Diet for Depression | MED Simplified | Foods Good for Mood disorders

Depression is common illness worldwide and it is estimated that more than 264 million people across the globe suffer from depression and it the second leading cause of death in the 15-29-year age group. Depression affects many people, and it can be life changing. Medical treatment and counselling can often help relieve symptoms, but lifestyle remedies, such as a healthful diet, can also boost a person’s well-being. Diet is such an important component of mental health that it has inspired an entire field of medicine called nutritional psychiatry. This field of medicine has studied that, what we eat matters for every aspect of our health, but especially our mental health and it also explores the effect of nutritional changes. Inflammation in the brain is thought to be a major cause of mental health illnesses and this inflammation can come about from a long period of poor eating. Healthy eating can protect against this inflammation in the brain and can even improve your cognitive function, which is a fancy word that describes your ability to attain new information, reason with people, remember things and pay attention. One analysis concluded that a dietary pattern characterized by a high intake of fruit, vegetables, whole grain, fish, olive oil, low-fat dairy and antioxidants and low intakes of animal foods was apparently associated with a decreased risk of depression and a dietary pattern characterized by a high consumption of red or processed meat, refined grains, sweets, high-fat products, butter, and low intake of fruits and vegetables is associated with an increased risk of depression. Well in this video we will discuss seven such types of foods that will help to combat depression and other mood related disorders. JOIN OUR CHANNEL ON YOUTUBE
