Is it Good to have Too much of Everything ?

Excess of everything is bad.

While being careful about your health, it has its set of benefits, getting too fixated on it and overindulging yourself with the minute details can be detrimental in the long run . Here is what you need to be careful about :

Vitamin supplements

Some of us spend a fortune on vitamin pills to supplement our diets but experts say that taking too many tablets can cause problems. ‘’ High dose of vitamin C can potentially cause gastrointestinal discomfort, and excessive amounts of nutrients, such as iron or vitamin A, can be dangerous. For most people, a healthy varied diet should be able to provide all the nutrients needed for health.’’

Painkillers

These are the good way to relieve headaches, but overuse can actually cause more headaches. ‘’Medication overuse for headaches can occur when you take more than the recommended dose. It’s usually advised that over-the-counter pain relief should be taken for no more than three days at a time or for no more than 10 days during a month.’’

Too many naps

Research has shown that short naps can help refresh you, lower stress and improve concentration and alertness. But keep them short for the best health benefits. A sleep specialist says, ‘’ Ideally, you should nap for 10 to 20 minutes and no longer than 30 minutes. After this, you enter a deep sleep, and being woken from that can leave you feeling groggy and disorientated.’’

Citrus fruits

Though they are a rich source of vitamin C, fruit and fruit juices ( especially lemon, orange and grapefruit ) contains a high level of acid, which can damage tooth enamel. ‘’Acid erosion can increase teeth sensitivity, and when eaten regularly, citrus fruits can contribute to the build-up of plaque and tooth decay. I recommend chewing gum to promote the production of saliva to help cancel out the acids’’ says doctor.

Over-moisturizing

Skincare expert says that although it’s important to moisturize, applying too much can make skin ‘lazy’ because it receives signals that it has enough water, lipids, and proteins which can slow down production of these important nutrients. This can leave your skin dry and leads to a vicious circle where you have to use more and more moisturizer.

Exercise

Yes, it’s vital to keep active for all aspects of your health, but overdoing it could make you more prone to infections.

Too many nuts

Nuts are good for your health, but they are very calorie dense( high in fat, low in water), so eating unlimited amounts can easily add several hundred calories a day to your diet.
