Mercola: Exploring the Biological Variables That Promote Mental Health – Dr. Axe Interviews Dr. Mercola

Mercola Videos

Mercola video: I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Dr. Josh Axe on the Ancient Health Podcast (video above). The focus of the interview is the link between emotional wellbeing and physical health. As noted by Axe, the mental health of Americans has nosedived over the past five years, and while there are many contributors to that, one of the factors that I’m most passionate about exploring is the biological variables.

• There’s a strong connection between your body’s ability to create cellular energy and your mental and emotional health. When cellular energy production decreases, you have less energy overall, including for brain processing.

• Seed oils and processed foods are rich in linoleic acid (LA), which can impair brain function by causing oxidative stress and the formation of toxic metabolic byproducts.

• Sun exposure is a foundational strategy for optimizing your vitamin D level, which is essential for overall health, including brain function. Near-infrared radiation from the sun also boosts mitochondrial energy production.

• Maintaining an adequate glucose intake is also crucial for brain function.

• Glycine, found in collagen, reduces neuronal excitability, improves sleep quality, and supports cognitive function, mood and neurological health, while choline in egg yolks is a precursor for acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter for the parasympathetic nervous system.
