Eat to beat stress

Eat to beat stress: Image 1 Living life in the fast lane can often take its toll before we've even realised. But just like a car needs fuel, we need the proper nutrients to keep our body, and mind, in top condition. Stress is inevitable in today's fast-paced society, but with these six superfoods, you can be sure that your body is ready to face whatever challenge comes your way:

1. Eggs
Rich in protein, iron and vitamin B12, eggs are perfect to help boost your energy levels and the health of your nervous system during stressful times. They also provide essential amino acids that are vital for repairing any damage caused due to stress.

2. Pumpkin Seeds
Packed with magnesium these small yet powerful seeds are the perfect way to enhance your energy levels and ensure the normal functioning of our adrenal hormones. Magnesium can also help if you're suffering from poor sleep as a result of your stress. If you don't think you are getting enough magnesium through diet alone, try New Era 8 a 'fast-melt' magnesium supplement (£8.49 from www.powerhealth.co.uk ).

3. Berries
Vitamin C is very important for the production of adrenal hormones that support our body's ability to manage stress. This vital vitamin can be found in berries such as blackberries, strawberries and raspberries as well as in kale, broccoli and cabbage.

4. Pulses
Foods such as lentils and chickpeas are rich in Vitamin B which is vital for energy production and a normal functioning system. Vitamin B5 is especially helpful in controlling hormones in the adrenals such as cortisol and can be found naturally in chicken liver, sun flower seeds and salmon.

5. Chlorella
Micro algae such as chlorella provide a wide variety of nutrients and are easily absorbed as they need little processing by the digestive system. Chlorella can be taken in a powdered form and can be found in ReJuvenate, a new, nutritious greens formula which combines a raw blend of organic greens, vegetables, and fruits - including chlorella (£33.75 from www.water-for-health.co.uk).

6. Fermented Foods
The fermentation process produces numerous strains of beneficial bacteria that have an active role in our digestion as well as the production of the all-important Vitamin B. A healthy gut flora promotes a healthy immune system which will ensure your body is protected from infections and illnesses, even when you're stressed out.
