Some Unique Things About Health and Diet

May 19th, 2014

Keeping on a diet and good exercise helps lengthen your life and gives you more strength to face the day, whether it is a physical or mental challenge. But there are some unique things about fitness and the nutrition you get that you might want to know.

1. Drying Fruit
The next time you want to eat a fruit, avoid eating dried ones, either naturally or processed, because they have no nutrients whatsoever. You might even get in trouble with your diet because of their added preservatives. If they were naturally dried, consume them, but do not expect the same vitamin and antioxidant content.

2. Green Tea and Citrus
Green tea definitely has very positive effects on the human body, but adding citrus on green tea helps stabilize its Catechin content, which helps boost your antioxidant levels that it can survive significantly more than the lifespan of an average enzyme.

3. Clear Urine
If you are getting clear urine at least once or twice a day, you’re in the safe zone for hydration. It is not true that you need eight glasses of water because you also receive hydration from the food you eat. So make sure you see clear urine the next time you pee.

4. Detoxifiers
Detoxifiers claim to clean your body, and juices designed for this purpose are not always helpful. Most of them lack the protein your body needs. Protein helps your metabolism and helps you feeling full. Detoxifiers are useful, but always ensure you have a balanced diet.

Small Tips That Could Grant You Great Health Benefits

July 22nd, 2013

Small things evolve into bigger things if consistency and persistence are present. If you do some small things to help your health, you’re actually giving a whole new dimension to the phrase “prevention is better than cure”. Here is a list of small things you could do that could grant you great health benefits in the future.

1. Floss
Experts say that when you floss on a daily basis after you eat every meal you have in a day, you remove a great amount of bacteria from your teeth. Plaque and bacteria build up on places where teeth brushing couldn’t reach. A small act of flossing on a daily basis can prevent the entrance of oral bacteria into the bloodstream, which could have you grave consequences.

2. Eating Every 2 hours
Eating is an important aspect of everyday life, but if you eat properly every 2 to 3 hours, you can stabilize your metabolism. Experts said that eating healthy snacks twice a day and eating three sets of meals daily could stabilize and improve one’s metabolism effectively. You won’t develop lean muscles without food and you will only go thin if you don’t eat properly.

3. Vitamin D
A good level of Vitamin D could help your body defend itself from cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. Snacking on cereals or soy-based products helps your body increase its receipt of the beneficial vitamin. Add your usual sausage and eggs and you’ll have a fine breakfast with good memory retention and cell life in the future.

Three Tips To Having a Good Night’s Rest

January 10th, 2013

Sleep is when the body recharges its energy to be used for the next day and is the time when the body makes its necessary repairs by making use of reserved energy to fix certain conditions. When one has enough rest, one is energized, but with all the hectic schedule life gives a normal person, having a good night’s rest is quite difficult. Here are some ways to ensure you get a good night’s rest.

1. Sleep Only at Night

Keep schedule of your sleeping habits. As much as you can, avoid sleeping way past 12 AM. The human body is more comfortable sleeping without any lights, and napping during the daylight hours can steal away hours from having a good night’s sleep. Recharging your body during the day, the reserved energy is brought out during the night, leaving you feeling tired even when sleeping the hours off the night schedule.

2. Take a Hot Shower

Showers with enough heat to relax tense muscles help make you get comfortable as you get to the bed. Tense muscles often sleep earlier than your mind, which may feel discomforting for many people and may lead to headaches in the morning due to misplaced adrenaline.

3. Avoid Stimulants

Coffee before sleeping can make you feel tired but energized before you sleep, which makes it difficult to sleep with and you could have headaches in the next day. Avoid eating before you sleep. Eat something 2 hours before sleeping to ensure that the food is digested, or else you may suffer diarrhea. Ensure that you are also sleeping in a silent room and without any distractions.
