Eat this to combat stress

Salmon for dinner will combat stress.

 

Individuals experience stress in many unique ways. When you're stressed, it can ratchet up anxiety hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol which have lots of positives, but chronically released are not good for your health. "The omega-3 fatty acids in salmon have anti-inflammatory properties that may help counteract the negative effects of stress hormones," says Lisa Cimperman, RD, of the University Hospitals Case Medical Center and a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. In a study funded by the National Institutes of Health, Oregon State University medical students who took omega-3 supplements had a 20% reduction in anxiety compared to the group given placebo pills. One 3-ounce serving of cooked wild salmon can have more than 2,000 milligrams of omega-3s, double the daily intake recommended by the American Heart Association for people with heart disease.
