Why Food Could Be Your Best Medicine

Take Charge of Your Health With Food

The famous Greek physician Hippocrates quote, “Let food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food” has stood the test of time.

Food is medicine. Eating healthy food heals your mental and physical health. Food regulates your moods, your sleep, and directly affects your longevity. The effects of stress and aging can be regulated by what you eat.

Six Ways To Eat Your Way to Better Health

Eat Breakfast

Eating breakfast increases your metabolism which helps keep your weight down and helps with your mood swings.

Add Omega-3 Fatty Acids to Your Diet

Research shows omega-3’s help with anxiety, stress, and depression. Eat as much fish, nuts, and other foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Some examples include salmon, mackerel, walnuts, and tuna. You can also take omega-3 fatty acid supplements.

Increase Your Vitamin B6 Intake

Vitamin B6 increases the serotonin in your body. Serotonin calms and heals the body. Make sure you eat bananas, tuna, turkey, salmon, rice, sweet potatoes, or sunflower seeds.

Eat More Blueberries

Blueberries should be called “brain berries” or “youth berries” because they are great for the brain. These berries help grow neurons and help them communicate as well.

Eat More Tomatoes

Tomatoes have a very important nutrient: lycopene. Lycopene helps reduce the risk of cancer heart disease.

Eat More Broccoli 

Adding bite-size broccoli bits to your salad or having steamed broccoli for dinner can do your body a world of good. Broccoli has nutrients that reduce cancer risk and heart disease and boosts the immune system.
