Consuming water in the morning as soon as you wake up is beneficial for many health problems from fatigue and pain to cancer and asthma.

This incredible water therapy comes from the ancient Ayurvedic medicine. It has been known for centuries that consuming water in the morning on an empty stomach helps purify the internal system of the body and cleanses the colon, thus increasing the body’s ability to absorb nutrients from food.

Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj re-discovered this ancient knowledge in the 1970’s. He concluded through his research that water therapy could help cure migraines, diabetes, autoimmune disorders, asthma, arthritis, and high blood pressure.

Dr. Batmanghelidj was born in Iran in 1931. He graduated from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School of London University. He actually studied under Sir Alexander Fleming, i.e., Nobel Prize winner.

Additionall, Dr. Batmanghelidj returned to his homeland where he was imprisoned as a political prisoner for about two and a half years in 1979. In the prison, he found the therapeutic effects of water. Thanks to water therapy, he successfully cured about 3,000 fellow inmates who suffered from stress-related peptic ulcer disease.

In 1983, Dr. Batmanghelidj’s findings were published in the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology. In 1983, the New York Times Science Watch, also published his findings.

In 1982, he escaped from Iran and went to the U.S. where he started examining the impact of chronic unintentional dehydration on the body.

He noted that the natural thirst signs of the huan body are usually mistaken for symptoms and signs of other ailments. You slowly become chronically dehydrated over your lifespan. But, in case you address this root problem, you may avoid various unnecessary medications and procedures.

Here Is the Water Therapy:

Consume around an eight ounce-glass of fluoride-free water as soon as you wake up in the morning. You can use distilled water (add minerals back into the water and a bit of baking soda for alkalinity) as well as reverse osmosis.

Don’t drink or eat anything for forty-five minutes after consuming the water.

Consume a cup of water half an hour before having a meal. You should also consume a cup of water about 2 hours after every meal.

The Japanese Medical Society notes that this water therapy would take a month to fight hypertension, ten days to cure some gastric problems, and ten days to provide constipation relief.

Health Benefits of Drinking at Least an 8 Ounce-Glass of Water in the Morning as Soon as You Wake up:

It helps boost your immune system. Since flu and cold season comes around the corner, you should elevate your water intake. Increasing your water intake can keep your lymphatic system healthy, thus improving your body’s ability to fight off infections. On the other hand, dehydration can result in increased levels of cortisol, sickness and stress.

It helps boost your metabolism. Consuming a large glass of water in the morning on an empty stomach has been found to boost metabolism by twenty-four percent for one and a half hours.

It reduces your appetite. A study found that those that consumed one glass of water before each meal lost 4.5 pounds within a period of 3 months. In fact, water helps fills up the stomach with a zero-calorie substance.

It helps detoxify your body. An Atlanta-based dermatologist, Kenneth Ellner, explains that your kidneys will cleanse and rid your body of toxins in case you drink enough water. Drinking water in the morning on an empty stomach helps your body flush out toxins. Detoxifying your body is much easier when you add some freshly squeezed lemon juice to your water because lemon helps elevate your urge to urinate.

Your brain tissue is made up of seventy-five percent water. In case you are slightly dehydrated, then your brain will operate on less fuel. That’s why you will feel drained, or experience mood fluctuations or fatigue.

When you wake up in the morning, you are already dehydrated. After about eight hours of sleep, you will probably wake up dehydrated in the morning. But, consuming water can help boost oxygen flow and make new blood and muscle cells, all of which increase your energy.It is important to understand that water isn’t a miracle cure. However, as the human body is mainly composed of water, keeping it active and hydrated helps improve your overall health and well-being.

The nutrition guideline for healthy digestion and adequate hydration is to consume half your weight in ounces of clean, filtered water. In case you consume caffeinated drinks, you should increase this amount of water. That’s not all, add ¼ tsp. of natural mineral salts like Celtic sea salt or Himalayan salt to 1l water in order to maintain mineral balance.

