Start Your Day With the Best Possible Breakfast
“Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper.” (Adelle Davis, 1904 – 1974)
This time-honoured wisdom shows that breakfast has long been regarded as the most important meal of the day. The body needs the vital boost that breakfast provides to jump-start after many hours of rest.
Studies have indicated that people who eat breakfast regularly perform better physically and mentally than people who skip it. One long-term study demonstrated that children’s breakfast habits impact their health into adulthood. According to these studies, people who enjoy a good breakfast suffer less from metabolic syndrome (a condition which increases the risk of cardiac infarction, strokes, and high blood pressure).
So what is a good and healthy breakfast?
“Many families consume only empty calories in the morning – white flour products, too much salt, and massive amounts of sugar provide our bodies with anything but strength,” says German biochemist Dr.h.c. P. Jentschura. After a long night’s sleep, the body’s energy and nutrient stores are empty and must be refilled; otherwise, a person’s concentration and performance levels decline quickly.
This is particularly true with children – their rapid growth and exuberant activity levels require a breakfast packed with energy and nutrients. If children, athletes, and hard-working people miss out on this or eat an unhealthy breakfast, the consequences become apparent much faster than with sedentary adults or office workers – they more easily become fidgety, lose concentration, fatigue earlier, and generally tend to be more prone to getting sick.
What kind of breakfast?
A perfect start to the day is a breakfast rich in vitamins, minerals, nutrients, trace elements, and fibre. With this in mind, Dr. Jentschura developed MorgenStund’, a specially formulated, energy-packed, lactose- and gluten-free porridge. Featuring organic millet, buckwheat, fruits, oil seeds, and amaranth, MorgenStund’ porridge not only helps boost morning metabolism, it also enhances performance and endurance, and supports a strong immune system. This power breakfast will energize you for hours, and it can satiate your cravings since it is loaded with real nutrients.
Since mornings are a busy time, MorgenStund’ is designed to be ready to eat in 5 minutes – just mix with hot water, add whatever toppings you like, and enjoy!
Remember to hydrate!
It is also important to replenish fluids in the morning. Whether you enjoy water, tea, or vegetable juices, a regular and sufficient fluid intake ensures that your blood volume does not diminish, and your gray matter, muscles and organs are fed a consistent flow of oxygen-rich nutrients.
