Stanford study links depression to blood biomarker

A new study suggests low levels of a specific biomarker in your blood is linked to the severity and duration of depression.

The collaborative study conducted by Stanford University and The Rockefeller University found people with depression had low levels of acetyl-L-carnitine, which helps the body produce energy.

Although it’s naturally produced in the body, acetyl-L-carnitine is also available for purchase at drug stores and other retailers as a nutritional supplement.
