Have Blurred and Cloudy Vision? Why?

A cataract is a condition in which the clear lens of the eyes becomes cloudy, preventing sufficient light rays from entering the eyes and impairing vision. Age is the most common reason for developing cataracts. Development of cataract is also associated with family history (if family or relative has cataract before), unhealthy lifestyle (such as smoking and heavy alcohol intake) and prolonged exposure to sunlight or radiation. Cataracts can cause eyes to be irritable to glare easily, lead to decrease in visual acuity and cause vision to be blurred and cloudy, or even result in double vision.

Eye-friendly nutrients for dry eyes

Dry eye is the most common complaint among contact lens users especially those who work in air- conditioned room. Eye-friendly nutrients such as DHA, Antioxidants, Beta carotene and Lutien are important to support healthy eye functions including maintaining natural moisture level in the eye.  Include AFC Bilberry Lutein DX to your daily supplement regimen to preserve your eye health.

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. 

Is memory decline due to aging is preventable?

Some parts of brain essential for memory are highly vulnerable to aging. With increasing age, brain losses its nerve cells and becomes less efficient. Brain aging can be accelerated with exposure to poisons, tobacco, alcohol. Studies have shown that memory problems among older people can be lessened with physical and mental stimulations to improve mental performance. DHA is highly researched as an important fatty acids that support brain function and reduce aging decline.

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.  

Keep your toothbrush clean

Keeping your toothbrush clean is vital to your oral health. Always rinse your toothbrush with water after brushing. Store your toothbrush in an upright position, if possible, and allow it to air-dry until using it again. Don't routinely cover toothbrushes or store them in closed containers, which can encourage 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 toothbrush with anti-bacterial bristles to prevent bacteria growth on brushhead.

Hair styling without the damage.

Exposure to heat through blow-drying or perming can affect the quality of hair. It may result in split ends which are non-reversible. Please ensure that sufficient nourishment is supplied before and after the heat-styling. You can always consult your hair stylist for styling which causes lesser harm, and products with natural ingredients.

Regular trimming promote hair growth?

Wrong. A haircut has no effect on the rate of hair growth. Trim it or not, hair grows at the rate of one inch per month. Hair growth will not be affected by trimming the hair end. The only proven factors that affect rate of hair growth are genetics, hormones, and diet. However, chopping of the split ends may promote better hair growth. As the presence of split ends impede healthy hair growth. Avoid split ends by preventing over-styling in the first place is more effective for healthy hair growth!

Exercise strengthens joint functions

Joint pain can be caused by many different factors, include wear and tear, injury and osteoarthritis.  Will exercise aggravate joint pain? No. Exercise such as brisk walking can help to maintain bone strength, strengthen muscles and tissues around your joints. It helps to ease arthritis joint pain, increase strength and flexibility.

Stretch and flex.

Regular stretching helps keep muscles and joints strong and reduce the incidence of injury. To increase your joint’s current range of motion, the surrounding muscles have to be stretched progressively beyond their accustomed length. For example, stretching your waist muscles can help prevent back injury. Stand with a half squat with feet shoulder-width apart, knees bent and hands on hips. Bend slowly to the left then back to the center. Then bend to the right. You should feel the tension at your waist muscles. Keep it parallel without leaning forwards or backwards. It takes merely 5 minutes for 10 repetitions!
