Nmami Agarwal often shares different health-related tips through videos on Instagram. She discusses the connection between the glycemic index of food and acne. Speaking about it, she says there are certain food items that increase blood sugar levels more quickly than others. She states when blood sugar rises, it causes blood to release insulin-like growth factor-1 hormone. Now, if this is released in abundance, it causes oil glands to produce more sebum, further increasing the risk of developing acne and inflammation. She also suggests that food items with low GI, can improve and prevent acne. While food items like white rice, white bread, pasta, and sugar have a high GI, whole grains, unprocessed fruits and vegetables, and legumes are low GI foods.
As per Nmami Agarwal, there are some common signs that may be an indication that your body is facing some deficiency. She says that brittle nails and thinning of hair show a deficiency of Vitamin B7. Also known as biotin, vitamin B7 helps in the conversion of food to energy. Although it’s rare, Vitamin B7 deficiency isn’t non-existent. This condition may also exhibit various other symptoms including fatigue, perpetual tiredness, muscle pain and a tingling sensation in the hands and feet. So, to obtain vitamin B7, you can have eggs, fish, meat, nuts, seeds, dairy products, sweet potato, cauliflower, and yeast.
