Incorporating the fruits into our lives

Of course, you already know that fruits in their generality are rich in vitamins and minerals. Therefore, they are widely used in various products for the skin and hair. However, its truly potent effect takes place when we consume them directly, when we eat them and incorporate all their nutrients naturally into our body. This direct consumption of fruits, in their original form or in tasty milkshakes, gives you, in addition, the guarantee of truly natural components that have not been manipulated with chemicals, dyes or preservatives that, in the long run, also harm our body and our health.

It may be interesting for you to know that in the specific case of vitamins contained in fruits, they have an antioxidant effect. This means that these vitamins counteract the negative effects of so-called free radicals which are nothing more than highly reactive substances produced by our own body when we maintain inadequate feeding, we are subjected to stress or are prey to sedentariness and that accelerate the process of aging, deteriorating our cells and tissues.

Why are fruits a solution?

We must not be frightened by having within ourselves a mechanism that is harmful to our body because, as we said, there are solutions and among them is the consumption of fruits. The fruits have an important amount of potassium, magnesium, bromine, copper, zinc and calcium.

In fact, you can combine the fruits into your food recipes, especially in your drinks and natural milkshakes. This will help you balance your diet and achieve not only a good figure, but also good health.

Studies have shown that maintaining a balanced diet by eating whole grain cereals, nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetables is an ideal solution for supplying our body with the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients belonging to the antioxidant group. This type of diet also reduces the risk of heart disease and cancer. Ideal for preparing natural homemade shakes for slimming are strawberry, different types of berries, banana, pineapple, melon and lemon. Here we propose five of the best shakes to lose weight and maintain the ideal body weight.

For its properties and its antioxidant power it is often recommended to make it a part of your diet if you want to fight wrinkles and cellulite. Its flavor is enhanced in a good milkshake. The combination of the strawberry with milk (skim, if you are trying to lose weight) is exquisite and delicious, so it will be very easy for you to motivate other family members to consume this fruit as well. After passing the fruit through the mixer and getting the milkshake, do not forget to strain it to extract the seeds and improve its texture. You can skip the straining process if you prefer more texture in your drink.
