Has it ever happened that you’re under a lot of pressure and have a cup of coffee only to feel more jittery?

As it turns out, there is a direct link between what we eat and how we feel. Some foods—like the ones that have caffeine content and or high in sugar—can induce stress and anxiety. On the other hand, there are, what Ayurveda calls satvik foods, that makes us feel calm and relaxed.

So if you find yourself to be perpetually stressed, then try these Ayurvedic foods that can soothe the body and mind:

1. Ashwagandha
Ashwagandha’s properties that keep our blood pressure and blood sugar at optimum levels are well documented. But this herb also helps you feel calmer and beat stress. Available in tablet form, you can have it every single day, no matter how old you are.
