Depression and mental issues are common for millions of people, unfortunately a lot of them are hard to diagnose and even harder to treat. The good news is that a study released this week shows that a simple diet change can dramatically improve mental health for many patients. The study showed that patients who consumed proper portions of fruits and vegetables were significantly happier, less likely to be depressed, and less likely to develop various mental health issues.
This is a staggering result that even the doctors in charge did not expect. Apparently there are quite a few things that lead to this increase in happiness, one of the biggest is the obvious health benefits as a whole. People that consume proper amounts of fruit and vegetables are much more likely to be healthy in general and not overweight.
Essentially doctors are recommending that you continue to strive to eat an adequate amount of fruits and vegetables every day. This will not only keep your body healthy, it’ll keep your mind healthy too and that is obviously a big part of life. If you’re not eating enough fruits and vegetables maybe now is the time to get started, especially since the benefits just continue to add up.
