10 BENEFITS OF YOGA

 

1. IMPROVEMENT OF FLEXIBILITY.

Improved flexibility is one of the first and most obvious benefits of yoga. During your first class, you probably won’t be able to touch your toes, never mind do a backbend. But if you stick with it, you’ll notice a gradual loosening, and eventually, seemingly impossible poses will become possible. You’ll also probably notice that aches and pains start to disappear. That’s no coincidence. Tight hips can strain the knee joint due to improper alignment of the thigh and shinbones. Tight hamstrings can lead to a flattening of the lumbar spine, which can cause back pain. And inflexibility in muscles and connective tissue, such as fascia and ligaments, can cause poor posture.

2.MUSCULAR STRENGTH  IMPROVEMENT.

Strong muscles do more than look good. They also protect us from conditions like arthritis and back pain, and help prevent falls in elderly people. And when you build strength through yoga, you balance it with flexibility. If you just went to the gym and lifted weights, you might build strength at the expense of flexibility.

3. YOUR POSTURE BECOMES PERFECT.

Your head is like a bowling ball—big, round, and heavy. When it’s balanced directly over an erect spine, it takes much less work for your neck and back muscles to support it. Move it several inches forward, however, and you start to strain those muscles. Hold up that forward-leaning bowling ball for eight or 12 hours a day and it’s no wonder you’re tired. And fatigue might not be your only problem. Poor posture can cause back, neck, and other muscle and joint problems. As you slump, your body may compensate by flattening the normal inward curves in your neck and lower back. This can cause pain and degenerative arthritis of the spine.

4. FOUNDS A HEALTHY LIFE STYLE.

Move more, eat less—that’s the adage of many a dieter. Yoga can help on both fronts. A regular practice gets you moving and burns calories, and the spiritual and emotional dimensions of your practice may encourage you to address any eating and weight problems on a deeper level. Yoga may also inspire you to become a more conscious eater.

IMPORTANT TIPS ABOUT BELL PEPPERS

Bell peppers, also known as sweet peppers, are a part of the nightshade family, which includes tomatoes, potatoes and eggplant. These less pungent varieties of pepper are available in different colours such as yellow, red, green, purple and orange. The substance ‘capsaicin’ that is known to control spiciness in peppers is found in very small amounts in bell peppers, which makes them less ‘hot’, hence, earned its name as the sweet pepper. Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, sweet peppers are packed with many health-benefiting properties. Here’re 5 health benefits of adding bell peppers to your diet:

1. IMPROVES HAIR GROWTH AND HEALTH
Did you know that applying bell pepper on hair can enhance your hair growth and health? They trigger hair growth through the improvement of blood circulation in the scalp. All you have to do is boil a few dry red bell peppers in water and leave them for 4 to 5 minutes. Once it is cool, massage it on your scalp and leave it for 12 to 15 minutes. Wash off the hair with normal water. The spiciness of bell pepper enhances the growth and health of the hair. Repeat it twice in a week for better results.

2. CARDIOVASCULAR BENEFITS
Antioxidant levels may vary between varieties of bell peppers. Red bell peppers are rich in lycopene, which makes them excellent for a healthy heart, while green bell peppers are known as a good source of cholesterol-lowering fibre. Bell peppers are rich in vitamin B6 and folate, which help to lower homocysteine levels (high homocysteine levels lead to a higher risk of heart disease)

3. ANTI-CANCER BENEFITS
Red peppers have significantly higher nutrient levels than green, including lycopene, which helps to protect against cancer of the prostrate, cervix, bladder and pancreas.” Being rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, bell pepper may provide several anti-cancer benefits. The risk of cancer increases due to chronic excessive inflammation and chronic unwanted oxidative stress. These factors can be offset with regular intake of phytonutrients having antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. As per a study published in the Journal of Food Agriculture and Environment, “Peppers were reported to contain moderate to high levels of neutral phenolics or flavonoids, which are important antioxidant components of a plant-based diet. Flavonoids are reported to possess many biochemical and pharmacological effects, including anti-oxidation, anti-inflammation and anti-allergy. The intake of these flavonoids was reported to reduce the risk of cancer.

4. BURNS CALORIES
It is believed that due to the presence of capsaicin – the substance that boosts our metabolism – bell peppers may enhance weight-loss efforts. Research has shown that capsaicin keeps immature fat cells from developing into full-fledged ones, which supports weight loss. In other words, capsaicin is known to increases our metabolism without increasing the heart rate and blood pressure, unlike its ‘hot’ cousin – red chillies.

5. GOOD FOR EYES SKIN AND BONES
Bell peppers are rich in vitamin A and C, which support healthy eyesight, especially night vision, as well as bones and skin health. They are a rich source of a carotenoid called lutein that helps in lowering the risk of macular degeneration of the eyes. According to the book, ‘Healing Foods’, by DK Publishing, “Bell pepper contains vitamin C, necessary for the synthesis of collagen, the main structural protein in the body that maintains the integrity of blood vessels, skin and bones.”

Bell peppers not just enhance the taste of your food, but can also boost your health. So, add some bell peppers into your shopping basket.
