Weird Dumbbell Inventions


Japanese are famous for some weird and unusual inventions. In the Sphere of fitness the japanese designers and creators managed to invent two wacky devices that should apparently help in building muscles. These inventions using dumbbell are quite funny and original.

Dumbbell Phone
The art of unusual Japanese inventions known as Chindogu brings us an attachment for the telephone! If you wish you were building biceps instead of sitting in your cubical, this dull fitness gadget might be the answer to all of your problems. Sure, you'll look like a fool and everyone in the office will make fun of you. But that's not as important as those giant 12-inch guns you can develop every time you pick up the phone. And also we'll even have one of personal fitness trainers call you every hour on the hour. That's eight workouts for every day you are in the office.

Dumbbell Drinker 

Designer Jin Le certainly has a humorous take on things, coming up with the Dumbbell Sports Drink. This plastic bottle might possibly go a long way in helping us keep the environment clean. Once we're done with the contents inside, there is no need to throw this away as you can always expand its use by virtue of filling it up with soil or water. The exceptional shape turns it into an impromptu dumbbell, letting you work out those biceps while you're at work.

Beating Asthma


Asthma partially obstructs the bronchial tubes, making your breathing difficult. The real cause of asthma is still not known. But if you are an asthma sufferer, through natural means, you can significantly reduce the number of asthma attacks you get. A placebo study has shown that asthmatics who consume 1 gram of vitamin C per day had 4 times fewer attacks. When they stopped taking vitamin C, the attacks resumed with the same regularity as before.

Magnesium also works efficiently. According to a study on thirty children suffering from asthma associated with allergies, twenty of them drank a daily quantity of mineral water rich in magnesium, while the others received no magnesium supplement. After three months, the first group had a higher level of magnesium in their blood, and they were able to breathe more easily. So taking vitamin C and magnesium is an excellent way to prevent asthma attacks.

To breathe more easily during an attack, simply drink 2 or 3 cups of strong coffee. By activating blood circulation, it eases respiratory obstruction.

Avoid White Sugar and Fructose


White refined sugar is the primary cause of degenerative disease in our contemporary society. Sugar taken every day in processed foods produces a constantly over-acidic condition in your body, requiring more and more vitamins and minerals from deep in your body attempting to correct the equilibrium.

After years of having this continual, over-acidic condition, as well as vitamin/ mineral depletion, it is highly improbable that some form of degenerative disease will not present itself. During the process of permanent sugar consumption, especially with today’s processed foods, excess sugar is stored in the liver in the form of glucose until the complete capacity of the liver to do so is reached.

White Sugar

During this process, the liver becomes rather enlarged, and excess glucose is returned to the blood in the form of fatty acids, which are stored in the dormant muscular areas of the body. This is everywhere that people gain weight (stomach, buttocks, breasts, thighs, etc).

When these areas have been filled to capacity, the fatty acids are then sent to organs (heart, kidneys, etc), which causes them to start a procedure of degeneration. Abnormal blood pressure begins to occur, the brain functions are affected, the structural value of the cellular structures within the blood decline, an overabundance of white cells occurs, formation of new tissue declines, and the immune system is affected.

Why Do We Need Pyridoxine?


Pyridoxine

According to the several researches we need pyridoxine as a coenzyme in the transamination process, for the decarboxylation and recemization of amino acids, and as the indispensable coenzyme for glycogen phosphorylase. We need pyridoxine to turn the proteins you eat into the proteins our body needs and we need it to convert carbohydrates from the form you accumulate them in into the form you can use for energy. What sort of proteins does our body need? For starters, hemoglobin—the element that carries oxygen in your red blood cells. Pyridoxine is needed to make lots of other proteins including hormones, neurotransmitters, and enzymes. You also need it to make prostaglandins, hormone-like substances that regulate things like your blood pressure. Pyridoxine is essential for converting the foods you eat into carbohydrates or fat your body can store—and for the stored forms into forms you can use when you need extra energy.

Normal amounts of pyridoxine keep your body working normally. What do extra amounts of pyridoxine do? A lot, especially for our heart and immune system, and for asthma and diabetes.We need to be cautious here, though—pyridoxine can be toxic in very large doses.

Methods to Avoid Catching Colds


As much as possible, avoid coming into close contact with infected persons, especially if they cough or sneeze. A person with a cold is very contagious: a person fills the air with fine particles of saliva or mucous which transport the virus microbe. Even if the person is cautious to wipe his nose with tissue or a handkerchief, the microbes will be transported to his hands.

And studies have shown that these viruses are transmitted through hand contact. So if you have to shake hands with somebody who has a cold, you would better wash soon after It is useless to take antibiotics: they have no effect on viruses.
