A humble product named as a powerful natural remedy for high blood pressure

A modest, inexpensive product is a powerful natural remedy for high blood pressure, experts said. In controlling blood pressure, they note the “extraordinary benefits” of pumpkin seeds.

High blood pressure increases the risk of heart attack and stroke, which is why it is very important to prevent the condition of hypertension. What can you do if you find that you have high blood pressure? – Doctors ask a question. Their answer: the first step is to adjust the diet, since it has a significant impact on the state and functioning of the circulatory system.

Experts recall that one proven way to stabilize high blood pressure is to cut back on salt and eat more fresh fruits and vegetables.

“But research also shows that certain foods have stronger blood pressure lowering properties than others. Pay attention to pumpkin seeds – this modest product can turn out to be a powerful natural remedy for high blood pressure, ”the Express edition quotes doctors.

According to them, the development of hypertension is often associated with an increase in the amount of cholesterol in the arteries – excess cholesterol can block them, increasing the likelihood of heart disease or stroke. Pumpkin seeds contain oil that raises the level of “good” cholesterol, which is a natural vascular cleaner from “bad”.

In addition, pumpkin seeds contain magnesium, potassium and arginine – substances necessary for the production of nitric oxide, under the influence of which vascular tissues relax, their rigidity decreases (this improves the quality of blood flow that feeds the heart).

“Each pumpkin seed is a concentrated source of nutrients that improve blood pressure control mechanisms. Tests in women have shown that by consuming three grams of pumpkin seed oil every day for six weeks, significant reductions in systolic blood pressure can be achieved, ”said the UK’s National Health Service.

In addition to including pumpkin seeds in the diet, reducing salt intake and additional fruits and vegetables, the service also recommends eating foods rich in fiber – they also contribute to reducing high blood pressure.


Doctors have learned to determine the deficiency of vitamin B12 in the face

Great Britain,

19 Sep 2020.

It is no secret that vitamin B12 plays one of the main roles in the human body, so its deficiency contributes to the development of many diseases, such as anemia. Vitamin is responsible for the formation of red blood cells – red blood cells that provide oxygen to the tissues and cells of the body. It is also involved in DNA formation and blood cell division. This vitamin is also needed for the normal functioning of the nervous system, writes Express.

If a person is experiencing soreness in the face, such as a dull pain in the cheekbone under the eye or shooting in the forehead, then this may indicate a vitamin B12 deficiency. Another “signal” about the lack of this vitamin is a change in complexion: it becomes paler or may have a slight yellow tint. The same is true for the whites of the eyes: they are rather yellow than white.

According to doctors, the color changes due to the fact that there are problems in the formation of red blood cells. There are not enough red blood cells in the body, so the skin appears pale. In this case, the yellow color appears due to the increased level of bilirubin. The amount of this toxin increases when a large number of red blood cells are destroyed in the body, and this is often facilitated by a lack of vitamin B12.

Formerly LIVE24 reportedwhat experts have called inflammation-fighting superfoods. First of all, you need to include berries in your diet. Substances that give cherries, blueberries or cranberries their bright colors act as antioxidants. They can reduce inflammation, strengthen the immune system, and reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases. Other plant compounds that are rich in berries, such as flavonoids, phenolic acids and tannins, also help fight inflammation in the body.


Vitamin D can help avoid second wave of coronavirus


14 Sep 2020.

American scientists from the Medical University of Chicago have named vitamins that can help prevent the second wave of coronavirus. It is about the consumption of foods containing vitamins A, B, C and D, LIFE reports.

According to researchers, people who have a lack of vitamin D in their bodies are twice as likely to get coronavirus. This element plays a huge role in the immune system, and its daily intake should be between 2.5 and 5 mcg. Scientists came to this conclusion on the basis of an experiment in which 500 US residents participated.

At the same time, the human body can get full vitamin D only if there is sufficient ultraviolet radiation. Nutritionists noted that this element can be obtained from food sources, the main among which are considered to be mushrooms, fish and seafood, egg yolks, cereals, cheese and fish oil.

Vitamin D stabilizes blood pressure and normalizes heart rate. In addition, it strengthens and restores the nervous system, and also prevents the development of cancer cells.

Expert Marina Apletaeva in an interview with reporters noted that she does not quite agree with colleagues from abroad who rely on vitamin D. According to her, groups A, B and C are also responsible for the quality of immunity, not less than vitamin D.

