The Best Mood Boosting Food Choices


There are no magic foods or ingredients that will leave you in a fantastic mood. However, a combination and variety of vitamins and minerals have been revealed to be beneficial in boosting sustained energy and mood throughout the day. 





Sunflower seeds

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 is involved in the making of the neurotransmitters that improve mood and anxiety.

Brazil nuts


Selenium is a mineral that is vital for cognitive function. A single Brazil nut will have a positive impact.



Zinc is a mineral that is essential for an effective immune system.

Shiitake mushrooms

Vitamin D

If possible leave your mushrooms in the sunshine for half an hour before eating – this will further increase the mood-boosting vitamin!


Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 enables the body to absorb energy from your other food.


Complex carbohydrate

Complex carbohydrates encourage growing levels of serotonin – the feel good hormone.


Vitamin B1

Vitamin B1 helps to reduce anxiety and boost happiness.

Dried apricots


Iron reduces your risk of developing anemia, which is linked to low mood.



Chromium aid in the function of insulin production, enabling a regulated and steady blood sugar level.
