How Sugar Causes Depression & Anxiety

How Sugar Causes Depression & Anxiety

Individuals in countries that consume more sugar have higher rates of depression and schizophrenia.  How sugar causes depression, anxiety, and schizophrenia, is in two ways. Inflammation and reduced brain cell function.

How Sugar Causes Inflammation, Depression & Anxiety

Sugar consumption causes inflammation in the gut, body, and brain, which sets off an inflammation-immune chain reaction response resulting in depression anxiety.

Sugar does this by feeding harmful gut bacteria, such as h. pylori, which causes damage to the gut, allowing food particles and toxins to enter the bloodstream, body tissues, organs, and brain.

In 2011 Hungarian researchers conducted a meta-study and found that recent studies have revealed that inflammation, among other factors, may be involved in the pathogenesis of depression. 

One line of studies has shown that depression is frequently associated with manifest gastrointestinal inflammations and autoimmune diseases as well as with cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, type 2-diabetes and also cancer, in which chronic low-grade inflammation is a significant contributing factor. 

Thus depression may be a neuropsychiatric manifestation of a chronic inflammatory syndrome. Inflammation from over consumption of sugar not only causes depression, anxiety, sugar inflammation can also cause several other conditions and diseases, including arthritis, MS, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and more.

Sugar, beyond helping other toxins enter the brain via indirect gut inflammation, can pass through the blood brain barrier itself and cause depression anxiety in two ways.  Excessive sugar causes the release of cytokines which enter the brain and produce an inflammation response.

Inflammation in the brain increases the synaptic gap between nerve cells, reducing the ability of neruotransmitters in the hippocampus region of your brain, responsible for learning, memory, mood, to connect and perform their functions.

If you are slow, have trouble remembering simple things, can’t concentrate, have brain fog, it could be due to brain inflammation, caused by too much sugar consumption, interfering with brain cell communication.

Antidepressants, the very common SSRI variety, try to overcome the inflammation induced synaptic gap, by increasing the amount of the neurotransmitter serotonin in your brain. Antidepressants do not try to fix the cause of inflammation and depression anxiety.  They only try to find a fix around the inflammation induced synaptic gap.

To use a non-scientific analogy, antidepressants do not try to fix the leaky dam causing the inflamed river, the antidepressant response to depression anxiety is to simply try and build a longer bridge over the swollen river.

How Sugar Causes Depression & Anxiety by Disrupting Brain Cell Function

The other way sugar causes depression anxiety is by inhibiting the production of BDNF, brain derived neutrophic factor, a brain hormone which is responsible for the growth and connection of neurons in the brain.

Lack of BDNF from sugar consumption reduces the creation of brain cells in the region of your brain responsible for depression anxiety, and like inflammation, reduces the ability of brain cells to communicate and function properly.

Sugar has a double negative effect on depression anxiety.  Therefore, it is important to limit the amount of sugar intake, to achieve depression anxiety recovery.

How to Limit Sugar for Depression & Anxiety Recovery

We get sugar into our diet in lots of ways.  There is the unrefined white sugar we are all familiar with, but there is also high fructose corn syrup, cane sugar, beet sugar, agave, honey and other sugars found in packaged and processed foods.

Wheat breads, pastas, potatoes, rice and other carbohydrates are converted into sugar.  Fruits fruit juices contain a lot of sugar as well.  Our modern diet is filled with sugar. It is extremely important for depression & anxiety recovery that you reduce the amount of sugar you eat from all sources.


You can replace sugar with stevia. Stevia is a herb that has many health benefits. Stevia will help you to gradually lose your sugar cravings. To find out more about stevia's health benefits, look at the page Stevia. A Herbal Sweetener on my website.
