Nutritional and Metabolic Psychiatry

Nutritional and Metabolic Psychiatry

The mind-gut connection plays a pivotal role in managing stress and anxiety. Nutritional psychiatry emphasizes gut health through the consumption of inflammation-reducing foods. A diet rich in fiber, nutrients, healthy fats, and proteins can significantly decrease anxiety and inflammation.

Prebiotic fiber-rich vegetables like asparagus, garlic, onions, leafy greens, and artichokes, nurture healthy gut bacteria, reducing neuroinflammation and stress. Berries, packed with antioxidants and vitamins, support a robust microbiome and curtail inflammation.

Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish like salmon, anchovies, and walnuts decrease gut and brain inflammation, reducing anxiety, brain fog, and cognitive decline. Spices such as turmeric, cinnamon, and ginger are also beneficial due to their anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants.

Fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, and yogurt replenish good bacteria in the gut, maintaining a healthy microbiome and resisting chronic inflammation. Incorporating these foods into your diet can boost mental fitness and reduce anxiety.
