Mental health has quite rightly been spoken about a lot in the last few years and even more so through 2020 when the pandemic made it extremely difficult for a lot of people to cope from a psychological point of view. With emerging researching identifying that so many factors can effect our mentality, this week we speak about one of those factors that we have some element of control over... food. Food and mood researcher and Registered Dietitian Sophie Mahoney, discusses the latest evidence we have around how what we eat can impact our mood and mental wellbeing.
Things we discuss:
- Gut health
- Indications of a healthy gut
- How to optimise diet
- Research behind brain health and gut health
- Specific foods to support our wellbeing
- & more!
