New research shows there is a strong link between higher levels of nutrient intake and better mental health. In the February issue of the Canadian Journal of Psychiatry, researchers observed dietary habits in adults diagnosed with mood disorders. Intake of major nutrients, including carbohydrates, fat, and protein, as well as individual nutrients, including vitamins and minerals were examined. The results showed that the vitamins and minerals in participants' diets were consistently and reliably associated with their mood scores. Significant correlations were found with calories, carbohydrates, fiber, total fat, linoleic acid, riboflavin, niacin, folate, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, pantothenic acid, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, magnesium, and zinc. According to researchers, it was way beyond what you would expect by chance. The consistency and reliability was remarkable.
