Drinking red wine can ward-off cholesterol build-up resulting from eating red meat, say scientists. Harmful compounds from red meat form in the bloodstream, creating "bad" cholesterol that damages blood vessels and heightens cardiac risks. The researchers showed, however, that anti-oxidants in the wine known as polyphenols prevented these compounds from being absorbed into the bloodstream where they can cause harm, the "Journal of Functional Foods" reports. Ron Kohen, professor from the Institute of Drug Research at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, said this may help to explain why red wine has frequently been found to reduce the risk of heart disease, according to the "Telegraph". "Meat is rich in polyunsaturated fat and cholesterol. Our results could provide an explanation for the association between frequent meat consumption and increased risk in developing cardiovascular diseases. Including polyphenol rich products as an integral part of the meal significantly diminish these harmful effects," said Kohen. Over four days, the researchers fed a group of healthy volunteers a series of meals of dark turkey cutlets and asked them to avoid other meats and fish. A smaller group of the same individuals then repeated the four-day diet, accompanying each cutlet with the equivalent of a glass of red wine. The research showed that when the volunteers ate the meat alone, they had increased levels of a compound known as malondialdehyde in their bloodstream. They also showed greater levels of cholesterol that had been modified by malondialdehyde in their blood.
When they had the cutlets with red wine, however, the levels of modified cholesterol did not change and even fell in some cases.
Not in the morning. A 2011 Journal of the American Dietetic Association study found that dieters who didn’t snack between breakfast and lunch lost nearly 5 percent more weight (an average of 7 1/2 more pounds) over a year than morning snackers. Since breakfast and lunch can be only a few hours apart, researchers suspect that most a.m. snacks are fueled out of habit rather than hunger—and generally amount to mindless eating.
A smarter strategy: Skip the morning snack, unless you have to go more than four hours until lunch. Choose a snack that’s satisfying: one that includes protein, fiber-rich carbs and a little fat, such as an apple with peanut or almond butter or a corn tortilla with a slice of low-fat cheese.
One of my favorite DIY skin masks is made using benefit-rich turmeric. Turmeric has been all the craze for dietary reasons but did you also know that it can also help your skin?
Turmeric, traditionally known as Indian saffron because of its deep yellow-orange color, has been used throughout history as a condiment and textile dye. Turmeric also provides amazing healing benefits, not just inside the body, but for your skin. Indian brides have long used turmeric body scrubs and face masks to purify and cleanse their bodies as well as provide a healthy glow by brightening their skin right before their weddings.
Turmeric, a herb used as a main ingredient in curry, can benefit your skin as a home remedy for acne, eczema, psoriasis, dry skin, wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes. It also reduces skin inflammation due to being high in antioxidants and slows down cell damage. As well, it can help reduce pigmentation that evens out skin tone.
What makes turmeric work so well? Turmeric has shown significant anti-inflammatory activity because of its volatile oil and its yellow or orange pigment, which is called curcumin. Curcumin, a phytonutrient, contains anti-inflammatory abilities that have been shown to be comparable to many drugs on the market today, but unlike drugs, curcumin produces no toxicity.
A turmeric face mask is an excellent exfoliating agent and very easy to make right at home with just a few ingredients. However, it is important to note that some people have reported allergic reactions to turmeric after skin exposure. I recommend testing on a small area of your skin first. You may need to use a mild soap with water to remove the yellow stain that may occur. Be careful not to get it on your clothing as well, since it may stain.
With consistency, this turmeric face mask will give you glowing skin!
Turmeric Face Mask for Glowing Skin
Total Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 1–2 applications
½ teaspoon turmeric powder
½ teaspoon organic apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon of organic, raw, local honey
½ teaspoon milk or yogurt
[optional] 1 drop lemon essential oil or fresh lemon juice for additional skin brightening
Wash face and hands first to remove impurities and any make-up.
In a small bowl or jar, mix the turmeric powder with the honey, apple cider vinegar, milk or yogurt and optional lemon oil. Try to get a consistency that will stick to your face. Be careful not to make it too thin as it may drip.
