Mental well-being is more than simply the absence of symptoms or illness – it is the condition of feeling good and functioning well. Optimism, happiness, self-esteem, resilience and good relationships are also part of this mode of being.
Researchers have found that mental well-being were typically associated with the participants’ fruit and vegetable intake.
Of the studies done( dr. Stranges):
- 35.5% of participants with high mental well-being ate five or more portions of fruits and vegetables a day, compared with only 6.8% who consumed less than one portion.
- 31.4% of the individuals from the high mental well-being group ate three to four fruit and veg portions per day, and 28.4% ate one to two.
- Researchers also considered other health-related behaviours – such as smoking, alcohol intake and obesity – and found that only smoking and fruit and vegetable intake were consistently associated with mental well-being.
- Alcohol intake and obesity were associated with low, but not high mental well-being, the researchers add.
