Diet full of Veggies, fruits and whole grains curbs depression risk, according to the new findings obtained from the latest research performed by a team of US researchers monitoring moods and diets of about 1000 people averagely 81 years old.
Previously, many of the researchers have highly recommended a diet containing vegetables, whole grains and fruits to get more health benefits such as healthy heart, weight loss and many more. But, the new research has revealed that a diet full of Veggies, fruits and whole grains curbs depression risk. The research has been released today and scheduled to be presented at the 70th Annual Meeting holding by the American Academy of Neurology during April 21 to 27, 2018 in Los Angeles.
New research shows that, people who strictly follow the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet are more likely to potentially have reduced risk of depression as compared to the people who don’t adhere closely to such diet.
Moreover, the DASH diet also suggests low-fat or fat-free dairy products as well as limits on meals that includes highly saturated sugar and fats. Along with helping reduce the risk of depression condition, the study also has added health benefits like lower blood pressure, bad cholesterol (LDL) and weight loss.
Study’s leading researcher, Laurel Cherian from the Rush University in Chicago said in a statement that, “Making a lifestyle change such as changing your diet is often preferred over taking medications. Future studies are now needed to confirm these results and to determine the best nutritional components of the DASH diet to prevent depression later in life and to best help people keep their brains healthy.”
