Pare Natural Medicine Diabetes Web Admin RSA

Pare, a bitter vegetable this one does save a surprise, did you know that this one vegetable can lower your blood sugar?

Not many know that pare can be for diabetics, a study from the Journal of Ethnopharmacology states that both fresh and dried peppers in the amount of 1.5 ounces - 3 ounces can make blood sugar levels fall by as much as 48%, making glucose tolerance improved without any increase in insulin, as well as improving fasting blood sugar levels in diabetics. Indeed this is very good for diabetics but be careful in using it if your blood sugar level is normal.

The composition of pare is very diverse, bitter taste of pare which is characteristic due to the cucurbitacins content. Among these compositions there is Charantin which is a primary ingredient in reducing blood sugar regulation. Charantin makes a reaction of decreased blood sugar (hypoglycemic). Pare also contains a peptide that resembles insulin properties, one of which is polypeptide P and alkaloids. Other ingredients in pare also participate in the effects of changes in blood sugar. In experimental studies conducted on humans, pare showed significant changes in blood sugar control after taking it and producing a blood sugar drop effect.

One method to use bitter melon is to make small pare juice and make as much as 50ml pare (1.5 ounces) to 100ml (about 3 ounces) and then divided into 2 or 3 doses a day. Keep in mind this pare juice is very bitter.

Although bitter melon is good for lowering blood sugar, but it should be noted especially if you are a diabetic who uses drugs to control your blood sugar levels. Do not forget to monitor your blood sugar levels if you decide to use pare as an additional blood sugar controller. If you are on medication with sugar medication you should consult your doctor before you use bitter melon with your medicine because pare can cause your blood sugar levels to drop dramatically when overused.

Puree Skin and Kept Healthy Web Admin RSA

Melon fruit that has high economic value, has significance for health. Nutrients that they contain, good for the skin, eyes, nerves, and kidneys, and able to ward off cancer.

Levels of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) per 100 grams of melon about 34 mg. Vitamin C can be relied upon as an effective antioxidant to ward off free radicals. Oxidants (free radicals) are harmful substances that can attack the body's cells.

The function of vitamin C is also related to collagen. Collagen is a protein compound that affects the integrity of cell structures in all connective tissues, such as skin. The presence of collagen can accelerate wound healing and maintain skin firmness.

Red and orange melons contain carotenoid compounds that can protect body cells from free radicals and can also be converted into vitamin A. Vitamin A is important to maintain the epidermis in the skin to stay healthy. If enough vitamin A is available, the skin becomes soft and moist. Often eat melon, the skin will not be rough and dry.

High levels of carotenoids can boost immunity, thus lowering the risk of cancer. Carotenoids with vitamin E and C act as antioxidants to prevent lung cancer.

Melon is also a source of vitamin B. Vitamin B1 plays a role in the metabolism of carbohydrates to produce energy optimally. Melon is also rich in vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and niacin that plays a role to maintain healthy skin, eyes, and nerves. While niacin prevents indigestion.

Melons are also rich in minerals. Its calcium helps prevent blood clots, minerals remove acidity and cure constipation. Melon water content can reach 95 percent, so it gives a soothing effect. Therefore, the melon can relieve deep heat and cleanse the kidneys from the rest of the metabolism.

Water serves as a solvent, part of a lubricant, chemical reagents, helps regulate body temperature, and maintains body shape and shape. Melon has a very good diuretic power, so it can prevent kidney disease.

Human Relations Web Admin RSA

We are all woven into the great human network, and whatever we can do to benefit and lift others will be reflected in the blessings we receive. The law of interdependence applies to all community groups.

In God's plan man has been made mutual need each other. If everyone is doing all they can to help those who need help, the love and sympathy of those who are not selfish, how much fun work has been done. God has entrusted the talents to everyone. These talents should be used to help others walk the narrow path. In this work one is connected with another, and everyone is united in God. It is only by unselfish service that we may increase and increase our talents.

Helping others can also help themselves. Many people are in obscurity. They have lost their way. They do not know which direction to go. Let those who are confused search for others who are in confusion and say to them the words of hope and encouragement. As they begin to do this work, the light of heaven will reveal to them the path they must follow. By their comforting words to those who suffer, they too will be comforted. By helping others, they themselves will be helped out of their troubles. Joy replaces a place of sadness and melancholy. A heart filled with the Spirit of God radiates warmth to our fellow human beings. All such people are no longer in darkness, because the "darkness" is like the midday sun.

Food & Mind Web Admin RSA

In relation to Peter's command that we add "to self-control of perseverance." I refer to the blessings of health reform, and the benefits to be gained by the use of the right combination of healthy, healthful foods. the close connection between eating and drinking to the state of one's mind and character is very clear. we are unable to develop good character through wrong habits of life.

Appetite indulgence is a major cause of physical, mental weakness and the basis of apparent weakness everywhere. through the devil's appetite controls the mind and the whole body. Thousands of people who should be allowed to live have entered the grave, and suffered physical, mental and moral damage because they sacrificed all their strength to the indulgence of appetite.

The digestive tools have an important part in the happiness of our lives. God has given us intelligence that we know what we should use as food. Will not we, as healthy men and women, study whether the food we eat is appropriate or does it cause trouble? people who have an acidic stomach very often have an acidic character. Things seem to contradict them, and they tend to get irritable and anxious. If we want peace between us, we must put more attention than we do to calm our stomach.

The brain is the organ and tool or instrument of the mind, and that controls the whole body. so that other parts of the body structure healthy, the brain must be healthy. And for a healthy brain, the blood should be pure clean. if by the right habits of eating and drinking the blood kept pure clean, then the brain will be naturally fed.
