The effects of Coca Cola Consumption in Human Body

                                                   History of the Coca Cola drink

Coca Cola is a carbonated drink made by Coca Cola. Originally considered an authorized medicine, the drink was invented by John Stith Pemberton and later bought by businessman Asa Griggs Candler.

John Stith Pemberton, after graduating medical studies went in a civil war. After the war, he was diagnosed with a serious serious life-threatening wound. Being addicted to morphine, John Stith Pemberton found a way to fight his addiction by creating Coca Cola.

In 1885, Pemberton began selling a drink called „Pemberton’s French Wine”, the beverage being made of cocaine, kola nuts and damiana (a shrub with aphrodisiac and anti-anxiety properties).

Coca Cola was originally marketed as a remedy for many illnesses, one of which included impotence. Pemberton has given this drink properties such as: healing headaches, anxiety, depression, indigestion and addiction. Cocaine was removed from the drink only in 1914. At that time, a glass of Coca Cola cost was 5 cents.

The name of the drink refers to two of its basic ingredients: cocaine leaves and round nuts (a coffee source). Today, Coca Cola uses instead of fresh coca leaves, used leaves – the cocaine extracts, cocaine from them being present at the molecular level.

Kola Nuts – is a source of flavor and coffee. However, the ingredients made public are: carbonated water, sugar, phosphoric acid, caramel dyes, natural flavor and caffeine. As we all know, the Coca Cola drink recipe remains a secret today, although recipes have been identified, but none is the original one.

                      The effects of Coca Cola consumption in the human body

Wine writer Meredith made a study about Coca Cola. According to this study, a 330 ml dose of Coca Cola contains so much sugar that the human body should vomit, but phosphoric acid „cuts off”, helping the body keep the fluid inside.

After 40 minutes of drinking, blood sugar has increased, pupils are dilated and blood pressure is also rising. Thus, the body begins to produce more dopamine, a neurotransmitter that controls nerve centers of brain pleasure, basically in the same way that heroin works.

In an hour you will feel the need to urinate, starting to have a carbohydrate crisis in the body, which will make you irritated and faint. Also, with eliminated urine and water present in Coca Cola, along with important nutrients in the body.

The Infograf’s creator, former pharmacist Niraj Nirak, says that absolutely all caffeine beverages act this way, not just Coca Cola.

                                         What doctors say about Coca-Cola …

Cola does not bring any benefit to the body, being energetic and poor nutritional – it doesen’t contain vitamin, mineral, it’s empty, says Dr. Corina Zugravu, representative of the National Institute of Public Health.

The thing confirmed by Dr. Madalina Olimid, the family doctor, – cola is enriched in the CO2 manufacturing process and is considered acidic with a PH acid that damages the stomach. These drinks are forbidden in those with gastritis and gastro esophageal reflux, hernia hiatata, says the doctor.

Carbonated beverages of the cola type have the main defect that fat, fattening leads to countless and serious complications. „Many are sweetened not with sugar, but with honey fructose fructose, which is more obese and more damaging to the heart and the heart.” „Weight gain is a risk factor for other diseases.” Recent research has shown that these beverages are a factor risk and high blood pressure. Not to mention the syndrome of metabolism, diabetes, etc … „says the nutritionist.

Dr. Corina Zugravu warns about the negative effects of caffeine in cola – insomnia, tremor, tachycardia. She says she is one of the cola victims of caffeine, although she can drink two hard coffees without problems, but we do not sleep for hours on cola.

Last but not least, Cola is a demineralising effect on teeth due to PH acid. „Age is not a predisposing factor, but perhaps only by the preferences of the patient. Generally, young people are more likely to drink more,” explains Dr Simona Sevcenco, a dentist. The effect of Coca Cola on teeth can be compared to the effect of some actions. The carbonated beverages have a pH around 3, and the gastric juice is pH 0.9-1 „.

                                                          Personal conclusions

In conclusion, Coca Cola is not recommended for consumption, neither long nor short. Personally, I have a little enjoyable history of Coca Cola consumption, because I am anemic, which means I perceive the „side effects” of the drink much more intense.

Trembling, imbalance, dizziness, nausea, agitation and lack of concentration are just some of the effects that Coca Cola exerts on the body.

There are people who can not live without the consumption of carbonated drinks, such as Coca Cola, Pepsi and others, but at what risk? Why would I want to hurt myself, willingly and consciously? Just because we have them and we have the option to choose, that does not mean we have to choose wrongly.

During the studies in the faculty, The Dean often told us at classes: All the foods are good for the body as long as we know how to do dose them. A small amount of a particular product, well thought out and administered at the right time can do wonders.

So in closing the article I conclude that although Coca Cola is a very publicized and commercialized drink, that does not mean we have to do abuse. Ideally we would like to focus on the beneficial drinks for the body such as water, natural fruit juices and teas.

Dean Ornish said that bad health is not because we have it but because we already have something that makes it bad. Health is not something to get, it’s something you already own if it isn’t bothered by something – let’s not let that thing be Coca-Cola.

Efectele consumului de Coca Cola in organismul uman

Istoricul bauturii Coca Cola

Coca Cola este o bautura carbonatata, fabricata de compania Coca Cola. Original, gandita ca un medicament autorizat, bautura a fost inventata de catre John Stith Pemberton si cumparata ulterior de catre omul de afaceri Asa Griggs Candler.

John Stith Pemberton, dupa absolvirea studiilor medicale a servit in razboiul civil. In urma razboiului, acesta s-a ales cu rani grave ce ii puneau viata in pericol. Fiind dependent de morfina, John Stith Pemberton a gasit o modalitate de a-si combate dependenta creand bautura Coca Cola.

