DEPRESSION - Nutritional Therapy
Studies suggest that people with depression who eat a healthy diet that includes fatty fish (such as salmon, mackerel, herring, and sardines) two to three times per week may significantly reduce their feelings of depression and anxiety. Fatty fish contain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), and many individuals with depression are deficient in this substance.
Some studies suggest that dietary supplementation with docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), one type of PUFA, may help prevent depression. Diets rich in fruits and vegetables, particularly leafy green vegetables, are also Other supplements that may reduce depression include:
Vitamin B9
Vitamin C
S-Adenosinemethionine (SAMe)
