How Good Nutrition Can Help Your Mood

I think it’s no accident that since the advent of lots of processed food with added sugar in the Western diet, depression and other mood disorders have dramatically risen.

Let’s look at a couple of key ingredients and nutrients that have been shown to directly affect our mood.

OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS

There’s another fatty acid called Omega 6 and from what I’ve read there’s an important balance between omega 3 and omega 6 that needs to happen.

VITAMIN D

A big reason for this drop in mood is a lack of vitamin D. With the advent of strong sunscreen and a global health policy that warns us of sun exposure and cautions us to cover up or wear sunscreen.

B VITAMINS

Being happy takes energy and a key ingredient in making sure we get the energy we need from our foods are B vitamins.

MAGNESIUM

Last but not least let’s talk about magnesium. This is starting to become more and more of an issue as our soils are magnesium depleted and less of this mineral makes it into our food.
