one pot and eating by a warm cozy fire became a Swiss winter tradition known as fondue.  The word fondue comes from the French word, ‘fondre’, which means ‘to melt’ and has since then been used to reference many other types of fondue for meats, chicken, seafood, and even chocolate. Ingredients 1  loaf (1 lb) French bread, cut into 1-inch pieces 2  cups shredded Swiss cheese (8 oz) 2

Essential vitamins for your brain health, and supp

Essential vitamins for your brain health, and supplements and foods  1.Thiamine (B1) Vitamins from the B group are considered to be particularly important for good brain health. Thiamin is one of the many B vitamins that is found abundantly in the brain and nerve tissue. It plays a role in the conduction of nerve impulses, according to an article published in The Journal of International Medical Research. Furthermore, a severe lack of this vitamin can lead to Korsakoff syndrome, a chronic memory disorder most often seen in alcoholics and those suffering from diseases such as AIDS. 2. Folic acid (B9) Folic acid refers to different compounds known as folates, and can be obtained from different foods such as spinach, asparagus, and lentils. Half of the body’s stores of this vitamin are in the liver, which is why liver damage can lead to a deficiency of several key B vitamins. Folic acid also plays an important role in the synthesis of amino acids and the formation of nerve tissue. The metabolism of folic acid is highly dependent on the supply of other vitamins of the B group. A deficiency of this and other B-vitamins is associated with developmental problems in children. Furthermore, a study on aged rats found how to improve memory with folic acid supplements for 8 weeks. 3. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) The highest concentration of this essential vitamin is found in the brain, especially in the pituitary gland (400mg/kg). You can get high amounts of this powerful antioxidant from citrus fruits and green vegetables. Vitamin C is important in the synthesis of the neurotransmitter dopamine, but it also protects the brain against oxidative stress. Because this vitamin cannot be stored in the body, it is important you get adequate daily amounts from food, around 90mg daily, according to Mayo Clinic. 4. Calcium As far as minerals are concerned, Calcium is the number one essential mineral for healthy brain functioning. It plays a central role as a nerve cell messenger. It also regulates neurotransmission and controls nerve excitability. Low levels of this essential mineral are usually rare as the body has a large reservoir of this mineral in the bones. However, some drugs can deplete the levels of this mineral which can lead to various health problems. 5. Magnesium Magnesium is important for the conversion of many B vitamins into their active form. In other words, taking any vitamin supplement on its own would be futile without magnesium and other minerals as their interplay is what makes the brain work. One study found that administration of magnesium supplements to aged rats improved working and long-term memory. The magnesium in cell membranes is also important for the transmission of impulses. Furthermore, magnesium and calcium need to be both in ideal amounts in the body to prevent excitability of the nervous system. A deficiency of either one can lead to neurological problems. 6. Zinc Zinc is found in high amounts in certain so-called Zinc-containing neurons which are found exclusively in the forebrain. Scientists don’t know what role zinc plays in the maintenance of brain health, but its deficiency is associated with different neurological and psychological impairments. For instance, alterations in zinc homeostasis were found in Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer sufferers. Foods high in zinc are pumpkin seeds, beef, and shrimp, but you can also find this mineral in some top memory pills available on the market. Supplements for brain health  Vitamin B complex Vitamin B complex plays a crucial role in energy production and brain metabolism. The discovery of these beneficial effects was recognised in the 1930s, when Honekamp, a German physician, successfully treated schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder and epilepsy with yeast and other Vitamin B rich nutrients.   Vitamin B complex consists of 8 vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12. From these, the most important brain boosting vitamins are:   B1 (Thiamine):  Irreplaceable for the nervous and muscular system, thiamine plays a crucial role in nerve impulses. A deficiency in this particular nutrient can cause Korsakoff’s syndrome; a chronic memory loss condition often seen in alcoholics.   B3 (Niacin): Niacin has been found to improve HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) levels, helping to prevent the risk of atherosclerosis (fatty deposits in arteries) consequently, preventing the risk of stroke. Niacin

Acupressure points to relieve from maigraine and h

Acupressure points to relieve from maigraine and head ache  What is acupressure? Acupressure is a therapy developed over 5,000 years ago as an important aspect of Asian, especially Chinese, medicine. It uses precise finger placement and pressure over specific points along the body. These points follow specific channels, known as meridians – the same channels used in acupuncture. According to Asian medical philosophy, activation of these points with pressure (or needles) can improve blood flow, release tension, and enhance or unblock life-energy, known in China as “qi” or in the English-speaking world as “chi.” This release allows energy to flow more freely through the meridians, promoting relaxation, healing and the restoration of proper function. It should be noted that the existence of qi and meridians is doubted by many Western scientists. According to this skeptical view, any healing effect from acupuncture or acupressure sessions is not due to the alteration of subtle energy flows along invisible channels, but rather to the same gross physical effects that happen during any kind of massage therapy, including muscular relaxation and improved regional blood flow. How to apply pressure Be centered, grounded, and connected to your breath and energy Allow your energy to guide you as you gently place your finger or thumb on the acupressure point As you make contact, allow all of your mental focus and awareness to seep through your body to the acupressure point Allow your pressure to sink into the point Always notice how your pressure is being received Ask the person to verbalize if they want more or less pressure. Notice if their breathing becomes restrained (lighten your pressure), or more relaxed (you have the right amount of pressure). Keep your intention focused while sensing the

