Importance of Good Diet backed by Nutritional Supplements

Filling the nutritional gaps which exist in our diet through nutritional supplement is mandatory because lifestyle and diet influence our DNA and also to provide adequate high quality nutrients to our body system to minimize age-related decline in brain skills, eyesight, hearing and so on. The best way of gauging decline in health is by comparing you current health status with what you were like 10 or 20 years ago. This is specially true of those who are 35 or above because many of the biological activities begin to decline from the age of 35 or before, for example 90% of the peak bone mass is acquired by age 18 in girls and age 20 in boys, brain health peaks at age 20 and then begins to decline in fact, by age 40 brain begins to lose 10000 cells every day. What this means is young age is the best time to invest on health.


Keeping the brain healthy is critically important to prevent decline in mental performance as you age. Normally exercise and mental activity are considered important to maintain the agility of the brain but dietary modification and supplements of late have generated considerable interest.


University of South Florida (USF) scientists discovered that supplements containing blueberry extracts along with green tea, vitamin D3 and amino acids helped increase the speed with which older people processed information. Blueberry extract was of special importance because it contains antioxidants. Antioxidants play an important role in brain health because damage to brain cells are more when there is a decline in natural antioxidants in our physical system and like all things related to health with age there is a decline in the production of antioxidants in our bodies as we age


Nutrilite Fruit and Vegetable Concentrate contains blueberry extract therefore adding one Fruit and Vegetable Concentrate tablet on a regular basis can provide the ingredient to maintain the cognitive health of brain.


Note: Dietary supplements fill the nutritional gaps in the diet which we take on a regular basis. Nutritional gaps arise because of:

  1. Limitations of tradition and customs in food choice and preparation.
  2. Lack of variety and non availability of rich nutrients from rare plants on a regular basis.
  3. The pH balance of soil getting disturbed because of overuse of the fields, use of fertilizers, climate change, water logging and so on leading to deficiency of very vital minerals like calcium, magnesium, iron, manganese, zinc and so on in the soil.

Therefore it is necessary to improve your natural diet and use dietary supplements to make it wholesome by filling the nutritional gaps. Dietary supplement cannot compensate for poor diet. Also be physically and mentally active.

The Possible Predicament of Aam Aadmi Party in India

The reasons for the formation of a party like Aam Aadmi (AAP) are very appropriate, their desire to be clean , transparent and above board is laudable and their attempt to be truly of the people, for the people and by the people is radical. The support which they are getting is actually a translation of anger towards the firmly entrenched political establishment of all hues. When a party is  pitch-forked to the front, as an angry alternative, then there is always the danger of those same angry crowd turning against the party for falling short of their, many a times, unrealistic expectations. What the party seems to symbolize, which in this case is a crusade against corruption, can sometimes turn out to be antithetical to the very people who are backing it today because people who fume against irregularities in one instance are the same who benefit from that in another. A person working in a department hardwired to corruption – that is a department where sleaze money accrues to the entire department and each employee gets a share thereof as regularly as his salary at the end of the month – will turn up in an anti corruption rally, tweet his anger and spew venom on the firmly entrenched political establishment! This is the strange paradox of our times! Moving ahead with the support of such a fickle constituency can turn out to be a slippery proposition. As of now the middle class and the urban disadvantaged are the main support base of AAP, of these, the fairly well to do have been beneficiaries in one form or the other of the parallel economy. Parallel economy is the result of, among other things, wanton consumerism. This is another paradox, how are you going to fight parallel economy without fighting consumerism? And when you attack consumerism, you are bound to disturb many people. Thus the support base of the AAP can face a conflict of interest if AAP really go about making radical changes.

Those who are not beneficiaries of the parallel economy, the ones who live well within their legal means and pay all their dues without ever defaulting, travel sleeper class, use public transport in big cities or two wheelers in smaller ones, send their children to modest educational institutions, because if you are not a beneficiary of  the parallel economy you obviously will not be able to indulge in conspicuous consumption, would  also like to support the AAP but the aggressiveness of their spokespersons and acerbic observations of the doings of their opponents in the name of exposing them, militates against their sense of decency and respect for constructive criticism. An aggressive posture, however justified it may seem on the surface, usually rouses passions and the person who rouses such passions  repels, at a deeper level, even those for whom he is purportedly joining issues with his rival. Anybody even your supporter is always uncomfortable with a temperamental person. One of the major reasons why the right wing nationalist parties fail to get widespread acceptance apart from their rather limited agenda is because of their aggressive posturing which borders on intolerance and this behaviour makes decent, quite, unassuming people very uncomfortable with them. Thus the AAP, although a very good and reassuring arrival on the Indian political scene, have to come to terms with the contradictions of a society, the members of which  live in different time frames.
