This week experts have revealed new research that shows the positive effect a healthy diet and nutritional supplements can have on maintaining and promoting mental health.
Their evidence, from clinical research, supports the use of several nutritional supplements for certain types of psychiatric disorders. Here are the top three nutrients that could positively influence your brain health:
1. Omega 3
Taking omega 3 supplements appears beneficial for addressing mental health symptoms of depression, bipolar and post-traumatic stress disorder. Omega 3 fats can be found in nuts, seeds and oily fish, however, omega 3 is also available in a supplement form. Pharma Nord's Fish Oil Supplements contains pure and natural fish oil derived from deep ocean fish. Comparatively, with no fishy taste, they are an easy and effective way to top up your omega-3 levels.
Zinc, magnesium and iron play important roles in the body's neurological function. In light of this, supplementation with any one of these has shown to improve depressed moods and symptoms of anxiety helping mental health. Pharma Nord's Magnesium Supplements provides 200mg of pure magnesium, which dissolves completely within a few minutes ensuring maximum absorption.
3. Vitamin D
Vitamin D is hitting the headlines a lot recently thanks to its important role in supporting immune and bone health, however, it is also essential for brain development. Data suggests low levels of vitamin D during childhood can increase the risk of schizophrenia and depressive symptoms. The majority of our vitamin D is produced by our body from UV rays, however, during the winter months, our levels of vitamin D reduce. Choose Pharma Nord's Vitamin D3 Supplements to keep your levels topped up. Our Bio-Vitamin D3 is available in three strengths and furthermore, it contains the same form of vitamin D naturally produced within the body.
