Mental Health Awareness Month May 10, 2022

The quality of food you eat can impact your overall physical and mental health.

Your gut is often called "the second brain" and communicates with your actual brain - physically through the vagus nerve and chemically through hormones and neurotransmitters.

These nutrients are important for mental health:

  • OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS: essential to brain health; reduces inflammation and risk of heart disease
  • B-GROUP VITAMINS: help to regulate brain chemicals, immune function, and amino acids (the building blocks of proteins)
  • VITAMIN D: important for brain function, including mood and critical thinking
