Shape your body and mind
with healthy food habits
The head is acknowledged as a supreme organ in the human body and also the house of all sensory organs, including the skin (which covers the entire body). When our mind works properly, it gives us a keen sense of awareness, a fierceness of focus attention, and, resoluteness.
Your body can’t work with a dull and cloudy mind; it can lead to forgetfulness, scattered thoughts, memory issues and a feeling of heaviness.
Why diet is an important fuel to our brain –
Ayurveda has already stated that most of the memory issues happen due to Kapha imbalance which is the result of a sedentary lifestyle.
Brain’s white matter or tarpaka is responsible for the recording of Images, experiences, and feelings, which is also a sub-dosha of Kapha. The brain is the seat for Tarpaka Kapha. This particular tissue nourishes and shields the brain cells and other nerve tissue.
This Kapha is also responsible for providing the nourishment to other channels that carry the sensory information to the brain.
But when stagnation of Kapha happens, it results in a cloudy feeling and a dull mind.
How food affects our brain’s functions
Have you ever noticed, a sudden rush of energy after eating a sugar candy, or how some foods elevates your mood or help you to combat depression?
Actually, it is the work of a neurotransmitter which is called serotonin that has huge impacts on the brain’s neural chemistry.
Around 95% of Serotonin is composed in the gastrointestinal tract, which, along with neurons, adds to your sentiments. Good bacteria’s that are found in our intestine, which helps to drive out the bad bacteria’s and protect the gut system affects both serotonin and neurons.
Thus, if you are considering the diet that favours the production of Serotonin production, then it assists you in reducing the level of stress, anxiety in your life.
On the contrary, the diet or sedentary lifestyle that every human being is adopting these days is loaded with chemicals that trigger the
- Aggressive behaviour
- Mood disorders
- Decreased memory
- Muscles weakness
- blurred vision , etc
Even researches have been revealed that when these chemical pesticides react with body chemicals, they cause respiratory and digestive issues
Boosting brain power with balanced food –
The significance of a balanced diet can’t be stressed enough for a healthy lifestyle. To maintain a healthy lifestyle, one needs to maintain proper equilibrium to meet all the necessary nutrients demanded by the body.
In Ayurveda, each person is addressed as an individual, and dietary guidance is tailored to each person’s requirements. Often, a diet which is light, satvic and cleansing in nature gives wisdom and intensifies the senses.
These foods help naturally return your mind into a content, happy state. Ayurveda Recipes are very warming and have cooling qualities and are refined enough to assist you to keep a clear mind, but delicious enough to please.
If we talk about the balanced diet then basically it contains 50 to 60% carbohydrates, 30%fat, 12 to 20% protein. All the organs and tissues require proper nutrition to run efficiently by using the proper amount of nutrients and calories to keep an ideal weight. The overall well-being of a person is reliant on sound nutrition, physical exercise, and healthful body weight.
Thus, a proper combination of ingredients is needed to fuel the brain, blood cells and muscles.
How food nourishes and protects your body
Many nutrients in food improve health and shield your body from illness.
Eating complex, nutritious foods is essential because their unique elements act collaboratively to formulate an outcome that can’t be replicated by using a supplement. Let’s see the importance of essential elements;
Vitamins and minerals
Your body only requires small amounts of vitamins and minerals, but they’re essential for your health.
Fibre is an indispensable component of a healthy diet. It not only encourages proper digestion and removal but also nourishes the bacteria’s present in your gut system.
Therefore, consuming the diet high in fibres gives your body the power to fight disease and boost the immune system.
Protein and healthy fats
Protein plays an important part in your body, amino acid aids in immune capacity, muscle synthesis, metabolism, and growth; on the other hand, fats work to provide fuel and help assimilate the nutrients.
A Word from Dr. Santhisree Bheesetti ;
