    Start Eating This If You Have Hair Loss, Thin Brittle Nails, Or Insomnia

    As all women know, hair, nails and sleep are hugely important to your overall appearance and well-being. As well as this, a great nights sleep makes you feel on top of the world, whilst a strong set of nails and a full head of hair makes you feel confident and ready to take on anything life can throw at you.

    If one of these three elements has been neglected it is a recipe for disaster.

    Of course we’re not always in control, some suffer from insomnia or have a predisposition to brittle nails or hair loss. But, things can be done to prevent all of the above and this begins with your diet.

    The following 3 vitamins can all help you on the road to recovery. Please remember to consult a doctor before dramatically changing your diet.

    1. Zinc

    Zinc is a vital mineral for your body and it helps to keep it healthy. It contributes to nail and hair growth as your body develops. A diet with low levels of Zinc content will lead to brittle, dry nails. Obviously eating foods with a high Zinc content will help to improve these symptoms. But what are these foods….

    People will normally tell you that seafood is the only option, but the following foods all have a good zinc count and not all of these are your typical ‘healthy’ foods.

    • Beef: often overlooked but has a very high Zinc content
    • Flax Seeds: quite unusual but also linked with regulation of hormones so an all round super food.
    • Pumpkin Seeds: obviously only really consumed on halloween.
    • Oysters: for the more promiscuous.
    • Shrimp: fairly difficult to get hold of but taste delicious.
    • Kidney beans: you can easily slip these into a chilli con carne.
    • Watermelon seeds: you can barely taste them, so it is perfect.
    • Spinach: not only used for growing muscle

    Also, Zinc has been known to help you sleep.

    Ant McPartlin bursts into tears on Britains Got Talent

    Ant McPartlin will soon be seen to break down in tears from pre-recorded scenes for the very first episode of this new set of Britain’s Got Talent on Saturday night.

    It has been announced that the embattled 42-year-old, who is now in rehabilitation, will be absent from the live show. His sidekick and expert partner Declan Donnelly will take the stage for the initial audition process of this show.

    News of the scenes comes after Britain’s Got More Talent host Stephen Mulhern talked to Closer magazine concerning the raucous post-show festivities following BGT. A sensitive subject due to Ant’s current treatment for beverage and drug addiction.

    Earlier in the week, it was revealed that Dec will host the live shows independently, as Ant steps down from his TV responsibilities following his admission to rehabilitation.

    A spokesman for ITV said: ‘Declan Donnelly will host Britain’s Got Talent live shows on his own while Ant McPartlin “steps down from his TV responsibilities for now”.’ The famous show will go for the 12th season on Saturday with Ant to be seen on-screen at the audition stages, but that is his sole participation.

    Dec will also be hosting the live show solo from the Hammersmith Apollo rather than a TV studio, for the first time. It has been shown in a teaser he will breakdown in tears because he watches one of the auditions – definitely causing high emotion. He then turns to the camera and said: ‘I can not prevent the tears from falling’.

    Elsewhere, Stephen, who stepped up for the finale of Saturday Night Takeaway at Dec’s absence, recently revealed the way the post-show events could have raucous.

    He revealed: ‘It’s brilliant, because after filming we all go back to the resort, give it five or 10 minutes – then we will be in the bar. There is no way you can come from auditions afternoon and go: “Right everyone, I am off to bed!”‘

    Ant stepped down from his introducing commitments when he was charged with drink-driving earlier this month following a 3 car crash. The television personality was twice the legal limit when he was arrested, according to police. The legal limit is 35mg.

    The TV presenter, who has been component of duo Ant and Dec for almost 30 years, was expected to appear at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday charged with the offence. Ant and Dec did not feature in recently released promo images for the new series of BGT, set to air this Saturday, with judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden all pictured.

    Sir Ken Dodd dies aged 90

    The comedy legend died peacefully late on Sunday in the Knotty Ash home where he was born, spent his entire life – and married his partner of 40 years on Friday.

    Anne Jones – Lady Anne – was by his side when he passed away at their house in Thomas Lane.

    Ken, who celebrated his 90th birthday in November, had recently spent more than six weeks in the Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital battling a severe chest infection. He was allowed home nearly two weeks ago.

    Doddy’s agent, Robert Holmes, broke the sad news of the national treasure’s death in a phone call to the Liverpool ECHO at 1.20am, shortly after receiving a call from a distraught Lady Anne.

    He said: “They may as well turn out the lights – the last of the music hall greats has gone.

    “It is so sad, but what is so lovely is that Ken was able to marry his beloved Anne in a private ceremony at home on Friday. And, being a Knight of the Realm, there will actually be a marriage announcement in The Times on Tuesday.

    “They were together for 40 years and this is the love story to end all love stories.

    RIP Doddy.

    10 foods that can actually help weight loss

    We always seem to talk about  foods that are closely linked to weight gain. Far less frequently do we discuss the foods that will help to keep us full and our calorie intake controlled.

Soluble fibre is the type of fibre known to help reduce blood cholesterol levels, keep our arteries healthy and support optimal metabolic function long term. Click ‘Next’ to see the rest

    Warning signs of a stroke. Please Read

    I urge you all to read and share this, by passing on this simple information you could help to save a life. They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along?

    In the summer, during a BBQ, a woman called Jane, lost her balance, stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine and had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, she went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Jane’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00 PM she passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don’t die, in many cases, getting help quickly and acting fast can lead to a full recovery.

    It only takes a minute to read this. A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.
