On the other hand, if you are in a anxious, it is best to eat fresh fruit, especially oranges and lemons. It also suggests eating vitamin B complex, found in meat, eggs, cheese, nuts and green leafy vegetables like spinach and chard, sweet milk drinks as well, all this to reduce the effect of the lack of vitamin C and vitamin B6 (similar to the stress).
