Help them shake the blues with our Cheer Up Healthy Gift Basket. Certain foods can help boost mood naturally, and our unique gift basket provides a great selection of treats that will have them smiling in no time. No matter if they lost their job, are going through a divorce, or are feeling down due to an illness, everyone loves and appreciates our cheerful baskets.
We provide foods containing complex carbohydrates, folate (folic acid), magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids can help lift spirits and help you feel more optimistic.
People who are depressed are often deficient in folic acid. This vitamin appears to reduce the high levels of homocysteine associated with depression.
The magnesium found in spinach, chocolate, and almonds may ease depression symptoms by acting as a muscle relaxant. The sources we chose are dark chocolate and almonds.
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega 3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid that is the building block of human brain tissue. Low levels of DHA have been associated with depression.
Soy has been shown to help elevate mood as well as nuts and seeds. Nuts such as walnuts, hazelnuts, cashews, and almonds, as well as most other nuts and seeds can all help contribute to a sense of well being associated with happy people.
