How to Get Rid of Premature Grey Hair

  • Black Tea
  • Rosemary and Sage Tea
  • Curry Leaves
  • Ridge Gourd
  • Ginger & Honey
Using a hair color is the most common and obvious way to cover your grays. It is usually suggested to opt for a semi-permanent or demi-permanent hair color on your hair if your hair is just starting to turn grey. They last for about a few weeks and do not damage your hair. However, in cases where there is almost 45-50% graying, it is better to use a permanent hair color that goes well with your skin and hair tone. Plus, prefer to use natural or neutral hair colors that are closest to your original hair color.
Indian gooseberry or amla is highly beneficial for reversing premature graying of hair. To prepare this remedy, you need to amla powder in coconut oil until the powder turns black. Cool and strain the solution. Finally, massage this oil on your hair and scalp on a regular basis. Amla powder can be purchased from a store or prepared at your home itself by drying fresh amla pieces in sunlight and eventually grinding them to get the powder. Besides, you can apply store-bought pure amla oil, a paste of amla powder and warm water, or a combination of equal parts of Indian gooseberry juice and almond oil to promote hair growth and eliminate grey hair. Furthermore, you can soak dried amla pieces in water overnight and use the solution as a last rinse after your hair wash. Plus, you may apply a tablespoon of amla pulp mixed with some lime juice and leave it overnight.

10 Foods That Will Help You Gain Healthy Weight

When we think about health it often goes hand in hand with weight loss or reducing calories. In many cases people want to do the opposite. Many of my friends are athletes who have been struggling to gain weight for years to improve their athletic ability. Some people are just naturally underweight and need to gain a few pounds in order to be healthy in general. A common mistake while attempting to gain weight is eating extremely high calorie foods with absolutely no nutritional value. That will lead to poor fitness and increased fat mass instead of lean muscle. In this article I will give you 10 foods that will help you gain healthy weight.

Eggs

An average egg contains 70 calories, 5 grams of fat, 6 grams of protein, and hardly any carbohydrates. They are a popular food among body builders because its extremely easy to add half a dozen eggs to a meal for the extra calories. It is risky to eat raw eggs and meats because of the possibility of salmonela, but eggs can be put into milkshakes or other drinks completely raw. You won’t even be able to taste them (If you do this I HIGHLY recommend that you make sure the egg has no cracks in it).

The protein in eggs give the body building blocks for muscles. The fats provide an efficient source of energy and it also increases testosterone levels. Eggs contain high levels ofOmega-3 fats which aid in joint mobility and body cell health.

In recent years egg yokes (the yellow part) has gotten a very bad reputation. As and example, it has become extremely popular to order egg white omelets, or scrambled egg whites instead of the whole egg. The reason for its bad rep is that it contains high amounts of cholesterol which was believed to be a risk factor for heart disease.

The truth is that eggs contain good cholesterols which actually decrease the amount of unhealthy cholesterol in the body. An element called choline is also present in egg yolks. Choline actually reduces fat build up in the heart and helps to rebuild cells. It has also been shown to benefit your mood.

The Effects of Birth Control on the Body

Birth control pills and patches, when used correctly, are very effective in preventing pregnancy. They’re safe for most healthy women and can even be used to treat a few health problems. However, as with almost all drugs, there are also some potential unwanted side effects and risks.

Effects of Birth Control on the Body

Hormone-based contraceptives are available in many forms, including pill form (oral contraceptives), as a patch that is placed on the skin, implantable preparations, and others. They each have about the same benefits and risks. To be effective, hormonal birth control use must be consistent. Skipping a day increases the chances of pregnancy.

Birth control pills and patches are dispensed only with a prescription. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, with typical use, about 8 percent of women will become pregnant in their first year of taking the pill. If the pill is used perfectly (defined as the pill being taken every single day at the same time), the rate falls to only 1 percent. That potentially makes the pill a very reliable method of birth control for very diligent women.

Neither the pill nor the patch protect against sexually transmitted diseases. According to the Mayo Clinic, if you’re a healthy non-smoker, it’s unlikely you’ll have serious side effects from oral contraceptives.
