Stress is at an all-time high in the world right now, and specifically in America. In fact, according to the latest statistics, at least 87% of Americans are feeling increased levels of stress in their day-to-day lives (Daily Life, 2022). The worst part is that you might be stressed and don’t even know it because your body is used to chronically stressed living (Ben Greefield, 2020). While there are many ways to combat stress and its harmful effects on our bodies and life, I would like to introduce you to three foods that help fight stress. I’ll also link you to an article with even more foods that can help battle the harmful levels of cortisol (that hormone that activates the fight or flight response in your body that in abundance, can lead to all sorts of illnesses).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blueberries 😀

Not only are they delicious and a great source of fiber, but blueberries are also rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients, which help your body’s response to stress.

Seaweed 🌿

Iodine is an essential mineral for the body, and seaweed is one of the best sources for it. Iodine deficiency can trigger fatigue and depression, and 1 cup of seaweed can pack 275% of the daily value! 

Oysters 🎣

You may have heard that oysters are an aphrodisiac, but did you know that they’re rich in zinc? Zinc is an antioxidant that strengthens the immune system, has anti-inflammatory properties, and improves the body’s response to stress.

Bonus:
Magnesium Breakthrough Capsules 😎
Magnesium Breakthrough Capsules* contain 7 natural forms of Magnesium, which help the body and mind relax without drowsiness. Magnesium, a key ingredient, is vital to the body’s well-being as it is involved in over 600 biochemical reactions, most notably the regulation of neurotransmitters. Use my code PGTIP to save 10%.
