winter jujube improves human immunity

Dongzao contains aspartic acid, threonine, serine and other 19 kinds of essential amino acids, especially vitamin C, which can improve human immunity and prevent cold. In addition, it is rich in carbohydrates and cyclic adenosine monophosphate, which can reduce the damage of various chemicals to the liver and effectively protect the liver.
winter sugarcane can nourish blood and moisten dryness, not only refresh, but also clear away heat, lower Qi, tonify lung and stomach. Sugarcane contains a lot of iron, calcium, phosphorus, manganese, zinc and other trace elements necessary for human body, especially the iron content, known as “buxueguo”. After winter, many office workers often feel dizzy and drowsy, and their reaction ability declines. At this time, eating some sugarcane is of great benefit.
three point regimen in winter
first, more water.
experts said that since the beginning of winter, the number of patients with dry throat, itchy skin and epistaxis has increased significantly. She said that under normal circumstances, the human body will evaporate about 1000 ml of water every day. After heating, the room will dry and lose more water. In such an environment for a long time, the body is naturally prone to the above problems.
experts suggest that although sweating and urination decrease in winter, water is still needed to maintain the normal operation of cells in the brain and various organs of the body. Therefore, health care in autumn and winter should pay attention to drink more water, usually daily water should be maintained at 2000 ~ 3000 ml.
second, sweat a little.
experts said that the cold weather in winter makes it easy for people to shrink their hands and reduce the amount of exercise, but proper exercise in winter is still indispensable. To move muscles and bones properly, sweat a little, so as to strengthen the body.
“exercise should be a combination of movement and stillness. Yoga is based on fever or slight perspiration. You can also insist on soaking your feet in warm water until you sweat slightly. But you can’t sweat too much. On the one hand, sweating too much is frustrating, which goes against the way of Yang Qi hiding in winter. On the other hand, you are easy to catch cold Chen Jinping said.
third, go to bed early. According to experts, Sun Simiao, a famous doctor of the Tang Dynasty, said: “it’s not suitable to go out in the early morning and go back at night in winter, which offends Hanwei.” Go to bed early to nourish Yang Qi, and get up late to strengthen Yin essence. Therefore, sufficient sleep should be ensured for health preservation in winter, which is beneficial to the accumulation of Yang Qi and Yin fluid; After the beginning of winter’s daily life, we must remember to “raise Tibet”.
