"Meat, fruit and vegetables can improve mood and mental health," food columnist Arnie Whiteman wrote to Medi-Cal News Today. However, the effect of food varies depending on the age of the person who consumes it. A recent study by researchers at the University of New York found that certain foods have different effects on the mood and mental health of adults and adolescents.
The researchers claimed that eating fruits and vegetables helps with psychological stability. They also found that red meat helps with depression. This effect depends on how red meat changes the chemicals in the human brain. According to research biologist Linda Beecht, the structure of the brain varies with age. "The maturation of the brain can not be finished until the age of 30, so the emotion regulation, attitude and recovery between adults and young people are different," he explained.
This means that the diet should be different according to age. Whiteman pointed out that meat and poultry are good for young people because they have brain chemicals that make them feel better like dopamine and serotonin in young people's brains. These foods can help young people feel better and improve their mental health. But it is good to eat with exercise. Also, because older people may have difficulty controlling stress, they should avoid foods that cause stress and cause psychological distress, Bezacchi explained.
