Description
Severe and prolonged stress exposure impairs homeostatic mechanisms, particularly associated with the onset of depressive illness. Brain food is aimed at preventing as well as treating a growing number of depression. An increase in brain tryptophan levels on the order of that produced by eating a carbohydrate-rich/protein-poor meal causes parallel increases in the amounts of serotonin released into synapses. Dietary antioxidants present in fruits and vegetables may also improve mood. Furthermore, lifestyle of breakfast, lunch and dinner with family or friends is a very important factor to reduce depression.
