To enjoy this summer 🌞 Measures against lowering immunity in summer!

Hello, this is Suzuki, a registered dietitian at Ren MURO Kagurazaka.

This season is getting hotter and hotter.

Compared to the cold season, going outside, going to the beach, exercising,

Isn't there a lot of people who are active?

However, in summer, it is said that the immune system is surprisingly prone to decline .

In order to make it less likely to get infected with viruses, such as food poisoning and summer colds, which are beginning to increase again,

We need measures to increase immunity firmly in summer 💪

[Causes that immunity tends to decrease in summer]

The decline in summer immunity is more likely to occur due to the following causes.

(1) Imbalanced nutritional balance due to anorexia

(2) Intestinal cold due to too much cold food

③ Indoor and outdoor temperature difference stress

(4) Poor quality of sleep due to difficulty sleeping or getting cold

1 and 2 are of particular interest.

In the summer, when appetite tends to decrease, the amount of food you eat decreases, and you tend to eat light, easy-to-eat foods.

Nutritional balance tends to be bad.

Furthermore, in the summer when we consume more cold drinks and ice cream,

When the intestines are cold and the work drops, the immune force of the intestines will also be easier to drop .

[for summer immunity ✨]

In order not to weaken the immune system in the summer,

It is also important to take care of your daily meals while taking care of cold measures due to air conditioning and lack of sleep.

Focusing on carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins, which are the energy sources of the body,

While keeping in mind the intake of vitamins and minerals that are easily lost through sweat,

It is important to activate the immunity of the "intestine", which is the cornerstone of the body's immunity .

Among the various fermented foods, "Komekoji Amazake" is easy to consume every day.

The oligosaccharides and dietary fiber contained in rice koji amazake serve as food for good bacteria,

You can expect to improve the intestinal immunity while drinking it by adjusting the intestinal balance .

[What is the recommended way to take amazake to prevent intestinal cold? ]

On a hot day, the taste of cold amazake is exceptional,

For those who tend to eat a lot of cold foods or who have anorexia,

It would be nice to warm it up, add ginger, or bring it back to room temperature before drinking .

Even with cold amazake, by drinking plain water either before or after,

You can also prevent the "intestinal cold" that you care about.

When the intestinal environment is in place, the intestinal function becomes active, and as a result, it also prevents "intestinal cold" 👍

While taking care of your daily life so that your immunity does not decrease in the summer,

With the help of a glass of amazake , I want to spend this summer in good health! 🌞
