A few years ago, a friend of mine lost her son-in-law due to suicide due to extreme depression over the loss of his wife to cancer. And then, shortly later, another friend shared with me that a friend of hers just lost her 32 year old son to suicide. Although I didn’t know either one of these young men personally, every time I hear of someone who has committed suicide….my heart truly breaks!
I can’t even imagine what their families are going through. And I can’t help but long for the ability to go back in time, and try to help them. I believe the one of the main reasons for suicide is depression and two of the main causes of depression is STRESS and OUR DIET!
Now keep in mind….stress can come from a number of sources, i.e. your job, staying too busy, going through an extremely emotional event, as in the death of a loved one, or not succeeding in life as you hoped for, whether it be on a spiritual, financial or emotional level. Stress can even come from happy events…as in the planning of a wedding, the birth of a child or a vacation! All of these things, to name just a few, cause stress. And it is a fact….when a person is stressed they dramatically deplete the B vitamins in their body. This depletion leads to many things, depending on how depleted they become….everything from being irritable, emotional, craving sweets, being impatient and yes….even depression…. again, to name just a few.
And the results of stress are even worse than they were 100 years ago because not only does our food no longer contain the amounts of B vitamins it use to, but so many of us eat foods that actually cause you to deplete the existing B Vitamins in your body, i.e. sugar, caffeine, and processed foods! I mean, think about it….the majority of Americans eat WAY TOO MUCH of these foods, along with their kids, and they have no idea how harmful it can be, not only to their physical health, but also their emotional well-being!
I believe, with all my heart, that this combination of too much stress, not getting enough B vitamins in our food along with most of us staying depleted due to our diet, has left SO MANY PEOPLE mildly or severely depressed! Even our kids and teens are showing excessive signs of anger and impatience, due to this malnourishment of B Vitamins, which I talk about more in a previous post. Click HERE to read that post.
For this reason I am literally begging you, the reader, to think about anyone you know who might be going through stressful and/or emotional times, and possibly showing signs of depression and highly encourage them to consider adding a quality B-Complex supplement to the daily routine. Shaklee’s B-Complex is very unique in that it has all the B Vitamins in a complex form and it’s been formulated to get absorbed better than any other B Vitamin supplement on the market! It is soooo amazing….. if you are in the middle of an emotional crisis or a fit of anger…..by simply taking 2 of Shaklee’s B-Complex supplements, in just 15 minutes most people feel MUCH, MUCH better, happier and relaxed! The amount needed by each person is a based totally on how much stress they have in their life. Two a day is a good place to start, but some people might do even better taking one 3-4 times a day. It is truly an amazing product and I feel like it could make a HUGE difference in the life of someone who is overly stressed and/or depressed! And like I always say….”it doesn’t get rid of the stress in your life, it just helps you deal with it and handle it with less emotion, while keeping your sanity and a smile on your face!”
Who do YOU know who MIGHT benefit from taking a quality B-Complex supplement? Perhaps a friend, a family member, a teen (maybe even perhaps one who is dealing with being bullied)?
