            rimal published a blog post Nail Care Tips

            The nail is made of a hard protein called keratin. A protein is one of the building blocks which make up the body. The nail care help protect the ends of the fingers and toes from trauma and also help us pick up small objects.

            Over the last hundred years, the nails have become more important for cosmetic reasons and less important for protection.

            Manicuring is the care of the hands and nails. Basic manicuring should be done once a week.  Nice looking, neat, natural nails require care and proper manicuring. A shortish nail that is straight across the top with rounded edges is the current in style shape.  Other shapes include square, round, and oval.

            1. Infections
            - you may have a nail fungus infection if your nails go crumbly and whitish/yellowish and separate from the nail bed
            - hangnails or loose skin around the sides of your nails should be trimmed with a shape scissor or nail nipper to reduce the risk of skin tearing or infections getting into the skin

            2. Basic Nail Care
            - Wash hands with mild soap, using a nailbrush.
            - Soak the hands in warm water for a few minutes to soften the cuticles (the bits of skin at the bottom of the nails).
            - Very gently push back the cuticles if they are long and ragged.
            - Trim the nails to the same length, cutting off any snaggy or spiky bits.
            - File the ends of the nails to smooth them off.
            - If your hands are dry, apply some hand cream (it doesn't have to be the girly stuff that stinks of flowers, lads).
            - Try not to bite your nails. 

            3. Filing Nails:
            - file the nail when the free edge is 1/4 th  long (otherwise the nail will weaken)
            - file from the corner of the nail towards the center in one direction.
            - Should be done whenever necessary (sharp edges, weekly basis)

            4. Buffing Nails:
            - gives nails a shinier finish
            - don't go back and forth to create heat - does damage to the nail
            - should not be done all the time

            5. Clean Nails:
            - clean the nails from oils, lotions, and old polish
            - ensure the nails are dry before beginning your new manicure

            6. Base Coat:
            - the base coat protects the nail from staining and keeps the polish from chipping (so it lasts longer)

            7. Applying Polish:
            - two thin layers of polish looks better than one thick layer
            - apply polish to the sides and finish through the centre to keep a nice finish to the polish
            - ensure the polish is thin enough prior to applying to the nail Drying Time:
            - allow several minutes for polish to dry before applying the next coat
            - drying time allows the next coat to adhere properly to the first coat
            - dark shades need more time to dry

            8. Top Coat:
            - apply to nail once last coat of polish has dried completely

            9. Moisturize:
            - after nails are completely dry, apply moisturizer to hand and nails especially the cuticles

            10. Cuticle Oil:
            - massage into the cuticle to moisturize and soften dry spots on the cuticles

            11. Bed Time:
            - apply cream to nail and hands before going to bed

              General Tips 
              1. Eat at least three times per day.
              2. Pay attention to your body. When you feel like you have had enough to eat, stop. Quit before you feel full, stuffed, or sick from eating. You can have more if you are really hungry.
              3. If you still feel hungry or unsatisfied after a meal or snack, wait at least 10 minutes before you have more food. Often, the craving will go away.
              4. Drink plenty of calorie-free drinks (water, tea, coffee, diet soda). You may be thirsty, not hungry.
              5. Pick lean meats, low-fat or nonfat cheese, and skim (nonfat) or 1% fat milk instead of higher-fat/higher-calorie choices.
              6. Get plenty of fiber. Vegetables, fruits, and whole grains are good sources. Have a high fiber cereal every day.
              7. Cut back on sugar. For example, drink less fruit juice and regular soda.
              8. Limit the amount of alcohol (beer, wine, and liquor) that you drink.
              9. Keep all food in the kitchen. Eat only in a chosen place, such as at the table. Don’t eat in the car or the bedroom or in front of the TV.

              Food Preparation 
              10. Plan meals ahead of time.
              11. Try cooking methods that cut calories:
              12  Cook without adding fat (bake, broil, roast, boil).
              13. Use nonstick cooking sprays instead of butter or oil. You can also use wine, broth, or fruit juice instead of oil when cooking.
              14. Use low-calorie foods instead of high-calorie ones when possible.
              15. Cook only what you need for one meal (don’t make leftovers). 
              16. If you do make extra portions, put them away as soon as they are ready so you can save them for other meals. Store the leftovers in containers that you can’t see through.
              17. Cook when you are not hungry. For example, cook and refrigerate tomorrow’s dinner after you have finished eating tonight.
              18. Make fruits, vegetables, and other low-calorie foods part of each meal.
              19. Drink water while you cook.

