How Nutrition Impacts the Brain and Mental Health

"In my practice, I was prescribing medications and doing talk therapy, but it seemed clear that food presented a unique opportunity to further help my patients. It would certainly be my most delicious prescription. Better food choices would ensure that my patients’ brains were optimally nourished with “building block” nutrients such as omega-3 fats, vitamin B12, and zinc. It would also make their brains more resilient by enhancing brain growth — the latest brain science tells us that human brains continue to grow through adulthood, creating new brain cells and also new connections. On top of that, eating better food would decrease my patients’ risk of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, all diseases that wreak havoc on mental health."
