Eating Tomatoes Can Keep Depression Away
Tomatoes contain natural folic acid and alpha-lipoic acid, both of which are good for fighting depression. Clinical study data have shown that an elevated incidence of folate deficiency in patients with depression. In most of the studies, about one-third of depression patients were deficient in folate. Folic acid can prevent an excess of homocysteine which restricts the production of important neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine from forming in the body. Alpha-lipoic acid helps the body to convert glucose into energy and therefore stabilizes mood.
