Attached to the bones of the skeletal system are about 700 named muscles that make up roughly half of a person’s body weight. Each of these muscles is a discrete organ constructed of skeletal muscle tissue, blood vessels, tendons, and nerves.In these organs, muscles serve to move substances throughout the body.

Muscle cells contain protein filaments of actin and myosin that slide past one another, producing a contraction that changes both the length and the shape of the cell. Muscles function to produce force and motion.

In the muscular system, muscle tissue is categorized into three distinct types: skeletal, cardiac, and smooth. Each type of muscle tissue in the human body has a unique structure and a specific role. Skeletal muscle moves bones and other structures. Cardiac muscle contracts the heart to pump blood.

All muscles are made of a kind of elastic tissue. Each muscle consists of thousands, or tens of thousands, of small musculus fibers. Each muscle fiber is about 40 millimeters long. It consists of tiny strands of fibrils.

The strongest muscle based on its weight is the masseter. With all muscles of the jaw working together it can close the teeth with a force as great as 55 pounds (25 kilograms) on the incisors or 200 pounds (90.7 kilograms) on the molars. The uterus sits in the lower pelvic region.

1.Chia pudding.

Chia seeds contain a decent amount of protein and 18 of the 20 essential amino acids. It’s not enough to support a high-protein diet, but could be beneficial in adding a little extra protein and fiber, along with a significant amount of fat which helps in building muscles. Think of it like peanut butter.

2.Protein smoothie.

Muscle-building protein shake
  • 20g dark chocolate (85% cocoa)
  • 100ml coconut milk.
  • 25g scoop whey protein isolate.
  • Pinch of cinnamon.
  • 1 banana.
  • 50g porridge oats, soaked in 100ml of water for five to ten minutes.

Some great sources of protein for smoothies include yogurt, nuts and nut butters, silken tofu, and milk or soy milk. This will help build muscle—which is a good thing, whether you aspire to be a bodybuilder or are just looking to tone up. Opt for energy-boosting add-ins like fruit, oats, and (again) yogurt.

3.Apple and handful cashews.

Like all nuts, cashews provide an excellent source of protein. Protein is one of three macronutrients your body uses for energy, and it is particularly important for rebuilding muscle tissue and creating new cellular compounds.

4.Homemade energy balls.

Heartburn is a burning sensation in your chest that often occurs with a bitter taste in your throat or mouth. The symptoms of heartburn may get worse after you eat a large meal or when you’re lying down.

Image result for heartburn

During pregnancy, the hormone progesterone causes the valve to relax, which can increase the frequency of heartburn.Heartburn and indigestion are more common during the third trimester because the growing uterus puts pressure on the intestines and the stomach.The following can help you to ease or avoid it completely during the pregnancy:

  • Drink fluids.Chamomile, licorice, slippery elm, and marshmallow may make better herbal remedies to soothe GERD symptoms. Licorice helps increase the mucus coating of the esophageal lining, which helps calm the effects of stomach acid.
  • Enjoy smaller portions.Eating smaller portions is one of the tried-and-true heartburn remedies. Eating less helps you lose weight, taming symptoms even further. If weight isn’t a problem and your portions seem just right, try splitting your three meals into five or six mini-meals.
  • Take care of stress.Stress is a contributor to both heartburn and indigestion.Coping with it and getting rid of stressful situations,will help prevent heartburn.
  • Avoid bending or laying after eating.Have your last meal of the day at least three hours before you head to bed. Lying down too soon after eating can trigger acid to rise up from the stomach—ouch.
  • Limit fried,spicy and gassy food.Avoid foods or drinks that relax the lower esophageal sphincter such as chocolate, peppermint, caffeine-containing beverages, and fatty or fried foods.Also, foods that may damage the esophagus such as spicy foods, citrus fruits and juices, tomatoes and tomato sauces, or any food that causes symptoms.

NB:Saliva helps move food down through the esophagus and can ease the symptoms of heartburn. To increase salivation, try chewing gum after a meal or an attack of heartburn. Avoid mint-flavored gums, however, since these may relax the valve at the top of the stomach.

In this context i refer to the physical activity in which people touch each other’s bodies, kiss each other, etc. physical activity that is related to and often includes sexual intercourse

Just like the psychological benefits, sex has numerous physical benefits. From a stronger immune system, enhanced physical fitness to better digestion and an improved sense of smell. Sex might just be the answer to all your problems. Sex in a happy marriage is important, and just as important is open communication.

Image result for sex meaning

There is some question among sex therapists about what the true average is for couples in committed relationships. The answers can range from once a week to once a month!

Regular sex triggers the sex drive, enhances romance and attachment, along with confidence and general wellness as a result of produced hormones; testosterone, dopamine, and oxytocin which are achieved with regular sexual activity.

When both partners feel safe and connected, it creates a positive cycle that bonds the couple together in increasing levels of intimacy. Intimacy Is Good for Self-Confidence. Self-confidence is important for any human being, regardless of age or relationship status.

As people mature physically and emotionally, they become increasingly curious about their sexuality and their own bodies. … It’s normal to feel a sexual attraction and even to find yourself daydreaming, often about no one in particular.

Normal” is whatever feels fulfilling for you and your partner, and communication plays a key role in making sure both parties feel fulfilled.

When both partners feel safe and connected, it creates a positive cycle that bonds the couple together in increasing levels of intimacy. Intimacy Is Good for Self-Confidence. Self-confidence is important for any human being, regardless of age or relationship status.

Many factors can contribute to men’s decreased interest in sex. In my own research, the three most commonly endorsed issues that men described as decreasing their desire was sexual rejection, lack of emotional connection with their partners, and physical ailments or health issues.

The benefits of sex range from slashing stress levels to lowering your risk of cancer and heart attacks. Sex facilitates bonding and feelings of intimacy with your partner. This kind of connectedness does more than make you feel warm and fuzzy, it actually reduces anxiety and boosts your overall health.

If you can’t be intimate with your partner, whether physically or emotionally- or both, you cannot expect to having a lasting relationship with your partner. The reason for this is quite simple. … Your relationship cannot survive without intimacy, because intimacy is the foundation of any relationship.

A sexless marriage is a marital union in which little or no sexual activity occurs between the two spouses. … It may also be known as a mariage blanc, i.e. blank and null.
Married people under 30 have sex about 111 times a year. And it’s estimated that about 15 percent of married couples have not had sex with their spouse in the last six months to one year.
A sexless marriage isn’t doomed to fail, but it is made a great deal more difficult in most circumstances. In order for a marriage to survive when there is no sex or intimacy both partners need to be of the same mind when it comes to that aspect of their relationship.
Both males and females can boost their libido using the following methods:
  1. Manage anxiety.
  2. Improve relationship quality.
  3. Focus on foreplay.
  4. Get good-quality sleep.
  5. Eat a nutritious diet.
  6. Try herbal remedies.
  7. Get regular exercise.
  8. Maintain a healthful weight.
