A healthy heart is a happy heart!

In this fast-paced life, no one has the time to stop. Compelling timelines, never-ending meetings, to-do lists, responsibilities, and the chase to achieve our goals, all of it consumes most of our time. While it’s healthy to be competitive and strive for the best, it’s not healthy to have a stressful lifestyle. Harmful habits like smoking, unhealthy diet and not getting regular sleep add on to the stress on your body. All of this takes an extreme toll on your heart’s health. It is observed that cardiovascular diseases are the major causes of mortality globally, including India. So how do we look after our heart better?

Let’s take a look at the list of things which we can include in our daily life to have a healthy heart:

  1. Quit smoking today:

Smoking is extremely bad for your health. It affects the vessels that supply blood to your heart and other organs. It also damages blood vessels and causes irreparable damage to the heart. Even passive smoking increases the risk of a stroke by 30%. It’s high time you take care of your heart. So make your life healthier and go smoke-free.

  1. Reduce your alcohol consumption:

Alcohol consumption affects only your liver, you may say. But excessive alcoholic consumption can  result in Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy. This condition results in dilation and thickening of your left ventricles. Although the onset of this heart condition occurs in a much later stage of life, it is wise to cut down on your drinks to safeguard your heart from any future complications.

  1. Keep in check your cholesterol and blood pressure:

Increased blood pressure and excessive cholesterol can also take their toll on your heart. As both of these conditions are risk factors for a heart disease, it is advised to keep them in check with regular health check-ups and change in lifestyle.

  1. Get active:

A day job doesn’t give you enough time to work out regularly. However, simple workouts like brisk walking, and jogging helps you avoid the risk of health conditions. In addition to a healthy work out, spending some time out in fresh air is good for you.It makes you feel relaxed and uplifts your mood. Similarly, we must also make sure that the air we breathe indoors is pure to keep ourselves healthy! To ensure healthy air inside your home, invest in a trustworthy air purifier like Dr. Aeroguard to safeguard you and your family from air pollution, allergens and VOCs.

  1. Keep yourself calm by meditating:

Along with a healthy diet and regular exercise, meditation can help reduce stress and anxiety. It helps to lower blood pressure, breathing rate, adrenaline levels and cortisol levels, producing a sense of calm. Meditation helps you to rebalance and stay centered, which is important for a healthy and happy life.

  1. Enjoy a healthy and a nutritious meal every day:

Make healthier diet choices daily to keep your health in check. Your diet is the source of nutrition for your body, and junk food will not suffice in meeting those requirements. Choose healthier fats, less salt and fresh fruits and vegetables which will enable your body to perform optimally and to regulate bodily functions appropriately. When cooking at home, ensure that you use purified water to prepare your meals, and eliminate the risk of waterborne diseases, bacteria or new age contaminants from entering your body. To do so, bring home Dr. Aquaguard water purifier to give you and your family the assurance of drinking healthy water.

Fast paced life and its various aspects can challenge you both mentally and physically, leaving you in constant state of stress and exhaustion. The onus of balancing out work and play in our lives, is in our control. A few simple changes in lifestyle, improved diet, and meditation can all help you to take care of your heart. This World Heart Day, do your heart a favour. Take a step towards a healthy heart and a happy life.

Ways to keep yourself healthy this Navratri!

Navratri marks the celebration of the nine forms of Goddess Shakti. People in India bring in the festival with much excitement and vibrancy. Along with other fun activities like garba and dandiya, fasting is an integral part of the event. While some people fast for religious reasons, the others do it to detoxify and cleanse the body to build its immunity for the next season. Hence, there are chances of people not being able to keep track of the food they eat and end up indulging in unhealthy cravings.

Here’s a quick guide to staying healthy and energetic during Navratri –

1. Stay hydrated-

Make this your mantra for the nine days to come. Drink loads of coconut water, green tea, buttermilk, lemon juice, and vegetable and fruit juices. Keep yourself healthy and energetic during the festival as you indulge yourself in activities of celebration. Bring home Dr. Aquaguard water purifier today as during all this process a water purifier can help you maintain adequate levels of body fluids and salt by providing healthy drinking water.

2. Plan your meals and eat right-

An abrupt change in diet can impact your body, so it’s vital that you plan your meals. Consume fruits and avoid oily foods. Preparing food and sweets during this festival with clean and healthy drinking water can ensure the good health of your family.

3. Take frequent meals-

It is better to take smaller and frequenter meals. Prolonged fasting can cause weakness, anaemia, fatigue, headaches, and lack of energy. The frequent meals maintain blood sugar levels and ensure that you are fuelled throughout the day. Some healthy mid-day munchies can help keep those hunger pangs at bay.

4. Clean your home-

A clean and a tidy home is essential before the Navratri celebration starts, as it is believed that Goddess Durga visits home that radiates positive energy. Try Euroclean vacuum cleaners as it aids the objective of having a deep clean home, which is not only a reason to welcome the Goddess but also to invite over friends and family.

