Under stress, the body undergoes chemical changes that help it “kill prey” or “escape from a predator.” But such defensive reactions can arise not only in case of obvious danger, but also due to fear of public speaking, conflict with a colleague or relative, and any other situations that we perceive as social threats. Learning to manage your stress levels is important, as chronic stress negatively affects your health.
When a person does not know how to cope with stress, he may stay awake at night, overeat, or, conversely, starve. All this does not reflect in the best way on emotional and physical health. To minimize the harmful effects of stress on the body, you need to strengthen it, and vitamin D, magnesium and omega-3 fatty acids will help in this.
Vitamin D relieves anxiety and depression
Vitamin D can be produced by the human body on its own when the skin is exposed to sunlight. It is important not to allow a deficiency of this trace element, because in childhood it is fraught with an increase in blood pressure, and in adults it can provoke the development of serious diseases, including oncology.

Vitamin D is also needed for emotional health, improved calcium absorption, and bone development. The optimal daily intake of this trace element for an adult is 60-80 ng / ml. You can get the right amount of vitamin by taking special supplements.
Important! When taking a vitamin D3 supplement, be sure to take vitamin K2 to reduce the likelihood of developing atherosclerosis.
Magnesium improves mood and nervous system function
Magnesium is essential for the health of every cell in the body. A lack of this mineral can cause a number of unpleasant symptoms:
- high blood pressure;
- muscle spasms;
- sleep disturbance.
In a state of stress, the body consumes more magnesium, so it is important to replenish the lack of this mineral in time. This can be done by making dietary adjustments to include magnesium-rich foods (avocados, seeds, nuts, herbs) in the diet. You can also take magnesium supplements.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids Help Deal With Anxiety
Polyunsaturated fatty acids are essential for healthy skin, hair and nervous system. It has been shown that low levels of omega-3 acids in the body are often caused by anxiety or depression. For greater stress resistance, it is recommended to take vitamin supplements with Omega-3.
Before using any nutritional supplements, it is important to consult with your doctor and undergo an examination to find out which minerals and vitamins your body lacks. Published by econet.ru.
