Have Anxiety? Here Are Top Five Foods And Drinks That May Help Reduce it


Anxiety disorders can take a toll on you. I have experience serious anxiety attacks in the past. But I was able to get rid of it, completely.

Anxiety typically require medication or psychotherapy or both ( http://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/publications/anxiety-disorders/index.shtml#pub8) — However, balanced diet and a regular exercise routine might not be cures, but they can help improve overall mood and wellbeing. In my case that did the trick.

Also, a number of foods and drinks may help to reduce anxiety. Here are a few of the most well-documented.

Fish:

A study from Ohio State University, students given an omega-3 fatty acid supplement exhibited a 20 percent reduction in anxiety compared to students given a placebo pill.

Chamomile Tea

A small 2009 study found a “modest” improvement of anxiety in people with mild to moderate generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) treated with chamomile extract.

Eggs

Eggs are packed with Vitamin B. The brain needs a wide range of B vitamins to operate optimally. When we’re lacking in the B department, we may experience confusion, irritability and anxiety, among other effects, Psychology Today reported.

Probiotics

A 2011 study, Irish researchers found that feeding a certain probiotic bacterium found in yogurt to mice reduced “behaviors associated with stress, anxiety and depression,” Discover magazine reported.

Green Tea

Green tea is rich in an amino acid called L-theanine, which has been reported to have calming effects in general.  In one study, taking 200 milligrams of L-theanine before a test helped anxiety-prone university students stay calm.
