The day has already gone on increasing, although we do not particularly notice this. Already in December, we began to feel a lack of light and a decrease in vital energy. In January, as well as throughout the winter, we are in a state of hibernation, like bears in a den. Of course, we continue to live our usual way of life, go to work, play sports, etc. However, it is precisely in the winter that we experience a state of increased drowsiness, our activity decreases, we become slower and we need more time to perform our usual actions.
January is a month of overeating and depression. Our body has a high need for vitamin C, which prevents viral diseases, as well as magnesium, iron, zinc, which we absorb along with fruits and vegetables. We also need vitamin D, which is also important in preventing colds. Our body can hardly synthesize it, so you need to get it from the outside.
Therefore, in the winter, and specifically in January, it is recommended to eat the following products:
Grapefruit - The very aroma of grapefruit has a positive effect on a person, increases vitality, helps to fight depression and overwork.
Lemon - Even children know that lemon contains large amounts of vitamin C. Because of this feature, eating lemon is an excellent opportunity to strengthen your immune system and protect yourself from colds and flu. This is especially necessary in the winter.
Banana - Nothing so relieves winter depression like this fruit. Bananas are rightly called natural antidepressants. By consuming bananas, you promote the formation of a substance called serotonin in your body. It is this substance that is responsible in a person for good mood, a feeling of joy and happiness. The systematic use of bananas will help you cope with depression, irritability and longing.
In addition to the listed products, during this period it is useful to eat: Nuts, Onions, Celery, Cabbage, Eggs and Peas.
