                                           Natural Mental Health Tips





"Yogurt benefits mental health" Fermented foods, such as yogurt which has active cultures, kefir, kimchi, tempeh and certain pickled vegetables, have probiotics in them. Probiotics are healthy bacteria which have been shown in studies to decrease anxiety and stress hormones..


"Leafy green veggies promote mental health" Leafy green veggies such as broccoli, spinach, romaine, turnip and mustard greens are high in folic acid. Deficiencies in folate as well as other B vitamins have been associated with higher rates of depression, fatigue and insomnia.


"Lecithin may benefit brain health" Some studies have suggested that lecithin may be beneficial for brain and nerve function. Lecithin may help to improve memory. Soy milk is a good source of lecithin. Lecithin is also available in supplements.


"Exercise may help you beat depression" Regular exercise on a daily  basis may help you prevent and treat depression. Brisk walks, swimming, riding a bike or jogging are good forms of exercise to help improve your mood. Exercise in the fresh air and sunshine may have even more to offer for depression.


"Omega-3 for depression" Fish oil supplements may help to ease the symptoms of depression in some people. It has been suggested by some studies in adults that omega-3 fatty acids may be beneficial in the treatment of mild to moderate depression. Fish which are high in omega-3s include salmon, herring, sardines, trout and canned albacore.
