We look at the thermometer, no doubt, it’s still winter. Colds and tiredness are always present at home… To fill up with energy, here are five 100% natural foods. Coffee will no longer be your only ally to hold the shock!
1. Spirulina, the gold of the sea
It’s true, eat seaweed, it is not a dream. But when you know the properties of Spirulina, a micro-seaweed called the “steak of the sea”, we take the step without a problem. Especially since it does not taste bad. It is found in the form of tablets, but the best way would be to consume it in filament to preserve all its virtues. In addition to minerals, proteins, micronutrients, zinc, copper, manganese, iron, the eight amino acids necessary for the proper functioning of the body are contained in this dietary supplement. It also helps to purify the blood and boosts the immune system. Two to five grams a day is enough.
2. A fresh pollen cure
After the sea, comes the hive. For an anti-fatigue and revitalizing treatment, three weeks are enough. At breakfast, opt for a teaspoon of fresh pollen and you will be full of energy. To caulk its slightly acidic taste slightly, it is possible to mix it with a small portion of fruit compote (without the added sugar of course). Fresh pollen can be found in organic stores or herbalism. And if all the products in the hive tempt you, the royal jelly will give your immune system a boost.
3. Good coffee with antioxidants
Coffee is an excellent antioxidant. It is not necessary to eradicate it completely from your cupboards if you do not have hypertension, sleep disorders, or heart problems. On the other hand, two cups a day are enough, to consume if possible before 4 pm. Choose good organic coffee, roasted and black, richer in antioxidants. Studies show that coffee reduces the risk of cancer, memory problems and relieves migraines. A small pleasure good for the health.
4. Green juices
Green juices, also known as “green smoothies”, are perfect weapons to clean the body and remineralize it deeply. A good spring cleaning, ideal before the return of the beautiful days. Cucumbers, spinach, parsley, celery, lettuce, zucchini, broccoli… Strong in chlorophyll, these fashionable herbal juices in Japan are slowly starting to cross our borders, and that’s good. They improve the concentration, nourish the good bacteria, purify the blood, repair and embellish the skin, the nails, and the hair, allowing better digestion by regulating the intestinal transit. To consume, drink on waking or half an hour before a meal to absorb all the benefits. You can add an apple or a pear, but be careful not to add more fruits, synonymous with sugars.
5. Sprouted seeds to fight deficiencies
The nutritional benefits of sprouted seeds are undeniable. More and more present in our organic stores, it is also possible to sprout them yourself. They are rich in fiber, minerals, trace elements, iron, enzymes, amino acids, and essential fatty acids. For the growth of the smaller ones, watercress, mung beans, lentils, dry peas, and chickpeas are chosen. For those who suffer from anaemia, barley, sunflower, mung beans or Kamut are excellent. For beautiful skin, wheat, spelled, fennel, radish and rocket will be faithful allies. A small warning, however, the tomato, eggplant, and rhubarb seeds should not be consumed because some parts are toxic.
