If you’re stressed, go to your favorite sushi place and order some edamame… That’s the fancy Japanese name for “soybeans in the pod.” You can get them at most grocery stores now too… And research shows they’re ideal for soothing stress. That’s because edamame is loaded with an amino acid called tyrosine, which helps increase the brain’s production of a neurotransmitter associated with producing a feeling of calm. In fact, one study found that a single serving of edamame can lower our stress for at least 2 hours!
