How To Stop the Heartburn

Heartburn
Heartburn typically results from excess acidity in the stomach or from improper operation of your digestive system. At the point where the esophagus and stomach join, a special muscle opens and closes the esophagus. When we swallow food this muscle relaxes to let the food pass into the stomach and after that it closes again. But it can happen that the muscle malfunctions. The components of the stomach then rise again up the esophagus, irritating the area. And this results in the infamous feeling of heartburn.

In order to stop it avoid acidic foods (lemons, etc.), alcohol, fat or fried food, food that is overcooked, coffee, juice, tomato base products and chocolate. But don’t deny yourself too much. You have to notice which foods bring on heartburn and avoid them. Also, don’t go to sleep right after the meal and don’t smoke, especially after meals.

Spot Reduction


Fat loss

Spot reduction is the term that is used to explain the process of losing fat in a focused area on the body. The lower back and rear of the thighs are two of the most troubled areas that spot reduction is usually attempted for. It is important to know that a total spot reduction is nor possible. Fat is a source of energy that is stored according to genetics, hormones, sex, body fat levels and age. These factors establish where you will deposit fat stores and how easily. These factors also determine where you will burn off the fat and how much effort it will take not any mythical formula for spot reduction. This is why men and women have different fat deposit patterns. Typically men tend to store more fat around the waist and women on the lower thighs.

When body fat percentage levels are dropped it is as a result of your body as a whole needs energy. Exercising a certain body part does not burn fat in the area being exercised but rather uses the most proficient means your body can supply for energy. If you have properly manipulated your diet and exercises routine, fat can be used for energy instead of glucose.

Sadly the rule of thumb is the most troubled fatty areas are the last to go. So if you are troubled with a cellulite on the back of your thighs you will most likely have to radically reduce your body fat levels to visibly affect the problem area.

Melatonin and Sleep

Melatonin
Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland and has an significant role in circadian rhythms. The daily rhythm of melatonin secretion is controlled by a built-in, free-running pacemaker, the suprachiasmatic nucleus , and is synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan. Melatonin synthesis is controlled by contact with cycles of light and dark, and occurs independently of sleep.

Melatonin promotes sleep and its secretion increases when takes place the onset of darkness, helping to keep us asleep at night. Melatonin production usually peaks between midnight and 2am, then starts to fall and is low during the day. It also helps decrease core body temperature, which helps induce sleep. However, sleep is possible even when melatonin levels are low. People who have their pineal gland removed have only negligible disruption in sleep.


Laboratory experiments have shown that melatonin has antioxidant effects and suppresses the growth of some cancer cells. Laboratory researches also show it has anti-inflammatory effects. When melatonin is administered as a drug it has been proved to decrease levels of the female hormones progesterone and estradiol. It also enhances the secretion of prolactin (hormone produced by the pituitary gland). Melatonin may decrease the sensitivity of the body to insulin, which can raise blood sugar levels.

Treating Insect Bites


Insect Bite

You don’t have to sit back and just passively put up with insects, particularly those that like to bite like mosquitoes or wasps. Eat asparagus and your sweat will expand an odor that repels insects. Or apply a piece of lemon oil to your skin.If you are bitten, there are natural substances to soothe the irritation. Aloe vera has astonishing powers of soothing skin disorders. It is available in forms for both internal and external application in most health and beauty stores.

If you have one of these remarkable plants growing at home, cut the tip off one of the leaves. Put the pulp and juice to the itching or swollen area. Lightly boiled cabbage or leek makes an excellent analgesic poultice. Of course, if you are hiking in the woods, you might have a little problem finding cabbage. Plantain is another plant that also works well. Cut it and rub it to get to the juice then apply it to the harmed area.

Adjust Your Training Weights

Weight Training
We all know that heavier weight means bigger muscles. But many times it is not true. This only works as long as you are working the intended muscles. This most common delusion is caused by what training with the heaviest weights possible really means. It does not mean the heaviest weight you can move throughout the exercise sloppily at any cost. It means the heaviest weight you can move with the intended muscle group with slow deliberate exercise. Heavier weight increases the chances of damage as well.

So train with the heaviest weights you can but imagine your worst critic is present watching you. Make sure this critic won’t have not one irritating comment to you when you are at the end your set. Train so that you have no doubt in your mind there is not one surrender in your form as a result of using too heavy of weights.

Sesame Oil


Sesame Oil

Sesame oil comes from an annual herb (Sesamum indicum). The plant is a warm weather plant that grows from the tropics to warm temperate regions. The major producing countries are China, India, Sudan, and Mexico. The seed is 40 to 60 percent oil and is used directly for food when it is cold pressed. The oil is also recovered by mixed expeller and solvent extraction. Sesame paste is a famous food in the lands along the eastern Mediterranean.

Sesame oil has very good oxidative constancy, which is thought to be related to sesamin or another unknown antioxidant in the native oil. When sesame oil is added to other oils for use in frying, the oxidative actions of the recipient oil are improved. The oil is pale yellow and without odor after refining, but also is sold in a darker version for use in Asian cooking.

The fatty acid composition has some similarities to peanut oil in that the levels of oleic acid and linoleic acid are quite similar. Typical composition of sesame oil is 10 percent palmitic acid, 5 percent stearic acid, 41 percent oleic acid, and 43 percent linoleic acid. Typical tocopherol values are 136 mg/kg a-tocopherol and 290 mg/kg ү- tocopherol for a total of 426 mg/kg.

Loosing the Man Boobs


Losing away your man boobs doesn't come easy. It requires lots of hard work and an adequate special training regime. Forget about doing hundreds of press-ups, bench presses or crossovers. They're virtually useless when it comes to shifting the fat from your chest. And a few short cardio sessions each week isn't going to be enough, either. A full-body training program that includes both cardiovascular and resistance exercises will deliver better and quicker results.

To lose the man boobs, eating right and exercising regularly needs to become a life habit. f your schedule does not have any holes, make some. Get out of bed earlier. Turn off the TV. Stop wasting time on social networks. Train hard, be consistent and the results will come. To the loss, aim for 40-45 minutes of high-intensity cardio at least three times a week and merge this with two or three bouts of resistance exercise, such as weight training or a body-weight circuit.

Although exercises such as the bar-bell bench press, weighted press-up and dumb-bell single-arm bench press should form part of your training routine, it's essential not to get carried away with too many chest-specific exercises. Working the muscles in your back, too, is key; if you neglect them you'll create a muscular imbalance that will unavoidably lead to injury. Make sure you do just as many pulling movements. Follow these simple rules and stick to a good diet and you'll have pectorals to admire.
