Signs You Aren’t Getting Enough Vitamin E 2020

Hey there, health nuts. How often do you think about Vitamin E? Be honest, probably not a lot. I didn’t either. That was until I realized how important it was. Let’s just say Vitamin E helps keep your immune system intact, as well as maintain proper brain function. It’s antioxidant qualities exist in a wide range of foods. Let’s discuss 6 Signs You Aren’t Getting Enough Vitamin E. Do you feel muscle weakness? How about difficulties walking? Will Vitamin E deficiency cause my vision to deteriorate? We’re talking all that AND more… Let’s begin. Vision Deterioration If you’re not

getting enough Vitamin E, your vision will suffer. The vitamin plays an important role in the wellbeing of your eyes. The antioxidants found in vitamin E help fight against free radicals. If your free radicals remain unchallenged, the area of the body in which they flourish will be damaged. In this case, your eye tissue will begin to break down. Eventually, your deficiency can weaken the light receptors in your eye, leading to impaired vision. Lack of Vitamin E in your diet can also affect your eyes in other ways. Imagine going about your day when all of the sudden, your eye begins moving uncontrollably. This is known as nystagmus-- Say it with me ‘nystagmus’. I know it sounds funny. But trust me, it is no laughing matter! Don’t you just love hearing that original line? Cheesy jokes aside, nystagmus can be a byproduct of a Vitamin E deficiency. But it only gets scarier. You see, this is one of many issues this deficiency brings on. Ready for another odd word? Ever heard of ataxia?

Signs You Aren’t Getting Enough Vitamin E 2020

Ataxia is a condition when a person is unable to control their muscle movements. It is often defined by speech changes, difficulty swallowing and changes to the eyes. Research shows that lack of Vitamin E contributes to ataxia. In fact, there is a specific condition known as ‘AVED’, ataxia with Vitamin E deficiency. Symptoms are usually displayed between the ages of 5 to 15. If you notice that your eyes have been behaving strangely, do not hesitate to speak with a doctor. Your lack of Vitamin E could be responsible. By the way, if you’re looking to increase your Vitamin E intake, you're going to want to load up on foods such as green vegetables, almonds, fruits and vegetable oils. Sunflower

Signs You Aren’t Getting Enough Vitamin E 2020
seeds are terrific as well. The next time you're at a baseball game, try them! It will make you feel like a child all over again. Then again if your eyes aren’t working properly, you probably won’t see that flyball coming… Numbness Yes, this deficiency also creates numbness. No not emotional numbness. If it could do that, we’d all be cutting Vitamin E, am I right? I’m talking about a physical numbness caused by damaged nerve fibers that prevent your nerves from sending signals to the brain. This is known medically as peripheral neuropathy. In 1998, researchers examined a 24 year old man who had been suffering from both ataxia and peripheral neuropathy since early childhood. As a result, his

speech was slurred and his muscles weakened. More on that a little later. It turns out that his Vitamin E levels were dangerously low, which contributed to his condition. After providing him the right supplementation over the course of 2 years, experts saw no progression of his peripheral neuropathy. In fact, many of his symptoms had improved. When it comes to supplements, you’re going to want to consult with a doctor beforehand. But if you stick to foods that are rich in Vitamin E, there is a great chance they will fight off this condition.

Crohn's Disease We’re kind of cheating with this one. Crohn’s is less of a symptom and more of a

Signs You Aren’t Getting Enough Vitamin E 2020
cause. Either way, it’s an interesting point to mention. Numerous studies have suggested a link between Vitamin E and Crohn's. For those who don’t know, Crohn’s is an inflammatory bowel disease where the gastrointestinal tract is affected. Symptoms include diarrhea, fever, abdominal pain and severe weight loss. Vitamin E deficiency is often associated with diseases in which fat is not fully digested. In the case of Crohn’s, one issue leads to another. Because of symptoms such as ab pain and diarrhea, Crohn’s patients will be less inclined to eat. Because they are not eating, they are missing out on the proper nutrients. Each issue feeds into the next. No pun intended. This lack of nutrients includes that of Vitamin E, as you may not be consuming foods that contain abundant amounts. If you continue skipping out on meals, your loss of appetite will lead to dehydration and malnutrition. The best foods to eat include low-fiber fruits, refined grains, oatmeal and cooked vegetables. Muscle

 Signs You Aren’t Getting Enough Vitamin E 2020

Weakness Going without Vitamin E can cause your muscles to feel tired and insignificant. When your muscles are used, it’s cells experience something called a membrane tear. Without the help of Vitamin E’s antioxidants, these cells are unable to fully recover. When you work out, your muscles go through a distinct process. This is the ‘tear and repair’ routine. Once the cells are torn, they need to fix themselves. If they can’t begin the repair portion of the process, your muscles will not be able to build. Not getting the adequate amount of Vitamin E ensures that the muscle cells will not repair. This spells out bad news for your muscles, especially as you get older. Studies show that elderly people who do not consume enough Vitamin E are more likely to develop frailty syndrome. Over time, their muscles weaken throughout their body. Negative muscle affects caused by Vitamin E are not only exhibited by humans. Research has also shown that animals who go without the essential nutrient are also vulnerable to muscle weakness. This can be fatal in their case. An experiment in 2015 was

Signs You Aren’t Getting Enough Vitamin E 2020
conducted on rats to see how their muscles would react when given Vitamin E supplements. It turns out that the rodents who ate supplements were able to run downhill easier than those who were deficient. Do you find this list interesting so far? Well strap yourselves in, because there’s plenty more to come. Before we continue, are you concerned about other deficiencies you may be suffering from? Check out our latest videos discussing 9 Signs That You Aren’t Getting Enough Zinc. Or how about 10 Signs You Have an Iron Deficiency. But enough of that, let’s keep talking about Vitamin E, or lack thereof. Difficulty Walking Simply put, if you go without Vitamin E, you’re going to have

 Signs You Aren’t Getting Enough Vitamin E 2020

difficulty maneuvering from place to place. Forget not being able to build proper muscle. Imagine not being able to use your legs. Remember a moment ago when I mentioned the study regarding elderly folks who were Vitamin E deficient? Well aside from weak muscles, many of them over time lost their ability to walk. With little Vitamin E comes a loss in coordination. Vitamin E is essential for your body’s Purkinje neurons to function. Located in the brain’s cerebellum, the Purkinje cell helps to control your body’s motor movement. When you are lacking in Vitamin E, their neurons break down, limiting their ability to send signals. In a 2014 examination of mice, those that were deficient in