How To Choose An Air Conditioner

ac-650x340
Buying an air conditioner is hard. There are lots of specs that aren’t found on any other kind of product, the damn things are heavy, so if you buy the wrong one you’ll dread returning it even more, and if you mess up you will find yourself living in an unpleasant ice box, or a muggy misery. But don’t worry, it’s actually fairly easy to buy, install, and enjoy an air conditioner.
First, there are really two kinds of air conditioners that most people can buy and install themselves. Window units, and portable units. Others, like full HVAC systems or the AC’s installed directly into the wall itself, will require the work of a contractor—though some of the tips below can apply to them as well.
For most people, a window unit will be the ideal kind of air conditioner to buy. It’s cheap, easy to find, and does the job well enough. But it isn’t for everyone. It’s heavy, allows in more road noise and summer air, and has to be set into the window at an angle, so it can properly drain condensation on a hot day.
If the window is too narrow, or you live in an area with either exceptionally bad air quality (like on the highway or near a feedlot) or terrific amounts of outside noise then you can get a portable AC unit. They typically are the size of a mini-fridge and you roll them out when needed. Instead of taking up the entire window they only take up about 6-inches, so less bad air or loud noises come in. A large hose is attached to the AC and you install it in the window to exhaust all the hot air the air conditioner produces. However, the exhaust system isn’t perfect and thus portable ACs don’t cool quite as effectively as a window unit—they’re also more expensive and are typically have a built-in reservoir that collects condensation and must be emptied by you.
Now that you have a basic idea of the kind of air conditioners available let’s talk about how to choose the right one for you.
Step One: Measure the window and the room
The first thing you want to do is know the size of the window you’ll be installing the AC into. The more powerful an AC the larger it is, so you can’t hope to fit a huge AC in a tiny window.
Next measure the space that you plan to cool. I like to measure each room separately. You’ll want to note how long and wide the room is, as well as how tall the ceilings are.
At this point, if you’re planning to kit out your entire living space with ACs, you should have a little list of each room’s dimensions. Go ahead and note the kitchen, it will have a stove which means it gets hotter and will need a more powerful AC.
Also, note any rooms that get a lot of sun during the day. These rooms will also get a lot hotter and you’ll want to factor that in.
Step Two: Calculate
This is it, the worst part of choosing an AC. The power of an air conditioner is determined by the number of BTUs (British Thermal Units) it outputs. A small bedroom (think 10 feet by 10 feet with an 8-foot ceiling) will be fine with a sub-5,000 BTU AC. Double the size of the room and you should double the number of BTUs needed.
If you’re like me and don’t want to track down a chart that shows how many BTUs are needed for certain square footage, then a BTU calculator is your new best friend. I like this one, but they’re all doing the same thing: taking all those measurements and notes we recorded in step one and turning them into the number of BTUs you need.
Step Three: Figure Out How Many Air Conditioners You Need
Okay, you’ve done your measurements, plugged them into the calculator, and know how many BTUs you need. You might assume this is where you just head to Lowes and choose the cheapest AC with the required number of BTUs.
Don’t do that! Instead, you first need to consider how many air conditioners you actually need. This is where a lot of people mess up and find themselves with rooms that are either way too muggy or way too cold.
The problem is the air flow of the home. If you live in a railroad apartment and you put the giant AC in the kitchen, then your big bedroom at the other end of the space is probably going to be way too hot on most days. The air warms as it moves through a home and if the air flow in the home isn’t good, then the cool air will simply never reach parts of the house that need cooling. That leaves you with hot spots. The cool muggy spots come on when an AC is too powerful for the space where it’s installed. If the airflow in the kitchen is terrible, then you’ll have a hot house and a really gross kitchen.
If you have a lot of hallways or tall narrow rooms, then consider multiple air conditioners and adjust your calculations. So a 12,000 BTU unit for the bedroom and living room that are right next to each other, and a 7,000 BTU unit for the small kitchen with terrible ventilation.
Also, consider how often rooms need to be cooled. It’s okay to close a door off to a little used seating room. Or just close the kitchen when you’re not cooking and leave it completely un-airconditioned.
Step Four: Buy that AC
Now that you know how many air conditioners you need and the BTUs that are necessary for each one, you’re ready to go buy an AC. Everyone has a different budget and different requirements and that will factor into which one you get.
A low profile AC is great if you have limited windows in a room and want to allow in more sunlight—but it’s also more expensive. Some air conditioners are better insulated for sound so they’re much quieter. That can be great for a room where you watch a lot of TV or sleep but, as with the low-profile ACs, they’re costly too.
“Smart” air conditioners are still a rarity and charge a premium. However, most air conditioners past the 6,000 BTU range will be programmable, so you can set them to turn off for parts of the day you’re not home, or only run when the AC unit’s internal thermostat records a certain temperature. They’re basically smart ACs but you just can’t set them with your phone.
As for brands I’ve found Frigidaire to be reliable, easy to find, and with nice and easy to read controls. Haier, a Chinese company, and LG, a Korean company, have both made significant inroads in the US and produce really excellent and affordable ACs as well, however they are typically harder to find in brick-and-mortar stores.
Step Five: Install That AC
Here is another place people run into issues. Installing an AC is actually pretty easy, but it requires brute strength and a little patience. Try to make sure you have a second person on hand to help, and even more if you’re installing an AC in a multi-story building. You want the unit secure so it doesn’t fall out.
If you’re in an apartment, it’s a good idea to reach out to a super, landlord, or property management personnel for help. They can install outside supports for larger ACs and they’ve probably done enough to make sure the job gets done safely.
If you’re on the first floor, or in a residential home then unbox that bad boy and grunt and groan your way to the window with it. You want to set the AC in the window at an angle for drainage. That angle should always be away from the inside of the house. Never install an AC so that it is perfectly level. If the condensation has nowhere to go it will linger in the unit itself, breed mold, and then leave you with an AC that spews out cold air that smells like garbage.
Yuck.
Some people like to use bricks to create the tilt, but a small piece of wood cut to the same length as the window opening can be great too. And if the AC is really large and doesn’t have enough base within the window frame to rest on then you can buy a support and install it on the outside of the home. But this is usually only necessary for really large air conditioners. Slide the window close and make sure the AC is secured in the window.
Now grab a piece of insulation board. This is the trick I learned after growing up in a 100-year-old farmhouse in a town that would have months of 100-degree weather and it will separate your nice cool home from your friend’s sad and hot one.
Typically, people just pull open those accordion shutters on either side of the AC, bolt them to the sides of the window frame and call it a day. But these shutters are terrible. They have gaps that leak air and let in bugs and sound. If you have the money you can build a custom frame for your air conditioner, but the insulation board trick will cost significantly less and be done in ten minutes.
Insulation board can usually be found in 8- to 10-foot sheets at any home improvement store and it shouldn’t cost more than a few dollars. Measure the gaps between the window and the AC and cut out that amount of insulation board. You can then wedge it into the gap and call it a day, but I usually grab some fabric that compliments the room and wrap the board in that so I don’t have to stare at ugly silver insulation board all summer. Not only will it keep stuff out and help insulate the room, but it will muffle noise from outside too.
Finally, check for any other gaps around the AC and close off with a piece of smaller insulation foam. Beyond that, you can put up window treatments to cut down the amount of sun coming into rooms at the height of the day. The sun will make things hotter and force the AC to work harder, which can get expensive. So good shades or even some white curtains will help and save you money in the long run.

