Nitrates from beet root and processed meats are the same thing

Nitrates from beetroot and processed meats are the same thing

From an epidemiological perspective, nitrates are commonly thought to be adverse to health due to a long-standing restriction on how much nitrate can be in drinking water (50mg/L) or ground water (due to accumulating in vegetables) due to the risk of infantile methemoglobinemia (baby blue syndrome) which does appear to apply to vegetables.

More commonly, the association between processed meat products that are pink in color (which very commonly use sodium nitrate as a preservative) and cancer occurrence also paints nitrates in the same negative light.Conversely, vegetables are commonly stated to not be associated with cancer risk (which then raises concern about whether or not they are the same molecules).

Both consumption of vegetables (most commonly researched is Beet Root and consumption of the sodium nitrate preservative cause increases in serum nitrate and nitrite, and are considered bioequivalent. In some studies that assess nitrate’s bioactivity, liquid solutions of sodium nitrate are even used.

There are still differences between eating processed meat and vegetables in this regard (intake of sodium through the preservative sodium nitrate and higher intake of potassium via vegetables; less conversion of nitrate into nitrosamines with coingested antioxidants) but the molecule itself is the same.

Balance Hormones for Weight Loss

healthy life style is key to get fit ,

Male and Female body Key Hormones to Know


Fluctuations in certain hormone levels may contribute to stubborn belly fat, weight gain, sluggishness, stress, a lagging libido, sugar cravings, and health problems.

By Balancing hormones with right diet plan and supplements (Moringa Plus) You can shed excess pounds while transforming your energy levels and health.

Foods you can eat include lean protein (think chicken breasts, eggs, and wild-caught fish); vegetables and most fruit; chia seeds, flaxseeds, and most nuts; olive oil and some other unsaturated oils and fats, like canola oil; and whole grains like buckwheat, brown rice, and quinoa.

You’ll avoid or minimize caffeine, alcohol, fried foods, processed meat, peanuts, saturated fat, full-fat dairy, artificial sweeteners, and simple high-GI carbs like white bread.

You’ll eat often — every 3-4 hours — making healthy food choices at least 80% of the time. But you do get one to two “cheat meals” a week.

Level of Effort: Medium to High

First, you’ll quit caffeine, sugar, dairy, gluten, and most oils for 2 weeks.

Use pH strips to test your body’s pH balance; getting a series of blood, urine, or saliva tests to check hormone levels; and taking supplementsincluding multivitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, and calciummagnesiumvitamin D3, (Moringa Plus).

Limitations: If you’re used to eating prepared meals and snacks, The Hormone Diet might be a big adjustment, since it focuses on whole foods that you cook yourself. If you love coffee or soda, you may find it hard to give up these beverages in favor of green tea and other drinks.

Exercise:  30 minutes of exercise 6 days a week in a mix of strength training, cardio, interval training, and yoga.

Vegetarians and vegans: The diet includes protein sources that would work for you.Gluten-free: You give up gluten intially. Avoid some processed carbs, like white flour and white rice, and to steer clear of any foods that they felt they had a bad reaction to after the detox phase.Reaching a healthy weight can improve many conditions, including diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease.
The Final WordThe cocktail of supplements and the hormone theories are unfounded and not recommended. Keep in mind that many things affect your hormone levels. It’s not just about your food. To say that certain foods are “hormone hindering” is inaccurate and oversimplifies the role of nutrients in the body.

Do you have Thyroid problem

Check Thyroid Glands

The thyroid, a small, butterfly-shaped gland below your Adam’s apple, pretty much rules your body, says Douglas Husbands, DC, CCN, a clinical nutritionist and chiropractor in San Carlos, California. It regulates your metabolism, explains Husbands, and an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) slows everything down—from your pulse and temperature to your energy level and the rate at which you burn calories. An overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), on the other hand, revs the body into overdrive.

According to the New York Times bestselling author and leader of Functional Medicine, Dr. Amy Myer, over 25 million of US citizens have problems with this gland, and almost half of them are not aware about the problem. 90% of abnormal function of the thyroid are diagnosed as hypothyroidism or under-active function. Symptoms are vague, and doctors may spend only few minutes to diagnose the cause when a patient complains about something. That’s why we will show you how to recognize if your thyroid gland is having some problem.

