Drinking certain herbal teas (and also using some of them as a hair and scalp rinse) can in fact let you enjoy a thicker mane. So if you want to get rid of hair loss in a more natural approach, keep on reading this article — below you will come across certain herbal teas that can let you have the tresses of your wildest dreams!


Are you aware that there are drugs approved by the FDA for hair loss? Some of them are applied topically while others are taken orally. But whether you intend to opt for something that you massage on your scalp or flush down your throat, one thing remains true: it’s for certain that there are some side effects to put up with. Some of them may be negligible while others may be adverse and also risky.

Fortunately for you, enjoying traffic-stopping thick hair doesn’t have to be a perilous task — there are herbal teas scientifically-proven to help deal with hair loss. You may be excited to give them a try so that you may be spotted with voluminous hair in no time. So without further ado, here are some of the herbal teas that you may count on:

 

Lavender Tea

When lavender tea is mentioned, a lot of people immediately think about phenomenal all-natural remedy for insomnia because of its ability to loosen tensed muscles and also relax a mind that’s flooded with anxious thoughts.

Sadly, not a lot of people including most especially beauty-conscious ones are aware of the fact that lavender tea is also great for dealing with baldness — it’s for this reason why a lot of personal care products that encourage thicker and longer hair have lavender extract in them.

Rosemary Tea

There’s another herbal tea that’s popular among insomniacs who wish to enjoy a good night’s sleep all-naturally, and that’s none other than rosemary tea. This healthy beverage with a distinct pine-like aroma is also actually very good for alleviating stress and anxiety for its soothing abilities.

According to scientists, rosemary tea can help fend off hair loss because of its ability to encourage optimized circulation to the scalp. Additionally, rosemary tea can help fend off excessive scalp dryness which is something that can impede accelerated hair growth.

Peppermint Tea

During a bout of indigestion, there are a handful of herbal teas that come into the minds of many. One of those that a lot will surely reach for is a cup of peppermint tea that is revered for its ability to put under control all kinds of problems that have something to do with the digestive system.

Are you aware that experts say that peppermint tea is also something that can give you thicker and longer hair? It works because it has the ability to stimulate dormant hair follicles. Whether taken by mouth or applied on the scalp, you will surely enjoy a more head-turning mane if you count on peppermint tea on a regular basis.

Saw Palmetto Tea

In some situations, hormonal imbalance is the one to blame for hair loss. Such can be due to so many different reasons — from menopause, chronic stress, exposure to pollutants in the environment to the existence of certain medical conditions such as problems concerning the thyroid gland.

That is why the intake of saw palmetto tea is commonly recommended if the reason for unwanted hair shedding and also thinning is hormonal imbalance. The said healthy beverage has the ability to restore normal hormone balance within, scientists say.

The Kashmir Monitor

Published

Weight loss is something that we all struggle with. Sometimes we are successful in reducing our weight but more often than not, the number in the weighing scale slowly creeps back up. Most of us have already tried the latest diet trend in the hopes that it will lead us to a better looking us, but then, life happens and we forget that we are on a diet or that we feel frustrated with the lack of results. Still, we keep on finding ways to get rid of the excess pounds that we are carrying. With that being said, it might be a good idea for us to stop for a while and take stock of what personal trainers have got to say about losing weight. Who knows? We might pick up a thing or two about their weight loss tips that we can apply in our day to day lives. Here are some suggestions that you might want to consider.

Stay away from booze and sugar

If you really want to lose weight then ditch the sugar and booze. These two are known to be calorie-laden which is why they contribute to weight gain. If you can’t stay away from drinking alcoholic beverages, you can limit to a glass for girls and two glasses for men. As for the refined sugars, there are natural sweeteners available such as honey and stevia.

 

Don’t go more than 3 hours without eating

Although the exact science for this is still being studied, it appears that eating snacks in between meals can help keep your blood sugar levels steady. This means that your energy level will remain stable throughout the day and less sugar or carb binges which can cause weight gain on your part.

Mix your exercises up

Another tip that personal trainers have given with regards to losing weight is to mix your fitness routine as much as possible. Sticking to the same program for months will cause you to hit a plateau in your progress which can make you feel frustrated with the lack of improvement. A better option would be to mix your exercises so that your muscles will remain guessing as to which muscle group will be tested. The best part is that you are constantly strengthening and conditioning your muscles for a more even looking physique.

Drink plenty of water

Who would have thought that even the simplest act can do your weight loss goal a whole lot of good? Drinking water constantly can help flush the toxins from your body while ensuring that your skin remains properly hydrated. Water can also help improve digestion so that your body will be able to absorb nutrients from the food that you eat better.

These are just a few tips that you might want to consider the next time you are planning on shedding weight. What’s great about these fitness tips is that they are simple enough to follow but will get you amazing results in no time.

Study: Dietary supplements won’t help you live longer

Doctors at Tufts University in Massachusetts, the US, say it’s pretty clear that supplement use has no benefit for the general population and is not a substitute for a healthy balanced diet.

Their research found that vitamins A and K, magnesium, zinc and copper were linked to a lower risk of death from heart disease or stroke — but only when they came from foods, abc7news.com wrote.

Coauthor Fang Fang Zhang, an associate professor of epidemiology at the Tufts University Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, said getting nutrients in the right quantities from food was associated with a longer life.

 

In fact, Zhang said some supplements even appear to have health risks. People who took high doses of calcium supplements had a 53 percent higher risk of dying from cancer than people who were not taking supplements,

However, if you have been diagnosed as deficient in a certain nutrient, don’t stop taking it without talking to your doctor first.

The research team used data from 30,000 US adults who participated in a National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey from 1999 to 2010.

The research was published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

Whitening products may damage teeth:Study

Teeth whitening products – that promise to make your smile brighter – may also be causing tooth damage, a study has found.

Scientists at Stockton University in the US found that hydrogen peroxide, the active ingredient in over-the-counter whitening strips, can damage the protein-rich dentin tissue found beneath the tooth’s protective enamel.

The tooth is made of three layers: the outer tooth enamel, an underlying dentin layer and connective tissue that binds the roots to the gum.

 

Most studies of whitening strips have focused on tooth enamel, which contains very little protein.

The team focused on dentin, which makes up most of the tooth and has high levels of protein, most of which is collagen.

It is well established that hydrogen peroxide can penetrate the enamel and dentin. Previous work by the researchers showed that collagen in the dentin layer decreased when teeth were treated with whitening strips.

“We sought to further characterise what the hydrogen peroxide was doing to collagen. We used entire teeth for the studies and focused on the impact hydrogen peroxide has on the proteins,” said Kelly Keenan, associate professor at Stockton University.

The researchers demonstrated that the major protein in the dentin is converted to smaller fragments when treated with hydrogen peroxide.

In additional experiments, they treated pure collagen with hydrogen peroxide and then analysed the protein using a gel electrophoresis laboratory technique that allows the protein to be visualised.

“Our results showed that treatment with hydrogen peroxide concentrations similar to those found in whitening strips is enough to make the original collagen protein disappear, which is presumably due to the formation of many smaller fragments,” Keenan said in the statement.

The researchers point out that their experiments did not address whether collagen and other proteins in the teeth can be regenerated, so it is unknown if the tooth damage is permanent.

Next, they plan to further characterise the protein fragments released when collagen is treated with hydrogen peroxide and determine if hydrogen peroxide has the same impact on other proteins in the teeth.
