Doctors from King’s College in London came to the conclusion that people whose diet consists of healthy food, more often get rid of chronic depression than lovers of fatty foods. The results of their research are published in the journal Psychosomatic Medicine .
According to experts, this effect is especially pronounced if patients not only follow a diet, but also begin to play sports.
Such conclusions were made by British doctors after 16 studies were analyzed, the authors of which followed changes in the diet, mood and physiological state of the volunteers. About 46 thousand people participated in the experiments, some of whom suffered from depression.
According to scientists, the transition to the Mediterranean diet and ten other types of healthy food helped about a third of the subjects to get rid of depression or significantly reduce the severity of its symptoms.
