Nice and very informative post.Thanks for sharing such a valuable post AMR A.A

Here are some more food which reduce anxiety according to personal experience in my Nursing Home Surrey.

There are foods that will help cure anxiety and foods that will contribute to anxiety, and by choosing the right foods, you can drastically cut down on the amount of anxiety you experience – and possibly improve your mood.

Blueberries are more than a delicious fruit. Many consider it to be a superfood. It's rich in vitamins and phytonutrients (plant nutrients), with a variety of antioxidants that are considered extremely beneficial for relieving stress.

Almonds are an underrated food. They contain zinc, a key nutrient for maintaining a balanced mood – and have both iron and healthy fats.

Chocolate – especially pure dark chocolate without the added sugars or milks – is also a great food for those living with anxiety and stress.
