Everyone experiences stress. It’s part of life for many, but if it becomes excessive, stress can increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, cancer and many gastrointestinal disorders. Stress also affects nutrition. When the body is under stress, digestion and absorption of nutrients are impaired.

In that case, we don’t get the full benefit from the nutrition we eat. Stress also negatively affects our immune system and that affects how our bodies fight off viruses, infections and bacteria. If our immune systems are strong we have a better chance of avoiding illness and disease.
