Certain fibres contained in prepared foods such as cereals, cereal bars, baking mixes, and drinks may cause a shift towards beneficial bacteria in the gut and assist in weight loss when made part of a long-term, daily diet, says a new research.

The researchers focused on two fibres - polydextrose, which is a common fibre food additive and soluble corn fibre.

"We need more fibre in our diets from lots of different sources," said Hannah Holscher from the University of Illinois in the US.

"These two fibres look like they could be beneficial when included in a balanced diet along with whole grains, fruits, vegetables and legumes," Holscher added.

The researchers found that there were significant shifts in the gut bacterial populations with fibre supplements and when the supplements were stopped populations seemed to go back to where they were before.

What was most surprising and novel in the recent study was a shift in the Bacteroidetes:Firmicutes ratio towards more Bacteroidetes, something the researchers had not viewed previously.

"This was of particular interest to us because other research works have shown that having more Bacteroidetes may be beneficial because the higher that proportion is, the individual tends to be leaner. With higher Firmicutes, that individual tends to be more obese," Holscher said.

The researchers used whole-genome sequencing to explore the full range of bacterial genomic information in the gut after fibre supplementation.

Previous research has shown that dietary fibre can also help reduce the risk of colon cancer, type 2 diabetes and other diseases.Read more at:sexy prom dresses

BEWARE: Harmful Effects Of Lipsticks

Every woman will have her favourite lipstick shade in her cosmetic box. There is no doubt that it is important to highlight a woman’s lips. After all, they are referred to as the ‘rosy lips’.

But, there are many disadvantages of using lipsticks because of the materials that are used in making them.

Care should be taken to use lipsticks only on special occasions or make sure that you apply lipstick once a day only. The quality of the lipstick also matters. Always prefer quality products, avoid cheap and low grade ones. This will drastically solve most of the problems that are caused by the lipsticks.

BEWARE: Harmful Effects Of Lipsticks

There are a few things that you need to consider when it comes to lips care. Apart from the direct action on lips, the harmful chemicals in the lipsticks can be dangerous to your overall health as well. The constant contact with skin and accidental entry into the body system through licking are the common reasons for this.

The following are a few harmful effects of lipsticks that can occur if you use low quality products constantly.

Heavy Metals

Studies have shown that lipsticks have concerning levels of chromium, cadmium and magnesium. This will result in increasing your risk to dangerous diseases and organ damage. High levels of cadmium can be stored in the kidney and finally result in renal failure. Applying and re-applying lipsticks many times during the day can lead to stomach tumors. These are some of the harmful effects of lipsticks.

Lead

It has been revealed that most of the lipsticks have a dangerously high amount of lead. Lead is a neurotoxin and can affect the nervous system. It can also cause brain damage. This is one of the reasons for hormone imbalance and infertility. Even if it's taken in small quantities, it can have drastic effects on the body.

Petrochemicals

This is one of the materials used in making lipsticks. This is also harmful for the health. These are chemicals that are made from crude oil and natural gas. Consumption of this can cause endocrine disruption, which interferes with growth, reproduction, development and intelligence. This is one of the harmful effects of lipsticks.

Formaldehyde and Mineral Oil

Formaldehyde is a preservative, which is also known as human carcinogen. Wheezing, coughing, irritation of the eyes and skin are other effects of formaldehyde. Mineral oil is another ingredient which is used in lipstick to block the pores. Many of the harmful effects of lipsticks are due to these chemicals.

Parabens and Bismuth oxy chloride

These are two other ingredients that are used in the making of lipsticks. The harmful effect of lipsticks is due to the carcinogenic property of these two ingredients. The parabens act as preservatives just like the formaldehyde. Though this is used in preserving the lipstick, it is very harmful for the body.

Never compromise on quality while buying lipsticks. Keep their use minimum. You can also try homemade lipsticks for safety reasons.Read more:prom dress shops
