In case you missed it in print a couple issues back, hit up our website right now (link in profile) to check out our piece on Backbone Cafe! Contributor Lovelle Harris writes, "This newly minted eatery in downtown Sacramento boasts a menu chock full of organic, whole food options to fit a variety of dietary preferences—including meat options, but the grass-fed, free-range variety only. What you won’t find are refined sugars or sweeteners, soy products or peanuts in any of their handcrafted dishes..." Read. Learn. Eat rad things. Photos by Evan E. Duran.
Prescription pills are often prescribed for injuries, medical or dental procedures, and pain. However, these pills can often be unsafe even when taken as prescribed. Be sure to ask your doctor or pharmacist about pain management alternatives, as well as any questions you might have before filling your script. #beintheknow
It's no secret that bananas are an excellent source of dietary fiber, they protect against type II diabetes, aid weight loss, strengthen the nervous system, and help keep blood sugars steady. Give me more 🍌 please. I also just read bananas can actually help cure depression. 🤔 NEWS FLASH — not everything you read on the internet is true (shocker, I know 🤷🏼♀️). Being the skeptic I am, I did some research — I’m a nerd, the only knowledge that’s power is applied knowledge.
The fruit does contain tryptophan, which converts into serotonin - a type of chemical in our brain that influences mood. But, so do nearly all protein-based foods; bananas do not provide a unique or particularly significant source needed to “help cure depression”. What I did find was this:
People who suffer from depression commonly lack energy and struggle to concentrate. Norepinephrine, a brain-related chemical known as a neurotransmitter, stimulates brain activity and enhances alertness and concentration. Your body requires both tyrosine, an amino acid, and vitamin B6 in order to manufacture norepinephrine; bananas provide both. Although eating bananas will not immediately restore your energy, it can help ensure your brain activity isn't hindered by a lack of norepinephrine.
Insomnia is another common symptom of depression. Foods that contain tryptophan can help a person fall asleep more easily. Hence, eating a banana shortly before going to bed at night may help reduce insomnia.
So do bananas help cure depression, no. But, do they help offset some of the common symptoms, that’s a yes from me.
Did you know — Shellac, the stuff used to create a shiny, anti-chip manicure, is derived from a female Keria Iacca (an insect native to Thailand). Where can you find shellac if it’s not on your beautifully manicured fingers? Try candy. Shellac makes hard-coated candy look shiny (think jelly beans and candy corn).
