Diet and depression

A Finish researcher recently published a study investigating the connection between diet and severe depression.

The study analyzed 3 other Finnish studies that collectively had over 3000 participants, and they analyzed consumption of:  folate, vitamin B12, serum concentrations of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, coffee, tea, and caffeine.

The research indicated that diet, especially a healthy diet rich in folate, and a dietary pattern rich in vegetables, fruits, berries, whole-grains, poultry, fish, and low-fat cheese, may protect against depression.

This research confirms what we continue to say: nutrition affects our mental health.
