Dietary Practise Considerations in Anxiety, Depression & ADHD
Our Co-founder Purwa Duggal was invited by IAPEN Mumbai chapter for a webinar to share her expertise on Dietary Practise Considerations in Anxiety, Depression & ADHD which was attended by over 180 participants. Good mental health is integral to living a healthy balanced life. Our mental health is responsible for how we think, feel and behave each day. Making the right nutritional choices can impact our mental health. A healthy wholesome diet comprising of whole grains with plenty of fruits and vegetables have been found to be associated with lower incidence of depression and anxiety. This is because what we put on our plate serves as a raw material for our neurotransmitters responsible for signal transmissions. Compromising on healthy stuff indirectly results in compromising our potentials. Hence, both quality – quantity along with gut health are important for ensuring the desired health.