              Mealtimes 
              20. Drink a glass of water before you eat. Drink more during meals.
              21. Use smaller plates, bowls, glasses, and serving spoons.
              22. Divide your plate into four equal parts. Use one part for meat, one for starch (such as pasta, rice, potatoes, or bread), and two for nonstarchy vegetables.
              23. Do not put serving dishes on the table. This will make it harder to take a second portion.
              24. Put salad dressing on the side instead of mixing it with, or pouring onto your salad. Then dip your fork into the dressing before you spear a bite of salad.
              25. Change your usual place at the table.
              26. Make mealtime special by using pretty dishes, napkins, and glasses.
              27. Eat slowly. Take a few one-minute breaks from eating during meals. Put your fork down between bites. Cut your food one bite at a time.
              28. Enjoy fruit for dessert instead of cake, pie, or other sweets.
              29. Leave a little food on your plate. (You control the food; it doesn’t control you.)
              30. Remove your plate as soon as you’ve finished eating.
              31. If there’s no good use for leftovers, throw them out!

              Snacking 
              Snacking can be part of your plan for healthy weight loss. You can eat six times per day as long as you plan what to eat and don’t eat too many calories.
              32. Plan ahead. Be sure to have healthy snacks on hand. If the right food is not there, you may be more likely to eat whatever is available, such as candy, cookies, chips, leftovers, or other “quick” choices.
              33. Keep low-calorie snacks in a special part of the refrigerator. Good choices include the following:
              34. Reduced-fat string cheese, low-calorie yogurt, and nonfat milk.
              35. Washed, bite-size pieces of raw vegetables, such as carrots, celery, pepper strips, cucumbers, broccoli, and cauliflower. Serve with low-calorie dips.
              36. Fresh fruit.

              Eating and Emotions 
              Do you use eating to deal with feelings other than hunger, such as boredom, being tired, or stress. If you eat for these reasons, here are some other things you can try: 
              37. Call a friend for support.
              38. Use inspirational quotes to help you avoid the temptation to eat.
              39. Take a warm bath or shower.
              40. Listen to music or a relaxation CD.
              41. Take a walk.
              42. Try activities that keep you from eating. For example, it’s hard to eat while you’re exercising. If you are gardening, you probably won’t eat while your hands are covered in soil.

                Nothing melts in your mouth like chocolate-that’s one of the reasons so many people love it.  Chocolate‘s creamy, melting qualities come from cocoa butter, the naturally occurring fat found in cocoa beans.  Many plants are rich sources of natural fats olives, soybeans, peanuts, avocados and sunflower seeds, to name a few.  But only the cocoa bean provides the creamy and luxurious fat known as cocoa butter.

                The Story of Cocoa Butter
                Like many trees, the cacao tree produces fruit.  Inside this fruit are seeds known as “cocoa beans.”  When cocoa beans are crushed and pressed, cocoa butter and cocoa powder are released, both of which are essential to chocolate making.

                Why Cocoa Butter?
                The first “eating” chocolate was made in 1847 by adding cocoa butter to ground cocoa beans and sugar.  Look on the ingredient label of any chocolate bar today and you’ll find “cocoa butter” listed.  It’s an essential ingredient in chocolate.  Cocoa butter contributes to the delightful mouth-feel and flavor release of chocolate, and its unique and valuable characteristics set it apart from other  plant-derived fats:

                Melting Point 
                Cocoa butter is solid at room temperature and melts rather quickly in a 90°F - 93°F temperature range, just below body temperature (98.6°F).  This distinction is responsible for chocolate’s pleasant, melt-in-your-mouth sensation, a characteristic unique to cocoa butter.

                Contraction 
                When liquid cocoa butter becomes solid, it contracts slightly, which keeps it from binding to a mould.  This important property allows chocolate to be easily removed from moulds and gives us popular shaped confections like chocolate Easter bunnies, hearts, leaves, coins and more.

                Cocoa Butter and You 
                Because cocoa butter naturally contains saturated fat, many people wonder how it will affect their cholesterol levels.  Stearic acid is the predominate saturated fat in cocoa butter.  Stearic acid is unique and research has shown that it has an overall neutral effect on blood cholesterol.

                In fact, studies indicate that eating chocolate on a daily basis, without an increase in calories in overall diet, may have no effect on blood cholesterol levels.

