When things are not as we wanted, our body reacts quickly: we feel the frustration, heartbeats are stronger, the headaches are more common and the state of malaise seems that never ends! Stop this stressful life, eat the proper food that will help you eliminate the daily stress. Do not forget! You are what you eat! Your body has to fight stress and fatigue, so it’s essential to eat properly. Any fresh fruit is better than an industrial prepared product, as a quick and natural salad is better than one salad cooked “to go”. Rather than frying foods in oil, buy yourself a teflon pan and roast the food, or cook it in the oven. In addition to healthy habits, there are plenty of foods that seem to have been specifically created to keep away the stress! Here are 4 of them.
Honey is an excellent substitute for sugar, however, take care! If you pour it in a very hot liquid, it will change its properties! The average amount of honey that you can eat is about 50 grams, but it is not a problem if once in a while, you eat up to 200 grams. when you feel tired eat one teaspoon of honey, and you should feel reinvigorated.
Blueberries are full of vitamin C and antioxidants, and these things make them a redoubtable opponent of stress. Vitamin C is good for calming the nervous system.
Did you know that blueberries are also called “Green insulin” for diabetes? They are a real help in lowering blood sugar levels.
Broccoli is rich in B vitamins, but contains folic acid too, known by the name of vitamin B9. It has a beneficial influence on the feelings of panic and stress and, moreover, helps maintain heart health, brain and cervix!
Moreover, folic acid is involved in strengthening nails and hair! In his absence, hair grows harder, and nails tend to exfoliate.
Milk is rich in antioxidants, but also in vitamins B1 and B2, calcium and tryptophan.
If somehow you do not know, tryptophan is an essential amino acid that helps to induce sleep naturally, reducing sensitivity to pain, relieve headaches and acts as a natural antidepressant. Start the day with a glass of milk and you will think more clearly, and finish it with another glass of milk, to feel light as a snowflake and to fall asleep easier. And whenever you’re stressed, drink a cup of milk!
