We all need to manage our stress effectively to stay healthy and enjoy our life. However, we can’t avoid all stress situations, especially unforeseen ones. Luckily, there are different ways to unstress. From a diet perspective, lots of fruits are our natural weapon against stress.
So how does it work exactly?
If you eat a lot of fruits at a time, your liver can’t process all of it into glucose. In this situation the abundant amount of fructose from fruits (and fruit juices) will be converted in cholesterol. Cholesterol is needed to make cortisol to provide us with energy that we require to deal with our stressors. In this way you help your body react better on stressful circumstances.
However, please remember, a lot of fruits is only a temporary solution for acute stress situations! As on a long term, they will do harm to your body, starting with influence on your blood sugar levels and ending up with a liver damage, joint pain and heart disease.