The specialist also recommended adding zinc-containing foods to the autumn diet. This trace element is responsible for metabolism and contributes to the successful course of immune responses. Zinc is abundant in chicken, low-fat cheese, almonds, beans, green peas, and pumpkin seeds.

Formerly LIVE24 reportedthat doctors continue to add to the list of “superfoods” that can cleanse and protect the body from certain diseases. This time, doctors named a plant famous for its unusual properties. It’s about capers. Experts say that from a “technical” point of view, capers do not fit the definition of vegetables or fruits. These small legumes are actually the immature flower buds of the Capparis spinosa shrub that grows in the Mediterranean region.


Revealed a link between a mother’s diet and a healthy heart in a child

Great Britain,

12 Sep 2020.

Doctors from the UK conducted a study that helped to understand how obesity in the mother during pregnancy and the future health of the child are related to each other, writes Science Daily.

Experts from King’s College London, together with scientists from the British Heart Association, examined the health of expectant mothers and their children 3 years after birth. Some of the obese pregnant women engaged in the recommended physical exercises and switched to healthy foods, and some continued to lead their usual lifestyle.

The survey showed that children whose mothers began to take care of their health during pregnancy had an average heart rate decrease of 5 beats per minute, which means that the risk of hypertension decreased. The study also helped to understand that mothers maintained a healthier diet even 3 years after giving birth.

According to the authors of the work, maintaining physical activity and proper nutrition during pregnancy are very important components in maintaining heart health. Diet before, during, and after pregnancy has positive long-term health benefits for both mother and baby.

Formerly LIVE24 reportedthat women who gave birth to children ahead of schedule are almost 2 times more likely to die young. The risk of premature death is greatest in the first 10 years after childbirth, but this risk remains elevated for the next 40 years. Swedish scientists have found that having a baby before 37 weeks is associated with an increased likelihood of death from any cause, including heart disease, diabetes and cancer.


Doctors have identified a berry that can remove toxins and reduce sugar


13 Sep 2020.

Nutritionists and scientists have reported that they have identified the berry, which is a real storehouse of vitamin C, is able to protect the body from a large number of ailments and fill it with the most essential macronutrients and vitamins. Doctors have already dubbed their discovery “superfood”.

– Yes, yes, we are talking about a berry that is available throughout the year – about raspberries, – said the observers of the scientific department of – It contains a huge amount of vitamin C. At the same time, raspberries are incredibly useful both fresh and frozen.

The berry can be an incredibly healthy snack or dessert:

“Let’s be honest, there is a lot of sugar in raspberries,” the scientists said. – At the same time, it is raspberries that can remove excess sugar from the body. It contains antioxidants to help fight obesity and diabetes, as well as heart and cancer. Also, raspberries do an excellent job of removing toxins.

Formerly LIVE24 reported about how exactly those people feel who have decided to give up sugar forever. Sometimes sugar addiction is much harder to overcome than quitting smoking or even drinking, experts say.


The most powerful vitamin that protects even against superinfections has been identified


Aug 22, 2020

Recently, scientists have begun to make claims about the emergence of viruses that have developed immunity against antibiotics. A recent study by specialists from the United States showed that vitamin B3 will help humanity cope with infections.

Studies on laboratory mice, as well as work with donated blood samples, have shown that vitamin B3 can strengthen the immune system a thousand times. It activates the body’s defenses so well that it becomes almost invincible to viruses. In addition, nicotinamide can protect a person even from Staphylococcus aureus. In high doses, it can stop the development of HIV, the authors said.

They noted that although we are talking about large doses of B3, it still does not pose any threat to humans. Scientists believe that nicotinamide can protect the body even from superinfections. The vitamin is recommended for women, as well as for people suffering from stress and those who experience more physical activity.

Formerly LIVE24 reportedthat when examining cells infected with coronavirus, which had previously been weakened for laboratory research with an analogue of COVID-19, Chinese scientists realized that breast milk can effectively suppress it. It’s all about whey proteins, which worked well against the pangolins closely related to coronavirus.

Moreover, the protein isolated from goat’s milk also proved to be effective. The same could be said for unboiled cow’s milk, but in this case the effect was not as significant. Boiling, destroying proteins, reduced the effect of milk to zero.


