Research shows that food can have a direct impact on mental health. Just like any other organ, the brain requires proper nutrients for optimal functioning. What we eat creates our neurotransmitters, proteins and amino acids and the nutrition we get out of our food such as antioxidants, vitamins and healthy oil help fuel our function and mood. In 2009 research concluded that a Mediterranean diet reduces the risk of mental illness by 30%. A 2010 study found a correlation between deficiencies in nutrients like folic acid, magnesium and omega-3 and a higher prevalence of depression. In contrast there is a mountain of evidence to suggest processed foods high in sugar in fat can trigger depression and make symptoms worse. Eating a healthy balanced diet will help you maintain a healthy body weight resulting in more energy and confidence. You will recall from my previous videos that lack of confidence and energy are symptoms of depression. For more information on how to eat for mental health consult with your healthcare provider.
