Take control of your mental health through nutrition!
May 8, 2017
The importance of the mind | body | spirit connection has been touted by health and fitness leaders for decades. Only now is the full potential impact of that oh so vital trifecta beginning to really take hold in the population at large.
Fitness is becoming a way of life for many. Society is starting to come around and wake up to healthier lifestyle choices but, at the very same time, we have become the number one prescription country in the world for anti-depressants as well as anti-anxiety medications.
There is a disconnect.
Our food choices, be it restaurant outings, grocery store trips, school lunch programs, or our very own garden, have a very real impact on our health – not only physically in how we feel and how our bodies are able to operate, but in quality of thought and emotion as affected by hormone variances, nutritional deficiencies, and toxicity levels.
We literally are what we eat.
Our bodies are constantly creating new cells and shedding old dying cells. What we choose to eat becomes the very foundation – the building blocks for the new and upcoming version of us.
Eating processed foods filled with chemicals and food like substances will never create a strong and healthy body. Over time it can actually lead to break down and illness. When your body does not receive the nutrition it needs, it can become deficient. Adequate nutrition is needed for body and brain function.
Poor quality diet puts you at risk for depression.
That is a major statement made publicly by Biological Psychiatry. Vitamin B9 (folate) found in many vegetables and legumes, has been deemed critical in brain metabolic pathway function. Lack of folate has been linked to a multitude of mental health disorders including depression and low mood.  Additionally the role of carbohydrates, tryptophan and vitamins in promoting positive overall mental wellbeing had been correlated in numerous scholarly studies.  There are countless studies proving the link time and time again between mental illness and inadequate nutritional intake.
The biggest excuse we all tend to use when it comes to putting off straightening out our diets is “I’m just too busy”.
Life today is incredibly busy. The majority of us are always on the go and the truth of it is – you aren’t wrong. That is where we come in. Superfit Food’s goal is to do the work for you.
