Depression

The human body functions amazingly well, There are built-in mechanisms that control the acidity of the stomach and various fluids. Another mechanism controls blood pressure, and another regulates the amount of glucose allowed in the blood stream, regardless of the food eaten. Other mechanisms ensure that enough calcium is present in the blood to participate in nerve transmission and heart beat regulation. When these mechanisms begin to malfunction, whether from age, disorder, injury, or poor diet and other lifestyle factors, we see high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and diabetes.

While many people understand the connection between nutrition and a physical disorder state, fewer people are aware of the connection between nutrition and depression. Depression is more typically thought of as strictly emotional or biochemical. Nutrition, however, can play a key role, both in the onset, severity, and duration of depression, including daily mood swings. Patterns may include skipping meals, poor appetite, and a desire for sweets. People who follow extremely low carbohydrate diets also run the risk of feeling depressed or blue, because the brain chemicals that promote a feeling of well-being, tryptophan and serotonin, are triggered by carbohydrate rich foods. Anti-depressant drugs like Prozac also target serotonin production.

How and which carbohydrates affect mood and depression is not very clear. And, some people tend to be more sensitive to the quality and quantity of carbohydrates eaten. Refined carbohydrates, primarily sugar and sugary foods, tend to provide immediate, but temporary relief. Once the benefit is gone, you may go looking for more foods to bring up your mood and energy level. Complex carbohydrates, such as whole grains, cereals, breads, pastas, and fruits and vegetables, are more likely to supply a moderate, but lasting effect on brain chemistry, mood, and energy level.

Depression is also linked to a lack of certain vitamins, especially the B vitamins which are used in nervous system function; many persons do not get enough in their diets. A less than adequate intake may produce subtle changes in mood, even before a deficiency could develop. B6 also plays a role in the brain chemical production of serotonin. People who are depressed have low levels of B6 and serotonin. Certain drugs, such as hormone replacement therapy, oral contraceptives, and anti-tuberculous medication can interfere with the body's use of B6 creating a borderline deficiency.

Other B vitamins also participate in mental health. Folic acid deficiency can cause personality change and depression. Vitamin B12, at just marginally low levels can contribute to depression and memory problems. Folic acid not easily destroyed by cooking, but is most abundant in leafy green vegetables- an often under consumed food group. As we age, vitamin B12 may not be absorbed as readily, even if the recommended daily requirement is met through the diet. Minerals that play a role in the development or prevention of depression, irritability, and mood swings include calcium, iron, magnesium, selenium, and zinc.

Food plays a key role in maintaining mental health. Foods to eliminate or eat in moderation include sugar and sugary foods, and caffeine. Get into the habit of eating at least three times a day, including breakfast, replace sweets with fruit and whole grain carbohydrates, eat lean sources of protein several times a day, and drink plenty of water. Focus on a well-balanced diet, including plenty of leafy greens for folic acid, and bananas, avocado, chicken, greens, and whole grains for B6.

How vitamins and minerals affect your moods

Discovery to relate mental illness to diet occurred, when it was found that pellagra (with its depression, diarrhea, and dementia) could be cured with niacin after that it was shown that supplementation with the whole B complex produced greater benefits than niacin alone. Evidence of biochemical causes for mental disturbances continue to mount .Experiments have shown that symptoms of mental illness can be switched off and on by alerting the vitamin levels in the body.

Even normal, happy people can become depressed when made deficient in Niacin or Folic acid.

British Journal of Psychiatry found that forty eight out of fifty nine psychiatric patients had folic-acid deficiencies. Other research has shown that the majority of the mentally and emotionally ill are deficient in one or more of the complex vitamins or vitamin C .And even normal people have been found to become depressed and experience other symptoms of emotional disturbance when made niacin or folic-acid deficient

  • Magnesium - The anti-stress mineral, necessary for proper nerve functioning
  • Manganese - Helps reduce nervous irritability
  • Niacin -Vital to the proper function of the nervous system