Symptoms for abnormal function of the Thyroid problem:

  • Excess weight or difficulties with losing weight
  • Depression, anxiety, and mood swings
  • Hormone imbalance like low sex drive or irregular periods
  • Feeling tired constantly, even if you slept for 8 hours
  • Constipation
  • Cold feet and hands
  • Lose of hair, brittle nails, and dry skin
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Brain fog or loss of memory
  • Neck swelling or snoring

If you are suffering from any of the mentioned symptoms, you should immediately speak with a doctor, and take the needed test to diagnose the problem. For those who believe that they have thyroid gland problems, you can improve your gland with the following easy things.

10 Easy Things to improve your Thyroid:

  1. Consume iodine supplements and tyrosine (Thyroid hormones are made by your thyroid gland via the enzyme thyroid peroxidase which combines the amino acid tyrosine, the mineral halide iodie and hyrogen peroxide-Tyrosine is also an important cofactor for adrenal neurotransmitter synthesis, as it is converted In the adrenal glands into dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine.-Tyrosine is found in soy products, chicken, turkey, fish, peanuts, almonds, avocados, bananas, milk, cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese, lima beans, pumpkin seeds, and sesame seeds.)
  2. Go gluten-free
  3. Consume high quality multivitamins (Organic herbs in Islamabad)
  4. Do yoga or another best method to deal with stress( Yoga Classes in Islamabad)
  5. Improve your gut health (helping our bodies digest and absorb nutrients, synthesize certain vitamins, and rally against intruders, such as influenza and toxic cancer-forming carcinogens. In addition to boosting our immune system, microbiota sends messages to our brain and helps regulate metabolism.)
  6. Get 8  hours of sleep
  7. Eat cruciferous vegetables in moderate (Becoz Cruciferous vegetables can potentially be goitrogenic (inducing goiter formation). They contain enzymes that interfere with the formation of thyroid hormone in people with iodine deficiency. Cooking for 30 minutes significantly reduces the amount of goitrogens and nitriles. At high intake of crucifers, the goitrogens inhibit the incorporation of iodineinto thyroid hormone and also the transfer of iodine into milk by the mammary gland.)
  8. Reduce chlorine and fluoride from your daily diet (Iodine deficiency is one of the major causes of hypothyroidism, but very few people know that this can be the result of three everyday chemicals.- Chlorine, Fluoride and Bromine. )


Permanent Fat Loss

Fat loss

Weight loss and fat loss are not the same thing. The scale can be misleading if it‘s the only way you measure your progress, because the scale doesn‘t tell you the difference between fat weight and muscle weight. For example, a woman could weigh 110 pounds but have 33 percent body fat. That‘s what you call a ―skinny fat person. On the other hand, a well-trained female athlete could weigh 150 pounds and be very lean, with 16 percent body fat. That‘s what you call ―solid muscle.
What matters most is your ratio of muscle to fat—your body composition. With this distinction in mind, losing weight should not be your only goal. Your main focus should be burning the fat and keeping the muscle. As long as your body is mostly muscle, then you shouldn‘t worry so much about your total body weight. Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle will teach you how to measure your body fat and use body composition to track your progress. You‘ll learn how to get results as fast as possible, but you‘ll also be reminded that there‘s a world of difference between rapid weight loss and permanent fat loss.

Crash diets are tempting because they can produce quick weight loss, at least in the beginning. The problem is, when you cut calories too much, or banish entire food groups, you may not get enough vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, or fiber. Reduce your carbohydrates too much, and your energy level takes a nosedive. If you fall short on protein, you could lose lean body mass, which slows your metabolism and makes you softer and weaker. You might weigh less and fit into a smaller size, but your body still looks flabby.
Even if you grit your teeth and willpower your way through an extreme diet for a few months, the consequences outweigh the benefits. Deprivation diets make you lethargic, hungry, and miserable. You can‘t stay on them forever, so the weight loss rarely lasts. As with US! you‘ll discover that if you eat the right foods, you can actually eat more and nourish your body with all the nutrients it needs. You‘ll not only burn fat faster and keep it off, you‘ll also get healthier and feel more energized at the same time.

Yogic Breathing for Stress

Yogi Baqer at Julian Stupa Texila
Yogi Baqer at Julian Stupa Texila

Practice yoga & Meditation, relaxation, it contribute to reflection, focus, and peace of mind leading to improved self confidence and body empowerment. The key to a successful meditation is in your breathing.

The best way of breathing is called Diaphragmatic Breathing or belly breathing. Inhaling your breath into your belly allows the most oxygen into your body and combats the symptoms of stress.

Observe yourself right now. Does your stomach move out with each inhalation and in with each exhalation? When I am stressed, these actions are reversed which reduces the flow of oxygen to my brain and signals my body to stress out. When I take the time to observe my breathing and correct it, I immediately notice a difference; I feel more calm and at ease.

