A pandemic, global inflation, a war, job loss, global warming, fluctuating lifestyles, uncertain futures,  I think it’s safe to say, we’re all stressed.

Don’t get me wrong, some stress is good, positive even. When you’re up late at night trying to meet that report deadline, or when you have that big fight with your partner. This type of stress is needed as it helps our bodies manage a ‘dangerous’ situation.

I’m talking about the long term chronic stress. When you have stress that lasts for a long period of time, that’s when the problem begins. Why? Because usually, people who are chronically stressed, are so used to being…chronically stressed, that they don’t realize they’re... chronically stressed.

Therefore, it isn't surprising that people who suffer from hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid) are deficient in selenium, as well as iodine.

Scientific Name: Theobroma Cacao
Alternative Names: Cacao Tree, Cacao Bean, Chocolate Tree

Due to their rich nutrient content, cacao beans are known as the ultimate Amazonian superfood. They are rich in Tryptophan, an essential amino acid, which your body converts into the brain's "happy chemical", serotonin. This can help fight depression and reduce anxiety.

Their rich antioxidant content means that they can help lower your risk of many cancers, diseases and ageing. Did you know that cacao contains 40 times more antioxidants than blueberries?!

Although Mental Health Awareness Month is coming to an end, it doesn't mean the support should end too.

A few weeks ago, we created a Facebook group - Anxiety, Stress & Depression Support & Natural Help. Mental health is usually not taken seriously, or rarely discussed. It scares people. But it shouldn't. It's as much of an illness as anything else...

Your anxiety is lying to you. You are loved & it will be okay.