Vitamin E exhibited cellular atrophy as well as cerebellar oxidative stress. This meant that their Purkinje neurons weren’t as productive as they were supposed to be. When they were fed supplements, these mice experienced an increase in cellular function in their cerebellum. From here, their brain was getting back to functioning normally. Before moving on, we’d like to take a moment to thank Pur Gum for sponsoring this video. Pur Gum is the leader of sugar & aspartame-free gums and mints. With a great taste that doesn’t hold back in flavour, Pur Gum is sold in 25 different countries around the globe. Pur Gum... Live Pur. Loss of Cognitive Function Not only will your

motor skills and muscles weaken without Vitamin E, your overall brain function will worsen. Elderly people with Vitamin deficiencies generally see a decrease in cognitive function quicker than those who consume adequate amounts. When free radicals are left without antioxidants to fight them, your brain will suffer the consequences as much as any other area of your body. Vitamin E supplements are known to assist people with mild cognitive impairment. There have also been numerous studies that have focused on the effects of Vitamin E on patients with Alzheimers. While there’s so far no evidence that it increases their cognitive function, some experts feel that it may slow down cognitive decline. However, further research is needed to make any sort of conclusion. Do any of these symptoms apply to you? Have you felt Vitamin E deficiency? Let us know in the comments below. We would love to hear from you!

Powerful Health Benefits Of Parsley 2020

Hey Viewers, we’re glad you’re back! Today’s video is all about the powers of a very unassuming herb. One that’s often discarded as nothing more than a mere breath freshener at the end of a meal. Well we’re here today to talk to you about the powerful health benefits of parsley! Can it help fight against types of cancer? Does it lower blood sugar, and cleanse your kidneys? What about your heart health, can it help with that too? We’re gonna answer all these questions and more in today’s video, so keep watching until the end to get all the info! #1 A Rich Source of antioxidants First things, first

we have to talk about antioxidants. If you’re a regular here at Bestie then you know antioxidants help fight off free radicals that cause disease and distress in the body. Parsley contains several flavonoids like luteolin, Apigenin, lycopene, beta carotene and alpha carotene. Because antioxidants play a role in protecting you against chronic disease and cardiovascular problems and parsley is packed with them, it can protect you against these diseases. Who knew so much power was packed into a little plant! #2 Protects Against Cancer The C-word is scary and we all want to do everything we can to prevent it. According to a study parsley has protective agents that help fight breast cancer,

specifically apigenin. This flavonid can reduce inflammation and calm stressed cells which can turn cancerous as we age. Apigenin is sort of a wonder drug. It’s a natural substance that studies say can stop the progression of cancer and tumor growth. Another study also says that this flavone isn’t just helpful at preventing breast cancer but also prostate, colorectal and colon cancer. We’re not done with this amazing flavone just yet, as it brings us to our next point.

Apigenin can improve neuron formation, enhance memory capacity and our ability to learn new things. There's also research into the effectiveness against neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Schizophrenia and depression. #4 Makes Your Bones Stronger It’s hard to get all your recommended daily vitamins, but it is important. Eating just ten sprigs of parsley can help you get all the vitamin K you need in a day which can help protect you against things like Osteoporosis and bone fractures. Vitamin K also helps your body make more protein used specifically for your bones and also assists blood clotting. Not to mention Parsley contains high

levels of vitamin C, and of course calcium, something we all know is great for bone health. There’s B vitamins in parsley, too that help to reduce levels of homocysteine which can weaken your bones. It can be hard to know all the vitamins you’re supposed to take in a day. That’s why we made this video “The Ultimate Guide To Every Vitamin Your Body is Starving For”. Make sure you check it out, your body will thank you later. Now back to the 15 health benefits of parsley. #5 Improves Heart Health Your heart loves parsley, even if you don’t. Earlier we talked about how parsley is loaded with antioxidants that can reduce oxidative stress. Well, this helps in the heart department, too. Raw

Powerful Health Benefits Of Parsley 2020
parsley also has high levels of vitamin B and folate. Both of these can prevent the artery walls of the heart from thickening. Folate is heat sensitive, so that’s why it’s important to eat the parsley raw to get these benefits. Parsley also contains potassium which can help to lower blood pressure. Lower blood pressure can reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. #6 Keeps your Eyes Healthy Normally you can find things like beta carotene in brightly coloured orange vegetables like sweet potato, or carrots but parsley has it too! It’s also loaded with vitamin A and other carotenoid antioxidants which boosts eye health. Vitamin A can prevent dryness, night blindness and cataracts. These antioxidants

also help protect the retina, and prevents macular degeneration. Not only that, it can help your eyes on the outside, too by reducing puffiness and dark circles, but we’ll get into that more a little later. #7 Protects your Kidneys Your kidneys are vital organs that have many functions. You want to take care of your kidneys and one way to do that is to up your intake of parsley! Research shows that all of those antioxidants found in this wonder herb can help cleanse the kidneys naturally. Parsley is a common ingredient in diuretics for those suffering from painful kidney ailments like urinary tract infections, gallstones, bladder infections and kidney stones...ouch! The roots of parsley in particular are said to be especially helpful in reducing kidney stones. Homeopathic practitioners often use this herb to soothe menstrual cramps, bloating and indigestion as parsley contains chemicals that cause the muscles to contract. #8 Protects You Against Diabetes There’s something in Parsley called

Myricetin which according to lab tests and animal studies can help lower blood sugar and lessen insulin resistance. A study on rats with type 1 diabetes we’re given parsley and it was found that those who ate the herb had more reduction in blood sugar levels and pancreatic function than those who did not. The study also showed that parsley helped reduce inflammation and removed excess fat from the blood. #9 Reduces Arthritis Symptoms When it comes to rheumatoid arthritis it seems parsley is pretty effective. Since parsley is so anti inflammatory that can help with those suffering

