Stress-fighting foods

03.28.10 07:01 PM

Many people eat when theyíre stressed. But there are certain foods that can actually help reduce stress and help individuals stay healthier by avoiding stress-induced health problems such as hypertension, heart disease, stomach problems and obesity.

Foods high in folic acid such as asparagus, help the brain produce the chemical serotonin, which is a mood stabilizer.

Experts say foods high in antioxidants including vitamins C and E, as well as the mineral selenium can repair damage to cells caused by stress. Citrus fruits, berries and nuts are all known for being high in antioxidants.

Foods high in omega-3 fatty acids may also be beneficial for fighting stress. Experts say packing a tuna sandwich for lunch on particularly stressful days can help avoid stress and depression.

EMaxHealth.com suggests eating oatmeal as a healthy carbohydrate to fuels the brainís production of serotonin. Putting milk on your oatmeal also fights stress since because foods high in calcium can reduce muscle spasms and soothe tension.

Nutritional supplements containing these stress-busting vitamins can also help individuals who donít get enough from food sources.

And, exercise, meditation and deep breathing exercises may also help keep you healthy and stress-free.
