Fish have omega 3 fatty acids that help with mental function to an extreme extent. There have been numerous studies stating that fish oil can help reduce your risk for depression and sometimes even cure it entirely. If fish does not appeal to you, a fish oil supplement can also help and is easy to take. Fish is also a healthy alternative to red meats which come with their own mixed bag of issue that they can cause.
As you can see mental health is not just caused by environmental factors. The statement “you are what you eat” stands true even to this day. If you put garbage and unhealthy foods into your body you will be functioning at a lower rate than your peers with a healthy diet. Having bad mental health doesn’t just leave you depressed or anxious but it can also lead you to obesity. Many mental health drugs have been associated with antipsychotic associated obesity which is rapid weight gain due to the use of the drug. Take care of yourself on the inside and out because all of this is interconnected.
