Nutritional Support for Mental Health

"When times are tough, it’s common to think that stress and poor mood are beyond our control. While our circumstances are undeniable, it’s important to consider the psychological & physical resilience of the individual – especially our nutrition. Understanding the essential role nutrition plays in the structure & function of our brain, informs us that what we eat matters. And targeted nutritional strategies can offer significant protection against, as well as treatment of, mental health issues. This is a powerful introduction to the new field of research: Nutritional Psychiatry, in easily accessible language with engaging graphics and animations that will leave you with a clear call to action & a sense of empowerment."
