|Find Your Inner Peas|
Tiredness, stress, and fatigue are all too common these days. And when these are a constant in your life, it can be hard to think of a way to combat their effect.
The average advice explains that, in order to feel better, we must exercise regularly and get enough sleep. However, only in recent years have we finally begun to acknowledge the connection between diet and mood.
Like a fancy car, your brain functions best when it's given premium fuel. Eating high-quality vitamins and antioxidants nourishes your brain and protects it from oxidative stress.
Based on some of these studies, here are a few of our top recommendations to start feeling better.
|Heal from within with... Probiotics|
Research consistently proves our gut health influences our mental health – after all, it’s where the majority of our serotonin is produced.
70% of serotonin (the “feel good” chemical in our brain) is made in our gut. So, unhealthy gut = unhealthy mind, and vice versa.
|Stay sunny with... Vitamin D|
The sun — and the resultant vitamin D — have legitimate feel-good superpowers (i.e. preventing depletion of "happy" chemicals: serotonin and dopamine).
So much so that adequate levels of vitamin D are linked to warding off depression and regulating mood.*
|Relax and unwind with... Curcumin & Reishi Mushroom|
|Research shows curcumin may boost the production of "feel-good" hormones, like dopamine and serotonin, to help balance out feelings of anxiety and sadness.
Reishi mushroom, on the other hand, is popular in Eastern medicine and has been studied for its ability to assist in helping to reduce fatigue and anxiety.
