Zinc fights depression

Researchers thought that consistently low levels of zinc in the diet contribute to depressive symptoms. In one study of 3,708 men and women, while there was no link in men, women with low levels of zinc in the diet were more likely to have depressive symptoms than were women with normal zinc levels. 

Doctors also found an even greater tendency toward depressive symptoms in those taking anti-depressants whose zinc levels were low.
