• You Become What You Eat

    By -

    No matter how happiness there is in the world, there will always be days when we feel so glum. If the darkness stays with us every day, wow…one can only imagine what the world would become. Perhaps no one would be able to rescue anyone who is planning to jump off any building or cliff as no one would care out of being lost, or no one would comfort any one and worse, tears might flood the roads although that is definitely just an exaggeration.

    But what if you were told that the reason for your depression is not just mental or caused by your “happenings”—it’s basically what you eat?

    Findings of research now link depression to inflammation caused by poor diet. Monosodium glutamate (MSG) and aspartame included in certain foods are said to possibly be the cause behind depression symptoms, disorders in behavior and even suicidal tendencies. Take note of the following information:

    For example, a 2008 paper titled Inflammation, Glutamate, and Glia in Depression: A Literature Review notes that “Multiple lines of evidence suggest that inflammation and glutamate dysfunction contribute to the pathophysiology of depression.”

    In the book Excitoxins: The Taste That Kills by retired neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock, he emphasized that excitoxins actually contribute to chronic inflammation of the body which are not only disease- and disorder-causing food ingredients but particularly affects the brain in a degenerative manner.

    MSG, free glutamate foods, aspartame and others in this category may make food tasty, tastier, tastiest, but they are behind bouts of depression. Hence, if you are prone to dark spells, you may want to check your diet. At least you will have a reason not to blame it on a break-up or a lay off at the office or even your physical assets—it can be the diet after all.

    Just like what they said: you become what you eat.
