Did you know? 🍩 What you eat can significantly impact your mood. That’s because the same foods that nourish your body also nourish your brain.
⭐ Our food plan contains the ideal amount of nutrients to help support brain health, including:
🥑 Healthy fats. Your brain is about 60 percent fat, primarily as the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). To optimize brain health and manage depression, you’ll choose high-quality, anti-inflammatory sources of dietary fat. Those include cold-water fish, called “brain food” for a reason: seafood is rich in the fatty acids DHA and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA).
🐟 Moderate amounts of protein. Your brain requires amino acids from protein to build neurotransmitters or chemical messengers. 🌟 In Happy Gut, Vincent Pedre, MD, says deficiencies in these amino acids can contribute to depression. Many foods rich in healthy fats — including cold-water fish and walnuts — are also excellent protein sources.
🍓 Nutrient-dense plant foods. Our Advanced Plan also incorporates a wide variety of low-sugar, nutrient-dense plant foods. Epidemiological evidence shows that the flavonoids in fruits and vegetables can help decrease your risk of developing depression. 🥗
Healthy food might be the most powerful antidepressant on the planet, without any side effects of medications and other invasive procedures. 🙏 Our Advanced Plan becomes ideal to manage your weight.