In 1885, Pemberton a inceput sa comercializeze o bautura denumita: „Vinul francez cu coca al lui Pemberton”, bautura fiind constituita din cocaina, nuci kola si damiana (un arbust cu proprietati afrodisiace si anti-anxietate).

enhanced-buzz-orig-17082-1367256558-25

Coca Cola a fost comercializata initial ca un remediu pentru multe afectiuni, una dintre ele incluzand impotenta. Pemberton a conferit acestei bauturi proprietati precum: vindecarea durerilor de cap, a anxietatii, a depresiei, a indigestiei si a dependentei.

Cocaina a fost indepartata din bautura abia in anul 1914. Pe atunci, un pahar de Coca Cola costa 5 centi.

Denumirea bauturii se refera la doua dintre ingredientele sale de baza: frunzele de cocaina si nuci kola (o sursa de cofeina). Astazi Coca Cola utilizeaza in loc de frunzele de cocaina proaspete, frunze folosite – resturile de la procesul de extractie a cocainei, urmele de cocaina de pe acestea fiind prezente la nivel molecular.

Nucile de Kola – reprezinta o sursa de savoare si cofeina. Totusi, ingredientele facute publice sunt: apa carbogazoasa, zahar, acid fosforic, coloranti de caramel, arome naturale si cofeina.

Dupa cum bine stim, reteta bauturii Coca Cola ramane si astazi un secret, desi s-au mai identificat retete, insa nici una fiind cea originala.

Efectele consumului de Coca Cola in organismul uman

Scriitoarea Wine Meredith a realizat un studiu despre Coca Cola. Conform acestui studiu, o doza de 330 ml de Coca Cola contine atat de mult zahar incat organismul uman ar trebui sa vomite, insa acidul fosforic „taie aroma”, ajutand corpul sa pastreze lichidul inauntru.

Dupa 40 de minute de la consumul bauturii, zaharul din sange a crescut, pupilele sunt dilatate iar tensiunea arteriala, de asemenea, a crescut. Astfel, corpul incepe sa produca mai multa dopamina, un neurotransmitator ce controleaza centrii nervosi de placere ai creierului, practic, in acelasi mod in care actioneaza si heroina.

Intr-o ora vei simti nevoia sa urinezi, incepand sa ai o criza de glucide in organism, ceea ce te va face iritat si lesinat. De asemenea, prin urina elimini si apa prezenta in Coca Cola, impreuna cu nutrientii importanti din organism.

Creatorul Infografului, fostul farmacist Niraj Nirak, afirma ca in acest mod actioneaza absolut toate bauturile racoritoare cu cofeina, nu doar Coca Cola.

Ce afirma doctorii despre Coca Cola…

Cola nu aduce niciun beneficiu organismului, fiind densa energetic si saraca nutritional – nu are vitamine, minerale, este “goala”, spune dr. Corina Zugravu, reprezentanta Institutului National de Sanatate Publica.

Lucru confirmat si de  dr. Madalina Olimid, medic de familie, pacientilor sai – cola este imbogatita in procesul de fabricatie cu CO2 si este considerata bautura acidulata cu un PH acid, care daunează stomacului. Aceste băuturi sunt interzise la cei cu gastrită şi reflux gastro esofagian, hernie hiatata, spune medicul.

Bauturile carbogazoase de tip cola au principalul defect ca ingrasa, ingrasatul duce la complicaţii nenumarate si grave. “Multe sunt îndulcite nu cu zahar, ci cu sirop de fructoza din porumb, care este si mai obezogen si mai daunător pentru vase si inima. Ingrasatul este in sine un factor de risc pentru alte boli. Cercetări recente au aratat ca aceste bauturi sunt un factor de risc si pentru hipertensiunea arteriala. Ca sa nu mai zic de sindromul metabolic, diabetul zaharat, etc…”, spune nutritionistul.

Dr. Corina Zugravu avertizeaza asupra efectelor adverse de la cofeina din cola – insomnie, tremurături, tahicardie. Aceasta spune ca ea insasi se numara printre victimele cofeinei din cola, desi poate bea două cafele tari fara probleme, insa de la cola nu mai doarme ore in sir.

Nu în ultimul rand, Cola are un efect demineralizant asupra dintilor din cauza PH-ului acid. “Varsta nu este un factor predispozant, decat, poate, doar prin preferintele de consum ale pacientior. In general, tinerii sunt mai predispusi deoarece ei consuma mai des acest gen de bauturi”, explica dr. Simona Sevcenco, medic stomatolog. Efectul Coca Cola asupra dintilor poate fi comparat cu efectul unor acizi. Bauturile carbogazoase au PH-ul in jurul valorii de 3, iar sucul gastric are PH-ul 0.9-1″.

Concluzii personale

In concluzie, bautura Coca Cola nu este recomandata pentru consum, nici indelungat si nici de scurta durata. Personal, am o istorie putin placuta cu consumul de Coca Cola, din cauza faptului ca sunt anemica, ceea ce inseamna ca percep „efectele secundare” ale bauturii mult mai intens.

Tremuraturi, dezechilibru, ameteli, stari de greata, agitatie si lipsa de concentrare sunt doar cateva dintre efectele pe care le resimt la nivelul organismului in urma consumului de Coca Cola.

Sunt persoane care nu pot trai fara consumul de bauturi carbogazoase, precum Coca Cola, Pepsi si altele, insa cu ce risc? De ce as vrea sa imi fac rau mie insumi, in mod voit si constient? Doar pentru ca le avem la dispozitie si avem optiunea de a alege, asta nu inseamna ca trebuie sa alegem eronat.

In decursul studiilor din timpul facultatii, doamna decan ne spunea adesea la orele de curs: Toate alimentele sunt bune pentru organism atata timp cat stim sa dozam. O cantitate mica dintr-un anumit produs, bine gandita si administrata la momentul potrivit poate face minuni.

Asadar, in inchiderea articolului concluzionez ca desi Coca Cola este o bautura foarte mediatizata si comercializata asta nu inseamna ca trebuie sa facem abuz. Ideal ar fi sa ne axam pe bauturile benefice pentru organism precum: apa, sucuri naturale de fructe si ceaiuri.

