Mental Health Nutrition

Mental health nutrition is the application of nutrition principals for an optimally functioning, healthy brain. Aside from macronutrient adequacy (the types and amounts of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins you eat), micronutrients have a profound effect on your brain health and therefore the health of your emotions and mental energy. Your brain depends on dozens of micronutrients for optimal functioning. Examples of micronutrients are zinc, magnesium, all the B vitamins, other coenzymes, other minerals, and more.
