Sad without zinc

Zinc deficiency plays a big role in causing depression. Studies find that depressed people have lower concentrations of zinc in their blood – the greater the deficiency, the greater the depression too. The good news is that zinc supplementation effectively reverses the problem. Zinc plays multiple roles in regulating the hippocampal and cortical glutamatergic circuits that help with both mood and cognitive function. Not only this, but zinc has antioxidant properties and helps maintain endocrine balances and good immune function. Zinc deficiency is also a factor in vascular and cardiovascular disease which are comorbid to major depressive disorder. Never take zinc oxide internally. I recommend zinc gluconate or glycinate.

Drugs won't cure a zinc deficiency! Only zinc cures a zinc deficiency.