Types of omega fatty acids and benefits

Types of omega fatty acids and benefits What is omega All fatty acids have an even number of carbon atoms that are attached to each other in a chain. Some have single bonds between the carbon atoms—those are saturated fats, like butter. Those that have double bonds are considered unsaturated. Omega-3s, -6s, and -9s are all types of naturally unsaturated fats, which most experts consider to be far healthier than saturated ones (unless they've been turned into trans fats, that is). OK, back to the chemical structure for just a moment. The beginning of the carbon chain is called the "alpha" end and the opposite one is called the "omega" end. Omega-3s have "3" in their name because the first double bond of the molecule is located three carbon atoms away from the omega end. (You can now probably guess how omega-6s and omega-9s got their names.)    If you followed all of that, give yourself a pat on the back. But if your eyes started to glaze over, that's OK, too. Up next: What you really need to know about these fatty acids from a nutrition standpoint.   There are two main types of fatty acids: saturated and unsaturated. Saturated fats, which are solid at room temperature, you’ll find in animals and tropical plants. Unsaturated fats, which are usually liquid at room temperature, you’ll find in vegetables, seeds, and fatty fish.   Unsaturated fats are classified as either polyunsaturated fats (PUFA), which mainly include omega-3 omega-6 fatty acids, or monounsaturated fats (MUFA), which include omega-9 fatty acids. Types of Omega fatty acids 1)What Are Omega-3 Fatty Acids?   The most important omega-3 fatty acids are alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Alpha-linolenic acid is an essential fatty acid: “essential,” meaning that it must be provided in the diet or through supplementation.  The body can convert ALA into EPA and DHA; however, the conversion is very inefficient, so dietary intake of EPA and DHA is important. EPA and DHA both play a crucial role in the development of the brain and central nervous system. They also have potent anti-inflammatory properties.   Because omega-3 fatty acids are so critical to neurological development, it is theorized that supplementation may aid in the treatment of neurological disorders. In addition, the anti-inflammatory properties of omega-3 fatty acids may lead to improvements in some inflammatory conditions. Unfortunately, in both cases, randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have found that supplementation shows

According to the culinary historian Michael Krondl, both luqmat al-qadi and gulab jamun may have derived from a Persian dish, with rose water syrup being a common connection between the two.

Biotin Health Benefits

Biotin Health Benefits What is biotin? Also known as vitamin H, biotin is one of the B complex vitamins that help the body convert food into energy. The word “biotin” comes from the ancient Greek word “biotos,” which means “life” or “sustenance.” B vitamins, and specifically biotin, help keep your skin, hair, eyes, liver, and nervous system healthy. Biotin is also a crucial nutrient during pregnancy, as it’s important for embryonic growth. Most people get the biotin they need from eating a healthy diet, but there have been many claims that getting more biotin can regulate your blood sugar, promote healthy hair, skin, and nails, and help pregnant moms have healthier babies. Recommended daily allowance Between 30 and 100 micrograms (mcg) per day of biotin is often recommended for adolescents and adults. Because it’s water-soluble, extra biotin will simply pass through your body when you urinate. While most people can handle biotin supplements, some people report mild side effects like nausea and digestive issues. There are no known toxicity symptoms associated with too much biotin. Health benefits of Biotin 1. Thickens Hair One of the biggest benefits of Biotin is that it helps stimulate hair growth, causing hair to thicken and appear more lustrous. Biotin can also help hair look healthier while growing more quickly and sustainably. This is good news for healthy people who want their hair to look its best, as well as those with health issues that lead to lackluster hair. While people with healthy digestive systems can absorb some biotin simply by eating a healthy diet every day, those who suffer from digestive disorders struggle to absorb adequate vitamins and nutrients. Those diagnosed with malabsorption problems like leaky gut syndrome, celiac disease, and Crohn's disease often require elevated nutrient levels in order to receive the vitamins and minerals they need to stay healthy. Along with giving healthy people an extra boost, biotin supplements can help people who struggle with nutrient deficiencies to improve their unhealthy hair loss and dry, brittle hair. 2. Improves Skin For many people, a Vitamin H deficiency can also lead to significant problems with their skin's inner health and outer appearance. Dry, itchy skin is one of the most common issues, although more serious conditions like acne and psoriasis can also arise. Keep in mind that if you don't nourish your skin from the inside out, resulting hormonal issues can result in serious skin problems. In most cases, a biotin supplement can correct the issue, improving skin and helping to create a youthful glow. To address biotin deficiencies, it's important to access the vitamin in the most effective way. While many topical skin and hair products include added biotin, you can't usually absorb this B complex vitamin through skin or hair cells. Instead, you must ingest a biotin supplement to receive all of the vitamin's benefits. 3. Strengthens Nails Along with improving hair and skin, biotin is known for its ability to strengthen nails. In fact, higher doses of biotin have resulted in significant nail health improvement. Studies have shown that those who take a biotin supplement can thicken their nails by up to 25 percent and decrease the amount of nail splitting and breakage they endure. Trial studies also have shown that an impressive 91 percent of participants experience improved nail strength when taking a biotin supplement. 4. Rebuilds Tissues

