DHA For Brain Development

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

DHA For Eye And Brain Health

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is a valuable nutrient that is found abundantly in the brain and retina that support brain development, maintains optimal brain function and preserves eye health.

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.  

Why Should You Use Dental Floss?

To have good oral health, it is not enough to brush your teeth twice a day, you need to floss at least once a day too. By flossing daily, plaque is removed from the areas between your teeth where your toothbrush cannot reach. This is important because plaque that is not removed by brushing and flossing can eventually harden into tartar. In addition, people who are wearing braces or have big interdental gaps can use a special interdental toothbrush for a more effective cleansing effect.

Healthy Diet For Healthy Hair

Nuts supply zinc which promotes stronger hair and stimulates healthy hair growth. Do not forget the greens, as they are loaded with Vitamin A to relieve itching and scalp dryness and Vitamin C which may retard hair loss. Also, whole grains are rich in silicon which prevents brittle hairs. Vitamin Bs from meat and mushrooms can help delay the onset of gray hair. Lastly, keep your diet low in unhealthy fats, as excess fats consumption leads to oily hair.  Beauty starts within, so begins with a healthy natural diet for healthy hair!

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.

High Heels & Foot Pain!

Research shows that women who wear high heels have shorter muscle fibres and thicker and stiffer Achilles’ tendons. In the long run, this limits the motions of the ankle and heels-wearer will find it painful to walk in flat-soled shoes. The occasional swapping between flat-soled shoes and high heels will help to keep your tendons stretched and will also prevent aching feet. Also, regular stretching relieves the tensed muscle fibers. It is important to choose your shoes wisely. Platform shoes are often better than stilettos, and always opt for shoes with a snug fit.

Soluble fiber from oats, rice bran, and fruit will help to soften stools for easy elimination. Whole grains, cereals, seeds, and the skin of most fruits and vegetables provide insoluble fibers that help the stool pass quickly through the intestines. To meet your daily fiber needs, aim for at least 2 servings of fruit and 3 cups of vegetables/ legumes. Also, drink at least 8 glasses of water to aid regular bowel movement.

Quality sleep for good health

Aim to get a good night’s rest of 6-8 hours of sleep for good health. A lack of sleep can cause muscle aches, dizziness, weight gain, attention deficit and lack of concentration. It can even increase the risk of developing cancer! The Nurses’ Health Study by Harvard University concludes that people who do not get sufficient amounts of sleep are at a much higher risk of developing breast cancer and colon cancer. Sleep helps to promote healthy secretion of Human Growth Hormone and melatonin that prevent aging and testosterone production.

Liver-Friendly Diet

Firstly, watch your alcohol intake. Processing alcohol stresses your liver significantly. Keeping your liver from toxic chemicals relaxes it and maintains its optimal function. And also, keep yourself away from greasy fatty foods. Saturated fats are harder to process, such as sausages, bacon, hot dogs, and high fat dairy products. Limit the intake of processed food like white rice, biscuits, cakes, pastries, donuts and candy. Fresh fruits and vegetables are good source of enzymes, fibers, vitamins, phyto-nutrients, that help optimize liver functions.

Skin friendly fruits

Eating more Vitamin C-rich fruits, such as strawberry, guava, orange, and papaya may help to ward off wrinkles and age-related dryness. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage -- free radicals are unstable molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. Researches suggest that vitamin C may also reduce sunburn caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation and prevent the consequences of long-term sun exposure, which can lead to skin cancer.  

Wear protective clothing.

Clothing provides up to 98% UV protection against harmful UV rays. Choose tightly-woven fabric over loosely-woven types for the best UV shield. Test the UV-protection level of the fabric by holding it up to the light. If you can see through the fabric, then the UV radiation can penetrate it easily to reach your skin layers. Taking antioxidants can help boost your sun protection from within. Coenzyme Q10 is an essential nutrient and potent antioxidant to fight UV-generated free radicals, and also safeguards your heart and enhances energy levels.
