Melancholy can make you lethargic, stale and you can end up depressed and moody. You should not let yourself come down with nostalgia! With little effort – nice music and respect for a daily diet – any trace of fatigue will disappear.
The secret of a good and consistent tone consists, besides the daily exercise and water consumption, in a proper nutrition. A good nutrition is the key to fatigue treatment.
Organic products which are high in vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients are always on top of the list recommend in a healthy diet.
Associated with essential carbohydrates and proteins, they help the body burn calories efficiently and produce the energy you need daily.
Here is a list of nutrients that will treat fatigue, help your "internal engine” function at full capacity and under the best conditions. The minerals and vitamins of fatigue treatment:
• Vitamin B contributes directly to cellular energy metabolism through thiamine – vitamin B1, riboflavin, lactoflavine and ovoflavine – vitamin B2, pantothenic acid – Vitamin B5, Pyridoxine – B6, biotin – B8, folic acid – and balamin B9 – B12. Take these vitamins from whole grains, bread, beans, potatoes, nuts, seeds, fish, eggs, yogurt and other dairy products.
• Vitamin C – ascorbic acid – fulfills an important role in the metabolism of folic acid, glucose and of collagen, helping the entire body face the stress factors. This vitamin is found in many vegetables and raw fruits (strawberries, blueberries, and citrus).
• Iron carries oxygen to cells. When a person presents iron deficiency – that person is anemic – it feels tired and lethargy both physical and psychological. Iron-rich food sources include seeds, nuts, beans and seafood. It is true that animal products (black pudding, fish) contain iron, but besides iron they have high quantities of saturated fats which increase fatigue and stimulate blood clotting in the arteries. If you opt for an animal product with high iron content, make sure you choose light meat and not fat streaky.
• Potassium plays a vital role in energy production on a cellular level. The main dietary sources of potassium are bananas, potatoes, seeds and whole grain.
• Zinc is an essential trace element the body involves in digestive and metabolic processes. Zinc is found in shellfish, seeds, beans, dairy products, eggs and animal meat.
Have you ever noticed how sleep overwhelms you after enjoying meals that are high in fat?
When you think about food you should consider both the food that is appropriate to consume and the food is good to avoid. Generally, consumption of saturated fats (fried foods, desserts, meat animals) disrupts the body and cause fatigue.
Consuming fat is important, but you must be very careful to choose the right type of fat. Now that vacations and holidays are over, you have greater independence in terms of foods that you eat.
Orient yourself according to the light, color, and flavor and forget about sweet, salty and fatty. Find foods that are made with olive oil. The darker the oil color, the more vitamins and flavors are included. Add it to green salads, tomatoes, and bean-pods or use it in any combination you want.
Nuts, like olive oil are monounsaturated fat source. Foods rich in refined sugar increase fatigue states. Sugar determines growth and rapid descent of glucose in the blood. Sudden drops give you the feeling of total energy loss (in such cases you feel exhausted, drained of energy).
If you want to have energy, limit your consumption of sweets, drinks and products that are high in sugar. If you feel the acute abstention of sweets try diabetic desserts. These products are specially designed to prevent sudden changes in blood glucose levels.
