DEPRESSION by Mind Map: DEPRESSION

1. DISEASES CAUSED BY NUTRITIONAL DEFICENCY

2. OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS : Omega 3 is needed for reducing inflammation and proper functioning of brain cells . Deficiency of Omega 3 can cause trans fats to enter our nervous system causing irritation in the mind.Our body does not make Omega 3, thus we should have supplements salmon, walnuts etc in our diet

3. VITAMIN B COMPLEX : B vitamins especially Vitamin B-6 and B-12 are known for nervous system benefits. They decrease danger of strokes ,bolster nail development and have a moisturized skin.Lack of B vitamins will enormously influence your psychological well-being. B vitamins are found in fish, poultry, eggs, greens, bananas, whole grains and red meat.

4. EXTRA INFORMATION:1. Serotonin or 5-hydroxytryptamine is a monoamine neurotransmitter. Serotonin is key to our feelings of happiness and it helps defend against both anxiety and depressiontter. 2. Tryptophan is also a precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin and the hormone melatonin.3. In the brain, dopamine functions as a neurotransmitter.4.DNA methylation is a process by which methyl groups are added to the DNA molecule.

5. WHAT REALLY IS DEPRESSION? Feelings of severe despondency and dejection.

6. ZINC : Zinc is required for modulating the brain and body's response to stress. It also balances emotional well being. It's important function is to produce and function neurotransmitters. Due to ZINC's deficiency it causes slow thinking process and low energy.Zinc is found in poultry,raisins,spinach and dark chocolate.

7. NEUROTRANSMITTERS:a chemical substance which is released at the end of a nerve fibre by the arrival of a nerve impulse and, by diffusing across the synapse or junction, effects the transfer of the impulse to another nerve fibre, a muscle fibre, or some other structure.

8. VITAMIN D : Many individuals find that they are more discouraged and grouchy amid the winter months , As levels of daylight reduce during the winter, many individuals encounter a lack in vitamin D — which has been connected to gloom, uneasiness, and low mood known as Seasonal Effective Disorder. Vitamin D can be found in fatty fish, like tuna, mackerel, and salmon, beef liver, cheese, egg yolks and cod live oil.

9. SELENIUM : Selenium is required for thyroid hormone production, protection from toxins and mental prosperity. Selenium is key to one of the body’s master antioxidants, glutathione peroxidase. This complex keeps the delicate polyunsaturated acids in our cell membranes from getting oxidized (rancid). You can discover an abundance of selenium in sunflower seeds, Brazil nuts, in whole grains, nuts, organic fruits, and vegetables, animal proteins, and bivalves such as oysters and clams.

10. IRON : A poor diet or certain intestinal diseases can affect how the body absorbs iron causing iron deficiency anaemia , as iron carries oxygen throughout the blood stream . It can cause depression to one , lack of appetite, irritability, extreme fatigue, headaches and mood swings. If you have low iron levels, it could trigger panic symptoms, leading to a panic attack. Sources of iron include eggs, beans, duck, animal proteins,(beef and chicken liver), mussels, shellfish, nuts like cashews and almonds .

11. MAGNESIUM : Specialists regularly allude to magnesium as the “stress counteractant,” a capable mineral that enables your body to unwind and muscles to relax. One-way magnesium counters stress is by binding to and stimulating GABA receptors in the brain. GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is a primary inhibitory neurotransmitter, one that puts the brakes on brain activity and allows the brain to relax. Top sources for magnesium include kelp and other seaweeds, almonds, spinach, Cashews, black beans, edamame, peanut butter, whole grain bread and avocado.

12. Counteractant : Odor Counteractant. Eliminates unpleasant odors according to the principle of odor pair neutralization

13. Antioxidants : A substance such as vitamin C or E that removes potentially damaging oxidizing agents in a living organism.

14. Glutathione peroxidase : Biological role is to protect the organism from oxidative damage.

15. GABA : Is the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system. Its principal role is reducing neuronal excitability throughout the nervous system.

16. DEPRESSION

17. AMINO ACIDS : Amino acids are obtained from proteins. Amino acids adjust neurotransmitters in our brain and lessens fear anxiety and stress. food which are rich in aminoacids are eggs, poultry and plant based protein.

18. IODINE:Like selenium, iodine is required for thyroid hormone production.When thyroid hormone levels are low, many organs and internal systems slow down, creating a wide range of symptoms — including depression.It helps cerebrum execution and reduces memory loss .You can discover iodine in crude cheeses, iodine-improved salt, egg yolks, saltwater fish, sea vegetables.

19. CEREBRUM:the principal and most anterior part of the brain
