What you put in your body is what you’re going to get out. It’s what fuels your body and your brain, which provides some evidence for the gut-to-brain connection. In essence, the nutrients that you put in your body may send signals to your central nervous system that can cause chemical imbalances in your brain and create mood changes. There is still more research to support this hypothesis, but early indications provide some correlation. Many people around the world suffer from some form of anxiety. If you are tired of being limited by your anxiety, try out these foods.
