O2 Spa at Hyderabad airport is sheer bliss

O2 Spa at Hyderabad airport is sheer bliss

Each time I travel by flight, I have passed by the O2 Spa at the Rajiv Gandhi International airport, Hyderabad. But I often give it a miss thinking it’s a small setup and a noisy area to even think of a spa experience. But this time around, I decided to give it a try. When I arrived at their reception aera, I was taken one level down where they have a spacious area. That made quite the first impression. Soon, I was escorted to a seating area where I was put at ease with a glass of water before I told them about the services I was going to avail.

I was escorted to a seating area

Although I love travelling, my feet get tired quickly—a reason why I chose the foot reflexology treatment along with shoulder and neck massage. I am a sucker for pampering services and can tell from the very first touch about the kind of experience that was to come. The therapist who started the massage was courteous enough to ask me if the pressure was okay. She was gentle throughout except at the pressure points. The place was quiet with a glass view of the plane takeoff and landing. It felt as if I was in a different world altogether. It felt very relaxing.

The place was quiet

I was taken to a therapy room for my shoulder and neck massage. The entire session was so soothing that I felt an instant rejuvenation. One of the best ways to tell if you had a good massage is a good sleep. Sure enough, it was! I slept like a baby on my flight to Mumbai. The moment the aircraft touched the ground, I felt I was ready to do my bit of exploring and enjoy my trip.

therapy room for my shoulder and neck massage.

Nothing can alleviate a tired body like a massage. It feels so nice that you feel fresh soon after the massage. Now I sure know where to go. I highly recommend this O2 Spa outlet to every traveller looking for relaxation before embarking on an official or pleasure trip. The best thing about this place is that the staff ask you about your experience even after the service.

A must visit place the next time you are at the Hyderabad airport.

My First Experience With The Unique RapidSteam 2000 Garment Steamer

image-7

 

While the clothes you wear might not be the right way to judge who you are, more often than not they are. It is not what you are wearing that matters, as much as how you carry it off, and let me tell you at the outset that creases don’t make for good first impressions. My job entails me to travel a lot, within the city and outside too. I am in an out of meetings, and it is so important that my hair and makeup is always in place, and my clothes are neat throughout the day. After all, I meet some very important people. While I can take a small break to check on how my hair and makeup is, the real problem is how to keep my clothes crease-free throughout the day. My quest to find a solution, introduced me to the RapidSteam 2000.

At first, I was a bit hesitant to buy it. I wasn’t sure about the quality or the brand. But when I saw that they offered a 100% money back guarantee, if I was not satisfied with the product, I saw no harm in trying it, and I went ahead and ordered the product. It arrived in just about 3 working days, and it was neatly packed in a transparent box. Inside, was this turquoise blue and white handle like object. It had a water pocket, that can hold unto 100 ml of water, and when I switched on the product it heated up in 25 seconds flat. What I was amazed at is how handy the device was. It is small, and it’s German design helps you hold it and work with it, with great ease. I then picked up a crumpled top from the bin of dirty clothes to test. I was static at the results. Even when the iron was about 5 cm away from the piece of cloth, the creases ironed out with a blink of the eye. A top is light, and easy to work with, so I decided to test it out on my trousers. I was happy with the results.

While all this sounds great, it still doesn’t explain what the product is and does. So let me jot down all the pros and cons, so that you can decide for yourself if the device is worth owning or not.

The Minor Negatives 

  1. The Rapid Steam 2000 is sold at Rs. 4999, which at the beginning seems a little too much, but considering how much it can do, it is not a bad price.
  1. The device heats up and then cools down after about 10 minutes of high pressure steam which takes some getting used to.

The Big Positives 

  1. The device is light (approximately 600 grams), portable, and so easy to use. It takes less than two minutes to iron your garment.
  1. It is rechargeable, so you don’t have to keep spending on batteries. This is a one time investment.
  1. The device comes with a 1-year warranty. So you don’t have to worry if it doesn’t work well, you can always get it replaced.
  1. The 30-day money back guarantee is a bonus. You don’t have to worry about not liking the product. If it doesn’t work you can always give it back, and get a 100% refund of your money, no questions asked. (But I am so sure you won’t have to use it, considering how amazing the product is.)
  1. The device comes with a built-in NANO Polymer Filter that purifies the water and softens it. This prolongs the life of the device and reduces the calcium deposits.
  1. The Heat Sync Technology helps the iron to heat up in 25 seconds flat. The high pressure steam lasts for 10- minutes and helps remove even the most stubborn crease.
  1. The Rapid Steam 2000 comes with an in-built EPS or electronic pump system that helps reduce the water spills.
  1. It comes with a 6.5 feet charging cable that makes charging so easy. It has a voltage of 220-240V and a power of 850W.

