The doorman that makes sure Vitamins C & D are flowing to all the right places in our bodies - without these muscles can’t release built up toxins from stress and can’t unknot and relax.
Omega-3 fatty acids are critical players in the body's inflammation control system.
When we are stressed our bodies go into “fight or flight mode” and start to increase blood flow and tense up to help transport hormones needed to cope with stress. The idea is to move them as quickly through our body as possible, and stop them where they are needed the most.
But, when we are stressed for more than just a few minutes, we keep our blood pressure high and our muscles tense, ultimately causing inflammation which we feel as tight necks, tense shoulders, and aching legs. Our bodies need omega-3 to create chemicals called resolvins and protectins, which are used to put an end to or moderate inflammation, and ultimately muscle tension.
