Air Pollution, Particulate Matter and Inner strength by Kefir Detox! Particulate matter, also called PM or soot, consists of microscopically small solid particles or liquid droplets suspended in the air. The smaller the particles, the deeper they can penetrate into the respiratory system and the more hazardous they are to the body when breathed in. In short, the “pollution” or smog, which has currently engulfed Delhi NCR.The smaller-sized particles – those 2.5 micrometers or less in diameter, called PM2.5 – are of the greatest health concern because they can pass through the nose and throat and be absorbed deep inside the lungs. How does this affect me? Recent studies indicate that PM can have the following effects on our bodies and can cause: • lung irritation, which leads to increased permeability in lung tissue. • aggravation of the severity of chronic lung diseases, causing rapid loss of airway function. • inflammation of lung tissue, resulting in the release of chemicals that can impact heart function. • changes in blood chemistry that can result in clots that may lead to heart attacks. • increased susceptibility to viral and bacterial pathogens leading to diseases like pneumonia What can we do about it? Masks might not be the best answer in this situation as it is equivalent to ensuring that an already laboured system is further forced to extract oxygen through a thick material. Similarly, investing in an air purifier could prove to be counter-productive as it reduces your body’s ability to deal with irritants in the environment. So where does the answer lie? The best answer in this situation is making your insides strong. What all does this entail? This essentially means:- 1. Body should be strong enough to not go into an overdrive, and overreact by causing high levels of inflammation for protection 2. Making sure that your immune system remains active and alert to prevent any attacks from opportunistic bacteria or viruses 3. Ensuring that your body has the ability to absorb the nutrition you feed it to heal any damage caused due to the prevailing environmental condition 4. Detoxification of foreign substances regularly and efficiently All of these to fulfil together definitely seems a tall order, however, nature, through its various gifts and bounty, has provided us yet another example as to how we can save ourselves from a state of extinction that we are so hell-bent on achieving. One such gift now available to us in our country is Kefir. Kefir is the world’s most powerful probiotic drink which originated in cold countries such as Russia and some other European countries. How can a probiotic help a situation where of air pollution or high levels of particulate matter (PM) in the air are wreaking havoc in your system? • Kefir ensures that it heals the lungs quicky, thus preventing permeability of lungs from increasing by acting as an anti-allergic 1. • Kefir considerably reduces and over a period of time eliminates inflammation, which not only heals the lungs and improves their function, but also completely cleans them up of infections. 2. • Inflammation of the lung tissue is similar to what happens in Asthma and bronchitis and kefir has been a great ally in the fight against these. 3 • Kefir has the proven ability to lower cholesterol and thus prevent clogging of the veins and arteries. It also reverses calcination of blood vessels and clears blood vessels. 4. • Kefir significantly boosts the body’s innate immune system, thus preventing infections. Also the good bacteria in kefir are able to fight off pathogenic microorganisms. 5 • Kefir clears the body of environmental toxins, salts, heavy metals, radionuclides and alcoholic products. It’s time we stopped looking at superficial methods for fighting stimuli such as air pollution or particulate matter. You owe it to yourself and your family to make your body strong from within and the immune system robust enough to fight external factors which may cause trouble for your body.
KEFIR FOR BALANCED BLOOD PRESSURE Since high blood pressure increases your risk of serious problems like heart attack and stroke, it’s something you want to address immediately. Your doctor might put you on blood pressure medication to drive that high BP down, but some of these medications come with side effects. Plus, you may not want to be stuck taking meds for the rest of your life. Luckily, it is possible to control high blood pressure without medication. Simple lifestyle changes like losing weight, trimming fat on your waistline, exercising daily, eating healthy and cutting back on alcohol, caffeine and stress can have an amazing effect on your blood pressure. But there may be another simple, delicious way to support healthy blood pressure… Drink a daily glass of kefir. Fermented dairy does your blood pressure good- A recent study from researchers at Auburn University in Alabama and the University of Vila Velha in Brazil found that the fermented dairy beverage kefir could help manage high blood pressure by improving communication between the gut and the brain. Why did kefir bring their high BP down? Well, previous research shows that sometimes a bacterial imbalance in the gut can cause high blood pressure. And studies also show that probiotic supplements can improve blood pressure. So, it makes sense that this fermented, probiotic-rich drink would do the same. But the benefits of kefir went beyond blood pressure… Researchers also found that kefir decreases endotoxin in the blood and improves better intestinal permeability . Intestinal permeability refers to your intestines’ ability to allow some substances to pass through to the rest of your body, while blocking bad bacteria and other harmful substances from doing the same. When your intestinal permeability gets out of whack, the bad stuff finds its way into your blood and can create inflammation that leads to disease. This is called leaky gut syndrome. Researchers also found that kefir restored the balance of four healthy bacteria in the gut and an enzyme in the brain that promotes a healthy nervous system. That’s why they believe kefir may lower blood pressure by improving communication between the gut and the brain. Probiotics have an impact on the gut and the brain, and the gut and brain both have an impact on blood pressure. Adding kefir to your diet- There’s plenty of research in humans showing that eating (or drinking) foods rich in probiotics can improve blood pressure. If you do decide to try it, make sure to buy one without added sugar. Thus, other probiotics which have added sugar might not be the best choice. You don’t want too much of the sweet stuff to counteract the health benefits of this fermented drink.
KEFIR, INFLAMMATION AND ALLERGIC REACTIONS Allergic reactions are caused by inflammatory responses against harmless environmental substances. People with an over-sensitive immune system are more prone to allergies, which can provoke conditions like asthma. Kefir is able to significantly control asthma and the inflammatory response that happens in the respiratory tract as a result of such a condition. Kefir also reduces the production of mucous, and therefore is recommended in conditions where mucous is produced such as a cold, bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma, etc.
