Foods that Reduce Anxiety

Did you know that what you eat affects your anxiety level?

It’s true.

Research at the College of William and Mary and the University of Maryland showed that people who ate more fermented foods (yogurt, pickles, sauerkraut) exhibited fewer traits of social anxiety and neuroticism.

Got sweaty palms? Pop a pickle.

Does your heart race? Try yogurt for breakfast.

Fermented foods are also known as live-cultured foods. They’re rich in probiotics, otherwise known as the “good gut bacteria.” If you want to increase your intake of these foods, eat more…

The reason for the correlation between live-cultured foods and anxiety is unknown. However, the findings are consistent with earlier research, which showed that mice fed probiotic foods saw an increase in neurotransmitter GABA, which acts like Valium and Xanax.

Once again the old adage “You are what you eat” holds true.

The bottom line is this: try to increase your intake of “good gut bacteria.” It turns out that what’s good for your gut is also good for your feelings.

I had a gut feeling about that.
