What you eat affects your mood as your body signals for essential nutrients needed. Every day we hear from shoppers who want to know what to take to stop them constantly feeling low and flat. Here are a few handy suggestions on what you should do to feel uplifted, energised and happy.

Always ensure that you have a health, well balanced diet. Poor eating could lead to serious illness and the foods we eat will effect our general wellbeing. Eating well and maintaining a regular exercise routine will help ensure that your body functions well. Speck with a health care professional before you make any significant lifestyle changes.

Go fish!

While Fish Oil has been found to aid general health and wellbeing, research has found it could also improve your mind as well. Several Australians have been found to eat less than the recommended dietary amount of Omega 3s. Fish Oil supplements can be used to provide the nutrients essential for a healthy body. Beyond fish itself, foods rich in Omega 3s include walnuts, flax oil and flax seeds.


Iron boost

Iron deficiency can result in tiredness and anaemia, of which young women are especially at risk of. Iron assists the body to produce energy and maintain normal blood health. While there are supplements for people with low levels of iron, be sure to eat plenty of iron-rich foods, such as red meat, poultry, oily fish and dried fruit.
