How Diet Affects Bipolar Disorder

Thursday, 23 Jun 2011 03:38 PM

It is a little known fact that treating bipolar disorder also involves being aware of your food consumption. With minor dietary adjustments, bipolar sufferers can drastically reduce the pain caused by the illness.

Diet tips for those with bipolar disorder can include:

• Increase your intake of Omega 3 Fatty Acids — recent research has shown that eating more foods high in omega 3 fatty acids, such as nuts and fish, can lessen the effects of bipolar disorder

• Avoid simple carbohydrates and foods high in trans and saturated fats — these are considered unhealthy foods. They lead to quick weight gain and often worsen the symptoms of bipolar disorder.

• Eat foods that are rich in nutrients — foods that are high in minerals and vitamins, such as fruits and vegetables, will promote a healthy lifestyle and prevent weight gain.

These three simple adjustments can really improve the condition of those suffering from bipolar disorder.