  • Inhale into your lungs and stomach for 4 counts
  • Hold your breath for 2 counts
  • Exhale slowly for 6 counts (make sure to squeeze all the air out of your stomach and lungs)
  • Repeat 10 times or until you calm down


Weight Loss Infused Water

Lose weight


Eating fresh foods, and drinking healthy drinks that do not contain artificial sweeteners can help you achieve weight loss success.

Naturally flavored and infused waters are a favorite when it comes to weight management.They taste deliciously good and you control the ingredients.In order to lose weight it is recommended to eat and drink more of the following:

Lose weight
Infuse Water to Lose Quickly


Cucumber is a considered as an extremely refreshing and low calorie food. Cucumber when taken 100 grams contains approximately 96% of water and 4% of calories in it. It is packed with minerals, dietary fibers and other vitamins which are very effective in losing the belly fat and makes you look fit and perfect. So regularly eat a plate of cucumber as a salad is termed as the healthy way to cleanse your body from harmful toxins that are released by the digestive system. This finally aids not only to lose belly fat or weight but also gives you radiant and glowing skin with its rich content of vitamin B and C when taken daily.


Ginger aids for a natural digestion and it is a thermo genic agent which increases the blood heat that aids to burn the fat more easy and perfectly in a short span of time. Basically over eating, age – related hormone reduction, stress, lack of regular exercises, etc. are considered as one of the reason for the belly fat. Ginger solves each of these issues properly. It also suppresses the production of cortisol (a steroid hormone that is essential for the energy regulation and also mobilization. It’s always better to have this ginger daily to lose the tummy fat.


They are high in pectin fiber, which helps suppress food cravings. It also helps the body eliminate waste products by cleansing and detoxifying it. Stressed liver won’t metabolism the fat efficiently and that gets deposited around your abdomen. So to detoxify the liver, you can use lemon water. Lemon water increases the enzymes that help to detoxify the liver and to accomplish the basic functions very effectively.

Water is often underestimated as a fat burning ingredient. Not only is it a calorie free appetizer but also boosts metabolism since your body has to work to match the temperature of the ingested water with that of your core. According to a study, people drinking 8 to 12 glasses of water in a day have a higher metabolic rate than those who just drink 4 glasses or less. It also aids in weight loss indirectly. This is because drinking a glass of water before meals can fill you up thus preventing you from overeating and consuming extra calories.All these ingredients have many health benefits (only a few listed above), but essentially all help aid in digestion.  This is why I refer to it as the flat belly water. Drinking this infused water will not cause you to retain water. It will cleanse your body and leave you feeling refreshed.Ingredients:

  • 2-3 large lemons, thinly sliced
  • 1 Cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 18-20 mint leaves
  • 1/2 – 1 tbsp ginger, ground
  • 1 gallon of water


  1. Thoroughly wash all fruits and veggies and thinly slice the lemon and cucumber.
  2. Fill container with ingredients and fill to the top with water.
  3. Soak in fridge overnight and enjoy within 2 days.

If you drink a gallon of water on day 1, you can refill it up and let it soak a second night with the same ingredients (just add more ginger).  Mint leaves will start to go bad after about 2 days of soaking.

Drishti , Gaze in Ashtanga Yoga

In Tadasana Teacher Baqer Gaze toward the hand

The withdrawal of the audio sense is brought about by listening toone’s own breath rather than to external sounds. The withdrawal or turning in of the visual sense is practiced through drishti, the attachment of one’s gaze to various focal points. These are:

• toward the nose
• toward the center of the forehead (third eye)
• toward the navel
• toward the hand
• toward the toes
• toward the side
• toward the thumb
• upward

By doing this, one prevents oneself from looking around, which would let the mind reach out. Following drishti, the
practice becomes deeply internal and meditative.

Drishti is also a practice of concentration (dharana), the sixth of Patanjali’s limbs of yoga. If we practice in a
distracted way, we may find ourselves listening to the birds outside and gazing around the room. To perform all of
the prescribed actions — bandha, ujjayi, drishti, and finding proper alignment — the mind needs to be fully
concentrated; otherwise one of the elements will miss out. In this way the practice provides us with constant
feedback about whether we are in dharana. In time dharana will lead to meditation (dhyana).

“One must endeavour to retain all the prana through the mind, in the navel, the tip of the nose and the big toes. Focussing at the tip of the nose is the means to mastery over prana. By focussing on the navel all diseases are removed. The body attains lightness by focussing on the big toes.”

