3. Nutrition- When your body is under chronic stress or anxiety it becomes out of balance and eventually the endocrine system is affected. These foods naturally calm the nervous system:
Whey: Rich in L-tryptophan and other healing amino acids. Tryptophan has been known to assist in the production of serotonin, a hormone that regulates the nervous system, digestive and blood health.
Containing magnesium, vitamin B6, and other nutrients that promote feelings of happiness and calm inside the body. Eating bananas also aids in the production of serotonin and melatonin, two hormones that regulate mood and sleeping patterns, and promote muscle relaxation and stress relief.
A complex carbohydrate food that contains high levels of vitamin A, vitamin C, and B vitamins, sweet potatoes are another nutritionally-dense food that can help calm your nerves, eliminate stress, and even lower your blood pressure.
Cocoa (Dark Chocolate):
Chocolate contains the bliss ingredient anandamide, loaded with PEA (love chemicals) that has the ability to alter dopamine levels in the brain, causing a sense of peace and relaxation. It also contains magnesium, chromium, iron and manganese all promoting restfulness and a sense of calm.
Sometimes the best way to relieve pressure is to sit and enjoy a cup of hot tea, green tea contains an amino acid known as L-theanine that enhances mood by stimulating the production of alpha waves in the brain. L-theanine also helps reduce stress and promote relaxation naturally.
your body needs a high input of fat-soluble vitamins that contribute to the building up of the fatty layers that protect your nerves from damage. And one such vitamin is vitamin K, which you can get in high amounts by eating spinach. Spinach also helps regulate the production of hormones in the nervous system to improve mood, sleeping patterns, and the body’s response to physical activity and stress.
