Background: Nowadays due to increasing demands of our society’s lifestyle stress, worry and feeling of un satisfaction has increased a lot leading to anxiety which has become one of the most common problem faced by population. In past few years use of anxiolytic drugs have increased a lot however because of adverse effects faced by patients, increased cost and dependence nowadays there is more focus on screening nutrients used in everyday life. Objective: The current study is based on evaluating the effects of Pineapple juice in anxiety. Methodology: The present study has been conducted on albino mice of either sex weighing between 18-24 gm. The mice were equally divided into 3 groups (control, Standard and Pineapple juice). Head dip, light and Dark model, Open Field and elevated plus maze methods were used for evaluating anxiety.Result: Our study revealed Pineapple Juice had significant

anxiolytic activity in comparison to control and standard drug lorazepam. Conclusion: From above study we can conclude that Pineapple possesses Vitamins and flavonoids due to which anxiolytic effect is observed. As non-pharmacological therapy Pineapple juice can be incorporated in diet of people who suffer from anxiety. Since it is a tasty drink that is commonly consumed in everyday life it will not have any harmful effects and will be better than allopathic anxiolytic drugs which have number of adverse effects associated with them.
