Nutrition-cornerstone of good health | Fast&Up

The COVID-19 pandemic is posing serious productivity and developmental risks around the world. There is no cure for the condition at this time. To stop the virus from spreading, new measures must be developed.

A particular Coronavirus causes COVID-19 (SARS-CoV 2). Coronaviruses are largely responsible for enzootic illnesses in animals, but they can also infect humans. SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) was first reported in 2002. In 2012, the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) was diagnosed and both Zoonotic Infections

SARS, MERS, and COVID-19 epidemics show how dangerous Coronaviruses can be when they infect humans and overcome the species barrier.

Healthy eating habits are not a solution for COVID-19, but they do increase immune system function, promote immunometabolism, and are a modifiable contributor to the development of chronic disease, which is strongly linked to COVID-19 mortality. 

It may have a good impact on COVID-19 since it is a way to help people who are at higher risk for the disease, such as the elderly and those who have pre-existing conditions (non-communicable diseases).

According to the World Health Organization,

Nutrition is the intake of food considered in relation to the body’s dietary needs. Good nutrition – an adequate, well-balanced diet combined with regular physical activity – is a cornerstone of good health. Poor nutrition can lead to reduced immunity, increased susceptibility to disease, impaired physical and mental development and reduced productivity. 

A nutritious diet is important for preventing malnutrition in all of its manifestations, as well as a variety of noncommunicable diseases and ailments. #stayfitwithanand today Collobrating with Fast&Up India to be part of the awareness journey of Daily nutritions for healthy lifestyle. Fast&up Blog Contains various informative blogs on Muscle gain and fitness.

Dietary trends have shifted as a result of increased processed food manufacturing, rapid urbanisation, and changing lifestyles.

Individual demands (e.g., age, gender, lifestyle, degree of physical activity), cultural background, locally accessible foods, and dietary practises will all influence the composition of a diversified, balanced, and nutritious diet. However, the fundamental principles of a healthy diet remain the same.

People are eating more foods that are heavy in energy, fats, free sugars, or salt/sodium, and many are not eating enough fruit, vegetables, and dietary fibre like whole grains.

Did you Know ?

  • Malnutrition in all types, as well as noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and cancer, are all aided by a good diet.
  • Unhealthy eating habits and a lack of physical activity are the primary causes of global health problems.
  • Healthy eating habits begin early in life: breastfeeding promotes healthy growth and cognitive development, as well as providing long-term health benefits such as lowering the chance of being overweight or obese and having NCDs later in life.
  • Total fat intake should not exceed 30% of total energy intake to avoid unhealthy weight gain.
  • saturated fat intake should be less than 10% of total energy intake and trans-fats should be less than 1% of total energy intake, with a shift in fat consumption away from saturated fats and trans-fats to unsaturated fats and the elimination of industrial trans fats.
  • A healthy diet includes limiting free sugar intake to less than 10% of total energy intake. For further health benefits, a further reduction to less than 5% of total energy intake is recommended.
  • In the adult population, limiting salt intake to less than 5 g per day helps to avoid hypertension and lowers the risk of heart disease and stroke.
By 2025, WHO Member States have promised to cut global salt consumption by 30% and to prevent the growth in diabetes and obesity in adults and adolescents, as well as childhood obesity.

The Role of the Physiotherapist in Specific Nutritional or Dietary Advice

  • The food of a patient has an impact on muscle function, and muscular function is one of the most important considerations in physical therapy.
  • Physiotherapists have the ability to learn about a patient's nutritional state, which allows them to refer them to nutritionists when necessary.
  • Nutrition supplements combined with exercise was found to be more effective than nutrition alone in reducing the risk of falling in a randomised study of people with osteopenia or osteoporosis.
  • Another study found that multifaceted therapies, such as nutrition and physical activity, are beneficial in alleviating frailty in the elderly.
  • Physical therapists/physiotherapists who lack the appropriate nutrition-related expertise are not permitted to give dietary counselling, although they play an important role in screening and referring patients who require or benefit from dietary assistance. Diet and nutrition have a direct impact on many of the diseases that physiotherapists address and see.

Easier said than done. The road was filled with hurdles, but with passion and competency; dreams do come true. After multiple attempts at getting the right mix of efficacy, taste, flavor and also imagined perception - the lab in Lugano was ready to start the tryst with the outside world.

The verdict was unanimous. Effervescent tablets had delivered!

We had the right mix which gave results over a period of time. Faster absorption and better bio-availability was an unbeatable combination. A product was needed, which was easy-to- use, practical and fast that gives the desired results - Fast&Up, a new brand in Sports Nutrition took shape!

What is Anatomical pulley? Example of Anatomical pulley

Understanding the Importance of Anatomical Pulleys in Physiotherapy As a physiotherapy student, it is essential to have a good understanding of the human body's anatomy and how it works. One of the essential structures in the body that plays a significant role in movement and biomechanics is the anatomical pulley. In this article, we will explore what an anatomical pulley is, its types, and its importance in physiotherapy. What is an Anatomical Pulley? A pulley is a simple mechanical machine that consists of a wheel that turns readily on the axle, usually grooved for a rope or a wire cable. In the human body, the pulley is replaced by a bone, cartilage, or ligament, and the cord is replaced by a muscle tendon. The tendon is lubricated by synovial fluid, and the surface of the tendon is covered by a thin visceral synovial membrane. The tendon is lubricated so that it may easily slide over the pulley. Classification of Anatomical Pulleys There are mainly four classes of pulleys

Base of Support (BOS) in Physiotherapy

The base of support means the area supported beneath the object. Whenever the base of support is more the stability will be more.  Greater the BOS lower the COG of any object. For example, the fundamental position of standing the BOS is lesser than the lying, so COG in the standing position it is in the higher level whereas in the lying posture it will be just near to the ground as a result lying posture is more stable than any other fundamental position and also it can be maintained for the longer period. The stability is directly proportional to BOS and inversely proportional to COG.
