This is one of the most popular types of milk which are found on the market but many people do not know that it has many health benefits. This type of milk is quite simply low – fat and lower calorie version on the traditional full – fat milk. Many people think that the skim milk is watered down, but it is not and it has the majority of nutrients which are found in the regular milk. The skim milk lack some of the flavors of the whole milk but this type of milk can be very important alternative for people have problems with the obesity. The majority of the low – fat milk is fortified with Vitamin D and Vitamin A because these fat – soluble vitamins are often lost when the fat is extracted from the whole milk. In the past, this type of milk was made by allowing the regular milk to sit and separate which was allowing the high – fat cream to rise to the top and from there they could be skimmed off the top and removed. Nowadays, this type of milk is typically made through a process of centrifugal separation in which most or all of the fat molecules are separated from the remainder of the milk.

Then, this milk is homogenized which is preventing any additional separation between the molecules because they are all made of the same size. In many cases the low – fat milk is fortified with Vitamin D and Vitamin A but the synthetic vitamins are not always as readily as absorbed by our bodies which mean that you maybe will not get the full benefit of these vitamins when you choose skin milk over the whole milk. It is known fact that the glycemic index of the skim milk is higher than the whole fat milk, as the saturated fat can have a stabilizing effect on our blood sugar and the entirety of carbohydrates which are found in this milk come from the sugar (lactose). People, who suffer from diabetes, who use skim milk can cause them to have less control over their blood sugar levels. One of the best abilities which posses the whole milk is to satiate your hunger because it has fat content. The skim milk is low – fat milk which is unable to quell your hunger pangs and this could lead to overeat or to eat less healthy snacks.

When was the last time you thought about your blood pressure? If you're like most people, it probably hasn't been since your doctor mentioned it during your last checkup. But high blood pressure (hypertension) is a serious condition that can lead to life-threatening problems like heart attack and stroke. The good news is that you can lower your risk of hypertension with lifestyle changes.

If you have high blood pressure, you'll probably experience no signs or symptoms of the condition, even if you have extremely high blood pressure.

In very rare cases, and if blood pressure reaches dangerous levels, a person may get headaches or more nosebleeds than normal.

But in the majority of cases, there are no signs or symptoms of hypertension, which is why it has been dubbed the “silent killer.”

If high blood pressure goes undetected for a long period of time, the condition can damage your heart, blood vessels, kidneys, and other parts of your body.

For some people, it takes being diagnosed with coronary heart disease, stroke, or kidney failure to learn that they also have high blood pressure.

Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a chronic disease in which the lining of the large intestine (colon) becomes inflamed.

The colon then develops ulcers (open sores) that produce blood, pus, and mucus.

The small intestine is rarely affected.

The combination of inflammation and ulcers often causes abdominal discomfort, frequent bowel movements, and bloody stools.

Ulcerative colitis is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), but it's not the same as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Although the disorders share some of the same symptoms, such as abdominal pain and diarrhea, inflammation or ulcers do not occur with IBS.

“You know, sometimes I feel well and vital in the world, and sometimes I just feel so distressed I want to pull my hair out by the roots.” ~Sharon Stone.
