Could Whole Spectrum Supplementation be the answer to your health?

Depression is so much linked to the lives we are living in our society today... toxic foods, the push for pills first, solutions later, and of course the pollutants in everything around us from the carpet you first crawl on to the bottle of water you are drinking, or even the tap water in your glass. In fact even going to work out can be a judgement zone and cause many of us to isolate ourselves and leave who we want to be behind. Seems like a no win situation doesn't it?

Well you can start to change things for yourself a little at a time. First, make sure you buy product from a company that cares about the way it is manufactured from start to finish - you want a seed to soil transparency. Look for them to be using quality, non-gmo, pesticide-free products, that are safe for you and your family. If you are taking a supplement it has to be the optimal dose to get what you want out of it. Unfortunately when you buy a bag of flaxseeds it doesn't say "For depression, take two tablespoons". Am I right? 

We’ve all had the blues once in while.  But when they happen on a more frequent basis, it becomes cause for concern. But there are ways to adjust your diet to help stabilize your mood. It’s imperative to eat meals at regular intervals in order to keep your serotonin levels in check, a chemical in the brain that has a calming effect.  Good nutrition is your best defense for managing depression.  

Carbohydrates are linked to serotonin production and lack of carbohydrates may cause changes in your mood. This is why when I started the Ketolicious Reset, it was all about getting a lot of plants into our diet.

Here are more food ideas to help you combat depression and kick those blues. 

Rich in omega fatty acids, that is what I like to look for in both my nutrients in my food and in my supplementation. Only with a Whole Spectrum supplement do you get the full fatty acid expression. 

A recent study indicated that people who suffer from depression also have lower levels of the antioxidant vitamin E. CBD outperformed vitamin E to help protect our neurons from stress and inflammation. How cool is that? 
Dark green vegetables like spinach and peas are high in folate, a key player in the production of serotonin.  They’re also an excellent source of vitamin C and fiber. Fresh is always the best option, as canned versions tend to have lower nutritional value. Legumes are also high in folate and protein and low in fat, and are an excellent option for those who are vegetarian or meat-restricted diets.  

Chickpeas are rich in fiber, iron, and vitamin E. For a simple snack, combine a can of drained and rinsed chickpeas with some minced garlic, fresh lemon juice, and olive or canola oil in your blender or food processor. Add salt, pepper and other spices as you wish. The resulting hummus makes a healthy and hearty vegetable dip.

And please, if you’ve been dealing with the symptoms of depression for a while, please contact your doctor to discuss available treatment options and medication that may be available to you. 

Using a Whole Spectrum Supplement

Many people who have anxiety and depression have turned to essential oils as a source of relief from anxiety and depression. Cannabis comes in many forms, such as a Super-Critical CO2 CBD that is legal in all 50 U.S. states and in over 40+ countries, and is THC-Free. People think of the illegal THC marijuana (that gets your high), however this is very different.
