Gunjan Tewari | Lata Pande | Kamal Kishor Pande

Abstract: Holistic health involves competent physical, mental, social, and spiritual components. As the incidence of mental health problems advances among the global population, it becomes pertinent to look into alternative methods of their prevention and treatment. As diet is an essential part of our daily life, it is easier to make modifications and understand its linkage with mental health if adequate awareness is generated. This review presents an analysis of the significance of mental health, various problems associated with it, and nutrients that directly or indirectly affect the ascent of these problems. Studies suggest that adequate nutrition is positively correlated to mental health, no matter where one lies in the spectrum. Therefore, it becomes important to understand the evident linkage between nutrition and mental well-being and recognize gaps in current knowledge.
