Tired of fighting with stress and worry?

Try these foods that fight anxiety and depression!

1.  Foods rich in tryptophan (sweet potatoes, beets and carrots)

Tryptophan is an amino acid that converts to serotonin in your brain, boosting happiness levels.

2.  Foods that are rich in selenium (whole grains, nuts, seeds, and shellfish).

Low intake of selenium is linked to depression.

3. Foods rich in Vitamin C (red bell peppers, broccoli, kiwi, peaches, collard greens)

Vitamin C reduces stress–which in turn reduces anxiety.

4. Foods rich in Omega 3’s (walnuts, flaxseed, chia seeds, salmon, tuna)

Omega-3 fatty acid stabilize mood.

To your health!
