Diet for Depression & Anxiety

Key Points
*Diet at your own risk. For informational purposes only*

Gut inflammation is correlated strongly with depression

  • Cut out sugar & refined cards
  • Supplement with a probiotic or eat fermented foods and drinks
  • Turmeric is one of the strongest anti-inflammatories. I supplement with Merica Turmeric.  Black pepper increased ‘uptake’ of standard turmeric
  • Consider cutting out diary and gluten. These can cause inflammation in some
  • Eat nutrient dense foods like broccoli, spinach and kale
  • Consider a magnesium supplement. I’ve found this very effective
  • Supplement with fish oil and vitamin D3 in the winter
  • Consider intermittent fasting – 16 hour protocol – Stop eating at 8pm and eat again from 12pm the next day.  Be very careful however and build up to the full 16 hour fast.

I also drink 10g of glutamine first thing in the morning as this supposedly helps heal and protect the gut lining.

I also drink diluted apple cider vinegar about 15 minutes before main meals to help digestion

NAC powder is also effective for some in reducing gut inflammation
