New research indicates that the right combination of foods and nutrients can serve as a shield against stress, anxiety, depression, and a wide range of other mental health issues.

According to a report in the American magazine Time, diet plays a significant role in human mental health. The magazine recently published a report on research in the field of ‘nutritional psychiatry,’ conducted by psychiatrists examining the effects of various foods on human mood and behavior.

According to the report, the emerging field of ‘nutritional psychiatry’ demonstrates the crucial role of diet in human mental health. The Magazine Time noted that studies have shown that individuals who consume more fruits, vegetables, legumes, olive oil, and fish are less likely to be at risk of depression compared to those who do not consume these foods. According to this research, the consumption of such dietary items may even be more beneficial for mental health than social support.

According to a Time report, there might not be a direct link between what we eat and how our brains function. Felice Jacka, a director at Deakin University’s Food and Mood Centre in Australia, explained that the human body is a complex system where the body and brain are in continuous communication.

The report also highlights that various forms of physical activity can improve mental health, and global health authorities, including the World Health Organization, recognize the importance of nutrition in this context.

Jacka notes that the human digestive system houses trillions of microbes that break down food and interact with various parts of the body. Time reported that a recent study on mice found that specific bacteria in foods like yoghurt were linked to lower stress levels and a reduced risk of anxiety and depression-related problems.
