Important Role of Nutrients
Changes in the gut microbiome (which is linked to the food you consume) especially affect one part of the brain known as the amygdala - a structure found deep in the brain.

Anxiety disorders are the most common type of psychiatric disorders in the U.S. with up to one third of the population suffering from one in their lifetime. The brain needs a steady supply of nutrients from your gut to help it work properly and keep you operating at your best.
