Baker’s yeast: Thanks to its B vitamins, it is also a good reinforcer of the central nervous system, and therefore it can help improve cases of depression, anxiety, stress, apathy, or lack of appetite. We can eat it in powder form, mixed with juice or yogurt, or in tablet form, if we don’t like the slightly bitter flavor. Some brands sell it debittered to soften its flavor. If we take it with food, it will improve nutrition assimilation.
Oatmeal: This delicious cereal acts as a nervous system stabilizer. It calms irritable states and mild anxiety, relieves insomnia, including in small children, and increases mental performance. It is strangely a food that both relaxes and gives energy. We can eat it cooked, sweet or salty, boiled with milk with a little cinnamon, or with creamed vegetables. We can also drink oatmeal “milk”.
Bee Pollen: Pollen is a superfood. It equalizes the blood pH and nervous system function thanks to its B vitamins. We will take a tablespoon of ground pollen every morning, mixed with a bit of water, juice, or yogurt.
Alterations in the nervous system, such as insomnia, anxiety, hyperactivity, worry, or panic attacks can be symptoms of a lack of magnesium in our bodies.
It is recommended, in these cases, to daily consume foods rich in magnesium, such as:
Cocoa: Dark chocolate has almost 500 mg of magnesium per 3.5 ounces.
Green leafy vegetables: Swiss chard, lettuce, spinach.
Fruit: Banana, apricot, avocado, melon, plum.
Nuts: Almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, walnuts.
Legumes: Peas, lentils.
Cereal: Brown rice, millet, oats.
