Rene Ficek, a certified dietitian, suggests that each morning, you start the day with eating yogurt. Yogurt is rich in probiotics and that is good for the stomach and intestines. She says that there are studies in which probiotics consumption will make a person’s mood light and the brain tells the body that it is happy. Also, yogurt has the anti-inflammation ability – if the person is free of inflammatory disorders, then, the tendency is that he will be a less depressed individual since he is not sick.
Note: In choosing yogurt, be sure to buy those with “live bacteria” kinds. Not all yogurts out in the market equal, health-wise. Also, if you are intolerant to lactose, then, there are other substitutes like Miso soup, pickles and tempeh.
