It has been long time since i did not write and posted new articles and recipes because the MomoFood+Design is becoming a blog soon.
On the clean nutrition journal by ONFITNESS , i will share with you the “Anti-stress nutrition:
Complex carbohydrates: those on low carb diets or Paleo diets may find their stress levels higher. Why? Because complex carbohydrates are precursors to serotonin and dopamine neurotransmitters. A person low on these important carbohydrate containing foods will find the body can go into Ketosis an acidic state known in to accompany higher levels of oxidative stress and psychological stress.
Increasing the consumption of carbohydrates such as whole baked potatoes, brown rice and other whole grains often makes a big difference in a person:s stress levels.
Magnesium: this mineral is needed for nerve impulse transmission, as magnesium increases neurotransmitter release . It”s also helpful for REM sleep. This was shown in a 2010 study from the United States Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service, which studied 100 adults who had poor sleep quality. The study found that magnesium supplementation resulted in better sleep and lower chronic inflammation.
Foods high in magnesium include pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, cashews and flax, leafy greens like spinach and kale, beans and lentils, brown rice and other grains, avocados, bananas, figs and other dried fruits.
Vitamin C: a study of 52 elderly patients from Canada’s McGill University, working with the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal, found that 500 milligrams of vitamin C significantly increased moods and decreased oxidative stress among the patients. Foods high in vitamin C include citrus and most othewr fruits, tomatoes and many leafy greens.
