Your shining smile might be an open invitation to liver disease and cancer

Every time you brush your teeth or have a shower, you might be damaging your liver and paving the way for tumors

Believe it!

Triclosan is an ingredient found in soaps, shampoos, toothpastes and many other household items. Studies have established that long-term exposure to it may cause liver fibrosis and cancer.

All over the world, triclosan’s increasing detection in environmental samples and its increasingly broad use in consumer products present a very real risk of liver tumors for people.

How does this happen?

The study suggests triclosan interferes with a protein responsible for clearing away foreign chemicals in the body. Because of this stress, liver cells try to compensate by proliferating. They turn fibrotic over time and this eventually leads to tumour formation.

Scientists feel we could reduce most human and environmental exposures by eliminating uses of this most commonly found consumer antibacterial in liquid hand soaps, shampoos and toothpastes.

How can we avoid this?

The solution is staring us in the face. Ancient Ayurveda and herbal cosmetic care includes the use of neem and babul sticks to brush teeth, multani mitti and gram flour to use as body and face cleansers and other natural products for skincare and so many other cosmetic benefits. There are many grandmother’s recipes for these.

Natural Mantra offers a range of natural personal care products for safe beauty.

Turn to organic and natural solutions, and bring a genuine smile back to your life!

Why do you drink liquids or juices while exercising?

If you are a workout junkie, you must surely have your own personal sports bottle of a refreshing or energy drink to keep you ‘going’. A bewildering variety of sports drinks promise to help you go longer, get stronger, run faster, and recover better. But why should you drink something during your workouts?

Well, it certainly is important to stay hydrated during exercise. But for the average workout of 60 minutes or less, you typically won’t need anything more than water. If you’re going longer than an hour, or it’s hot and humid outside, then you may need more than that.   Here is what you need to know to stay hydrated.

STICK TO WATER. Simple water is the best way to go. But do avoid packaged sports drinks for the sugar content in them is counter-productive to your exercise!

STAY HYDRATED THROUGHOUT THE DAY. The best way to avoid a last-minute rush to fill in on fluids before a workout is to sip small amounts of water or drinks like these herbal beverages & organic juices like Herbal Hills Wheat-O-Power throughout the day.

Fruit-Juices

DO THE BATHROOM CHECK. When you’re well hydrated, your urine will be the color of pale lemonade or straw. If it’s clear, you’re drinking too much. If it’s the color of apple juice, drink more.

DRINK WHEN YOU’RE THIRSTY. The body’s thirst mechanism is tuned to tell you when you need to hydrate. Don’t overhydrate!

DRINK MORE WHEN IT’S HOT AND HUMID. Hydration becomes most important during intense exercise in the heat. The best bet for rehydration is to drink beverages like natural Amla Juice or Triphala Juice, apart from coconut water, or water with a slice of fruit.

REHYDRATE POSTWORKOUT. Do you have white streaks on your skin or clothes after your workout? It means you’re a salty sweater. You’ve lost a lot of sodium. Try vegetable juices, which is a good source of sodium.

Hard workouts require extra hydration attention. Drink & Stay Happy!
