I`ve just tried green tea for the first time, and find it a bit funny tasting. Would adding a spoon of sugar result in a loss of its benefits?

Green Tea

No, the sugar shouldn't have any effect on the benefits of the tea. Green tea is a little funny-tasting, but it's loaded with antioxidants, which are greatly used for anti-aging purposes and even with mental health and memory loss. Making "green iced tea" is another way to add extra antioxidants into your diet. I use green tea bags under my eyes for puffiness. Works like a charm! Also, if you want to keep it low-cal, you could try "Equal" instead of sugar.

   
I tried a 1 oz of wheatgrass for the first time today. It was served with a piece of lemon to chew on. Loved the taste and energizing sensation in my stomach right after drinking it. But 1 hour later, I started having running nose and sneezing. My eyes got teary. All of this lasted for 30 minut

Side Effects Of Wheat Grass Juice

Wheat grass juice is a very powerful internal body cleanser. The fresh juice of the grass produces high concentrations of chlorophyll, active enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. The chlorophyll helps brings toxins into the bloodstream that may have been stored in cells or in fatty tissue. The cleansing effect of wheat grass juice may cause you experience nausea. It is best to start with 1 oz. and slowly work up to a higher quantity. For optimal results, drink it on an empty stomach.

   
What foods are good and bad to eat when one has gout?

Diet Tips For Gout Sufferers

According to an article in WebMD, there are definitely foods that break down into uric acid and aggravate gout. Foods rich in purines that are most often the culprits are fatty red meats; organ meats; and certain fish including herring, mackerel, and a few others.

If you are looking for a temporary way of straightening your wavy hair, the new hot straighteners take the lead. There are ones which now allow wet hair to be straightened without blow or air drying first.

The hot straighteners costs between $20.00 - $150.00 and are two ceramic or porcelain plates. These range from different width sizes of 1/2 inch to 3 inch straighteners.

They heat up very quickly and give you an option of how hot you want the straightener. To straighten shoulder length wavy wair, should take 10 minutes.

   
How is sperm motility improved?

Increasing Sperm Motility

Increasing sperm motility is an issue to discuss with a physician. Web MD mentions an Italian study that may in the future help couples with fertility issues. The study used carnitine supplements to help the sperm become more "mobile." Carnitine is sold over the counter.

Carnitine is not regulated by the government, so Web MD stresses that men should tell their doctors immediately if they are considering starting carnitine.

The study is very new, so men interested in the subject should keep up with current information.
