Foods can have effects on our mood. Every food has a chemical effect in our body.
A piece of cake or donuts can make you feel sad, depressed. First you will experience an energy boost and possibly a better mood, but afterwards when your blood levels go down, you will also have a “low” mood, feeling tired and fatigued.
Foods that can improve your mood are:
Nuts, 1 banana per day, fish and other foods that contain a lot of Omega 3. You should consider taking Omega 3 supplements, e.g. fish oil supplements.
According to Dr. Oz, Omega 3 can also help you to reduce stress. Fatty fishs and Walnuts contain a lot of Omega 3 vitamins. Fatty fish might not sound “healthy”, but sardine and mackerel are a really great source of omega-3 fatty acids!!
A lack of Vitamin D can also have effects on your mood.
