Summer season comes along with many health problems, but there are certain seasonal fruits and vegetables that are effective in fighting with such health issues in the summer season.
In summers, dehydration is commonly found disease amongst the people of all age-groups. The scorching heat makes us sweat more, consequently, the average water intake (1.5l or 2l) seems too less for our body. Drinking water all the day, again and again, is what people find tiring. However, one can drink water by eating in solid, that is, fruits and vegetables. Watermelon, cucumber, cantaloupe (kharbooja), and spinach are a few of the great sources of water. All of these have nearly 90% of water and anti-oxidants required to hydrate our skin and body from within.
The prolonged exposure to the sun causes heat stroke where one feels dizzy, dehydrated, overly exhausted, sweats excessively, and uneasy breathing. To prevent heat stroke, one must stay hydrated throughout the day and eat healthy fruits and vegetables to build the protective shield within the body. Aam panna, buttermilk (chaach), and mint juice reduces high blood pressure and is extremely beneficial to overcome heat stroke. These have a cooling effect on our body, skin, and mind which combats the harmful effects of heat stroke.
Spinach, Ayurvedic green tea, cucumbers, and tomatoes are advantageous in treating inflammation and burns caused when skin comes in direct contact with sunlight’s UV radiations during summers. These vitamin C and water enriched fruits protect our skin from UV-radiation while nourishing the dark spots, or redness with anti-oxidants. Including each of these in our daily diet help us retain the replenished skin and strengthen our body to endure the inevitable UV radiations.
Summers directly affect our digestive system as it increases the chances of bacterial infection due to contaminated water and food. While there are several food items which soothe the stomach in turmoil, some of the vegetables and fruits like bananas, apples, and boiled potatoes can instantly provide relief to one.
