A vegan diet may lower your stress and anxiety levels, according to a study published online in Nutritional Neuroscience. Researchers surveyed 620 vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores about mood. Increased fruit and vegetable intake resulted in lower anxiety scores for male vegan participants, compared with nonvegans. Female vegan participants experienced reduced stress levels as a result of their animal-free diets as well as their lower intakes of sweets.
