Anti-Oxidants - The Definitive Guide

Antioxidants refers to compounds or molecules that help neutralize the effects of free radicals or ROS in the body. An antioxidant essentially is a molecule stable enough to donate an electron to a rampaging free radical and neutralize it, thus reducing its capacity to damage. Anti-oxidants come in various shapes and forms as well.

However, as the body ages or matures, its internally generated anti-oxidant levels decline, resulting in an imbalance between anti-oxidants and pro-oxidant molecules. This results in oxidative stress, which perpetuates this vicious cycle by in turn, further reducing the scavenging capacity of antioxidants. Therefore, supplementation with anti-oxidants in your diet or through other mechanisms may help to alleviate oxidative stress. 

The predominant phytochemicals or anti-oxidants present in tea are catechins, theaflavins and thea-rubigins. Studies have found various health benefits of each of these phytochemicals present in tea.

The Definitive Guide to Agni or Digestive Fire: An Important Concept in Ayurveda

Our body’s digestive ability is like a fire that converts the food we consume into tiny molecules that our body absorbs.

One of the most important fundamental principles of Ayurveda - along with balance - is that of agni or the digestive fire. According to ayurveda, the secret to a healthier and happier life depends on how perfectly we digest, absorb, and utilize the nutrients from the food we consume. Food is not only a source of energy for our body, but it also needs energy to perform all the necessary biochemical reactions involved in the process.

If this digestive energy is not up to the mark or disturbed, then various stomach-related issues including diarrhea, stomach aches, and constipation may persist. Not only this, but other generalized issues like migraine headaches, lethargy, irritability, disturbed sleep, and reduced immunity will likely also arise.

The Concept of Balance in Ayurveda: A Definitive Guide for the Lay Person

As a centuries-old tradition of holistic health and wellness, Ayurveda has come a long way on the world map. Millions of people all across the world have been embracing this holistic medicine system to avert various ailments and stay healthy.

Ayurveda works by working on the root cause of the ailment. In the Ayurveda system, it is believed that this universe is made up of five basic elements (Panch Mahabhutas) – Space (Akasha), Air (Vayu), Fire (Agni), Water (Jal) and Earth (Prithvi). Ayurveda emphasises the value of keeping these elements in perfect balance for a healthy mind and body. It further has categorized body constitutions or doshas into three main types: VataPitta and Kapha (more about each of these later). While typically one or two of these doshas will be dominant for all of us, the goal as per Ayurveda is to keep these doshas in balance.

Ayurvedic principles postulate that if we are facing symptoms of an illness or disease, a dosha is in a heightened state or in other words, out of balance. The Ayurvedic approach to healing is to combat the elevation—often by counteracting it—to bring the corresponding dosha into balance.
