Joey Asher reports on Speechworks’ blog:
The scientists gave either amino-acid supplements or a placebo to a group of men and asked them to give a speech. The men who had taken the supplements experienced half as much anxiety according measurements of stress hormones in their bloodstream.
Yogurt and nuts have very high levels of the type of amino-acids used in the study. So a healthy snack might help reduce your anxiety.
It seems logical that this stress-reducing snack might be a good choice in advance of an interview, which is kind of like a super-stressful speech and presentation all rolled into one!
So, prepare for your interview, and give yourself an extra boost by downing some yummy amino acids!
