Curcuma to Fight Cancer






Long has been known that curcuma ('temu lawak' in Bahasa Indonesia), spice often found in Indonesian food, is beneficial for losing weight and pretty good for our memory capability. Curcuma is almost found in some healthy Asian recipes indeed. Recently researchers find that curcuma also has the ability to kill cancer cells. Curcuma was seen to be an important herb in the natural and successful treatment of several types of cancer. Researchers in Ireland have found definitively that the yellowroot is able to break down cancer cells.
They found that cancer cells began to die 24 hours after they had encountered curcuma. Then it was proven that cancer cells began to dissolve themselves after this encounter. Curcuminoids act by inhibiting some processes that contribute to the survival, proliferation, invasion and metastasis of cancer cells (Kuttan 2007). In fighting Cancer , curcuma has the same benefits of gingerol, substance extracted from ginger. Current researches also strengthen the previous ones that have proven that curcuma lessen the growth of fat cells, making your weight under control.
All the researches were laboratory studies. However, further research needs to shown if curcuma has the same good effects in human body.
Curcuma is a much used spice in the Indonesian kitchen. It has a yellowish color and a rather bitter taste. It is a native genus in Zingiberaceae family in the warm, humid environments of south and southeast Asia. We can call it an ingredient useful for making healthy jamu, as other food recipes to keep us young.

An Udderly Ridiculous Home Remedy

by Doug Smith


Home Remedies - Facts or Quacks?That’s what I recently asked myself. Myths and legends often have their basis in a grain of truth. So I wondered if home remedies, alternative treatments, and folklore cures might also be based on truth. A little research provided these astounding results!Itching For A CureEdward Jenner is widely credited as the father of the smallpox vaccination. However, twenty years earlier in 1774, a quick-thinking English farmer named Benjamin Jesty saved his family from smallpox using some pretty unorthodox methods.Waiting Until The Cows Come HomeIn 1774 the highly infectious and deadly smallpox disease was epidemic. Farmer Jesty, immune to the disease because he had survived it in childhood, feared for the lives of his pregnant wife and children. Many country folk knew that people who had previously caught the milder disease of cowpox from an infected cow did not catch the normally-fatal smallpox disease.A Desperate PlanFrantic to find a solution before his family caught the disease, Jesty took his family to a nearby farm where cows were infected with cowpox. He injected his family with diseased cowpox cells from the cows. Because vacca is Latin for cow, this procedure later became known as vaccination.This Isn’t BullThe mild cowpox disease came and went in the children. His pregnant wife had complications and required the aid of the local doctor. His family did not catch the deadly smallpox disease, but word leaked out. Poor Jesty was ridiculed by his neighbors, who expected his family to turn into cows, or at least grow horns!Edward Jenner was a tireless crusader in promoting the benefits of smallpox vaccination. However, it was a desperate farmer who used his quick wit and country folklore to save his family 20 years earlier.Regardless of whom history credits, this home remedy definitely rates as a fact rather than a quack!Learn more about home remedies through the resources listed below.

Breast Augmentation With Herbs

by Anna Woodward

There are many different options for ways to make the chest look better. For many, that means going to a surgeon and having them implant silicone or sometimes saline inserts to increase the volume and shape of the chest. Other women purchase special undergarments that pad, lift and shape to improve the bust line. However, there is another option that few ladies try and that is no farther than the local grocery store. There are a number of homeopathic and herbal ways to naturally stimulate the body and increase the size of the chest. In fact three simple spices are used abundantly and have been for hundreds of years to achieve natural breast augmentation
There is strong anecdotal evidence dating back to the ancient Greeks that licorice is able to aid in breast augmentation. It contains a chemical called phytoestrogen that works like a hormone in a woman's body, increases the size of the chest, and stimulates milk production. This does not mean that a person should go out and buy a bunch of black licorice candy. The kind you can find in a store is made from synthetic esters and is not the same. Instead, try buying licorice oil and add it to a cup of tea or in baking. This will give a healthy dose of the phytoestrogen and improve the flavor of foods.
A similar herb called fennel is related to the licorice plant. This Mediterranean herb is used extensively in cooking and also contains the chemical phytoestrogen. Of course the information is purely anecdotal and the FDA has not approved it but many have relied on this herb when they have looked to get a natural and safe breast augmentation.
The final herb used is called fenugreek. It does not work the same way as licorice or fennel but the traditional wisdom about this plant has it being even more effective than the previous two. For natural breast augmentation this herb is used all around the world. It is an incredibly effective homeopathic treatment for increasing milk production in lactating women and is used to great effect. There is one thing that must be mentioned before beginning a regimen of fenugreek. It has the unusual side effect of making the sweat and odor of a person smell like maple syrup. Often the urine will also smell like maple syrup. This effect is increased depending on the amount that a person takes so be sure that if this is the option you choose that you slowly up the dose until you know what the olfactory side effects will be.
All of these can be either taken as a supplement or used in cooking. Fennel is great on chicken and other savory dishes. Licorice oil can be added to drinks or confections and give them a strong herbal flavor. Fenugreek is used in a lot of Indian food and can be used when pickling. It can also be cooked and eaten alone as a sort of bitter herb. Regardless or how it is chosen to be ingested these herbs may be great holistic answers to breast augmentation.

