Calming foods 

There is evidence to suggest that some herbal remedies may help to lower stress and anxiety, subsequently lowering our stress hormones and making us feel more relaxed.

For example, ashwagandha has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for many years as a natural adaptogen.

Adaptogens are natural plant substances that can help to combat stress and anxiety. A great way to include ashwagandha into your diet is to add it to your tea, coffee or other hot beverage for a soothing and calming effect.

Which nutrients for relaxation?

A small amount of healthy carbohydrates may help to regulate cortisol levels. In fact there is an inverse relationship between cortisol and insulin.

Thus, when cortisol levels are high, insulin levels are low. Consequently, if you eat a small serving of healthy carbohydrates in the evening, this will increase your insulin levels and reduce your cortisol levels. This can help you to feel more relaxed and ready for a night of restful sleep.

For instance, you may want to try eating some brown rice, some sweet potato or quinoa for dinner.
