[Yakson House] Sneaky sodium traps sabotaging your looks

Salt is so in right now as in, in everything you eat. As any healthcare professional will 

tell you, our sodium intake is out of control. 

Salty food is not doing your looks any favors. 

Besides contributing to heart disease, high blood pressure and obesity, to name a 

few, OD-ing on salt dehydrates skin, which means more wrinkles, puffy eyes and dark 

circles. It also can make you bloated, which we don't have to tell you

Cutting back on your salt intake isn't as easy as putting down the salt shaker, or 

avoiding the obvious culprits, like Pretzels and chips. Salt is sneakier than you'd think, 

and it's hiding in many of the foods you'd least expect. 

I will tell you some food that have been tricked you all this time. 

You will find this very surprising.

1. California Roll  

With all those omega-3s, sushi falls under the healthy column.... if you stick to sashimi.

One ounce of imitation crab, the bread and butter of popular California rolls, packs a 

whopping 238 milligrams. Factor in the salted seaweed wrap and the fact that 1 

tablespoon of soy sauce clocks in at 1,000 milligrams of sodium and you're close to 

going over your daily sodium intake before you even eat an entire roll. 

2. Bagels

Bagels might be on your "do not eat" list because of the refined carbs, but they are 

sodium villains as well. 

3. Cottage cheese

Just when you thought cottage cheese was on your side this whole time. Dieters in
search of muscle building protein are better off with Greek Yogurt, which has less 

than 100 milligrams of salt for the same serving size, and almost double the protein. 

4. Marinara Sauce

Pasta gets all the blame for its high carb content, but your sauce is the one 

sabotaging your diet by piling on the sodium. Try pureeing your own tomatoes and 

adding fresh herbs and spices next time you whip up spaghetti. 

5. Veggie Burgers

Gardenburger's Black Bean Chipotle Veggie Burger, Amy's All American Veggie Burger 

and Boca's All American Flame Grilled Burger each has roughly 400 milligrams of 

sodium per patty. And you always wondered how something that isn't meat could be 

so tasty... All you have to do is check the sodium content for your answer.

[Yakson House] fight your spring depression

Spring's arrival puts most people in a pleasant mood, but there are some who 

experience the opposite feeling. 

For those of you who experience feeling down and depressed, the longer days and 

warmer weather in the spring can actually send their bodies and emotions into a 


In general, as the seasons change, so do our behavior, energy levels, desire to 

socialize and sometimes sleeping patterns. 

Spring based depression can be particularly troublesome because while most people 

are enjoying the increased amount of sunlight and higher temperatures, those 

suffering from it are feeling overwhelmed.

You might feel anxious and sad, trouble sleeping at night, lose interest in normal 

activities and even lose interest in normal activities and even lose appetite. 

Healthy diet and regular exercise are known to help you with depression. 

Let me tell you what kind of food are really helpful to fight depression. 

1. soy products, fish, meat

Protein contains a good source of the mood enhancing trpytophan, an essential 

amino acid which is converted into serotonin, which is a brain chemical. Protein foods 

include meat, fish, beans, lentils, eggs and cheese. 

2. Sunlight

Simply step outside on sunny days and walk around for an half and hour. 

A team of researchers noted that the only factor that affected participants' moods 

was the amount of sunlight they were exposed to on any given day. 

More sunlight meant better moods; less sunlight lead to symptoms of depression. 

The study suggests that low levels of serotonin directly correlate with seasonal 

effective disorder, which most often occurs during winter months. 

3. Walnuts, Kale, Spinach

Omega-3 fatty acids relieve inflammation and facilitate communication between nerve 

cells in the brain. Individuals who are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids, or who lack 

the proper balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, are more susceptible to 

mood instability. Nuts such as walnuts, flaxseeds and pecans and leafy greens such as 

spinach, kale and collard greens are good source of Omega 3 and 6.

4. Vitamin D

Vitamin D deficiency and depression are found to be linked together. 

Filling up the vitamin D tank may help relieve some of the symptoms. 

Fish such as Cod, tuna, herring, salmon and Mackerel and dairy such as eggs, 

Margarine and fortified butters, are all good sources of vitamin D.

[Yakson House] Water soluble vitamin supplements

Do you take vitamin supplements daily?

Vitamins are necessary 

Vitamins are organic compounds which are needed in small quantities to sustain life. 

We get vitamins from food, because the human body either does not produce 

enough of them, or none at all.  

On the market today, So many different forms of vitamin supplements came out. 

Water- soluble, chew-able, powder vitamins and etc...

Among those different kinds of vitamin supplements, 

I am going to talk about water soluble vitamin tablets. 

These are hot on the market in Korea right now. 

These tablets dissolve quickly in water and is now as simple as drinking your water.

Especially, they come in a variety of flavors to suit your taste buds. 

However, Just because they taste great, doesn't mean you can overdose the vitamins.

I am going to list few cautions when you drink this water soluble vitamin tablets. 

1. Check out the ingredients on the label. 

Some products contain more sugar, sodium and preservatives than other products.

Make sure to check what are they made of. 

Sodium in these soluble vitamin tablets has been an issue among scientists.

This little tablet contains the necessary sodium you need per one day.

2. Read the method of intake and how often they should be taken. 

You might think the more vitamin the better for your health.

but this is not true. Always too much is not good for you.

Therefore, Knowing right dose amount of vitamin you need is important. 

Usually one tablet per day is enough for all of us. 

