Last year, researchers from the University of Leeds* in the UK discovered that consuming more fruit and vegetables improves mental well-being. Their findings indicate that eating just one extra portion of fruit or vegetable a day could have an equivalent effect on mental well-being to about eight extra days of walking a month for at least 10 minutes at a time.
One of the authors of the study, Dr Neel Ocean, said that while further work is needed to demonstrate cause and effect, ‘the results are clear: people who do eat more fruit and vegetables report a higher level of mental well-being and life satisfaction than those who eat less.’
