New Study: “Inflammation Linked to Weakened Reward Circuits in Depression”

According to a recent article, “About one third of people with depression have high levels of inflammation markers in their blood. New research indicates that persistent inflammation affects the brain in ways that are connected with stubborn symptoms of depression, such as anhedonia, the inability to experience pleasure.” Anhedonia is the inability to experience pleasure while on typical anti-depressants(SSRIs) that is linked to Brain Inflammation. In addition, “The findings bolster the case that the high-inflammation form of depression is distinct, and are guiding researchers’ plans to test treatments tailored for it.” Systemic inflammation involved numerous disease states now directly linked anhedonia, as well.

A person can reduce inflammation  via Omega 3 fatty acids and SPMs (specialized pro-resolving mediators), plus an anti-inflammatory diet and other natural approaches.