I think this product is apt for every household. Because not only will it make your daily laundry easier, you can also carry it with you every where. It makes neatness 24X7 a possibility! I would give this product a rating of 8.5/10. You’ve just got to try it to believe it.

What’s Up, Doc?” – Crazy Ways Technology Is Changing How We Interact With Doctors!

FAFE

Way back in 1960, a man named Dashrath Manjhi decided to carve a mountain using just a hammer and a chisel. And 22 years later, the distance between his village and the nearest medical center is 40 kilometers lesser.

As we take a bow to his perseverance, we also look at the changing trends in healthcare today. With the dramatic rise in technology, no mountain can stop you from accessing immediate medical attention. We have apps, websites, etc., that allow you to book a doctor’s appointment online.

You might as well be staying in the remotest of locations – if you are able to read this post living there, you definitely can get medical attention.

 

  1. Economical

In the time when medical attention seems to get perennially expensive, anything that can cut costs is a boon. Coming to that, online consultations and apps are far ahead in the race.

You can store all of your medical records online and access them with a click of a button for future reference.

5 Ways To Lose That Tummy Fat Fast

Ways To Lose That Tummy Fat Fast

You slip into your favorite pair of jeans, suck in your breath, and button in up. As you slowly exhale, your tummy starts to push against the fabric, and the zipper line becomes visible and strained. As always, you ignore the ever-increasing bulge that is threatening to burst out of your pants now, blaming it on the last binging session you went through. Stop! This is not your fault. As we grow older, our metabolism starts to slow down. What used to be effective before is effective no more. So, please stop the self-hate and make these changes to your lifestyle, and you may even have to shop for skinny jeans two sizes smaller!

1. Eat Healthy

 We are not advocating a strict diet where you feel that you are surviving on grass and water. No sir! Just make a better choice every time you stuff something in your mouth. Make deals with yourself – ok, I can have that cupcake if I finish my spinach and broccoli salad. (Most of the times, you will not even want that cake!) Include healthy fats in your diet. Try to get your carbs and protein from healthy sources, like fruits, vegetables, and fish and meat. Try to eat home cooked meals – no matter what you tell yourself, store-bought food is NOT healthy.

2. Drink Water

Drink water. It suppresses the appetite, and makes you eat lesser. Also, most of the times, you wolf down food thinking you are hungry. But, the truth is you are actually thirsty. So, drink, drink, and drink, then drink some more! In addition to fat loss, it will also make your skin clear, pretty, and flawless.

3. Try Supplements

5 Ways To Lose That Tummy Fat Fast

 No, they are not going to cause harm – that’s just a myth. You need certain elements for your body to function like a well-oiled machine. So, don’t ditch those vitamins and mineral capsules, or the much-doubted whey. Some products, such as GCB70, even help to revive your metabolism, facilitating quick weight loss. It burns the sugar and fat in the body and slows down the release of sugar in the bloodstream., thus decreasing your waist circumference effectively. It’s not wrong to give your body a little help to undo all the damage you have done to it all these years.

4. Exercise

Yes, we know. You never had to workout to maintain your weight. But, things change. The theory behind this is the more muscles you build, the easier it will be for you to lose weight. Thanks to a higher metabolism. Cycle, jog, swim, whatever. You can even do yoga. But a little something is required to transform your body and lose that muffin top for good.

5. Drink Green Coffee

 Yes, that’s not a typo! We do mean green coffee – green coffee bean extract that is. It is absolutely amazing. It has strong antioxidant properties and the cholorogenic acids present in it absorb free oxygen radicals in the body and also avert hydroxyl radicals, both of which cause cell degradation. Drinking  green coffee bean extract reduces the blood sugar levels. It also makes you lose weight effortlessly.

Take care of yourself. These steps will help you be a better you, and you will not only look better but feel better as well. There is no reason to suffer the wraths of a slowing metabolism. Combat it and flaunt a 28-inch waist once again!

