There is a protein in dairy that has been linked to mental illness issues including schizophrenia and depression. I know it tastes good, especially if your family grew up on it.

3) Sugar has been added to the depression department. In case you did not know already: Sugar can be very addictive. It is like any other drug: The more you eat, the more you want. You begin to go through withdrawal once you start weaning off of sugar. Sometimes that withdrawal, regardless of how small or large, can contribute to feelings of depression. That is why it is important that you monitor the sugar intake if you are facing depression. Learn more about Neurocore at Crunchbase.
