Consume Foods To Improve Thyroid Health
The following are some food you can use for improving thyroids health

1. Coconut Oil

It is a known fact that these oils are not healthy for people and unsaturated fats present in oils slow down the response of tissues to those hormones that are produced by the thyroid gland. When you are cooking your meals, it is very important for you to choose the oils you need for frying wisely. Coconut oil is an oil that regulates the metabolic rate. When you consume coconut oil, the thyroid gland can perform better. For good thyroid health, you should swallow two tablespoons of organic coconut oil for salads and cooking.

2. Salt With Iodine

For proper functioning of the thyroid gland, you should consume salt that is iodized. Your thyroid gland needs iodine to make thyroid hormones. These hormones controls your body’s growth and also metabolism. They are extremely important in babies, because they are key part of development of brain.Babies who does not have enough iodine suffers from iodine deficiency disorders which can even lead to cretinism. Pregnant women, breastfeeding women and young kids must take enough iodine.

Iodine deficiency has also very bad effect on adults. It causes swelling thyorid gland (known as goitre) or causes underactive thyroid gland that has effects such as depression, constipation, dry skin, joint paint or weight gain.

There are approximately one fourth of the population in the USA that do not have iodine in their bodies. In order for you to combat this deficiency you should substitute regular salt with iodized salt. This is really very important and it is surprising that in 21st century there are still people who does not know that.

3. Foods dense with fiber

You will find that most people that have thyroid issues tend to suffer from constipation. This often enhances the weight of the body and in such cases it is very important for you to eat food that is rich in fiber. There are high fiber fruits, vegetables, cabbage, carrot, spinach, broccoli, beans and more. There are fiber rich fruits like apples, bananas, prunes, orange, guava and berries. Other fibre rich sources are bread, bran cereals, almonds, peanuts and cashew nuts.

4. Soy

is also helpful for the thyroid. It actually plays two roles. It stops the absorption of thyroid hormones and acts like a goitrogen. However, there is a word of caution you should note when you are consuming soy. You should not over consume soy. This means you should keep a check on consuming excessive soy bars, powders, shakes and soy bars. If you wish to consume soy for your health, you must consult a medical professional who is well versed in the subject especially if you are suffering from hyperthyroidism.

What to avoid when you suffer from thyroid problems?

When you are suffering from thyroid complications, it is very important for you to prevent the intake of substances and drinks that will aggravate the issue. Coffee and orange juice with calcium must be avoided at all costs. These substances interfere with the absorption of medicines that you take for thyroid. Even if you get the urge, you should wait for at least three to four hours before you take your medicine for thyroid. The same also goes for calcium supplements.

10 Best Natural Aphrodisiacs

What exactly is aphrodisiac? If you look in dicitionary you will find that an aphrodisiac (which is named after Greek goddess Aphrodite) is any  drink, food  or substance that after consuming will increase your sexual desire. There is not only one way how aphrodisiacs achieve this goal, they can work in many ways and can be combined for the best results.

Aphrodisiacs can increase your sexual desire for example by increasing your blood flow, reducing stress or they can even make your neurotransmitters work better. All these things can have huge positive inpact on your sexual life.

1. Red Wine

I think that probably almost everyone of us has experienced how alcohol generally increases your sexual desire, but when there is too much of it, it is also (mostly for men) a sexual killer. In moderation every alcohol has positive effect, but there are some which are simply better than others and winner is definetely red wine.  Red wine will relax you, also it iwill increase your blood flow so all the important parts will have enough of it and it will also lower your inhibitions.

2. Asparagus

This vegetable increases blood circulation in the genitourinary system which should lead to increased sexual desire and generaly just o better sex experience.

3. Ginger

I’m sure you did not expect this one, right? Well, here it is. Ginger is spice that increases your blood circulation and body temperature a little which leads to increased sex desire and makes it all more pleasureable.

