How Eating Healthy foods can lead to Happiness! Good Health Tips

Everyone talks about how having healthy food can increase your life quality, your body metabolism, increasing lifespan etc. but apart from all these beneficial effects it also increases your productivity and gives you happiness. Consuming healthy foods can be an extremely tough choice at the start but eventually, it will really have better effects and leave you craving more.

Eating healthy includes a balanced diet which consists of the variety of different foods and providing adequate amounts of nutrients required for good health. It gives you the energy to keep going throughout the day and is also helpful for cell growth and repair. Healthy food help you stay strong and healthy and also help in preventing diseases. Deficiencies in vitamins like A, B, C, and E and other elements like zinc, magnesium, selenium etc. can lead to the weakening of immune system and make us more prone to various illnesses.

healthy foods

Reasons why Healthy food makes us Happy:

  • Weight loss

Consuming carbohydrate-rich foods which are usually simple carbohydrates can lead to an increase in weight because our body keeps releasing insulin to metabolize those foods and thus preventing fat cells to metabolize. It increases the number of fat cells for later storage of excess glucose. Healthy foods like quinoa, oats, rice etc. have complex carbohydrates which have more fiber and take a longer time to digest. This ultimately results in lesser cravings and decreases the will to consume again and again leading to weight loss.

  • Anti-aging

Healthy foods like olive oil and fish oils contain omega-3 fatty acids which strengthen skin membranes and help retaining moisture. Blueberries, kale, and spinach have high amounts of antioxidants which protect cell damage done by UV rays. Thus, these foods help in anti-aging.

  • Less stress

Though during stress, we always turn to our comfort food like pasta, chips and other junk they make us more lethargic and decrease our ability to stress. Research says healthier food options like high fiber, carbohydrate-rich foods release serotonin, a hormone that causes relaxation. Chronic stress leads to weakening of immune system and to overcome this, high antioxidants containing fruits and vegetables are beneficial.

  • Better sleep

Better sleep quality can be achieved by taking healthier foods and consuming less during nights. Mostly sleep disturbances and an inadequate amount of sleep is usually due to high intake of sugar, fats, high intake of caffeine before sleep because these cause neuronal disturbances and require more time to digest. Healthier options like eating less during nights, consuming lycopene, vitamin B9, calcium etc. improve sleeping patterns.

  • Better brain and heart health

Eating high-quality foods containing lots of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants nourishes the brain and protects it from oxidative stress (waste-free radicals produced by cells when they use oxygen). Unsaturated or polyunsaturated fats are a healthier option for heart and prevent coronary diseases and low sodium intake prevents the risk of developing a high blood pressure.

All these factors help in maintaining the body health perfectly and when your body functions properly you tend to be happy and radiate that happiness. This leads to clean eating, better habits, positive thinking and more importantly loving yourself. Thus, shifting to a healthy diet is a good choice and helps in making our body a better place.

Is It Possible To Make Yellow Teeth White Again?

It’s a fact that in today’s world people are image conscious and beauty, vanity, looks are of utmost priority. An average person spends an amount of Rs.1000 to Rs.5000/- per month on beauty products or salon services, the cosmetic industries around the world are booming and flourishing. People are willing to spend a fortune on maintaining themselves.

Nowadays there is an awareness among people to maintain their Oral Hygiene than it was a decade or so back. Due to this awareness a person is visiting his or her dentist not just for dental pain but for various other treatment such as “Smile Correction” procedure, “Whitening of Teeth”, Orthodontic procedure for alignment of teeth and the list just goes on.

Now, the most common complaint of a person to a dentist is that he or she has yellow teeth and wants them white again. Having yellow teeth not only affects a person’s appearance but it also affects him mentally or psychologically, the person gets conscious while smiling.

See: Diet for Good Teeth

[su_note note_color=”#d2eef6″]

Now, I’m going to list out some reasons which cause staining and discoloration of teeth but first, we have to understand about staining and discoloration.

In layman’s term staining is defined as colored patches or dirty marks that are not easily removed. It is of 2 types- Extrinsic- This occurs when the outer layer of the tooth (the enamel) is stained. Coffee, wine, cola or other drinks or foods can stain teeth. Smoking also causes extrinsic stains. The second type is Intrinsic — This is when the inner structure of the tooth (the dentin) darkens or gets a yellow tint.

One of the most obvious reasons for staining is poor Oral Hygiene i.e. when people are not taking adequate measures in maintaining their teeth. Incorporating correct and proper brushing techniques along with the use of Dental Floss is more than enough for maintaining oral hygiene. [/su_note]

Any Way to Make Yellow Teeth White Again?

But even after following these methods people still complain of yellow stains. Now one must understand that with growing age the teeth don’t remain as white as they used to be. The shine is lost and this is due to gradual of enamel.

Use of certain drugs and mouthwashes cause brownish staining of enamel.

So the above examples prove that staining of teeth is inevitable and people of all age group wish to have those “pearly white” teeth.

Now, I am going to list out certain methods for whitening of teeth:-

The most convenient and affordable method is by using Toothpastes. The toothpaste of various brands is available in the market which help to attain 3-4 shades whiter teeth.

[su_note note_color=”#f6dfd2″]

Advanced procedure for whitening generally requires the skills of a dentist who does a procedure called “Bleaching”. Nowadays, a dentist can provide bleaching kits to the patient to take it home, But this entirely depends on case to case.

So these Bleaching procedures use chemicals and to avoid the harmful effects of these chemicals people resort to “Natural” methods for Whitening, like

  • Brushing with baking soda; though scientifically it’s not proven that applying baking soda has any effect in whitening.
  • Using Hydrogen Peroxide; also not proven scientifically and there is an added problem of safety as this substance is dangerous and toxic to healthy tissues.
  • Using Apple Cider Vinegar; also not scientifically proven and since it is an acid it has a potential to erode enamel which is again harmful to teeth.

[/su_note]

Therefore one must understand that yellowing of teeth is inescapable but there are ways to curb this problem. It is entirely up to a person to which method he resorts to.
