TikTok-Famous Dietitian Shares The Foods To Eat To Improve Mental Health

Eating well not only helps with sleep, stress and energy, but the foods you add to your diet can also help improve your mental health, according to Samar Kullab , a Chicago-based registered dietitian who shares healthy eating advice on TikTok.

“It’s important to understand that the foods we’re eating can directly affect our brain health by altering the brain proteins and enzymes in order to increase neural transmitters, which is the connections between the brain cells,” Kullab told “Good Morning America.” “Some foods can raise serotonin levels through various enzymes which can improve our mood. They also can decrease inflammation, which is known to affect both cognition and mood.”
