A research team found that eating raw vegetables and uncooked fruits is better for mood and mental health, compared to eating them in canned or cooked foods.
Most of the previous studies focused on the amount of healthy vegetables and fruits, whether for the body or for the psychological state, and the new study, which relied on the participation of volunteers from New Zealand and the United States, is distinguished by testing the method of cooking or providing these nutrients and their impact on mental health.
The study was published in the journal “Frontiers in Psychology”, and urged eating raw vegetables and fruits before they undergo any changes due to cooking or processing, because that changes their nutritional composition. Experience has shown that eating raw vegetables and fruits increases a sense of life satisfaction, reduces depression, and helps prevent mental illnesses.
