Uses and Benefits of Palm Oil

What is Palm Oil?
Palm oil is an edible vegetable oil derived from the mesocarp-reddish pulp of the fruit of the oil palms. It is an inexpensive and mass-produced oil that is known for its versatility. Palm oil is naturally reddish in color because of a high beta-carotene content. Humans used oil palms as far as 5,000 years back. It’s the miracle ingredient in everything from biscuits to shampoo.

Palm Oil helps in Food Security.
From every 100kg of palm fruits, 23 kg of oil is extracted,  due to this high yielding capacity of oil from the palm fruit makes it widely used oil for cooking in countries like Malaysia and Indonesia. Oil palm has ability to produce more food  using less land, in fewer pesticides, and less fertilizer.

Palm oil- land use efficiency.
The search done by United Nation says that the earth will house 9 billion people by 2050. To cover their needs it is estimated that 150 million additional tons of oils and fats will be required each year. To produce that, oil palm requires 38 million hectares of land whereas to make soy bean oil, one would require 375 million hectares of land.

Is Palms Success its greatest enemy?
Palm oil is cheaper than its competitors oil and its versatility makes it a top oil. Its human tendency that cheap means bad and costly means good.  But in this case it is vice versa. Other brands market their oil in a way that a common man feels that palm oil is cheap and bad, but palm oil is been used from over 5000 years has yet to prove everyday to the world that it is good and the best.

Awareness of Meningitis disease

Mother means huge responsibilities, As a mother, I am always on my toes to protect my children from everything possible. I prefer precaution rather than medication, hence I give all the vaccine doses from time to time. I try to be the strongest mother during the vaccination period, as it becomes a tough time handling my son Hetarth.  I was not aware of the Meningitis disease which could be devastating and life-threatening. When my pediatrician mentioned that it was the perfect time to get the first dose of MCV. I then started my search about Menactra Vaccine. I did online research, spoke to many healthcare professionals and questioned my pediatrician.

Then came to a conclusion that Meningococcal Meningitis is a rare but potentially devastating bacterial infection disease causes inflammation of the fluid and membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. This can kill within hours or cause severe life long disability. This disease has an unpredictable effect, to anyone, at any age, anywhere in the world. Meningitis is caused by Neisseria meningitis bacteria. It commonly presents as an infection of the brain (meningitis) and/or infection of the blood (blood poisoning).

Symptoms are like flu such as irritability, high fever, vomiting, nausea and loss of appetite. If symptoms like stiff neck, severe headache, discomfort with bright light, joint pain, drowsiness and confusion (mental changes) are addition then a diagnosis is a must.

Need to take proper precaution as it is a contagious disease which spreads through coughing, sneezing and direct contact with the infected person (kissing).

As I mention always that "Preventing is better that Medication." The prevention measure is vaccination. Vaccinate your child against Meningococcal meningitis and safeguard your child. The Indian Academy of Pediatrics recommends the MCV Vaccine in two doses, first dose at 9 months and the second dose at 4 years.

After the proper research, I was convinced and have booked the vaccination appointment for my son. After knowing about meningitis I thought to share the risk factors and want to create awareness for all the new moms to be alert and opt for life rather than death and long term disability.

It is ten days festival. In this occasion people keep Ganesha’s clay idol privately in homes, or publicly in big pandals.  Chanting of folk songs and Aarti (daily twice - morning & evening) is the best part of this festival.

Their Mandlis of Bappa Morya chantes melodies which freshen up the people travelling back home. Mandlis distributed cute booklet of various types of Aarti to the passengers.  Mandlis created vibes of positive spiritual and devotional songs on the auspicious occasion of #GaneshChaturthi. People easily connected with them and started chanting and enjoying the melodies.

Assurance of Bisleri "The Original Water πŸ’¦ "

Hello!!! Friends,
I would to share my experience about my visit to the Bisleri Plant. My aim to visit the industry was to confirm my trust on my childhood partner Bisleri and also to show their transparency to my mom followers as a concerned mom. This visit was a better understanding of the whole concept of manufacturing a bottle of pure drinking water πŸ’¦

Bisleri is just not an ordinary bottle of water πŸ’¦ instead, it is the purest, safest and healthiest drinking water πŸ’¦  Did you'll know that the bisleri water πŸ’¦  which reaches us has to pass under 10 stages of purification and 114 quality tests.

