Some of these rituals such as exercise and washing fruits and vegetables, for example, are really necessary.
But other habits, not only proved to be useless, but often know to be harmful.
Replacement of vitamin pills and supplements that contain artificially produced vitamins
The use of various vitamins and nutritional supplements do not reduce the risk of getting a particular disease and have no effect on your memory and performance. Research done in America on 450 participants, found that vitamins may even have negative effects on health.
Using antibacterial gels that are alcohol free
Antibacterial gels kill much of viruses and bacteria, but only if they contain at least 60% alcohol. In any case, it is better to wash your hands, than to only use antibacterial gel.
Refusing to eat gluten
Unpleasant symptoms such as headache or dizziness resulting from intake on monosodium glutamate or more commonly known as gluten may only occur if you take more than 3 grams. In any other case it is unlikely to have any reaction to this substance.
Cleansing your body with detoxification diets
Detox diets are very popular, but the reality is that we do not need them, because the body is able to face the toxins and detox itself with the help of the liver alone. It does not mean you should completely forget the oxygen cocktails and the healthy smoothies.
Use of organic products
In many countries the regulations of producing organic foods are not regulated, so no one can guarantee that those who have the label “bio” itself weren’t produced and grown with pesticides. The only difference is that you pay more money for those products.
Avoid using the microwave
Yes, the microwave reduces the beneficial ingredients of the food, but same does the oven. In some cases, because cooking period is shorter, microwave could be proved as useful.
