This presentation will include the findings from current studies relating to some of the nutraceuticals and bioactives as well as adherence to different dietary patterns that are used in the management of mental health. Some of the common nutraceutical approaches include green tea components (e.g. theanine and EGCG), curcuminoids and main anthocyanins found in blueberries.
