Yes, it’s never pleasant to feel the heart beating wildly in your chest, that sweat which comes out profusely from your skin, to have those worrying thoughts hammering to your brain.

Either you experience subtle signs of anxiety or you are struggling with an anxiety disorder, you can reap awesome benefits when you fuel your body with the right kind of food.

Recent research found that foods naturally rich in magnesium may help a person to feel calmer. Examples include leafy greens, such as spinach and Swiss chard.

Other sources include legumes, nuts, seeds, and whole grains. Foods rich in zinc such as oysters, cashews, liver, beef, and egg yolks have been linked to lowered anxiety.

Some studies found that omega-3s may help reduce anxiety. There is also a link between probiotic foods and a lowering of social anxiety.

Eating probiotic-rich foods such as pickles, sauerkraut, and kefir was linked with fewer symptoms.
