Potential breakthrough in the fight against depression | Fox News Video.

A “natural” hormone called Ghrelin is currently being researched in mice through clinical trials.  It is a “hunger” hormone that is secreted from the stomach and sends a signal to the brain that you are hungry.  It also affects your brain in regard to memory and mood.  Finally, it creates some new nerves.

Scientists believe that by using a booster, it will increase the hormone Ghrelin.  *The key, is to NOT have an increase in the desire to eat (as Americans eat enough as it is!).  It can be a major breakthrough not only for depression, but other diseases such as Parkinsons and Alzheimer’s.  It is an exciting step forward for the 1 out of 10 Americans who suffer from depression and thousands of others who suffer from degenerative diseases.
