Bel Marra Health, well known for offering high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is commenting on a recent study by Deakin University in Australia that shows a positive tie between red meat and mental health.
The study, which was published in the Journal of Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics, involved 1,000 female participants. The women were required to attend a clinical interview and to fill out a questionnaire about their diet, mental performance and mental health.
When the researchers compiled the data from the participants they expected to find further evidence that the consumption of red meat negatively affects physical and mental health and were shocked to find out the opposite.
The study showed that the women who consumed less than 64-100 grams of red meat, (3 to 4 times a week), were much more prone to mental health issues such as depression.
Lead researcher Felice Jacka, Ph.D. says, “when we looked at women consuming less than the recommended amount of red meat in our study, we found that they were twice as likely to have a diagnosed depressive or anxiety disorder as those consuming the recommended amount.”
Expert in Pulmonary Medicine and Spokesperson for Bel Marra Health Dr. Victor Marchione commented on the findings saying, “the majority of the cattle in Australia are reared in a healthy environment, where they are free to roam and graze and they are largely grass fed. This type of diet and lifestyle, results in nutrient dense meat which is vital to physical and mental health.”
