What is the science behind marketing foods for antidepressant effects?
If you go online, you can see claims about “coconut water Universe Beneficial for Depression”, and studies are even cited. You can see it for yourself in black and white – “A little coconut water relieves depression” – as shown at 0:16 in my video Old Friday memory: Coconut water and depression. Did they just make that up? No, if you click on the relevant link, there is he is in PubMedJust like they said. And for a limited time offer of only $39.95, the publisher will let you read the study, but why waste your time? It says in the title: “Little Coconut Water Relieves Depression…” You might also spend $40 buying some coconut water to improve your mood! Anyway, I’m reading all the studies, so no need for that. that’s my job!
So what does the study actually say? Started say that “plants are frequently tested for [sic] Antidepressant potential.” So far very good.” “So young coconut water, a commonly used plant beverage, was selected to explore its antidepressant potential.” Well, I’m still with you. So, “Rodents were selected for this study and a forced swim test was conducted to explore Antidepressant activity.” What or what?!
The forced swim test is “one of the most frequently used tests to explore antidepressant activity”. The transparent cylinder is filled with water to a level above the mouse’s head, so they are forced to swim. Then you drop a mouse into the water and see how long it struggles to prevent drowning before it simply succumbs and floats to the top. Ha, if you feed them some coconut water first, they hold up a little longer before they give up,” he showed.[ing] Antidepressant activity.” Therefore, “the results of this study can be considered as evidence for the use of young coconut water in depressive disorders” in people. What or what?! It saddens me even to read such missed research opportunities. Where did they come up with this idea?
she was invented By a group of French scientists in the 1970s to model “behavioral despair”. This reminds me of Harlow ExperiencesWhich included vertical confinement room Call “pit of despair. “It was basically a metal tool with slanted sides, as you can see at 2:15 in my country video. If you are a lock In a young monkey within which for 45 days, you can produce “profound and persistent behavioral abnormalities of a depressive nature in monkey subjects.” They end up curled up in a fetal position, hugging themselves, as you can see at 2:24 in my country video. After ten weeks alone in the room, they exhibited behaviors such as “connection attached,” where they gather together and hug each other for long periods of time. “He. She he is It is not yet clear why confinement in the vertical room is so effective in producing abnormal behavior…[but] Studies are in progress now, “So don’t worry. I’ll save you the same Research this was go run on puppies.
I can see why you would want to test new antidepressant drugs, but if you want to know if pomegranate has antidepressant effects, why not just feed people some pomegranate, instead of Throw Some rats at the deep end in a forced swimming test? There are literally thousands of published studies on foods or food products using this forced swim test. They allow the egg industry, for example, to Say Things like “Whole eggs can be a super food Prevent and relief from severe depression.” Why? Because mice struggled longer after being fed eggs before being forced to swim? In people, however, Removal eggs from the diet Improves Moods – though, the researchers also removed meat from their diet, so it’s not clear who did what. It’s also possible that the people were eating more healthy plant foods, such as soybeans. In fact, the soybean industry is happy to tell you.”decrease Depression-related behavior”…in postmenopausal rats, who were fighting for their lives in another compulsive swimming test.
Despite this, the best soy products that you may be able to do for people are simply work In addition to drugs like Prozac and Zoloft, as you can see at 3:57 in my country videoAnd we all know how little that actually is. I mean, the forced swim test is just an ‘A interaction To the acute stressful urge to exist Developed In a container with no escape route, human depression reflects a chronic subjective emotional state rather than a reaction to an individual stimulus. Most importantly, depression is…[an] The internal emotional state, and as of now, the subjective internal emotional state of the nonverbal species is unknown.” We couldn’t ask the animals how they felt. You couldn’t even just look at Human behavior and knowing if someone has a diagnosis of depression, so it’s “impossible to conclude with certainty that the FST [forced swim test] It is a scale or test for depression, or a “depression-like” condition. However, the “ease” with which thousands of scientists do so is “disturbing” in that it makes an assumption that “discourages critical thinking.” In fact, “flotation was a standard in the past for Judge The result of witchcraft is forced swimming, but today it is used to describe rodents as depressed.”
Isn’t that incredible? Now you know why I’m trying to stick to human studies NutritionFacts.org.
what about Coconut Water for Sports Performance vs. Sports Drinks? Watch the video to learn more.
- Coconut water has been touted as being beneficial for depression, but studies have been cited to support the claim that it was not only performed on rodents rather than humans, but was a mandatory swimming test where researchers see how long the animals struggle to avoid drowning beforehand. simply give up.
- Researchers claim that when rats are given coconut water before being forced to swim to save their lives, they are able to survive a little longer before giving up,”[ing] antidepressant activity.” Therefore, “the results of this study can be considered as evidence for the use of young coconut water in depressive disorders” in people.
- Other experiments on questionable animals include Harlow’s, who uses a “pit of despair” – a metal tool with slanted sides. The researchers found that confining a young monkey indoors for 45 days can produce “profound and persistent behavioral abnormalities of a depressive nature,” in which the animals curl up in the fetal position, and hug themselves.
- Thousands of studies published on food or food products have used the forced swim test. The egg industry, for example, claims that whole eggs may be helpful in treating depression because mice that were fed eggs before being forced to swim struggled longer in the water. Despite this, moods have been shown to improve in humans Removal Eggs were removed from the diet, although meat was also removed, so it is not clear which did what. The soy industry also claims that soy-lowering behaviors are associated with depression – albeit in postmenopausal rats who were also used in the forced swim test.
- Soy products may be able to work as well as drugs like Prozac and Zoloft in humans, but that doesn’t mean much.
- The forced swim test is “a response to acute stressful stimuli to be placed in a container with no escape route, and human depression reflects a chronic subjective emotional state rather than a reaction to an individual stimulus. Importantly, depression is…[an] The internal emotional state, and as yet, the subjective internal emotional state of the nonverbal types is unknown.”
- “[I]It is impossible to conclude with certainty that the FST [forced swim test] It is a scale or test for depression, or a “depression-like” condition. In fact, “buoyancy was a criterion in the past for judging the outcome of witchcraft for forced swimming, but today it is used to label ferrets depressed.”
