Are You Depressed? Maybe It's The Junk Food You're Eating.
02 Apr   by Lisa

Research from the University of Granada and previous studies from the Mayo clinic find that there is a link between eating more non-nutritious foods and a higher risk of depression.  The study has been published in the journal of Public Health Nutrition.
 
How does junk food affect your mental status?  The mechanism is still being targeted however we do know that your gut has been described as having a brain of it's own (click here for more information).  There are many Serotonin receptors in the gut.  Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that helps give you a sense of wellbeing.  Gut health is very important to our overall good health.  We depend on the "good' bacteria in our digestive tract to keep us balanced.  Junk food may hinder this symbiotic relationship.  Find out how you can improve your gut health here.
