Major Health Benefits of Potatoes

Potatoe one of the most liked vegetable all over the world whose native is South America.the world's fourth-largest food crop, following maize, wheat, and rice. 
Biologically its called as Solanum Tuberosum, member of nightshade family. Instead of its biology, wanna share some of the major health benefits of it. 

The health benefits include their ability to improve digestion,protect the skin,increase circulation,reduce cholesterol levels, boost heart health, 
prevent cancer, manage diabetes, strengthen the immune system, reduce signs of aging, reduce blood pressure, reduce insomnia, and boost eye health.
Avoid peeling the potatoes before cooking them. The outer shell provides a good protection against 
nutritional loss during the cooking process. 

Weight gain -- Potatoe contains more carbohydrates and very little protein. 
Carbohydrates helps you to gain more weight which will be helpful for people who are lean and bodybuilders to gain muscles.

Digestion --  Since it has considerable amount of fiber  more in raw potatoes than boiled ones. It helps in easing the 
digestion by increasing secretion of gastric juices, and prevents constipation.

Skin care -- Potatoes are rich in Vitamin-C and B-complex as well as minerals like potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc are good for the skin.
Water in which potatoes have been washed, are very good for softening and cleaning skin, especially around the elbows. 

Rheumatism --   Soak slices of a potatoe without peeling its skin over a night in a glass and drink the soaked water in the morning which 
will be helpful in reducting joints and muscle pains.  

High blood pressure --The fiber and potassium content in potato are  helpful in lowering cholesterol and 
improves functioning of insulin in the body, which aids in the lowering of blood pressure.
Having too much potatoes is not advisable since the carbohydrate content leads to obesity and follows other side effects of obesity.

 Have less and stay healthy!

Tips to come out of Mental Stress

Busy Life, don't have time to look at the beauty of things around us. we focus on only one thing which is
important at the moment and when we see any problem or lose it, suddenly we feel alone, lost everything in the world.
It leads to irritation, temper, headache, mind keeps thinking of the consequences and pain keeps hurting each minute.
I suggest no medication for these problem unless you can't come out using tips below.

Tips -

  * you can't change what happened in past, but your action now can change the future. So, just let it all go and be free for a while till you feel better.
  * you can beat the mental stress by physically stressing yourself in gym.

  * Plan for a Trip to most beautiful places in the world with your close friend or alone also if you feel good. I suggest plan it with your friends.

  * Share your problem with your friends or mom/dad. Problems and paintings are same, differs on views.

  * Music changes any mood. Listen to your favourite song and dance crazy.

  * Think of changes you can have in your life, a diversion to make things easy. Pain still lingers in heart but its time to learn how to survive with pain and
not about quitting it.

I come out of my stress, through music, gym and friends. Peace of mind is more important to live a happy and cool life.
Will share if i have any new tips. Time to look for yourself!
