Have you ever wondered why in the heat we prefer vegetable salads and green cabbage soup, and in winter we are more attracted to rich soup, fatty pork and Olivier salad? This is no coincidence. We just intuitively choose foods that warm the body.
About warming food was known in antiquity. So, in the Indian system of medicine Ayurveda, food was given great importance. Indian healers believed that for health it is necessary to eat properly, in particular, there are warming foods in the cold, and cooling ones in the heat.

What is hypothermia?
Lowering body temperature below the level necessary for the natural functioning of organs and maintaining metabolism is called hypothermia. In the people, such a condition is better known as hypothermia.
The body temperature of a healthy person is 36.6 ° C. Slight deviations from 36.0 ° C to 36.9 ° C are possible. The mechanism of thermoregulation is responsible for supporting such indicators. It is he who resists the cold acting on the body. As soon as the body temperature begins to drop, the thermoregulatory mechanism immediately activates the metabolism. This leads to an increase in heat generation and a decrease in its return.
But if the cold acts on the body for a long time, then its own resources are exhausted. Body temperature begins to decline. The physiological norm, after which the processes occurring in the body are disrupted, is an indicator of 34.0 ° C. If the temperature drops below this value, hypothermia develops. Continue reading
If health begins to fail, and the reflection in the mirror does not please at all, then thoughts about vitamin deficiency immediately arise. To replenish the supply of nutrients, the diet is immediately enriched with vegetables and fruits. However, it is not possible to compensate for the deficiency of all nutrients (for example, B vitamins). Deterioration of well-being is progressing. And if measures are not taken in a timely manner, serious pathologies may develop. So, what foods contain vitamin B? And what threatens a prolonged lack of nutrients?
Numerous Vitamin B
A person should receive all useful nutrients, regardless of age. Lack of one of the vitamins can lead to the development of disorders. Vitamins B ensure the flow of metabolic processes in the body.

Each of the vitamins included in group B has its purpose. Continue reading
