We think that with the onset of spring and the good weather, we will feel more cheerful and cheerful. The days are getting longer, the sun is shining, the summer is so close … But no – in fact, we just wake up in the morning and all day we feel unsteady and exhausted. We lack a concentration of work, the work tasks seem to us more and more outrageous, and good mood seems like a mirage. What is wrong?
As strange as it may seem, spring is a severe period for the body. This is the time when there may be a deficiency of vitamins. Sharp weather changes require rapid adaptation but exhaust the body. The situation is aggravated by the dramatic changes in the climate in recent years – even within one day significant fluctuations in temperature and atmospheric pressure are possible. The end of March is, in principle, a period of acute respiratory infections – a sickness at the end of winter, when the body is already exhausted, leads to a longer recovery period and April seems to be inadequate. If there are serious complaints, and if the condition worsens or lasts for weeks, a specialist should be consulted. What can be done in the meantime to fight the spring fatigue, to get more energy and to return your smile through one of the most beautiful annual seasons?
First of all, spring is the time when it is good to keep up with the natural biorhythms and to keep a healthy diet in our daily lives: to go to bed and get on time, to eat regularly (not on a hurry), to have time for a full rest. We need to spend more time on physical activity, sports and outdoor walks. And, of course, fight against the vitamin deficiency. But what else do we need to know to make a spring recharge successfully?
Attention – vitamins with hands or …?
It is important to know that the intake of incompatible vitamins can make sense of the attempts to prevent and correct deficiencies in the body. In addition, many cases of absorption of the vitamins we take depend on the state of our digestive system. For example, with problems with the pancreas, difficulty in absorbing fat-soluble vitamins A, D and E. If there is a decreased secretion of gastric juice, Group B vitamins can also not be absorbed, including vitamin B12, the lack of which can lead to a number of serious diseases .
It is therefore good to periodically check the condition of the digestive tract, even for complaints such as fatigue, insomnia and frequent headaches. Look for a doctor’s recommendation about the right vitamins for you. And do not forget that nature, as always, is the best healer. A well-balanced meal in the spring is your best guarantee that deficient vitamins will quickly be overcome. And together with this you will quickly return the energy and the joy of life!
Health from … the plate
Our daily menu in the spring has to be varied: fresh juices, vegetables, fruits, cereals and products of animal origin. Diversity is important because there is no universal product containing all the vitamins and minerals necessary for the body!
First of all, live foods – fruits and vegetables. There is no “pill” that can completely replace the live food. The interaction between the substances contained in them (vitamins, minerals, trace elements, ballast substances and a whole series of so-called “secondary herbal substances”) maintains our health and prevents us from various injuries. Vegetarians are significantly favored by their eating habits. What’s more – it is found that people who consume many fruits and vegetables are less likely to suffer from malignancies.
Apart from being careful what we put on our plate, let’s not forget to drink water . Dehydration is a reason to feel fatigue, as well as experiencing hunger. Daily we dispense 1.5 – 2 liters of water and this loss of fluid needs to be restored. In principle, the rule applies: one needs about 30 ml of water per kilogram of weight. Ie. if you weigh 60 kg, you should drink at least 1.8 – 2 liters of water a day. If we drink 1 cup of water every hour, we create the best conditions for the body to “load” the dissolved dross and toxins on the water and discard it with it.
Here are some foods that will lead to a rapid flow of energy into daily life: Almonds – rich in magnesium and vitamin B, which help the food become energy for the body. Salmon – rich in Omega 3 to help the brain work. Bananas – in addition to being the ideal snack, they are rich in fiber, vitamin B6 and potassium, which help maintain energy levels. Humus – a Mediterranean dip of some simple ingredients – chickpeas, tango, olive oil and lemon juice rich in energy for energy. The fibers and proteins that charge us stabilize blood sugar, remove hunger and increase energy.
And last but not least – in order to have energy and strength, we need phosphorus. Phosphorus is needed for the production of energy and its recovery in cells, as well as for the full absorption of the food. It participates in almost all biochemical processes, regulates kidney function, heart and alkaline-acid balance. It is found in almost all foods, so when eating well, acute shortages in healthy people are relatively rare. But to make sure that the body is able to digest it at the cell level, we can help with the intake of mineral salts. Shusler salts containing phosphorus in their composition are №2, №3, №5 and №7. The common among them is that they charge the body with a lot of energy. They can be taken individually or in combination, giving strength, helping to overcome the feeling of exhaustion and rapid fatigue, supporting the nervous system and bringing good mood.
