Eat Healthy Stay Healthy

Here are a few interesting facts about Bananas.

Bananas contain three natural sugars – sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A Banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.

Research has proven that just two Bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minutes workout. No wonder the Banana is the number one fruit amongst the world’s leading athletes.

But energy isn’t the only way a Banana can help us stay fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

Depression – According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a Banana. This is because Bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to relax you, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

Premenstrual Syndrome – Bananas contain vitamin B6 that regulates the blood glucose levels, which in turn helps in maintaining your mood.

Anemia – High in iron, Bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood, thus helps in cases of anemia.

Blood Pressure – This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure, so much so that the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the Banana industry to make official claims for the fruit’s ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

Brain Power – 200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school (England) were helped through their exams by eating Bananas at breakfast and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

Constipation – High in fiber, including Bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

Hangovers – One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a Banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The Banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey it builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

Heartburn – Bananas have a natural antacid effect on the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a Banana for soothing relief.

Morning Sickness – Snacking on Bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

Insect Bites – Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a Banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.

Nerves – Bananas are high in vitamin B that calms the nervous system..

Overweight and at work – Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours.

Ulcers – The Banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chroniclercases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

Temperature Control – Bananas are seen as a ‘cooling’ fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand, for example, pregnant women eat Bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.

So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many illnesses. When you compare it to an Apple, it has FOUR TIMES the protein, TWICE the carbohydrate, THREE TIMES the phosphorus, FIVE TIMES the vitamin A and iron, and TWICE the other vitamins and minerals.. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around So may be its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, ‘A BANANA a day keeps the doctor away!’

Bananas must be the reason monkeys are so happy all the time 😛

My final verdict :-

Aahmmm short of words to describe the goodness of this product. Definitely it stands up to all its claims. And much to your surprise, it goes beyond its claims. If you are tired of all those expensive treatments and long parlour sessions, just for the sake of getting rid of those annoying patches and spots on your skin; and yet haven’t got rid of it; go natural this time. Medimix sandalwood is one such product which is specially formulated to give you a clear skin. Within weeks you will see visible changes in your skin. Your skin will get clearer with every use.

Use this soap twice a day. Don’t use any other product simultaneously, this soap alone can do wonders to your skin. No product works overnight so you gotta be patient and let the product work at its space. You should wash your face too with this soap twice instead of opting for a separate face wash. Within a month you will find a clear, bright and glowing skin. If you suffer from a really bad skin with frequent breakouts and blemish marks then mark my words ‘ this is THE BEST product for you’. Ten people will give you 100 different remedies , but you gotta be wise and choose the best for your skin. Whatever you choose make sure you stick to one product. Don’t switch from product to product because that would harm your skin more.

Medimix sandalwood claims that it is suitable for all skin types including the most sensitive skin; which is true; anyone can use this product without having second thoughts on it. This product tends to make your skin dry in winters, but nothing that a moisturiser or body lotion can’t help. So be rest assured you can rely on this product all 365 days. You also notice a more even-toned skin without much effort. You even stop getting frequent breakout. You might get rare breakouts but it clears within a day or so.

That’s all for now. Do try this product and write to me about your experience. Will cya soon with some other product. Until then stay gorgeous and let that curve be on your face 🙂

Good Bye Dark CIrcles

Hello hello hello,

Here I am after a long time. A big welcome to all my readers 🙂

Since i was busy all this while i couldn’t blog, but as i got some time free i thought of blogging. Well some few days back one of my friends consulted me regarding her dark circles. I suggested her some easy home remedies and guess what it actually helped her a lot. I don’t have dark circles so never used any remedies but the remedies have helped my frien so I thought of sharing it with you guys too.

If your tired of those annoying dark circles under your beautiful eyes, worry not its time to say ‘GOOD BYE’ dark circles.

Before we move to the remedies let us see the reasons for these dark circles.

Most of us blame dark circles on lack of sleep, exhaustion or staring at the computer screen for hours. But the truth goes deeper than those dark pools you’ve tried so hard to fight. Experts and studies have linked dark circles to graver problems like anemia, liver disease and dehydration.

First, lets understand how dark circles appear. We have tiny blood vessels which are like a web under the skin. But these capillaries are so fine that the red blood cells queue up to pass through; in the process some of them leak in the surrounding area. Enzymes are produced during the cleaning up session. The breaking down of these red blood cells leaves them black and blue. The reason why this is so visible is that the skin around the eyes is the thinnest.

Some common reasons for dark circles are aging, hereditary and genetic factors, nutritional deficiency, sleep deprivation and tiredness, smoking and drinking, sun exposure, hormonal changes, allergies, etc.

REMEDIES
1) Tomato paste, 1 tspn lemon juice, a pinch of gram floor & turmeric. Mix them well and apply it gently around your eyes. Rinse it off with clean water after 15-20 minutes. Do this twice or thrice a week.

2) One common remedy is to keep slices of cucumber or potato over your eyes. You may instead even apply cucumber juice with a cotton ball. Rinse it after 15-20 minutes or may keep it overnight.
If there is eye puffiness mix tomato & cucumber juice and apply for 10-20 minutes.

3) Apply almond oil every night before going to bed and wash with cold water next morning. Do this for at least a month.

4) Apply crushed mint leaves over your eyes and keep it for 5-10 minutes. Then wipe it off gently with a clean and cold cloth.

5) You can even try the mixture of orange juice and glycerin OR
Cucumber juice and lemon juice in equal quantities and wag with water after 15-20 minutes. You can replace lemon or cucumber juice with tomato juice, whichever is convenient or available at the moment.

So those were some easy home remedies you can try to get rid of those annoying dark circles. Do try these remedies and let me know if they helped you. That’s all for now, will come up with some more interesting stuffs soon. Till then take care stay healthy and beautiful. See ya 🙂

Face packs for treating acne pimples and their marks.

Pat your face dry and apply moisturizer. Do this just once a week. (Multani miti 2tspn or as per your need to cover your entire face and neck. Equal quantity of rosé water and lemon juice to form a thick paste of the mixture)

Pack-2 :- Gram flour/besan (channe ka aata) with curd/yogurt, mix well to form a thick paste. Apply on clean face and neck. Keep it for 20-30 minutes.
