Mood Foods Poised to Realize Potential as Recession Deepens

March 1, 2009: 05:48 AM EST
Mood foods may be the next big thing as the economic recession continues to affect people’s mental health. Economic woes are a leading cause of anxiety and depression in today’s world, and many people find they can’t afford a regular therapy program. This opens opportunities for the increasing range of remedies targeted at mood disorders such as anxiety, which are often exacerbated by lack of sleep. Products that promise to promote relaxation are poised to expand as people become increasingly aware that good sleep is as important to health as food and exercise. Dietary supplements and functional foods that have “mood-lifting” properties are ideally placed to benefit from the rising demand, particularly for people with milder symptoms. Promising advances are being made across the spectrum of products available, including vitamins and minerals, fatty acids, amino acids and proteins, herbs and botanicals, carbohydrates, and specialty ingredients. Products will have to be science-based and fast-acting to be successful.