                A Feel Good Fat
                From the bean to the bar, cocoa butter is an essential part of chocolate.  Its exceptional characteristics are responsible for chocolate’s unique mouth-feel and neutral effect on blood cholesterol levels.  While there is still much to learn about this distinctive fat, just like chocolate, it’s something to feel good about.

                Good for You, Inside and Out
                Because cocoa butter is solid at room temperature, when applied to the skin it forms a thin protecting barrier that locks in moisture and blocks out harsh outside elements. That is why cocoa butter is commonly referred to as the “ultimate moisturizer” and used as a key ingredient in many lotions, lip balms, cosmetics and even anti-aging and scar reducing topical treatments. In fact,  doctors and scientists recognize cocoa butter as a skin protectant often  recommended for care of dry skin conditions.

                Myth Melting 
                Myth: Cocoa butter is a type of butter.
                Fact: According to the Food and Drug Administration, “butter” is made exclusively from milk, cream or both.  Given this definition, cocoa butter is not technically a “butter.” It is a fat that comes from the cocoa bean, the seeds inside the fruit of the cacao tree.

                Myth: Cocoa butter contains cholesterol.
                Fact: Cholesterol from foods is only found in foods of animal origin, such as meat, fish, seafood, eggs and dairy products.  Because cocoa butter comes from a plant, it does not contain cholesterol.

                Myth: Cocoa butter raises blood cholesterol levels.
                Fact: Cocoa butter has been found to have an overall neutral effect on blood cholesterol levels.  While researchers are still investigating this effect, it is believed that this is due to cocoa butter’s naturally occurring fats called stearic acid, a unique saturated fat that does not raise blood cholesterol levels, and oleic acid.

                Myth: Cocoa butter contains partially hydrogenated oil, a trans fat.
                Fact: Partially hydrogenated oils, the most prominent source of trans fats in the diet, are man-made and have been linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.  Cocoa butter is a naturally-occurring fat that is not hydrogenated and contains no trans fat.

                  rimal published a blog post Health Benefits Of Barley

                  Barley is a healthful addition to the diet. When it comes to good nutrition, this ancient grain packs a powerful punch.

                  Barley is an excellent source of total dietary fiber, containing both soluble and insoluble fiber.

                  Unlike many grains, which contain fiber only in the outer bran layer, barley contains fiber throughout the  entire kernel. So even highly processed barley products that are missing the bran yield significant amounts of healthful fiber.

                  Barley contains more total dietary fiber than other typical grains.  A half-cup serving of cooked pearl barley contains 3 grams total dietary fiber.  In comparison, a half cup of cooked brown long-grain rice contains 1.75 grams total dietary fiber and a half cup of cooked white long-grain  rice  contains  less  than 1 gram of total dietary fiber.

                  Like all plant products, barley is cholesterol-free and low in fat.

                  Barley contains antioxidants and a number of important vitamins and minerals that are essential for good health. These include niacin, thiamin, selenium, iron, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus and copper.

                  Eating barley can help reduce significant health risks.  
                  Coronary heart disease
                  Barley is an excellent source of beta-glucan, a type of soluble fiber. Studies show that eating barley beta-glucan soluble fiber lowers total and LDL (bad) cholesterol and reduces the risk for coronary heart disease. In addition, studies show that eating barley helps manage high blood pressure, another risk factor for heart disease.

                  Diabetes
                  Studies show that barley beta-glucan soluble fiber is effective in maintaining healthful blood sugar levels and in turn, is helpful in preventing or managing type 2 diabetes.

                  Obesity
                  Studies show that high-fiber foods such as barley are effective in weight management and protecting against obesity. Fiber-rich foods are processed more slowly in the body, resulting in absorption of important nutrients over a longer period of time.  They also tend to promote satiety or a feeling of fullness which may help reduce overeating.

                    rimal published a blog post DISEASES OF THE GUMS

                    Gums are made of soft tissue. They surround the bottom portion of your teeth (called the tooth root). Taking care of your gums is just as important as taking care of your teeth. The most common gum complaints are redness, swelling, tenderness and bleeding of the gums, which is a sign of inflamed gums or "gingivitis". This is caused due to the build up of plaque, a bacteria filled concoction of food and saliva, around the base of the teeth or in between the teeth and the gums. Thus brushing the teeth after every meal and flossing them at least twice daily helps to prevent the collection of plaque.