Meditation Techniques For Time Pressed Executives

by Molyazzi

Meditation, quite rightly, has an image of relaxation, peace and quiet, and many may interpret this as meaning meditation can only be for those who have time to laze around half the day. For this reason, those people, such as business executives, who live a pressured life with little or no time to spare, may assume that meditation can never have a place in their lives. That is a shame, as meditation techniques can be quite flexible and quite easy to fit in to a busy day.

The benefits of meditation can be so great to somebody under pressure, that even a few minutes occasionally may bring a noticeable benefit. For a busy executive to have reached their position in life, they are likely to be determined and intelligent individuals. This can often mean that, should they perceive a benefit in an activity, then they will continue or extend that activity. It is therefore possible that an executive trying out even a brief period of meditation may soon adopt some meditation technique or other on a regular basis.

What type of meditation techniques may fit in with an executive lifestyle? Important features of meditation are being able to breathe well and consciously, relax and clear the mind, and then focus the mind. An executive with perpetual meetings and a full diary, with pressures to perform and maximise profits, may think such things cannot be fitted into their busy lives.

It is true to say that the most powerful and beneficial meditation sessions are prolonged. However, that does not mean short periods of meditation are a waste of time; far from it. An executive is probably geared up to packing as much into their day as possible and, although it may be difficult to clear a hyperactive mind, they may well learn to pack in short meditation sessions also. In so doing, they may well find that those sessions give them a boost that is far greater and more beneficial than caffeine.

So, what techniques can an executive use during their busy day? Here are a few ideas:

1. If using public transport to get to and from work, and you are able to sit down, it can be a good time to close your eyes, concentrate on correct breathing, and try to shut out the surrounding sounds. Commuting can be a very stressful experience every day of the week, so a snatched meditation session, even in far from ideal conditions, may minimize those negative effects, or even turn them on their head. In fact, it can be good practice to try to meditate in difficult conditions, as that makes ideal conditions even more beneficial later on.

The secret to these train or bus sessions is not to fall asleep, and to concentrate extra hard on maintaining the focus.

2. Do you go to a gym or health spa? Whether at lunch time or in the evening, this can be a good time to tag on a short meditation session. If you have finished your work out, you need some time to shower and relax your body a bit. Following that with a 10 minute or more period of meditation could work wonders. Most gyms or health spas will have a room you can use for a short spell of peace, so it is worth asking. A vacant massage room would serve the purpose.

3. Control your diary, and schedule in a mid morning and mid afternoon "tea or coffee" break. Only instead of tea and coffee, drink water, sit comfortably, focus on your breathing and then when totally relaxed, have a short session of meditation, focusing on something calming and not related to work. Even 10 minutes can provide a power inducing respite from the day's work, and the chances are you will not lose time, but rather gain time, as you will work more effectively.

Snatched meditation sessions spread through the day may not be the stuff of traditional meditation, but they are certainly better than none at all. Hopefully, the rejuvenated executive will perceive enough benefits to set aside time in the evenings and weekends to learn full meditation, and then be able to return to work at the top of is game every weekday morning.

Ten Wellbeing and Beauty Benefits of Sauna

Below is a rundown on the many health and beauty benefits that could be gained by a session in a sauna...

1) Toxin Cleansing
There are a lot more toxins within our environment and our food than any other time, and it seems our bodies are in danger of turning into toxic waste dumps! Saunas may help in this matter because of the fact that the average person sweats approximately half a litre of body fluid during an average sauna session, and sweating is one of the bods primary natural method of cleansing itself of toxins.

