How to combat stress with good nutrition

Recommendations and links to the PTSD Association of Canada

People routinely go on diets to lose weight, build muscle, or feel more energetic. Few people look to nutrition for a healthier and fitter brain despite the fact that the brain is the most important organ in the human body. Here's some good news: a healthy neuro-nutritional diet is good for your mind and your body. With a healthy and common sense diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, nuts and seeds, and spices and herbs, you can improve your moods and cognitive function, help reduce the risk of cognitive decline due to aging and provide healthy nutrients to the rest of your body. Healthy neuro-nutrition can help improve your brain's ability to change as well as its ability to create new neurons.