Apply the mask carefully avoiding your eyes.
Allow the mask sit on your face for 15–20 minutes then rinse with warm water.
If you have any leftover, you can cover and leave in the fridge for your next application.

Acai bowls have been blowing up Instagram feeds for years now, and with good reason. Not only do they look good, they taste amazing—all while giving you a serious dose of produce, plus whatever healthy add-ons you put on top. Right? Actually, while acai bowls are good for you in theory, experts point out that there are a lot of potential pitfalls with the dish, especially if you'd like to lose weight .
Before we get to that, it's important to keep in mind that health and weight loss look different for every person. If you want to lose weight, what works for you might not work for others, and vice versa. And before making any changes, consider whether they're helping or harming your health and happiness. For example, if you have a history of disordered eating , you should talk to your doctor before starting a new eating plan, especially one geared for weight loss. Even if you don't have that history, setting healthy, realistic goals and expectations is essential. Weight loss is about a lot more than how you prep meals like acai bowls. You've also got to think about whether you’re getting good rest and trying to keep your stress levels down, along with factors outside of your control, like health conditions and hormones. It's most important to stay in tune with your body and treat yourself with as much kindness as possible.
Now, when it comes to acai bowls, there are a few key things to know. “Acai is great, but I find that acai bowls have a health halo among my clients,” Jessica Cording , a New York-based R.D., tells SELF. “They eat a bowl in the morning and feel like they’re set for the day, healthy eating-wise.”
The acai puree packets that are used to make the bowls aren’t really an issue—a 100 gram packet of Sambazon puree contains just 70 calories, 5 grams of fat, and no sugar. But the things that are added to make a bowl (often almond milk, berries, and bananas) add up calorie-wise, mostly from sugar, Cording says.
The sugar load is an issue for another reason, too. “Even though it's the naturally present sugar in the fruit, it's still a lot for the body to handle in one sitting, especially if there's minimal protein or fat to buffer the breakdown of that sugar,” Cording says. As a result, your blood sugar can spike and then plummet, leaving you feeling hungry not long after you have a bowl.
That said, you don’t need to swear off acai bowls—experts say you should just be smart about how you have them. Try these tricks for a healthier bowl:
1. First of all, make them yourself.
It’s easier than you think to make an acai bowl at home. And, when you do, you can control what—and how much of each ingredient—goes into it, Cording says. (You can buy frozen acai puree packets online or at your local health food store.)
2. Watch your bowl size.
Most of the recipes you'll find make a massive bowl, so you can often halve the ingredients list for a better serving size. “Acai bowls can be such a great whole-food choice for a meal or snack, but the typical portion size is way over the recommended 1 cup serving for most fruits, especially since it's mostly blended, contributing too much sugar at one time inside your body,” Beth Warren, R.D.N., founder of Beth Warren Nutrition and author of Living a Real Life With Real Food , tells SELF.
3. Curb your toppings and sweeteners.
Treats like granola, nuts, and coconut are delicious, but they’re also high in calories . That’s why Cording recommends you limit yourself to one or two toppings and keep tabs on how much you add of each. Warren also says it's a good idea to take a pass on added sweeteners, like honey, since you already get so much natural sugar from the fruits.
4. Load up on protein.
A protein source, like natural peanut butter or chia seeds, can help lower the glycemic load of the bowl and help stabilize your blood sugar, Warren says. With a little extra protein, you’ll likely feel fuller longer and won’t experience a blood-sugar crash afterwards that can leave you feeling irritable and hungry.
5. Throw some greens into the mix.
To balance out some of the sugar, try blending greens like spinach and kale with the acai puree. Then you can put fruit you'd otherwise blend on top so you can better gauge your portions, Warren says.
Overall, experts are pro-acai bowls when they’re done right. “Acai bowls are a great whole food choice for meal or snack as long as you are mindful about portion sizes and added ingredients,” says Warren.

