There are several causes of anxiety and fear. Internal and external influences can cause them. To better control and perhaps avoid anxiety, you can use natural methods: nutritional strategies for balanced blood sugar levels. We have provided you with a list of nine foods and substances that will help you with anxiety.
From omega 3 fatty acids, such as nuts
Foods rich in omega 3, such as nuts (especially walnuts), seeds, sardines, and salmon, reduce the level of inflammation and anxiety.
Fatty acid, a fatty acid contained in ghee
Fatty acid from ghee and butter is a short-chain fatty acid that plays a major role in gut health. Ghee has anti-inflammatory properties, a tonic effect on the brain, and heals the intestines. The unhealthy gastrointestinal tract is associated with depression, anxiety, and weakened immunity.
Foods such as sweet potatoes, brown rice, quinoa, beans and lentils are rich in fiber and your body knows how to metabolize them. It’s best to consume complex carbohydrates in combination with protein and healthy fats.
From zinc, such as sesame and pumpkin seeds
Zinc plays a major role in our immune and nervous system. Stress and anxiety reduce zinc levels in the body. Zinc-rich foods include sesame seeds, lentils, pumpkin seeds, emmental cheese, peanuts, Brazilian nuts, oatmeal, corn, oysters, and beef.
Vitamin B12, such as cheese and meat
Cheese with a high vitamin B12 content is important for a balanced diet. Vitamin B12 has a calming effect and promotes brain performance. Animal foods such as fish and meat are the best sources of vitamin B12. In addition, cottage cheese, emmental cheese, and Camembert cheese contain enough vitamin B12. Vegans and vegetarians can help with capsules.
For magnesium, especially green vegetables
Magnesium from green vegetables makes you healthy and vibrant. Magnesium deficiency can cause anxiety. The body uses magnesium in over 300 different biochemical reactions, including the release of neurotransmitters and nerve function. Green leafy vegetables, pumpkin seeds, almonds, avocados and dark chocolate contain magnesium and we want to add them to our menu more often.
Tryptophan from oatmeal
Oatmeal contains tryptophan, a precursor of serotonin and melatonin. It is also rich in B vitamins and dietary fiber. When combined with healthy fats and proteins such as almond butter, chia seeds and nuts, they are especially valuable and blood sugar levels remain stable.
MCT fat in coconut oil
Coconut oil is an excellent source of fat that provides the components of the brain and nerves. Our brain is made of fat, so it makes sense to eat a lot of good fat. MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) from coconut oil are absorbed unchanged and transported to the liver where they are used directly for energy. They improve cognitive ability.
Lecithin and choline from eggs
Eggs contain lecithin and choline. Both are important substances for the functioning of the nervous system.
