The food you eat is one such factor. Certain food items help to keep the condition away while some others worsen it. A new research has revealed a food item that belongs in the first category.

According to the researchers from the University of California, consuming walnuts may lower the prevalence and frequency of depression, and improve concentration levels.

This is because the nut has a unique fatty acid profile which contains many polyunsaturated fats including a high amount of omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid. Earlier, it was also found that walnuts are good for heart health as well.
