Product Description

Friend or family member going through a difficult, stressful time? Our Stress Relief Basket can help. Foods containing B vitamins (niacin, thiamin, riboflavin, B6, biotin, pantothenic acid, B12, folic acid), tryptophan, calcium, magnesium, and alpha-linolenic acid (an essential omega-3 fatty acid) can help the body and mind cope during stress, and we've chosen some of the most delicious sources for our gift baskets!

Niacin, along with other B vitamins, is required by the body when coping with stress. Niacin helps maintain proper nervous system function and helps the body release energy from carbohydrates. Thiamin is beneficial during stress because it facilitates neurotransmitter synthesis, promotes healthy nerve function, and converts carbohydrates in foods into energy. Our thiamin sources include oatmeal and salmon. Riboflavin is beneficial during stress because it converts other B vitamins to useful forms so that they can perform their functions.

Vitamin B6 helps the body to manufacture neurotransmitters essential for the body to cope with stress. Vitamin B6 may also help boost the immune system during stressful times. The smoked salmon provides vitamin B6.

Vitamin B12, found in oysters, helps the body to cope with stress because it works in conjuction with other B vitamins. It assists the body in converting food to energy and supports the nervous system.

Calcium is needed for normal communication among nerve cells and for muscle contraction, both vital in supporting the body during stress. Some research indicates that dietary calcium may help lower blood pressure, which can be raised during times of stress.

Magnesium may be beneficial during stress because it helps muscles to relax. Food sources include are dark chocolate and almonds.
