The effects of food can contribute to or exacerbate depression. Hundreds of years ago if you were depressed you were labeled as “mad” or “possessed.” In the modern ages; however, doctors have learned that psychological disorders explain most of these disturbances. Today, millions of people in North America experience different levels of depression, but sometimes it can be explained by a person’s diet.

More researchers are reporting that certain kinds of foods, when consumed in excess, can create the feeling of depression.

It turns out that foods low in cholesterol, sugars and fat, but also high in protein, can reduce the production of serotonin, which is best described as our brain’s happy transmitter. If the happy transmitter is low, naturally you will be depressed. Studies also indicate that people with blood sugar problems, low vitamin D, and food intolerance issues can also battle depression.
