How nutrition contributes to more energy, relaxation and healthy skin

When we have low energy or poorer looking skin, we often tend to reach for certain energizing drinks, such as coffee and energy drinks, or creams. But often the answer is much simpler than expensive creams or high-sugar energy drinks. Our diet has a much greater impact on how we feel than we may have been taught.

Directly to:

More energy

This is something we could all use; more energy. But how do you ensure that you get more energy through food?* These foods can help you!

  • Unsaturated fats, such as avocado, coconut oil, raw nuts, olive oil, peanut oil or fish.
  • Vegetable proteins, such as tofu, tempeh, legumes (such as beans, peas, lentils and soy) and nuts.
  • Nutrition with B vitamins; seeds, legumes, eggs, fatty fish, sprouts, quinoa, green leafy vegetables such as kale and endive, lentils, black beans, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and asparagus.

*More energy is of course related to many other factors, for example enough exercise and sufficient rest. Keep this in mind!

A dietary supplement serves as a complement to your daily diet and can help fill your deficiencies. That is why many people use a food supplement. Likewise for more energy. Below you will find our natural and plant-based food supplements for more energy:

Healthy skin

When we are sad or stressed, our skin appears less shiny, drier, dehydrated and less colorful than usual. When we are healthy, our complexion appears beautiful and even. This reflects the relationship that exists between skin and health. Through nutrition you can contribute to a healthy skin. These foods will help you on your way to healthy skin:

  • Zinc-rich foods such as meat, fish, poultry, legumes and nuts and seeds.
  • Nutrition with B vitamins; seeds, legumes, eggs, fatty fish, sprouts, quinoa, green leafy vegetables such as kale and endive, lentils, black beans, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and asparagus.
  • Sufficient sulfur-containing amino acids for the construction of the skin, such as vegetable proteins such as tofu, tempeh, legumes and fresh nuts.

In addition, it is important that you consume fresh food and avoid trans fats, hydrogenated fats, processed foods, ready meals, food from ‘packages and cans’ as much as possible.

Relaxation

After a long, perhaps stressful day, relaxing is very important, but not easy for everyone. After all, we easily keep thinking or worrying about things that have happened or are yet to happen. You might not think so right away, but certain foods can help you find the rest your body needs. Below you will find a few products that can help you with this:

  • Tart cherries. This fruit contains high concentrations of melatonin and a range of phenolic compounds that have both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Tryptophan rich foods, such as milk, turkey, chicken, fish, eggs, pumpkin seeds, beans, peanuts, cheese and green leafy vegetables. L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid important for the production of melatonin.
  • Herbal teas, such as chamomile, lavender, and melissa.

Summary

Nutrition has a big impact on how we feel. For example, our energy level, our skin and our level of relaxation are influenced by the food we eat. For more energy, you would do well to eat unsaturated fats, vegetable proteins and foods with B vitamins. For healthy skin, eating zinc-rich foods, foods with B vitamins and sulfur-containing amino acids would benefit. If you want to relax, it helps to eat tart cherries or trypophan-rich foods. Or drink an herbal tea, such as chamomile, lavender or melissa.
