Post: Cellular health: 5 ways to improve the fundamental πŸ™Œ

Hello everyone ! Have a great Friday and weekend too πŸ™‹πŸ»

Cell division

Individually, our body is not a single life form. It is a community of 50 -75 trillion cells depending on body size. Each of the cells collectively forms individual tissue, tissues collectively form organs, organs collectively form systems and systems form the human body. Each cell function as an individual unit. It needs food, nutrients, water, air and undergo metabolism, absorb its necessary nutrients and releases toxins as waste. That’s how, fundamentally the cells functions, grow and carry out different bodily functions. Optimally, our body needs 116 essential nutrients to function normally, maintain a proper weight, energy and health, that is the overall wellbeing.

Human blood cells

As we age, the cells slowly get tired, slows down metabolism. They are unable to absorb the nutrients and vitamins that we get from food and supplements. The toxins from food, air and water get deposited in the cells. Slowly, the cellular function gets damaged leading to diseases state, fasten ageing and poor health.
So, several factors are affecting at the cellular level. The poor quality of food, processed food, food contaminated with pesticides, low quality of vitamins and supplements.
Other factors like environmental pollutions, high level of stress daily, lifestyle factors like smoking, alcohol, all of them affect greatly at the cellular level, the core of the body.

Therefore, to become healthier and stay healthy, we need to take care of the body at the cellular level. Experts say that NAD+, a coenzyme is associated with the function of Sirtuins, the kind of protein which is responsible for ageing and longevity. NAD+ is the main factor for maintaining the cellular functions ranging from metabolism, energy production, circadian rhythm, excretion/release of toxins and DNA health. As age progresses, Sirtuins activity, NAD+ levels decline in the body.
When Sirtuin activity and NAD+ levels decline, not only we age faster, affect the life span, also result in pathogenesis of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases like diabetes.

How to increase and improve the activity of Sirtuins and NAD+ levels?

  1. Calorie restriction: This is not a diet plan. It is just that you started to reduce the intake of the number of calories slowly than your usual or habitual intake. Research shows, that when food is restricted, scarce in the body, the state has a powerful influence in the activity of Sirtuins, SIRT 1. Similarly, in the case of intermittent fasting, the same effect is observed.
  2. Intermittent fasting: This is a pattern of eating. It is having just 2 proper meals a day leaving long hours of fasting between the meals so that you get the maximum benefit out of them.

3.Physical activity: Any form of physical activity.

4.Melatonin, the sleep hormone also influences the activity of Sirtuins.

5. Food which increases polyphenols and omega 3 fatty acids.
Research shows that some particular variety of food are responsible to increase the activity of Sirtuins, SIRT1


Quercetin: Found in green vegetables, berries, tea, citrus fruits, apples, onions
Resveratrol: Pomegranate, berries, grapes, soybeans.
Food like green tea, olive oil, cocoa, omega 3 fatty acids rich fishes (salmon, tuna, sardines) avocados, all influences the activity of Sirtuins, SIRT1.

Post : It’s ‘wine’ O clock somewhere ! 5 awesome health benefits.

Drinking wine has already been known to have health benefits. Now supported by much scientific research, this claim has been very much in momentum.

2.Mood lifter: Research has shown that a glass of wine can uplift your mood or to say can help to improve the mood. This claim was supported by a study carried out in 2014 where people who had a glass of wine experienced pleasant mood irrespective of the environment not being pleasant similar to a group of people teetotaller in a pleasant environment.

3.Weight loss: Moderate wine drinkers are less likely to get obese. Having about 5 ounces per glass per day but if more than that can add up to calories. They are less likely to suffer from type 2 diabetes and other obesity-related diseases.

4.Longevity: Population studies have shown that moderate wine drinkers tend to live longer. Usually found that having a glass of wine with a healthy meal makes a good combo. And clubbed with the daily routine exercise is altogether a healthy habit. With such a regimen, you are bound to remain healthy and live longer.

5.Sharpen your memory: Healthy flavanols in wine improves blood flow in the brain and prevent deposits of plaques in the brain. This helps in your cognitive function. So, you have a lower risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