Dean Ornish spunea ca sanatatea proasta nu e din cauza ca o avem ci din cauza ca deja avem ceva ce o face proasta. Sanatatea nu e ceva ce trebuie sa obtii, e ceva de detii deja daca nu o deranjeaza altceva – sa nu lasam acel altceva sa fie Coca Cola.

Dureri articulare cauzate de sezonul rece/ Articulation pains caused by cold weather

In ultima perioada a fost extrem de frig. In Suceava temperatura a coborat pana sub – 15-20 °C, cu vant aspru, ninsoare si frig. In conditiile in care faci naveta pentru a ajunge la locul de munca, sau si mai rau – la munca – este mai frig decat afara, este mai mult decat necesar sa te imbraci corespunzator conditiilor de iarna. In caz contrar, risti sa racesti si esti dispus infectiilor de lunga durata caracteristice iernii.

Durerile articulare – Generalitati

Una dintre problemele cu care se confrunta multa lume din cauza temperaturii scazute este durerea articulara. Statul prelungit in picioare, eforturile fizice si incaltamintea neadecvata sunt factori decisivi ce duc la aparitia durerilor articulare.

Durerile articulare apar din motive variate: gripa, varicela, oreion, hepatita, stresul dar si din cauza schimbarilor hormonale. In cazuri grave, durerile articulare pot fi cauzate de boli precum: hernia de disc, artrita reumatoida, infectii urogenitale.

Meteosensibilitatea. Persoanele afectate manifesta: dureri reumatice, oboseala, ameteli si nervozitate. Meteosensibilitatea difera de la o persoana la alta si creste in intensitate odata cu varsta, afectarea formei fizice si gravitatea bolii.

Recomandari si tratamente

Pe timpul iernii este indicat sa purtam haine groase, de bumbac sau de lana. Textura acestor materiale izoleaza caldura si protejeaza impotriva vantului si precipitatiilor. De asemenea, trebuie sa purtam incaltaminte cat mai comoda cu o talpa flexibila, pentru a evita socurile.

Este necesar sa evitam imbracamintea confectionata din materiale sintetice si incaltamintea stransa, deoarece acestea nu pastreaza caldura la nivelul corpului. Temperatura in camin trebuie mentinuta la 22-24°C, nu este indicat sa mentinem temperatura sub 20°C. O temperatura scazuta in casa reprezinta un factor de stres pentru organism, ceea ce duce la lipsa concentrarii si odihnei.

Miscarea este recomandata pentru articulatii sanatoase! Exercitiile zilnice cu greutati sunt recomandate pentru a stabiliza articulatia dar si pentru a creste masa musculara.

Utilizarea de geluri anti-inflamatoare reduce durerea intensa in zonele afectate. Se recomanda masarea seara, inainte de a merge la culcare.

Pe langa geluri, se utilizeaza si ceaiurile din plante cu actiune anti-inflamatoare precum: ghiara diavolului, coacazul, musetel, cretusca, salcie si plop. Infuziile din aceste plante se pot utiliza intern – doua-trei cani pe zi, dar si extern – comprese pe articulatiile dureroase. Aceste plante au actiune antialgica si antireumatica, reduc intensitatea durerilor si cresc mobilitatea articulatiilor.

Baile fierbinti sunt recomandate in sezonul rece, datorita efectelor benefice asupra mentinerii articulatiilor incalzite.

Suplimentele naturale pe baza de vitamina C si glucozamina, suplimentele alimentare pe baza de oligoelemente sunt recomandate pentru articulatii sanatoase si functionale.

Alimentatia persoanelor reumatice trebuie sa contina fructe: ananas, coacaze, afine, zmeura, porumb, legume cu frunze verzi. Pentru articulatii sanatoase se recomanda si alimentele bogate in acizi grasi si Omega 3 ce reduc inflamatia: nuci, seminte de in, tofu, dovlecel, boabe de soia, ulei de masline, de avocado.

Crearea unei stari bune de spirit – hrana pentru suflet si vindecare pentru organism

Sa ne imbunatatim starea de spirit! Durerea articulara ne poate face anxiosi, deprimati si iritabili insa asta nu inseamna ca trebuie sa ne lasam condusi!

Recuperea incepe cu acceptarea durerii si riscul de a o impartasi cu altii. La finalul zilei, trebuie sa imbratisam durerea si sa o ardem ca si combustibil pentru calatoria noastra. Dumnezeu ne-a oferit durerea pentru a ne reaminti ca suntem in viata, pentru a invata sa pretuim bucuriile si frumusetea lumii.

Haideti sa gasim un loc in interiorul caruia exista bucuria si bucuria va arde durerea. Si sa nu uitam, ca din durere si probleme au venit cele mai dulci cantece si cele mai multe povesti vindecatoare. Haideti sa fim rabdatori si puternici, realizand ca intr-o zi aceasta durere ne va fi folositoare.

Omul adevarat zambeste in necazuri, aduna puterea in primejdie si creste curajos prin reflexie.

Lately it has been extremely cold. In Suceava the temperature went down to below – 15-20 ° C, with harsh wind, snow and cold. As long as you commute to get to work, or even worse – to work – is cooler than outside, it is more than necessary to dress properly for winter conditions. Otherwise, you risk to get a flu and you are willing to have long-lasting infections that are characteristic of winter.

                                                       Joint pains – Generalities

One of the problems many people face because of low temperature is joint pain. Prolonged state, physical effort and inadequate footwear are decisive factors that lead to the appearance of joint pain.

Joint pain occurs for various reasons: flu, varicella, mumps, hepatitis, stress, but also because of hormonal changes. In severe cases, joint pain can be caused by diseases such as: herniated disc, rheumatoid arthritis, urogenital infections.