Tantric life history and wellbeing of Tantric live

Tantric life history and wellbeing of Tantric life  Tantric History Tantra is an ancient eastern spiritual tradition of principles, rituals and techniques for cultivating a conscious life- both in and out of the bedroom, although the bedroom is what we tend to focus on in the west; Tantra has its roots in several major spiritual traditions including Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism, as well as being the birthplace of Yoga. Tantra has a known history going back at least 7000 years, far longer than any of the religious/spiritual practices popular in the world today. For as long as humans have wondered about the mystery of existence, and stood in awe of the primordial power of their sexual nature we have sought to understand it Tantra is not a religion, although Tantric symbology and practices have emerged throughout history in all religions and cultures. Representations of the sacred union of the masculine and feminine principles and the non-duality of this “sacred inner marriage” can be found as far back as 2000 BC in the Indus Valley civilization and the Egyptian old kingdom. Tantric principles are inherent in mystical Judaism (Kabbalah), Christianity and Sufism. Chinese Taoism is another strand of Tantra. Tantra most obviously emerged in India, between 300 and 400 CE, when the first Hindu and Buddhist Tantric texts were written down, as poetic metaphors pointing to oneness and Divine love. These first writings were purposely obscure so that only initiates could understand them. Before that time, Tantric teachings were closely guarded and transmitted orally from master to disciple only after long periods of preparation and purification. nature we have sought to understand it.   Wellbeing of tantric life (kundalini awakening) Tantra is a practice that cultivates awareness of our oneness with existence through sexual awakening. This happens through the opening of the chakras or energy centres in the body. Typically in sexual encounter, we send our sexual energy outwards. We may experience deep bliss for a while, but generally this does not last. With Tantric awareness, our sexual vitality starts to move up our bodies like a snake that uncoils, from the root or base of the body all the way up through the crown. Sexual energy moves from the first chakra up. This process is often known at the Uncoiling of the Snake (sexual energy or kundalini).  First Chakra (root) For many of us, sexual energy or life force is blocked at the base chakra. This happens when we are motivated in our decisions by issues of survival, or by an unwillingness to be in the body. When the first chakra clears, we open to the pulsating power of the earth that rises up through us and initiates our own flow. I have seen in myself and so many others how our estrangement from the earth and the natural world estranges us from the grace of our own bodies. When we get immersed in the mud of her body, mother earth, we find ourselves again, in all our delicious juiciness. Opening the first chakra is really about incarnating, about deciding to be in this body, here, now, fully. In order to get there, we also embrace death as a natural part of this body’s journey. Once we have accepted our death, we can be fully alive. Second Chakra (sacral) The second chakra area (the belly) is where we hold our experience of being loved by others. Our primary love relationships typically are with our families (our tribes) and our lovers. Our tribes and our experiences with lovers often shape our notion of what is possible in love and sex. In exploring the second chakra, we look at how both our sexual ideals and our repressions have been shaped by our tribal loyalties. We also unravel how our love relationships have created our sense of who we are in sex and love. Through awareness, we bring healing and the possibility that we may feel well loved, always. For so many of us, the restrictions, inhibitions and phobias of our tribes have heavily prejudiced us against the natural flow of our sexual bliss. Before we can release these restrictions, we have to bring them to awareness, find and own them in our bodies. We also look at the sexual dreams held by our tribes. Each lover who has touched us has become part of the landscape of our bodies. Opening the second chakra requires taking time to see and celebrate this landscape, and then allow it to change, to resonate with our current truth, with who we most authentically can be now, in our relating, through our sexual flow. The key to unlocking this chakra is to allow spontaneous creativity. Sexual and

Importance of Sodium in Human Body

Importance of Sodium in Human Body Sodium is needed for blood regulation and its absence can cause serious impairment of bodily functions. It is a versatile element and occurs in more than eighty different forms. As an electrolyte, it regulates the bodily fluids and transmits electrical impulses in the body. Unlike other vitamins and minerals, heat has no effect on it. Therefore, it can be used in different ways and preparations without losing its effects. Also, it is an important constituent of nerves and helps to regulate muscle contractions. Although sodium is an essential nutrient in any balanced diet, it can also cause stomach cancer and hypertension. People suffering from kidney problems or edema should restrict their intake to protect against those health risks. In short, it is a vital component in the human diet for the regulation of cellular activity and nervous system function.  Supplemental doses of this nutrient are necessary when you sweat profusely, have sunstroke or suffer from adrenal insufficiency. It is regularly excreted in the urine and poses no inherent toxicity or risk. Blood Pressure Sodium is dissolved in the blood and plays a key role in maintaining blood pressure. Sodium attracts and holds water, so the sodium in the blood helps maintain the liquid portion of the blood. On the other hand, if you consume too much sodium, your body may hold onto extra water, increasing the volume of your blood. Since your blood vessels cannot expand to accommodate this increased blood volume, your blood pressure will rise. High blood pressure is a risk factor for many diseases, including heart problems and stroke. Muscle and Nerve Function Both muscles and nerves require electrical currents to function properly. Muscle and nerve cells generate these electrical currents by controlling the flow of electrically charged molecules, including sodium. For muscle cells, these electrical currents stimulate contraction of the muscle. Nerves, on the other hand, need electrical activity to communicate with other nerves. Cells use molecular pumps to keep sodium levels outside the cell high. When an electrical current is needed, cells can allow the positively charged sodium ions into the cell, generating a positive electrical current. Hyponatremia and Hypernatremia Since sodium is an integral part of nerve and muscle function, it is not surprising that too little or too much sodium in the body can affect both of these organ systems. Low levels of sodium, called hyponatremia, can cause muscle spasms, cramps, headache, irritability, restlessness, nausea and fatigue. More serious signs of hyponatremia include confusion, hallucinations, decreased consciousness and coma. Too much sodium, also known as hypernatremia, can make you lethargic or restless. Hyponatremia may also cause increased deep tendon reflexes, muscle spasticity and seizures. How Much Sodium Should Someone Have in a Day? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the human body needs only 180 to 500 milligrams of sodium per day to maintain its healthy function. However, the CDC recommends an adequate intake of 1,500 milligrams per day to account for sodium lost through sweat. Although there is no benefit to consuming more than the adequate intake, the CDC has set an upper limit of 2,300 milligrams per day -- this is the highest daily amount of

