Findings indicated that the Nipa syrup reduced DPPH radical. DPPH radical scavenging activity of the syrup was 42.19%. Since phenolics are present are known for having an antioxidant property, their presence in Nipa syrup explains its antioxidant activity. Total phenolics content of Nipa syrup is 29.71mg/ 100ml. Gallic Acid Equivalent.


Conclusions
Based from the results, Nipa s...yrup contains 24.77% moisture content, 5.86% ash, 0.41% fat, 2.1% protein and 67.04% carbohydrates. Nipa syrup obtained a pH value of 4.6, titratable acidity of 1.30%, water activity of 0.614 and a viscosity of 27.136 Pa’s . Nipa syrup also has 90* Brix, 21.45% total sugars, and 19.35% reducing sugars.

Nipa syrup was found to be most active against E. coli and C. albicans
Nipa syrup demonstrated 42.19% radical scavenging activity, based on the results of the DPPH assay. Antimicrobial and antioxidant activities could be attributed to the presence of phenolics. Total phenolics content of nipa syrup is 29.7099 mg/ 100 ml GAE.

Pomegranate is also called seeded apple, in which vitamin C, potassium and malic acid prevent problems in heart, ovary and prostate.

Low blood pressure (hypotension) is pressure that is so low that it causes symptoms or signs due to the low flow of blood through the arteries and veins. When the flow of blood is too low to deliver enough oxygen and nutrients to vital organs such as the brain, heart, and kidney, the organs do not function normally and may be permanently damaged.
Usually people with low blood pressure also have low blood sugar, so this juice improves low blood sugar as well.  Most patients have kidney problems, and it may help to ingest “black” food such as black sesame, black bean and black sticky rice with sea salt.
Drink 4 to 6 cups of this juice everyday; 2 in the morning, 1 before lunch, 2 in the afternoon, and 1 before dinner.
Ingredients
  • 1 beetroot, peeled and sectioned

Hypoglycemia (Hypoglycaemia in British English) is the medical term for a pathologic state produced by a lower than normal level of glucose (sugar) in the blood. Hypoglycemia can produce a variety of symptoms and effects but the principal problems arise from an inadequate supply of glucose as fuel to the brain, resulting in impairment of function (neuroglycopenia). Derangements of function can range from vaguely “feeling bad” to coma and (rarely) permanent brain damage or death. Hypoglycemia can arise from many causes and can occur at any age.
People with low blood sugar are suggested to have multiple meals a day with less amount in each. Drink 4 to 6 cups of this juice everyday and stay away from noodle, bread, cake, dessert, peanut, cashew, milk product and BBQ food.  It is good to eat vegetables, fruit, corn, potato, seaweed, laver and seafood.

Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin.  The human body wants blood glucose (blood sugar) maintained in a very narrow range.  Insulin and glucagon are the hormones which make this happen.   Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life.  There are 23.6 million children and adults in the United States, or 7.8% of the population, who have diabetes. While an estimated 17.9 million have been diagnosed with diabetes, unfortunately, 5.7 million people (or nearly one quarter) are unaware that they have the disease.

I'M NOT IN THE MOOD

What a depressed person says?  And how a friend of a depressed person should response?

Depressed:  I'm worthless.
Friend:  You are important to me and I love you.
Depressed:  Hopeless and helpless.
Friend:  There is hope and I will give you a hand.
Depressed:  I 'm so tired of living.
Friend:  Relax, let's watch a movie.
Depressed:  I want to die.
Friend: How?
Depressed:  I will cut my veins.
Friend:  Ok, die alone... I am scared of blood.  Just call me when the ambulance covered you with blanket. hi,hi,hi... (gie H.)
------------------------------------------------------------

It takes much patience and understanding to deal with depressed people. The struggle with depression can be an excruciating one. At some points, everybody experiences depression. But depression is experienced in varying degrees. As much as it is painful, depression is inherent to the human mental and emotional make-up. There is such thing as “normal depression”. As the term implies, normal depression is an anticipated reaction to the incongruities, tragedies and disappointments of living. (http://www.healthzine.org/Depressions/depressed-people


When I am in this situation, I first accept the fact that I am depressed.  So I will walk, read, write, surf the net, review my lessons or talk to my family and friends; keeping myself busy.  


