Higher Consumption of Omega-3’s May Help Support Improved Mood

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in regulating mood. Previous research has found that omega-3’s help serotonin in work better in the brain. Now a new study has found that consumption of omega-3’s may help support improved mood.

Participants in the study included 14,014 adults who took part in the Longitudinal Study of Adult Health ELSA-Brazil. Dietary omega-3 consumption was calculated using food frequency questionnaires. The Clinical Interview Schedule Revised was used to incidences of depressive episodes.

The researchers found that participants who consumed the most omega-3’s had the lowest risk of developing depressive episodes. Higher consumption of total fatty acids was associated with a 9% reduced risk of depressive episodes and higher consumption of alpha-linolenic acids with a 29% reduced risk.

The study was conducted by researchers from the University of Rio de Janeiro. It was published online ahead of print on August 7, 2022 in the journal Nutrients.

In a previous study, liquid apple cider vinegar may help reduce depression symptoms.
