Mood swings and permanent lows sometimes have a very simple background. Many foods contain additives that can negatively affect our mood. Even cherished little “sins” like to have a lasting impact on our mind and can even trigger depression. Even supposedly “normal” foods such as grain rolls, biscuits, margarine or coffee sometimes conjure up a bad mood blues. They contain trans fatty acids, sugar, wheat or caffeine, all of which trigger unpleasant body feelings and have a negative effect on the psyche. Basically, you should pay attention to a healthy, fresh and balanced diet. The extensive eating of the following 5 nutrients can ensure a better mood.
Sugar is considered very unhealthy food. It triggers diseases such as diabetes, makes you fat and, according to experts, contributes significantly to the development of cancer, stomach ulcers and digestive disorders. It is so aggressive that people who have never encountered sugar would immediately spit it out as it causes a burning sensation in the mouth. By triggering countless negative reactions in the body and having a very unbalanced effect on the organism, it also triggers many emotional and mental dysfunctions. Irritability, mood swings, confusion, anxiety and even insanity can be triggered by sugar.
Aspartame is a sugar substitute found in many foods. Artificial sweeteners are considered an alternative to conventional sugar in foods for diabetics or people with weight problems. Unfortunately, aspartame has come under criticism in many ways. In addition to all sorts of serious illnesses, the chemical is also said to cause headaches, ringing in the ears, nausea, fatigue and indigestion. Recommended sweets would be natural honey or coconut sugar.
White flour or wheat flour has had a bad reputation for a long time, and rightly so. Avoiding it entirely is considered a real challenge since wheat is used in countless products such as pasta, muesli, frozen meals and soups. In order to be happier, extensive renunciation is inevitable. Wheat is responsible for tiredness, insomnia, hunger pangs, hyperacidity and mood swings.
Hydrogenated oils are most commonly found in finished products and improve flavor and shelf life. During the production of hydrogenated oils, trans fatty acids are formed which are difficult to digest and have a negative effect on cholesterol levels. Bad moods and feelings of confusion are not uncommon from too much hydrogenated fat. Healthy alternatives are cold-pressed, vegetable oils such as coconut oil or olive oil.
