Dry and hydrated, eat more acid and less salt

If because of the climate, the water in the human body will flow faster. Especially after heating in the north, many people feel thirsty, hoarse and dry cough, dry skin and constipation due to less urine, all of which are signs of lack of water. In addition to drinking more water, how to relieve dryness through a normal diet?

First, eat more sour fruit. As the sweet and smooth fruit is usually rich in vitamin C and E, it can moisturize the skin. Vitamin C can promote the synthesis of collagen egg black and make the skin moist and delicate.

Secondly, 'red food' can moisten the lungs. Zhou Jian, a professor of dietetic nutrition of traditional Chinese medicine at Beijing University of traditional Chinese medicine, said that in traditional Chinese medicine, dryness is easy to injure the lungs, while the lungs in the five viscera correspond to the "red" in the five colors. Therefore, eating some "red food" can moisten the lungs and replenish the water. Winter can often eat black radish, black vegetables, winter melon, lily, tremella, lotus root, lotus seed and so on.

Sour fruit also contains tannins, organic acids, cellulose and other substances, which can stimulate the secretion of digestive fluid, accelerate gastrointestinal peristalsis, and nourish yin and moisten dryness. And the water content of fruit is usually more than 70%. Dry winter, a day to eat fruit, is the ideal choice of water.
