Mental Signs of B12 Deficiency that Go Unnoticed:

B12 deficiency is common. Due to the lack of critical micronutrients, deficiencies are linked to brain shrinkages and Alzheimer’s. However, new research has shown that the nutrients provided by the Mediterranean diet are linked to better brain aging. Getting more B12 nutrients starts with spotting the signs of a deficiency in the first place. Signs include feeling tired, experiencing muscle weakness, and constipation.

How Body Mass Index (BMI) Might Impact Brain Health:

According to a new brain imaging study, as a person’s weight goes up, all regions of the brain go down in activity and blood flow. This is compelling evidence that obesity alters blood supply to the brain—and is considered a major advancement since it directly shows how the brain responds to our body.

What to Know About the Changing Landscape of Mental Health Care: 

Australia is experiencing a shortage of antidepressants due to an unexpected increase in demand. The shortage of one medication, in particular, Nardil, is the most worrying: it’s an older drug used by a small number of patients, usually because it’s the only drug that works for them. Patients who use any antidepressants which are unavailable should consult their doctor.
