Medically reviewed by

Prof Rishi Singhal MBBS, MRCS, FRCS, MD

You can’t avoid stress.

Between work, personal obligations, and everyday life – it’s inevitable!

The truth is stress shouldn’t be taken lightly.

Left untreated, stress can negatively impact your physical and mental health, as well as your weight, blood pressure and immune system.

Are there any natural ways combat stress?

As well as exercising (which promotes relaxation and calmness), eating a healthy diet helps combat stress.

Certain foods contain strong nutrients to help combat stress. Here’s just a few super foods to start incorporating into your diet!

Avocados

In addition to having B vitamins that benefit your nervous system, avocados contain omega-3 fatty acids that help reduce stress levels. As another versatile food, you can add avocado to salads, sandwiches, smoothies and even spread it on toast.

Tea

Tea is a daily staple for a lot of people! Though not a food, it contains amino acids and herbs that boost brain power and relive stress. If you’re feeling tired, chamomile tea can improve sleep quality while green tea can be used calm nerves.

Berries

Berries work as a natural shield to protect our cells from damage.

As your stomach and brain are linked, berries full of fibre and Vitamin C, such as blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries, can support good stomach health and reduce depression, anxiety, and stress.

Dark Leafy Greens

In addition to helping to promote sleep and relaxation, leafy greens like spinach, lettuce, broccoli, and kale are an excellent source of magnesium, Vitamin K, C, and E, as well as fibre.

Aside from being packed with nutrients, these food types are versatile and easy to incorporate into salads and soups.
