អត្ថប្រយោជន៍សុខភាពដែលអាចទទួលបានពីការបរិភោគបន្លែ Swiss Chard (Possible Health Benefits Of Consuming Swiss Chard)

Swiss chard
Swiss chard is also commonly known as silver-beet, spinach beet, perpetual spinach, crab beet and mangold.
Excerpt from Medical New Today,

Nutritional breakdown 

According to the USDA National Nutrient Database, one serving (one cup) of cooked (boiled, without salt) chard (about 175 grams) contains 35 calories, 3.3 grams of protein, 0.2 grams of fat, and 7.2 grams of carbohydrate (including 3.7 grams of fiber and 1.9 grams of sugar).

Swiss chard

Swiss chard is also commonly known as silverbeet, spinach beet, perpetual spinach, crab beet and mangold.

One cup of cooked Swiss chard provides approximately 716% of vitamin K needs, 214% of vitamin A, 53% of vitamin C, 38% of magnesium, 29% of manganese, 27% of potassium, 22% of iron, 17% of vitamin E.

Lesser amounts of thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6, calcium, phosphorus, zinc and selenium are also included.

Swiss chard contains the antioxidants alpha and beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, and choline.

One cup of raw Swiss chard (about 26 grams) contains 7 calories, 0.7 grams of protein, 0.1 grams of fat, and 1.4 grams of carbohydrate (including 0.6 grams of fiber and 0.4 grams of sugar).

Possible health benefits of consuming Swiss chard

Consuming fruits and vegetables of all kinds has long been associated with a reduced risk of many adverse health conditions. Many studies have suggested that increasing consumption of plant foods like Swiss chard decreases the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and overall mortality while promoting a healthy complexion, increased energy, and overall lower weight.

Lowering blood pressure

People who consume diets that are low in the minerals calcium, magnesium and potassium are more likely to have high blood pressure. These minerals are thought to bring blood pressure down by releasing sodium out of the body and helping arteries dilate.

It is important to note that taking these minerals in supplement form will not provide the same health benefits as when they are consumed in food. Swiss chard contains all three of these healthy minerals and can help improve intake, especially with magnesium.1

According to a 2013 study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, foods high in dietary nitrates like Swiss chard have been shown to have multiple vascular benefits, including reducing blood pressure, inhibiting platelet aggregation, and preserving or improving endothelial dysfunction.

Combating cancer

Swiss chard contains chlorophyll, which has shown to be effective at blocking the cancer-causing heterocyclic amines generated when grilling foods at a high temperature.2 Make sure to consume leafy greens and other vegetables high in chlorophyll along with grilled meats to hinder some of their carcinogenic effects.

Managing diabetes

Swiss chard contains an antioxidant known as alpha-lipoic acid, which has been shown to lower glucose levels, increase insulin sensitivity and prevent oxidative stress-induced changes in patients with diabetes. Studies on alpha-lipoic acid have also shown decreases in peripheral neuropathy or autonomic neuropathy in diabetics.4

Of note, the alpha-lipoic acid studied was administered intravenously, and it is not yet clear if oral intake will elicit the same effects.

Preventing osteoporosis

Adequate vitamin K consumption can improve bone health by acting as a modifier of bone matrix proteins, improving calcium absorption and reducing urinary excretion of calcium. Low intakes of vitamin K have been associated with a higher risk for bone fracture.3 Increase your vitamin K intake with leafy greens such as Swiss chard, arugula and spinach, which also add extra calcium to the diet. Raw Swiss chard contains more than 300% of your daily need for vitamin K in one cup!

Improving athletic performance

Dietary nitrates have been shown to improve muscle oxygenation during exercise, suggesting that an increased dietary nitrate intake has the potential to enhance exercise tolerance during long-term endurance exercise and possibly improve quality of life for those with cardiovascular, respiratory, or metabolic diseases who find activities of daily living difficult because of lack of oxygenation.

In one study, beetroot juice (high in dietary nitrates) improved performance by 2.8% (11 seconds) in a 4-km bicycle time trial and by 2.7% (45 seconds) in a 16.1-km time trial.5

Swiss chard rivals beetroot in nitrate content.

Having hard time to increase your fluid intakes?

we should try a better way to increase our fluid intakes particularly during summer or if you live in tropical countries.

We are used to seeing slices of lemon in the glasses of water that are served in restaurants. But have you ever thought of adding cucumber slices to your H2O?

