Feeling Dehydrated due to summer heat? Include vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates and fats to keep one’s mental health in check, instead of junk food that provides instant energy.

Summers are tough and it’s easy to feel dehydrated. Consuming fast food or junk food can make it worse by damaging gut bacteria and causing mood swings, starting with nervousness and anxiety. That is because simple carbohydrates lead to acidity in the gut. Even refined sugar and dessert can make you feel bloated.

During summers, one needs to check their water intake, in the form of juice or water-based smoothies.

Here are some foods that can help you fight the summer heat:

Milk is high in antioxidants, vitamins B2 and B12, as well as protein and calcium. The protein lactium helps in lowering blood pressure, while the potassium in milk can help relieve tense muscles.

Chamomile has been shown to help with the heatwave due to its antioxidant content and anti-inflammatory effects. Having a cup of chamomile tea after dinner is recommended.

Limit or avoid alcohol and caffeine, which cause bloating after eating.

Stay hydrated. Dehydration can cause various illness during summers such as catching a common cold, heatwave stocks, nausea, body ache, etc.

Choose complex carbs that boost the chemical serotonin. Select whole-grain bread and whole-grain cereals instead of sugary snacks or beverages.

Vitamin C is not only a physiological antioxidant but also helps to regenerate other antioxidants within the body. Include vitamin C rich foods like amla, guava, oranges, lemon, tomato, bell peppers and green chillies.

Having low levels of vitamin B-12 can contribute to hypertension and feeling uneasy. Check for vitamin deficiency in such cases.