13 Habits That Make Your Brain Age Faster

brian
It’s no secret that the brain ages with the body. Cognitive decline and all sorts of degenerative disorders can develop as you grow older. The brain, like any other organ in the body, needs to be taken care of. If we fail to do so, it can become sick – just like any other body part.
As you age, neuron communication may grow weaker. Additionally, you might not get as much flow of blood to your brain. You might deal with more inflammation. All these issues contribute to causing a brain to decline.
But did you know that there are things you may be doing to speed up this aging process? Certain bad actions may be responsible for early cognitive decline, and it’s imperative that you know what those actions are so you can avoid them!
HERE ARE 13 HABITS THAT MAKE YOUR BRAIN AGE FASTER
1.    YOU DRINK IN EXCESS
If you’re a heavy drinker – or even a moderate one – you can damage the hippocampus in your brain. That part of the brain works by helping you learn and bolstering your knowledge. When you have a regular alcohol consumption schedule that puts you at a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or more, not as many nerve cells in this region are produced.
This doesn’t mean you can never enjoy a reasonable glass of wine with dinner, and it doesn’t mean you can never get tipsy on rare occasions ever again. What it does mean is that consuming too much alcohol can certainly cause your brain to suffer when it comes to memory and picking up new skills.
2.    YOU LIVE A SEDENTARY LIFE
If you spend most of your day sitting down and don’t make an effort to get any physical activity in, this sedentary lifestyle could put you at risk of developing dementia when you get older.
Studies have found that people who have good levels of cardiovascular fitness have an 88% lower chance of developing dementia than people who have moderate fitness levels. For those with high fitness who do develop dementia, they will do so more than a decade later, on average. That’s as good a reason to hit the gym as any!
3.    YOU DON’T MAINTAIN FRIENDSHIPS
It’s not uncommon for friends – and even family – to drift apart from each other as time goes on. But when you lose those close relationships, it can grow even more difficult to build new ones as you age.
Studies have shown that senior citizens who regularly attend social activities have a much lower rate of declining cognitively than those who do not socialize. Activities include:
— Visiting family
 Meeting friends
— Watching sporting events
 Attending clubs
 Indulging in social hobbies
This is likely due to the fact that the act of socializing can bring down stress levels, and stress can exacerbate cognitive and neurological problems of all kinds. As such, avoiding social contact is one of the habits that makes your brain age faster.
4.    YOU NEGLECT YOUR HEART
Your heart is responsible for keeping so many parts of your body alive and thriving. As such, it’s really not a surprise to state that its wellbeing is linked to the brain. According to Alzheimer’s Association’s Global Science Initiatives, James A. Hendrix, what is beneficial for the brain is the same as what is beneficial for the heart.
Studies have shown that if someone has diabetes, hypertension, or other potentially heart-harming conditions in their middle-aged years, they have a greater risk of developing dementia when they age.
5.    YOU SMOKE
Smoking is a bad habit for many reasons, but one of them is the fact that smoking can increase Alzheimer’s disease risk. In fact, it almost doubles those chances.
You may have read studies funded by the tobacco industry stating that cigarettes do not increase this risk. Unfortunately, these pieces of research are highly inconsistent with all scientific findings from studies unaffiliated with the industry; as such, you’ll have better luck believing the unbiased reports.
6.    YOU DON’T GET ENOUGH SLEEP
The body requires between seven and nine hours of sleep per night; if you aren’t getting that, you’re doing your health a huge disservice. There are countless downsides that occur when you deprive your body of the rest it needs – and one of them is increasing the risk of cognitive decline.
This is especially true if you’re older. Brain scans and research have revealed that those who don’t sleep enough wind up with ventricle expansion at a quicker rate, as well as a faster downhill slide into cognitive decline. Seven hours a night is your best bet when it comes to resting for positive results.
7.    YOU ARE HARMING YOUR HEARING
Are you looking after your hearing? Or do you blast your headphones just a little too loudly? Studies have found that senior citizens who experience hearing loss have a higher chance of experiencing cognitive decline – specifically dementia – as they age. Researchers theorize that the loss of hearing could lead to the following problems:
 Overly straining or focusing on sounds in an attempt to hear better
— Social isolation, which can increase risk of dementia