Powerful Health Benefits Of Parsley 2020
from arthritis. The vitamin C, beta carotene vitamin A and E are properties in the herb that help control arthritis and reduce arthritic pain. #10 Boosts Immunity Especially in today’s world we all want to give our immune system as much of a boost as possible. Turns out it’s pretty easy with the help of parsley. The vitamins, minerals and antioxidants like vitamin C, A, K, folate, and niacin all do their part to give your immune system a boost. The vitamin A helps out your white blood cells specifically. These are a major part of your body’s defence system. #11 Might Help with Weight Loss We don’t mean a strict diet of parsley or anything, but according to research this herb affects the metabolism, and it can give it a boost. If your metabolism is functioning at its best then it’s easier to lose or keep a healthy weight. Sometimes the body retains fluids and water weight and parsley can

 Powerful Health Benefits Of Parsley 2020

help get rid of that, too as it cleanses the liver and kidneys. #12 Takes Care Of Your Skin Remember when we talked about how parsley can help with dark circles and puffiness under your eyes? Well, it can do a lot more than that. Turns out this herb is good for your skin, too! Because of all the vitamin C in parsley it can help boost the production of collagen which keeps your skin looking youthful. It can also reduce the look of scars or blemishes on the skin. Not to mention it can balance oil production. If your skin’s oil production is out of whack it can cause an acne break out, dry patches or redness. #13 Antibacterial Properties Studies show that when used as an extract, parsley has a significant effect on yeast, mold and infection causing bacteria like the common S. Aureus. Adding it to your food can also yield benefits, as it can stop unwanted bacteria from growing there, too.

Bacteria like listeria and Salmonella which can cause food poisoning if ingested. #14 Relieves Bloating and Gas That’s right, we said GAS! There’s nothing more embarrassing than passing gas in front of friends. It’s nothing to be ashamed of, everybody does it. But that doesn’t mean you don’t want relief, and fast! Luckily parsley can help with this. The root of parsley is said to boost bile production and gastric juices which can kick start your digestive system and helps alleviate gas, constipation indigestion, bloating and even nausea. We mentioned earlier how this herb is popular in homeopathic medicine to help with digestion and, well... flatulence is part of that equation. #15

 Freshens Breath And last but not least, the one thing parsley is actually known for, freshening your breath. If you had a garlicky lunch or perhaps you had a lot of onion in your meal you can count on parsley to the rescue! Just chewing on a sprig of parsley can tie you over until you can brush your teeth. You can add parsley to your diet easily. That’s part of what makes it so great. It’s inexpensive, can be found at most grocery stores or you can try your hand at growing it at home. It’s a fantastic addition to homemade salads, dressings, seafood, grilling meats and more! To keep parsley fresh a little longer, wrap it in a damp paper towel in a container in the fridge. It’s an easy way to keep it watered, after all it is a plant! Do you love or hate parsley? What’s your favourite food to add parsley to?

Signs Your Body Is Lacking Vitamin C 2020

Hey there viewers! Have you ever heard that drinking lemon tea can fight against your cold? Vitamin C is an important nutrient needed by our body for optimal functioning. It fights off infections and helps in other biofunctions. In today’s video we will be discussing this essential nutrient. What role does it play in boosting immunity? What are the other benefits of vitamin C? How do you identify the early signs of a deficiency? We will be discussing all of this and more... How vitamin C boosts immunity? One of the most important reasons why people are fixated on vitamin C is that it’s

believed to be an immunity booster. Is this true? Absolutely! There are multiple ways Vitamin C helps your body’s immune system. It boosts the production of lymphocytes and phagocytes. These are white blood cells that protect your body against infection. Vitamin C protects these white blood cells from damage caused by free radicals. This means white blood cells are able to do their tasks more effectively. Another way Vitamin C helps your body is by strengthening skin barriers. It is a

 Signs Your Body Is Lacking Vitamin C 2020

very crucial part of your skin’s defense system. Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant and is actively transported to the skin. Research has shown vitamin C shortens wound healing time. Studies have found that people who had pneumonia were also low in Vitamin C. After being supplemented, their recovery time shortened. Vitamin C boosts immunity by shortening the wound healing time, helping white blood cells work more effectively, and strengthening the skin’s defense system. Are you

enjoying the video so far? Well, we have more surprising information in store for you. But before we continue, why not subscribe to our channel for more videos like this, and hit the bell icon so you're always up to date. Other Benefits of Vitamin C #1 Reduces the risk of chronic disease Vitamin C itself is an antioxidant. It boosts the antioxidant level in the blood. These protect the body from oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Researchers have found a direct link between oxidative stress and chronic disease. Experts say vitamin C can increase the antioxidant level in your blood by up to 30%. So your body can fight inflammation better and reduce the chances of illness. #2 Promotes brain health Being a strong antioxidant, vitamin C combats oxidative stress and prevents inflammation in the body. Studies have linked inflammation near the brain, nerves, and spine with

Signs Your Body Is Lacking Vitamin C 2020
increased chances of developing dementia. Dementia is an illness typically found in older adults and is characterized by loss of memory and poor thinking. Experts say that without adequate vitamin C your brain finds it difficult to think and remember properly. So, for a protective effect on your memory and brain, eat more vitamin C! #3 May prevent iron deficiency Iron is a very important vital nutrient. It’s deficiency causes anemia. Iron is crucial to make red blood cells that transport oxygen throughout the body. So what does Vitamin C have to do with this. Turns out, a lot! Not all types of iron are bioavailable. Vitamin C converts this poorly absorbed iron into a form that the body can absorb easily. Research even found that consuming 100 milligrams of vitamin C improved the

 Signs Your Body Is Lacking Vitamin C 2020

absorption of iron by 67%. If you have low iron levels in the body, try vitamin C along with eating iron-rich foods. #4 Prevents gout attacks Around 4% of Americans are affected by a specific type of arthritis known as gout. This painful inflammation of joints is characterized by too much uric acid in the blood. People with gout disease experience sudden severe attacks of pain. Uric acid is a metabolic waste generated by the body. If there is too much of it, it crystallizes and gets deposited in the joints. Vitamin C helps in reducing uric acid in the blood. As a result, it prevents gout attacks. There have been studies to analyse the effect of vitamin C in preventing a gout attack. One such study followed

46,994 healthy men over a period of twenty years and monitored their vitamin C intake. It was found that people who took vitamin C supplements were at a 44% lower risk of developing gout. #5 Lowers the risk of heart disease The leading cause of death worldwide is heart disease. The main risk factors for heart disease are hypertension, high (bad) cholesterol, low (good) cholesterol, and high triglycerides. Experts believe vitamin C helps in reducing these risk factors, which further reduce the chances of developing heart disease. An analysis of nine studies, which included a combined 293,172 participants, concluded that taking at least 700 milligrams of vitamin C daily reduced the risk of heart

