“An increasing body of research suggests that maintaining micronutrient sufficiency helps support balanced moods, mental clarity and a balanced relationship with food. Unfortunately, modern lifestyles have made it is increasingly hard to achieve optimal micronutrient sufficiency from diet alone. Examples of micronutrients and their functions include: zinc, which helps maintain positive outlook, manage stress responses, ensure focus, and plays a key role in digestion; manganese, which is necessary for the synthesis of two key neurotransmitters and supports brain function; chromium, which aids in glucose metabolism and supports a positive outlook; iodine: Required for the synthesis of thyroid hormones, and a balanced metabolism; vitamin B12, which is necessary for mood and energy balance, maintaining memory and producing neurotransmitters; and vitamin D, which is involved in regulating glucose and calcium transport to and within the brain, and may also protect clearer cognition by increasing the availability of neurotransmitters.
A vast number of dietary supplements that contain micronutrients are on the marketplace. One product that appears to tick all the boxes is MicroNourish. The supplement is specifically designed to target brain and gut balance with micronutrients. It is designed to promote inner balance, mental clarity, and a calmer relationship with food, providing the body with essential nutrients such as zinc, manganese, chromium, iodine, Vitamin B12, and Vitamin D. Thus, if you are interested in optimizing your diet and/or suffer from depression, it is worth a try.”
