A slight muscle weakness can occur in different occasions, such as after an intense physical activity, during the many hours in the office, during the recovery from the flu or the change of season.
A #healthy #lifestyle and some foods can help reduce the symptoms of muscle weakness.
Eating a handful of nuts a day may help to give you energy and vital nutrients such as magnesium, sodium, potassium, calcium, iron and protein. In particular, magnesium plays a fundamental role in over 300 biochemical reactions occurring in the organism, including also several functions relating to muscle. A magnesium deficiency can therefore cause WEAKNESS.
Among the dried fruit particularly rich in magnesium are nuts, walnuts, almonds, cashews, peanuts, and pine nuts. Attention to calories.
Spinach can meet the direct energy losses, mainly due to iron deficiency. Other foods rich in magnesium, such as brown rice, lentils, bananas, peaches, peppers. In this way it is possible to regulate the digestive system, nervous system and muscle tone.

Coffee contains the well-known caffeine, while tea contains the protein and the chocolatme has in itself theobromine, which in percentages and in different modulation are more or less potent in the activation of the nervous system.
The effects of nerve agents and foods of these substances are:
* Activation of adrenaline and noradrenaline (the body is ready to answer to attack or flee);
