The food we eat can have a profound effect on our mood and mental wellbeing. In fact, bodies of evidence now suggest that our diet is as important to our mental health, as it is our physical health.
The right balance of nutrients and vitamins is essential to create our happy and pleasure hormones –Dopamine & Serotonin and keep our cognitive functioning firing on all cylinders. And our blood sugar levels need to be suitably balanced to avoid the fatigue and low mood that comes with a sugar crash.
Did you know 95% of your serotonin is produced in your gastrointestinal tract and 70% of your immune system can be found in our digestive system? All the more reason to keep your intestinal microbiome topped up with ‘good bacteria’.
