Abstract:The article discusses the relationship between omega-3 fatty acids and mental depression. In addition to being an important structural component of brain cells, omega-3 fatty acids can reduce the production of the most potent inflammatory chemicals. These fatty acids can lower stress hormone production and maintain levels of the brain-derived neurotrophic factor, an antidepressant chemical in the brain.
