Sweet Solutions

"High sugar intake and depression go hand in hand.
Instead try these.
Honey. It contains traces of B vitamins, folate, iron,
and manganese, in addition to 181 different bioactive
compounds such as quercetin and caffeic acid, which boost
energy production in the brain.
Pure Maple Syrup. It contains minerals such as manganese,
zinc, and calcium. But we mean real maple syrup- not cheap
stuff, which is a mix of high fructose corn syrup and
caramel-colored dye.
Blackstrap Molasses. This was the most popular sweetener
in the United States until the 1880's. It contains vitamin
B6, magnesium, manganese, calcium, selenium, and more iron
than a chicken breast."
