Nerve food: With these tricks to more balance

Not hearing the alarm clock, missing the train or a fight between the children. Many people's nerves are already on edge in the morning. And then many reach for chocolate and the like. At the time, it sounds like a good decision, but this joy is usually not long-lasting. Because shortly after the sugar high comes a low, you are tired and lack energy. In such moments, it is important to know which substances are good for your body and which nerve food you should resort to.

Basis of a good diet: micronutrients

Not a new tip, but a very important one: A balanced and varied diet is the basis for strong nerves. Energy lows should be avoided, the brain and the body should be supplied with energy in the long term. The three macronutrients are important for this: protein, fat and carbohydrates. They are the basis of all metabolic processes and thus essential for life. 

Carbohydrates: Our main source of energy

Our body gets most of its energy from carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are stored in the so-called glycogen stores. These are located in the muscles and in the liver. When the stores are sufficiently filled, they provide a steady energy level. Carbohydrates are divided into simple and complex carbohydrates, with the latter providing more benefits to the body. You can get good carbohydrates from whole grain products, oatmeal or potatoes, for example. Especially people who engage in heavy physical activity should pay attention to a sufficient supply of carbohydrates to ensure a steady supply of energy. 

Proteins: Building material of our body

Proteins are made up of many building blocks called amino acids. 21 different amino acids are used for the formation of proteins, some of which cannot be formed by the body itself and must be ingested through food (essential amino acids). Proteins are important for various tasks in the body, for example the building of cells, the defense against foreign substances or muscle movement. Good sources of protein are, for example, legumes, lean meats or dairy products such as low-fat curd cheese. 

Fats: flavor carrier and energy supplier

Not only the quantity is decisive, but also which fats we consume. There are saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids. The intake of unsaturated fatty acids is recommended, saturated fatty acids should rather be avoided. Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids also play an important role in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. In order to get enough healthy fats, you should regularly eat nuts, salmon, avocado or healthy oils such as olive oil. 

Reduce your stress level with these foods

These foods provide you and your body with the important nutrients so that your nerves are strengthened and you can keep a clear head even in stressful situations.
