Research About Coffee and Caffeine Consumption

From the results of the literature review, the association between coffee consumption and increased risk of cardiovascular disease is generally lost after adjustment for (1) coronary heart disease risk factors of conventional and (2) a strong correlation with coffee consumption of unhealthy living habits. In fact some studies have shown a protective effect of coffee consumption on coronary heart disease in patients with diabetes mellitus.

Study in Finland shows results stratified inverse association between coffee drinking to risk of type 2 diabetes, but the mechanism / theoretical basis of this reduced risk is unclear (Tuomilehto et al, 2004).

Werner and Bohm (2006), refers to penelitain prospective cohort of Lopez-Garcia (2006), says there is no association between coffee consumption and an increased risk of fatal and non-fatal myocardial miokardiak. Of this study also showed no correlation between coffee consumption and incidence of DM. The study also did not confirm an association between coffee consumption and arterial hypertension. This is corroborated by the results of the study Winkelmayer et al (2005) found no linear association between caffeine consumption and incident hypertension. Habit of consuming coffee is not associated with an increased risk of hypertension, it is in contrast to regular consumption of cola drinks or diet cola drinks associated with hypertension.

Oily Hair and Face in

Address how this oily skin, especially in skin and facial hair, that hair is not easy greasy?

Oil and sweat are two different things, the producing glands was different. Oil or sebum glands numerous in the face, neck, chest, head and back. Its main function is to moisturize the skin.

In some people, the production of excessive sebum glands that interfere with performance. One way to control the production of sebum glands are the proper cleansing process.

Be careful in deciding to do scrubing rough, because it is not uncommon even cause irritation to the skin, whereas irritant itself would trigger the sebaceous glands to produce. So, clean the skin gently but thoroughly. Continue reading “Oily Hair and Face in”

Aging Characteristics

Peak of the aging process is taking place in the age range 30 years and over, with a number of features such as:

Dry and Rough Skin (Xerosis cutis). This condition is characterized by redness, scales and cracks, caused by lack of skin fat and water content and the decrease of oil and sweat gland activity.
Wrinkles and Loose Skin (Wrinkle and Laxity). Skin looks rigid, inflexible and inelastic. It occurs due to changes and reduction in collagen fibers and elastic fibers that keep the skin elasticity.
There Dull skin and aging Form (pigmentation). Aging can be a form of black spots evenly (melasma) and local spots (freckles and Lentigo). This condition occurs such as due to reduced skin’s ability to release the old skin cells and replacing them with new skin cells.
Tumor-skin tumors. These tumors are classified as benign tumors, with the form of tiny spots on the skin (and seborrheic keratosis Actinic keratosis) as well as a yellowish fatty deposits around the eyes (Xantelasma). All three could appear as you age, due to exposure to sun or due to genetic factors., there are also lesions pre-cancer. Although the first 3 classified as benign, lesions pre-cancerous skin lesions (usually in the form of a mole that enlarges, bleeds easily with uneven black color and certain parts are more concentrated) should immediately consult a physician.

Strict Diet Can Cause Asthma

Crash dieting is one kind of strict diet that makes the culprit eating super low calories for a few weeks. Researchers from Scotland said that this type of diet has long-term health benefits.

Conclusions are drawn from a study conducted by experts at Aberdeen Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen. The volunteers were asked to consume less than 800 calories per day.

As a result, they are known to experience significant weight loss, increased blood pressure, people who are overweight, increase fertility, and reduce asthma symptoms.

A research team at the Centre for Obesity Research and Epidemiology university studied 32 studies examining the health benefits of a diet very low in energy. In addition, researchers are also looking for connections on a strict diet with the risk of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes.

Researchers found that a strict diet in such a short time crash diet to reduce weight significantly even for a long time.

Calculation of Weight Loss With Standard Brocca

Brocca make the definition ideal weight by the formula:

(Height – 100) – 10% (Height – 100)

Brocca measurement method is already well known among the common people as the most easy to understand and use. So many are assuming that if the weight is just above provisions Brocca then someone already feel fat. Brocca actually more appropriate calculation applied to adolescents and young adults. If applied to those older people are often less appropriate, because in addition to height and weight there are many other factors that must be considered.

