Fruit: better as you age?
Nutraingredients.com, December 2017
You already know that fruits and vegetables are good for your body. You may have read that loading up on produce today can boost your mood tomorrow. But new research indicates that if you're over 30, fruit may be better for you than ever!
According to a study recently published in the journal Nutritional Neuroscience, fruit has an even bigger impact on mood as we get older than it did in our younger years.
The study enrolled both young adults (aged 18 to 29) and mature ones (aged 30 and over). Participants filled out questionnaires about their food intake, exercise habits, and mood. Researchers then analyzed the relationship between what the participants ate, how much they moved, and how they felt.