Signs Your Body Is Lacking Vitamin C 2020
disease by 25% in comparison with those who have none. In short, if you want a healthy heart, try including vitamin C in your daily diet along with adopting a healthier lifestyle. Now before we move ahead to the next section of our video, here is another you’ll like. Botox injections might give you desired results, but sometimes the side effects can be just plain scary. Watch this video to find out more. Symptoms of Vitamin C Deficiency Although rare, you can still develop vitamin C deficiency through anorexia, poor diet, alcoholism, and smoking. It takes months to develop severe symptoms,

but look out for these signs. #1 Dry rough skin Vitamin C is crucial for the production of collagen. Collagen is a structural protein found in skin, hair, bones, joints, and blood vessels. Vitamin C deficiency can cause a skin condition called keratosis pilaris. Keratosis pilaris is characterized by bumpy ‘chicken’ skin on the back of the upper arms, buttocks, and thighs. This happens due to the build up of keratin protein inside skin pores. Lack of collagen can also give you rough, dry skin that appears dull. Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant that protects skin from oxidative stress caused by free radicals. These free radicals are produced by constant sun exposure, or pollutants like cigarette

 Signs Your Body Is Lacking Vitamin C 2020

smoke. #2 Red lines or spots on nails Do you have thin and brittle nails? Chances are high that vitamin C deficiency is the issue. Though more common due to iron deficiency, spoon-shaped nails carrying red spots or lines on them have been linked with lower levels of vitamin C. Red lines and spots are known as splinter hemorrhage. They are caused by rupturing of weak blood vessels. Lack of vitamin C results in poor collagen. This weakens the blood vessels further, and results in easy rupturing in the form of red spots on the nails. #3 Swollen joints that are painful Joints contain

connective tissues that are rich in collagen. There have been various studies linking lower levels of vitamin C with severe joint issues, making it difficult to walk. This could give the person a limp. Experts say that vitamin C deficiency can cause bleeding within the joints, resulting in more pain and swelling. #4 Bleeding gums and tooth loss Do you struggle with swollen red gums that bleed way too easily? Maybe you need to watch your vitamin C intake. If your diet is inadequate in vitamin C, there are high chances your gum tissues may become inflamed and weak. The blood vessels inside will

bleed easily. In fact, if the deficiency is severe, you may notice purple gums that appear rotten. It is necessary to treat vitamin C deficiency, or else it will eventually result in tooth loss. #5 Persistent iron deficiency and fatigue Iron and vitamin C deficiencies often go hand in hand. Low levels of vitamin C cause a drop in the absorption of iron from plant-based sources affecting metabolism negatively.

Poor levels of vitamin C may cause iron deficiency, particularly in people who are dependent on plant-based foods for their iron intake. If your anemia has been persistent without any apparent cause, you may need to look into your vitamin C intake. How to incorporate vitamin C in your daily diet? It is recommended that the daily intake of vitamin C for women is 75 milligrams. For men, it is 90. To increase your vitamin C intake, include lemon juice in your diet. Do this by drinking lemonade, or squeezing it over a bowl of fresh salad. Broccoli is an excellent source of vitamin C. You can also prepare a vitamin C power punch of fruit salad by including generous helpings of oranges, strawberries, and kiwis. I prefer adding lychee and papaya, as they are also great sources of the vitamin. Have you noticed any signs of vitamin C deficiency? Let us know in the comments below. We would love to hear from you!

4 Healthiest Plants To Have In Your House 2020

Welcome back viewers! Now that we’re stuck inside more than we’re used to, it’s time to make your space work for you! Did you know that your home might be housing more harmful pollutants than outside? These gasses are called volatile organic compounds or VOCs. Things like air fresheners, craft supplies, paint, and even household cleaners could be emitting harmful VOCs all around you. But don’t worry, in today’s video we’re gonna tell you how you can solve this problem and create clean air space, to match that clean workspace, with plants. Do plants really have health benefits? Can they boost your mood? Do they really clean the air around you? We’re talking all that and more. Plants that you should have in your house: #1 Spider Plant This has to be one of the easiest plants to

find and to take care of. Even if you have a knack for killing plants, the spider plant might be right for you. This plant is really cool looking and prefers lots of bright, indirect sunlight. This one is great if you have pets at home as it’s non toxic, and very resilient. Make sure to water this one a few times a week. According to one study from Nasa, spider plants are fantastic at getting rid of formaldehyde from the air. This study was conducted under extremely controlled conditions, so it might not be as effective as this study claims, but it can’t hurt to keep one close to your workspace, to make sure you get the most of its cleansing health benefits. This plant is also said to remove carbon monoxide and xylene. Fun fact - spider plants will grow “spiderettes” that you can snip off, and re-pot to create more spider plants. Give them to your friends and family, or grow your own collection! You won’t believe this next plant, but before we get to it, don’t forget to hit that subscribe button and click the

notification bell so you never miss any updates from Bestie! #2 Snake Plant Spiders and snakes, oh my! Don’t worry, we’re still talking about plants, and the snake plant is another really easy plant to take care of. It likes to be on the drier side, so you shouldn’t need to water it everyday, and it can take a wide range of light levels so it should be okay in most rooms. As long as that room gets some sunlight you’ll be good to go. This plant looks really cool, and is said to release oxygen into the air along with removing harmful chemicals like: formaldehyde, xylene, benzene, toluene, and trichloroethylene. #3 Chrysanthemum If you wanna add a splash of colour to your living room or kitchen, Chrysanthemums or “mums” are a wonderful choice! They come in many colours including white, orange, yellow and pink. Pet owners beware this one is toxic to both cats and dogs. While

 4 Healthiest Plants To Have In Your House 2020

inside, keep these plants damp, and in the sunlight. When the weather is warm you can plant them outside, too. Mums are at the top of the list when it comes to air purification, they’re said to remove common toxins like formaldehyde, xylene, ammonia and benzene. However they’re only “working” when the flowers are in bloom so, you’ve got about 6 weeks of purification. #4 Ficus or Weeping Fig According to NASAs clean air study the Weeping Fig is one of the top contenders for cleansing air borne toxins like formaldehyde, xylene and toluene, which can build up from carpet and furniture cleaners or stain removers. Unfortunately this one is also toxic to cats and dogs, so keep them away

