This is a short & simple list of Nutrients known to decrease Anxiety.
But why is your anxiety happening in the first place?
An incomplete answer to this is...
if increasing these nutrients decreases anxiety symptoms,
then you are deficient in these nutrients.
But why are you deficient in these nutrients?
It could be
Low Nutrient Intake,

or a combination of these.

No one would be struggling with anxiety.
