Feeling stressed a lot? Stress is a state of physical or mental tension and people tend to feel it on a prolonged basis.

You can manage your mental health and well-being with a good diet. 

Leafy vegetables like kale, spinach, and cabbage contain folate which produces dopamine which is a pleasure-inducing brain chemical. 

Blueberries are excellent stress-busting food items, as they are loaded with vitamin C, one of the antioxidants that deal with stress. 

Pistachios can help to reduce acute stress by lowering blood pressure and heart rate.

Carb food items like Oatmeals help release brain chemical serotonin that can boost one’s mood.

Dark Chocolate has flavonoids that help in lowering the stress hormones, including cortisol. 

Antioxidants in it trigger the walls of your blood vessels to lower blood pressure, relax and improve circulation.
