Two-faced food

The ancient Greek sage Sirodod has a famous saying: a person’s tonic may be another person’s poison. Although this sentence is a bit extreme, it tells us the fact that not every food is suitable for everyone. Natural foods are rich in nutrients, but because of each body’s quality, certain foods may be “angels” for some people, but “devils” for some people. What kind of “two-faced” traits are more obvious in life?

Dragon fruit √ constipation × diarrhea

The “fruit seeds” rich in dragon fruit are mostly fibrous and cannot be digested and absorbed by the intestines, but will stimulate intestinal peristalsis and promote the excretion of intestinal contents more quickly. Therefore, people who have constipation problems because of daily dietary fiber deficiency are very suitable for eating fruit with seeds and can improve constipation. In the same way, other fruits containing small seeds, such as strawberries, kiwi, mulberry, etc., can also prevent constipation. However, if people who have diarrhea eat too much of this seeded fruit, it will aggravate the symptoms of diarrhea.

糯 rice √ digested poor × high blood sugar

Most of the glutinous rice is amylopectin. After heating, the amylopectin will gelatinize, which is beneficial to the decomposition of digestive enzymes and is more digestible. Therefore, glutinous rice is especially suitable for people with poor digestion ability. However, the digestive capacity of diabetic patients is generally very good. The easy-to-digest glutinous rice is a kind of “high glycemic index” food for them, which is not conducive to controlling blood sugar after eating. Similar to glutinous rice, there are also paste foods. People with diabetes should reduce their frequency of eating.

Soda water, more stomach acid, less stomach acid

Soda water mainly refers to water containing sodium bicarbonate. It has strong alkalinity. It can make the urine alkaline in the kidney, which is good for the kidney to discharge uric acid. Therefore, the gout can drink soda water in moderation. In addition, people who have too much gastric acid secretion can also drink more and can neutralize stomach acid. However, people with too little gastric acid secretion should not drink soda water, otherwise it will increase the lack of stomach acid. It is best for high blood pressure patients not to drink soda because it contains more sodium, and reducing sodium intake is an important measure to treat high blood pressure.

Ginger soup, cold, cold, cold, cold, cold

Colds can be divided into two types: wind and wind. The symptoms of a cold-type cold are usually chills, runny nose and so on. Ginger is warm, just the cold “killer”, with the effect of fever, hurricane, and cold. Therefore, such patients drink ginger soup can drive away the “chill” and improve the symptoms of colds. The wind-heat type of cold is mostly caused by sore throat and jaundice. If such patients drink ginger soup, it will be like “fueling on fire”, which will inevitably be counterproductive.

Low sodium salt √ high blood pressure × poor kidney

The low sodium salt refers to the salt with relatively low sodium content, that is, the salt of potassium chloride and magnesium chloride is used to replace a part of sodium chloride. Generally, the sodium content is about 25% less than that of ordinary salt, but the saltiness is basically the same as ordinary salt. Therefore, low sodium salts help blood pressure control in patients with hypertension. Potassium ions are excreted through the kidneys. Therefore, when the kidney function is impaired, the potassium ions in the human body cannot be completely discharged to cause accumulation, and the blood potassium rises over a long period of time, posing a cardiovascular threat.

枸 杞 √ common eye person × firer

It is the most abundant food containing zeaxanthin in natural foods and is also rich in carotene. Zeaxanthin is the main pigment of the macula of the retina, which effectively filters ultraviolet light and blue-violet light to prevent eye damage. Carotene can be converted into vitamin A in the human body. Vitamin A is an important raw material that constitutes the photosensitive substance of the eye, which can increase the smoothness of the cornea and make the eyes bright and radiant. Therefore, people who often use their eyes should eat more sputum, but they are warmer, so people who are prone to get angry, have a fever, and have inflammation in their bodies should eat less.

Big garlic, poor immunity × eye patients

Allicin in garlic is a broad-spectrum antibacterial substance that is as effective as an antibacterial agent. It activates cells, increases antibacterial and antiviral properties, speeds up metabolism, relieves fatigue and enhances immunity. In addition, eating garlic often helps fight a variety of cancers. However, garlic has a stimulating effect on the mucous membrane of the eye. Therefore, patients with eye diseases must pay attention to the mouth during the treatment.
