Looking for food to relieve anxiety? Research shows that some foods calm us down, while others can be stimulating, at least temporarily. If you are feeling stressed, causing anxiety, or a panic attack, certain adjustments to your diet can help and relieve anxiety.
Stress describes many of the needs and stresses that we all experience every day. Essentially, stress can be physical, mental, emotional or chemical. Anything you experience can cause stress.
Anxiety is a sign or symptom of stress. Often, the anxiety, boredom and struggle caused every day is always the cause of the anxiety, not a catastrophe or a catastrophe in life. For example, listening to the phone ring constantly, listening to a newborn baby cry or worrying about paying their bills can be stressful, which can lead to anxiety.
When you are anxious for days or weeks, it is called chronic anxiety. The problem with chronic anxiety is that it can lead to long-term health problems. While there is no quick fix, you can fight the destructive effects by eating or increasing or reducing certain chemicals in your body.
According to the Mayo Clinic, your diet does not cure anxiety. But some foods can relieve anxiety and have a calming effect, while others cause anxiety after eating.
Here are some suggestions:
To improve your mood, consider adding the following to your diet:
Also, consider adding zinc-rich foods to your diet. The results suggest that oysters, cashews, liver, beef, and egg yolk are associated with reduced anxiety.
In addition, a study published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research in August 2015 found a link between probiotic foods and the reduction of social anxiety. Probiotic foods include kimchi, sauerkraut and kefir. A new study published in the Annals of General Psychiatry in 2017 linked probiotics to improving symptoms of major depression, perhaps by reducing inflammation in the body or by increasing serotonin (a chemical that calms the brain). Anxiety can be linked to depression.
Check out the five foods below that you may want to add to your diet to improve your mood, and the four foods that can increase stress and even cause depression, so you can avoid them.
