Association between dietary inflammation, mental health and sleep health

Project Details


Research has indicated that diet contributes to inflammation in the body and there is growing evidence showing the link between dietary inflammation and mental health outcomes, such as depression and anxiety, and sleep. Traditional dietary patterns, such as the traditional Japanese diet 'Washoku', characterized by a high intake of vegetables, fruits, soy products and sea foods, is associated with better mental health outcomes, while a Western diet is associated with worse mental health and poor sleep quality. Given the higher prevalence of common mental health disorders in the UK compared to Japan, the aim of this research is to explore the link between dietary inflammation, mental health and sleep across these population groups.