2) Better Blood Circulation
The heat within a sauna causes the blood vessels to expand and can therefore aid better blood circulation, however it should be noted that blood pressure effects are unpredictable, and can rise in some people and fall in others.

3) Glowing Skin
Another side effect of better blood circulation is a glowing complexion, because most of the extra blood flow produced by the sauna conditions goes to the surface of the body (your skin). Similarly, the act of cleansing which occurs when perspiring will result in your complexion looking soft and radiant. Also, these safe and healthy sauna skin benefits have none of the nasty harmful effects connected to the common and dangerous practice of sunbathing (which can lead to sun damage and premature aging).

4) Improved Sinus and Breathing
It is recognised that steam assists to relieve congestion, so naturally the steam within a traditional sauna is purported to alleviate sinus and breathing problems. Sauna could also provide relief to patients with asthma and chronic bronchitis. It should be added that whilst these benefits hold true for a lot of users, some traditional sauna users do experience difficulty breathing if for example the air is dry (the heat conditions in a sauna can vary from dry air to a more steamy environment), and such individuals could be better served by Far Infrared saunas, where the issue is reported to be non-existant.

5) Losing weight
A regular sauna session could bring about a rise in the heart pulse rate of 30% or higher. This then greatly improves metabolism (fat burning process). A half-hour sauna session burns approximately 600 calories.

6) Improved Fitness
The work you heart does within a sauna (increasing in heart pulse rate) could in fact improve your overall cardiovascular fitness. Basically, after a while, your heart becomes conditioned to the hot sauna conditions, effectively improving it's capability to handle stress. An illustration of this improved heart conditioning will be any time you exercised the heart rate is going to be lower than it was when doing identical exercises previously.

7) Arthritis Relief
The effect of the heat penetrating through the body, relaxing joints, tendons and ligaments and dilating the blood vessels offers temporary relief from the pains of arthritis.

8) Relaxes Tired Stiff Muscles
Again, when the heat inside a sauna penetrates your body, the muscles are relaxed.

9) Sleep Better
Taking a sauna in the evening facilitates going to sleep, in addition to a deeper sleep.

10) Anti-aging Therapy
Older people generally exercise less when compared with there younger counterparts, hence they sweat less often, and this reduces the already mentioned flushing of toxins usually achieved through sweating. Sauna gives older people a simple path to achieving a healthy sweat, and thereby an excellent anti-aging therapy. Similarly, sauna is a popular option for young people who are incapable of exercising, and consequently achieving a good sweat, due to physical disabilities.

Gingerol - A Cancer Fighting Antioxidant

by Tom Parker

Gingerol is a flavonol and phytonutrient (a group of chemical compounds that are found naturally in plants and have multiple health benefits but are not considered essential in humans) that can be found in fresh ginger. It has been linked with preventing cancer, strengthening the immune system and more. In this article I will be discussing gingerol in greater detail and providing you with a summary of its main functions, the best food sources, the recommended daily allowances (RDAs) and the potentially adverse effects of consuming too much or too little.

1) DISCOVERY:

The first references to gingerol date back to 4000 B.C. where it was mentioned as a cooking spice in the sacred Hindu text; "Mahabharata". It was classified as a flavonol many years later in 1938 by the Hungarian biochemist Albert Szent Gyorgyi when he discovered the flavonoids.

2) FUNCTION:

Gingerol has multiple health benefits in the human body. It acts as an anti-inflammatory (a substance that prevents inflammation within the body) and an antioxidant (a substance which protects the body's cells from damaging free radicals). In addition to this, gingerol boosts the body's immune system, protects against certain types of cancer (including breast cancer, colon cancer and ovarian cancer) and treats high blood pressure. Finally, it works to relieve migraines, nausea and the painful symptoms associated with arthritis.

3) RDA:

Gingerol is not considered essential to human health so no official recommendations have been set regarding its consumption. However, a number of sources recommend that gingerol should be avoided completely by children up to 2 years old. They also suggest that children aged between 2 and 17 years old should consume a maximum of 1.3 grams (g) per day and adults aged 18 years and older should consume no more than 4g per day.

4) FOOD SOURCES:

Gingerol is part of fresh ginger and this is the most potent source. It is often added to other foods as a cooking spice and can also be found in herbal infusions (teas) and herbal supplements.

5) OVERDOSE SYMPTOMS:

There are no reported overdose symptoms associated with consuming high levels of natural gingerol. However, excessive use of gingerol supplements can have a number of adverse effects which include confusion, dizziness, irregular heartbeats and sleepiness.

