Magnesium and depression (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Depression är en av de stora folksjukdomarna i världen. Behovet av effektiv behandling är stort. Ny forskning studerar N-metyl-D-aspartat-receptorn och signalsubstansen glutamat för att utröna hur dessa påverkar känsloregleringen. Magnesium är med och reglerar glutamatsystemet.

Metod: Uppsatsen är en litteraturstudie och metoden har varit att granska åtta artiklar som studerat magnesium och depression och jämföra deras resultat. Sökord har varit Magnesium, depression, affective disorder, dietary magnesium intake depression.

Resultat: Artiklarna kom fram till olika resultat. Majoriteten av artiklarna visar på ett positivt samband mellan hög magnesiumnivå och minskade depressionssymptom.

Slutsats: En majoritet av studiernas resultat visar att magnesium har positiv effekt på symptom hos deprimerade personer. Behovet av effektiv behandling av depression är stort och mer forskning krävs.

Abstract [en]

Background: Depression is one of the most common diseases in the world. The need for effective treatment is urgent. Clinical studies have suggested a role of the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor in the glutamic system to have an important role in the mood regulate system. Magnesium is involved in the regulation of the glutamic system.

Method: This dissertation is a literature study that has methodologically examined eight articles on the association between magnesium and depression. The differing results were compared. Key word: Magnesium, depression, affective disorder, dietary magnesium intake depression.

Result: The articles results were divergent. The majority showed a positive correlation between high magnesium levels and decreasing depression symptoms.

Conclusion: A majority of the articles showed that magnesium has positive impact on depression status. Additional research is required.
