Granola

 


Granola – Health benefits

Granola is usually considered a healthy cereal. Granola is calorie-dense, as well as rich in protein, fibre, and micro nutrients. In particular, it may provide iron, magnesium, zinc, copper, selenium, vitamin B, and vitamin E.

However, its nutritional profile varies widely depending on the specific ingredients used. In general, granola with more dried fruits or added sweetener is higher in sugar, Nut- and seed-based varieties are higher in protein, and those with more whole grains are higher in fiber.

Benefits of granola

Although there’s little scientific research on granola itself, common ingredients, including oats, flax seeds, chia seeds, and almonds, are linked to numerous health benefits.

Filling and high in fibre

High-protein ingredients in granola may include nuts, such as almonds, walnuts, and cashews, and seeds like hemp, pumpkin, and sesame.

Additionally, high-fibre foods like oats, nuts, and seeds slow down the emptying of your stomach and increase digestion time, which can help you feel fuller for longer — and may aid appetite control.

Other potential health benefits of Granola are:

  • Improve blood pressure. High-fiber ingredients like oats and flax seeds have been shown to help reduce blood pressure.
  • Reduce cholesterol levels. Oats are a good source of beta glucan, a type of fiber that works to reduce total and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels, two risk factors for heart disease.
  • Reduce blood sugar. Whole grains, dried fruit, nuts, and seeds may help reduce and control blood sugar levels, particularly in people with obesity or prediabetes
  • Improve gut health. Granola has been found to increase levels of healthy gut bacteria, compared with refined breakfast cereals like muesli flakes, wheat flakes.
  • Provide many antioxidants. Ingredients such as chia seeds, and Brazil nuts are good sources of inflammation-fighting antioxidants like Gallic acid, quercetin, selenium, and vitamin E.
  • Relieve from constipation. Granola work perfectly sprinkled on yogurt. You can also add them into a smoothie or fruit shake, or mix them into dips, fruit salad, baked goods or desserts.

A Corona virus infects body by entering healthy cells. There, the invader makes copies of itself and multiplies throughout body. Plant-food-derived antioxidants and active principles such as flavonoids, hydroxycinnamates (ferulic acid, chlorogenic acids, vanillin etc.),  β -carotene and other carotenoids, vitamin E, vitamin C, or rosemary, sage, chamomile tea and numerous extracts are increasingly proposed as important dietary antioxidant factors. In this endeavor, all analyses involve oxidative DNA damage for characterizing the potential antioxidant actions.                                                                                     Person with weak immune system and with the ignorance in basic awareness( mask, sanitizer, frequent hand wash, social distancing)can easily effected with the disease.

GREEN INDIA HEALTHCARE Corona virus A Virus Isn’t Alive I’ve long been fascinated by the utter simplicity of a virus, compared to the force it can exert on a human body, courtesy of the immune response. Biologists also don’t consider a virus to be alive because of what it  can’t  do: it doesn’t metabolize, doesn’t respond to stimuli, and can’t reproduce unaided. A virus requires a live host to make more of itself, which it can do quite effectively before our immune systems even realize it’s there. Symptoms - Fever, cough, cold, respiratory disorders Helpful ways to strengthen your immune system and fight off disease Don’t smoke Do regular exercise and yoga(suryanamaskar(sun salutation) and chandranamaskar(moon salutations) Get adequate sleep Take steps: washing your hands frequently and avoid touching surfaces Foods like garlic,  ginger, fruits and vegetable contain innumerable phytonutrients that can boost our immune system and even modulate DNA repair.
