Goodbye to Stress Via a Sensible Diet
Welcome back to Goodbye to Stress series and today we will discuss "How diet plays a part in Stress" In the previous articles we have focused on the mind in context to perception and beliefs and now we will look at a different and equally important facet to deal with stress. Diets play a large part in building a healthy, strong and vibrant body and thus promoting good brain functions so you feel strong, fit, calm and confident and able to handle stress with ease. Amino Acids - Medical research from M.D's Eric Braverman and Andrew Weil has revealed that amino acids are vital in relation to stress reactions. It has been identified that Tyrosine amino acid is a major component to help physiologically to cope with stress. It is often called the "stress amino acid". It helps to generate thyroxin and melanin and with vitamin B6 is shown to aid the thyroid gland that manages metabolism. Serotonin is a hormone that keeps our mood harmonious and it is nicknamed the happy hormone. Serotonin is produced in the brain from the amino acid tryptophan with the aid of certain B vitamins.