Cucumbers add a fresh, light flavor to chilled water. The vegetable also is a good source of vitamin C, vitamin K and potassium. Wash the cucumber, cut it into thin slices and add a few pieces to your water.

There are health benefits to drinking more water. Water helps your body:

  • Keep your temperature normal
  • Lubricate and cushion joints
  • Protect your spinal cord and other sensitive  tissues
  • Get rid of wastes through urination, sweat, and bowel movements

តើកំពូលអាហារទាំង ១០ ដែលមានសុខភាពល្អ គឺអ្វីខ្លះ ? (What Are The Top 10 Healthy Foods?)

Fuji apple

1 - Apples

Apples are an excellent source of antioxidants, which combat free radicals. Free radicals are damaging substances generated in the body that cause undesirable changes and are involved in the aging process and some diseases.

Some animal studies have found that an antioxidant found in apples (polyphenols) might extend lifespans.

Sa almonds

2 - Almonds

Almonds are rich in nutrients, including magnesium, vitamin E, iron, calcium, fiber, and riboflavin. A scientific review published in Nutrition Reviews3 found that almonds as a food may help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

Broccoli and cross section edit

3 - Broccoli

Broccoli is rich in fiber, calcium, potassium, folate and phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are compounds which reduce the risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and some cancers. Broccoli also contains vitamin C, as well as beta-carotene, an antioxidant.


4 - Blueberries

Blueberries are rich in fiber, antioxidants and phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are natural chemicals found in plants.

Unlike minerals and vitamins that are also found in plant foods, phytonutrients are not essential for keeping us alive. However, they may help prevent disease and keep the body working properly.

5 - Oily fish

Examples of oily fish include salmon, trout, mackerel, herring, sardines and anchovies.
These types of fish have oil in their tissues and around the gut. Their lean fillets contain up to 30% oil, specifically,omega-3 fatty acids. These oils are known to provide benefits for the heart, as well as the nervous system.
Oily fish are also known to provide benefits for patients with inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis.
Oily fish also contain vitamins A and D.


6 - Leafy green vegetables

Studies have shown that a high intake of dark-leafy vegetables, such as spinach or cabbage may significantly lower a person's risk of developing diabetes type 2.

Researchers at the University of Leicester, England, said that the impact of dark green vegetables on human health should be investigated further, after they gathered data from six studies. They reported their findings in the BMJ.16

Spinach, for example, is very rich in antioxidants, especially when uncooked, steamed or very lightly boiled. It is a good source of vitamins A, B6, C, E and K, as well as selenium, niacin, zinc, phosphorus, copper, folic acid, potassium, calcium, manganese, betaine, and iron.

Ipomoea batatas 006

7 - Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes are rich in dietary fiber, beta carotene, complex carbohydrates, vitamin C, vitamin B6, as well as carotene (the pink, yellow ones).

The Center for Science in the Public Interest, USA, compared the nutritional value of sweet potatoes to other vegetables.17 The sweet potato ranked number one, when vitamins A and C, iron, calcium, protein and complex carbohydrates were considered.

8 - Wheat germ

Wheat germ is the part of wheat that germinates to grow into a plant - the embryo of the seed. Germ, along with bran, is commonly a by-product of the milling; when cereals are refined, the germ and bran are often milled out.

Wheat germ is high in several vital nutrients, such as vitamin E, folic acid (folate), thiamin, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus, as well as fatty alcohols and essential fatty acids.

Wheat germ is also a good source of fiber.


9 - Avocados

Many people avoid avocados because of its high fat content; they believe that avoiding all fats leads to better health and easier-to-control body weight - this is a myth. Approximately 75% of the calories in an avocado come from fat; mostly monosaturated fat.
Weight-for-weight, avocados have 35% more potassium than bananas.

Avocados are also very rich in B vitamins, as well as vitamin K and vitamin E.

Avocados also have a very high fiber content of 25% soluble and 75% insoluble fiber.

Studies have shown that regular avocado consumption lowers blood cholesterol levels.

Avocado extracts are currently being studied in the laboratory to see whether they might be useful for treating diabetes or hypertension.


10 - Oats

Oats is rich in complex carbohydrates, as well as water-soluble fiber, which slow digestion down and stabilize levels of blood-glucose.

Oatmeal is very rich in B vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, folate, and potassium.