4 Healthiest Plants To Have In Your House 2020
from your pets! On the up side, they’re pretty easy to care for, just keep them out of the direct sunlight, away from any drafts and allow the soil to get pretty dry before watering again. They can get pretty big too, which can be a plus or a negative depending on your living situation. #5 Dracaenas This plant is perfect for those of you who want something a little different for your home. In fact, you can choose from over 40 different types of Dracaenas! These plants are credited with removing
harmful toxins like trichloroethylene which can come from household paint strippers, varnish removers and even adhesives. Pet owners beware this is another one that’s toxic for your four legged friends. This plant needs a medium amount of sunlight so make sure you put it in a room that gets a few solid hours. They can also grow anywhere from 8 - 10 feet so make sure you’ve got space for this one. #6 English Ivy Here’s one that’s really easy to care for and you can keep in the bathroom of all

places! This one is especially great if you like to dye your hair at home, because English Ivy is said to reduce levels of trichloroethylene, formaldehyde, xylene, ammonia and benzene which can be found in a lot of salon products. It’s also great for the bathroom because this plant is said to help remove mold, too. This is another plant that is, unfortunately, toxic to your cats and dogs, so if you do have some furry friends at home make sure this plant is completely out of reach. Give it a generous amount of water and at least a few hours of direct sunlight, daily. Although it should be able to handle lower levels of light, which is part of what makes this plant so easy to take care of! #7 Peace Lily It’s relaxing just thinking about a peace lily. They’re beautiful plants that offer up stunning white flowers

4 Healthiest Plants To Have In Your House 2020
when in bloom. This plant is known for having a high transpiration rate. This means that when you water it, the water actually works over time and helps bring moisture back into the room. This reduces dust in the room and can calm any irritants to your eyes, nose and mouth. One study shows that plants like this can reduce dust by 20%, Cool huh? This one takes a little more work to keep happy, but if you’re up to the challenge you’ll be rewarded with beautiful lilies. This one is also toxic for pets, and requires morning sunlight only. You can mist the leaves and make sure to keep the soil nice and damp. #8 Aloe Vera This is one of the easiest plants to care for on our list, and one of the

 4 Healthiest Plants To Have In Your House 2020

most giving plants, too. Aloe vera is where the soothing gel of aloe comes from, and is an instant remedy for burns and wound healing. Along with skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, insect bites, and blisters. It’s great to keep in your kitchen for quick relief from burns or any wounds. Just break off one of the spikes and squeeze out the clear liquid inside. This plant will thrive in full sunlight and is said to help clear the air of toxins like formaldehyde and benzene which can be found in detergents and floor finishes. Just a heads up, this is another plant that is toxic to your pets. That’s a great

starting point to get more plants into your house. Now that you know which plants to look out for here’s some of the health benefits you’ll enjoy once you add some plants to your home. The Health Benefits Clears the Air Of Toxins We touched on this a little earlier in the video but house plants can help trap harmful toxins and re-release them as less harmful by products. Besides the NASA study we mentioned earlier another study shows that having house plants can remove up to 10 percent of carbon dioxide within the home. They Boost Your Mood Yes, plants are a natural way to feel a little better each day by boosting your mood. This book says that touching soft or smooth plants can help

you to feel calmer. Not only that plants can teach us about empathy. Which is the ability to understand the feelings of someone else. Something very valuable in everyday life. By caring for a plant you can increase feelings of compassion and according to one study people who spend time caring for plants are much more likely to care for others. If you have a plant that flowers, even better because flowers make you feel happier almost right away, just by looking at them! According to a study they can also help improve memory function. Holistic Therapy Some folks use gardens as therapy, whether it’s the simple act of gardening yourself, or just walking through a garden. Have you ever walked through a beautiful public garden? It’s very calming and that’s just one of the benefits of Holistic Therapy. Research shows that HT can help improve the health of those suffering with

schizophrenia, depression, dementia and even those struggling with late stage cancer. Plants are a great addition and can help boost your mood, have stronger relationships and can possibly help with your productivity. Some research says that even a picture of nature will have a similar effect if plants aren’t right for you.

Early Warning Signs You’re At Risk For Osteoporosis 2020

Hi Viewers! Did you know that approximately 10 million Americans have osteoporosis and another 44 million have low bone density, placing them at increased risk? Osteoporosis, which means “porous bones,” is a disease that results due to bone loss. People with osteoporosis are prone to fracturing their bones due to low bone density. In other words, the loss of bone tissue and low bone mass causes weak and fragile bone structure. There are certain signs that you can identify early on, which indicate that you may be at a risk for osteoporosis. And in today’s video, we will tell you what these signs are so that you can take preventive measures early on. From brittle nails, low physical activity, loss of height, age, frequent cramps to bone pain and many more, watch till the end to find

out all of them. Your Bones Break Easily: An easily broken bone is often the first sign that your bones have lost strength. One of the most common broken bones caused by osteoporosis is the wrist. This is often a result of putting an arm out to break a stumble or fall. If you're older and less steady on your feet, a broken hip after an awkward fall is a sign that your bones have lost strength. Strong bones should be able to withstand a bump, or the impact of a fall from standing height. So if you've

broken a bone easily, speak to your doctor. Your doctor may refer you for tests to find out more about your bone strength and if you're at risk of breaking another. You Have Low levels Of Physical Activity: Osteoporosis has been linked to overall decline in physical fitness, as measured by aerobic capacity, muscle strength, and even balance. If your general fitness declines, it is likely that bone mass will also decline. Low levels of physical activity and prolonged periods of inactivity can contribute to an increased rate of bone loss. Lack of exercise is a risk factor for many chronic conditions, increasing your risk of falling and breaking a bone. Instead of feeling scared or worried by these changes, take the opportunity to put more attention on your personal health and longevity by taking care of your bones. Even women who have been sedentary their whole lives can make

 Early Warning Signs You’re At Risk For Osteoporosis 2020

significant gains. And even people in their 80s and 90s have the ability to adapt and respond to both endurance and strength training. Enjoying this list so far?