MamaEarth Product Review

I have used several “safe” baby products for my daughter but always with doubts lurking at the back of my mind and one big question – Is it really safe for my baby? This is quite palpable since it is hard to trust these products that have so many artificial ingredients. In the sea of baby products, I came across something truly natural. This was MamaEarth Baby Care Essentials Combo. A few glances and I purchased the product right away and here I am writing a review on MamaEarth Babycare Products. This wonderful kit comes with essential everyday items needed for your baby’s upbringing and gives you a complimentary travel bag – all that with free shipping. What’s more that now you get a flat 25% discount on its price, which makes it a great value for money at Rs.1799. But what really impressed me about this package was the MadeSafe certification, which is an indicator that the products are baby safe and are made from top quality raw materials. It was the first time I felt convinced of having found a safe baby product for my daughter and purchased it immediately. So how was my experience? Quite good, indeed! 2 Massage Oil Insect Repellent

MamaEarth’s kit has six items made for babies viz. body wash, body lotion, mosquito repellent spray, sunscreen lotion, massage oil, and diaper rash cream. All are made from baby-safe natural ingredients and come in high-quality packaging. When it comes to the products they are just splendid! The thing you notice the moment you unscrew the cap is the total absence of chemical or synthetic fragrance, which you usually get from other baby products. All the products smell pleasantly natural and the lotions are completely non-greasy. I found the sunscreen lotion quite useful when taking my daughter outdoors. It gives you a peace of mind that your baby’s skin is safe from harmful UV rays and that she is protected by a lotion made from natural ingredients.

When it comes to everyday protection of my baby’s skin, then MamaEarth’s moisturizing lotion is just perfect. It leaves my little angel’s skin soft. I use it everyday along with MamaEarth no tear bodywash, which does not have parabens, mineral oil, or petroleum-based products that I fear can cause long-term negative effects on my baby’s delicate skin. The bathing routine is incomplete without some massage, especially before bedtime, and this is where I use the natural massage oil that is a mix of natural vegetable oils. Earlier, I noticed the visible irritation that my baby had to the smell of the products. But MamaEarth’s baby massage oil has no artificial fragrances and my daughter seems to enjoy the relaxing nature of getting a body massage with pure natural oils.

MamaEarth kit also comes with a diaper rash cream and an insect repellent spray. The diaper rash cream is just perfect for the times when your baby wakes up in the middle of the night crying due to the agony of diaper rashes. Scheduled application treats diaper rash completely. But there is something that is more perturbing to a parent than diaper rash and that is the risk of the baby getting bitten by pesky mosquitoes. Taking my daughter for a stroll in the park had become a predicament due to all the mosquitos swarming there but not anymore. Now I just spray some DEET-FREE insect repellent spray on her stroller and on clothes, which is enough to keep the mosquitos at bay.

Lastly, there is the travel bag that I can use to carry my baby’s necessary essential items such as her diapers, bottle, and napkins. All the MamaEarth’s products come in bottles with spillproof lids, which makes portability easy and I carry the kit every time I travel with my baby. It is one product that provides several benefits to the baby in a natural and chemical-free way. What more does a parent need? MamaEarth’s kit worked for my baby and should work for yours, too.

 

Why should you supplement your indemnity cover ‘mediclaim’ with defined cover ‘critical illness’ cover?

We all are at health risk, due to our hectic lifestyles and environment. This is why we equip ourselves, with a health insurance policy. It is the need for financial security, and quality treatment, which convinced us to buy a health risk cover. We know treatment expense in India is skyrocketing now. Even if we suffer from seasonal diseases like dengue or chikungunya, it will cost a lot, if we just consider our hospitalisation expense.

 

But, is your health insurance cover enough? If you have an insurance coverage amount of Rs 10 lakhs for self, is it still enough? We are asking these questions, as this is the right time to reconsider our options. Healthcare in India is making rapid advances, and we should avail maximum benefit of our health insurance cover. We should not be in a ‘compromising’ situation, even when we have a mediclaim policy.

 

Over the past few years, there has been a rise in the number of critical ailment cases. The sad part is that even youngsters are becoming susceptible to these critical diseases, like cancer, heart attack, etc. While critical ailments require specialised medical care, a mediclaim policy has a cap on doctor’s fees, and thus, you won’t get the complete coverage. In such cases, you will have no option but to pay from your pocket. Further, acute illness also means loss of income, disability, and change in lifestyle. Therefore, it is necessary to consider a critical illness (CI) cover.

sd

What is CI cover?

 

CI covers life-threatening conditions under a single insurance policy. Life-threatening risks can be heart attack, stroke, heart surgery, paralysis, organ transplant, kidney transplant, cancer, among others. Under CI cover, the policy beneficiary is entitled to receive the total insurance coverage amount in a lump sum. It is applicable from the time when the insured is diagnosed with a life-threatening condition.