Meteosensitivity. People affected manifest: rheumatic pain, fatigue, dizziness and nervousness. Meteosensitivity differs from one person to another and increases in intensity with age, impairment of the physical form and severity of the disease.
                                            
                                                Recommendations and treatments

In winter it is advisable to wear thick, cotton or wool clothing. The texture of these materials isolates heat and protects against wind and precipitation. We also need to wear footwear as comfortable as a flexible sole to avoid shocks.

It is necessary to avoid clothing made of synthetic materials and tight footwear because they do not keep the warmth of the body. The temperature in the house should be kept at 22-24 ° C, it is not advisable to keep the temperature below 20 ° C. A low temperature in the home is a stress factor for the body, which leads to lack of concentration and rest.

Movement is recommended for healthy joints! Daily exercise with weight is recommended to stabilize the joint and to increase muscle mass.

The use of anti-inflammatory gels reduces intense pain in affected areas. It is recommended to massage the pain zones in the evening before going to bed.

In addition to gels, we also use herbal tea with anti-inflammatory action such as: devil’s claw, gooseberry, chamomile, cretus, willow and poplar. The infusions of these plants can be used internally – two or three cups a day, but also externally – compresses on the painful joints. These plants have antialgic and anti-rheumatic action, reduce the intensity of pain and increase joint mobility.

Hot baths are recommended during the cold season, due to the beneficial effects of maintaining the joints heated.

Natural supplements based on vitamin C and glucosamine, food supplements based on trace elements are recommended for healthy and functional joints.

The rheumatic diet should contain fruit: pineapple, blueberries, blueberries, raspberries, corn, green leafy vegetables. For healthy joints, foods rich in fatty acids and Omega 3 are also recommended to reduce inflammation: nuts, flaxseeds, tofu, zucchini, soybeans, olive oil, avocados.

              Creating a good mood – food for the soul and healing for the organism

Let’s improve our mood! Joint pain can make us anxious, depressed and irritable, but that does not mean we have to flow with it!

Recovery starts with accepting pain and the risk of sharing it with others. At the end of the day, we must embrace the pain and burn it as fuel for our journey. God has given us the pain to remind us that we are alive, to learn to appreciate the joys and the beauty of the world.

Let’s find a place inside which there is joy and joy will burn the pain. And let’s not forget that from the pain and trouble came the sweetest songs and most healing stories. Let us be patient and strong, realizing that someday this pain will be useful to us.

The real man smiles in trouble, gathers power in danger and grows courageously through reflection.

Apa minerala Aquatique – tratament natural pentru un organism sanatos

Dupa cum v-am povestit in articolele precedente, cu cativa ani in urma am suferit de gastrita acuta. Aceasta afectiune a fost cauzata de obiceiuri alimentare nesanatoase, precum meniuri dezorganizate, consum ridicat de carbohidrati, chipsuri si bauturi bogate in acid si chimicale.

Pentru a trata gastrita dureroasa pe care mi-am provocat-o inconstient singura, pe langa un tratament elaborat a trebuit sa respect si o dieta stricta ce consta in: legume/fructe fierte, iaurt, pilafuri si multa apa.

In conditiile in care apa de la robinet/fantana nu era cea mai buna alegere datorita continutului ridicat de substante minerale si a reziduurilor, am optat pentru Apa Minerala Aquatique.

aquatique-cea-mai-bunac-apac-mineralac-platac-pentru-sugari-szi-copii-mici

De ce am ales Apa Minerala Aquatique?

Apa minerala Aquatique isi are izvorul in inima muntilor Carpati, la o altitudine de 1.100 m, in zona protejata a Parcului Natural Bucegi, rezervatia naturala Abruptul Prahovean.

Pe langa faptul ca aceasta apa provine dintr-o sursa naturala, aceasta prezinta o compozitie echilibrata si o mineralizare redusa de numai 104 mg/l, ceea ce o face ideala pentru consumul in tratamentul gastritei si nu numai.

De asemenea, dieta specifica pentru vindecarea gastritei acute consta in consumul de alimente FARA SARE! Continutul redus de sodiu din Apa Minerala Aquatique a contribuit in mod pozitiv la vindecarea acestei afectiuni si mi-a ajutat organismul sa reinfloreasca.

In fiecare zi in care consumam Apa Minerala Aquatique ma simteam mai plina de viata si mai fericita. Datorita consumului regulat de apa minerala naturala oligominerala, eram hidratata si organismul meu devenea mai pur pe zi ce trece.

In urma unui tratament tinut cu strictete, cu diete corespunzatoare si consum regulat de Apa Minerala Naturala Aquatique, organismul meu s-a vindecat complet si a uitat de gastrita acuta.

Apa Minerala Aquatique – tratament natural pentru un organism sanatos

Desi au trecut ani de zile de la acel episod neplacut din viata mea, nu am renuntat la Apa Minerala Naturala Aquatique.

Am descoperit ca pentru a ma mentine in forma si a nu suferi de situatii neplacute precum: constipatie, deshidratare si luare in greutate trebuie sa nu renunt la consumul de Apa Minerala Naturala.

Apa este considerata sursa de viata datorita rolului important in dizolvarea si transportul nutrientilor in intregul organism: vitamine, minerale, hidrati de carbon si oxigen.

Secretul pentru un organism sanatos si o viata fericita, lipsita de griji este Apa. Astazi, intr-o zi de duminica dupa masa impart Apa Minerala Aquatique cu membrii familiei, chiar si cu bebelusii zglobii si curiosi.

Ce reprezinta pentru voi Apa Minerala Aquatique?

Beneficiile si riscurile consumului de cafea/The benefits and risks of coffee consumption

Buna dimineata dragi cititori si bloggeri!

Ma gandeam in aceasta dimineata la cat de importanta este cafeaua. Cu totii suntem obisnuiti cu ea, de indata ce deschidem ochii, pe langa rutina de dimineata, cafeaua ocupa primul loc.