Factors that are not taken into account in the standard include skeletal Brocca different in each person; composition of muscle, fat, and water are different. In fact, this difference was evident from the difference between the sexes. Example: women tend to have a higher fat composition than men. In contrast, men have more muscle composition.

In addition, a person’s physical activity will also affect body composition. Someone who has a habit of regular exercise will have more muscle composition compared to someone who does not exercise. Age is also a factor to consider. With the increasing age of the person, physical activity will decrease and basal metabolism decreases.

Non-Alcohol Red Wine Lower Blood Pressure

During this red wine has been shown to have several health benefits. For example make the drinker so young. Now one more savor red wine, in particular the non-alcoholic, was found by the researchers. According to them, men at high risk of heart attack will have a lower blood pressure after drinking a non-alcoholic red wine.

As reported by Science Daily the rules of drinking non-alcoholic red wine is mentioned to be done every day for four consecutive weeks. They then reported the results of a study in the journal Circulation Research.

Non-alcoholic red wine itself is increasing the levels of nitric oxide which helps drinkers lowered systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Nitric oxide is a molecule in the body which helps to relax blood vessels and allow blood to flow more smoothly.

Meanwhile, red wine and non-alcoholic alcohol actually has the same amount of polyphenols levels. There polyphenol antioxidants that are also capable of lowering high blood pressure.

Dinner With Family

The importance of eating together in the family has been shown in studies conducted by the University of minesota, Harvard and Rutgers. Research shows that children who eat with their parents will always eat more fruits, vegetables, foods rich in calcium, vitamins, nutrients, and consume less junk food.

Several other studies show that children who eat with family is always a lower risk of doing bad behaviors, such as smoking, drug use, and alcohol consumption.

Children of families who are very attached to consume a healthy diet to get better grades in school and are at low risk taking drugs, cigarettes, and alcohol.

For children who rarely ate with family, girls who eat dinner alone consume fewer fruits, vegetables, calcium-rich foods, and more foods and soft drinks than girls who ate with their parents. Girls who eat with their parents consume more calories.

The amount of non-food objects Ingestion Hazards

A woman who complained of nausea, vomiting, and low blood pressure abdominal infection initially diagnosed by a doctor. But after undergoing a blood test, the levels of enzymes in the heart unstable. By ultrasound, even found a hole in his heart equal to 3 cm.

As reported by My Health News Daily (10/09), it turns out the woman is ever accidentally swallowed a toothpick. Worse, instead of going to the digestive system, the toothpick is actually ‘stray’ and hurt. This fact is quite surprising, because apparently there are already many cases of someone swallowed a toothpick and lead to liver problems. Similarly, as reported by the latest research.

“Swallowing foreign objects that are not food is not a new problem. Unfortunately many people often forget after swallowing something,” researchers wrote in the journal BMK Case Reports.

Many cases of swallowing foreign objects that are not food out of the path of the digestive system. Foreign objects such objects usually are pointy and sharp, such as a toothpick, needle, until the fish spines.

Vitadigest a combination of Dextrin and inulin, both belonging to the KH complex.

= Polysaccharide dextrin and inulin = fructans / group of oligosaccharides and polysaccharides. So both include the type KH are soluble (soluble).

Vitadigest not a kind of oat, but Vitadigest is combined dextrin (partial breakdown of starch) and Inulin (fructans). Digestible dextrin, usually derived from starch. There is a source of whole grains, seeds, tubers, rice, corn, wheat heated dry, for example in the process of baking bread.

Sources of Inulin / fructans are cereals, onion, garlic, asparagus, dahlias, and so forth.

Inulin is not digested in the small intestine and most of fermented in the large intestine. Therefore inulin helps the growth and development of colonic bacteria thereby increasing stool weight. Thus inulin may help healthy digestion.

Nature of both the soluble and tends to increase stool weight, also reduce transit time in the gastrointestinal tract, and can control the metabolism of glucose and fat in the body.
