The watermelon is a trusty sidekick to have in your diet during the hot summer months. Unlike most super-foods, the watermelon is stark in comparison due to its high-calorie value. There are about 46 calories for every cup of watermelon while blueberries contribute to less than half. So in essence, watermelons need to be taken with a pinch of salt. The other components of watermelon are Vitamin C, Vitamin A and water. The presence of Vitamin A and C is especially beneficial and has a lot of great health benefits.
So this trusty sidekick is definitely going to help you in the summer months. The fruit is essentially made of water, with water forming 92% of the overall composition of the fruit. The high water content prevents dehydration and also prevents you from craving for food because of how full you feel after having a cup of watermelon.
Insulin Growth Factor or IGF is one of the elements that are linked to cancer formation in the digestive tract. Watermelons contain lycopene that is known to control and manage IGF production in the digestive system thereby reducing the risk of cancer formation in the cells within the digestive system. Further research needs to be done to see how watermelon can combat other forms of cancerous formation in other parts of the body. But as of now, watermelons are specific in their combat targets. Lycopene, on the other hand, has other uses as well. One of the major uses of lycopene within the body is to reduce the thickness of artery walls thus improving heart functioning; Watermelon has trace amounts of a lot of minerals and vitamins that help improving blood flow and circulation but nothing as significant.
Inflammations are a big pain, literally. Watermelon contains lycopene and Vitamin C; as separate components, they tend fairly poorly against inflammations, but being mixed together greatly improves their efforts against inflammations and improves the antioxidant levels in the system. Antioxidants are required to manage oxidation stress within the cells. Watermelon does not contain enough antioxidant components to combat DNA damage due to free radicals. But that shouldn’t deter users away from this super-food either; watermelon juice is the perfect post-workout drink that people can consume since the super-food is said to be the perfect solution to muscle soreness.
Unlike other superheroes that you have seen in this list, the watermelon clearly ranks much lower, and that is why we feel the watermelon needs to pair up with another super-food to acquire the best benefits.
Being a young adult can be a daunting proposition, but these are the times to have fun. The most important thing is to know when to draw a line when it comes to fun. A lot of people in their 20s tend to work or go to college during the week and then overdo things during the weekends. The lifestyle choices directly impact how their health will be five to ten years down the line. Here in this article, we look at some of the crazy things young adults do in their 20s that adversely affect them in the long run.
- Binge Boozing
A study recently showed that over 40% of women tend to binge drink during the weekends while men tend to binge drink 50% of the time regardless of what day it is. Right now, all you have to do is nurse a hangover the next day, and you’re sorted. But roll down the years, and the toll could become too big of a task. Drinking stresses the liver and kidneys to a great extent and the entire filtration mechanism. Most people who drink tend to not hydrate themselves appropriately leading to greater stress being placed on the liver and kidneys. It should be noted that the liver takes a considerable amount of time to filter one unit of alcohol; so our advice is that you should take your drinks slowly and you should know your limits. Going over your limits is the biggest problem as the stress that is put on your system greatly increases and more organs tend to become affected as well.
- Social Necessities
Most smokers at one point were social smokers or were people who used to have a smoke while drinking. This association can easily become an addiction and pose a greater threat to the health of the individual. It usually starts off as a few smokes while chilling with friends to a few packs while chilling with friends to a few packs when it is just you. Notice the signs and stop as soon as possible. But if you are far into it then seeking professional help or an alternative is a good choice to make. Social gatherings are also prone to drug use that can easily become an even bigger problem to control and manage.
We have all come through this stage that you are at; the sudden feeling of freedom can leave many astray. We are not going to tell you to stop entirely; we are advising you to be responsible.
Most people who don’t run or are against running will instantly tell you that running is bad for the knees. We are sure you must have heard this argument at some point in your life, or you have at least said so to people who have asked you to run. The truth of the matter is that most gym buffs and athletes will tell you otherwise saying that running doesn’t really affect the knees. But the truth of the matter is both sides have validity, but the valid points are never made. It is true that the knees of people, who run and don’t run, don’t really have much of a difference but the devil is in the details.
Running is one of the best forms of full body workout there is; it focuses on both cardio and core development. It is time to talk about the risks of running; women are the ones who are affected by running more than men. We are not sexist or anything, we are just trying to outlay the facts. Women have an imbalance when it comes to the ratio of quadriceps and hamstring strength; the ratio in the strength of these two muscular structures is important to a number of body functions. Running tends to put a load on this ratio, making the fairer sex about four times more likely to sustain ACL injuries due to overexertion. So if you know a friend who is a woman who does a lot of jogging or if you have just joined the gym to run and burn those calories, it is time to start taking precautions.
Running is only harmful to you if you let it be. To enhance your overall experience and to improve how much you gain from running, you need to strengthen your muscles. So if you have joined the gym and you have not requested for a trainer then indulge in a full body workout at least three days of the week to ensure that your quadriceps and your hamstring are strong. The stronger they are, the less likely it is to sustain ACL injuries. So when the next time someone says running is bad for you, take a moment to pause and see whether you need to include full body workout techniques to improve your core strength before going for a long jog. In this digital age, it is easy to become prey to misconceptions and misinformation; so we recommend that you plan your fitness plan with an expert before starting things out.