Daca in copilarie, gustul amar al cafelei si mirosul neobisnuit ne facea sa strambam din nasuc, astazi nu mai este asa.

Efectele benefice ale consumului de cafea

         De indata ce simtim mirosul de cafea proaspat preparata, simturile incep a se dezmorti, si incepe dulce-amara trezire. Pupilele ni se dilata la contactul papilelor gustative cu acel lichid, in timp ce in organism are loc o adevarata lupta. Cofeina, sau drogul existent in cafea actioneaza la nivel chimic asupra corpului uman;

  • Cofeina, considerat drog psihotrop (PSIHOTRÓP, -Ă, psihotropi, -e, adj., s. n. (Medicament) cu acțiune asupra psihicului. – Din fr. psychotrope) usor pentru om, actioneaza ca stimulent. Pe langa cofeina, cafeaua mai contine si un alt agent chimic, de origine necunoscuta ce stimuleaza productia de cortizon si adrenalina (hormoni de stimulare);
  • Pe langa savoarea si aroma ce o confera in fiecare dimineata, cafeaua contribuie la reducerea bolilor precum Alzheimer si Dementa (fapt dovedit de studii);
  • Cafeaua – prieten al vezicii biliare-> Conduce la o incidenta mai mica a calculilor biliare si a bolilor vezicii biliare atat la barbati cat si la femei;
  • Risc redus al bolii Parkinson. Cafeaua inceteaza dezvoltarea acestei boli;
  • Performante cognitive. Cafeaua se recomanda persoanelor ce au probleme cu memoria;
  • Cofeina prezenta in cafea sporeste eficienta de absorbtie gastro-intestinala a analgezicelor, in special la persoanele ce sufera de migrene, actionand asupra vaselor de sange cerebrale. De aceea in unele medicamente, cofeina este introdusa ca si ingredient (Ex. Caffetin);
  • Antidiabetic – Cafeaua poate reduce riscurile de aparitie a diabetului;
  • Protectia ficatului – Cafeaua poate reduce incidenta de ciroza hepatica;
  • Previne cancerul – Consumul de cafea poate reduce cancerul oral, de esofag si faringian, de asemenea reduce si cancerul de prostata;
  • Reduce riscul de boli cardiovasculare – Cafeaua impreuna cu aportul de cafeina din alte surse alimentare,  aduce un risc redus de moarte din cauza bolilor cardiovasculare.
  • Puternic laxativ – Cafeaua este un stimulent pentru peristaltism (PERISTALTÍSM s. n. Mișcare de contracție (urmată de o relaxare periodică) a musculaturii stomacului și intestinului, care se propagă sub formă de unde și face ca alimentele să fie împinse de-a lungul tubului digestiv; p. ext. mișcare de același tip a altor structuri anatomice tubulare; spec. mișcare de contracție a mușchilor inimii, care se propagă ondulatoriu. – Din fr. péristaltisme) si reduce constipatia. 
  • Efect antioxidant – Cafeaua contine: polifenoli, acizi hidroxilici, flavonoizi, antocianine. Acestia poseda efecte antioxidante si de reducere a deteriorarii celulelor cu potential oxidativ. Substanta cu efect special anticancerigen – insa doar presupusa – este metilpiridina.
  • Prevenirea cariilor dentare – Taninul din cafea poate reduce potentialul cariogen al alimentelor.
  • Guta – Consumul de cafea duce la prevenirea aparitiei gutei in special la barbatii de peste 40 de ani.

        De cealalta partea a „taberei” se afla efectele negative ale consumului de cafea. Riscurile consumului indelungat ale acestei bauturi sunt:

  • Dependenta de cafea;
  • Cancer – Cu toate ca precizam in beneficiile consumului de cafea, ca aceasta bautura reduce aparitia cancerului, s-a raportat totusi prezenta a peste 1000 de substante chimice in cafeaua prajita dintre care 19 sunt cunoscute ca agenti cancerigeni.
  • Probleme gastro-intestinale – Cafeaua este interzisa cu desavarsire persoanelor cu probleme gastro-intestinale precum gastrita, colita si ulcer;
  • Efecte psihologice – stari precum: emotii, nervozitate si bataiala (BÂȚÂIÁLĂ, bâțâieli, s. f. Tremur nervos al mâinilor, al picioarelor, al capului. [Pr.: -țâ-ia-] – Bâțâi + suf. -eală) sunt caracteristice persoanelor ce au consumat prea multa cafea. De asemenea, in cazul intreruperii consumului de cafea sunt prezente stari precum: anxietate, iritabilitate.
  • Insomnie – In cazul consumului repetat si indelungat se pot prezenta stari de insomnie, chiar si narcolepsie (NARCOLEPSÍE s. f. Acces brusc manifestat printr-o nevoie irezistibilă de a dormi. – Din fr. narcolepsie);
  • Colesterol – In urma testelor efectuate, cofeina moleculele cafestol si kahweol, ce se regasesc numai in boabele de cafea, ridica nivelul lipoproteinelor cu densitate mica din organismul uman. Aceasta crestere este un indicator care ne arata ca cresterea colesterolului se intampla si din cauza consumului de cafea.
  • Tensiunea arteriala – Cofeina este implicata in cresterea riscului de hipertensiune arteriala.
  • Efecte asupra persoanei gravide – Cafeaua poate afecta sarcina in proportii minime.
  • Anemia feripriva – Pe care, din pacate o posed si eu, se datoreaza consumului ridicat de cafea, si interfereaza cu absorbtia de fier.
  • Interactiunea cu medicamentele – Cofeina in combinatie cu unele medicamente poate afecta ficatul si functionarea acestuia.

Toate aceste beneficii si riscuri sunt concluzionate de catre teste si persoane autorizate.

Concluzii

      In principal cafeaua este o bautura buna pentru consum atata timp cat este moderat. O cantitate medie sau minima pe zi nu numai ca ne imbunatateste starea de spirit dar ne confera si productivitate, atentie si memorie mai calitativa.

