Supplementation Benefits Mood
Publication date: 12 February 2013
A recently published meta-analysis showed that vitamin and mineral supplementation benefits mood.
Here's a link to an article by the US-based Life Extension Foundation that summarises the research:
Meta-analysis is the gold standard in research. Essentially a meta analysis compounds the data from a number of studies on a given topic so that you get an averaged picture. Although some studies might be excluded on quality grounds, the point is there is no cherry picking of only the results that support the position you want to take.
If the research had shown the opposite result, I'm sure it would have been headline news. As it is, the mainstream media will I think ignore it.
I'm offering this as information only. Strict rules of the UK Advertising Standards Authority prevent a Nutritional Therapist from claiming to treat just about any disorder. So please don't take this post to imply I claim to treat mood disorders such as depression, anxiety and stress successfully using nutritional supplementation.
You can of course draw your own conclusions about the worth of nutrition supplements.
