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.

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.

DHA for eye and brain health

Do you know that hyperactivity disorder in children, cognitive decline in elderly, poor memory and depression are associated with DHA omega 3 deficiencies? Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is a valuable nutrient found abundantly in the brain and retina to support brain development, maintain optimal brain function and preserve eye health.

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, you can remove plaque from the areas between your teeth where the 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 having big interdental gaps can use a special interdental toothbrush for more effective cleansing effect.

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.
