HOW POLLUTED IS YOUR HOME?

It is very important to have a check of the air quality inside our workplace or our homes because we spend most of our time residing in either. A typical home has lots of different sources of pollution;heating,cooking,cleaning,smoking,perfumes and furnishings. Even the simple act of moving about stirs up particles. Demands to improve the energy efficiency to buildings comes with the concern that more airtight homes could have an adverse effect on indoor air quality.  Very polluted air is infested with large concentrations of PM2.5, carbon dioxide and harmful gases,with long-term health implications. The CO2 concentration of a typical air-conditioned closed-door bedroom used by two people peaked at about 3000ppm. This is almost five times the permissible limit,and people breathe this air all night.  HOW TO FIX IT-  Indoor House plants not only serve as great home decor,but they also have the ability to remove indoor toxic pollutants such as benzene and formaldehyde. One can also have a kitchen garden or a small garden space by the windows that eliminates the harmful elements present in the air giving way to fresh air.  Rather than buying plastic products,opt for recycled ones that are now 100% organic. Encourage everyone to consume limited sources of energy. Turn off electronic devices when not in use, switch off lights,ac’s and fans when not in the room. Maintain indoor humidity below 50% to prevent mold growth. Remove carpets. Remove shoes at the door. Avoid smoking indoors. Minimize air freshener use.  Fix water levels. So this concludes that the quality of indoor can be 2-5 times more polluted than the worst outdoor air. 60% of indoor air quality issues are related to ventilation.  . 

Align Your Diet with Exercise Regimen for Best Results

Exercise and nutrition are twp peas in a pod. The quality of nutrition impacts performance, recovery, immunity, hormones and even the results we are striving for. The most common mistake people commit is considering food as a reward, forgetting that 70% results depend on nutrition and the remaining 30% on exercise, sleep or the lack of them and your level of stress. For example- while eating that cupcake might seems harmless, eating processed sugar post workout triggers somatostatin release that blocks the human growth hormone ( necessary for lean muscle),…

The Right Antioxidants for the Brain

Vitamin E- vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant, which is very important in the protection of brain and peripheral nerve cells. Vitamin E is able to cross through the blood brain barrier, but it does not have some difficulty. Researchers have to use very high doses of vitamin E in supplementation in order to increase the level of vitamin E in this area of the body.