Food Habits and Happiness

Food Habits and Happiness Does your food habits effect your mood Beyond the evidence found in the studies, think for a moment about a time when food made you feel good. And this doesn’t refer to the short-lived gratification that comes with eating a thick slice of chocolate cake. Consider, instead, a meal you have eaten that makes you feel good, tastes good and is also good for you. There is no guilt that comes with such a meal. Hopefully the meal was nutritious, packed full of protein and vegetables or other healthy options — a no guilt meal. Let’s call this scenario Conversely, in scenario think about a time when you ate something and were later filled with regret. Whether it was multiple slices of pizza, a supersized fast food value meal or some other form of food lacking proper nutrition, you likely felt badly afterward. Maybe you became bloated, or perhaps you felt fatigued and guilty. People who continually place themselves in scenario 1 likely have smaller waistlines, better sleep habits, fewer instances of diabetes and other diseases, and less stress. People who often find themselves in scenario 2 are likely caught in a negative cycle. They eat poorly, feel guilty and bad about it, and then eat the wrong foods again as they deal with their negative emotions and guilt.   Eating for happiness Optimal Nutrition for a Healthy Mind and Body Before we delve into the connection between food and mood, let’s begin by investigating what the human body actually needs to stay properly nourished. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the human body needs the following vitamins and minerals: Vitamin A Vitamin B6 Vitamin B12 Vitamin D Vitamin E Vitamin K Calcium Folate Iron  Chromium Selenium Magnesium Zinc Indulge in Brain Food An easy way to start eating healthier and feeling better is to indulge in brain food. Everything in the body is connected, so if your body feels good and you’re eating well, your mood will likely be positive. There are specific foods known to boost brain function, such as the following:  Nuts Avocados Flax seeds Eggs Salmon Blueberries Broccoli  Low-GI whole grains Tomatoes Black currants Pumpkin seeds Nutrition strategies for good mood  Eat often enough  According to research published by the University of Illinois Extension, eating regular meals and snacks at the same times every day helps keep your blood sugar levels steady. Eating at regular intervals helps to ensure that your body has a continuous source of fuel, and this may assist in keeping your mood stable. If you feel like your blood sugar might be dipping frequently, talk to your doctor. This could be a sign of hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia is a health condition that causes people to need to eat frequently. Don’t skip meals Though it may be tempting to rush out the door without breakfast, the Mayo Clinic says that this is a bad idea. Skipping meals actually makes your body less able to assimilate food, and you are more liable to overeat at the next meal. If you keep yourself from getting too hungry, you may be able to avoid a bad mood. Know what to avoid Before you can eat mood-boosting foods, it's important to know which foods to leave off, or limit, on your shopping list. The biggest bad mood culprits are refined carbohydrates, such as sugar. The simple sugars that are in junk foods, such as candy and soda, as well as in everyday foods, such as fruit juice, syrup, and jams, can cause your

Magnesuim defficiency symptoms and solutions

Magnesium deficiency symptoms and solutions What are the symptoms of magnesium deficiency? Magnesium is an important ingredient to so many of the body’s regulatory and biochemical systems that the impact of low levels spans all areas of health and medical practice. Therefore the symptoms of a magnesium deficit fall into two broad categories – the physical symptoms of overt deficiency and the spectrum of disease states linked to low magnesium levels. Symptoms include both: Classic “Clinical” Symptoms. These physical signs of magnesium deficiency are clearly related to both its physiological role and its significant impact on the healthy balance of minerals such as calcium and potassium. Tics, muscle spasms and cramps, seizures, anxiety, and irregular heart rhythms are among the classic signs and symptoms of low magnesium. (A complete list of the symptoms of magnesium deficiency follows.)   “Sub-clinical” or “Latent” Symptoms. These symptoms are present but concealed by an inability to distinguish their signs from other disease states.

Japanese Clear Onion Soup

Japanese Clear Onion Soup  The onion soup diet is kin to the more famous cabbage soup diet, which involves eating a cabbage- and onion-based soup as a staple food for a full week. As the soup is so low in calories, it encourages steady weight loss. However, the soup neglects to fulfill all nutritional needs, and the weight loss is not likely to be permanent. Benefits For people who normally eat many processed and prepared foods, the onion soup diet plan may deliver more vitamins and minerals because it calls for so many fresh vegetables. According to MyPyramid, eating more vegetables and fruits can reduce risks of cancer, diabetes, stroke, heart disease, bone loss and kidney stones. For short-term weight loss, the onion soup diet often proves to be successful due to the very low calorie count it allows each day. Drawbacks Although it can meet the objective of helping you lose weight, the onion soup diet is not a nutritionally sound or healthy way to do so. It doesn’t call for servings from every major food group and does not provide all essential nutrients that the body needs to function at its best. Additionally, the restrictive and limiting nature of the diet make it unsustainable in the long term, meaning that most of the weight it takes off is likely to come back on in a short period of time.

