[Health Science] These nourishing health products that Chinese people love are not good for health?

If you love health preservation, you are no stranger to instant bird’s nest, donkey-hide gelatin paste… and other products known as health preservation. Modern people pay more and more attention to health, health care products are booming, and various health products are also popular. However, although some products have the reputation of bird’s nest and donkey-hide glue, they may not be healthy, and they have nothing to do with bird’s nest and donkey-hide glue! Next, Mr. Licorice, take you to uncover the true face of these health foods. Instant bird’s nest = bird’s nest flavored syrup bird’s nest is the highest-selling type of nourishing and health-care products, especially in recent years, the rise of instant bird’s nest, the feature of opening the lid makes the bird’s nest into the homes of ordinary people. But what you don’t know is that the production and operation threshold of instant bird’s nest is low. As a consumer, you must avoid these pits. Otherwise, you may not buy bird’s nest, but “sugar water” or “poisonous nest”. 1. The standard of instant bird’s nest is different. There are uniform and strict national standards for bird’s nest. Consumers can check the source code on each bird’s nest, which can generally guarantee safety. The instant bird’s nest adopts the food standard, according to the strict degree of inspection, medicine &gt. health products &gt. food. Licorice Jun takes a certain instant bird’s nest with the highest sales volume of a treasure as an example. The product category is convenience food-staple food. Only QS/SC certified instant bird’s nest materials are difficult to guarantee. It may be a problem of smuggling bird’s nest, or cheap bird’s nest, or it may contain various additives. The safety standards of ready-to-eat bird’s nest have been lowered, which greatly increases the risk for consumers. 2. The water in instant bird’s nest is very deep. Let’s take a well-known instant bird’s nest product as an example-the main ingredients are water and rock sugar; one bottle per day is recommended, but the shelf life is only 15 days, which means that if no one is sharing, 15 bottles are not edible It does not support 7-day refunds without reason, and the after-sales is worrying; compared with similar products, high prices do not mean good quality. Negative textbook (30-day package for 4390) Positive textbook (7-day package for 699) 3. Bird’s nest cannot be stewed with rock sugar. At present, many instant bird’s nests are stewed with rock sugar. Apart from being delicious, this has no advantages. Moreover, according to the “Compendium Supplements”, “If you fry with rock sugar, you will be happy. How can it help the lungs to clear down?”, decocting with rock sugar will lose the greatest effect of helping the lungs. At the same time, for the effect of bird’s nest, the publicity of the business is often greater than the actual. There are not many descriptions of bird’s nest in ancient medical works. The “Ben Cao Fen Jing” of the Qing Dynasty said “nourishing lung yin and appetizing Qi”, and there was no such thing as “beauty and beauty, nourishing holy product, anti-cancer and anti-cancer” in the promotion of health products. effect. At the same time, bird’s nest is cold, theoretically not suitable for pregnant women and the elderly. “Materia Medica” mentions the harmful effects of bird’s nest “the seafood is so cold, it is not suitable to use cold cough, and it may increase the disease if you eat it.” Obesity does not have much benefit. For more information about bird’s nest, please refer to Baidu Encyclopedia’s [Bird’s Nest (Traditional Chinese Medicine) entry, which is reviewed by the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine and is safe and credible. Ejiao Cake = Black Sesame Sugar Ejiao related products have enduring sales and popularity. In the circle of friends, there are indispensable sellers who have sold handmade donkey-hide gelatin cakes. Licorice Jun has eaten a lot of donkey-hide gelatin cakes. A black gelatin cake with a maltose scent is exuding a kidney-tonifying black luster. It has become the same name as bird’s nest Jiapin. Let’s take the e-jiao cake of a well-known brand with the largest sales volume as an example. The main ingredient is black sesame. The content of e-jiao is in the 5th place in the ingredient list (according to national standards, various ingredients should be added when manufacturing or processing food In descending order of quantity), the content of rock sugar is greater than that of donkey-hide gelatin, and the true value can be imagined. If you look at the 15-jin sesame cake, you will find that the two are very similar whether it is the physical product or the ingredient list. What’s more, as long as you add a little donkey-hide gelatin to the ingredients, the black sesame cake can be transformed into a 500 yuan per catty donkey-hide gelatin cake. Moreover, there are more types of sugar added to the donkey-hide gelatin cake, and the taste is sweeter and less healthy. Well-known brand of donkey-hide gelatin Even so, we don’t recommend that you buy the Sanwu products sold by Moments. Many Ejiao cakes sold by exposed black heart sellers not only do not contain Ejiao, but also have excessive lead content. Liquorice Jun casually found some homemade products in Moments. Ejiao cake, I was surprised to find that these copywritings and pictures are almost identical. What’s more alarming is that they used a certain brand of Ejiao, which is known as Guangyao Ejiao, which was exposed to quality problems. Of course, in the picture. This Ejiao cake does not contain Ejiao by visual inspection.