5. Sound sleep is essential-

Wake up every day of the festival rejuvenated as Dr. Aeroguard air purifier’s clean and healthy air helps you to have a sound and serene sleep after the celebrations. Book a demo now for Dr. Aeroguard air purifier as it also allows elimination of all the smoke after pujas or the traditional havan.

Here’s how you can improve the life of your water purifier

In this day and age, where everything around us is polluted, you need to take help from technology to lead a healthy life. Water purifiers are one of the most important domestic technologies which provide you with clean and purified water. They eliminate impurities and bacteria and give you and your family healthy water. However, water purifiers can efficiently function only when they are maintained well.

In order to maintain the good performance of your water purifiers and avoid any problems/ potential problems in the future, follow these simple tips.

 1. Regularise your water purifier services

It is highly essential for you to get your water purifier serviced regularly as it prevents permanent damage in the future. To maintain its efficient functionality, one can opt for servicing packages which allow service technicians to periodically keep a check on your water purifier. They can check for any concerns and fix them so that your family can drink safe and healthy water.

2. Get your reject water valves cleaned thoroughly

If you have an RO water purifier at home, it is essential to get the reject water valves regularly cleaned. These valves separate the excess TDS from your drinking water and eliminate it from the water purifier. Hence, for the provision of clean and healthy water, allow only trained technicians to clean it thoroughly.

3. Use only genuine replacement parts

Pseudo parts or duplicates can impact the efficiency of the purification process of your water purifiers. As these parts are not authentic, they could cause damage to the machine in the long run, and in the event of a breakdown, would not be covered by the company. So to make sure your water purifier is functioning efficiently, insist on only authentic and high-quality cartridges.

4. Maintain the purifier’s storage tank well

RO purifiers are very low maintenance, but for their optimum performance, it is necessary to clean the storage water tank and drain any water stored beyond 48 hours. Failing to do so may result in stale water that is a breeding ground for bacteria and viruses. A clean storage tank will ensure that all such chances of contamination are eliminated.

5. Make sure the filters of your water purifiers are maintained well

If the source of your water constantly keeps changing or if the water turbidity is too high, it damages the mechanism of your water purifier. Hence, one needs to ensure that your water purifiers’ filters are maintained regularly.

It is important to know that just by owning a water purifier doesn’t necessarily mean that your water is clean. You need to maintain it well by servicing it regularly on the basis of your servicing package and the type of water purifier. If you notice any change in the flow of water or taste of water from your purifier, get your water purifier serviced as soon as possible.

Innovative technology that makes your water healthy!

The human body is an incredible machine, performing various processes throughout one’s life. Water plays an essential role in certain primary functions of the body and is needed for the different organs to function properly. Almost 70% of the human body is made up of water. When water is such an integral part of our body and its functioning, its imperative that we consume pure, safe and healthy water.

As innovation is at its peak and technology around the globe is evolving, the world of water purifiers has benefited greatly. Ordinary water purifiers promise to purify water, making it safe to drink. They remove bacteria and germs from the water too. But, this purified water that we consume, fails to provide our body with much-needed nutrients.

The latest Dr. Aquaguard range of water purifiers, brings Advanced Mineral GuardTM, NutritronTM and BiotronTM technology, making your water not just pure, but healthy too.
Let’s take a closer look at the technology utilized in the water purifiers:

a. Mineral GuardTM
Ordinary water purifiers available in the market not only eliminate the bacteria and viruses but also the natural minerals dissolved in the water. Minerals are highly essential for proper functioning of the body and biological processes. Deficiency or lack of these minerals could cause neurological concerns, tremors, loss of appetite, personality changes, etc. Dr.Aquaguard’s advanced Mineral Guard TechnologyTM goes a step further and not only purifies the water but also retains natural minerals during the purification process.

b. BiotronTM
Water molecules are present in nature in the form of clusters. These clusters are difficult for the body to absorb, as they cannot easily penetrate the cell walls in the human body. This makes the absorption rate of water low. The new age BiotronTM Technology assists in breaking down complex water molecules into fine micro-clusters. The micro clusters which are smaller in size enable the water molecules to penetrate the cell walls, thereby making water more ‘bio-available’.

c. NutritronTM
We receive the maximum amount of nutrients from food. However, it is also true that water consists of many important nutrients that are essential for us. The advanced NutritronTM Technology is a combination of silver-impregnated, activated carbon granules that release essential natural minerals (calcium, magnesium) &micro-nutrients (copper and zinc) in water. This technology fortifies your drinking water making it extremely healthy! In addition to this, it balances the pH level of the water ensuring your daily dose of health.

Bring home the Dr. Aquaguard range of water purifiers and experience this advanced patented technology first-hand. So this monsoon season, book a free home demo and protect your family’s health.