                    Women are more susceptible to gingivitis than men. Their gums bleed easily especially during their menstrual periods or during their pregnancy. Gingivitis is also common in people wearing dentures that don"t fit them properly or in those suffering from diabetes, chronic smokers, leukemia, etc. or  in those going through a lot of stress. Heredity, certain drugs (especially antidepressants, oral contraceptives, antihistamines, decongestants, nasal sprays and certain medications for hearttroubles) and vitamin deficiencies are some of the other common causes.

                    "Scurvy" is a condition where the gums become red, hot, swollen, spongy, very sensitive and they separate from the teeth and there can be formation of small ulcers on the gums, inside of lips and cheeks, palate and on the tongue with an offensive odor from the mouth. This condition usually results due to dietary deficiencies, especially that of Vitamin C or can be due to heredity, certain drugs or stress.

                    Use a soft bristled brush for sore and inflamed gums. Proxabrush is a special inter proximal brush that has tiny bristles that go below the gum line, where floss cannot reach. They are thus useful when used in conjunction with normal brushing and flossing.

                    SOME HOME REMEDIES

                    1. Incorporate a lot of fresh, raw or lightly cooked vegetables (especially broccoli, pecacua, cauliflower and tomatoes) and fresh, raw fruits (especially citrus fruits, which are a rich source of vitamin C) in your diet. The person should take a well balanced diet consisting of seeds, nuts, grains, vegetables and fruits.

                    2. Mixture of carrot and beetroot juice is a useful remedy for gum disorders.

                    3. Chew one unripe guava daily to stop the bleeding from the gums because of its richness in vitamin C.

                    4. Eating oranges and rubbing the gums with their skins daily can help cure pyorrhea (inflammation of the gums).

                    5. Oranges, pomegranates (anar) and bananas are useful for bleeding gums.

                    6. Oil from leaves of cinnamon tree (dalchini) is expressed and applied to the gums to make them firm and strong.

                    7. Dry Indian gooseberry (amla) should be  powdered with an equal quantity of sugar and this powder should be given in doses of one teaspoonful, three times daily, with milk.

                    8. Wash and cut six lemons in small pieces and pour in some water and bring it to a boil. Then let it cool for about half an hour and then strain it and hold some of this juice in your mouth for a few minutes and take a few glasses of it daily for a few days.

                    9. The juice of raw spinach (palak) is another useful remedy for bleeding gums and for the treatment of pyorrhea.

                    10. Grind a few cloves (lavang) to a paste and mix it with lemon juice and massage this paste over the gums.

                    11. Onions eaten raw keeps the gums healthy and strong.

                    12. Washing the gums daily with salt solution helps.

                    13. Lettuce leaves should be chewed daily immediately after meals.

                    14. One to two cloves of garlic should be chewed daily to keep them strong and prevent any bleeding gums.

                    15. Chewing cardamom (elaichi) seeds is useful to prevent gum decay.

                    16. Potato should be included in your daily diet, since it is a good source of Vitamin C.

                    17. Moisten a small piece of cotton with sandalwood oil and apply it locally over the bleeding gums.

                    18. Betel nut is chewed to check bleeding from gums.

                      Regardless of its length or style, we all want one thing: a healthy, great looking head of hair. But the first step to having healthy, luxurious hair is to know its exact type. Is it oily, dry or normal? It your hair naturally curly or straight? Are you troubled by dandruff? Has your hair been processed in some way? Is it brittle or strong? Knowing your true starting point will allow you to better care for your hair and keep it looking its absolute best.
                       
                      With short hairstyles, it’s important to protect your hair and your scalp every time you are in the sun. Look for protective styling products, and be sure to wear a hat to avoid sunburn. If your hair is short and curly, you should know that curly hair tends to break easier and needs more moisture than other types of hair.The key to keeping medium-length to long hair beautiful and healthy looking is to protect it from split ends and becoming brittle. The longer hair is, the heavier it is, and as a result, more prone to breakage. If you have long or medium-length hair, never use a rubber band to pull your hair back into a ponytail as they can pull and damage hair. Instead, use a something elastic that is covered in a soft cloth to avoid breaking the delicate hair shafts.


                      Here are a few simple do’s and don’ts to remember for every length and style of hair :


                      6 Essential Hair Care Do’s :

                      - Do gently brush your hair each night before going to bed as it will stimulate blood flow to your scalp and promote healthy hair growth.

                      - Do be sure to hold the hair dryer at least six to eight inches away from your hair and keep it moving at all times to avoid scorching the hair.

