Tips for a healthy carnival
- Vitamin C – is very important for your health and prevents illnesses and viruses. Especially in autumn and winter, vitamin C is an excellent addition to maintain your resistance.
- Zinc – dispels and prevents colds. It gives the immune system a boost, prevents bacilli from ending up in the nose through the mucous membrane and reduces the multiplication of bacteria.
- Vitamin D – to support the immune system. Most people also need additional vitamin D from October to April because little or no vitamin D is produced in the skin during that period.
- Echinacea – is a popular and age-old herbal remedy for influenza and colds and stimulates the immune system.
Drink enough water in between. Drinking alcohol removes moisture from your body and this causes headaches. Therefore, drink 2 large glasses of water before you go to sleep to be able to better dispose of the waste. Also the next morning it is important to drink enough.
Try to sleep 7 hours a night. A good night’s rest is necessary for recovery of your body. Sleep shortage not only reduces energy, but can also lead to all sorts of physical complaints.
Take a healthy and nourishing breakfast before you start. For example, choose a tasty green smoothie with protein powder, a banana-egg pancake, or an omelette with avocado on spelled bread. Tip: bananas are an easy and healthy carnival snack on the go. They calm the stomach and provide good soil thanks to starches and sugars.