4. Oysters

Oyesters are very famous natural aphrodisiac, but why? Oysters are full of  zinc, which significantly increases sperm and testosterone production, and also sexual desire in men. Oysters has also plenty of omega-3, which helps to fight  depression and generaly just makes you feel better.

5. Celery

For long time people are arguing if celery really has aphrodisiacal abilities or not, but late scientific studies shows that it really might have some! Celery contains androsterone, which is hormone that is naturally produced by men which stimulates sexual arousal in females. It is odorless hormone found in male sweat and it is very very strong aphrodisiac, so guys give it a try.

6.Chocolate

Some people calls chococlate king of natural aphrodisiacs and it definetely has some very positive effect on sexual life, because of various compounds it has.  One of them is anandamide, psychoactive chemical that makes you feel good. It also contains phenylethylamine (PEA) which is sometimes called “chemical of love”. It releases dopamine and dopamine is the “drug” inside our body that makes us feel good (peak of dopamine release is during orgasm). Some high quality chococlate is always good idea before sex.

Chocolate also contains caffeine, which surely can only help if you feel tired and “not in the mood”.

Real quality chocolate must have high percentage of cocoa, this one is the best.

7. Pomegranate Juice

Pomegranate juice has been lately big hit among fans of natural treatment of various diseases and in one of the latest studies of this fruit has been confirmed its great aphrodisiacal effects. In this study, conducted at Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, there was involeved 58 persons in age between 21 and 64 years. They used pomegranate juice just for 14 days and even after this short period of time, effects were really great.

Among 58 people who drank pomegranate juice every day, testosterone levels were increased between 16 and 30 percent! These people also said that they have less negative emotions. Feeling good and have high level of testosterone? that can definetely kick start your sex life!

8. Garlic

Eating raw garlic seems like something what will definetely not help you to end up in bed with someone, but there are of course other options. There are various garlic tabs which are manufactured in special way so they dissolve in your gut, so there will be no bad breath, but you will still get the effects from it. Garlic is full of allicin, which increases blood flow and good blood flow means better erection to men and more enjoyable sex to women.

9. Peppers

Peppers contains capsaicin which helps to release endorphins, our own “feel good drugs”. That is not the only reason why peppers are good for your sex life. Peppers also contains compounds that will make your nerve endings more sensitive and will increase your blood flow. Sensitive nerves and blood in the parts of your boody that are important during sex? I’m sure you already know where this leads to!

10. Ginseng

The last the best? This time it might really be truth, because Ginseng (Panax ginsengs) is one of few natural aphrodisiacs which work directly as aphrodisiacal drug and has been scientificaly proven as aphrodisiac. For example in year 2002, studies that was conducted in the Illinois University School of Medicine confirmed Ginseng’s sexual effects by demonstrating that it boosted the libido and performance of laboratory rats. It works similar to famous V,  by relaxing muscles and improving blood flow to the genitals. There were several human trials that confirmed its efficience in treating erectile dysfunction. Ginseng also improves sexual desire and arousal in both sexes.

 

11. Saffron

Saffron is a spice which is  derived from the flower known as Crocus sativus. Scientists conducted some research on this and found out that Saffron extract increased rat erection frequency. It has not been so efficience in human males, but showed some effects and because it has shown zero side effects it is definetely one of the most interesting natural aphrodisiacs.


Both Saffron and Ginseng has been confirmed by scientists as the best natural aphrodisiacs.

 

 

 

Five Simple Steps That Will Help You Lose Weight

five steps to lose weight

Today we have here topic, that is something what so many people asks for. There thousands and maybe even millions sites and books about this topic, so because of such huge amount of information people are getting lost and think that they will never know enough to really lose weight. I’m really tired with this so I have created this short article with just few points that will help anyone lose weight, because simple truth about losing weight is that IT IS SIMPLE. In fact you need only one thing and that is strong will, if you don’t have it, stop reading right now, because this article is not for you and it will not help you in any way. Without strong will you will never have the body you want, you will also never have the job you want, the person you want… the life you want. Will is everything, if you think you have it, then continue reading.

