Home remedies to keep you super fit



18 Jul 2013 (Mumbai Mirror ): Experts share home remedies that help them stay fit


Seafood for ageless skin

Eating fish three times a week cuts wrinkling and sagging by 30 per cent, as seafood is rich in protein, minerals and omega-3 fats — nutrients that nourish the collagen and muscles that keep skin smooth. Salmon, for one, is also rich in astaxanthin — an antioxidant that reduces fine lines and wrinkling.


Green tea to beat stress

Green tea has compounds that help your brain use blood sugar for fuel and stimulate the production of energising hormones called endorphins. So the next time you’re feeling sapped of energy, docs say, sip on green tea.


Walnuts for a strong heart

Cardiologists recommend eating five to six walnuts daily to cut your risk of a heart attack by half and add almost three healthy years to your life. Turns out these crunchy treats are one of the richest natural sources of artery-healing monounsaturated fats.


Turmeric for good memory

Adding turmeric to your diet could sharpen your memory by at least 30 per cent, say experts. This happens because of turmeric’s active ingredient — curcumin — is one of the most powerful brain-nourishing antioxidants ever discovered.


Quell stress with breathing

Take to belly breathing to ease stress and anxiety. Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose for a count of six, allowing your belly to relax and expand as you do. Hold for a count of four, then slowly exhale through your mouth for another count of seven. Repeat until you feel fine.


Nix pains with naps

Have frequent headaches, backaches, sore joints or other pain problems? Don’t worry, just go off to sleep. Studies suggest getting a little more snooze could cut your discomfort by half within one month. Sleep boosts your production of growth hormones, which reduce inflammation and speed healing of damaged tissues.


Cinnamon to maintain BP

According to researchers, adding 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to your daily diet could improve your blood sugar control by 29 per cent or more — it slows carb absorption in your small intestines.


Veggies strengthens immunity

Eat plenty of colourful veggies to prevent illness. Carrots, peppers, and okra are great for boosting immunity. The more colourful the better. It’s what’s in the plant’s pigment that keep the lining of your respiratory tract healthy so viruses can’t get a foothold and increase the production of disease-fighting immune cells.


Honey to kill virus
