Mental Wellness Through Food

A change of diet through Metabolic Balance program can not only help with you physical but also mental well-being. Different chemicals and processes in the brain are responsible for your mood and are impacted by what you eat. For example, serotonin is produced in a healthy intestinal flora when the body has absorbed enough tryptophan through a healthy diet. Omega-3 fatty acids commonly found fish, flax and chia seeds are important for brain metabolism. B vitamins found in many foods including protein sources are also brain boosting vitamins. All of this is to say that, “happiness can be eaten”.
