Could There Be a Link Between Nutrition and Mental Health?


Diet influences numerous aspects of health, including weight, athletic performance, and risk of chronic diseases, such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes. According to some research, it may affect mental health, too.
Anxiety and depression are among the most common mental health conditions worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO)Trusted Source, depression could be one of the top health concerns in the world by 2030.

Nutritional psychiatry is an emerging area of research specifically looking at the role of nutrition in the development and treatment of mental health problems.The two main questions that researchers are asking in relation to the role of nutrition in mental health are, “Does diet help prevent mental health conditions?” and, “Are nutrition interventions helpful in the treatment of these conditions?”

The study of nutrition and how it affects mental health is ongoing.
And while more research is needed, current studies suggest that we may have some influence over our mental health through our food choices.Still, we need to keep in mind that diet is just one piece of the much more complex topic that is mental health.
As a result, it is important for anyone who is experiencing depression or anxiety symptoms or has general concerns about their mental well-being to work with a trusted healthcare provider to develop a personalised treatment plan (Medical News Today, 2021).
