Can a poor diet depress you?
Almost everyone knows that food influences the body. Keeping junk food to a minimum and making better meal choices helps you maintain a healthy heart, powerful muscles, a strong immune system, and a normal weight. In reality, we tend to overlook how food affects mental health. But how do you know what amount of a certain supplement will support your brain function? Which supplements will work best for you? Dynamic Health Solutions clients enjoy a full range of private, remote, nutritional counseling, and we can help you find the right type of nutritional treatment for your best brain support.
The effects of deficiencies on the brain
Certain nutritional deficiencies can have a detrimental effect on mental health. For example, Thiamine, or vitamin B1 is found in legumes, seeds, and fortified grains, and is necessary for maintaining the brain’s energy stores. Many people on low carbohydrate diets can fall short in vitamin B levels. B1 keeps you fit by coordinating nerve and muscle activity. A deficiency of thiamine often leads to weakness, irritability, anxiety, and even depression. B1 also prevents homocysteine build-up in the blood due to high meat consumption or lifestyle factors and allows nerves to function properly. Other B Vitamins, like Folate (vitamin B9) are essential for supporting red blood cell production. Folate deficiency can cause lack of interest in life, depression, fatigue, poor sleep, and poor mood.
What nutrients may support good mood?
Proper nutrition is likely to keep you feeling better physically and emotionally and a major player in brain health game is peptide and nutritional therapy. With nutritional therapy you’ll replace key proteins and nutrients that are building blocks your body needs to produce a chemical called Serotonin. You may have read about this brain boosting “feel good” chemical your body craves for health and happiness. People who have depression often have low levels of serotonin.
B vitamins influence brain chemicals like dopamine and noradrenalin. Depression is often caused by a shortage of these chemicals and for people already taking a prescription for mental health, studies have also shown that a person’s response to depression medications improves when their diet contains higher levels of B Vitamins.
Peptide therapy has been proven to improve brain health, slow mental decline and increase production of Serotonin. At Dynamic Health Solutions, we offer individual, revolutionary Peptide treatments and nutritional supplements that promote and enhance Serotonin levels to keep your brain feeling young and your mood stable.
Magnesium is a nutrient that helps your body produce energy. It also helps your muscles, arteries, and heart work properly. Studies have shown that patients who take magnesium supplements recover more quickly from depression.
A vitamin D deficiency may contribute to a poor mood. Vitamin D plays a role in both major and minor depression, as well as cognitive decline. Vitamin D manages minerals such as phosphorus and promotes healthy bones and Vitamin D deficiency is also linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease. A low carbohydrate diet and busy lifestyle may cause a reduction in vitamin D intake and it’s important to know your levels. Your Dynamic Health Solutions team will provide all the tools and guidance you need to learn your levels and balance your body.