Essential Neurotransmitters for good mood and heal

Essential Neurotransmitters for good mood and health, how to balance the neurotransmitters level What Are Neurotransmitters? The human brain is composed of roughly 86 billion nerve cells or neurons. These brain cells communicate with each other via chemical messengers called neurotransmitters. For a chemical to qualify as a neurotransmitter, it must meet certain criteria. It must be found and produced inside the brain and there must be receptors specific for it alone. A simple analogy for the system of neurotransmitters and receptors is that it works somewhat like a lock and key. Types of Neurotransmitters Scientists have found just over a hundred of these brain chemicals, and it’s believed that ultimately thousands will be discovered. There is more than one way to  categorize the known neurotransmitters. One common way to classify them is by their chemical structure. This puts them into categories like amino acids, peptides, and monoamines. Another way they are often categorized is by their function — whether they are excitatory or inhibitory. Inhibitory neurotransmitters decrease the likelihood that a nerve impulse will fire, whereas excitatory neurotransmitters increase the chances. However, this division is not clear-cut since some neurotransmitters can either excite or inhibit depending on the type of receptor available. What Neurotransmitters Do Neurotransmitters regulate your mood, motivation, cravings, energy, libido, and sleep. They control your ability to focus, concentrate, learn, remember and handle stress. In many ways, they shape how you live your life and who you are. They send messages to your autonomic nervous system which controls involuntary actions like breathing, heart rate, and digestion. Abnormal neurotransmitter activity is responsible for many nervous system diseases and psychiatric disorders. What is the difference between neurotransmitters and hormones? Hormones and neurotransmitters are two types of chemical signaling molecules produced by animals. They are responsible for the behavior and attitudes of the organism. Hormones can be either proteins, lipids or cholesterol-based molecules. Neurotransmitters are proteins. The main difference between hormones and neurotransmitters is that hormones are produced in endocrine glands and are released into the blood stream where they find their targets of action at some distance from its origin whereas neurotransmitters are released into the synaptic gap by a terminal of a stimulated presynaptic nerve cell, transmitting a nerve signal to its neighboring postsynaptic nerve cell.  Neurotransmitter Imbalance Causes It’s estimated that 86% of Americans have suboptimal neurotransmitter levels.  Lifestyle factors certainly play a big role in this. Chronic stress, poor diet, environmental toxins, alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, and recreational drugs are major culprits.  Underlying health conditions such as hormone imbalances, chronic inflammation, thyroid diseases, and blood sugar disorders can also cause neurotransmitter imbalances.  You can also be genetically predisposed to certain neurotransmitter imbalances.  And lastly, there are entire classes of prescription drugs that work by altering neurotransmitter levels. For example, drugs that are dopaminergic work by increasing dopamine activity, while those that are anticholinergic block the synthesis of acetylcholine. What Neurotransmitter “Imbalance” or “Deficiency” Really Means You’ll often hear about “neurotransmitter imbalances,” “low neurotransmitter levels,” or “neurotransmitter deficiencies.” We use these terms on this site too, but the reality is not this simple and these phrases are not technically accurate. A better phrase would be abnormal neurotransmission activity. Because, in fact, there are no reliable ways to measure neurotransmitter levels in the brain and so there are no scientifically accepted norms as to what those levels should be.  What is known is that certain clusters of symptoms are linked to subpar neurotransmitter activity. Each neurotransmitter is a part of a neurotransmitter system which includes the neurotransmitters themselves, their receptor sites, and neurons. Too little of the neurotransmitter is being made or formation is being inhibited. There are too few receptors for the neurotransmitter to bind with. The neurotransmitter receptors aren’t working very well. The neurotransmitter is being broken down too soon. The neurotransmitter is not being appropriately recirculated.   If  you suffer from any of the following? Anxiety Stress Brain Fog Memory loss Inability to Focus Depression ADD/ADHD Insomnia Fatigue Weight Issues Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Migraines It could be that your neurotransmitter levels are imbalanced causing a range of symptoms. Balancing Some Neurotransmitters naturally     DOPAMINE Dopamine is an important neurotransmitter that controls your ability to focus as well as your ability to stay motivated or your drive. Super important for busy entrepreneurs as it also impacts productivity. Dopamine is responsible for: Feelings of pleasure Feelings of satisfaction GI Track health Muscle function and control Focus Motivation When Dopamine is too high: Poor intestinal function

Green Bean Casserole (heart healthy recipe)

Green Bean Casserole (heart healthy recipe) Consuming fruits and vegetables of all kinds can help reduce the risk of many adverse health conditions. Studies have shown flavonoids to play an important role in the prevention of diseases like cancer and heart disease, while offering a wide range of pharmacological benefits, such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, neuroprotective, and antidiabetic effects, to name a few. Emphasizing the "green" in green beans, another study shows that green and yellow vegetables may lower the risk of heart disease and atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Note that while heat processing tests lowered the vitamin C in sweet corn and tomatoes while raising the antioxidant activity, scientists tested two other types of vegetables - a root (beets) and a legume (green beans). The antioxidant activity of beets stayed constant despite an 8 percent loss of vitamin C and 30 percent loss of dietary folate. The interesting result came with the green beans: the vitamin C and folate content in the green beans remained, while noting a 32 percent reduction in phenolic compounds during processing, including a 20 percent decrease in antioxidant activity.3 Researchers concluded that a variation of foods and preparations is the best way to optimize the diet. Many studies have suggested that including more plant foods, such as green beans, in the diet decreases the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and overall mortality.

Fresh water sources disappearing from earth

Fresh water sources disappearing from earth As recently as 20 years ago, there were an estimated 50,000 rivers in China, each covering a flow area of at least 60 square miles. But now, according to China's First National Census of Water, more than 28,000 of these rivers are missing. To put this number into context, China's lost rivers are almost equivalent, in terms of basin area, to the United States losing the entire Mississippi River.  Why have these rivers "vanished" from the maps and national records?    Official explanations from the Chinese government have attributed the significant reduction to statistical discrepancies, water and soil loss, and climate change. The world is running out of water. New NASA satellite data shows that a majority of the world's largest underground aquifers - the predominant source of our drinking water - are being depleted faster than they can be refilled.

