What Real Foods Can Help Fight Stress!? Did You Know STRESSED is DESSERTS Spelled Backwards!!
    .......
      As we're approaching mid way through February ( which is crazy), I think about simple ways to manage stress levels, especially as we're back in half Quarantine & work is a bit stressful 😮
        .......
          What's your go-to for stress relief!? I mean I love yoga and walks but certain foods have functional benefits that can actually help reduce stress, strengthen immune system, reduce blood pressure & stabilize mood! Here are some of my top picks. Which ones you are going to add in?
            .........
              🍅Vitamin C: Intake of this vitamin can help lower levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) and decrease blood pressure during times of anxiety and stress.
                ........
                  🌰Magnesium:There are over 600 metabolic functions in our body, which requires magnesium! Nearly 50% of Americans don’t consume enough magnesium, a mineral involved in stabilizing blood sugar levels, DNA repair, stress reduction and decreasing inflammation, especially in the brain. Magnesium does get flushed out of the body when you’re in a stressed state, so it’s critical to get enough each day.
                    ..........
                      🍳Zinc: Another mineral needed for overall physical and mental health. It plays a vital role in helping the body fight off stress, as well as, an aid in the production of serotonin (a brain chemical that creates a feeling of calmness).
                        ........
                          🥩B-Vitamins: Stress depletes our B vitamin stores so we must get these daily. These vitamins keep the brain healthy and help handle the fight-or-flight response.
                            .........
                              🐟Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Comes from both animal & plant sources. This fatty acid has been shown to reduce stress hormones and also help protect the body against many health conditions.
