Products that can improve mood in winter

(ORDO NEWS) — Doctors talked about what kind of foods should be added to the diet in winter so that there is no bad mood. They noted that many people experience seasonal affective disorder (SAD) during the cold season. As a result, a depressive state, fatigue, apathy, obesity, cognitive impairment may develop.

SAR appears under the influence of various factors. The most common cause is an insufficient amount of vitamin D in the body. The level of serotonin can also drop noticeably, the level of melatonin changes. In most cases, women face this problem.

The American Psychiatric Association noted that symptoms mostly occur in the fall and winter when there is not enough sunlight outside. The condition improves when spring comes. The most difficult period for patients is January and February.

People who are faced with SAD are forced to visit a psychologist, as well as take fairly strong antidepressants. Therefore, nutritionist Juliana Tamayo talked about how to make symptoms less severe with food.

Cereals help solve the problem very well. Most of them contain a huge amount of fiber, vitamin B12, folic acid. It is these substances that allow you to most effectively deal with depression.

Vitamin B12 plays a very important role in mental health, therefore, with its deficiency, lethargy and anemia begin to appear. Folic acid helps create new cells and regenerate what is already there.