I know that weight lost is something what might seem very complicated and you can write whole book about it, but that is what I hate about it. There is just too much info for one person to fully understand, but in fact you don’t need so much info to lose weight, or more precisely, to form your body. I could write extremely long article about this, but then you would not remember anything, I will give you just few extremely important, easy to remember information, that will not make slim and sexy over night, but if you will remember them and will behave according to them, it will help you every day in your fight to the end of your life. Don’t worry, there will only be really few easy to remember points.

Many people think that if you exercise hard enough, run, walk or ride on bike long distances or workout every day that you will have the body you want. Well, that is just not true. Few days ago I’ve read really very interesting opinion at one fitness web and I’ve instantly realized that it is absolutely true. It is something what you should remember for whole your life and it will help you with your efforts to have body you want:

Beautiful body is created by 70% in the kitchen and by 30% at the gym.

This piece of info seems so simple, but it is in fact so important! It is something you just cannot forget, or ignore, this is absolute basic. If you will not behave according to this, you will never achieve your goal.

1. Eat differently

First thing you need to do is to change the structure of your diet by eating less carbohydrates and more proteins. It means to eat less bread, potatoes, pasta, sugars and sweets and more lean meat, curd. eggs, tuna and everything with lot of proteins. You should also eat lots of vegetables, you can eat a huge amount of vegetables without gaining any fat, because it is almost impossible for human body to create fat from vegetables. In fact, more vegetables you will eat, more fat you will lose, because eating vegetables a lot and many times a day will start your metabolism and will keep it running and burning energy without gaining any fan from these vegetables. They simply have very low energy human body can use.

 

2. Move

 Maximize your movement every day and enjoy it. If you hate movement and sport, you will never look as you would like to. You really need to love movement, find some sport or activity to burn calories which you like. In long-term, this point is almost as important as the first point, because if you hate something you will never do it as much as you probably need to and because of that, you will never achieve your goals.

 

3. Use less salt

Salt has the ability to retain water in your body and thanks to all the water in your body you look even more fat than you actually are.

4. Stop drinking sweet drinks

 It is now quite well known fact that people in USA are fat not because they eat too much hamburgers, but because they drink Coca-Cola. It is true. Check out this video where you can see how much sugar there is in just one can of Coca-Cola and sugar is the worst thing for your weight and health! If you completely stop to drink all these Coca Cola, Fanta, Sprite, Dr. Pepper, sweet fruit juices and just all sweet drinks you will destroy very simply one huge source that is literally destroying your body and giving you lot of weight every day. I think this is the most easy step, anyone can live without these.

If you drink coffee, then definitely don’t stop with that! Coffee in fact helps to burn fats, but don’t use sugar in coffee, much better is Stevia Sweet. It is plant from South America that is extremely sweet and has only positive effects on your whole body, from your teeth to your weight. This is my favorite Stevia, it is in tabs and one tab equals one table-spoon of sugar, (so it is very easy to use):

 Only you really know if you have don everything you could to achieve your goal. When you are running, working out or doing any other sport to form your body you need to realize that it does not matter how hard are you training at the moment, how many calories are you burning or how silly you look while exercising, because you are still above those millions of people who are sitting at their couch, doing nothing and gaining fat.

The hardest part of any training is in fact the part BEFORE training. In moment you take first step, you pick up dumbbell for the first time, you do first push up or anything else… in that moment you are the winner and the hardest part is already behind you. If you stop lying to yourself and if you will stop trying to find excuses why you cannot do it, then you will be very surprised how fast your body will be changing. Your body will change much faster than you would ever expected, in just few weeks or months you can change extremely.

Ok, that’s it, as I promised, only five simple steps that will help you on your way to better and more sexy body.

Always remember that you are not doing it for other people, you are not doing it for your partner, you are doing it for yourself. It is you who will feel better, who will gain self-confidence and who will be more healthy. All these things will then have further positive impacts to many other areas of your life. I think it is worth it.