Is instant whitening possible? Lie through the counter to whiten quickly!

Many people are pursuing whitening, but there are many rumors and words about whitening on the market! Many people should have similar experience. When walking near the cosmetics counter, they will be pulled to apply a bunch of products on their hands, and then tell you how good this product is. The most common of these words is the “instant whitening” to be cracked today. As long as the principle is understood, any marketing method will not break through. How does the skin look white? Basically, if the surface of the skin is smooth, with high reflectivity and a certain degree of light transmission, there is no pigment component in the epidermis and dermis, plus a little reflection of microvessels underneath, you will see white and red skin. Like the surface of the frozen lake, there is not much scattering. The light will easily pass through, refracted to the water surface under the ice, and then reflect the blue and translucent color. So to make the skin look white, basically our goal is to make the horny skin full of water and become smooth, let the skin surface appear shiny, remove the dull old keratin and make the horny skin smooth, use white powder to directly whiten Or cover the flaws on the face to create the desired visual effect. Let’s imagine a situation with us in the four moments of cracking counters: we will take your hand when you go shopping, and paint your family’s products on the back of your hand. The result will become bright and white! What is going on? Below we prepare four different types of products, and use dermoscopy to explain what is going on! Contestant 1: Instant whitening with horny water Ad words: “We use original natural extraction ingredients to create a fine-textured skin for you, and you will wake up and brighten up the next morning ~” Instant whitening product 1 This is actually a moisturizing product, He makes the horny cells full of water, and when the keratin cells are full of water, the epidermal space will narrow, so it looks smoother and looks white. Contestant 2: The skin appears shiny and instantly whitens. Advertisement: “I tell you, this will definitely improve the dullness and enhance the translucent gloss of your skin. Come and wipe it! Is it white and bright immediately?” Instant Whitening Product II In fact, this is a skin care product containing oil, which makes the skin appear shiny (does n’t everyone think Dongpo meat looks shiny too?) Player 3: Instant exfoliation whitening Advertisement: “The face is dull and waxy yellow Do n’t be afraid, our repair cream can make your skin radiant and return to moisture, and it will be effective immediately after wiping. ”Instant Whitening Product 3 Actually this is a product that physically removes the old keratin on the skin surface. The surface is less smooth, and the darker old horny skin is removed, it will look relatively white, but remind everyone that the horny skin is not chaotic, horny skin care is true! Player 4: White powder instant whitening advertising words: “Oh! You really will pick this one. Our newly developed Aurora Translucent Factor can definitely fade the spots quickly. You don’t have to go home and try it. Now it works! Miracle! Miracle! “Instant Whitening Product No. 4 is actually a product that contains white powder. You can see that the white powder stays directly on the skin after application, similar to the function of plain cream, so it has a direct whitening effect. Is n’t it simple! But! In this whitening method, as long as the skin dries, the gloss fades, and the powder is washed off, the skin returns to its original appearance, just like Cinderella’s magic is automatically lifted after midnight. If you want to pursue a fundamental whitening, you must understand that this is the melanin in the epidermis and dermis. Melting melanin usually refers to inhibiting melanin production or accelerating melanin metabolism. The entire “process” of melanin takes about 28 days from manufacturing to delivery to keratin, so it will take at least a month to assess whether it is effective. If the elder sister tells you that her products can metabolize melanin immediately, or Is it to restrain him from spawning? The purpose of melanin production and metabolism is not to destroy everyone’s illusion of “quick whitening”! It is to teach you to choose products according to your needs, so that you will not spend a lot of money but have the wrong expectation and be confused by words. If you want to know more about whitening, and listen to decomposition next time!
