Get Well Gift Basket - Depression Relief
A relative or friend suffering from depression needs a lot of love and support. Our Depression Relief Basket can help you express your care and concern while helping to relieve their depression symptoms.
We provide foods containing complex carbohydrates, folate (folic acid), magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids--all of which have shown to decrease symptoms of depression.
Foods such as broccoli and oatmeal are excellent sources of complex carbohydrates. As complex carbohydrates may boost serotonin activity in the brain, we've included a delicious Broccoli Soup along with steel-cut oatmeal.
People who are depressed are often deficient in folic acid. This vitamin appears to reduce the high levels of homocysteine associated with depression.
The magnesium found in spinach, chocolate, and almonds may ease depression symptoms by acting as a muscle relaxant. The sources we chose are dark chocolate and almonds.
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega 3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid that is the building block of human brain tissue. Low levels of DHA have been associated with depression. For this reason, we've included Smoked Salmon--a fantastic source of omega-3 fatty acids.

Unforeseen high demands may occasionally necessitate an item substitution in a basket. The substitution will always be of equal or greater value. In addition, we reserve the right to suspend the shipping of chocolate when temperatures could cause melting. Typically we substitute other products for chocolate from May-September, but unusually warm weather my necessitate substitutions at other times of the year.
