Five Foods That Help With Outer Beauty

Seafood

Seafood is a highly consumed food in Africa and there is early evidence to support adequate intake of 8-12 ounces per week with a cognitive boost and mood enhancement due to the essential omega-3 fatty acids. Try adding more salmon, mackerel, sardines, and shellfish to your plate, or algal oil if you are vegan or vegetarian.


Avocado

This nutrient-packed fruit is filled with vitamin B6 and magnesium, a combo that may help with serotonin production in your brain. Adding avocado slices to omelets, salads, and even smoothies will also help you get more fiber and healthy fats in your diet.


Beans and Legumes

Chickpeas, lentils, beans, and legumes also provide antioxidants, vitamin B6, and magnesium. They are protein-rich powerhouses, so try them as a swap for red meat in saut├ęs and stir fry's.


Whole Grains

Prebiotics, meanwhile, fuel your body’s probiotics so they can survive and thrive. Find them in 100% whole grains like oats, barley, and bran, as well as various fruits, vegetables, and beans. Eating more of these foods helps serotonin receptors in your GI tract function properly and they've been linked to reducing the risk of chronic disease.


Pumpkin Seeds

An ounce of pumpkin seeds provides nearly 20% of your daily value of magnesium, plus potassium. Sprinkle these seeds and nuts, like walnuts, peanuts, pistachios, and cashews on your meals or snack on them plain for a nutrient boost.
