Meet Milk’s Vegan Twin

Monday, July 30th, 2012

This one’s for all those people like me, who do not like milk. Dairy products contain nutrients and proteins essential for the human body but some of us just can’t take it. If you’ve been avoiding dairy because of the smell or taste or something else, here is the perfect alternate-almond milk.

Everyone is trying to lose weight and if you are one among them, you’ll be happy to know that almond milk has great weight management properties. Plain almond milk without any sugars or added flavours contain as little as 60 calories per 8 oz serving size meaning you can get all the goodness of dairy without fearing weight gain.

Almond milk also contains zero cholesterol and about 5mg of sodium per serving. You can have almond milk everyday and consuming foods with less cholesterol and sodium content keeps the heart healthy and regulates blood pressure. Also with a normal intake of almond milk, your body gets 150mg of potassium.

A glass of Almond milk will provide your body with about 30% of daily calcium requirements and 25% of Vitamin D. These two essential nutrients add strength to the bones and are recommended for men, woman, children and even infants. In case you didn’t know, Vitamin D will improve your bodily immunity and decreases chances of osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s disease. Because of the magnesium content in almond milk, the calcium gets better absorbed and you’ll start feeling stronger sooner than with intake of external body supplements.

Almond milk not just keeps you healthy on the inside, but on the outside too. With every serving of almond milk your body gets 50% of daily Vitamin E requirements which is great for skin. Vitamin E keeps your skin glowing and also moderates how the body uses Vitamin A helping improve eye sight. These and many more benefits all in glass-start drinking almond milk today.

A Colourful World For Everyone

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

Colours, they really do make our world don’t they? If you ask me, there is no greater sorrow than not being able to see the wonderful colours that make our world what it is. Just happened to catch an article on a cure for blindness today and it genuinely made me happy. The report talked about how scientists are on the verge of finding a permanent cure for blindness using some sort of new chemical.

Its great to know that scientists are actually trying to help humans rather than creating bombs that can wipe out entire towns. This new breakthrough in the treatment of blindness is thanks to a special chemical which when injected into a defective eye increases sensitivity of nerves thereby helping the person see.

Scientists used the chemical on congenitally blind mice and partially restored their vision. The testing was carried out on mice that were blind by birth. After the mice were injected with the compound, the rodents showed sensitivity to light which is a definite sign of improvement. There is still a long way to go before these chemicals can be used on humans but it’s a start nonetheless.

Scientists call this new wonder chemical AAQ and claims that it is much more effective than electronic chip or gene therapy treatments. The greatest advantage being that the chemical can be customised as per the severity of a patients’ blindness. The dosage can be varied and even used with other medications making it ideal for people of all ages.

The current versions of AAQ chemicals can only activate hyper sensitivity of neurons in the eyes for about a couple of hours but newer improved variants could give patients longer hours of sight. In the future, the chemical composition could be altered to may be make a permanent cure. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope that the cure will be ready in the coming few years.

UK Moms Can’t Wait For School To Reopen

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

I like news on different types of researches and very often, research just confirms what you already know doesn’t it? The latest one is regarding moms, their children and summer holidays. New research shows that four in every ten moms want the summer holidays to end as soon as possible because having kids at home drastically changes their routine. Mothers in the UK are worried that during the summer months, they would have to rely on friends and relatives to take care of their kids.

Its ironic that the months kids look forward to all through the year are what gives parents the scare. Parents find it especially challenging to keep kids occupied during rainy days. Yes, its difficult for moms to adjust their daily routine and it could be a challenge keeping the kids occupied but its only for a few weeks right? There are tons of things you can do to make your kids’ summer vacation both memorable and enjoyable.

First understand what your kids enjoy the most. If your kids are the silent type like my little daughter, you are lucky. They are easier to engage and will quietly sit somewhere with a book or maybe even a video game or two.  Ask your trustworthy neighbours if they have any kids of the same age. Time flies for children when they are having fun so bring all the kids in the neighbourhood together. It will be also easier for parents to take turns taking care of the lot during the summer.

Give your kids small projects that they can do it by themselves. Do not force these projects on them but make it interesting and rewarding. Reward them with candy or their favourite toy for making something creative and soon you’ll have a quiet kid just working away in his own world. With great events coming up in London, a trip to the city might be a good idea. If you use a little imagination, the summer will go by too quickly and you’ll probably just end up wishing it lasted a bit longer.

Meet Your Healthiest Ally, Pomegranate

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

There is never a bad time to have fruits and when it comes to the best of the best, Pomegranate is the undisputed king. Even though the fruit might look a little weird, its just full of wholesome goodness. Your body takes in more toxins than ever before so you’re going to need all the anti-oxidants in the world to stay healthy and pomegranate has plenty of these.

Pomegranate is also a great blood thinner. Does not mean it will make your blood too thin. Pomegranate helps improve blood circulation thereby helping vital organs receive more blood and improve their overall efficiency. Pomegranate is the enemy of cancer and tumours within the human body. Research has shown that this wonder fruit has the capability to prevent cancer from spreading and also killing off cancer infected cells without affecting healthy surrounding cells.

Pomegranate helps improve your digestion and keeps digestive problems at bay. The fruit has a high iron content making it an ideal treatment for patients suffering from anaemia. Over time, your arteries build up plaque and this will lead to heart problems. Daily intake of pomegranate will protect your arteries and reduce chances of heart attacks and other complications.

If you thought all this was good, there is even more. Pomegranate has anti-inflammatory properties that can provide relief to arthritis patients. You can also have pomegranate to get relief from cough and cold. But the biggest benefit of Pomegranate that I can think of right now is its cholesterol reducing capability. The fruit can reduce blood pressure by as much as 6% and this is especially beneficial for daily drinkers. If you don’t like the fruit as it is, you can always drink pomegranate juice and still get all the health benefits. Stay healthy, make friends with Pomegranate right now.
