(GivenUs.com) – Moodiness and feeling a little blue are facts of life; they can also be seriously challenging. But, did you know that you can potentially change a foul mood by eating the right foods?
It turns out your brain is like an expensive vehicle. It requires the best premium gasoline to run efficiently. Consuming junk food laden with chemicals is like dumping bad fuel into the tank — a serious no-no.
That’s where your tummy comes in. Your gut is often referred to as your second brain. And like Dr. Gundry shares in this video, it should be fed the right nutrients.
Your body relies on the gut-brain axis to alter mood and boost emotional health. Here is how to balance out your mood with food and live your best life ever.
- Mood change? Check your diet. When stressed or depressed we often turn to quick carbs like candy bars, chips and other high fat treats. Replace them with healthy snacks high in protein and low in sugar.
- Add some serotonin. This is the feel good hormone that helps manage stress and anxiety to regulate your mood. Adding things like eggs, cheese and pineapple to your diet can help you feel better. Loaded with healthy fats, these foods will leave you fueled up and feeling happy.
- These foods support your gut-brain axis. Also referred to as GBA, foods that support your gut brain axis helps regulate mood. Try consuming foods like dark chocolate and strawberries. They release endorphins that can make your brain feel good.
- Don’t forget the sleepy supplement — melatonin. Cherries, rice, mushrooms and mustard seeds are rich in melatonin, which helps aid in sleep. Sleep helps reduce stress and regulate the gut.
Mood swings and irregularities do not always indicate a serious problem. It could be something as simple as switching up your diet. Take a closer look at what you’re consuming daily and make a few adjustments. The results will amaze you!
