Depression is a common problem that affects teenagers and young adults. It can be triggered by multiple things, ranging from stress to a hormonal imbalance. While helping young people overcome symptoms of depression has been a priority as of late, a new study further illustrates why it is vital to help relieve stress in young people.
Research conducted at Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health has found that the risk of death from heart disease is increased in depressed young adults. The study included males and females between the ages of 17 and 39 nationwide, surveyed through the National Center for Health Statistics. The results showed a dramatic increase in risk for heart disease mortality in both men and men who were depressed or had a history of attempted suicide.
“Direct physiological effects of depression may play a greater role than lifestyle factors in this young population,” the authors of the study explained. “Studying [these] individuals more intensively could be important for understanding how depression affects the heart.”
Symptoms of depression can be relieved without potentially harmful chemical prescriptions. Dr. Newton’s Naturals offers multiple all-natural supplements that can reduce stress and offset symptoms of depression. For example, Vital B-100 provides proper levels of vitamin B, which is important for proper neurological and physical functioning.
