There is tons of evidence linking diet and mental health issues such as depression.
A number of studies found omega-3 fatty acids may be beneficial in the treatment of mild to moderate depression.
Incorporating fish in the diet several times a week may help. Examples of fish high in omega-3s include sardines, salmon, herring, trout, and canned white albacore tuna.
Supplements are a good substitute as well. Keep in mind not all supplements are created the same.
The omega-3s found in the fish we eat come in the form of free fatty acids, phospholipids, and triglycerides. When converted to a supplement omega-3 fatty acids are mostly present as triglycerides.
You can also find non-fish derived omega-3 supplements. Plant sources such as soy, walnuts, canola oil, and chia, flax, and hemp seeds and their oils contain omega-3s. Flax oil is often used for vegetarian supplements.
