The best product for your hair growth

The hair loss is a common problem for millions of women all over the world. There is nothing special in this – the majority of women are proud of their hair (if not all of them); it’s their attribute of beauty as well. However, bad nutrition and lack of some nutrients, either as using some unnatural products for dying and washing, result in bad conditions for women’s hair. How is it possible to fight this problem? Scientists claim, that there is a group of products, which can resolve this issue.Coconut oil is one of them.

Another smoothie for weight-loss

You have probably noticed, how popular fruits and vegetables smoothies are. They are consumed either by sportsmen, who need more protein in order to grow their muscles; or by women, who need more their fat to get burnt. In this article we describe another smoothie, which can help you lose your weight easily. Its benefit is in its simplicity and a good taste. So, prepare your note and wrote down the recipe.

Everything we need, in order to prepare our smoothie, is a lemon, green apple and grapefruit. All of these components are affordable in any supermarket around the corner, so they are easy-to be-found. The process of preparation of this smoothie is simple as well: just grab 1 piece of each mentioned product and add them to blender with a cup of water. If this mix seems to you a little bit sour, you can add one spoon of honey. The smoothie is ready to drink.

Why you should definitely stop eating in front of TV

It’s a familiar issue, isn’t it? It seems so convenient to watch TV and consume your foods at the same time. However, scientists claim, that such meals are harmful for your organism. In this article we describe, why it is so harmful.

Humans can only pay their attention to one process. If we eat – we point our attention on our meal, its taste, smell and the amount only. If we watch the TV – our brain analyzes, what’s happening there at the screen. So that we can’t follow both processes at the same time.

And if you have a got a choice, what would you pay more attention to – your cereal or a “Friends” series? Of course, the answer is obvious, – you just skip your breakfast, according to your mind. So that the only thing your brain remembers is TV programme, favourite serial episode, advertising, but not the process of your meal having.

As a result, our stomach can’t feel, whether its full or not properly, with no eye contact with your food. So that your organism won’t be able to state definitely, that it’s not hungry, – you just don’t feel nothing. So you continue on eating more, including some snacks, ice-cream or sandwiches into your menu.

The results are awful: nutritionists claim, that such a simple thing, as eating with TV, can bring you to obesity easily. This problem is especially actual if we are talking about the kids, which focus their attention on a TV-show more.

What’s the solution? Spend time with your family. It’s better to sit in silence together or discuss some important news, some plans or even some of your last books, that you’ve read. Believe me, it will bring you much more joy and pleasure, than any TV content.