People who suffer from blood disorders, diabetes, gallbladder disorders or heart problems are more likely to experience overdose symptoms when taking gingerol supplements. People taking blood thinning medications and pregnant women are also considered to be more at risk of gingerol overdose.

6) DEFICIENCY SYMPTOMS:

At the time of writing, no gingerol deficiency symptoms have been identified. Author Resource:- Tom Parker owns Free Fitness Tips - a fantastic source of free, impartial fitness advice. You can learn more about gingerol and the other flavonols by visiting his website.

A Great Method To Overcome Your Depression Using Some Techniques

Kerstin Frey

Being lonely is a normal part of our everyday lives. We get sad when we fail in our exams, when we're rejected by the person we love, or when someone very close to us passes away. Depression, however, could be more fatal than just plain loneliness. It could render life-long consequences that could ruin your self-esteem, health, and well-being.

Here are some superb tips to conquer the melancholy mood and get the most bliss out of your daily activities.

1) Get Enough Light and Sunshine.

Lack of exposure to sunlight is responsible for the secretion of the hormone melatonin, which could trigger a dispirited mood and a lethargic condition.

Melatonin is only produced in the dark. It lowers the body temperature and makes you feel sluggish. If you are always cooped up in your room (with the curtains closed), it would be difficult to restrain yourself from staying in bed.

This is the reason why many people are suffering from depression much more often in winter than in the other seasons. It's because the nights are longer.

If you can't afford to get some sunshine, you can always lighten up your room with brighter lights. Have lunch outside the office. Take frequent walks instead of driving your car over short distances.

2) Get Busy. Get Inspired.

You'll be more likely to overcome any feeling of depression if you are too busy to notice it. Live a life full of inspired activities.

Do the things you love. If you're a little short on cash, you could engage in simple stuffs like taking a leisurely stroll in the park, playing sports, reading books, or engaging in any activity that you have passion for and would love to pursue.

Set a goal - a meaningful purpose in life. No matter how difficult or discouraging life can be, remain firm and have an unshakable belief that you are capable of doing anything you desire. With this kind of positive attitude, you will attain a cheerful disposition to beat the blues.

3) Take a Break.

I mean it.

Listen to soothing music. Soak in a nice warm bath. Ask one of your close friends to massage you. Take a break from your stressful workload and spend the day just goofing around. In other words, have fun.

4) Eat Right and Stay Fit.

Avoid foods with lots of sugar, caffeine, or alcohol. Sugar and caffeine may give you a brief moment of energy; but they would later bring about anxiety , tension, and internal problems. Alcohol is a depressant. Many people would drink alcohol to "forget their problems." They're just aggravating their conditions in the process.

Exercising regularly is a vital depression buster because it allows your body to produce more endorphins than usual. Endorphins are sometimes called "the happy chemicals" because of their stress-reducing and happiness-inducing properties.

5) Get a Social Life.

No man is an island. Your circle of friends are there to give you moral support. Spending time and engaging in worthwhile activities with them could give you a very satisfying feeling. Nothing feels better than having group support.

Never underestimate the power of touch. Doesn't it feel so good when someone pats you on the back and gives you words of encouragement during your most challenging times? Hug or embrace someone today. You'll never know when you have saved another life.

Get intimate. Establish close ties with your family and friends. The love and care expressed by others could tremendously boost your immune system and fend off illnesses. Best of all, you'll live a more secured and happy life.

B-12 Injections

Joseph Sterling

Injections of B-12 vitamins, often referred to as Cobalamin injections, serve many purposes. Many people take these injections for reasons ranging from anemia, stress, lack of energy, or as an aid in weight loss. Vitamin B-12 normally isn't thought of as a dieting supplement, but many believe that it actually boosts the metabolism and therefore provides an important contribution to weight loss efforts. It's also thought that B-12 has a great ability to improve one's mood and energy, which could also justify taking the shot for weight loss purposes since feeling good and wanting to be active certainly contributes to effective weight loss strategy.

B-12 is not only taken for a variety of different reasons but also in a variety of different forms. It is often taken as a pill, through intramuscular injection, or as a little tab that you place underneath the tongue until it dissolves. Perhaps the most popular method of B-12 consumption is through intramuscular injection because it is thought that taking a pill leaves the vitamin to travel through the entire digestive tract, losing some of its effectiveness along the way. With injection the vitamins are deposited directly into the blood stream and can begin to work within the body immediately. This important vitamin helps determine how much oxygen the cells of the body have, and since more oxygen means more energy it's understandable how getting a B-12 shot can really make one feel a lot better.

