Reduce Pressure by Food

Tuesday, November 2, 2010

Anxiety, stress and fatigue are mostly caused by psychological pressure. If we don't reduce the pressure in time, it affects not only our health, but also our work efficiency and quality of life. There are many ways to relieve the pressure and one effective way is by food.

Alkaline food dispels the fatigue
When people in fatigue, acidic materials increase in their bodies which aggravates the fatigue. And thus, such people need to eat alkaline food to attain acid-base balance and ease physical and psychological pressure. Generally speaking, whatever contains high calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium, and metabolized into basic materials is alkaline food, such as kelp, spinach, carrots, and celery. Fruit which tastes sour is metabolized into basic materials, and thus it belongs to alkaline food, such as watermelon. If people eat acid food, such as lobster, chicken, duck, beef, pork, etc, they should limit portion sizes so as not to break acid-base balance.
