Depression Hurts – Digestion Can Help

Depression Hurts – Digestion Can Help

October 1 2010 | By NSP

Digestion is a subject most people feel uncomfortable discussing, but we all deal with it. 

And did you know that digestion can considerably affect a person’s mood? 

Science is beginning to more widely recognize the strong connection between the gut and the brain, as it is in the gut that significant hormones such as *serotonin are produced.

Digestion problems can change the production of hormones—the chemicals that tell the brain how to feel.  Therefore, imbalanced digestion could mean imbalanced chemicals—ultimately jeopardizing our emotional stability. 

As anyone works towards stabilizing his or her digestion, it’s important to remember that our bodies are designed to be active.  Increasing your physical activity may play a role in helping your body maintain regular digestion. 

It would also be beneficial to consider taking a Digesting Supplement if you’re frequently battling feelings of depression, sadness and guilt, you may be suffering from the effects of *serotonin deficiency.  *Serotonin, also known as the “feel good hormone,” stimulates the body to be motivated and active.  As the sun sets, *serotonin is converted into melatonin—a hormone that triggers sleepiness.

Many people who suffer from *serotonin deficiency have high levels of melatonin.  These higher levels contribute to the symptoms of depression.  So, it’s important to make sure that your body has proper levels of *serotonin in order to feel the benefits of the “feel good hormone.”

If you find yourself suffering from symptoms of depression, consider focusing on your Digestive Health even taking a *serotonin-boosting supplement that works for you.

It’s necessary that we do our best to take care of one of the most important systems in our bodies—the Digestive system.

Digestive health plays a key role in every aspect of the body’s functions. It can even determine the way we feel on several levels.

It is the digestive tract that absorbs all of the necessary nutrients required to live. A healthy Digestive system helps determine a person’s quality of life because it can combat depression and disease, and fortify the body to live a long, active life!
