salad

The health benefits of eating salad every day are just countless. Not only will salad help you lose weight, but also it’s extremely beneficial for your hair, skin and general health and well-being. If you need to be more convinced to prepare a bowl of salad, here are ten reasons why you should eat salad every day.

1. Good for Eyesight

Yes, salads help sharpen your eyesight. Spinach, red lettuce and a few other veggies, are loaded with vitamin A carotenoids, zeaxanthin and lutein. These nutrients help in preventing your body against high-energy light that may have caused eye damage.

Vision are very important in our daily life, without it, we would be troubled when doing the activity that requires us to see in a long distance. Nowadays young people eyesight becomes bad because of too much playing in front of their gadget.

2. A natural source of fiber

It’s hard to believe that something we can’t even digest can be so good for us! Your body does need a lot of fibre. Salads add fiber to the diet, this in turn reduces cholesterol levels and prevent constipation. High fiber salads eaten before a meal helps you in consuming higher calorie foods served afterward.

3. Salad for weight loss

Eating a fiber-rich salad before your entree will help you to feel full faster, so you’ll consume less calories than you might when a meal is served without this appetizer. The more raw vegetables you can incorporate into your salad, the greater the potential positive effects will be.

4. Boosts Immune System

The best way to boost your immune system and keep yourself free from diseases is by eating salads. Eating salads regularly is a great way to not only increase your vegetable intake but the antioxidants present in the salad also boost your immune system.

5. Build strong bones

Low vitamin K levels have been linked with low bone mineral density in women. For healthy bone growth, a recommended full daily serving can be found in just 1 cup of watercress (100%), radicchio (120%) or spinach (170%).

6. Strengthens Muscles

The nutrients found in spinach not only help to build strong bones, they also help to improve the performance of the mitochondria – little structures inside our cells that help to produce energy, as well as inform and power our muscles.

7. Improve skin tone

Salad is awesome for everything about your health but in terms of a beauty investment this one offers a motherload of benefits for such an easy dietary addition.

The high levels of water found in salad veggies improves hydration in our bodies, which is necessary for youthful skin tone and various basic bodily functions.

 

8. Detox Your Body

Chlorophyll contents can inhibit the body’s absorption

10 Best Non-Toxic Nail Polish Brands for a Healthy Mani BY PAIGE STABLES

Best non-toxic nail polishKSENIYA OVCHINNIKOVAGETTY IMAGES

Traditional nail polish has acquired a bad rap, largely due to chemical ingredients and a harsh odor. Besides irritating your senses with a poignant scent, “nail polishes contain solvents and some ingredients that can potentially cause health issues and irritation if inhaled in large quantities,” says Sabina Wizemann, a senior chemist in the Health, Beauty & Environmental Sciences Lab at the Good Housekeeping Institute.

The strong aroma may not be the only thing that’s harsh about some nail polishes: chemicals in common nail lacquer formulas could potentially enter the body through your nail beds. study by researchers at Duke University detected evidence of a common nail polish chemical called triphenyl phosphate, or TPHP, in the bodies of every woman who volunteered to paint her nails for the study.

The good news: many advancements have been made in nail polish formulations since this study. There are options without that particular harmful chemical, and other potentially dangerous ingredients, which brings us to so-called “nontoxic” or “natural” nail lacquers.

What makes a nail polish non-toxic?

“Products are crossing off ‘toxic’ ingredients from formulas at rapid speed, and some brands offer vegan and gluten-free options,” says Wizemann. Most non-toxic nail polishes are three-free, meaning they do not contain formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate. Beyond that, polishes go as far as being nine-, or 10-, or even 14-free. Here’s the breakdown of what’s missing (thankfully!) from those formulas:

  • 5-free contains no formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, camphor
  • 7-free contains no formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, xylene
  • 9-free contains no formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, xylene, parabens, acetone
  • 10-free contains no formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, xylene, parabens, acetone, TPHP, TBHP, gluten

No matter which formula you choose, follow instructions, avoiding use in poorly-ventilated areas. Still wary? “Water-based formulas incorporate non-synthetic pigments and aqueous acrylic polymers, plus they are also odorless,” says Wizemann. Though easy to apply, they are often not as long-lasting. Here, the “cleanest” nail lacquers available right now:

27 Health and Nutrition Tips That Are Actually Evidence-Based By Healthline

It’s easy to get confused when it comes to health and nutrition.

Even qualified experts often seem to hold opposing opinions.

Yet, despite all the disagreements, a number of wellness tips are well supported by research.

Here are 27 health and nutrition tips that are actually based on good science.

27 Health and Nutrition Tips
1. Don’t drink sugar calories

Sugary drinks are among the most fattening items you can put into your body.

This is because your brain doesn’t measure calories from liquid sugar the same way it does for solid food (1Trusted Source).

Therefore, when you drink soda, you end up eating more total calories (2Trusted Source3Trusted Source).

Sugary drinks are strongly associated with obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and many other health problems (4Trusted Source5Trusted Source6Trusted Source7Trusted Source).

Keep in mind that certain fruit juices may be almost as bad as soda in this regard, as they sometimes contain just as much sugar. Their small amounts of antioxidants do not negate the sugar’s harmful effects (8Trusted Source).

2. Eat nuts

Despite being high in fat, nuts are incredibly nutritious and healthy.

They’re loaded with magnesium, vitamin E, fiber, and various other nutrients (9).

Studies demonstrate that nuts can help you lose weight and may help fight type 2 diabetes and heart disease (10Trusted Source11Trusted Source12Trusted Source).

