^^^^^ Will not a multi-vitamin with minerals -like for us old dotards- work just as well?

There has been a constant supply of research about vitamins and minerals, along with good nutrition, that leads me to believe that a multi-vitamin with minerals "daily supplement" is wajib.

Recently (July 26, 2018)  there was a post at the Wall Street Journal that I would like to point out. Along with regular exercise, a healthy sleep pattern, seeing a therapist and taking your medication if prescibed, there are some foods that some doctors recommend. Nutritional-psychiatry specialists Dr. Uma Naidoo of Harvard Medical School and Dr. Drew Ramsey of Columbia University have recommended the following nutrient-dense foods that fight agains anxiety and depression.

BEANS such as small red beans contain B vitamins, thiamine, iron and magnesium.

FERMENTED FOODS such as kimchi and pickles contain probiotics.

FRUITS such as berries and avocados (yes, that’s a fruit) contain potassium, B vitamins, vitamin C and magnesium.

LEAFY GREENS such as spinach and kale contain magnesium, iron, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin E and B vitamins.

LEGUMES such as lentils contain magnesium, B vitamins, zinc and iron.

MEATS such as grass-fed beef and organ meats contain vitamin A, B vitamins, zinc and iron.

NUTS AND DRUPES such as walnuts and cashews contain magnesium, omega-3 fats, zinc, B vitamins, vitamin E and selenium.

OILS such as olive and fish contain omega-3 fats and vitamin E.

SEAFOOD such as wild salmon and anchovies contain zinc, iron, B vitamins, omega- 3 fats, magnesium and selenium.
