  1. Effective ways to lose weight featuring Moringa Powder

    A common misconception is that low carbohydrate diets are the best way to lose weight. In the media, carbohydrate is often portrayed as bad and people are often told to avoid carbs. However, the truth is that there are different types of carbohydrates; Complex Carbohydrates which can be referred to as good carbs and Simple Carbohydrates which can be referred to as bad carbs. The body requires you to consume complex carbs as it is a source of energy supply for the various organs in the body. While many celebrities advocate the Atkins diet, in which carbohydrates are cut from the diet to lose weight, this diet is known to have serious long-term consequences for your health. Moreover, it is not sustainable as the severe restriction of carbohydrates limits the body’s source of vitamins and minerals which can result in micro-nutrient deficiencies. So, what can you do?

    In Singapore, many of us lead busy lifestyles and so we are always up for quick-and-easy recipe inspirations to lead a healthier lifestyle. One of the biggest concerns is that people tend to skip breakfast due to the lack of time for preparation in the morning. Others rely on grab-and-go carb-heavy, nutritionally poor foods (think McDonald’s pancakes, fried bee hoon or instant foods) which are loaded with refined sugar as quick options.

  7. Tips To Boost Immunity Against Coronavirus - Part 3

    Most living in Singapore have become more anxious and concerned ever since the Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON) has been raised to Orange level in our tiny island state two weekends ago. This has triggered a nation-wide effect of panic-shopping as people feel compelled to stock up on essential items to stay prepared in case the situation worsens. However, what’s appalling is some of the food choices that people make when it comes to stocking up the pantry in times like this. One of these choices is instant noodles. Seriously, are we more fearful of going hungry in Singapore than being infected with the virus that we have to stock up on instant noodles which actually weaken our immunity against illnesses/viruses? We should be stocking up on nutrient-dense foods that build up our immune system instead of foods that tear it down. We take this opportunity to list some common, nutrient-poor, highly processed foods/beverages that you should NOT be eating during this crucial time.

  8. Tips To Boost Immunity Against Coronavirus - Part 2

    Coronavirus- 2019-nCoV. It’s the number one thing on everyone’s mind right now. Our country is doing a great job to provide live updates and to educate the public on precautionary measures such as washing our hands with soap frequently and if you are sick, stay home. We cannot over-emphasize the need to maintain a strong immune system at this time, especially for older adults and those with underlying medical conditions. As all of us probably know by now from news updates, those with compromised immune systems, such as the elderly or sick, are most at risk of becoming severely ill or dying from the coronavirus. A strong immune system will protect your body from seasonal illnesses/viral infections and ensure faster recovery after an illness. Good nutrition (plus the cutting down on highly processed foods and sugar-laden foods) is essential to a healthy immune system. With our fast-paced lifestyles in Singapore, it seems only logical that people would rush to buy vitamin supplements at this time. Consuming enough whole fruits and raw vegetables daily can be challenging for some- popping a pill is much easier and quicker. Instead of relying on pill supplements (synthetic nutrients) which may not be well-absorbed by the body, we strongly recommend a whole-food approach to build up your immunity. Adding some nutrient-dense superfoods to your diet everyday can be a very convenient and effective way of getting an immune boost without having to rely on supplements. Do you know what nutrients your immune system needs? Here are some important nutrients you can quickly consume in significant amounts daily.

  9. Tips To Boost Immunity Against Coronavirus - Part 1

    By now, many of us would have heard of Coronavirus and how it continues to spread across the country and abroad. But what exactly is coronavirus? Coronavirus produce respiratory-like symptoms like cold or flu with symptoms including coughing, fever, congestion, headaches, body aches and sore throat. This then develops into a viral pneumonia which is transmitted person-to-person as it is an airborne disease. If you are looking to keep the virus away, you are going to need a strong immune system. Our immune system is a complex network of cells and organs that protects the body from disease-causing germs. However, sometimes it fails, and this makes us ill. Yes, you can get a flu shot, wash your hands regularly and wear masks, but these aren’t the only ways to stay safe & healthy. Never underestimate the power of your diet. The foods you eat have a great impact on your immune system – either they are strengthening it or weakening it. So, what should you eat/drink to strengthen immunity in times like this?
