The most feared time of the year has arrived, summer vacation is over. Back to the city, to the routine, to get up early to go to work. Autumn is just around the corner, and that means colder weather and fewer hours of sunshine. If you notice that you lack energy, that you fall asleep in corners and with a low mood, this post is for you.
And what foods are your allies at this time?
This root from the Andes is an adaptogen, that is, it helps our body adapt to stressful situations. It is a powerful revitalizing, energizing and natural anti-stress that increases the body's ability to defend itself against physical and mental weakening.
Our ORGANIC MACA is rich in B vitamins, and an excellent source of calcium, zinc, magnesium and phosphorus.
It balances hormones, which is why it has often been used to treat premenstrual syndrome, low libido or infertility, as well as acne and sensitive skin problems.
Cocoa has a long list of very beneficial properties for our health. Improves memory, mood, reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases, increases immunity and energy. The Aztecs considered it a gift from the gods, and they were right. But be careful, you should not gorge on chocolate bars or conventional chocolates, made with processed cocoa, a lot of sugar and “bad” fats, but rather drink 100% pure cocoa often.
ORGANIC COCOA contains phenylethylamine, an alkaloid that increases the secretion of endorphins, neurotransmitters that contribute to a feeling of well-being. Cocoa also promotes the production of serotonin, a hormone of happiness, so if you notice that you lack the courage to do everything, incorporating this ingredient into your breakfasts will be key.
To combat fatigue and lack of desire, there is nothing like taking hemp seeds daily. They are the most nutritious seeds that exist, with a perfect concentration of proteins, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. They promote higher and stable energy levels, lower cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar, and also reduce inflammation, improving the immune system. Without a doubt, ORGANIC HEMP seeds are the best ingredient to add to your smoothies and salads this season.
If you incorporate these superfoods into your daily life, your defenses will be in optimal condition and there will be no one to stop you. What are you waiting for to start the “new course” fully?
