BOOST Your Mood with This Food Swap (Easy!)

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Feeling a little blue? You’re not alone.

Over two million seniors are battling depression… and the numbers aren’t slowing.

But the answer isn’t what the mainstream wants you to think.

Because while fixing depression is possible, taking a pill is NOT the way to do it.

Instead, try this easy food swap to BOOST your mood and feel like yourself again in no time!

*****

Unfortunately, junk food can destroy your mood and your brain in many ways.

Sugar will give you a good jolt — but that sugar rush is always temporary. As your blood sugar crashes, so does your outlook on life.

Poor quality foods are also filled with preservatives, additives, and colors – all of which are hard on your body and brain.

Sugar and many additives increase inflammation in your body – and your brain is especially susceptible to that inflammation. Scientists now believe inflammation in the brain is one of the main causes of depression and anxiety.

What your brain really craves are good quality nutrients to help it function, keep inflammation in check, and clean out debris.

Here’s what your brain needs:

  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids. These essential fatty acids found in fish oil are just what your brain needs (in good times and bad). An extensive study of over 150,000 people found that consuming high amounts of omega-3s help protect us from depression AND people feel less aggressive and hostile (scientists think this is because omega-3s drop inflammation).
  • Green Veggies. Broccoli, spinach, and Brussels sprouts contain B vitamins that your brain needs to produce serotonin. There are multiple studies showing a link between B vitamins and depression. Low B vitamin status is also linked to poor memory and fatigue.
  • Probiotics. The last place people look to fix their brain is their gut – but maybe it should be their first stop. You know that probiotics help keep your digestive track on track, but probiotics also have been studied to help reduce negative thoughts, sad moods, and alleviate depression.
  • Vitamin D. You know vitamin D for bone health and immunity, but it’s also good for mental health. A recent analysis of over 30,000 people found that people with low vitamin D levels were more likely to be depressed, have worse moods, and poor cognitive performance.
