New Research: Fruit and Medication

Do you like strawberries? raspberries? blueberries? how about chocolate, personally I like all four with a preference for chocolate and strawberries and double cream, …Yummy Yummy… These particular fruits are a great way to ease depression, Yeh.. you read it right the first time.

It would appear on the face of it scientists from the University of Mexico say these fruits could be a front-line defense for those who suffer depression.

These particular fruits have a natural ingredient that closely resembles valproic acid which along with sodium valproic, is used as a mood stabilizer in people who suffer a manic-depressive disorder.

However, this new research should be flagged as cautious. Researcher Karina Martinez-Mayorga said:

“It is important to remember that just eating foods that may improve mood is not a substitute for prescribed anti depressive drugs.”

It is well researched that a healthy lifestyle can enhance moods. However, if you do take medication for the treatment of depression do not attempt to replace your medication with this new research.