Additionally, your body doesn’t absorb 10–15% of the calories in nuts. Some evidence also suggests that this food can boost metabolism (13Trusted Source).

In one study, almonds were shown to increase weight loss by 62%, compared with complex carbs (14Trusted Source).

3. Avoid processed junk food (eat real food instead)

Processed junk food is incredibly unhealthy.

These foods have been engineered to trigger your pleasure centers, so they trick your brain into overeating — even promoting food addiction in some people (15Trusted Source).

They’re usually low in fiber, protein, and micronutrients but high in unhealthy ingredients like added sugar and refined grains. Thus, they provide mostly empty calories.

4. Don’t fear coffee

Coffee is very healthy.

It’s high in antioxidants, and studies have linked coffee intake to longevity and a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, and numerous other illnesses (16Trusted Source17Trusted Source18Trusted Source192021Trusted Source).

5. Eat fatty fish

Fish is a great source of high-quality protein and healthy fat.

This is particularly true of fatty fish, such as salmon, which is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and various other nutrients (22).

Studies show that people who eat the most fish have a lower risk of several conditions, including heart disease, dementia, and depression (23Trusted Source24Trusted Source25).

6. Get enough sleep

The importance of getting enough quality sleep cannot be overstated.

Poor sleep can drive insulin resistance, disrupt your appetite hormones, and reduce your physical and mental performance (26Trusted Source27Trusted Source28Trusted Source29Trusted Source).

What’s more, poor sleep is one of the strongest individual risk factors for weight gain and obesity. One study linked insufficient sleep to an 89% and 55% increased risk of obesity in children and adults, respectively (30Trusted Source).

7. Take care of

Flu Shot Side Effects And Misconceptions, According To Doctors BY SARAH BRADLEY AND CASSIE SHORTSLEEVE

Cold and flu treatment set. Pills, throat spray, thermometer, cup of tea with lemon on simple yellow background. Health care therapy. Flat lay, top view.

Definitely don’t mean to sound like your mom here, but…did you get your flu shot last year? Follow-up question: Have you gotten yours this year?

Just asking because, you know, the flu can be deadly. Up to 61,200 people died from it last season alone (between October 2018 and May 2019), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Just as a baseline, the flu can cause 12,000 deaths per year during a mild season, and anything over 56,000 deaths per year is considered a more severe bout, per the CDC. Eek.

What’s more: Experts are predicting that this year’s 2019-2020 flu season will be pretty bad, reports The New York Times, based on a recent flu outbreak in Australia, which can sometimes predict what the flu virus will be like in the U.S.

In 2017, Australia had its worst outbreak in 20 years, and the 2017-2018 flu season in the United States (which comes

Do You Need a Vitamin D Supplement? BY KRISTEN DOMONELL

child's sunshine drawing on a rain covered window

Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium, helping you build strong bones and stave off osteoporosis. It’s also important for your immune system and your muscles. Typically, the sun helps your body produce all the vitamin D you need, or at least close enough that you can get the rest through your diet.

But if you live in the Pacific Northwest, there’s a good chance you aren’t getting enough of it in the fall and winter months, says Heather Tick, M.D., a family medicine doctor at University of Washington Medical Center-Roosevelt.

“Even if you go to the top of Mount Rainier in the middle of winter and get a sunburn, you won’t be getting the UVB rays you need to make vitamin D,” she says.

This is a problem, because vitamin D deficiency has been linked to a whole host of health issues from heart disease and depression to Parkinson’s diseasemultiple sclerosisdementia and Alzheimer’s disease. And if you’re diagnosed with breast cancer or prostate cancer, your chances of survival may be lower than someone with normal vitamin D levels.

So how can you tell if you need more vitamin D—and if you should stock up on supplements to make it through the next few months? Here’s everything you need to know about the sunny day vitamin.

Sun, sardines and supplements: How your body gets vitamin D

The sun emits two types of ultraviolet rays that reach the earth: UVA (long-wave) and UVB (short-wave). UVA rays penetrate your skin more deeply. UVB rays, on the other hand, help your body make vitamin D. But getting the vitamin D you need isn’t quite as simple as stepping outside.

In the winter—especially in northern latitudes—the sun never gets high enough in the sky for UVB rays to penetrate the atmosphere and reach your skin, says Tick.

That means that from about September to June, you can’t rely on the sun to give you the vitamin D you need, she says. Plus, if you wear sunscreen in the summer, as you should, you can kiss your vitamin D production goodbye.

Sunny days aside, you can also get vitamin D from food, but the options are limited. Fatty fish like salmon, swordfish, tuna, mackerel and sardines are all sources of vitamin D, as are egg yolks. Some cereals, orange juice, milk, cheese and yogurt are fortified with vitamin D, too, meaning it’s added in during production to make it easier for people to sneak in vitamin D.

How much vitamin D do you need?

Unless you are really vigilant about tracking vitamin D in the foods you eat, it can be hard to know if you’re getting enough. Symptoms of vitamin D deficiency can be vague, says Lucille Marchand, M.D., a family medicine doctor at UW Medical Center.

Many people who have lower-than-normal vitamin D levels don’t realize it. Your doctor may suggest a blood test to measure your vitamin D level if you have fatigue, muscle aches or bone aches that can’t be attributed to something else, she says.

“If they correct the deficiency, chances are, they’re going to help that person feel better,” says Marchand.

How much do you need? The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommended dietary allowance is 600 international units up to age 70, and 800 IU for people who are older. Both Marchand and Tick agree these recommendations are conservative.

Plus, higher daily doses through supplementation may be beneficial for people with chronic pain or those who are trying to
