Are vitamins and minerals the only ones beneficial for energy and immunity?

With each season, the body mobilizes important resources to adapt to the transition from high temperatures to cold, humidity and precipitation, to another feeding program, as well as to a different rhythm of activities. In order to maintain our health in the context of various requests, specific to each period, we must pay special attention to certain aspects depending on the season we are going through.

Attention to energy and immunity

In periods of low temperatures, winter and early spring, problems arise due to numerous viruses that can break the immune system's barrier of defense. Their action is favored by strong winds, which dries the nasal mucosa and promotes the penetration of pathogens into the body. Frequent switching from low outside temperatures to higher indoor temperatures and vice versa also allows easier installation of viruses and colds. The result is a general poor condition, lack of energy, and the appearance of annoying symptoms such as coughing, chills, temperature or sneezing.

The stress of this period, when many new projects start, the program loaded and the lack of adequate nutrition are additional reasons why we are more vulnerable and for which the energy level reaches minimum values. If we are not attentive to food, we tend to bypass the vegetables, important sources of vitamins and minerals, and to choose the variant of the culinary preparations mainly from meat and carbohydrates, a faster solution for our time, but more difficult to manage for the body. But are vitamins and minerals the only nutrients that contribute to energy and immunity?

Antioxidants, amino acids, digestive enzymes, fatty acids

Vitamins and minerals are the first categories of nutrients we think about when we want to get energy, immunity and optimal health. Besides these, there are other beneficial nutrients, which the body needs and which we must consider. These are antioxidants, amino acids, digestive enzymes and fatty acids.

For example, antioxidants protect the body against oxidative stress, strengthen the immune system and increase the body's resistance to infections. The amino acid glutamine contributes to the synthesis of proteins, like the other amino acids, to the stimulation of the immune system and to the recovery of the body after physical exertion and convalescent states. Digestive enzymes support the digestion and absorption of nutrients. Moreover, the quality of enzymes in the body is closely related to the level of energy, vitality and health. Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids fight the variations of emotional states, help rest and reduce impulsivity, regulate brain functions and have a hypocholesterolemic and cardiovascular protective effect.

In order to increase the energy and for immunity that is difficult to defeat, naturopathic medicine also uses medicinal mushrooms. This special category of natural ingredients is used in traditional Asian medicine for proven results over thousands of years.
