Hair fall pains. Falling hair is a deep concern shared by one and all. Men and women both experience loss of hair for one reason or another. Perhaps environmental factors play a role in hair loss. However, there are plenty of reasons of hair fall, including health issues. If you suffer from an underactive thyroid, you are more likely to experience hair loss. Similarly, there are other medical conditions that can cause hair fall in men and women so much so that men tend to go bald quickly. However, if your hair loss is not due to a medical condition, there are several home remedies for hair fall that can come in handy.

Looking for a quick yet healthy snack for preschoolers? Perhaps you may even be looking for a diabetes-friendly snack idea? This is what you should be trying out instantly. The concept of healthy snacks is perfect for people like you and me, who are facing time constraints and are too busy for extensive cooking.
Our cooking marathons leave us exhausted, most of the time, isn't it? Never mind, today, I bring to you the instant oats mix recipe of my sister in law, though she makes it sans oats.

She would often tell me to give this instant oats mix a tempering with garlic, but I have not done so on previous occasions. This time it was different. I went ahead with her tempering advice, and here I am with my immensely flavorful oats mix recipe. This is a perfect diabetes-friendly recipe if you eliminate cornflakes because corn has a good amount of glucose and cornflakes are processed along with sugar.

This oats recipe is a must try for instant snack lovers as well as diabetic patients…

Your complete Guide on Fiber: Recipes, Foods, Ideas

Are you eating fiber? What type of fiber?
Your body does not digest or absorb fiber, unlike sugar, fats, carbs, and proteins that are broken down by the body. So why do you need fiber? One most important reason is for a proper bowel movement. In simple words, you need dietary fiber to keep your digestive system clean.
Now how does fiber help with a proper excretory system? Well, there are two types of fiber - soluble and insoluble.

This means if you are suffering from frequent constipation, your body lacks adequate dietary fiber. So the first thing you need to do is - opt for the recommended intake of dietary fiber and include whole grains that are rich in fber in your diet.
