If you’ve been on any social platform at any point in the last few years, you’ve probably seen the word meditation mentioned a few times. You’ve probably heard about how great meditation is for you and maybe even how it benefits your body, mind, and soul. But how great is meditation? How do you get started? Isn’t meditating just about being in deep thought about something? The art of meditation is easy but the task of quieting your mind can take years to master. Keep at it! You’ll not only find inner peace, but there’s scientific evidence that backs up the fact that meditation slows the aging of your brain. The Purpose of Meditation Meditation is a word defined and used in many ways. The thought of meditation is often mystifying and confusing for the person embarking on this journey. The goal of meditation is to free the mind of any mental disturbance, but NOT going blank. Since the mind is designed to think many thoughts at once, meditation’s goal is to focus on a single idea. Being mindful of your mind and soul, essentially the thoughts you’re allowing and how you allow them, can produce a state of awareness and knowledge that you were not able to tap into before. You can find a calm and lasting effect that you’ve never known. All it takes is silencing your mind and finding that inner peace. Meditation Decreases Depression Students who practiced an at-home meditation program reported significantly reduced indications of anxiety, stress, and depression up to six months later. These same students were also less likely to develop symptoms of depression. University of California conducted a study made up of patients with past depression, concluding that mindfulness meditation decreases dysfunctional beliefs and ruminative thinking. Practicing mindful meditation has also been shown to increase bonding with a mother-to-be and her expected baby if done over a few weeks span. This mindfulness and bond can exponentially decrease the chances of postpartum depression later on. Mindful Meditation Can Improve Information Processing and Decision Making Studies have shown that long term mediators have vast amounts of gyrification, which is a “folding” of the cortex that may allow the brain to process information faster. These studies have shown far less of this “fold” in people who do not meditate. If you feel that you’re suffering from a disorder like ADD or ADHD, meditation may be something you should try before prescribed medication. Scientists theorize that gyrification is responsible for making the brain more efficient at processing information, forming memories, making decisions, and improving attention. Meditation Can Make You More Tolerant of Pain A research group from the University of Montreal conducted an experiment in which 13 Zen masters and 13 comparable non-practitioners were exposed to equal degrees of painful heat while measuring their brain activity in a fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) scanner. What they discovered is that the Zen meditation practitioners reported less pain than their neurological output from the fMRI indicated. So, even though their brain may be receiving the same amount of pain input, in their mind there is actually less pain.

Cooking Oils You Think Are Healthy But Arent Mevolife

The topic of health is everywhere…on the internet, television, magazines, the newspaper. Everything from “kale is the new super food” to “drink apple cider vinegar every morning to burn fat.” Information is everywhere on latest fad diets to what are the healthiest cooking oils. Misconceptions fill the Internet air. To determine what the best is in anything, it helps to know what the worst is in anything. Take cooking oils, for example. I’m not here to tell you what the healthiest ones are. You can find that anywhere. I’ll tell you what the worst five cooking oils are, and why, so that you’ll know what not to buy as you start including healthy food choices in your diet plans. Let’s Talk About Why It Matters When determining the healthy quality of cooking oils, you must take into account: how it affects heart health, the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids, and how it is processed. Getting too much omega-6 in your diet causes clogged arteries, inflammation, heart disease, and increases your risk of cancer. The world health organization (WHO) recommends a ratio of 4:1 for omega-6 to omega-3. That means that every food you eat that contains omega-3 fatty acids, you need to eat no more than 4 times the amount of omega-6 fatty acids. Remember: too much omega-6 in your diet is bad. You can improve your health by eliminating processed foods from your diet. Autoimmune responses to chronic inflammation caused by processed foods are being linked to processed foods. Diseases like asthma, allergies, cancer, heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes rise as the consumption of processed foods rises. Get rid of them! What Cooking Oils Should You Avoid and Why? Grapeseed Oil: About 70% omega-6 fatty acids. Remember what we just talked about? Too much omega-6s in your diet causes inflammation, the true cause of heart disease and can lead to other health conditions. Grapeseed oil is industrially processed with hexane and other toxic solvents. Traces of these chemicals are always left behind in the final product. An expeller-pressed processed grapeseed oil is full of polyunsaturated fat, in concentrations highly toxic to humans. No matter how pure, they are never safe. Canola Oil: About 87% is genetically modified. You know how canola oil is created? Using crude oil extracted from rape seeds, then refined, bleached, and deodorized. Because it is processed under high heat, it goes rancid. Because it is prone to rancidity, industrial carcinogenic bleaches are used, with a mixture of hexane to deodorize. Canola Oil is high in omega-3s, but don’t let that deceive you. These oils are subject to oxidation when heated. Oils high in omega-3s are never used for cooking. Flaxseed oil and fish oil are high in omega-3 and are never heated because they are prone to oxidation. Free radicals are released when an oil oxidizes, which leads to inflammation, cancer, thyroid damage, and hormonal imbalances. Vegetable/Soybean Oil: About 99% of vegetable oil is actually soybean oil. Next time you look at a bottle in the store, read the ingredients. You’ll most likely only see one: soybean oil. Soybean oil contains 54% omega-6. Remember what we said before? Too much omega-6 equals bad news. It can lead to inflammation and other health issues. Soy is high in trypsin inhibitors and phytic acid, which blocks the absorption of proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Soy also contains phytoestrogens, which mimics estrogen in your body and disrupts normal hormonal activity and could increase your risk of cancer. So now that you know what not to buy, and why, here’s a quick list of the healthiest oils to use for cooking: Coconut comes in at number one, with 92% saturated fat, 6% monounsaturated, and 1.6% polyunsaturated. Butter (ghee), olive oil, palm oil, avocado oil, fish oil, flax oil, and nut or peanut oil are all great choices. Download Mevo app now from – Google App Store     iOS Play Store ...

