What Is The Correct Time Of The Day To Drink Water? - See more at: http://www.naturalcuresandhomeremedies.com/what-is-the-correct-time-of-the-day-to-drink-water/#sthash.XIv00MQ7.dpuf

What Is The Correct Time Of The Day To Drink Water? -

Drink water when you get up
Drink a glass of water as soon as you wake up, to inform your body that it’s time to start with active work.what-is-the-correct-time-of-the-day-to-drink-water
The circulatory system requires liquid to get rid of free radicals and the remains of the burned calories which were used by the metabolism during the night. Also, drinking lemon water in the morning is very beneficial for your body.
Drink water before each meal
Drinking water before each meal will help you feel satiety, so that you will need less food to feel full. Water helps your stomach to prepare for food that will follow, awakens the senses of taste on the tongue and moisturizes the stomach. In addition, drinking water before meals eliminates the flavors from previous meals, the taste of some other drink, or the taste of a cigarette from your mouth.
A glass of water with snacks
Between meals, if you feel hungry, first try to drink some water, because you may also feel hunger if you are a little dehydrated as well. Sometimes people think they are hungry when they are actually thirsty. Drinking water before snacks, or along with your snacks will make you feel full faster and you will eat less, a habit that can help anyone who has problems with the increasing number of pounds.
Drink water before exercise
Depending on the temperature, humidity and fluid levels in your body, you can take one or more glasses of water before you start training in order to avoid dehydration of your body. Whether you are playing a sport, fitness or pilates, hydration is essential, for it will protect you from heat strokes when the weather is hot or will enable you not to freeze when cold. This is due to the fact that your circulatory system plays a protective role in both seasons.
Drink water after exercise
After your workout or any other physical activity, drink plenty of water to restore the body fluids lost during sweating. Do not drink too fast because it can cause stomach cramps, but be sure to drink enough.
Drink water to protect when exposed to a virus
If at work or at school you are surrounded by people who have a cold, drink more water than usual to remove bacteria and viruses that your body has received as a result of the exposure. Well hydrated body helps to evict all the invaders who want to reproduce in your system. Drinking water each day before going out or after you return home will help prevent and reduce viruses.
Drink water when you are sick
When you catch a cold, drink more fluids- this old recipe still works. Most experts recommend drinking eight glasses of water each day, and you can further drink other liquids such as tea, juice and soup. People who are in hospital get fluids to keep their body hydrated and to protect if it needs medications.
Drink a glass of water when you’re tired
When you feel tired or when you need a nap, drink a glass of water. Due to its ability to move quickly in the body, it can reach the brain and activate it when needed, whether it is before an appointment or before any other important activity. Cold water will wake up both, your body and brain.

Why Are You Washing Your Hair The Wrong Way? It Causes Your Hair To…

Are you spending a lot of money and time on your hair and still not getting any near to the perfect hair of the models you see in magazines or TV?
Here is something surprising: you might not really know how to wash your hair the right way!
Using the correct techniques can make a world of difference in your hair’s health, bounce and shine—but if you’re making some common mistakes, you could be damaging your lovely locks without even realizing it.
Washing Your Hair The Wrong Way
We asked two of New York’s foremost hair pros, Kyle White, lead colorist at Oscar Blandi Salon and  hair stylist Nunzio Saviano of Nunzio Saviano Salon in New York and, to share their best tips for lathering up—and doing it the right way.
  • You should start with a rinse.

Just like your laundry needs a rinse cycle before you add detergent, hair should be completely wet before you add your shampoo. This will enable the hot water to open the cuticle, which is good for removing any dirt from the hair.
  •  If you have long hair, condition first and then shampoo.

If your hair is beneath the shoulders long, protect fragile ends from drying out by running a small amount of conditioner through them and lightly rinsing, before any shampooing.  This will not only keep ends healthy, it will fill any holes in the cuticle with moisture, making it smoother and boosting shine,” says White.
  •  Lather up — but only at the scalp.