One of the most remarkable things about B-12 is that you get all the great benefits without any negative side effects attached; it's simply good for the overall health of the body no matter what the reasons are behind you taking it in the first place. In other words it doesn't really matter if it doesn't help you lose weight for instance because there are no side effects, you'll simply feel a little more energetic and better about yourself. In fact the fat burning qualities of B-12 has been put into question, but the important thing to remember is how the effects of B-12 can indirectly lead to weight loss even if they have no direct effect. For example B-12 is often used to fight depression since it makes people feel so good, and those who are dieting in particular need to feel good and not get discouraged or else they will ruin their diet and never end up losing any weight.

B-12 injections are particularly helpful for vegetarians and vegans who feel they may not be getting enough of this essential nutrient in their diets. It can also be a good for athletes and those engaged in heavy physical performance exercises because it naturally boosts energy levels. Ask you doctor or naturopath about vitamin B-12 injections.

Eat Six Meals A Day? Weight Loss Will Happen

Art Fielding

I bet you have heard before that if you eat six meals a day, weight loss will happen. I bet you even believe it. However, have you eaten six meals a day for any length of time? I'm guessing no. It's amazing. I have this conversation with so many people and it is always the same. They know that they should be eating six small meals a day, but they have never actually tried it. I am hoping that once you understand why you should eat six meals a day, you'll give it a try. Below are three benefits of eating six meals a day.

Benefit #1 - No more cravings

If your blood sugar level is low, you will crave diet killing junk food. The body is low on sugar and it sends out an S.O.S. demanding more sugar now. Your brain interprets that and sends out cravings for all of your favorite junk foods that will up your blood sugar. But, if you are eating six pre-planned meals every day, your blood sugar will stay at a much more constant level limiting or eliminating these cravings.

Benefit #2 - More energy

I'm sure that you have heard the term sugar crash, and that is exactly what happens when your blood sugar dips. You end up grouchy and tired. I know many people who have quit diets because of a lack of energy, or because of how it made them feel. Eating six small meals every day keeps your blood sugar at a consistent level, meaning that you won't be grouchy and tired.

Benefit #3 - It speeds up your metabolism

Eating six smaller meals a day will help you to increase your metabolism because your body never goes into starvation mode. When your body enters starvation mode, it starts to store fat just in case you don't eat again for a while. This was great for cavemen who might not eat for a day or two while they are hunting, but it is not so great for us since the next meal is always available. Eating 6 meals a day keeps your body from having to keep extra fat stores. Less fat stored means less fat and more weight loss.

Avoid the Dinosaur Syndrome For Your Brain


Suzanne Holman

Think of the anatomy of the dinosaur. They were huge creatures and had very small brains.

Ironic that what research is showing us is that as our bodies get more and more overweight, our brains get smaller.

Dr. Daniel Amen came up with the "Dinosaur Syndrome" name to paint a clear picture of the danger of being overweight.

With obesity comes more frequent diabetes, sleep apnea, and often high blood pressure. All of these health problems are associated with a higher incidence of Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.

Dr. Amen has written a number of books, the most recent one The Amen Solution: The Brain Healthy Way to Lose Weight and Keep It Off. And he recently opened an online site that offers ongoing support to those who choose to take the steps to get their weight down to a healthy level.

Recently, I heard Dr. Amen talk about a church he has helped to create a program for weight loss. Saddleback Church is one of the largest churches in the United States. Richard Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life, is the pastor there. They have a comprehensive website to support their congregation in getting fit. Here is a link to Dr. Amen talking about the Dinosaur Syndrome: http://www.saddleback.com/blogs/thedanielplan/avoid-the-dinosaur-syndrome/

When adults take the lead to eat consciously, children see this as an example of what is the appropriate way to eat and will follow suit. The current statistics on obesity in our youth is disturbing. Below are some statistics from the William J. Clinton Foundation, an organization that "focuses on worldwide issues that demand urgent action, solutions, and measurable results," that will open your eyes to this huge problem.

