Natural Remedies for Depression

1. Eat healthy 

Did you know that eating healthy could improve your mood. There are some foods that can help with serotonin, the chemical in the brain that contributes to “happy.” Helping to raise those levels naturally, some foods are serotonin enhancers. Food like:

  • Fish-oil, rich in Omega-3 fatty acids
  • -Healthy fat, such as coconut oil
  • -Flaxseed oil
  • -Sour cherries
  • -Eggs

2. Drinking green tea 

Green tea has one other extremely important constituent: L-theanine and L-theanine works synergistically with caffeine to boost mood in such a way that you don’t get the same crash-effect. It is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, and has been shown to reduce stress as well as boost dopamine and the brain inhibitory transmitter GABA. We recommend to steep a cup of hot, fresh, green tea with your breakfast. 

3. Workout 

Exercise is fundamental to mood. Even just a fifteen minute walk through the neighborhood does wonders because, exercise releases endorphins in the brain, and endorphins are what make us feel good and happy.

4. Magnesium
Magnesium is the 4th most abundant mineral in the body that is supplemented through diet. We wouldn’t produce energy, we couldn’t synthesize DNA or RNA, or regulate our heartbeats without magnesium. It is recommended to take a supplement, or follow the best route-add magnesium rich foods to your diet. Try eating the following :

  • -1 ounce of dry roasted almonds or cashews: 20% DV
  • -1/2 cup of cooked black beans: 15% DV
  • -1 medium banana: 8% DV
  • -1/2 cup of boiled spinach: 20% DV
  • -1 cup of soymilk: 15% DV