“You only need to shampoo the hair at the scalp, particularly at the nape,” Saviano says.
The best way to lather up is from roots to ends. The hair closest to the scalp is the youngest and will inevitably be the oiliest, while the end of the hair is the oldest and usually driest, most fragile part of the hair.”
Don’t use more shampoo than you need, a quarter-sized amount of shampoo is enough. If your hair is particularly long or thick, go ahead and double that.
  • Be gentle!

Rubbing can permanently damage your hair’s cuticle, leading to breakage and frizz. Try to wash your hair like you hand wash your delicates — very carefully.
  • Don’t rinse and repeat.

Despite what the instructions on the back of your shampoo bottle may say, there’s no need to wash your hair twice.
“Avoid stripping the hair by doing one shampoo only, which is usually sufficient,” says White. “Unless the hair is extremely dirty and the first shampoo didn’t produce lather,” in which case, go ahead and lather up one more time.
  • Add conditioner from the mid-lengths to the tips.

After you’ve rinsed out your shampoo, “squeeze some of the water out of the hair before you put in the conditioner,” says Saviano.
“Then clip your hair up and finish showering, leaving the conditioner rinse out for the final step of your shower.”
The longer the conditioner stays on your hair, the better it absorbs. Don’t put conditioner at the roots of your hair; the natural oil from your scalp is more concentrated there.
  •  Finish with a cold water rinse.

“Cold water will shut the cuticle tight, sealing the shingle-like outer layer, which will cause it to reflect the most light and give off the most shine,” says White.
More Hair Washing Tips…
How often you wash your hair depends on your hair type, too. If you have oily or fine hair, you may need to shampoo daily. Normal or dry hair can lather up closer to three times a week.
Use a shampoo and conditioner that’s made for your hair type. If your hair is dry, choose moisturizing products. If you color your hair, opt for color-safe formulas.

New York Attorney General Targets Supplements at Major Retailers

Health supplements on display at Walgreens in Times Square in Manhattan.
The New York State attorney general’s office accused four major retailers on Monday of selling fraudulent and potentially dangerous herbal supplements and demanded that they remove the products from their shelves.
The authorities said they had conducted tests on top-selling store brands of herbal supplements at four national retailers — GNC, Target, Walgreens and Walmart — and found that four out of five of the products did not contain any of the herbs on their labels. The tests showed that pills labeled medicinal herbs often contained little more than cheap fillers like powdered rice, asparagus and houseplants, and in some cases substances that could be dangerous to those with allergies.
The investigation came as a welcome surprise to health experts who have long complained about the quality and safety of dietary supplements, which are exempt from the strict regulatory oversight applied to prescription drugs.
The Food and Drug Administration has targeted individual supplements found to contain dangerous ingredients. But the announcement Monday was the first time that a law enforcement agency had threatened the biggest retail and drugstore chains with legal action for selling what it said were deliberately misleading herbal products.
Among the attorney general’s findings was a popular store brand of ginseng pills at Walgreens, promoted for “physical endurance and vitality,” that contained only powdered garlic and rice. At Walmart, the authorities found that its ginkgo biloba, a Chinese plant promoted as a memory enhancer, contained little more than powdered radish, houseplants and wheat — despite a claim on the label that the product was wheat- and gluten-free.
Three out of six herbal products at Target — ginkgo biloba, St. John’s wort and valerian root, a sleep aid — tested negative for the herbs on their labels. But they did contain powdered rice, beans, peas and wild carrots. And at GNC, the agency said, it found pills with unlisted ingredients used as fillers, like powdered legumes, the class of plants that includes peanuts and soybeans, a hazard for people with allergies.
The attorney general sent the four retailers cease-and-desist letters on Monday and demanded that they explain what procedures they use to verify the ingredients in their supplements.