 

How will you benefit?

 

This can be best explained with an illustration. Rahul is a 35 year old married man. His wife Anjali is 30 years old. They have a 2 year-old child. Rahul is living with his father, who is 55-years old.

 

Policy holder and coverCI cover benefits
Rahul has a policy for selfRahul is a busy man, with a hectic lifestyle. As Rahul grows older, he is at high risk of developing life threatening conditions, for example heart disease due to his sedentary lifestyle. If he has a family history of heart disease like his father has suffered a heart attack earlier, then he is at a greater risk. His warning signs will be high cholesterol, high BP, diabetes . He should have a CI cover.

 

If he suffers from chest pain at 38 years, then consider this:

 

His consultation fees to hospital will be Rs 800 onwards. This is not covered in his hospital package expense covered under standard health insurance policy.

 

Total cost of his treatment will be much higher. If he requires a stent, it will cost him Rs 3-5 lakh. The conservative estimate for his hospital stay will be Rs 10,000/day in a good private hospital.

 

His expense (15 days hospital admission) will look like:

Rs 800x 6= 4,800

Rs 5 lakh

Rs 10,000×15= 1,50, 000

Medicine, post treatment expense, doctor consultation should be added.

 

Rahul is likely to incur close to Rs 15 lakh for his treatment. It’s a life-long disease.

 

Standard policy will not cover this huge amount.

 

Exact benefits of CI cover (of Rs 30 lakh) will include-

ü  Payment of Rs 30 lakh when Rahul is diagnosed with a health problem

ü  Even if Rahul does not need a heart surgery, he is entitled to the whole amount

ü  Rs 30 lakh will cover his whole treatment expense and recuperation aids as well

 

A standard insurance policy will not include-

ý  Lump sum Payment of Rs 30 lakh. It is very unlikely that Rahul will have Rs 30 lakh as insurance coverage for self. At max, he might have Rs 12-15 lakh

ý  Even then, only his hospitalisation expense will be covered, which will be less than his actual treatment cost

 

Who requires a CI cover?

 

Two new reports by the Indian Council of Medical Research estimate that the number of cancer patients will increase to 1.7 million by 2020.

 

Taking the above illustration forward, Rahul will require a CI cover in addition, if

  • Rahul is planning to have a second child. His wife is 30-years old, has a family history of breast cancer, then he requires it on priority
  • Rahul is growing older. He has a family history of heart risk
  • Rahul’s father is an old-age man, and at increased health risk. He should necessarily have a CI cover, considering his father’s exact health condition now

 

 

Consider the following before buying a CI cover

 

Exact coverage offered by your insurance company; more specifically the list of diseases covered.

Opt for long policy tenure, to enjoy lifelong benefit. You never know when bad health strikes you. You should be financially prepared at any time in life. Also, opt for a large insurance coverage amount. Consider, inflation costs, since this is a long-term cover.

How to Take Garcinia Cambogia

Losing Weight with Garcinia Cambogia

Eat healthy and get active. Taking this supplement alone will not cause you to lose weight unless you also change your diet and increase your level of physical activity. You don’t necessarily need a special diet. Eating nutritious meals and snacks throughout the day is a great place to start. You should also remove sweets, processed food, and sweetened soft drinks in order to lose weight.

  • You don’t need to start running marathons to get active. Start with smaller steps that will increase your activity level, help you move around more, and keep you healthy. Begin with walking, gardening, hiking, swimming, playing golf, or playing tennis. Then, work your way up to higher level activities.

Avoid high fiber foods. There have been no scientific studies to date that prove garcinia cambogia can help you lose weight. But, a number of studies have suggested that if you use garcinia while avoiding certain foods, you may increase your weight loss, especially around your waist. You should limit your intake of high fiber foods, particularly around the time you take the garcinia.

  • This means you don’t want to eat the high fiber foods with every meal because you take garcinia 30-60 minutes before meals. To get your daily fiber intake, eat high fiber snacks outside of this window.
  • These snacks include nuts, granola bars, kale chips, fruit, especially those with edible rinds like apples, cherries, and plums, and raw vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, and celery.

Limit fatty or sugary foods. You should also avoid foods that have too much fat or too much sugar. This includes fast food, chips and dips, cakes, pies, bacon, mayonnaise, candy, and chocolate. These all have a high fat or sugar content, and some of them have both.

  • You should also limit you intake of breads, potatoes, pasta, and sauces thickened with wheat flour.
  • Focus more on fish , lean meats such as turkey, chicken, and lean beef, and leafy green vegetables such as spinach and arugula.

