If you want to get your back happy, healthy foods are one way to make that happen.
There are many ways to manage and reduce stress levels. And your diet and nutrition choices can have a very powerful effect on whether those levels go up or down.
Certain foods provide comfort and actually increase levels of hormones in the body that naturally fight stress. The right food can also help relieve stress by lowering the levels of hormones that trigger it.