State of your jaw: One of the most common indications of osteoporosis is your jaw. Your teeth are connected to the jaw, and if the jaw is losing bone mass, the gums can begin to recede from the teeth. Your jaw is not as solid or dense as the other bones in your body, and therefore, bone loss usually occurs here first. If

Early Warning Signs You’re At Risk For Osteoporosis 2020
you experience symptoms of teeth problems, gum disease, or difficulty speaking and chewing your food, this may be a sign that you are experiencing a decrease in bone density. Decrease in grip strength: As you grow older, one of the surest ways to reduce the risk of falling and fracturing a bone is knowing how to protect your bones. Those with osteoporosis are prone to fracturing bones due to low bone density, so, having good balance, overall muscle strength, and grip strength are fundamental. If you are losing strength when holding onto things, this can be a clear sign that your muscles are weakening, and the development of osteoporosis may be occurring. You’re Naturally Thin Or Small Framed: If your bones are small and thin to begin with, you have less bone to lose.

People with small, delicate frames are likely to develop osteoporosis at a younger age. This doesn’t mean that heavy or big-boned people don’t get osteoporosis. It’s just that people who are thin or small-boned don’t have as far to go before they’re at risk for fracture. You reach peak bone mass and stop building bone when you’re between 20 and 25 years old, and somewhere between 30 and 40, you start losing bone. The rate of bone loss depends on your genetics and on how vigilant you are about diet, exercise, and other factors that keep our bones strong. If you’re under age 40, do everything you can in your 30s to build bone. Eat a diet high in dairy and other calcium-rich foods

Early Warning Signs You’re At Risk For Osteoporosis 2020
and get plenty of high-impact exercise, which is anything that involves running or jumping. If you’re 40 or older, continue to eat nutritiously, add a calcium-magnesium-vitamin D supplement, and do strength-training exercise in addition to impact exercise. Strength training has been shown to prevent bone loss. You’re lactose intolerant or have other reasons for not drinking milk: Milk is one of the best bone-builders, and not just because of the calcium. Vitamin D, an important ingredient in fortified milk, is even more important. Most American adults are severely D-deficient, putting them at risk for not only weak bones but for several types of cancer. And store-bought milk, which is fortified with vitamin D, is one of the only dietary sources of this important nutrient. It’s the calcium

 vitamin D, and other minerals in milk that are important, not the milk itself. Look for soy or rice milk that’s been fortified with these nutrients, and drink it regularly. Also take a supplement that contains calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D as these three minerals work synergistically to build and protect your bone. You have a first or second degree relative who had osteoporosis before the age of 50: Family history is a major indicator that your bones are weakening. If you come from a family where the older adults have a history of fractures, poor posture, or loss of height, chances are your family

members had osteoporosis, whether or not it was ever diagnosed. And if they had it, it’s likely you do too. Compile a family health history by talking to your parents, grandparents, and anyone else privy to family information. If you had relatives who suffered from osteoporosis, tell your doctor. If you’re younger and your doctor has been resisting requests for a bone scan, this information will aid you in your quest, as doctors take family history seriously. Loss of Height: Another major sign of osteoporosis is loss of height and a condition that causes someone to look hunched over or having a stooped posture. The clinical term for this excess curvature is kyphosis. Losing height is a normal

part of aging but if you lose more height than average, that could be a sign of osteoporosis. Similarly, kyphosis, or being hunched over is not a normal part of aging. Kyphosis comes from having those silent fractures in the back that are signs of osteoporosis. Emotional stress: New research suggests that stress may play a role in bone health. Women with high levels of stress had lower bone density six years later compared to those with lower stress levels. Exactly how psychological stress affects bones isn’t well understood, but researchers believe stress contributes to system-wide inflammation. And inflammation can slow down osteoblasts which are bone-forming cells and promote osteoclasts which are cells that break down bone. Other studies have also linked depression to lower bone

Early Warning Signs You’re At Risk For Osteoporosis 2020
density. Age: One of the biggest risk factors for developing osteoporosis is, unfortunately, age. Patients 50 and older are considered most at risk for developing the condition. Women who are 65 and older and men who are 70 and older should be screened regularly as well. They are at a heightened risk for having undiagnosed osteoporosis and could sustain greater injuries from a fall. Cramps and Bone Pain: Regular muscle cramps and pains are an often overlooked but otherwise well-known early symptom of Osteoporosis. It signifies a severe absence of Vitamin D – the most important bone builder. There can be a good number of reasons causing leg and foot cramps. But cramps that occur at night often signify that the calcium, magnesium, or potassium levels in your

 blood have dropped too low. If this situation were to persist over time, excessive bone loss could occur. Your Nails Chip Or Break Easily: Both nails and bones consist of disulphide bonds that cause proteins to stick to one another. While nails are composed of hardened protein cells called Keratin, bones are composed of collagen protein. If you have been constantly complaining of brittle nails that chip or break easily, it could mean that the disulphide bonds in your nails are weak and need to be strengthened. This could also hold true for the disulphide bonds in your bones. Weak nails or vertical ridges on your nails could also be an indicator that you need to add more calcium to your diet. And

you may be at a risk for Osteoporosis. Your heart races faster than usual: This refers to the number of times your heart beats per minute while your body is undertaking any physical task. It is widely understood that your heart rate is a reflection of your fitness and physical capability. A resting pulse higher than 80 beats/min may increase the risk of pelvis, hip or spine fracture when getting up from a seated position. People who lead sedentary lifestyles are those who tend to have higher resting heart rates, especially those who are overweight. It is advisable to exercise regularly. You can practice 30-minutes of brisk walking, tennis, running, dancing. Guided zumba or aerobic classes could be considered too. Are you at a risk for Osteoporosis based on the signs that we mentioned today? Has anyone in your family had Osteoporosis? Let us know in the comments section below!

