Eat right to improve your mental health

from Dod Live

Different foods affect your brain — and, as a result, your behavior — differently. For example, your brain relies on chemicals called "neurotransmitters" for proper functioning. Not eating enough complex carbohydrates (such as those in whole grains and fruits) and healthy fats (such as the omega-3 fatty acids in salmon or nuts) can trigger imbalances in the production or activity of some neurotransmitters, which can contribute to mood swings, irritability and food cravings. And if you don't eat enough protein-containing foods, your diet will lack the building blocks for the neurotransmitters that play roles in memory formation and alertness. more
