Encourage anxiety & depression? caffeine (sodas, coffee & teas), sugar and alcohol are the easy to remember on a daily basis.
Discourage anxiety & depression? I know I said sugar, but) a couple pieces of dark chocolate does calm your nerves, there is also a bacteria called Lacti-something (you can find it in some yogurts) that relieves anxiety: check the ingredients label.
Everybody is different on this one: make sure you are pooping at least every two times a days, anything that makes you constipated, I'm serious, encourages anxiety and depression. We have to flush all those yucky toxins out of out system. If you don't go for 5/6 days, it's not only uncomfortable, its highly suggested that you go to the ER (they will mix you up a good strong enema that is fast acting!)-I only know b/c I work in the ER, and constipation is nothing to take lightly.
Well, and to answer your original question it can make you feel anxious.
Surprisingly enough Apples lower your serotonin. Google foods that lower serotonin, right when you think you are eating healthy... You want to keep your serotonin levels up, that is what Rx Meds do, they improve your serotonin balance.
