All parents want their children to have beautiful smiles… showing off healthy teeth. It’s a sense of achievement to know they have raised healthy and happy children. And good dental health means looking after your teeth to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

MOST parents are aware that one of the ways to keep teeth healthy is by brushing regularly but what many are not aware of is the important role diet can play in good dental health. As the saying goes “we are what we eat”.

Adequate nutrition, particularly during the early years, is important for tooth development, eruption and maintenance, as well as for salivary gland function.

Many mothers are not aware that most of a child’s teeth are already formed by the time the baby is born. So it is essential for pregnant mothers to get enough of the required nutrients, especially calcium. This can be obtained from drinking milk or taking calcium supplements.

Young children also need lots of calcium to support the continuing growth of their jawbones and permanent teeth. How is calcium contributing to strong teeth? First, as the teeth form and mineralise, they need adequate calcium and phosphorus to form a hard structure. This takes place over a long period of time. Having an adequate amount of calcium and phosphorus during growth is critical for healthy teeth.

Recent research indicates that mothers’ food choices, by influencing their children’s dietary habits, impact the eruption of primary teeth during the first three years of life and future development of dental caries.

Second, calcium makes jawbones strong and healthy too. Jawbones need to be strong as they hold the teeth in place. There is no denying that milk is a good source of calcium and this is why milk plays an important role in building healthy teeth.

Other than calcium and phosphorus, milk also contains vitamins A and D. vitamin A is important for maintaining the mucous membranes of the mouth and Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption for healthy bones, teeth and growth of the jaws.

Choosing the right food for children helps strengthen their teeth but giving the wrong food too often will affect their dental health. Most parents can easily relate sugary foods to tooth decay. The decay process begins when the bacteria in the mouth breaks down components of saliva. These components adhere to tooth enamel. This is the start of dental plaque.

Dental plaque is a clear, gelatinous material that allows bacteria to remain on the teeth. If dental plaque is not removed frequently (at least once a day) by proper brushing and flossing, the plaque becomes tightly attached to the tooth and only mechanical cleaning can remove it.

This is why frequent visits to a dentist and regular, thorough cleaning by a dental hygienist is very important. Inside this dental plaque, the bacteria ferment dietary carbohydrates for a food source. This fermentation produces lactic and other acids. These acids demineralise the tooth enamel.

As the tooth demineralises, bacteria move into the tooth, decay begins and a cavity is formed. Therefore, to reduce the risk of tooth decay, it is important to minimise sweet and sticky foods and drinks.

Doctors all over the world are up in arms over the dramatic increase in weight – related diseases. Diabetes, high-blood pressure and the like are expected to be top health killers in the next 10 years. The main culprit, as studies have shown, is the unhealthy lifestyle of the so-called microwave generation. Foods, which contain high level of calories but lacks the necessary good nutrients, are digested every-single day by millions of people. It is not surprising that in America, two thirds of its citizens are considered overweight.

As expected, a great number of quick-fix solutions to eradicate the problem are being peddled by so-called diet-gurus. However, though some of the solutions and diet formulae have worked in certain cases, for the most part, those who have indulged in these drastic methods have found themselves regaining the lost weight – big time! This is because the diet formula being marketed does not correspond with the bodies’ cellular level.

In comes the healtsparguide.com. This no – nonsense website caters to all women and men who wish to know more about losing weight effectively but safely. Healthsparguide.com contains valuable links and as the name suggests, guides to various methods on healthy weight loss regiments.

For example, the website features weight loss health spas and spa resorts that, aside from providing stress management treatments, offer realistic programmes covering the basics of having balanced diets, healthful cooking techniques and of course effective weight loss management. These spa resorts may also be referred to as a spa vacation. Instead of intense workouts, adventure activities are offered. These activities rejuvenate the spirit, at the same time helps tone the body.

What else does healthsparguide.com offer? Diet methods that are designed to hunt down and burn fat tissues without starving oneself. Unlike, say, other diet fads that only weakens the body’s system, the prescription in Healthsparguide.com realistically teaches that the problem of being overweight is the result of eating the wrong food, the wrong types of calories per meal and eating meals in the wrong patterns each day. Therefore, you lose weight not by eliminating the carbs or the protein, but by eating the right food at the right intervals.

To further assist those who want to shed excess pounds, an online diet generator is created, “which gives the right daily menu each day so there’s no need to calculate anything while shifting ones calories.” This is done by constantly “alternating the menu between every possible type of calorie, constantly shifting from one type of calorie to the next, ensuring that the scale keeps dropping.”

The website also provides in depth ranking and reviews of leading herbal diet pills. Not all pill manufactured are however featured. The products chosen have, as tested by experts, demonstrated high overall effectiveness, low occurrences of side effects and high success rate. A trim spa in one pill!

Aside from that, the pill is also ranked based on effectiveness, longevity, safety, quickness of results and success rate. Likewise the rating considered the prices, guarantee, reputation, customer service, ease of use and overall satisfaction.

The benefits that one may get with this online guide are truly endless. For one, the weight loss regiments are safe and cost-effective. Two, it logically explains that in order to lose weight, you have to eat the right food at the right time. And three, weight management programmes created by experts are so practical and easy to use. So, instead of going to a day spa, why not spend a couple of minutes of your time browsing through the wonders of healthsparguide.com.
