Winter Blues Seasonal Affective Disorder

winterblues

Every winter the way we may feel, seasonal affective disorder or SAD. During winter months with less sunlight in addition to a depressed mood, sad, includes cravings for carbs, inability to concentrate, irritability, weight gain etc. Sunlight stops melatonin production in the body, and darkness starts it.

Sunlight is usually missing in the winter months, when light is absent, the pineal gland activates two of its natural enzymes to turn the hormone serotonin into melatonin. Serotonin keeps us from being depressed, stops craving sweets & carbs. when melatonin kicks in, normal serotonin activities are reversed, the pineal gland gets insufficient sunlight.
