Mediterranean diets can boost your mood

by The 100 Companies

Need a mental pick-me-up? It just so happens that eating the traditional Mediterranean diet can give a big boost to your mood. While mental health is a complex issue that needs to be addressed from different angles, diet is an important tool that can deliver promising results.

The Mediterranean diet is rich in polyphenols, omega-3 fatty acids and flavonoids that all have a positive impact on mental health. Increasing evidence supports the link between positive mood and the gut microbiome. Studies have shown that those who adhere to a Mediterranean diet had better bacterial diversity in the gut.
