TIPS TO SUPPORT THE HEAT

If we are on the beach or in the pool during the whole day, it is recommended that we put ourselves in the shade from time to time, especially in the high hours of the sun so as not to become dehydrated or give us a heat stroke.
Green tea is well known for its multiple properties: it is diuretic, has a low caloric content and accelerates metabolism, among other benefits. If you are too lazy to take it hot, a good option is to add ice and a little lemon and you can take it anywhere to be always hydrated in a healthy way.

The secret to also strengthen your muscles is to eat more protein. A strawberry smoothie can be your perfect ally, it is also very easy to prepare: with a yogurt or a glass of milk and a cup of strawberries you will have the perfect protein shake for summer.

The apple shake is another very healthy option that will help you cleanse your body and burn fat. You can make an apple shake with: an apple, a yogurt, half a spoonful of honey and a little cinnamon.

High cholesterol becomes another serious health risk. The pomegranate is an anti-cholesterol fruit, the pomegranate juice provides important benefits and properties, it is also fruit with high doses of vitamins and folic acid.

We propose you to take our Granados, which is a 100% natural pomegranate juice, without additives, without sugars or preservatives. It is made with fresh pomegranates and cultivated in the Spanish Mediterranean. It is a product recognized by the Spanish Heart Foundation.

Granados is equivalent to taking three whole pomegranates squeezed, not from concentrate, so it is rich in vitamins (A, C, D, E, K, B1, B2, and niacin), minerals and natural antioxidants.

In Probelte Biotechnology we have innovated to obtain through a unique extraction process Granados.

One of the main characteristics of pomegranate juice is its high potassium content. Potassium contributes to normal muscle function and maintenance of normal blood pressure.

A bottle of Granados contains 300 mg of potassium, which is 15% of the recommended daily intake. A good option not to lose the type in summer and stay healthy at any time of the year.

Food is essential, take advantage of this time to prepare fresh and healthy dishes thanks to the variety of fruits and vegetables that we can access in summer. It is also essential to stay hydrated throughout the day because when temperatures rise, we sweat more and run the risk of becoming dehydrated. You have to drink a lot of liquid, do not fall easily into sugary drinks, there are healthy and natural alternatives to drink in summer, or at any time of year.
