As all woman entrepreneurs and business women you are probably experiencing stress every day.
And it does not get better by knowing that this stress is doing real damage to your health causing all sorts of diseases.
Unfortunately, it is also one of the quickest ways to let your body and mind age.
Thankfully there are some nutrients that help you combat that stress …
In times of stress this vitamin gets depleted in the body making it more difficult to regulate your adrenal function and your stress hormone cortisol.
You find Vitamin B5 for instance in liver, kidney, egg yolk, chicken and fish. And if you are looking for a plant-based version, eat bananas, avocados, dark green leafy vegetables and baked potatoes.
This is another vitamin that gets quickly depleted in the body when you are experiencing stress. Filling up those stores helps to reduce the stress hormone cortisol and reduces high blood pressure. All this in addition to the general boost to your immune system and many other health benefits.
Enjoy papaya, bell peppers (especially the yellow ones), broccoli, brussels sprouts, strawberries, and pineapple.
Yet another mineral that your body urgently needs for many biochemical processes in the body but that gets depleted by stress. Unfortunately, it is also deficient in most of our diets.
You can primarily find magnesium in seaweed, pumpkin seeds, cocoa, spinach, swiss chard, soybeans, sesame seeds and quinoa.
Unfortunately, it would be hard for you to eat enough of them every day to reach the level you need. So, you might want to think about supplements.
An alternative I love is magnesium oil that I use to spray on my belly from where it gets absorbed quickly and easily without having to go through my digestive system.
