5 foods for an energized fall season

Oily fish – Rich in omega-3, these good fats (which are beneficial to the heart and brain) play a positive role in improving our mood and emotions, thus helping us fight fatigue which is much encountered with the start of the fall season.

Grapes – The essential feature that distinguishes grapes is their content in polyphenols, more specifically resveratrol which is mainly present in large quantities in black grapes. Also, grapes are considered as a good source of B group vitamins (vitamins B1, B2, B3 mostly), in addition to vitamin PP. As for minerals, grapes provide us with sulfur, calcium, phosphorus, iron and potassium which make this fruit our best friend during the fall season.

Broccoli – This is a vegetable that’s rich in vitamin C and is an excellent source of vitamins K, B2 and B9. Moreover, it contains calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. In addition, this vegetable is rich in indoles and sulfur compounds which facilitate the elimination of carcinogens induced by pollution.

Seafood – Such food is characterized by its high zinc content, an antioxidant which boosts the immune system (so that it retains its strength) and helps fight cold.

Lemon – It contains those powerful flavonoids and natural limonoids which reinforce its beneficial effect on our health. Lemon is particularly interesting for strengthening our immune system. It can also be effective against cold and flu.
