The Best Antidepressants

03/21/2020, 22:59:00


Just recently I came across and article by Devon Frye (2020) about "the best antidepressants." More and more these days we fortunately turn towards nature and natural resources, environmentaly friendly resources, a.k.a. healthy resources. Scientists (Laura LaChance of the University of Toronto and Emily Tarleton of the Northern Vermon University) researching treatment of depression with nutritional interventions concluded that four particular components are fundamental: omega 3s, curcumin, vitamin C, and magnesium. Is not it interesting that all of them are linked to reversing inflammation? Inflammation may spark depression but also during coronavirus pandemia, risk of inflammation is something we want to prevent, minimize, and ideally avoid. Laura LaChance listed several items to add on our shopping lists:

Plant Foods

- watercress , spinach, and swiss chard

- mustard, turnip, or beet greens

- peppers 

- papayas, lemons, and strawberries 

Animal foods (I am vegetarian/vegan and I really tried to list up all the animal foods, I can't.... so I am limiting it to......:O)

- seafood! - oysters, clams, and mussels, crab, lobster, and fish roe
