Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/24/2014 -- The importance of mental health has been highlighted recently in several studies, and more and more people are becoming aware of the effect anxiety has on their everyday lives. Job performance, physical capabilities, and overall happiness can be affected by mental distress, and increased anxiety levels. There are numerous, natural ways to help combat anxiety though and many of them can be done through dietary changes and monitoring.
A study released by Ohio State University showed that omega-3 fatty acids can help relieve anxiety in those who consume them on a regular basis. While supplements of the acid can be beneficial overtime, the best way to get this essential nutrient is through a diet rich in fresh fatty fish – the best natural source for omega-3 acids.
Fortunately for those who don't like fish, omega-3’s can be found in other sources. Many eggs are no offering special brands that have increased omega-3 acids inside them, but eggs are also a good source of vitamin B, which is crucial for brain health. Vitamin B helps the brain to function at peak performance, and aids in the reduction of irritability and anxiety among numerous other affects.
Vitamins within food all play an essential role in keeping us healthy, as do certain types of bacteria that occur naturally in the body. Taking a probiotic supplement or eating foods high in probiotics can help maintain a healthy digestive system has been associated in reduced feelings of depression and anxiety according to an Irish study released in 2011.
Finally, finding a way to calm the mind is essential for reducing feelings of stress. Unwinding during the middle of the day or in the evening with a cup of green or chamomile tea has been shown to reduce stress in anxiety prone students. Aside from the health benefits of the tea itself, the warm liquid can help relax muscles and put the mind into a calmer state which will help create a better atmosphere for sleep.
While none of the above is an instant cure-all for stress, they can help a person struggling begin the fight toward creating a healthier lifestyle with a reduction in stress that can help increase their overall satisfaction with life.
