Good Mood FoodsSep 26, 2022
What you eat has a profound effect on your mood. Studies have shown that the proper diet can help to reduce anxiety and improve mood. While there is no one ‘perfect’ diet, certain foods have been shown to have mood-boosting effects.
For example, omega-3 fatty acids are essential for brain health and are readily available in a wide variety of plant foods. Sources include walnuts, flaxseeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, edamame, seaweed, and algae. Other green leafy vegetables and beans also contain small amounts.
Oily fish such as salmon and mackerel are sources of omega-3 but also contain less healthy substances like saturated fat and potentially contamination.
Dark leafy greens are also rich in nutrients that support mental health, including folate, iron, and magnesium. In addition, foods that contain probiotics, such as kimchi and sauerkraut, have been shown to promote good gut health, which is essential for overall health and well-being.
By incorporating these mood-enhancing foods into your diet, you can help to boost your mood and improve your health.
