[사진=클립아트코리아]
It is a time of cloudy and humid weather ahead of the rainy season. Depression symptoms can be aggravated at this time, so it is good to eat foods that help relieve symptoms, including light exercise. In this regard, based on data such as EverydayHealth.com, we will look into foods that relieve depressive symptoms.

◇Walnut

It contains the highest amount of omega-3 fatty acids among plants. Several studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids support brain function and reduce symptoms of depression.

◇Berry

Berries such as blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries contain a lot of antioxidants. According to a study, depression symptoms significantly decreased after two years of antioxidant intake in depressed patients. Antioxidants also have the effect of repairing cells in the body and preventing diseases including cancer.

◇Mushroom

Mushrooms are good for your mental health for two reasons. This is because it contains ingredients that help lower blood sugar, stabilize mood, and contain probiotics (live bacteria) that promote healthy gut bacteria.

A healthy gut is important because nerve cells in the gut produce 80-90% of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that plays a role in keeping the mind intact.

◇Onion

Onions, as well as leeks, such as green onions and garlic, have the effect of reducing the risk of several cancers. Experts say that frequent consumption of onions and garlic reduces the risk of cancer of the digestive tract.

These vegetables are also high in flavonoid antioxidants, which have anti-inflammatory properties. Knowing the link between the digestive tract and the brain can help explain why foods that help fight gut-related cancers are also good for the mind.

◇Tomato

It contains a lot of folic acid and alpha-lipoic acid, which are good for fighting depression. Studies have shown that about a third of people with depression have a folate deficiency. Folic acid prevents excess of homocysteine, an amino acid.

Homocysteine ​​is an amino acid that limits the production of important neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine. Alpha-lipoic acid also helps the body convert glucose into energy, thereby calming the mind.

◇ legumes

It is a good food for preventing diabetes and losing weight. Beans are digested slowly, stabilizing blood sugar, so they are good for the mood.

◇Apple

Like berries, apples are rich in antioxidants that have the ability to prevent or repair oxidative damage and inflammation. They are also high in fiber, which helps to balance blood sugar.