Did you know that almost 25 percent of our children do not participate in any free-time physical activity. Even worse, less than 25 percent of high school students take daily physical education classes. Healthcare costs are very high. Currently, Health Insurance companies are paying out monies for the treatmentnt of obese children that are almost three times higher than for treatment of normal children. Nearly 25 million children are overweight or obese. Today, there are five times more obese children between the ages of 6 and 11 than there was forty years ago.

Think of the heath problems that will develop for these young people if they do not change their lifestyle. Health care costs are high now but, what will they be in another 15 -20 years when these young people are going into their middle ages and older years.

It's a wonderful thing that attention is being brought to this issue at the high level of Michelle Obama. There are efforts being made all over the country.

Kids love dinosaurs but, will they love having the Dinosaur Syndrome which results in shorter, unhealthy lives?

Health Benefits Of A Power Nap

by Joseph Sterling
Being tired and sleepy is part and parcel of the busy modern life; it is often difficult to get through the day without being extremely sleepy and wanting to go take a nap. Taking a nap some time during the day is known as a cat nap or a power nap, and is highly enjoyable as well as being refreshing and rejuvenating. In fact, napping provides a boost to the body in many ways, including improved cell repair, heart function, and brain function.

You may still feel somewhat tired after your nap, but this is to be expected, the upside is that despite your tiredness you have given a boost to your brain functioning and have much improved memory capacity after taking a quick nap. Studies have also shown that taking quick naps can reduce stress and boost your overall productivity by increasing our ability to learn and ameliorate your mood. You are certainly doing yourself a big favor by napping during the day, since without a nap your brain functioning will consistently and gradually decline throughout the day.

As you probably know, sleep consists of many different stages. Taking a power nap is meant to only reach the first two stages, namely those of relaxation and light sleep. Your body spends about ten minutes to get through that first stage, and another ten or twenty minutes in the light sleep stage. It is therefore ideal to keep naps at around twenty minutes, though this figure certainly varies between individuals and is by no means set in stone. The problem though is that you do not want to oversleep, because if you slip into the further stages of sleep you will likely experience what is known as sleep inertia. This means you'll wake up with a heavy feeling which leaves you sluggish and requires considerably time to shake off.

People understandably have a difficult time napping during the day, but there are certain methods which can give you an effective routine to follow. One interesting method is to simply relax with a cup of coffee. Once you're done drinking the coffee you can close your eyes and let yourself slowly fall asleep. The caffeine takes about fifteen minutes to kick in, so you'll be naturally woken from your nap and will feel perfectly refreshed. If you still have trouble falling asleep there are many sleep-inducing methods out there, one of the more effective ones includes listening to brainwave music which helps slow your brainwaves and put you to sleep.

Asian diets vs American diets

by Jeff Cottagewood

In America and many Western countries food has become entertainment. We look forward to a night out at our cherished restaurant where we will munch and drink plenty more than we need to maintain our bodies. (Wait - is that what food is supposed to be for?) We munch to celebrate with friends, and at times we munch just to have something to do. For these reasons, Westerners are not the healthiest citizens in the world. When compared to nations with different diets and lifestyles, we do not stack up when it comes to fitness and dietary health.

The American diet generally consists of large amounts of bread and carbohydrates, high fat, high sugar and small amounts of healthy vegetables. Realistically, how many Americans do you know that prefer fresh vegetables to greasy french fries or steamed fish to a greasy cheeseburger? The above-mentioned foods may be delicious but they are not perfect as average meals.

In contrast to the American diet is the everyday Asian diet. Japanese and Chinese traditional foods are very different from the normal Western meal. Of course, availability of food, climate, and tradition are the reason that their diet is the way it is, but we may be able to pick up some good diet tips from the indicated citizens. Natural weight loss is about more than just "dieting." A lifestyle change may be required.

In most Asian diets there is a minimal amount of fat. The fat that is consumed is from cooking with vegetable oil. They averagely eat bunchs of vegetables and fruits on a daily basis. Protein is mostly consumed in the form of nuts, seeds and legumes. The mmunch that is munchen is low fat like steamed fish rather than the high fat red mmunch that Americans usually consume. Within the Asian diet, dairy products are kept to a minimum as well. They get more vitamin D from green vegetables than from milk.

This diet leads to considerably lower risks of heart disease, high cholesterol and diabetes which are colossal problems associated with Western diets. So, even if you do not need to lose weight, you may want to consider some of the indicated lifestyle changes for your health. It certainly would be excellent to see rates of the above-mentioned preventable illnesses decline.