Essentially, more studies do need to be conducted in order to fully understand the link between these two factors, but it’s safe to say that damaging your hearing will not have a positive effect on your brain.
8.    YOU LIVE NEXT TO A HIGHWAY
Surprisingly, where you live can have an adverse effect on your health; if you live near a highway, for instance, you may want to consider moving. This is due to the high pollution levels around these locations, which cause you to be exposed to particulates that can damage your health.
Research has indicated that being exposed to bad, polluted air for long periods of time can alter the structure of your brain, leading to damage and impairment that constitutes cognitive decline. Your home is likely where you spend most of your time, and as such, residing near a source of pollution can be highly detrimental.
9.    YOU DON’T RELAX ENOUGH
Relaxation is crucial to health in the same way that too much stress is harmful to it. Those who deal with anxiety, chronic stress, and other areas that affect mood and positive thinking are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease by:
 33% in those with mild anxiety
 78% in those with moderate anxiety
 135% by those with severe anxiety
People who suffer from anxiety must be extra-vigilant and communicative with their medical practitioners about memory issues and other signs of cognitive decline. Slowing down, practicing self-care, and taking time to do what you enjoy can help relieve your stress and keep your brain healthy.
10. YOU DON’T WEAR A HELMET
If you go skiing, biking, skating, or another similar sport and don’t wear a helmet, you’re putting yourself at the risk of a serious head injury in the event of a fall. Traumatic brain injuries, known simply as TBIs, can cause serious harm to you and your brain, speeding up the aging process.
Hold your positive thinking, though. You can get better and heal from TBIs; however, you still have a 24% higher risk of developing dementia. Even mild injuries can have these results. Getting a brain injury early in life is even worse – a TBI in your twenties can lead to a 60% increase in dementia risk by the time you turn 50.
11. YOU DON’T EAT WELL
Eating well can prevent countless different kinds of diseases, including cognitive ones that come about with age. Those who eat healthy diets can decrease their Alzheimer’s disease risk by an impressive 53%, while those who eat relatively well can enjoy a 35% risk decrease. Some examples of the best kinds of food to keep your brain young are:
 Berries (especially blueberries)
 Vegetables (especially leafy greens)
— Fish
 Nuts
 Beans
 Healthy fats
 Poultry
 Wine (yes, but in moderation)
Remember to speak to a doctor before making any changes to your regular diet, especially if the change will be relatively drastic.
12. YOU DON’T EXERCISE YOUR BRAIN
Yes, brains need to work out, too. Without regular mental training, it’s easy for the brain to lose its sharp thinking skill. Those who regularly train their minds are 29% less likely to develop dementia than those who don’t.
Some research also suggests that those who regularly work out their brains after the onset of cognitive decline can potentially slow the process down, or even bring it to a halt. Still, more studies are needed before a conclusive finding can be drawn.
There’s nothing home with needing to just unwind and veg out, so to speak, after a long day. But your default free-time activity shouldn’t be something that involves little to no thinking skills of any kind. Here are some ideas:
— Playing chess
 Doing word puzzles (like crossword)
 Doing number puzzles (like Sudoku)
 Learning new skills
13. YOU STOP LEARNING
Not everyone enjoys studying, but learning in itself can be a wonderful thing. You can expand your horizons and, more importantly, keep your brain in good working order.
When you take the time to learn new skills and acquire more knowledge, your brain grows stronger and more resilient. It adapts to the process of learning and gets the exercise it needs to stay strong, flexible, and healthy.
Research also suggests that those who have reached higher education levels tend to experience lower risks when it comes to developing dementia and other cognitive issues. However, it could be a case of correlation instead of causation, as those with higher education levels can often afford a higher standard of living.
FINAL THOUGHTS ON SOME HABITS THAT MAKE YOUR BRAIN AGE FASTER
Cognitive decline is often considered part and parcel of growing older – but it doesn’t have to be. By steering clear of these negative habits and ensuring that you maintain positives ones, you will likely be able to negate a lot of the risk of developing disorders like Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
Keep in mind that your brain needs exercise and health to stay young and fit, just like the rest of your body. After all, it is responsible for all your bodily functions. If you want to live a happy, healthy life, we can think of no better place to start than with your brain.

