You Feel Anxious: Eat Brazil Nuts

Thanks to their hectic lives, at least 65 percent of women are hit with daily bouts of stress and even anxiety, say researchers at Logan’s Utah State University. Yet munching on a few Brazil nuts daily can make even the busiest life feel a lot more serene. The nuts are nature’s top source of selenium -- a mineral that helps soothe the central nervous system. According to researchers at Britain’s University of Wales in Swansea, boosting your selenium intake to 220 micrograms daily -- the amount in just three Brazil nuts -- can trigger a dramatic improvement in moods, helping you feel calmer, less anxious and more energetic within three months.