“Mislabeling, contamination and false advertising are illegal,” said Eric T. Schneiderman, the state attorney general. “They also pose unacceptable risks to New York families — especially those with allergies to hidden ingredients.”
The attorney general’s investigation was prompted by an article in the New York Times in 2013 that raised questions about widespread labeling fraud in the supplement industry. The article referred to research at the University of Guelph in Canada that found that as many as a third of herbal supplements tested did not contain the plants listed on their labels — only cheap fillers instead.
Industry representatives have argued that any problems are caused by a handful of companies on the fringe of the industry. But New York’s investigation specifically targeted store brands at the nation’s drugstore and retail giants, which suggests that the problems are widespread.
“If this data is accurate, then it is an unbelievably devastating indictment of the industry,” said Dr. Pieter Cohen, an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School and an expert on supplement safety. “We’re talking about products at mainstream retailers like Walmart and Walgreens that are expected to be the absolute highest quality.”

In response to the findings, Walgreens said it would remove the products from its shelves nationwide, even though only New York State had demanded it. Walmart said it would reach out to the suppliers of its supplements “and take appropriate action.”
A spokeswoman for GNC said that the company would cooperate with the attorney general “in all appropriate ways,” but that it stood behind the quality and purity of its store brand supplements. The company said it tested all of its products “using validated and widely used testing methods.”
Target did not respond to requests for comment.
The F.D.A. requires that companies verify that every supplement they manufacture is safe and accurately labeled. But the system essentially operates on the honor code.
Under a 1994 federal law, supplements are exempt from the F.D.A.’s strict approval process for prescription drugs, which requires reviews of a product’s safety and effectiveness before it goes to market.
The law’s sponsor and chief architect, Senator Orrin G. Hatch, Republican of Utah, is a steadfast supporter of supplements. He has accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from the industry and repeatedly intervened in Washington to quash proposed legislation that would toughen the rules.
Mr. Hatch led a successful fight against a proposed amendment in 2012 that would have required supplement makers to register their products with the F.D.A. and provide details about their ingredients. Speaking on the floor of the Senate at the time, Mr. Hatch said the amendment was based on “a misguided presumption that the current regulatory framework for dietary supplements is flawed.”
Critics say it is all too easy for dangerous supplements to reach the market because they are not subject to a review or approval process. Under current law, supplements are assumed to be safe until the authorities can prove otherwise. And in general, they are pulled from shelves only after serious injuries occur — which is not uncommon.
In 2013, for example, an outbreak of hepatitis that struck at least 72 people in 16 states was traced to a tainted supplement. Three people required liver transplants, and one woman died.
It is not only consumers. Hospitals have been affected, too. In December, an infant at a Connecticut hospital died when doctors gave the child a popular probiotic supplement that was later found to be contaminated with yeast. After the child’s death, the F.D.A. issued a warning to the public that reiterated its limited control over supplements.
“These products are not subject to F.D.A.’s premarket review or approval requirements for safety and effectiveness,” the F.D.A. stated, “nor to the agency’s rigorous manufacturing and testing standards for drugs.”
As part of its investigation, the attorney general’s office bought 78 bottles of the leading brands of herbal supplements from a dozen Walmart, Target, Walgreens and GNC locations across New York State. Then the agency analyzed the products using DNA bar coding, a type of genetic fingerprinting that the agency has used to root out labeling fraud in the seafood industry.
The technology allows scientists to identify plants and animals by looking for short sequences of DNA unique to each organism, which can then be quickly analyzed — much like the bar codes on grocery items — and compared with others in an electronic database. The technology can single out which plants a supplement contains by identifying its unique DNA.
Dr. Cohen at Harvard said that the attorney general’s test results were so extreme that he found them hard to accept. He said it was possible that the tests had failed to detect some plants even when they were present because the manufacturing process had destroyed their DNA.
But that does not explain why the tests found so many supplements with no DNA from the herbs on their labels but plenty of DNA from unlisted ingredients, said Marty Mack, an executive deputy attorney general in New York. “The absence of DNA does not explain the high percentage of contaminants found in these products,” he said. “The burden is now with the industry to prove what is in these supplements.”