10 Health Benefits Of Jackfruit

636923925883909015

Jackfruit is an exotic fruit that grows in the world’s tropical regions and is native to South India. It is in the Moraceae plant family that also includes breadfruit, mulberry, and fig. Its outer skin is spiky, and the color is yellow or green.

 

One unique thing about the fruit is its unusually big size. It is the world’s biggest tree fruit and can be up to 35 kilograms in weight. Jackfruits have a flavor that is subtly sweet and fruity and has been claimed to taste like a mixture of fruits, including mangoes, apples, bananas, and pineapples.
Its texture resembles that of shredded meat, which makes it appealing to vegetarians and vegans who use it as a meat substitute. Because Jackfruits can withstand tropical climates, it can be a significant source of carbs and calories for people in developing countries who face the risk of starvation. Despite being popular in tropical regions, it is still grown in other world regions, including the US where it is in season in the summer.
HERE ARE TEN JACKFRUIT HEALTH BENEFITS
1. BOOSTS LEVELS OF RED BLOOD CELLS & PREVENTS ANEMIA
Anemia is a disease that is defined by a low count of red blood cells or Hemoglobin in the blood below the lowest acceptable levels. It results in slow oxygen transportation in the body, which leads to constant exhaustion, blacking out, pale complexion, and bouts of lethargy.Jackfruits have iron mineral that can solve the issue of deficiency of red blood cells in the blood. Vitamin C found in the fruit further assists in the efficient absorption of iron in your body. The lack of vitamin C in the body can lead to the lack of absorption of all iron ingested from dietary sources.
Other minerals such as magnesium and copper available in the fruit boost the quality of blood.
2. BONE NOURISHMENT
Jackfruits have high amounts of calcium that strengthens and promotes the health of your bones. Some illnesses that are related to bones are Osteoporosis and Arthritis, which can be prevented and managed with regular eating of the fruit.
Jackfruit also has high potassium levels that further reduce the loss of calcium via the kidney. This boosts the density of bones, hence strengthening it.
3. RELIEF FROM ASTHMA SYMPTOMS
Due to an increase in weakened immunity from pollution, cases of asthma are increasing annually. But Jackfruit has been seen to benefit patients of asthma. Asthma reveals symptoms such as extreme difficulty during breathing, panic attacks, and wheezing.
Asthma is a chronic condition with no cure but can be managed with a hypoallergenic diet and medicines. However, studies are being conducted to see if jackfruits and their extracts can treat the condition and curb the symptoms. For now, boiling the root of the fruit and eating it can relieve you from asthma symptoms.
4. PREVENTS AGAINST FREE RADICALS & AGING
Prevention of aging is one of the top jackfruit health benefits. Aging is no longer caused by natural factors only. Unhealthy lifestyle, UV radiation, and pollution result in faster aging.
The primary cause of aging is free radicals produced in the body as a result of high oxidative stress that results from pollution. This can be combated by a diet rich in anti-oxidants such as Jackfruit. The fruit destroys free radicals to slow down the process of aging.
Additionally, consumption of Jackfruits aids in keeping the skin well hydrated and moisturized since it has high levels of water. Water minimizes the dryness and offers a supple look to your facial skin. This further minimizes fine lines and light wrinkles on the sin to make you glow and look younger.
5. EYE PROTECTION
Jackfruits have vitamin A as well as its equivalent in the form of Lutein Zeaxanthin and Beta Carotene. Beta Carotene is synthesized and converted to vitamin A, which is a crucial nutrient when it comes to eye health. It is an anti-oxidant that boosts your vision and safeguards your eyes from free radicals.
It is also popular for safeguarding the eyes from viral and bacterial infections by making the mucous membranes that form a layer on the cornea strong. Lutein Zeaxanthin has antioxidant properties, which serve your vision impressively and efficiently. It safeguards the eyes from harmful and intense light waves such as UV rays.
This component is also deemed significant in boosting your vision in low or dim light. It is highly effective in preventing the degeneration of the retina and minimize the risk of macular degeneration and cataract.
6. SAFEGUARDS AGAINST PILES AND COLON CANCER
Colon cancer prevention is another one of the top jackfruit health benefits. Colon cancer arises as a result of colon damage at the cellular level, and the altered cells divide rapidly even though there is no need for new cells. They end up ruining the healthy cells as they move to other body parts via the bloodstream.
Colon cancer comes out in its initial stages as polyps in the lining of the colons and takes the form of full-blown cancer as it progresses. But fruits such as Jackfruit that are rich in antioxidants assist in cleaning toxins from the colon, keeping it healthy. Although it fails to treat cancer, it assists in minimizing the risk of the condition developing.
Jackfruits also help in preventing and alleviating piles. Piles refer to Hemorrhoids in the anus that consist of swollen blood vessels. It is an excruciating condition, and critical situations result in bleeding and pain during the passing of stools.
Chronic constipation is a leading cause of Piles. The high levels of fiber in Jackfruit can cure constipation and alleviate the symptoms.
7. PROMOTION OF HEALTHY DIGESTION
Jackfruits contain 1.5 grams of fiber per serving of 100 grams, which is deemed excellent. Dietary fiber is a laxative that increases the bulk of your stool while softening it. This makes it easy for your gut to push it via the intestines, which boosts digestion and avoids constipation.
Jackfruits also have both insoluble and soluble fiber, whereby soluble is 25 percent of the overall fiber. Soluble fiber is digested in your gut and offers energy while insoluble goes through the gastrointestinal tract.
The insoluble fiber increases the bulk of the stool to create a quick exit. It maintains cleanliness of the tract while minimizing build up in the intestines.
8. GENERALLY HEALTHY HEART
Potassium is one of the most significant components that control the pressure of the blood. The body requires about 4700 milligrams of Potassium per day. An optimum level of potassium is critical in controlling the proper amount of sodium in the body.
Deficiency of potassium can make your levels of sodium get out of control, which results in significant damage to the arteries and heart. Additionally, potassium can coordinate and maintain muscle function, which includes the heart muscles. Jackfruits have great levels of potassium that is around 10 percent of the daily intake.
The perfect levels of potassium are needed to maintain a fluid level and balance electrolytes. All these various potassium functions assist in maintaining the ideal blood pressure and minimizing the risk of heart attack and stroke.
9. IMPROVES ENERGY LEVELS
If you want a quick boost of energy, there are not so many fruits that can match the energy provided by Jackfruits. The fruit has a healthy amount of sucrose and fructose, which are simple sugars that are easily digested by the body.
In addition to easy digestion, the sugar in Jackfruits originates from a group called SAG or Slowly Available Glucose. It minimizes the glucose level in the body in a manner that is limited and hence minimizes the Jackfruit’s glycemic index.
Simply put, diabetic individuals suffering from high levels of sugar and sugar spikes can have this fruit without having to worry about the levels of glucose. But if Jackfruits are a regular part of the diet, be sure to add exercise to your routine to improve digestion.
10. IMPROVES THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Anti-oxidants are needed by the body to combat free radicals. The body needs antioxidants to scavenge free radicals. Free radicals are generated when oxygen reacts with particular molecules to kick start a chain reaction that ruins cell membranes and DNA.

