Smoking Can Affect Your Vision Health

Smoking is a risk factor for certain eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. This is because it reduces blood flow and nutrient supply to the eyes and increases the amount of toxic substances like tar and nicotine in the body.  Hence, protect your eyes by quitting smoking. Consider taking an eye care supplement that contains Lutein, Zeaxanthin and various antioxidants to reduce age-related vision degeneration.

Eye-Friendly Nutrients For Dry Eyes

Many contact lens users, especially those who work in air-conditioned room, complain of having dry eyes.

B Vitamins Preserve Brain Health

Vitamin B6, B12 and folic acid - are known to reduce the level of homocysteine in the blood. Elevated levels of Homocysteine are associated with an increased risk of stroke, cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease. A study of a group of elderly patients with mild cognitive impairment found that after two years of intervention with high doses of B6, B12 and folic acid there was significantly less brain shrinkage compared to a subset that was given placebo treatment.

Help Your Brain To Stay Hydrated

Every cell in your body needs water to thrive, and your brain cells are no exception; in fact, about three-quarters of your brain is made of water. An Ohio University study found that people whose bodies were well hydrated scored significantly better on tests of brainpower, compared with those who were not drinking enough.

Keep Your Toothbrush Clean

Keeping your toothbrush clean is vital for your oral health. Always rinse your toothbrush with water after using it. Store your toothbrush in an upright position and allow it to air-dry until the next use. Do not routinely cover toothbrushes or store them in closed containers, as it  encourages the growth of bacteria. It is also important to replace your toothbrush approximately every three to four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed.  You may also opt for toothbrushes with anti-bacterial bristles to prevent bacteria growth on the brushhead. 

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. Also, brushing too hard can damage enamel and cause the recession of gum. The build-up of plaque may cause gum disease which leads to gum bleeding and sensitivity. Pick a soft brush with fine bristles to reduce abrasion on tooth structure and to better cleanse the gum line. A toothbrush with a compact brush head allows you to brush hard-to-reach areas, like back teeth, which can be easily missed when brushing with a normal-sized brush head.

Moisturize Dry Scalp

We put in a lot of efforts to make sure that our skin is well-moisturized but tend to forget the layer of skin underneath the hair. A person with dry skin will most likely have a dry scalp too. Having dry skin is the most common cause of an itchy and flaking scalp. Scalp oil moisturizes the scalp better than creams or lotions as it stays longer on the scalp. Jojoba oil is the most commonly used scalp oil, and other options include almond, flax seed or olive oil. Apply the scalp oil onto wet hair,as it prevents oil from getting into hair. Also, choose a shampoo with citrus oil, tea tree oil or chamomile oil as it rinses out oil treatment effectively.

The Right Comb For Silky Hair

A good comb helps you to obtain healthy hair. Spend 3 minutes inspecting a comb. To avoid scalp irritation, choose a comb with smooth edges, and avoid comb that cause discomfort or pain. Next, choose wide-toothed combs as they are better for detangling hair. A good comb needs to have sufficient thickness to remain straight and unbent when you are combing your hair. Also, choose a comb with anti-static properties, it helps to prevent fizzy hair. Lastly, ox horn and certain other wood combs will help you to achieve silky hair.

Caffeine During Pregnancy

An excess caffeine intake may lead to low birth weight and miscarriage. Caffeine may affect a baby’s growth as it can constrict blood vessels and limit the nutrient that are supplies to baby. Also, caffeine inhibits iron absorption. The low iron stores at the fetal stage leads to a higher risk of iron deficiency during infant development. Yet, pregnant mothers need not avoid caffeine totally. The American Dietetic Association suggests 300mg daily (equals to 3 cups of coffee) as the upper limit of caffeine intake for pregnant women. Other sources of Caffeine include tea, soda, chocolates and energy drink!

Bigger May Not Be Better During Pregnancy

Weight gain during pregnancy varies among women. If you are underweight (BMI <18.5), you should gain 12.5-18kg. If your weight is normal (BMI 18.5-25), the recommended weight gain is 11.5-16kg. For overweight mother-to-be (BMI 25.1-29.9), the weight gain should between 7-11.5kg. For those who are obese, the weight gain should be less than 7kg. Avoid sudden and excessive weight gain as these are associated with adverse health effects such as pregnancy induced hypertension, gestational diabetes and complications during delivery.

Vinegar – Japan’s secret to longevity

Vinegar has a reputation for being a natural antiseptic, preservative and culinary ingredient. It is used in sushi not only to add flavour but as a preservative to prevent decomposition of raw fish (sashimi). Vinegar contains organic acids including acetic acid and citric acid which help to support digestive health, promote growth of good bacteria for regular bowel movement and reduce cholesterol level and alkalinize blood pH.

Take 5 from the computer

Computers have become necessities in our daily lives. It’s important to maintain good eye habits and good posture, as long term repeated usage can lead to repetitive strain injury. Ideally, the computer screen should be 18-30 inches away from you. Take short, frequent breaks of at least 30 seconds after every 20 minutes of computer use to rest your muscles and eyes. Bilberry is naturally rich in anthocyanins that alleviate fatigue and guard your eyes against the glaring damage.

Why the Japanese live the longest?

Want to know the secret why the Japanese live the longest? There is a small village which is 2 hours drive from Tokyo, Yuzurihara 'Village of Long Life' with villagers live up to 90s with extremely good health. They have remarkably youthful skin, surprisingly good eyesight, strong and flexible joints. Their secrets? a diet rich in hyaluronic acid. Dr Toyosuki investigated the intriguing phenomenon and found that the villagers ate abundance of starchy root vegetables - konnyaku, taro, sweet potato and so on - which are naturally high in hyaluronic acid. A molecule produced naturally by your body, hyaluronic acid is greatly distributed in joints, skin and eyes. Known as 'Super Water Magnet', hyaluronic acid is commonly used as nature's moisturizer in skin supplement and skin care products. It traps moisture within skin layers, plumps up flaccid skin cells, smoothens fine lines and wrinkles.

Minimize sunlight exposure.

Overexposure to harmful UV rays can cause up to 20% more collagen loss in skin. Always ensure you have sun protection and stay out of the sun from 10am to 4pm, when the rays are the most intense. According to Environmental Working Group in UK, there are currently no sunscreens that meet their safety levels. Common sunscreen contains Vitamin A (retinol/ retinyl palmitate) which may increase the risk of cancer or disrupt hormonal balance. Choose sunscreen without these harmful chemicals. For added protection, wear a hat and cover up.
