Calcium for Depression



If you are depressed, you need calcium to protect your bones.

Scientists at Jerusalem's Hebrew University have discovered that depression causes the body to release a chemical called noradrenaline. This chemical, useful during times of stress or danger, weakens bone-building cells during depression.

A high calcium diet is necessary for strong bones and to prevent osteoporosis.

Extra calcium is needed while on a low calorie diet as well.