14 Vegetables Contain More Iron Than Meat

636765055414169796

Popeye knew it well, iron is an indispensable ally for our body. In general, a balanced diet should cover our needs, but how to provide us with iron? In foods such as red meat, crustaceans but also chocolate, seaweed, and spices we can find the answer.

Although it is present in many foods, sometimes we can suffer from iron deficiency and even reach anemia. In fact, iron is not always well assimilated into our body, meaning that our digestive system often finds it difficult to extract this mineral from food, transfer it to our body and store it.
A daily intake of 9 mg of iron for men and 18 mg of iron is recommended for women and adolescents. Because it is well known that when menstruation appears, the women’s body must compensate for this loss of iron. In this way, when menopause arrives, women will need a lower iron dose of approximately 9 mg per day.
Pregnant women should also get iron. About 20 mg per day is the recommended dose for a good development of the fetus and good iron index during breastfeeding.
What happens when we lack iron?
The first symptoms are fatigue, pallor, exhaustion, less resistance to infections … These are some of the indicators of an iron deficiency or anemia.
This can also cause the reduction of physical abilities and intellectual performance as well as disorders during pregnancy. On the contrary, too much iron in the body is also harmful, something called hemochromatosis.
What are the reasons for iron deficiency?
– Lack of iron in the diet or a poorly balanced vegetarian diet.
– A low bioavailability of iron due to excess tea or calcium supplement.
– A reduced absorption of iron caused by gluten intolerance, an inflammatory bowel disease or other intestinal disorders.
– Abundant blood loss such as during menstruation or childbirth.
– An increase in the need for iron due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, and growth.
When it comes to food, we should not deprive ourselves of iron-rich foods such as red meat and crustaceans, but we must also take into account vegetables that have high doses of iron. For those who are important to consume vegetables, here is a list of the main ones in terms of iron content, so that they always integrate your usual diet.
1) Mung bean or mung bean: In general, legumes contain different elements beneficial to health such as wood fibers, carbohydrates, and antioxidants.
But one of the most important advantages of mung bean or mung bean is that it contains high iron levels; approximately 1.8 milligrams per 100 g.
At the same time, add zinc, copper, and potassium. Because they are low-cost pulses, they are part of the list of foods with the best position in their nutrient-price ratio.
Certain studies associated the regular consumption of legumes with different beneficial effects for health such as a better control of diabetes, a decrease in the risks of cardiovascular diseases, a better management of body weight and a decrease in the risk of colorectal cancer.
These benefits would be partly attributable to different compounds present in legumes such as food fibers. The American dietary recommendations suggest, on the other hand, to consume vegetables several times a week, the ideal dose being about 680 g per week.
2) Spinach: Spinach is also an excellent source of iron. In addition, they are low in calories because it contains only 22 calories per 100 g and as an additional benefit, we must mention that it contains important antioxidants and are also rich in vitamin A.
Spinach is that kind of vegetable that enhances its iron content once it is cooked. That is, they are more beneficial sewn than raw.
3) Broccoli: Broccoli contains 1 mg of iron per 100 g and this represents 6% of the recommended daily contribution. It is incredibly nutritious!
In addition, broccoli contains 168% of vitamin C recommended for an adult and as we already know, vitamin C helps absorb iron.
Broccoli is also rich in folates and provides 6 g of fiber and high doses of vitamin K.
These vegetables belong to the cruciferous family, where they also find cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale, and lettuce.
The crucifers contain indole, sulforaphane, and glucosinolates; plant compounds that prevent cancer.
4) Tofu: Tofu is a soy-based food that is very popular among vegetarians and in certain Asian countries.
126 g of tofu provides 3.6 mg of iron, which represents 19% of the recommended daily intake.
It is also a good source of thiamine and other minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and selenium. The proteins that tofu contributes are not insignificant either since a single portion contains 20 g.
Tofu isoflavones are linked to improving insulin sensitivity, reducing the risk of heart disease and alleviating menopausal symptoms.
