American researchers recently published a study in Journal Military Behavioral Health showing a connection between nutrition and levels of anxiety and stress.
The researchers enrolled over 350 soldiers to participate in their study to see if there is a relationship between food consumption behaviours and PTSD, depression, anxiety, and stress.

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you probably noticed that we like to talk about our research. The Truehope EMPowerplus formula is the most researched micronutrient formula in the world. It has been the subject of over 30 academic studies undertaken by nearly 50 independent researchers at 15 universities around the world.
We have never funded even a single study. We believe this arms-length, hands-off approach better reduces the risk of influence that we could have on the results.
Earlier this month, Greek researchers published a study in Mediterranean Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism showing that following 4 lifestyle practices could improve academic performance in teens.

Australian researchers recently published a study in Nutritional Neuroscience showing that nutritional intervention can have a more positive effect on depression than social support.
The researchers conducted a 12-week trial for over 60 participants, who were randomly assigned to one of two groups: diet intervention or social support. Roughly 80% of the participants were already being treated for depression (psychotherapy, medication, or both).
Those in the diet intervention groups received counselling sessions, recipes, and food samples for the following key food groups:
Last year, Indian researchers published a study in the Asian Journal of Home Science showing a connection between nutrition and the severity of ADHD symptoms.
The researchers studied 50 children who had ADHD symptoms and who were between the ages of 4 and 12. They were the split into two groups: a control group and a nutritional intervention group. During 6 sessions, researchers assessed their nutritional consumption and their ADHD symptom severity.
In 2009, Norwegian researchers published a study in the The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition regarding the role that the essential nutrient choline plays in mental health.
Studying nearly 6000 subjects, researchers discovered that levels of choline were related to anxiety levels: those with lower choline levels had higher levels of anxiety, and those with higher choline levels had lower levels of anxiety.
At the end of 2016, American researchers published a study in JAMA Pediatrics investigating the connection between ADHD stimulant use and bone mass in children.
Researchers analyzed 6 years of data collected from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey database, a series of cross-sectional, nationally representative health and nutrition surveys of the US population. Specifically, they looked at nearly 6,500 young people between 8 and 20 years of age.
