Mood Foods: Anxiety

What Exactly is Anxiety?

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) says, “Anxiety is a very normal and natural emotion that we all experience. For instance, it is normal to feel anxious before giving a presentation in front of a large group, being unable to meet an upcoming deadline, writing an exam, or doing a job interview. Feelings of anxiety might lead us to question our confidence or seek reassurance from others.”

Low levels of selenium can lead to increased anxiety and depression. selenium for anxiety Brazil nuts (1 ounce or  6-8 nuts) contain 544 micrograms (over 700% of the daily recommended intake) of Selenium.
