The World Health Organization views mental health as: “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
Therefore mental health is more than an absence of autism, dementia, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety. Mental health is complex. It can be impacted by personal experiences, the environment, accidents, exercise, personal behavior choices, and nutrition.
Even with all these variables I believe nutrition is a primary foundation for optimizing long-term mental health. Proper nutrition provides the brain ith the necessary building blocks it requires to function at peak performance.