10 stages of Purification:

1. Collection: Water from different sources is collected with quality test and then considered for further purification.

2. Ozonisation: Bisleri has established a unique, highly reliable Double Ozonisation Process which kills the harmful bacteria.

3. Sand Filter: Removes unwanted solid particles.

4. Carbon Filter: Removed colour, odour and harmful particles.

5. Reverse Osmosis: RO purification which removes soluble solid and salt but it also eliminates minerals which are good for health.

6. Mineralisation: Vital minerals such as Potassium and Magnesium is added to make the water πŸ’¦ healthier and sweet in taste.

7. Micron Filter: Removes the unwanted smallest micron particles.

8. Re-Ozonisation: Increases the oxygen level to improve energy and immune.

9. Careful Bottling: Grade 1 PET Bottles are blown and stretched on the site at 100°C which kills the harmful bacteria. And water πŸ’¦ is filled and packed with modernised equipment.

10. Final Quality Control: Every bottle has code printed stating the batch number, date, time and manufacturing location.

This process proves that Bisleri provides safe and pure water πŸ’¦ compared to boiled water πŸ’¦ as it need to be heated at 100˚ C for 20 min for effectively killing the bacteria and virus present in source waterπŸ’¦ Bisleri having strong legacy of 50 years with commitment towards quality excellence while local brand do not provide such trust.  Bisleri has 135 plants all over the world. Independent survey (Brand Equity) in 2019 reflected consumer trust and positioned Bisleri as India's number one brand of drinking πŸ’¦  Bisleri is very conscious of the environment as they have centers of recycling their bottles. Bisleri has developed 19 check dams in Gujarat. Bisleri also has facilities for rain waterπŸ’¦ harvesting.

It is well said that we believe when we see and hear ourselves. I have seen and heard about the working system of Bisleri. Hence it is registered in my sub conscious that  πŸ’¦ Bisleriwater πŸ’¦ is a promise of purity and goodness. Bisleri is my childhood friend and I can pass on this friendship to my young one. After the verification of what bisleri claims, I can say #HarPaaniKiBottleBisleriNahi

My Experience at Vijay Sales : My Dream Kitchen.

Nowadays reconstructing homes with new technologies and facilities is very common. Everyone wants an upgraded living system. And for women, the first requirement is the kitchen. I as a common woman would like to have a luxurious, compact and upgrade space called Modern Kitchen.

I was working and searching for designs, appliances, techniques etc to modernize "My Dream Kitchen." And my search ended when I visited the newly launched #KitchenStudioz of Vijay Sales at Prabhadevi.

Vijay Sales have displaced ample designer kitchen with the new trendy kitchen appliances. The showroom has a huge set up of modular kitchen which can be compact, elegant, classy and luxurious. It has got great brands with stylish kitchen appliances under one roof. The range includes built-in Hobs, Refrigerators, Ovens, Microwaves, Chimneys, Dishwasher etc which are very attractive. The studio has various brands like @hafele_india @faber_appliances @whirlpool_india and @Elica which showcased their built-in modular kitchen samples. Each design was unique and different. There were so many types of cooktops, hob tops, chimney, dishwashers, ovens, electric kettles, coffee makers, and refrigerators that looked luxurious.

My take as my dream kitchen was on the lovely set of the built-in kitchen by Hafele India. I loved the built-in idea, where the white built-in refrigerator by #hafeleindia  looked more like a royal wardrobe from the outside and hardly took any space in the kitchen. I have perfectly planned my kitchen with appliances and designs laid out by Vijay Sales.

Thanks, Vijay Sales for such an easy but modernized #KitchenStudioz. I loved the @hafele_india display play. I must also mention the polite staff who were ready to help with all the details about the brand.

So, ladies why wait now you know the place, so hurry up!
