Did you know that one reason that could cause all that is because your body and your brain lacks nutrients?
Yes, its true.
Read on and you'll see how these nutrients can help make you feel more at peace and calm.
1. The B-vitamins
Vitamin B such as acid folic builds new brain cells and acts as a serotonin.
Some short facts about serotonin:
- Serotonin is a chemical that carries the signals along and between your nerves. Your brain is one of the three organs that serotonin is mainly found in.
- Serotonin transmit impulses between nerve cells, regulates cyclic body processes and contributes to wellbeing and happiness.
- Serotonin is regarded by some researchers as a chemical that is responsible for maintaining mood balance and a deficit of serotonin leads to depression.
Omega-3 makes up 18% of our brain weight. Hence, lack of Omega-3 in your brain can cause a huge impact to your mood, affects your ability to control stress and may also cause memory-loss.
A twenty-year study involving 3,317 men and women found that people with the highest consumption of EPA and DHA (found in Omega-3) were less likely to have mood challenges.
3. Vitamin D
We usually hear that vitamin D is good for your bones, or for the optimal absorption of calcium. But actually, vitamin D is also very much needed by your brain to function well.
It plays a critical role in cognitive functions, including learning and making memories. Those with lower vitamin D have exhibited slower information-processing speed.
But when it comes to being happy, scientific evidence has shown that with higher levels of vitamin D, you would be more likely to feel happy rather than blue.
4. Amino Acid
Insufficient amino acid can make someone temperamental, unable to control their feelings, lack motivation and depression. Period.
So now comes the question, how do you ensure that you get enough of the above nutrients in your body?
For those of you who have the time, you might want to look into your diet and make changes to your food intake so that you'll get the nutrients needed.
But if you're like me, who barely gets to shower for more than 10 minutes without being called or needed by your kids, I suggest you take supplements.
