Depression affects one in five women and one in 10 men, so that it is estimated that there are only 1.2 to 1.5 million people with depression in Spain. According to the specialists of mediQuo, the 24/7 medical chat where to consult directly with doctors and health specialists, the consumption of trans fatty acids of the “base” or industrial pastry, saturated fats and red and processed meats is a risk factor to develop a depression

In recent years studies have proliferated to learn how the diet influences certain diseases and the most studied are those related to mental health, such as depression.

 

According to the Spanish Society of Psychiatry, between 10 and 15% of the population will ever have a depressive picture in their lives. Depression affects one in five women and one in 10 men, so that it is estimated that there are only 1.2 to 1.5 million people with depression in Spain.

It is a disease with many unknowns as to its causes. In fact, it is believed that the cause is not found in a single factor, but in the combination of several risk factors. Among them are diet, sleep or exercise. Specialists mediQuo, 24/7 medical chat where you can consult directly with doctors and health specialists, explain how food can affect the development of depression.

“The answer to how the diet can influence our mood to the end of being a reason to develop depression or anxiety, we find it in what is known as entérico nervous system (SNE)”, say specialists mediQuo. The SNE is the part of the nervous system that regulates the digestive system and is found in the layers of the digestive organs. Hence the close relationship of mood with diseases such as irritable colon syndrome or symptoms such as diarrhea, constipation or gas accumulation. Blog de divulgación científica

So, “Can a diet cure depression or other mood diseases?”The response of specialists mediQuo It's NO. There is no evidence that a given diet can cure depression, although it should be borne in mind that an unsuitable diet (like a sedentary life or a bad sleep habit) may pose a risk factor to develop it.

Thus, the consumption of trans fatty acids (food ‘base’ or industrial pastry), the low consumption of Omega3, keeping a Western diet pattern with high consumption of saturated fats and red and processed meats can be predisposing factors to suffer a depression.

“What would be the right diet to prevent depression and other mood disturbances?”Specialists mediQuo recommend:

  • Follow traditional diet patterns, such as the Mediterranean diet.
  • Use olive oil to cook and dress salads.
  • Reduce meat consumption, recommending white meat instead of red or processed meat.
  • Prepare homemade tomato sauce, garlic, onion and spices with olive oil to season vegetables, pasta, rice and other dishes.
  • Avoid consumption of butter, cream, fast food, sweets, cakes and sweetened drinks with sugar.
  • Moderate consumption of red wine (two drinks a day for men and a daily cup for women).
  • Increase the consumption of fruits, vegetables, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
  • Take foods rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids with Omega3. These fatty acids are mostly found in: blue fish, seafood, nuts such as almonds and nuts, tofu and some vegetable oils.
  • Avoid processed and fast food, as well as excess simple sugars.

In short, it can be said that there is no diet that cures mental health-related pathologies such as depression or anxiety. But a healthy, varied diet, based on fresh and seasonal products, accompanied by physical activity and a correct sleep pattern (in short, maintaining healthy lifestyle habits) is beneficial to avoid these disorders.
