September 8, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
It is well established that maintaining a healthy nutritional status is important for optimizing bodily functions and preventing/mitigating many metabolic diseases. However, the role that nutrition plays in mental health is less known. Recent research has shown that diet and nutrition can have significant effects on mood and mental wellbeing, specifically concerning stress, sleep disorders, anxiety, mild cognitive impairment, and neuropsychiatric disorders. Furthermore, data has revealed that proper nutritional intake can preserve normal brain function throughout life via its effects on neuroinflammation. Here at Wellbeing Online we know all this information can come off as confusing, complex, and often conflicting. Thus, let us help you navigate these muddy waters! Join Ramon Sodano, Coordinator of Fitness Services and Adjunct Professor at Washington State University as he summarizes the relationship between nutritional implementation and mental health.
