Around half of Germans have back or joint pain at least once a week. And on top of that, spring fatigue doesn't make the start of the sunshine season any easier.

It is a strange phenomenon. While spring is slowly returning and nature is finally coming back to life, the exact opposite is happening to us. Instead of feeling a boost of energy, we start yawning and want to go to sleep. And yet we have been waiting so eagerly for spring! Between 30 and 50 percent of Germans feel listless and listless during the transitional period and are familiar with the phenomenon of springtime fatigue.

But why is that? Spring fatigue is caused, among other things, by the change in climate. The blood vessels dilate, blood pressure drops and this makes you tired. When the cold of winter gives way to warming temperatures, the body has to get used to it slowly. Furthermore, after winter the serotonin stores are relatively empty, but the melatonin concentration is high and that makes you tired. Until the imbalance of the hormones is back in balance, the body is in disarray. The Techniker Krankenkasse writes about this: The body needs about two to four weeks to get used to it and establish a new balance. And until this happens, some people are particularly tired, have circulation problems and suffer from headaches. As soon as the inner clock is adjusted again, spring fatigue should subside.

Body needs many vitamins, minerals, trace elements and proteins during this transitional period.

We also tend to eat heavy and rich foods during the cold season. However, those who suffer from spring fatigue should be careful not to put additional strain on their organism through their diet. The body needs many vitamins, minerals, trace elements and proteins during this transitional period. Schnitzel, chips and co. should be exchanged for lots of vegetables, fruit and low-fat products so that we don't even get the questionable pleasure of typical springtime fatigue symptoms such as fatigue, lack of concentration and motivation, mood swings, irritability, dizziness and headaches.

What can be done about it? For one thing, it is now important to spend more time outdoors. Nature is awakening and if you go for a walk in the beautiful spring sunshine, you produce the feel-good hormone serotonin. Lots of exercise and walks in the sunlight effectively boost hormone levels. Alternating showers also toughen up the immune system and get you ready for the start of spring.

Regular exercise and diet help keep the body healthy and fit

A study comes to frightening conclusions: Around half of Germans have back or joint pain at least once a week. And about 35 million people in Germany suffer from osteoarthritis, or so-called joint wear and tear, according to the Federal Ministry of Health. This has far-reaching consequences. It is well known that everything becomes more difficult when you are in pain. The quality of life decreases, the joy of movement, of activities with friends and family is lost, and even beloved hobbies such as gardening, tennis or hiking can possibly only be practised with considerable restrictions - or not at all.

But such complaints can be prevented. Regular exercise that really suits the person and his or her needs and possibilities, and a balanced diet help to keep the body healthy and fit for a long time. Prevention is the best medicine, and those who take care of their well-being at an early age will have fun and enjoyment for a long time. As far as these unpleasant impairments are not disease-related symptoms, Mother Nature has a whole range of exciting solutions on offer. These support the well-being of the joints in a natural way. This gives us strength and energy for all the tasks that challenge our joints. And there are, of course, quite a few of them - hardly any movement, hardly any activity where shoulders, knees, elbows, hips and co. are not challenged.

Chondroitin is supposed to stop cartilage degradation and renew cartilage that is no longer present.

Natura Vitalis has developed the product "Flexi-Bel" with licensed raw materials for joints, bones and cartilage for this purpose. The vital product supports the flexibility of the musculoskeletal system with its 140 joints and 206 bones with the right micronutrients. These include frankincense extract, devil's claw extract, willow bark extract, GlucosaGreen (vegetable glucosamine), Mythocondro (vegetable chondroitin sulphate) and sea pine.

Speaking of Mythocondro: Chondroitin is a food supplement that mainly consists of chondroitin sulphate. It is said to be able to stop cartilage degradation and renew cartilage that is no longer present. It also contains sulphur-containing amino acids as essential building blocks of the cartilage molecules in the human body. Glucosamine, on the other hand, occurs naturally in the human body. It is a component of connective tissue, cartilage and joint fluid. GlucosaGreen in the Natura Vitalis product is the world's first licensed vegan glucosamine, produced from non-GMO maize in a revolutionary fermentation process.