5) Dark Chocolate: The dark chocolate, besides delicious, is very nutritious.
A portion of 30 g has 3.2 mg of iron, which represents 18% of the recommended daily contribution.
Only this small portion adds 25% copper and 16% magnesium. Dark chocolate contains prebiotic fiber, a food for friendly bacteria found in the intestines.
A study revealed that cocoa powder and dark chocolate have a greater antioxidant power than the juice of acai berries and blueberries.
Other research has shown that dark chocolate has beneficial effects on cholesterol and can reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
However, all chocolates are not the same. It is believed that flavonoids are responsible for the benefits of chocolate and the amounts contained in dark chocolate are greater than those of milk chocolate.
That is, it is preferable to eat chocolate with at least 70% cocoa, to make the most of its benefits.
6) Lentils: Lentils are a rich iron food with a contribution of 3.3 mg per 100 grams. They are also rich in fibers, which facilitates digestion and intestinal transit, in addition to having high-quality vegetable proteins.
They are ideal for athletes and also for pregnant women because of their high concentrations of folic acid.
But lentils not only contain iron, but also large amounts of magnesium and vitamin B.
Lentils are an interesting option for vegetarians or vegans for their nutritional contribution. They can be consumed hot or cold as another ingredient in salads.
7) Kale: This vegetable also known as kale or cabbage brings vitamins that exceed the recommended daily amount. A 512% vitamin A and 200% vitamin C, but the star of the kale is the amount of iron it contains: 1.5mg per 100 grams.
The amount of iron is greater than that of meat if we compare it in terms of calories. Iron transports oxygen in the body promotes growth and renews cells.
It also adds vitamin K, whose intervention in the coagulation of the blood contributes to the formation of strong and resistant bones.
Its high fiber content makes it an excellent ally against constipation. We find in this plant soluble fibers in the form of the gel in the heart of the kale that is dispersed in the water and insoluble fibers in the leaves that help the nutrients move from the stomach to the intestines.
Fibers help lower cholesterol and slow down the passage of glucose into the blood. The consumption of this alkaline food favors the cardiovascular system and helps a good digestion.
8) Pumpkin seeds: Those pumpkin seeds that we always discard when we cook this vegetable, contain 3.3 mg of iron per 100 grams. Take advantage of them!
They also contain zinc, phosphorus, and magnesium and their high nutritional value is due to vitamins A, E, F and those of group B. Their protein richness is very important: 35 grams of protein per 100 grams. They have all the essential amino acids.
A good way to take advantage of their properties is to combine them in salads with sunflower seeds and other ingredients.
They are rich in fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids. The pumpkin oil extracted from the seeds contains six times more linoleic acid than olive oil.
9) Beetroot: Beet is grown since the Middle Ages and is a vegetable known for its high sugar, although it also contains large amounts of trace elements.
Its content in iron is 1.8mg per 100 grams that help regenerate the blood. This vegetable is also rich in calcium and magnesium and owes its color to betanin. This substance allows fighting certain types of cancer since it is excellent for the good functioning of the liver.
The beet is also rich in folic acid (vitamin B9) and allows a good assimilation of carbohydrates.
Did you know that beet greens are also edible? And they are rich in iron!
10) Nuts: Nuts, almonds, pistachios, hazelnuts, dates, figs … contain on average 2.4g to 3mg of iron and with several of them it is easy to reach the recommended 15mg per day for adults and represents an energy contribution very important.
The small amount of water that these fruits have allows them to be preserved for a long time.
But beware! A load of calories is significant and is a healthy option but to respect in terms of quantity since caloric intake is important.
The nuts can be eaten raw or as an ingredient in salads and smoothies.
We have known the main plant foods rich in iron, but it is also important to know that others can inhibit the assimilation of this important mineral and it is something to take into account.
Certain compounds such as calcium that contain dairy products or tea and coffee tannins prevent the proper absorption of iron.
To not waste our efforts and enhance the iron ingested, consume other foods in vitamin C such as kiwi, tangerine, orange or add lemon to your salads or your meals.

