Everyone gets anxious. Doctors often know how to treat anxiety with medications and therapy, but sometimes the answer could be hiding in what we eat.
We spoke to a health expert, Vanessa Ascencao about foods that help with anxiety, and here is what she said.
Choose food that helps balance blood sugar levels
Eat a whole-food, plant-focussed diet, comprising an abundance of green vegetables and seasonal fruits. Avoid sugar, processed and refined foods. This will naturally help balance blood sugar levels and reduce anxiety. Make meals, salads or smoothies which include spinach, asparagus, nuts, legumes, berries, pumpkin seeds, avocados and almonds as these contain essential nutrients for physical and mental health.
Identify food high in antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids
