Ingredients to boost balance
The feeling of stress is familiar – from to do lists that never end to juggling responsibilities with barely enough time to think about what you’re eating. Stress has many negative impacts on mental and physical wellness, so promoting calm feelings is an important part of how a well-balanced daily diet can help reduce stress and increase wellness. Look for ingredients that contain melatonin, adaptogens, tryptophan, vitamin C, magnesium and Omega-3s in both alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) and fatty fish to provide improved feelings of internal peace and quiet.
Avocados are an anti-anxiety superfood. They’re a great source of magnesium, and are rich in folate and stress-relieving B vitamins. Unlike most fruits, they’re high in monounsaturated fat that helps you feel calm while your brain cells are still moving.
Adaptogen herbs can support your adrenals by managing your hormonal response to stress, helping you ease anxiety and fatigue. Asian mushrooms also contain a significant amount of tryptophan which is converted to melatonin in the body, supporting better sleep.
Superfood cacao is excellent at helping induce relaxation thanks to being one of nature’s most potent sources of magnesium. Magnesium is a powerful mineral that’s instrumental in sleep, and is a natural relaxant that helps deactivate adrenaline.
