Autumn is a season of harvest, and also a good season for health conditioning. It is the time to replace the energy your organs consumed over Summer.
The following are good foods to help your body recover:
Eat dark vegetables, especially green leafy and orange-yellow vegetables. In the summer, people often eat fruits which have a high water content, but these fruits have low carotene content. This can easily lead to Vitamin A deficiency. This creates bulging hair follicles, dry and rough skin, and dry eyes. Orange-yellow vegetables and green leafy vegetables are rich in carotene, such as carrots, spinach, kale, broccoli, cabbage, etc. These vegetables are ideal to eat in the Autumn.
Gastrointestinal diseases often develop during the Autumn. Stomach-nourishing food, such as pumpkin, millet, cabbage, ginger, and papaya help to prevent such diseases. Yogurt, fermented soya beans, and other fermented food also support good health in this season.
Eat More Potatoes
Potatos grow well at this time. Yams, taro, potatoes, sweet potatoes, etc., are all good choices. Potatoes are rich in B vitamins, potassium, magnesium and other minerals, and are also a good source of dietary fiber, which helps the body absorb nutrition.
Autumn is also a season for cold and other respiratory problems, especially if care is not taken to prevent sudden temperature changes. American Ginseng, which contains rich ginsenosides, can enhance the body’s immune system. It is also rich in amino acids and vitamins.
Eat a few nuts every day. We suggest peanuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds and other nuts. Nuts can help keep the heart healthy, and provide Vitamin E and other trace elements.