I realized that diverting myself to different things or hearing comforting words is not enough but to fight this feelings by eating healthy food rich in tryptophan.



Tryptophan
What can high-tryptophan foods do for you?
  • Help regulate your appetite
  • Help you sleep better
  • Elevate your mood
What events can indicate a need for more high-tryptophan foods?
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Impatience
  • Impulsiveness
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Weight gain or unexplained weight loss
  • Slow growth in children
  • Overeating and/or carbohydrate cravings
  • Poor dream recall
  • Insomnia
Food sources of tryptophan include red meat, dairy products, nuts, seeds, bananas, soybeans and soy products, tuna, shellfish, and turkey.
What is tryptophan?
Tryptophan is one of the 10 essential amino acids that the body uses to synthesize the proteins it needs. It's well-known for its role in the production of nervous system messengers, especially those related to relaxation, restfulness, and sleep.
Raising Serotonin Levels
Second, tryptophan serves as a precursor for serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps the body regulate appetite, sleep patterns, and mood. Because of its ability to raise serotonin levels, tryptophan has been used therapeutically in the treatment of a variety of conditions, most notably insomnia, depression, and anxiety.
Dietary deficiency of tryptophan may lead to low levels of serotonin. Low serotonin levels are associated with depression, anxiety, irritability, impatience, impulsiveness, inability to concentrate, weight gain, overeating, carbohydrate cravings, poor dream recall, and insomnia.


(Serotonin Foods List

Following are some of the serotonin rich foods that help increasing serotonin levels in the body.

Free Range Turkey: Turkey is a protein rich food that contain tryptophan required to increase serotonin levels. In fact, people often feel relaxed and sleepy after having turkey which clearly states that it contains tryptophan in high concentrations. Moreover, it is also rich in essential fatty acids and so having a meal comprising a turkey and cranberry sauce sandwich on whole grain bread can be a great way to boost serotonin levels in the body. More on foods high in tryptophan.

Eggs: Eggs being rich in proteins and amino acids, have been ranked highest in the list of serotonin foods as they are also great source of omega 3 fatty acids comprising the essential long chain fats E.P.A. and D.H.A.

Flaxseeds/Flax Oil: Being high in both tryptophan and omega 3 fatty acids that make up a considerable proportion of brain nerve cells, some people like taking 1 - 4 tbsp flaxseeds or 1 - 2 tbsp flaxseed oil a day to treat bipolar depression, postpartum depression, violent behavior and other psychological problems.

Buckwheat: Buckwheat is a natural starch food which is rich in vitamin B and tryptophan which not only boost energy levels and mood but also banishes depression by raising the serotonin levels in the brain.

Wild fish and Seafood: Fatty fish and seafood including wild salmon, sardines and herring that are high in oils containing essential fats EPA and DHA and tryptophan, are well known to calm the mood swings of bipolar disorder and to ease regular depression.

Whey Protein: Popular for its numerous health benefits like, regulating appetite, improving insulin sensitivity and blood sugar levels, boosting the immune system, whey protein is one of the best protein foods that raises the serotonin levels by increasing the plasma Trp-LNAA, an indicator of brain serotonin function in the body.

Banana: Being high in carbohydrates and surprisingly high in tryptophan, banana is another food that increases serotonin levels in the body.

Dark Chocolate: One of my personal favorite, cocoa and dark chocolate being high in sugar cause a sudden spike in the blood sugar levels after eating which improves the mood and relaxes the mind due to increase in the serotonin levels.)  source:

John 16:22

You are now very sad. 

BUT I will see you later, 

and you will be so happy that no one will be able to change the way you feel.
