Healthy Food is Best Way to Fight Stress And Anxiety
We live in a busy working society in which requirements are immense. Most people demand swift turnaround for you to handle their askings. And you work your socks off to satisfy tight deadline. As a result, tension starts to build up within you. Work tension is the greatest culprit amongst all types of stress.
That is the reason why it is important we find out how to destress well. One amazing way to destress is to put nutritious food that your stressed body is yearning for.
When it comes to food that destress, there is no better alternative than the healthy smoothie. With these vitamin-packed stress-busting smoothies you will feel your cortisol level diminishing.
What is cortisol?
Cortisol exists in your body when in situations of threat. When cortisol levels are high, excess blood sugar is unleashed into the body. This results in more fat storage and weight increase, especially around the midsection!
Why are smoothies so good in fighting stress?
As smoothies are nutritious and delicious, your body likes them when you drink smoothies. The foam contains fibres and nutrients that are not in solid form. This means your digestion system will not need more time to break it down. Since you need much less energy to digest it, your total calorie consumption is lesser too. In such a way, this minimises the internal stress your body is going through when digesting solid food.
How about a cup of coffee?
There are some evidence explaining coffee is useful to anti-stress. But it does not have the same level of nutrients smoothies can supply you. So while you can, do pick up some yummy smoothies. Next you will see what an improvement that gives to your day.
Hence, it is a fact that smoothies are certainly the key to the mind. Today let’s have a juice recipe that helps you to lower the built-up stress in your weary body. As the calorie is low, this smoothie is also fantastic for those who wish to slim down.