                      - Do gently wash your hair using a mild shampoo suitable for your type of hair with lukewarm water.

                      - Do use a conditioner to keep your hair manageable, healthy, and free of tangles.

                      - Do be sure to drink plenty of water and follow a balanced diet. Many people aren’t aware of the important role that proper nutrition plays regarding healthy hair care. Water is essential to keep your body and hair properly hydrated.

                      - Do try to avoid touching your hair unnecessarily as the oils from your hands can cause your hair to lose its luster and become dirtier faster.

                      6 Essential Hair Care Don’ts :

                      - Don’t brush wet hair, use a comb instead to avoid pulling and risking breakage.

                      - Don’t blow-dry your hair every day, the constant heat will cause it to become brittle and prone to breakage. Likewise, use your curling iron on the lowest possible setting.

                      - Don’t over process your hair using strong dyes and chemicals. If you do relax your hair or have it permanently waved, be sure to wait as long as possible in between treatments to avoid over processing and damage.

                      - Don’t change your hair color to more than three shades, in either direction, lighter or darker, to avoid excessive damage.

                      - Don’t wash your hair in extra hot water, instead use warm, and use cool water for the final rinse.
                      - Don’t allow stress to adversely affect your health, including your hair.

                          What is swine flu?
                           
                          Swine Influenza (swine flu) is a respiratory disease of pigs caused by type A influenza viruses that causes regular outbreaks in pigs. People do not normally get swine flu, but human infections can and do happen. Swine flu viruses have been reported to spread from person-to-person, but in the past, this transmission was limited and not sustained beyond three people.
                           
                          Is this swine flu virus contagious?
                           
                          CDC has determined that this swine influenza A (H1N1) virus is contagious and is spreading from human to human. However, at this time, it is not known how easily the virus spreads between people and between countries.
                           
                          What are the signs and symptoms of swine flu in people?
                           
                          The symptoms of swine flu in people are similar to the symptoms of regular human flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache,chills and fatigue. Some people have reported 
                          diarrhea and vomiting associated with swine flu. In the past, severe illness (pneumonia and respiratory failure) and deaths have been reported with swine flu infection in people. Like seasonal flu, swine flu may cause a worsening of underlying chronic medical
                           
                          conditions.
                           
                          How does swine flu spread?
                           
                          Spread of swine influenza A (H1N1) virus is thought to be happening in the same way as that of seasonal flu. Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing of people with influenza. Sometimes people may become infectedby touching something with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose.
                           
                          How can someone with the flu infect someone else?
                           
                          Infected people may be able to infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 7 or more days after becoming sick.
                           
                          What should I do to keep from getting the flu?
                           
                          First and most important: wash your hands frequently. Try to stay in good general health. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food. Avoid touching surfaces that may be contaminated with the flu virus. Avoid close contact with people having respiratory illness.
                           
                          Are there medicines to treat swine flu?
                           
                          Yes. The use of Oseltamivir for the treatment and/or prevention of infection with these swine influenza viruses is recommended. Antiviral drugs fight against the flu by keeping flu viruses from reproducing in your body. If you get sick, antiviral drugs can make
                          your illness milder and make you feel better faster.They may also prevent serious flu complications. For treatment, antiviral drugs work best if started soon after getting sick (within 2 days of symptoms). They are currently available with hospitals and are to be administered under supervision of clinicians.
                           
                          How long can an infected person spread swine flu to others?
                           
                          People with swine influenza virus infection should be considered potentially contagious as long as they are symptomatic and possibly for up to 7 days following onset of illness. Children, especially younger children, might potentially be contagious for longer periods.
                           
                          What surfaces are most likely to be sources of contamination?
                           
                          Germs can be spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth. Droplets from a cough or sneeze of an infected person move through the air.
                           
                          How long can viruses live outside the body?
                           
                          We know that some viruses and bacteria can live 2 hours or longer on surfaces like cafeteria tables, doorknobs, and desks. Frequent hand washing will help you reduce the chance of getting contamination from these common surfaces.
                           
                          What can I do to protect myself from getting sick?
                           
                          Currently available seasonal influenza vaccine does not protect against swine flu. There are everyday actions that can help prevent the spread of germs that cause respiratory illnesses like influenza.
                           
