The general principle of a healthy diet in winter is to conform to the hidden potential of yang in the body, based on the convergence of yang and yin, to reduce the saltiness and increase the bitterness, to nourish the heart. During the winter solstice, the cold has arrived and the body s metabolism is relatively low. At this time, it mainly depends on the kidneys to function. The stronger the kidneys are, the stronger the vitality. Therefore, the diet should also be based on nourishing the kidneys . Since ancient times, the winter solstice has been the best tonic season, which can strengthen the body s ability to resist cold and external evils. Therefore, in terms of dietary choices, you can choose beef, lamb, dog meat, etc. to nourish the viscera, and you can choose more spicy foods such as pepper, chili, ginger, garlic, etc. in the condiment. Here, I would like to recommend to you several kinds of dietary supplements for the winter solstice season. You can choose according to your physique.
