Dr Oz: Mood Superfoods
Doctor Oz talked with Rosie O’Donnell about her Weight & Health Challenges.
Now he’s showing how you can incorporate Superfoods into your daily diet, to help improve your mood, lower your stress level, and feel better and healthier.
One audience member said she is always stressed about bills, and she tends to hide in bed when she is feeling down. Dr. Oz said Superfoods such as Kefir Milk, Asparagus, and Oranges could give her a pick me up.

Dr Oz: Kefir Milk & Anxiety
I had never heard of Kefir Milk until Dr Oz mentioned it. Kefir Milk contains Probiotic Yeast and good bacteria. Plus, it’s loaded with Tryptophan, just like you find in Thanksgiving turkey, which is a mood booster (it just makes me want to take a nap, which is another mood booster).
According to Dr. Oz, this product can help you keep your levels of Seratonin high. You can find it in the dairy section of your grocery store, and you can use it in recipes like Iron Chef Mashed Potatoes.
Dr Oz Superfood: Asparagus Prevents Mood Swings
Asparagus is good for you in a lot of ways, and it’s more versatile than you may realize. Did you know you can use fresh Asparagus and use it as part of your morning Omelet? Just cut off the tips and stems first.
This Superfood can help you keep your mood stable throughout the day. Dr Oz had someone from the audience try the Omelet, and she loved it. What happens to the audience members who hate whatever the show’s guests make? Do they disappear?
Dr Oz told the woman to smell her urine after the show, which looks totally creepy when you read it. But Asparagus can actually cause an odor in your urine after you eat it. It’s nothing to worry about, but it happens enough that people know about it. Still, I can’t imagine a circumstance in which I’d instruct someone to smell their urine. Maybe I don’t have what it takes to be a doctor.

Dr Oz Superfood: Oranges Fight Stress
You probably know that Oranges are loaded with Vitamin C, but did you know that Vitamin C is great for managing your stress levels? Oranges also help keep your blood pressure low, which is important to your overall health.
Dr Oz said you can easily slip an orange into your purse so you have it with you when you need it. He suggested eating it an hour before a stressful situation, such as an important work meeting or test at school. Just be sure to wash the citrus smell off your hands before shaking hands with someone important.