Good morning dear readers and bloggers!

I was thinking this morning about the importance of coffee. We are all accustomed to it, as soon as we open our eyes, besides morning routine, coffee occupies the first place.

If, in childhood, the bitter taste of coffee and unusual smell make us crook from the nose, today is no longer so.

The beneficial effects of coffee consumption

As soon as we feel the smell of freshly prepared coffee, the senses begin to twist, and start the bittersweet awakening. Our pupils dilate to touch the taste buds with that liquid, while a real fight takes place in the body. Caffeine, or the existing drug in coffee acts chemically on the human body;

Caffeine, considered a psychotropic drug (PSIHOTRÓP, -Ă, psihotropi, -e, adj., S. (Medication) with action on the psyche – From psychotrope) easy for man, acts as an incentive. In addition to caffeine, coffee also contains another chemical agent of unknown origin that stimulates the production of cortisone and adrenaline (stimulation hormones);
Besides the flavor and aroma that gives it every morning, coffee contributes to reducing diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Dementia (proven by studies);
Caffeine – a friend of the gall bladder -> Leads to a lower incidence of biliary calculi and gall bladder disease in both men and women;
Reduced risk of Parkinson’s disease. Coffee stops developing this disease;
Cognitive performance. Coffee is recommended for people with memory problems;
Caffeine in coffee increases the effectiveness of gastrointestinal absorption of analgesics, especially in people who suffer from migraines, acting on cerebral blood vessels. Therefore, in some medicines, caffeine is introduced as an ingredient (eg Caffetin);
Antidiabetic – Coffee can reduce the risk of developing diabetes;
Liver protection – Coffee can reduce the incidence of cirrhosis of the liver;
Prevents cancer – Coffee consumption can reduce oral, esophageal and pharyngeal cancer, also reduces prostate cancer;
Reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease – Coffee along with caffeine intake from other food sources, brings a low risk of death from cardiovascular disease.
Strong laxative – Coffee is an incentive for peristalsis (PERISTALTÍSM sn A contraction movement (followed by a periodic relaxation) of the muscles of the stomach and intestine, which propagates in the form of waves and causes the food to be pushed along the digestive tract; Extreme movement of the same type of other tubular anatomical structures, speculation of the contraction of the muscles of the heart, which propagates swelling, and reduces constipation.
Antioxidant effect – Coffee contains: polyphenols, hydroxyl acids, flavonoids, anthocyanins. They have antioxidant effects and reduce damage to potentially oxidative cells. The substance with a special anticancer effect – but only supposedly – is methylpyridine.
Preventing tooth decay – Coffee tannin can reduce the cariogenic potential of food.
Gout – Coffee consumption leads to prevention of gout, especially in men over 40 years of age.

On the other side of the „camp” were the negative effects of coffee consumption. The long-term consumption risks of this drink are:

Coffee addiction;
Cancer – Although we mention the benefits of coffee consumption, this drink reduces the appearance of cancer, however, the presence of over 1,000 chemicals in fried coffee has been reported, of which 19 are known as carcinogens.
Gastrointestinal problems – Coffee is forbidden to people with gastrointestinal problems such as gastritis, colitis and ulcer;
Psychological effects – states such as: emotions, nervousness and beatings (NERVOUS THREAT OF HANDS, HEADS) are characteristic of people they used too much coffee. Also, in the case of discontinuation of coffee consumption, states such as: anxiety, irritability are present.
Insomnia – With repeated and long-term use, insomnia, even narcolepsy can occur (NARCOLEPSÍE s., Sudden access manifested by an irresistible need to sleep).
Cholesterol – Caffeine and kahweol molecules, found in coffee beans alone, increase the level of low-density lipoproteins in the human body. This increase is an indicator that shows that increasing cholesterol also happens because of coffee consumption.
Blood Pressure – Caffeine is involved in increasing the risk of hypertension.
Effects on the pregnant person – Coffee can affect the pregnancy in minimal proportions.
Iron-deficiency anemia – Which I unfortunately have is due to high coffee consumption, and interferes with iron uptake.
Interaction with medicines – Caffeine in combination with some medicines may affect the liver and its functioning.

All these benefits and risks are concluded by tests and authorized persons!!

Conclusions

Coffee is mainly a good drink for consumption as long as it is moderate. An average or minimum amount per day not only improves our mood but also gives us more productivity, attention and memory.

Cum sa combati gastrita? Manifestari si alimente permise

Buna ziua dragi cititori! Articolul de astazi va fi despre gastrita.

Din liceu am reusit sa fac gastrita cronica, probabil de la stilul in care mancam, haotic si din cauza alimentelor mai putin sanatoase, a carbohidratilor si a nenumaratelor chipsuri, sucuri cu acid ce pe vremea aia, pareau cool si delicioase.

Acum, privind inapoi la momentele petrecute in spital pentru tratarea acestei afectiuni si a medicamentatiei ample, a regimurilor pe care a trebuit sa le tin cu strictete, va spun din suflet si cu toata sinceritatea ca nu as mai consuma aceleasi alimente.

Problema este ca din cauza stresului si a alimentatiei haotice am readus gastrita, cu dureri cu tot inapoi la stadiul acut in care ma aflam acum 10 ani.

Ce este gastrita?

Gastrita se defineste ca inflamatia acuta sau cronica a mucoasei gastrice si este reprezentata de procese degenerative, alergice si metaplazice, ce pot conduce in multe cazuri la complicatii grave.