Being under pressure can be very stressful. When stress builds up, people handle it in different ways. Like we always say, your zodiac sign most often defines your personality. Depending on what your zodiac sign is, you might respond to stress in a healthy or an unhealthy way. Usually, it takes literally a long time to figure out how to handle stress. Some zodiac signs tend to lash out when they are stressed. The build-up of emotion and other overwhelming factors are just too much that they can’t handle it anymore, and hence, they burst out. While some signs shut down completely and distance themselves from everybody around them.
Stress affects your emotional and mental health majorly. Sometimes, we do not take care of ourselves when we are drowned in work and responsibilities because it feels selfish to take time out, but this is usually when we need self-care the most. Remember whether you are a sign who lashes out or shuts down, you NEED to combat stress better. Here is how each zodiac sign reacts when it is going through stress.
Aries
Stress is just one of many emotions Aries feels very deeply. The fire sign is known for their quick and fiery temper, so it is super obvious that they will lash out without thinking twice when they are stressed. They will be screaming and cursing at the smallest things until they find a solution to the stressing problem. They will use others as a punching bag as emotions explode out of them. They will calm down eventually, but their first reaction will be quite a blow.
Taurus 
You don’t want to be around the bull when it is angry or stressed. They might not let their emotions get the better of them often, but when they do, you’re have to watch out. When under stress Taureans lash out and strain themselves beyond the limit when they have a point to make. It might be a little scary to see the usually calm Taurean raise their voice, but their temper is justified. Most importantly, Taureans lash out only when they have to confront someone or make their point clear, otherwise, they handle stress in a less dramatic way.
Gemini
Gemini run as far away as possible from stress, but eventually, it gets to them. Usually, they’re pretty brilliant as they find solutions to most of their problems. Maybe it’s because they prefer to go with the flow, but Gemini doesn’t let things like stress bring them down. That being said, they can get pretty overwhelmed when stress is just one of many things bringing at them down. They will go on whining about being exhausted. They become extremely restless until they don’t seek help.
Cancer 
Cancer sign people become super moody and passive-aggressive when under stress. But don’t let them fool you to think that they’re keeping it all in. They’re basically piling it all up until they erupt like a crazy volcano. And when this happens, they’ll become really distant and quiet. They overthink about the things that are stressing them out instead of handling them one at a time.
Leo
Leo is one of the super expressive zodiac signs and they don’t keep any emotions hidden, least of all stress. They might not always take it out on others, but they will definitely let you know how they’re feeling. Leo is the LION of the zodiac signs and hence, they demand to be heard. So, when they lash out, it might seem like they’re trying to get some attention but that’s not entirely true as there are also open to solutions.
Virgo
Virgo always tries to be level headed with everything in life. They usually don’t like the chaos and disorder, be it outside or inside their head. Being a control freak, stress is just another thing they need to try to control, no matter what. When stressed, Virgo shuts down and won’t let anyone in. They might even become very self-destructive. They would even punish themselves for not being able to control their stress levels.
