If you follow an unhealthy diet, your gut will soon let you know. It’s important to remember that the intestine is an organ where lots of significant hormones are produced. For example, serotonin, a hormone of happiness, is produced in the small intestine.
If you feel depressed and experience gut problems, try to control the amount of zinc that you consume (it’s also responsible for healthy digestion). Zinc is contained in:
- wheat germs
- cheese (especially ricotta, cheddar, mozzarella, and gouda)
- meat (especially liver and beef)
- seafood (especially oysters)
This sign indicates one of the most common issues when it comes to hormonal problems. These hormones are responsible for our metabolism and if a hormonal imbalance occurs, it can cause depression. If you think your thyroid is failing to work normally, you should go visit an endocrinologist.
In most cases, the reason for this is a lack of iodine in the body. But even if we eat many products containing iodine, it may still not be enough. So it’s recommended to take iodine supplements (don’t forget to consult your doctor first).
