Are you at risk for AMD ?

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a chronic irreversible medical condition that results in loss of central vision because of damage to the macula, or central part of the retina. It occurs with increasing age and most common for people over 60 years of age. One may see shadows in vision, have distorted vision, or decreasing visual acuity, as well as the inability to discern colours or make out colour contrast when diagnosed with AMD. Studies found that Lutein and Zeaxanthin either help prevent AMD or may slow progression of the disease by block blue light from reaching the underlying structures in the retina, thereby reducing the risk of light-induced oxidative damage that could lead to AMD.

Natural brain food

Avocado is a fruit from Persea americana, a tall evergreen tree that can grow up to 65 feet in height. Avocado is rich in nutrients such as Vitamin E, C, K, Bs, fiber and potassium. Researchers suggests that foods rich in vitamin E—including avocado, whole grain, seed and nuts as well as dark green leafy vegetables which are also high in the Vitamin C—are associated with a lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia that cause the death of brain cells which leading to memory loss and cognitive decline. 

How to use DHA for brain development

During the last trimester of pregnancy and first two years of life, the brain undergoes rapid growth - 'brain growth spurt'. At this stage, brain requires sufficient nutrients especially DHA for the development of sensory, perceptual, cognitive, and motor development. Fetuses and infants receive DHA from mothers through placenta and breast milk. Mothers should ensure sufficient DHA level through rich DHA fishes free from heavy metals and pollutants, and high DHA supplements. Infant fed with formula is highly recommended to have DHA oil added to milk to aid brain development.

Sensitive teeth? Pick the right brush for pain-free brushing

For those with sensitive teeth and bleeding gum, brushing and cleaning interdental spaces can create pain and discomfort. Tooth sensitivity occurs as a result of receding gum and exposed dentin. Many factors lead to sensitivity. Brushing too hard, over time, can damage enamel and cause recession of gum. The build-up of plaque, may cause gum disease, leading to bleeding gum and sensitivity. Pick a soft brush with fine bristles to reduce abrasive on tooth structure and to cleanse the gum line better. A toothbrush with compact brush head allows you to brush hard-to-reach areas, like back teeth, which can be easily missed while brushing with normal-sized brush head.  

Drink green tea for healthy teeth and gums

Green tea contains phytochemicals called Catechins that can fight inflammation and control bacterial infections. A Japanese study found that people who drink green tea regularly have less occurrence of periodontal disease, as compared to infrequent tea drinkers.

hair care tips

Right practice for shampooing!

Daily hair wash is essential for the hot and humid weather in Singapore. But, do you practice the right way in shampooing? The first step should be gently brushing your hair to improve blood circulation in scalp and avoid entangled hair. Rinse hair with warm water to remove the dirt. Do not apply your shampoo directly onto scalp. Make it into foam by using your palms before applying. Massage scalp gently with fingers, not nails. Spend longer time while rinsing to ensure no shampoo residue remains. Tapping your hair by towel and let it dry with cool air. 

SLS-free shampoo!

Check your shampoo label and look for Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) – a common foaming agent that present in 90% commercially available shampoos. SLS is able to permeate the skin effectively and concentrate in some organs such as eyes, brain and heart. It washes away the hair moisture and may lead to premature shedding of hair, clogged hair follicle and finally, and hair loss. Avoid products containing SLS. Seek natural alternatives! AFC Shokaigan Shampoo with zero content of SLS and natural blend of 10 amino acids to gently deep cleanse, unclog hair follicles and regulate hair scalp pH.

For overweight mother (BMI 25.1-29.9), weight gain should between 7-11.5kg. For those who are obese, weight gain is should be <7kg.

Healthy travelling!

Nothing spoils the excitement of discovering a foreign place like falling sick. The most common conditions are diarrhea, nausea, abdominal cramps and bloating. It pays to take extra precautions, particularly if you are travelling to developing countries: always stick to bottled water, avoid eating raw or undercooked food. Wash your hands with soap, and use a hand sanitizer when washing facilities are unavailable.

Probiotics for immunity.

An alternative medicine recognized by National Institute of Health in US, probiotics are commonly used to prevent and treat certain illnesses and support general wellness. Antibiotics kill gut-friendly bacteria as well as the unfriendly bacteria and probiotics are widely used after antibiotics to offset its side effects. A research published in the Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal at April 2010 shows that probiotics reduce the severity of diarrhea and enhance immunity. It also increases bioavailabity of B vitamins, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, and others.

Cut down on fatty foods

Reduce the intake of saturated fats and trans fats is vital to your liver health. Saturated fats are found in deep fried foods, red meats and dairy products. Trans fats are found in processed foods such as cookies and cakes. The liver stores excess dietary fat, and the buildup of fat can eventually leading to fatty liver disease.  

Simple foods for a healthy liver

A poorly functioning liver leads to fatigue, weakness, abdominal pain and loss of appetite. The easiest way to protect your liver is to eat right! Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage contain glucosinolates which help the liver produce enzymes for detoxification. Green leafy vegetables and fruits contain antioxidants that protect the liver from free radical damage. Garlic contains Allicin, which helps rinse out heavy metals such as mercury and lead from the liver. Add these foods into your daily diet to keep your liver healthy!

Less salt, better health!

The average intake of salt of an average adult in Singapore is 9g per day, which is more than the recommended 5g per day. Excessive sodium intake can lead to hypertension and aggravate health problems such as kidney disease, congestive heart failure and premenstrual syndrome. Therefore, it is important to choose and prepare food with less salt and sauces which are the main source of sodium in our diet. 

Choose healthier oils!

Different cooking oils have different smoking points, giving them different optimum heating temperatures for different cooking methods. Unsaturated oils are healthier choices for cooking. However, when unsaturated oils are used in deep frying, they may turn toxic which leads to an increased cancer risk. For light cooking and salad dressings, look to polyunsaturated oils like Sesame oil or Safflower oil. For stir-frying, choose oils with a higher amount of monounsaturated fats like Canola oil.

skin and beauty tips

For makeup that stays:

Start with a clean, moisturized face. It is important to exfoliate regularly to remove dead skin cells, to minimize a blotchy or flaky appearance. For naturally radiant, healthy looking skin, ensure a sufficient intake of collagen in your diet. Collagen is an important protein that is an important building block for healthy skin. A quality collagen formula like Collagen Beauty helps skin regeneration and improves skin clarity for a more youthful appearance.

Water for Beauty.

70% of our body is made up of water. Water is necessary for metabolic activities and regulating the moisture content in skin. With aging, the skin’s water binding ability is significantly reduced. For hydration from within, try Hyaluronic Acid, a skin nutrient that locks up to 6,000 times its weight to retain moisture, smoothen wrinkles, and stimulate repair of damaged skin.
