Depression – Food for the Brain

When your diet is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, research has shown that your brain functions more efficiently and your mood may improve. Omega 3

Why is Omega 3 Good for Depression?
Overfed and overweight, it seems unlikely that most Americans would be deficient in fat. But there is one we are missing: Omega-3 fatty acids. It is thought that this deficiency may cause or worsen depression in some people. While researchers don’t recommend Omega-3s as a first-line treatment for anyone with major depression or bipolar disorder, emerging research suggests it may be effective for people with mild depression or as an addition to medication. Omega-3 supplements affect the brain through a different mechanism than antidepressants, so adding them to an antidepressant regimen is “attacking the illness from a different front,” according to Dr. Mischoulon an Associate Psychiatrist at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Omega-3s and postpartum depression
Though studies have yet to confirm it, one promising use of Omega-3s may be the treatment of postpartum depression. Evidence shows that women who develop postpartum depression tend to have an Omega-3 deficiency, and because pharmaceutical antidepressants can be harmful to the fetus and child (through breast-feeding), physicians are hopeful that Omega-3s will prove to be an effective preventive treatment during pregnancy.

So maybe you don’t battle with depression. Here are some other benefits that Omega 3’s can offer the body:
-Improves artery health by helping to reduce plaque buildup and blood clots in arteries that lead to the brain.
-Improve cholesterol by lowering triglycerides and elevating HDL (good cholesterol) levels. 
-Improves joint and bone health.
-Improves skin health.
-Helps prevent cancer. Colon, breast, and prostate cancers have all been correlated with low intakes of omega-3’s.
