Voila, new season. You were asking yourself what food my menu may contain in order to not get sick this winter?
You are in right place to find out. JPsante will take you through three articles to give you some foods to naturally protect your immune system against virus and germs. For the first part, we will talk about the banana, cocoa, and citrus fruits.
Let’s starts with Banana.
BANANA IS FOOD YOU MUST NOT DEPRIVE YOURSELF OF
The banana is a fruit rich in magnesium and vitamin B6. These two elements are very important for our body. They help to optimize our energy and therefore our immune defenses.
Good to Know: the banana is suffering from the reputation of being a richer fruit than the others.
JPsante advises choosing the small bananas than not to having at all.
TO ARM, YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM AGAINST ACHES DO NOT THINK FAR THINK CITRUS FRUITS
Because there are rich in vitamins C and flavonoids, natural antioxidants.
VITAMIN C. WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT?
This vitamin possesses an anti-infectious action because it stimulates the organism defense reactions, activating the antibodies formation and the activity of white globules (the main cells of the immune system).
We have plenty citrus fruits. Which ones will do the job properly?
You can use orange, lemon, grapefruit, clementine, tangerine ...
THE COCOA GIVES TO THE IMMUNE SYSTEM A RESISTANCE POWER
The cocoa powder is rich in polyphenols ( anti-oxidants molecules) and the magnesium.
Among these components, the magnesium is very important.
It is so because our organism needs it to transform the energy contained in the meal into usable energy for the body: It reduces fatigue and gives to our immune defenses to be at their best.
HOW TO EAT IT?
To do, choose the powder one without sugar. Blend banana and mix it with one teaspoon of cocoa powder without sugar. The sugar taste of the fruit will make the cocoa powder less bitter. You can add also to yogurts or cakes.

Legumes: Almost complete Food
Lentils, chickpeas, split peas, dried beans ... "All these legumes contain both starch, protein, iron, fiber and low calories," explains Séverine Sénéchal. When temperatures fall, think of consuming them in soup!
Good To Know: "To get as much iron as possible from legumes, eat them with vitamin C, for example with lemon juice. In parallel, avoid drinking tea during the meal because it decreases the absorption of iron by the body, "describes the dietician and nutritionist
Yogurt: A Source Of Probiotics
In the dairy area in the supermarket, milk and cheese are not of great interest to the immune system.
This is not the case for "real" yogurts: "they are full of probiotics, bacteria beneficial to the immune system that will find their place within the intestinal flora and strengthen the effective intestinal barrier ag ... Read all
It all starts with a feeling of weight in the legs and swelling of the feet.
Possible causes are heat, prolonged standing (trampling) or sitting (at work, during a long flight or by car) or pregnancy ...
This feeling in the lower legs is linked to poor circulation. It happens more to women, it is favored in particular by warm temperatures, heredity, overweight, sedentary lifestyle, and tobacco.
The heavy and flabby legs are troublesome.
This phenomenon is intensified by tingling or swelling, mainly at the ankle level.

Memory "holes" can be mere signs of fatigue, overwork or stress, and everyone has it! However, do not forget the regular memory loss or do not underestimate what your entourage is saying about your ability to memorize. Over the years, our brain can become less efficient.
