1. Prebiotics and probiotics
According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the good components that are naturally found in your gut are called prebiotics. They aid the growth of healthy bacteria, while probiotics are basically the live good bacteria found in the gut.
To sum things up, if you want to improve your mental health, you need to include probiotic and prebiotic food options in your diet. Foods rich in probiotics include yogurts, kimchi, miso, kombucha, certain types of cheeses, sauerkraut, buttermilk.
Legumes, onions, bananas, berries, and beans are all part of the prebiotic foods category.
