As getting a lot of questions by mail, messenger and live, decided to start answering one at a time shortly here on my blog.
Is it normal that we feel energy shortages in the spring? What are the possible ways to "recharge"? Is it necessary to use food supplements, vitamins?
No, feeling the energy deficit is not normal - it's a signal that we do something wrong in our lives. Either our diet is poorly matched, or we exercise too much or too little, or we are stressed. And usually all at once...
When we begin to feel energy shortages - we have to look for a reason. If we do not find it, ask help from health professionals or doctors, as this may be the onset of a severe illness.
The seasonal lack of energy, due to vitamins and sun shortages is also possible. But in our times, when fresh fruits and greens are available all year round, and although they are not of the highest quality, you can fully satisfy your needs if you can afford them, of course... The most important thing is to eat them and the best choice - organic.
Well, about the sunshine, we, the Nordic people, have to use every possible moment, and as soon as we see the sun, we have to go out and enjoy it. What is concerning dietary supplements and vitamins, we need to treat them almost like medicine, and they should be used only when you are very well aware of why.
In springtime, we should eat more fermented veggies and strong greens such as Rocket salad(why do you think it named so?) or Coriander greens, known as an excellent source of dietary fibre, manganese, iron and magnesium as well. Also, coriander leaves are rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin K, contain small amounts of calcium, phosphorous, potassium, thiamine, niacin and carotene. Additionally, seek for vitamin C and especially vitamin D3.
If you know the reason of your energy shortage and it is just lack of sleep or tons of work that is still had to be done, you can try Stress Away or En-R-Ge blends - they can help to activate your body systems and let you reach the "better time stretch."
So keep sending me questions, and I will try to answer them.
See you :-)
