Not just clothing and air conditioners. There are also some foods that help the body cope with the cold better.
Foods to make friends during the cold days.
When chilled, it is the ideal time for oats. Oat, which is sold everywhere, is a full grain so will give the right dose of fiber and vegetable protein by saturating it in the first dish. It contains a powerful starch called beta-glucan.
Studies have shown that only 3 grams a day with beta-glucan can lower the level of bad cholesterol from 5 to 10%.
Prepare it by dissolving two pieces of black chocolate in the milk. Black chocolate contains flavonoids, a type of antioxidant that is thought to reduce the damage caused by free radicals, potential promoters of tumors and cardiovascular disease.
A study published in the Journal of Immunology Research shows that red blood cells are less susceptible to free radicals after consuming a flavonoid-rich cocoa drink.
We have used these even without knowing that they keep us warm. Red beans are a good source of iron and copper. Eating a few tablespoons of a soup or dish cooked with them helps the muscles use more oxygen and strengthens the immune system. A plate contains on average 15 grams of protein and fiber.
Unlike animal protein foods, black beans almost do not contain unsaturated fats. Studies of the American Chemical Society also show that their dark skin contains high levels of flavonoids, disease-fighting antioxidants, compared to other types of beans.
