Nature’s Stress Relievers

Here are a few foods and drinks that may help ease some of that tension:



  • The omega-3 fatty acids may help moderate stress hormones and risks for depression


Dark Chocolate

  • May help lower blood pressure and stress hormones


Black Tea

  • Studies showed that drinking tea daily lowered the stress hormone cortisol and increased relaxation



  • Contains potassium and monounsaturated fatty acids, both of which lower blood pressure.  As above, the fatty acids help with depression; believed to help the brain absorb serotonin, mood-booster


Crunchy Foods

  • Like celery and carrot sticks can help relax a tense jaw and tension


  • Contains calcium which may help ease anxiety and mood swings

                We will continue to pursue “stress relievers” because Lord knows we have enough of it!
