How nutrition habits can influence mental health
A famous French physician named Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin said in 1826 “Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are”. Scientific evidence supports the statement and only nutrient-rich food can provide people with all the nutrients we need. For many years that was a strong believe just for our physical health and fitness but recent studies have shown that this phrase now extends even to our mental health.
These recent studies show that good nutrition is essential and the linking between what is consumed and mental wellbeing is growing rapidly. Specifically it is shown that many mental health conditions such as depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), stress and Alzheimer’s disease are influenced by dietary factors.
