8) Stress: Brazil Nuts and Avocados

With all other important aspects of health defined, our last and final pillar to improve with food is mental health. By keeping stress levels low, you not only support a strong frame of mind but help encourage healthy function of many of your body's vital organs. One of anxiety's biggest impacts on our body's health is the depletion of zinc, which is why consuming foods that are high in this mineral, such as Brazil nuts and oysters, is a great tool for compensating high levels of stress. Another mineral that is greatly impacted by stress is vitamin B6. While there are many foods that contain vitamin B6, avocado is known as one of the largest sources and can help keep your stress levels at bay.
