Are You At Risk For AMD ?

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a chronic irreversible medical condition that results in the loss of central vision because of damage to the macular, also known as the central part of the retina. It occurs with increasing age and is most commonly seen in people who are over 60 years of age. One may see shadows in vision, have distorted vision, experience 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 help prevent AMD and slow progression of the disease by preventing blue light from reaching the underlying structures of the retina, thereby reducing the risk of light-induced oxidative damage that could lead to AMD.

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.

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.

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.  

Practice Good Eating Habit

According to the American Dental Association, consuming a balanced and nutritious diet is an essential aspect of caring for your teeth. Foods that are rich in Calcium and Protein such as dairy products, lean meats, soy products and nuts play an important role in protecting and rebuilding your tooth enamel. It is also important to avoid excessive intake of candy, soft drinks and cookies which can lead to tooth decay due to their high sugar content.

Hair Styling Without Damaging Your Hair

Hair quality can be compromised through the constant exposure to heat through blow-drying or perming. It may result in split ends which are non-reversible, so please ensure that sufficient nourishment is supplied before and after the heat-styling. You can always visit your hair stylist for styling which causes lesser harm. Lastly, always use products that are made of natural ingredients.

Easy Steps For Dandruff Prevention

Dandruff happens due to the faster turnover of skin cells on our scalp. It is more prevalent among people with imbalanced oil level (oil or dry scalp) and is common among men.

Solution To Leukorrhea

Leukorrhea is a thick, whitish or yellowish vaginal discharge which is caused by inflammation and infection around the vaginal areas as well as the usage of vaginal deodorants. Power up your own immune defence system through the intake of probiotics which may help to inhibit the growth of yeast and other microbes that can possibly lead to abnormal discharge. Pick underwear made of cotton and avoid nylon as nylon retains sweat and increases the risk of infection. Good hygiene and a well-balanced diet are essential to reduce the risk of infections.

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.

Effective Natural Relief For Constipation

Constipation can happen because the colon absorbs too much water or is sluggish. Insufficient fiber intake is the likely cause in most cases. 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.

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.

However, French fries are high in saturated fat, which will increase the production of cholesterol in the body. Hence, eat fried foods sparingly.

Omega-3 fortified foods for health?

Research shows omega-3 fats help keeping heart, joints and brain healthy. The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for omega-3 fats in the UK is 450mg for adults and 200mg for children. Recognizing the health benefits of omega-3, a lot of foods are now fortified with this healthy fat. But, are they sufficient to supply the need? To reach the recommended daily amounts, an adult needs to eat 5 omega-3 enriched eggs daily! A 6-ounce salmon has 100 times higher omega-3 content compared with fortified yoghurt. So, go get the salmon or tuna instead!
