Second one is apple; stress can lead to craving for sugar and carbohydrates. Apples are remarkably rich in fiber and phyto-chemicals and are easily digested. The phyto-chemicals present in apples have a wide range of health benefits. More importantly, they stabilize the blood sugar levels, keeping up energy levels.
Next on the list are bananas. This fruit is full of nutrients including potassium and magnesium. Adding bananas to the diet helps the brain to release serotonin and melatonin, as well as providing muscle relaxation and relief from stress. It's a myth that bananas are fattening; they are just slightly higher in energy when compared to other fruits.
Milk is another super food. Stress may lower your level of serotonin - one of body’s critical chemicals that help us stay calm. Milk contains a special kind of protein that helps in raising the levels of serotonin by 43 percent. The calcium present in the milk eases the body tension and anxiety caused by stress.
Last, but not the least are nuts. Magnesium found in nuts and seeds, is known for its soothing effect on the nervous system. Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc and they are great source for combating lethargy. Walnuts will replenish your stress depleted vitamin B, groundnuts will give you required zinc and almonds will boost your vitamin E. These nutritious snacks are also good for your heart.
So, with the help of these super foods de-stress and keep cool. Along with this smart diet, dieticians, according to Indiainteracts, suggest a moderate work out and meditation for better effect.
