Sources of Dietary Fiber Are Differently Associated with Prevalence of Depression

Frequent intake of fiber from mushrooms and seaweeds may help to ward off depression.

The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of the consumption of high fiber diet on the prevalence of depression. Researchers matched dietary choices with the incidence of depression in a study cohort comprising of 2,960 Korean men and women within the age bracket of 19-64 years. 

Researchers discovered that the odds of experiencing depression dropped significantly among habitual consumers of fiber from mushrooms and seaweeds. "This was the first study to find that higher intakes of seaweed and mushroom fiber were associated with a lower likelihood of depression in a representative cohort of Korean adults, indicating that the specific source of dietary fiber may be an important dietary factor in modulating depression," the authors wrote.
