Green Coffee is made up of Unroasted green beans of Coffee. Green Coffee beans are more beneficial for consumption is due to the substance called ‘chlorogenic acid’ that is present in unroasted coffee beans.

Fiber Rich Foods For Daily Consumption.

What is fiber?

Dietary fiber is the indigestible portion of food derived from plants. There are two types of fiber – Soluble fiber which dissolves in water, it slows down digestion & Insoluble fiber helps in smooth and ease defecation.

Usually we should consume foods which are high in fiber daily. So that we can prevent any health problems related to constipation, indigestion and all. When a nutrionist  suggest his/her patients a high fiber diet , which means the patients have some issues related to indigestion – constipation or something else. There may be various reasons for particular condition of patient but what I am try to say is our daily diet should include high fiber foods to prevent any health conditions.

Let’s jump into the foods which contain high fiber are :

  • Apple (1 medium) – 5 gms of dietary fiber
  • Pear (1 medium) – 6 gms of dietary fiber
  • Sweet potato (1 medium) – 4gms of dietary fiber
  • Broccoli (1 medium stalk) – 3 gms of dietary fiber
  • Green beans (3/4th cup) – 3gms of dietary fiber
  • Onion (1 medium) – 3 gms of dietary fiber
  • Avocado (1/2) – 5 gms of dietary fiber
  • Black beans (1/2 cup cooked) – 8 gms of dietary fiber
  • Lentils (1/2 cup cooked) – 8 gms of dietary fiber

Based on energy intake, a level of about 40g of fiber/2000 Kcal in a diet is considered reasonably safe by Indian council of Medical Research.Intakes in excess of 60 g of fibre over a day can reduce the absorption of nutrients and may cause irritation in the bowel apart from diarrhoea.

Dietary fibers can lower the glycemic impact of foods, which can be especially beneficial for people managing their blood sugar levels. A high fiber diet can reduce the risk of stroke, hypertension and heart diseases. Also helps in weight loss and weight management.

ALERT for NIGHT OWLS

ALERT for NIGHT OWLS

Night owl – A person who is habitually active or wakeful at night.
Lark – A person who habitually gets up early and feels energetic early in the day.

We all know that sleeping at late night causes lots of disadvantages. And that disadvantages are not temporary what we feel on next day morning. But that affect through out your life. Ayurveda has given ideal time for sleep i.e. 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. which is best for your body and mind. Medical Science has also proven that late night sleeping is associated with many diseases and disorders.

In today’s generation it is most common thing, I don’t think we should mention it as a problem cause It has became a habit now (by choice). Reasons behind that vary on what type of person you are , Students have to be awake for studies – exams , same way job workers has also some deadlines for completion of work , some people just spend time on social media till late night. Eveningness is also associated with unhealthy diet habits (more fat intake) which leads to increase risk of cardiometabolic diseases. In geriatrics eveningness is associated with depression and mood disorders.

Late night persons also experience greater “social jetlag”, which is caused by going to bed and waking up later on non-working days compared to working days. Greater social jetlag is also associated with overweight.

People who wake up late have an internal biological clock that doesn’t match their external environment. Ultimately it may results in to long term problems – increase prevalence of wide variety of diseases or disorders, including diabetes, psychological, neurological, respiratory and gastrointestinal/abdominal disorders.
Night owls have 10% higher risk of dying sooner than larks according to a study from Northwestern Medicine and University of Survey in UK.

Coffee Coffee and Coffee

Coffee Coffee and Coffee

Coffee is the one of the most common consumed beverages worldwide and have positive health benefits.

Today I am sharing all great benefits of drinking coffee daily.

People who drink coffee appear to live longer. Drinking coffee was associated with lower risk of death due to heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes & kidney disease. People who consumed a cup of coffee a day were 12 percent less likely to die compared to those who didn’t drink coffee. This association was even stronger for those who drank two to three cups a day – 18 percent reduced chances of death.

Coffee contains a lot of antioxidants and phenolic compounds that play an important role in cancer prevention. Coffee may also increase elimination of steroids. Whether you like your coffee black, decaf, half-caff or even instant, feel free to drink up. Coffee consumption decreases the risk of colorectal cancer. Caffeine alone is not responsible for coffee’s protective properties.

The levels of beneficial compounds per serving of coffee vary depending on the bean, roast and brewing method.“said Stephanie Schmit, PHD, MPH.

Conclusion : COFFEE CAN BE INCORPORATED INTO A HEALTHY DIET & LIFESTYLE.
