Are you eating enough protein
Mental Health Awareness
Tuesday 14th August 2018
I am proud to be supporting Camden Hub who are a Well Being Centre based in Swiss Cottage. I will be providing talks and taster sessions on Saturday 1st September 2018.
Nutrition can impact mental well being and here are some the following reasons:
- Neuro transmitters are chemicals including Serotonin and GABA, which impact our mood and well being.
- To create these neuro transmitters b vitamins, zinc and protein are required.
- Diet would be a good starting point to address whether you are absorbing and eat the right foods to help boost well being
- Stress can deplete these nutrients, along with poor diet and sleep. Additionally, pharmaceutical drugs and genetic predispositions may also be a reason for lower absorption of these essential nutrients.
Foods recommended are:
Avocados, wild salmon, extra virgin olive oil, nuts/seeds, turkey, dark green leafy vegetables and sweet potato
(If on medication always check with a Medical Practitioner )
- Phosphatidyl Choline
Genetic Testing is now available specifically for nutrition and mental well being