The fan dug into the list of 22 playable heroes / CD-Action

Let’s face it, the beta of Marvel’s Avengers did not convince anyone to the game. Weak start, chaotic fights, a whole lot of mistakes and usually non-engaging gameplay did not make the best impression on us, but the title also has its moments. Hope for the full version can be found in a greater number of playable heroes – after all, the four heroes available now, in the right conditions (i.e. with an efficient team, the right mission and a higher level of difficulty), allowed you to have fun even well.

We’ve known for a long time that new characters will join the premiere six (Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel, Black Widow, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America) after the premiere. The forces of the Avengers team in free updates will strengthen, for example Hawkeye whether Spider-Man, but the final list is to be much longer. As the dataminer Sanders Presents suggests, the files of the PC beta hides information about as many as 22 playable heroes (Peter Parker was missing, because he will only go to PlayStation owners). Here they are:

  • Ant-Man
  • Black Panther
  • Black Widow
  • Dr. Strange
  • Falcon
  • Hawkeye (Clint Barton)
  • Hawkeye (Kate Bishop)
  • Hulk
  • Iron Man
  • Captain America
  • Captain Marvel
  • Mar-Vell
  • Mockingbird
  • Ms. Marvel
  • Part
  • Quake
  • Scarlet Witch
  • She-Hulk
  • Thor
  • Vision
  • War Machine
  • Winter Soldier

As you can see, there will be both characters well-known from Marvel movies and heroes so far associated mainly with comic book cards. Other datamakers confirm the above list, although we still cannot be 100% sure.

Marvel’s Avengers on PC, PS4 and XBO will land September 4. Next-gen console editions will hit stores during the holiday season. This weekend, everyone will try the title on each of the platforms.

About the choice of oil, rust prevention and useful improvements.

“Duster” has gained a reputation as a reliable and passable crossover, although not without flaws. Our editorial board made the TOP 5 tips for Renault Duster owners.

Prevent chips and corrosion

The body is the most expensive part of the car, so you should pay special attention to it. In the reviews on, many owners note weak paintwork among the shortcomings of the Renault Duster. It’s easier not to wait for scratches and chips to appear, which later will begin to rust, but to protect the car in advance by pasting with special film the most vulnerable places: the edge of the hood, the edges of the doors and the trunk lid.

Also, foci of rust often appear on the chrome trim on the fifth door. Again, the armored film helps to prevent this – reliable care for the Renault Duster.

Avoid water

Another common complaint of “Dusterovodov” concerns moisture seeping through the joints between the roof and rear pillars in the trunk. “Life hack” specifically for such cases, shared a blogger from the channel “Go RASH” on YouTube. He sealed problem areas with a V-ribbed belt and sealant.

In heavy rain, water can get under the hood through the nozzles of the windshield washer, it is advisable to seal them as well, otherwise the moisture will reach the candle wells.

Fighting mud

The next tip that should be used immediately after buying a Renault Duster is to install seals on the hood cover so that dirt does not enter the engine compartment. Among the minuses of the French crossover, thresholds that are not covered by doors are also often featured. Because of this design, it’s hard not to get your pants dirty when landing.

However, among automotive accessories, you can look at the thresholds of “Clean pants”, which solve this problem. It will not be superfluous to purchase larger mudguards, since the standard ones do not protect the lower part of the car well from dirt.

Choose engine oil

It is no secret that regular replacement of oil in the engine is the key to a long ride without problems. For many owners, the selection of oil turns into a headache. Experts of the “Driving” portal advise pouring gasoline Renault Duster 5W40-5W50 in the summer, and 0W30-0W40 in the winter.

It is worth remembering that the brand and cost of oil are not as important as the regularity of the procedure and the maintenance of the Renault Duster. It is especially important to change the oil more often in difficult operating conditions.

Extend the life of the checkpoint

For a manual gearbox, Renault does not at all provide for the replacement of gear oil. You can listen to advice only to those who do not plan to travel longer than the warranty period. At the same time, the manual transmission will “say thank you” for changing the oil every 60,000 km.

For the “machine”, the replacement intervals will be approximately the same. The manufacturer recommends for automatic transmission Elf Renaultmatic D3 Syn oil for a long ride without problems. It is also worth updating the oil in the angular gearbox after 30 thousand km and in the rear gearbox – by 60 thousand km.