Makes about 10 ounces Preparation time about 10 minutes
2 tablespoons shea butter
2 tablespoons jojoba oil or almond oil
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1/4 cup Castile soap
1 tablespoon vegetable glycerin
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/4 cup warm water distilled water
12 drops orange essential oil
You may be wondering what to look for in a shower gel. If you use a store-bought product, choose a shower gel that is mild and make sure it doesn’t contain lye. Using cool-to-warm water, instead of hot water, can help avoid dry skin. Apply a moisturizer right away, such as my body butter, or you can even use almond oil or olive oil as a moisturizer. Putting it on the skin while damp helps retain moisture. Keep in mind that some shower gels contain petroleum and other chemical-based ingredients such as added fragrance. If you notice your skin getting dry, red, itchy or flaky, consider a different shower gel; however, I suggest making your own so that you can know exactly what is going into your shower gel. It’s easy to do. (1, 2)
To make my DIY shower gel, place the shea butter in a small pan and melt on low heat. Add the jojoba oil, almond oil and coconut oil. Shea butter is an amazing ingredient given its vitamin A contents. It is very moisturizing, too. Jojoba oil offers great skin-healing benefits and is helpful in reducing acne as well as psoriasis. For a vitamin E boost — something your skin craves — almond oil is the way to go. And, we know that coconut oil is a great moisturizer that also fights off bacteria.
Now, pour the oil and shea butter mixture into a medium-sized bowl and sprinkle the xanthan gum into the bowl allowing it to sit for about a minute. You may be wondering just what this ingredient is. Xanthan gum is a thickening agent. While it is not a good idea to eat too much of it, it can be helpful on the skin because it may help fight cancer. Using an the immersion blender on pulse, dissolve the gum into the shea butter and oil blend. Do this for one to two minutes.
Next, add the castile soap, vegetable glycerine and warm water. Castile soap is a favorite of mine because it is a natural, vegetable-based soap. Vegetable glycerin is useful because it is a plant-based humectant, meaning it provides moisture to the skin. Blend again for about two minutes. At this point, it will begin to look like a creamy lotion. That’s what you want! (3)
Lastly, add the orange essential oil. Sweet orange essential oil has a delightful citrus scent, and it also kills bacteria while reducing anxiety. Pour the shower gel into a soap dispenser. You may want to shake it before use as it could separate just a bit. Use within a few weeks since it does not contain any preservatives.

Small tweaks in diet can help you lose weight naturally. If you continue these habits for a long-term you would get lasting results. Actually, losing weight is a long-term goal that needs your dedication and efforts. However, making changes in an Indian diet plan to lose weight in 10 days is possible following certain rituals of diet.
Let us have a quick look at an easy-to-follow Indian diet plan to lose weight in 10 days and a few simple rules.
What Process Your Body Undergoes While Losing Weight:
Prior to discussing how you would lose weight naturally without efforts you need to know the process that your body undergoes while losing weight. Our diet comprises of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. Calories are the unit which is used to measure the potential energy in the food we take. Our body is capable of turning the usable energy through a number of chemical processes.
If you use more calories or energy then you take in your body starts using the stored fat and hence adipose (tissues) shrink and you lose weight. So, the fat in your body does not disappear. It just changes its form.
Before discussing the magical Indian diet plan to lose weight in 10 days and to maintain it forever, let us discuss a few simple rules.
Begin your day early at 5 pm with a glassful of lukewarm lemon water and mix a spoonful of garlic chew in it. (garlic releases neurotransmitter norepinephrine that boosts metabolism)
Take your breakfast as early as 7 am. Make it protein-rich to remain filled till the lunch time. (Protein takes a lot of time to digest and keeps you satiated for a long time)
Lunch should be lighter, earlier (12 pm) and supplemented with a lot of raw veggies and lentils.
Whole grains and high fiber rich diet is a boon for you. As such fiber is not magical and does not have fat burning properties but yes it controls weight by keeping you full for a long time.
Supplement your meals with healthy snacks. (If you starve your body it sends similar signals to the brain and the fat begin to store to prevent your body from entering into starvation mode.)
