Stress Nutrients & Supplements

Answered on August 19, 2014

What nutrients, foods, supplements, macronutrient levels, ... improve stress? In other words, what type of paleo diet is optimal for stress levels? I'm thinking about magnesium and vitamin D and a paleo diet with no nuts or small stressors (nightshades etc.), but what else can help?

You need stuff like pulp free OJ and tropical fruits. Apples have too much pectin are only really suitable if cooked, roots and squashes are ok but not as good as fructose/glucose based sugars.

The thing is, cliff : I'm upping my carbohydrate intake more and more through apples, roots, squashes etc. but I see no difference yet.

Sugar

Sucrose ingestion normalizes ADX rats-

"Adrenalectomy (ADX) changes CRF and NE activity in brain, increases ACTH secretion and sympathetic outflow and reduces food intake and weight gain; all of these effects are corrected by administration of adrenal steroids. Unexpectedly, we recently found that ADX rats drinking sucrose, but not saccharin, also have normal caloric intake, metabolism, and ACTH. Here, we show that ADX (but not sham-ADX) rats prefer to consume significantly more sucrose than saccharin. Voluntary ingestion of sucrose restores CRF and dopamine-beta-hydroxylase messenger RNA expression in brain, food intake, and caloric efficiency and fat deposition, circulating triglyceride, leptin, and insulin to normal. Our results suggest that the brains of ADX rats, cued by sucrose energy (but not by nonnutritive saccharin) maintain normal activity in systems that regulate neuroendocrine (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal), behavioral (feeding), and metabolic functions (fat deposition)."
