Improve Your Mood With Good Food

Looking for a natural mood booster? It could be as simple as topping up your breakfast with some berries or taking your Daily Shot!

When it comes to eating to nourish and fuel your body it could compare to building a campfire...

When building a campfire we want to build it to burn for some time. If we just used kindling it would fire up but burn out too quickly. Mixing in sticks and logs will build a fire that will burn slowly and steadily. Our bodies are the same! Eating nutrient-filled food is key for brain performance - including mentally and emotionally.

 

What foods are mood boosters?

A study in Great Britain found “a dose-response relationship between daily servings of fruits and vegetables and both life satisfaction and happiness.” The more fruits and veggies participants ate, the greater levels of happiness they experienced. Those who got up to seven or eight servings a day “reported the highest life satisfaction and happiness.”

 

Could eating plants improve happiness on their own?

High levels of vitamin C are found in many fruits and vegetables, which is an important factor in the production of dopamine, a chemical messenger in the brain that creates feelings of pleasure and reward. The antioxidants in fruits and vegetables reduce inflammation, which can also lead to higher levels of well-being. How many servings do I need? To notice a meaningful change of mood most of the literature suggests between 7 and 8 servings.

 

Need to top up?

A daily Double Shot contains 3 servings of leafy greens and 6 servings of fruit and veg antioxidants!

“So many things I love about my shots, but the best one is the energy, no afternoon slump, I am noticeably more active and really noticed a difference the one time I forgot to take my afternoon shot!!! Haven’t had a cold this year either.”

Amanda Beauchamp

“We love the increase in energy! I have been taking both shots throughout my pregnancy and I am yet to really get sick this winter! I'm sure my body is thanking me for the extra nutrients at this time.”

Anna

“For me, it's actually the peace of mind that me and my vege-adverse 7 year old are getting some greens to help keep up healthy. I also noticed my skin had an extra glow and less fine lines too.”