Avoid eating anything raw including salads after sunset. (Photogenic energy helps in digestion.)
Take early dinner (7-8pm) so that your body can burn the calories till you time you go to sleep.
Do not skip breakfast. If you do you would not be able to initiate the thermogenisis process of your body that boosts the metabolic rate.
Do not gobble down your food. Chewing every bite of your food thoroughly will help your body digest the important nutrient properly. You need to chew every mouthful 30-50 times.
Do not cut to down healthy carbs from your diet. (You need a balanced diet not a poor diet for healthy weight loss)
Do not go to sleep after meals. (Give your body some time to initiate the digestion process and start burning fat.)
Indian Diet Plan To Lose Weight In 10 Days:
Here is a short glimpse at Indian diet plan:
The Atkins Diet Plan:
This diet is not meant for the people suffering from kidney diseases. As per this diet plan, you need to cut down the carbs intake and let your body uses the stored fat as a fuel. You begin to lose weight since your body begins to produce ketones and use it as a major source of energy.
Eating low carbs and more of proteins is recommended.
South Beach Diet:
It is one of the most favored diet that is followed all across the world and good for heart patients. The diet plan is tested and you can eat a variety of low-calories food that is high in fibers. This will curb your cravings and helps you lose weight for a long-term.
This diet plan works in the principle of shedding calories by eating like cavemen does. This is also called Stone Age Diet. All type of fruits, fish and healthy fats should be incorporated in this diet. Under this diet plan you need to avoid all the processed foods, refined sugars, potatoes, dairy, refined oils, salt and dairy.
This Indian diet plan to lose weight in 10 days is a sure shot which you should go for

I love a facial toner that’s both refreshing and gentle enough to use every day, but most commercial toners aren’t good for you. They may help absorb excess oils from the face and even out the complexion, but many are full of harsh chemicals and fragrances and come at a hefty price.Fortunately, one of my favorite toners can be found in your kitchen! This toner relies on apple cider vinegar, which helps balance and restore skin’s natural pH. You’ll find that this Apple Cider Vinegar Toner will improve overall skin complexion, plus help lighten those stubborn sun spots and even out skin tone.It can also reduce the appearance of pores and can be added to your home remedies for acne, as it helps prevent acne breakouts and scarring! Another key ingredient in this Apple Cider Vinegar Toner recipe is witch hazel, which is an extract from the leaves and bark of the North American witch hazel shrub. It’s anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial, and these characteristics make it another great choice because it helps fight off acne, blemishes and other skin irritations. It also helps hydrate the skin by locking in moisture. Because it’s high in tannins, witch hazel tightens the skin and can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.How to use a facial toner: A facial toner refers to a lotion or wash designed to cleanse the skin and shrink the appearance of pores. It’s most commonly applied to the face. Facial toners, also called skin toners, are used to remove lingering traces of dirt, oil and make-up.

Skincare is so important, so no wonder there’s such a plethora of products out there to choose from — including in our natural foods grocery stores. As a result, it’s pretty confusing, too, with all of the choices on the market. But if you haven’t tried vitamin C, such as a DIY Vitamin C Serum for the Face, you may be missing out some big skin benefits.
While we know that eating vitamin C–rich foods like citrus fruits, berries and dark leafy greens (such as kale) can definitely heal inside the body, making vitamin C as part of your daily skin regimen can heal from outside-in as well! Vitamin C provides repair and growth of the skin tissue. It also contains amazing and powerful antioxidants that can protect the skin from damaging free radicals.
How Vitamin C Works for Youthful Skin
Vitamin C is one of nature’s amazing and naturally occurring antioxidants in nature. While plants can synthesize the vitamin C into useful form, our bodies cannot because we are missing the enzyme L-glucono-gamma lactone oxidase that is required for the synthesis of vitamin C.
