We all know that omegas 3, 6, 7 & 9 fatty acids are essential for good health, and omega-3 fatty acids play a critical role in the development and function of the central nervous system. There are more and more studies emerging indicate that the consumption of omega-3 fatty acids (alpha-linolenic, eicosapentaenoic, docosahexaenoic) can assist with major depressive disorder. Evidence from epidemiological, laboratory and clinical studies suggest that dietary lipids and other associated nutritional factors may influence vulnerability and outcome in depressive disorders.
Depression is undoubtedly a dangerous illness, can be life threatening if left untreated. There are various factors that can contribute or lead to depression, such as neurobiology/physiology, genetics, life stressors, and environmental factors. While much attention has been given to genetics and life stressors, more and more research are being conducted focusing on nutritional influences on depressive symptoms. Collectively, the results indicate that nutritional influences on MDD are currently underestimated. Omega-3 fatty acids in particular represent an exciting area of research, with eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) emerging as a new potential agent in the treatment of depression.
