5 Stress-Busting Foods

Stressed out? When you’re feeling the crunch, it’s tempting to reach for candy or other unhealthy snacks. But, did you know, certain healthy foods can actually help relieve stress? Next time you’re feeling stressed, try one of these instead:

  1. Avocado and banana
    These two super fruits are packed with potassium, which can help lower blood pressure.

  2. Fatty fish
    Fatty fish, including salmon, sardines and tuna, can help your body regulate adrenaline.

  3. Green tea
    Lower in caffeine than black tea, a warm, soothing cup of green tea can help you calm frazzled nerves.

  4. Nuts
    Nuts like almonds, pistachios and walnuts boost your immune system with vitamins and zinc, which can help you fight stress-related illnesses.

  5. Swiss chard
    This leafy green is loaded with magnesium, which can help regulate cortisol, the body’s stress hormone.
