Citrus is high in Vitamin-C which helps reduce the cortisol response and blood pressure. Cortisol is a stress connected hormone that when allowed to get too high for too long will lead to weight gain, compromised immunity and increased risk of being in a chronic state of disease. Jicama is a taproot vegetable with a sweet crisp flavor and texture that is grown in semitropical and tropic parts of the world. Jicama offers a good source of soluble fiber, antioxidants and vitamin-C. And cilantro is a tasty herb that can help reduce inflammation that occurs when the body is under stress.
