How simple supplements can help you do so.
Keeping calm and carrying on is never as easy as it sounds. Simply getting through stressful and complicated events without becoming overly fatigued or sick can be quite difficult. Facing such challenges causes both our body and our mind to hyper-rely on the supportive benefits of the circulating nutrients and the vitamins and minerals our body has stored. This stress state depletes our body of these nutrients and requires a greater than usual replenishment. Adding a daily dietary supplement can greatly increase our body’s ability to both cope with stress and to remain calm.
The most helpful dietary supplements in striking this balance include Zinc, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Selenium, and B-12.
Zinc is an excellent supplement that is linked to improved immunity, resistance to infections, improved energy, and reduced fatigue. Zinc is naturally found in protein-rich foods, especially beef, chicken, and seafood.
Vitamin A and Vitamin E play an important role in stress reduction by both fighting the body’s harmful hormonal and biochemical reactions to stress and by inhibiting toxins that make our body feel fatigued. Vitamin A is naturally found in milk, eggs, spinach, carrots, and apricots and vitamin E is naturally found in almonds, mangoes, broccoli, and corn oil. Vitamin A and E when combined with Selenium exhibit greater effectiveness.
Vitamin B-12 is considered one of the top supplements for improved mood and stress management. Vitamin B-12 affects the release of the feel-good hormones called endorphins, which actually make you feel better and promote a calm and euphoric mental state. Natural sources of vitamin B-12 include beef, eggs, cheese, and shellfish.