Studies have shown that if you eat a bowl of oatmeal everyday your blood cholesterol levels, especially if they are too high, will drop, because of the cereal's soluble fiber content.

លំហាត់ប្រាណ៦ ជួយ "កែលម្អ" ឥរិយាបថដងខ្លួនមិនល្អ ( 6 Exercises to Help “Fix” Bad Posture)

exercises for bad posture

Posture affects how you walk, sleep, sit, and stand. Improper alignment creates continuous tension and can lead to muscle and head aches.

Proper posture prevents fatigue and wear-and-tear on ligaments and joints. It is important for good blood circulation and full breathing. You should know what good posture looks like so you have something with which to compare what you see in the mirror:

If you’re a sloucher, here are some exercises that will transform your bad posture habit into a better-looking, more healthful one–and keep your mother off your back.

1. Chin Tuck

If you normally hold your head forward from your shoulders, this exercise will strengthen your neck muscles so you’ll find it easier to hold that 10-pound rock on the top of your body in its proper position. It can be done sitting or standing–a good little exercise break from pounding away at the computer.

  • Start with your shoulders rolled back and down.
  • Looking straight ahead, place two fingers on your chin, slightly tuck it and push your head back; tucking your chin as far under as is comfortable to get a stretch.
  • Hold 3-5 seconds, then release.
  • Repeat 10 times.

This is good exercise to do in your car, using the headrest as opposing stationary force (only while car is stopped, of course).

  • Follow steps 1 and 2 above.
  • Press the back of your head into the headrest for 3-5 seconds.
  • Repeat 15-20 times.

2. Doorway Stretch

This one feels so good. It will open and loosen tight chest muscles.

  • Stand in a doorway and place your leg closer to the doorjamb slightly bent and in front of you, the opposite leg behind with the ball of the foot on the floor.
  • Lift your arm so that your elbow is parallel to the floor with your lower arm resting on the doorjamb, hand up.
  • Slowly lean into your raised arm and push against the doorjamb for 7-10 seconds.
  • Relax and lean again, pushing your chest forward through the doorway into a slight lunge. Hold for 7-10 seconds.
  • Repeat 2-3 times on each side, alternating between sets.

3. Hip Flexor Stretch

  • Kneel on your right knee with the top of your foot on the floor.
  • Place your left foot flat on the floor in front of you.
  • Place both hands on your left thigh and press your hips forward until you feel a stretch in your hip muscles.
  • Contract your abdominal muscles and tilt your pelvis slightly back, keeping your chin parallel to the floor.
  • Hold 20-30 seconds, then switch your legs and repeat for the other side.

resistance band v move stretch

4. V-Move

The resistance band provides just the right amount of stress for you to stretch your neck and shoulders, strengthening as you do.
  • While standing, place one foot forward so your knees are slightly bent.
  • Place the resistance band under the ball of each foot and grab one end of the band with each hand.
  • Lift your arms up and out from your body with elbows slightly bent, slowing raising them until they are at shoulder level. Keep shoulder blades down and back (and head) straight.
  • Hold 2-4 seconds and return to the starting position.
  • Repeat slowly for 2 minutes.

Perform this exercise 5 days a week for noticeable relief of shoulder and neck pain and improved posture.

5. Wall Angel

  • Stand with your back against a wall with your feet about four inches from it. Keep knees slightly bent. Your buttocks, spine, and head should all be touching the wall.
  • Bring your arms up with the elbows bent at right angles and squeeze your shoulder blades together, forming the letter “W” with your head in the middle.
  • Hold for 3 seconds.
  • Straighten your elbows and raise your arms to form the letter “Y”. Keep your shoulders down.
  • Repeat 10 times moving from “W” for 3 seconds, then to “Y”.
  • Do 2-3 sets.

resistance band x move stretch

6. X-Move

Using a resistance band gives your muscles something to work against. This exercise strengthens the rhomboid muscles (major and minor) in your upper back between the shoulder blades.
  • Sit on the floor with legs extended forward and straight. Place the middle of the resistance band around the bottom of your feet and cross one side over the other to make an “X” over your legs.
  • Grab the ends of the band with arms extended in front of you.
  • Pull the ends of the band toward your hips and bend your elbows so they point back and slightly upward.
  • Hold 2-4 seconds and slowly return to starting position.
  • Repeat 8-12 times for three sets.

