Superfood Support for Stress Reduction

Demands. Distractions. Deadlines. Modern life is stressful. We’re all looking for ways to bring our lives into balance.

While we often think of stress as impacting us mentally and emotionally, it physically impacts our bodies in profound ways by kicking our sympathetic nervous system into a “fight-or-flight” response. Our heart rates accelerate, blood pressure rises, muscles tense and blood sugar is released to give us a jolt of energy should we need to flee. It’s easy to see how this unbalances us if we experience stress on a day-to-day basis.

Take a deep breath, there’s good news: you can fight the effects of stress, starting with what you eat. Certain superfoods contain potent minerals and resiliency builders that combat these stress-based side effects.


Minerals aid in the formation of cells and tissues (especially red blood cells, nerve tissue, muscles, bones and teeth), and help with muscle agility and relaxation. Magnesium, for instance, reduces the effects of stress in the body by supporting nerves, blood cells and muscles. And, luckily for you, magnesium is a mainstay in many Navitas Organics superfoods—particularly Cacao. (We told you there was good news!)


Adaptogens have been used for centuries in traditional medicine and are gaining traction in our contemporary world. Found in particular herbs and roots, including the superfood powerhouse Maca, adaptogens support the health of our adrenal systems, which regulate our bodies’ hormonal responses to stress. In addition to helping your body better cope with stress, adaptogens relieve fatigue and promote an increased sense of wellbeing. In fact, adaptogens get their name from being able to assess your body and bring balance in the ways you need it most.
