DANGER SNACKS –PACKED POTATO CHIPS CONTAIN OLESTRA

Now a days different brands of packed potato chips are available in market, all over the world.These potato snacks are available in the market in different flavors, style and attractive packing. Celebrities are paid in tons to participate in the advertisements of such  packed foods. Citizens of most countries, of all ages, are addicted to these packed potato chips. In this post I would like to open up some of those facts behind packed potatoes.

OLESTRA – NEW THREAT?

Most of the fried pack foods are preparing by frying it with artificial fat called Olestra. Olestra is a fat substitute that adds no fat, calories, or cholesterol to products. It has been used in the preparation of traditionally high-fat foods such as potato chips, thereby lowering or eliminating their fat content. The main portion of olestra is sucrose esterified by 8 fatty acids which are bound to the OH-Groups of the sugar. Like ordinary fats (3 fatty acids are bound to glycerol) it belongs to the class of esters.

Olestra rapidly depletes blood levels of many valuable fat-soluble substances, including carotenoids. Olestra is able to dissolve lipid-soluble vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, and Vitamin K along with carotenoids which are partially removed from foods. This process is a big threat to children in their growing stage.

Olestra causes gastrointestinal disturbances, which are sometimes severe, including diarrhea, fecal urgency, and more frequent and looser bowel movements.

Olestra sometimes causes underwear staining associated with "anal leakage”

Olestra may cause abdominal cramping and loose stools. Olestra inhibits the absorption of some vitamins and other nutrients.

WATERMELON AS NATURAL VIAGRA

Watermelon is now a days considered as wonder fruit that have multiple benefits on regular intake. Watermelon which is a rich source of antioxidants such as Lycopene, Betacarotene, phytonutrients such as Citralin, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B1, Vitamin A, Potassium, Iron and fibers.

More than 90% of watermelon contain water and rest is rich of fibers.

Watermelon as natural Viagra:

Untitled Major phytonutrient in watermelon is Citrullin, when watermelon is consumed, citrulline is converted to arginine through certain enzymes. Arginine is an amino acid that works wonders on the heart and circulation system and maintains a good immune system. This process increases the quantity of Nitric Oxide in blood vessels which will ultimately dilates blood vessels and increases blood flow. Sildenafil (Brand Name: Viagra) also act in the body similarly by increasing the quantity of Nitric Oxide. Citrullin thus increases the quantity of Arginine and thereby finding good natural solution for erectile dysfunction.

Citrullin is found more in the white flesh of watermelon right inside its outer hard shell.Hence a fully ripe watermelon can give good results.

The major advantage is that, the quantity of Citrullin that converted into Arginine is controlled by body itself and the level of Nitric Oxide produced inside body will be regulated according to the requirement. This process have another good aspect that, regular intake of watermelon will not precipitate reactions and risk as in case of Sildenafil or similar medicines. Disadvantage is that, watermelon cannot produce immediate relief to erectile dysfunction because of its indirect pathway of action in increasing blood flow.

Change the proverb:‘ONE WATERMELON A DAY KEEP VIAGRA AWAY’
