from Depression: A Nutrient Guide, Including
Depression in Pregnancy and
Postpartum, Amanda Rose,
Ph.D. and Annell Adams, M.D. identify the seven
nutrients most commonly associated with
depression in the medical literature. They

nutrients in their diet.
The book opens with Rose’s biography of
depression and psychosis. She makes a compelling
claim: “My grandmother died at the age of
sixty-one from complications of postpartum
depression.” Rose argues that her grandmother
showed signs of nutrient deficiencies in her 20s,
did not correct them, and suffered a life of
depression, diabetes, and heart disease, all of
which share a common nutrient deficiency: Omega 3
book describes the research basis for the
nutrient-depression link, highlighting the
nutrients with the strongest basis in research.

your Omega 3 status? Should you trim your steak?

the authors present “depression buster foods" –
