Joining the dots between diet and mental health with Dr Joanna McMillan

One in five Australians experience a mental health disorder - so can what we eat make a long term difference to our mental and brain health? In this podcast, we chat to Dr Joanna McMillan to learn the latest on nutrition, mood and brain health. Joanna delves into the science behind the brain-healthy components of the Mediterranean Diet and highlights the importance of focusing on dietary patterns, not individual foods or nutrients, to optimise mental wellbeing. We also touch on the link between the gut microbiome and mental health, where polyphenols and flavonoids fit in and how dietitians can help their clients eat themselves happy.
