Better Nutrition to Combat Stress
Combat Stress with Nutrition
While stress often erodes healthy eating patterns, our need for nutrients actually increases when we are stressed! When high demands are placed on the body, there is a more rapid turnover of protein, fat and carbohydrates needed to produce energy. This results in an increased demand for these and other key nutrients—such as vitamin C, B vitamins, magnesium, and zinc—that are used to produce energy.