Pentru cei nu stiu, gastrita se manifesta prin:

  • Senzatii de arsura in partea superioara a stomacului, ce se rasfrange in sus inspre piept si poate provoca greata;
  • Dureri in capul pieptului, care apar uzual după mesele mai condimentate sau mai greu digerabile (mancaruri acre, prajeli, cafea, alcool, alimentele prea reci sau prea fierbinti) – senzatie de balonare, de satietate;
  • Varsaturi dupa mese copioase, uneori;
  • In special senzatii de arsura si presiune in epigastru (DEX: EPIGÁSTRU, epigastre, s. n. Partea superioară a abdomenului, cuprinsă între coaste și ombilic);
  • Reflux gastro-esofagian (cel putin la mine a fost prezent mereu), scaun de culoare inchisa;
  • Apetit scazut pentru anumite categorii de alimente (lactate, grasimi, carne);
  • Scadere in greutate;

In cazuri mai grave, gastrita poate fi precursoare pentru anemie, malnutritie si ulceratii.

Majoritatea gastritelor sunt produse de microbul Helycobacter Pylori ce populeaza stomacul. Daca in timp nu i se reduce activitatea acestui microorganism prin tratament corespunzator, persoanele afectate pot ajunge la ulcer duodenal si chiar la cancer gastric.

Tratament si mod de prevenire

Sfatul meu este ca inainte sa incepi sa tratezi o afectiune, indiferent de gravitate, este mai bine sa mergi la doctor. In urma unor analize si a unui consult de specialitate gastrita se poate tratata, insa daca incerci sa fii tu doctorul tau, fara prea multe cunostinte in domeniu si fara date exacte poti risca sa agravezi situatia si sa iti faci mai mult rau.

Pe langa tratamentul prescris de doctor, de obicei trebuie sa respecti o anumita dieta. Alimentele permise in dieta pentru combaterea gastritei sunt:

  1. Mamaliga. Da, poate suna ciudat, dar mamaliguta foarte bine fiarta si putin sarata face bine la stomac;
  2. Carnea slaba de pui, sau chiar de vita fara grasime este indicata;
  3. Branza dulce de vaci si urda;
  4. Pilafuri de orez cu legume (cele permise);
  5. Ouale doar fierte si moi, nu se admit prajeli;
  6. Legume. Aici nu exista o gama foarte variata de legume deoarece legumele crude nu fac bine stomacului; printre legumele permise enumar: dovlecel, cartof si morcov. Aceste legume trebuie consumate doar fierte.
  7. Fructe. Se permit fructele preparate termic, nu in stare cruda. A se evita citricele.
  8. Ceai. Ceaiurile care au efect cicatrizant si care refac straturile fine de protectie de pe peretii stomacului sunt: obligeana, coada soricelului, pelin si menta.
  9. Dulciuri. Dulciurile permise sunt: budinci, cheesecake, zahar cu moderatie si miere.

Este necesar sa se consume 3 mese pe zi, de preferat in absenta factorilor de stres; pentru a facilita digestia, alimentele trebuie mestecate foarte bine inainte de inghitire.

Alimentele interziste in dieta pentru combaterea gastritei:

  • Painea se interzice complet.
  • Carnea grasa, pielea de pui, carnea afumata, mezelurile, vinatul, conservele de carne, snitelul, micii, tocaturile si piftia, carnea de peste gras, pestele prajit sau marinat, precum si cel afumat sau conservat.
  • Brinzeturile fermentate, sarate sau conservate.
  • Ouale prajite.
  • Legumele tari si crude, cum ar fi ridichile, castravetii, varza, guliile, ceapa, conopida, usturoiul, muraturile.
  • Nucile, migdalele, alunele, fisticul, citrice.
  • Untura, slanina, margarina sarata, grasimile prajite, smintina acra, untul sarat sau seul.
  • Lichiorurile, romul, tuica, sifonul, apa minerala, siropurile, rachiul, cafeaua neagra.
  • Dulciurile nepermise sunt aluaturile dospite, inghetata, aluaturile calde, prajiturile cu fructe acre, gemul si dulceata. Este bine sa fie evitate acadelele.

Concluzii personale

In lumea aceasta suntem imbiati cu o sumedenie de alimente, un amalgam de gusturi si mirosuri, care de care mai delicioase si mai stimulante pentru apetit si organism.

De foarte multe ori, mass-media si reclamele televizate nu se refera la cele mai naturale si mai sanatoase produse alimentare, ci din contra. Mancarea de tip fast-food, chipsurile, sucurile puternic acidulate, precum si alte alimente nesanatoase nu ne sunt prieteni ci dusmani.

Ramane la alegerea noastra sa consumam alimente sanatoase, cu moderatie pentru o viata mai indelungata si sanatoasa.

English version

Hello dear readers! Today’s article will be about gastritis.

From high school I managed to make chronic gastritis, probably from the style I ate, chaotic and because of the unhealthy foods, carbohydrates and countless chips, acid juices at that time, they all  looked cool and delicious.

Now, looking back at the moments spent in the hospital to treat this condition and the ample medication, of the regimes I had to keep strictly, I tell you from my heart and with all the sincerity that I would not eat the same food.

The problem is that because of stress and chaotic nutrition I brought back gastritis with pain all back to the acute stage in which I was 10 years ago.

What is gastritis?

Gastritis is defined as acute or chronic inflammation of the gastric mucosa and is represented by degenerative, allergic and metaplasic processes, which can in many cases lead to serious complications.

For those who do not know, gastritis is manifested by:

–  Burning sensations in the upper part of the stomach, which face up to the chest and may cause nausea;
Chest pains that usually occur after more spicy or hardly digestible meals (acres, fried foods, coffee, alcohol, too cold or too hot foods) – feeling bloated, satiety;
– 
Vomiting after copious meals, sometimes;
– 
In particular burning and pressure in the epigastrum (DEX: EPIGÁSTRU, epigastra, s. Abdomen, between the ribs and the navel);
Gastro-esophageal reflux (at least to me it has always been present), dark stool;
– 
Low appetite for certain categories of foods (dairy, fat, meat);
–  
Weight loss;

In more serious cases, gastritis can be a precursor for anemia, malnutrition and ulceration.

