    Health Tip of the Day!!-brown-rice-3.jpg


    Brown Rice - Brown rice is rich in selenium which reduces the risk for developing common illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and arthritis.One cup of brown rice provides 80% of our daily manganese requirements. Manganese helps the body synthesize fats. Manganese also benefits our nervous and reproductive systems.

    Naturally occurring oils are beneficial for the body as these healthful fats help normalize cholesterol levels.

    This is one of the best kept secrets regarding brown rice. We usually associate anti-oxidant rich foods with blueberries, strawberries and other fruits and vegetables. The antioxidant capacity of brown rice is right up there with these super stars.


    Brown rice cereal or brown rice itself is the perfect baby’s first food due to the dense natural nutrition and fiber it contains. This is a much better choice than refined white rice cereal products as rapidly growing babies and toddlers require nutrient rich diets to help maintain rapid growth cycles.

    Health Tip of the Day!!-024-egg-benefits.jpg


    Eggs - Eggs are the best source of complete protein which contain all essential amino acids for human body. They helps control the rate at which the body absorbs calories. When managing your weight, choose foods that provide the maximum amount of nutrition for the least amount of calories. Eggs are a great nutritional value for those trying to lose weight and maintain healthy weight.

    Choline, a substance found in egg yolk, stimulating brain development and function. Since it necessary for brain development, but is not produced by our bodies in sufficient amount, a continuous new supply must be provided by our diet. Two large eggs provide the adult with the recommended daily intake of choline.

    Choline is an essential nutrient that contributes to fetal brain development and helps prevent birth defects. Two eggs provide about 250 milligrams of choline, or approximately half of the recommended daily intake for pregnant and lactating women.

    A study found that women who consumed at least 6 eggs per week had 44% less risk of developing breast cancer.

    Lutein and zeaxanthin are antioxidants found in egg yolk and are believed to help improve eyesight and reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration (leading cause of blindness in people over age 65 years) as well as the risk of cataracts.

    Health Tip of the Day!!-jaggery-health-benefits.jpg

    Jaggery - Jaggery is prepared from sugarcane juice without the use of chemicals in its processing and benefits include its ability to cleanse your body, act as a digestive agent, sweeten your food in a healthy manner, and to provide good amounts of minerals.

    Jaggery is less likely to give you acidity when compared to sugar. Even doctors suggest switching over to jaggery when somebody’s having acidity due to sugar.

    Water content in Jaggery provides relaxation to muscles and nerves and it also helps to reduce the water retention in the body and eventually helps in weight loss.

    Jaggery activates the digestive enzymes and itself changes acetic acid into stomach. This speeds up your digestion. The Most important benefit of Jaggery – Can remove all the blood clots from the body of a woman within 40 days after the birth of a baby.
