5 Juice Recipes to Fight Fall Fatigue

If you've been feeling tired, sad, and under the weather lately, you might be dealing with fall fatigue. It’s common during the shift from summer to autumn and can be alleviated with the help of the following 5 revitalizing juice recipes.

During the shift from summer to autumn, you might observe a decline in your health, both physically and emotionally. This phenomenon can be attributed to "fall fatigue," which is a subset of seasonal affective disorder (SAD), commonly recognized as seasonal depression.

Fall fatigue primarily arises from reduced sun exposure in the autumn months due to earlier sunsets, later sunrises, and cloudy weather. This increased exposure to darkness prompts our bodies to produce more melatonin, leading to feelings of fatigue.

Fatigue is not the only symptom of fall fatigue. Other fall fatigue symptoms are low mood, a weakened immune system, heightened stress and anxiety, and brain fog; the interplay of these fall fatigue symptoms can contribute to a tired and dull appearance.

In response, we've curated 5 juice recipes designed to combat the effects of fall fatigue and boost overall well-being.

  2. Inflammation Fighter Elixir Recipe
