Are you looking for ways to improve your mood? Just like your physical health, your mental and emotional health are also heavily influenced by having the basic building blocks of cellular health on the ready in your bloodstream and brain to make and sustain your mental health.

What are the basic building blocks of cellular health? We’re so glad you asked! According to Dr. Carolyn Dean the building blocks of cellular health are the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids your body’s living cells and mitochondria use to create your well-being.

Common mood disorders are easily recognized and so are their causes:

  1. Anxiety and depression are related to magnesium and vitamin D deficiencies
  2. Vitamin B6, B12, and folate deficiency are related to cognition, memory loss, and anxieties.
  3. Dehydration can cause major mood swings along with fatigue, irritability and headaches.
  4. Omega-3 fatty acids are necessary to create the cell membranes of nerve cells in the body and the brain.
  5. Zinc deficiency is clinically proven to play a significant role in depression.
  6. Other minerals such as calcium, chromium play supportive roles as well.

The bottom line: hundreds of researchers around the world have found that the biological processes of the body, as well as many aspects of the brain require nutritional building blocks a healthy mood!

If you are struggling with emotional imbalance, irritable moods, and mental health challenges, you may try to cope by overeating, smoking, drinking alcohol, taking street drugs, or other addictive behavior to distract yourself from your problems. We are a nation suffering with an increasing incidence of anxiety, depression, and drug problems. Yet if you go to a doctor, Instead of treating stress reactions properly with magnesium, each year, millions of people are introduced to the merry-go-round of psychiatric drugs and psychological counseling for symptoms that may in fact be rooted in magnesium deficiency.

SO how do we use vitamins and mineral to stabilize our mood and support our mental health and clarity? “The way to begin a vitamin and mineral regime is to recognize your deficiencies and adjust accordingly,” says Dr. Dean.  Magnesium, vitamin C and trace minerals will support the adrenal glands, vitamin B, zinc, calcium and magnesium have all been proven effective to reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, vitamin D – sunshine in a bottle – has wonderful mood-elevating benefits, and low potassium has been linked to mood changes and low energy levels.

Other healthy easy-to-do strategies for mood management include giving thanks for what you have; getting outside in the sun and fresh air; practicing mindful movement; deep breathing exercises, and not listening to the news! You should shut off menacing media in your home and in your bedroom!!! Listening to the evening news while you eat or before you go to bed will keep your mind and body in a state of agitation that is simply not healthy. It may be the first step to balanced mental health!