Health Benefits of Water Kefir the New Soda Mevolife

The more I watch television or read online, the more aware of the term probiotics I become. Jamie Lee Curtis and Activa have been talking about it for years. But what do you really know about probiotics, other than the snippets you get on ads and tv commercials? What do you know about probiotics in water kefir, specifically? Water kefir…ah…that’s a new one, I bet. Water kefir is hitting the Internet waves much the same way kombucha or milk kefir is. They all originate from living grains or fungus. They need fermentation for the healthy properties that many seek when drinking. Water kefir junkies also live for the fizz. Water kefir is a healthy alternative to soda. The fountain never runs dry once you learn the art of making it. And it really is that easy: grains, water, and sugar. That’s it. Let’s talk about what water kefir is and why it’s good for you. What Is Water Kefir? Water kefir is said to have originated in two places, so it’s up to you to decide which version you want to believe. It is generally believed that water kefir got its beginnings in Mexico, thriving in the sugary water of the Ountia cactus (prickly pear). Others believe it started further back in Tibet when monks gave the grains to Mother Teresa of Calcutta. The word kefir comes from the Turkish word and means “feeling good.” Water kefir is a mild, zesty sugar-water beverage often compared to a natural, refreshing soda, and perfect for everyday drinking. Ferment at room temperature for 24-48 hours with fruit or lemon, and that’s it, sugary goodness to drink for a probiotic pick-me-up. Kefir has a low glycemic index and is caffeine free. Is Water Kefir Healthy? Kefir is loaded with digestible sugars, valuable enzymes, and beneficial acids, minerals, and vitamins. It supplies your body with tons of healthy bacteria and yeast. Unlike kombucha (made with tea) water kefir is caffeine free. How are bacteria beneficial? Your body is made up of billions of bacteria and yeast that support internal microflora support for digestion. Your body needs a healthy dose of probiotics to fight off bacteria, viruses, and yeast, which kefir provides. Research is also proving that kefir may be anti-mutagenic and help manage free radicals. The longer the drink is fermented the more folic acid and B vitamins are produced within. Drinking kefir may help reduce cholesterol and blood pressure. Kefir is proving beneficial to many, from improving digestion, building immunity from colds and viruses, and boosting energy. Besides the health benefits, many are drinking just because they enjoy the effervescence of a soda. What Does Water Kefir Taste Like? Water kefir can taste pretty much like you want it to. Do you like pink lemonade? Then make it out of strawberries and lemons. Do you like black cherry? Make simple syrup out of cherries, water, and sugar. Add to kefir and you have a great tasting black cherry soda-feel. Add a splash of vanilla, I like it that way and you will too. Some people make it out of basil and lemon, pineapple, grape juice, or just about anything you can think of. Don’t like what you make? Throw it out and try something different next time. The grains continually replenish, giving you a great, healthy alternative that is better than any soda anytime.

5 Amazing Benefits of Coconut Milk for Health Mevolife

Now you’ve probably heard that coconut water is good for your health, but did you know that coconut milk is also great for Health ? There are some misconception regarding the healthiness of this miracle drink due to its rich creamy texture and subtle sweetness, but these factors only make it a more delicious health drink than most others. Keep reading to find out why its time to stock up on some coconut milk. 1. It helps you lose fat via coconut milk Although coconut milk has about 14 grams of fat in each serving (quarter cup, full-fat), its MCT or medium-chain triglycerides fatty acids actually help your energy spending, which can augment physical performance. The plethora of nutrients present in coconut milk also helps nourish your muscles, which can help in muscle building following your regular workout routine. The good kind of fats in coconut milk also helps you stay full for longer, which serves as a preventive measure for your tendency to overeat. Building muscle and helping you to control your intake are essential factors in losing body fat, which are enough to encourage you to consume coconut milk regularly. 2. Coconut milk helps with constipation Coconut milk helps with the nourishment of the digestive tract due to its high nutrient and electrolyte content. It is also known to relieve indigestion and constipation in individuals, as it promotes healthy bacterial growth in the colon. 3. Aids in blood sugar regulation Diabetics can also benefit from coconut milk as its fatty substances decelerate the sugar release rate in the bloodstream, which facilitates better insulin control in the patients’ bodies. Coconut milk is a great alternative in milk-based recipes and desserts due to its healthy richness and sweetness which are better for the body than added sugars. 4. It is good for your heart? The fat content of coconut milk is essentially 50% lauric acid, a fatty acid which is associated with cholesterol levels improvement, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. Studies were able to back up the claim of coconut milk’s cholesterol level improvement, as clinical trial results determined that individuals who took coconut milk had decreased LDL/bad cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein) levels and had amplified levels of good cholesterol or HDL (high-density lipoprotein). This assures the general population that although coconut milk is “fatty”, it is not the bad kind, but rather beneficial than damaging. The mineral content of coconut milk can also help you lower your blood pressure, increase your blood vessel flexibility, and prevents plaque build-up, which contribute to greater heart health. 5. It aids in ulcer prevention Coconut milk is also known to prevent the formation of ulcers and in reducing ulcer size. This can be attributed to coconut milk’s shielding effects on the ulcerated regions, which prevents pain in the area. This action of coconut milk is even better than coconut water’s ulcer preventive mechanism. Ideally, you should be looking for the organic or “cold pressed” coconut milk and avoid anything with added sugar, salt, preservatives or any other nasty chemical you don’t want in your food.