Mussel fry, kerala style recipe

Kallumakkaya is a type of seafood with shell.  It is one of the most common seafood. The taste and beauty of this dish is the way of preparation style. Kerala is really famous for a huge variety of seafood, and I would say kallummakaya  is my favorite among all. Kallummakaya is a sea mussel, which lives on hardrocks by sticking near coastal areas in the sea. To remove the shell it has to be washed and boiled in water, which helps the meat to come out fast. The cleaning and extracting the meat is the most difficult part for me actually. You will see black intestine in the center of mussel meat take this out by pressing the buldged center of the mussel. Now a days in super markets, cleaned mussels are easily avaliable.

Benefits of Leafy Greens In Our Diet

Benefits of Leafy Greens In Our Diet Dark green leafy vegetables are nutritional powerhouses filled with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. They are rich in chlorophyll, which alkalinizes the blood, and fiber, which keeps the colon healthy. The USDA recommends eating one-half cup of green leafy vegetables each day to prevent nutrient deficiencies and serious illnesses. There are many varieties of edible green leaves, and they are most nutritious when eaten raw or lightly steamed. Leafy vegetables are ideal for weight management as they are typically low in calories. They are useful inreducing the risk of cancer and heart disease since they are low in fat, high in dietary fiber, and rich in folic acid, vitamin C, potassium and magnesium, as well as containing a host of phytochemicals, such as lutein, beta-cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene. One study showed that an increment of one daily serving of green leafy vegetables, lowered the risk of cardiovascular disease by 11 percent. In the Adventist health study, the frequent consumption of green salads by African-Americans was associated with a substantially lower risk of mortality. 1. Strengthen the Bones   As we grow, our bones become weaker. Eating green, leafy Vegetables like spinach, kale, cabbage, broccoli and many more helps in strengthen the bones. Green vegetables are a great source of Calcium which keeps them healthy and strong.

Healthy Zucchini Snack recipes

Healthy Zucchini Snacks recipes Zucchini, also called courgette in some parts of the world, is believed to have been first cultivated up to 10,000 years ago! Originally grown in parts of South America, at the time it was primarily grown for its beneficial seeds since the wild variety didn’t have much flesh and tasted very bitter. In fact, the ancient zucchini vegetable didn’t even have much resemblance to the kind that we see available in most supermarkets today. A favorite among low-carb dieters and anyone who wants to lose weight fast, zucchini has a very low score on the glycemic index. Due to its high water percentage, zucchini is low in calories, carbs and sugars, but high in essential nutrients like potassium, manganese, and antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin A. To add more filling volume to your meals with little extra calories, you can use zucchini in a variety of different cuisines and recipes: a healthy raw snack, dip, side dish or even vegetarian entrée      1. Salt and Vinegar Zucchini Chips  PIN IT These bites are doppelgängers for our favorite salt and vinegar chips, and with five ingredients, they're as simple as they are tasty. They definitely fall in the category of a make-ahead snack, though, since they spend between two and three hours in the oven. If you make a big enough batch, you can enjoy them all week long—or all at once if late-night snack cravings come calling. 2. Zucchini Bruschetta Sub in zucchini for bruschetta's typical bread base and you've got this appetizer that's incredibly easy to whip up and a source of potassium (from the zucchini) and vitamin C (from the tomatoes). The best news? Baking time is only four minutes, leaving you plenty of time to ponder if you're pronouncing "bruschetta" properly. 3. Baked Zucchini Fries Our snack cravings come on hard and fast, and these zucchini fries are up to the challenge. Just shake the strips in flour, coat them with an egg wash, and dip them in the coating of bread crumbs, cheese, and seasonings. After 15 minutes in the oven, it's snack time—minus the unnecessary grease and saturated fat found in the fast food variety. 4. Zucchini Pizza Bites

Mexican Guacamole recipe

Mexican Guacamole recipe Guacamole dates back to the Aztecs - The Aztecs referred to guacamole as ahuaca-mulli which translates roughly to avocado sauce or avocado mixture. This concoction was very similar to what you might fix now in your own kitchens today.  Avocados, the main ingredient in guacamole are a New World food that became quite popular with the Spaniards.  It is said the Spaniards liked their avocados three ways, with salt, with sugar or both. Although actual guacamole recipes were not well preserved the Spaniards documented their likes for the avocado fruit.  The Aztecs believed the avocado to be an aphrodisiac.  Read more about this topic on our Aphrodisiacs Foods page.  Clearly this had something to do with the popularity of the food with the Spaniards. Another reason for the popularity of the fruit was the fact that the avocado has the highest fat content of any fruit. The Aztecs had a very low fat diet compared with today's standards.  You can understand how a fruit that contained life sustaining fats and  protein could become so highly regarded. How to make guacamole. 2 methods of preparation: the best-known method, prepared with a bowl and fork or made in the molcajete, a Mexican mortar and pestle. Both methods have the authentic Mexican taste.

