Spine, back and legs are connected by ligaments that ensure their optimal operation. Accordingly, a spinal dysfunction can have direct consequences on the back and the legs. This drink made from prunes, dried apricots and figs ensures regeneration of your cells in these body parts and keeps them healthy.
Lack of exercise and sedentary lifestyle – sitting too long – are causes of muscle pain, especially in the back, spine and legs. To remedy this, it is essential to practice regular sporting activities or do specific exercises that activate these various muscle areas. It is also important to adopt a good sitting position.
To prevent or correct these mechanical difficulties naturally in your body, you can make this drink made from three powerful ingredients that help repair tissues and cells.
- 1 dried fig
- 1 dried apricot
- 5 prunes
- A little water
Soak the fruits in warm water for about half an hour. Then place them in a blender together with the water in which they were soaking and blend. Drink immediately, preferably on an empty stomach. Consume this drink regularly to relieve your back pain, spine and legs.
Dried fruits are rich in potassium, magnesium and other minerals which guarantee optimal muscle function. These nutrients also help to quickly recharge your batteries in case of physical or mental effort. Dried fruits are four to five times more nutritious than fresh fruits.
Dried figs are an excellent source of potassium. This nutrient is an electrolyte: it stimulates the transmission of nerve impulses. Potassium also helps maintain the acid-base balance within the cells and control muscle contractions. It provides, in addition, excellent absorption of carbohydrates and proteins.
Potassium deficiency leads to frequent muscle cramps, fatigue and hypokalemia that can lead to more severe and even cardiac muscle crises.
Due to its high content of iron and copper, dried apricot is considered ally of athletes. Iron promotes oxygenation and good blood supply to the muscles, as it contributes to the formation of myoglobin – a protein that carries oxygen to the cells. It also participates in the hemoglobin composition which circulates in the muscle tissue. As for the copper, it intervenes in the rigidity of the musculoskeletal structure.
Dried apricots contain particularly five times more magnesium than fresh apricots. This substance is primarily involved in the metabolic balance. It ensures good oxygenation of the body and relaxation of muscles when they contract. Essential to the regulation of glycemia and the level of blood lipids, this nutrient has, moreover, a sedative action which inhibits spasms.
Magnesium deficiency therefore causes back pain, repetitive contractions in the legs, palpitations and dyspnea (difficulty breathing). Common signs of lack of magnesium are hyperactivity, insomnia, tremor and headache often accompanied by dizziness.
Prunes contain many minerals and phenolic acids that have powerful antioxidant properties. It is shown that regular consumption of prune juice increases the antioxidant power of the body, contributing to effectively preserving the tissues of harmful free radicals.
Their high mineral content ensures proper growth, development and renewal of cells, proper bone formation, and regulation of blood pressure and good oxygenation of the muscles.
Mineral deficiency may, therefore, cause general weakness, demineralization of the bones and muscle and metabolic disorders.
