Why The Rainbow Diet
Is Good For Your Mental Health
A rainbow diet is an eating approach that focuses on consuming a wide variety of colorful fruits and vegetables.
The goal of a rainbow diet is to include foods that represent the entire spectrum of a rainbow, from red and orange to yellow, green, blue, and purple.
Each color signifies specific vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals that enhance mental resilience and reduce risks of mental health disorders.
Nutrients like folate, vitamin C, and omega-3 fatty acids found in colorful foods have been linked to reduced risks of depression and anxiety.
Many colorful foods (such as blueberries, spinach, and sweet potatoes) are rich in antioxidants that protect brain cells from oxidative stress and inflammation.
Colorful foods provide probiotics and fiber that nourish beneficial gut bacteria, positively influencing mood and stress regulation.
Certain compounds, like flavonoids and carotenoids, in the rainbow diet are believed to influence neurotransmitter production and neural pathways.
