Fighting Seasonal Affective Disorder

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that's related to changes in seasons.

If you're like most people with SAD, your symptoms start in the fall and continue into the winter months, sapping your energy and making you feel moody. These symptoms often resolve during the spring and summer months. Less often, SAD causes depression in the spring or early summer and resolves during the fall or winter months. -webMD

with a range of products we carry at Bloom Naturally

Located in Bloomsburg and Danville, PA.


Help your body fight off symptoms with:


Vitamin D:

Vitamin D supplementation is an easy and inexpensive way

to help reduce the symptoms of SAD.


Fish Oil / Omega-3:

Fish Oil: Oil-rich cold-water fish like salmon, cod, and sardines, fish oil supplements, and some plant-based foods like walnuts contain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which research on other mood disorders suggests have an antidepressant effect.


Folic Acid and B12:

Several studies have linked lower levels of folic acid to higher rates of depression. The body uses vitamin B-9 in a number of ways, including to create serotonin, a feel-good chemical that helps you feel calm and relaxed.

Making folic acid part of your daily routine is as easy as including some foods rich in folic acid into your diet. That includes dark leafy greens, beans, whole grains, oranges, sunflower seeds and lentils. Also, look for breads and cereals enriched with folic acid.


Dark Chocolate

The polyphenols in dark chocolate help elevate your mood and relieve anxiety and depression.

A perfect addition to your work lunch! We have you covered with our extensive selection of dark chocolates.


Berries:

Fruity berries like blueberries, strawberries and raspberries can slow the release of cortisol, a hormone that can affect memories and emotional response in the brain.

By managing cortisol levels, you will likely be more in control of your emotions.