Understanding the Risks of Taking Garcinia Cambogia

Recognize the side effects. The reported side effects for garcinia cambogia include dizziness, dry mouth, headaches, an upset stomach, and diarrhea. If you see any of these signs after taking your supplement, stop taking it until you can see a doctor.

  • Garcinia has not been tested in children, in pregnant women, or on women who are breastfeeding. The use of garcinia in these women is not recommended.

Understand drug interactions. There are reports that garcinia may interact poorly with certain medications. These include medications for asthma, allergies, and diabetes. According to the reports, the garcinia make these drugs less effective.

  • It may also interfere with blood thinners, psychiatric medicines, pain medicines, iron supplements, and statins, which are drugs used to lower cholesterol.
  • Consult your physician if you are using any of these medications before starting garcinia.
  • If you experience any of these side effects, immediately stop taking the garcinia and contact your physician for advice.[

Be aware of a serious risk. Garcinia is believed to increase serotonin levels and when taken with antidepressant medications called SSRIs, can lead to serotonin syndrome. With serotonin syndrome, the levels of serotonin are much higher than normal. This can lead to neurologic symptoms such as stuttering, restlessness, agitation, loss of coordination, and hallucinations. It can also cause an increased heart rate and blood pressure, fever, and diarrhea.

  • There has been a single case reported of a woman who was taking garcinia along with the class of antidepressant medications called SSRIs. She developed the neurological symptoms of serotonin syndrome. If you experience any of these symptoms, stop taking any supplement and contact your healthcare professional immediately.

Understanding Garcinia Cambogia

Know the origins. Garcinia cambogia is a tropical fruit native to Indonesia. It is also known as brindleberry, Malabar tamarind, and kudam puli. It looks like a small, light green pumpkin and is used in Indonesia for cooking. It has a sour taste.

Learn the benefits. Garcinia contains a type of citric acid, hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which appears to encourage weight loss by regulating the release of serotonin and the uptake of blood sugar. It also increases the oxidation of existing fats and decreasing the synthesis of new fat. While it is not very clear yet, this may mean that Garcinia may increase the biochemical use of fats for energy and decrease the amounts of new fat that is made.

  • Serotonin is a type of neurotransmitter, which is a chemical messenger between nerves and other types of cells. It is related to feelings of happiness, moods, and a sense of well-being
  • Studies have been conducted to determine whether garcinia supplements encourage weight loss in people who are overweight, and the results have not been clear cut. The upshot is that concentrated Garcinia may help people lose weight, especially when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. But there is no scientific evidence showing it actually has an effect.

Know the issues related to supplements. Since garcinia is dietary supplement, it is not subject to review by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This means that the FDA cannot approve garcinia according to its health and safety standards.

  • Always use caution when taking dietary supplements, and be sure to check with your doctor before use.
  • Whenever buying a supplement, make as certain as possible that the company follows Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and has been in business for some time.
  • Check out the company website. They should state that they follow GMP and should have some information about the company, their philosophy, and their company mission.
How-to-take-garcinia-cambogia-pills2

Taking Garcinia Cambogia

Learn the correct dose. From some early studies, a safe dose of Garcinia appears to be up to 2800 mg per day. But, it’s not known what may happen if you take these amounts, so you should stay well below that dose.[12] Once you have found a good place to buy the supplement, you need to understand how much of the HCA you need to take. The dose of HCA should be about 1500 mg per day, though this varies from supplement to supplement.

  • Make sure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions and you consult a knowledgeable healthcare professional before starting.

Take garcinia as a pill. Garcinia comes in two different forms. The first is a pill form, either in a tablet or capsule. If you buy the supplement as a pill, take the recommended dosage of garcinia as a tablet or capsule with water. Take the pill about 30-60 minutes before each meal.

  • In general, garcinia is taken three times a day. This means that each pill should be 500 mg. That way, you stay within your daily dosage suggestions.

Consider liquid garcinia. The second form that you can take of garcinia is liquid. The liquid form of garcinia usually recommends taking 1-2 drops before every meal, but the amount can vary based on the dropper or concentration. Take the drop or drops under your tongue and let them stay for a minute or so. Then, have your regular meal 30-60 minutes later.

  • Before you take the liquid form, ask your pharmacist or a knowledgeable healthcare professional how much garcinia is in every drop for the particular kind you have. You should also ask how many drops would equal a total of about 1500 mg of garcinia every day. Once you have the total number of drops, divide that by three and take that amount before each meal.

