Nutrition and Depression

Nutrition may have the potential to affect a person's risk of depression, its symptoms and its severity. Some aspects of nutrition that may be associated with depression include omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins C and E, folate, alcohol, caffeine, and overall style of diet such as the "western" diet containing processed foods and high quantities of sugar.
