6 Simple And Effective Home Remedies For Water Retention

Water retention or fluid retention, is the accumulation of excess body fluid in certain areas of the body. It is, in the worse cases, quite the unsightly looking condition.

In milder condition, it can cause someone to look obese despite not being overweight. It can also cause pressure fluctuations and in the worst of cases, even a coma.

Does Raw Garlic Promote Hair Growth?

One fact about garlic is undisputed: it smells very, very strong. Ancients believed that the stronger the herb, the more powerful its effect, and pungent garlic was used for everything from dissuading vampires to promoting hair growth. While there have been no significant studies on the effect of garlic on hair loss as of August 2009, scientists have studied the positive effects of onion juice on hair regrowth. The similarities between onions and garlic lead some to believe that garlic may also be beneficial for regrowing hair.

The Onion Study
In a study published in the June 2002 issue of "The Journal of Dermatology," scientists outlined the positive effects of onion juice on hair growth. A group of 23 patients applied onion juice twice a day; 86.9 percent of patients experienced regrowth after six weeks. Onion comes from the same family as garlic, the allium family, and its positive effect on hair regrowth comes from its high sulfur levels, which characterize all members o…

Benefits Of Pineapple Juice

One of the healthiest things you can do for your digestive system is to drink pineapple juice. Pineapple juice is loaded with essential vitamins and nutrients, such as vitamins C and B6, as well as potassium and magnesium. But a healthier digestive tract is only one of the many health benefits one can achieve by making pineapple juice a daily staple.

Processed Juice vs. Fresh Juice
When choosing pineapple juice, fresh juice will always be the better choice. You can get some of the benefits of fresh juice when drinking the processed version; however, there is usually a lot of excess sugar added during the processing and canning of the juice. Raw or fresh juice is free of any extra sugar, synthetics and preservatives and will ensure you receive the optimum amount of vitamins and nutrients.

Benefits to the Digestive System
Pineapples contain an enzyme known as bromelain, which has been said to aid in the digestion of protein. Additionally, pineapple juice is a natural diuretic and helps to…
