Did you know people are beating depression without pharmaceutical drugs? Try adding these depression-busting foods to your regular diet to feel better.
A study published in Phytotherapy Research recently said that the bright yellow spice turmeric isn’t only good at treating depression, it may do it better than the antidepressant drugs being pushed down our throats.
2. Green Tea
The health benefits of green tea are seemingly endless, from improved heart health to better brain function. So, it’s no surprise that it can help regulate moods. It contains something called L-theanine, an amino acid that can help in the creation of alpha brain waves.
A lack of omega-3 fats in your diet can lead to mood imbalances including depression. By adding fatty fish to your diet, you can correct any possible imbalances and reap the other benefits of omega-3 fats.
4. Nuts and Seeds
Magnesium is a mineral found in abundance in certain nuts and seeds. It can boost your mood by increasing energy production and also stimulating the production of serotonin—one of the brain’s feel-good chemicals. Healthy fats also boost overall health and help stabilize blood sugar. Pumpkin seeds and brazil nuts are particularly good choices.
