Coconut Oil Powerful Antioxidant That Prevents Aging
Although at first there were doubts about them, little by little all the benefits of coconut oil are being discovered, since as research progresses it is being discarded as a saturated fat that should be avoided, now there is no doubt that coconut oil is an excellent antioxidant that prevents aging.

Coconut Oil Powerful Antioxidant That Prevents Aging


According to some recent research, coconut oil is the best ally to prevent the passage of time and one of the indispensable ingredients in anti-wrinkle creams, so daily application of coconut oil can work as an effective anti-aging treatment.

Apart from this, it acts as a natural lubricant. Oily or lubricated skin can be protected from wrinkles. This was demonstrated by a study conducted by Japanese researchers, who found that oily skin takes much longer to develop wrinkles compared to dry skin, so it is highly recommended to use coconut oil.

It is also responsible for giving the skin the suppleness and resilience of youth. Remember that from the age of 30 the production of collagen begins to decrease, giving way to wrinkles. Therefore the regular use of coconut oil can help stimulate the production of collagen in the body, thus reducing wrinkles.

Such research also showed that coconut oil has positive antioxidants that can help delay the appearance of wrinkles and thus delay aging. It should be noted that oxidation is one of the main causes of skin aging, apart from helping to reduce the damage caused by free radicals.

Now what is the coconut oil you should use? Virgin coconut oil is extracted from coconut milk or coconut grains with a minimum of heat. This can be found in almost any shop or supermarket on a regular basis.

In case you want to make your own natural anti-wrinkle night cream made from coconut oil, you should do the following:

Ingredients


½ cup virgin coconut oil

½ teaspoon vitamin E oil

½ teaspoon lemongrass essential oil

How to prepare it


Place the coconut oil in a blender and process until it looks fluffy.

Add the rest of the oil.

Store in a glass container in a cool, dry place.

Remember to apply it to the skin every day before sleeping, so you can get a wrinkle-free skin.

Keto Homemade Basil Pesto Sauce Recipe
If you're on a keto or ketogenic diet, you probably miss some recipes that you used to take on a regular basis.

Would you like to have a delicious Pesto Sauce that is suitable for the low-carbohydrate diet?

In this post I'm going to show you a quick, very easy and cheaper way than the original.

And you can use it in many recipes to give flavor to your dishes.

History of pesto sauce


Pesto is a sauce typical of the Italian region of Liguria, whose capital is Genoa. That is why it is sometimes called "pesto genoves".

The word "pesto" comes from the Genoese word "pestare", which means to grind or crush in a mortar.

Originally, pesto was made by crushing in the mortar, and even today many people still do so. But with the rush of modern life, many of us use a mincer or a food processor.

Traditionally, pesto has 7 ingredients, and better if they all come from the Ligurian region: fresh basil leaves, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese, Pecorino cheese, extra virgin olive oil, garlic and coarse salt.

The version I present to you is a variant suitable for the keto diet, although you should not abuse the amount you take.

Instead of pine nuts, I use pecan nuts, because they have less carbohydrates and because they are cheaper than pine nuts: good ones are very expensive!

Go ahead and tell me if you liked it!

Swerve Brown Sugar Note*

  • Measured the same as brown sugar: If your recipe requires a cup of brown sugar, simply replace it with a cup of Swerve. Since it's measured as brown sugar, using Swerve in your favorite recipes will be amazing.
  • Zero net carbohydrates: The components of Swerve do not affect blood sugar, so the carbohydrates it contains are considered no impact.
  • Keto-friendly: Because Swerve is not glycemic, it's the perfect sweetener for use in ketogenic recipes.
  • It contains only the highest quality ingredients. Swerve's ingredients come from Europe and North America - there are no ingredients from China.

8 Ways To Get Energy in The Morning Without Coffee
It seems difficult but it is possible to start the day well animated without drinking coffee. Here are some alternatives that will help you improve your performance and energy without drinking caffeine.

Whether it's because you can't drink caffeine or you have an energy deficiency that even coffee can't raise, this list will give you the opportunity to try new alternatives to get enough energy to keep you active all day long.

1. Glass of water after waking up


After a night's sleep, you're pretty dehydrated. Put a large glass of water on your bedside table and drink it immediately after waking up. You will immediately feel refreshed and a lot more awake.

2. Cold shower


A steaming hot shower wakes you up quietly and relaxed, but it doesn't really wake you up energetically. Shower lukewarm and end your shower session with cold water. A little bit of a bite, but after that you're fresh and fruity.

3. Apple


Natural sugars give you much more energy than a cup of coffee. Yes, the black gold gives you a fat boost, but you also crash just as fast. It's better to eat an apple about an hour after you wake up. Then your cortisone sheet starts to descend. Cortisol is a hormone that makes your mind awake and alert.

4. Red


The color red stands for fire, passion and movement. Researchers also claim that it gives you energy. Wear a red garment or paint your nails in a bright red tone and you'll think you're the bull in the office.

5. Walk


"Let's get some fresh air", how many times have you heard that? Well, the cliché pronunciation is one of the best tips to get energy. The combination of movement and fresh air really does you good. Walk the last bit in the morning to work. Do you feel like you're being silly in the afternoon? Skip the 4 hour soup and walk around the building.

6. Smelling citrus and mint


These two elements have the potential to activate certain areas of your brain according to aromatherapy studies, where citrus fruits have the capacity to fill your brain with energy at least in the morning hours, when it is recommended to smell oranges or mint. We recommend that at breakfast, take advantage of the shell of your orange or tangerine and double to exploit its aroma.

7. LOL moment


A round of funny Facebook movies isn't that crazy. Research by the University of Nebraska showed that people who watched a funny movie had a lot more energy than people who didn't. Laughing increases your blood level, heart rate and makes you feel good. Just a few minutes to talk to your manager...?

8. Chewing gum


Skip the coffee, throw a gum in your face while you're in the car / on the bike / public transport. Chew on it. Research shows that chewing gum chewers have a faster reaction, can concentrate better and even have a better mood. Also great for your desk. Because you chew continuously, your brain receives more oxygen. This effect is gone after fifteen minutes. Fortunately, the average gum will also become petrified by then.
