High Intake of Fruits and Vegetables May Help Lower Stress

Fruits and vegetables contain many vitamins and minerals that are good for your health. These include vitamins A, C, and E, magnesium, zinc, as well as other beneficial nutrients called polyphenols. According to a recent study, higher intake of fruits and vegetables may help reduce stress levels.

Participants in the study included 8,689 adults who took part in the Australian Diabetes, Obesity and Lifestyle Study. The researchers evaluated dietary intake of fruits and vegetables using a food frequency questionnaire. They evaluated perceived stress using a validated perceived stress questionnaire.

Participants with the highest intake of fruits and vegetables (at least 17 ounces daily) had 10% lower stress levels compared to those with the lowest intake (less than 8 ounces). The association between fruits and vegetables intake and lower stress was highest in middle-aged participants.

The study was conducted by researchers from the University of Western Australia. It was published online ahead of print on April 9, 2021 in the journal Clinical Nutrition.
