Children and Adults: Dehydration Dangers

Even though summer is wrapping for most of us with little children or educators going back to work for the fall, and vacationers taking advantage of the sun and beaches before white pants become a lesser trendy wardrobe staple, the strong sun, hot temperatures and humid atmosphere still lingers around. Especially to those who are busy with children or pets, multi-tasking several “to-do” items off our never ending list, we may find ourselves more tired, drained, sun beaten, hot and yes, dehydrated! If you are thirsty, common sense tells you to get a drink. Did you know that dehydration has already begun to set in by the time your brain sends the signal that you need a drink. That is why it is so important to get your fill of clear liquids (water is best) prior to physical activity. This goes (especially so) for your little ones, too! It is critical to overall good health to drink water regularly throughout the day, even when the sun is not shining outside and the season is not summer. Causes of dehydration go far beyond hot-weather activity. When drinking water is a part of your daily routine, the risks for dehydration – a serious condition that can turn deadly, can be prevented. The Mayo Clinic reports that adults lose more than 10 cups of water in a given day, just by taking part in everyday activities, and failure to replace that water, may place your health at risk.

What’s Wrong with Orange Juice?

Susan Sampson’s 2009 article in the Toronto Star, highlights the surprising facts about the everyday breakfast favorite beverage, orange juice. From then till now, it has more and more people re-thinking where all that vitamin C goodness is coming from, and whether the believed immunity builder drink is really just what we thought it to be. In an interview with Alissa Hamilton, Ph.d (in environmental studies from Yale University) and the author of Squeezed: What You Don’t Know about Orange Juice, she examines the “rift that exists between the reality of processed orange juice and retail rhetoric.” Although orange juice has come to symbolize purity in a glass, and a staple item on every restaurant menu, it very well may be heat processed, watered down, sugared up, doctored by flavor engineers and stored for over year!

5 Amazing Benefits of Basil (Sabja) Seeds

There has been some dabble into the up and coming popular basil seeds (that resemble chia seeds), in that they may help control blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes (according to the Sutter Gould Medical Foundation). Why is this so? Basil seeds seem to help the controlling of blood sugar in test subjects, and in dieters, it has the potential to help reduce appetite and food cravings and to keep weight loss efforts on track. There are great claims that basil seed drinks help with weight loss, but lacking in sufficient research, these claims have yet to solidify just yet. In Asian countries, such as Thailand, basil seeds are made into a drink, and stores sell these drinks in cans. The intact seeds, combined with water, sugar, honey and sometimes coconut milk, create a thick drink with a consistency similar to tapioca. The traditional recipes, however, are high in sugar. Also in Asia, it is the main ingredient in Italian cuisines.