ផលប្រយោជន៍សុខភាពនៃមើម Fennel (Health Benefits Of Fennel)

Fennel is easily recognized by its pale bulb and long green stalks, and can be grown almost anywhere.
Excerpt from Medical New Today - What are health benefits of fennel?

Nutritional breakdown 

One raw fennel bulb contains only 73 calories, 0.5 grams of fat, 0 milligrams of cholesterol, 2.9 grams of protein, 17 grams of carbohydrate, and 7 grams of dietary fiber (28% of daily requirements).

The same serving provides 27% of daily potassium needs, 5% of sodium, 6% vitamin A, 11% calcium, 46% vitamin C, 9% iron, 5% vitamin B-6 and 10% of daily magnesium needs.

Fennel also contains phosphorous, zinc, copper, manganese, selenium, niacin, pantothenic acid, folate, choline, beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin (vision), vitamin E and vitamin K.

In addition to all of these nutrients, fennel also contains dietary nitrates and is a natural source of estrogen.

Possible health benefits of consuming fennel

Bone health
The iron, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc and vitamin K content present in fennel all contribute to building and maintaining bone structure and strength.

Though phosphate and calcium are both important in bone structure, the careful balance of the two minerals is necessary for proper bone mineralization - consumption of too much phosphorus with too little calcium intake can result in bone loss.
Iron and zinc play crucial roles in the production and maturation of collagen.
Bone matrix formation requires the mineral manganese, and iron and zinc play important roles in the production and maturation of collagen.
Low intakes of vitamin K have been associated with a higher risk for bone fracture. Adequate vitamin K consumption is important for good health as it acts as a modifier of bone matrix proteins, improves calcium absorption and may reduce urinary excretion of calcium.5
Blood pressure
Maintaining a low sodium intake is essential to lowering blood pressure, however increasing potassium intake may be just as important because of its vasodilation effects. According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, fewer than 2% of US adults meet the daily 4,700 mg recommendation.4

In addition, potassium, calcium and magnesium (all present in fennel) have been found to decrease blood pressure naturally.6

Dietary nitrates present in certain foods such as fennel have been found to lower blood pressure and protect the heart due to their vasodilatory and vasoprotective properties. One study conducted by the Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences showed that participants' blood pressure levels were lower after taking nitrate supplements that contained nitrate amounts equivalent to 150-250 grams of nitrate-rich vegetables than after taking a placebo.9

Heart health

Fennel's fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin C, vitamin B-6 and phytonutrient content, coupled with its lack of cholesterol, all support heart health.

Fennel contains significant amounts of fiber, which helps lower the total amount of cholesterol in the blood, thereby decreasing the risk of heart disease.

In one study, those who consumed 4,069 mg of potassium per day had a 49% lower risk of death from ischemic heart disease compared to those who consumed less potassium (about 1,000 mg per day).

Vitamin B-6 and folate prevent the buildup of a compound known as homocysteine. When excessive amounts of homocysteine accumulate in the body, it can damage blood vessels and lead to heart problems.


Selenium is a mineral that is not present in most fruits and vegetables, but can be found in fennel. It plays a role in liver enzyme function and helps detoxify some cancer-causing compounds in the body. Additionally, selenium prevents inflammation and also decreases tumor growth rates.

Fiber intakes from fruits and vegetables like fennel are associated with a lowered risk of colorectal cancer.

Vitamin C, vitamin A and beta carotene function as powerful antioxidants that help protect cells against free radical damage.

Fennel also contains folate, which plays a role in DNA synthesis and repair, thus preventing the formation of cancer cells from mutations in the DNA.


The selenium found in fennel has also been found to improve immune response to infection by stimulating production of killer T-cells.


Choline is a very important and versatile nutrient in fennel that helps with sleep, muscle movement, learning and memory. Choline also helps to maintain the structure of cellular membranes, aids in the transmission of nerve impulses, assists in the absorption of fat and reduces chronic inflammation.


Fennel is a source of vitamin B-6, which plays a vital role in energy metabolism by breaking down carbohydrates and proteins into glucose and amino acids. These smaller compounds are more easily utilized for energy within the body.

Digestion and regularity

Because of its fiber content, fennel helps to prevent constipation and promote regularity for a healthy digestive tract.

Weight management and satiety

Dietary fibers are commonly recognized as important factors in weight management and loss by functioning as "bulking agents" in the digestive system. These compounds increase satiety and reduce appetite, making you feel fuller for longer and thereby lowering your overall calorie intake.

