Yellow is the colour of the sun and happiness. Visually, yellow immediately conveys a good mood.

Yellow foods are rich in carotenoids and bioflavonoids, which act as antioxidants and protect against various diseases.


Yellow peppers are rich in vitamins C and A, beta-carotene and mineral salts, have antioxidant and toning, diuretic and detoxifying properties and are an ally for a healthy cardiovascular system. Saffron is considered an excellent antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, hepatoprotective, bronchodilator and aphrodisiac.


Yellow tomatoes are rich in substances with high antioxidant activity that reduce and neutralise free radicals. They contain vitamin C, A and B vitamins, are rich in beta-carotene, water, fibre and minerals such as iron, calcium, phosphorus and potassium.


Turmeric is effective against heartburn and intestinal inflammation caused by coeliac disease or Crohn's disease; it prevents type 2 diabetes; it promotes the brain's self-healing powers in depression and Alzheimer's disease.

Lemon juice has disinfecting, thirst-quenching and refreshing properties. It helps purify and thin the blood, makes the arteries more elastic and helps absorb calcium. Due to its astringent and diuretic properties, lemon helps to lose weight and detoxify the body.

Pineapple is an excellent source of manganese and vitamin C. It also provides the body with potassium, copper, calcium, magnesium, beta-carotene, thiamine, B6 and folic acid, as well as soluble and insoluble fibre. Its greatest benefit lies in its content of the enzyme bromelain, which has a draining and anti-inflammatory effect. It also aids protein digestion.


Yellow foods can instantly improve mental well-being and be a panacea for mood! They also improve the health of skin, hair, bones and teeth. They promote the production of collagen, an important anti-ageing component, and balance the body's pH. Yellow foods can also be used topically in skin and hair packs for optimal beauty.
