Zinc for Depression

Posted by LeMec on June 12, 2011, at 10:31:33


I recently read a study where researchers gave depressed patients zinc supplements in addition to their antidepressants. Link:

So I decided to try Zinc at 200mg a day in addition to my Wellbutrin, and the results so far have been encouraging. At day 3 I feel like I have more energy, my sleep quality has improved, and most strikingly the rumination and anger that had hitherto dominated my thoughts has declined significantly.

I've also noticed improvements in muscle strength and lung function leading me to believe that I may have been Zinc deficient.

Zinc deficiency can be correlated with depression since depression increases sugar cravings and sugar depletes Zinc in the system.

Anyone else had luck with Zinc?