Observing the munching habits of other cultures can be a way to teach ourselves some valuable lessons. Life is not all about food. Just ask the people that eat only when hungry and elect foods that actually provide their bodies with the nutrients that it needs to perform properly.

Learning About Fad Diets

Anna Lewis

High-Fat, Low-Carbohydrate Diets - Millions of Americans have joined the low-carb craze and started high-fat, low-carb diets such as the Atkins Diet, and the Zone Diet. They are made up of about 60% fat, 10% carbohydrate, and 30% protein. These diets say you can eat high amounts of fat and protein while getting very low amounts of carbohydrates in the form of vegetables. The main premise of the low-carb diet is that a diet low in carbohydrates leads to a reduction in the body's production of insulin. The end result is that fat and protein stores will be used for energy. So you stuff yourself full of unlimited amounts of meat, cheese, and butter, and only eat a small portion of carbohydrates.

People who start the diet usually lose a great amount of weight, but it's not permanent weight loss. Instead of burning fat, the lose water and precious muscle tissue. Furthermore, these diets are low in several nutrients and contain excess amounts of cholesterol and saturated fats, substances that increase the risk of heart disease. Plus, regardless of what they claim, the enormous amounts of protein put a strain on your kidneys.

Moderate Fat Diets - Next, there are the moderate fat diets. Moderate fat diets include diets like Weight Watchers, the USDA Food Guide Pyramid, and Jenny Craig. These diets are made up of about 25% fat, 60% carbohydrate, and 15% protein. They encourage the intake of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and essential fatty acids found in foods like olive oil and salmon. These diets are usually nutritionally balanced if the dieter eats a variety of foods from all categories. For example, Weight Watchers operates on a point system where foods get a number of points based on calorie, fiber, and fat content. Dieters get a specific amount of points they can use for the day. While it's not encouraged, they may choose to spend most of their points on carbohydrates instead of balancing it out. This could lead to deficiencies in nutrients such as calcium, iron, and zinc. However, if followed properly, these diets are probably the most successful for losing weight and keeping it off.

Low and Very Low-Fat Diets - Finally, you have your low-fat and very low-fat diets. Diets in this category include the Dr. Dean Ornish's Diet and the Pritkin Plan, among others. They are made up of about 13% fat, 70% carbohydrates, and 16% protein. These diets are mostly vegetarian diets and don't recommend eating a lot of meat. Like the low-carb diets, you can eat unlimited amounts of certain foods. Because you can't eat a lot of meat, these diets are deficient in zinc, vitamin B12, and essential fatty acids. Also, it is so restrictive that people find a hard time staying on it for life and end up gaining their weight back. Author Resource:- Read about the hCG Diet.

Health Benefits Of Krill Oil

Joseph Sterling

The oil extracted from krill is highly nutritious; it contains omega-3 fatty acids, astaxanthin, as well as vitamins A, D, and E. The kinds of omega-3 fatty acids found in krill oil are primarily DHA and EPA, two highly beneficial nutrients. DHA has been known to lower blood sugar, reduce cholesterol, and ease inflammation. EPA, on the other hand, plays a critical role in the central nervous system and contributes to proper brain functioning.

Astaxanthin is a fairly unfamiliar nutrient which is actually a red-colored pigment, the pigment which is responsible for the color of the Krill. Astaxanthin is considered an antioxidant and contributes to good health in several ways, it helps regulate hormones, protect the brain, and ease premenstrual symptoms. The vitamins in krill oil are beneficial for obvious reasons, though the oil doesn't provide very high quantities of these vitamins.

In addition to the specific benefits brought about by the nutrients covered thus far, krill oil has been shown to improve concentration and memory, as well as improve our overall mood. Furthermore, krill oil has a special ability to promote liver health, strengthen the immune system, and even cure many skin problems. Many of these desirable effects of taking krill oil are also attributed to fish oil, which explains the popularity which fish oil has also enjoyed. However for several reasons krill oil is much better than generic fish oil. For example, krill oil has larger amounts of antioxidants, higher EPA content, and a much longer shelf life.

Now that we've covered all the incredible benefits of krill oil, it's worthwhile to reflect on some of the possible side effects as well. Although fatty acids are a nutritional powerhouse, consuming enough of them will often lead to diarrhea and indigestion. Krill oil should most definitely not be taken by anyone with shellfish allergies, or by anyone taking blood thinning medicine. For everyone else just remember that nothing is good in excess but taken moderately krill oil will contribute to your overall good health in all kinds of ways.
