Drink With Your Mental Health in Mind, Advises an Article by Mental Health America Featured by Western Washington Medical Group

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 14, 2014

“You've probably heard the expression, 'You are what you eat,' but what exactly does that mean?” This question was posed in an article by Mind Your Health and recently featured on Western Washington Medical Group’s blog regarding how people should select what they drink with their mental health in mind.

According to the article, individuals who consume large amounts of caffeinated beverages are placing themselves at a high risk of dehydration and consequent negative health effects.

The article explains the effects of dehydration by saying, “Studies show that even mild dehydration can cause fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and mood changes, in addition to physical effects like thirst, decreased or dark urine, dry skin, headache, dizziness and/or constipation.”

Yet, the article does concede that it would be difficult for most people to give up caffeine altogether. Therefore, they advise that coffee and tea consumption be kept to the wise amount of one cup a day.

Between coffee and tea, the article also explains that tea is the better choice because it contains antioxidants that, “protect body tissues and prevent cell damage.”

The article wisely advises, “Food is fuel, and the kinds of foods and drinks you consume determine the types of nutrients in your system and impacts how well your mind and body are able to function. Proper nutrition is imperative for maintaining good mental health.”
