Having analyzed 60,404 men and women aged 45 and older, the researchers come to the conclusion that moderate and vegetable intake lowered the stress risk in women by 23%, compared to the women who didn’t consume vegetables or fruits (or eat just one serving) per day.
The authors of the study write: “Fruit and vegetable consumption may help reduce the prevalence of psychological distress among middle-aged and older adults. However, the association between fruit and vegetable consumption and the incidence of psychological distress requires further investigation and possibly, a longer follow-up time.”
