After the beginning of winter, the weather is getting colder and colder. Strong adults may not adapt to the decline of temperature for the moment. For the middle-aged and elderly people with weak body, they are more likely to feel cold. In addition to adding clothes and quilts in time and doing a good job in cold prevention and warmth preservation, they can eat more food that helps to improve their ability to resist the cold. Then let the old yellow calendar introduce to you what the old man is afraid of cold after the beginning of winter.


more iron. Iron participates in the synthesis of heme containing iron in the human body and improves the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood. Therefore, the oxygen supply of peripheral tissues will be reduced and the energy metabolism of human tissues will be impaired. Naturally, people will feel cold due to insufficient heat production.

therefore, the elderly should pay attention to supplement more iron rich foods, such as lean meat, fish, animal liver, egg yolk, beans, celery, mushrooms, black fungus, etc. However, the cholesterol of animal liver and egg yolk is high, so you can't eat too much. You can eat it once a week, while fried celery, mushroom meat slices, cold fungus and so on can often appear on the dinner table.


should not only supplement iron containing food, but also eat more food rich in vitamin C, so as to facilitate the body's absorption of iron.

more iodine. The elderly can eat more iodine containing food in winter. Hypothyroidism in the elderly will cause poor local and systemic blood circulation, especially the disorder of limb peripheral blood circulation, resulting in cold hands and feet.

and iodine contributes to the synthesis of thyroxine in the body, improves the basic metabolism of the human body, and then produces heat effect and reduces the symptoms of fear of cold. Iodine containing foods include kelp, seaweed, shellfish, oyster, sardine, spinach, fish and shrimp.

eat walnuts properly. In addition to daily diet, you can also prepare small snacks such as walnuts. The phospholipids rich in walnut kernel are important raw materials for human cells, which can enhance cell activity, promote hematopoietic function and enhance appetite. In addition, it is also rich in carbohydrates and has high heat production, which can enhance the body heat and keep warm.
