Eat Folate-Rich Foods:
“Folic acid is crucial for the proper development of the baby’s neural tube (it covers the spinal cord), and it’s vital for the creation of new red blood cells,” says the doctors . Even before you find out you’re pregnant, it’s smart to start eating plenty of folate-rich foods like fortified cereals, asparagus, lentils, wheat germ, oranges, and orange juice.
Dates:
Eating 4 dates daily in the last four weeks of pregnancy reduces the induction and augmentation of the labor, and produces favourable delivery outcome.
Go Shoe Shopping:
At last — a perfect excuse to buy shoes! As your bump grows, so may your feet — or at least they may feel like they are. That’s because your natural weight gain throws off your center of gravity, putting extra pressure on your tootsies. Over time this added pressure can cause painful over-pronation, or flattening out of the feet. You may retain fluids, too, which can make your feet and ankles swell.
To prevent these problems, wear comfy shoes with good support. Many expectant moms find they need a larger shoe size even after they give birth, so go a step up if you need to.

Beta Carotene

#nutrifit #fitness #itsRight_to_know_what_we_eat

 By seeing the title don’t conclude this topic is related to chemistry. Just kidding!! 

Beta carotene is one of the essential nutrition which is consumed daily by us through food. This word carotene derived from the Latin word “carota” which means carrot.

Beta carotene is an organic red orange pigment which is rich in vegetables,fruits and plants. Some of the rich beta carotene foods are,

Carrot

Cabbage

Sweet potato

Grapes

Onions

Peas

Pepper

Plums

Pumpkin

Spinach

Chilli powder

Palm oil

Sprouts

Mango and 

Papaya

 Beta carotene plays a vital role in our health. It adds both pros and cons in human body. Some of which are discussed here.

Pros:

  Beta carotene is also called as “provitamin A” which is later converted into vitamin A. As we all knew vitamin A is good for Vision and also helpful in the immune system by generating white blood cells.

  Beta carotene is good in reducing the free radicals. As we all knew free radicals always search for an electron to make the molecule stable this will leads to cell destruction and tissue destruction. If enough amount of beta carotene is consumed free radicals will be neutralized. By this neutralisation beta carotene leads to a flawless glowing healthy skin. It is also acts as an anti oxidant.It also protects skin from sun damage.

Beta carotene strengthen the lungs of old people. It also prevents from cancer and heart disease. 

 Beta carotene consumed in the form of food is always good and effective. Avoid supplements.

Cons:

Beta carotene as said before is provitamin A later converted into vitamin A. This conversion is directly proportional to the metabolism. If you have low metabolism (low thyroid results in low metabolic rates) only less amount of beta carotene conversion occurs and the excess amount of beta carotene deposites in the tissues. Which will reduce thyroid interaction with the cells in future. This leads to different colour variations of face and body called as carotenemia. 

Beta carotene also has some severe effects on smokers and former smokers where intake of beta carotene as supplements results in cancers. It is always healthy to consume naturally.

As a conclusion consume natural beta carotene from the fruits and vegetables, better avoid beta carotene as supplements. If you have low thyroid function and smoking habits while taking medication intimate doctor to limit your beta carotene supplements. 

Hope this article adds some of the known and unknown effects of our daily food intake. Please give your valuable comments in the comment box below which will help me in enhancing myself. Thank you and Happy reading.

Soaked rice water

‚Äčunnamed

From the early days we have known this term called ” palaya saadham” which our grand parents and mom used to eat as break fast.usually we scold them not to use not knowing it’s health benefits. Most of the things which our ancestors followed had some scientific reasons which was untold. Now it’s been reveled by some of the scientists and we do follow(some of us) the things that has been followed by our grand parents.

Here am taking one such thing which is ” soaked rice water ” which is called as ” palaya sadham ” in Tamil. Left over rice from the previous day has been immersed in water and that has been consumed as the break fast in the another day along with butter milk,spiceless pickles such as lemon pickle which was filled with lots of health benefits.

This soaked rice water has rare vitamins like B-14,B-6 that adds health benefits. This also helps in better digestion . it also has many different varieties of bacterias that helps in soothing stomach and intestines. This also reduce constipation.

Soaked fresh rice water (kanji)helps in digestion and adds immunity during fever. Consuming rice water also helps in maintaining good physic.

Thulasi (Basil)

Thulasi is a well known herb which is grown in almost all the houses in tamilnadu. Which has many more benefits. This basil is of two types the one with green leaves (Lakshmi thulasi) one with pink leaves ( Krishna thulasi).

This thulasi plant is well known for its health benefits in clearing cold and cough. These leaves can be consumed directly or dried powder leaves can also be used along with water or milk for clearing throat.

In all the temples in South India ” theertham” holy water will be given after the prayer which is mixed with this holy basil to help people to consume it directly, to maintain their immune levels. 

The unknown hint about this basil plant is it gives oxygen for 20 hours(o2) and ozone (o3) for 4 hours. As a study result published by TOI if the people in India grows 18 basil plants in their home then the ozone layer above India will be strengthen.

So this might be a reason behind growing the basil plants in homes from olden days.