CARBs for Weight Loss

Grains base CARBs:

Cereal-based carbohydrates (carbs) mean the sugars coming from grains like corn, wheat, rice, barley, millet, etc.

Among these, corn & wheat are the worst and most of these grains supplied in markets are genetically modified.
White rice is the 3rd on BAD GRAINS LIST.

And the best grain(carbs) is BARLEY. Even the pearl barley is better than whole wheat because it has a lower glycemic index.

Many diabetic patients do not improve with whole wheat bread either. Whole wheat exerts a high glycemic load & blood sugar levels fluctuate terribly.

A single bread meal per day is best way instead of Three bread / rice meals per day, which is the worst diet; and it is the major cause of most diseases in the modern world, like Diabetes, insulin resistance, blood pressure, food allergies, and WEIGHT LOSS etc.

high-intensity interval training
HIIT islamabad
If you are overweight and are struggling to drop fat, if you are underweight and want to gain muscle mass or even if you are just trying to get rid of that last stubborn layer of fat, this is the work out for you!
Get lean & Sexy , be fit & healthy

With the busy lives people have these days and the kind of environment we live in, everyone wants a quick fix even if it is related to losing those extra pounds. No one wants to spend hours working out at the gym or go on strict diets just to find out after a month that very little has been achieved in terms of weight loss. Fad diets don’t do a thing and it is true that there are no miracle weight loss pills available no matter how much you are willing to pay. But, there is one technique that can really help you get the body you had always wanted. This technique known as HIIT or High Intensity Interval Training is an effective method of exercising and losing weight because it boosts your metabolism and keeps your body burning fat for up to 48 hours following a single workout of 30 minutes.

Many people, especially those who don’t workout regularly are not aware of this technique. But, athletes and sports people use this technique to improve their metabolism and get rid of fat fast before they participate in competitions. In this article, we’ll take a look at what HIIT really is and the reasons which make it the best exercise method for fat loss and better health.

What is HIIT?

High Intensity Interval Training is a method of exercise in which you perform high intensity exercises at short intervals, following which you take short recovery or rest breaks. Whether you are an endurance athlete or a sprinter, this method of exercise can give you great results. This technique can easily be included into any type of training regime such as weight training, rowing, sprinting, climbing and so on. For example, you run with moderate tempo for 2-3 minutes and then sprint for 20-30 seconds. Repeat this for 6 to 10 times and you are done. The idea is to choose exercises where you can make use of the most muscles in your body. When you use this technique for full body exercises, it can really help you achieve your weight loss goals.

A look at the benefits…

There are numerous benefits of HIIT. One of the top benefits is that it lasts only about 20-25 minuteswhich means anyone can get a great workout no matter how busy their schedule is. After all, it is possible for anyone to wake up at least half an hour earlier or take out 30 minutes in the afternoon.

Because HIIT is a tough technique, you will be able to burn more calories in less time. You can benefit greatly from this exercise method as you will be allowing your heart to work close to its maximal rate. With this technique, you burn fat when you workout and continue to burn fat afterwards as well through excess post-exercise oxygen consumption.

Another great benefit is that HIIT can be performed anywhere. Whether it is a swimming pool, a track near your home or extra space in your living room, you can perform high intensity exercise for weight loss and better health. There is absolutely no problem if there is heavy rain or snow and you can’t make a trip to the gym. Just get into your workout gear and do HIIT right at home.

Which Workout Burns The Most Calories

Power Yoga workout with limited rest in between asanas gives you after burn effects
Power Yoga with limited rest in between asanas gives you after burn effects

Afterburn Effect:
Some workouts help you burn calories even after your sweat session is over , even with

POWER YOGA workout with little rest in between the Asanas give the same after burn effect.

Anything that you can’t sustain for more than a minute, give or take workout make more intense ,basically it gets you breathing really hard until you feel like you may collapse—will burn the most calories after you’re finished.

when you do sustainable exercises—that is, anything that you can keep up for several minutes without much difficulty—your body uses a regular amount of oxygen. But when you push yourself to the max, your body uses more oxygen, which it then has to restore later on. And it’s that very oxygen restoration process that burns the calories post-workout, because your body continues to work harder (and your metabolism remains revved) to repair itself.

Most types of strength-training moves create some afterburn, because your body has to work harder while you’re doing them. But it could also be bodyweight moves like squats(chair pose), lunges(or worrier), or jumps. It could even be 30-second sprints.
If you’re looking to burn the most calories after your workout, you have to push yourself pretty hard at some point during your workout. An easy half-hour jog, for instance, won’t get the afterburn effect unless you incorporate sprints in there as well.
