Nutricion y salud mental

Un artículo sobresimplificador y remanido (además de peligrosamente antifármacos) pero del que se puede sacar alguna recomendación.

Four brain chemicals -- serotonin, catecholamine, GABA and endorphin -- are essential for proper mental health, each affecting a different area of the brain. Some of us, unfortunately, have a genetic predisposition to lack these chemicals. Additionally, the modern mainstream diet is deficient in the amino acids that our brains need to make these neurotransmitters. As a result of these factors, incidence of depression and anxiety has reached epidemic proportions.

Achieve optimum mental health by supplementing deficient brain chemicals instead of resorting to dangerous antidepressant drugs
