Role of Mediterranean Diet and Physical Activity in the Prevention and Treatment of Depression

Author(s) JYOTI

Abstract The Mediterranean diet, characterized by an abundance of whole grains, plant foods, olive oil and moderate intake of fish has been associated with a variety of disease outcomes. The Mediterranean diet is recognised as a healthful dietary pattern and has been extensively associated with chronic disease risk reduction. Consumption of food groups in the Mediterranean-based diet has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties which improves endothelial function and neuronal membrane composition. Engagement in physical activity, on the other hand, has anti-inflammatory and neuro-chemical effects that sustains cerebral blood flow, improves aerobic capacity and cerebral nutrient supply, and improves secretion of enkephalins and endorphins secreted during exercise.
