Capricorn Health Tips
Among the stars, Capricorn natives are known for their good health and longevity! The key body parts for Capricorns include the knees and the Skeletal system. For this reason, it is important for Capricorns to take diligent care of their teeth, knees, and joints. This is especially important when exercising because knees and joints are more prone to injury during this time. Additionally, it’s important to note that our knees represent our ability to move our physical body forward! On an energetic level, if we are feeling blocked or trapped in a particular situation, this can manifest as pain in the knees. Essentially, our mental blocks become physical ones! As our Capricorn friends are one of the most driven signs, they can become more quickly frustrated when events do not go as planned. This is why they must take special note of how those knees are feeling!
Balance is key for the Capricorn belly! Maintaining a healthy and consistent diet, full of lots of healthy protein and calcium is ideal for Capricorn souls. Because Capricorns have a tendency to be “All or Nothing” kind of people, it is particularly helpful for Capricorns to be mindful of how quickly they eat and portioning of their meals! After working hard all day, Capricorns might have a tendency to skip a meal or two and end the day quite ravenous. Being mindful of this tendency can help to keep a balanced diet.
The Capricorn Cell Salt: Calcium Phosphate
Because the ruling system for Capricorns is the skeletal system, calcium is an especially important nutrient for native under this sign. The cell salt (a mineral compound that is essential for optimum cell functioning) for Capricorns is calcium phosphate. Calcium phosphate helps the body by strengthening teeth, bones and connective tissue – making it a great boost for Capricorn health! Some foods that naturally contain calcium phosphate include; beans, broccoli, yogurt, oranges, figs and leafy greens!
Superfoods Company Capricorn Product
For our Capricorn natives out there, we recommend Super Amazing Coffee! We think this is the perfect addition to the Capricorn daily ritual as it helps to support productivity, encourage a happy mood, and helps curb pesky and unwanted cravings. These key ingredients will help show why Super Amazing Coffee is the perfect choice for Capricorn natives.
Oh, shiitake mushrooms, they are one of my personal favorite ingredients! Shiitake mushrooms really are a wonderful ingredient to add to any daily health routine. These mighty mushrooms are jam packed with nutrients that support a healthy heart, cognitive function and may even support bone health! Because shiitake mushrooms are also anti-inflammatory agents, they are beneficial for soothing tender Capricorn knees and connective skeletal tissue!
While our Capricorn natives are ultra-productive and organized, they have a tendency to feel stressed as a result of working just a little too hard or being a little too serious. Not to worry though, Maca root is the perfect ingredient to help resolve this issue! Maca is an adaptogenic herb, which means it has the ability to help regulate the endocrine system. A balanced endocrine system is vital to keep our stress levels under control making Maca, a fantastic fit for Capricorn natives. Not only this, but Maca also supports learning and cognition! This makes Maca the perfect partner for Capricorns as they level up their goals!
Turmeric is a brightly colored spice that is chock-full of antioxidants! Not to mention, this canary yellow root can help boost mood and cognitive function. Like Shiitake mushrooms, turmeric is fabulous for reducing inflammation in the body and supports general immunity. Turmeric will help Capricorn natives stay healthy as can be while they accomplish all their big dreams!
