Improve your mood by digging in your garden! Hunting and gathering the fruits of your labor also add to your your happiness level.
Serotonin and Dopamine are 2 natural anti-depressants that also boost your immune system. We didn’t need science to tell us that Gardening makes us happy, but it’s always fun when science catches up with women’s wisdom.
Here are the facts:
– Lack of serotonin in the brain causes depression.
– Soil contains Mycobacterium vaccae, a bacteria that triggers the release of serotonin in your brain.
-Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, found in our the soil, waters, plants — and in non-organic Roundup-ready GM cotton — depletes your serotonin and dopamine levels. Depression is a global epidemic right alongside Monsanto’s worldwide sale of Roundup.
The Immune System Link
Soil bacteria cause immune cells to release chemicals called cytokines, which activate the nerves that relay signals from the body to the brain. The stimulated nerves cause neurons in the brain to release serotonin into the prefrontal cortex, an area of your brain involved in regulating your moods.
Let Your Kids Spend More Time Getting Dirty!
Studies link early childhood exposure to bacteria to protection against allergies and asthma in adulthood, suggesting that bacteria-exposure boosts your immune systems and alters your vulnerability to conditions such as depression as well.
TIP: Garden without gloves and get your hands into the dirt and compost heap.