Dehydration can trigger headaches and sluggishness, which can make you feel worse. Frequent sips of water and other fluids can stave off dehydration and help you feel better. Caffeine increases urination, which can contribute

 to dehydration, so stick to herbal or non-caffeinated teas. Mustard Seeds: Mustard seeds are one of the effective home remedies for fever. The phytonutrients present in mustard seeds can bring down fever in both adults and children. Take a handful of mustard seeds and put in a cup of warm water. This should be steeped well for the next 5 minutes and then consumed. It will surely help in the treatment of fever without much effort. Follow this till the problem is completely treated. Take A Lukewarm Bath: Taking bath in lukewarm will work brilliantly in lowering down your body

temperature. Avoiding a bath during fever will intensify your problem as the infection can take over your body. Also, avoid cold water to soak yourself as it will warm up your interior body than cooling it down. You can also try taking a sponge bath or can place a damp cloth on your forehead and neck. Armpit and inguinal region are high heat areas which can also be sponged with cool water to decrease your body temperature. Load Up on Vitamin C: Vitamin C plays an important role in your body. It is very helpful in strengthening your immune system. Along with limes, oranges, grapefruits, leafy

 7 Natural Remedies To Bring Down Your Fever 2020

greens, and other fruits and vegetables, lemons are a good source of vitamin C. Adding fresh lemon juice to hot tea with honey may reduce phlegm when you’re sick. Drinking hot or cold lemonade may also help. While these drinks may not help reduce your fever entirely, they can help you get the vitamin C that your immune system needs. Getting enough vitamin C can also relieve upper respiratory tract infections and other illnesses. Apply Cold Packs: This is one of the simplest and

easiest things you can do while suffering from fever. It requires very little effort. All you need is a bowl of cold water and a cotton handkerchief. You can ask your family or friends to apply this cold pack. Just take a bowl of cold water. Now wet the piece of handkerchief with this water and make sure to squeeze the excess liquid out. Put it over your forehead, cheeks, neck, chest, abdomen or lower leg. Repeat this cold pack application for at least 15 minutes for relief. Avoid using chilled water or ice cubes for the cold pack as it may worsen your fever. Get Plenty Of Rest: Getting enough

rest helps your body heal faster by strengthening the immune system. In addition, a lot of physical activity can raise your temperature even more, so avoid moving around too much if you can help it. If you're able, take time off of work or school so you can rest up and start feeling better faster. Sleep deprivation can weaken the immune system, increase the production of stress hormones, put you at higher risk for chronic disease, and lower life expectancy. So make sure you get plenty of sleep as well. Drink Turmeric Milk: Curcumin is a major component of turmeric. Research shows that it

possesses properties that can mitigate any inflammation that may surface with fever or flu. It possesses antipyretic properties that decrease body temperature during fever. Boil a glass of milk. Then add 1 teaspoon of turmeric and mix well. Drink it while it is warm. Have one cup two times a day for best results. Apple Cider Vinegar: Apart from being a common remedy for weight loss, reduced cholesterol, and blood sugar, ACV is also good to combat fever. Its slightly acidic nature

leaves a cooling effect on your body. Take a spoonful of a mixture of 2 parts ACV and 1 part honey, and have it 3-4 times a day. You can also use ACV as a sponging base. Take some clean napkins and soak them in a liquid of diluted apple cider vinegar with 1 part ACV to 2 parts water. Use them as cold-compresses by placing them on your forehead, stomach or feet for best results. Eat Bland, Mild Foods: It’s normal to experience loss of appetite when you have a fever. Eating mostly mild, bland

 7 Natural Remedies To Bring Down Your Fever 2020

foods can be helpful, especially if vomiting occurs. You don’t need to force yourself to eat, but do drink up. Bland foods include bananas, oatmeal and bone broth. Fruit juice popsicles are often good for children. But generally, try to offer unrefined, less sugary foods when possible. Take a Fever Reducer: Often, one of the most effective ways to bring down a fever is to use over the counter

medications such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen. Aspirin can also be effective for adults, but it should not be given to children or teenagers. Be sure to use the proper dosage and don’t use them along with other fever-reducing medications. This is because taking too much fever reducing medication is not only ineffective, but it is also dangerous! You can sustain damage to your organs and it won’t help bring your temperature down any faster. Since many multi symptom cough and cold remedies contain acetaminophen, it is extremely important to check the ingredients of all the medications that you are using. Increase Your Probiotic Intake: Probiotics are especially helpful in

healing the gut, even during illness, as they help support the immune system. Did you know that more than 70 percent of your entire immune system is located in your digestive tract? When you have a fever, it’s your immune system that’s compromised. Probiotics can help reduce the risk of certain acute common infectious diseases and enhance immune function. Sipping on some kombucha or having some miso soup or yogurt may help when you are sick with fever. Don’t Overdress: Don’t bundle up with blankets or extra clothes, even if you have the chills, because this may keep the fever from coming down or even make it go higher. Instead, try one layer of lightweight clothing and one

7 Natural Remedies To Bring Down Your Fever 2020
lightweight blanket for sleep. The room should be at a comfortable temperature. However, if the room is hot or stuffy, a fan may help circulate the air. Try Wet Sock Treatment: The wet sock treatment may sound strange, but many people swear by this natural remedy to help stimulate the immune system and increase blood circulation. It is best to use this technique on the first day of the illness and to do it for a few nights in a row for maximum effectiveness. First, you will need to warm your feet in a warm bath or shower. Dry them completely. Then, right before going to bed, soak a thin pair of cotton socks in cold water, wring them out and slip them on. Cover with a pair of dry wool

socks. The wet socks should be warm and dry in the morning. If you wake in the middle of the night and the socks are already dry, repeat before going back to sleep. Turn To Essential oils: You can sweat it out with peppermint oil, ginger oil, and cinnamon bark oil which can help warm the circulatory system and cause sweating. Lavender, thyme, rosemary, eucalyptus, and sage oils also help to provide soothing comfort when treating a fever. Try applying a few drops of lavender oil in cool water and soak a washcloth in the mixture. Rest it on your forehead for a cooling, relaxing effect. Alternatively, mix a few drops of peppermint oil with coconut oil and rub it on the bottoms of your feet and the back of your neck. Do you get sick often? What is your best home remedy for fever?

