Content descriptions

Summary: In this video, Dr Matthew Bambling provides an overview of brain metabolism and function and how to maintain and enhance function using supplementation and lifestyle modifications. The later section of the presentation concludes by examining how to assess mental health problems and match these to supplementation and lifestyle interventions. Attention is given to specific issues in brain metabolism and function and modulation of various classes of neurotransmitter systems and their relationship to brain health and mental health. This presentation is ideal for those who want an easy to understand yet comprehensive overview of the role of nutrition and supplementation and lifestyle in maintaining mental health and as treatment for mental health problems. While nutritional medicine is one of the most interesting and important areas to understand and treat mental health issues, it should be understood that the field is rapidly advancing and by definition new discoveries will provide additional information not covered here. Therefore, it is recommended to engage with the material here as a set of principles that can be used to guide your own reading and research in this area to ensure you stay current with the latest developments in the field.
