What is cortisol?
Cortisol is present in your body when in situations of danger. When cortisol levels are high, excess glucose is released into the body. This results in more fat storage and weight gain, notably around the stomach!
Why are smoothies so good in combating stress?
As smoothies are healthy and delicious, your body loves them when you drink smoothies. The foam contains fibers 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 lesser energy to digest it, your total calorie intake is lesser too. In a way, this minimises the innate tension your body is going through when digesting solid food.
How about a cup of coffee?
There are some evidence suggesting coffee is beneficial to anti-stress. But it does not have the same level of nutrients smoothies can provide you. So while you can, do grab some yummy smoothies. Next you will see what a distinction that gives to your day.
