Pickles Found To Reduce Anxiety

June 24th, 2015

A recent study has been done in the food department that could help you feel much better overall. According to an article found on reddit and written by Grub Street, it was found that eating pickles made people much less anxious than people who avoided them. Basically there was some kind of link between eating pickled food items and reducing the amount of stress and social anxiety levels in someone. Oddly enough they found that students at a university who participated in test were far less anxious if they really liked kimchi or sauerkraut or pickles.

Folks at Skout think that this is surely an interesting concept, and now they know they may turn to the fridge when it comes to a stressful time. I think that whatever the reason is for the soothing effects it is still a pretty neat thing to have found out. Because after all who doesn’t eat pickles? I think that there are times when you are just hungry but don’t know what to eat, so turning to a pickle would easily make that craving and restlessness disappear.

It won’t be long before this is tested out again, and hopefully whoever decides to participate in in again will have the same findings. It is just nice to know about something that is guaranteed to calm you down in major times of stress.
