"A major nutritional deficiency of people with depression is in omega-3 fats, which help decrease inflammation and improve mood regulation," says Taz Bhatia, MD, integrative health expert at the Atlanta Center for Holistic and Integrative Medicine.

"It's been suggested that the omega-3s may change the composition of cell membranes or the function of their proteins."
