Especially in spring many suffer under tiredness, fatigue, exhaustion and listlessness. Our body has to get used again to warmer days and longer sunshine. The conversion of the hormones serotonin and melatonin might lead to sleep disturbances and sleeplessness. Additionally, the limited intake of vitamins and minerals during winter supports lack of power. This has to be balanced. Our hint: Green smoothies fight sleep disturbances.