 

 

7 Things Healthy People Do That Really Make a Difference

depositphotos_79584398_m-2015-1

New Year resolutions are easier made than done. Most of us unconsciously get back to our old ways sooner than we anticipate. And the root cause of us not being able to shake off these habits is our poor lifestyle choices. Ever wonder what you could achieve if these bad habits were weeded out? A lot more than what you have now, right? Today, I will tell you how you can change your life in just two steps. First, stop daydreaming about your achievements and avoid wasting time on revisiting your resolutions. Secondly, practice the below mentioned steps as a ritual till they become your habits and a part of your daily life.

1. Sleep Tight, Wake Up Bright

Sleep is the most important thing, we all can agree on that. We love to sleep, but still, some of us don’t get enough sleep. The mantra is to get 6-7 hours of sound sleep to rejuvenate your body, mind, and soul. Make your bed nice and cozy and crawl into it after 2-3 hours of having dinner. You can listen to soft and soothing music or read a book to help you relax. Wake up early to workout and eat breakfast before you head out to take on the world.

2. Skip Fasting, Not Breakfast

One of the advantages of waking up early is you will get time to prepare a wholesome breakfast. Breakfast is fuel for your brain, muscles, and internal organs. Having a healthy breakfast like oats is the key to a healthy body. Oats are rich in vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber. They help to reduce the bad cholesterol levels, enhance your immunity, and keep you full for a longer period. Since they are low in calories, they also help you manage your weight. Try the healthy Horlicks Oats with fruits and nuts to boost the nutritional quotient in your bowl and it takes as less as 5 minutes to cook.

3. Workout, Don’t Fade Out

Now, who doesn’t want to look young and stay fit for as long as possible? In fact, research shows that working out regularly can slow down the aging process. Choose a convenient time to workout daily to build muscle mass, lose fat, and build bone strength. Working out can also improve mental health and release “feel good” hormones, which will help you stay positive.

4. Drink Water, Waste Not

We lose water through sweat, urine, stools, and breathing. Drink 2-3 liters of water every day to keep your cells hydrated so that the body can function properly. Water aids proper bowel movement, blood circulation, and maintains homeostasis and organ function.

5. Take A Break Before Breaking A Leg

Like a clogged drainage doesn’t work, a mind with too much to worry about doesn’t function properly. Take a break every once in a while to give your mind the chance to flush out worries. Travel, play a sport, join a dancing class, paint, play your guitar, and learn new things.

6. De-stress With Yoga, Not Movies

Switch off all electronic devices and stay away from all sources of radiations as much as possible. Choose a quiet place and de-stress by practicing yoga. Take the example of Jared Leto, who swears by the powers of yoga. He doesn’t look his age and is tremendously successful in life. Since stress is the main reason for many diseases and medical conditions these days, combat it to live a peaceful life. Yoga helps us to relax and therefore cures stress-induced health conditions.

7. Quit Smoking And Drinking Too Much, Live

It is not really worth doing things that we are told not to do, especially smoking and drinking too much alcohol. Too much free oxygen radical build-up can damage your DNA, alter the cell’s functions, and damage the organs. The worst part is, you will probably transfer your mutated genes to your offsprings. Quit smoking and drinking too much alcohol. Live to fulfill your dreams.

New Year symbolizes a new beginning, a second chance, and limitless possibilities. Times gone by won’t come back, but you can definitely make your future better by taking baby steps today. Have a very healthy, happy, and happening New Year. Take care!

15 Reasons Protinex Is The Best Protein Supplement

gsja
It often becomes a burden to choose the best out of so many options, especially when all of them claim to be the best. Let me clarify. I had been working out regularly, and I was very happy with the amount of weight I lost. But it also left my skin sagging. My trainer suggested that I take protein supplements and include a lot of protein-rich foods in my diet.

Though I started eating a lot of protein-rich foods, I did not get the desired results. This was probably because I am a vegetarian and was not getting other amino acids required by my body. Since eating non-vegetarian food was not an option for me, I started looking for a protein supplement that would help me build lean muscle mass and make my body look more toned.

So, one day, I was driving back home when big hoardings of Protinex and Ensure caught my eyes. After reaching home, I looked them both up on the internet, and this is what I found.

1. Protinex has been in the Indian market for more than 50 years.
2. It is the No.1 doctor prescribed protein supplement powder in India.
3. It is one of the most trusted protein supplement brands in India.
4. Protinex has lower calories (367 kCal) as compared to Ensure (410 kCal).
