    Vitamin D and folic acid deficiencies could contribute to depression (2011/12/23)

    While depression may appear increasingly common, similar symptoms can be caused by nutritional deficiencies. Doctors advise that folic acid and vitamin D are both key to emotional balance. And, sufficient exposure to the sun is also another mood-booster.

    Frustration and mild depression are common features in daily life. While contributing factors include illness and genetics, the lack of critical nutrients may also be a cause for feeling blue.

    ReShining Clinic Deputy Director
    I’ve seen six to eight patients recently who lack vitamin D and folic acid. This affects the cerebral regions, and also the conduction of nerve signals.

    Doctors recommend a balanced diet of fish, liver, dairy products and protein, which prevent osteoporosis, heart disease and cancer. Meanwhile, broccoli, spinach, citrus and tomatoes all contain abundant folic acid, which prevents anemia, neural defects, and assists brain function.

    If there is sufficient exposure to the sun for around five to ten minutes a day, and a balanced intake of vegetables and citrus, the condition will improve.

    Doctors added that in addition to balanced nutrition, exercise and getting enough sleep also contribute to emotional health.

    維生素心情

    現代人經常憂鬱或低潮,可能是因為維生素攝取的不夠,導致情緒低調。醫生提醒,葉酸、與維生素D,是平穩情緒的重要關鍵,加上適量曬太陽,就能讓心情跟著開朗起來。

    許多人常常會煩躁鬱悶,但小心引起焦慮的因素,除了疾病、個人體質外,還有可能是缺乏特定營養素,導致心情低落。

    “最近看到6到8個左右有缺乏維生素D跟葉酸的現象,會影響到腦部一些功能,還有神經傳導的運作

    醫生建議多吃像是魚肉、動物肝臟、乳製品、蛋白質等可預防骨質疏鬆、心臟病、癌症。多吃青花菜、菠菜、柑橘類水果、番茄等都富含葉酸成分,預防貧血、神經管缺陷,並幫助腦部正常運作。

    “適度的曬曬太陽,每天曬大概5到10分,適度的補充各種蔬菜,還有一些柑橘類,這種狀況就改變許多”

    醫生提醒,保持好心情,除了補充營養素,還須要有充足睡眠、適度運動。