Vitamin is necessary for our body to function properly. 

It's nothing bad about you getting little extra help from supplements. 

However, We all need to keep it mind that these are just supplements so I advise not 

to rely on completely. 

The most important thing is your eating habits. 

We get most of vitamin and mineral from what we eat. 

Don't forget to consume Fresh vegetables, and fruits everyday.

[Yakson House] Food that will cure your insomnia/

Sleep is an essential part of life. 

some of you have hard time to fall alseep at night?

This condition can be caused by many factors. 

Stress, medical condition, too much caffeine and etc...

It is painful when you can't sleep at night. 

Next morning, You might get headache, you feel exhausted and can't focus on your 

study or work. 

I am going to list some food that will help you sleep better.

1. Banana

Bananas contain tryptophan, an amino acid that's valuable in your effort to get to 

sleep. Tryptophan converts to serotonin, a sleep promoting neurotransmitter, and is 

the cause of the post thanksgiving "turkey fog" you might experience. The fruit is also 

a source of melatonin, which is often known as the "sleep hormone." The dose of 

melatonin causes you to feel drowsy, and as a result, help you fall asleep. 

2. Garlic

No scientific studies about garlic being sleep inducer has been published. 

Some scientists say to avoid garlic because garlic contains compounds that causes 

heart burn and acid reflux. but some people say garlic actually helps to induce sleep.


3. Romaine Lettuce

The white fluid that you see when you break or cut lettuce leaves is called 


This has relaxing and sleep inducing properties similar to opium but without the 

strong side effects. Simply eat a few leaves or drink some lettuce juice. 

4. Kiwi

The fuzzy tropical fruit might be the ultimate sleepy time snack. 

A recent study by Taiwanese scientists found that women with sleeping problems 

who consumed two kiwi fruit one hour before bedtime fell asleep 45 minutes faster, 

and had better sleep duration and quality than those who went without the fruit.

5. Milk

A cup of warm milk or a milk based drink is traditionally used for sleep induction. 

It is not just an old wives' tale. Dairy products are rich in the amino acid trptophan, 

which helps in the production of the sleep inducing brain chemicals, serotonin and 


6. Lotus root

Lotus root is considered to have many curative powers. According to modern day 

science, the plant is rich in iron that fortifies the blood and has plenty of vitamin C, 

anti oxidants, polysaccharides, and polyphenois that are believed to be effective 

fighting cancer. 

For people who are emotionally unstable, anxious, nervous, or unable to sleep, raw 

lotus root juice has been known to help, because it eases the nerves. 

7. Walnut

Walnuts are a good source of tryptophan, a sleep enhancing amino acid that helps 

make serotonin and melatonin, the body clock hormone that sets your sleep wake 

cycles. Additionally, University of Texas researchers found that walnuts contain their 

own source of melatonin, which may help you fall asleep faster. 

8. Onion

The onion are one of the most popular vegetables, consumed worldwide. Not only 

does it taste good when added to food, onion has many health benefits. 

The chinese used onions in food therapy because onions have the ability to relax 

muscles, and may consequently help to relieve an underlying cause of insomnia.

[Yakson House] Prevent wrinkles/antiaging


Your skin, a living organ, will start to show signs of aging as early as your 20s; but 

with some extra care, you can slow the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

A good skin care regimen should focus on hydration, as aging facial skin can lose the 

ability to retain moisture, which is essential for fighting creases. Consistent topical 

care and strengthening the skin on a cellular level are two additional ways to avoid 

unwanted wrinkles. Start your war on wrinkles as early as possible to get the best 

looking skin.  


I know you are thinking, well of course! Everyone knows that a good skin care routine 

can help fight the signs of aging. All those commercials and skin care products exist 

for a reason, right? But, I just wanted to reiterate that even if you don't use any 

actual anti aging products, a no frills routine with a simple cleanser and moisturizer 

will be better than doing nothing at all. 

You don't need the latest breakthrough skin care product to prevent aging, as long 

as you take good basic care of your skin. 


People say men tend to age slower (or look younger, however you want to think  

of it) because they shave, frequently exfoliating their face. For both women andmen, 

exfoliating is definitely an easy way to keep your skin fresh. Pretty much every beauty 

magazine will recommend exfoliating your skin at least once a week.  


Long-term Botox use actually helps minimize the appearance deep set wrinkles. Fat 

grafting can plump up skin and distribute nutrients to previously depleted regions of 

your face. Facials like microdermabrasion and chemical peels help prevent and repair 

the appeareance of aging by rapidly exfoliating surface layers of the skin and 

minimizing fine wrinkles. 


Antioxidants like Vitamin C, Q10, alpha lipoic acid, and green/white tea prevent free 

radicals from damaging your skin. Free radicals are partially responsible for wrinkles, 

non-gravity defying eye bags, etc. Luckily, free radical fighting antioxidants come in 

many forms, both external and internal. 


Sunscreen is the number one preventative topical against aging. It prevents more 

than fixes, but if you think about it, it's much easier to prevent the signs than it is to 

reverse wrinkles, hyper pigmentation, or anything else that has already set in. 

Sunscreen protects you from the sun's harmful UV rays and prevents even more 

damage. However, sunscreen is not a magic potion that works as soon as you start 

using it. Your skin won't age less a week or even a month after consistent and proper 

sunscreen application. You may see less sun spots, but ultimate sunscreen benefits 

are cumulative and will show through in the long run.