The Military Diet 2020 Will Make You Lose 10 Pounds In 3 Days

This Military Diet Can Help You Lose 10 Pounds In 3 Days In this video, you’re going to learn about how the Military Diet can help you lose 10 pounds in just 3 days! There are many different types of diets that are constantly being advertised and recommended. The trouble is finding one that can actually “talk the talk and walk the walk.” According to Dr. Mark Hyman, a nine-time #1 New York Times bestselling author, states that one of the number one reasons diets fail is because the person doesn’t have a plan that fits them. Good health is not something that is just given to people, they have to plan and earn. Before we begin this video, don’t forget to subscribe to our channel for more daily

tips like this and turn on notifications so you never miss our new videos! Without further adieu, let's talk about how the Military Diet can help you lose 10 pounds in just 3 days. Fat loss has long been something that most humans have desired to master. Everyone can benefit from gaining some muscle and losing some body fat (unless you’re Phil Heath then in that case, you’re already maxed out), not only in terms of aesthetics but also for health reasons. Lowering body fat and lowering one’s body weight can do wonders in terms of blood pressure, cholesterol, or just simply being more athletic. But at the end of the day, a diet (or fat loss) can be reduced to burning more calories and eating less

calories. Weight loss is bound to occur when you eat less than what your body needs. Simply put: eat less, move more. That way your body will tap into stored body fat as energy (as opposed to the food you eat.) But some of us need a jump start on our diets, a huge reduction on the scale can give us that boost and motivation that we need. Here is the 3-day military diet that can help you lose 10 pounds! (This diet is intended for women, but men are recommended to add an extra 100 calories a day in the form of protein.) Note: this diet may (or may not) actually be used by members of the military. But it does work! Not because of some fancy foods that can burn fat but simply because of the reduction of

 The Military Diet 2020 Will Make You Lose 10 Pounds In 3 Days

calories. (Hint: ice cream is included in this diet…but in moderation!) Breakfast may be one of the most essential meals of the day simply because it will give you that desired energy first thing in the morning and it can help kickstart your metabolism. For your first meal of this 3 day military diet you can have half a grapefruit, 1 slice of toast (preferably whole wheat or multigrain) with 2 tablespoons of peanut butter. If you have a peanut allergy you can substitute it with almond butter, soy butter, sunflower seed butter, hummus, pumpkin butter, or bean dip. And any breakfast isn’t complete

The Military Diet 2020 Will Make You Lose 10 Pounds In 3 Days
without 1 cup of black coffee or caffeinated tea. Please note, you cannot add any sugar, cream, milk or sweeteners into your coffee or tea. These beverages are not essential to the diet as you can substitute it with any amount of water. But green tea and coffee both have thermogenic properties (burns more calories) and black coffee has the ability to suppress your appetite. The next meal of the

day (lunch) consists of half a cup of tuna, another slice of toast (but no peanut butter this time) and water, black coffee or tea. If you need to season your foods then go with alternatives such as garlic salt, pepper, honey mustard, and any other low or no calorie seasoning. For dinner, you can have 3 ounces of any type of meat, 1 cup of green beans, half a banana, one small apple and one cup of

vanilla ice cream. As you can tell, there isn’t a lot of food in this diet and that’s because lowering calories is what causes weight loss. If you wanna drop the pounds, you got to cut the calories! The next morning, breakfast should include one slice of multigrain or whole wheat toast, one whole egg, and half a banana. This diet is intended to last three days, and then take 4 days off. Rinse and repeat until you achieve the results you desire. The 4 days off do not mean you can binge eat and eat

yourself to sickness. The goal should still be to eat around 1,500 calories or less. For lunch, you are entitled to one cup of cottage cheese (or you can replace it with 1 slice of cheddar cheese), 1 hard boiled egg and 5 saltine crackers. Due to the low amount of food on this diet, it is not recommended to work out intensely during these days. Instead, go for a brisk 30 minute walk on a daily basis. Dinner is served! You can have two hot dogs (minus the buns), 1 cup of broccoli, half a cup of carrots, half a banana, and half a cup of vanilla ice cream. This diet dictates vanilla ice cream only

(why? I have no clue) but you can substitute ice cream (who would do that?) with one cup of apple juice or one cup of vanilla, strawberry or banana flavored almond milk. The vegetables on this diet should be steamed, baked, boiled or eaten raw. Meat should be grilled or baked, and if you are a vegetarian then you can substitute the protein sources with tofu, lentils, beans and/or portobello mushrooms. The third and final day has arrived! You’re almost there, don’t give up now! For breakfast, you are to have 5 saltine crackers, 1 slice of cheddar cheese and 1 small apple. Saltine

 The Military Diet 2020 Will Make You Lose 10 Pounds In 3 Days

crackers can be replaced with rice cakes (one for one) and cheddar cheese can be replaced with ham, eggs, cabbage or soy cheese. Don’t forget your black coffee or caffeinated tea! This lunch is going to be a bit small but on the menu is one slice of whole wheat or multigrain toast and one hard boiled egg. You can switch the egg out for one cup of milk, or two slices of bacon or just one chicken wing. As you can probably tell, from day 1 to day 3 there is a slow and gradual reduction of even more calories (hence the rapid weight loss.) For the last meal of day 3, you can have 1 cup of tuna, half a banana and one cup of vanilla ice cream. And remember, there is no snacking allowed on this diet.

The Military Diet 2020 Will Make You Lose 10 Pounds In 3 Days
You need to eat these foods and these foods only. You can switch the foods around, so you can have dinner for breakfast and vice versa but you cannot add any additional foods in! Alcohol is strictly prohibited on this diet (even though alcohol is a macronutrient but without nutritional value), even on your 4 days off, you should not be consuming alcohol especially beer or fruity drinks (it’s just empty calories!) If you MUST drink then only one glass of wine is permitted. Please remember, weight and fat loss are two different entities. 10 pounds lost in 3 days does not mean 10 pounds of fat. The reduction in calories (and salt as well) will cause you to shed some water weight, some intestinal

mass (poop) and some fat as well. Now that you have your diet plan, it never hurts to add in some exercises that will help catapult you to your goal. Lunges: A basic lunge works multiple muscles at the same time. By working out multiple muscles, you are maximizing your calorie burn. Squats: If you are looking for an efficient and popular exercise for weight loss, look no further than squats. The reason why this exercise is so effective and popular is because it allows you to engage your core and work out your lower body. Jump Rope: You might be thinking that jump rope is a children's activity, but it’s much more than that. It’s a total body-toning exercise that practically screams weight loss.

Push-Up: Another classic exercise. It fires up your chest, shoulders and arms. If you have proper form when you’re doing this exercise, your abs will even get a workout. One thing to remember when you are on this diet and performing these exercises is not to get discouraged. If you don’t see progress right away, that’s alright, it takes time for some people to reach their goal. The key is to maintain a positive attitude and remain dedicated to your plan. So if you think this diet is for you, give it a go! Also, if you have any other exercises or diet plan suggestions, please leave a comment below, we would love to hear your suggestions. One more thing, if you are considering doing the Military Diet, make sure to consult a physician first before jumping into such a strict diet.