Summer is upon us and with it, our desire to be beach-ready. That will have many of us reaching for the juicer and going through a course of “detoxicating”. After all, isn’t our normal diet full of toxins? It only makes sense that we clean our body and, hopefully, lose weight along the way. We will be healthy and fit. Right? Not really. True, that is what many companies would have you believe because “healthy detox” programs are all the rage and they don’t show any sign of slowing down (not to mention that it’s good for their pocket). However, over the past few years, scientists have debunked “the myth of the detox” and according to the American Journal of Medicine there is “no strong scientific evidence to support these benefits”. Our body is quite amazing and in fact we already have an effective detoxicating system in place – our kidneys and liver. If they function properly, we don’t need to worry about any other type of cleansing. So what about all those juices? They seem to be promoted everywhere, and ultimately, is it better to drink vegetables rather than to eat them? Drinking vegetable juices can help you increase your veggie intake, along with the vitamins and minerals that accompany them (especially if you are one of the many people who do not eat enough leafy greens in their regular diet). However, it’s important to remember one thing: when you make a juice, you remove most of the fiber. We have discussed previously why fiber is an important ingredient for weight loss but it also has many other health benefits. Fiber is the carbohydrate that helps you control the levels of blood sugar in your system. It slows down the rate of the food digestion and consequentially, balances how fast sugar gets into your bloodstream. This also controls hunger which means that if you ingest enough fiber, you would feel full for a longer period of time. That said, a fresh vegetable juice will have sugar but no fiber which will cause your body to experience a blood sugar spike. This can lead to many negative effects such as insulin imbalance, skin outbreaks (in people who have acne-prone skin) and many more. What can you do? Simply substitute the juice for a fresh vegetable. That way you will receive all the nutrients without any of the fuss. Tips & Tricks If you have your heart set on drinking vegetable juices, consider the following healthy tips: – Add a little whole milk to the juice – to slow down the release of sugar, so that there are no sugar spikes; – Drink such juices twice a week – to avoid any lasting harmful effects; – Drink such juices 20 min before or 2 hours after meals – to help your digestive system process them. So are vegetable juices good or bad for you? If you are a healthy person, there won’t be any harmful effects (considering you drink them in moderation) but it would still be more beneficial if you just eat your veggies. They are delicious! How about you create your own glass of juice with your favorite veggies? Checkout the first ever Juice Maker which makes it easy to get choose your veggies, blend them into a juice and log it into a diary.

The weekend is here. Yes, it is my favorite part of the week & am pretty sure yours too. Fridays are meant for friends, especially the closed ones.

Now that the weekend is over, we all need to get back on track with healthier eating. Although I did fairly well by avoiding most of the bad food, I just ate more than I should have. Like most people, I want to improve my health this year and for this I have chosen the KETO DIET. Improving health also means eating better, reducing stress, and becoming more active. Another thing I want to work on is spending less time in the kitchen, you know how it gets so tiring to cook every day of the week. I also have a habit of snacking more than I should. I’m one of those people who has a hard time refraining when I see anything to nibble on. So, I just need to clear the food out of my sight and getting out of the kitchen will surely help with that. The best way to deal with this mess is have a soup dinner (made in a crockpot) from my few of the favorite KETO RECIPES. Use a crockpot, few ingredients (but substantial ones) and let the magic of slow cooking begin. Crockpot cooking really gives you a lot of extra time in hand to do other stuff rather than just standing in the kitchen and munching on tit bits while the food is made. It lets you free and allows you to have some quality time with everyone at home. You only need 4 ingredients to make this ridiculously easy crock pot Mexican low carb KETO CHICKEN soup. Ingredients 1 1/2 pounds chicken pieces boneless/skinless 15.5 oz chunky salsa 15 oz chicken broth 8 oz Monterey or Pepper Jack cheese cubed small or shredded Method 1. Place chicken pieces at the bottom of a 6 quart crock pot. 2. Add remaining ingredients. 3. Cook on high 3-4 hours. 4. Remove chicken pieces and shred chicken. Return to crock. 5. Serve hot.
