Summer hydration of the body

Summer hydration of the body

 

In summer months air temperatures soar up, so we have to properly take care of our body.

Responding to hydration is the basis of our existence.

About water, life does not need to be persuaded, but we often forget about the systematic drinking habit of the day.

What gives us and what is the impact of drinking water?

  • We irrigate all the cells of our body
  • Metabolic processes run smoothly and are not shaken
  • We detox and purify the limitation of toxins and harmful metabolites
  • Skin is firm and moisturized – we delay wrinkles
  • Our brain (85% water) works better, we have better concentration and greater attention
  • We have more energy
  • We reduce the likelihood of headaches and migraines (when we are often dehydrated the first signal our body sends is a headache)
  • We help reduce body mass and improve metabolism

 

There is no doubt that the basis of hydration is WATER – preferably highly mineralized or moderately mineralized, because it contains valuable nutrients that we lose together with (magnesium, sodium and potassium).

Add freshly squeezed lemon juice, fresh mint leaves, lemon balm or some seasonal fruit to the water, which will further refreshing and delicately “cool” the body (such as mint and citrus cool down).

Those who work “outdoors” and arrive most of the day in the open air during the heat should also add to this “lemnisiades” a little good honey quality and a pinch of Himalayan salt.

Himalayan salt, which contains as many as 84 elements, will make up the mineral deficiencies, and honey will add energy and will cause the water to be “stopped” in the body.

In this way the inhabitants of the Arab countries will deal with the heat. Drinking strong and very sweet tea with mint leaves is their daily ritual.

 

WHAT DO WE KNOW?

  • My proven way to “survive” the heat is green tea!

Its unquestionable advantage is the cooling effect.
Perfectly quenches thirst, refreshing, especially when we add lemon patch and fresh mint leaves.

In the morning I brew the jug and sip all day 🙂

  • Coconut water!A great isotonic that hydrates the limits and replenishes lost electrolytes. The taste is slightly sweet although it does not contain added sugar.

    About her miraculous properties I found myself in Thailand where the heat and humid air was getting in the way.

When buying coconut water, let’s choose this 100% without any extra, unnecessary additives. The best is the fresh coconut, but its availability on different geographic widths is different 🙂

 

  • Fruit and herbal teas (preferably in the form of natural dried) – do not contain caffeine, so they do not drain. In addition they purify (eg nettle), relax (melissa) and contain antioxidants (eg purges).
    They can be a base for various cocktails and lemonades.

  • Natural and without added vegetable juices – I especially recommend tomato juice, which has a lot of potassium (which we lose with then). Add a pinch of Himalayan salt to it – we will additionally fill the minerals.

  • Smoothe and fruit smoothies – no added sugar, but seasonal fruit that is abundant in the summer. Strawberries, watermelons, melons, peaches, cherries contain lots of water, valuable vitamins and minerals, but also fructose, so drink them in moderation and do not substitute them with water.

 

  • Vegetables, soups and chillies – they contain lots of water and vitamins and minerals (especially potassium and sodium).

 

WHAT SHOULD WE AVOID IN FIXING?

  • Coffee and drinks containing caffeine – drain the body, rinse precious minerals.

 

  • Alcohol – dehydrates and causes pressure jumps. Drinks with ice and “cold beer” only seem to cool us down.

 

  • Any soda drinks with sugar or sweeteners and a mass of artificial chemical additives.
    Apparently healthy sweetened fruit juice and fruit juices, which can contain up to 5 teaspoons of refined sugar in a glass!

REMEMBER:

In summer and hot days, the amount of fluids you drink should be increased up to 3 liters per day.

Drink regularly, small sips throughout the day, even when we do not feel thirsty.

And what about the temperature of the drinks?

We refrain from very cold and icy fluids that can lead to stomach and intestinal contraction and thereby impair proper digestive processes.

Let’s choose warm liquids which, despite appearances, will cool down our body (after drinking warm or hot drink our body starts to sweat, so we maintain proper thermoregulation and “remove” harmful products of skin metabolism).

Raw asparagus salad with strawberries and crispy quinoa

Raw asparagus salad with strawberries and crispy quinoa

Have you tried raw asparagus?

If not, then you must necessarily be tempted to make a miracle in the “raw” version.

Extremely juicy, crispy and expressive asparagus can be eaten in raw form.

Asparagus, in addition to being well watered, simultaneously cleanses the body of toxins.

In combination with diuretic strawberries, they are a great idea for a super light salad that will take care of our health and beautiful radiant appearance.

The benefits and health benefits of strawberries you can read more HERE (click)

 

Have you eaten a roasted quinoa?
If not, then definitely try it because it is delicious!

Crunchy, a little reminiscent of the prepared rice and a little popcorn 🙂

It perfectly blends in fresh salads, replacing popular toasts, but it is definitely more rich in protein, vitamins and nutrients, and dietary fiber, which provides additional cleansing benefits.

Sweet with cinnamon and a hint of maple syrup is also delicious and then we have a super healthy and homemade “quinoa-granola”, which recipe will soon 🙂

The salad is a healthy portion of fat, in particular omega 3 in the form of cold pressed hemp oil (or linseed oil).

The character is also pomegranate molasses, but if you are not in her possession of balsamic cream * will also work great with the other flavors.

Salad consume with your favorite blend of herbs and a hint of coconut oil

* when buying balsamic cream choose one that contains only concentrated grape must and balsamic vinegar. It should also not contain preservatives.
