Nutrition for good mental health

Nutrition plays a very important role not only in wellbeing and physical health but also in mental health. Eating high-quality food is just like fueling an expensive car with premium fuel. Highly nutritious food that contains lots of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and nourishes the brain and protects it from oxidative stress. The MIND diet combines both DASH and Mediterranean diets, each specifically affecting brain health, which may lower your risk of mental decline.

Eating a healthy diet that consists of leafy greens, nuts, and berries may lower a person’s risk of developing a progressive brain disorder. In cases such as ADHD, depression, and other mental disorders; we see that diet has a very big impact on mental health and overall health.

Eating a diet high in omega 3, low in sugar, and high in fibers helps the brain work better. The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are critical for normal brain function and development throughout all stages of life. These fatty acids are also vital for the maintenance of normal brain function throughout life. They are abundant in the cell membranes of brain cells, preserving cell membrane health and facilitating communication between brain cells.Nutrition for good mental health
