Could Your Diet Be Making You Depressed?

Are you depressed?  

Did you know that diets that are high in refined carbohydrates lead to depression?  This is because a diet high in refined carbs such as cakes, white bread, white pasta, biscuits, crisps, take outs, convenience foods etc. lowers tryptophan a precursor to serotonin.  Lowered levels can lead to depression.

Want to feel better?

Making changes to your eating plan will definitely help.  But to get you in the right frame of mind I highly recommend taking a high-grade fish oil.

Why?

  • Fish oil reduces inflammation
  • Helps heal the gut
  • Helps to produce more serotonin
  • Helps with all known diseases to man
  • Turns on fat burning gene
  • Boosts brain function
  • Lowers cortisol
  • Maximizes strength
  • Lowers leptin levels, this helps t control your appetite

Guideline for dosage:

According to the Charles Polequin Bio Signature system you should take 1-1.5grams of fish oil per % of body fat.

Fact:

66% of neurotransmitters are made in the gut lining.  95% of serotonin is made in the intestines, 90% of which is used by the brain to make you feel good.  Heal the gut, heals the mind.