Increasing iron absorption

Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies in developed countries and a leading cause of anemia. Pairing foods like fennel that are high in vitamin C with foods that are iron-rich will maximize the body's ability to absorb iron.


Estrogen, which is found naturally in fennel, is crucial in regulating the female reproductive cycle and can also affect fertility. The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center conducted a study on mice, which showed that estrogen also plays an important role in controlling factors that contribute to body weight, such as appetite and energy expenditure.8


Fennel is an excellent source of vitamin C. Collagen, the skin's support system, relies on vitamin C as an essential nutrient that works in our bodies as an antioxidant to help prevent damage caused by the sun, pollution and smoke. Vitamin C also promotes collagen's ability to smooth wrinkles and improve overall skin texture.

Consuming fruits and vegetables of all kinds has long been associated with a reduced risk of many lifestyle-related health conditions. Many studies have suggested that increasing consumption of plant foods like fennel decreases the risk of obesity and overall mortality, diabetes, heart disease and promotes a healthy complexion and hair, increased energy, overall lower weight.

បញ្ហាប្រឈមុខនៃវិសមភាពក្នុងវិស័យសុខាភិបាលរបស់ប្រទេសអូស្ត្រាលី (The persistent challenge of inequality in Australia's health)

Excerpt from the Medical Journal of Australia 

Australia remains a country with significant health inequalities. The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) reports that although Australians have a life expectancy of 82 years — one of the highest among Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries — and the second lowest overall mortality of OECD countries, there are inequalities in age-standardised mortality rates among population groups (

In 2009–2011, males had a mortality rate 1.5 times that of females; people living in remote and very remote areas had a rate 1.4 times that of people in major cities; people living in the lowest socioeconomic status (SES) areas had a rate 1.3 times that of those in areas with the highest SES; and the mortality rate for Indigenous Australians was almost twice that for non-Indigenous Australians. These differences remained much the same as 10 years earlier. Yet not all mortality differences were negative. For example, Asian-born Australian residents had a mortality rate 36% lower than Australian-born residents.
The AIHW estimates that if all Australians had the same death rates as those in the highest SES group, there would have been 6013 fewer deaths from lung cancer — Australia's leading cause of cancer deaths — in 2009–2011. If Australians living in regional and remote areas had the same death rates as those living in urban areas, there would have been 825 fewer deaths from prostate cancer in the same period. That is, nearly 7000 excess deaths due to these two cancers in this 3-year period could be predicted and attributed to differences in area of residence and SES.
In this issue of the MJA, a series of oncology-related articles report inequalities that fit with those reported by the AIHW.
In their perspective article, Fox and Boyce (doi: 10.5694/mja14.01217) highlight how a recent Australia-wide study found that the 7% higher mortality for those living in rural areas compared with those living in urban areas had remained unchanged during the decade from 2001 to 2010. They also cite research which found that mortality was 45% higher for Indigenous people with cancer than for non-Indigenous people.
A further example of cancer-related inequality for Indigenous Australians is provided by Parker and colleagues (doi: 10.5694/mja13.11117), who report that the incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma in the Northern Territory is 5.9 times higher in Indigenous people than in non-Indigenous people.
In relation to non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in New South Wales, Currow and colleagues (doi: 10.5694/mja14.00365) calculated that if resection rates increased, the proportion of people with localised NSCLC dying in the 5 years after diagnosis would decrease by 10%. They found that the resection rate was negatively associated with local health district of residence (with lower rates in remote and very remote areas), being older, having lower SES and not having private health insurance.
Hocking and colleagues (doi: 10.5694/mja14.00046) found that in South Australia, where there is a centralised model of cancer treatment, there was no difference in survival between people with metastatic colorectal cancer living in rural areas and those living in urban areas. This finding supports the AIHW estimates of deaths that might be avoided if people in rural areas had the same death rates as those in urban areas.
A positive development in relation to equity in cancer services is that, as reported by Grogan and Olver (doi: 10.5694/mja14.01089), the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program will be fully implemented by 2020. This means that all Australians aged 50–74 years will be invited to participate in biennial faecal occult blood test screening; currently, only subgroups of the eligible population are invited to participate. Modelling done by Cenin and colleagues (doi: 10.5694/mja13.00112) shows that, compared with not fully implementing the program until 2035, full implementation by 2020 has the potential to prevent an additional 35 000 deaths from bowel cancer over the next 40 years.
