Care for your EYES before its too late!
(0) Care for your EYES before its too late!
By Nutritionist Avril 
 
Eyes are one of the most vital organs in the body. A healthy set of eyes implies good vision, which is
important in daily living and the quality of experiences. For the vast majority of humans, sight is the
most prized of the five senses. However, as we age, our eyes endure several changes. Most people
note that seeing close things gets harder between the ages of 40 and 50. Furthermore, many eye
disorders become more common with aging, many people develop visual impairment as they grow
older. Visual impairment has a significant influence on a person's life, causing functional and
psychological concerns. Widespread vision impairment will also slow national economic development,
lower productivity, and raise healthcare expenditures.
 
Despite the fact that Malaysians are growing more health-conscious, many neglect to consider eye
health. According to the Ministry of Health's 2014 National Eye Health Survey, cataracts account for
58 percent of all blindness in Malaysia, followed by diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma.
 
"A cataract is a clouding of the eye's typically clear lens." Seeing through hazy lenses is similar to
seeing through a frosty or fogged-up window for persons who have cataracts. Cataracts can cause
clouded vision, making it difficult to read, drive a car (particularly at night), or see the expression on a
friend's face."

In severe circumstances, untreated cataracts might lead to glaucoma. According to the most recent
National Eye Survey 2018 (NESII) data, untreated cataracts (58.6 percent) are still the primary cause of
blindness in Malaysia. There are no limits to the progression of cataracts. It does not discriminate
based on race, gender, or money. The good news, according to Dr. Salowi, is that 80 percent of these
illnesses are avoidable and/or curable.
 
Even though cataract surgery is the only effective method of eliminating cataracts, if it is not
performed on time, the patient may lose sight because the cataract prevents light from entering the
eye. All in all, treating preventable causes of blindness, particularly cataract, will assist to improve
quality of life, overall health, reduce poverty, and elevate a community's economic position.

蜂胶拥有几千年的药用历史,它被用作口腔消毒剂和伤口治疗中的防腐剂和愈合产品,用于皮肤和伤口的局部治疗。当人们发觉和研究蜂巢时,它的无菌状态引起了注意,并追溯到蜂胶的独特和功效。

 

蜜蜂生存在自然界中,运用了大自然的资源,打造了可居住和抚养蜜蜂的蜂巢。在严峻的生态环境中,蜂巢会面临其他生物的攻击,天气的影响,疾病的传染等的风险。因此,蜜蜂针对这些问题,制造了并运用蜂胶来保护蜂巢。

 

蜂胶是一种天然的复杂混合物,由蜜蜂分泌物和从植物中收集的树脂化合物制成。蜂胶是蜡质性质,也具有抗菌和抗病毒特性,蜜蜂用蜂胶来建造和修复蜂巢裂缝,平滑内壁,并作为保护屏障,调节蜂巢温度和保持其无菌状态。

 

如今,它用于化妆品或作为流行的替代药物用于各种疾病的自我治疗。 蜂胶目前的应用包括用于感冒综合征(上呼吸道感染、普通感冒和流感样感染)的配方,以及可用于伤口愈合、烧伤、痤疮、单纯疱疹和生殖器以及神经性皮炎的皮肤病学制剂。蜂胶还用于漱口水和牙膏中,以预防龋齿和治疗牙龈炎和口腔炎。

Discovery of the antibacterial and antiviral effect of Propolis
(0) Discovery of the antibacterial and antiviral effect of Propolis
By Nutritionist Jaden
 
Propolis has a medicinal history for thousands of years, it is used as an antiseptic and natural remedy
for oral disinfect and topical treatment of skin and wounds. Through the discovery and research on
beehives, the propolis is found to create a highly complex immune defence system which makes the
beehives the most sterile environment known in nature.
 
Bees use natural resources to create beehives where they can live and nurture in nature. In a severe
ecological environment, beehives will confront with external invasion by other organisms, against
wind and rain, risk of infection and more. Therefore, in response to these problems, bees make and
use propolis to protect their hives.
 
Propolis is a natural resinous mixture that bees produce by mixing saliva and beeswax with exudate
gathered from plants. Propolis is waxy in nature and possess antibacterial and antiviral properties.
Bees use it to build and repair cracks in their hives, smooth the inner walls, and act as a protective
barrier, regulating the temperature of the hive and keeping it sterile.
 
Nowadays, propolis is used in cosmetics or as a popular alternative medicine for self-treatment of
various diseases. Current applications of propolis include formulations for cold syndromes (upper
respiratory tract infections, common cold and flu-like infections), as well as dermatological
formulations used for wound healing, treatment of burns, acne, herpes simplex and genitals, and
neurodermatitis. Propolis is also used in mouthwashes and toothpastes to prevent caries and to
treat gingivitis and stomatitis.
