A dedicated photographer and one who can more often than not be found enjoying doing a shoot, MohsinKhawar continues to set himself apart. If his new Color Pop shoot is any indicator of the quality of work one can expect from MKP, it is clear to see that Mohsin can go far in the world of fashion photography. His latest shoot, Color Pop, is exactly that! It is full of light and colors while ensuring that no one color contrasts with, or overshadows another. This fun, sophisticated shoot was done at the MKP studio with the idea of bringing the summer colors to light. The man behind the camera, MohsinKhawar, tells us a little bit about the vision behind this shoot: “The theme was to hit the summery colors. We made sure that our model, Hina, was styled in a very chic manner using one of the best cosmetics brand in the world and one of the finest wigs. Our makeup artist Fatima Nasir did a wonderful job on this and we are sure the colors will simply make you feel fresh and all jazzed up.�

how to test amino acids

how to test amino acids?

A

mino acids are foundational molecules that play a very key role in human and animal physiology. When one is deficient in a certain amino acid due to dietary restriction or metabolic problems, it can lead to very serious health issues. Getting the proper amino acid testing can reveal the underlying cause for various health problems and provide natural treatment solutions to get well.

Amino acids are given a configuration of “L” or “D” based on which side the amino group is attached too. In natural protein, all amino acid residues are in the L configuration. The D configuration may be formed synthetically or by tissue catabolism and bacterial metabolism. The D form is unable to produce peptides and proteins and may even inhibit enzymes. An amino acid analysis employs state-of-the-art high-performance liquid chromatography that performs the most comprehensive and sensitive assay available for urine. This test analyzes 40 different amino acids and looks at key biomarkers for vitamin, mineral and inflammatory levels.

The analytes are measured on a report in functional categories for amino acids to assess for nutritional cofactors and disorders related to possible imbalances. Some of the major things the test analyzes include: • Dietary protein adequacy • Gastrointestinal dysfunction • Kidney Function • Functional adequacy of vitamins and minerals • Inflammation • Detoxification impairment • Cardiovascular disease • Neurological dysfunction • Ammonia toxicity • Inborn errors of metabolism

S

hedding pounds largely comes down to the two-pronged factors of diet and exercise. Not modifying the first one enough, and not getting enough of the second one, ends up giving the individual a recipe for being overweight. Conditions related to obesity include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Reduce the amount of red meat in your diet. If you don’t want to eliminate red meat altogether, choose cuts of meat with less fat content. Limit your intake of salt and starches.

How to lose weight?

at lunch, opt for the baked potato chips that are less greasy and contain less fat than the deep-fried chips. You might find you’re really not sacrificing that much in terms of taste. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, egg whites, skinless poultry, fish and nonfat dairy products will certainly aid in the mission of losing weight. Drink

more water and less sugary drinks. If you have to have a soda, a diet soda is a better option, but seltzer is an even better choice than that. In terms of exercise, it’s important—if not always easy—to make sure you get at least some physical activity each and every day. Cardio and strength training burn lots of calories.

W

hen it comes to treating depression, many things come to mind, from antidepressant medications to natural therapies like yoga and herbal remedies like St. John’s wort. In particular, there is one very crucial element which cannot be ignored. As humans are social animals, the very important role that relationships play cannot be overlooked or underestimated. Important aspects of fighting depression include the right lifestyle habits, positive thinking patterns and the use of natural remedies. Being able to flag out the root causes of one’s depression would also be useful. Another vital element is the people around a depressed person. It is found that one’s risk of major depression disorder was affected by the quality of his or her relationships with a spouse, family and friends, and this was regardless of the frequency of their social interactions. -Trusting and loving relationships -Hang out with positive people -Group therapy -Help others
