Foods To Calm The Nervous System

The nervous system is regarded as the body's "command center." It originates in the brain and essentially controls everything we think, say, feel, or do. It also regulates other vital bodily functions such as digestion, sexual development, and breathing. We couldn't blush, blink, sleep, or move without our nervous system. To say it's necessary is an understatement. Here are the foods that calm down the nervous system.

Dark chocolates

Dark chocolate increases the production of endorphins, which are feel-good chemicals. Endorphins bind to opiate receptors in the brain, causing euphoria similar to that experienced by joggers on "runner's high." They also alleviate pain and the negative effects of stress. Chocolate is a high-quality dietary source of tryptophan, an amino acid precursor to serotonin, the neurotransmitter that regulates happiness and mood. Chocolate is the primary food source of anandamide, also known as the "bliss molecule."

It contains nutrients that promote brain health, such as vitamin D and the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) .These nutrients may help regulate the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin, which have calming and relaxing properties.

A diet high in EPA and DHA, in particular, has been linked to lower levels of anxiety. These fatty acids are thought to reduce inflammation and prevent brain cell dysfunction, which is common in anxious people .This may also help your brain's ability.


Chamomile is a herb that may aid in the reduction of anxiety. It has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which may aid in the reduction of inflammation associated with anxiety. Some studies have looked into the relationship between chamomile extract and anxiety relief. One 38-week randomized study of 179 people with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) found that chamomile extract (1,500 milligrams daily) significantly reduced symptoms compared to those who did not (PubMed Central).

B6, specifically, supports the improvement of intellectual capacity. For ideal capacity, it is prescribed that you take 1.1 to 1.7 milligrams of nutrient B6 each day, and a banana contains 0.5 milligrams of that. When combined with magnesium, which helps concentration (bananas contain an impressive 37 milligrams, and it is suggested that individuals get somewhere in the range of 265 and 350 milligrams every day), you can feel all the more sensible, relaxed and focused.


Curcumin found in turmeric has the ability to increase brain-derived neurotrophic factor. Prior to scientists' better understanding of neurons, it was thought that they couldn't divide and multiply after early childhood. They now know, however, that this is not the case. Neurons can form new connections and multiply and increase in number in certain areas of the brain. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor is one of the primary drivers of this process (BDNF). This is a gene that is involved in the production of a protein that promotes the life of neurons. The BDNF protein is involved in memory and learning, and it is found in areas of the brain that control eating, drinking, and body weight.