                          Take these everyday steps to protect your health:-
                           
                          • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
                          • Wash your hands often with soap and water,especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol based hand cleaners are also effective.
                          • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.
                          • Try to avoid close contact with people having respiratory illness.
                          • If one gets sick with influenza, one must stay at home, away from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them. However, if one is having any respiratory distress, one should report to a nearby hospital.
                          What should I do if I get sick?
                           

                          If you live in areas where swine influenza cases have been identified and become ill with influenza like symptoms e.g. fever, body aches, runny nose,sore throat, nausea, or vomiting or diarrhea, you may contact their health care provider, particularly if you are worried about your symptoms. Your health care provider will determine whether influenza testing or treatment is needed.

                           
                          If you are sick, you should stay home and avoid contact with other people as much as possible to keep from spreading your illness to others. If you become ill and experience any of the following warning signs, seek emergency medical care.
                           
                          In children emergency warning signs that need urgent medical attention include:
                          • Fast breathing or trouble breathing
                          • Bluish skin color
                          • Not drinking enough fluids/eating food
                          • Not waking up or not interacting
                          • Being so irritable that the child does not want to be held
                          • Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough
                          • Fever with a rash
                          In adults, emergency warning signs that need urgent medical attention include:
                           
                          • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
                          • Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen
                          • Sudden dizziness
                          • Confusion
                          • Severe or persistent vomiting
                          Can I get swine influenza from eating or preparing pork?
                           
                          No. swine influenza viruses are not spread by food. Eating properly handled and cooked pork products is safe.

                              The health benefits of olive oil have been touted for many hundreds of years. More recently, coconut oil has become all the rage and hailed by many as the king of oils. But, whatever oil you choose - whether it’s olive, coconut, almond, canola, peanut, safflower, walnut, or even avocado oil - none compare to the powerful nutritional virtues of virgin organic red palm fruit oil.

                              The health benefits of red palm fruit oil can be achieved by incorporating only 1-2 tablespoons into your daily diet.

                              Red Palm Fruit Oil vs. Palm Kernel Oil
                              Regarded as a sacred healing food by many civilizations, including the ancient Egyptians, crude or virgin red palm fruit oil should be regarded as one of the most nutritious edible oils in the world. It is not to be confused with palm kernel oil .

                              It is derived from the fruit of the oil palm tree (Elaeis guineensis) and is referred to as "red palm oil" because of its rich dark red color in its unprocessed natural  state. Palm kernel oil is derived from the seed or the kernel.

                              Power-Packed Contents  

                              Red palm oil’s health promoting properties are largely attributed to its high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory contents. Red palm oil is a rich source of tocotrienol, a powerful form of vitamin E,  lycopene and carotenoids, the latter being responsible for the oil’s distinctive red color in its unprocessed state.

                              Red palm oil has great science behind it for its beneficial role in fighting heart disease and high cholesterol.

                              Red palm oil has repeatedly stunned researchers with its heart-protective and cholesterol-lowering properties.  Studies have shown that adding palm oil in the diet can reduce plaque build-up in arteries and, therefore, reverse the process of plaque and prevent blockages formation within blood vessel walls. Science now understands that inflammation in the artery lining is what causes cholesterol to deposit in the first place. So, it makes sense that the protective effects come from the high antioxidant, anti-inflammatory content of the red palm oil which works to quench free radicals and keep inflammation under control.  Apart from helping tear away plaque from blood vessel walls, red palm oil also helps maintain healthy blood pressure and
                              cholesterol levels.

                              Brain Health
                              One of the natural vitamin E forms found in high amounts in red palm oil is known for its neuro-protective properties. When it comes to your brain,  the special form of vitamin-E (tocotrienol) in red palm oil stops destructive damage and improves blood flow to brain cells, which can also help to prevent Alzheimer's disease and dementia.

                              Anti-Cancer Food 
                              The high antioxidant content of red palm oil makes it a potent anti-cancer food. Though  tocotrienols can be found in rice bran, barley and wheat, red palm oil is the richest source of  tocotrienol. Research suggests that this form of vitamin E may help fight skin, stomach, pancreas, liver, lung, colon, prostate, breast, and other
                              cancers.

                              The  antioxidant power of red palm oil can be of help in protecting against a variety of health  problems, including osteoporosis, asthma, cataracts, macular degeneration, arthritis, and liver disease. It can even slow down the premature aging processes by protecting the skin against damaging UV rays.

                              Additionally, research has shown that red palm oil promotes  nutrient utilization, improves liver detoxification pathways and improves immune function.
