I have heard before that some people with nervousness/shyness can be lessened with the type of foods they eat. Is there anyone here knows what food are those that will help people ease their nervousness and shyness in front of many people?

From my own personal experience, chocolate works perfectly for me to calm my nervousness. I am not sure why but when i search for the advantage of eating chocolate, there are some reports that says chocolate increase something in your body that makes you feel more energetic as well as happy, perhaps that is also the reason why that will works for nervousness. You can give it a try too since there is no harm in trying. Good luck & have a nice day.

Oh...now I know. When people gets depress or at least feel lonely they tend to eat chocolate. Maybe it's true that chocolate energize or improve something with our body functions to get over any negative emotions.

Mmmmm...chocolate. Makes me feel better. It does seem to have a calming effect on some people. Dark chocolate is supposed to be better than milk chocolate, health-wise.

hi, in my idea i think there is no food that can lessen our nervousness in our body,but most of the people who get nervous are those people who are addicted to drink coffee everyday,and those people shy to face many people,to lessen this is to have more confident in their self.

A Plate of Light Meal - Veggie tuna dish plate
I know that coffee is really bad for the heart and could cause palpitation so if you are suffering from nervousness you must avoid coffee. Eating more of fruits and veggies and lots of water will help because they are light on your stomach, have cleansing effect and very refreshing.