Most gastritis are produced by the Helycobacter Pylori microbe that inhabits the stomach. If over time the activity of this microorganism is not reduced by proper treatment, the affected person can reach duodenal ulcer and even gastric cancer.

Treatment and prevention

My advice is that before you start treating a condition, no matter how serious, it is better to go to a doctor. After some analysis and a specialist consultation, gastritis can be treated, but if you try to be your doctor without too much knowledge in the field and without accurate data, you can risk getting worse and worse.

Besides prescribing the doctor, you usually have to follow a certain diet.

The foods allowed in the diet to fight gastritis are:

Polenta. Yeah, maybe it sounds weird, but is it’s good boiled and a little salty is good for the stomach;
– fat free
chicken meat, or even fat-free beef is indicated;
Sweet cow’s cheese and urda;
Vegetable rice pilets (allowed);
Eggs are only boiled and soft, not fried;
Vegetables. There is not a wide range of vegetables here because the raw vegetables do not do well for the stomach; among the vegetables allowed: zucchini, potato and carrot. These vegetables should be consumed only cooked.
Fruit. Allowed with heat treatment, not raw. Avoid citrus fruit.
Teas that have a healing effect and restore the fine layers of protection from the stomach walls are: obligeana, quail, wormwood and mint.
Sweets. Sweets allowed are: puddings, cheesecake, moderate sugar and honey.

It is necessary to consume 3 meals a day, preferably in the absence of stressors; to facilitate digestion, foods should be chewed well before swallowing.

Prohibited foods in dieting for gastritis:

Bread is forbidden completely.
Fatty meat, chicken skin, smoked meat, sausage, wine, canned meat, snack, small, chopped and pickled, fishmeal, fried or marinated fish and smoked or canned fish.
Fermented, salted or preserved cheese.
Fresh eggs.
Hard and raw vegetables such as radishes, cucumbers, cabbage, sprouts, onions, cauliflower, garlic, pickles.
Nuts, almonds, hazelnuts, pistachio, citrus.
Salt, bacon, salted margarine, fried fats, sour cream, salted butter or chocolate.
Liqueur, rum, tuna, siphon, mineral water, syrups, spirits, black coffee.
Sweetened desserts are leavened doughs, ice cream, hot doughs, sour cherries, jam and jam. It is good to avoid lollipops.

Personal Conclusions

In this world we are immersed in a multitude of foods, an amalgam of tastes and smells that make it more delicious and more stimulating for appetite and body.

Often, media and television advertisements do not refer to the most natural and healthier food, but on the contrary. Fast-food, chips, strong acids, and other unhealthy foods are not our friends but our enemies.

It remains our choice to eat healthy foods in moderation for a longer, healthier life.

Vitamina B12 sau antidotul pentru sanatate

Interiorul nostru spune atat de multe despre noi. In proportii clare si bine definite, ne putem da seama de caracterul persoanei ce se afla langa noi. Este atat de simplu! Alegerile pe care le facem pe parcursul anilor se reflecta in starea de sanatate si de spirit pe care o afisam zi de zi.

Imi place sa ma gandesc la organismul nostru ca la un sistem extrem de bine structurat. E fascinant cat de ample sunt procesele ce se desfasoara in trupul nostru, in special cand ne gandim la cele de nutritie. De fapt nutritia este activitatea prin care organismul prelucreaza si transporta substante indispensabile: proteine, lipide, glucide, saruri minerale si nu in ultimul rand VITAMINE.

De ce sunt vitaminele atat de importante? Raspunsul este simplu. Aceste mici substante sunt vitale pentru functionarea corecta a organismului in parametri normali.

De exemplu pentru mine, vitaminele sunt mai mult decat necesare. De mic copil am suferit de anemie feripriva. Dintr-un colectiv de 25 de elevi, eu eram fata slaba si palida ce obosea usor si care mai mereu se simtea rau. Corpul meu era istovit in ciuda faptului ca incercam sa urmez o dieta corespunzatoare, bogata in fier si vitamine.

Dupa o perioada lunga de timp am realizat ca alimentele pe care le consum nu ma vor ajuta prea mult in vindecarea anemiei deoarece fierul si vitaminele nu pot fi sintetizate de catre organismul meu prin alimente.

Asadar, singura solutie pentru problema mea a fost sa consum vitamine din comert, de la farmacie. Astfel in timp ajuns sa descoper ca vitamina esentiala pentru o stare de bine, in cazul anemiei mele este B12 sau cobalamina denumita si vitamina rosie. Initial am folosit vitamina B12 intramuscular deoarece prin administrare orala avea efect mult mai lent si indelungat.

Care este mecanismul acestei vitamine? In primul rand, vitamina B12 este renumita pentru buna functionare a sistemului nervos, a creierului si producerea de globule rosii (eritrocite) in sange. Aceasta vitamina are avantajul ca este hidrosolubila, deci usor de asimilat si trebuie consumata zilnic deoarece nu poate fi stocata in organismul uman.

De ce cobalamina? Vitamina B12 este cea mai complexa si cuprinzatoare vitamina din organism si contine cobalt in centrul structurii sale.

In timp, am ajuns sa achizitionez vitamina B12 din ce in ce mai des. Acum consum suplimentul alimentar B12 Vital de la ANKERMANN, WÖRWAG Pharma, o companie germana, cu un renume excelent pe piata mondiala, ce mie mi-a castigat increderea complet. Acest supliment alimentar se gaseste la toate farmaciile din tara.

Pot afirma ca in prezent imi urmez regimul de vitamina B12 cu strictete, in special acum cand examenul de licenta este foarte aproape. Utilizand B12 Vital ma concentrez mai usor, am un randament intelectual mai ridicat si de asemenea, ma odihnesc pe deplin. Si in plus, nu mai sunt stresata! Am invatat sa privesc evenimentul ce se apropie ca pe o provocare si sa trec cu bucurie prin incercari.