Edible flowers by Shiju

Edible flowers  The culinary use of flowers dates back thousands of years to the Chinese, Greek and Romans. Many cultures use flowers in their traditional cooking — think of squash blossoms in Italian food and rose petals in Indian food. Adding flowers to your food can be a nice way to add color, flavor and a little whimsy. Some are spicy, and some herbacious, while others are floral and fragrant. The range is surprising. It’s not uncommon to see flower petals used in salads, teas, and as garnish for desserts, but they inspire creative uses as well — roll spicy ones (like chive blossoms) into handmade pasta dough, incorporate floral ones into homemade ice cream, pickle flower buds (like nasturtium) to make ersatz capers, use them to make a floral simple syrup for use in lemonade or cocktails. I once stuffed gladiolus following a recipe for stuffed squash blossoms — they were great. So many possibilities…   Eating flowers safely So. As lovely as eating flowers can be, it can also be a little … deadly. Not to scare you off or anything, but follow these tips for eating flowers safely: Eat flowers you know to be consumable — if you are uncertain, consult a reference book on edible flowers and plants. Eat flowers you have grown yourself, or know to be safe for consumption. Flowers from the florist or nursery have probably been treated with pesticides or other chemicals. Do not eat roadside flowers or those picked in public parks. Both may have been treated with pesticide or herbicide, and roadside flowers may be polluted by car exhaust. Eat only the petals, and remove pistils and stamens before eating. If you suffer from allergies, introduce edible flowers gradually, as they may exacerbate allergies.   To keep flowers fresh, place them on moist paper towels and refrigerate in an airtight container. Some will last up to 10 days this way. Ice water can revitalize limp flowers. How To Choose Edible Flowers – Edible Flower Chart: Begonia – Tuberous begonias and Waxed begonias  – Tuberous Begonias (Begonia X tuberosa) – The leaves, flowers, and stems are edible. Begonia blossoms have a citrus-sour taste. The petals are used in salads and as a garnish.  Stems, also, can be used in place of rhubarb.  The flowers and stems contain oxalic acid and should not be consumed by individuals suffering from gout, kidney stones, or rheumatism. Wax Begonias (Begonia cucullata) – The fleshy leaves and flowers are edible raw or cooked.  They can have a slight bitter after taste and if in water most of the time, a hint of swamp in their flavor. Calendula (Calendula officinalis) – Also called Marigolds.  A wonderful edible flower.  Flavors range from spicy to bitter, tangy to peppery.  Their sharp taste resembles saffron (also known as Poor Mans Saffron).  Has pretty petals in golden-orange hues.  Sprinkle them on soups, pasta or rice dishes, herb butters, and salads.  Petals add a yellow tint to soups, spreads, and scrambled eggs.  Only the petals are edible. Carnations (Dianthus caryophyllus – aka Dianthus) – Carnations can be steeped in wine, candy, or use as cake decoration.  To use the surprisingly sweet petals in desserts, cut them away from the bitter white base of the flower.  Dianthus are the miniature member of the carnation family with light clove-like or nutmeg scent. Petals add color to salads or aspics.  Carnation petals are one of secret ingredients that has been used to make Chartreuse, a French liqueur, since the 17th century. Chrysanthemums (Chrysanthemum coronarium) – Tangy, slightly bitter, ranging in colors from red, white, yellow and orange.  They range in taste from faint peppery to mild cauliflower.  They sould be blanched first and then scatter the petals on a salad.  The leaves can also be used to flavor vinegar.  Always remove the bitter flower base and use petals only.  Young leaves and stems of the Crown Daisy, also known as Chop Suey Greens or Shingiku in Japan, are widely used in oriental stir-fries and as salad seasoning. Clover (Trifolium species) – Sweet, anise-like, licorice.  White and red clover blossoms were used in folk medicine against gout, rheumatism, and leucorrhea.  It was also believed that the texture of fingernails and toenails would improve after drinking clover blossom tea.  Native Americans used whole clover plants in salads, and made a white clover leaf tea for coughs and colds.  Avoid bitter flowers that are turning brown, and choose those with the brightest color, which are tastiest.  Raw flower heads can be difficult to digest. Cornflower (Centaurea cynaus) – Also called Bachelors button.  They have a slightly sweet to spicy, clove-like flavor.  Bloom is a natural food dye.  More commonly used as garnish. Dame’s Rocket (Hesperis matronalis) – Also called Sweet Rocket or Dame’s Violet.  This plant is often mistaken for Phlox.  Phlox has five petals, Dame’s Rocket has just four.  The flowers, which resemble phlox, are deep lavender, and sometimes pink to white.  The plant is part of the mustard family, which also  includes radishes, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and, mustard.  The plant and flowers are edible, but fairly bitter.  The flowers are attractive added to green salads.  The young leaves can also be added to your salad greens (for culinary purposes, the leaves should be picked before the plant flowers).  The seed can also be sprouted and added to salads.  NOTE: It is not the same variety as the herb commonly called Rocket, which is used as a green in salads. Dandelions (Taraxacum officinalis) – Member of the Daisy family.  Flowers are sweetest when picked young.  They have a sweet, honey-like flavor.  Mature flowers are bitter.  Dandelion buds are tastier than the flowers: best to pick these when they are very close to the ground, tightly bunched in the center, and about the size of a small gumball.  Good raw or steamed.  Also made into wine.  Young leaves taste good steamed, or tossed in salads.  When serving a rice dish use dandelion petals like confetti over the rice. Day Lilies (Hemerocallis species) – Slightly sweet with a mild vegetable flavor, like sweet lettuce or melon.  Their flavor is a combination of asparagus and zucchini.  Chewable consistency.  Some people think that different colored blossoms have different flavors.  To use the surprisingly sweet petals in desserts, cut them away from the bitter white base of the flower.  Also great to stuff like squash blossoms.  Flowers look beautiful on composed salad platters or crowning a frosted cake.  Sprinkle the large petals in a spring salad.  In the spring, gather shoots two or three inches tall and use as a substitute for asparagus.  NOTE: Many Lilies contain alkaloids and are NOT edible.  Day Lilies may act as a diuretic or laxative; eat in moderation. English Daisy (Bellis perennis) – The flowers have a mildly bitter taste and are most commonly used for their looks than their flavor. The petals are used as a garnish and in salads. Fuchsia (Fuchsia X hybrida) – Blooms have a slightly acidic flavor.  Explosive colors and graceful shape make it ideal as garnish.  The berries are also edible. Garden Sorrel (Rumex acetosa) – Sorrel flowers are tart, lemon tasting. So use like a lemon: on pizza, a salad topping, in sauces, over cucumber salads. Gladiolus (Gladiolus spp) – Flowers (anthers removed) have a nondescript flavor (taste

