5 Foods to Boost Your Mood Naturally

Studies have shown that the food we eat has chemical effects on our body depending on its properties. For example, you might notice that constantly consuming certain artificial foods gets you moody, tired, or anxious. Feeling like this prevents you from performing at optimal levels and enjoying your days. Let’s restore our bodies to their natural feel-good chemistry levels by learning the types of food that we can incorporate to our diet that will help us smile and build better brain health.

Mussels

Consuming mussels will provide your body with much-needed vitamin B12. This will help preserve your brain cells, keeping your mind sharp even as you grow older. The nutrients found in mussels will also help balance your mood and keep your thyroid healthy.

Swiss Chard

This food will provide magnesium to your body, which is essential for the proper conduction of the biochemical reactions in your brain and boosting your energy levels.

Blue Potatoes

Blue potatoes are rich in anthocyanins, which are very powerful antioxidants that will help you improve your short-term memory and reduce inflammation. If you are having a hard time finding blue potatoes on the supermarket you frequently shop at, stop by your local farmer’s market where you might be able to find them more easily.

Dark Chocolate

Dark Chocolate can help you feel more vibrant and energized because it improves blood flow to the brain. It will also help with concentration and mood. Make sure you stick with the darkest (highest percentage of cocoa) organic chocolate variety that you can, since milk chocolate tends to be high in sugar.
