7 things that happen in Your Body, you never knew were for an actual Reason

Our bodies are really an amazing creation, they are made up of so many intricate systems that if we actually stop and think about it, we would be mind blown. There are also a few things that happen to our bodies involuntarily and all of a sudden, of which we have no clue as to when or why they happen. 

Here you will find out exactly why your body does the following things…

1. Goosebumps

Ever get goose bumps if a cool breeze suddenly hits you or while reading a scary book? This action is called a pilomotor reflex. Its origin is from our hairier ancestors, who had no problem with the fact that they had long luscious hair all over their bodies and it was in fact considered asset. It’s a reaction your body makes by contracting the muscles around the hair to reduce heat leaving your body thereby keeping you warm. This worked well for our predecessors because they had hair to preserve the heat, but not so much for us.

2. Sneezing

Aaachooo!! Human beings sneeze as a way to remove the toxins, bacteria, dust, pollen and allergens in your nasal passage so that they remain clear enough that you can breathe in fresh clean air. So next time you try to stop that sneeze, don’t!!

3. Stretching

Isn’t it the greatest feeling in the world is when you get a nice long crackled stretch when you wake up in the morning? So why does it bring us so much satisfaction and pleasure? 

While your body is sleeping or in a state of rest or sitting in a long position for hours, the joints and muscles get stiff and blood circulation drops, so when you stretch, the blood circulation fastens and actions become quicker and more energized. Stretching also releases tension and relaxes the body allowing you to start your day fresh!

4. Wrinkling of Skin on finger and toe tips

Do you ever wonder why your fingers are all creased up while taking a shower? The body recognizes the moisture in the air and cause wrinkles to appear so that you can grip objects more easily and the wetness doesn’t let your hands and feet get slippery.

5. Sleep starts

Sleep starts scientifically known as hypnagogic jerks are the jolts you get when you are halfway between wakefulness and sleep. There are many theories as to why they occur, the most common one being that the nerves misfire while going through the natural process from wakefulness to sleep. Don’t worry if they happen to you, they’re normal and completely natural.

6. Hiccups

Ever get hiccups after drinking sodas or eating too quickly or too much? This involuntary reaction occurs as a signal from our brain that there are disturbances from the neural pathways from our brain to our various muscles. Some common ways to get rid of hiccups are breathing into a paper bag or holding your breath.

7. Yawning

There are various reasons and theories why you open your wide in the morning letting a large gulp of air in and out of your lungs. Some theories are that when you are bored or sleepy you breathe in less oxygen and so the yawn lets in a large amount of oxygen at a time, stimulating your brain. If you yawn when you’re tired your brain activity is slowing causing the temperature to drop and yawning cools it down. So yawns are actually important for you, who knew?

I have also heard that scaring someone is a great way to rid them of their hiccups. When I worked at an elementary school, I tried it with one of my students and the other kids thought it was so funny. I just said boo, but it startled the little girl and her hiccups went away.

These are fascinating! I am a little on the fence about the wet wrinkled skin theory though. I don't know that the reason is so that you can grip things with wet hands. But it is cool to know that it does serve a double purpose!

Oh this is so interesting. I've wondered why some of these happen before. I did know the one about yawning, the others are neat.

Trying To Find The Best Diet Pill? Trying to find the best diet pill may seem like an impossible task, especially with the multitude of diet pills available for purchase. Many people purchase a diet pill only to find out that the pill makes them feel jittery, nervous, or often has no effect at all. Diet pills frequently contain the same or similar combination of ingredients and rarely contain anything new, innovative, or undiscovered to the supplement / weight loss industry. So, how can you find the best diet pill when most diet pills are made with similar ingredients? One of the most common problems associated with taking diet pills is that the person taking the diet pill is uneducated about the dosage, effects, and promises offered as they relate to each diet pill. The research at website finds that there are three factors that should be taken into consideration when deciding to take a diet pill. Dosage: It is important to take the pill exactly as recommended on the product label. Some people choose to increase the dosage thinking that the product will work faster or better. This is not the case, and many people become sick in response to the large dose. Reviewers at website often suggest that the recommended dosage be cut in half to give the body time to adjust to the stimulant in the diet pill. After the body has adjusted, it is fine to begin taking the regular dosage as recommended on the product label. Effects: The effects listed on the product label are there because these are the effects that the product has had on 'some' of the test group. Some of the diet pill testers may be fine taking the product, while others may have adverse effects. The diet pill companies print this information to educate the buyer as well as to protect themselves from lawsuits. The consumer needs to read the label and educate themselves before taking the product. Many people who are sensitive to caffeine are surprised when the diet pill makes them feel nervous or nauseous, but this information is likely printed on the product, so with a little research these affects can be avoided. Promises: If you read the fine print on product claims for diet pills and other weight loss supplements, you will see 'results not typical' printed very small somewhere where you are not expected to look. The diet pills advertised on television are responsible for some of the most outlandish claims. The results claimed in these advertisements are often unattainable within the given amount of time outlined in the ad. Don't expect to see results in two weeks like a lot of ads claim. Wouldn't it be great if you could read reviews for diet pills from actual users of each diet pill? Diet Pill Reviews website has taken the trouble out of searching for the best diet pill. You can read reviews of over 150 of the most popular diet pills available. Copyright 2006, Diet Pill Reviews viagra pas cher