That is why we have to obtain our vitamin C from citrus fruits, strawberries, raspberries, papaya and vegetables, like leafy greens and broccoli. Sailors knew this having carried vitamin C-rich foods during their travels to help them avoid scurvy and other diseases. Eating forms of vitamin C is definitely crucial in good health, but absorption of it is limited.
Therefore, while it will not benefit you to overconsume vitamin C foods, applying it topically such as with a DIY vitamin C serum can be of great benefit to the skin and can become a part of your natural skin care routine. (1)
3 Benefits of Vitamin C Serum
1. Prevents Changes Due to Photoaging
Because vitamin C is a potent antioxidant, it’s a great option to treat and prevent effects of photoaging. A study of 19 patients between the ages of 36 and 72 years who had Fitzpatrick skin types I, II and III, and mild to moderately photodamaged facial skin were assessed. The study showed significant improvements by about 68–74 percent improvement in their skin after three months of use of ascorbic acid application. The review showed significant improvement in fine wrinkles, texture and skin tone of photodamaged skin. (2)
2. Reduces Hyperpigmentation
Though hyperpigmentation is relatively harmless, it can cause those unsightly dark spots on the skin, especially the face and hands. Basically, patches of skin appear darker in color. This happens when there is an excess of melanin that creates deposits in the skin.
You may have heard of age or “liver” spots. These are the visible signs of hyperpigmentation and typically caused by damaging sun exposure. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps brighten the skin through what is called tyrosinase inhibitors. These little inhibitors help prevent the development of excessive amounts of melanin. (3) (4)
3. Provides Essential Collagen Support
Vitamin C helps develop healthy collagen by teaming up with certain enzymes that are responsible for the effectiveness of collagen molecules. As such, it helps provide support for connective tissue plus the healing of wounds and blemishes on the skin.
Additionally, vitamin C plays a role in collagen synthesis by enhancing the collagen “gene expression” and overall regulation of collagen synthesis. Scurvy, as mentioned above, is due to impaired collagen synthesis — or the result of too little vitamin C. While scurvy is not heard of as much today, it brings awareness to the power of a DIY vitamin C serum for the skin and the importance of collagen support. (5)
Homemade Vitamin C Serum
Using a small bowl and a whisk, combine the vitamin C powder and filtered water. Blend well. As mentioned, the vitamin C can help brighten the skin and provide more youthful looking appearance. It can fade age spots and improve elasticity! Now, add the aloe and blend again. Aloe vera has long been known for its amazing skin benefits. In fact, the ancient Egyptians called it the “plant of immortality.” Today, it’s still used to treat various skin conditions, wounds and burns, and even eczema and psoriasis. Once you have added the aloe, add the vitamin E oil and the frankincense oil until everything is completely mixed together. Like vitamin C, vitamin E is an amazing antioxidant. When combined with vitamin C and the rest of these ingredients, it becomes even more powerful! The National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) described the process of neutralizing free radicals using vitamin E. These free radicals can cause damage to cells and may even add to the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. The ODS goes on to explain that the anti-inflammatory benefits it possesses can inhibit platelet aggregation and provide a boost to the immune system. (6) Frankincense is one of my all-time favorite essential oils. This ingredient tops off the amazing DIY Vitamin C Serum for the Face due to its ageless properties. It can help reduce acne, eliminate and even prevent wrinkles, and help tighten skin, especially in those saggy spots like just above the jaw line and under the eyes!
Now that all ingredients have been blended, use a funnel to transfer the serum into a dark bottle. It is best to keep it away from bright light and the sun. Using a dark amber bottle can help, and you can keep it in the fridge for up to two weeks. The best way to use this DIY vitamin C serum for the face is just before bed. Wash your face with this homemade face wash, then use a my DIY rosewater toner. Allow the face to dry, then make sure to gently shake the serum bottle just before use and apply a small amount of my DIY Vitamin C Serum. Again, allow it to dry and top it off with this DIY lavender and coconut oil moisturizer. Note: The Vitamin C Serum should only be used at night to avoid exposure to the sun. Make sure to cleanse the skin the next morning before applying sunscreen and makeup.
