Raw Vegetables Can Boost Your Mood and Ward Off Depression
A new study, executed by the researchers from New Zealand, suggests that raw vegetables, carrot and spinach, can boost people’s mood, improve appetite, and ward off depression because they contain more essential nutrients than cooked vegetables and fruit.
For the study, the researchers analyzed the eating habits of more than 400 adults aged between 18 and 25. This age group believed to have the lowest consumption of fruit and vegetables. The analysis showed that people who consumed more raw fruit and vegetables had lower mental disease symptoms such as depression.
Lead researcher Dr. Tamlin Conner from the University of Otago says: “This research is increasingly vital as lifestyle approaches such as dietary change may provide an accessible, safe, and adjuvant approach to improving mental health.”