Sound healing (subliminal sound therapy) advantage

Sound healing (subliminal sound therapy) advantages Maigraine and head ache relief subliminal Ancient origins of Sound Healing For centuries, from ancient Greeks to Native American medicine men, shamans etc., music has been used in healing practices. The first known culture to heal with sound is the Aboriginal people of Australia. Their wind instrument called “didgeridoo” has been used as a healing tool for at least 40,000 years. The Aborigines uses it to heal broken bones, muscle tears and illness of every kind. Sound vibration healing is also well known in yogic traditions with the use of “bija” which relates to mystical “seed syllables” contained within mantras (healing prayers). As well, in Chinese Qigong (or Qi Gong), specific mantras, chants and sounds are used to stimulate specific organ systems in the body. Tibetans are also well-known for the use of their healing singing bowls (also known as: rin gongs, Himalayan bowls or suzu gongs – see picture). Today, Sound Healing is increasingly embraced as the oldest, most gentle and most profound method of healing that exists.   How Do Subliminal Messages Work? Subliminal

How to process fig at home

How to process fig at home Although dried figs are available throughout the year, there is nothing like the unique taste and texture of fresh figs. They are lusciously sweet with a texture that combines the chewiness of their flesh, the smoothness of their skin, and the crunchiness of their seeds. California figs are available from June through September; some European varieties are available through autumn. Figs grow on the Ficus tree (Ficus carica), which is a member of the Mulberry family. They are unique in that they have an opening, called the "ostiole" or "eye," which is not connected to the tree, but which helps the fruit's development by increasing its communication with the environment. Figs range dramatically in color and subtly in texture depending upon the variety. The majority of figs are dried, either by exposure to sunlight or through an artificial process, creating a sweet and nutritious dried fruit that can be enjoyed throughout the year.    Figs, fresh 1.00 medium (50.00 grams) Calories: 37 GI: medium NutrientDRI/DV  fiber6%  vitamin B64%  copper3%  manganese3%  potassium3%  pantothenic acid3%     3 ways to dry figs  Method1 Drying Figs in the Sun 1 Rinse fully ripe figs. The best indication that a fig is fully ripe is when it falls to the ground. Rinse the figs with cool water to remove dirt and other debris, then pat them dry with a dishcloth or paper towel. 2 Cut the figs in half. Use a paring knife to cut the figs in half from stem to tip on a cutting board. Cutting the figs in half will help them dry more quickly. 3 Lay them on a wire or wooden rack covered with cheesecloth. Put a layer of cheesecloth on top of any wooden or wire rack, such as those intended for cooling or dehydrating. In order to dry properly, the figs need airflow from above and below, so don’t use a solid surface like a baking sheet. Place the figs cut-side up on the cheesecloth.[3] Alternatively, you could put whole figs on wooden skewers and hang them in the sun, using clothespins to attach the skewers to branches or to a clothesline.

10 Everyday Superfoods by Shiju

10 Everyday Super foods Pictured Recipe: Strawberry & Yogurt Parfait Superfoods are multi-taskers—foods brimming with various disease-fighting nutrients, usually without providing too many calories and delivered in a delicious form (think: blueberries). But some foods deemed "super" are a little too exotic to fit into our everyday diets (ahem, goji berry?!) or something—like, say, sardines—that you'd only have once in a while. Healthy? Yes. Would you eat them every day? Probably not. And while we're all for trying new foods, especially the super healthy kind, it's nice to know that you can stock up on superfood staples every week and they'll be easy to fit into your diet. So, here are 10 easy-to-eat, easy-to-find, everyday superfoods to keep eating healthy simple. Get More: 7-Day Superfood Meal Plan 1. Berries Pictured Recipe: Berry-Almond Smoothie Bowl All berries are great sources of fiber—a nutrient that most Americans don't get enough of. Fiber helps keep your digestive system healthy and working properly (ahem...) and is good for your heart and your waistline, since it's so filling. All berries are good for you so be sure to mix it up. In the winter, when berries aren't in season, grab frozen (without sweeteners) which are great for smoothies, oatmeal, or thawed in yogurt. Raspberries boast the most fiber at 8 grams per cup—and also contain ellagic acid, a compound with anti-cancer properties. The same amount of blueberries has half the fiber (4 grams), but is packed with anthocyanins, antioxidants that may help keep memory sharp as you age. A cup of strawberries contains 3 grams of fiber, but more than a full day's recommended dose of skin-firming vitamin C. 2. Eggs Pictured Recipe: Avocado Egg Chilaquiles A source of high-quality protein, eggs might give your meal more staying power too. One egg has about 70 calories and 6 grams of protein. Plus, egg yolks contain lutein and zeaxanthin—two antioxidants

Mushroom Recipes

Mushroom Recipes Easy Roasted Mushrooms Ingredients 2 pounds (900g) button or cremini mushrooms, washed, trimmed, and quartered 1/4 cup (60ml) extra-virgin olive oil Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 8 to 12 sprigs thyme or rosemary 2 tablespoons chopped parsley, chives, tarragon, or other fresh herbs Directions 1. Adjust oven rack to center position and preheat oven to 375°F. Toss mushrooms with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet and spread into an even layer. Spread thyme or rosemary sprigs on top of mushrooms. Transfer to oven and roast until mushrooms release liquid, about 15 minutes. Carefully drain liquid into a separate container and reserve for another use (it's a great vegan seasoning sauce). 2. Return mushrooms to oven and continue roasting until browned but still tender, about 30 minutes longer. Discard thyme or rosemary. Transfer to a bowl and toss with parsley, chives, or tarragon.
